Happy Happy Birthday, Paul!

I am not entirely sure exactly when it is but I think this is about the right time.

First, I got some random people to pose for you.

Then, I baked some cakes.
Cake 1
Cake 2

I got kind of carried away. Two more.
Cake 3
Cake 4

Then I realized they are not really good for your teeth anymore. So I threw a party on your behalf because I don't like cakes too much either. These people came.

Thankfully all of them were very fond of cake. When it was all gone, we realized we HAD to do something special for you, our birthday boy in absentia. So we then did some communal and healthful art for you.

One of my guests decided that was not personal enough. So you got this mugshot:

Some of the younger guests thought all that was too sterile and made this instead:

Overall, all our sentiments are summed up (in a non-fire-hazard way) as:


NB: Stolen from around the web. You know who you are if it is yours. Quit whining.

Mapo tofu recipe

Just a placeholder for the recipe I want to try someday (not today):

From "The Jing Theory". The photographs are amazing.

And there is Vegan Worchestershire Sauce, in two ways. Not just one.
I don't know what the second way is. But the way that is immediately visible on that page seems abysmally time-consuming and for people with premeditation in their lives. Not me. I will probably make a hash of it and love it anyway.

Indian grocery on West Side?!!!

I heard that there is now a bonafide Indian grocery somewhere on west side near Connecticut st. and one of the other Thai stores. And that it has been open for a couple months now.

What?! Really?!!!

Where is it? Has anyone seen it? (e:metalpeter), you live close, do you know its exact location? I now want to trawl all over the place in the snow to find it. But some of those streets can be a tad sketchy sometimes. Someone I met at the Indian grocery at Jackson Heights, and who recognized me from Pricerite told me about it... but I didn't quite catch its name, or its location.

Françoise Hardy: French Joan Baez

Heh. I listen to this and all I can think of is.. hey, when did Joan Baez start singing in French. :)

And this has to be the most unsettling song to sing to a kid.

A medieval version of that where they cut out the disturbing bits. LOL

Another version of All the pretty little horses. Instead of singing about the dying baby being attacked by the elements at the end of the meadow, now it's about birds and butterflies fluttering about its eyes.

Stokowski. Period.

The ultimate transcriptions stop at Stokowski.

Seriously, I think I enjoy his transcriptions waay more than the originals. Under his unique influence, somehow the frenetic ornamentations of the baroque era are magically lifted and transformed into the stately pace of the classical era. This is Vivaldi's oh-so-baroque classic, sounding as if it was written during Beethoven's times. It is played in the video by the magnificent BBC Philharmonic under Matthias Bamert.
