Dianxi Xiaoge

May 19, 2020Posted In A/V CLub

I discovered Dianxi’s videos on YouTube while looking around for videos on cooking. Dianxi’s videos are amazing, sublime, and deeply soothing. In each video, Dianxi prepares a different dish, using local vegetation that she prepares and then serves it to her family. After enjoying these highly professional videos, I wasn’t a bit surprised to learn that Dianxi has over 4 million subscribers on YouTube and (as one article noted) over 11 million fans worldwide. – Sometimes I have these videos on in the background just to enjoy their music and serene cooking sounds. These videos really are wonderful. For artist-types, I think these are great exemplars of someone taking pride and pleasure in performing her craft well for its own enjoyment and the enjoyment of others. I have no doubt Dianxi would’ve made a great cartoonist.

David Lynch is back!

May 12, 2020Posted In A/V CLub

After many years on hiatus, David Lynch has started doing his strange, daily weather reports from his home office. Although I’m a bit late to the game (2000s and not the 1990s) I’ve become a great fan of David Lynch and what he stands for. Lynch is a dyed-in-the-wool believer in the power of art, the art life (as he calls it), coffee, and meditation. Since discovering Lynch and his work a few years ago, I have a renewed appreciation for all these interests, and try to sprinkle a little Lynchian goodness into my daily life as best I can. – Below you will find some video clips of his early weather reports, a current weather report, a David Lynch coffee commercial, and a video on David’s transcendental meditation work, which he loves just as much as he loves coffee. Lynch credits this form of meditation as shaping the success of life life and his career. He loves it so much he even started a foundation to help spread the word. To that point, he also created his own brand of coffee as well! – Enjoy!

Louis Lunch

February 9, 2020Posted In Blog

This morning I just happened to turn on the radio at the right time to hear a great expose’ about Louis Lunch in New Haven, a national treasure, that was a good, healthy walk from my old apartment (where I was drawing comics) in New Haven. If you listen to the story below (click on the link) you’ll learn that Louis Lunch is a fourth-generation restaurant that has been making its unique burgers in its vertical, gas-powered ovens since WW I. Louis also has a strict rule that no ketchup is to be added to burgers. In fact, they have a ton of rules… and very little seating…. And, it’s great. If you have time listen to the entire story below. It’s a great, fun listen.

Of note, a company offered the Louis Family $5 million dollars a few years back for the shop: He turned them down. More recently, another company offered Grandson Louis, the current owner, $51 million dollars for the shop.
He turned them down.

Why?
Because something’s just don’t have a price.
