Pigeons - annoying birds, cute chubby feather creatures or Betty's favorite driving assistants?

One of my friends despises them, other is scared of them while I occasionally feed them. I actually find this little flying rats rather cute, even though they are kinda brainless. While two pigeons will fight upon a bread crum - sparrow will steal it away in a blink of an eye.

Still I don't digg pigeons the way those two do. Pigeon lady from Home alone ring a bell?

Collecting noise

Today I'm collecting ideas for noise - to make myself a perfect playlist for jogging. Yes, that's right I said jogging. If someone would tell me as a teenager that I'll be jogging some day because I'll feel an urge to do so, I wouldn't call them mad. I'd proclaim them utterly insaine, stupid and blind. Running was a pain in the ass in primary school and most hurtful part of gym class in High school. The way I saw it voluntary running was only for sport freaks and idiots. I guess now life is taking it's chances to teach me the meaning of irony. I don't even want to imagine my lessons in 20 years.

To cut to the chase - I need noise to occupy my brain while running. Something loud and melodic with good rhythm and a lot of guitars. Feel free to drop a suggestion or two. If it's anything like this, you can bet I'll use it:

We are scientists: Nobody move, Nobody get hurt

With a gloomy weather like we have today there's only one kind of music I want to listen to: Garbage. One of my all times favorite bands, you know the kind you never get tired listening to. Their music is irresistible and I'm sure charismatic singer Shirley Manson adds quite a lot to that factor. Before joining Garbage Shirley was a singer at Angelfish. Their video "Suffocate Me" was noticed by Steve Marker. Soon she became a lead singer for Garbage.

There were rumors about them splitting up but the official explanation was the band is only taking a break. In summer 2007 they released their "Best off" album so hopefully they'll continue doing the good job. Here's a garbage threesome of my all time favorites - enjoy it.

I'm only happy when it rains

How to make Jota

I've already written some recipes for recovery soups but this one is really special. Jota is Slovenian soup that can make you whole again after long night partying and also one of my favorite dishes. Well, to be honest I'm not completely sure it's Slovenian but if it's not...we really should claim it, steal the recipe and patent it like we did with Macedonian Ajvar.

Jota is one of those magic dishes that make you feel better even though you're not really sure why. Traditionally is it made with meat but I assure you it is just as delicious without it, It is all about the cabbage. So here is a recipe for vegetarian Jota - those of you meat lovers will probably want to add some smoked pork into it. Recipe is for 4 persons or one really huge Jota fan :)

You will need:
  • 500 gr sauerkraut,
  • 250 gr of cooked beans (you can soak dry ones and cook them but canned beans will also do),
  • 1 - 2 potatoes,
  • half an onion,
  • 2 cloves of garlic,
  • 3 bay leafs,
  • oil,
  • flour,
  • water,
  • Vegeta,
  • paprika spice
  • salt and pepper.
Boil cabbage for about half an hour and boil the potatoes separately. After half an hour add salt, pepper, cooked potatoes beans, a table spoon of Vegeta and bay leafs.

Chop onion and garlic, heat up the oil, add a tablespoon of flour and stir it for a minute or two. Then add chopped onion, garlic and half a spoon of paprika spice.

Add all to Jota and cook for few more minutes... and enjoy your meal.

Elf u!

I swear there is a naughty elf, hiding somewhere in my room. When I'm not looking he is hiding my pencils, misplacing my CD's, upsetting my hamster and messing around with my computer.

Do you have one too?

MacGyver or Chuck Norris

I don't know much about action men but I do know MacGyver could probably make a bomb out of bird shit and some lunch left over. Chuck Norris on the other hand gives you the creeps without even moving a muscle. So if they were in the battle - who would win? It's almost like Superman vs. Batman - sure, my bets are with Superman but then again Batman really knows his style.

It's simply too much for me, so I'll let you decide - who is cooler, stronger and more powerful: DIY man MacGyver or scary stiff Chuck Norris? Here are some facts about them which are taken and copied from here, here and here, to help you decide.

Angus MacGyver (what a subtle name indeed) - the Brain

1. MacGyver was actually the creator of modern day baseball. He, by himself, was the only team to go undefeated for an entire season. Twice.

2. MacGyver used to be a professor, but was frustrated by the stupidity of young Chuck Norris, and thus had to quit...The one thing MacGyver never figured out.

3. MacGyver actually entered the first pilot show of Survivor, but was promptly banned for building a condo complete with remote controlled garage in the first hour.

4. Chuck Norris never could grow hair on his face or anywhere else, so he confronted MacGyver. MacGyver then created a contraption that allowed Chuck Norris to finally look like a man! This was considered the first sex change.

5. Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Give him a fishing pole, you'll feed him for life...Give MacGyver a spool of thread, a half bottle of bleach and a pizza crust and he'll create a life form similar to fish but capable of intelligent speech and advanced calculus.

6. The only reason the MacGyver show was ever canceled was because in the summer of 1991 MacGyver caused a worldwide shortage of duct tape.

7. MacGyver once fought with Chuck Norris, MacGyver won with Q-Tips, a cough drop, and an empty Powerade bottle.

Chuck Norris - the Pain

1. Leading hand sanitizers claim they can kill 99.9 percent of germs. Chuck Norris can kill 100 percent of whatever the fuck he wants.

2. A Handicap parking sign does not signify that this spot is for handicapped people. It is actually in fact a warning, that the spot belongs to Chuck Norris and that you will be handicapped if you park there.

3. If you spell Chuck Norris wrong on Google it doesn't say, "Did you mean Chuck Norris?" It simply replies, "Run while you still have the chance."

4. Chuck Norris doesn't read books. He stares them down until he gets the information he wants.

5. Chuck Norris' dog is trained to pick up his own poop because Chuck Norris will not take shit from anyone.

6. Chuck Norris doesn't use pickup lines, he simply says, "Now."

7. Chuck Norris was originally offered the role as Frodo in Lord of the Rings. He declined because, "Only a pussy would need three movies to destroy a piece of jewelery."

So, who's the Man?

Tuesday, January 15, 2008


Rarely I have unexplainable desire for some food or drinks: it's just a moment when a picture pops up in your head: I need want to have some Cockta. For all of you who don't know what the hell am I talking about - Cockta is famous Slovenian soft drink - similar to Coca Cola only much better. It's quite delicious drink based on herbs with less bubbles and no caffeine.

In Yugoslavia it was advertised as "the drink of our and your youth" and had a nice logo with lady on it - the whole image of the drink was kind of Andy Warhole like, very pop-ish with fine taste of kitsch. Then they stole the lady image from us, leaving only the name and the drink. Foreign people usually don't like it so much because they expect Coca Cola (which is in my opinion only good for cleaning toilets and Mentos experiments). But obviously it intrigues some enough to write a post about it.

The reason why I am telling you all of this is that I couldn't buy one as the stores were already closed. Instead I had some tea and lots of chocolate which of course didn't help at all. I still want one. There is only one Cockta and nothing else can substitute it.

Discount issues?

Nah, not really. After the amount of people I've seen around the stores past few days I think I'd rather listen to Tokio Hotel or see a Steven Seagal movie twice in a row than go shopping for clothes. People are buying winter clothes as if the ice age was approaching. Considering the global warming that could very much be the case, but since thick furry coat didn't seem to work out for the Mammoths I guess it's better to spend that money on something else (God forbid to save anything more than necessary).

Ok, One of the books is for my studies but the other is for pure pleasure.

Nancy Friday's: My Secret Garden is something every women should read at least once in her lifetime. I was lucky to get my hands on it as a teenager. I think the librarian never looked at me the same way after I borrowed it.

Chocolates are from Fair Trade shop in Ljubljana and I have to admit the first one was opened about 5 seconds after I left the store. Yummy!

I did kinda want to avoid chocolate for a while but having decided to finish my studies that's just impossible. I need nuts, I need chocolate, I need lots of tea, some coffee and a sauna. Ok, maybe I don't really need the sauna but it's still very nice. So here's my first book bite and that's not even 25% of stuff I have to read. If you see me talking to myself about some strange theories, that's probably the reason.

So what the hell am I doing here blogging on Friday night instead of grabbing one of those books? Aw fuck it! I'm taking the night off to watch a movie. She probably knows how good that feels.

Amazing blond

I used to thing that celebrity crushes is one of those unexplainable silly things you do in your teens. You know, like having pet insects, listening to Milli Vanilli and wearing that bizarre 80's fashion. Well, thing again.

I still remember when my roommate brought home a special edition of Statues, with all the videos. I know what they say about blonds and all but nothing really gave me that WOW effect (nope, not even Madonna). Until Róisín Murphy, a former singer of Moloko. We were both dazed and amazed by her voice, moves and beats, drooling all over the flat. I couldn't take my eyes of the computer and watching that DVD became our daily ritual.

My huge crush on her resulted in buying off almost everything about the group I could get my hands on. At that time those were considered to be my most valuable possessions. I was quite disappointed too for public to admire only "Sing it Back" and "The time is now" when they had so much more to offer.

I'm almost ashamed to say I missed their concert in Zagreb due to my work. It was one of those: " I'll definitely go to the next one" things. Did the same with Nirvana concert and I guess you don't have to be psychic to know what happened afterwards. So this is for the old times sake - Moloko in all their glory:

Forever more

All those written letters can actually be quite romantic and almost as complicated as soap operas. Nouns secretly looking for adjectives, verbs being almost useless just standing alone and all those funny grammatical rules making such a good entertainment for some and such pain in the ass for the others.

Like people, some words are just more lovable than the others - some we are easy to love while others we persistently keep on forgetting. Quite sissy in their shape yet powerful as weapon: today words seem absolutely necessary and logical. Especially politicians are mouthful of big and important words, full of future and prosperity. Well, yeah, all right, whatever. A little less conversation, a little more action...

Sometimes I am wondering if talking isn't overrated. Can’t undo what you said and can’t always predicts what it will cause. Are there any words without consequences?

What if we could really speak without taking and hear without listening, like The Sound of silence suggests? What if most of talking is a waste of energy? If we stop speaking….would that make the world a better place?

Probably not but it surely would make it much more quiet and easier to fall asleep….

This one probably won't be a surprise to all of you music fans out there - an excellent desert from French electro house band called Justice. Nevertheless their music and image is influenced by rock although it does sound a lot like electro-pop with fine beats. You can find them on MySpace and see if you can resist their cool retro look (with just a touch of that Village People feeling) :)

The duo has not only good taste in music but also quite a fetish on kitch, having a light-up cross as a substantial part of their shows. Yes we've seen crosses with Depeche mode, Rammstein and many others too. Apparently they're always fashionable. Still, their debut album Cross was marked as one of "Best 25 album of 2007" by the Blender Magazine. It is also nominated for Grammy Award for Best Electronic/Dance Album for the upcoming 50th Grammy Awards. Here is what some of the magazines had to say about the album:

The Onion (A.V. Club)
"An engaging study in contrasts and a killer party record."

"They've totally nailed it."

The Guardian
"The grooves are gnarly and congested, the synth riffs are distorted howls and the samples are torn from Devo and horror-soundtracking prog-rockers Goblin."

Intrigued? Well, this song is supposedly dedicated to Michael Jackson but don't let that stop you from enjoying it ;)

Justice: D.A.N.C.E.

A certain romance

But not the kind Arctic Monkeys sing about. This one is for real.

Ever seen anything like that?

Save it for the morning after

Longest and possibly best ever New year's party resulted in having substantially stubborn hang over the next morning. The kind when your stomach gets caught in somewhere between your head and throat, desperately asking for attention.

Luckily I had a cure for it - after having few cups of that excellent detoxification tea Pu Erh, I made myself a super recovery soup. I'm convinced it could cure everything but stupidity. My stomach didn't complain until late evening when I was watching Taxidermia. I'm still trying to forget.

For the super recovery soup you'll need only few ingredients and about 15 minutes of your time:
  • celery
  • carrots
  • onion
  • garlic
  • cauliflower
  • other vegetables of your choice
  • salt
  • pepper
  • Vegeta
  • oil
Heat up the oil and add cut carrots, onion, celery, garlic and other vegetables. You can use everything from tomatoes to leek. More vegetables will give the soup a better taste.

Fry it for few minutes and then add salt, pepper and Vegeta. Boil for another 15 minutes and then serve it hot. It will achieve a major agreement of your internal organs to stop remind you of their existence for the rest of the day.
