    Looking handsome bro. Yep, black is def the way to go.

    I'm still digging the Riviera. Such a quirky thing, feels and plays amazingly slinky. Doesn't feel cheap at all. It's got a lower action and is smoother playing and faster than my Tele. Bit of a revelation actually. Didn't think i'd get on with what is a famously a very narrow neck but it feels great to me. Still need to hoick out the harness again which to sort the wiring, which is a pain.

    Pickups sound great to me but the bridge is microphonic and will be a problem once I'm up at rehearsal room volume. Shame really cos I like the barky low gain-ness of it. Mid position is perfect for Meters and Grant Green and also keeps making me play lo fi dessert indie like Giant Sand and early Calexico. Been pissing about playing fingerpicked stuff a la Jason Molina covering Townes Van Zandt with a bit of gain, one amp with reverb and the other with slapback and tremolo. so much fun. Might try and post some clips later...

    I don’t use a breadknife. Always end up using whatever my sharpest chef’s knife is at any given point. Find the ragged cut and crumb spreadage caused my admittedly cheap old breadknife suboptimal. /Dammit

    *disclaimer: my chef’s knives are cheap too but I keep them sharp ish

    I read that as Man's Nangle for some reason. Oof.

    Well I just made Bun Cha for lunch. Great success! No pics because too busy eating. Had three pretty big leftover pork chops in the fridge, minced them coursely and added garlic, shallots, fish sauce and oyster sauce. Made caramel sauce for the first time in my life and added that. Made them into little patties and put them on a pizza tray under the grill. Without any starch to bind them, they're quite wet and fally aparty so you have to be very careful turning them. They go brilliantly sticky and crunchy though which I assume is the genius of the caramel sauce.

    The dipping sauce is just sugar, lemon juice, water, garlic and fish sauce to taste. Added a bit of light soy and rice vinegar to sharpen it up, as I found it too sweet without.

    Couldn't find any rice noodles in the cupboard so just steamed some rice and served it all up with fresh mint and corriander, beansprouts and some picked carrots. Would have served with fresh chilies if i had any. All in all, easy and delicious and far more enjoyable that the work I should have been doing.
