White chocolate with menstrual blood in it…huh…I guess that the amount of menstrual blood a normal person would loose would be a few mls, right? I reckon that if it was about that much, and you didn’t mix it in too much, then there’d be a nice amount of red in it and it would be fine, but I wonder…
It’s normal for you to mix in your blood and spit in the honmei choco, right????????? Oh???????
I mix in menstrual blood with my honmei choco every year.
If I get my period on Valentine’s day, then I can put my secret ingredient in.
Please gods. Please send me my period on the day I make my Valentine’s chocolates.
One of those girls who quietly mixes her own spit into the Valentine’s chocolates.
If I’m making Valentine’s chocolates, I want to put my own blood in them.
樋口 結慈:
My suggestion to those people who are trying to mix their blood into hand-made chocolates for Valentine’s day is frozen raspberries (framboises). They look like dried, congealed blood, and because more than anything they have a tart taste, they’ll make people think that it’s blood.
It’s Valentine’s in just two weeks’ time. All you virgins who’ve never received chocolates probably don’t know about this, but in hand-made chocolates from girls, at the very least, there’ll be blood and spit, and hair that has been ground finely in a mixer. Since these are hand-made from the heart, please be sure to eat them alone in secret ♥︎
If you want to put something of your own into honmei choco for Valentine’s day, I think that it’s actually best not to put hair, or pubic hair, or blood that you’ve got through the normal way, but rather to put those chunks of liver things that you get when you’re on your period!!! I mean, menstrual blood is the lining of your uterus, so doesn’t it excite you to think of him putting that in his mouth? What’s more, because it’s hard, he’ll never find out! Magnificent!
I’ve got a mental illness, so I’m going to get some blood from my nose and put that into my Valentine’s chocolates _人人人人人人人_ >  NOSE BLOOD  <  ̄Y^Y^Y^Y^Y^Y^Y ̄
I always put raw chocolate in my Valentine’s chocolates, but I’m putting in blood as well.
Yey, Valentine’s!! What’s everyone going to make?! I’m going to cut my wrists and put loads of blood in.
If someone mentally ill made the chocolate, then there will definitely be something weird mixed in with it, and anyway, there’s no point in hand-making chocolates and not putting something unusual in. If a girl’s nails have become short, then that’s not because they were making snacks, it’s because they’re mixing them in with the snacks. Also, if they have more cuts, periods, or stuff like that, then it’s definitely black. Well, not black, but blood.
Everyone frustrated because they can’t get any menstrual blood to put in the chocolate because of their menstrual cycle.
Putting your own blood in the Valentine’s chocolate you’re going to give to the boy you like — isn’t that pretty much the norm for us girls?
The spell we had when we were in elementary school was that you’d put your own blood and drip the tears you’d cried at the though of the one you loved into the handmade chocolate, or that you’d knit your own hair into the scarf you made for them — these terrifying things were popular and we did them without a care. I never actually did it, but there are probably witches in every period of history #Valentine’s
Were there ever any girls who didn’t put their own menstrual blood in the Valentine’s chocolate?
I have a friend who’s been traumatised ever since he realised that there was hair inside a Valentine’s chocolate he had already put in his mouth. Guess it’s better than blood, but the poor guy!
They say it’s a Valentine’s spell and stuff, and it seems that they put hair and spit and stuff in there…do they just want to hurt the person they love? Don’t they realise that someone’s going to eat it?
I saw a tweet that said, if you’re putting something in handmade chocolate, then I recommend blood. Because at least blood has some umami. And now the heart palpitations won’t stop.
王 妃:
Huh? You thought that Valentine’s chocolates didn’t have bodily fluids, blood, or hair in them? Valentine’s Day is when AIDS gets transmitted the most.
Valentine’s is scary wwwwwwwwwwwww Like there’d be spit or blood in the chocolate ~wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww glad I don’t have to worry about that wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww ain’t no one gonna give me any (^.^)
Just felt a shiver go down my spine at the premonition of there being girls who hand chocoloate with nails or blood or spit in it to the boy they like on Valentine’s.
It’s too frightening to put your own blood or hair in Valentine’s chocolates…but seems like there are quite a few people who do…they put spit and stuff…DISGUSTING…
The thing about Valentine’s chocolates is that you’re happy if you get handmade chocolates from someone you’re close to, but if you get handmade chocolates from someone you’re not close to, then it’s scary. You start getting anxious that there might even be poison in them w.
Just thought this, but when girls are making Valentine’s chocolates and stuff, they mix it with a spoon, and then they lick the spoon, so won’t the chocolate you get have at least a little bit of spit mixed in with it?
I’m a bit frightened of handmade chocolate. What am I scared of? — Well, before one actor ate the handmade chocolate sent to him by a fan, he broke it in half and a load of pubes fell out. I’m scared of that kind of thing happening.
If you mix blood into Valentine’s chocolate then your love will be reciprocated…so scary (-_-;) Still, back in the day, I got some cookies on Valentine’s day, and there were loads of tiny hairs in them…Wonder if that was the same thing…?

"Farewell best beloved, here at last I shall rest with thee, with thee in Christ I shall rise again."

This is me speaking as Kunal, and not as Babycastles - which is now many people, many who have never been to or even know much of 285 Kent.

285 Kent did exactly what it planned to do, and it makes complete sense that it is closing now, or at least, passing hands.

285 Kent was originally a joint project at least by myself & Syed Salahuddin (loosely as Babycastles independent video games collective), and "Todd Patrick" to make a lot of money over three years by running a popular illegal bar in very favorable conditions: drastic upvaluing of the area, very low rent on a large space, and one more piece that I should be careful not to disclose, but whose timeline is evidently expired one year early. The amount of money we projected to take in was around $300,000, but it could've easily been half a million, I wouldn't know. The idea was Todd's, but he called us in to partner in January 2011, with a tentative loose 50/50 expense and income situation until an ownership changeover in August, at which point we'd been talking 30% us, 40% him, and 30% other investors, in a full on short-term (illegal) "business".

The money was the core mission of the 285 Kent project, and it is important money, which is why we took on the project. $100,000 - $150,000 of money would've largely accelerated Babycastles services in New York, and I'm sure $120K - $200K would've been a meaningful amount to Todd Patrick's services to New York City.

Babycastles was forced to exit conversations about a partnership when sudden maneuvering by our partner [ Todd Patrick ] left us with only a 10% stake in the project, both robbing our initial year of good faith investment and moving almost all of the resulting $300,000+ into Todd Patrick's hands. We never participated in this business, which we don't even know if was ever created.

On one hand, it was a bummer that a last second moment of greed by one party [ Todd Patrick ] obstructed the 285 kent project, because I believe that both projects are actually substantial cornerstones to New York City's independent arts conversation, and if the plan continued, both would have received substantial funding in the intermediate year. I think the initial partnership made sense, at least on paper, so I regret that we never saw it.

As it is, though, Babycastles has had the opportunity to organize instead around long-term sustainable fundraising model, and have opened up a memberships program for our upcoming Babycastles Gallery in Downtown Brooklyn in 2014 here! It's ultimately been refreshing to be have focused our efforts on developing a diversity of community, individual, foundation, government, and other fundraising mechanisms that will build Babycastles future in a much more relevant path in the upcoming years, than to have wrestled for a few years with maximizing a short-term illegal bar that create more legal and social antagonization than the amount of money is worth :) Phew!

Anyway, one thing that's cool about "DIY" is that it proposes culture that expects the audience, artists, writers, staff, and ever more to somewhat equally participate in what the space really becomes and what it stands for - you all pitch in and define what your home is in our square - which is why you get all these wonderful cultural narratives right now about 285Kent in a handful of magazines, even about a pretty short term business compared to handful of more long-standing explicitly cultural institutions like even Market Hotel, Silent Barn, Death By Audio, whatever Trans Pico becomes. That narrative is a nice little collage of what all you decided to make out of what is otherwise a pretty simple piece of profitable real estate.

A dangerous thing about "DIY", though, is that it is easily exploited on the same basis. You want to be careful about that. You want to all think about where the money moves around in the picture, and you want to consider if you as the community at large agree with money. It's a shifty business, so you have to make sure to identify when people in "DIY" new york get caught here and there directly lying about money. It's something we all have to do, as part of building a community participatory world, to make sure that we keep the siphoners out, because it's just so easy for any crafty and machiavellian person to siphon all of the value right out of our hard work. One, that's a direct insult to all of you, but two, they can use that value against you.
