Two-Toned, interlude

..Culinary fighters from all over the world, here for the prize above all others. A single recipe that could change the world, it’s fate in the hands of a single chef.

..Carbohydrates, when heated turn to gold, it’s a fight just for the bold. Every body get ready, it’s time to win the perfect bread. Before it’s over, I’ll be the champ when you’re defeated.

All ingredients assembled, utensils clean and calibrated…

“T-t-time to get kneaded.”

..For the pursuit of the swirl, for the pursuit of the swirl…

Competition is the answer when talk is cheap and there’s too many chefs—in the kitchen.

For the pursuit of the swirl…pursuit of the swirl.

–from Super Awesome Bread: Battle for a Better Slice! the Musical. Written and directed by Arugula Jersey-Taft, 1989, New York, NY.

Lyrics from the introduction song, “Pursuit of the Swirl,” lyrics written by J. B. Dandelion-Bradford.

The theatre production was a huge success, until producer Arugula Jackson-Taft heard about it and promptly sued for production rights, in 1990, claiming she came up with something similar a year earlier.

3 a.m. crawl

Late at night I’m up thinking, worried and so blue, worried about my baby, does she think bout me too?

I think bout what the day brings, what will bring to me, that’s when the light dawns and I begin to dance. 

– from Diller D Chiller French’s “lizard thoughts in winter” Craftermath Records 1974

On a roll, interlude

Jala-jala-jala-peño and shredded cheese, you mean the world to me chosen o’er other sides, Cause hot and spicy’s the way to be on a roll.

Hot-hot-hot and spicy together at last, inside an omelet made so fast, Cause hot and spicy’s the way to be on a roll.

Me-me-melted butter, merry-go-round, sizzlin’ in a skillet, hear the omelet singing, our destiny is on a pan-seared bun

Jala-jala-jala-peño and shredded cheese, you mean the world to me chosen o’er the other sides, cause hot and spicy’s the way to be on a roll.

-lyrics from 1970s R&B sensation Pan-Seared’s hit single “Jalapeño and Cheese Omelet on a Roll”
