Back Story. My Godmother was Lebanese and at parties at her house we always had kibbeh nayah. Raw lamb chopped finely with spices and bulgar wheat. Drizzled with olive oil and served with slivers of raw onion, it was tucked in triangles of pita bread and there were never any leftovers. I haven't had any since she passed away many years ago.

A friend told me that there was a new Lebanese place in town so I went. I figured they would have the baked kibbeh and a few other things and that would be nice. I peruse the menu and there under the meze… Kibbeh nayah. The waiter, a young man, looks at me when I order. "You do know it's.. raw?" he sez. Oh yes. That's the one I want. He tells me that he wishes that they had a bell on the wall so they could ring it every time someone ordered it. "It's The Real Thing." You can hear the capital letters. The place is small. About 15 seats. And I pull out my book to wait for my meal. Suddenly the music gets louder and people are murmuring. I look up to see my waiter in a bright blue desert robe dancing his way over to my table. He smiles as he places the dish in front of me and tells me to enjoy. He stops at another table on the way back to explain what I ordered and says again: "It's The Real Thing!"

And it was.

Yes, I am a Cumberbatch fan. I watched a few of these vids from the Letters festival, and really enjoyed the way the readers brought the writers alive.
Listen to the Chris and Bessie letters that Benedict and Loo Brealy read. Listen to both of their voices.
Listen and watch the change in voice and body language when Ben reads a reply to a fan from Iggy Pop.
Watch a third change here, and LISTEN to the message Kurt Vonnegut sent to someone who burned his books.

Stolen from Tumblr:


it’s your father’s friendlock. this is the weapon of a livejournalist. not as clumsy or as random as a personal tumblr, but a more elegant weapon for a more civilized age. for years, the livejournalists were the guardians of idiotic blog drama and fandom pornography in the galaxy. before the dark times, before tumblr

Do not play this where anyone can hear, but not see what you are watching.
I wouldn't be drinking anything either.
