Sunday, May 5


the fourth awakens?
it sure does.
star wars is good for you, or at least it used to be.
pizza still is extra good any day.
so, i got into a little combo for my face-
how many puns could i fit to make it starry and warlike?
a few.
wanna see?
reppin' that SITH-CILIAN!!
it's that shmi skywalker- feel me? it's an immaculate grandma.
the dough is homemade.
the chee' is too.
the sauce is from-scratch.
the sausage is my custom tempeh magic.
you want recipes?
1 1/2 cups of king arthur flour;
1/2 cup semolina;
2 tsp sea salt;
2 T olive oil;
1 cup of warm water;
2 T sourdough starter;
1 pkg dry yeast;
1 tsp bread machine yeast.
kneaded for 11 minutes, until it's all shiny,
and cover it before you put it in the fridge.
then let it slooooow proof for at least 12 hours.
in my rectangular pan, coated with olive oil, warm-proofing post-stretch-
while the oven heated to 485℉.
there's spinach on the bottom.
then some minced daiya mozz' eisley chee' over that.
mincey style is how it's done.
rules is rules.
why wouldn't you mince it?
it just plain works better.
caramelized onions on top of that!
carmies are the business. they're great.
then there's that momaw-rinara nadon jauns.
sauce, neighbors.
it's great.
1 T finely minced onion;
1 clove crushed garlic;
2 tsp olive oil;
black pepper and pink salt;
gently brown that, and add:
3 T nootch;
1 tsp ea. GPOP, oregano, dried parsley, thyme, sage;
2 tsp basil;
1/2 tsp rosemary;
1 32 oz can of crushed tomatoes;
1/4 cup of warm water-
bring it to a boil, then simmer it for 30 minutes.
or more if you like realllly good sauce.
y'gotta blop it on there heavy.
that's important.
a sicilian has that BIG sauce activation.
then you gotta freak it off with that mozz' espa tapioca/tofu/cashew magic.
soak 1 cup cashews in boiling water for an hour.
add them, plus 1/4 cup tapioca starch;
1 block pressed siken tofu;
1 T lemon juice;
1 1/2 tsp ea GPOP;
pink salt;
2 T olive oil;
3 T s'milk.
3 T nootch.
pulverize and puree that whole thing-
then add it to a small saucepot, bring it up to high heat,
and stir it until it's sticky af.
it gets all melty when you bake it.....but, after it's cooled it works way different.
so be fresh with it for expert results.
or don't and suffer the consequences.
it's your life, bro.
then y'gotta top it with the real stuff.
ponda baba-bella muchrooms, dry fried.
deliciously aqualish'ious
that's just siced baby bellas and salt and high heat and one flip after a bit.
slivered red onions? sure.
and fried garlic sprankles.
i mean, those're mandatory.
that's a thing.
if you ain't got those, you ain't havin' Folk Life pizza, and you maybe ain't sh!t.
and tempeh sausage.
1/2 block of tempeh;
2 T chopped onion;
1 clove crushed garlic;
a little GPOP, rosemary, sage, parsley, thyme, oregano, basil, black pepper.
lots of smoked paprika;
a dash of liquid smoke;
a tablespoon of tamari; 
and a half a cup of warm water, all simmered until it's all one brown crumbly mess.
it isn't science. 
it's barely cooking.
it IS delicious.-
and last but not least, parsley sprankles.

original 1977 chewbacca.
rest in peace peter mayhew, f'real.
missing out.
i don't ever really have the fear of missing out.
but i have an acute case of missing people.
no not missing persons.
i know where they are.
i just miss 'em.
i'm a busy man, which helps a lot.
but i'm not so busy that the gaps in between activities don't feel HUGE.
big spans of space where the emptiness is overwhelming.
missing people.
or maybe they're missing me.
i feel like that's less likely.
they're maybe not staying so busy,
but they're sure as heck enjoying themselves more.
i could use some jedi mind tricks to convince myself that i'm ok.
i'm a muh-fuhh'n toydarian, mind tricks don't work on me...only money
if you know, you know.
we overlap.
we intersect.
we echo over and through, waves and waves, and waves,
of interconnected experience and activation.
darth maul.
he has a really rich history in the star wars universe.
most people just know he looked kinda cool, 
and got cut in half.
but, when nobody was paying attention,
he was instrumental to the events between episodes 1-4.
i'd like to matter that much, even if nobody really knows it.
i'll know.
the real ones will know.
and that has to count for something,
or else it's just a bunch of dooku;
never quiet, never soft.....
