i like eating. nicole richie doesn't, but i do!


i'm going out for my favorite meal in the whole wide world tonight: spicy honey BBQ wings (only 25 cents each!) and a pile of Pike Fries. (fries with fried onions, salsa, and melted cheese.) and of course a few frosty beers. it's probably the worst meal one could ever eat, health-wise. but do i care? hell to the no!


you gotta check out these celebrity recipes. the pictures with the recipes are priceless! especially batman and robin, tom cruise, and paul lynde. i love paul lynde.


i don't talk about him very much, but cat stevens is one of my favorite people that has ever walked this earth. and here are his nasty recipes.




do real men eat quiche? well, alfred hitchcock did!




i don't know why, but something tells me that tony danza is probably a good cook. hold me closer, tony danza!!


and here is what jack white has to say about the poetry of the chocolate malt:


one thing that concerns me however is the dying art of making a chocolate malt. i have to admit it is one of my favorite vices. but it seems that the days of the soda jerk being able to make a proper one in his sleep are long gone. so i will now list all of the known techniques to making a proper malt for anyone who is in a post ion to make it for others. the proper chocolate malt is as follows: VANILLA ice cream that's right VANILLA , you do not use chocolate ice cream for a chocolate malt. now if you can get past that very important step you are fifty percent there my friend. next you add chocolate syrup, fresh milk, and finally malt powder, lots of it. because if you don't add lots of it, it tastes like a shake, and that is not what i ordered! you have to have enough to give the malt it's "malt personality" if you will. and most importantly you do not mix it up until it's as watery as milk ( something they don't seem to understand in australia where i purchased three different malts at three different places only to be served something along the lines of chocolate milk, and it seemed they never heard of malt powder) you only mix the malt enough to get it through a straw, there should be a thick muddy feel to the malt, and a second helping should be served in a tin mixing cup along with the original malt in the glass. whip cream doesn't bother me, i can take it or leave it, but it is the dying art form of the malt maker/soda jerk that does bother me, i think we should all be aware of this and help to continue this dying, beautiful, comforting aspect of life, for our children if not for us ourselves.

First of all, fantastic blog. Love it.
I was having a look through your music movies and noticed you had The Strokes and The Kinks listed (as well as Rock 'N' Roll High School - terrific). Have you heard of The Detriot Cobras? Might be right up your alley. I love em.
