Mourn Not the Good Old Days, Because They’re Kind of New Again.

Oct 26, 2017 47

The pleasures of vinyl are something special, and it’s little wonder that Your Humble Narrator never gave up on the format. Even when it started to become problematic getting replacement parts for a turntable, ways were discovered to keep my groove – literally and figuratively – going. And now, we mercifully reside in an era when vinyl is storming back into favor, because people are starting to discover all the joyful aspects of it: cover art that acts as ART, and that you can actually SEE. Liner notes that are legible. And that “warmth” thing with the sound that all your record geek friends were gassing on about? Ends up it was true, and it had a little science behind it. Of course there were other less convenient aspects that were part of the experience, but it was all part of the love affair.

Monty Python Didn’t Like Spam. I Don’t Like Eggs.

Oct 19, 2017 53

So, needless to say, I feel a little put upon that practically every place that serves breakfast insists on serving eggs with almost everything. I really just want a couple of pieces of bacon, and some fried potatoes – why should I have to go a la carte all the dang time? This is an old article, but the fine folks at Buzzfeed have compiled a selection of eggless breakfast items that sound tasty and wonderful. Even if you don’t hate eggs, there are some nice possibilities here. Take a look. – Todd Berryman Middays on WIN 104.9 Savoring the Flavoring of Pork ...

Nope. This Time it’s the OTHER Selena…

Oct 17, 2017 38

(image: screen capture from Google.com) Nope. This Time it’s the OTHER Selena…as in, not Gomez. It comes down to history about one of the musical superstars that almost opened up the culture across the board, before her life was tragically cut short. Selena Quintanilla-Pérez was a star on the ascendancy, and then it was all over before it began. Today, Google has decided to remember her with an animation about her life, for starters…but it’s not her birthday, or the day we lost her, so why TODAY? The answer is right here. – Todd Berryman Middays on WIN 104.9 Wanders Off, Singing “God’s Child” Under His Breath ...

The Most Wonderful Time/Of the Year! (Christmas? NOOOO.)

Oct 12, 2017 61

pictured above: feijoada, practically a national dish in Brazil As long as I’ve lived in Columbus at various times in my life, the Ethnic Expo is one of my favorite times of the year, like another holiday got added just before Halloween. 🙂 I know that I’ll have a catalog of favorites that I’ll visit every year – the sausages from one of the Philippines booths, the meat-on-a-stick from Vietnam, baklava from the Greek tent, wonderful German almonds from this truck – and then there will invariably be one new discovery that makes me fall in love with it all over again. And that’s why I keep coming back, year after year after year: the simultaneous loves of comfort and new discovery.

Todd’s Missing His Aunt Frieda. So, This.

Oct 10, 2017 63

You ever get one of those sudden, inexplicable cravings from your past, one of those things you didn’t necessarily like so much when you were younger, and then years later, you miss it? That’s what’s going on here for me. My old high school used to make no-bake cookies, and in retrospect they were pretty good – well, as much as I cared for them at the time, anyway. It took my late great-aunt Frieda to change my mind about no-bake cookies, just because they were so good. For me, it’s been a good few decades since I had them from the hand of the master, and so now I’m thinking in terms of “who might have a good recipe that will open up the cave of memory?” This recipe looks like it’s got some potential… – Todd Berryman Middays on WIN 104.9 Stand Back, Y’all!
