Who I Follow

I never paid attention to Chrissy or Mrs John Legend until I saw her on The Chew. And she’s hilarious, and seems really personable. She’s my new girl crush and I secretly hope she really is as down-to-earth as she appears. Thus, enjoyed this article about her food obsessions.

Do you agree? Just dot make things complicated. I’m all for the point about “be comfortable” - do what feels right and in whichever manner you prefer. If you wan to get dolled up or dressed down, just be authentic. It’s that simple. — N

Arashiyama’s Bamboo Forest

In the Arashiyama (嵐山) district of Kyoto, Japan, is the jaw-dropping Sagano Bamboo Grove. The forest was the setting of Japanese novelist and poet Lady Murasaki Shikibu’s acclaimed novel, "The Tale of Genji." There is a walking path that cuts through the bamboo grove and makes for a photogenic trek as light filters through the stalks. The bamboo in the grove is still used to manufacture cups, boxes, baskets and mats in the area.

To view more photos and videos of the bamboo forest, be sure to visit the 竹林の小径 (Kitasaga Bamboo Grove) location page.

The way I see it is that Heisenberg is gone. He keeps trying to kind of evoke the ghost of Heisenberg, the thrill of feeling powerful, and it’s not there. It’s gone. It died when Hank died…It died when he saw baby Holly. And then in the end…what’s happening is he’s becoming something new. It’s not Walter White; it’s not Heisenberg. It’s something new.

The sound of Wikipedia being updated is surprisingly relaxing.

Listen to Wikipedia, inspired by Listen to Bitcoin and created by Mahmoud Hashemi and Stephen LaPorte, transforms the worldwide editing process into a relaxed global orchestra. A celesta plays whenever an addition is made. A clavichord sounds whenever something is deleted. The higher the pitch, the smaller the edit.
