Thinking of making tomorrow a Steve Reich day, and now I'm watching this video on Different Trains.

So hard to comprehend how close reality is to the world presented by clickhole et al

@Sadsquatch could be like in that Final Destination movie.

@Sadsquatch it might be that Death is bored of taking lives and is instead designing scenarios where people are held back, kept late.

I'm looking for info about immersive entertainment in different countries, especially those where English is not the first language spoken. If you're reading this, maybe you can help?

I'm curious about immersive theater (like Sleep No More), escape rooms, puzzle games, alternate reality games, etc.

Things I want to know:

  • what are these experiences called?
  • when was the first one in the country?
  • what influenced it?
  • is it popular?
  • what came next?

@lauraehall recently having been to my first Escape Room, I was overwhelmed by memories of a TV show we had in the UK called The Crystal Maze.

Feels like these were cut from the same cloth.

@lauraehall It was just so shocking to me since I honestly hadn't given the show a thought at all for ... decades? Then it call came flooding back.

@lauraehall Separately, I had to look this up, I remember going to this live immersive experience that was tied to the release of Alien 3. Turns out it was called Alien War

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alien_War

Per the Wikipedia entry it was billed as a "total reality" reality experience, but I didn't remember. I went to Glasgow for this on my 11th birthday iirc.

@lauraehall Alien War was profound to young me! I didn't imagine, going in, some of our group being led through dark tunnels, chased by aliens were plants wired with squibs and alien puppets ready to erupt out of them. Some were snatched and hauled off by bigger aliens. Some were face-hugged.

Caramelizing some onion

onelson,
@onelson@mastodon.social avatar

Lowered the heat and added some balsamic vinegar

onelson,
@onelson@mastodon.social avatar

I'm not sure. I might have fucked this up by letting some bits burn. It's late enough that I will not be making my burger tonight so I guess I can always go back to the store tomorrow and get another onion if these don't look good to me tomorrow.

onelson,
@onelson@mastodon.social avatar

Yeah, I don't know. These look like pretty sorry onions to me.

onelson,
@onelson@mastodon.social avatar

I'm going to taste some.

onelson,
@onelson@mastodon.social avatar

I'm not a fan. I'm going to do this over tomorrow.

onelson,
@onelson@mastodon.social avatar

There are some good onions in here but they are outnumbered

onelson,
@onelson@mastodon.social avatar

Can't believe I have a spare zucchini but not a spare onion

onelson,
@onelson@mastodon.social avatar

Okay. Tomorrow I will be cutting the heat much earlier in the process. No problem. I will also try a yellow onion instead of a white.

onelson,
@onelson@mastodon.social avatar

@grumpasaurus I just didn't catch it soon enough. These should be like cooked noodles, not raw noodles.

onelson,
@onelson@mastodon.social avatar

I had read that caramelizing onions was a game of "medium high heat in oil/butter for initial color, then medium low for a long time after, splashed with balsamic as you go."

I wonder if medium high is a bad idea for cast iron users since the pan retains heat for so long.

onelson,
@onelson@mastodon.social avatar

Or maybe I need to switch to a different pan.

onelson,
@onelson@mastodon.social avatar

Or maybe I keep the cast iron but just go slow and low for the entire duration.

Totally Killer (2023)

I'm planning to cancel my Prime membership in some weeks, so I'll probably aim to "cash out" whatever I can.

Someone mentioned this one is fun, but I don't know.

onelson,
@onelson@mastodon.social avatar

@SnoopJ but probably not a real poster. Amazon Originals like this likely never saw a theatrical release.

onelson,
@onelson@mastodon.social avatar

idk this has some funny gags

@onelson@mastodon.social avatar

It's about time for me to start caramelizing some onion.

Actually, the time was like an hour ago, but I was wrapped up in something.
