That doesn't sound bad. But I tell people, I wouldn't be surprised if they wanted to put green chile on ice cream.

The antidote to the mouth-burning of green chiles: Eat something sweet. That's why NM restaurants have a jar of honey on the table as part of the setups, salt, pepper, etc. Chocolate works too.

Honestly, I think a hamburger with some spicy chilies sounds pretty good. Wouldn't want too many of 'em, but it would do well. Kinda like how a very peppery pepper jack cheese does very well on a burger.

I was startled by that the first time I went to NM. Also that a sopaipilla is pretty much a Nawlins beignet minus the powdered sugar.

My first visit to NM was in May of '92, so it's been quite a while. A culture shock for me -- but I loved it. I immediately began planning to find a job and move there. I came close: Denver. The last time I was in Albuquerque or Santa Fe was about 2000. I miss the landscape, the scent of sage after a rain, the good roads (compared to Lousy-ana, anyway), and lots of other things. A shame it's become a blue pesthole.

72 I have never heard of this artist but I quite like his work. There is a simplicity in the image with blocks of soft color against a simple blended background. It reminds me of Japanese ink and color prints I've seen. The tenderness of the mother towards her child reinforces the simple, gentle color scheme. The bright, rather realistic basket and peppers makes a nice contrast. Very appealing.

128 Daily Mail has revealed that between 1993-1995, the now-deceased convicted pedophile Jeffery Epstein brought a total of eight young women to the White House while he was meeting with then-president Bill Clinton.

Previous visitor logs from the White House have confirmed Epstein visited the White House a total of 17 times. His first visit to the White House was in 1993, shortly after Bill Clinton was inaugurated, and after that day he visited the White House 16 more times and also brought young women as guests.

I am a big fan of the green chipotle hot sauce for eggs, especially Cholula's version of it. I've spent time in Taos and I am not sure I'd every want anything from there in my home. They have an obsession with stucco so complete that they even stucco the lamp posts. If I had Taos goods in my home, I'd fear that my house slowly become stucco'd from inside to out, originating from whatever cabinet the thing was stored in...

On average, Americans' political party preferences in 2021 looked similar to prior years, with slightly more U.S. adults identifying as Democrats or leaning Democratic (46%) than identified as Republicans or leaned Republican (43%).

BUT, if you look at the trend instead of the average, you see a 14 point swing from Dems to GOP over the course of the year. GOP now leads by 5%.

225 O/T, music question.

I just saw that "Mysterious Ways" by U2 was on top of the Billboard "Alternative Airplay" chart for nine weeks from the end of 1991 into 1992.

Now, I know that this was a smash hit and its chart performance is not surprising. That said, why this chart? By what standard is that song - or anything by U2 - "alternative?" I'm puzzled as hell because if U2 is "alternative" then anything can be and the distinction is meaningless - even at the time when alternative was a major music phenomenon.

Probably is an artifact of their earlier days before they hit it big. Alternative rock radio played a lot of U2 in the early to mid 80s. Before they became YUUUGE. So those stations were still playing U2 when Achtung Baby came out in late 1991.

I used to listen to 99.1 WHFS alt rock station in the Baltimore / DC area. They played U2 quite a bit.

Well, I'll take a guess. U2-Achtung Baby was a much different album than all of the previous U2 albums. A lot different actually. You can thank Brian Eno for that. That's the only thing I can think of. I'm a bit biased as Achtung Baby is my favorite album from U2.

Now you've given me a problem, Doof. As a result of this comment, I now have a song lyric stuck in my head. I can't remember how it starts, but it ends with "but he's big in Japan" (or she, or I - I don't rightly remember the pronoun). I can even remember the tune and cadence of the lyric.

But I can't remember the song, or any other words in it, and "big in Japan" is such a common phrase that I can't even search for it well. What's worse, I know that I have that song in my library but I don't remember enough of how it sounds to narrow it down. Now I'm going to go bonkers until I forget it again, because it's really nagging at me and I have no way to find the answer. I can't even search through my local library lyrics, because most songs don't have lyrics tagged to them yet (that's something I've been working on intermittently for years).

So yeah. You've ruined my day through no fault of your own.

Good question, Mannix. I know they tried to go all artsy after the success of the Joshua Tree album/concerts and Rattle and Hum movie. From a 2014 article at Salon entitled "How U2 became the most hated band in America ( https://tinyurl.com/2p8k6f8s ):"

Although CBC cites "Discotheque" (from Pop, U2's much-derided experiment in excess) as the moment the public turned on them, it was most likely Apple that did U2 in. The wide success of 1991's Achtung Baby launched a decade-long experiment by the band into art rock, as Bono attempted to bring the avant garde into the mainstream. Although 1993's Zooropa won the Grammy for Best Alternative Album, Bono never wanted U2 to be an "alternative" (read: niche) group, your vinyl-hoarding friend's favorite band.

Achtung Baby! is a period CD for me. I was stationed in the UK in 1990. That album came out in '91 and got lots of airplay when I was there. I had it on cassette first and played the hell out of it. Wore the tape out. Bought a CD player just because of it. Bought the CD of course.

Hatch chilies are available elsewhere, but usually in small quantities. Out west, you can get big #10 cans of them almost anywhere. We had a family friend who would buy a case of them whenever she came out west to visit because she couldn't get them reliability back east.

Unfortunately, I'd say that the Twitter quote isn't wrong. The Voting Rights Act and the War On Poverty legislation passed because of MLK, but he was still alive when that happened. MLK was pivoting to Vietnam and larger societal issues when he was assassinated, so those didn't have enough traction to have his death change much. Floyd, on the other hand, was instrumental in turning our cities into crime-ridden hellholes - by choice - and it helped scare LIVs into thinking that voting for POOTUS would make the violence stop. We know how that has turned out, so far.

This is an incredible amount of horseshit. Dr. King's message was an incredibly powerful one, however, it doesn't fit the narrative of division and racism, so that message has been bludgeoned to death and is no longer used.
