- Recent research has now established that thinking too much can rot the brain.
- Just as hard labor leaves marks on the hands, hard thinking leaves marks on the brain.
- It appears that chemicals excreted by thinking cells may not be cleared away quickly enough and may poison and kill the brain cells.
- Men’s brains rot a lot faster than women’s.
Isn’t this fun to know? It’s almost a no brainer!
So I just watched one of the best vampire movies I’ve seen in a long time. It’s called “A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night” and wow! It wasn’t scary, or even very bloody, but it was strange and moody, very intelligent and definitely something I will watch again and again. Loved the ending!
The official trailer doesn’t do it justice. Here’s a scene from the movie that will give you a good idea of what you are in for when you watch it:
I found the movie mesmerizing and now, I can’t stop thinking about it. It’s one of those great experiences that sticks to your mind, and now the world around you is just a tiny bit changed. Anyway… I can’t say enough about it. So, buy a copy, or find it online somewhere and watch it!
Oh, and there’s also a comic book. It’s a prequel to the movie, and looks pretty cool. Here’s a review:
When I see a title of a comic called A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night it screams bad things are going to happen here! to me. What I wasn’t expecting was a comic that reads like Sin City mixed with Batman and a dose of the supernatural. A lady vigilante prowls the night with internal monologues and a thirst for the living. It is drawn with white lines on black background giving it a very stylistic look. It isn’t the deepest comic around but it is an engaging comic with some genuine build-up and twist moments. –Comic Reviews at IGN
Here we have 14 steps to how to make an angel food cake Nietzsche style. The recipe is by Rebecca Coffey, and I think it might actually make a cake! Maybe I’ll try it!
1. Allow the angel to reach room temperature. Then kill it.
2. Kill God. Set Him aside.
3. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
4. Ecstatically whip, as if possessed by a storm-wind of freedom, 1-1/2 cups of excellent egg whites with 1/4 tsp. salt and 1-1/2 tsp. cream of tartar. Continue until peaks are as if raised to their own heights and given wings in a fine air, a robust air.
5. Gradually add 3/4 cup sugar, about 3 tbsp. at a time.
6. You are brilliant.
7. Now, add 1 tsp. vanilla and 1/4 tsp. almond extract, and then sift together 1-1/4 cups flour and 3/4 cup sugar.
8. Blend in God and the angel. Emboldened, add the egg mixture.
9. Gaze into the überbatter. The überbatter will gaze into you.
10. While prancing about in a frenzy of self-satisfaction and anticipation, use a rubber scraper to push the überbatter into an ungreased 10″ tube pan, for it is destined to be there.
11. Bake on a lower rack until done, usually 35-40 minutes, while reciting to the upper rack a long, convoluted anecdote about your childhood.
12. Invert the tube pan over a bottle for a few hours. Then impetuously rap the pan. Shout, “Aha!” and slide a knife along the pan’s insides.
13. Call what tumbles out a cake if you dare. Call it miraculous even.
14. Eat it. It is delicate, morbid, lovable, and you will die depressed, delirious, and overweight.

The birds’ favorite songs
You do not hear,
For their most flamboyant music takes place
When their wings are stretched
Above the trees
And they are smoking the opium
Of pure freedom.
It is healthy for the prisoner
To have faith
That one day she will again move about
Wherever she wants,
Feel the wondrous gift of life –
Find all wounds, and debts stamped
I once asked a bird,
“How is it that you fly in this gravity
“Love lifts Me.”
– Hafiz, The Gift
