A Kansas couple has been ordered not to contact their daughter until September 2013, after their child took legal action to stop her parents from stalking her. Twenty one-year-old Aubrey Ireland is a standout student at prestigious College-Conservatory of Music at University of Cincinnati, but her leading roles and rousing vocal and dramatic performances are not enough to satisfy her overbearing helicopter parents.

Although Julie and David Ireland live more than 600 miles from their daughter, the couple have made enough unannounced trips to their daughter’s school that administrators hired security guards to ensure the Irelands would not be present at her performances.

The couple are also accused of using digital surveillance tools such as keystroke loggers and on daughter Aubrey’s computer and cell phone, in order to monitor her electronic communication. For their part, the parents claim their daughter is being promiscuous, using drugs, and is mentally unbalanced, according to Cincinnati.com.

Music and theater departments naturally attract a dramatic crowd, but this family takes it to new heights.

Aubrey is a senior who will be finishing her final semester at CCM in the spring. Hopefully after graduation Aubrey’s talents will take her to New York, where she’ll be far from the machinations of her mother and father, and safe within the bosom of Broadway community.  But hey, Manhattan is only an  18-hour, 1,200-mile drive from Kansas. Shall we gas up the truck?

This week’s habit formation is publishing something on Flavorist at least once per day–preferably much more.

It’s going to be a while before we smooth out some of the rough edges, but please bear with us. This is a very special project to me, and I’m at the early stages of putting together a team of excellent and passionate writers whose sole desire is to make your life a little more delicious.

What to expect from Flavorist.

In the most literal sense, this blog is a minimum viable product, or an MVP, to see what works, and what sucks. The longer we keep at it, the more we’ll learn. I’m passionate about relationships, communication, dating, intimacy and society, so expect to see a lot of those topics covered here. I also like beautiful design, mobile phone apps, food, travel, music, clothes and online video. In that way, it might be helpful to think of Flavorist as a salad bowl, where the ingredients change daily, depending on what’s available at the market.

To that end, we’re going to sample the best writing and content on the web, and combine it with our own original reporting, opinion and analysis. I’m beyond excited, and I feel like I’ve been hiding from this opportunity for a long time. This is my passion, and I’m thrilled to share it with you.

Bon Apetit!

Does anyone else see the irony in the elephant being the symbol of the Republican Party?

Elephants live in matriarchal groups where males are excluded except to breed.  They’re herbivores and are known to be highly empathetic to other elephants as well as their dead; if one elephant in the group is in trouble, all the other elephants will pitch in to help it out.  They also practice collective raising of the young, with young elephants being tended to by all members of the herd.

You guys, elephants are socialist vegan feminists who support public education.

It’s also worth mentioning that most elephants are bisexual.

maybe that should change their mascot. Then again, what kind of animal is misogynistic, and constantly fucks over other members of it’s species for a profit besides us?

Cats.
