   At The Cinema                           


Rotting AF1

Since this was made by and released directly on NetFlix, I don't imagine a whole lot of people saw it.  Lilyhammer‎ is about a NY mafioso guy ("The Sopranos" mainstay and E Street Band guitarist Steven Van Zandt) who gets witness protection in Lilyhammer‎, Norway, site of the 1994 Winter Olympics  He promptly corrupts the whole town  It's a comedy, and fairly well done; eight episodes.  Trond Fausa Aurvåg as Torgeir Lien, Giovanni's friend and business partner, steals the whole series.  In English. I  think the Juices will like it.

Who's responsible for this?

Oh My

Obama bugged GOP cloakroom

The time has come,” the Hangman said,
To talk of punishment:
Of lies – and tricks – and cover-ups –
Of corrupt government –
And why Benghazi won’t go ‘way –
And where our honor went.”
With apologies to Lewis Carroll. - Terry Lowenstein

"Would you believe?"   After Hillary was able to get the raw FBI files of elected GOPs, and later provide them (trust me) to porn publisher Larry Flynt to use as "leverage" against House managers during Slick's impeachment, of course I belive it.   I expect it.  The Democrat party is a cesspool.  Here's a snip of what I'll call Cloakroom-Gate.

That’s the revelation made by California Congressman Devin Nunes, who sits on the House Ways And Means Committee on Hugh Hewitt’s Show Wednesday night. Here’s the key part of that transcript:

HH: The idea that this might be a Geithner-Axelrod plan, and by that, the sort of intimation, Henry II style, will no one rid me of this turbulent priest, will no one rid me of these turbulent Tea Parties, that might have just been a hint, a shift of an eyebrow, a change in the tone of voice. That’s going to take a long time to get to. I don’t trust the Department of Justice on this. Do you, Congressman Nunes?

DN: No, I absolutely do not, especially after this wiretapping incident, essentially, of the House of Representative. I don’t think people are focusing on the right thing when they talk about going after the AP reporters. The big problem that I see is that they actually tapped right where I’m sitting right now, the Cloak Room.

HH: Wait a minute, this is news to me.

DN: The Cloak Room in the House of Representatives.

Cherry Garcia Undereground

Today's Sticking It To The Man

Cherry Garcia   
Res Ipsa Loquitor

It is our misfortune to like Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia ice cream.  I can't help thinking those two limousine commies toyed with naming it CHErry GUAVERA, but that's beside the point.  It's MoSup's favorite dessert treat after spicy food, and it's premium priced. Here's a recipe I found, and made. 

The beauty part is that it can be in your freezer in 30 minutes,  That's right, no  cooking required.  If you're a pussy, you're supposed to use irradiated eggs, but that's your silliness.  This recipe uses an ice cream maker.  I use a Cuisinart refurb I bought from Woot for $144, 3 years ago.  It works except I have to put my heavy cast iron chicken fryer on top to keep the motor engaged.  I cannot for the life of me see any "commercial" use for it, but caveat emptor.


  • 1/4 cup shaved plain chocolate (Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate Trader Joe's Pound Plus Dark Chocolate preferred)
  • 1/4 cup fresh Bing cherries, halved and pitted (you may use canned cherries, but be sure to drain the syrup)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups heavy or whipping cream
  • 1 cup milk


Place the shaved chocolate flakes and the cherries in separate bowls. Cover and refrigerate.

Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk in the sugar, a little at a time, then continue whisking until completely blended, about 1 minute more. Pour in the cream and milk and whisk to blend.

Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and freeze following the manufacturer's instructions.

After the ice cream stiffens (about 2 minutes before it is done), add the chocolate and the cherries, then continue freezing until the ice cream is ready.

Yield: 1 quart

How does it taste?  Like Cherry Garcia only better.  I did add the cherries and chocolate too early though.  Next time I'll add them after the machine is finished and the ice cream is still not hard set.   Bonus- I will use this basic recipe for all my home made ice cream henceforth.

You're welcome.
