    blasphemy! u can also boil them up with a smattering of salt and eat them once they cool (after peeling the skin), taste a bit like water chestnut

    ya they look way too ripe to be made into sayur gori or gudeg, fave dish from my hometown yogyakarta, but i think you can still make them into dried fruits (standard method i imagine) or fry em up into chips!
  3. in my lockdown boredom i joined a bookclub, we're reading mariana enriquez's dangers of smoking in bed atm and it begins with an epigraph from will oldham
  4. the below by roy is one of the best denim jawnz theories if ever there was one: "Here is a concept I’d like to start with: Most jeans, in spite of the cut, will essentially look the same on you as all other jeans. This is because denim fabric stretches out for comfort and literally takes the shape of the wearer. True, the leg may be fuller, etc., but in my experience, the issues most folks are attempting to solve with “the perfect fit” are really more body issues than a fit issue. Therefore, regardless of cut or fabric, the criticism will be of the same tenor, and one tends to fixate on fallacious rules to jeans wearing or jeans they “cannot wear”. I’m aware that this is not a popular opinion, but I’ve made several thousand jeans with my own hands and done several years of custom-fit jeans making, so just take it for what its worth (see above). Now that’s not to say that jeans can’t be more or less flattering. What I’m saying is that the issues most folks are compelled to improve are things that observers of the wearer rarely have issue with. Conversely the “solutions” that the wearer employs often cause the majority of observers to scratch their heads. You’ve no doubt, wondered about someone in line at the cafe wearing exactly the least possible flattering jeans for them. Trust me, they were just trying to solve a problem, to them. Enough amateur psychoanalysis; I’m simply trying point out some observations. Style is opinion, like this one: I think short people look great in wide leg jeans that are hemmed short or cuffed so they don’t touch the shoe. There’s no rules, its all opinion. We’re all wearing costumes that try to convey something about who we are, so express yourself and don’t worry too much about it. If you’re inexperienced then try something." og here
  5. i started having terrible insomnia since the pandemic began (still in self-imposed lockdown here in jakarta, and still no jabs). tried every cure from a dram or two (or three...) of whisky for a nightcap to those rain on a lake youtube vids, no go. this seemed to work for a while:

    i nearly bought the whisky cat early in my artisanal denim journey, circa 2010?, tried it on at take5 shanghai. was intrigued by it but didnt really "understand" it. the denim was softer than the samurai war model and the fc1108 that i also tried on, thought the diaper butt looked kinda funky in a good way, but why does it have to be so bulbous, kinda made it look a bit costumey/cosplayesque? walked into the store wearing a slim dry bones pair so the fit discrepancy was too much? of course i regret not buying it especially since when i finally understood the appeal it wasn't very easy to get anymore (there was one pair left in masuya not in my size) but the fc1108 i walked away with that afternoon has turned out to be one of my fave pairs ever and also, i dont know, perhaps that was the pair i was (((ready for))), i knew the 501 references, the slim-straight fit wasnt too far away from the slim dry bones i was sporting at that time (so that i ended up wearing it to death instead of having doubts whenever i put it on as you do when you have a garment youre not sure of/100% believe in), and not getting it sort of allowed me to stay curious about denim history/allowed me to learn about it in a manageable, linear way down thru the years (from 66 backwards)? so when i finally got my old timey pair a few years later (rs blacksmith) i was totally ready for it. dang havent written a denim rumination for ages lol. thanks duke!

    Shoes that look better with age...

    have noticed those too which made me think do they just brogue the toe caps the same for every brogue town or country and when they have storm welts theyd get covered up in the bottom
