My Mother's Recipe as Told by Ghost

Chop up your carrots, celery, small onion and pancetta nice and fine, boom...don't be slouchy nahmean? Use a bit of finesse. Use a sharp knife too, don't be foolish and mess with one of them dull, old rickety joints nahmean?

Heat up a pot, one of them non-stick joints. Spend a lil' money for that quality, don't be one of them smart, dumb cats. Toss in those fresh ingredients til you hear that sizzle...boom. Cook for about 15 mins, medium high, then pour in your chicken stock, 2 bay leaves and bring to a boil.

Then drop in your rinsed lentils, good for the heart, nahmean....this is good cuz you can get your grind on, boom, whateva whateva..
Boil on high for about 10-12 mins, go kiss your girl in the meantime, boom, do some push ups, get healthy, boom, blue and cream. Make sure you stir frequently, turn down the boil, throw a lid on halfway and cook for another 20-25 minutes nahmean? I wanna see how many y'all really true to me, nahmean?

You can never act like your stomach ain't full, nahmean? Boom.

Vuarnet and a Swatch Watch

Alot of the other kids wanted to beat me up, but I was a fast runner, so fuck off.

My life at 14 consisted of skateboarding, burning things, eating lots of Skittles, cereal and other shit like that, throwing snowballs at cars then running away, blowing up cherry bombs, getting pimples, throwing eggs at houses, getting bad grades, discovering Sex Pistols and Black Flag, kissing girls, stealing wood from construction sites and building launch ramps, putting stickers on fucken everything, drawing the Anarchy symbol on duotangs, dubbing cassette tapes, buying comic books, reading Poweredge, finding myself, getting grounded, trying to run away from home then catching a beating from my brother and crying in my bedroom.

But, unlike kids nowadays, I didn't have to wear a helmet to do these things.

Spike Jonze's I'm Here

When it comes to clumsy robot love, this short film takes the cake. But, I also have a different perspective where I perceive this to be about a manipulative, selfish bitch. But I can be biased as I tend to feel pity towards lonely, delicate humans. In the case of Spike Jonze's "I'm Here" the delicate, lonely human is actually a robot. You can tell from the get go that he's one of those peculiar, bashful dudes that ladies tend to love. And the love he finds in a witty, spontaneous, more futurstic robot chick couldn't stop me from becoming his biggest cheerleader. It's a rather emotional film that might have you holding back tears, surprisingly there were moments I thought one of the main characters might shed some themselves. Basically, I've yet to see an A-list actor put forth as much affection, despair and romanticism as these two leading androids.

Youtube had the 3-part film hosted for a minute, but looks like that shit is gone. It'll surface somewhere, take a gander....

Top 3 Household Aromas

#1 - Espresso Percolating
This is the potion that gets my ass outta bed each morning. My aunt Raffaela used to babysit me when I was a little boy and my fondest memories of that were always Chips Ahoy cookies and the espresso's she used to make for my uncle Joe. That scent stuck to her finished basement walls. I'm trying to do the same in my townhouse. Plus, something about having an espresso with friends and family makes conversation 100 times better.

#2 - Baked Veal Cutlets and Slow Fried Peppers and Onions
You got to tenderize those veals first (Hi Ana). Scramble up a few eggs, dip those veals, then bread with grated parmigiano, breadcrumbs, salt, pepper and some fresh parsley....booooooom! Bake at 350 degrees and you're good. Next thing you know you're like Pepe Le Pew lost in a daze of aroma. Damn, don't forget the slow fried peppers, mushrooms, chopped onion and a chunk of garlic. Use good olive oil you mangiacake. And some Calabrese bread for a sandwich. This aroma is overwhelming because it will usually linger through the house by the time you get to bed, but I get my rest on early, usually by about 10.

#3 - Special Occassions Only - The Scent that comes from Puffin on that La.

I am Buying a Pair! Only 575 Euros!

From Hypebeast:
Once again, eyewear label Mykita looks towards the design efforts of cutting-edge Frenchman Romain Kremer for an interesting set of shades. The sunglasses, inspired by Yuri Gagarin, the first man human in outer space, following the ideology that they are "made to protect the 3rd eye and the brain, reinforcing the idea of a new type of man, with a sci-fi warrior touch." Two solid colorways are offered, with the black version having already been spotted on Lady Gaga. A release is scheduled for this Fall/Winter season with retail set at 575 Euros.

I wanna cop the red pair.

There's A Wizard in my Pocket

And I want to choke him. There's no other way to explain it really. There's a Wizard in my pocket and he likes to turn my headphones into a labyrinth. It takes me a maximum of 3 minutes to get this shit figured out. The winter wind lashes my face, my coffee starts to get cool and my cigarette sticks to my lip. All while I untangle these vexing, skimpy headphone wires. While I sleep he has visions in his crystal ball of how to fuck up my morning. This is why the first half hour of my work day is usually screwface.

I'm Sad About This

No one sounds better than Bald Head Slick on a Premier track. No one. His intellect, flow and overall wisdom is what I like about him. And you can bet your girl gets joyous when she hears his voice. Get well soon Guru, I'm tired of all this bogus Hip Hop.
