Man of Aran (or How to Work Hard) 1934 Irish film documentary (ethnofiction)
re-creation of culture on the edges of modern society, even though much of the primitive life depicted had been left behind by the 1930s.

It is impressive, however, for its drama, for its spectacular cinematography of landscape and seascape, and for its concise editing.

An ‘eclogue’ - a pastoral and marine poem.

Asia Sunrise #Dubby_Psy'ed On U #SoundCloud
When Morning
Dawns, readiness,
Willingness and
Eagerness rise
To their Himalayan

At break of dawn
Our soul teaches us
The lesson of

In Sunrise- Silence,
Our waking mind
Becomes the lover
Of Peace.

The Morning-Confidence
Energises even
A hopeless heart.

Morning is the
Inspiration – Spring
And aspiration – summer.

Morning Loves
To Behold the
Ever – transcending

In the morning
Our soul oversees
With greater care.

At dawn we are closely in touch
With God’s Heart-

At morning sunrise
A self-giving heart
Radiates with the
Beauty of the
Entire creation.

Lobster "A woman should never be seen eating or drinking, unless it be lobster salad and Champagne, the only true feminine and becoming viands"
Lord Byron

Lobster like snails and spiders, have blue blood due to the presence of hemocyanin which contains copper.
In contrast, vertebrates and many other animals have red blood from iron-rich hemoglobin.

Lobsters possess a green hepatopancreas, called the tomalley by chefs, which functions as the animal's liver and pancreas.

Lobsters live up to an estimated 70 years, although determining age is difficult.

Lobster longevity is limited by their size.
Moulting requires metabolic energy and the larger the lobster, the more energy is needed; 10 to 15% of lobsters die of exhaustion during moulting, while in older lobsters, moulting ceases and the exoskeleton degrades or collapses entirely leading to death.

According to Guinness World Records, the largest lobster ever caught was in Nova Scotia, Canada, weighing 20.15 kilograms (44.4 lb).

Lobster was considered a mark of poverty or as a food for indentured servants or lower members of society in Maine, Massachusetts, and the Canadian Maritimes, and servants specified in employment agreements that they would not eat lobster more than twice per week.

Lobster was also commonly served in prisons, much to the displeasure of inmates.
American lobster was initially deemed worthy only of being used as fertilizer or fish bait, and until well into the 20th century, it was not viewed as more than a low-priced canned staple food.

The Spice Melange , Lady Jessica notes that her first taste of spice "tasted like cinnamon." Dr. Yueh adds that the flavour is "never twice the same ..
It's like life - it presents a different face each time you take it.

Some hold that the spice produces a learned-flavour reaction.

The body, learning a thing is good for it, interprets the flavour as pleasurable -; slightly euphoric.

And, like life, never to be truly synthesized.

Commonly referred to simply as 'the spice', was a naturally produced awareness spectrum narcotic that formed a fundamental block of commerce and technological development in the known universe for millennia.

It also played an important role in travel and cultural development.

Since its discovery, several thousand years prior to the ascent of House Atreides, it was produced exclusively on the planet Arrakis.
This was because the conditions on Arrakis by which melange was created were unique to that planet.

However, some 1500 years after the death of the God-Emperor Leto II, the Bene Tleilax had managed to successfully replicate it.

1993 mysterious records of mind bending electronic echoes, in length and structures, started to emerge from Berlin.

1993 mysterious records of mind bending electronic echoes, in length and structures, started to emerge from Berlin.

Plain sleeved records with enigmatic graphics pressed in Detroit, but made in Germany by two guys from Berlin who weren’t so keen about showcasing their physique, but rather focused on the music.

Basic channel and Moritz von Oswald took techno music to a degree in a variety of shapes that encompassed dub, ambient, downtempo, techno and basically crafted minimal techno de facto.

Mr. von Oswald aimed towards face eating repetition and stretching the groove into a place that opened a rich and vast new territory in music for the dance floor and sound textures that were and still are unique.

It’s like Lee Perry would stretch his legs in warm bath with nothing but sequencers and TB 303 for company.
Using the mixing board as a tool like his Jamaican nemesis, von Oswald swiftly emerged as the quintessential post-modern artist : collaboration were spawned with Juan Atkins, Carl Craig, Nills Petter Molvaer and so on.
The holy grail of techno music. Pure class, heavenly remixes and blissful dubby basslines.

Dedicated to Mr Oswald and Mark Ernestus as well.

Originally the Yorkshire pudding was served as a first course with thick gravy to dull the appetite with the low-cost ingredients so that the diners would not eat so much of the more expensive meat in the next course

Originally shared by Jon “the chef” Hole

The Ultimate Yorkshire Pudding “Them 'at eats t'most pudding gets t'most meat”

2 heaped serving spoons of flour
2 eggs at room temperature
Milk to a thin batter
2 tbsp beef dripping
Whisk like mad to get plenty of air into batter leave to rest in fridge to get nice and Cold
Secret Ingredient
as my Grandmother showed me many moons ago put a handful of
Snow to get very cold before putting into very hot smoking baking tin with the beef dripping.
Place in oven
Do not open for 30 mins or so or else flat puddings

Unfortunately No snow today :)

The pudding would have originally been cooked beneath the meat (usually beef) roasting on a spit above a fire.

This position would have meant that the fats and juices from the meat could drip onto the batter pudding, flavouring and adding colour. (The initial name for cooking a batter in this way was “Dripping Pudding”.)

This also meant that these drippings, essential in the diet, particularly for working men, were utilised rather than lost to the fire.

Sources of these essential fats, particularly in the North of England, were more difficult to obtain at that time, especially with the cost of meat, so every drop that could be used, was.
