UAF supporters arrested at weekend

This came in the post from friends in Bridlington, UK (both pictured). I also have family living in Brid, so although I wouldn’t normally comment about such extreem issues here on mrmule.com, I feel that this is too close to home.
Mr Samms and Mr Meulen
“The two guys pictured above Mr Samms and Mr Meulen took great delight the previous Saturday in threatening to cut the throats of the BNP paper sellers – some of them retired women. These brave lads then proceeded to scream racial abuse at passers by, claiming they were doing so, “to educate people, and to illustrate what the BNP really stands for.”
Both were arrested for ‘making racial comments and intimidating people in the streets’ after police arrived following a complaint from a local shopper. Both were later released without charge. “

I won’t link to the disgusting website that reported the article.. but.. nice one Mr Samms and Mr Meulen!
Please do not let Bridlington turn into a racist community, do not support the BNP, challenge their ethics, but most of all tell them they are not welcome anywhere in any civilised community.
Please Please Please read this BBC Panorama news special and the Going undercover in the BNP both about the BNP and it’s far right attitudes

So TOYS!?!?
“WTF mule boy, you’re 31 (nearly 32) and you collect little plastic lego men and ‘bears’ !!??? i mean what’s going on??”
This is from “sweatyfrog.com
Kubrick figures are about 2.5″- 3″ tall. There are three kinds: LIMITED, REGULAR (aka Hikimono), and SET. “Limited” Kubrick Figures are found in special promotions, toy conventions, through mail-order, etc. Basically hard to find! Regular “Hikimono” Kubrick figures come individually boxed with 24 figures in a case. Their identity is unknown and what you get is a surprise. On top of this, the figures in each series have a ratio of commonality. Some figures are found 1 in every 196 boxes! YIKES! Needless to say, the rare figures go for a ton on Ebay. Some Hikimono Kubricks, like Maharishi DPM Identifiers are not assorted. “Set” Kubrick Figures come in a box set and are sold as an entire unit, such as [email protected] World Wide Tour. (but evrything has a price on Ebay)

Medicom Toys Japan took their Kubrick, added a big belly and bear head, and voila! – the [email protected] was born! Artists (such as STASH, FUTURA, KAWS, PUSHEAD) and licenses (such as Kill Bill, Universal Monsters, Hello Kitty) have used the [email protected] as canvas to create innovative designs, making [email protected] the first of platform toys to be born.

Utrecht photos

It’s quite funny what people take photies of when they come to Utrecht, I suppose it depends on which ‘skool’ you belong to, but it usually evens out to, the Dom tower, the train station/double decker trains, canals, random statues, graffiti…. there was even a shot some delicious looking pancakes… (admittably it was taken in Amsterdam though), so many thanks to Dave ‘aka Ronnie’ Letorey for allowing me to publish a few photies from a recent trip to the Netherlands.

Stuck on savory rice?

To kick off the new recipe section here at mrmule.com, I thought I’d introduce you all to a new favorite of mine, CONGEE (pronounced “kon-ji”) or Chinese rice soup. This was you can feed four people on one and a half cups of rice!
This is a pork recipe, but you can substitute the pork for any meat/left over roasts.
There is quite a bit of preparation involved, but I cheated last night and made it in about 3 hours.
