Neil Gaiman

    There’s something cathartically profound in the absolute desecration of one’s physical body and surroundings in order to feed the mental hunger to complete a superior book.

Urban Food

    Imagine chomping away at a delicious bowl of fast-food from a well known fast-food chain, and suddenly biting into something a little more ’meaty’ than your meal should contain.
