I missed most of the red carpet last night but I did manage to see Lupita's dress! So pretty! Congrats on her award

Harold Ramis


He often played creeps, but he rarely played them creepily. His metier was human loneliness — the terrible uncinematic kind that has very little to do with high-noon heroism and everything to do with everyday empathy — and the necessary curse of human self-knowledge. He held up a mirror to those who could barely stand to look at themselves and invited us not only to take a peek but to see someone we recognized. He played frauds who knew they were frauds, schemers who knew they were schemers, closeted men who could only groan with frustrated love, heavy breathers dignified by impeccable manners, and angels who could withstand the worst that life could hand out because they seemed to know the worst was just the beginning. And what united all his roles was the stoic calm he brought to them, the stately concentration that assured us that no matter whom Philip Seymour Hoffman played, Philip Seymour Hoffman himself was protected.

LET ME TELL YOU A THING ABOUT SHIRLEY TEMPLE
Not only did this ABSURDLY ADORABLE little superstar pretty much singlehandedly save Fox and the movie industry during the Great Depression, she also
was one of the first (possibly the first) white actress to hold hands with a black man on screen as half of the first interracial dance couple on screen.
was largely responsible for making breast cancer okay to talk about after she had a press conference about her own mastectomy
became president of the Multiple Sclerosis Society and co-founded the International Federation of Multiple Sclerosis Societies, because her brother had MS
was the first female Chief of Protocol in US Government history
served as a US ambassador during the fall of Communism and was pretty much an all around international BADASS
And according to her husband, she was always true to herself. “Over 38 years I have participated in her life 24 hours a day through thick and thin, traumatic situations, exultant situations, and I feel she has only one personality. She would be catastrophic for the psychiatric profession. You can wake her up in the middle of the night and she has the same personality everybody knows. What everybody has seen for 60 years is the bedrock.” (x)
Shirley Temple is hands down the most legendary child star of all time and she grew up to be a total BAMF. Rest in peace, Curly Top.

They found you with a needle in your arm, pinprick to oblivion. God, I hope it was fun when you moved on. And screen images drip through my head, rewinding in molasses motion. We never met, but I knew you (hundreds of you): you were a creep; you were a pervert; you were an author; you were a…

I noticed that you cook and feature a lot of Korean cuisine on your blog. You may have been asked this question before, but is there a particular reason why? I’m Korean and I love seeing all of the Korean dishes you cook! I’ll admit that I feel a bit ashamed that I haven’t made a concerted effort to learn how to properly cook Korean dishes myself : /
1. Availability:
I think the main reason is because all the ingredients are accessible to me. Korean dishes rely heavily on vegetables and seafood for its flavor and we have that in abundance and so it’s not difficult to procure them. The fermented sauces and paste were a challenge at first but that is only because I live in a very “local-influenced” city - Chinese and Indonesian sauces rule the shelves here.
2. Flavors:
If you look at Korean dishes ranging from the basic street-food tteokbokki to the more elaborate buldak, they have the same base sauce ingredients: gochujang, gochugaru, soy sauce, garlic - it’s the way they play with ratio that makes up the final flavor of the dish. You’ll find that the dishes taste similar but not quite the same, and I find that to be nothing short of genius.
3. Meat vs. Seafood:
I’m not big on eating meat, I much prefer seafood so that ties in very nicely with Korean dishes. There’s also the issue of the Kosher or Halal-ness of a dish (all seafood, except maybe sea-snakes if I’m not mistaken, are Halal) which is a sort of dietary restrictions on Muslims like myself. We can’t consume alcohol so that rules out a lot of Japanese dishes, and we can’t consume meat that was not butchered in the Halal way so eating meat abroad is a wary subject. With Korean dishes I find it’s easier to distinguish the food that we can and cannot consume.
I won’t go on to say about the health values since that’s pretty much obvious and it’s not really an argumentative point since any cuisine can be made healthy should you wish to make the changes. I hope this answers your question!
