    It was at this gig that I first met Andrew Weatherall, I was standing near the back as the band played and got chatting to the guy standing next to me. I never recognised him and we got on well so when we introduced each other I then realised who he was. Of course I had a CD mix on me (Jazz Mag Numb 3 I seem to remember) and he was enthusiastic about the tracklist! We agreed to meet up at the aftershow party (I used to get invited to these things haha) and later that evening saw Meg White (of White Stripes) standing on her own at the bar but was way too scared/stoned to talk to her, but Andrew was such a lovely chap that night.

    Today I had to say goodbye to man's best friend. Hershey Dog was a beautiful chocolate lab/shepherd mix. I got him the year after I was divorced back in 2012. He was my pal in the empty quiet house when the ex had the kids. He was just amazing. He's been my constant companion and friend to the whole family ever since. My ten-year-old Son shared 'I don't remember life without Hershey.' I miss you Dersh!

    I posted here a few months ago looking for some advice, opinion & abuse on what steps I should take on my career. Got some sage advice as always. Thanks Internet Friends™. My decision was torn between whether to stay in a really comfortable agency role where I've been for 10+ years or move on to somewhere new which would involve more travel. A tricky decision with kids in your life.

    I sent out some cv's had a few skype interviews for different roles and got a final round call back for one role that seemed like a good fit. I didn't expect much as I hadn't done an interview in 10+ years - I thought I'd go through the process to gain some experience and see how it went. The final round interview involved a small project and presentation.... and I got offered the job!

    A little more travel needed now, but starting on almost double my current salary and will have the option to work remote 1-2 days per week so it should balance out nicely.

    After months of agonising over so many options and decisions, it all seems to have fallen into place nicely. Signing contracts for the new role tomorrow!

    Thanks as ever for the advice you beautiful people. xxx

    • I know the owner and no she doesn't want to redesign the label.fooler
    • And nor should she - it's a great label with a strong, distinct brand. Not everything needs to be set in [sans du jour] on a swiss so it stays grid :)Nairn
    • That said, i'd try and get a bit more contrast on the aardvark - black lines describing a dark blue body's a bit indistinct.
      ahem.

    Hot Sauce Thread!

    @Nairn:

    Since you're keen doing homemade sauce, have you given this a go?

    • Brad makes Thai hot sauce in front of Thai women working behind him. Classic.robotron3k
    • Nope - not ventured as far as fermented sauces just yet. I know Set was doing these, which piqued my interest.Nairn
    • Just waiting for baby to outgrow the need for the steam steriliser we have for her, so I can use it to sterilise jars for fermenting and pickling... :)Nairn
    • Nngh. I'm sure I remember Set posting a good fermented pickle how-to, but I'll be damned if I can find it. Not in QBN recipe thread, anyway.Nairn
    • I'm guessing it was either this guy's (Brad) half-sour fermented pickles, or maybe even Chef John's.Continuity
    • I'm, as often, making things up. He posted a wee bit here, but no complete how-to https://www.qbn.com/…Nairn
    • I would love to work with Brad. He just keeps the joy in the kitchen, and that's a severely underrated quality. Either the jokes flow, or cooking isn't fun.garbage
    • I spent 16 hours on a dish the other day, and it wasn't fun because I did it solo.garbage
    • Don't get me wrong, Chef John has mad credentials and knows what he's doing, but Brad would be somebody you want to really chop it up with.garbage
    • Agreed, Brad is super-cool. Just too bad they've altered his format a bit, and got away from fermenting since Vinnie left BA.Continuity
    • Everyone should watch Brad just for the entertainment value.deadsperm
    • My sauce:
      Frozen Capsicum pubescens (not sure if that made a difference) onion, garlic, peppercorn, sugar. 20% salt. Fermented for 2 weeks then blended.

    • @continuity Wait WHAT? Vinnie is leaving?!garbage
    • What happened? I'm out of the loop.garbage
    • Vinny went with Babish last year, there's an episode when Brad briefly refers to Vinny's departure.deadsperm
    • Yeah, Vinnie left last year, I saw it on his IG feed. :\Continuity
    • What a strange move creatively, going from BA to BWB. One would think shooting BA content is more creatively fulfilling than BWB's stuff.Continuity
    • Don't get me wrong, I think BWB content is great, just not exactly ... err ... action packed, and really formulaic.Continuity
    • Just took a look at Vinnie's LinkedIn profile ... seems he left BWB last year after 10 months, and went freelance.Continuity
    • I agree completely. BWB obviously knows what he's doing, I would eat everything that he makes, but he's 100% the hand-swatting kitchen snob.garbage
    • I imagine he'd be fun to eat with, less fun to cook with. I think he has a great nose for dish and flavor. But there's no fun in the process.garbage
    • For instance: I made a hangover breakfast of scrambled egg on biscuit with fatback chiffonade and a syrup made from an orange Red Bull.garbage
    • I think my favorite reaction to what I cooked is "OMG how did you do this?"garbage

    Signs your getting old?

    I installed Tik Tok to see what it is ...

    Teens these days have access to things we only could dream of when we were 15 yo. I mean, 95% of the content on Tik Tok is teen girls being sexy in all ways you can imagine. When i was 15 yo, i had to watch the Sears catalogue to see woman's bras section, that was the most sexy material I could put my eyes on. Today with internet... its just endless material, they can see anything as soon as they have any interest in it.

    That said, I uninstalled Tik Tok. I was not comfortable with all this. And it made me think that the current generation is very different than ours, the Internet man... it just changed everything.

    • Tik Tok and Instagram is filled with millions of 'show youself and be sexy' videos and images. Where were kids showing themselve when you were 15 yo pango??Bennn
    • and when you open Tik Tok, its the "For you" content that appears and its 99% 18 years old girls shaking their ass and boobs. You can scroll that for hours.Bennn
