08.28.06Alamo Downtown The Alamo went crazy again and showed this great documentary (about garlic) with an all out garlic feast... garlic in the appetizer, saled, entre, and desert. Not only that, but they had a chef in the theater sauteeing garlic as we watched... wafting the smell into the theater, fibers of our clothes, and fabric of the seats for probably a week. It was great.

They also showed a short that Blank did right before this (he did Burden of Dreams right after this) called Werner Herzog Eats His Shoe... which was included on the criterion BoD DVD but is still great and also involves garlic! So what we ate wasn't shoe leather... but it still fit pretty nicely. The movie... for a doc all about garlic it is surprisingly good... mostly (as usual) because the subjects are interesting and funny and it's all cut together very well. And they cook so much food with so much garlic in it that even while eating the lemon sorbet dessert I still wanted more garlic...

So do people not like the smell of garlic? They call it the stinking rose but I don't really think it stinks... It definitely smells... a strong aroma to be sure... but I don't dislike it. Maybe that's because of the years and years of associating it with food that will taste good and give me the ability to melt steel with my breath... i guess if those things are wrong then I don't wanna be right.
