No special reason for sharing this. Just got it stuck in my head whilst playing GTA 4. Awesome song!
Without the use of Photoshop or any digital manipulation, Korean artist JeeYoung Lee spends weeks converting her tiny Seoul studio into some of the most elaborate installations we’ve seen—for the sake of taking a single photograph.
Ouzo, ‘tis a magical drink. Clear one moment, opaque the next. A fitting analogy for life I must say.
We’re living in a golden age of stuffing our pieholes. And because there are so many mad-genius chefs and mixologists out there right now, we have a problem: separating the merely great from the transcendent, book-a-flight, text-everyone-you-know stuff. So we gorged our way across America to divine the country’s fifty best dishes and drinks, from brisket tacos and chinese pork-belly sandwiches to carbonated margaritas and cilantro lime ice cream. Grab a fork, a pair of chopsticks, a straw, or hell, just use your hands.

The Cronut: Believe the Hype
Dominique Ansel Bakery, NYC
This past May, chef Dominique Ansel debuted the Cronut—a half doughnut, half croissant. Immediately, weird shit started happening. Hoping to get one before they sold out, people lined up at 6 a.m. A Cronut black market arose on Craigslist, forcing Ansel to institute a two- Cronuts-per-customer limit. His pastry hybrid has left a wake of knockoffs and a lot of chefs muttering, “Why didn’t I think of that?” It all sounds ludicrous, until you get a bite of the airy, buttery layers injected with silky cream, all of it sheathed in a sugary, crackling shell. Then you get in line.
