I’ve been using a lot of pig fat in my cooking recently. Yushi’s dad dropped by and left two big bowls of lard, a pile of Chinese herbs and a comment on my latest essay on China. The pig fat is for daily use, the herbs are for the month of rest Yushi will need (according to the entire China Granny Nation) after the birth and the comment … well it was to let me know that he’s got his eye on me.
I got this funk from Big Scott when I was in California. Just in case you don’t know, I urge you to check out the following:
The Brothers Johnson
Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings and just for good measure
If you don’t know Bill Withers, disregard the above and listen to him first, then you are allowed to proceed.
Man i love this music so much it makes me feel so good every day it makes my fingers move and my voice just lets go and i walk around in my snuggies singing and when i see Yushi round the corner in my old chupa i let out a laugh cuz she looks like a funky monk with that big belly and the faux fur sleeves rolled up so she can chop jiu cai up for jiaozi …
“Can we pretend, that from now on, there is no yesterday …
Paint a portrait of tomorrow, with no colors from today
There is a love that shines in your face sometimes
that takes my feelings and wraps them around your knees
but there is a shadow that is hanging in your heart sometimes
that makes my feelings turn back in on me … “
