The Restoration

You may have noticed my archives are mostly photo-less. That’s because I accidentally deleted all of my pictures a few months ago when cleaning out my .mac folder. All of the pictures hosted on .mac were instantly gone which is basically every picture I took before May 28, 2005 (when I started using Flickr). So now I’m beginning The Restoration: I’m tracking down each picture on disc (I backed everything up), I’m uploading them to Flickr, and then re-embedding them into the old posts. What that means is that when I’m done all of my archives will be fully restored with pictures. In the meantime, because it’s mentioned in the NYT story, I’ve restored my Janet Jackson breast cupcake post. Now you can see what all the fuss was about–especially appropriate today on Super Bowl Sunday. While you’re watching the game, I’ll be working away. Hope I finish before the next Superbowl. Best, Adam.



  1. hi i’ve been dying to know what a mega-ton bar ice cream is forever and in one of your blogs you said you had a mega-ton ice cream/gelato maker (in The Fountain of Youth: Ice Cream at Bruster’s) could you please tell me what a mega-ton bar ice cream is and could you post up a pic of it too? thanks

  2. Aint technology grand AG? Hang in there and good luck with the Restoration – we’re all counting on you (no pressure). Cheers.

  3. Yay! I was looking up the ‘almond cake to save your soul’ (or something to that effect?) recipe, and thought there was something wrong with my computer. And not to be crude, but that’s quite a tasty rack you’ve got there.

  4. If you want to make the archives better, you should make it so you don’t have to click on each individual story to read them. That’s super annoying (before you implemented that I used to like to read through the archives when I wanted to waste some time, but that’s pretty much impossible now — or at least more trouble than it’s worth).

  5. This is great. I discovered your blog just recently, so this is my first time seeing the pics for this post. I am also looking forward to the pictures for your “Condoleezza Rice Pudding with Berries of Mass Destruction” post…
