Comments on a cultural reality between past and future.

This blog describes Metatime in the Posthuman experience, drawn from Sir Isaac Newton's secret work on the future end of times, a tract in which he described Histories of Things to Come. His hidden papers on the occult were auctioned to two private buyers in 1936 at Sotheby's, but were not available for public research until the 1990s.

All Hallows' Eve Countdown: Devil's Horse Cake

Sorry for the slowdown in posts, everyone. There was an unexpected family crisis here. Never fear, there are more posts to come in the last few days leading up to Hallowe'en! The photos of the day go to edible horror from Tattooed Bakers in London, UK. This very sweet monstrosity is a super scary devil horse cake - a red velvet cake body with rum pouring out of its flared nostrils. From i09:
How do you follow up a pony-sized unicorn cake with rainbow filling? If you're the Tattooed Bakers, you don't rest on your equine laurels and instead concoct a demonic rotting horse-shaped confection with liquid rum snot.
Following the unicorn's meadow that was Baketopia, the Tattooed Bakers participated in Feed The Beast 2013, adding this monstrous confection to the festivities. Kraken rum poured from the horse cake's nostrils and into a skull font below. And the cake's interior is red velvet, meaning it looked perfectly gory even as the partygoers dug into its sugary hide.
Head over to Miss Cakehead's blog for more photos of the cake; all of its various gashes look much better photographed up-close than from a distance.
You can see a gallery of other cakes from Tattooed Bakers here. Images from i09 and Eat Your Heart Out.
