apparently cheese theft is booming, what with it being so expensive and all.

...and so darned delicious. Will Wendy join us today?

hi glenn, Artie, Katya!
Didn't know people stole so much cheese. I do know people have been known to stuff big cuts of meat into their coats.
Thanks for the links, Katya, will try to check!
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 11:50am Michael:

Hi charlie, katya, glenn and artie. Everyone in the Northeast ready for snowpacalypse tomorrow and Saturday?

Hi Michael,
Yes I am ready to dig dig dig! Will probably have the day off from woik.
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 11:53am Michael:

May have off tomorrow too or they'd send us home early. "non-essential personnel" that is. Don't wanna dig dig dig tho.

Hello Charlie and assorted rabble!

after this show i'll be buying cheese and chili fixin's for the weekend siege. only question is what protein to go with: lotsa beans, turkey, or beef. all have their virtues.

Er, I meant "Jon".
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:02pm glenn:

will it be snowmageddon or snowpocalypse?

@S.A. from S.F.: Yep, I saw that episode, too. Tied them neatly in a knot of contradictions.

Hiya Charlie and every body. Boy, Miriam is a real hep cat!
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:03pm listener james from westwood:

@glenn: no, hadn't heard of this lot. will they be part of that compound glenn beck is planning to build, i wonder, or just an allied principality, contacted only via carrier pigeon?
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:03pm S.A. from S.F.:

When I make chili, I always like to throw in a ham hock and a piece of baker's chocolate.
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:04pm kat330:

Of course every ideology enacted will inevitably involve contradictions. C'est la vie.

if these communities go full-tilt lord of the flies, stewart could title the story "compound fracture."
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:07pm kat330:

I think it's a foregone conclusion there would be Lord of the Flies incidents should they ever get off the ground and running.

joyce - you're the most!
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:08pm S.A. from S.F.:

Which musician would y'all like to prepare chili for you? My vote would be for Screamin' Jay Hawkins.
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:08pm ndbob:

I'd say all of the above James
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:09pm Charlie:

Hi there, Frenchee! (So was that your record?)
Howdy there, Mr. Mitchell!

heya gary!
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:10pm kat330:

It appears we are escaping the Snowmageddon here. Today, in fact, we'll near 60 degrees and it's beautifully sunny. Still I'm making later one of my fave winter meal: Curry chicken with apples, onions, and brown rice.

Arf arf, Charlie.
@James, I always felt for Piggy in LotFs.

Chicken with sumac over here.
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:12pm S.A. from S.F.:

It's raining in California, and I'm having udon noodles in homemade beef broth, with pork loin and mushrooms.
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:12pm kat330:

@Brian: Apparently a distant relative was in a Super Bowl ad (didn't see the game but saw the commercial fallout the next day).
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:13pm listener james from westwood:

i was glad to have been past a certain age before reading lotfs. not that i haven't subsequently gotten a laugh over the simpsons spoof of the situation.
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:13pm Brian in UK:

Is this a group of Sannayasas that have lost their way to the party?
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:14pm Charlie:

Delicious, kat!
We've got chili in the freezer, and I made soup the other day -- root veggies, white beans, rosemary, and pasta.
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:14pm kat330:

Hey, Bob! It really is delish. It's supposed to have raisins, too, but Philo doesn't like them, so I substitute dried apricot bits. Then it's garnished with lightly ground peanuts and scallions. Of course I add about twice the curry rec'd in the original recipe.
  Thu. 2/7/13 12:14pm Tower:

Hello there Charlie, Gary, Bob and all the Psychedelic alien listeners, from whichever galaxy you come.
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:14pm Brian in UK:

@kat you gotta pay your utility bills.

Hello Tower.

chili musician? gotta go with neko case.
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:15pm S.A. from S.F.:

So much delicious-sounding food...
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:16pm kat330:

@Brian: Aw, you'd have to use the dirty word "utilities" wouldn't ya? I spent 40 mins. this morning tangling with AT&T over yet another landline service increase. It is now averaging $1.50 per call for our measured service given how little we use it.
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:16pm Brian in UK:

Better red than dead.
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:16pm Carmichael:

Zeta Reticuli is where my space age pad is.
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:16pm ndbob:

@kat I agree with Philo - not a raisin fan - and double curry is my kind of thing
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:17pm Charlie:

raisin d'etre
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:18pm glenn:

what's with the raisin hate? y'all are just a bunch of raisists.
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:18pm Brian in UK:

Well sorry kat, wash my mouth out with Beyonce's aftershave.
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:18pm kat330:

@ndbob: Well, I mean they get super soft and moist after all the cooking, so I don't get it. If we have grapes on hand, I'll throw those in, and he's fine with it.
  Thu. 2/7/13 12:19pm Tower:

@Carmichal Oooh, a nice southern neighborhood!
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:19pm S.A. from S.F.:

Golden raisins have a lighter flavor.
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:19pm ndbob:

@kat I remember my mom telling me that when I was two all I would consume were raisins and milk - lifetime burnout maybe
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:20pm kat330:

Speak of the devil, Philo just showed up but has to run back. Sorry, Charlie! :)
  Thu. 2/7/13 12:20pm frenchee:

Heya Chaz, I replied to you on FB. Alas, no, not my rekkid.
  Thu. 2/7/13 12:20pm Tower:

...and binary too!
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:21pm Charlie:

I thought you were kidding that you wanted it back, Frenchee ;)
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:21pm kat330:

I want the executives of AT&T to live in one of those compounds.
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:22pm listener james from westwood:

i like raisins in some contexts but not in others. cookies, or out of the box, yes; cinnamon buns, cakes, or bread pudding, no. i fully accept that that is weird.
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:22pm kat330:

I was just able to scroll back and see all the enormously witty puns on raisins. :) Thanks!
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:23pm ndbob:

the psychedelic aliens cd is great!
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:24pm kat330:

I can handle his raisin evasion, but his disgust with mushrooms is nearly a kitchen killer for me. He's lucky I love him so dearly. ;)
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:24pm glenn:

just tell them you're cancelling your service, kat. they'll give you a better price.
  Thu. 2/7/13 12:25pm Doug S.:

Sitting here waiting at the dentist. Wish I could listen. Loud.
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:25pm ndbob:

@kat It's a texture thing - I love the flavor of mushrooms, but not the texture
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:26pm S.A. from S.F.:

@ndbob - That's how I am about cauliflower.
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:27pm Brian in UK:

Why is there marzipan?
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:28pm S.A. from S.F.:

The same reason there are village idiots, Brian.
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:28pm Michael:

Mushrooms and raisins can both be sent into space. There, I said it.
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:30pm glenn:

the place i grew up was so small that the village idiot only worked part-time.
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:30pm Brian in UK:

Yeah S.A. I also put chocolate in chili.
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:31pm kat330:

@glenn: [sorry, I was detained] Oh, yes, I've already played that card, clearly one too many times. When I do the autopay and the automaton says "let me look that up," it keeps on tinkling/beeping for many many seconds going through my "history." I must be used as a training tool for new CSRs.
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:32pm S.A. from S.F.:

My apartment is so small the the village idiot is a hunchbacked mouse.
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:32pm kat330:

@Michael: Awww, you and Philo should cook meals together, and I'll cook for the 'shroom crowd. :)
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:33pm Charlie:

Hi Doug, if you're still here. Yes, I wish you were listening too!
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:33pm kat330:

Charlie, groovin' on these grooves.
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:34pm S.A. from S.F.:

Yay -- kat is cooking for me!
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:35pm listener james from westwood:

s.a., was this hunchbacked mouse found under a british car park?
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:36pm kat330:

Oooh, and I love cauliflower, too. Really, it's only coconut, almonds and lamb (along with other musky/gamey meat that I'll never try) that are problems for me. Oh, and cilantro, though I've learned to abide it.
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:37pm S.A. from S.F.:

Indeed, james, with a scroll that read, "It's a fair cop."
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:38pm Brian in UK:

kat do you mean coriander?
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:39pm glenn:

hmmm. kamikaze's playlist has got a game theme going on as well.
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:39pm ndbob:

@kat agree about cilantro - i do like coriander tho
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:40pm S.A. from S.F.:

Coriander is the seed form of cilantro.
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:40pm glenn:

kat doesn't like coriander? please tell her she's officially dead to me.
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:41pm glenn:

it's interchangeable. at least here it is.

@Carmichael: My space timeshare is on Gliese 581g.
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:42pm listener james from westwood:

"looking for a space" is a suitably titled tune to accompany this copyediting.
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:42pm ndbob:

@S.A hmm there's no accounting for my taste then:)
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:42pm kat330:

@glenn: I like and use coriander ground and seeds. I do not like the soapy flavor of fresh cilantro. First time I had authentic salsa out in L.A., I told the waiter someone had not properly rinsed out the serving bowl after washing it. ;)
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:43pm ndbob:

@kat you have accounted for my taste then
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:44pm glenn:

lotsa people think it tastes like soap. i personally don't get that. then again, i don't carry the "stinky asparagus pee" gene.
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:45pm kat330:

This playlist is very useful info for when we've finished the FS compound, and I pull kitchen duty for all the gang.
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:45pm S.A. from S.F.:

There may be a genetic reason for some people tasting cilantro as "soapy", and others not -- just as there is a genetic reason for some people not being able to digest cow's milk.
  Thu. 2/7/13 12:46pm Tower:

But kat, that doesn't exist, wink, wink. At least not officially.
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:46pm ndbob:

@glenn I carry it
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 12:47pm kat330:

Yep, verified that it is genetic. I didn't know about the asparagus pee stank being selective though. Philo and I share that, though it won't stop me from fixing asparagus.

Great one from Mary Wells--you can tell this was written by Smokey, Mary Wells was almost a female translation of his voice and inflections.

Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 1:33pm listener james from westwood:

exposure to the elements or unembalmed burial would be my two choices. for the latter, iirc there's a cemetery in south jersey that specializes in these. there are also wicker coffins one can use, so you won't be walling off a segment of the earth with a subterranean concrete tomb.
next option would be cremation and scattering on some ice to prevent slippage.
Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 1:33pm kat330:

@Katya & Perri: Don't know about you gals, but I keep my hair long because then it's easier for me to maintain on my own, along with giving me variety of roping around and pinning up, etc. Haven't been to a hair salon pro since I was 16, and imagine I never will at this point.

Avatar Thu. 2/7/13 1:36pm Matt from Springfield:

@UM: I heard the Replacements one is remarkably awful--for being a doco on a rock group, that manages to feature no archival performances or interviews of said group. Is that the truth?

Interesting Wiki factoid re: Tim Schmit: "Schmit also toured with Jimmy Buffett, in 1983, 1984, and 1985 as a member of the Coral Reefer Band. Schmit was the one who coined the term "Parrotheads" to describe Buffett's fans".
