Today’s Pie: ‘presidential’ cherry Crust was perfect; the blend of light, flaky and tender to which we’ve grown accustomed. It was also ‘shiny’; the Pie Master had washed it in egg white to give it a glazed appearance. Also of note was the prodigious size of the crenelated ridge; discernibly greater than normal, which was […]

Pardon the Delays

Jaded Monkey is currently going through some transitional difficulties, and is looking for a digital stick with which to beat cyberspace into proper behavior. Until then, here’s a fellow in a greater state of discomfiture than me. Tattoo by O. Henry [no… not really]

Today’s pie: apple Crust was extraordinary; not sure as to the reason, but the color, texture and flavor of this pie shell were all superlative. Apples were wine-sap from the farm; they had a slight stay in cryo, but suffered no ill-effects from the condition. The flavor was strong (brought out ever more with the […]

Culturally Deprived

I used to feel bad for Lucy that she doesn’t have the exposure to the media (tv, movies, music, etc…) that I’ve spent the better part of my life immersing myself in. But it occurs to me now that when Our Miss Brooks is on the radio, and I try to share with the fact […]

Today’s pie: Piña Colada Crust was perfect; wonderful flavor, excellent texture. The cheese base was creamy and light. It had a sweetness that was uncharacteristic of the Pie Master’s usual mixture, lacking the mild tartness that accompanies the citrus or strawberry cheese pies… but that was a good thing. A very subtle hint of rum […]

Teavana and Serenity

Posted: 2nd February 2012 by affehaus in cultural, design, geek stuff

I think the Teavana people are using subliminal advertising to appeal to persons of mercenary nature. I can’t help but notice a similarity between the Teavana logo and Jayne Cobb w/ cunning hat. I have been informed that I am unique in that regard, however.   But, really? The only thing that’s really missing is […]

The Inevitable Crush of Time

I was at the grocery store for the purposes of purchasing toilet paper (the reasons for which I was at the store getting toilet paper are interesting enough in themselves, and would consume more space than I am willing to devote to this particular incident), and as I grabbed the $1.39 generic 4-pack, this little […]

Television… You Have a Problem

Posted: 1st February 2012 by affehaus in cultural, design, tv

and the first step to recovery is admitting that you have a problem. Over at Vulture, they’ve compiled a Venn Diagram of reality shows (and thereby showing that there’s only 3 degrees of separation between “cake” and “swamp”). It’s not your imagination — there really are that many reality shows about swamps, weddings, Louisiana, and […]
