Today is July 11th. That means it’s 7-11. And that means it’s free Slurpee day. It is also supposed to get up 99 degrees in Denver today, so the timing couldn’t be better.

Death metal + incredible dessert recipes = The Black Oven – immaculate confections succumbed to northern darkness. With recipes like “Where the Chocolate Beats Incessant”, “Le Petit Gateau du Les Legions Noire -Traditional cupcakes inspired by untraditional black metal”, and “Frostbitten Molasses Cookies Entombed with Ginger” this promises to be the best black metal cooking site on the web.
I’m pretty sure lemon curd doesn’t exist in Norway. However, if by some miracle Odin had bestowed upon the snow beaten north the gift of citrus, the vikings would have probably made these. Buried beneath the mountains of frost…are cookies! These are best enjoyed while basking in the self-righteousness of your own obscurity.
Don’t stop there. The Breadmaster Strikes!!!!!!!!!! comes in a close second when it comes to baking in hallowed depths of hellfire. SeitanWörshipper does a pretty good dark metal/food blog (from Finland of course) too.
There is are naturally occurring stimulants theobromine and methylxanthine compounds found in cocoa beans will cause vomiting, heart problems, seizures and death in dogs. Despite it’s morbid premise this amazing National Geographic infographic will tell you exactly how much chocolate it takes to kill your dog. Other foods to keep Fido and Spot away from include:
Alcohol – Alcohol depresses brain function in dogs and can send them into a coma. It can cause further damage by turning their blood acidic.
Onion – An onions damage to canine hemoglobin is cumulative, so small tastes over time can be worse than wolfing down the whole bulb. It will eventually cause anemia.
Grapes – Toxicologists have found that grapes and raisins can cause acute renal and kidney failure. As few as ten raisins or grapes, anywhere from nine ounces (255 grams) to two pounds (0.9 kilograms), could be fatal.
Macadamia Nuts – Experts have yet to determine why just a few of these nuts can produce tremors, even temporary paralysis, in a dog’s hind legs.
Garlic – Dogs don’t have the necessary enzyme to properly breakdown the compound thiosulphate so garlic, in any form, breaks down a dog’s red blood cells, and large amounts over time can lead to anemia and possible kidney failure from leaking hemoglobin.
Coffee – The caffeine in a cup of java is a methylxanthine compound that binds to receptors on cell surfaces, precluding the normal compounds from attaching there.
Bread – Like alcohol, ingestion of yeast can cause fatal damage. Active yeast found in raw bread dough releases alcohol as it grows.
Uli Westphal presents us with a strange, and incredibly large, photographic collection of mutated fruits, roots and vegetables. The artist thinks these photos addresses the extent to which we control and shape the appearance of nature through lawfully enforced standards and commercial selection. I think they’re interesting to look at as an archive of biological diversity.
