There’s this sweater from Elizabeth and James that I can’t stop thinking about. So I tried to go to elizabethandjames.com just to check on the sweater. Make sure it was doing okay, ya know?
I didn’t bother to google, the URL seemed obvious to me, http://www.elizabethandjames.com:

p.s. This is the sweater that started it all. I know, I know. But it’s super soft and way more special looking in person (and in black). I swear:

Incase you guys are in the mood to challenge your culinary skills this Thanksgiving, here’s a recipe for Pineapple Slices, courtesy of this girl:
I recommend you get a good night’s rest before taking on this project. Pineapple Slices can go way wrong if you don’t pay close attention to each step.
I’ve taken the liberty of posting the actual recipe, incase clicking on a link is something you struggle with:
“Quarter the pineapple lengthwise. Using a thin, sharp knife cut core away from each wedge by making a shallow slice the length of the pineapple. Follow the skinof the pineapple and cut the fruit away from it using your knife, keeping the green tops attached. Next, cut pineapple into 1/2-inch slices. Each quarter pineapple will now hold several wedges. Separate fruit by sliding wedges alternately to the left then to the right. Each completed pineapple serving will look like a boat filled with the fruit slices.”
If you manage to not fuck this up, your finished dish should look something like this:
I know I can’t handle something this advanced, so I’m not even going to try. But if anyone else does, and it works out, please tell us about it in the comments section of this post!
p.s. The comments about this recipe on the Food Network’s site are pretty funny.
This dude David Barksdale, an ex Google engineer, was fired because he was snooping around people’s emails and chats and shit. Ya know, just reading. For fun.
Read the article, it gets a little pedophile-ish, right? I don’t know much about this guy other than he loves toxic waste and hates getting haircuts. But that’s fucked up.
Google is continuing to piss me off lately…
So yeah there was a riot last night at a show with three very different artists playing. I can’t say I’m surprised. Here’s what The Village Voice’s Zach Baron said:
The primary theater of battle? The northern side of the Seaport, where fans standing on the balcony in front of shops and restaurants began raining bottles down on the crowd below, who promptly returned fire. As things escalated, the bottles turned from plastic to glass. Then, at the peak of the fight, kids on the upper level began tossing steel chairs off the balcony. That was when people really started to run. It was also about at that moment that the police finally broke through the crowd and stormed the second level, where they too were momentarily pelted with bottles. We watched a few kids on the deck attempt to shove or otherwise assault the cops who were trying desperately to clear them out. In turn, more than one officer took out her baton, though the police had the situation in hand relatively quickly.
After that, it was mostly crowd dispersal, and stray fights. Helicopters buzzed overhead. Standing across from the Seaport, we watched as hundreds of kids suddenly went scrambling away from the stage area in terror. We asked one why he was running. “Mace,” he said.
Impressive. Yet, what are these parents thinking?
