Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind.
Orphan Black, 02x02
It’s interesting, because we were just talking about creation vs. evolution as a source of life beginnings at Church this past Sunday. It’s certainly a fascinating topic, even as Christians, it can be difficult to grapple with how exactly Creation came to be and the context of Genesis.
I like how Orphan Black explores themes like this: religion vs science, nature vs nurture, accelerated technology vs established conventions. I definitely think science and religion can coincide and actually help each other coexist. To me, science is proof that God created such amazing things such as our human biology, the laws of physics, etc.
"Wildest Moments" by Pure Bathing Culture // Originally be Jessie Ware (2013)
Pure Bathing Culture are wrapping up a breakthrough year, following the release of their wonderful album, "Moon Tides". Apparently not content to just sit around, they’ve cut a little treat for the fans and posted it on their Soundcloud page. The dream pop duo have covered Jessie Ware's hit, “Wildest Moments”. The result is less melancholic ballad and more of a downtempo, chiller than chill, island flavored jam. Pure Bathing Culture excel at this sort of thing, crafting dreamy modern day beauties that feel like they were drafted in some dream space between Roxy Music's “Avalon' and Cocteau Twins' “Iceblink Luck”. It's a great cover and one that fans of either version will dig.
I’ve listened to this song on repeat once for about 10x… brilliant.

"I’m the science!" - Cosima Niehaus
I really adore her so far.
I can only dream!
wow this looks soo good right now!
So yesterday I was helping sort out fresh fruits at the bakery and I got free figs!! FRESH figs. I’ve never had fresh figs in my life! They are soo good and just amazing, I wish it wasn’t such a rare commodity around here. It wasn’t just me that was excited; two of the other chefs sneaked over and ate a few, stashed a couple away… aah, the gift of fresh fruits!
I also love dried figs, fig jam, fig vinaigrettes… and to think I disliked them once upon a time. I’m trying to savour the remaining few figs I have… I would love to make a gorgeous fig tart or something if I had that many!!

↳ Felix Dawkins
This guy. Oh my goodness.
I loved the scene in episode one where he rocked that turquoise kimono robe…. and I love the name ‘Felix.’
I had a wonderful day exploring the downtown near me (which surprisingly, I never have??) and volunteering at the farmers’ market! It’s fun to be a tourist in your own town… and I absolutely just love the feeling of walking around somewhat aimlessly on a beautiful sunny day. I found an almost new copy of The Pianist DVD at a thrift store, and this adorable kangaroo pin. It was a good day :)
Also- I started watching Orphan Black!! Thanks for the overwhelming response to my question about what show to watch next, haha. Only two episodes in and I love Felix… and wow Tatiana Maslany is truly amazing!! How does she do it?!
Fun fact of the day
So I was looking into Orphan Black and guess what!!
I share the same birthday as Tatiana Maslany! I can never find people with the same birthday as me. Cool.
Shows to watch??
I dunno which show to start next……
Shows I like: Pushing Daisies, Skins, Wonderfalls, Mad Men, Sherlock, etc…
I really wanted to start watching Hannibal, but I’m about 10 minutes into episode 1 and it already seems too gorey for me?? I don’t even watch scary movie previews haha. But the show premise just seems so interesting…. worth it?
I’ve also heard great things about Orphan Black!
This week’s fun baking project: Courtesan au Chocolat as seen in “The Grand Budapest Hotel”
Still can’t get over these!!
I made some today, but I was rushed for time and short on ingredients so it didn’t turn out as well as I hoped. I’ll upload some pics tomorrow! I’m proud of my first attempt though :)
These are suuuch a Wes dessert…. Very time-consuming and requires meticulous effort, but so beautiful!
