Cooked grouper will usually stay good for 3 to 4 days in the fridge and 4 months in the freezer. The FCC (Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission) manages the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean differently, and it’s important to know what’s in season and what toucan harvest from each shoreline.
The Gulf of Mexico is a unique body of water that provides commercial and recreational anglers plenty of fishing opportunities. The Gulf covers most of Florida’s west coast, from Pensacola in the Panhandle to the start of the Everglades at the tip of the peninsula.

While the most recent album certainly has its lovely moments, there's also something particularly dark and disquieting within all its loveliness. If the title doesn't cast a shadow over your listening experience, try falling asleep to this record.
Luckily, Harris's confident reassurances of the adequacy of her own responses eliminated a fair amount of superfluous chatting and led to a much more chill conversation: a dialogue touching on Portland zines, Northern California locales, “singer-songwriter ego,” her current tour with Animal Collective, and, of course, The Goodies. The word “beautiful” often appears in reviews of your music.
What's your take on people describing your music as “beautiful”? I think it's nice when they notice the opposite side of it too though.
Yeah, I mean it's more of a reference to whoever is making the music than the writing process. Kind of less like a “singer-songwriter” as opposed to, say, LIZ HARRIS in all caps, or something.
No, I don't think it has anything to do with the sound except the fact that living in Portland affords me time and a sort of supportive community in which to do music. Because even, I mean, the first couple years I was in Portland making music, like, I wasn't friends with anybody there yet, really.
Fake Your Own Death is a little magazine that's really small-run; it usually has lots of hand-done stuff -- prints and whatnot in it. My friend Nissan does that and I have some drawings in that magazine that's going to come out in July.
I have a studio in town... mostly drawing and doing lots of silk screening. I'm going to do a show in San Francisco next year with video and drawing.
A lot of people I know say “You need to only focus on one thing, and if you spread yourself out in other forms of art, it makes your work suffer.” Some artists believe it keeps you sane to be able to, y'know, not get stuck in one thing.
On some level that informed what I ended up doing with a lot of the rest of the songs. That's interesting because I didn't know if I was speculating too much, but, to me, when I listen to your last record, it sounds to me as if it could be recorded late at night or even the early morning.
There's a certain atmosphere to it that I can't really put my finger on and that's the best way I could describe it. Yeah, my creative side doesn't wake up until, like, ten o'clock at night.
And I've also been working a nine to five job the last... for a long time! In September, supposedly for real, I'm really not going to have a regular job.
I'm actually going to be visiting my friend Sam who lives in Portland in a couple of weeks. It's a really pretty little town right on the water where they filmed The Goodies.
I should probably let you get back soon, but you're still on tour right now with Animal Collective, is that right? And they have, like, y'know, one to two thousand kids coming out like every night to see them...
But I get to dip my toe in and go on this summer camp adventure for a little with some really, really nice people. I met Dave in... y'know, a long time ago because I lived in this warehouse in Oakland, and they came out with Black Dice and played the first show we ever did.
But I met some of those guys then, but it's mostly through meeting David in New York. His wife , I played a show with, and we had done some music together.
