Faking Bad Update

Rainbow Ice Cube, Melting
This is a project I started months ago but then put aside until today. The photo does it no justice but you can see from the refracted sunlight in the foreground that the cube is a perfect six-layer rainbow cast. The red pool is freshly poured and will require several hours to cure. I'll try to take some better photos then.

Is this a subtle meataphor about the shootings?

A melting rainbow ice cube?

Too soon?

I would go with the "I had already scheduled this."

Just like that black Democrat Congressman who tweet "You reap what you will sow."

Nothing to see here. Just move along.

What's meta for, anyways?

Sixty Grit said...

Can I take that to the range with me?

Trooper York said...

A meat-a-phor is a red meat metaphor. Something you can sink your teeth into.

28 min video. Japanology hosted by Peter Barakan

Discusses history of plastic food in Japan.

Notes while watching:

They help the customer visualize the dishes.

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

Stop it, you’re killing me.

Those ones enter the world of art.

I see that locution a lot. “those ones” Doesn’t it sound odd? Yes? That’s because you’re American.

When they showed the bread but said it is trade secret I thought that it looks like egg white dispersed in water from poaching an egg. I bet they extrude plastic into water. This is also how tempura looks when Japanese chefs drizzle extra batter onto the coated food piece after it’s already in shallow oil to build out little arms like an insect made of toasty light tempura batter. The chef stands there and drizzles batter directly into the oil attached to the frying piece. He has seconds. In both cases a similar pattern develops. I concluded: water.

Then, next scene in the video, lettuce leaves formed in water. But not how you think, by doing it a million times and developing an extraordinary technique. That’s @ 16:30

Yep. 5 years. Yep, he says no lesson, just doing it over and over.

Takizo Iwasaki no book on Amazon with that name what a bummer!
