In a 2 part haiku
Jude is a damn saint
Sue has gamophobia
Poverty and Death
Sue’s moral anxiety
By Jason Aaron and Jason Latour
Starting Volume 4 tonight. So far, with the exception of Volume 2, it’s been a great series. The Walking Tall homage was interesting if not kind of bland but they definitely flipped the switch on that.
They depict a part of the South that most people sometimes want to hide or just don’t think there’s anything wrong with it. And the ideology of high school football being the be all end all in some towns is something I’ve seen first had.
I love breakfast sandwiches, any kind of sandwich really, but breakfast sandwiches are the best. This is a turkey bacon, egg, and cheese on lightly toasted sourdough bread with blackberry jam.
People are always down on this book because it’s considered lewd and pulpy for the time and Faulkner wrote it to make money. But I thought it was pretty good. Still had the same surreal atmosphere as As I Lay Dying and The Sound and The Fury
Just some random thoughts:
A really decent film, reminds me a lot of the old kungfu movies I used to watch with my Dad when I was a kid, but with a lot more blood and with an anime/manga twist.
Minus 1 for subtitles.
Obviously I’m on a chicken kick. It’s just so easy. Big chunks of butter on the vegetables.
Heat up some olive oil in a pan on medium heat, mince some garlic and saute for a minute. I like to cut up the chicken breast, just seems like it’s easier to cook and gets all the herbs and spices evenly covered. Anyway, throw in the chicken and some fresh chopped tarragon, add some salt and pepper and toss it around until it’s done. Take the chicken out and set aside. Now, for the cream sauce just throw in a pat of butter (if you think you need it) and let it melt. Sprinkle in a tablespoon of flower and whisk for about a minute. Add about a cup of chicken broth and whisk that around in the pan until the flour is dissolved. Here I added some dried tarragon to add some more flavor and about a tablespoon of heavy cream to help thicken it up and to be honest the yellowish color from the chicken broth looked kind of gross, so the heavy cream made it look nice. 🙂
A little oregano, a little basic, some garlic, some tomatoes, some spinach leaves, tossed together with some pasta and pan seared chicken.

While reading the book I remember thinking that the idea that having a baby out of wedlock as a sin is still the way some people think, we haven’t really come that far as a people in that regard. The novel is almost wholly narrative so if that’s not your thing (and it really wasn’t mine) probably best to get the cliff notes.
One of the best serialized TV shows ever produced. The character development of Andy Sipowicz is phenomenal and has not been reproduced to that level since. And the story arc when Jimmy Smits left the show was equally brilliant.
Very short but cool article.
Just what your see, shrimp, corn, sausage, and potatoes boiled with a shrimp boil spice pack. And a couple of beers because it’s a little spicy.
