A Gnollish Meal and Discussion with J. Stanton

Yes, there was the interview. That was the morning after these photos, that Beatrice snapped candidly over dinner. I myself was so absorbed, that I didn’t even know about them until I updated her computer shit this afternoon and found them on her iPhone.

  1. Vaginas? Huh? What?

    I am out of the loop.

  2. PS: I want to come to one of your dinner parties. And you are hereby invited to one of mine. Or many.

  3. I’d love to see you do another (long, please!) video interview w/J. Stanton, and break it up into a series of posts.

    But that’s just me. :-)

  4. Hell…I think you should see if Denise Minger will be in the Bay area anytime soon, and interview her, too!

  5. Yawn

    You do get the feeling of a wonderful atmosphere of food, wine and great conversation. Glad we could eavesdrop and enjoy – the photos tell the story. Thanks to Bea for taking the pics so those of us who live in distant lands get the full sense of the occasion. Also wish there could be more video, even if this broken up into smaller clips.

  7. J. smokes?
    How fucking cool is that. As a smoker myself, I’d love to hear his thoughts on smoking in respect to paleo. In the vain of paleo, I switched to American Spirits about a year ago as they’re all natural, no additives.

    • > J. Smokes?

      Only for hormesis. :-)

    • It was after dinner cigars with port wine,, to be clear. At that time of night, about 9-10, only thing open was the mini mart and all they had were those mini cigar thingies.

    • “J. smokes?”

      Only cigars — and only on special occasions where a cigar is appropriate.

      I see an important distinction between the ceremonial use of intoxicants, practiced by many ancestral cultures, vs. the frequent use of intoxicants to either get you through the day (e.g. coffee, cigarettes) or help you forget it (e.g. alcohol). The first is paleo: the second is what you do when you’ve been dispossessed or enslaved by agriculturalists.

    Hi Richard, I have been reading a recent article in Gnolls.org and cannot view the comments. Are you able to view them? or are they closed for public viewing?

    • Pauline:

      Do the comments not show up after the article text when you’re reading an article on its own page? (It should look like every other WordPress website.) I haven’t heard of this happening before…please contact me through the Contact link and let me know exactly what you’re seeing (or not seeing).

      And yes, the comments are also shown as forum threads…but you shouldn’t have to sign in to read them (or even to post them) via either method. Again, please contact me and let me know what’s happening.


      • Pauline says:

        Hi there, sent you message through contact link – I can view article but comments are ‘off’, can only view the comments on forum thread. Has this anything to do with internet use in the UK?

  9. Pauline says:

    My first impulse is I dislike joining anything officially and if I have to sign in everytime I want to read comments that will be enough to turn me away.

  10. Pauline says:

    Found the where the comment threads are. Richard I must say that your blog has always been sweet in terms of easy to read and view comments all in one place. Must be one of the many reasons that we all keep rolling in like the tide…
