Brilliant.
 
Bohemian Gravity: This is just brilliant (H/t to +Avinash Jaisinghani for bringing this to my notice!)... here is the background from iO9 : Question: What do you get when you mix a cappella, sock puppets, string theory and Queen? Answer: The geekiest (and astonishingly good, musically speaking) cover of "Bohemian Rhapsody" EVAR. Easily the greatest physics-themed cover of the classic we've ever heard. Seriously. The thing's a masterpiece.


To be fair, "Bohemian Gravity" may well be the only physics-themed version of "Bohemian Rhapsody" ever made, but that doesn't change the fact that it is very, very well done. The creation of McGill University Masters candidate Timothy Blaise (who posted this link to his recently submitted thesis, along with the video), the track does way more than touch on some of the more confounding elements of string theory; from a compositional standpoint, it also manages to be an outstanding cover of "Bohemian Rhapsody," full stop. Also, there's an Einstein sock puppet.

"Scientists seem often surprised at discovering that there are clearly no closed systems out there, and that we, like much else in the universe, have fuzzy boundaries with the environment we live in. From "mind versus body" to "soul versus matter" , the hard boundaries are dissolving or will dissolve to some or greater extent with the march of science."
Your DNA and identity are not as entwined as once thought. In fact most people have multiple genomes floating around, from mutations and remnants of pregnancies or twins.

I called this number and ordered my 11-year-old son a pizza. I realized as I was talking to the guy, as he was about to take my credit card number, that there was a closer Pizza Hut to my house. I asked him if I were calling the right number. He said that it didn't matter as he was answering from a call center and he would route the order to the Pizza Hut in Venice. He said it would take long so I didn't call to check right away. An hour later, I called this number and they denied that the order had been made and had no record of it. I called the Venice store too just to see if they had been forwarded the order. They had no record of it either, Neither store was apologetic or offered to do anything. I asked to speak to a manager and was told I could complain on their website. They took no responsibility. My son missed his dinner. I won't be ordering from Pizza Hut again.

Had a business meeting at The Curious Palate today. Had passed it numerous times and never thought of going in. Glad I did. I had the Curious salad, which had lima beans, artichoke hearts, fresh greens, and roasted red peppers. In addition, I ordered shrimp on my salad. All was fresh and delicious in that California farmer's market way. They also have wifi. Will return.

I was going to see Argo at the Landmark Theatre the other day and met my friend at Westside Tavern. It was very crowded and we had to hover over people who were leaving a high table at the bar in order to get it. We sat down and I ordered a cucumber martini, which was refreshing and delicious. Then we were deciding between two bottles of red and the waiter was very nice and gave us a tasting and the tempranillo won (the one he had suggested initially). We shared the chicken cobb chop salad and the broccolini flatbread with fontina, toasted fennel, capers and roasted tomato. The salad was decent but not memorable, but the flatbread was good. The atmosphere was festive, and the proximity to the movie theatre very convenient.

Am I in New York? Rows of brightly-colored macarons, deep yellow, orange, reds, greet me as I walk in from the heart of Downtown LA. High ceilings, smartly-dressed waitstaff, and the excited buzz of mover shaker lunches. Bottega Louie is a must for the DTLA set. The pizzas and small plates are fabulous. Try the mussels, the grilled octopus, the brussel sprouts with pistachios, the burrata and roasted vine tomatoes. Wonderful ingredients, attentive waitstaff, I want to become a regular.

I passed by this place a block from the beach many times before considering trying it. It definitely has a "hole-in-the-wall" aspect. One day I was driving and hungry and there was a designated parking spot right in front so I decided to try it. I am very glad I did. Not expecting much, I ordered a bowl of Mi Quang (turmeric noodle bowl pronounced mee wa-Ahn) and it immediately brought me back to my days in Southeast Asia. The spice paste was made of fresh ingredients including lemongrass, turmeric, chili and lime, and the bowl was laden with generous amounts of shrimp, pork, bacon, shredded vegetables and fresh herbs. It was flavorful and exquisite. Though I was sitting outside looking out over a tiny parking lot that connects China Beach and a liquor store, the vibrant flavors transported me far away. I am now putting China Beach in the hidden gem category.

This is what I order. Austin Blues sausage with carmelized onions and spicy peppers. A stout glass of Delirium Tremens. Fries with truffle oil (you really don't need the other dips if you get the truffle oil, but if you must get the chipotle mayonnaise). The fries are the best ever and totally worth breaking a diet for. You sit in a German beerhall-style room at a long communal table covered with brown paper. There are great tubs of spicy mustard and water infused with cucumber. You start to wonder if indeed it is true that Europeans know how to live better than Americans.
