Further proof that Wikipedia is inaccurate

I googled my horror movie, Blood on the Highway, as one occasionally does, and found the wiki-page. And I see that two of the extras clearly edited the summary to say that they starred in the movie. OH REALLY. I'll be emailing the producer about that one. What the hell, dudes? And let me just remind everyone with Comcast or Time-Warner Cable that time is running out for VOD viewing. I believe it will be available on Netflix for streaming soon, too. Add it to your queue! :)

The other movie I was in, St. Nick, has been tearing it up on the film festival scene. It just showed in Greece where apparently Werner Hertzog loved it. !! Very cool. It really is a beautiful film, and even though most of my scenes ended up on the cutting room floor, I'm proud to have my name attached in any capacity.

For anyone who missed it and is interested *crickets* I posted about a commercial I filmed over the weekend and the excitement of jamming your feet into marshmallows for hours. I'm mostly saying that again so I can interject with a PSA: STOP SPELLING IT MARSHMELLOWS. MALLOW. It's a plant. It's what was originally used to make the product, the root of the MALLOW PLANT = MARSHMALLOWS. MALLOW not MELLOW. I just judge you when you do that, okay? That and when "then" is used instead of "than." (Hint: the first one is for TIME and the other is for a COMPARISON. Please figure that one out, already.)

I need to spend the rest of the day getting off book and figure out who these characters are for an audition (the more I prepare, the more I'm thinking this is a ... lame project. Ugh, I shouldn't say that, but it's very... student film. Eh, if they pay me, I'll sell the hell out of whichever role I'm given.) then hopefully go see New Moon tonight in an IRONIC CAPACITY. That should be obvious, given my track record.

Oh, last note: Curb Your Enthusiasm! No spoilers, but I just love the visual proof that Seinfeld was really nothing more than Larry David RPF. We've all known this, but still. It's funny. Last night's finale had everything. EVERYTHING! It was the BEST, Jerry, the BEST! :D (There could be spoilers in the comments, so be forewarned.)

entrenous88! If you're online, STOP HERE. :) and <3 The kids and the Mr. are out at the deer lease camping and hunting. (I know some of you are anti-hunting. Eh. I like getting organic, free-range, cruelty-free meat (mostly- I mean, they do die, but it's instant.) Proper hunting is way more humane than how the meat in your market arrives, I can guaran-damn-tee you that. Vegetarians and your lack of meat, notwithstanding. :) Mmmm, venison! Last week the Mr. got a 200 pound wild hog - he literally brought me home the bacon. And 120 pounds of dressed pork. And I get to have yet another year of not buying meat at the market, hooray!

200-lb wild hog?

Can I come eat at your house?

Seriously, one of the top ten things I've ever eaten was wild boar that had been hunted by someone in the extended family of my host family in Normandy. They were having a birthday party and it was the main course and they asked if I knew what I was eating. Nope. "Sanglier" was not in my vocabulary for some reason, and their attempted explanation about the trophy head on the wall in the other room was not getting through. Finally, one of the elderly aunties piped up "Porc sauvage!" and I got it.

I'm right with you on responsibly hunted being way more humane than factory-farmed!

It was longer than my almost-14 year old son when they hung it up in a tree to dress it. MASSIVE. (The head weighed 60 pounds and change.)

The hogs that he hunts up here are a total nuisance. They root up potato farmers' crops, attack pets, etc. They live on pecans and deer corn, too, so they are crazy delicious, lol.

One bullet, instant lights out. My husband has never had to shoot twice. I know not everyone is as proficient a sharpshooter as he is, but most true hunters take pride in being cruelty free (that I've known.) That meat in your store? *shudder* That's cruel.

Nov. 23rd, 2009 04:16 pm (UTC)
Eh, I don't actually buy meat at the store, because my kid and my housemate are vegetarians, so I'm plenty willing to keep a vegetarian house. And the meat I was eating at work was Certified Humane which is pretty fucking strict.

Pecans and deer corn? OMG. That's probably even better than Normandy acorns!

So totally want to roast that 60-lb head and serve it whole on a platter, bedecked-with-bay-and-rosemary!

I use the icon in a tongue in cheek capacity.
I dunno, Normandy acorns is so old school/medieval delicious!

I would roast that head and make carnitas, screw the rosemary! (Oooh, or a steer head for barbacoa. Holy crap, that stuff is crazy good.)

Re: I use the icon in a tongue in cheek capacity.
Normandy acorns were, in fact, medieval-delicious. The red wine currant sauce on it didn't hurt either. OMG YUM.

There's a lot of pig there -- probably some should go for char siu?

I already sorta hated them, but now I will never eat marshmallows again.

Wild hog! Do you guys cure your own bacon? I've been wanting to try that.
stoney321
Nov. 23rd, 2009 04:06 pm (UTC)
And I'm sad about it, because I LIKED marshmallows! Woe-face.

We did! Do! Which ever. It took one side to figure it out, the other side was fantastic. (It's all about pouring off the liquid every 8 hours and packing more sea salt on it.) Fantastic stuff, ridiculously easy to accomplish. It's cured in 36 hours, tops. (This is the recipe we started off with. We tweak it with our own spices to taste.)

Thanks for the link. The blog cracked me up and I love his passion for all things bacon!

The Korean market carries pork belly and I thought curing it would be a snap. I just need room in the refrigerator! That's not going to happen until some time in 2010!

Nov. 23rd, 2009 05:14 pm (UTC)
Well now you have a January project! :D I want to try and cook with the whole pork belly someday.

Which reminds me, I wonder what happened to the Marshmallow that used to self-seed all over the rose bed? Probably the same thing that happened to the pastel Papaver rhoes from the same bed; it got weeded the wrong time of year (after the seeds germinated).

There's something at Wikipedia called "OTRS" which is specifically for subjects of articles to complain about inaccuracy or libel in their articles. I know it exists, I don't know how to contact it. Editing onesown real-world stuff runs across all sorts of whacky rules; there's at least one Hollywood producer who hates them on a crazy level.

(mmmmmmmm, venison, lucky you!)

Oooh, I'll look into that on wikipedia. I contacted the producer and director. The dumb guys that did that don't realize that this could get them blackballed. (I also updated my Facebook page which is for all agents, casting directors, etc. that I've worked with, or want to work with. DUMB DUMB DUMB.)

I haven't heard back that they got anything, but there was a 12 point buck rumored to be around there somewhere....

Excuse me for a moment. GOD DAMN IT!!! I didn't realize you were in St. Nick! It just played here at the film festival and I missed it. I went to eight friggin' films last week but not that one! It looked really good too.
::headdesk::::
DAMN IT!!
that is all.
I'll ask the film festival people what the buzz was about that movie.

WOE!!! I even have the poster on my user info page!

I forgot it just played in Denver - I think it was well received. Our producer was there for a Q&A. The kids are with the director in Greece for a festival. AWESOME!!

I never go to your user info page. I did think to myself that I had heard of the movie as I was perusing the films though. But of course since I am such a space cadet these days - I didn't remember WHY I had heard of it.

I am now going to go roast marshMALLOWS over my gas stove because I'm citified like that.

I know there are jackasses out there that trophy hunt, or are as my husband and I call them: two pump chumps with their over-under shotguns they borrowed for the weekend. REAL hunters are incredibly humane, believe in keeping places wild and open and untouched, and are involved in conservation issues (and help track animals for research, etc.)

Mmmm, roasted marshmallows! Except for how it's going to take about nine months before I can smell them and not hurl.

Awesome! I finally get to see the film.
This makes me happy as a little girl who gets happy by watching Indy vampire movies.

I had this long ass comment about how much I will love marshmellows until the end of time but than...
I reread your post and deleted it. ;-)

I'd rather you edit a comment then post something you don't mean. hahaha.

I'm THIS CLOSE to replying to people's posts (or online blogs, etc.) with THAN THAN THAN THAN, not then, OH MY GOD. I don't know why then is so much more common than than. See what I did there? Ahaha.

I'm not saying I don't make mistakes, I clearly do, but there are people who CONTINUALLY get that wrong, which means they don't understand how to use it. Ditto with DEFINATELY. What the hell, Michelle? Why do people want me to cry?

Okay this is totally not related to this post at all, but I'm reading book number 9 in the Sookie Stackhouse series right now, and did you know that Eric Northman's wife's name was Aud? I AM NOT EVEN JOKING WITH THIS SHIT.

Damn, that dressed pork sounds GOOD. I've mentioned this before, but the idea of hunting your own meat sounds appealing - not just for the humane reasons, though that's a big one, but for the taste as well. I would want to be like your husband, though, and take them out in one shot. I wouldn't like to make them suffer.

But since we're lacking for wild hog around Massachusetts, for now I'm making an effort to avoid supermarket meat and shop only from places that I know procure meat from people who raise them cruelty free. I know Halal butchers only allow meat to be killed a certain way, and there's a place in Boston that only sells grass-fed, etc. It's more expensive, but definitely worth it.
stoney321
Nov. 23rd, 2009 06:43 pm (UTC)
My husband trains to kill in one shot. He's a listed sharpshooter with the local IDP gun clubs, though, he's ridiculously good.

You might be surprised at the lack of wild hog in Mass. I wouldn't be surprised to know there's quite a lot in the less populated/farm areas. One generation from the farm is feral - they revert quickly once they escape. :) There could be butcher exchanges, too, not unlike veggie co-ops.

We have a hobby herd of Fallow deer that we harvest about 6 deer from every year. Talk about fork tender and fat!!!! One of the things that is supposed to be so healthy about venison is how lean it is; HA! Our deer just lay around and chew cuds in between stuffing their faces with Speschul Expensive Deer Feed and alfalfa hay. Of course, after feeding the doe during pregnancy, and then the fawn for two years until we harvest it, we figured that came to about $23 a lb,... It tastes like the finest beef, not gamy at all. We have a friend who bow hunts and he takes them out, one shot, right through the center of the heart!

We have a shit-ton of wild pigs around here (Space Coast of Florida,) and not only are they good for eatin' they are also great for surprising your horse when you're out trail riding! After all, a 200 lb pig can surely eat an entire 1500 lb half draft,...

Speaking of your/you're, not only then, than, (which makes me SCREAM at the computer screen!!!!) but also their, there, and they're, and to vs too,...

And I can't spell for crap, so I feel guilty when I get angry about then vs than, but I still get angry,...

Nov. 23rd, 2009 07:32 pm (UTC)
Mmmmmm, venison. We only have white tail in my area, not mule deer so they don't taste gamey at all. You can cut and cook. We bow hunt, too. You shouldn't have to shoot more than once, regardless, yes indeed!

Those feral pigs get mean, though, your horse is smart to not want to get near it, lol!

The best venison I ever had was a 200 pound blacktail spike which lived in the woods behind the cheese plant and fattened on whey and salal berries. It had some marbling, indeed.

(Up here in the diametrically opposite corner of these extensive United States).

After you've seen the movie, watch this review of it: clicky.

Spoony has not read the books so he gets the movie in a slightly different way than we do, but his views are pretty legit. And funny. Especially when he impersonates Jasper.

Wild hog, and deer just makes my mouth water. Also makes me miss my parents home(sorta) and free meat. My dad hunts cruelty free, my parents also have chickens, goats and ducks occasionally a goose or two. So we always had cruelty free yummy meat plus goats milk and fresh eggs.

Ha, I totally appreciate the "stop here!" note. And I stopped! I mean, I did see something about bacon. But I'm going to pretend it's fakin' bacon. *whistles*

I do think hunting can be far more humane than animals crammed into pens and then shoved onto a killing floor.

And man, I haven't seen Curb your Enthusiasm in ages, but that show is so fun.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
