This is Seth with Roger, who we met just now in a Michigan McDonald’s. Possibly the smartest man alive. Chatted about femtoseconds, the humor in quarks, dousing, James Joyce, what, why, and magic.  We’re on at 8 tonight in Detroit.

Friends!

Here is the brand new video for “Promiscuous,” the second single from our record, Time To Deliver. “The video finds the band as the playful arbiters of psychic violence and emotional terrorism, victimizing a colorful cast of unsuspecting characters.” Ha!  Directed by James PM Lee

Have you met The Saint? This Sunday, Not Blood Paint will be returning to Asbury Park to absorb and radiate some saintly vows in the name of rock & roll. What’s even more exciting is that we’ll be playing with our great friend Steve Nelson, the musical mage for the ages bringing it back home to Jersey.

Uncle Dougie’s Tomato Heaven Small Batch Ketchup

 image

I’m endorsing a ketchup. No, I am not bored. This is the first time I’ve felt compelled to endorse a condiment, and let me tell you, this is the one for me.

Now, I’ve always been a ketchup kinda guy – Midwest style. Sloppy Joe, meatloaf, and using potato chips as a scoop for maximum ketchup delivery. The food items that require ketchup require cups and cups of ketchup and the brand is always HEINZ. Well whoopty doo. Now, everything gets compared to the monolith that is HEINZ. So, I want to avoid high fructose corn syrup? Tough luck! Artisanal ketchups are all “interesting” but aren’t the ketchup I crave. Same thing happened with Prego brand spaghetti sauce. It wasn’t ground beef spaghetti unless it was MOM’S ground beef spaghetti, and only Prego would do.

Enter Uncle Dougie’s. This ketchup doesn’t taste like HEINZ, and it certainly doesn’t taste overwrought in the attempt to be unique. It’s subtly layered yet still as bold as a ketchup should be. It is chunky (usually a turn off for me), sweet with a perfect vinegar kick, and it has a hint of orange peel and burbon. Add to that the fact that Dougie keeps his sauces small batch and clean label, and the distinction between overly processed and fresh becomes screamingly obvious to the previously addicted t-buds.

It’s one of those ideal food times where you don’t find an alternate solution to satisfy the specific taste for which you’ve developed a habit, but instead find that the taste door has been blown wide open again. Ketchup doesn’t mean HEINZ. Ketchup can go anywhere! However, I’m gonna roll with Uncle Dougie for a while. Dude also make bloody mary mix, wing sauce, marinades, etc.

Summer tomato, tomato summer here I come!
