I Like ‘Em! (These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things)

One thing for certain about this little old world of ours is that it holds an overwhelming amount of content geared for human discovery and consumption. Travel destinations, food stuffs, movies, automobiles, political causes, you name it . . . there’s always something for us to get excited about and sink our teeth into, if we are so inclined. Which, no doubt, nearly every one of us is. Myself included.

This story, then, shall be a look at a few things that have rung my bell quite nicely as of late. In the upcoming paragraphs I’ll expend wordage upon this motley group: a television series (Ozark), cheddar cheese, and the song (Texas Sun) that has captivated me more than any other recording so far during pandemic-plagued 2020. And I’ll be glad to hear about what has been tickling your fancies recently. So, please don’t be shy about letting me know.

Let’s start with Ozark, the Netflix series whose third season was unleashed earlier this year. My wife and I watched all three seasons over the past few months, taking a two or three week breather between each arc. (The fourth and final season is on the drawing board, but who knows when filming will be able to begin.) We became hooked almost from the get-go, as have millions around the globe. Not so one of my cousins though. When I mentioned Ozark to her during a phone conversation not long ago, she said she’d seen a few minutes of the show but that’s about all. “I don’t want to watch all those sleazy people” was more or less how she summed up her feelings about Ozark.

Sleazy? Indeed! That word damn well fully applies to many of the show’s characters. It barely indicates, though, the depths of their polluted natures.

In Ozark we learn the tale of a married couple, Marty and Wendy Byrde (played, respectively, by Jason Bateman and Laura Linney) that is ordered by a Mexican drug cartel to abandon their home in Chicago and relocate, with their two kids, to central Missouri’s Lake Of The Ozarks. LOTO, an enormous man-made lake and a popular vacation spot, is surrounded by rural territory populated with all sorts of unsavory individuals.

Why did the cartel so demand? Because Marty, a buttoned-down financial wizard who years before had agreed, foolishly, to become one of the cartel’s primary money launderers, through no fault of his own got on the cartel’s very wrong side. Via astonishingly quick thinking and quick talking, he avoided execution by convincing the cartel’s top brass that he could make and launder enormous monies for them in, of all places, the Lake Of The Ozarks. Turns out he was pretty right as rain, though establishing the mechanisms that enable that to happen send Marty and his family down hellish paths that in a million years they otherwise wouldn’t have imagined could emerge. And their ordeals gradually bring out the worst in Marty, and the scarily worst in Wendy.

I can see the show’s writers rubbing their hands gleefully as they came up with plot lines that continuously elevate the dangers and other mega-problems that Marty and Wendy must confront. What a series! Prominent cast members regularly meet their demise. Dirty-dealing and treachery reign supreme. Ozark isn’t for everybody, as my cousin demonstrates, but, if you’re not already a fan, it just might be for you.

Now on to cheese. I’ve been a cheese lover for many moons, and cheddar is one of my favorite types. But not the mild kind. I like cheddar that is bold, aggressive and memorable. Those are qualities, by the way, that yours truly sorely lacks.

But it never has been easy for picky me to find cheddars that I deem outstanding. Vermont, for instance, is famed for its cheddars, but I’ve yet to taste a Vermont cheddar that truly knocks my socks off. Thankfully, about four years ago I stumbled upon Old Croc cheddar, which is produced in Australia. The brand’s extra sharp version pleases me deeply. As does a very recent discovery of mine: Sartori’s aged and sharp cheddar. Heavy with elevated flavor, and salty, it is the first American-made cheddar to receive my seal of approval. Take a bow, state of Wisconsin! Pieces of Old Croc and/or Sartori have been my go-to lunch of late. They’re delicious as is, and even better when atop Triscuit crackers.

I wouldn’t dare eat those cheddars while listening to Texas Sun, however. That’s because the process of munching away would interfere with my ability to absorb this oh-so-fine song, which was released in February. A collaboration between vocalist Leon Bridges, who often makes soul music in the vein of Sam Cooke, and indie rock band Khruangbin, Texas Sun is a meditation on longing and lust. It is gently powered by a sweet and steady beat, and wafts upon the wings of dreamy guitar lines. I’ve heard this song many times on various radio stations, which indicates to me that it has found its way into the hearts of numerous music lovers and radio programmers. The best thing for me now to do is to get out of the way and allow you to listen. Here is Texas Sun:

    Ozark has flashed past my attention but hasn’t grabbed it but, then, we are not great film watchers. Mary doesn’t watch films very much as she has trouble with hearing and accents are a challenge for her. Cheddar is the everyday cheese here but we have a particular Irish blue cheese, Cashel Blue, which we particularly like and also, the various soft cheeses, Brie and the likes. Music – I’m now the deaf one!

    Plants, garden or wild, continue to engross me. Walking also – countryside walking; I cannot abide walking in town.

    Not at all exciting this morning is a visit to hospital – old man’s problems, as they say here, but nothing of consequence, just nuisance! All will be well.

    Leo is an Ozark fan – I don’t have the time to follow serials, unforrunately, but I did have the great thrill of being able to watch cricket on TV for the first time since it ceased being free to air in 2005. It was only a short form of the game…but such a treat’!
    Cheese….I have never found anything approaching decent cheddar in Costa Rica, so used to bring it back in my luggage when visiting my mother in England.
    Luckily there is a firm making French style cheese which I can buy on a local market…so we can enjoy Brie, Camembert and a really good goat cheese from them which would have passed muster even in France.
    I enjoyed the music…again, thanks.

    I, too, really like “Ozark,” but my husband, as usual, whines that it’s too dark. I want to note that while I like an uplifting story as much as the next person, few stories are too dark for me. I am fascinated by the less savory aspects of human nature and how easy the descent is.

    Love the name of that cheese. Glad you found a cheddar with snap.

    Finally, “Texas Sun” is a wonderful song—I really like Leon Bridges—and I am listening to it right now.

    Hey Neil – i’m kind of a cheese fanatic, too, that’s why I moved to Wisconsin. Well, maybe it was for a job, but the cheese is definitely a plus. I will treat your recommendation as a quest, and look for this cheese 🧀 when I make my weekly trip to the big grocery store on the other side of town.
    have you ever tried Black Diamond? from Belleville, Ontario about an hour and a half west of the 1000 Islands, good stuff with a bite, one of my granddads always used it for Welsh rarebit. Speaking of directions, your auto-spell has changed states for the Ozarks, I think they’re still in Missouri.
    and I have to put in a plug for my hometown, Muranda Cheese Co., that’s Tom Murray, who bred Holsteins for many years, and now makes amazing cheese, his Old Man Cheddar has a real kick, he now ships this stuff all over the world. His aged English cheddar is pretty excellent also.

    Having recently moved to the US, I have just discovered Old Croc cheddar and I must admit I was terribly confused. It is marketed as Australian but is not a brand I have ever seen in Australia. Initially I thought it was just another Outback Steakhouse (not Australian despite its marketing). You inspired me to investigate further. It is made in Australia solely for the US market and is closer in style and taste to cheddar available in Australia. I too like a cheddar that is bold, aggressive and memorable and have been disappointed by what I have tried so far here. Old Croc extra sharp is now on my shopping list.

      Ozark probably is one of Netflix’s most popular series. I’m fairly new to Netflix, and am totally amazed by the amount of its content. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week!

    My husband loves Ozark. He spends more time in front of the TV than me and this one has become a solo watch for him. My only impression of Ozark so far (he has the volume turned way up) is the profusion of F-bombs. I’ll go for the bold cheddar though. I’m hooked on the German series “Dark”—a complicated sci-fi thriller.

      Hey there. You know, there are SO many series out there — regular networks, streaming services, etc. It makes me think that maybe we’re in the midst of an era of unprecedented creativity.

    Ozark sounds great – I love watching sleazy people. I’m
    already a fan of strong mature cheddar.

      Yeah, Ozark is pretty addictive. One more season of the show is planned, but I suppose that filming won’t be able to start till a vaccine puts a sort of end to the pandemic.

      Hi. You know, the responses that I’ve gotten to this piece show me that Ozark is a lot more popular than I’d realized. Thanks for stopping by. Take care.

    I like Texas Sun very much – the rhythm, the sound, and the music. Have added it to my daily song list. Have been listening to jazz and Blues recently. A pure delight. Take care, Isabelle

      Hello, Isabelle. Your comments got me in the mood to listen to Texas Sun. So, I did. What a great song. It really carries you away.

    Ooo I also love cheese and like your choose of bold cheddar. Unfortunately, we do not have much choice here. The cheese we get is imported, not really any real producers here. So I envy you.

      Hey there. Thanks for the visit. Good, distinct cheeses make life better. Later today, for lunch, I’ll probably have one of the cheddars I wrote about!
