I recently spent a day working on a playful new approach to photographing food, inspired by the food photography of artist Florent Tanet and photographs I had seen in contemporary food journal, The Gourmand.
I ended up with two shots I really loved from this shoot. See more, here.
Today is International Coffee Day!
It’s National Coffee Day… somebody get Dave Grohl a fresh pot! ☕☕☕
Welcome back, SNL on its 40th anniversary season as Guardians of the Galaxy’s Star Lord himself - Chris Pratt with Ariana Grande!
And I’m hooked on feeling, people!
Disclaimer: this gif/jpeg is NOT mine! Credit to the folks I like/reblogged it, thank you!
Here’s the wild recap timeline on my SNL live blogging last night:
11:29 - The cold opening on The State of the Union topic on the NFL in crisis - wow, football on politics with Chris as Roger Goodill. The Great Pharoah’s Shannon Sharpe gibberish as Porky Pig on steroids (and his bow tie has gone bigger).
11:36 - Enter Chris Pratt: hunkier, hotter, leaner with his recommended diet plan called ‘Hey, fat ass. Get into shape so you can be in my movie’ diet.
Plus a song about him from his yo-yo diet to his red, hot sex with Anna Faris.
11:40 - Cialis Turt - Turn up the Turt! And there’s a lot of ecstasy in this.
11:45 - Kylie steals the scene as the birthday boy who wishes his toys were alive, and HELLO…
OH, MY SWEET TARTS! Er…they’re so hot but they’re air headed as I thought…
Plus, Ariana’s She-Ra and she’s also one air headed.
Oh fuck, my childhood cartoon memories ruined/violated my life!
11:53 - Somewhere at the Animal Hospital, again. Those threesomes are working terribly and abandoned those poor pets…
THIS IS THE WORST HOSPITAL I’VE BEEN IN!
11:56 - After the megahit success of Guardians of the Galaxy, there’s a whole variety of the WTF Marvel Universe franchise. It’s gone too far from over as we hooked our bad bad feeling.
What would Stan Lee reaction to watch this?
12:01 - Ariana Grande performs Break Free.
Weekend Update with CoJo and new anchor Michael Che (after Cecily resigns, but hey…she’s back as the lovable Girl You Wish You Hadn’t Started a Party on Obamanation and Ebola).
Leslie Jones is back as she savvily topics on being single. I’m following you, girl!
And also, welcome to the new world Pete Davidson!
12:28 - Lil’ Baby Aidy and Chris meet cute but into rap songs of Niki Minaj’s Anaconda - blew me away. LMAOL!
12:33 - The Roommates are back with the 80s/90s sitcom results as Chris was involved by little kids with bad influence.
12:41 - NFL on CBS topics’ players introduction and their terrible sins like involuntary prostitution, DUI, illegal drugs and weapons, domestic abuse, bestiality, terrorism, pornography, Somalian piracy, cat-fighting, murder, et al. And I didn’t know that CoJo and Mike are two of players in this hilarious sketch!
12:48 - Ariana performs Love Me Harder.
12:55 - I wanna play Puzzle Wizards cuz of Chris’ making out with Vanessa (and his hot bare abs)!
Ohhhhh, it’s too many levels cuz of Chris’ abs!
TAKE CHRIS’ SHIRT THE WHOLE OFF, VANESSA!
My personal opinion: I’m so glad SNL returns, but I felt saddened of Brooks, Noël, John and my dear Nasim are not coming back (rumored that Kenan is leaving), Mike returns to the writing territory and the passing of the legendary SNL announcer, Don Pardo.
So, I’m feeling much better and time to laugh again with three new members: Michael Che, Pete Davidson and…SNL vet Darrell Hammond as the new announcer: and pretty fits on Pardo’s shoes.
The sketch: Not an accident, eh. I praised for the fake Marvel trailers and the clueless cartoon characters’ skit, but the rests are moderately OK (my awkward is the Animal Hospital sketch).
Thank you, SNL (my live blogging life is complete) and welcome back!
Again, HAPPY 40TH ANNIVERSARY, SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE!
(Merry Go Round Broke Theme)
