When you tryna go home and your moms still talking to friends
Star Slinger | IV
Hopping to this great 4-track EP this evening from UK’s Star Slinger. From the bandcamp description:
I wanted to edit 4 of my favourite divas on the run up to my NYE in Chicago as a thank you to the fans for their continued support. Each edit was crafted lovingly hours before the release while the artwork by Michaela Selmani tells the same story. She made a sexy tablet portrait of each diva on the record & I think they all complement the tracks superbly. We are thinking of releasing them as prints.
All in all, it’s a great 15 minutes. I particularly like II, the Erykah Badu edit. (Others include Anita Baker, Sade, and Ella Fitzgerald). Pick it up! It’s free.
The Catherine Palace in Wintertime, Tsarskoe Selo, Russia.
The best part is that it was a cop calling 911
Makes 1 mugful
2 tablespoons loose leaf rose tea
1 cup hot boiling water
1/2 cup milk of your choice (today I used 2% milk)
Sweetener of your choice (today I used agave nectar)
Put the tea into the french press (or pot) and pour the hot water over it and let this steep for at least 5 minutes, or more if you want it very concentrated. Press the strainer down and pour the tea into a mug. Meanwhile, warm up the milk until frothy. Add the milk to the tea and stir in your sweetener (if you’d like). Drink!
