So some of you are probably wondering, "what happened to the food on this blog?" Settling into San Francisco has been a bit of a chore, so I've been reduced to scarfing down meals consisting of canned beans and quick vegan mac & cheese. Once things slow down, I'll be able to get back to what I love most, cooking.
In the meantime, I've had lots of time to think about random things while riding my bike through town. One such random thought was that of committed threesomes. No, not the wham bam, thank you ma'am variety, but actual long-term relationships. The photobook "Three" by Howard Roffman chronicles the lives of such a threesome, who happen to be Americans living in London. Getting a couple to work is hard enough. I don't know how these guys do it.
There's a Greg Araki movie, Splendor, that deals with another threesome configuration.
Totally unlike his previous nihilistic work, I liked it a lot more than I expected. If any of you out there have been in a long-term relationship even remotely similar to the above, tell me about it!
This just in! From my friend BigheadBen (his site contains some sexual content. If that isn't your cup of tea, don't click the link!):
"There is a great book called When We Were Three about a decade-long 3 way, sort of, between publisher Monroe Wheeler, author Glenway Wescott, and photographer George Platt Lynnes in 1920-30 Paris, NY. Chock full of photos of some really hot boys. and Gertrude Stein..."
