My last post featured a video that bummed me out. But Allen Ginsberg cheered me up!! I know of Allen Ginsberg, but never delved into any of his work too much. But finding myself quite fond of it. Addressing pretty serious issues with humor, music, and a bit edge.
And John Stewart Helped too. He is trying not to make fun of an easy target, Marcus Bachman. It's really funny to me because recently I was sitting at a reception of pretty conservative folks. Among them were extremely conservative church goers & even a minister and his wife. Let's say the general consensus was that being gay was very wrong, being Muslim very wrong, and being a gay Muslim?? Forget it! The funny part, my gaydar was on overload. The depressing part, these folks had themselves convinced that there was one "right" way to be "Good with God" and it involved only their brand of Christianity (forget any other religion) and it did not involve being Gay. However, 3 out of the 4 men at the table were very gay.....especially the minister. But Matt & Trey cheered me up.
And My Big Gay Ginger Cinnamon Lime Balls Cheered me up too!
From the Raw Food book of Erica Palmcrantz and Irmela Lilja.
Raw Food: A Complete Guide for Every Meal of the Day
These balls were great!! A nice change from the usual chocolate, hemp, etc...balls that I always seem to make. The book is fabulous too. Erica and Irmela are Swedish and there are lots of beautiful photos. Recipes are slightly different than a lot of the Raw Food books in the States. They seem more simple and more based on lots of veggies. I don't there were any really extended, complicated recipes that required you to look at 3 other pages just to "prepare" the ingredients for one dish!
So the giner lime cinnamon balls were great, but didn't make up for all the hate talk flying around these days. But Matt & Trey sure do their darndest!!!
I know, there are some date haters out there. But check out this NutritionFacts.Org Video created by Dr. G. Apparently Dates aren't the Satanic Beast that some Raw Foodists have made them out to be! Not meaning to say to just eat 4 pounds of dates a day..........but it did make me feel slightly better about my raw cookies. I'm just not the wheatgrass guzzlin', green juice drinking, 90 day juice feasting kind of striving to be breatharian yet......Anyhoot. A short video below, and follow the link really, if you too are slightly bummed out about the "current" affairs. Funny, you would think that most of the politicians are too busy having their own private illicit affairs to be too concerned with what everyone else is doing in their bedroom, or gasp, in other rooms of the house. Don't forget, Wet or Dry Dates, they are okay.
