Miso Horny Mix

Miso Horny Mix: featuring Let’s Whisper, Stockholm, Boycotts, Les Savy Fav, Museum of Bellas Artes, Flight, Wise Blood, Seamonster and more…

At first 2 Live Crew and their 1989 hit, Miso Horny, seemed so ahead of the game. After all, who had heard of Miso in 1989? But twenty plus years later, we are a little wiser. Miso doesn’t speed up, add or envigorate the sex drive, it actually slows it (depending on what study you read). So maybe this playlist should be called “Miso not […]


Bangin’ Tempeh Quesadilla spiced up with 80’s and 90’s hits

A family friend of one of my friends, Sue Mustard, developed pancreatic cancer about a year ago. Very little money and research is spent on this deadly disease (so deadly that, according to the National Cancer Institute’s website 41,000 will contract the disease each year and 36,000 of them will die). To help raise money and awareness, sponsors a 4 mile beach run each […]


Cajun Cauliflower Hash browned with El Guincho, Whole Sky Monitor, Cabins and Murdocks

J-Fur sent me an interesting email this week. Apparently people have stereotypes about other countries and a graphic designer, Yanko Tsvetkov put out a series of maps looking at these stereotypes. I’d like to think that stereotypes are below me and they are something that I don’t participate in but when I think of certain countries, I think of food. Ireland is potatoes, Spain is […]


Food Flavored Song of the Day: I Read in Heat She’s Wearing Meat by Bubblegum Lemonade

Since I don’t eat meat, I can’t really condone wearing it either. But I get the joke, ha ha, shock the world by wearing raw cheesesteak. Cool, everyone talked about it and jumped on that bandwagon (including me, here, now). You got PETA’s attention (which is sad because they should be busy celebrating their 30 years in existence). Bigger than that though, is the attention […]


Polenta Rancheros Shragged with Nobunny

Number 36 on the list of 100+ foods you should eat before you die is the Mexican dish huevos rancheros. This literally means “eggs ranch-style” and is generally made with a combination of eggs, corn tortillas, beans, guacamole and tomato salsa. I like the idea of huevos rancheros even though I’m not an egg fan (I rarely eat eggs unless they are baked so deep […]


Where they eat: Michael Schafer and Victor’s 1959 Cafe

Sometime after midnight Minneapolis singer-songwriter Michael Schafer sits down in front of his “trusty” Macbook to begin recording his insomnia fueled acoustic rock. It is here that his songs of waiting for better things and coping with the helplessness of love loss go from ideas to “music in its roar.” These songs, in their current state, exist somewhere around low quality demo but Michael is […]


Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Goo Goo chilled by the Oholics, Weekend and Skipper

My friend’s refrigerator suggests “everything is better when it is covered by chocolate.” I dare to disagree. Nine things that would be worse covered by chocolate: 1. My running shoes 2. Records 3. Toothbrush 4. Snakes 5. Steering Wheels 6. Sunglasses 7. Beach Chairs 8. Broccoli 9. (tie) Gnomes and real bombs Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Goo Goo Bombs (printable version) -8 scoops of Peanut […]


Food Flavored Song of the Day: Little Bird by Pancake Breakfast

I once starred in a, for lack of a better term, indie Lego movie. It was a lot of time and effort for very little pay (try some really bad veggie burgers, a new found respect for gout sufferers and the occasional donut). One of my main scenes had me trying to get an alien to beam me to St. Alphonzo’s Pancake Breakfast House. Somehow […]


Pesto Tofu Basil Ravioli floating in a pot of new Fences, Japandroids and Winter Gloves

When I think ravioli, I think painstaking attention and Chef Boyardee. On one side you have homemade ravioli (and pasta in general) which are very time consuming to make and require a great attention to detail (which I am not always that great with) but have an outstanding taste. The other side of the spectrum is ravioli that comes in a can. Sure it feels […]
