The latest Resistance is so great. Reminds me of my favorite author, Richard Brautigan. Books: Watermelon Sugar (surreal fiction), and A Confederate General from Big Sur (surreal comedy). He was the official poet of Berkeley for a while in the sixties.

SO - Tat, have you considered writing some short stories as a side project?

- Your huge fan,

it might be kinda fun if he made a book of just the resistance stuff.

in honor of tat's quest for tea, i may skip the chai i was going to make, and have some sencha....although i am afraid i am sufficiently non-ghetto that i will go ahead and use the strainer i have, rather than manufacturing one on the fly.

i suppose i could go ahead and swear at it some, though.

Nope, there's a new one today.

And it's gold.

I second that there should be a "Resistance" book. Or, the notes should at least be reprinted in the Sinfest books.

Was that double entendre intentional?

Oh, and I second the notion to make a Resistance book.

Errrrr,

We're talking about O cha right, so what do one needs a strainer for ?. While not familiar myself with the exact ritual, I do know you use small part of it and whip it, adding hot water at specific moments to create the oh so unctous green mossed like liquid.

But that was the point isn't it?, the noticing of feeling unright in doing something we're supposed to know from the womb; the stranger's gaze.

and another thing :
While I like O cha, ko Cha, oolong cha or kali chai; just try the stuff they have in Taiwan. While I apologize to those who think otherwise, to me Lipton is to tea what McDonald is to real food, something the cat barfed.

not an expert - but around here, anyway, the powdered tea is called 'matcha' i believe 'cha' is tea in general - o- is an honorific in japanese, isn't it? - so o-cha would be (i presume) really good tea. so it is probably leaf tea, and would need a strainer.

Does that mean that really good Noh Theater would be O Noh Theater?

Leave Yoko out of that please, she did enough damage in the music field Razz.

Yes, O in this case in an honorific. But writing kanji in roman alphabet can be misleading.

E.G : A friend of mine thought, for a long while, that Japanese were a bit daft to give a mountain a person suffix. It took Ms eagle a lesson in Kanji, to show the fella the errors of his ways.

Explaination : One of the possible reading of yama (moutain) is san, and san is the polite form to address a person. So when talking about Fujiyama or Fujisan...
