Nice jam to accomplish the mundane. I gotta go cook too much food. Libraray cards, tho. That's painful...

@StayFrosty--RE cooking--Just got back from visit with Mom where we cooked up a storm so full freezer over here, but enjoy. I love cooking and JUST had my oven repaired Saturday--$500 but it's good for 5 years--so I can start cooking again. Library cards are a must in NYC as we have a really good e-lending program for stuff like movies, etc which you can stream.

Woo, haven't heard The Fall in a while...
Avatar 12:13pm Stay Frosty:

@Threemoons. You got in goin' on. Preparing and consuming food makes me happy, although I prefer cooking for others. I hardly ever have any food in the fridge. Now I have too much, but plan to freeze as well. Food and streaming...may I live vicariously through you?

Thank you Liz Berg of the Radio, for a chili makin jam.

I used to like downing Sweet and Low packets as a kid… But grew to hate the aftertaste.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:17pm Threemoons:

Please do! The ONE thing I may cook today is a recipe from Food 52 that I had to adapt when I had it all set up for the oven only to discover that the digital panel was kaput. Threw everything in the Instant Pot. Now I want to do it properly while that particular cookbook is still the Cookbook o the Month for my online cooking thingie that I am following. In the meantime, fridge is packed with homemade summer veggie succotash, fresh eggplant rolls (grilled eggplant stuffed with mix of ricotta, parm, herbs, eggs, and mozz, baked with tomato sauce), and my leftover Chinese food from the last few days of my last gig. Freezer full of assorted meat objects prepped with Mom this past weekend, including pork loin in sour cream sauce, mystery meat of some sort in sauce (probably lamb--was in back of Mom's standalone storage freezer), assorted preparations of chicken, and more veggie matter to stem off the inevitable weight gain that comes with a desk job.... :D

g'day, liz!
Avatar 12:19pm Serpico:

@JakeGould i don't really find a difference between sugar brands, but i use splenda because it's more healthy, apparently..also somehow causes cancer, apparently...
Avatar 12:19pm Stay Frosty:

@Threemoon. You had me at "assorted meat objects." I don't need to know the details as long as they are tasty. Not healthly, but yummy.
  12:23pm JakeGould:

@Serpico: You have no idea that Sweet and Low is not sugar?
Avatar 12:24pm Marcel M:

I saw Boris at Maxwells... that was really fun.

Boris with Sunn at the Masonic Temple was the loudest for me I think. Or maybe MBV the first time they got back together, at Roseland.
Avatar 12:25pm Serpico:

@JakeGould anything that "looks" white and griany looks like sugar to me :p
Avatar 12:25pm Monplaisir:

The loudest live I've seen was Merzbow feat Keiji Haino & Balasz Pandi, so loud, heavy. Vibrating everywhere, it was just full BRRRRRRZZZZKCHHH.
Avatar 12:26pm Stay Frosty:

I never had my septum vibrate, but I did have my eardrums vibrate. That was when I knew that I would be saying "Huh?" alot forever.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:27pm Threemoons:

@Serpico--ALL artificial sweeteners are crap for both one overall reason and various brand-specific reasons. Overall, they do NOTHING to stem diabetes--if your brain TASTES something sweet, it thinks sugar and the pancreas gets going no matter what. Also, the newer sweeteners--Splenda, NutraSweet, etc--are all made of "left hand sugars" which break down/metabolize into compounds that very closely match certain neurotransmitters. That's why some people get ringing in the ears from it, and it's not a good thing to give kids (some think the uptick in ADD is from parents giving kids sugar free soda) or people with any neurological condition (epilepsy, etc). That last point is NOT Woo-Woo Bullshit. I was a chunky kid, and I have a neurological condition, and my neurologist is/was one of the leading authorities on pediatric neuro stuff, and she was also pretty conservative and wasn't one to say a flat NO to something. The second Nutrasweet came out, she was all like "do NOT do this. Do NOT consume it. It's not safe for you." Oddly enough, the few times I tried it I couldn't TASTE it so she is probably right.
Avatar 12:29pm Serpico:

@Threemoons yeah that's what i've been hearing. i think i should stop with my spenda intake.
  12:32pm JakeGould:

Stop eating.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32pm Threemoons:

@Scorpio--yeah. Try just lemon or lime in seltzer, etc. Or just only have stuff with real sugar in it and cut back....
  12:34pm JakeGould:

Screw that. Just eat.

Once I had stevia baked into a cake and it was delicious, but every time I try stevia since then, it's vile and bitter, as bad as aspertame and sucralose. I just use honey or agave for my tea most of the time.
