You, sir, have a dope life, and excellent taste.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Hurting from last night out.||
Having a relaxed night with a bottle of still Pinot rosé, a banh mi, and some Parks & Recreation, which is my go-to Netflix comedy (along with Archer). Then probably the first season of Mind of a Chef with David Chang of the Momofuku empire.
Favorite vacations: Anguilla, St Maarten, Galapagos, and French Polynesia for diving.

Is delicious, but the only one I've ever been to is on front street just west of downtown. Not really known for their burgers, but chef's inn has a delicious one, as well. Also, take Bubba's off that list. Very mediocre.
If it matters at all, I make my living off of hamburgers.

Such quality in the 3rd east division!

Serious question: How do you pronounce hegemonic? I don't think I've ever heard it spoken.

And the Prodigy. That band was ahead of their time.

Please tell me it isnt for any special occasion, and that you just drink some of the best wine in the world on a weekend basis.
EDIT: Get the fuck off the internet and enjoy that shit.

He's a section 8 slumlord. I can see him walkng around with his cigar picking up late rent. Disclosure: I have no idea how section 8 housing works. But i did watch ex machina tonight and it was very twisted and very good. Oscar Isaac is awesome.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Ass||
It really pisses me off when you have posts like "lol pro sports" and then post on an NFL draft thread.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||Don't see it then||
Way to shit on a movie you haven't even seen the trailer for. If you do go see the movie (you will), kick yourself in the balls for me.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||I feel the same way...||
I feel the same way about Arnold as Mr Freeze. He nailed it.

|19 weeks 4 days ago||Its a drunken disaster||
Its a drunken disaster outside in Chicago. Normally I'd be out celebrating, but I hit it too hard last night and don't have it in me to do it again. So I'm at my apartment drinking coors light and sake, and watching the imitation game.

The trend in Michigan is the exact same as it has always been. A couple (1-3) very highly rated guys, 5-10 others with major conference offers, and then lots of MAC-level guys.
That first part was mostly conjecture. It would be cool if someone did a year by year analysis of recruits to find out if the state of Michigan has produced more or less over a longer period of time. Actually, and now that I think about it, someone has probably already done this and posted it here.
|23 weeks 2 days ago||I agree||
Football will slowly lose participants. I was fortunate enough to never have had any bad head injuries. But my older brother played 1-A fullback and had several concussions and now has terrible arthritis and has constant neck pain. I cant say for certain, but I'd guess if he could do it again, he would not have played football.

Magnus, I read your shit daily. And i truly appreciate it. Keep up the good work.
Edit: Your taste in books is pretty good. Not enough science fiction.
|23 weeks 3 days ago||Habits||
Habits make flying very annoying. check, double check all pockets of clothes and luggage.

I spent most of my night listening to lagwagon and face to face, and drinking manischewitz. JK, Off Color Brewing's Troublesome.
|23 weeks 3 days ago||Drink||
While you are out getting pizza, pick up a bottle of champagne or some bloody mary mix. combine with orange/peach juice or vodka, respectively. That'll make you feel better.
|23 weeks 3 days ago||maybe||
Maybe its just me, but vicodin gives me a hangover and makes my skin itch. While that may work for you, there is no way that combination would help me.
Also not a huge fan of pill popping. It's the lazy man's way to get high.
|23 weeks 3 days ago||the goose sounds delicious||
I havent had goose breast in a while, but that sounds delicious. My dad brought home a bunch of pheasants form a hunting trip recently and we did the them a couple different ways. roasted them whole over juniper, quick seared the breasts to medium rare, and confited the legs to make soup. All were very good.
I highly recommend sunchokes. They are one of my favorite tubers. You should be able to buy them at whole foods depending on where you live (they have them in chicago). Peel them and cook them like you would potatoes (boiled) if you were mashing them. When they are tender, throw them in the blender with a decent amount of butter and just enough cream to get them into a nice puree consistency and season with only salt. Serve with morels for one of my favorite ingredient pairings.
|23 weeks 4 days ago||Really bad||
I stick to ibuprofen.
|23 weeks 4 days ago||Adding||
Adding another physically addictive substance (vicodin) seems counterproductive to removing your hangover.
Also, I hate vicodin. Plugs me up somethin' awful.
|23 weeks 4 days ago||Good article...||
Crossing my fingers for the drug in the last paragraph. That would be amazing in every sense of the word.
|23 weeks 4 days ago||Dude||
That's one of the most excessive homemade breakfasts I've ever seen. Sounds delicous, but I dont think I have the patience to spend that long cooking breakfast (And I cook for a living).
For Dinner, I did cast iron seared chicken thighs that you baste in a ton of brown butter with garlic and thyme, sunchoke (jerusalem artichoke) puree, kale two ways - braised in chicken stock with red onions for sweetness, and in chip form using a dehydrator at about 130 degrees - and a sauce of the fond, reduced white wine, chicken stock, shallot, roasted button mushroom (you can get a ton of flavor our of the cheapest mushroom at the store, parsley, and a little lemon juice. Washed it down with a bottle of Laurent-Perrier Champagne. It was pretty damn good and the lady loved it.

is delicious. The one in Chicago? Did Takashi already build the new one in AA?
|23 weeks 5 days ago||If anyone is interested||
If anyone is interested in learning about food/restaurants (like I have been for years because of working in the industry), here are a bunch of food blogs and suggestions for youtube viewing:
WEBSITES AND BLOGS
eater.com and all their local sites. I frequent the Chicago version as I live there.
theinfatuation.com and their local sites. This is a restaurant review site. They usually cover mid-level restaurants and hidden gems.
luckypeach.com This is Peter Meehan's website. He wrote the Momofuku cookbook (for those of you in NYC). Lots of food science, recipes, history, and if you like ramen, they have been covering every aspect of it for the last few weeks.
zagat.com for restaurant ratings
YOUTUBE AND OTHER VIDEO SERIES
In Search of Perfection with Heston Blumenthal. This series is my favorite. Hes a 3 michelin starred chef and covers a different ingredient on every show. For instance, one week he will do beef, the next potatoes, eggs, etc. He incorporates a lot of science into his food and its always interesting
The PBS series Mind of a Chef (found on Netflix). Awesome show. Follows a different chef each season. David Chang (Momofuku empire) did the first season, Sean Brock (from Husk and McCrady's in Charleston) and April Bloomfield (The Spotted Pig) did the subsequent ones.
Richard Blais Burger Lab. Burgercentric show found on Youtube. The production is obnoxious, but the burgers are really cool.
