Discordian Recipes / Teh Awesomesauce and baked ziti to feed an army.
« on: March 30, 2008, 04:50:42 pm »
Since I'm feeding this to D-Cup, Richter, Leln, Mr. Suu and myself today...I thought I'd share with everyone my recipe for baked ziti. Pics will be added as the day progresses.


3 cans of crushed tomatoes
1 can of tomato paste
1 can of diced tomatoes
2lbs of your preferred ziti (This time I'm using Prince™ Ziti Rigati. The ridges work well for holding the cheese)
2lbs of Ricotta cheese (I get part skim)
1lb of Mozzarella, low moisture. (with all the ricotta and sauce, you DON'T need slimy mozzarella!)
2 Bay Leaves
Minced garlic (the jarred kind) OR 2 fresh cloves, I'm just out at the moment.
Half of a red onion


The basis of this sauce is a family in, my mom, who gave each of her children the outline on how to make it. What we do with it from then on, is up to us. For example: My sister caramelizes onions in her version and my brother uses a carrot instead of adding sugar...The choice is yours. This is just my (It does tend to change depending on my mood or what I'm making or what spices we have available. Sometimes I use Adobo, cinnamon, cloves or mint, but for baked ziti, I keep it simple.)

Combine the 3 cans of crushed tomatoes and tomato paste in a large sauce my case it's practically a lobster pot (there's a reason for this). Stir in the paste, this helps thicken the sauce a bit for a baked dish. (For a regular pasta, I'd recommend a small can of tomato sauce rather than paste.)

Add salt and pepper. (I shake them both and whistle Jingle Bells quickly. That's how I measure.) Double the amount of pepper to the salt.

Add oregano...I use enough to cover the surface of the's gonna be mixed in anyway!

Add parsley...I don't use a whole lot. It adds more color and digestive help against the garlic and onion than flavor.

Add a little less than a teaspoon of sugar. This counteracts the acidity of the tomatoes.

Throw in the 2 Bay Leaves.

Add a heaping TABLESPOON of minced garlic. Don't be shy. It kills the worms. Or...chop your cloves and add them.

Peel and chop half a red onion. Make sure it's a bit on the fine side, but not TOO small. I tend to cube mine a bit.

It should sorta look like this:

Stir until everything is mixed evenly, and put the pot on the stove. Heat it at high heat uncovered until the moisture begins to escape, NOT BOIL, just a few bubbles and you're good. Lower the heat to a simmer and cover. Stir every 1/2 hour or so.........................Do this for about oh...6 hours. If the sauce starts getting a bit explosive, uncover, stir thoroughly, and recover, only this time leaving a sliver of an opening from the lid to allow moisture to escape.

Finished sauce:

When you hit that 6 hour mark, remove the sauce from heat and set aside. Get another pot on the stove ready to boil the pasta per the directions of whatever kind you have. This tends to take a while, especially in a pot big enough for 2 fucking pounds of ziti.

Some people do different things with their mozzarella. You'll find that most will grate it and mix it with the ricotta, me? I slice most it and put it on top, but still grate some of it for the grand mixture. So now is a good time to do what you prefer while water is boiling and sauce is cooling.

Once the pasta is in, get our your 2lbs of ricotta and gradually mix it to the sauce, but try not to liquify it, the chunkiness is a GOOD thing.

Preheat your oven to 350F/177C.

Drain your pasta when it's finished, give it a bit to cool so you don't BURN yourself, and then add it all into the big ass sauce pot with the cheesysaucyawesome. Stir slowly until all pasta is evenly coated, then throw it in your grated mozzarella, doing the same.

Once mixed to your content, carefully pour the pasta and sauce and cheesy-cheese-cheese mixture into your this case I have a 20lb foil roaster. Make sure it's down in there all evenly, then take that can of diced tomatoes and spread them over the surface of the goop. Take your sliced mozzarella and place it in a funky pattern or whatever on top of the tomatoes, and garnish with oregano.

Cover the pan with tinfoil completely and slide it into your oven on the top rack.

Put 45 minutes on the clock.


Yank that shit out, and let cool. Now is a good time to pop open that bottle of red wine.

Uncover the ziti and dish out with a spatula.

Discordian Recipes / What I did to my chicken last night.
« on: January 18, 2008, 05:18:18 pm »
Take 6 boneless chicken breasts, put them in a large bowl.

Coat with adobo.
Shake on a good amount of cumin.
Slather with hot sauce.
Toss in some oregano.

Rub it in. rub it ALL in.

Throw on the grill.

Serve with buffalo ranch dressing. (hot sauce mixed with ranch.)

I think I may have overdone it a bit on the cumin, but next time I want to use the same spices and cube the chicken to put in chili, or maybe marinate the chicken overnight in a vinegar base then bake it so it isn't as dry.

Or Kill Me / Dear Sci-Fi Channel...
« on: January 16, 2008, 05:03:20 pm »
I actually ganked this from a site:

Dearest Sci-Fi,

Why are you not way more awesome?

Don't get me wrong, when you're good—like with Battlestar Galactica or Eureka (and I'll even give you credit for Doctor who, despite that being a BBC show you just imported)—you're a phenomenal destination network. But let's be honest here, there's not a lot of "good" on your schedule. The Stargate franchise is stale, Flash Gordon (left) is a derisible, stillborn remake, and ECW Wrestling is…wrestling! (And I swore an oath never to speak of Who Wants to Be a Superhero again.)

The thing that infuriates me is that you have so much potential. We're living in the Age of the Geek, where pop culture has finally come around to our way of thinking. Where the most-watched shows on TV are geek-nip like Heroes, Lost, and Bionic Woman; where we buzz about movies like Pan's Labyrinth, Spider-Man, I Am Legend, and Iron Man. The audience could not be more primed for this material, so why are you offering them Ghost Hunters International and crappy "original movies" like Mansquito?
Again, why aren't you more awesome? After the jump, some friendly advice.

Why aren't you adapting more classic sci-fi texts—like you did with Dune—into miniseries events? (Ones that, hopefully, will fare better than Tin Man.) Where's the Foundation saga, or Ender's Game, or Footfall, or The Man in the High Castle, or The Forever War?

Why aren't you engaging today's premiere purveyors of genre material and giving them ten episodes to do whatever the hell they want? I'd watch contained, BBC-style series from folks like Neil Gaiman, William Gibson, John Scalzi, Cory Doctorow, Warren Ellis, Charlie Huston, Neal Stephenson, or China Mieville. The names alone would attract viewers by the truckload. And even if what they produced were failures, they'd be interesting failures—marked by reaching too far, instead of not far enough.

Why don't you try a daily sci-fi soap opera? Airing late at night, so people could actually be home to watch it—or DVR it. Why can't the same kind of serial storytelling that's worked for 50 years on shows like General Hospital be marshaled to create compelling science fiction? (Actually, I've got to give Evan Narcisse a tip of the hat for this one. Because I'm just that kind of bloke.)

Mark Harris was right when he said that science fiction needed to ditch the nostalgia if it's going to reclaim its integrity. Lucky for those of us who love sci-fi that there's a whole network devoted to it. I just want them to fulfill their mandate.

Imagine that. (No, seriously. Get to work imagining.)

I'll be using Lulu, so you get to order from them or like,, but yeah. No more than $20, full of my shitty doodles.

You buy, I be happy.

I'm going to actually plan it out a bit tonight. I figure 50 pages, which some for commentary or whatever, biography BS, then like a chapter for sketches, colored pencil, and um...big shit like the street painting festivals.

If anything it's good promo merch for my table...And I will probably want one in about 3 weeks for Templecon. Fuck, I gotta get rollin'.  :x

Mr. Suu got into my chat and email archives last night even after I asked him...many times...not to. Passwords have been changed remotely from work as to not be keylogged.

Scrid! Get me drunk...

PDers: Scheme.

I'll be back in a few some hardcore work to do today. Grr.

AKA: What fucking project is the former 40 year old fat man working on now?

A few familiars in the chatroom have heard me rant lately about this rather expensive ensemble I'm working on now for a coworker/friend (Who Richter and I like to call Delicious) who LARPs. Basically for $200 I'm making him puffy trousers (done), a Ren-style shirt (done) and a velvet doublet with silver trim. This is all due by September 21st.

Will I be done in time?

Will this gentleman be the belle of the ball?

Stay tuned for updates with pictures when available.

Discordian Recipes / PORK SHOULDER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
« on: August 17, 2007, 06:26:04 pm »
Puerto Rican Pork Shoulder...IT'S WHAT YUO CRAVE!!!!!

The official Mr. Suu recipe:

1. Kill a pig

2. Cut off the shoulder (hence pork shoulder)...Leave the skin on. You can cube it if you want and fry it in a pan (instant delicious heart attack though), or bake it like we do.

Stuff you need:

Black pepper
Sazon con Achiote
Splash of salt.

Season with everything to taste. Let marinade in fridge overnight or at least 3 hours.

Cook at 350-400 degrees. Usually takes a couple of hours depending on the size of the fucking pig you killed.

Eat and enjoy with your favorite Boricua side dishes such as rice and plantains.

Edited: I have no idea how the fuck I missed garlic in that.

Or Kill Me / Dear Mr. V8 Audi Man:
« on: January 29, 2007, 09:02:05 pm »
(This isn't a sermon, just a short letter to my new friend...)


Dear Mister "I'm hawt shit in my car",

What is the point of owning a V8 compact car? You won't be towing a boat or hauling anything in your Audi. So why did you pay so much more to upgrade not 2 cylinders, but 4 cylinders from the regular 4-banger? I'm sure the wheels will move just the same, and the Masspike is NOT the Autobahn. It's not worth it the amount of gas it will take you to go from Back Bay to the BCEC. Sorry.

Also, why are you talking on your phone with one hand, picking your nose with the other, and trying to turn onto South Street at the same time? I don't know HOW you're doing it, but I see no hands on your wheel, and it's kind of scaring me since I'm attempting to cross the street with my medium hot French vanilla extra-extra. Don't pretend like you don't see me, because I'm looking right at you. I see that pinkie in your nose...Maybe if you wouldn't snort up all that dust on your lunch break you would know that your knee is not an acceptable steering appendage.

Go ahead, hit me. Really, I dare you. Hit me. Because not only are you not yielding to a pedestrian, violating the law by talking on your cell or having both hands on your wheel, but you're also blowing a stop sign while turning onto a one-way street. I will rake you for what you are worth, and even take that shiny new Audi of your's while I'm at it. Oh, and you'll have to buy me another coffee too, because that last 2 dollars I spent on it is the last of my cash for 11 days.

This is dedicated to TGRR, since he seems to enjoy my ranting so.

I saved a life last night.

No rly! I did! I'm a hero! Go me!

This is a tale of how a good deed did, in fact, go unnoticed, and why I am in pain this morning...

As it's been previously stated, I commute from Providence to Boston for work and vice versa on the way home. The train I take home is typically the 8:15pm local. It's evil, I hate it, but for 8% more on my paycheck every other week, why the fuck not?

I always go to the first forward-moving car, which in the case on the way home is the one right after the engine. I do this for two reasons:

One: The noise of the engine tends to control the crowd in the car.
Two: Most lazy Americans don't want to walk the length of the platform to GET there.

So I do my thing as usual, with the daily Metro in hand cursing at the crossword puzzle and solving the Sudoku in about 3 minutes. This train takes about an hour and 5 minutes to get into Providence.

The last thing I want to do when I exit this train is involve myself with human contact of any kind. I'm tired, I want to go home, and typically I have to piss like a racehorse because I'll be damned, even in the gravest of circumstances or status of my bladder, to use the facilities on board of an MBCR train.

The train pulls into the station, and I high-tail it to the rear of the car, passing by a young black woman who is chatting away on her Sidekick and ignoring what I assumed was her small (3-4 year old) son. So I go to the door, and someone in front of me opens it. Now, for those that have never been on a commuter train, especially the car that attaches to the engine, the doors tend to be pretty heavy and are hard to latch open, so you really have to THROW it to the side to exit the train. Well the person in front of me didn't really push the door open hard enough, and I slipped through before it was slamming back. However, the wayward kid who was being shunned by his gossiping, Baby Phat and Apple Bottoms-glittering mother, decided that he wanted to follow........Just as that door was about to crush his skull.

Call it a '6th sense', call it 'woman's intuition', or just call it 'not wanting to deal with being a witness to a little boy being turned to goo in front of his mother and a potential lawsuit to MBCR', I dove back into the closing door, screamed, "WATCH OUT!" and pushed the kid out of the way. He fell back in front of his mother and I took a steel door to the left shoulder. I threw the door back with my weight and locked it in place, and caught eye-contact with the boy's mom, who stopped talking for a moment.

She looked at me, looked at her son, looked at me, looked at her son, then said straight out to him, "Next time you don't stay by me I'm gonna throw your ass off the fucking train if that's what you want!"

I was dumbfounded. No thank you, no nod, no nothing. Just verbal abuse to her son and back to her fucking phone as if nothing happened.

So I walked to the station, and replayed the events in my head...Then came to this conclusion:

Like a finger in the power-socket, the kid has to learn. Next time, let his skull get cracked, because my shoulder would thank me for it. Put your kids on a leash, kthxbye.
