I made tteok the other night, it's these weird Korean rice cakes that are sorta pasta-like. I mixed it in a spicy ground pork ragu with bok choy leaves and gochujang sauce. It was loving delicious, I can't even pronounce "tteok" but I'm totally gonna make it again someday.

CIG people reading the thread: Tteok would be a pretty good name for a vanduul, but you have to pay me JPEG royalties if you use it

Go to Vom Fass on the strip if you like whiskey. They have a free event at 7 on I think Thurs/Fri/Sat where you get to taste different kinds of whiskey and learn how to describe them in terms that will impress people on the internet. It's good.

I'm not a big fan of Molyneux at all because i've been on the wrong side of too many promises of his, but holy gently caress this interview can eat poo poo. Straight up leads off with a "have you stopped beating your wife" question and somehow gets even worse from there.

Actually seeing Molyneux enter a dimension where the only activity that exists is being browbeaten by 'games journalism' is pretty hilarious

Does Swedish salt licorice actually taste salty? I saw Snowy Shaw eat some that was supposed to be 'the strongest licorice' and he seemed fine, but you'd think that kind of thing would dry out your mouth.

Is there cool advanced tech in it? All i know is it has something called spice in it and maybe there are big worms.

There's lots of fun tech stuff but it's largely wrapped up in the even more fun political stuff. Space travel is entirely controlled by a group with a monopoly because going from one planet to another requires you to make the point you're at simultaneously co-exist in the same place as the one you want to go to, like in Event Horizon, and they're the only ones who can do it. So they get to make all kinds of absurd demands and literally everyone hates them for it, but you can't get your army anywhere without playing nice, so everybody is simultaneously sucking up and trying to find a way to make an end-run around the Guild.

Seriously, Dune does political intrigue better than anybody. In the first two chapters you find out the bad guys have a traitor in the good guys' ranks. Most of the time that would be it and the author would try to make it a mystery but instead the villain just straight up tells you 'this is who my guy on the inside is, and here is my plan for him'. Then you get to go through the next part of the narrative knowing this guy's a traitor and seeing how it colors his interactions with the rest of the group and understanding his motivations and why he decided to betray his friends who have been good to him (and who he has a lot of affection for) and how it's tearing him up to do it but he has no choice, instead of the plot being consumed with 'hmmmm who is the traitor, it's a mystery'.

Dune owns.
