Miscellany (X)

1. Planet Dandy is on the move. Through some weird sequence of associations we arrived at the George Carlin quote:

"A house is just a pile of stuff with a cover on it"

By the way, Happy 70th, George!

2. Classic American cartoons illustrating the Communist Manifesto. Who'd a' thunk?

3. I'm in the middle of Jack Black's You Can't Win. I'll turn in my book report when I'm finished.

4. Happy mothers Day, you mothers.

5. Adrian Belew has some choice anecdotes up at his "Elephant Blog" (Dylan, Paul Simon, Zappa)

6. Today's recipe is for garbanzos. Three small onions, chopped on the fine side, go into a big hot frying pan with some olive oil in it. Add a couple of bay leaves and a few garlic cloves, diced. When the onions are on the point of browning, add three cans of rinsed garbanzos. Then add chicken stock. Some red pepper flakes maybe. Season. You can stir it some. On another burner quickly brown some sausage pieces and some chicken. Set it aside. Finally, after a bit, place the chicken and the sausage into the garbanzos. From this point on, don't stir. Just let it simmer away on low heat. Keep an eye on it, don't let it dry out. Add more stock or water if you must, but don't stir.

grave

This photo is from once upon a time in Paris. It's not the Pere Lachaise cemetery (where Jim Morrison, Chopin, Oscar Wilde, etc. are buried- it's the Montparasse cemetery, where I had gone to see Serge Gainsbourg's grave). I need to scan it, but an interesting contrast would be a tombstone I photographed between Mancelona and Alden some time back. Engraved in it are a guitar and a truck!.
