On the last page of this Time interview, Neil Gaiman expresses his exasperation with Hollywood executives:
NG: Yes. It really is this thing of executives loving the smell of their own urine and urinating on things. And then more execs come in, and they urinate. And then the next round. By the end, they have this thing which just smells like pee, and nobody likes it.

Christian Aubry, président du syndicat professionnel des homéopathes du Québec, s’énerve.

Sunil Laxman talks about his quest for the perfect dosa. For my part, I’m still trying to adapt my cooking style to the new mix I started using. My dosas are not perfect. That’s for sure!
I recently went from using papadums to using papads to accompany my sambar (or I should say: to accompany the sambar I pull of a can because I’m Mr. Lazy when it comes to cooking). I find that I prefer the papads… even though I tend to burn them a bit.
