After the overly smokey-flavoured rainbow trout (see “ate #172″) I decided to try flavouring myself… which with fish is pretty easy… a large dollop of butter in a pan on medium heat (so it doesn’t burn the butter), season the fish with seasoned salt, cracked black pepper and dill. Fry away. Yum. Awesome show, great job. Need to get a fish cooker for the bbq.
Babies first two or three days find a black, tar like substance in their diaper instead of, well, poop. This black substance is meconium, comprised of intestinal epithelial cells, lanugo, mucus, amniotic fluid, bile, and water. Unlike feces, meconium is sterile and doesn’t really smell, but, jesus it’s a bitch to clean.
With a “10 Years Later” featurette with the main stars, what came through most clearly was how much the cast enjoyed making the movie and even more how much they still enjoy the movie. Knowing that the cast would love a sequel but also that the Coen Bros. don’t do sequels is slightly aggravating.
There’s a great feature called “Jeff Bridges Photo Gallery” where Bridges narrates his way through a photo album he made of photos he took during the shooting. It’s an absolute delight, as Bridges revels in the memories, some fresh and some half-forgotten as he flips through the pages, like some read-along kids show on PBS in the 70’s.
There’s also a location map, for any Lebowski pilgrims to find the places (although two of the sites have been torn down and made into schools, including, sadly, the bowling alley) and a mini-documentary on the Lebowski convention and the “Achievers”.
Unfortunately, no commentary (I’d take a triple dip for a cast commentary… I’d even switch to Blu-Ray).
