The Moths - Games

Another post punk band from the United Kingdom. Kind of sounds like Good Shoes or the Buzzcocks.

Why do your feet hate my eyes?

You can’t fool me Crocs 2.0! Just because you got rid of the swiss cheese topside and call it Hoki doesn’t make it any different. Whereas Crocs had only a single goal in mind, Hoki is,

“a fashionable shoe, which you could wear to the beach or to your wedding.”
Oh snap, the beach OR my wedding? I always wondered what kind of footwear James Bond would wear with his wetsuit tuxedo. The answer, apparently, is Hoki.

Please. No more cookies! I can’t take anymore.

From thesouthern.com:

“Two students at Southern Illinois University in this St. Louis suburb kidnapped, paddled and burned a young man with freshly baked cookies after a drug deal went bad, prosecutors alleged.”
See what happens when potheads start committing crimes? What’s next? No naptime for you! Oh wait we already do that one.

I am the master of disguise

$10 reading glasses from Albertsons + gel combover + sharpie mustachio = my new alter ego: Jerry Chan. I seriously walked past people I’ve know for years with this disguise without them noticing me. But in their defense, the room was dark and there was booze at that function. Also, I’m a ninja.

The HAHA with David Cross & Demetri Martin

Ripping on celebs while they’re living their personal lives is too easy. They’re humans just like you or me; capable of getting in DUI’s or other legal proceedings. It’s when they put their best foot forward and apply all of their Hollywood gloss and polish and still fail that true comedy gold occurs. Take this article for example: Two very funny men, David Cross and Demetri Martin team up to rip the vocal talents of big screen actors to shreds. Hilarious.

Eagle vs Shark

Where’d this movie come from? Oh New Zealand? Sounds about right. If you haven’t already, go see Eagle vs Shark. Remember how Napoleon Dynamite was the odd-ball sleeper hit turned annoying pop culture icon? Then everyone and their mom started incessantly quoting that movie? Yeah, EvS is kind of like that, but with funnier accents. So, go see it before they pull it from theaters? What’s that? It’s already gone? Nevermind then, buy it when it comes out on DVD. Justin is waiting for you.

French Cuisine is Gruesome

Call me a dilettante or my palette crude, but I think French cuisine is just a huge grossout contest where no one has called the emperor naked. While vacationing in Paris this past spring, our traveling party thought it’d be neat to try some French cuisine. As an appetizer, I decided to have the anchovy platter. Now as a primer, I like fish and do enjoy anchovies on pizza. However these eight oiley filets were just barely edible and had a mouthfeel equivalent to prickly chewing gum. I had to choke back each one with a hearty swig of beer just to get most of it down. With just two left, I ran out of beer and decided not to attempt the remainder without a beverage in hand.

Let’s have another example shall we? An illicit item that is considered “a rite of passage for French gourmets” is the Ortolan. The Ortolan is a small songbird native to France and much of Europe. The recipe is quite cruel and reminds me of foie gras. The Ortolan is blinded (either by poking their eyes out or keeping them in complete darkness), force-fed until they’re four times their usual size, drowned in Armagnac (a type of brandy), and then baked whole. The small bird is supposed to be eaten in a single bite with a napkin placed over your head in order to trap any escaping aroma.

It should be noted that France has outlawed the sale of these birds, however its preparation still occurs. The Ortolan is still considered a delicacy and was served and former president’s François Mitterrand’s dying meal.
