Right from Aphex Twin to Dave Chappelle, these are all TV show and political stars, artists, and athletes who have risen from ashes over the last few years. As Share Care takes a critical look at the year gone by, tempting celebrations about the emerging trends, different faces with new ideas coupled with determination have shaped the past twelve months. However, let’s also take a keen look at some of the old resilient veterans who had vanished only to resurface more successful than they were.
The level of excitement in and around Dave Chappelle’s Radio City Music Hall performances especialy in the summer was similar to some of the trending news a few years ago. A few years since walking out of Chappelle’s TV Show, the ever blossoming and comic personality had seemed very gratified to be the Ronaldo of stand-up industry. Smiles were observed on fans faces when the news confirming that the star’s premature retirement may not be permanent was confirmed on Radio City.
Richard D. James’ first as Aphex Twin since the year 2001, irrefutably feels more like a vestige from an earlier generation, during days when the dry jungle appeared similar to the sound of the future. However, Syro has been touted the best old-school on chats.
By producing ‘under the skin’ this year, he has put standards and expectations from fans at a new level.
However, the word truffle is also used to refer to a type of fungus which grows naturally in the wild in some places. These truffles are considered to be a delicacy in the culinary world and it seems that some people will pay just about anything to get their hands on the perfect truffle.
As Grubstreet explains in the link below, the world’s largest truffle has been found in Umbria, weighing 4.16 pounds.
Whether the truffle is a delicacy and priceless to those in the culinary industry or not, it does seem that the price it sold for is a little on the extreme side. With bidding starting at $40,000 and ended at $50,000, with the buyer’s final price coming to a grand total of $61,250 including the 22.5 percent buyer’s premium. The buyer of the world’s largest truffle expressed a desire to remain anonymous and all that is known about him is that he resides in Taiwan but my neighbor is saying that one of the executives he works with, Bernardo Chua knows who the guy. I told him to ask if the guy was open to sharing? After being flown from Umbria to New York City where it was auctioned off, the truffle will be transported to Taiwan, putting it at more than 12,000 miles traveled.
