"Artists need to make money to eat and to continue to make art. Artists used to rely on middlemen to collect their money on their behalf, thereby rendering themselves innocent of cash-handling in the public eye. Artists will now be coming straight to you (yes YOU, you who want their music, their films, their books) for their paychecks. Please welcome them. Please help them. Please do not make them feel badly about asking you directly for money. -Amanda Palmer

I just plowed through the first season of "The Good Place" and am starting season 2. If you are not familiar, watch it from the beginning before anyone spoils it for you.

So good, such a wicked sense of humour overiding the whole thing.
Plus, Janet.

I've made it to the last 5 episodes of Breaking Bad, but the last couple of seasons are one helluva trudge for me. I've come around to agreeing with the Skyler character's opinion from earlier in the show and been wishing the cancer would come back and off Walt, the quicker the better for everyone he's apparently determined to drag down with him.

I mean, the quality of the writing and acting and the critical praise for it is deserved, in my opinion. But the emotional and ethical heart of the show just keeps getting deeper, darker and more repulsive.

I'm tempted to skip to the last episode to see how/how many of everyone gets deaded and call it good enough.

Yeah, it's mighty good but it's mighty dark too.

Happy new year my friends. Things are feeling good over here except for the awful cold and the whole world going down the tubes.

Butchered out one of the larger male turkey carcasses. Took both breasts and carved them into tenders, bagged up eight pounds of meat from that. Parted out the other pieces and the carcass and ground it up. Spouse got real creative and found two different sausage mix recipes, one apple based, the other bacon based, both had various seasonings to add flavour as well. Interesting thing  to me, both recipes used egg whites as a binder and moistener, drying out will definetly not be an issue with these. Here's some photos of how the sausage is made:



Some finished bacon sausage (yes, we used Hammy bacon):



We made nine pounds of sausage, now that the learning curve is over I can see doing this regularly.

Turkey and green sauce enchiladas last night. This is a view of the left overs because the children descended upon the pan like savage beasts:

So in the last 48 hrs I saw the new Star Wars flick (some cool scenes linked by a kind of boring plot), the Killing of Sacred Deer (excellently cool and creepy and just weird in a way I love but hesitate to recommend to people, if you liked the Lobster you'll probably like this) and 3 Billboard Outside Ebbing Missouri which I would like to proselytize for now.

I almost didn't see this film because I thought it would be too much of a bummer and I'm so glad I changed my mind. It *is* super dark, and it tackles serious issues fairly frankly but it is also hilarious. I didn't realise until afterwards that the writer director also made In Bruges. Billboards doesn't have that film's surrealism but it's got humour in spades. Highly, highly recommended.

2017 set a low bar, so, yeah, that would be nice.
