Its appearance gives no clue to what its flavor might be, and yet it...– Robert Müsli, The Cereal Without Qualities
theparisreview: Smithsonian: The Long History of the Espresso Machine For many coffee drinkers, espresso is coffee. It is the purest distillation of the coffee bean, the literal essence of a bean. In another sense, it is also the first instant coffee. Before espresso, it could take up to five minutes –five minutes!– for a cup of coffee to brew. But what exactly is espresso and how did it...
Something I forgot to mention about the dubstep festival I worked last weekend: there was a tent where you could go get spit on to have your aura cleansed. Spit on by like, two or three women, I think? It was supposed to be therapeutic, I guess. I overheard one girl talking about it and she said “it was like her aura was touching my skin” and I almost choked on my water to say...

Is everyone done spending $5 on pointlessness to make jokes about spending $5 on pointlessness?
Joke’s on american apparel for actually paying money to advertise on tumblr when they’ve basically been getting free advertising on here for what, three years now?
theparisreview: Gret book cover design!! Nicolas pshleys cheers: history of Beer in Cnada, desined by some guy. Is the paris review just wasted all the time now?
The Great Following Back of 2012 begins now.
And yet, still: mosquitos. Can’t there be a forest fire equivalent for just mosquitos?
Bill Nye is on his own guest list for his own event like people wouldn’t know who he is. Gooby pls.
I know I made a joke last night about the paris review drunk-blogging but I’m pretty sure they have been *actually* drunk-blogging all day today and, if they really do have a drinking problem, well then I’m sorry for making a joke about it.
theparisreview: HBO has posted Aaron Sorkins pilt episode newsroom on yout\ube. What do we think!L: Sportn ight/the West Wing dove child or Studio 60 on the Sunset Strips unfortnate twin? maybe a little of both?! Once again, the paris review is staying up late, drunk-blogging.

Some field notes.
The guy I’m rooming and working with for this festival wubfest is a Seinfeld trivia master. I have seen more ass cheeks in the past 48 hours than I care to innumerate. Not to slut shame anyone or anybody but jesus christ. I texted Emily: “I keep forgetting these people are like, actually people.” There were hula-hoop workshops today, early in the day before the music. ...
If you ever want to see white people reappropriate every culture that has ever existed in one or two outfits, go to a dubstep festival.
me: oh man
me: it's starting to get wacky
me: half these kids look like they dressed up for a Fable 2 cosplay
DeepOmega: tell them you have a dubstep fashion blog
me: dropthefashion dot tumblr dot com
DeepOmega: THERE YOU GO
Worried about people possibly on bathsalts.
There’s wifi in the dub tent.
macartney replied to your photo: This is all I need to bring with me to work four,… What do you plan to do with yourself the other two days? Bathsalts, I guess.
It’s so fucking hot I think I’m going to do a bunch of codeine and start a chopped and screwed movement in visual arts.
Me, a month ago: “Yeah sure, no problem, I’ll totally go work an electronic music festival in the mountains.” Me, the day before the electronic music festival: “Fuck.”
I don’t see the point in hate-following/hate-retweeting/hate-reblogging/hate-favoriting/hate-whatevering. Seems exhausting. It’s like a Don Quixote without a Cervantes. It’s a “joke’s on you” kind of thing but worse some how because both the thing (whatever it is) and the reaction are only that: a thing and a reaction. They don’t even cross lines, just run...
Fictional INFPs: Anne (Anne of Green Gables) Calvin (Calvin and Hobbes) Deanna Troi (Star Trek - The Next Generation) Wesley Crusher (Star Trek - The Next Generation) Doctor Julian Bashir (Star Trek: Deep Space 9) Bastian (The Neverending Story) Huh. Never really thought about how these “personality type” tests are designed to make nerds feel better (or worse!) about themselves.
When I’m too lazy to get the furminator, I just pull all the loose fur Millie carries around with her like so much sound and fury. She actually loves this for some reason? I’m thinking about getting her shaved for summer because the hair situation is getting out of hand. Cats are gross.
