Trojan -- I'm mostly veg'n, a contraction I use for "vegetarian" NOT VEGAN (SORRY TO CONFUSE DESDEMONA!), but do occasionally stray, mostly insentient creatures with notochords, like shrimp and sardines.  I don't know if too many people can really do a cold climate on a pure vegan diet -- I get borderline ill and have to at least have some eggs and dairy, which seem to be a decent non-killing delivery system for protein, B12, calcium, and all that good stuff.  But if there's turkey or whatever put in front of me, it's already dead, nothing will bring it back to life, then I'm not going to let it go to waste.

Donot -- glad to know hens just naturally lay infertile eggs.  As for teat-sited cruelty, yeah, it's hard to contest that the machines are painful, I've heard they induce bloody cuts and lesions and mastitis is pretty common in factory farming.  I buy "happy cow" milk at the local coop, which claims the cows live outside, frolick in the meadows, listen to chamber music, whatever.

Jbot, vegetarian spaghetti sauce is tricky, you have to bolster it with something -- pinto or azuki beans are a good option, but they need to really simmer in the Italian spices a while and absorb the flavor.
  
Seeing Darjeeling Express this weekend.  You know, speaking of countries where veg'nism is big.

I could have swore I was in the movie forum...  Some people like a non meat sauce, but if you want to get as close as possible, we make a "crumbles" product that you can buy at the store that works pretty darn well for substituting mouth feel for ground meat.  Morningstar farms also makes one (and possibly Boca also).

Yes, Martin. The David Lynch artwork is nice...

I'll explore this fine gallery some more.

Thank you.

Lynch is such a minimalist...

Saying so much with so little...

David Lynch m’avait demandé de dessiner des souliers pour son exposition à la Fondation Cartier. Il peignit certains d’entre eux pour les montrer dans une cage. A mon tour, j’ai voulu lui demander d’en photographier d’autres, que j’aurai conçus dans ce but. David Lynch est l’un des plus grands réalisateurs vivants. Comme ses films sont extrêmement codés, j’ai voulu des souliers fétichistes, dont le fantasme obéit lui aussi à des codes.

Beaucoup ne voient le soulier qu’en accessoire de la marche. Pourtant, il est des souliers pour courir, d’autres pour nager… Et aussi des souliers destinés au sexe. S’il est un élément de fétichisme dans la garde-robe, c’est le soulier féminin, même sans talons. Il a l’allure d’un totem.

Well, since you're on my side...

I'll go along with part of that.  I have to admit I had a thing for feet...mostly when I was much younger...  When I think of shoes for all occassions though I always come back to Imelda Marcos and that sort of ruined it for me...  But honestly, I can see the interest.

I'm not really a David Lynch fan...but his weather report amuses me and I do want to try his coffee...

Very good. I like somebody with a sense of humor.  Smiley

Isn't that, well, sorta like what we're all here for?

To kind of entertain ourselves a little bit?

Get away from dreary politics and all crummy stuff?

At least that's how I look at moviegoing...

I may get moody and neo-noir...

I have this intellectual side of me...

But like I'm only human...

Todd Browning like Lynch... he had fetishes too...

Browning got off on young pretty ankles...

And James Mason loved Lolita's pretty toes...

The way he delicately painted her little toes... hmmmm

In that Nabokov movie way back when...

The dawning of my own sexual urges as well...

Ever read the novel...

Sometimes films & novels...

Go hand in hand...

No, trojan, I was just saying that I don't like sliced ham, not suggesting that we have pink barbeque, in fact, SC is recognized as the most distinctive barbeque, and it's easy to find a diagram of three barbeque regions, "mustard-based," tomato or "ketchup-based," and my favourite, "vingear-based," to which I add a sweet mustard sauce and some hot sauce.

Sorry, but I don't think that a little food-talk is that out of bounds after the fetishistic art thread.

Again, no sympathy for fish nor fowl.

The Triumph of the Swill!


No, really, it sounds tasty.  And some Dorothy David Lynch dressing on the salad.

Preparing to put "2046" into the DVD player.  Wish me luck.
