Local Trust Fund Baby Found Accepting Bribes in the Form of Confectionery 

Taemin is a chocoholic! Which is a bit ironic because dogs can’t eat chocolate. Reminds me of the time Jumin wanted to make wine that cats could drink lol

Here something I was working on before stuff blew over – thanks for giving me the motivation to finish it – especially since it is a Jumin piece ;;v;; Oh it’s also related to this ♥ Jumin is probably bursting with happiness because he finally has a decent photo with his son ♥

I missed painting so I tried refining this one – same art style, just with more depth and detail :D I can’t have messy sketches all the time – I also want polished stuff for keeping ♥ 

++quick bonus page because why not :D it’s so messy tho ill just fix it this weekend hhh

Ancient wisdom from the neural network

What happens when really old advice meets really new technology?

A recurrent neural network (like the open-source char-rnn framework used here) can teach itself to imitate recipes, paint colors, band names, and even guinea pig names. By examining a dataset, it learns to formulate its own rules about it, and can use these rules to generate new text that - according to the neural network - resembles the dataset. But since the neural network is doing all this without cultural context, or any knowledge of what the words really mean, the results are often a bit bizarre.

In this example, the dataset is a list of more than 2000 ancient proverbs, collected by reader Anthony Mandelli. Some of these are well-known, such as “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink.” and “Where there’s a will, there’s a way.” Others are frankly a bit strange: “Where there’s muck there’s brass.” and “A curst cow has short horns.” and “Be not a baker if your head is made of butter.”

What will a neural network make of this ancient wisdom?

If you answered “Really really weird proverbs”, you are correct.

A fox smells it better than a fool’s for a day.
No songer in a teacuper.
A fool in a teacup is a silent for a needle in the sale.
No man is the better pan on the hunder.
A mouse is a good bound to receive.
Do not come to the cow.

Some of them almost make sense:

A good wine makes the best sermon.
A good fear is never known till needed.
Death when it comes will have no sheep.
An ounce of the heart comes without an exception.
A good face is a letter to get out of the fire.
No wise man ever wishes to be sick.
A good excuse is as good as a rest.
There is no smoke without the best sin.
A good man is worth doing well.
A good anvil does not make the most noise.

While others would be more difficult to pass off as real proverbs:

We can serve no smort.
A good face is a letter like a dog.
A good earse makes a good ending.
Gnow will not go out.
Ung.
A fox smeep is the horse of the best sermon.
No sweet is half the barn door after the cat.
There is not fire and step on your dog and stains the best sermon.
An ox is a new dogn not sing in a haystar.

One of the oddest things to emerge from the proverb-trained neural network is a strange obsession with oxen. I checked, and there were only three oxen-related proverbs in the dataset, yet they appear frequently in the neural network’s version, and usually as rather powerful creatures.

An ox can lever an enemies are dangerous and restens at home.
An ox is not to be given with a single stone.
An ox is never known till needed.
An ox is as good as a best.
An ox is not to be that wound is hot.
An ox is a silent for the gain of the bush.
An ox is not fill when he will eat forever.

Whatever the internal mythos the neural network has learned from these ancient proverbs, oxen are mysteriously important.

🍀 🍄A summary of the Sabbats 🍄🍀

When I was a baby witch, it was really difficult for me to understand the Sabbats and the wheel of the year. To help all my baby witches, I made a short summary to make it easier. 

🎄 Yule (Date: on the winter solstice, dec. 20-23) 🎄

This is the Sabbat for celebrating rebirth. Many people celebrate it similarly to Christmas, with gift giving, feasting, and wreath making. People will often kiss a consenting partner under a sprig of mistletoe for good luck.

🐏  Imbolc (Date: feb. 2) 🐏 

This Sabbat celebrates the return of spring. People make corn dollies and set them in a basket next to a symbol of masculinity. Many Witches will clean out their homes during Imbolc.

🐣 Ostara (Date: on the vernal equinox, Mar. 20-23) 🐣 

This Sabbat celebrates the coming time of fertility. Egg decorating is common during this time.

🔥 Beltane (Date: May 1) 🔥

This Sabbat focuses on fertility. Many Pagans choose to conceive children at this time (or just to enjoy themselves sexually with a partner). Beltane festivals are often high energy, with plenty of dancing and bonfires. 

☀️ Litha (Date: on the summer solstice, Jun 20-23) ☀️

A Sabbat for celebrating the longest day of the year, as well as for mourning the shortening days after. Some Witches burn bonfires or light candles to represent the Sun.

🌾 Lughnasadh (Date: Aug 1 -> 1 day before my birthday!) 🌾

I love this Sabbat but I’m not able to pronounce this name :). This is the first of the three harvesting Sabbats. There are festivals of grain and bread. People make gingerbread men during this time.

🍁 Mabon (Date: on the autumnal equinox, sep. 20-23) 🍁

This is the second of the three harvesting Sabbats. Witches give thanks to the Earth and the harvest. Celebraters will make and drink wine at this time.

⛄️ Samhain (Date: nov. 1) ⛄️

This is the last of the three harvesting Sabbats. It is also the festival of the dead. The veil is at its thinnest at this time. Witches will sometimes hold a big feast during Samhain.

Feel free to contact me if you have more questions!

Blessings,

Pavilion of Photography in Château la Coste

Château la Coste is a vineyard in the south of France that, in addition to its wine-making program, includes major works of contemporary art and architecture across its 500 acre campus. Joining Tadao Ando, Frank Gehry, and Jean Nouvel, Renzo Piano is the latest Pritzker laureate to complete a structure for the ever-expanding complex. The ‘Pavilion of Photography’ forms a exhibition venue buried six meters below ground.

Surrounded by grapevines, the RPBW-designed building seeks to display art and preserve Château la Coste’s wine supplies. the sunken 285 square meter structure uses exposed concrete for the retaining and exhibition walls, a material choice that contrasts the glazed façades and roof canopy. ‘The partly buried building highlights the roof covered with a sail fastened to thin metal arches,’ explains the architects. ‘these arches echo the graphical layout of the grapevines, enabling to integrate the sail into the vineyard.

Sugar Baby Education 101: Wine & Food Pairing

When you are an SB, it is important for you to play the part in your SD’s life, meaning be well educated about things and have proper etiquette and KNOW your wine… or have at least an idea about wine and food paring.

 So here, my hoes a little basic overview (if want to learn more about wine, just google that shit out!)


Just like adding milk into coffee will change its texture and taste; food when interacting with wine will affect its flavor. Different ingredients and preparation methods will bring out different taste sensations with the same bottle of wine.

There are a lot of pairing guidelines, but only one universal pairing principle –

A good pairing is when the food and wine do not overshadow each other. Wine and food can complement or contrast each other, as long as they do not mask each other’s unique flavor and characteristics.

Factors to Consider when Pairing

When pairing food, you are really complementing or contrasting four elements. The way the dish is prepared and cooked will affect these elements:

Body/ weight: heavy, medium, or light-body?
Flavor intensity: weak, moderate, strong?
Aroma: earthy, fruity, grassy, or herbal?
Taste: sweet, spicy, acidic, sour, bitter?

Example 1: Most people prefer pairing Cabernet Sauvignon with steaks because they are both full-bodied, strong flavor, and the protein in the meat will soften the tannin in the wine. A venturing wine lover may pair a red steak with a full-bodied white Roussanne.

Example 2: With spicy, strong flavor Thai dishes, the classic gourmets would go for a Riesling. Its neutrality will complement Thai cuisine’s spices. Its acidity and med bodied will match the weight of the food. A venturing wine lover may pair with Gewurztraminer or Marsanne.

Our Favorite Wine and Food Pairings:

It is not always white wine with white meat… Pinot Noir, Beaujolais, Chianti are few handful reds that pair well with chicken. Below we have listed our favorite pairings as a good starting point:

Western Dishes:

Chicken – Full-bodied whites (Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc) or light reds (Beaujolais, Pinot Noir, Rioja, Chianti)
Foie Gras / Pate - Sweet whites (Sauternes, Riesling Spatlese, Tokaji)
Green Salad – Herby whites (Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Blanc, Sancerre, Pouilly-Fume, Vinho Verde)
Grilled Fish – Light to medium bodied whites (Sauvignon Blanc, Vinho Verde, Chablis)
Pasta (red sauce) – acidic reds (Barbera, Chianti, Zinfandel / Primitivo, Valpolicella)
Pasta (white sauce) – fuller bodied whites (Chardonnay, Viognier, Gavi, Pinot Gris)
Pizza - Sparkling or a fruity red (Prosecco, Barbera, Dolcetto, Valpolicella)
Raw or steamed shellfish – Crisp, acidic wines (Champagne, Sauvignon Blanc, Chablis)
Steak – Full-bodied red (Cabernet, Merlot, Syrah, Malbec, Barolo)

Asian Cuisines:

Chinese – Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Sauvignon Blanc, and Pinot Noir
Japanese Sushi – Beaujolais, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling
Spicy Thai / Indian Curry – Viognier, Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Rousanne

Cheese:

Creamy soft brie or camembert – Champagne, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, dry Riesling
Strong goat cheese – Sancerre, Sauvignon Blanc, Pouilly-Fume
Hard / Aged cheese – Bordeaux, Cabernet Sauvignon, Brunello, Dolcetto, Merlot, white Burgundy
Semi-hard cheese – Semillon, Rioja
Smoked cheese – Gewurztraminer, Sauternes, Shiraz
Blue cheese – Sauternes, Banyuls, Port, Late harvest wines, Madeira, Amarone;

Last but not least, some PAIRING TIPS:

Acidic wines go well with many dishes. Sauvignon Blanc, dry Riesling, Chianti are great examples. In addition, acidic wines make salty dishes appear less salty.
For fatty food such as foie gras, try Sauternes (an equally rich and intense wine).
For spicy food, try fruity, low-alcohol wines such as Riesling and Gewurztraminer.
Sweet food goes well with a bottle that is slightly sweeter.

Pair complex food with a simple wine. And pair simple food with a complex wine.

TalesFromRetail: Daylight savings is a real b*tch, ain't it?

So daylight savings was yesterday. And our store closes at 5pm on Sundays.

So it’s around 4:50pm and some stragglers are proceeding to the checkout lines, when I see FrequentCustomer (FC) approaching. Now, FC is a nice guy, and he comes to the store every Sunday at close to 4pm to peruse the isles. He’s usually one of the last customers we ring out every Sunday.

So he walks in, and my supervisor says “hey, you’re later than usual today. Forget to set the clocks ahead?” FC is confused and asked what he meant. Supervisor realizes FC forgot about Daylight savings, and explains that it was today. Did I mention FC is usually a really nice guy?

FC: ..get out. Get OUT it’s only 4 o'clock, right??

S: No, it’s almost 5. We close in 10 minutes.

FC: But, I need to make a case of wine! I can’t do that in 10 minutes.

S: …I don’t know what to say? We close in 10 minutes.

FC began grumbling as he stomped through a couple of isles with a cart. You know when a customer wants to let you know they’re upset? So they huff loudly, and drive their carts all rickety making them clank and squeak? He did that for the whole 10 minutes. It was kinda shocking. So Supervisor locks the door to prevent others from coming in, and tells FC to proceed to the register.

FC: I’m not done yet.

S: I hate to break it to you, but you need to leave. I don’t know if you’re aware, but [County] has strict Sunday Liquor laws, and if I don’t punch in the security code for the door in 15 minutes, they’re gonna send a cop car around to check.

And that’s not a lie. We can’t sell before Noon, or after 5 on a Sunday. FC said the famous words we all hear at some point:

Not my problem.

Cue Supervisor pleading, FC refusing… it wasn’t a good time. Luckily with enough badgering Supervisor got FC to leave, sans wine.

We counted the last register we had open as quickly as possible. And punched in the code with a couple of minutes to spare. FC ain’t so nice in my book anymore.

  • He just comes home and tells you to pack your necessities because you are leaving that evening 
  • Has a painting of you and Elizabeth 3rd in the living room 
  • He has hand chosen your wardrobe (of course, if you saw something you liked he would encourage you to purchase it)
  • Often times he will come home with a new purse, shoes or dress saying he saw it in a magazine or shop window and had to have it for you 
  • Jumin is a plethora of random knowledge
  • Often times he sits with you and reads out loud to you while you drink wine in the bedroom or the living room 
  • He loves articles or books on random facts and sometimes he will hear about a subjects and become engrossed in it so he starts to research more and more and falls down the rabbit hole of useless but intriguing knowledge 
  • Enjoys you showing him new things, he is CONSTANTLY asking you questions 
    • “And what is this called, darling?”
    • “Those are french fries.”
    • “Ah!” he beams. “How fascinating. I have been to France a number of occasions but have yet to see these…’fries.’

Phoenix was the champ of hanging out. Many of his friends were much older, and he would spend days or even weeks with them, writing poetry, drinking wine, making videos, wrestling, playing frisbee (with considerably more enthusiasm than skill), cooking veggies (ditto), scarfing Japanese and Indian food. He couldn’t sit still to be bored. “If the news was on when he came over to my house, he’d make a face at the TV and then leave,” says Josh Greenbaum, the drummer in Aleka’s Attic. Phoenix was always on the phone, making funny little jig movements with his hands and face, singing “Hey, Jude” when he was feeling heady

Marinette looked around the living room, from the music system to the table covered with bowl and bags off what could easily be all the snacks found on the French market. Marinette wasn’t especially in the mood to party, she would have rather stayed at home and finish some designs, especially after the fact that there was an akuma that morning that managed to ruin her sleeping late plans. But Alya insisted, saying there wil be amiliar faces too. And Marinette totally didn’t come because Alya promised Nino is brinign her a certain blond someone who just arrived back to Paris from one year exchange in Milano. Totally not. She was perfectly content with having a friendly conversation with Adrien after only seeing him through Skype for a year. Until he walked in the room. And Marinette finally understood just how low quality the skype camera was.
