Chocolate Fondue Lamp Shade

This tasty lamp shade was created by designer Alexander Lervik, it’s a chocolate pyramid over an incandescent light bulb. When you turn on the light he chocolate slowly melts and eventually you are left with a puddle of tasty chocolate goo to dip fruit, marshmallows, fingers or other body parts in.

I’m not entirely sure how it keeps the chocolate warm and melted once its in. The bowl, but I’m sure it has a way of doing that.

The Poetry of Light chocolate lamp, unlike other lamps, is completely dark when you first turn it on, mimicking light spreading along the horizon at sunrise. The heat from the lamp causes the chocolate to begin melting, and it takes several minutes for the first rays of light to penetrate. Holes soon form and as the light grows the chocolate melts. The material and structure of the lamp are the result of pure curiosity. Alexander Lervik wanted to explore the possibility of creating a contrast to light, i.e. dark. The shape of the lamp has been devised based on extensive testing involving the melting process.

The Avengers Has Turned the Internet Shawarma Crazy

Words cannot describe my love for shawarma, if you aren’t familiar with shawarma it’s chicken or lamb or more recently beef cooked on a huge rotating skewer rolled up in flat bread with some vegetables sauce (Garlic sauce or tahina depending on the meat) and occasionally french fries (Although I think the french fries are not part of the traditional recipe) and it is what I grew up eating. It’s a staple food in the middle east, it costs about 50p (I reackon 75 cents?) and it absolutely delicious.

I’ve had shawarma in London, Glasgow and even Tokyo I think if you told me I could only eat one food for the rest of my life I’d pick shawarma. But enough about that. I’ve noticed the internet has picked up on shawarma because of a passing reference to it in the Avengers.

This can only be a good thing as it will hopefully lead to shawarma being more mainstream, which means that I will have access to it wherever I go!

Next Gory Japanese Movie I Want to Get: Dead Sushi!

When sushi goes bad! I’m not entirely sure what the premise of this film is aside from bits of sushi killing people, and to be honest I’m not sure I need much more of a premise. Dead Sushi is by the same people who did Machine Girl and Robo-Geisha which you can tell by the voice over on the trailer which sounds like the same guy who did the voice over for the Robo-Geisha trailer.

I have a copy of Robo Geisha sitting on my shelf waiting to be watched, the only reason that we haven’t watched it is that Avarinne and I have an agreement that she will watch iton the condition that I watch Human Centipede, why she wants to watch Human Centipede I don’t know…

Bullet Bill Kitchenaid Mixer

Boom, bitches!

What else are you going to do when you get a mixer that looks like this? Apart from order some custom decals from Mustard Seed Dreams to make it look like a Bullet Bill from Super Mario Brothers? I’m a little disappointed that the arms aren’t little plastic arms, but it still looks cool.

Bullet bill, up in your grill!

I only hope that the person who writes Bake With Vengence used this mixer to make this cake:
