Nothing stirred, not even the tongue of fire that burned in the streetlamp. It did not even do so much as to flicker.From beneath the shadow of the clouds appeared a man, drifting like the travelers in the black sky. He was shabbily dressed, his hands covered...

Tougher than any critic and superior to any who came before him, Chef Timothy Roth is one of a kind. Although he has a passion for food, he was not a frugal man.

I wake up to the same alarm everyday, put on the same clothes from the day before, and have the same pattern of showering brushing my teeth, and shitting after my prescription drugs and coffee. I have no ambitions and I'm not happy nor depressed about my life, I don't see how the majority of people around believe so hard in something, maybe it's because I can't find anything to believe in.
