moi, avec mes cousins

May 27th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

(Except for Dan who is my brother, not my cousin)

(Also except for Morrison, who is also not my cousin)

(But wouldn’t THAT have been a fun twist)

We are Gathered in Cleveland, Ohio, which, btw, I just learned is east of Illinois and north of West Virginia, for cousin Elli’s wedding. There are something absurd like 32 cousins on my Moms side, and whenever we get to see each other, we do what cousins are meant to do, by which I mean VICIOUSLY SHAME AND TROLL ALL OF THE OTHER COUSINS WHO DIDN’T SHOW UP.

Azulik, or Choices

May 13th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

Azulik is the most famous bar in Tulum, maybe because you can sit in a nest in the jungle sky and watch the sun go down over the ocean, OR MAYBE BECAUSE EACH COCKTAIL COMES WITH A SIDE OF EITHER SPICED MIXED NUTS OR PLUMMETING TO YOUR DEATH.

Yes, people actually drink their drinks on these suspended hammocks. THEY HIDE THEIR FEAR AND APPREHENSION ONLY WHILE THE PICTURE IS TAKEN, BUT HONESTLY, NOT THAT WELL.

May 11th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

Today, on I am determined to have as much fun as humanly possible before I go back to work: E and I are in Tulum for a few days and It’s perfect and beautiful and I think specifically designed for girls on who want to take Pictures of Things and then eat Tacos and look at their Pictures. It’s got everything!

Trash.

May 10th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

Caught this painting (caught? Do you catch a paining like you catch a movie, though NEITHER MOVE OR RUN?) at the Pasadena contemporary art museum last week — it’s massive, by Constance Mallinson, and contains SO MUCH GORGEOUS TRASH and I can’t stop looking at it:

I feel like the more I look at it, the closer I am to understanding something? PERHAPS THAT I MYSELF AM TRASH?

Ooooh, tell somebody

May 8th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

Today, on WHY ISN’T DONALD GLOVER MY FRIEND, AND IF WE MET, WOULD WE BECOME FRIENDS OR WOULD I MUMBLE INTO MY HAIR ABOUT COOKIE DOUGH AND DIVERSE CASTING AND BLOW IT: I have now watched Childish Gambino’s This is America approximately 37 Times, so I can say with confidence (and authority? Sure!) that it’s brilliant. Specially because: when you watch it, you think to yourself, hey look, it’s a cool black guy doing cool dance moves and saying cool things over a cool beat! Gosh, black guys are so cool. But that’s just the foreground. In the background to his antics (and often in soft focus) it’s melee. People are chased and killed by cops while kids just sit there, filming it with their phones. But we’re too distracted by his Weirdly charming Jim Crow Minstrel show moves to even notice. THE ACT OF WATCHING THE VIDEO PROVES THE ARTIST’S POINT. HE TRICKS US INTO HIS POV. It’s like one of those stare at it until an elephant emerges paintings from the 90s, but the elephant is the fetishization of black culture. DONALD: I KNOW ITS STILL EARLY IN OUR FRIENDSHIP BUT PLZ LISTEN TO ME: NEVER STOP.

Spicez / Herbz

April 22nd, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

WHO’S GOT TWO HANDS AND SIGNED UP FOR A WORKSHOP ALL ABOUT HOW TO PROPERLY GROW, STORE AND GRIND VARIOUS SPICES AND HERBS? THESE NERDS!

AND ALSO MYSELF. Above nerds are kind strangers turned friends who I met yesterday at Radical Cooks, an east LA cooking school where I will definitely be returning. Participants leave with their own spice blend AND with the moral superiority that organically comes with being able to tell the difference between cilantro and parsley. The school offers a variety of classes and I now want to take all of them so obviously I will have to FIND THE THYME (it’s dying in a small pot in my backyard / see how easy it is to find thyme?)
