Weekend linkage

Ya'll watch this. Tree-climbing in the Congo next weekend, anyone?

I'd never seen Annie Vallotton's Scripture illustration work before reading this article, but I like it very much.

To keep in mind next time you go poisoning pigeons in the park . . .

A way to make bacon? For serious? I need some pork belly!

Fish a la greque: this was one seriously good dinner.


p.s. I was at a friend's house on Sunday night and watched The Voice for the first time. It was likely also the last, because 1) we lack a television 2) Christina Aguilera is annoying 3) I cannot handle this stuff. It is just too ABSORBING and EMOTIONAL and EXCITING and TRAGIC and good Lord, I don't even know these people! Personally, I have a hard enough time keeping up with the real relationships in my life . . . I can't add a TV show to the mix . . . how do people with televisions manage it?

Well, I hope Adam wins anyway. Because I like Maroon 5 (I do! I confess!) and Tony Lucca was amazing. He was the only contestant whose hypothetical record I would pop into the CD player and listen to on repeat.

  1. You almost lost me with the Maroon5 praise; but Ray Montagne saves you.

  2. Yup. I'm hopeless.

    ECLECTIC I mean.
