I keep trying to come up with a way to create for the last several days and I just can’t figure out anything to make that hasn’t already been done. I feel that my generation is the one that is finally receiving all the negative things that the past generations have just been pushing off again and again. Unemployment is sky high, the air and sea is making us sick, you can’t walk around your city or town without having to deal with being bothered or hurt by some random wacko or in a increasingly disturbing trend law enforcement.

The best and the brightest of my generation will never have a chance to do anything it seems. We struggle to hold on to meaningless underpaying jobs with no future to survive. Most have given up by now that we will be able to accomplish anything with our lives and while we regret this there is very little that we can do. The “change” that was supposed to come has not, things are just the same now as they were before. Perhaps we are all gullible but you know after eight years of George Bush hell you just hope to see a clear sky for a change.

So, we just sit here on our Facebook and Twitter trying to cover up the reality we have around us by watching “reality” television and reading tabloid magazines. It is the pepper you put on top of bland food to try to cover up the lack of taste.

I just want to know who to blame.

I got a craving for them around Christmas and went looking around in vain for a cow tongue. Thankfully a friend of mine had gotten a couple of cows slaughtered and had the tongues in the freezer to go unused.

So without further ado here is Tacos De Lengua.

1 or more Beef Tongue
1 1/2 Onions (White or Yellow are fine)
5-7 Cloves of Garlic
1 Bunch of Cilantro
Salt and Black Pepper to taste

Optional but highly recommended

Fresh or Dried Chiles (I happened to have some dried Anaheim peppers)
5-7 Whole Cloves, cracked
A couple of dashes of your favorite Hot Sauce

Fresh Corn Tortillas
Fresh Salsa or Pico de Gallo
Lime

Here is the main players

Taco1

As you can see I have 2 tongues that I am going to make. Why? Because this takes forever to make and I want some leftovers.

Let’s look inside the package why don’t we?

Taco2

As you can see mine are already cut in half. You will most likely have to do this yourself if you buy a fresh one to fit in your pot.

Quarter/Rough chop one of your onions and skin your cloves of garlic. Fill up your largest pot up about 3/4th of the way full with water or beef stock (I suggest water). Put in your onion, garlic, a good handful of cilantro and whatever optional ingredients you decide to include into the pot. Bring this to a boil, then add your tongue. Lower the temperature to a simmer and cover slightly.

You should see something like this.

Taco3

Now you wait. For quite a while. The official time is 50 minutes per pound. I tend to cook mine a bit longer just to be sure. You don’t want to under cook this since the tongue will be tough and the outer skin will be hard to take off. Mine all together took 8 1/2 hours to cook. Make sure you stir it every 45 minutes or so. Add more water if it looks like it is getting a bit low. I had to add about 3 cups of extra water to mine over the cooking time.

By the time it is done your pot should look something like this.

Taco4

Take out your tongue and let it cool for a bit until it is safe to handle.

Taco5

You need to take off the outer skin while it is still hot/warm. If you cooked it long enough it will come right off.

Taco6

The tongue will look and feel like really good pot roast at this point. You have a couple of options. You can shread the tongue like pulled pork, put it into the refrigerator to let it firm up and slice it thin or do what I do and most Mexicans…chop it up fine and fry it a bit so the edges are crispy!

Taco7

I just put a little bit of oil in my skillet, put a little chili powder, cumin and garlic powder on the tongue. Dump it in and basically stirfry it for a couple of minutes.

While that is happening get out a frying pan and put it onto high heat. You want to toast your corn tortilla slightly. Put it into the middle of the pan and slowly move it around with the tips of your fingers or another utensil if your not as adventurous. Once you see a little bit of a charmark on the side, flip it over and do it again on the other. The entire process takes about 2 minutes. If you want heat up two plates under hot water and put them face to face with a dishtowel inside. Place your tortillas once warm into the towel and it will stay warm long enough for your meal.

Once your tortillas is ready place some tongue inside along with some diced onion, chopped cilantro and a bit of fresh pico/salsa. Eat and enjoy!

Well it seems as if Daft Punk played a set at Heist last night and is rumored to be playing at the HARD Halloween Mansion tonight. Someone better get me some video or audio.

Ok I am utterly convinced that people of college age are perhaps the stupidest people on the planet at the moment. I recently worked at a place that did faxing. Now sending a fax is pretty straight forward. You have what you need to fax, the number and cash if need be. Now, up until lately I was pretty sure you could ask anyone over the age of 10 what is the difference between a local and long distance phone call and they could tell you. It is not exactly rocket fucking science.

Flash forward to me asking if the fax was local or long distance. “Ummm.. Local, it’s in the state.”

Now you are going to try to tell me that you are smart enough to be able to goto a fairly well respected University, yet you do not know the concept between local and long distance? What makes it even better is when you explain to them the difference they give you a look that a inbred dog gives you. It is almost like the concept is just too much for their limited intelligence. Then you dumb it down to near retard level and they seem to understand the concept, almost like no one had ever explained it to them before.

Now with foreigners you can almost understand them not getting the concept. The greatest one I ever had was a guy sending to a fax to India. I ask him if it was local, long distance or international.

He goes “Local, like on planet Earth.”

Now correct me if I am wrong but I don’t think we are sending faxes to Mars yet, and even if we were I think it would be interplanetary. Your fucking fax would still be international because it is going to the nation of India. You stupid fuck.

Honestly. I weep for the future because these are the people who are going to be in charge of my welfare in my adult diaper/kidney dialysis years.

Well it seems that everyone can access the site again. For those whom aren’t informed, my webhost had a explosion in their server room and took down my site and thousands of others for a couple of days. I am not responsible in any way since I have not been to Texas in at least 10 years.

Alas, bit news in the last several days and weeks. Obama is well on our way to becoming our next President. Spider-Woman is a Skrull Queen. Iron Man kicked all sorts of ass, Indiana Jones not so much. But most importantly our favorite midget Kayne West has not done or said anything foolish. Way to go Kayne! I am sure they buy your clothes in the adult section. At least he can make a entertaining video…

Why is every female on Myspace “in love”?

Not only are they in love, which there is nothing wrong with that, but they feel the need to advertise it with big flashing animated gifs like it is a bad late 90s web ad.

Now I have no problem with people being happy or being “in love” (though I tend to question how anyone under the age of 23 can really know what love is but that is a entirely different subject) but in the days before Myspace, Facebook, YouTube and Web 2.0 people didn’t put stickers and paint on their cars to proclaim they are in love. Granted girls in Junior High School would write it on their notebooks but 18 and 20 something year olds should really be a little more mature than this.

Just because you have the ability to take terrible stock web photos and clutter your Myspace with them doesn’t mean you should. I mean I could paint myself Black and Green and run around the town screaming that I was a Martian but I am not for three reasons; 1: Its very stupid. 2: I am pretty sure I would get arrested for something and of course C…Err 3: It’s not really warm outside and I have to worry about shrinkage. Think about your Myspace page as how you present yourself out there. God forbid you are going to put on clothing in some of those god awful colors. Let alone the junk you put on there. If you have more Videos and Music playing on your page than you have ears, you have too much. Also not everyone needs to have whatever music you put on there blasting at full volume the instant they goto your Myspace.

Thank you for your time, I’m Djarum. Good Night and Good Luck.
