Octopus


 
I’m not posting this video to preach about vegetarianism or veganism, so spare me the grief (I still enjoy a good steak from time to time, even if it’s not often) but this little boy philosophizing about his octopus dinner is damned adorable.

Redditor Phormicidae sums up this sweet video quite nicley:

His philosophy is based solely on an emotional desire. What’s so touching is such deep compassion forming so early.

And on that note: “If you don’t eat your octopus, you can’t have any pudding, how can you have any pudding if you don’t eat your octopus!”

A demented wino’s wet dream: Silence Of The Lambs Signature Wines


 
There’s no stopping those crazy kids at the Alamo Drafthouse in their continuing assault on good taste and all that is holy. Sommeliers across the planet are going to recoil in horror when they see what Tim League and his crew have unleashed on the world of vinification: Silence Of The Lambs Signature Wines. This is one of those ideas that have you muttering to yourself “why didn’t I think of that?”

Beyond the sublime goofiness of it all, these are serious wines. Hannibal Lecter would never sell a wine before its time.

“The Cannibal Chianti” is a DOCG wine from a vineyard situated between Florence and Sienna. It is a blend of 85% Sangiovese, balanced with smaller contributions of Canaiolo and Malvasia del Chianti. The nose is loaded with dark berry fruit with bass notes of allspice and baked quince. Its mouth feel is medium-bodied and well balanced, with savory plum and tobacco leaf notes leading to a slight sandalwood finish.

I’m looking forward to the Texas Chainsaw Massacre Signature Zinfandel. I like my wines big, bold and coagulating.

Sour candy


 
Sour Death Balls is a 1992 short film by Jessica Yu where mostly children and a few adults test their tolerance on film while trying to withstand a “sour death ball” candy.

As you’d expect, the expressions are priceless.

I love Vans. I’ve been wearing them ever since I was 14 years old. Not sure I’d wear these french fry-themed sneakers, tho. In fact, no I would not.

I found ‘em here for $77.00 and here for $49.00. I guess the more expensive pair was fried in extra virgin olive oil?

Update: Here’s an eBay listing.

Why asparagus makes your pee stink

asparagusic acid


 
I’ve always wondered about this. Now I know. Via Smithsonian Mag:

Scientists tell us that the asparagus-urine link all comes down to one chemical: asparagusic acid.

Asparagusic acid, as the name implies, is (to our knowledge) only found in asparagus. When our bodies digest the vegetable, they break down this chemical into a group of related sulfur-containing compounds with long, complicated names (including dimethyl sulfide, dimethyl disulfide, dimethyl sulfoxide and dimethyl sulfone). As with many other substances that include sulfur—such as garlic, skunk spray and odorized natural gas—these sulfur-containing molecules convey a powerful, typically unpleasant scent.

All of these molecules also share another key characteristic: They’re volatile, meaning that have a low enough boiling point that they can vaporize and enter a gaseous state at room temperature, which allows them to travel from urine into the air and up your nose. Asparagusic acid, on the other hand, isn’t volatile, so asparagus itself doesn’t convey the same rotten smell. But once your body converts asparagusic acid into these volatile, sulfur-bearing compounds, the distinctive aroma can be generated quite quickly—in some cases, it’s been detected in the urine of people who ate asparagus just 15-30 minutes earlier.

Below, a lovely time-lapse video of how asparagus grows:

Dangerous Minds pal Glen E. Friedman turned me on to the glorious Thug Kitchen website. If you’re curious as to what Thug Kitchen has to offer, there’s an extremely helpful FAQ section.

“where the fuck am I?”
THUG KITCHEN, BITCH. THAT’S WHERE THE INTERNET BUS DRIVER JUST DROPPED YOUR SORRY ASS OFF. YOU’RE IN MY HOUSE. I’M GOING TO DROP SOME KNOWLEDGE ON YOUR ASS.

“what is thug kitchen?”
THIS SITE IS HERE TO HELP YOUR NARROW DIETARY MINDED ASS EXPLORE SOME FUCKING OPTIONS SO THAT YOU CAN LOOK AND FEEL LIKE A FUCKING CHAMP.  PART OF WHAT WE ENJOY ABOUT TK IS HOW, HOPEFULLY, IT WILL GET READERS THINKING ABOUT WHAT KIND OF ADDITIONAL BEHAVIORS THEY ATTRIBUTE TO PEOPLE WHO TRY TO EAT HEALTHY. EVERYONE DESERVES TO FEEL A PART OF OUR COUNTRY’S PUSH TOWARD A HEALTHIER DIET, NOT JUST PEOPLE WITH DISPOSABLE INCOMES WHO SPEAK A CERTAIN WAY. WE AIM TO EDUCATE AS WELL AS ENTERTAIN, MOTHER FUCKER.

“I’LL KEEP YOU POSTED ON WHEN YOU CAN EXPECT MY BOOK IN YOUR FUCKING KITCHEN.”


 
Agua Fresca recipe

Alright, so you want something sweet, refreshing, and isn’t made by coca-cola? Son, agua fresca is the fucking JAM. Look, all the shit you need is:

6 cups of fruit (I used cantaloupe, but you can use strawberries, pineapple, watermelon, etc)
1 cup of ice
3 cups of water
3 tablespoons of lime juice
3 tablespoons of agave or cane sugar
pinch of salt

Toss all that shit in a blender and zap it. Fucking done. Some people strain the blended fruit for pulp, which makes the consistency a bit more watery. Not me, I like some pulp in that shit. Every sip reminds me what I’m drinking isn’t gasoline. 

Natural sugar is way better for you than that garbage they put in soda.  No bitch, I don’t “wanta Fanta” go get the fuck on. Shit.

Visit Thug Kitchen for more recipes, bitches.

Of LSD and BLTs: ‘I highly recommend this restaurant for anyone high on acid!’

The Sparrow
Jerry Garden


 
Jerry Garden—apparently a man who enjoys both fine dining and tripping—reviews The Sparrow restaurant located in Plateau Mont-Royal, Montréal.

Jerry Garden starts out with “Just finished eating at sparrow.” I imagine Jerry tripping feverishly and saying to himself, “Must. Get. Back. Home. And. Write. Review. For. The. Sparrow.”

Please enjoy Jerry’s review of The Sparrow via Urban Spoon:

Just finished eating at sparrow and had a great time! I must say that this is the best restaurant in Montreal to attend while high on acid.

My dining partner and I dropped two tabs of LSD right before entering the bar. It’s probably a good thing that the waitress took a half hour to come to our table as by that point we were tripping balls. I ordered a st Ambroise oatmeal stout and my friend ordered a varietal of scotch. It was while he was ordering that I noticed that the flowery print on her shirt seemed to meld into the extravagant wallpaper (which also featured sounds of tw rainforest and real bird calls).

For an entree, I ordered the BLT and she got the hamburger. My BLT was great and the overflowing boar bacon juice moisturizer my hands nicely. My dining partner could not approach her burger as they kept returning it too rare (she swears that the patty was pulsating and full of blood, perhaps still alive).

After we finished, we waited for what seeme like forever before we got the bill. To our amazing surprise, the bill had been there the whole time and the waitress abruptly asked us to settle up. I was simply having too great a time with the ceiling fans and over-the-top wall paper! Sparrow rules, as does LSD.

I got pretty confused while trying to sort out the bills in my wallet as the colors seemed to bleed together and almost speak to me… But our waitress was so helpful with the math!

I highly recommend this restaurant for anyone high on acid!

With thanks to Reuel!

The title kinda says it all, does it not?

There are some terrific reviews (natch) for Marie T Smith’s Microwave Cooking for One on Amazon. One reviewer claims it was a “cure for lonliness” [sic].

Learn more (or shed some tears) at the official site for Microwave Cooking for One.

Thank you kindly, Barbara Rininger!
