A Poem About Last Night

I walked down the street
so did you
It was nice and breezy so we went on a walk
I don't know where you were going
your bag full of your belongings
my hands and pockets empty
with your fist going towards my face
I thought I was in the way of your insanity
your hand and my face didn't meet
so I continued walking down the street

Maybe twenty years too late, but I would totally wear the crawling baby earrings.

Kodak 1922 Kodachrome Film Test

A sample of some of the earliest color motion picture film you will see.

As I mentioned before, I am feeling overly stimulated with technology and everything being so instant in my life. The fact that I'm reading a book that deals with digital age of art and commerce called Remix by Lawrence Lessig, I can't stop picking apart the amount of overwhelming stimulation I am receiving on a daily basis. Watching something like this video above makes me nostalgic and impresses me much more than even this laptop I am typing on. My life is color television, and I knew nothing other than that. I even thought life back in the 20s and 30s was in Black and White when I was a kid. Now, as I read this book and watch this video, I think back to the times when I didn't spend 80% of my day on the computer. The times that Facebook or Email wasn't part of my daily vocabulary. Even having a cell phone was something only Zach Morris had. I'm so "in touch" that I feel out of touch. But this Kodachrome film test is just plain amazing and unreal.

This might be it!

This might be the recipe I found on Canelle et Vanille that will actually get me to cook!

Bella Cerise and Raspberry Swirl Frozen Mousse

3 eggs
3 egg yolks
3/4 cup (150 grams) sugar
1/3 cup (100 grams) apricot puree
2 cups (450 ml) heavy cream, whipped to soft peaks
1 1/2 cups (150 grams) raspberries
1 Tbs sugar

Whip the heavy cream to soft peaks and keep in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Puree the raspberries and the sugar and set aside.

Place the eggs, egg yolks and sugar in the bowl of an electric stand mixer. Place the bowl over a water bath and whip the eggs and sugar mixture for about 5 minutes until it thickens. Transfer the bowl to the mixer and continue whipping in high speed until the eggs have cooled. It will be thick. Fold in the apricot puree, followed by the soft peak cream.

Transfer the cream to a glass or metal baking dish or small jars. Spoon in some of the raspberry puree and make swirls through the apricot cream with a spoon or wooden skewer.

Transfer to the freezer and serve frozen.
