But in case you're not hearing what it's saying, the video shows Japanese food instrument hacker Junji Koyama jamming on pasta.

Full disclosure: Gray Cat was not pleased during the making of this post.

Helpful Hints from joeeze: Blender as emergency ice bucket

Photo copy 2

Last night I was cleaning out my fridge and discovered a bottle of the Widow Clicquot way in the back, for how many years I haven't the foggiest.

No matter, carpe diem et al so I looked around for an ice bucket to keep it chilled after I opened it up.

Best I could do was a Cuisinart I haven't used for at least 10 years, but it turned out to be quite a good fit for a mixture of ice cubes and cold water and kept the contents nicely chilled for the entirety of Sunday Night Football.

Once again, credit to Edwin H. Land and his powerful, mind-expanding dictum: "Solve the problem with what's in the room."
