and there was his own do it yourself mental examination....

Brain Feathers !

Brainpan Boogie
video
New version Tues 13th

Do you speak in chunks of mutton and mint flavored word sausage?
Sometimes even "Golden Glob" winners do too...
Well, this took all day....... to craft 37.2 seconds of Uptrite' pooetry !

What I do like, is the camera pan I did with the old MOHO program (it is now Anime' sandwich or some such) and the goofers I drew in ZBrush and the fiendish looking kid who menaces at the end...the model of the woman I like too..cuz it's not much in the way of a TP "Hideousity"--AND....Over Dog "bit" spokesdog.

I do like the idea 'Brain feathers being preened n' fluffed into a dream pillow'....I may use that idea properly one day...but never the less..here is what took me a whole damn day...and now...I finally kinda like it !

I found that to make fun of people who sing in their cartoons..you have to try to sing...I wont DO that again (Cybil Shepard syndrome I call it )--I also will never use my 'Nancy Grace' voice again....
...talk about creepin myself out !

There will be Beans !

Ready--aim--FIRE....
Tuesday I decided to make a huge pot of chili--so when I shopped for all the stuff I remembered to get chili powder
(the kind with all the 'chili aspect' in it---cumin-garlic-chili-basil or whatever ALL the ingredients of 'chili' are)
So, at Meinhardts I pick up the envelope of 'chili' powder --
come home...
braise the meat...
cook the onions...
green peppers --
tomatoes...
tomato sauce...
tomato paste (to glue any broken tomatos back together)
black beans--
kidney beans...
and the chili flavoring sauce....
stir...
taste...

........no chili flavor??.....
But HOT oh my god--the chili PREP powder was all CAYENNE

--yes Meinhardts
was literal
(no one else I know is)
instead of calling it cayenne powder
they labeled it chili...most people take that to mean quick n' dirty combo fixins..

Well...2 pounds o' meat is ruined...

all told 5 pounds of edible item should be flushed.....

one bite of this and you'd be in the emergency award...

yes...this was MACE in the non spray version, with beans...
What to do??? go buy real chili fixin powder 2 more cans of each bean--2 more pounds of meat??
damn, no, the idea is use what I've got......remember-the problem is icy sidewalks and getting to any store that has that stuff is a big factor.
well I have curry cubes (Glico) mild...so I'll morph this into CURRY !
I have banana's -
-overly sweet Goldilocks brand shortbread...shaved back to powder...
....milk....
but no yogurt --
no nuthin to kill the fire-
no coconut--no chutney--
--alright all of the above get chopped and sifted in--

oooh the bananas really help
...

milk..too...
so now it has a wonderful flavor--really --not kidding

...cept this is the reaction I would get...
"mmm Thonrndike--this is soo flavourful and sweet --and rich--oooh it is heavenly...

wait....

20 seconds in--

it's a bit hot isn't it??--

ohh it's so good but it's so hot...
oh my god...my head is pounding ...

my gut !"
wheee oooo wheee ooo....(sound of ambulance)
So, I put it away...thinking after a few days in the fridge I'll go buy food to dilute it...like a stew maybe...
so today I bought more meat--more onions -celery-plum tomatoes--potatoes-carrots...and I precooked those things in 3 batches and dumped them into the pot after they were cooked.....stirred it up...simmered it...
and it is just the right hotness...and still flavorful...red wine splashed in helped...so did cranberry sauce (small amount) so the once upon a time chili--will be Curry Stew !

and oh yeah---I used my coffee grinder to powder up some cumin seeds...that will be nice next time I grind some dark roast

and ..DAMN !
this stuff is good...
unfortunately it looks a bit like......

POOT!
