Line ’em up

Sometimes life is chaotic, and it’s nice to have a sense of order…

Even if it is only in your fruits and vegetables.

Brittany Wright is a photographer based in Seattle who is teaching herself to cook ‘anything and everything’ and, lucky for us, is documenting her efforts on her very colorful, very orderly Instagram account.

Here’s a peek at some of her artwork.

I feel more zen already.

Egg on the wall

Isn’t this a beautiful image?

It reminds me of that Kohler faucet TV commercial:  I want to design a room around it.

It, in this case, is an omelet with a mushroom base. A pastry brush was used to create the stripes. It is one of many intriguing works of food art in the six-volume Modernist Culture: The Art and Science of Cooking by Nathan Myhrvold and his team of Seattle-based chefs.

Myhrvold is renown for his use of modern techniques and space-age ingredients.

I just like the pretty pictures.

I’ve been rather obsessed with Downton Abbey lately, and a good friend asked if it was time for an intervention.

It might be now.  But not just for me.

Adam WarRock, the Internet’s ‘foremost comic book rapper,’ has gone gaga for Downton Abbey, too.

A rapper….all wrapped up in the soap opera at Grantham Hall.  He even posted a confession on his website:

Downton Abbey is the kind of thing that you hear about, and you’re all like, “That sounds terrible.” And then even one of your best friends won’t shut up about it, and then you have to fly to Seattle, and you watch it on the plane, and get completely obsessed with it. And then you’re calling your friend and saying things like “I’m at the part where Matthew Crawley is investigating the entail for Lord Grantham, and the Dowager Countess finds out about it,” and you realize you’re whispering because honestly, what the HELL are you even saying?

I love this guy.

Now he’s gone one step farther and written a rap about Downton Abbey. You gotta give it a listen.

Can’t see any problem with that!
