How to eat sushi

jkottke:

I wasn’t expecting too much of this video about how to eat sushi, but it’s actually pretty good. It features Naomichi Yasuda of the highly regard Sushi Yasuda in Manhattan making sushi for a newbie and telling him how it should be eaten.

This Old House + Jiro Dreams of Sushi = this video.

Chapbook Prize update

pubgen:

On July 31 we received the last of the Toll Prize chapbook entries. There are some beauties in there! Now the committee has divvied up all the submissions and is reading them blindly. This Sunday, we are going to meet and discuss our selections, then choose a winner, the book that we feel best…

7 Life-Learnings from 7 Years of Brain Pickings, Illustrated
Allow yourself the uncomfortable luxury of changing your mind.
Do nothing out of guilt, or for prestige, status, money or approval alone.
Be generous with your time and your resources and with giving credit and, especially, with your words.
Build pockets of stillness into your life.
Maya Angelou famously said, ‘When people tell you who they are, believe them’. But even more importantly, when people try to tell you who you are, don’t believe them.
Presence is far more intricate and rewarding an art than productivity. As Annie Dillard memorably put it, “how we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.”
Debbie Millman captures our modern predicament beautifully: “Expect anything worthwhile to take a long time.”
