Absolutely incredible remix of “Papi Pacify,” by FKA Twigs, by LA’s Kanga.

Please enjoy the chopped and screwed echoes, undulations, and pickaxe-whispers, as they swell, crash and whip against the face like an audio-pistol.

La Grande Bellezza (The Great Beauty) is one of the best films I’ve seen in a long time.

It immediately evokes La Dolce Vita, but with significant departures. It’s been written about for its style, but it matches its stunning visuals and breathtaking cinematography with a brilliant script and excellent acting and execution. Paolo Sorrentino visually and audibly choreographs the fête— hyper-stylized and glamorized —and then pulls you into the void of the hangover.  

It’s a film following the life of a writer and the memories provoked by his 65th  birthday party. It tackles a lot, and does so intelligently: lust, love, voyeurism vs. exhibitionism (ascetic vs flaneur?), the power of emotional honesty /candidness, community and its limits, aging, death, memory. 

Watch it (and message me if you see it- I would love to hear from you) 

I am from Kashan
My lineage may reach a plant in India
A relic from the soil of Sialk
Or perhaps a prostitute from Bukhara

To my roommate is a genius. She’s making Central Asian deviled eggs: with yellow curry, sumac and Aleppo pepper.

I’m so down. I threw out the idea of doing saffron and dill deviled eggs next time. She’s down, it’s happening
