The Dark Underbelly of Prague


I suppose what I saw of what Alex calls the "dark underbelly of Prague" wasn't quite as dark as what she sees on a more regular basis. In fact, after going through the Fantova kavarna (Fanta's cafe) in the main station, everything was pretty warm and well-lit.

Karla has beat me to it and recorded all the highlights in a richly illustrated account. I wish everyone could've been here to taste the soup and pie. Yummy!! And to top it off we had Black Bear's Blood to drink (Bulgarian wine).

Read And Now We Celebrate: "Jesse was feeling bored in Brno and had acquired soi-disant pumpkins from his tutor, so he promptly invited several people to come dine at my apartment." Of course, I also went because Karla's kitchen is so much more awesome than mine, which made baking a pie actually possible.

Not bad shots of the kavarna, just as I expected. But just because I gave many details of our culinary extravaganza doesn't mean you can't provide your own "very unique" (as some of my kin would say) reportage. (One question, however: are you suggesting that the event was part of the Dark Underbelly of Prague, and if so, do we thank Alex for that, or is it larger than her influence?)

Well I suppose since your kitchen is really 'so much more awesome', then I could write a 'very' unique account. :) I also have no doubt that the darkness and underbelliness of the evening was mostly Alex's influence (though not necessarily her personally...), and the Svankmajer films certainly helped.

Well, I'll let you continue to envision our dinner party as part of the "dark underbelly of Prague" if that pleases you! I can't say it strikes me as having been all that underbelly-like except for the Pit and Pendulum film, which was decidedly Halloween-suitable. Of course, the fact that the lights were off did make the living room rather dark, but then think of all the candles I lit. (Perhaps there will need to be a solstice event with even more candles. Or human sacrifice... well, maybe not the latter. We can save that for the spring fertility ritual at the Three Graces statue. Who should we sacrifice?)
