Clam Bake and the end of the DinosaursSeptember 19, 2012

I've been wanting to reappropriate the East Coast tradition of the Clam Bake to the West Coast for some time now.  But in order to do this correctly I wanted it to be something uniquely Oregon...so...you know, lots of gortex, huddled masses, driving rain...But alas the weather didn't cooperate and we had to make due with miserable Sunny, Windless, Shirtless,  80 Degree weather.  Here is how it went down:


We did some dizzying stargazing/existential musing.  And out of this maelstrom of cosmic creation... 

A lonely dinosaur was born.

To celebrate this monumental occasion we sacrificed two healthy male dungeness crabs, 6 innocent ears of corn, 50 virgin clams, and 25 Jezebel oysters.

These beautiful sacrifices were anointed with the finest of seaweed and Session Black. 

The solemn occasion called for immediate viewing of "Life" to the tune of Rachmaninoff's "Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini in A minor, opus 43"

The impending ecstasy of this sacrosanct occasion called for circumspect measures.

Loved ones were kissed.

And with one wobbly touch of His Noodly Appendage...

The dinosaur came to life.

"With relief, with humiliation, with terror, he understood that he too was a mere appearance, dreamt by another." -Borges
