MUP 129 - Overworked Horses and Pre-Con Chat

Post by Keeper Dan » Mon Aug 14, 2017 3:05 am

This episode, Murf, Chad and Dan get together for a shorter show to give a Crier update, then some talk about NecronomiCon Providence. This episode was recorded on, August 7, 2017.

Campus Crier
Our thoughts go out to Joe Pulver, who has had some health problems recently and won’t be able to attend NecronomiCon. There has been some pretty good news on that front, it’s not as serious as feared, but he’s still out of commish and he and his wife could use a boost if you’ve got something to donate to help while he’s in recovery. Katrin says “a huge huge thank you” to those in the community who have helped defray some of the medical bills.

The translations of the menu from the Ceylon Dinner are particularly good.

We talk about our expectations of the con, and the panels that we'll either be on or intent to attend.

Good luck at the convention. Glad you found that 'free translation' of the Ceylon Dinner (Which were actually as done in the 19thC) as hilarious as I did. The OldFoodie has covered menu naming rules before, in a couple of posts

The Art of Naming Dishes on Bills of Fare.

Rules for the Naming of Dishes.

Another fun entry is an example of Australian 'Bush Cooking'

First catch your cockatoo.

And some 'fusion quisine'

Loved the return of the Card Catalog...and while I was traveling I listened to a group of podcasts. One was on the History of Scotland and there was this discussion about the Meigle Stone Museum in Scotland...and there are a couple that would be great for the basis for a story or a jumping off point to even more Mythos based stones

Now these two are called Loki stones, but you could easily see them as something Mythos - or so I think

Can't wait to hear about the Con

Appros of nothing: http://www.bad-candy.com/ I just wanted to say that. actually it's slightly relevant to the culinary topic and a frickin' hilarious website, if ancient in internet terms.

I just wanted to say how wonderful it was to meet you all at Necronomicon. Sure, Jon wasn't there, but the puppet was so lifelike that I feel like I met him anyway. The rest of you were reassuringly fleshy, banishing any worries I had about you being wax effigies filled with alien, buzzing voices.

And thank you all again for recording the crossover episode with The Good Friends of Jackson Elias. It was one of the highest points in a week that was filled with more high points than the Himalayas.
