filetes de boquerón


I haven’t been cooking much lately for a variety of reasons (multiple holes, suggestions that the NCEP is actually a fun and tasty thing to do, etc etc), but I recently set up to do a tapas service to get back in the swing of things (the full set is on Instagram if you’re curious). […]

Year of the Dog

Happy Lunar New Year! That would be the good one. Today kicks off the Year of the Dog (狗), or more specifically, the Year of the Earth Dog. The current Year of the Dog is supposed to be a generally good year, but requiring some hard work, perseverance, and fiscal responsibility. I think things will […]

Life imitates art

So last week I tapped out a joke about there not being any « R.C. wuz here » micrograffiti, because at the time, the very oblique reference to the Kids in the Hall made me laugh (much to my immediate detriment). Lo and behold, this week comes news that life imitates art, in that surgeon […]

Well, that was interesting… I appear to have survived Pearl Harbor Day with a quad no less. Haven’t sprung a leak and there does not appear to be any “R.C. wuz here” micro-graffiti as far as I can tell. Yeah! (not that Howard Dean “yeah!” either)

Miso Hungry

I can tell that I’m getting old because apart from constantly suppressing the urge to yell “get off my lawn, you kids!”, my taste in movies has started trending into documentaries.

Today is August 17. It’s the day after the 40th anniversary of the death of Elvis, and the day after the 50th anniversary of the Clown’s establishment of beachhead in Canada. It’s going to be pretty sunny but not too warm and without any effect of humidex to make things unpleasant. I’m going to be […]

He’s still dead

While we continue to be inundated with effectively non-stop coverage of the dumpster fire that is the current political milieu south of the 49th, today so happens to be the 40th anniversary of the Death of Elvis Presley. Yes, he’s still dead, though I’m pretty sure that some ancient astronaut theorist is going to claim […]

Atlanta as the Eye of Sauron


Altanta! The Big Peach! The ATL! Hot’Lanta! The Watermelon 500! The City that Kudzu Ate! While on the flight down I realized that it had been a decade since I was last in Atlanta. Back at that time, I was working for the Swiss and I was touring Emory University with my pal Mark, who […]

Water spinach

It appears that someone doesn’t like my writing about Cheetos. In the past I would have ID’d the IP address and written a reply which would have ended with “… and the horse you rode in on”, but I’m above that now, so I’ve only deleted the narrow-minded comment and will stick with saying “I […]

Peter Michael Winery is actually named after Peter Michael, a British engineer who apart from starting the winery, also founded Cosworth and won a knighthood from the Queen. My friend Butter Boy introduced me to the Peter Michael wines when we had dinner together before he decamped from the Big Croissant. The winery is  based […]
