This is the second time this week I’ve put Heavy Whipping Cream into my recipes to substitute for milk and have been rewarded with an orgasmic tasting experience. So I ask this simple question…is Heavy Whipping Cream the new milk? Will I ever use Half and Half again? Is it better than sex?
No Yes Absolutely
For me, milk and half and half still have their place…but I am quite intrigued buy the other culinary possibilities of this strange new fat delivery device. Expect more results as the experiments commence. Until then…here are the following dishes where HWC is superior to milk in every way.
The more I watch Kaiju films, the more I really want to try and get a Kaiju Film Festival up and running. Not necessarily on a huge level, hell, I’ll even settle for my friends piling over my house and watching a bunch of them with me while we drink bear and eat pizza or something.
But, I really want to enjoy these movies with someone other than myself, I need someone else to talk about them with. I must share the ludicrousness of the “giant octopus” ending of FRANKENSTEIN VS BARAGON (which on further investigation is only in the American release, not the original intended ending.) Someone else must suffer through the intolerably kiddy REBRITH OF MOTHRA series.
Sadly…I don’t know if I can get anyone behind this idea. If it were a plain old GODZILLA movie, sure, that’s not a problem. Everybody loves GODZILLA. But what about RODAN, or WAR OF THE GARGANTUAS, or SPACE AMEOBA?
It’s times like this that dating doesn’t seem like a bad idea…assuming I can find a female who enjoys Japanese dudes running around in massive rubber suits and wailing on each other. I don’t know…perhaps the fact that this blog is being monitored by two of my friends will provoke some kind of favorable response to a KAIJU-THON *hint hint*
At any rate…just updated my Netflix queue. Coming to me on Wednesday: KING KONG ESCAPES!!! Wooo!! Mechano Kong lives!!
Ugh…good god, why the hell did they gear this series towards kids?? It had so much potential to be completely badass.
I mean…let’s face it, before these movies came out Mothra was kinda lame.
The concept was awesome, but all the stories were the same— Mothra’s Egg/Twins get kidnapped and Mothra gets pissed OR Godzilla/Ghidora threatens mankind and Mothra has to fight him— and he really didn’t seem like that much of a threat to anyone. I mean…for godssakes he was a giant Moth…he flew around, crashed into things and occasionally spread pixie dust all over the place. And yet somehow he managed to save the day. It never really made much sense.
Then these beauties came along. Oh man…Mothra is so much more powerful in these movies. He actually does things!! He has lightning, he can shoot lasers…apparently…he can split up into several tiny moths to swarm an opponent, and he can assume different Mothra forms! I mean…damn…that’s badass!
But…NOOOOOOOOOOO Toho just had to make it a Kid-centric movie series and ruin the whole thing.
The ending battles to these two movies are pretty great and are almost worth the rest of the garbage you have to sit through to get to them…almost.
The kid stuff is just so annoying. Not even Gamera the Brave was this bad, in fact, it was actually quite tolerable in comparison.
Then there’s the whole environmental message thing…which just seems tacked onto the endings. Even then, it doesn’t make much sense. In the first one, after the forests are destroyed by DesGhidorah the adults are standing around saying “look what we did to the earth…we should be more earth conscious.” Umm…do you not remember the giant three-headed dragon that burned down half of rural Japan with it’s fire breath??? And in the second one, you see one or two pieces of trash floating in the water and that’s supposed to equate to the ocean is being polluted to such an extent that a water monster is brought back to life, feeding off the pollution to become more powerful. Yeah…uh-huh, whatever.
It’s quite a shame really, I was really looking forward to Mothra getting a chance to shine. I mean, his debut film is cool and all, but all he really does is trash a city by himself and doesn’t really get much action otherwise.
And yet…these movies get a lot of butt love in the fandom. But I guess that’s how the internet works…people cling to the oddest things and obsess over them for no apparent reason and beat it to death and then some. When you think about it, the internet is the new HOT TOPIC.
Oh, HOT TOPIC and your whiny, stupid, teenage customers (and I can say this because I was at one point a whiny, stupid, teenage HOT TOPIC customer)…you just about ruined Invader Zim for me…and came damn close to doing the same with Nightmare Before Christmas…
The internet is doing similar things with…oh, EVERY GODDAMN TV SHOW, VIDEO GAME, SHITTY ASS ANIME, BLAH BLAH, WHATEVER, IN EXISTENCE!! I swear to god…I love Community and 30 Rock as much as the next person but if I have to see another photoset of animated gifs on the subject about how awesome they are blood is going to start shooting out of my ears.
Anyways…where was I going with this? Oh yeah…just like anything else on the internet…leave the judgment for yourself. Just because people have a massive hard-on for something doesn’t make it the best fucking thing in the universe. These movies can only be considered good if you jam newly sharpened pencils in your eyeballs and ears for the first 80 minutes.
-3 large eggs
-3 tbs heavy whipping cream
-fresh ground pepper
-1 tsp butter
Melt butter in a medium sized skillet low-med heat. Turn to coat bottom.
Meanwhile, whisk eggs and whipping cream in a small bowl.
Once butter starts to foam add the egg mixture. DO NOT STIR. Let sit for a minute to let bottom start to cook.
Season with salt, pepper, and paprika.
Using a rubber spatula, gently fold eggs, DO NOT WHISK. Use slow movements to go under the egg, lift, and set aside to let the liquid separate and cook.
Just when it looks like the liquid is almost gone (this can be tricky, I usually go by what looks to be 2 tsp) remove from pan to plate. Eggs will look under cooked, but don’t worry, they will continue to cook on the plate.
Serve with coffee, toast, and bacon for the best home-cooked breakfast you will ever eat.
The first half of the evening was spent cooking an elaborate—albiet delicious—dinner, and the other half was spent listening to the new Eisbrecher album on YouTube and randomly scouring the internet for numerous unrelated subject matter.
The latest update for Motorola phones came out recently…or was it android? I don’t know, all I know is some kind of massive software update came out and now my phone is all kinds of messed up, and thus far I haven’t found any satisfactory answers as to what’s going on…and more upsettingly, anyone else who’s having these issues.
The main problem is the view is totally borked. It’s vertical most of the time, but apparently the camera function is stuck in horizontal mode. And no matter what mode I’m in, turning it doesn’t change views…no matter what. Not for texting, not for Browser, not for typing, nothing. It’s infuriating!!
I guess I have to hope for the massive switch to Ice Cream Sandwich, which is supposedly coming for my phone. I don’t know when though…and apparently they have already started work on the NEXT update after ICS…wtf???
Ugh…not to sound like an old person but sometimes I think it was easier when I didn’t have a phone that was smarter than me.
Guh…got chores that need to get done, but I’m tired as hell and my right arm is dead from shooting all day. Looks like it’ll be a mad dash to get all of it done, PLUS grocery shopping tomorrow before my friends come over for D&D.
Still…a small price to pay to remain single and live alone.
Picking a new CD is hard for me…I go through an elaborate process of deciding what kind of music I want—as I have a very eclectic taste—do I want electronic this time? Folk? Indie? Metal? CRock? Alternative? Musical? Sountrack?
But even when I DO decide on a sound, I then have to go through the usual suspects of bands and then put them through the “sell out” filter. Sadly…most fail.
However, on occasion, I come across an anomaly, something I can’t quite tell if I like or not. Take this morning for example…I decided I am in need of a new metal CD, when going to the “Metal” section of iTunes, up pops Lacuna Coil’s new album.
Now, I like Lacuna Coil…I don’t love them, but I like them. They have some solid songs on their repertoire.
Listening to their new album…I’m not sure what to think. It sounds like old Lacuna Coil guitars…but the structure of their songs are more pop-y…its that weird in-between space that throws me for a loop…it’s like “the uncanny valley” for my ears. It’s something I recognize…but there’s something that just doesn’t sound right about it.
At least the new In This Moment album was straightforward…they went back to screaming…which the lead singer is terrible at, she was far stronger as a melodic singer…and easy pass on my behalf.
I dunno, maybe I’ll just go somewhere I know is safe, Evergrey and Dark Tranquility.
I’m not cut out to be a sports fan…I take things too personally and even worse, I take things too logically, particularly: talking shit about the other team.
I just don’t get the art of talking shit about other peoples teams. It doesn’t make much sense to me.
My team starts to lose, and then all of the sudden, the other team’s fans start saying how my team sucks, and how we’re shit and whatnot.
First of all…ouch! Where did that come from? Do I know you sir? Why are you screaming at me about how my team is a group of homosexuals that engage in oral sex?
But more importantly, and puzzling to me is when this occurs when a team is doing extremely well.
Back before the Red Sox finally won a World Series, I would hear “YANKEES SUCK” all the time — as I live in New England. I still hear it actually. But what puzzled me back then was hearing this when only recently hearing how the Yankees won the World Series for the third year in a row. Doesn’t that mean they are damn good, and the exact opposite of the definition of sucking?
Earlier this Week, I would read Facebook statuses about Bruins fans saying how it “hurts to lose to the Rangers” and all I can think is…The Rangers are one point away from number one in the league, so why would it hurt to be beaten by a league leader?
And tonight…the Rangers…let’s face it, are playing horridly and are getting trounced by the Blackhawks. All of a sudden, Blackhawks fans come out of the wood work and start invading the Tumblr hashtags talking shit on Rangers fans. Again I am puzzled, we are a league leader…and the Blackhawks are 13th with a 9 game losing streak under their belts.
None of this makes any sense to me. I just don’t understand such a rabid and ignorant loyalty to a team.
Hell, up until this year I openly admitted the New York Rangers were horrible. The past few years were a mess of non-existent third period offense, tripping at the finish line, and injuries.
I dunno…I guess I really am a nerd at heart. I’m better off collecting Transformers than watching sports…it’s less harsh on my delicate and sensitive disposition…Michael Bay infuriations aside
