    Aloha,

    Today was a comfortably average day. Did some work, hung out around the house, no zombies or angry cyborgs, so I'm feeling fine.

    On Tonight's Menu:

    Thai Style Noodles & Chicken Feet - Vermicelli Noodles in a Red Peanut Curry Sauce with Napa, Carrots, Basil, Cilantro, & Scallions with Marinaded Chicken Feet & Hot Peppers...

    [​IMG]

    ...and tonight's selection for Pre-War Blues Week is a beautiful song from 1930 by Elvie Thomas with Geeshie Wiley on guitar. These two ladies were some of the originators. I'm certain that you'll notice how poor the quality of the recording is. This is because you are hearing one of the only copies of the record that has survived over the years(I doubt ten even exist). Its an example of why I love finding 78's, they are actual pieces of history and sometimes you may get lucky and come across an undiscovered treasure. Some recordings of the original Delta Blues have been lost forever unfortunately. I hope one day to find an original 78 of tonight's song "Motherless Child Blues", not because its worth a small fortune, but because I would love to hear this sweet, sad song unadulterated by neglect and time...



    Feel free to talk about your food or your music.

    Hopefully all the positive people stay positive, all the funny people stay funny, and all the negative ones take a long, hard look in the mirror.

    Yup. I think GHP and I are the only Chicken Feet fans here.

    You really have to try them to appreciate them. They're like chicken wings, they have a great flavor and texture and they're sort of tough to eat(lots of little bones).

    Everything looks good. Well, except the chicken feet. I just can't do it. It reminds me of toenails.

    I always wondered, does anyone else notice that weird glitch that always used to be in the announcer's read of "and up your b/lock". For a while I wasn't sure what word he was saying.

    I'm sticking to the noodles, thanks.

    Those guys come on the radio all the time. They're fun, but not great or anything.

    The guy from RHCP that looks like Will Ferrell is a member too. :)

    Obviously not very long.

    My title tonight was an old Howard 100 News handle. ;)

    Its okay, some people just don't dig them, some people wouldn't feel like trying them. When I get them from my favorite Szechuan place, the staff always lights up because people who look like me usually order wings or General Tso's Chicken.


    The noodles were great and I appreciate you taking a look, madame! :toptip:

    No I don't remember that.

    Thank you! :toptip:

    Glad you took the time to stop by, Clutch-ey Wutch-ey! :c

    Sounds awesome as usual. I almost made Kimchi Fried Rice instead because it sounded so good when you talked about it.

    Okay I lied, I was huffing gold paint behind a dumpster and it came to me while I was having an inner-city vision quest. Busted. :nocheer:
