Wishing you a very happy holiday season...stay warm and enjoy the new year!

Testing The Fairly New AudioBlogger Service

Once I get this handy audio tool figured out, visit often to get On The Road wht Unity Stoakes audio updates. I am in the process of wading through all of the various podcasting services and tools out there now. Unfortuantely, they none of them are very good unless you simply want to post an audio file. No one is offering subscribtion management tools yet which seems crazy to me. Afterall, we don't all want to include advertising in our podcasts and some of us may want to still make money off of our premium content. If you come across any great podcasting services let me know.

For anyone was ever a fan of the Beasties, pays attention to music culture, or just wants a good laugh you should check this video out:

Initially, this mock Narnia rap video caught me off guard. My first thought was, here's antoher lame sketch from Saturday Night Live. But after about 20 seconds I couldn't stop laughing.

Cauliflower Is The New Black

This may sound ridiculous, but in my estimation cauliflower is the new black. My bet is that soon trendy restaurants everywhere will start offering this often forgotten vegi. Why? I'm not sure exactly, but I just feel it.

Yes, I know, most give this bland and often tasteless vegetable short shrift. Many don't even know what it is. Others call it the poor man's broccoli.

Not in my kitchen!

Here's a little recipe that I promise will power charge any cauliflower no matter how bland and change your mind about this incredibly underrated vegetable.

1 head cauliflower
healthy dose of salted butter
fresh garlic
fresh cracked pepper
soy sauce
Parmesan cheese
Tabasco sauce

Cast iron skillet
Sharp knife

Heat pan and season with a few dabs of salted butter. Toss in bite-sized chunks of cauliflower and saute to coat each piece with butter. Throw in diced garlic and cover everything with cracked pepper, a few splashes of soy sauce, and a healthy dose of Tabasco. Cover skillet and stir every few minutes to brown cauliflower (about 15 minutes). Two minutes before serving, coat each piece with cheese and melt to a crusted finish.

This is the perfect side dish for steak, pork chops, or as a tapas style snack. For added kick, experiment by adding fresh jalepeno peppers, curry or your other favorite spices. And be liberal with the Tobasco too.

Read This Book!

If you are at all interested in marketing communications or better understanding modern day politics then I highly recommend you pick up a copy of "Don't think of an Elephant" by George Lakoff. His elegant package of essays is the best explanation I have read yet about the differences between modern day Republicans and Democrats. More importantly, he explains the how and why both parties are positioned the way they are presently, and he outlines a clear plan to enable progressives to frame the debate and communicate their values in a way that ordinary people can actually understand.
