Lounging at the movies: Bowling For Columbine and Man Apart

Bowling For Columbine:

Michael Moore documentary on guns in America and why we kill each other with them. We found this to be an excellent and objective view of Americans and why we love to kill each other. Michael looks at American culture in a way most of many never see. He makes connections to media, our government and the American way. Highly recommended.


A Man Apart

Vin Diesel, a DEA officer on a mission to stop the flow of cocaine into the US from Mexico looses his wife to a murderous Cartel leader only known as Diablo. Tricky plot line and a lot of senseless violence, which I feel slightly guilty about after seeing Bowling For Columbine but a good shoot 'em up film where the good guys play like bad guys and the bad guys are really bad.

B. K. Lounge Eats: Ceviche

Ceviche's origins are from Polynesia but has been adopted by many cultures. In Mexico we enjoyed Conch ceviche, Shrimp ceviche, Octopus ceviche and am pretty sure one night we had a ceviche that was a mixture of many kinds of seafood. Basically ceviche is fish or some kind of seafood that is cooked by marinating the victim in a high concentration of citric acid, like what is found in lime or lemon juice. Citric acid caramelizes the proteins in the seafood bla bla bla bla and so on and so forth with the technical explanation. Ceviche is an exotic salad that is easy to prepare and extremely tasty. You can use any type of fish, shell fish, squid or octopus you like just make sure it is as fresh as possible.

• 3/4 lb Red snapper fillets; cut in pieces
• 8oz small shrimp, peeled and de-veined
• 6oz scallops
• 6 limes

• 1/2 cup white onion, chopped fine
• 4 serrano peppers; chopped
• 2 lg.tomatoes; finely chopped
• 3 Tablespoons olive oil
• 1/2 cup cilantro finely chopped
• 2 Tablespoons jalapeno finely chopped
• 1/2 cup white onion, chopped fine
• 2 Tablespoons oregano leaves
• 3/4 cup tomato juice
• salt to taste

To prepare seafood:
Place seafood in glass bowl and cover with juice. Marinate 6 hours or overnight. Drain and return seafood mixture to bowl.

Mix onion, tomatoes, serrano peppers and cilantro. Stir in tomato juice, oil, jalapeno peppers with juice, oregano and salt. Pour marinade sauce over fish, mix gently and marinate for 1 day in refrigerator. Serve in cups and garnish with chopped avocado and cilantro. This Ceviche recipe can be refrigerated for up to 5 days. Serves 6

Since ceviche can be made in an infinite number of ways yours may look something like this:
