still want to make my canadiana indie darling heist film about liberating the manitou stone from the royal alberta museum.

a few years back there were talks about finally repatriating the stone to local indigenous peoples, looks like instead they decided to give it a Very Special Exhibit in the new museum building. it's a pretty good microcosm of modern empire: we're still gonna enslave you and pillage everything you hold sacred, but it's going to be SO RESPECTFUL this time!

News from home:
Canada police arrest five naked people after 'bizarre' car crash

NISKU, Alta. — Mounties say kidnapping charges are pending in a bizarre case just south of Edmonton involving a two-vehicle collision and suspects who were not wearing any clothes.

Investigators say a man, a woman and an infant were forced from a home in Leduc County into a vehicle Monday against their will.

While the car was being driven, the man, who was in the trunk, managed to escape.

The woman and her baby then managed to get away.

The three were then picked up by a passerby in a truck, which was then rammed by another vehicle and ended up in a ditch.

RCMP then arrested five suspects, a man, two women and two female youths, who were all naked when they were taken into custody.

"Of the five subjects arrested, three adults remain in police custody," Mounties said Tuesday in a release.

"Two of the subjects arrested were youths, and have been released with no charges."

Police did not say why the suspects were not wearing clothes or which vehicles they were in.

Police say the three people forced into the vehicle were not injured.

Investigators say the suspects and the three people know each other.

eating myself to death tonight https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/23834/fettuccine-alfredo-v/print/?recipeType=Recipe&servings=4&isMetric=false like i actually don't feel good, it was too much fat
#353
that's the best alfredo *pats bellie* fuckin, add caramelized onions and roasted pepper. the gf found a discount ball of proscuitto so you fry a bit o dat, grate the garlic w/ a microplane for ultra garlic. i'm drinking water like crazy and can feel my heartbeat?? also used spinach fettuccine, trying it out, $2/lb, kind of pricey. be prepared to eat whatever quantity you make. what's diabetes but for too much butter?

i made carbonara the other night, another classic artery screamer. italian is probably the simplest and easiest "luxury" cuisine, great stuff. might make putanesca next week (resisting urge to make a bhpn joke)
#355
nice... carbonara was on the schedule for tomorrow but i might just fast... this is my recipe:

Spaghetti Alla Carbonara

1 lb. spaghetti

2 tbsp. olive oil
1/4 lb. pancetta, or proscuitto, or bacon, or nothing (decreasing order of quality)
3 cloves garlic, minced

2 eggs
1/4 lb. pecorino or parmesan cheese (approx. 1 cup grated)

italian parsley, for garnish
black pepper


Heat olive oil in a pan on medium-high, add pancetta. Boil water for the spaghetti. (If using pre-made, begin cooking spaghetti.) After pancetta has rendered its fat and begun to brown, add garlic, and saute until soft. (If using fresh pasta, start cooking it now).

Mix eggs and cheese in a bowl. Stir until well combined.

Remove pasta from water, drain. Add to bacon and garlic, toss to combine.

Remove from heat. (This is important so you don't scramble the eggs) Stir in cheese/egg mixture until coated. Add plenty of black pepper. Garnish with parsley. Serve immediately.

#356
that looks good. i use half an onion in mine and 5 cloves garlic, minced and fried down to almost nothing so it doesn't interfere with the intended simple texture of the sauce, and a little heavy cream with the eggs instead of some of the cheese to really let the black pepper stand on its own. usually i fry everything so hard that i need to use a little cooking wine to deglaze part way through so as not to burn it. it ain't carbonara if it's not nearly carbonized!

this week we also had some leftover fresh asparagus that needed to be used so I threw that in near the end just long enough to sear a bit, a betrayal of the simplicity of the dish but it was delicious.

there's a great little italy in town here for good pancetta but it's too pricey for me to use outside special occasions so I just use cheap bacon and imho for carbonara it barely makes a difference, especially with the brute force way i make it. save the nice cuts for the more delicate dishes.

it's really depressing me lately how all public discourse is people acting like children online and taking themselves/others seriously

like it's an international news item that x person posted a screenshot of 2 years ago when one kid called them a bad word on twitter, or some identity group that they aren't a member of was once potentially slighted. i am losing my fucking mind. if everything that everyone, everywhere has to be treated like a royal proclamation and political action, we live in a world where public discourse is essentially held hostage by any given 14 year old on twitter. not even all the 14 year olds collectively, it only takes one.

i feel like i am beginning to be unable to participate in normal society or know what normal society even is. it's just me and the few people i talk to. soon enough i am going to start petting an imaginary cat.

i've been reading Berger & Luckmann's The Social Construction of Reality and it sure got me thinking. about drinking

been on a bender, nothing too bad but dealing with moving twice in two months, skimming the surface of debt, new job, new city, closer to family and the responsibilities that come with it. overall, still feel pretty good about leaving where i left. and feeling pretty good about this Ketel One hitting my tim-tum.
