for one week, i decided to sumbit myself to exploring the textures and tastes of this little pony riding lolita. On some days, she satisfied my every ache on others she left me so destitute i physically reached out in front of my face desperate for a taste. She was heartless, she was sweet, she was bitter and cruel. Ultimately, i decided that my relationship with her had as much to do with what went in as it did with what ...

came out. So be forwarned now, my documentation shows no discretion. I found my poops to be the most exciting part of this experience! I devised the above rating system, a 1 to 5 toilet scale. Poops will be rated in terms of notability and will appear in chronological order. As a final note, in rereading the rules i realize I was lax in one respect and quite unnecessarilly orthodox in another. On one hand I picked and chose my days irrespective of the order of the spectrum, I also treated water as a clear substance and hence a violation on any day! Welcome to my journey ...

Morning: presorted Froot Loops with rice milk ... the loops magically turn my milk blue!!! 4 Blueberry Fruit strip bars cup of water stained with rain Gatorade notes: sugar wore off in one hour, hunger returned 10 fold

Lunch: cottage cheese soaked in “rain” flavored Gatorade + blueberries Blueberries 2 boxes+ blue tortilla chips Notes: did not finish Gatorade and cottage cheese due to gag reflex when ½ way through Put it in the fridge for night (and by night tied it in a bag and put it in the trash) Hunger persists


dinner.jpg

dinner.jpg

Dinner: BUBBLEGUM ICE CREAM (minus all but the one blue colored gumball!) large bag of blue peanut M&M’s Many cups of water stained with rain Gatorade 2 blue machine smoothies. Notes: my strategy for protein today was to sneak in some peanuts stowed a way in a fun candy shell which melts in your mouth not in your hands starting to feel bodily cravings for real food, physically catching myself reaching for food I know I am not allowed to eat


latenightsnack.jpg

Desparate Late Night Mission: Blue Porridge allocated from Koreana Market one more stained water Notes: the blue porridge when rung up said “gruel” in the screen of the register, and was not nearly as blue as it looked on the package. Upon ringing it up, the receipt got stuck in the machine and the lady said something in Korean curtly under her breath. I repeated it back and asked what it meant, she apologized so flush with embarrassment she couldn’t look me in the eye.

Dinner: 1 bowl of butternut squash soup 2 slices of cantaloupe 1 cup apple juice Notes: dinner at my moms (hence the table cloth), she thought my “diet” was stupid and urged me to do something more productive with my creative mind than eat foods that would produce “off color” discussions at the dinner table (no pun (by her) intended).

Morning: presorted Froot Loops 2 waters stained with welches grape soda notes: spent the morning cooking a chile I’ve made many a time, which is strangely purple


IMG_4320.JPG

IMG_4320.JPG

black beans and coconut milk is, I think, the culprit. but This time, I substituted tomato puree with tomato juice......

ORANGE!!!! i even tried pouring in the last of my grape soda (a true tongue stainer) ... no luck!


fuck this chille.JPG

fuck this chille (as i side note, i did eat it later, it did eventually turn purple (fuck!) and the grape was a nice hint)


lunch.jpg

lunch.jpg

Lunch: 1 box of black berries 1 purple cabbage 1 water stained with vitamin water a bunch of Kalmattas more kalmattas a beet salad 2 purple superfoods by Odwalla notes: this may look like a lot of food.... but i was hungry all day.... Ate lunch with Maze Designer, and asked the lady at this bougie Middle Eastern place if they had anything purple on the menu. Ideally, this interaction would’ve gone down without my explaining sf0 to her. This time, I wasn’t so brave, I immediately blurted out what I was doing, ruining the human oddity factor. I had more Kalmattas (maze designer ate the green olives, which ive crossed out here with an x) and a beet salad. I hate beets. My dad hated beets, and my grandfather before him hates beets. Fuck a beet.


IMG_4340.JPG

IMG_4340.JPG

Notes: Getting very hungry. Walking around the open market in Emeryville,, finding nothing purple, just bought an eggplant dish out of reflex. I totally knew i couldnt eat 95 percent of it! Aside from the skins it was predominantly brown. The lady shook a little bit of this purple spice on it before handing it to me. Wow! Fortuitous, I desperately covered the meal with it. When I got back to my car to eat, I came to my senses.


IMG_4342.JPG

IMG_4342.JPG

. I had to understand, I had to accept, I could not eat the majority of his meal. It was not purple. I picked out the purple eggplant skins and ate a bit of the purple spice covered rest. pictured here is the fucking rest, which i couldnt fucking eat. i rushed to go buy more kalmatas


latenightsnack.jpg

latenightsnack.jpg

This particular container tasted awful. I wasn’t just sick of olives, I think these were bad. While gulping them down painfully yet hungrily Tapesonten said, “put that shit away man, it smells like diarrhea”. It was true. But I kept painfully popping them, one by one into my mouth. We went to fosters. Things got a little better for me. I got the triple berry shake. I felt a little better.


purplepoo.jpg

purplepoo.jpg

this was without question my most notable shit! better than the half half, as it SMELLED DEAD ON OF GRAPE SODA! i didnt even have but more than half a container... but maybe it had something to do with the way the soda was dilluted with water.

greenbrek.jpg

Morning: presorted Froot Loops 2 waters stained with “rain” Gatorade 2 vegan food supplement (tastes like pond scum but is part of my typical routine) 1 avocado 1 bowl of grapes and left over veggies from my ma’s Chinese food box


lunch.jpg

Lunch: 1 green machine superfood 1 bog ol box of pesto pasta salad a la Genova delicatessen (removed red bell pepper and mushrooms) 1 more dietary pond scum supplement 1 more water stained with rain Gatorade 5 sticks of celery

Dinner: 1 green apple left over green veggies from red Thai curry Left over salad from sauteed eggplant calamity 6 pickles


greenpoo.jpg

greenpoo.jpg

now, everyone has experienced a green poo. One might ask, why did i give it such a high rating. I guess its just, I was glad to have managed to squeeze it in there (pun intended) before the night ended, to feel in a sense, that the cycle was now complete..... thanks for reading my story. -spotlight

Well done and quite the creative presentation, I must say! The play-by-play commentary is great!

awesome. really detailed with excellent supplemental information provided via the turds. would vote if i had any votes. i must note however, that for all your fussing about drinking the right color water, i noticed milk in your fruit loops! though... it probably gets dyed by the cereal and just doesn't contrast well in the photos.

yep. i addressed that in the first froot loops day, which dyed my rice milk blue.
i didnt bother to note it the other days, but it did dye the milk. albeit quite slightly for somedays like yellow for example.

your poop rating scale is off the charts of inventiveness (surely, in the near future, we will find a way to extend its application to other tasks as well), but i am equally impressed by your truly original spellings of the word diarrhea.

please don't ever bring kalamatas into my apartment again.

beautiful. i'm glad you addresses the poop issue. personally, that was the thing that i thought was most intriguing about this task. have you heard of the artist sophie calle? i think i may have told you about her-- -she did this a few years ago as a piece, documented it (no poop) and published it in her book. i think she did pink and black, too. at the end she held a huge banquet dinner for her friends-- each seat at the table was a different color meal. beautiful.

ya! i love your pictures with all the editing of items removed and added. plus the poop addition is great - i really wanted to take pictures of my poop while doing this task but was too chicken.

i also like the pictures of you giving the finger to food you couldn't eat - it sucks so bad when you make something and then it's the wrong color and you're so fucking hungry and you just can't eat it!

posted by spotlight skullshines on July 22nd, 2006 1:25 PM

so your poop was brilliant also?!?!
it feels kinda expected when you eat all artificially colored blue stuff one day, but i still cant get over how, eating only green made it green, or same for red. those two were kinda shockers. any thoughts?

yes my poop was brilliant, but mostly as time went on like it was cumulative. i think the last day was so crazy because the last days were green-blue-purple and purple day i literally ate a shitload of beets. the red-orange-yellow end of the spectrum was more 'normal' looking but definitely tinted sometimes.

i didn't really expect the diet to affect the color that much either!
