  1. any uncooked or undercooked mammal or fowl

  3. Getting (back) on MTC2 was a bit tricky.  Had to key in everything manually, and use the current display name instead of the account name.  The saved logon info also had to be erased and retyped, otherwise it wouldn't let me in.  I think I've gotten the hang of it, though.

    It also looks like this, and the last activity dates from late May.  Good to be back there.

  4. Haha the only "hunting" I do is at the meat section of the store. Some people I know tell me it's a most rewarding experience, but I'm quite happy with eating something I didn't have to chase down and/or fight first. Also, my teeth don't get on well with buckshot or 7.62 slugs. 😜 On the other thing. if the guv'mint wants to give me a booster shot on top of the one I just had, I say jab me as many times as it takes. I haven't been out without a mask and that pesky shield since that bug started going around. Haven't eaten out, cut my own hair with clippers, scissors and a hand mirror. I don't think I can go back to old habits even if that ****ing germ goes away. Anyway, don't want to depress or bore you with my fears. Have a great one!
  5. Hi again. Venison was one of those meats I'd always wanted to try, and when the meat shop near our old place offered farm-raised venison in tapa cuts, I snapped it up. Took me several tries to get it right, though. Even farm-raised venison was tough with a wild herby flavor. The marinated bistek was leathery and tasted weird, but the dog loved it. Try #2 was marinated and tenderized tapa, garlicked up the yingyang with toasted crushed garlic, ala pobre. Likewise the dog was its biggest fan. Try #3 was the winner. It was ground coarse with sage, ginger, pepper, salt and rosemary, shaped into thick tubes and sliced into patties like breakfast sausage. Well done on both sides, it was really good, for my tastes anyway. Hope you and yours are doing well over there amidst the amber waves. Stay safe, and stay awesome. 😊
  6. Narnia, Hardy Boys, local NBS compilations of Marvel titles
  7. Sa tingin ko lang, the industry is still in the doldrums or a holding pattern. The removal from the scene of a major broadcast studio and the chilling effect of the pandemic have much to do with this. I also think that when the country starts picking itself up, the entertainment industry will follow. But they won't lead the way, because they are subject to the same forces and conditions as the rest of us. The last movie I saw that put a good faith effort on excellence was Goyo. It wasn't perfect, but it hit all the points it wanted to make. Its big shortcoming is also one it shares with many works of cinema or literature, in that it tries to speak for everyone, for all time. It would have been much better imho if it just identified its particular p.o.v. and defended it successfully. Or maybe that was the point they wanted to make in the first place. Pasong Tirad was a heroic effort, but ultimately a failed defense.
  8. BTW, I see nothing wrong whatsoever with your English (or your Tagalog, for that matter.) If the grammar nazis start circling, send them all to Nuremburg! Have a great day.
  9. I for one think it's sad when parents try to create their own narrative instead of observing and/or communicating, then working from there. I don't think they're consciously meaning to manipulate the situation. It just looks like they're unfamiliar with their daughter's culture and are trying to "control" the response. Everyone is lucky that awkwardness is as far as it got.
  10. Hi First, I love this blog and have begun following it after reading one entry. Also, is it really hard to live in and maintain an old farmhouse and its acreage when there are only two of you, and you live in the middle of Children of the Cornland? For myself, I love the idea of an idyllic solitude in some expansive countryside, but balk at the prospect of spending hours upon hours of treating old wood, mending shingles, riding a mower, maintaining hundreds of yards of drive, etc. Anyway, it's a delight reading your stuff. Take care and stay awesome.
  11. My favorite is still Subaru for the 6th year running. But am seriously considering BMW for the next one.
