Agreed with Memories of the Future comments! Isn't there a part 2 due out sometime? If you've got any previews on that, it would be cool to hear :) (not that i'll be there...)

This is actually totally excellent. I would take out the laugh tracks and cocking of the head - it's a little too on point. Keep it slightly more subtle and it's brilliant.

Certainly steaming and adding oil later is the best option. Organic pig lard is available in lots of health food stores - no reason for it to be from a sick animal (just like any animal products). I bet you can find it from a local farm if you tried hard enough. When you say using veg oil "once", do you mean once a day? Most people end up eating it more than that. (That in addition to eating commercially raised eggs, which also have their omegas flip-flopped, causes long term health issues.) Also if you read my previous post I mentioned coconut oil as the veg alternative, which tastes and smells great.

Sunflower oil is like any other veg oil - it burns and becomes rancid (carcinogenic) at very low temps, and has its unsaturated qualities reversed, to boot. We need way more omega-3s (polyunsaturated) fats - which are flax, fish oil, seaweed, chia seeds. Unfortunately the SAD diet (Standard American Diet) is flip-flopped onto monounsaturated fats, which are veg oils. Too many cause insulin resistance. Saturated fats such as lard are good because you only need a little to cook with, and they hold up to high heat. Burning oil is like eating anything else that's burned. Causes cancer in the long run. The general rule with holistic health is - do what we've been doing for a LONG time. What have we been cooking with? Butter and lard. Veg oils are a new invention and way overused.

Yay you responded! First time evar :p Yeah there are a lot of rumors about what's "healthy" which are completely untrue. Like lowfat milk products - which are entirely dead and devoid of any nutrition whatsoever. Raw, whole fat milk products (or skimmed if necessary) are the way to go. Any more nutrition questions, I'm happy to answer.

Great recipe, the only thing I would add (as a Holistic Chef I'm obliged to) is never to cook with olive oil. I'm not sure who started the rumor that this is a good idea, but OO just dies above 120 degrees. If you need to use vegetable oil use grapeseed (not TJs, it's too refined) but the best options for cooking are saturated fats - coconut oil, ghee, butter and lard. They don't break down easily and you end up eating good fats instead of rancid oil. Plus, it tastes insanely good!

This is exactly why I never ask for a signature. The moment, the connection is much more valuable than a piece of paper. I'm there for the memory. I went up for Seattle's IFF a couple months ago when they were giving Ewan McGregor a lifetime achievement award. I had never seen the "celebrity mob" before, but boy did I that day. It was frightening just being in the crowd. People push and shove and will trample you just to get that blurry picture which doesn't say anything about their personal encounter at all. They were also having an honorary dinner for him afterwards if you donated to SIFF so I decided to do that. We all payed $250 to get in, and were reminded multiple times that signatures and photographs are not allowed. But by the end of the dinner, when the poor man was literally falling over from conversing all evening, there were several people who had been at the dinner the whole time who went up and thrust not one, but a STACK of papers at him to sign, and didn't even have the courtesy of bringing a pen. Amazingly, he signed them before excusing himself. I couldn't help but stare this one guy down with a look that said, "You are a piece of shit." Seriously folks. What the hell is going on in your head when you pull this kind of BS? I guess like you said Wil, it's some insane sense of entitlement. Bizarre.

Yes I'd definitely say that the tortured artist bit is where we get started - something inside us that is stuck that wants to get out makes us start creating. But as we age, those of us who are lucky enough to look at our own lives and creative processes from the side and not just through a lens of anguish, can start to enjoy the process, and still draw from the past but get inspired by the future. There's a pretty amazing thing that starts to happen when you shift from post-teen to becoming an adult. Creatively, I'd say that 30s and 40s are the best times to get it all out there.

Thank you, Wil. Your writing is very inspiring, and as I find myself where you were a decade ago right now in my life, I hope to find myself where you are now by the time I'm 40. It seems that 30s are the new mid life crisis, and I'm glad that we're young enough to have time to really figure out what we want and go for it. Have fun at the con :)

Very awesome. You can totally tell that moment was intricately timed and comes across just right, so kudos on the hard work. Can't wait for the episode :)

Boo ya. Someone else said it. Sorry that BRC isn't your thing, but we all have to find our own home. The desert has been mine for years but I'm looking for a new one now. Maybe I should try a con 8)

I really freaking appreciate your ability to be so present. You're keenly aware of your world, which is so cool it makes me do a happy dance. I hope to see you at E3 so I can tell you in person that you rock.

This is frickin' awesome. I am actually just getting into theater/acting/film... I've spent much of my life in music and computers, and looked at the stage from afar. But now I'm taking a longtime dream into my own hands, and what you're saying here echoes directly everything that's becoming clear to me. I'm working on creating a weekly practice, always with the intention of stretching myself, continuing to learn and interacting with others in the same medium. Over time I think I will find myself feeling more and more at home here. Thanks for all your writing, Wil - it's really inspiring. You continually remind me how important creativity is 8)

Just passing along a message from Denise Crosby & Claudia Mason - since you're back, I highly recommend seeing "Orpheus Descending" at Theater/Theater on Pico. It's running for 3 more weekends, so you have time. It was my incredible fortune to meet Gates McFadden who came last Saturday night to cheer Denise on. Anyway, you should go. http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/culturemonster/2010/01/theater-review-orpheus-descending-at-theatretheater.html

That's true on many levels. However, you can't get away from the fact that films in their more original format are unique. 3D will definitely transfer more and more to games, but films made for narrative reasons rather than for special fx reasons will always be around and desired. I worked on games for a few years and then left the field simply because I can't sit at a computer that much. I'd rather be on either side of a camera.

Hey, I have a '90 Honda Prelude Si, and absolutely love driving it! I feel the same way about San Francisco - it's a crazy place, but yields some incredible experiences and memories to last a lifetime.

I'm so glad that there are people out there who jingle and glow and levitate when they talk about their kids. Being a single mom I have to do double the levitating, and that can be tough. Especially when there is this odd uprising of women who can't stand the idea of pregnancy and childbirth (FB teaches you so much about people). It's good to hear that I'm not the only one who gets high off how awesome it is to have kids 8)
