3 Ingredient Tagalongs
Gluten free vegan cookie hack. I actually dream about these cookies.
So, Britain’s leading exponent of churnalism and right-wing panic mongering asked me if they could use pictures from this tumblr on their soft porn website (it’s called The Mail Online, a clever code name).
I told them ‘no thanks’, mainly because I don’t like anything they stand for, in…
INT. CASTELLO SFORZESCO, LATE AFTERNOON
M: Guarda che si vede?!
L: How ARE you, dude? And what’s your name again?
M: Hehe. Quanto tempo che non ci vediamo?
L: Few hours, maybe.
M: It’s almost closing time. We better get going.
L: You know, I’ve always wanted to sleep in a castle.
M: No, don’t even.
L: If we’re preoccupied, but quiet, in a closet or something and accidentally get locked in somehow …
Really great piece. The kind of thing that Emily Post may have written if she were 1) on tumblr 2) alive and 3) pissed.
I used to write a website about movies and television with the occasional Think Piece on Gwyneth Paltrow’s spending power. It is a website that just happens to be closing up shop for good tomorrow, unfortunately. Ours was a love the world could not understand. R.I.P.
By the end of my tenure at the soon (so soon) to be defunct pop culture website, it genuinely felt like I was reading the Entire Internet every day, and the only takeaway one can have from reading the Entire Internet every day is that the Internet is 100% Horrible. There’s a common sense that the Internet is just a collection of sad adolescent trolls hiding in their parents’ basements throwing digital feces through the proverbial bars, but the truth is much worse. Everyone is throwing the digital feces. The trolls just enjoy it a little more.
So, one of the most wonderful aspects of stopping writing for that website on a daily basis was that I also stopped reading other websites on a daily basis. With rare exception, I haven’t LOOKED at a blog in six months, much less read one. I still look at Tumblr most days, but Tumblr might as well be Instagram. It hardly counts.
And yet, I somehow have not managed to escape Blog Culture, because Blog Culture has become so pervasive that we are all doomed to a wasteland future of ad hominem non-jokes, knee-jerk unreflective judgements punched out on iPads during commercial breaks, and a Smithsonian’s worth of #selfies.
Seems only fitting to round up my favorite chocolate recipes for Valentine’s Day. They’ll be easier to find. Not to brag, but I use at least one of these recipes on a daily basis. If chocolate is your consuming passion too, you’ll love these faves.
