Lost Levels - Let’s (L)eat

ALL CAP QUICK NICE FOOD IN MOMENTS. NUTRICIOUS, CHEAP, EASY, TASTY; WE CAN DO ALL FOUR!  DIDN’T EXPECT THIS TO BE ACCEPTED. IT WAS. SO IT IS RUSHED BUT ALSO TRUE TO SPIRIT. IF I CAN’T WING IT TYPE IT, THEN IT IS CLEARLY NOT SUITABLE FOR THE PURPOSE OF THIS TALK.

FEEL FREE TO CONTACT ME (@BIGSHELLEVENT) FOR FURTHER CLARIFICATIONS.  BIG THANKS TO MY FOOD READER LUCY (@LUCYAMORRIS). HOW COOL IS LUCY? IS SHE SKIPPING READING THIS PART? <3

ALL FOOD ARE HIGH CUSTOMISABLE. HACKING AND GLITCHING HIGHLY ENCOURAGED.

LENTILS CURRY

REQUIRED TOOLS: POTS, FIRE, BLENDER

INGRIENDIENTS:

NEED: LENTILS (HALF A CUP), ONION (1), GARLIC (2 CLOVES), GINGER (2 SLICES), TOMATOES (2), PICKLED CHILLI PEPPERS (AS MANY AS YOU LIKE).

RECOMMENDED: CARROTS, POTATOES, CAULIFLOWER, CABBAGE, BEANS. HIGHLY RECOMMEND FROZEN VEGES HERE.

SPICES: STAR ANISE(1 -2), CUMIN, CARDAMOM PODS (ABOUT 6), CINNAMON STICKS, CORIANDER SEEDS, FENNEL SEEDS, PEPPERCORNS, CLOVES. FEEL FREE TO MIX AND MATCH, I LISTED THEM IN THE ORDER OF PERSONAL IMPORTANCE FROM MOST TO LEAST.

FLAVOUR THINGS: VEGETABLE STOCK POWDER (1.5 TABLESPOON), CURRY POWDER (1 TABLESPOON), CHILLI POWDER, SALT, SUGAR, FETA CHEESE, CORIANDER.

METHOD

FINELY GRATE GINGER

BOIL ALL THE INGREDIENTS IN A POT. CUT THEM FIRST IF YOU FEEL LIKE IT. I NEVER DO.

BOIL UNTIL LENTILS HAVE SPLIT AND ALL SOFT AND GOOEY.

BLEND UNTIL YOU CAN’T BE BOTHERED ANYMORE.

RETURN TO POT. FLAVOUR WITH FLAVOUR THINGS. I RECOMMENED A BILLION SPOONS OF CHILLI POWDER. FEEL FREE TO ADD AND RETRACT WHATEVER YOU FEEL LIKE ADDING OR RETRACTING.

SERVE WITH CORIANDER.

KIMCHI

REQUIRED TOOLS:  KNIFE, CHOPPING BOARD, RESEALABLE BAGS. 

INGRIENDIENTS:

NEED: CABBAGE. RED CAPSICIUM. GARLIC (4 GLOVES), GINGER (2 SLICES), SPRING ONION (AT LEAST 2 INDIVIDUAL ONIONS).

RECOMMENDED: WHATEVER THAT’S IN SEASON. MOST ROOT BASED SALAD VEGETABLES LIKE DAIKON, SWEDES OR CARROTS ARE LOVELY. BUT CONSULT YOUR WALLET ON THIS ONE.

SPICES: SALT (YES I COUNT IT AS A SPICE HERE)

FLAVOUR THINGS: CHILLI POWDER (AS MUCH AS YOU WANT. PREFERABLE KOREAN RED ONES, BUT ANY WILL DO), FISH STOCKING (1 TEASPOON), SESAME OIL (1 TEASPOON), RICE VINEGAR (2 TABLESPOONS), SUGAR (1 TABLESPOON).

METHOD

CHOP UP CABBAGE (OR ANY OTHER MAJOR VEG), INTO BITE-MANAGABLE BITS.

THROW CHOPPED CABBAGE IN RESEALABLE BAG. THROW IN SALT UNTIL YOU CAN NO LONGER BY ARSED TO THROWN IN ANYMORE.

SEAL THE BAG. SHAKE THE BAG. IF CABBAGE AND SALT EVERYWHERE, THIS IS A BAD BAG.

WHEN EVENLY MIXED, SQUEEZE ALL THE AIR OUT. SEAL THE BAG.

LEAVE IT IN ROOM TEMPERATURE FOR LIKE. A DAY OR SOMETHING. UNTIL THE VEGES LOOK ALL LIMPY.

RINSE THE VEGES UNTIL NO LONGER TASTES LIKE SPIRIT OF OCEAN

MANUALLY SQUEEZE AS MUCH JUICE AS YOU CAN. LIKE RINSING A TOWEL. LIKE SQUEEZING A STRESSBALL.

THROW INTO ANOTHER RESEALABLE BAG.

THROW IN EVERYTHING ELSE.  MIX EVENLY.

SQUEEZE THE AIR OUT. SEAL UP. THROW IN FRIDGE. SHOULD BE READY OVER NIGHT AT LATEST.

I-DON’T-WANNA SUSHI

REQUIRED TOOLS:  KNIFE, CHOPPING BOARD, LARGE BOWL

INGRIENDIENTS:

NEED: SHORT GRAINED SUSHI RICE*, SEAWEED. 

RECOMMENDED: WHATEVER YOU LIKE IN SUSHI, AND WHATEVER THAT’S AFFORDABLE AND IN SEASON. SOME RECOMMENDATIONS INCLUDE CUCUMBERS, TUNA, TOFU, CAPSICUM, CUCUMBER, AVOCADOS, LETTUCE, WHATEVER THE SKY IS THE LIMIT!

FLAVOUR THINGS: WASABI, PICKLED GINGER, RICE VINEGAR, SOYSAUCE, SUGAR (JUST A LITTLE BIT), BONITO FLAKES.

 METHOD

BOIL THE RICE*.

(*A HACK TO THIS IS TO BUY PLAIN RICE IN LOCAL CHINESE TAKEAWAYS. A LITTLE MORE EXPENSIVE, BUCKET LOADS CHEAPER THAN BUYING SUSHI).

DICE UP ALL THE FILLINGS OF YOUR CHOICE.

THROW THE RICE, THE FILLINGS, AND THE FLAVOUR THINGS INTO A LARGE BOWL. RECOMMENDED TO USE WASABI AND PICKLED GINGER AS GARNISHES NEAR THE END.  I WILL NOT GIVE HOW MUCH OF EACH TO ADD BECAUSE THIS IS HIGHLY DEPENDED TO INDIVIDUAL TASTE. ADD UNTIL DELICIOUS.

MIX.

SHRED THE SEAWEED AND SPRINKLE ON TOP. 

SERVE WITH BONITO FLAKES, WASABI AND GINGER. BECAUSE ROLLING SUSHI IS ONLY GOOD WHEN YOU HAVE GUESTS OVER AND YOU CAN EAT ALL THE FAILED ONES. (I.E. ALL OF THEM)

A Wanderful Postcard

Wander's beta testing is ready to go! 

We had this postcard available for launch, drawn by your truly. Then we figured, we are not going to limit the availability to only the handful of people who could present at a single place for a limited time period. 

So! We are sending you a postcard of us Wandering. If you are comfortable with giving me your address (PO Boxes are fine!) via email, I shall chuck you a single postcard with a few lines of what natural explorations I happened to come across; as well as a few blanks for you to send around too. 

This will continue until we ran out of stamps.

Game devs: Are you willing to speak to journalists that pull out of PAX? Game devs: are you willing to cover game devs who pull out of PAX?

It’s time to look for an alternative. Please email me shelleyylhu at gmail if you are interested. Australia is the most pressing place, but I welcome conversation from everywhere.

The downside of travelling a lot is that you lose the sense of urgency.

My favourite thing about Marble Hornets is how the creators appear to be such amazing friends. Same with HAWP.

Rejected autobiographical (lol) Twine pages #1

There are a thousand and one things wrong with you. Your self-deprecation isn’t one of them. 

The same weapons have been used on you for too long. At first you didn’t see them coming, so it hurt. Then you see the pattern. Like HIV, there’s only so many mutations. Like HIV, after long enough, you’ve seen them all. It took a while. After tasting every single one of the variations of the same lashing, you learned. 

It’s going to happen anyway. 

You’ve learned to be more capable than them. More cruel, more toxic. Unload your arsenal against yourself, and dare them to match you. Take it from someone you don’t give a flying rat’s ass about. You are self tickling and you are immune. You are the director, the scripter and the player. You’ve outdone all of them.

Come on, new challenger. I dare you to catch me off guard again. Winning. Winning and hurting. Winning and bleeding.  Winning and they can’t take it from you.

It’s on my term now. I am fucking invincible.

misery or something

but i get the ???? thing because hilariously bad intrinsic design means thats the only way to get the answer column to pop up

If you never had the epiphany of finding out your coffee filled tumbler is uncapped by noticing the map it drawn on your bed, clearly your name is not Big Shell. 

PS: If your Chrome tried to correct “tumbler” into “tumblr”, I’m disowning you. Big Shell, the door is there. You can take two pairs of pants.

The entire area smells like pot, which is very quite unusual in the granny area of Beijing. I expected this from the expat area of Beijing.

The only correct way of eating this is by catapulting across the room.
