The definition of  food porn 

One of the great American arts, which varies from being a triumph to being a disaster, is the art of sandwichmaking. First, the all-important foundation. You must have good, firm bread and sweet butter. Next, the filling. This should be fresh, tasty, pleasing to the palate and above all, of an elegant but not excessive sufficiency, for an overstuffed sandwich is vulgar, messy, and difficult to eat. It doesn’t matter if the filling is nothing more than peanut butter and jelly.

-James Beard, in Beard on Food, 1974

Fantastic short film project from French student Corentin Charron that plays up the joys of a classic French meal, even in space.

One of my favorite shots from my trip to the States. Location: unimportant. 

One of my favorite shots from my trip to the States. Location: unimportant. 

Following its resounding success in New York, Melbourne, Toronto, and Los Angeles, “Tim Burton” -  the itinerant exhibition tracing the eccentric filmmaker’s enchantingly macabre universe from past to present– has made its final stop in Paris at the illustrious Cinémathèque Française. 
There’s no mistaking the very personal, childhood demons in Tim Burton’s work – his dynamic stories and atmospheric films reflect a playful darkness that are unique to his somewhat marginalized upbringing in Burbank, California. Edward Scissorhands, Alice in Wonderland, and Sweeney Todd are all universally recognizable characters from Burton’s brooding imagination but few have been exposed to his other work, composed largely of pop art and zealous sketches from his days as a student at the California Institute of Art. 
Widely regarded as “the seventh art”, film has always held a hallowed role in French culture and Burton’s subversive style and gothic leanings have long been lauded by French moviegoers and critics. Through August 5, 2012, visitors have access to over 700 drawings, photographs, costumes, figurines and film artifacts, many on display for the first time, in addition to a comprehensive film retrospective including limited-distribution shorts and extracts from his forthcoming projects. 
After discovering the exhibit organized by New York’s Museum of Modern Art in 2009, Serge Toubiana, director of the museum which hosts one of the world’s most extensive film archives, was intent on bringing it to Europe. He explained, “I had the pleasure of convincing our friends at the MoMA to accept continuing the exhibition’s itinerary all the way to Paris. The decisive element was the enthusiastic agreement of Tim Burton”.
