Listen: A Cat and 9Yrs

Swirl a bit of avocado into your soup while moving spastically to: A Cat is a digi-rock-techno-dream-afrodisco band (say that 16 times fast) from Tel Aviv, Israel. I have to admit, I wasn’t feeling their newest song “Disconnect” during the intro. But I kept listening trying to figure out where the bloody hell they were going. Turns out it was somewhere special. I had a tough […]


Cook: Avocado Vichyssoise

It has only been two days since Cinco De Mayo passed. That’s not much time in human years but in avocado years, it’s like an eternity. According to scientists, avocados age at a rate that is nearly four million times faster than a human (summed up in a famous paper I wrote in elementary school with the equation 4,000,000 x H = Av). As I perused the […]


Ryan Hobler’s Manifesto and Brussels Sprouts Bowl

Weight gain starts slowly. A pound here, a pound over there, one back behind and before you know it, your twenty-five in the hole. And one morning you wake up, take a look in the mirror, grab a bit of extra skin and ask yourself: do I allow this spiral to continue or do I do something about it? When Americana Noir songwriter Ryan Hobler found […]


Click: Cheap Girls, Bacon Grease, Guy Picciotto, Waffle Tacos and Other Odds and Ends That Caught My Attention This Week

Listen: Power Ballads from La La Lush, Weatherbox and ESCAPISTS

Seitan and Peaches go down easy when supported by these sounds: La La Lush get all lovey lou on their new single “OWL”. It reminds me of one of those power ballads that all 80′s rock bands were required to include on their album. I mean “OWL” could’ve been done by Firehouse if it was sung by a male, had no electronic devices involved and […]


Cook: Seitan-Peach Salad with Cocoa Dressing

When we started making podcasts at school last Thursday, I never would’ve thought that a week later there would still be some kids that weren’t finished. Yet there I was, today, still suffering through something that is seemingly taking an eternity. How hard is it to find a bit of information on something, write a script, voice that script for a minute, add a few pictures […]


Listen: Paschionate Singles from Last Lynx, Gold is for the Golden Team and The Pierces

Around these parts we are very Paschionate about our potatoes. It borders on hooliganism. It sounds sort of like this: Last Lynx have cracked open the red wine with the release of their new “Curtains”.  This is the second track to be lifted from the Swedish band’s forthcoming EP (called Rifts). Fredric Lindblom explains the single as being about the end. It is also about […]


Cook: The Paschion of the Potatoes

For some people, Easter is a time for celebrating new beginnings. The world is slowly starting to thaw from its frozen winter, babies hatch and run amok causing the older generations to instantaneously question if they had ever been so out of control, flowers open and show everyone their true inner beauty and all those vices that were shed for Lent…they can be renewed with vigor. But for others, bad […]


Food Flavored Video: “Peacekeeper” by Bear Hands

I received the video for “Peacekeeper” by Bear Hands a few weeks back and the email was loaded with NSFW warnings. I watched the video and, aside from a boob shot, there wasn’t much to it. I thought to myself, what do they mean NSFW? After rewatching a couple more times, I finally came to the realization that the video was NSFW because Bear Hands […]
