Options June 16, 2018: Sardine: The Unchovy
The Inflatable Squirrel Carcass proudly brings you another exquisite corpse, or, in this case, an exquisite course in marketing and brand management. Sardines, superstars in Portugal (they even have stores devoted to them), sit gathering dust on the shelves of America’s retail food markets. Search “sardines in literature” and you find yourself looking at 529,000 results, most of which have nothing to do with literature and everything to do with “Qualitative analysis of sardine and anchovy oscillations and implications for the management of sardine and anchovy fisheries in Oman.” Where is the Flicka or Charlotte of sardines? Why are sardines always portrayed in the can or heading in that direction? Even the cockroach (thank you Franz Kafka) and the rat (thank you Michael Jackson) have been used effectively to describe life and love. But the sardine? Nothing but an easy metaphor for subway passengers during rush hour. Well we, and when I say “we” I mean nine other DJs and myself, have set out to right this glaring wrong. How? Let us begin by sharing the fruit of knowledge and enjoy that which the gods fear most: “Think sardine, be sardine.”

I can afford them and enjoy sardines with crackers or over rice for lunch occasionally.
People with large brains such as GK Chesterton thought sardines were a big deal.
Others disdain these little fish but I love them, and recently found out they're good for me.
NOT the fake mackerel sardines, the real kind. Which I hope is what I've been eating?
This show has my full attention!

I heart sardines, and use anchovies probably at least once week, and that's not when I'm making puttanesca sauce!

Joan Miro drops a reference to sardines in “Catalan Landscape (The Hunter)” www.moma.org...

More specifically, “There's the sea in the background, an eye, an egg-shaped sun… The Catalan peasant has become a triangle with an ear, eye, pipe… And the man's heart, entrails and sexual organs. I've shown the Toulouse-Rabat airplane on the left: it used to fly past once a week. In the painting I showed it by a propeller, a ladder, and the French and Catalan flags. You can see the Paris-Barcelona axis again… A sea and one boat in the distance, and, in the very foreground, a sardine with a tail and whiskers gobbling up a fly… A broiler waiting for the rabbit, flames and pimento on the right.” www.washingtonpost.com...

thank you tamar for filling in

Chresti and I had an appetizer plate of giant sardines at a, well Sardinian restaurant in San Francisco. I thought "Great, I 'm going to replicate this when we get home" That was my first mistake. After locating the sardines at a Chinese supermarket, I set upon my folly. I'm no Nervous Nelly when it come to guts, but these things really tested me. What a mess! Worth the bother? Not in again in this lifetime.

How sardines get put into cans. Don’t show your kids the head chopping off part! youtu.be...
  Sat. 6/16/18 12:47am rich:

franco you have to get them cleaned then there's a really good dish we had in venice that involves sardines, golden raisins, onions, and vinegar (which tastes much better than it reads) that's not too difficult to make

pardon the interruption there i hit the youtube connection in the comments by mistake

Rich, I know that now, but been the let's make a mess in the kitchen guy that I am, I could not resist. There are times to resist. It's better for every one involved.

Exquisite Carcass, Rich!

Just reading more on Miro. Dude liked potatoes too: ‘Once, in the 1920s, the poet Paul Eluard spoke with warmth about the solar orbs he had detected floating in the painted sky of one of Miro's paintings. He went on in that vein until the painter stopped him cold: "That is not a solar system," he said. "It is a potato."’ www.washingtonpost.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/16/18 1:19am coelacanth∅:

so i'm going with the story that Tamar did author that and isn't happy with it, which she should be, in my opinion.
...anyway the whole piece is Brilliant. Thank you and good night.
  Sat. 6/16/18 1:21am rich:

sardines, potatoes, pimentos, what's not to like?
  Sat. 6/16/18 1:44am Fashion Tashjian:

I think we can confirm that there's a correlation between FMU fandom and the consumption of small canned or jarred fishes. While we're a landlocked country here, god bless the soviet influence and our sustaining desire to consume Riga sprats (Baltic smoked sardines).

I want to see that chainsaw version of American Woman performed live. With the chains intact. Maybe some large chunks of wood too.
