Less than a month after Friday night's photos!

Saturday night at Whitby Goth Weekend November 2016 featured Chasing Dragons, Children On Stun, Skeletal Family, and The Mission, all of whom have played WGW before - although for some, it's been quite a while! The Mission, notably, played substantially extended sets to mark their return after so many years, with Evi Vine on additional vocals.

An interesting, if fairly short, BBC article on changes in Antarctic building design. These days, they mostly look like James Bond sets, but there's some really impressive work going into them - whether from the viewpoint of energy efficiency or consideration for the needs of the occupants for various sense cues that are otherwise in short supply in the environment.


Lighting 103: Introduction

Abstract: Our flashes are calibrated to produce white light. But in the real world, white light is a rarity.

Sara Lando (your mollusk portraitist from Lighting 102) gives a thumbs up while spending a week assisting for photographer Gregory Heisler (seen squinting through camera).

She was assisting Greg for a week of shooting and teaching at Gulf Photo Plus in Dubai. Sara learned a ton of stuff, duly reported on in a three-part series that to this day remains one of the most popular pieces ever written on this site.

Many of the things she learned while following Greg around had little to do with photography: his work ethic, thought process, etc. (Seriously, read the series.) But the week also changed the way Sara thought about light, her most important takeaway being this:

"White light is a lie."

You probably already know that I'm not much of a sweets-for-breakfast kind of guy, which is why I've really been digging savory breakfast bowls lately. With a base of grains or seeds, some veggies, and a protein, they're balanced, flavorful and delicious. This one is a particular favorite with kale, farro, and an egg, dressed with balsamic sesame vinaigrette. Head over to PBS Food for my full post and recipe.

Cherry Vanilla Granola

When I was growing up in the 80's granola was widely considered to be a health food. So much so, that "granola" and words associated with it like "crunchy" have became synonymous with those living a healthy lifestyle. As a kid, mom never bought us those rainbow colored breakfast cereals that all kids are drawn to, but granola was given a pass. In retrospect, it's a bit ironic, given than most commercial granola contains as much sugar and fat as many of the "bad" cereals. Granola does however contain a decent amount of fiber and while it may not be...

dancefloorlandmine: DJing at B-Movie Nov 04 (DJ)
[personal profile] dancefloorlandmine
First set of the New Year, this time for a community event with secondary elements of birthday celebration. The Cavendish Arms in Stockwell is a short stroll from public transport, and features a comfortable, sofa-filled, main bar area, with a back room that is properly set up for comedy, bands, cabaret, and the like, with a small stage, PA, XLR patch-bay and so on - so we set up a pair of trestles on the stage and got to it. The evening's music was split between me and DJ Frabjous (aka Katy and Lucy) who have also DJ'd for BiCon previously. The first part of the evening was quiet(ish) music to entertain while people arrived and ate (the pub serves rather good pizzas), steadily building up to music to dance to.

Setlists below (with links to a couple of the tracks) )

It seemed to go pretty well, and there are faint thoughts of doing it again as a public event ...

Best of 2016

At the risk of sounding cliché, I can’t believe how fast this year’s gone by. Maybe it's a sign that I'm getting older, but it seems like only yesterday I was sifting through my dishes of 2015 in search of my favorites. Well, wherever the time went, we're at the end of another year and that means, I have to pick my favorites from well over 100 dishes I created this year. But first, just a quick recap of 2016. For some reason I guess I was really digging Asian food this year as 7 of the top 10 were...

Pappa al Pomodoro

I'm not a big believer in detox diets, but with a particularly festive holiday season behind me, my stomach needs a break from rich food and booze. For some reason, I hosted an unusually large number of holiday dinners this year and while I usually do a pretty good job at planning portions, one thing that's inevitably left over, is the bread. At one point after a back-to-back spate of dinners, I literally had bags of stale bread sitting in my kitchen. Loath to waste food, I've been making lots of Pappa al Pomodoro. It's a rustic Tuscan bread porridge...
