Re: Cooking

That works too! In the US we call it a broiler, in UK and I think other Commonwealth nations it's a grill.

Re: Cooking

I dust the peel with corn meal and assemble my pizza directly on it.

Yeah I've been having fun with Spitfire Labs stuff for years but I don't think I've ever actually finished a track with it.

Re: Cooking

Oops, I coulda sworn I replied to that. Yeah, get a pizza peel, you can get them at restaurant suppliers or off Amazon or whatever.

Also I use a cast-iron baking pan which I preheat along with the oven, which makes the crust way better than I ever got with a baking stone.

Fiona was a rescue stray and is a bit of a selfish pig when it comes to food. I can totally see her just eating the mice and keeping the fun to herself.

Re: My Life

Mouse update: aside from the very brief moment I saw it crawl out from under a shelving unit (and then scurry back under), I haven't seen any evidence of it. None of the traps have gone off, I'm seeing no mouse droppings, and there's been no more mysterious fuzzy things brushing against my feet. I'v...

Re: My Life

I just use less sugar. The point is to cut down on the sweetness, and artificial sweetener is WAY sweeter than real sugar. I generally just use half-and-half and heavy cream, sugar, and flavorings, or sometimes I'll do a custard base but that's a lot of work. I actually haven't made proper ice cream...

I also got diagnosed with a chronic illness recently, and that’s taken some time to get used to—it’s been a stressful time. Oh jeeze, I missed this on the first read of your post.

Re: My Life

Yeah steel wool is what I used back in NYC, but I had physical access to the gaps. The way my kitchen is set up I don't actually have gap access, it's in a wall that's hidden behind my cabinets and filling the gaps would require tearing my whole kitchen apart.

Re: Song Fight Live Online 2020

It's almost August. What ideas do people have about how we're going to do this? I'm sort of planning on maybe doing a basic live set on Twitch, but I also have a much more ambitious idea involving a lot of video editing and actual sockpuppets.

Re: Circle of Titles - The Return

FWIW both of the titles I received were pretty good but I just couldn’t think of anything to do with either of them. So I decided I’d just like. Do a song about nothing. There’s sort of a kernel of an idea about maybe a mental health thing but I didn’t want to lean into it too much since that’s like...

Re: My Life

I saw a mouse in my studio last night, and my cats seemed completely disinterested. So today I've set up a bunch of mouse traps all over my studio and kitchen. This was after feeling something fuzzy brush against my feet yesterday which wasn't my cat, so. I hope it's just the one but realistically t...

Well if folks are going to enter late I guess I can keep working on my song a bit tomorrow. Not that I expect it to get any better, but whatever.

I am only slightly closer to being done now than when I was stressed about the deadline being last week.

Unfortunately there’s been lawsuits filed against B&H both for unsafe warehouse practices and for religious discrimination against non-Jewish employees. Plus something about exploiting Mexican workers. https://www.jpost.com/diaspora/new-lawsuit-claims-b-and-h-discriminates-against-non-jewish-employe...

Re: Collecting royalties

Yeah ASCAP does the signup-for-life thing too. Which is a big part of why I regret signing up for it.

I mean technically you can quit but they sure don't make it easy to do.
