Stirring the 3-Pound Mini-Bucket of Almond Butter

three pound container of almond butter

I bought a 3 pound mini-bucket of almond butter from Amazon.

When it arrived, the oil had separated and risen to the top of the container. As I am experienced in nut butters, this was no surprise and to be expected. You simply have to mix that mess up. The issue presented by this particular mess of almond butter was the volume, specifically the depth, of the container. No spoon in the house could reach the bottom and provide ample length to grip above The Butter Line.

The Lovers, or, The Brothers: How to Get Away with Murder Every Day

L'amoureux Marseilles Tarot card Jodorowsky


From The Fool to The Emperor, the cards illustrated an accumulation of massive, individual concepts or energies. In The Hierophant, we reached a point of ("sexual") interaction between those energies. From there down, the Tarot is a theater of play between modes of Consciousness, strengths (or weaknesses) of Will, Physical/Emotional energies, Spiritual states of being... You get the idea; you're alive...

Every bullshit, flea market psychic hopes The Lovers will turn up in a reading. The only card that is more effective in manipulation of a client is XIII, the Nameless Arcanum, often called Death. The true lessons of both cards are more similar than you may first suspect.

A Baby Black Widows Christmas: Volume 2

A Baby Black Widows Christmas: Volume 2

Merry Christmas, again.

Christmas music is stupid.* However, I am of the philosophy that one shouldn't criticize without also offering something of substance as an alternative. So here is A Baby Black Widows Christmas: Vol. II! [If you missed the first one, it's surprisingly still available: A Baby Black Widows Christmas]

I have masterfully sequenced and segued a fantastic compilation of music representative of what I was listening to this year. You have two options below, a single, 70 minute file or the Patty Pusscake version, which is separated into three parts. Both options include the cover art. This compilation is intended only as an introduction to some music with which you may be unfamiliar. If you do happen to enjoy any of this music, you are strongly encouraged to purchase your own copies and support the artists.

Happy Holidays.
