Have a Cookie

My article on community-supported agriculture is up on Cookie! Check it out.

And while you're there, check out the DVD reviews. I just heard about this. Our Netflix cue is usually filled with kid movies -- Lane and I see first-run films so rarely we don't even know what's out there, which is how we ended up with that stinker, The Libertine. More reviews, please!

Oh, so very sorry about The Libertine.

Going to read Cookie! Very exciting!

Brava! I just read it: excellent work. How I love CSAs....

We (almost) never see first-run movies, either. It's just so much cheaper and easier to get them from the library! I just watched Jesus Camp (which kind of made me want to vomit, which attests to how well, not how poorly, it's done), and I'll watch Dreamgirls (a must for me, but probably not for you) in the next few days. Congrats on the article!!

Life without Netflix would really suck, but I manage to request "stinkers" way too often, it seems, so I'll have to check out what seem to be really good reviews in Cookie more often. (Just dumped The Libertine from the queue.)

On another note, your recipes with meat often make me wish I hadn't given it up. I am especially drawn to that pork and enoki dish from a few days back but the chicken in banana leaves looks awesome as well.

I enjoyed your CSA article! Congrats on getting back into paid writing.

Adriana: Sorry to hijack your comments here, but I have to ask JaneAnne about "Jesus Camp"! I just finished seeing this movie and it disturbed me on SO many levels--spiritual, theological, sociological. I found it horrifying. JA: what repulsed/fascinated you the most?

I was going to blog about this movie, then decided not to. Maybe I'll rethink my decision...

Okay, that 9-year-old girl who was going around and witnessing to random people on the street really freaked me out. And the speaking in tongues and falling on the floor convulsing. And the kids (little ones!) weeping with remorse over what were surely pretty minor "sins." And that's just scratching the surface.

Overall it freaked me out that there is this huge segment of America that has such an alien (to me) interpretation of Christian thought, and its translation into politics.

Adriana Velez said...

Thanks, everyone! And I do heartily recommend trying a CSA. Wonderful experience.

KS -- go back to the meat! Heh heh.

Hmm, I guess I need to add Jesus Camp to my queue. And Tewks, I would love to read your comments on it if you do decided to post on it.

Sadly, the only CSAs in our area do citrus. That we have growing in the back yard. Unless we move, I may never see a ramp in real life, let alone taste one. :(

"Jesus Camp" freaked me out--brought back waaay too many memories of Christian parochial school.

We'd already seen the disturbing self-incrimination of Ted Haggard thanks to "The Daily Show," but that was ooky, too.

Love the locavore! The Cookie piece was sweet.

Congratulations on your article Adriana! Very very cool.

I don't have any recent releases suggestions for you movie-wise, but I always suggest anything Baz Luhrman, especially Strictly Ballroom (although I love Moulin Rouge but it may not be for all tastes)

"A life lived in fear is a life half-lived"

Our library is also as well-stocked as the video store, so we nearly never rent films, I will have to check it for Jesus Camp.
