Handsome Party – The Conduit of Power

Sunday, September 14th, 2008
When you're the Conduit of Power, you must j.k. livin'

"The 'J' is for 'Just'; the 'K' is for 'Keep'"

Per the request of a certain reader (we have readers?) – a photo from Sunset Junction. When Pretty Handsome and Dirty Handsome combine using the coveted Matthew McConaughey-provided J.K. Livin’ armbands, awesome things are bound to happen. Like road sodas, some rocking music, or photos where it sort of looks like Dirty Handsome has arm muscle (we have arm muscle?).

Handsome Lessons in Frying Turkeys

This is the safe result you're looking for

This is the safe result you're looking for

As we alluded to in our first post, few things are more handsome than frying turkey. Below is our step-by-step recipe for cajun fried turkey. Of all the Thanksgiving turkey recipes out there, we promise that this one will impress relatives and be one of the easiest Thanksgivings you’ll ever have (…or tailgates, or parties, or whatevers).

Now I know what your wives, girlfriends, and (in our case) Handsome Association members’ girlfriends and wives will be all complaining and concerned about things like “safety” or “fire” or “a bobbing smoking turkey causing a cascading tide of oil spilling on your flesh.” Of course frying a turkey is dangerous and extreme. Why? Because everything awesome is DANGEROUS AND EXTREME. Like Powerthirst, for instance. There are 2 very simple steps to ensure that the process is as safe as lifting and basting a 20lb turkey in a 400 degree box. Recipe (with pictures from our Sunset Junction street fair fry!) after the jump. (Read on …)

Handsome Drinks – Infusing Tequila

Monday, August 25th, 2008
It all starts so innocently

It all starts so innocently

When the Sunset Junction festival comes to town, it’s Handsome to dig up some drink recipes and put on a show. Summer cocktail recipes come and go – oftentimes you get something too complicated, too sweet, or vodka cocktail recipes. For Sunset Junction 2008 we took a cue from WASPy Handsome and infused our own tequila.

Infused tequila has many advantages that other party drinks (try finding martini recipes that are this easy). (Read on …)

Suffice to say, it was that type of weekend

Suffice to say, it was this type of weekend

Sunset Junction, the annual street fair in Silver Lake bringing together indie rock bands, Bugaboo traffic, and men on leashes, is just around the corner (of a confusing 5 way Silver Lake intersections).

Broken Social Scene Continues to Handsomely Rock Our World

"Please remember your homework on Monday" - Prof. Canning

"Please remember your homework on Monday" - Prof. Canning

Broken Social Scene‘s Brendan Canning’s “Something For All of Us” is the second album in Broken Social Scene’s ongoing series of letting one of their near three million members take the lead on their own album. Their first try, Broken Social Scene’s Kevin Drew’s “Spirit If…“, was an excellent foray into loud, erratic, uneven, completely phenomenal Dinosaur Jr. homage (or Dinosaur Jr. partnership in the case of the single “Backed Out on the…”).  Something For All of Us is more even, a little quieter, put together – but not overproduced – completely phenomenal Dinosaur Jr. homage. Also awesome? Brendan Canning looks like a washed up community college professor.

The first single, “Hit the Wall” (video after the jump) is a solid song that begins to creep up on you after a view listenings when you realize the key change after minute three rocks your goddamned balls off. (Read on …)
