Chocolate has enjoyed a fun yet sweet renaissance of being used in art. Sculptures, fashion, furniture, mini buildings – it seems chocolate can be used for anything beyond the obvious. But a lot of the art created is made for looks (OK, that chocolate bench was both a bench and a cake, though I may be hesitant on eating what was meant for people’s butts to sit on) and looks only.
Recall that article I wrote ages ago about things sculpted from chocolate? Like busts of famous people and furniture? Well the chocolate art doesn’t stop there. How about a camera made of chocolate? Does it take chocolate pictures? Or the tennis shoes made of leather – chocolate leather? It seems chocolate art has become much more intricate and delicate. There’s even real life art treasures like the Arc de Triumph on display now! And forget just human busts, there are life size figures of people being made now.
Nuclear fallout happened one day. I was simply at home, typing away then, bam, a flash of light! Then the world went still. I didn’t think much of it and kept working. Over the day I felt itchy, scratchy and shaky. I even noticed that spots on my skin felt soft, almost too much. Like I pressed a finger onto a strange discolored patch of skin and it felt slimy, and cold.
I’ve never thought I would say this but, hallelujah, I need this! I mean, I love chocolate (as proven by this blog). I enjoy me a good glass of Guinness (even a car bomb if I’m feeling foggy). But a Guinness and chocolate cake? It never occurred to me. Now I’m no chef or anything, but I’ve been one to toy around with things that you’d think wouldn’t go together. Rice, hot dogs and soy. Eggs with taco sauce and sour cream. Hot dogs with ranch, cheese and pickles.
