sometimes it’s too easy to walk away, at other times it’s too difficult.
for the toxic, invested relationships we find ourselves in, it takes the strength & courage & the unimaginable to move on away from it. this song is about that, and i hope we all find what we are looking for while realizing our self-worth, and a brighter road lies just ahead. we can.
feb 2nd [add-on]: did you love it or hate it? what a game, especially from a non-avid football game watcher! the ads however were mostly disappointing — some being a complete waste of good money. definitely enjoyed the viagra fiat and the mercedes [tortoise + hare] commercials the most. halftime show: missy elliot, awesome as usual. katy perry, vox on point but wardrobe? 1st hot wheels gear should be illegal, 2nd [slightly better] transformed her into a hot dog on a stick girl jumping on lemons for fresh lemonade. the later outfits were bearable. the shooting star made the show seem like it was for little children at disneyland.
the dogpiles, awesome. the big fightclub near the end of the game made me bit nervous but so entertaining.
i’ve been rolling around seductively filthily in the snow. but i was also inspired by the recent craigslist ads in search of blizzard boyfriends + girlfriends for the deemed-to-be “historic” blizzard, so i wrote a new [silly] song yesterday & shot an impromptu video in the cold, no jackets involved. let me know if you hate it or love it.

the worst thing is to accidentally delete a perfectly fine post on one of my favorite japanese restaurants in the city. how, why did it happen. i blame word press. let’s start the new year right by correcting what was wrong with 2014 – the mysterious case of the missing soto blog post.
anyhey, please enjoy [again], this fabulous 2-michelin starred bundle of joy. they are creative with their dishes yet maintain a sense of traditional feel to it. don’t come here if you just want fresh fish over rice balls. nope. also, be prepared to be in shocking bright lighting as it is basically broad daylight here — [perfect for foodies & obnoxious photo-taking] therefore nice, casual dress is acceptable.
b&w tofu: sesame & soy
smoked trout carpaccio, caviar, watercress
hey flukes. don’t be so sad.
shredded surf clam prepared like a lil tiki house
one of my faves:
uni on sweet raw ebi shrimp
tuna tartare: chopped asian pear, tuna, pine nuts, marinated seaweed
toro tartare & caviar.
chopped kanpachi, wasabi tobiko wrapped in marble soy paper + soy mousse
third favorite dish…
uni, caviar, snow crab, uni gel wrapped in lotus root
grilled langoustine. call me maybe.
