Re: Woll frying pan

Cornbread is best with chili, stews, fried chicken, BBQ-ed pork.... With BBQ cornbread is best prepared fried in the form of hushpuppies, fwiw. If you can find it, here's an overly complicated recipe that my friends from California love. Which white Zinfandel do you normally serve that shit with? O...

Re: Woll frying pan

no need to season the Woll. Turn the gas up high, pour some olive oil in, crack 4 eggs in, fry both side, and slide onto plate of toast and cheese impossible to burn the oil or burn the eggs, no special cleaning required. No seasoning. No idea what cornbread is, must be some hick yank thing Hick? F...

Re: Soundtracks From Movies

I just remembered "The Hired Hand", a really good little western from the early 70's directed by Peter Fonda. I think he produced it too with his Easy Rider money. I netflixed it because Warren Oates was in it. Anyway, the soundtrack by Bruce Langhorne was incredible. He played all of the instrumen...

After cleaning, coat it lightly with oil.

Greatest movie car chases

BC Bogatir's post in Soundtracks brings this up.

The 20 minute chase at the end of the Road Warrior is my pick for best.

Here it is, in two parts, for those with a lot of time in their day:

Hmm. The madman, architect, carpenter, and judge approach is pretty much the way I work, though I've never heard it described that way. The way I think of it is: vomit, structure, polish.

All of the writers I know do it this way. Elmore Leonard says that outlining your plot sounds a lot like writer's block to him. Then how do you teach a whole course in it?

Anybody have one of those new 3 lb computers?

350 to 450 bucks seems like a screaming deal.

Do they work OK?

Can you type on them if your hands are bigger than average?

Can you really get six hours off one battery charge?

Is the 10 inch screen difficult to work on?

What's the drawback, aside from lack of a DVD player?

Re: Best Binocular on earth...

I tried Steiners, and they are very good, but the top level Zeiss, Leica and Swavorsi are much better. Plus, Steiners have the rubber eye cup that is a pain if you wear glasses. Sure, the eye cups can be folded back, but they tend to get in the way every once in a while. Very poor eye relief on thes...

I believe Beefheart brought this up some time ago. Everything Willie says is true, but for the variations on the taste. Swedish snus is salt and tobacco. That's all.

Re: Best Binocular on earth...

So I got the Swarovski el 8.5x42. Went to the store and tried Zeiss and Leica. Optics are pretty similar in quality --- they are all astounding --- so how they feel in your hands and the quickness you can get them to the eye and focused on target are paramount. For me, it was no contest. Swarovski. ...
