Tuesday Active

New buzzword: Active
Active transportation (e.g. bicycle) – versus passive transportation (e.g. car)
Active TV or the convergence of TV + gaming (((watch this very interesting video of a talk by Kevin Slavin))) – versus passive TV

Rode the Mariachi Bullitt to Vinaigrette for lunch with V on Friday. They have a nice patio and nothing feels as civilized to me as a two hour lunch and good conversation. I tried a Spanish rosé wine, something I only drink once ever other year, and it went great with the food and the warm Summer weather.

Music + Architecture… I remember reading that book and enjoying that sentence!

the invisible art « neo bohemia
in the evening the art of building gave way to that of music, which is architecture, too, though invisible.
Memoirs of Hadrian – Marguerite Yourcenar

I also enjoyed this post about cooked people – the raw, the cooked and the half-baked

My current reading? I am halfway through The Pillars of the Earth, which I am reading in the Kindle format (only $6.39) on the iPhone. Jon Gagan recommended the book to me and I am enjoying the story, which takes place in England in 1135. I love the eatable plates, made of bread.

    Enjoyed the ice cube all the way to the final solid twist.

    The ice cube caught me off-guard…

    I thought it was a “something” moving in water when it was actually something moving into water.

    @yumi, I think “solid” is a key here ;-)

    Turning water into ice, nice. Now can you turn water into wine? ;-)

    looks to me like some one made the water mad and it turn into the hulk

    Wonderful idea for a video! If you enjoy The Pillars of the Earth you might also like the sequel, World Without End.
