On Monday we need some fun (or not so fun, but important) facts:
~ Did you know that Honolulu has its own version of the Amazing Race? The Gaymazing Race is June 27.
~ Bonnie Friedman who does PR for David Paul’s Island Grill on Maui (among other companies), is blogging every day about what she sees and does at the Venice Biennial–her photos make it seem like you’re there…almost.
~ Get another inside look at the Biennial in Geoff Dyer’s fantastic novel (two dueling novellas, really), Jeff in Venice, Death in Varanasi
~ Always wanted chickens but thought your yard was too small? Omlet has a cool, if pricey, solution. You can also read about organic chicken farms in The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals.
~ So maybe you didn’t read the book, The End of the Line: How Overfishing Is Changing the World and What We Eat–but now you can watch the film. Check out the trailer for the film version of Charles Clover’s essential missive, daring you to face the truth that we are running out of fish.
