Monday Meal: Wiener Schnitzel

Wiener schnitzel is quite easy to prepare, provided you are organized and set up an assembly line-type prep station beforehand. Traditionally, wiener schnitzel was made with scallopine-type veal medallions.

Rep. Stewart's Moral Dilemma

Chris Stewart couldn't vote for a budget that includes funding for Planned Parenthood
It's Sept. 30, and you know what that means: Congress needs to approve a budget so that the U.S. government can continue to operate in the next fiscal year (starting tomorrow). But there was a fly in the ointment this time around, and that turned out to be federal funding for Planned Parenthood.

Wine Wednesday: Bargain Malbec

Thanks, in part, to innovations in winemaking technology over the past 20 or so years, you don't have to spend a fortune to drink good wine or to stock a wine cellar. And, like me, perhaps you don't have that fortune to do so even if you wanted to.

Hanson Music Works & Goods

Crafting old cigar boxes into musical instruments.
For those looking for a slightly different instrument that will catch the eye and provide a different tone than you’re used to, a local crafter may have just what you need. Hanson Music Works & Goods creates guitars from scratch using repurposed wood and old cigar boxes, giving whoever wields it a unique aesthetic in both the music they play and their presence on stage.

Two-Time Loser

When you can't get the goods, you need to know when to quit.
Sometimes, you just have to know when you're not cut out for the line of work you've chosen.  Just ask a certain 24-year-old male currently languishing in the county lock-up.

Salt Lake Comic Con 2015: The Wins & the Whines

Recapping the third Salt Lake Comic Con
Rather than rush to meet a deadline like many in my field, I held back and decided to let the weekend of Salt Lake Comic Con digest. After three straight days at the Salt Palace, I had a chance to experience some cool moments and some woes.

Salt Lake Comic Con 2015: Felicia Day Surprised Me

Web-video star shows how to be a Comic Con guest
As I sat outside the Salt Palace's Grand Ballroom at the 2015 Salt Lake Comic Con — observing a packed line waiting to get into the next guest panel, and listening to a volunteer repeatedly shout over a bullhorn "The end of the line for Felicia Day is in Hall E!" — one thought kept going through my mind: Who is Felicia Day? It's the nature of heterogenous popular culture that not all celebrities will be as celebrity-ish to all people, but I'm a professional who writes about popular culture, and her name rang exactly zero bells.

Local Releases: Rap, Rock & Soul

New albums from Mark Dago, Mimi Knowles and Gloe
As you read this, I'm knee deep in Salt Lake Comic Con stuff, so this entry is gonna be super short! The only non-release show album we're gonna talk about is the latest from Mark Dago.

Salt Lake Comic Con 2015: Inside the Panels

The Salt Lake Comic Con might attract the majority of its attention because of the celebrity guests it attracts to its Grand Ballroom, or the creatively-costumed attendees strolling around the massive show floor. But fascinating things are going on behind the doors of the smaller rooms, where visitors can catch thoughtful discussions in panel programming.
