2 tbsp. white miso
1 tbsp. tahini
1/2 clove minced garlic
1/2 a lime or lemon, squeezed
1 pinch cayenne pepper
dash o’ soy sauce
water to thin to desired consistency
That’s it, that’s all. It’s awfully good spooned over steamed vegetables.
There are a lot of things I like about Drew Gardner’s poetry. Last night, listening to him read/perform in a Soho bookstore, I made a list of some of them:
names: news anchors, actors, pols
short and/or mundane words: mad, sad, sandwiches
animalia: sealife in particular — seemingly endless supply of whales and tortoises — also hamsters and ORGONE GOPHERS (a phrase I instantly commandeered)
humorous self-deprecation (always good)
duly noted also: a groovy scale he played on his electro-keyboard — pentatonic? Drew, you tell me…
“The earth is but one country, and mankind [sic] its citizens”
I remain as vehemently secular as ever, but at the moment, in the wavering light and darkness of recent discussions, I’m interested in the Baha’i faith and in particular their vision of race unity. Could I overcome my abhorrence of the monotheism thing and actually convert? Hmmm…
A word from their sponsor:
Know ye not why We created you all from the same dust? That no one should exalt himself over the other. Ponder at all times in your hearts how ye were created. Since We have created you all from one same substance it is incumbent on you to be even as one soul, to walk with the same feet, eat with the same mouth and dwell in the same land, that from your inmost being, by your deeds and actions, the signs of oneness and the essence of detachment may be made manifest.
All men have been created to carry forward an ever-advancing civilization. The Almighty beareth Me witness: To act like the beasts of the field is unworthy of man. Those virtues that befit his dignity are forbearance, mercy, compassion and loving-kindness towards all the peoples and kindreds of the earth.
DON’T INSULTING CHIMPS
Calling humans “chimps ” is to necessarily an insult.
Don’t insult chimps. They’re family. [;)] but I don’t think chimp and human were cross. The datas from the experiement reinforce very well that human and Paris Hilton has the equivalent intellect to go head-to-head with any chimp out there.
Monkey art fools experts like Tim. But I really don’t care to hear about hairless apes. I live with several as it is.
Please don’t place whacko liberals in the same category as evolutionists. It’s insulting. Besides just because one believes in evolution does not mean that if brains were pasta you’d feel hungry, much like a chimp flinging dung as an insult.
Ask not at whom the Chimp smirks; he smirks at you.
Chimpanzees Don’t Wear Pants is a synthesis of modern evolutionary theory. People wonder why I don’t subscribe to the tenants of evolution. It’s insulting to the whole of humanity.
I don’t think saying someone is an Italian Mafia person is necessarily insulting. I call my husband “Bozo” all the time — does that mean I hate clowns!
‘Hippie Chimps ‘ Fast Disappearing in Congo — um, where are my pants?
Anyway, i don’t insulting America, i talking about my opinion. I have american friends
1) Don’t insulting other people’s art
2) Don’t insulting me with your money.
3) Don’t insulting your comrades Stiletto, they’re all you’ve got. Anyway the Lucifer’s shielding system is impervious to any type of Plasma or Kinetic weapon.
I don’t even know why I waste my gold material on retards that can’t even insult above a 3rd grade level. Fuck.
