I was reading the Oxford American special food issue yesterday, when I came across some barbeque dish called Burgoo. Josh hadn't heard of it either. After a bit of online research, I discovered that it is some kind of stew thing that can have a combination of mutton, beef, pork, chicken, veal or opossum, potatoes, corn, lima beans, tomatoes, or okra and a bunch of spices and you cook it for like 30 hours. Plus it is most famously found in Kentucky.
It is apparantly also the name of a punk album released by a band called Antietam in 1990. I'm not sure what kind of spicy meat/veggie mixture their music consists of...
[Update: Josh reminds me that we actually saw Antietam when they reuninted and opened for Yo La Tengo back last year. I don't remember Burgoo being mentioned during their set.]
Have any of my faithful readers ever had Burgoo? It actually sounds pretty awesome.
In other news, I'm listening to "The Lounge Show" on KOOP right now [I'm not always a huge lounge fan, it kind of gets old fast, but this is a really nice Saturday morning mix], and they are playing some song off William Shatner's new album where he does a duet with Henry Rollins (called "I Can't Get Behind That"). I have no qualms about listening to Shatner, but fucking Henry Rollins. I hate that dude. Even just listening to his stupid spoken word voice on this song makes me mad. I like pretty much everything in the entire universe except Henry Rollins (sorry tjd). Thanks for telling us all how to live, asshole. I'm glad you have it all figured out, and how nice of you to pummel us with your advice. I don't mind him in some Black Flag stuff, but jesus. What a cocksucker.
