GOOD: Making food (quality of life) even better

January19

Unlike most avid blog readers I don’t set my my google reader. I find it becomes to hard to read everything every day (information overload!). When I do have down time, I find myself relying on Lost At E Minor, NYT and GOOD.

plater of food

For the next few days GOOD is hosting a blog festival called Food for Thinkers (I love it) an online conversation looking at food writing from as broad and unusual variety of perspectives. The “food hub” will have up to date news, infographics, stories, interviews and investigative reports exploring important food issues and what you (the eating public/citizens of the world) can do to take action.

While I always enjoy good pairing when it comes to food, the same goes for reading. Awhile back The Times had a great article on people who photograph their food and upload the photos online called “First Camera, Then Fork“.  So feast on that!

p.s. In the Few Good Menus section there is an article about the New York Public Library and their collection of menus. I recognized the menu featured as it is the menu for Florent! I know this become of my involvement with 2010 NYC Food Film Festival not because I was around back then…

Are you a hungry filmmaker?

November24

May I suggest the upcoming HUNGRY FILMMAKERS EVENT taking place on December 15th at 7:00pm at Film Anthology in NYC.

hungry-logo-for-press-release-300x76

HUNGRY FILMMAKERS is an evening of excerpts from upcoming doc films that take on food and agricultural issues. Shelley is co-curating the event alongside food writer Cathy Erway. We’ve all asked the questions, so now it’s time to see some reactions to the growing discussion of the environment and food, farming and our eating choices. A panel discussion with the attending filmmakers will immediately follow the screenings.Anna Lappé, food activist and author, will keep the discussion rolling and get your questions answered as moderator.

Now, I did mention food? At 9 pm come on over to Jimmy’s No 43 for an after party filled with good people, good discussion and of course good eats. Sample some hors d’oeuvres from locally sustainable purveyors such as Blue Isle Oyster Company, Mama O’s Kimchee, 3-Corner Field Farm, Schoolhouse Kitchen and more. A bar and Restaurant, Jimmy’s No. 43 uses local farm-sourced ingredients from Slow Food NYC and believes in supporting local arts and sustainable food communities. Bon Appetit!

Green is Digital Dec 5th cause GREEN is the new BLACK

This has been the year of “GREEN”. Everybody’s doing it or talking about doing it or marketing their products as “green” just to fit in. I’ve seen new green film festivals and business pop over the last year (or two). Al Gore is on SNL and 30 Rock, so people are finally paying attention (or at least that is what we all like to believe).

On December 5th from 12p-6p at The Apartment  (101 Crobsy St) two colleagues of mine are producing GREEN IS DIGITAL: SUSTAINABILITY IS BUSINESS.

Join them for a day of networking  and hear some of the most dynamic leaders in the green movement today speak about the the business of sustainability in the digital and media space. Participants will be engaging in a salon style forum where content and networking are key.

Their speakers are individually selected and share a wealth of business, media and strategic knowledge that is valuable for all those interested in the triple bottom line for green businesses.

Speakers include:

Anurag Ahuja, Co-Founder, PageTurnPro

Christopher Conway, President, GreenT Digital

Brian Clark Howard (The Daily Green)

Daniel Schutzsmith, Digital Strategy Consultant/ Professor SVA

The Fun Theory.

October11

In viral news. The fun theory is everywhere. I LOVE SMART PEOPLE WITH CLEAVER IDEAS. The real question is, if any of these “fun tactics” were implemented permanently, would the behavoir continue or would people go back to resorting to old lazy ways?

Exhibition Alert: Opening of TRASHION at 151 Bowery tonight 8/4

August4

via Gothamist

Tonight is the official opening of the Trashion-Dungeon, where you’ll have to “navigate through a labyrinth of trash curtains to see illuminated work in a dirty, dingy basement, with guided tours by candlelight only. Artists on display will be Tara McManus, Ben Devoe, Marcus Jefferson, Boneman, and Rolando Politi. Creepy saxophone, live painting, and free wine, cheese, and berries.” As a whole, this is “a refuge for things underused, wasted, or under-appreciated to come together and form a larger work.”
