Think outside the box

One of the 12 most overused business words (via Mashable)

I want to revise this and say, “You can’t box lightning.” I said that once as a cocky teenager and I still sort of believe it. It implies more limitlessness than being in an actual box to think yourself out of.

Mad that I lost my glasses in the rain last week and had to buy new ones.

Vegetarian Tapas with Marjorie Becker of Chiptography.com

I remember seeing Marjorie for the first time at a concert. She takes photos of bands, sometimes dogs (now food!) —and miraculously has all of the photos up for people to tag themselves on Facebook within less than 24 hours. She’d ask me at concerts I booked if she could set up lights and put in gels. It was great to have a visual history of everything I’ve worked on. We had a long overdue date to photograph food and we finally did it this summer in a nice Upper West Side apartment with tons of light.

The challenge: Marjorie is vegetarian. When you’re a hardheaded meat eater, it’s very easy to give a vegetarian a bunch of sides and call it a night. Luckily, I’ve been practicing. I also found inspiration from local Brooklyn places like Glasserie and Xixa, which I praise for having “omnivore” menus. 

This week, I present to you a lovely day of tapas:

  • DIY labneh
  • Manchego cheese board
  • Fried potato boats
  • Deconstructed hummus
  • Pan con tomate
  • Carrot elote
  • Nukazuke pickles
  • Poached and broiled broccoli with white bbq sauce

Stay tuned every day at 11am EST for a breakdown of each dish !

This week is gonna be real pretty on the randwiches tumblr!

Night Bridge

Can I real talk for a minute. 

We walk past these missing persons signs on the train every day. Just this summer, on separate occurrences, two seemingly successful men have vanished and been found dead with no foul play. I like this video because it made something so serious into something darkly playful and curious. What does happen to their belongings and what do these people leave behind? Could we have helped, would we have been friends?

Can we talk about it if you’re feeling bad and don’t know where to go? I’m just saying in a backwards way that I don’t want to lose any of you this way.
