Paleo, no gluten, no sugar, no nightshades. Oh, and I make music.

Apple pear pie with gluten free crust. Not exactly SCD legal (not al all SCD legal), but at least no gluten. The hardest part is waiting for the pie to “set.”  Optimally, for this big of a pie, you should wail 2 hours. It would be a miracle if we waited 30 minutes.

It is much easier to slice bacon into matchsticks for making bacon sprinkles if the individual slices of bacon are frozen.

“I’ve stopped trying to fix my father. He’s in poor health, and I’ve been trying to get him to exercise more and eat right. Every time I would visit him, I’d suggest improvements to his diet and routine. He’d never listen, I’d get frustrated, he’d get angry, and it would always end in tension. So I’ve decided to let it go, and spend our remaining time together on his terms.”

We should all stop trying to fix other people.  We do not and will not know what path their journey should take.  Fixing ourselves is all the person-fixing that should be done.

Yet another fine stock I’ve gotten myself into.

Finally got my bacterial body spray! I ordered it in July! There’s a small chance I will never shower again.

If you know the name of my band, please start liking/following it on tumblr, Facebook, ‘ello, and/or twitter if you haven’t already. This weekend, there should be an announcement. I can message you details, but i’ll never mention the name on anything associated with me because we are determine to keep it anonymous, and I don’t want anything searchable.

(Omg, guys. I think it’s for real this time! So. Excited!)


Seeing this sign is not a random occurrence. It’s a message.

Just sitting in an empty playground in Bed-Stuy on a beautiful fall morning because I’m too early for the final mix of our record.

I made plantain pancakes this morning and topped them with Artisana coconut butter, Rawtella, Mountain Sweet Berry Farms strawberries, Berried Treasure Farm raspberries, and passion fruit.  

I had a leftover marrow bone that I forgot to cook last night, so I also made that this morning (in my way of chopping garlic, parsley and shiitakes together and tossing that with salt and fat - I used bacon grease this time - and topping the marrow with it to bake).  I tried it on the last pancake that was left.  It was good, but of the ginger, allspice, clove powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg I put in my pancake batter, something clashed a little bit.  I would highly recommend bone marrow on pancakes, but they should be neutral pancakes, or spiced in a savory way.

Category: Invertebrates You have been warned Alex Mustard (United Kingdom)
When Alex went diving in the Lembeh Strait in North Sulawesi, he was on a mission to celebrate the smaller sea creatures. Equipped with a new high-magnification lens, he encountered this variable neon nudibranch (sea slug) crawling across the seabed. Less than 2 centimetres (an inch) long, with green gills on its back and orange mouthparts, it has orange, feather-like rhinophores that it uses to ‘smell’ out its prey – sea squirts. It incorporates distasteful chemicals from the sea squirts’ skin into a slimy mucus and uses neon colours to warn predators that it tastes bad. Alex wanted an eye-level view of this unforgettable mollusc. But even with a small aperture, it was a challenge: there was little depth of field (amount in focus) and the subject was moving – and a slug’s pace under magnification is surprisingly fast.

Dayglo (niteglo?) Animal. Awesome.
Every photo in the article was amazing, but reading through all of the explanations was intense.  One was horrible - For photo #3, one of the people on the photography team got pneumonia and another died after spending a week in an unheated house nearby, and the frozen bunker where they got the shot!

Sorry to brag (not sorry), but here’s yet another jar of mayo finished before the expiration date. BOOM, babies. B.O.O.M.

Ok, we are where we want to be with our mix and only need to finalize it (and finalize artwork).  I’m making our bandcamp store and ran across this in the FAQs, and thought it was hilarious!

How do I make the embedded player autostart?

Welcome home! We trust your 8 year expedition to the heart of the Amazon was a great success. SO much has happened since you left. The first Delawarean was elected Vice President of the United States, the Chronicles of Riddick defied box office expectations, and tabbed browsers became commonplace. As a result, many web enthusiasts now open tabs as they surf. Autostarting media players don’t play well with this behavior, since they put you in a position of wondering whoah, where is that sound coming from and then force you to play find-the-tab-making-your-eardrums-bleed. AUTOSTART IS EVIL is a fairly common refrain nowadays, and who are we to disagree?

FYI: omg, these are CRACK!

Don’t say I didn’t warn you.  I just ate a whole bag in 5 minutes.  I was actually pouring it into my mouth at the end.  Super klassy.
