Suburban Wino 2: The Wordpress Experiment

Fighting the Man (and fun with Game) | August 2, 2010

Over the weekend, in an effort to be simultaneously cheap and avoid heading to the local market- thus requiring exposure to the inner ring of Dante’s 7th concentric circle of Hell (that is to say, the weather outside in Georgia)- I foraged the freezer for meats. Finding venison was a pleasant surprise, as I have neither acquired a deer myself nor even been hunting in almost 2 years. My father-in-law, however, had been up to his antlers in deer meat, so a recent trip left us with a hearty supply of game.
Venison, being of the particularly lean persuasion, makes a poor burger on its own. However, I desired burgers, so braving the blast furnace (not solace in the fact that my truck’s A/C is mostly broken), I ventured across the street to the local butcher to collect some precious beef fat. Oddly, it comes in little frozen pellets there, but fat is fat.
Cubed venison, beef fat pellets, and a little ground beef chuck for good measure made for a pleasant blend of about 78% lean to 22% fat (not healthy, but tasty). I wanted to document the process for all to enjoy, and for whatever reason, I was hell-bent on a quick photo documentary set to Earth, Wind, & Fire’s “Shining Star”. Maybe I pictured Elaine Benes dancing with game burger in hand…I don’t know.
Usually, I upload to Youtube, with the occasional inconvenience of WMG-owned music being removed from the videos. Often, I just find another suitable track. However, hell-bent is hell-bent, and I longed to have “Shining Star” as the anthem for ground deer and odd pellets of fat.
So, here’s the Blogger video. I’m sure it’s lower quality, but- dammit- it’s honest to my artistic license. And I hope it helps sell EWF’s music, and WMG doesn’t get any of it. Straight to some sweet new horns for the brass section.
