This place

I know, my site has been neglected.

That theme, it was just too girly for me and I never wanted to put anything on it. I’ve reverted back to my favorite (and free) StudioPress theme.

I’ll post up something about what it was like to run fuckyeahbobakferdowsi.tumblr.com soon. As soon as the queued posts ever drops below 4.

Anyways, with that I need to reorganize into some simpler categories and make this place livable again. My websites to make list only has 10 things on it right now so this will surely happen by mid-next year.

Until then here’s an Instagram picture of Sonja

Teriyaki Sauce

Jason said he wants this again so I need to remember how to make it since I threw it together from an ingredient list pieced from 5 different recipes.

  • 1 cup Mirin
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp sake
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 6 cloves of garlic, cut in half
  • 1 big square inch piece of fresh ginger, cut in half

Simmer the mirin and sugar until combined. Add in all the remaining ingredients. Simmer uncovered for 15 minutes. Cover and simmer for another 10.

Rdio Playlist: 35 Songs to Get Up &…Work?

Working from home gives me the opportunity to dj my life for 8+ hours a day. I rely pretty heavily on Rdio these days as it has everything I loved about other streaming music services: artist specific radio stations, playlist, good coverage of new releases, and lots of indie and electronic. It also built on some things I didn’t like about other services, specifically the ability to listen ONLY to the artist you specified for an artist radio station, no overt p2p networking and it only costs $4 a month.

I spend a lot of time in darker droning music so I need something full of bounce and a little cheese to get me going sometimes. Here’s the 35 songs I’ve got on my upbeat get to work playlist currently. It’s good any time of the day but if I want to work after 10pm it’s the only way to go.

If you’re a rdio subscriber or if you have the free rdio account you’ll be able to listen to the playlist below, otherwise you will only get 30 second clips of each song. I highly recommend getting at least a free account as it does give you a decent amount of free, ad free songs to listen to each month. I signed up before I hit my limit but I listened for 2 weeks without running out.
