Jan16 Mushroom Stroganoff Beef stroganoff was my favorite dinner growing up, and my very favorite part of that dinner was picking out all of the mushrooms in the sauce for myself. Now that I’m an adult and mainly a vegetarian, I decided to update the classic that my Grandma found on the back of a bag of egg noodles sometime in the 1950s. There are two ingredients that you won’t find in other stroganoff recipes that make this take on it completely different. Mushroom Stroganoff • 2 Tbsp butter • 1/2 C minced onion • 1 clove minced garlic • salt and pepper • 2 C sliced mushrooms (I like portobellos) • 1 C vegetable broth • 1 Tbsp vinegar • 4 oz tomato paste • 1/2 C sour cream • 1 bag wide egg noodles Design Crush
Well, my friends. We’ve reached the end of our time together here at No Ordinary Rollercoaster. And rather than end on some bullshitty lookback over the past five years and eight-hundred posts, or some pompously profound valedictory speech about how I’ve grown and will be forever changed, I’ll leave you with the very simple truth: No Ordinary Rollercoaster — Just Gay Enough

The thing about German-born Interior Designer Harry is. . . he is not a formula. His bespoke heritage pushes the boundaries of the current commonplace beige palettes. His unexpected and magical uses of color and objects are expressed in interiors of striking variety. The result of his vision is a bit of; fashion designer Matthew Williamson meets Auntie Mame in Manhattan. All about the sophistication of the mix, all about the statement.

geek with curves Star Wars has wound its way through my life in many ways and because of it, specifically because of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, I became more aware of the Herculean feat that is voice acting. There are talented people behind the faces of my favorite cartoon and video characters and though that seems obvious, I didn't really consider it until seven or so years ago. Since then, I've been following the work of various voice actors, and James Arnold Taylor is one of my favorites.
Detail from a photograph of World War I cryptographers trained by William and Elizebeth Friedman, Aurora, Illinois, early 1918. By facing either forward or sideways, the soldiers formed a coded phrase utilizing Francis Bacon’s biliteral cipher. The intended message was the Baconian motto “Knowledge is power,” but there were insufficient people to complete the r (and the w was compromised by one soldier looking the wrong way).Included as a pull-out poster in issue 40, Knowledge Is Powe is also available for purchase in an unfolded version suitable for framing. To see a large version of the full photograph, go here. Decoded version is here. How to Make Anything Signify Anything
What a 'Liberal Media' Might Look Like Editor’s Note: For decades now, the American Right has pushed the myth that the national U.S. news media is “liberal,” even though the owners are mostly wealthy corporations run by rich executives who generally favor Republicans over Democrats. And that was true even in the days before Fox News and right-wing-dominated talk radio. Even the limited inroads of liberalism in media have been under pressure in recent days with MSNBC’s ouster of liberal icon Keith Olbermann and AOL’s purchase of HuffingtonPost (raising new questions about Arianna Huffington’s ideological sojourns). However, in this essay, Lisa Pease contrasts what today’s media is versus what a “liberal media” might look like: I’m surprised that otherwise intelligent people continue to believe the myth that the media is “liberal.”

Pruning back the power of the executive branch - Pruning Shears I wanted to write about SOPA this week and thought Chris Hayes had a very nice segment on it. Since MSNBC doesn’t provide transcripts of his show I had to provide my own - which crowded out the blogging time. I’ll do a SOPA post next week, referencing this as needed. I did my best to get what everyone said correct and omitted most of the verbal padding (“you know?”, “right?”
