Bonnie Tyler - Lost in France (1976)

Las leyes del consumismo se veen reflejadas en los gustos culinarios.

Issei Sagawa: While taking classes at the famed Sorbonne, Issei Sagawa, the son of a wealthy Tokyo industrialist, invited fellow student Renee Hartevelt to his apartment to discuss literature. Once the unsuspecting "dinner guest" arrived, the slightly-built Sagawa shot her in the back of the neck, had sex with her corpse, and started nibbling on her nose and part of a breast. "It had no smell or taste, and melted in my mouth like raw tuna," he wrote in In the Fog, his post-cannibal best-selling account of his dinner with Renee. "Finally I was eating a beautiful white woman, and thought nothing was so delicious!"

In custody Sagawa was found incompetent to stand trial and placed in the Paul Guiraud asylum in Paris. Through family connections he was transferred to a hospital in Tokyo. And within fifteen months of hospitalization his influential father secured his release. By then, Sagawa had become a national celebrity, an accomplished author, and his "Parisian affair" was parodied in the song "Too Much Blood" by the Rolling Stones.

Hoy

Maltratan Hamsters. Volverán?

De 'EL BONDI' :
"Tan solo un par de minutos después, se abrió el telón y sobre el escenario aparecieron tres individuos en mamelucos blancos y mullidos, cual piel de hamster, sentados sobre diminutas banquetas. Así, arrancó Maltratan Hamsters, el trío vocal, humorísitico y hasta teatral por momentos que comanda Andrea Prodan, en el que se intercalan tangos, rap, reggae y arreglos corales con un exquisito sentido del humor. Como se dice en estos casos (y no por caer en un lugar común) fueron ovacionados a más no poder por toda la sala, que estalló en carcajadas continuamente. Es que una propuesta tan original, y a la vez entretenida, merecía ser reconocida como tal. Excelente, y además, divertidísimo."

en ocasión de show compartido con GRAN MARTEL en el Teatro ATENEO, Capital Federal, Buenos Aires.

Wim Wenders talks about rock music in his movies

Frost over the World - Wim Wenders - 11 Jan 08

David Frost era un conocido de los Monty Python y dió trabajo a 3 de ellos cuando eran muy jovenes, y él ea ya famoso. Hoy en dia este viejo bolú se vee borracho y insolente (aquí con un simpático y honesto Wenders), poniendo en juego el peor tipo de patoterísmo pseudo-intelectual 'British Style'.

Ví esta pelicula cuando salió, en el cine, en Roma. Fui con Rory Aitken, mi amigo Italo-Escocés.

Joe D'Amato (Aristide Massaccesi) y Tinto Brass.

Cuando empecé mi 'carrera' de actor (ca. 1983) uno de los primeros directores que me ofrecieron un papel era el rey del Porno/B-Movie Joe D'Amato. No accepté.
Varios años después, cuando yo tenía cierta experiencia con directores de calibro, me buscó otro cultor del genero... Tinto Brass. La peli se llamaba 'L'Uomo che Guarda' y se basaba en un libro de Alberto Moravia. En mi encuentro con el director, me explicó en modo muy seductor y intelectual, el SENTIDO de mi papel (protagónico) en su pelicula. Cauteloso pero curioso me fui a casa con el guión en la mano.
La primera escena me tenía protagonista de un largo fellatio en un restaurant chino.
Mi agente me pidió no acceptar.
que me perdi?

pd. Tinto Brass dirigió 'CALIGULA', película que inspiró el nombre de mi banda, ROMAPAGANA.

The Ninth Configuration ! (William Peter Blatty)





The Ninth Configuration, (also known as Twinkle, Twinkle, "Killer" Kane) is an American-made film, released in 1980, directed by William Peter Blatty (most famous as the author of The Exorcist). It is often considered a cult film and it won the Best Screenplay award at the 1981 Golden Globes. The film is based on Blatty's novel, The Ninth Configuration (1978) which was itself a reworking of an earlier version of the novel, first published in 1966 as Twinkle, Twinkle, "Killer" Kane!. The initial 1966 publication of the novel featured an exclamation mark at the end of the title, while all subsequent publications saw it removed.

The first half of the film has the predominant tone and style of a comic farce. In the second half, the film becomes darker as it delves deeper into its central issues of human suffering, sacrifice and faith. The film also frequently blurs the line between the sane and the insane.


Synopsis
Colonel Kane (Stacy Keach), a Marine psychiatrist suffering from nightmares, arrives at a castle in the American Pacific Northwest where shell-shocked and insane soldiers from the Vietnam war are being treated. The castle's staff has been unable to control the patients, many of whom are suspected of faking their illness to get out of combat. The permissive Kane opens himself up to listen to anything the soldiers have to say to him in an effort to heal them, while at the same time suffering from his own demons.

Pantyhose Tea!

Hong Kong-style milk tea is made of a mix of several types of black tea (the proportion of which is usually a "commercial secret" for famous milk tea vendors), evaporated milk, and sugar, the last of which is added by the customers themselves unless in the case of take-away. The use of condensed milk instead of milk and sugar, gives the tea a richer feel, and some Hong Kong eateries further thicken the taste by stirring in a raw egg just before serving (when the tea isn't so hot that it will cook the egg into solid). The common advertising catchphrase for milk tea in Hong Kong is "Ceylon black tea with Holland Black & White evaporated milk".

To make the tea, water and tea (about 1 to 3 teaspoons of tea a cup, depending how strong the drinker likes) are brought to a boil then simmered for about 3-6 minutes. The tea is usually put in a sackcloth bag before the water is added to the pot to filter it out or if no bag available poured through a strainer. Many people also remove the pot from the heat once it boils for about 3 minutes, then bring the pot to a boil again. This process can be repeated several times, intensifying the caffeine/flavor.

The key feature of Hong Kong-style milk tea is that a sackcloth bag is used to filter the tea leaves. However any other filter/strainer may be used to filter the tea. Sackcloth bags are not completely necessary but generally preferred. The bag, reputed to make the tea smoother, gradually develops an intense brown colour as a result of prolonged tea drenching. Together with the shape of the filter, it resembles a pantyhose, giving Hong Kong-style milk tea the nickname of "pantyhose" or "silk stocking" milk tea (Chinese: 絲襪奶茶). This nickname is used in Hong Kong but less so in mainland China and overseas communities.

There are debates over the authentic way of making milk tea, i.e. the sequence of adding each. Some people argue that milk should be added before pouring the tea, while some hold the opposite view. Most people do agree that both ways are authentic. In the past, however, milk tea were usually made in the tea-after-milk way. It is said that the cups may break when the tea (which can be as hot as 80–90 degree Celsius) is poured. There is also a saying that the milk is sterilized when the tea is added.
[edit] Culinary culture
Hot milk tea in a coffee cup accompanies a breakfast

Milk tea is a popular part of many Hong Kongers' daily lives, typically served as part of afternoon tea, but also at breakfast or dinner. It enjoys nearly the same ubiquitous status that coffee holds in the West. Whilst not offered by more traditional Cantonese restaurants or dim sum teahouses, milk tea is standard fare in Hong Kong-style western restaurants and cha chaan tengs, as well as Hong Kong's historic dai pai dongs, with a price between HKD$8–$12 (hot, one or two dollars more for cold). A cup of hot milk tea is usually either served in a ceramic cup (often referred to as a "coffee cup" 咖啡杯) or a tall cylindrical plastic glass.

In contrast, some expatriate Westerners and tourists may not hold milk tea in as high regard. The 2006 edition of the Rough Guide to Hong Kong and Macau[1] by Jules Brown and David Leffman compares the local milk tea unfavourably with "proper" English tea served in more formal Western cafes and hotels such as the Peninsula Hotel, citing different cultural preferences. In the Lonely Planet World Food Hong Kong[2] guide by Richard Sterling and Elizabeth Chong, traditional Chinese tea and high teas in hotels are favoured over milk tea, which is not mentioned at all.
[edit] Criteria for quality milk tea

The first criterion of a good cup of milk tea is its "smoothness" (香滑); in other words, how creamy and full-bodied it is.

Another criterion for tasty milk tea (and also bubble tea) is some white frothy residue inside the lip of the cup after some of it has been drunk. This white froth means that the concentration of butterfat in the evaporated milk used is high enough.
[edit] Varieties

Today, iced milk tea is usually prepared with ice cubes. However, in the old days, when machines for producing ice cubes were not popular, the iced milk tea was made by filling the hot milk tea into a glass bottle and then cooling it in a fridge. Sometimes the milk tea were filled in Vitasoy or Coca-Cola bottles, and were sold by bottle. Today this type of "bottle milk tea" is rare in Hong Kong. Iced milk tea in cans or plastic bottles can be found in many of the convenience stores around Hong Kong such as 7-11 and Circle K.

In the case of milk tea with ice cubes, the melting ice will dilute the content, thus affecting the taste of the drink; therefore, many people prefer the old way of preparing iced milk tea. Today, some cha chaan tengs serve ice-less iced milk tea, made by pouring hot milk tea into a plastic cup and then cooling it in a fridge.


Cha chow (Chinese: 茶走) is milk tea prepared with condensed milk, instead of evaporated milk and sugar. Its taste is, as can be expected, sweeter than ordinary milk tea. In the old days[clarification needed], Cha chow was mostly drank by older people who had "congestion" in their throats. By drinking Cha chow it was less likely for them to have the congestion.

Milk tea and coffee together is called yuan yang (yin yang) (鴛鴦).

A variation on "pantyhose tea" is "pantyhose coffee".

Había una Vez...

dos hermanos Húngaros. Se llamaban Gregor y Anton Von Görög.
Uno se distinguó como compositor a la corte Otomana del último Pashá.
El otro llegó a ser el Chef de una Reina (Victoria), y de un Rey (Eduardo VII), en Londres.
Eran los tios de mi abuela paterna.
Ella dejó atrás su posición y aristocrática vida en Hungría, casandose con un joven Italiano de origenes humildes, 'tenente di vascello' en la Marina Imperial Austro-Húngara.
Tuvieron una hija (Nandina) y un hijo (Marcantonio, o Mario). Y este último es mi papá.
El imperio Austro-Hungaro desapareció de un dia al otro, tras la Gran Guerra (1914-1918).
A los 18 años Mario viajó hasta China donde su padre, ya 'Comandante di Vascello' había tenido que dar ordenes de hundir su barco de guerra, la 'Kaiserin Elisabett' para evitar que caiga en manos enemigas.
Y es en China que mi papá conoció a Cecilia Pollock, mi madre, y ahí se casaron.

Gregor von Görög: Chef de la Realeza


El tío abuelo de mi padre era el gran Chef Austro-Hungaro Gregor Von Görög (acá repartiendo instrucciones a unos adeptos).


Entre sus méritos, fué chef en Buckingham Palace en los ultimos años del reinado de la Reina Victoria, y posteriormente cocinero personal del Rey Eduardo VII.
Intimo de Auguste Escoffier (El Chef de los Reyes y el Rey de los Chefs), Von Görög (o Von Goeroeg) era miembro del Clan de los Cinco, considerados los mas grandes Chefs de su época.

En un cuadro de esta época se ve representado Von Görög en una cena de la aristocrácia Británica.
El Rey Eduardo VII (acá en un retrato de su infancia) tenía con VG una amistad que perduró por muchos años y llegó a aprender a comunicarse en el idioma de los sordomudos para ayudar al viejo cocinero a soportar la importante sordera que acompañó sus últimos años.
Mi padre me contó que la vieja reina Victoria detestaba ver que su hijo (y futuro Rey) pasaba tantas horas en las cocinas de Buckingham Palace, entretenido por los cuentos y recetas de este tio de mi abuela, Marika 'Mámuli ' Von Görög.

Nada más Inglés!

A British Monarchs Mnemonic Poem
These are traditional aids used in UK schools to help students remember the order of British Monarchs from William the Conqueror on . . .

Willie Willie Harry Stee
Harry Dick John Harry three;
One two three Neds, Richard two
Harrys four five six....then who?
Edwards four five, Dick the bad,
Harrys (twain), Ned six (the lad);
Mary, Bessie, James you ken,
Then Charlie, Charlie, James again...
Will and Mary, Anna Gloria,
Georges four, Will four Victoria;
Edward seven next, and then
Came George the fifth in nineteen ten;
Ned the eighth soon abdicated
Then George six was coronated;
After which Elizabeth
And that's all folks until her death.

Este poema se aprende a memoria en muchas escuelas Inglesas para ayudar a los isleños en la no facil tarea de acordarse los nombres de sus Reales desde Guillermo el Conquistador (Un Francés!) en el 1066, hasta hoy!

Grandes Postres Imperialistas: Hoy... Kaiserschmarrn



El Kaiserschmarrn o Kaiserschmarren es uno de los postres más conocidos de la cocina austriaca, popular también en la mayor parte del antiguo Imperio Austrohúngaro, así como en Baviera (Alemania). Consiste en trozos de una especie de crêpes dulces y gruesas. La masa del Kaiserschmarrn suele estar caramelizada y contiene más huevos que un pancake normal; a menudo lleva uvas pasas, almendra molida y confitura o trozos de manzana. Antes de servir se espolvorea con azúcar glas. Se suele comer acompañado de compotas de frutas, por ejemplo de ciruelas, fresas y manzanas. Si bien se trata en origen de un postre, al ser una comida muy pesada no es extraño que se sirva como almuerzo.

Sherry Trifle


Traditionally served at children’s birthday parties, trifle is an English standard and always features on menus across the nation. Whether a host is looking to produce a traditional example of English fare, or simply looking to produce a dessert that is universally popular, trifle will always be a favourite on the menu.

The sherry trifle is archetypal English, featuring the stalwart of Christmas celebrations and festivities, sherry. While sherry has a poor reputation as belonging to the realm of blue rinses and pensions, it is often overlooked and should not be underestimated when used in cooking. The sweet alcoholic tang of the sherry acts as a perfect counterfoil for the rich custard mixture and tart fruit of a traditional trifle.

Ingredients:
To Make the Custard:
600 ml milk
4 egg yolks
2 tbsp corn flour
1 tsp vanilla essence
75 g caster sugar
For the Trifle:
6 trifle sponges
3 tbsp raspberry or strawberry jam
6 tbsp sherry
Juice of 1 orange
450 g of mixed berries (tinned fruit is acceptable)
425 ml double cream
1 tbsp icing sugar
2 tbsp of chopped nuts
How to Make The Trifle
In a large mixing bowl, whisk the egg yolks, corn flour, vanilla and sugar together with 2 tbsp of the milk. Put the remaining milk in a non-stick pan and slowly bring to the boil.
When the milk is boiling, pour it onto the egg yolk mixture and stir well. Rinse out the saucepan, then pour the milk and egg mixture back in the pan. Cook gently until the mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon; do not boil. Pour the mixture back into the bowl and cover the surface with greaseproof paper, leaving the mixture to cool.
Split the trifle sponges, spread with the jam and then sandwich together. Cut each sponge in to two pieces and scatter over the base of a large glass dish. Scatter the fruit over the sponge. Mix the sherry and orange juice together and sprinkle over the fruit. Cover with the custard.
Whip the cream and icing sugar together until they form soft peaks. Spoon the mixture on top of the custard and scatter over the chopped nuts.
Chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Trifle can be kept for a couple of days, but is at its best when freshly prepared.
Trifle will follow any menu with ease, as its combination of sweet and tart flavours renders it a perfect accompaniment to most dishes. Serve it with cream if required for a richer dessert, or allow it to stand alone in all its traditional and well-loved glory!
