Click: Feral Cats Get Bachelor Pads, Growing Milk in Labs, Whole Foods Gets Political, Beautiful Poetry and Other Things That Garnered Some Attention Last Week

There were some really disturbing stories and hoaxes that hit the news circuit this week. Thank God for the world of veganism where no one tried to kill anyone. Oh, wait. I forgot about Whole Foods. Here is that, and other stories, that caught my eye this week. Happenings: Jessica Chastain Buys Her Mom a Vegan Food Truck Why not lab grown milk? Whole Foods […]


Food Flavored Song: Honey by Bruising

There was this creepy guy that lived down the road from us during my childhood. He had a barn that was always locked. I swore it was full of corpses, like Leatherface kind of action. It was so bad anytime he made barbecue, I abstained. One day when he was out of town I snuck into his garage through a back window. What I found […]


Listen: Mannequins, Pitt the Elder, Jameson and As Elephants Are

These are some songs I would love to meet over a plate of back alley pasta: Do they eat much pasta in France? I don’t know. I don’t really care. This pasta is a ballsy take on anchovies. Who am I kidding, it completely takes anchovies out of the equation in favor of seaweed and fancy soy sauce. Ballsy enough for you? Anyway, the pasta […]


Cook: Back Alley Pasta

I spent a large portion of my childhood in the back alleys. These alleys were dim, smoked cigarettes by the carton and blasted Billy Ray Cyrus from their speakers. They had big hair with lots of hairspray, rolled pants and coffee that came from vending machines. They also sold french ticklers and other weird sex items in the bathroom. I watched North Carolina lose in the […]

Food To Record To: In Studio with D.O.N.S

One of the central pieces to the Branson family Thanksgiving dinner this year was a vegan green bean casserole topped with almond encrusted shallots. Oh doggie! Its been four days since Thanksgiving came and went and I still can’t stop thinking about that dish. What I wouldn’t give to have another plateful in front of me right now. My index finger? Possibly. My left ear? Definitely. My […]


Where We Eat (and drink): Naga Tea

Thanksgiving is a time of gluttonous delight for most Americans. We overeat to the point of discomfort and then spend the days afterwards wallowing in the aftereffects of our poor decisions. This year, I preplanned better than in the past. I went on a diet. A tea diet. It worked like this. Eat no breakfast, drink a tea filled with boba for a lunch time meal, […]


Listen: Otonana Trio, NOME and Born Joy Dead

It doesn’t get any more obvious than this. Ramen goes best with: Japanese rock supergroup Otonana Trio is all about the Ramen. After spending the last year recording and touring, the band recently released their new full-length album titled Say A Little Prayer for the Ramen King (out now via Toyotama No Mori Recordings). The first single from the album is “The Ramen War III”. It […]


Cook: Tempeh Ramen

So there’s this vision that has been running through my mind for the last few hours. It is me, walking up to the edge of a gigantic river that is full of man eating piranha-sharks. A whole slew of bloggers are about a half mile behind me and they are running as fast as they can. On their hands. Now running fast on your hands isn’t […]


Click: Obligated to Eat Insects, Unilever Sues for False Advertising, Tofurky Turns 20, Status Enhancing Orgasms And Numerous Other Things That Made My Week

Thanksgiving is closing in. The amount of articles about “dealing” with vegans as Thanksgiving dinner guests has increased exponentially. Must mean the animal product free style is making some waves. Here are some things, aside from those damn vegan dinner guest articles, that caught my eye this week: Articles: How to Cope with a Vegan Guest at Thanksgiving Free Advertising: Unilever Sues Vegan Mayo Company […]
