Goodness gracious it’s been a long while since I did an episode of On The Mic. The Hawtline has been taking up all my show motivation! But I had something like three half-finished playlists sitting around and decided to compile them and throw together a last-minute show.

I personally think this is one of my better playlists so I hope you all enjoy! Leave me your feedback and requests for the next show 😀

Here’s the tracklist:

  1. Kaiser Chiefs — Never Miss a Beat
  2. Fever Ray — Seven
  3. The Cat Empire — L’Hotel de Californie
  4. Lily Allen — Not Fair
  5. White Lies — Farewell to the Fairground
  6. White Flight — Deathhands
  7. Day One — Bad Before Good
  8. Beirut — Venice
  9. Stars — The Night Starts Here
  10. The Shins — Sleeping Lessons
  11. WTF TUESDAY?!!?!?!!!!?!?!!?! I’m keeping this one a secret. LISTEN TO THE SHOW TO FIND OUT WHAT IT IS!
  12. Black Eyed Peas — Boom Boom Pow
  13. Sage Francis — Sea Lion
  14. Faunts — Feel Love Thinking Of

Listen to it here:

Okay,sexies, HAVE A GREAT DAY.

YO GUYS. It’s THE HAWTLINEEEE WOOOOOHOO. I somehow conned TWIGBy into being my ever-present co-host (I may have offered him fruit snacks. Or I may have just made that up.) and we took questions from the public for COMBUSTIBLE MONKEY who was just delightful.

And it’s about time considering I actually interviewed him roughly one year ago and never actually produced the show. BURIED PODCAST OH MYYY.

Anyhow, enjoy The Hawtline:

NEXT SHOW, WE’RE INTERVIEWING KIRSTY. HECK YES.

[the song featured at the beginning is Patagonia by Diamond J and the Rough.]

Ok hi guys. I hadn’t done a show in a while so I have this TWIGBy EXCLUSIVE. I know normally I throw The Hawtline in a regular episode of On The Mic, but this particular episode was too massive and too hilarious so it had to be set apart on it’s own. So really, there’s no tracklist or anything, it’s just the Hawtline.

ENJOY!:

I had fun with that show. You can find TWIGBy on OkCupid (UGH) under the username the_wayigetby, or over on his blog, at continuousfire.wordpress.com.

Someone asked me tonight for the recipe to a dinner I made a couple weeks ago. I figured if I was gonna type up the recipe, which came from my AMAZING Delicious Disney cookbook (which is lovely. I got it at the park for $40 so I don’t know why it’s selling for so much more online, but whatever, its a great book with LOTS of lovely photos and yummy recipes), I’d might as well post it here for everyone.

Fried Green Tomatoes with Crab Meat & Asiago Cheese

Ingredients:

  • 5 small green tomatoes
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 5 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 1/2 cups panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • coarse salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup lump crab meat
  • 1 1/4 cups grated Asiago cheese
  • Parmesan Cheese (optional)
  • 15 fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced
  • 25 tarragon leaves, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • Balsamic Reduction (recipe follows)

(One tomato usually equals 1 serving, so this is enough for five)

  1. Peel the tomatoes with a vegetable peeler and slice 1/2 inch thick
  2. Coat tomato slices in flour, then egg, then panko bread crumbs. [I didn’t have any panko so for I used just regular ole seasoned breadcrumbs. It was still pretty yummy. If you use panko, I like to season it with a little bit of italian spices and salt and pepper. Mmmm. Also, for EXTRA DECADENCE, I like to mix the bread crumbs with the Parmesan cheese, and it comes out SOOO GOOD.]
  3. Heat the olive oil in a saute pan. Fry the toato slices on both sides until golden.
  4. Season with salt and pepper, if needed.
  5. Lay the tomato slices in a baking pan and top with crab meat and asiago cheese. [Personally, I find the taste of Asiago to be too strong, so you can either substitute it for a cheese you like better, or use VERY little]
  6. Broil 2-3 minutes or until the cheese is fully melted.
  7. Stack the layers of tomatoes on top of each other.
  8. Toss the basil, tarragon, peppers, onions, olive oil, and vinegar together. Season with salt and pepper to taste and set aside.
  9. Place the tomato stack on a plate. Drizzle balsamic reduction over the tomatoes and top with salad.

Balsamic Reduction:

  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, reduce the vinegar by 75%.
  2. Stir in honey. Set aside until the sauce is a thick consistency

[When made right, the balsamic reduction is REALLY good and just a little bit compliments the tomatoes perfectly. Unfortunately, because I cannot have a major disasterfree dinner, when I re-heated the reduction to make leftovers the next day, it BURNED and DESTROYED my leftover tomatoes. So definitely be careful. Ugh. I am so not a professional cook, obviously.]

DELICIOUS.

DELICIOUS.

OKAY ENJOY.

Also, one last thing. I just want to introduce you all to the greatest Valentine I have EVER, EVER GOTTEN, IN MY ENTIRE LIFE:

I WILL BE YOUR FATHER FIGURE.

If you are the desert, I'll be the sea. IF YOU EVER HUNGER, HUNGER FOR ME.

Oh hell yes.

Thank you to Agent Lover, who knows exactly how to get my motor runnin’.

Battles.

Everyone knows about my daily battles with my Roomba, Rosie. Basically, she’s an ASSHOLE. She goes exactly where I tell her not to go and ignores the places where she needs to be the most. She gets caught on the welcome mat EVERY DAY and I have to go and bail her out. She barges into the bathroom and then can’t leave. I thought robots were supposed to be smart and obedient. Whoever thought up that lie hasn’t met Rosie.

But today, on this February 19th (20th), I had a different battle:

  • “Do I Wii-fit, or do I MarioKart?”

I have this battle almost nightly. Man, I love my ass some MarioKart. Something about being able to smash your enemies with a spiky BLUE SHELL FROM HELL really tickles my fancy. But I tend to limit myself to one video-game a day because 1. I don’t like video games enough to play more than one a day, and 2. I don’t have the attention span to play more than one video game a day, man. I just don’t. My bedroom is ADHD central.

In order to motivate myself to Wii-fit daily, because I am ridiculous, I have convinced myself that I have a crush on my Wii-Fit trainer, who I’ve lovingly named Terrance. I don’t want to disappoint or embarrass myself in front of Terrance, so I always make time for our illicit training affairs so he can whip me into shape with his strong muscles.

Oh, Terrance. I love your leg lifts.

But tonight, I still asked myself:

  • “Do I Wii-fit, or do I MarioKart?”

Sigh. All I’m gonna say is that I guess Terrance will just have to be EXTRA HARD on me tomorrow HOHOHOHO.

Did it just get weird in here?
