Sound,  I'll check that out later throw it on while I'm studying

Simple Pleasures / Random Thoughts crossover here.

When I lived in Vancouver there was a spot very near two of the flats I lived in called Siegel's Bagels.  Can't even begin to explain how scoff their bagels were, you could get all sorts off them, and they were open pretty much 24 hours a day so I often ended up there at 3am after a feed of cans and ate it sitting on the curb outside (takeaway only sure).

Anyway I thought lately about their Montreal Smoked Meat Bagel and can't get it out of my mind.  Unbelievable munch, layers of wafer thin smoked beef stacked up until they were falling out the sides, with mustard and a pickle on it, in whatever bagel you want (everything bagel being my go-to).  I haven't been able to find anything close to it since I got home.  The bones of a decade trying out different types of bagels, different pastrami, anything to get close to it but it is untouchable.  Just whatever way they cured the meat was delicious, it was peppery but not overwhelming, had a nice sweetness with the spice of it, and was crumbly soft to bite but stacked thick so you could get a good meal out of it.

Just look at this shit:

My wife came home with some plain bagels from Dunnes yesterday that were closer to this type of bagel again so the hunt is back on for some decent smoked beef.  I need to make one of these.

Morto for poor eejit Dave Kennedy, but things like this happening are absolutely a simple pleasure:

Ah fuck this is lethal

A glorious clip. Your one getting her photo taken with the rock is just the cherry on top.

Somehow or other I managed to Never hear a single Primus song in my life before 3 weeks ago.
Often heard of them, saw them mentioned as influences on other bands, heard Claypool mentioned as an unreal bassist, but never looked into them.
Fuck me, they are unreal.
I'm in the grips of a new musical obsession.
What a pleasure to have decades of a back catalog of music to enjoy.

I never took to anything I've heard past the first four (though it's a long time since I was last up to date with them), but Suck On This, Sailing The Seas Of Cheese and Pork Soda are all 5/5, with Frizzle Fry not far behind. Phenomenal bassist alright. Took a long time for them to click with me.

In keeping with the thread title: clean sheets.
