i can't help but wonder as i eat fries, "will i be enjoying these fries in 10 years time?"

Local Garda, Wednesday, 13 May 2009 15:42 (eight years ago) Permalink

i'm always looking to see what else i have to go with my fries. sometimes i just arrange all the starch and mix 'n' match until something has that flava.

not feelin the "funk on a whole nu level" track. maybe the original doesn't need an edit, but seems like it's a no brainer that a michael mcdonald loop would be amazing. wasted opportunity, imo

I agree. I was not stoked on that remix. The 'Jamming' mix with the Michael McDonald chorus left intact is the best mix in my opinion.

hopefully if they are somehow contaminated with tape worms, the answer to that will be "no" but somehow i bet we're not that lucky.

speaking of parasites, i think it's great that Ronan likes this kind of music now. good for him!

pipecock what are you favorite fries?

rip dom passantino 3/5/09 never forget (max), Wednesday, 13 May 2009 19:38 (eight years ago) Permalink

best fries ever are both pgh spots: The O and the fries at the Potato Patch stands at Kennywood. classic.

pipecock, Wednesday, 13 May 2009 19:57 (eight years ago) Permalink

my understanding is that those are pale, soulless ripoffs of better fries made by black guys in detroit

rip dom passantino 3/5/09 never forget (max), Wednesday, 13 May 2009 19:59 (eight years ago) Permalink

your understanding would be wrong. if you want to question the O's black cred, i strongly suggest you go there on a friday night around 1am and do so outloud.

pipecock has eaten fries with black people at 1 am; who dares question his cred?

moonship journey to baja, Wednesday, 13 May 2009 21:29 (eight years ago) Permalink

It's not about the fries themselves, but the community that has invested in preparing them, packaging them, eating them, and sometimes digging them out of crates.

Europeans don't get this, they think the experience of fries is all about some new seasonal flavouring.

Tim F, Wednesday, 13 May 2009 23:00 (eight years ago) Permalink

i get all mah fries for free offa the internet. sometimes i worry that i'm missing out on a broader more meaningful cultural experience when i get my fries this way, but really, who can say no to all these fantastic fries??

I only like fries from the '70s that have been re-edited and had echo added to them.

yeah shit is awesome.

tom, thanks to you, in two weeks i will be eating O fries for the first time in probably 10 years, more like 15, just based on that picture alone. i can taste them just looking at them. damn you.

actually if you read the thread it started as a good humoured joke not ripping the piss out of anyone

btw yes i'd like if we can introduce irish famine now please? the tragic event has typically faddish taste in music. enjoys a beer though.

ronan has received death threats two times in a week from dance music extremists and all we can talk about is fries!!!

so hot coins (check out "You Can't Save Your Soul" for slo-mo pounding funky house) and the revenge both have hip hop as as genres on their myspace pages. now i don't go by these religiously, but does anyone has anyone from the UK seen them live? do they throw hip hop in with their sets? bpm-wise it seems to make sense, but i haven't heard much distinctly hip hop from either of them

in the Red Rack'em (aka hot coins) mix & interview on cool in the pool mentioned upthread he mentions his different aliases and says this:

Roughly speaking Hot Coins is the cosmic, balearic, electro disco stuff.

a friend of mine just posted some thoughts to his facebook page, it's good stuff:

http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=604087574&ref=profile#/note.php?note_id=76640447886&ref=nf

***SPOILER*** if you have not seen the season finale, read no further. also there will be a small spoiler about stephen kings' THE STAND. i'll let ya know when i get there. ****

so, it all comes down to what john locke told walt in season one. the black rock vs. the white rock. good vs. evil. jacob vs. esau. we now have in place the pieces of the final war. we also have the shucking off of the sub-plots that have made the story so mind bending. of course that could be a bad thing for those of us who love that aspect of the LOST game. anyway, some observations.

RELIGION & PHILOSOPHY
we now know why egypt has been so important to the storytelling in lost. the egyptian book of the dead is the foundation of all the worlds dominant religions (i know some will debate its' importance to buddhism but heck, most folks who follow it don't consider buddhism a religion anyway). so, LOST is exploring the very nature of our religious tendencies. jacob as a christ like benevolent god. esau as the serpent. the island the garden of eden (or mu, or atlantis), a place of alchemy where scientific, magical, & spiritual properties co-exist.

the philosophy part is as simple & complex as free will versus pre-determination. jacob placed our heroes in their spots giving them the chance to make the right choices that will lead to their redemption. the choice is always theirs. esau manipulates the weak, seeing the human animal as a fixed system that will always make the same choices over & over again.

WHAT ILANA SAID TO RICHARD ALPERT
"what lies in the shadow of the statue ?"
alpert: "he who will protect/save us"
(thanks to all the latin scholars over at darkufo for that quick translation last night)
so, my take on this is that jacob is not only our heroes redemptive figure, he is humanity's redemptive figure. the island itself is the reset button or lynchpin for the entire world. jacob & esau fight not just for the souls of the castaways but for the fate of the entire world. will humanity break the cycle of constant war or find some form of redemption (what this redemption will look like i'm not sure of yet).

A MAN WHO THOUGHT HE WAS A GOD
eloise, widmore, ben, the so called leaders of the others have all thought themselves masters of the game. they have all tried to take control of the island. they are just wannabes. the chumps in the casino thinking they've got a system, when the house always wins. each was exiled in some manner for their hubris (though we have not witnessed eloise in this manner, so i'll reserve judgement on that one).
