the best raw cow is 'thai tartare'.. ask don...

By Treeman5 on Wednesday, December 13, 2000 - 12:40 am: Edit

So what, I like corsets and carnivores.

By Black_rabbit on Tuesday, December 12, 2000 - 04:37 pm: Edit

Out for sushi the other day, we wanted something called 'beef tataki.' The chef didn't know what we were talking about, so we said 'raw beef.' He got the most amazed, disgusted look on his face and said 'raw beef?!?!?'

I wonder if he will ever appreciate the irony? Maybe after someone takes him to a steakhouse and he asks what they mean by 'rare.'

mmm...cooooow...[drool]

Treeman5,
Close. I'm more of a green, pagan, meat-eating, pseudo new-romantic-goth-on-weekends, with a big bag of Perruche sugar cubes.

The meat-eating is _very_ important. (I love my cow)

I don't know about an absinthe "soaked belly button with a sugar cube in the middle" but I'll have some of Bjork's sugary nectar in my Absinthe any day (and it would do away with the need for a spoon).

Just thought I'd bring the thread back on topic, this is the absinthe forum after all.

By Perruche_verte on Tuesday, December 12, 2000 - 12:41 pm: Edit

Oh lord n' lady. Now it's gone from sugar to sex with cartoon characters to hitting on real live people you only know as names on a BB. Smooth, Treeman.

Are you guys drinking?

By Pikkle on Tuesday, December 12, 2000 - 12:37 pm: Edit

Yes, the meat eating part is important... as
well as drizzling water over an absinthe
soaked belly button with a sugar cube in the
middle and then lapping it all up... my idea of a
fine time indeed...

By Treeman5 on Tuesday, December 12, 2000 - 12:32 pm: Edit

Make mine an anarchist, pagan, meat-eating, psychopathic punk chick, with a big bag of Perruche sugar cubes...Is that you Corsetgirl?
Oh hey on another topic, just back from Xmas shopping, watch out for knock-off Nintendo GameBoy cassettes(Pokemon Gold and Silver)nfg..

Blackjack, make that anarchist pagan lesbian Jews (or gentiles actually) and you've found my Achilles heel... unfortunately I'm physically challenged when it comes to their needs but I've found one or two that would swing my way at least temporarily... ;-)

Ani DiFranco is so hot. I love her collaborations with Utah Phillips (which are mostly Ani playing in the studio with live recordings of Utah).

By _blackjack_ on Tuesday, December 12, 2000 - 11:14 am: Edit

Oh, I do. My type, specifically, are lesbian pagan jews...

By Pikkle on Tuesday, December 12, 2000 - 10:52 am: Edit

Kate Bush is a witch... I don't go that way... heh
heh....

By Kippie on Monday, December 11, 2000 - 09:05 pm: Edit

Hello everybody, I've been lurking for a few weeks and haven't had anything to speak up about because I'm brand new the whole absinthe thing. I can add something about cartoons and Bjork though. The guys at Spumco(The Ren and Stimpy show) did a video for Bjork in their trademark animation style. It's worth checking out.

By Thegreenimp on Monday, December 11, 2000 - 05:21 pm: Edit

Since we are indulging in the fantasy realm, instead of Bjork, I would subsitute Kate Bush, who could qualify for smurfdom due to her rather short stature.....(and she can out doe eye Bambi's mom any day)........

"Bambi's mother... bring it on!!!"

oh yeah! how can you say no to those big brown eyes?

By _blackjack_ on Monday, December 11, 2000 - 01:32 pm: Edit

We are bad, bad men.

By Pikkle on Monday, December 11, 2000 - 12:09 pm: Edit

Wanna go one further up the bizzare scale???
Bambi's mother... bring it on!!!

By Pikkle on Monday, December 11, 2000 - 12:08 pm: Edit

Any version of Björk is my dream girl...
Icelandic chix merely rule, in a sophisticated
sort of way I suppose...

Blackjack: FOUL! FOUL!! No one gave any clearance for non-derogatory mention of contemporary Disney products. I hereby issue you a dozen demerit points. Now, go shave and trim your nails, and report to the Small World Reprogramming Annex immediately.

By Bob_chong on Monday, December 11, 2000 - 10:42 am: Edit

I guess it's not much of a leap to go from paying fifty bucks for sugar to talking about having sex with catoon characters.

rogue from the xmen,or maybe april from the ninja turtles,this is a very bizzare thread,maybe absinthe really does drive people mad

By _blackjack_ on Monday, December 11, 2000 - 09:06 am: Edit

Belle from Disney's Beauty and the Beast...

...or maybe Kitty Pryde from the X-men...

OK, now I feel dirty.

I once had a crush on a girl who had served as the model for Elmyra's older sister on Tiny Toon Adventures.

By Black_rabbit on Monday, December 11, 2000 - 08:36 am: Edit

Now this is a thread.

Cleo from Heathcliff.

Never thought of Smurfette that way, though.

Bjork, yes, Smurfette, no. Well, maybe the bad Smurfette, in a pinch.

So, Pikkle, are you saying a cartoon version of Bjork would more or less be your dream girl?

By Anatomist1 on Sunday, December 10, 2000 - 09:53 pm: Edit

Oh, come on. Shelley Duval as Olive Oyle is one thing, but who'd want to have it off with that shreiking stick figure in her animated incarnations? Does anybody know what was up with that giant, amazon gooney-woman? Was sweet-pea the illegitimate child of bizarre extraterrestrial freaks?

Now, I would say Jane Jetson was definitely hot, but even if you managed to get away with excessive frindliness in the Jetson flat, you'd be foiled by Elroy's camera that can take snapshots of the past. Besides, by then all sex will take place via computers, and be accessed through bio-neural implants. Not yours of course, but whatever carrier-being you had managed to scrape up the funds to download your consciousness into for five or ten minutes. "Take a corporeal holliday!", the brochure said....

By Pikkle on Sunday, December 10, 2000 - 07:16 pm: Edit

And there was always Olive Oyle... Popeye
was the man!

Kryzsztof Kieslowski is the director of "Blue" which is part of a trilogy that includes the films
"Red" and "White". He also directed a 10 hour film called "The Dekalog". I admire his films more than like them. His films deal with characters who are struggling with their emotions
and their inability to express their feelings. Like many Eastern European filmmakers, his style is cool and dispassionate with sudden outbursts of anger and rage.

By Anatomist1 on Sunday, December 10, 2000 - 05:46 pm: Edit

Oh yeah... and as far as cartoon characters to have sex with, I put Captain Liela of FUTURAMA on top, followed by Betty Rubble.

K.

By Pikkle on Sunday, December 10, 2000 - 05:45 pm: Edit

I never really listened to the Sugar Cubes, I
just like Björk... and as for smurfs, who here
can honestly say they never had any fantasies
about Smurfette, blue tan and all???

By Anatomist1 on Sunday, December 10, 2000 - 05:39 pm: Edit

Now THIS is obviously the thread to get in on... girls in corsets scheming to by sugar at 1,000,000% of wholesale, guys talkin' about what chicks and cartoon characters they'd like to bang... ahh, I thought the chem-eggheads had completely taken over.

Actually, I thought the Sugarcubes pretty much blew even with Bjork: way, WAY, too schproingy for me. And, why did all electonic instrumentation sound like it was made with $99 Casio keyboards in the eighties?

I just saw one of those lozenge-shaped sugar cubes in the movie BLUE, a french movie by that polish guy whose name I can't pronounce, with Juliette Binoche. She holds the cube at one end and slowly dips the other into her coffee. It pretty much fills the screen as it gradually soaks up the liquid and turns brown. Very sensuous. For those of you developing a sugar lozenge fetish, this should be like porn. Actually, I'd say it's the least of the reasons why one should rent this excellent film.

Speaking of lozenges, beware:

I don't think I could have sex with Bjork. She's too cute. It would be like shagging a smurf.

She is mighty talented tho.

By Pikkle on Sunday, December 10, 2000 - 08:25 am: Edit

Okay, well, she can bear my children then...
only I don't want to know about it.

By Lordhobgoblin on Sunday, December 10, 2000 - 06:11 am: Edit

Don't know about marrying her but I could think of a few other uses for her...

By Pikkle on Sunday, December 10, 2000 - 05:43 am: Edit

Björk is the only woman I can say I'd marry
'sight unseen.'

By Petermarc on Sunday, December 10, 2000 - 04:24 am: Edit

this could be your lucky day, in hell...

By Marc on Sunday, December 10, 2000 - 12:32 am: Edit

The Sugar Cubes have never been the same since Bjork left.

I went to the Aladdin Hotel tonight and saw Prince
perform. He played all his hits. For a couple of hours, Vegas shifted from Hell to Paradise.

It's a full moon over the neon jungle.

By Pikkle on Saturday, December 09, 2000 - 10:40 am: Edit

well, if you have any surplus, perhaps I could
take some off your hands... let me know.

By Corsetgirl on Saturday, December 09, 2000 - 09:48 am: Edit

nah I was actually a little disappointed with la Perruche sugar cubes. :) I'll just hold out til I get 2-3 friends who want to stockpile sugar with me. Maybe I'll hint that the office should be restocked with cubes instead of those tacky little packets. hmm

Rose

By Pikkle on Saturday, December 09, 2000 - 09:26 am: Edit

There's no where local to you to get la
Perruche cubes? I could buy them here and
priority mail them to you for cheaper than that...
btw, how much sugar do you really need?

By Corsetgirl on Saturday, December 09, 2000 - 08:52 am: Edit

I should add that when I pay $10 for la Perruche cubes that includes shipping. (grr why does *everyone* ship UPS ground?)

By Corsetgirl on Saturday, December 09, 2000 - 08:50 am: Edit

It not the money that bothers me, after all it's $10 for a box of la Perruche cubes, and you only get 200/box, but what would I do with that much sugar? I'm planning on asking around, seeing if any of my friends wants some sugar cubes. Maybe my weird coworker that buys several pounds of sugar when he goes to france.

Rose

By Pikkle on Saturday, December 09, 2000 - 06:53 am: Edit

If you can find them, the A la Perruche are a
very nice pure cane sugar cube. They too are
a bit pricey but they might be good for
impressing your date... I get them for 5 bucks
a box at the Whole Foods near me but I'm
always looking for a cheaper source...

By Petermarc on Saturday, December 09, 2000 - 12:57 am: Edit

but bob, they're imported from france and one of a kind...curse them, they screwed my whole sugar tablet scheme...at half the price!

By Bob_chong on Friday, December 08, 2000 - 11:59 pm: Edit

PV:

"For now I may stick to good old C&H. Could someone explain to me what the thrill really is about these sugar tablets?"

Word.

Also, if anyone is spending $50 for a box of sugar, I have a bridge I'd like to sell you. Or how about some vacation property in the Everglades?

Half a c-note for a box of sugar would make even Bettina blush. Either that or envy the hell out of the website...

By Perruche_verte on Friday, December 08, 2000 - 10:01 pm: Edit

Wow, what a find. Thanks for the URL.

Apparently one can only buy them by the case of 900 though, which is a bit of an investment (over $50 if I read correctly). For now I may stick to good old C&H.

Could someone explain to me what the thrill really is about these sugar tablets? Do they dissolve that much better? I suppose it's one of those things you have to try to understand, but humor me.

Domino is apparently still involved in a very bitter labor dispute which resembles the Staley or Detroit News strikes, for those of you who follow such things. The problem is that they were bought out by a British firm that is more interested in playing the markets than making sugar.

By Corsetgirl on Friday, December 08, 2000 - 03:30 pm: Edit

After searching for months on end I've found a source of sugar cubes. Those elusive lozenged-shaped-wrapped sugar cubes!

Happy shopping guys!
