Reylo Playlist

I finally saw TLJ and, well let’s be honest it had some major problems and made choices I don’t agree with, but all that aside I enjoyed it. Anywho, now that Reylo seems to be happening it’s playlist time. I would like to note that some of these songs were chosen based on the theory I heard from “Wayward Jedi” on youtube that Rey and Ben are Padme and Anakin reborn, particularly “Taking Over Me.” Also, a few of these were chosen with a grain of humor or the tone of the song don’t really fit the movies but I thought the lyrics worked (when I make fan playlists I generally pay much closer attention to lyrics than tone). A couple aren’t really Reylo but fit one of the characters, but I didn’t think of enough to give them individual playlists so they’re in here. Anyways, here’s my list thus far in no particular order:

Taking Over Me - Evanescence

Going Under - Evanescence

My Last Breath - Evanescence

Lost In Paradise - Evanescence

My Heart Is Broken - Evanescence

Immortals - Fall Out Boy

No Light, No Light - Florence + The Machine

Say Something - A Great Big World

Demons - Imagine Dragons

I’m Still Here - John Rzeznik

What Ifs - Kane Brown

Between The Raindrops - Lifehouse

Time is Running Out - Muse

Fade Into You - Sam Palladio & Clare Bowen/Nashville Cast

Wild Hearts Can’t Be Broken - P!nk

Beautiful Trauma - P!nk

True Love - P!nk

Chaos & Piss - P!nk

Timebomb - P!nk

Lost Boy - Ruth B.

Chasing Cars - Snow Patrol

Through Glass - Stone Sour

Wildest Dreams - Taylor Swift

Unsteady - X Ambassadors

You and Me - You+Me

In My Veins - Andrew Belle 

2009 Intipalka Valle del Sol Tannat

I’m always psyched about Tannat - especially when it’s from Peru! Both sweet and meaty on the nose with hints of cherries, raisins from Cuban picadillo, dried cherries, dates, figs, and cinnamon. Tarter fruit on the palate with dried sour cherries, dried herbs, brown spice, and hints of mint.

Penang Curry

1 - 1.3 lbs of chicken tenders (cut into cubes)
1 Can of coconut milk
2 Oz’s red curry paste (Brand - Thai Kitchen)
3 Kaffir lime leaves finely chopped (Or zest of 1 lime)
1 Lime (cut in half)
Splash of fish sauce (about a teaspoon)
2 Teaspoons of brown sugar (light or dark)
4-6 Cloves of garlic
½ Big red bell pepper
½ Big onion
1 Handful of chopped Basil (plus more for garnish)

Cut onions and peppers into bite size cubes and saute in olive oil for 4-5 minutes. Add salt and pepper. Add red curry paste and saute for another 2-3 minutes. Next add chicken, garlic, and kaffir lime leaves (or lime zest) and stir. Salt and pepper again. Cook for 2 minutes or until chicken starts to turn white. Add coconut milk and bring to a boil. Turn down heat and let simmer for 10-12 minutes. While simmering, add brown sugar, juice of half a lime and chopped basil. Taste and see (jokes). Too sweet? Add some more lime juice or salt. Too sour? Add more brown sugar, etc. Serve with rice and garnish with basil.

TIPS: Spicy Chile(s), bamboo shoots, and ginger would all be awesome additions to this dish.  Add chiles and ginger when you add the garlic. Add the bamboo shoots after you add coconut milk.

Top 5 favorite food please !

Oh! I love food. Let me think….
1. Thali (especially with butter chicken, aloo gobi, mutter paneer and this eggplant dish I can’t remember the name of) Is this answer cheating? Maybe. There’s no rules though, so….
2. My mom makes this amazing pork loin with a stuffing full of cranberries and green apples.
3. Strawberries. Perfectly ripe strawberries are the best thing ever. Especially when dipped in sour cream and brown sugar.
4. Crumpets with peanut butter.
5. Sweet potatoes. I love them so much I only eat them at Christmas. That makes sense I swear.


Made a trip out to Berkeley the other day. I’ve been in contact with Jay Goodwin over at The Rare Barrel about my microbiology project I’m working on and he was kind enough to give me some samples of beer I can run tests on.

Next week I’ll be trying to culture Pediococcus damnosus out of these beers. The first sample Jay gave me is a year-old golden sour that, during initial propagation, expressed ropiness which I suspect is a likely sign of exopolysaccharide production through β-glucan synthesis brought on by P. damnosus. The second sample is also a month-old golden sour brewed with a mixed culture including a White Labs strain of P. damnosus that does not expresses ropiness.

While I was in the area I also popped by The Torpedo Room to do some tasting. I got a flight of the new Ovila Brown with Mandarin and Cacao and Ovila Quad with Cherries. I also got tasters of Hit Me With Your Best Hop Schwarzbier / Black Lager, Audition Double IPA, Old Chico Pale Bock as well as a half pour of Audition Stout. On my way out I grabbed a bottle of Trip In The Woods Barrel-Aged Stout aged in red wine and bourbon barrels, Trip In The Woods Barrel-Aged Old Ale aged n bourbon barrels, and growlers of Audition Double IPA and Otra Vez.

I don’t want to jinx myself, but I found out I was invited to a second round of interviews with Sierra Nevada and wanted to do some due diligence, try some of their newer beers, and ask people how they liked working for the company and if they had any advice going into my second interview.

Don’t Chase the Boys

Dipping a toe into Heith!Stripper AU. Remains shameless while doing so. (I wanted to play dress up with glittery Keith. /shrug)

Warnings/Notes: Sort of suggested Shance maybe (it was there, in my head at least). Boys in glitter and skirts. Creepy Human Zarkon. Hunk’s thirsty. 

The first rule to working at Club Galra, the one think Zarkon stressed before offering Hunk the job, was that floor staff were not to date the dancers. Or as Haggra, Zarkon’s right hand woman, put it “Do not flirt with, do not fuck, do not date, do not try to save the strippers.”

Hooray, hooray, it’s time for Friday Reads! I’m getting my borscht on with Mastering the Art of Soviet Cooking (and feeling weirdly nostalgic for the huge brown semi-sour loaves that I lived on for two years in Prague– mmmm, chleb). 

Intern Megan says Where the Bird Sings Best is “every bit as bonkers and mindblowing as I feel like Jodorowsky probably is.”

Mr. Bob Mondello reports, “I’m getting a jump on Shakespeare’s Birthday (April 23) by reading accounts of the Astor Place Riots in Shakespeare in America: An Anthology from the Revolution to Now.  Amazing story about a time when folks took theater reeeeeeally seriously: On May 19, 1849, more than 15,000 fans of American actor Edwin Forrest, descended on the Astor Place Opera House where his British rival William Charles Macready was performing Macbeth. The rioting not only stopped the show, but also resulted in 20 deaths and more than 100 injuries. Those were the days, no?“ 

Founding Mother Susan Stamberg is reading Listener Supported as she prepares an obituary for Don (not Dan) Quayle, NPR’s first president – tune in to tonight’s All Things Considered to hear it.

Editor Nina has a little light weekend reading, Vincent Crapanzano’s Recapitulations.

And Code Switch’s Karen Grigsby Bates has an ARC of Wednesday Martin’s Primates of Park Avenue. “Martin, an anthropologist, moved with her husband and child from downtown to Manhattan’s Upper East Side and used her anthropological skills to explain the social mores of the 1%. Equal parts frightening and entertaining.”

How about you? What’s on your shelf this weekend?

Thornbridge - Sour Brown. First off this is an expensive beer. At just shy of £9 it is not one to have a session on. However, this is a really complex beer, you can really taste the cherries and raisin with the warmth of the oaky wine underpinning it all. There are layers and layers of flavour, this is what you would expect to pay a small fortune for if it were a wine. Oh yeah, it is sour, but not overpoweringly so. Well executed and very special. Would love to mature one in the bottle and see how it pans out. Exceptional.
