When I was kid every Sunday after church my family would go out to eat fast food. Be it McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Hardees it didn’t matter. If it was fast, greasy, and obese, we partook. About twelve years ago I quit fast food altogether. Part of it was dietary, part of it an outcry against oppressive corporations. Things changed when J-Fur and I relocated to Tampa. […]

Savory Onion Pie encased with care by The Cast of Cheers

There was a time that I swore off alliums altogether. I remember it well. It was late 1998, right after a basketball game. I sat down to read Dostoevsky’s The Brothers Karamazov (one of my favorite books of all time) and slogged through twenty, thirty, forty pages all about an onion being peeled. I skimmed most of the passage, thinking that it was completely stupid. […]

Baker’s Dozen: Interview with The Delta Mirror

Consider this the calm before the storm or perhaps, more appropriately, the medical school before the residency in the emergency room. With SXSW, an album release and a residency at the Echo in Los Angeles all happening in March, things are about to get hectic for The Delta Mirror (whose track “He was worse than the needle he gave you ” was part of our […]

An Open Letter to Pepperidge Farm signed by Mitch Hedberg

Dear Pepperidge Farm, J-Fur has taken to eating your cakes a lot recently. She finished three whole cakes in a span of a week and a half (including one in less than 24 hours).

Southern Style Tofu Barbeque basted with Yuck, Jonsi and Lo-Fi-Fnk

J-Fur and I sauntered home from the library last Thursday and were surprised when the smell of grilled onions, peppers and barbeque hit our nostrils. Using our bloodhound scent we tried to discern where it was coming from. To our left kids played lacrosse with no grill anywhere around. On our right was a thai restaurant, an Indian one and an Italian Cafe. Of course […]
