randwiches:

Broiled avocado with egg, lemon salt, parmesan cheese , cayenne pepper, and olive oil. Torched for extra drama.
I tried a version with egg white only and it was not as fun as poking the runny yolk above.

“In Washington DC , at a Metro Station, on a cold January morning in  2007, a man with a violin played six Bach pieces for about 45 minutes.  During that time, approximately 2000 people went through the station,  most of them on their way to work.
After about four minutes, a  middle-aged man noticed that there was a musician playing. He slowed his  pace and stopped for a few seconds, and then he hurried on to meet his  schedule. About four minutes later, the violinist received his  first dollar. A woman threw money in the hat and, without stopping,  continued to walk. At six minutes, a young man leaned against the wall to listen to him, then looked at his watch and started to walk again. At ten minutes, a three-year old boy stopped, but his mother tugged him  along hurriedly. The kid stopped to look at the violinist again, but  the mother pushed hard and the child continued to walk, turning his head  the whole time. This action was repeated by several other children, but  every parent - without exception - forced their children to move on  quickly. At forty-five minutes: The musician played  continuously. Only six people stopped and listened for a short while.  About twenty gave money but continued to walk at their normal pace. The  man collected a total of $32. After one hour: He finished playing and silence took over. No one noticed and no one applauded. There was no recognition at all. No one knew this, but the violinist was Joshua Bell, one of the  greatest musicians in the world. He played one of the most intricate  pieces ever written, with a violin worth $3.5 million dollars. Two days  before, Joshua Bell sold-out a theater in Boston where the seats  averaged $100 each to sit and listen to him play the same music. This is a true story. Joshua Bell, playing incognito in the D.C. Metro  Station, was organized by the Washington Post as part of a social  experiment about perception, taste and people’s priorities. This experiment raised several questions: In a common-place environment, at an inappropriate hour, do we perceive beauty? If so, do we stop to appreciate it? Do we recognize talent in an unexpected context? One possible conclusion reached from this experiment could be this: If we do not have a moment to stop and listen to one of the best  musicians in the world, playing some of the finest music ever written,  with one of the most beautiful instruments ever made… How many other things are we missing as we rush through life?” Video :  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=myq8upzJDJc
holy shit… so many chills
