tonight i made a pretty successful attempt at hiyashi chuka (japanese style, cold chinese noodles). i think i did ok, but next time i'll have to add a bit more vinegar to the sauce (kakejiru). a friend brought sake and another couple brought daifuku for dessert. a very japanese evening indeed!
some cool canadian chicks:
- esthero's follow up album is finally released! a departure from the moody first album, with stronger social commentaries and colabos with sean lennon and andre 3000.
- i've been keeping my eye on jillian tamaki since i saw her illos in the applied arts illustration & photography annual last year. her illos always have so much detail and great colour schemes. you can see her illos in the arts & entertainment section of cbc.ca (i've been visiting almost daily to see if there are any new jillian illos) and magazines like bust and the new yorker. wow!
- ... and you can't get any cooler or cuter than metric, well unless you are feist.
