fermented herrings and the horrors of the known?

I was checking stuff to do with fermented herrings for my sons’ birthday. (never had that before..)

how to eat: http://minareceptsamlingar.blogspot.co.uk/2007/08/fermented-herring.html reads very similar to http://www.sweden.se/eng/Home/Lifestyle/Food-drink/Reading/10-things-to-know-about-Swedens-food-culture/ and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DmaedvVBkV8…
I thought to get rivita (similar to swedish bread or/and some wraps and do so potatos, baked beens, fried + fresh unions, some fresh tomatoes, preppers etc., bread/pita/rivita and perhaps some perry or pear cider.. (need to find where to get a perry in town..)

Then it seemed like an idea to get some swedish film that Phoenix might like as well..
Searching through various swedish films via “swedish action films”, it suddenly hit me that I am not very interested in horror films because they seem to concentrate on UnKnowns. Stuff that isn’t seen, that is of or in the dark, seem to be the perpetrator object of horror..(??)
Where as for me, horror is actually the stuff I do know.. Stuff that is there starring at you daily.. Commercial artwrold, money, fake smiles, rituals, habits, MacDonalds’, my ISP, rare metals in my Phone – just my phone!!! – etc. – that Is horror!!!

One reply on “fermented herrings and the horrors of the known?”

had the said herring yesterday.. was rather good, i thought.. a bit on the salty side – but that apart.. the stench was not as much as people made it up, and was somehow attractive.
we went outside to eat it as a picnic.. next time i’d be happy at home..
