Studio Ghibli Film Festival in NYC!

I may or may not be planning my trip to visit family in New Jersey this year around this festival...

The film center, East Village Cinema (map) will be hosting 4 Studio Ghibli films on the big screen each weekend in August!

I wish they were playing Kiki or Totoro, but I'll take Howl any day!

After her mother and father are turned into giant pigs, Chihiro meets the mysterious Haku, who explains that the park is a resort for supernatural beings who need a break from their time spent in the earthly realm, and that she must work there to free herself and her parents. - Wiki ;)

History Continued
And you were 21 years old, you were just leaving childhood. The human brain does not fully develop until age 25. Then the decision-making part of my brain still needed training. There was no one to tell me what to do. You became the number one star in this business. Didn't he have royalties or rights to get some kind of reward for your popularity? None. None at all. In the video of the hijab, the most popular, three young people participate. You were one of them and you wore the Islamic scarf. You had to know how provocative that was. I literally told them that they will kill me. Why didn't you say you weren't going to do it? Intimidation. I was afraid. No one forces you to have sex, but I was still scared. Have you ever felt nervous about saying something in a restaurant when the food is not right and the waiter comes and asks "how is everything"? I was intimidated. Was nervous. You say that the concept of consent makes no sense in the dynamics of power between the men who control the porn industry and a young 21-year-old actress like you. Absolutely. When there are four white producers in the room and you tell them something like that, and everyone laughs, it's devastating and makes you not want to talk or say anything. It is the same when you sign your contract, you know the president and CEO of the company in the room, he is with you waiting for you to read it and when you are reading it you do not understand anything that is written, because you are very nervous, because people make you He is watching. When you left the filming set at the end of that particular movie, did you know deep down that this was going to be a disaster for you? He didn't hit me until the next day, because the adrenaline was still very high. But immediately after its launch, my whole world was shattered. The reason I thought it was good to do porn was because I thought nobody would find out. There are millions of girls who record themselves having sex and do things like that, and nobody knows their names. No one knows who they are. No one recognizes them that way. I wanted to do it as my dirty little secret, but it exploded in my face. Khalifa says he assumes 100% responsibility for having participated in the porn industry, which he considers today to be a mistake. From the point of view of filmmakers and distributors, it was a triumph. They said I was like lightning that fell into a bottle. The reality for you was that your face was known throughout the world as the porn star wearing hijab and suffered threats. Oh yeah. I will not say about EI, because I don't think everyone who is very involved with EI has a Twitter account. They put a picture of me on someone who was beheaded and said ... I don't know exactly what they said. They said something that would be next. I can't imagine how alone you must have felt at that moment, because you couldn't discuss this with your family. No. It was scary. But my mechanism to deal with these things is humor. So my answer was: "Well, as long as you don't cut my tits. They are worth a lot of money." You were 21 years old. Now five years have passed. How much personal responsibility do you assume for what you did? The 100%. I made the decision. Of course the industry is imperfect and we must do something to protect other girls so they don't fall into the same trap as me. But it was my choice. Going out of business when that viral video was so well known and associated with something so provocative, and you received the threats ... Was it a very quick decision for you? I wouldn't say very fast, because I was still nervous. I didn't know how to react to that. In fact, I summoned them all at a meeting a month later and I had a resignation letter for each one and told them about my feelings. They tried to convince me to stay and they told me that all this would happen and that I was safe, that I was exaggerating. Then these guys saw you frankly as a money machine. Absolutely. Do you think you suffer some type of post-traumatic stress from this experience? Yes. And I think it is activated mainly when I go out because I feel that people can see through my clothes and I feel very ashamed and it makes me feel like I have lost all my privacy. Because I am on a Google search. The suicide of porn actress August Ames at the end of 2017 led some female colleagues to protest their situation and the pressures they face. You have no right to delete the images, even if they are deeply personal to you. It is very difficult. It is. This story is your story. But frankly, it's also the story of other porn actors and actresses. Honestly, I started to realize that p agoOco. People started communicating with me. My manager checks emails and when he receives things like that, he filters them and sends them to me. Reading the words of some of these girls who have been trafficked and forced into pornography, all these stories of girls whose lives have been ruined (...) makes me feel that it was good to start talking and to do this interview. Consecutive deaths of 5 porn actresses who set off alarms about the harsh conditions of the adult entertainment industry in the US There is a school of thought that says that in many countries young people are so exposed to pornography that it is changing the way men and women interact. What do you think? Of course it affects relationships. Porn addiction is very frequent. The things that men see in the videos are expected of women in their lives, and that is not the reality. Nobody is going to be so perfect, nobody will do those acts on a Wednesday night. If you could talk to that 21-year-old girl, Mia Khalifa, walking down the street in Florida, stopped by the boy who said, "You are beautiful, lovely. I can work with you," what would you tell her to do today? There is a pepper spray of gas in your bag for a reason. Use it. Run!
Making BabyCakes NYC's Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Sandwich Cookies
Erin McKenna's BabyCakes bakery in New York's Lower East Side is a much beloved destination among the vegan foodie community - so much so that after much demand, she opened yet another similar and completely successful sister bakeries, simply named Erin McKenna's, is both Los Angeles and Orlando. What makes these baked goods so popular? Well, first off, everything in the bakery is vegan - and that's not all! From cupcakes to waffles to even freshly baked doughnuts, Erin makes sure there's something available for every diet or possible allergy, never using refined sugars, gluten/wheat, soy, dairy, or egg. Somehow, magically, they're amazing! Don't believe me? Her cookbook, BabyCakes Covers The Classics, is a continuous bestseller! When I went to BabyCakes NYC for the first time in 2009, I went for the cupcakes, but ended up falling completely in love with their chocolate chip sandwich cookies. They were two large chocolate chip cookies sandwiching candy-colored frosting in a way that was equally light and indulgent. What I love is that, in this aforementioned cookbook, Erin gave fans the recipe for making this at home. She even stopped off on Martha Stewart's television show to demonstrate! Try this out at home, as this is a terrific recipe on its own or used as a base to freestyle with your own different flavors. The frosting for this one will be vanilla, but in the past, BabyCakes has offered ones with mint flavor or peanut butter inside. This recipe makes 36 cookie sandwiches, so even if you steal a bunch for yourself (which you'll want to), there's still plenty to share! ------------------------------------------------------------------------ BabyCakes NYC's Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Sandwich Cookies For the Cookies: 1 cup coconut oil 6 Tablespoons homemade applesauce or store-bought unsweetened applesauce 1 teaspoon salt 2 Tablespoons pure vanilla extract 1 and 1/4 cups evaporated cane juice 2 cups Bob's Red Mill gluten-free all-purpose baking flour 1/4 cup flax meal 1 teaspoon baking sode 1 and 1/2 teaspoons xanthan gum 1 cup vegan chocolate chips For the Frosting: 3/4 cup rice milk or unsweetened soy milk 3/4 cup dry rice milk powder or dry soy milk powder 1 tablespoon coconut flour 1/4 cup agave nectar 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract 1 1/2 cups coconut oil, melted and cooled 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 1. Preheat the oven to 325. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. 2. In a medium bowl, mix together the oil, applesauce, salt, vanilla and cane juice. In another medium bowl, whisk together the flour, flax meal, baking soda and xanthan gum. Using a rubber spatula, carefully add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture and stir until a grainy dough is formed. Gently fold in the chocolate chips just until they are evenly distributed throughout the dough. 3. Using a melon baller, scoop the dough onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing the portions 1 inch apart. Gently press each with the heel of your hand to help them spread. Bake the cookies on the center rack for 15 minutes, rotating the sheets 180 degrees after 9 minutes. The finished cookies will be crisp on the edges and soft in the center. 4. Let the cookies stand on the sheets for 10 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack and cool completely before frosting. 5. In the jar of a blender or bowl of a food processor, combine soy milk, soy powder, coconut flour, agave nectar, and vanilla. Blend ingredients for 2 minutes. With machine running, slowly add oil and lemon juice, alternating between the two until both are fully incorporated. 6. Frost the underside of a cookie and sandwich it with the other. Optionally, roll these cookies in sprinkles or miniature chocolate chips!
