commented on The Woman on the Waterfront
I agree that the title and creepy-old-man context seem ill considered (Why not just call it "Nuria" !?!), but, at the same time, when I first saw it I felt a sort of guiltily tribal pride in seeing a recognizably Asian face blown up to monumental proportions in the Americas.
Still, I guess it does carry a lot of signifier baggage, and really sort of resembles an Easter Island Moai. Hopefully not a sign we'll all slowly starve to death?

That poor "chefd" ! Seriously, though, in the arts and high dining, don't bite the sweaty gouty hand that feeds. It's something that could easily be addressed if they came back (unlikely, now) rather than in an unprofessional social media rant.
Also, as an aside, fancy non-alcoholic drinks tend to be groooooooss concoctions of lavender and sage grass.
