Oakland. Jesus. I barely have words to express the horror and grief. It hits close to home; one of the victims was someone I met this summer in Calgary. Joel from Golden Donna is from Madison, he’s a stalwart of the local arts scene, and he’s a friend. I can’t even imagine the heartbreak Joel’s […]
It’s weird. I’m at a bit of a loss about what to say about David Bowie’s death. I’ve never been a “superfan”, but I always had a massive amount of admiration for the man. I guess the best I can do is talk about what he and his art meant to me personally.
Another year, another trip to Sweetwater’s GearFest in the sweltering Indiana sun. This year I guess they had nearly as many attendees as Summer NAMM, which is fairly impressive. Especially considering the frequent and unpredictable massive downpours that would occasionally shutter the gear tents and send attendees running for shelter. My agenda this year was […]
Dan and I schlepped down to scenic Fort Wayne, Indiana this past weekend to attend Sweetwater Gearfest. It’s our third trip, and it’s always a good time. Basically, mega-music-gear retailer Sweetwater (which, we discovered is now the 5th largest in the world) turns over their buildings and parking lots into massive gear tents and seminar […]
My first attempts, making guanciale out of a hog jowl and a slab of duck prosciutto, were…of mixed success. The prosciutto was decent but too salty and the guanciale got a little too dry during curing. My next attempt, I thought, would be something a little simpler, bresaola. It worked pretty splendidly.
Over the weekend, I built a tandoor. In retrospect, I probably overengineered it. It’s a heavy, rolling clay oven that I likely could’ve accomplished almost as well with a Weber kettle and a little cleverness. But still, having a nice, big, bespoke “oven” for making kebobs and naan is pretty neat. A bit of a […]
Just want to point out that leftover BandBQ flank steak, when paired with cilantro, onion and lime, makes one helluva tasty taco. Sliced thin, reheated, wrapped in a warm corn tortilla, with a little good mexican hot sauce on the side for garnish. This is gunna be a repeater. I have this sneaking suspicion that […]
Here at Null Device Media Industries, in addition to churning out dance music, we’ve always had a fondness for good food. We’ve never been one of those bands that loads the van with chips and PBR, we’re the band that rolls out on tour with a cooler full of vegetables from local farmers markets and […]
