As Of Late, This Is How We Do. . .

You may or may not have noticed, there has been a significant lack of posts from us. The reason being. . .we've been crazy busy.

A lot of the craziness is due to planning all of the festivities surrounding our wedding -- however, we must admit that the process has been surprisingly seamless. It's hard to believe that we are getting married exactly 4 weeks from today! In our true procrastinatory nature, to acknowledge this fast approaching date, this afternoon we finally had the opportunity to purchase our wedding bands :)
This past weekend, we were out of town (in Naples, where we will be wed, hence the pics we took above), this week we had The Flaming Lips Film on Tuesday (which was quite unique, to say the least! Props to Music Saves and The Beachland), the Bar Cento Blogger Meet Up on Thursday (Special thanks to Alexa, Chef's Widow, and The Chef himself). Due to the fact that we've not been able to just hang out and do nothing, that is what is on the agenda this evening*

We are going to cook, listen to music (obviously), drink, and watch a movie -- four of our most favorite activities:

On "tap" this evening, 12 Dogs of Christmas Ale from the awesome Akron Brewery, Thirsty Dog
Zucchini Parmesan Crisps [Recipe]
Jose thinks these are the sh*t!
Chicken and Mushroom Quesadillas [Recipe]
Ladies & Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains [1981]

After reading reviews about this film via some of our favorite mags (Venus, Under The Radar, and Interview), we decided to check out this cult classic, originally released the year Kelly was born and just recently released on dvd, features a young Diane Lane and Laura Dern in an all girl punk band. There are also performances by Steve Jones and Paul Cook (of The Sex Pistols), Paul Simonon (of The Clash), and Fee Waybill (of The Tubes). Not to mention, it was directed by Lou Adler who also happened to produce The Rocky Horror Picture Show.


Just a sampling of some superb tunes that we've had the pleasure of listening to while writing this post. . .

[Mp3] Damien Jurado - Abilene A beautiful song we seemed to have overlooked throughout the years
[Mp3] Fiction Company - Design Sounds like Beck, The Napoleon Dynamite OST is full of all kinds of fun surpsises
[Mp3] Nina Simone - Feeling Good We cannot wait to check out her Anthology that just came out a few weeks ago
[Mp3] The Stills - Love & Death A favorite from a band we both have soft spots for, even though their last couple albums have been sub-par
[Mp3] The Whitest Boy Alive - Golden Cage All we know is, Norwegian white boys (aka Erlend Øye) can definitely bring the funk!

Any time you guys want to come over and cook that kind of deliciousness for me, you are totally welcome. I'll just stand around and say complimentary things.
