Hey, motherfuckin' Food Network!
Give this woman a show, please...

Chips and Dip

This may place me in a certain area and era of development, but man I love some chips and dip.
Growing up, you knew it was a deal if there were chips and dip at a given event.
Not super fancy, but deserving of some extra effort...

Now I am not talking about tortilla chips and salsa.  That might count as chips and dip in some circles, but that was foreign food in my neighborhood.

Hell, I am not sure anybody but the Spanish teacher at my high school knew what guacamole even was, in that town...
I didn't.

But some wavy cut potato chips and some sour cream mixed with French onion soup mix, now that wasn't international, that was just how it was done...
The chips, ideally, are the aforementioned ripple cut.  It allows for maximum leverage in the dip scooping, you know.  If the chips were made by a company that had twice as many consonants in the name as vowels, that was a good sign.
Dip, well that could be more artistic.  More artisanal.  People had there own favorite recipes gleaned from the newspaper or some magazine.  Maybe, from a dairy association ad.  Or from the soup mix company advertisements, as I am pretty sure those never got used for actual soup making.

People seem to have forgotten about chips and dip.
Maybe it was just me...
My instinct pulled me back to them recently.  Perhaps a backlash to the whole foodie, high brow scene.
The honesty and simplicity appeals to me, as of late.
Salty, fried fatty things used as tools to scoop flavorful fatty stuff.  That is really a nouveau foodie thing right there - and chips and dip have been about doing that for decades...

Your doctor may not agree with my advice, but go get yourself a bag of ripple chips and some onion dip.
It will be worth it...

You can always go back to the flax seed pita/bagel crisps with organic kale Greek yogurt and white bean whatever stuff.  There still gonna be there for you...
Just pointing out that the savory indulgence of chips and dip.  Simple chips, simple dip.
Maybe bad for you long term, but really pretty damned good in the moment...

Ahh Look

Just look at this adorable smiling albino snakey snake...
Don't you just want to tickle it's cold scaly belly?
Of course you do.

Paul's Boutique.

If it is not on your favorite albums list, we probably just shouldn't talk to each other.

Anyway, not to go full geek out on the thing, I stumbled across this playlist...
The songs and then the songs sampled to make the songs.

I am the type to read citations in the back of books, so this appeals to me...

Sunday Drive

Well...nice pairing of beige, tan and brown I guess.

Is that like a theme or something?


Another trip around the sun completed...


If I gained any wisdom or insight about this whole in the past year...
Well, go figure it out for yourself.
Because I have better things to do (or not do) than sit around here handing you platitudes on damned silver platter.

And get off my lawn...
