This comic shows estimated average frequency. I wanted to include the pitch drop experiment, but it turns out the gif format has some issues with decade-long loops.

That's taught me that nearly every time someone edits wikipedia, someone dies. I'm going to be much more careful with my wikipedia edits!

Women’s Equality Day: A Look Through Time

1 Share

Women have been making history for centuries. Women’s Equality Day commemorates the overturning of the Nineteenth Amendment, granting women the right to vote, and moving toward equality with men. In honor of this day, I’ve compiled fascinating milestones in women’s history. I hope you enjoy this walk through time as much as we do!

‘American Hustle’ Trailer: David O. Russell Visits the 1970s

1 Comment

American Hustle

As we’ve seen in earlier stills, stills, David O. Russell‘s American Hustle features some very good actors with some very bad haircuts. Now we finally have our first look at all of them in action with the first trailer.

Starring The Fighter‘s Christian Bale and Amy Adams with The Silver Linings Playbook‘s Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, the film follows the Abscam FBI sting of the 1970s, which ensnared caught everyone from mobsters to politicians. Watch the trailer after the jump.

The first trailer premiered on Good Morning America (via Bleeding Cool).

American Hustle has been on our radar for months, since the combination of Russell, that premise, and that cast is just too intriguing to ignore. The zesty first trailer really delivers on that promise. Sony obviously has sky-high hopes as well — studios don’t spend what must’ve been a small fortune for a Led Zeppelin song to promote a movie they expect to be a dud.

As Russ described it, the Abscam sting was “basically an FBI-backed version of the classic ‘Nigerian prince’ email scam where a supposed member of royalty seeks help getting his/her money out of the home country.” It ultimately led to the conviction of five US congressmen and a US senator, among others.

Bale plays Irving Rosenfeld, a New York con man forced to aid in the operation by an “unhinged” FBI agent (Cooper). Adams plays Irving’s girlfriend and accomplice, and Lawrence his wife. Renner, the only one of the five leads working with Russell for the first time, portrays a New Jersey mayor.Louis C.K.,Alessandro Nivola,Elisabeth Rohm,Dawn Olivieri,Jack Huston,Michael Pena, andRobert De Niro round out the cast.

American Hustle opens in limited release on December 13 before going wide on December 25.

Farmers Market Update: Portland

1 Comment

Last week I had the good fortune of heading to Portland for a few days. I made a stop at Kiva Tea Bar and Spa to talk about Foodist and sign a few books. If you’re in the Portland area, you can find books there and at Compote (an awesome breakfast spot).

Naturally while I was in town I had to stop at the farmers market, and I must say I was blown away. Multiple people recommended I visit the market at Portland Statue University, which is the biggest market in the city.

The market rested under a canopy of towering trees, which gave the entire market a lovely green glow and fresh smell. The abundance of seasonal produce, pastured meats and tasty treats was unbelievable, and I have to admit I was a little jealous.

Despite the slightly gloomy weather, spring was in full effect at the market. Such beautiful greens, favas, and foraged goods.

Stacks of kale, mustard, collards, chards and lettuces were on tables as far as I could see. There didn’t seem to be much variance in the quality of farms, as all the stands were equally impressive.

I was really bummed I couldn’t buy anything to take home for dinner, since I had to catch a plane back to SF early the next morning.

Greens

The egg selections at the market were particularly impressive. There were quail eggs, turkey eggs, duck eggs, and of course immaculately cared for chicken eggs. I couldn’t help but think of the infamous restaurant scene from Portlandia.

The local butcher scene in Portland was even more impressive than we have here in SF, which is saying a lot. I sampled a few of the cured meats and pates, and they were unbelievably delicious.

With the exception of a few strawberries there still wasn’t much fruit yet at this time of year, but I imagine that will change soon. The vibrant colors of all the vegetables more than made up for it, however, and it didn’t feel like anything was missing.

Even more impressive were the incredible colors of the wild flowers that were on sale at the market. Peonies and dozens of other seasonal flowers were available in huge bouquets for as little as $10 a bunch. It was spectacular to behold.

My only regret was that I wasn’t able to spend more time in the city to take advantage of all the amazing food, but I now plan to make Portland a regular stop in my travels.

What did you find at the market this week?
