muji spice book
Traveling with your spice rack is not ideal. This is why Japanese company, Muji, has made a book of spices to make flavoring your food while away from home a little bit easier.
This book from Muji is full of pages that are made of spiced paper, which dissolve from the heat and moisture of cooking. Now that kick of white pepper or red chili is just a tear away. And, since it is compact and perfectly portable, the Muji spice book is ideal for when you’re traveling!
Cult classic set design appreciation post (Space Odyssey is just a regular classic, I suppose).
Manhunter (1986), THX1138 (1971), Phase IV (1974), Logan’s Run (1976), 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), Enter the Void (2009), Solaris (1972), Beyond the Black Rainbow (2010),
Roughly speaking, the era’s visions of the future can be divided into two camps: Those that imagine chaos, and those that imagine a horrifying sort of order. Sometimes the same fear could produce a different imagined future: The prospect of the world running out of resourcesresulted in both the authoritarian nightmares of Soylent Green andZ.P.G., and the violent tribalism of No Blade Of Grass. Neither possibility looked particularly appealing. Neither do those presented in two films from 1971, one of which imagines a world on the verge of being overrun by the violent ids of a barbaric younger generation, and the other, one locked down tight enough to squeeze the humanity from its citizens. Both make cases for keeping the human spirit liberated, but they go about it differently, and with varying degrees of success. And both build their horrific futures from the materials of the present.
The Laser Age considers the threads of humanity running through the oppressive futures of A Clockwork Orange and THX-1138.
a new zine called shitty horoscopes that i’ll be premiering this year at the Toronto Queer Zine Fair, among other things! hopefully i’ll make volumes available for online purchase soon. credit where credit is due: this was inspired by the huge number of made-up horoscopes floating around tumblr lately, and angry-poems.
Mine actually sounds pretty accurate …
Most people consider mushrooms to be the small, ugly cousins of the plant kingdom, but theirs is surprisingly beautiful and wonderful world waiting to be explored. These beautiful mushrooms, captured by enthusiastic nature photographers, are a far cry from the ones you find in the woods or your local grocery store.
Most mushrooms, as we know them, are actually just the reproductive structure of the fungus they belong to – their fungal networks expand far further underground, and some fungi don’t even sprout the sort of mushrooms that we’re used to seeing. In fact, depending on your definition of “organism,” the largest living organism in the world is a fungus – there’s a honey mushroom colony in Oregon that occupies about 2,000 acres of land!

Life is like a cassette tape; The important thing is to keep on rolling. You'll turn over every so often, but try not to get chewed up.
Appreciate the hiss and wobble, and play it to the end.
