I Can't Stop Going to We Be Sushi

I love sushi in all forms, and after eating lots of really good sushi all over the place I've become a bit of a sushi snob. Like, "is the uni fresh," kind of snob. So I like the pricey stuff, but I have to say that crazy-cheap standard-quality We Be Sushi is really pretty awesome, especially now in my more budget-minded lifestyle. We just went there tonight: five people, three of whom had Onigoroshi sake drinks, one of whom (ahem!) had two, and the total price was $89. Not bad.

The 16th & Valencia location is of course the better one since it's got the better appetizers and sakes, although for some reason every single time I go, they're out of hijiki. What's the deal? I mean, how hard is it to keep it on hand? And how many other people are actually ordering hijiki? It's kind of obscure, I thought. But it's totally my favorite seaweed, and every time I go there, I order it and the waitress goes "oh I think we might be out of it, let me check," and then they leave and come back and they're like "sorry!" We were there at 7:15pm, too, on a Saturday, so I don't think this is a case of a run on hijiki from seaweed-hungry customers. So, anyway, We Be: please make more hijiki, or, if my suspicions are true and you're not actually making any, please make some, or take it off the menu and stop teasing me.

The grilled shiitake mushrooms are a little rubbery too. But other than that, tasty fish goodness, plates and plates of it.

I'm Back?

I don't know how stupid it is for me to have three different places on the internet to talk about stuff, but I guess it makes a certain amount of sense:

It's where I post my musical productions and reactions to them.

2. Mother Jones "Riff" Blog
This is where I talk about music and stuff.

3. Here
Where I talk about me, and stuff I do, in ways that are perhaps a little more random than regular old

So are we clear?


Anyway, I had kind of forgotten that this blog site even existed. I created it before our last trip to France to DJ two years ago, thinking I would update it all the time, but of course the only times I was near a computer, it turned out to be a French computer with crazy messed up letters all in the wrong places. However, coming up in less than a month (!) I'm heading to a whole variety of different countries, some of which have normal keyboards, and I'm also bringing my own laptop, which means I can type with ease, and share with random readers my pithy observations, why not.

This is kind of a test post but I'm hoping it works.
