Maybe With Some Pico de Gallo

August 7, 2011

Tonight, we had nachos for dinner. No, not the ones with fake cheese that you can buy at over-priced concessions stand at the movies. The kind you make at home, with Tostito’s bite-size chips covered in cheese, topped with sour cream, guacamole, and tomatoes. A good way to switch it up is, of course, the addition of cilantro-y pico de gallo.
Weeks ago, when first planning recipes for my blogging week, my father and I (or at least I) decided that one thing we absolutely had to make was pico de gallo.

Not because I greatly enjoy fresh tomatoes, onions, and cilantro. Not because it has a cool, foreign name. Not even because of its yummy delightfulness. Pico de gallo was a required recipe because you can eat it with tortilla-wrapped Megagirl units. If this makes absolutely no sense to you, I suggest you go watch Starship, an original sci-fi musical by Team Starkid. If typing in YouTube’s URL and searching for Starship is too much work for you (though I assure you, it is very much worth it), simply direct your attention to this video clip.

“One more comment like that, and I will wrap you up in a tortilla and eat you for a snack… maybe with some pico de gallo!”

This line is only one among thousands of hilarious ones thought up by the team, including, but not limited to, the following*:
“You’d think killing people would make them like you, but it doesn’t, it just makes them dead.” -Joe Walker as Voldemort, A Very Potter Musical
“This school has really gone to the dogs. Luckily next year, I’ll be transferred to Pigfarts!” -Lauren Lopez as Draco Malfoy, AVPM
“I think Bug is about to have a little accident involving his head and my zapper. Hahaha…. Then I’ll shoot him!” -Brian Holden as Junior, Starship

“I have to fight a goat? I don’t know if I can do that morally!” -Darren Criss as Harry Potter, AVPM

The Boss Zefron Poster

“That is a BOSS Zefron poster!” -Joey Richter as Ron AVPM

“I WANT HERMIONE GRANGER…. And a rocket ship.” -Lauren as Draco, AVPM

“I can’t go to Pigfarts. It’s on Mars. You need a rocket ship. Do you have a rocket ship? I bet you do! You know, not all of us inherited enough money to buy out NASA when our parents died.” – Lauren as Draco, AVPM

“If you don’t go out there and die for something, I will kill you for nothing!” -Lauren Lopez as Taz, Starship

Darren Criss: Twisted Abomination

“Damn that G.L.E.E.! They always make twisted abominations of everything!” -Joe Walker as Commander Up, Starship

“The world always looks a little brighter….from on top of a lap.” -Joe Walker as Commander Up, Starship

“‘How does this sound? You’re going to jail!’
‘It sounded forced.'”
-Lauren as Draco and Tyler Brunsman as Lucius, A Very Potter Sequel

“We deserve bubbles on our skin!” -Joe as Up, Starship

“Beautiful? What are you, nuts?!? More like supermegafoxyawesomehot!” -Darren Criss as Harry, AVPM

“Hello, my name is Draco Malfoy. I am a racist, I despise gingers and mudbloods, I hate Gryffindor house, and my parents work for the man who killed your parents, do you want to be my friend?” -Draco, AVPS

“My parents were driving and they crashed. Into a crocodile. My parents died, but then the crocodile took out a knife and gave me this scar. At least, that’s what my liar aunt and uncle told me.” -Darren as Harry, AVPS

“Platform 9 3/4? Why, there ain’t no such thing! You know, you’re the 700th kid to ask me that…” -Brian Rosenthal as Station Guard at King’s Cross

*Damn Good Asterisk of the Day: These aren’t necessarily my favorite Starkid quotes, nor are they in any particular order. They’re simply a small sample of the genius that is Starkidpotter. I also can’t guarantee that these are 100% verbatim, as I don’t have the entire script of every show memorized (yet).

[EDITOR’S NOTE: We used the Pico de Gallo recipe from the popular cooking blog Rufus’ Food and Spirits Guide. It turned out beautifully as you can see by clicking here.]
