If grandmothers around the world had a rallying cry, it would probably sound something like “You need to eat!”
Photographer Gabriele Galimberti’s grandmother said something similar to him before one of his many globetrotting work trips. To ensure he had at least one good meal, she prepared for him a dish of ravioli before he departed on one of his adventures.
“In that occasion I said to my grandma ‘You know, Grandma, there are many other grandmas around the world and most of them are really good cooks,” Galimberti wrote via email. “I’m going to meet them and ask them to cook for me so I can show you that you don’t have to be worried for me and the food that I will eat!’ This is the way my project was born!”
The project, “Delicatessen With Love”, took Galimberti to 58 countries where he photographed grandmothers with both the ingredients and finished signature dishes.
He acted as photographer and stylist during each shoot with the grandmothers, taking a portrait of both the women and the food they made for him.

I am here for everything in this post.
February 18th was the day that Chantal and I split up. I’m still completely rocked by it, and still find myself breaking down.. Though I’ll never forget the reason, I couldn’t go on any further. I’m so unsure about a kid.. And to be honest, I fucked up, and it’s unknown but also unforgivable. God I miss being loved…
Laura… You started as the other girl, but since then you became so much more.. I could have fallen for you, in fact I did. You coulda gotten away with murder… But you fucked up. You pushed away a sure thing. And I’m glad it happened sooner than later. Stopping time.. Reversing time.. This second I can hear your heartbeat still.. I got completely lost in your eyes and saw something very warm..
I’m maybe realizing that all I actually saw in those eyes was my own reflection. And there’s some solace in finally knowing that I still got the fire of my ferocity burning inside. I’m not nearly as dead as I once was, and my greatness is so very close..
The author and artist ManWoman passed away this am. I still remember meeting him at his show in Vancouver in the early 90’s. It was at 12 midnights gallery, smash… by the cambie. his show opened my eyes to some great things. Thank you ManWoman. Thank you for having the courage to shine the pure light on a symbol that has been around FAR longer than the hate that stole it. The swastika was maybe your life’s work. To share what it has represented for so long, a symbol of love and positivity. You took on the negative emotions that people understandably associate with it… and tried to show them the history of this positive symbol. At times, that must have felt like such a huge endeavour. I have a lot of respect for you for doing this. Thank you for being an artist, and rebel.
safe journey sir. may we chat again on the other side…. in another life.
Rest in Peace Manny.

Oops. That apartment fell through. Back to the drawing board, so to speak.
I bet this would all be far more productive if Toronto wasn’t a nightmare to find a decent apartment in. I have seen apartments that no one should be allowed to rent, and it shocks me when the…
Winnipeg.. Under $700, and I have hardwoods, fireplace, French doors separating the dining room, and a giant bathtub..
It is, however, Winnipeg..
Getting all 4 wisdom teeth out tomorrow… Of course that means I do my ritual of writing an informal will, letters to loved ones, and being up til stupid in the morning… I wouldn’t mind so much if I could go under a local, and watch… I hate the idea of conscious sedation.. I’d feel so much more comfortable if I could watch.. But I suppose they’re gonna have to be all up in my shit with those fucking impacted teeth.
I couldn’t watch all of this, I was crying too much. I fucking hate kids like this. Fucking wimps.
STUDENTS MAKE BUS MONITOR CRY!!!
Four students in a middle school in my town made a video harassing their school bus monitor. In this ten minute video, they verbally abuse her over and over again, saying things as terrible as “I hope your kids kill themselves so they don’t have to be around you” and they were gonna “stab her in the stomach”. Her son committed suicide ten years ago. The police are handling the undetermined consequences for the children who were harassing her. It has already been on the local news and the video currently has over 280,000 views on Youtube, and over $40,000 has been raised for her to go on vacation, she only makes $15,506 a year. 1,300 emails have been sent to the school district regarding this. A local radio guy in my town tweeted Ellen the video. We want this to go viral and for those kids to be humiliated. She has also been interviewed on the news, aswell as a parent of one of the kids. If you want to send her a sweet message, her name is Karen Huff Klein.
Here is the link to her Facebook page:
Here is the link to the tweet we want to get to Ellen:
Here is the fundraiser to give her a vacation if you want to donate! You can donate as little or as much as you want:
On the link above, there are links to the staff emails including the principal of the school, links to the other videos, links to the schools website, information on the bus number, and the school’s fax number.
WE WANT TO GET THIS ON ELLEN OR ON NATIONAL NEWS! HELP OUT KAREN KLEIN! TEAM KAREN!
wow i only made it 2:30 in i literally hate everyone.
why didn’t anyone do anything!??
oh my god and this is in Rochester.
Oh are you fucking kidding me, this is horrible.
I’d love 30 seconds alone with each kid… That could be my mom. That could be your mom.
Just remember, you little shitbags… One day this could be you, or could be done 10 times worse to your “wonderful mother”… And maybe then you’ll understand. But more than anything, I hope you die slowly in a hideous and terrifying fire.
I almost feel that it’s lame that I’m so super stoked to learn the Concertina.. Never thought I’d be the accordion kinda guy
