My mother-in-law marched in the Pride parade today. She’s not a member of the tribe, but is good friends with a fellow in the Vancouver Men’s Chorus, and volunteers as their bookkeeper. So, they let her march with them. I’ve been told she had a wonderful time; I didn’t go because – while I’m neither snob nor bigot – I don’t enjoy being one of 300,000 crammed along a 2.5 kilometre parade route. I’d much rather walk my dogs in a nice, shady park, which is hopefully devoid of people because they are all lined up along the street straining to beg the oiled-up gentleman to throw them some moisturizer samples.

Much better company than most people.

So I didn’t get up to much today, but I did discover an “artisan ice cream shoppe” in relative proximity to my neighbourhood. I didn’t buy into most of their “origin story”, but that was some fucking good ice cream. Double scoop: Maple Bourbon on the bottom, apple pie on the top, and in a waffle cone. (Being allergic to chocolate sucks donkey balls – half their options come from the demon bean.) The bourbon had actual taste, and paired well with the sweetness of the maple. And they assured me they make actual apple pies to fold into the ice cream. Whatever – just make sure the milk is fresh & the cone has gluten.

Oh, and in case you missed it, the cat meows in Miami.


Tonight’s sports:

  • MLB: Dodgers at Mets – 8:00PM | ESPN / TSN
  • MLS: Sporting Kansas City vs. Atlanta United FC – 8:00 PM | FS1 / TSN2

Holiday Monday tomorrow. HOW WILL I CHOO-CHOO CHOOSE TO RELAX?

I drove round trip 4 hours to be at a party for… 4 hours. Could’ve stayed longer, but I can’t bypass symmetry.

I would say this is a mistake. It has its flaws but a great series. Insanely huge list of characters you have to remember, so probably not a binge watch. Watch an ep or 2, if you think you missed something watch that ep/scene again.

Inanimate Carbon Rod Marinelli

Eh. I’m not sure I have the interest. The show has never really appealed to me.

I guess all this prestige TV has become a little cliche to me. “Oh look, tits and fucking and violence and screwed up people doing screwed up things.” At a certain point it becomes derivative.

Inanimate Carbon Rod Marinelli
Member

Okay, I’ll concede I really enjoyed one of these shows: Boss with Kelsey Grammar was mayor of Chicago was pretty good in that captured the spirit of the city and wasn’t *too* over the top. I was deeply disappointed it only ran two seasons.

Semi-related: Fuck the American version of House of Cards.

They don’t still have those on networks? Do they still have networks?

Without TV and with all my adblockers and shitty disposition I have no fucking clue what TV or movies people watch for the most part.

Inanimate Carbon Rod Marinelli

Network TV is mostly sports, cheap as fuck unscripted reality shows, and a few sitcoms. It’s all the light lagers of TV.

Scandal, Empire, and Nashville (White People Empire)

Nah, that’s not entirely true. I mean, in the last year there’s been American Gods, Taboo, GoT, Leftovers, The Americans, Fargo, Westworld …

Huh. I think you’re onto something.

Sopranos, Six Feet Under, Deadwood, Rome, SoA, Rescue Me, Breaking Bad, Shield, Wire…

I finally started watching season 2 of Rome. I like the series, but I imagine it must’ve been a frustrating watch live.

Jerry Was A Shogun Named Marcus

It wasn’t bad. It was worse how they “ended” it. Rome, Carnivale, and of course Deadwood were all robbed of a proper end. They just kinda did. Rome and Deadwood because money, Carnivale because ratings.

Unsurprised
Member
Unsurprised

It blows my mind that they’re still going on about making a Deadwood movie ten years after the fact. I can’t see any good coming from making that.

I loved (LOVED) Carnivale. I’ll still be waiting for a third season when the entire cast is dead.

Inanimate Carbon Rod Marinelli

I do remember watching and really like The Shield.

Duchess

there is a scene right before that

[Devoe phones Kodoroff, who is driving a truck loaded with stolen nuclear warheads] You watched CNN during Desert Storm. You remember all those television shots from the nose cone of the GBU missiles slammin’ into those trucks? Remember that picture? How it kept gettin’ closer and bigger on the screen… You’d just about see the faces of those drivers and then… Zap! The picture went dead, we didn’t get to see what happened next. Well guess what, Alek? You will.

Today was one of those hot kitchen, hot skillet everything cooks fast kind of days. Next week I’m bringing back Sunday Gravy with a motherfucking vengeance.

Now I’m ready for Game of Thrones and a bottle of red.

litre_cola
Member

What kinda red?

yeah right
Member

I’ve got a blend that’s 80% shiraz and 20% petite verdot. It’s quite delicious.
I’m a fan of the shiraz syrah grape.

litre_cola
Member

Dad in law cracked my fave syrah from le vieux pin here in BC. French style and as close as you can get to Rhone without the snootyness. Sadly only available here so i usually buy a few.

yeah right
Member

We had a central valley vineyard that did a great syrah but I’m pretty certain I drank them dry. Finding a new one has been a challenge so I enjoy when I encounter one.

Inanimate Carbon Rod Marinelli
Member

Now that I have a functional kitchen, I’m going to have to try some of your recipes. (The easier ones at least.) You’ve tagged them all I hope?

yeah right
Member

Yep.
The one going up next week is quick and easy and could be done by anyone.
I would advise waiting until your apartment is cooler than 80 degrees though.
