    Pagan Meditations: The Worlds of Aphrodite, Hestia, and Artemis by Ginette Paris.
    Conservatism is the blind and fear-filled worship of dead radicals.


    Oh, we're always all right. You remember that. We happen to other people.

    And I see fire, hollowing souls
    And I see fire, blood in the breeze
    And I hope that you'll remember me...

    Bladegrave by Tanith Lee. Loved the premise but the execution wasn't there.
    I'm super lazy and not in the mood to do anything. Bite me, ENTP.

    Still chugging along on Borge's Labyrinths. Starting on Plato's Republic, I have low expectations for it, but I thought I'd give it a go for having some grounding in historical thought.

    "Hello, My Name is Ice Cream". This might be the most awesome book I've read this year. It's about making various types of ice cream, sherbet, frozen yogurt, and toppings like milk jam, caramelized Rice Crispies, cinnamon-brown sugar streusel, butterscotch ripple, and gooey butter cake.

    If you boil milk with a little sugar, it will eventually become golden brown and transform into a spreadable jam. You might know it as dulce de leche. Unlike caramel, which gets its deep golden brown flavor from the breakdown of sugars, milk jam gets its flavor from the Maillard reaction, which involves the browning of proteins. You might find yourself spooning milk jam on everything, from cookies to toast, and even into your morning coffee - hint, hint.
    Truly life changing if you like ice cream.

    On Connoisseurship and Reason in the Authentification of Art by Andrew Brainerd

    It's quite good especially if you're interested in art authentification. Brainerd's idea is basically to show the difference there is between ‘connoisseurship’ (he considers a bit like the 'sixth sense' of the authenticator which is rarely questioned) and reason that relies on sciences, and he shows this through some case studies.

    Brainerd was actually a lawyer who bought four paintings in the late 1960's which were thought at first to be forgeries as their owner had been branded as a crook and forger by professional authenticators. So Brainerd wanted to prove that an expert’s intuition wasn’t always right since it could be influenced sometimes for financial, professional subjective reasons.

    What’s also interesting is that this book describes the main scientific methods of investigation used to detect forgeries
    Great art captures a time, a place and an emotion.

    I'm at my most serious when I'm joking
