https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Vienna

 

Several culinary legends are related to the Battle of Vienna.

One legend is that the croissant was invented in Vienna, either in 1683 or during the earlier siege in 1529, to celebrate the defeat of the Ottoman attack on the city, with the shape referring to the crescents on the Ottoman flags. This version of the origin of the croissant is supported by the fact that croissants in France are a variant of Viennoiserie, and by the French popular belief that Vienna-born Marie Antoinette introduced the pastry to France in 1770.

Another legend from Vienna has the first bagel as being a gift to King John III Sobieski to commemorate the King's victory over the Ottomans. It was fashioned in the form of a stirrup to commemorate the victorious charge by the Polish cavalry. The veracity of this legend is uncertain, as there is a reference in 1610 to a bread with a similar-sounding name, which may or may not have been the bagel.

There is an often recited story that, after the battle, the Viennese discovered many bags of coffee in the abandoned Ottoman encampment. The story goes on that, using this captured stock, Franciszek Jerzy Kulczycki opened the first coffeehouse in Vienna and one of his ideas was to serve coffee with milk, a practice that was unknown in the Islamic world.[42][43] However, this story was first mentioned in 1783; the first coffeehouse in Vienna had been established by the Armenian Johannes Theodat in 1685.[44]

 

Croissants, bagels, coffee, and Sobieski, that's like four of the seven main food groups!  (The other three are onion, potato, and kielbasa)

 

The video has subtitles in Polish.  I don't speak Polish except for some very few swears (swearing in multiple languages is essential to a full life) but as a MAD Magazine reader, it amuses me to no end that "potrzebie" is an actual word.

I've been listening to a lot of Windhand lately. I love, love, love stoner/doom metal. While listening to Windhand's newest album, I discovered that Dorthia Cottrell (singer for Windhand) has a solo album.

It's pretty damn amazing. She has such a haunting and heartbreaking voice.

Sputnik Music pretty much summed up her album: "Review Summary: Folk music in the moonlight, in front of a campfire, sang by a witch."

LOL

Eminence Front - The Who

Vintage Who. Gotta love them, especially this song. One of my favorites.

Album Version

"It's a put on!"

This song is amazing, because it's quite unlike most of The Who's other work. All good, mind you. But this particular song seems to bridge the gap from rock, to jazz, and then to funk. All this early on in their careers.  That's why it's so amazing.

Sometimes a friend texts you over relationship troubles over the same mess you've already seen before. And then an old country song pops in your head and won't go away, making you judge your own thoughts entirely too much.

Come In Out of the Pain - Doug Stone

Atleast it's a good song.
