Thursday is relatively quiet, not sure in Michelle's case, but all crises have been caught up with thus far. Spent this morning listening to the hearings and all I'll say is that it was depressingly railroaded and when it wasn't, it was completely left field "say anything just so we can divert the intention of this hearing." When people wonder why I'm independent, listening to people endlessly verbally fellate someone just isn't my thing no matter where it comes from.

Podcasts
Sporkful is delivering: found out about a Sweeney Todd production that serves the audience a pie. According to the podcast, they use truffle, which does lend to a very human smell.

Another great episode is on Rosa Parks and recipe for pancakes. The episode on this one is fantastic; lots of details about the woman behind the myth. It's a reminder of how certain histories are modified to make it work better with our modern narrative. Also, there's a recipe for lemonade that involves boiling the lemon that sounds like something I should do just to bring out an awesome smell in the house. Plus, it offers a suggestion for a George Washington Carver episode to come.

Nerdy Show Network has The Orphans, and it's got a bit of a We're Alive vibe to it in a sci-fi world. I'm not engaging into it as easily as Liberty: Critical Research, but it's interesting. Would be nice if it was easier to find their drama pieces between all the review/commentary casts they do which just don't interest me as much.

I listened to some Dumb People Town as well, and there's something awesome about hearing Sam Richardson having fun with it. He shares a great story about the guy who held the hot beer in an episode of "Detroiters" that is amazing. By the way, if you like watching two dudes being dumb guys in a friendly "everyone's welcome" kind of way, then I recommend giving it a watch. So glad Lorne is giving it a green light for season 2. Which brings up...

Television
I can't believe OITNB is coming back by the end of this week.

No photos today. Really was too busy, otherwise I would have documented the making of the filling portion. Nothing to really show though; a lot of it was pretty standard fare. I'll try to remind myself to get some shots of the crust now that I have the leisure to.

Oooh! I'd LOVE to go to a production of Sweeney Todd with meat pies. That sounds amazing! <3

Doug jokes from time to time that it would be fun to open a barber shop down the street from us--on Fleet St., and called it Demon Barber. I think it would be subtle fun just to open a meat pie restaurant on that street.

I'll have to check out Spoonful. It sounds interesting.
