Alton does Bacon.

Thursday, July 22nd, 2010

“When I think pork belly, I think Bacon.” -Alton Brown

I want to go to there…I want to make my own Bacon…and I will, oh, I will.

“Slicing a warm slab of bacon is a lot like giving a ferret a shave. No matter how careful you are, somebody‚Äôs going to get hurt.” -Alton Brown

This is your brain on Hogs…and Brown…and Bacon.

soccer fashion.

Wednesday, July 14th, 2010

I’m not fashionista, like my pal Loren over atmake it reign,but I’ve always sort of been someone whose fashion was inspired by soccer. It wasn’t that I played soccer longer than the typical American youth…I stopped when I was about ten or eleven…but I’ve just always thought that cut off woodland camo BDUs and blackAdidas Sambaswere always in fashion. Perhaps with a t-shirt from my favoritehardcore bandor, possibly, a jersey from your favorite nationalfootball teamwho didn’t make the World Cup.

Now that the World Cup is over, there are lots of soccer jerseys on sale at places likethe World Cup Soccer Shopsince they need to liquidate jerseys from the teams that didn’t win. I picked up aJapanjersey on sale and there are a couple of other countries I was looking at, too.

There are also World Cup editionSambasthat are on sale now.

¬°Viva Espa√Īa! ¬°Felicidades a la Furia Roja!

Esta es tu cerebro con Hogs…y f√ļtbol.

I’m not exactly sure what the point of this video is. I’m also not quite sure what’s up with Tegan (or Sara’s) hair. It’s like a quaff-mullet-hybrid thing. I know you’re Canadian, Tegan (or Sara) but that’s no excuse for bad, bad hair.

Here’s some stuff I’ve been listening to and checking out lately, I hope you enjoy it.
The Agent Ribbons

Gustav– they do an amazing cover of “Just Like Honey

Nerdtoriousspins the sweet jams.

If you’re not listening toFlorence and the Machineyou must be living under a rock.

We’re Tapes

And speaking of tapes,the memory tapes

HOLYFUCKINGSHIT, this is awesome.
Paperamawhich I discovered viaBlip.fm

I have a really amazing set ofheadphones,but is it wrong that I really, really wantthese? Nah, I didn’t think so.

FilmmakerBas Jan Ader

Imperial Teenare so god damn good. This videofeatures an intro from one of my favorite Mtv VeeJays, Jancie Dunn, and Rose McGowan is in the video. Good times.

The Antlers…enjoy.

My son once said to me:
“Daddy, I’m sick of this. The radio.”
“You’re sick of NPR?”
“Yeah, I’m sick of the radio…except when you’re on it.”
Classic.

Finally,Star Wars…retold by someone who hasn’t seen it.
