I can't speak to the authenticity, but the Pad Kee Mao today from the "I Like Thai Food" cart (10th and Alder) was perfection. Ingredients were amazing and fresh, flavors were balanced, and the heat was thru the roof! Bonus points for no mushrooms (default!).
I especially love their spice scale:
I know I've had their food a few other times...but I can't ever remember it being this good. Wow.

I finally watched Treevenge in its whopping 15-ish minute entirety tonight. It's been on my list for a while, but at work some of us are on a horror recommendation frenzy and it kinda semi prompted me to revisit some stuff hanging off the old to-watch list.
I loved Hobo. Treevenge is awesome...but that music....it bothered me. No wait, it disturbed me in a grusome and deeply familiar way...but I searched for maybe 10 or 30 minutes and the lazyweb didn't yield. Then it came to me.

Long, drawn out, simple in its execution. By the 5-minute mark I had my head bobbing, and by 11 minutes...I had my soul dissected and impounded by the UFO cult.
And that was just the first track from the A side! Solid, inspiring stuff from the early 80s.

Reinvigorates my desire to do grassroots street recording, interviews, exploration. I vowed to field record once a month. Starting that again.
Am I conscious of the fact that I can see wider than higher? Does it bother me that there's more horizontal crap to deal with than vertical crap? If I stop, wherever I am, right now, and try to see wider than taller, does it even make sense to my monkey brain?
