Just finished watching this.
"Sriracha": A Documentary Film by Griffin Hammond
This was a really solid doc. While yes, it did focus primarily on the sriracha that most Americans are familiar with, the Huy Fong brand, the doc gave surprisingly good insights into the origins and cultural significance of sriracha as a general sauce.
The two most notable things about “Sriracha” for me were the visuals and the personal stories from David Tran, creator of the Huy Fong sauces. Every single shot of the film was intentional, and looked great. Couple that with how much of a sweetheart Mr. Tran appears to be, and you’ve got a successful doc.
Definitely worth watching if you get a chance. Atlanta friends, it’ll be at the Plaza on March 29th!
Got this in the mail today.
The Country Grind, issue 1
The Country Grind is a quarterly newspaper that is written by and for rural punks. If the Foxfire books and the Slingshot! newspaper got together and had a fling over some homemade muscadine wine, this would be their love child.
This is a neat little newspaper. There are a bunch of articles pertaining to country livin’, making stuff, and fixing things. And it’s free for punx with rural addresses! Get into it.
Unfortunately due to a move gone wrong and an ignorant landlord, a close family friend of mine has to find a home for her companion. Remi (located in Southern California) is a typical Vizsla whom is full of energy and loves spending time with high energy people who can keep up with him. He has zero behavior issues and has a great temperament. When he’s not hiking he enjoys his down time snuggled up on your lap giving you all the love he can offer (he thinks he is a lap dog.) Not only does he get along with dogs, but cats and children as well. If you or anyone you know are interested in giving Remi a home please get into contact with me via text, Facebook or even on here. And if you could repost this that would be wonderful.
I love Vizslas, especially old, powder-faced ones. Plus, Remi is sooooo cute.
This is pretty far away, but it’s gonna be funnnn. Click through for FB event page.
Happening in a week!6
Always being in the mood for summer rain, watching movies for the 1,000th time and still loving it all the same, waiting waiting waiting for letters, everything always working out in the end ALWAYS, cups of tea every night, sewing on patches, seeing old things in new ways.
