Cinnamon & Oat Pancakes
These are absolutely lovely little breakfast pancakes - you don’t taste the oats very much, but they’re much more filling than regular pancakes. They were a compromise this weekend, as I fancied pancakes and my boyfriend wanted porridge, et voila, a porridge pancake. Cinnamon & oat sounds better. This is my adapted version of Martha Stewart’s recipe. If you don’t have baking cups, get some, they’re brilliant! 
Put 1 cup of plain flour, 1/2 a cup of rolled oats, 1/8 cup demerara sugar, 1/2 tablespoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt & 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon into a food processor, and process until the oats are broken up. Whisk 1 and 1/2 cups of milk with 1 egg and 1/8 cup vegetable oil, then stir in the flour-oat mixture and another 1/2 cup of rolled oats. If the mixture looks too thick, add more milk. Drop heaped tablespoons onto a hot slightly oiled pan, and cook for a couple of minutes on each side. You’ll know when to flip them, as the top looks set instead of runny. Add a little more oil to the pan if you need it. These keep warm nicely in between two plates in the oven while you get on with making the rest. Serve with golden syrup, blueberries and bananas - perfect for a lazy weekend breakfast.

The Outsider and Others | H.P. Lovecraft | 1939
First Edition. The first publication from Arkham House and first collection of Lovecraft’s stories, published posthumously, which would go on to not only to have an enormous influence on horror fiction, but on film and music as well. Very Good plus in an about Very Good dust jacket. Light bumps to the top corners, and a slight lean. Jacket is rubbed, with light toing to the spine and rear panel, with chips and tears overall. Still, a mostly presentable example of the scarce dust jacket.

There is a line in Gods and Monsters, a favorite film of mine in which I play James Whale, the English film director out there in Hollywood in the 30’s and he’s given a line by Christopher Bram: 'Making movies is the most wonderful thing in the world. Working with friends, entertaining people.' (x)

New World shopping mall, a four storey former shopping mall. Originally constructed as an eleven storey building. It was found to be in breach of old town Bangkok’s four storey limit on building heights. The top seven floors were demolished to adhere to building codes in 1997. In 1999 the mall burned due to suspected arson committed by a competitor in the area. The disaster resulted in several casualties, and the building has remained abandoned ever since. Not having a roof, the basement floor remains under several feet of water year round.

At some point in the early 2000s an unknown person began introducing a small population of exotic Koi and Catfish species. The small population of fish began to thrive and the result is now a self-sustained, and amazingly populated urban aquarium. Photos taken by Jesse Rockwell

How Solar-Paneled “Plug-And-Play Donkeys” Bring The Internet To Turkish Sheepherders

“My first reaction was that at least in some respects the ‘digital divide’ idea was collapsing,” says Erkan Saka, an assistant professor of communications at Bilgi University in Istanbul. “At least in terms of connecting the web, all citizens in Turkey are finding ways to connect.”

"She was honest. Honest. There was nothing phony about her. If she was having a breakdown, she made sure you had a breakdown, too, right along with her. If she was happy, there was no way you were not going to feel her happiness. The camera cannot lie. It can telegraph completely fabricated emotions, but it cannot lie when the honesty is already there. With Judy, you never saw a dishonest moment. Everything she did was so real that you don’t believe you’re watching an actress; you knew that you were seeing something that went beyond acting, greater than acting. It was reality. And she could take one song and give you a two-hour M-G-M movie between the first and last bars. And I’ve never seen anyone else do that. And then, of course, there was that incredible instrument; I’ve never heard a voice like that, either. In the world of popular music, she was what Joan Sutherland is to opera; she was what Joe DiMaggio was to baseball." — Rex Reed, John Fricke, “Judy Garland: A Portrait in Art & Anecdote.”

“I also thank Angelina for dressing in hijab while she visited not just Iraqi refugees but refugees in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Not only did she look good in it, she showed respect and appreciation for their culture and religion and made sure that the focus was not on her looks but rather her mission.”
