The Cliffs Notes for YouTube

This video is titled, “Everything Great About Youtube – The MORT Eclectic,” but it’s pretty much a primer on every great video that’s ever made YouTube success. Thankfully, it left out that dumb dancing video that was popular for so long.

And if that dumb dancing video is in there, I missed it when I looked away for a minute.


Ann Coulter is a cunt

I’m not quite sure that “cunt” is strong enough for how I feel about the above clip.

Coulter is a shithole for degrading adoptees and homosexuals. If she were claiming to lead thought in the group I was associated with, I would throw her out with the Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh trash. She’s the third horseman in a group of ridiculous buffoonery. What an absolute embarrassment to good and decent humanity these people are.

In case your curious, this is the interview that is being referenced above.

These thoughts are from the group who oppose abortion.

How much cognitive dissonance must you have to be a part of the republican party?

If you have an unwanted child, abort him or her with destructive language.

That’s peachy cool!


Dinner blog: Chicken and Green Chili Enchiladas


Last night, I made an enchilada recipe that I’ve made twice before. I haven’t shot it, because getting the enchiladas to plate well has been challenging.

The above is the closest I’ve come to a decent looking plate. Of course, we had fat free sour cream that wouldn’t sit up well. To top it off, Tina was starving by the time I served dinner, and I hustled through a couple shots.

The recipe, which I’ll add below the fold, is a two-person meal from one of our America’s Test Kitchen cookbooks. We use chicken rather than the recommended turkey, because the recipes feature how to make one meal, and then use leftovers for several other meals. In other words, make a big turkey dinner for two, and here’s how to make a variety of other dishes.

The cover of the book features this recipe, and Tina kept saying, “Please make this. Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease!”

“I guess I can make it with chicken,” I said.

And we’ve never looked back. This is what I want for breakfast this morning. It is now my favorite meal.

Bon appétit.

It’s Caturday!

This week’s Caturday is brought to you by Xina. She and her husband have two cats, as well as their two dogs. You’ll remember Cosmo from last week. This week, say hello to Sunny. He’s saying hello to you!

Xina says,

This is Sunny. Or Bunny. Or Honey Bear. Or one of the 50 other nicknames we have for him. Sunny is a 9 year old cat that was more or less forced on me by a former co-worker. She showed up to work with him when he was only about 4 or 5 weeks old knowing that if I saw him I would not be able to say no. Sunny’s #1 favorite thing in the whole wide world to do is eat. And I’m not just talking about cat food. He absolutely loves to eat fabric. I have lost hundreds of dollars worth of clothing, sheets, blankets, towels, pillows, etc to him chewing large holes in them. That being said he is by far the most affectionate cat I’ve ever known and we love to take Saturday afternoon naps together.

Thanks, Xina!
