3x Platinum Big Boy Put Into Your Mouth by Macklemore & Lewis, The Amends and The Sweet Serenades

Back in the spring of 2009 I was tearing up the carpet at a house party with my dance moves when T.I.’s “Whatever You Like” came on the late night radio. It was the first time I heard the volatile rapper drop the line “let me put this big boy in yo life.” My immediate thought was dick…as in he’s talking about his dick. Years […]


Food Pairing 101: What Goes Well with Zucchini Drive’s Upcoming Album?

We are quickly approaching the release of the new Zucchini Drive album (September 25th via Marathon of Dope/Vlas Vegas), No Food But Lots of Weapons. It is an album that finds band members Marcus Graap and Tom de Geeter promoting some of their varied musical influences including progressive rock, garage rock, acoustic, electronic, lo-fi and hip hop. It isn’t strange to find an album that […]


Cabbage Dogs Stripped by Lux Lisbon and Among Giants

One of the coolest things about late night Tampa (don’t listen to the media who say it is all strip clubs and Hooters, there is a little more to it than that) was a little vegan hot dog cart called the Vegan Beagle. This cart would make its rounds at bars, clubs and concerts offering a number of vegan options including the ItaliDog (sundried tomatoes), […]


Food Flavored Video of the Day: MTN TUNE by Trails and Ways

The extremely catchy “MTN TUNE” by dream poppers TRAILS AND WAYS now has a video to go along with it. The video is set in the rustic mountains of California and features a full array of outdoor activities including climbing, biking and a mountain top concert. What catches my eye the most, being the food lover I am, is the small picnic that takes place. […]


Vegetable Masala Burgers Married to California Wives

There is a scene near the end of the 2004 stoner comedy Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle where Harold gets all wax philosophical about feelings and desires: Harold: I want that. Kumar: What? A Hot Dog Heaven super chili cheese dog? Harold: No. I want that feeling. The feeling that comes over a man when he gets exactly what he desires. I need […]


Tofu Banh Xeo with Asian Barbecue Sauce Stuffed by The Demo’s, Harts, The Rescues and Beat Radio

While not officially mentioned as a place for Conservatives to grab a bite to eat by Ticket Sarasota (c’mon guys, the Independent? Really? They’ll stick out like a welfare mom at a Mitt Romney fundraiser) Bamboozle Cafe is right in the neighborhood and hopefully gets some mad love from the deep pockets. My visit there introduced me to the Vegan Banh Xeo (read more about […]


Food Flavored Song of the Day: High School Girls by Skizzy Mars

The new Skizzy Mars track hits the same key that the last few have hit, boozing. This one features the clubbing and drinking habits of the female high school section of the population (thus it is called “High School Girls”). Skizzy hinted on facebook that tonight will be the first of what he calls “Happy Mondays.” Could it be that we won’t have to wait […]


Where they Eat: Baby Baby at 2 Fat 2 Fly

A few nights ago Grant (the drummer) and the rest of Baby Baby brought their version of scuzzed out drunken “fun rock” to Columbia, South Carolina for a show. To properly fuel for their stage antics, the band decided a 7 course meal was in order. Now Baby Baby is not rolling in swag by any stretch of the imagination, unless they are independently wealthy […]


Recipe Remix: Vegan Tuna Muffins Ejaculated by Little Daylight, Get Cubs and The Invincible Summer

Every once in a while someone suggests I should start eating fish. I keep a file right beside my desk for all the cases against a change to that type of diet. Today I am going to share one of those cases with you. Ok, case number 18…no here’s a good one. Case number 2675: A woman in South Korea took a bite of her […]
