I was telling a friend about the book _Trout Fishing in America_ and I realized that Chuck Tingle is the modern day Richard Brautigan.

Procedurally-modeled 1.3 shakuhachi. Critical measurements thanks to David Brown.

Sourdough crêpe with saucisson, sour cream, and homemade habanero kimchi and sriracha.

Voting is always tactical. Of course winning politicians will pretend not to realize that. For those of us with political opinions beyond the Overton window, voting is *harm reduction*.

Pig in blanket made with crêpe from sourdough starter castoff. Mustard, sauteed onions, hot sauce on the inside. Playing with this stuff is more fun than having the daily fresh sourdough (which, don't get me wrong, is also great).

Look, we're actually topical. Lockdown by Burn the Earth featuring Chris Penalber:

je l'ai senti dans my feet
c'est venu de n'importe ou
