I have been a mega fan of David Neale’s work (and his rad blog!) for a long time. But I’ve never bought any of his pieces because he makes mostly rings, and I hate wearing rings. (Also super impractical for a baker). But now that he’s making the Sunrise style in a beautiful gold bangle, I could see myself buying this piece… oh it’s so amazing!

Last summer I wrote a story about Sasha, one of my favorite people in the world, and Ithaca, one of my favorite places in the world, for the new food quarterly ACQUIRED TASTE. Finally the issue is out. Even though it seems like that particular evening was a million years ago, I’m so happy with how it came out, and it makes me feel good to remember those times and that summer. I’ll never get over the tiny thrill of seeing my photos in a glossy mag, it’s almost more exciting than seeing my words in print.

This Thursday, October 6, I will be collaborating with the tremendously talented musician Jon Mueller (whom I’ve also had the pleasure of interviewing for Paris Transatlantic) for a workshop that he is presenting as part of the Viva! Art Action Festival. I was thrilled when Jon asked me if I would conceptualize of an eating component to the workshop — I don’t want to give it away here, but it will be unlike anything I’ve ever done. Some details on the workshop:
Jon Mueller,’s workshop, entitled Listening and Creativity, will explore the process of listening and identify how that process can benefit one’s creative output regardless of discipline. Through stories and a series of cards, each individual will think about their own personal work, experience, and life in order to identify and act on areas of improvement.
For more information, visit Viva! Art Action. Reservations are free and open to anyone! Email Mathieu Beauséjour at firstname.lastname@example.org to save your spot.
Also. Many thanks to everyone who came out on a rainy Saturday night for the Xela, Corridors, High Aura’d, and Le Révélateur concert. It was a great night!
Sketched out a poster for an upcoming concert in the hour before I left for work. Somehow, even when it’s not about food, it’s still about food. Feels nice to doodle again. It would be nice to get back into silkscreening and make proper concert posters, but this is okay for now. (Also, this concert is going to be incredible. Please come out!)
I recently “commissioned” my talented and awesome friend Gigi Kaufman to do the first ever portrait of me and Joni. I am so stoked with the results. She really nailed it. I mean, my hair is exactly like that! My friend Alison said it best: “It’s how I imagine you guys would interact if she had opposable thumbs and drank alcohol.”

I mean, I can’t be the only one to have noticed this, right? The ripoff is egregious and unmistakable.
The event isn’t for a few more weeks, but I couldn’t wait any longer to share this rad news. I was commissioned to write a story about having my tarot cards read by Alejandro Jodorowsky — yes, that Jodorowsky. One of the many reasons why I love being a writer. I have no idea what to expect, only that it will be insane.

More palms, by California-based Italian sculptor Benny Bufano. [Via an ambitious project collapsing]
And a witchy ring that I would actually wear every day. It uses my three favorite materials: lapis, opal (my birthstone!), and gold. [via Erie Basin]
I already own the pants, and these tops are just as perfect. I’d like them both, please. It’s like embodying these landscapes, or being the woman in these photos. Beautiful work by Rachel Comey, as usual.
