about

The Bushwick Book Club Brooklyn, New York

We started in January 2009 playing songs written in response to Kurt Vonnegut's Breakfast of Champions. We haven't stopped since. We've written & performed songs inspired by everything from "On The Origin of Species" to Dr. Seuss to Raymond Carver. There are BBCs popping up nationwide now. Bushwick Book Club Seattle started in 2010 & is run by Geoff Larson. Our nerdy dare-devilry knows no bounds. ... more

Track Name: Jessie Kilguss - Mastering the Art of French Cooking
When I was just a little girl
I was friends with a little boy
His Mom worked for Julia Child
On her tv show

She’d cook up a nicer looking version
Of what Julia was making on her show
camera cut at the end
And Julia would pass off as her own

Mastering the art of French cooking
I’m not even gonna try
Leave the kitchen to the experts
And the cooking to Julia Child

Someone’s Dad was telling me
back in the day this book
Revolutionized American kitchens
changed the way people cook

So far since I’ve bought it
It’s been sitting on my floor
Revolutionized the way I hold my window open
Not just a book, it’s so much more!

Mastering the art of French cooking
I’m not even gonna to try
Leave the kitchen to the experts
And the cooking to Julia Child

PS what is up with her voice

Mastering the art of French cooking
I’m not even going to try
Leave the kitchen to the experts
And the cooking to Julia Child
To Julia Child
Track Name: Hilary Downes - Masters of The Table
Masters of The Table

baby it’s no joke
the element is near
these embers hours do stoke
the recipe is clear

we are just two parts
both live in our shells
united in our hearts
cast in iron we swell

pleasure here is infinite
when ¬¬¬the chef is able
loving concentration makes
masters of the table

peasants, princes, presidents
develop your own style
midwifes, minstrels, magicians
trial after trial

tossed into the dark
stirred by fate’s long limbs
practice all the moves
until the fire dims

a tender golden oval
where our souls collide
smooth and savory
our nourishment and pride

pleasure here is infinite
when ¬¬¬the chef is able
loving concentration makes
masters of the table
Track Name: Susan Hwang - List of Equipment
A list of equipment. Here’s what you’ll need.
A mortal and pestle to crush up the seeds
of optimism into a flour
to dust everything that you devour.

The readjusting of standards
goes hand in hand with
Looking on the bright side
And remembering, we’re all gonna die.

A wire whip for what it’s worth,
Turns heavy cream into a fluffy mirth.
A large balloon whip to froth and to mix
with self forgiveness if you can find it.

When you’re feeling bad
And you need a hand
Against the doomy forces
Cheer up, we’re all just walking just walking corpses.

Here's what you need.

All friendships must be an eighth inch thick.
Keep them fortified or risk getting sick
From toxic reactions that tragically
turn them into burdens as bad as family… Yech…

Coping with decisions
that you regret
tou’ll need a forgiveness mill
and a compassion press.

Non-stick friends
Non-stick emotions
Non-sadness
Non-stick thoughts
Keep them away from kooks and non-cooks and don’t expect the surfaces to last forever.
It's what you need.
A list of equipment.
