This new type of porn from Korea is crazy -
This new type of porn from Korea is crazy
Show all
"Move aside bland, old food porn. There's a new trend in Korea and it's spreading fast. "Mokbang" is a mash up of the Korean words for "eating" and "broadcast," and that's exactly what 12,000 people on Afreeca TV sign on to watch every night." - Anika from Bookmarklet
"One of the most popular mokbang broadcast jockeys is "The Diva." By day, she works at a consulting agency, and by night she gobbles down enormous portions of food--adorably of course. The Diva streams her meals daily after work, with her broadcasts going on for hours. Her plates of choice range from two medium pizzas, to 30 fried eggs and a box of crab legs, to five packets of instant... more... - Anika
I just barely tolerate other people in restaurants. I couldn't imagine sitting there and purposely watching someone else eat. From what I've seen from Korean TV, people who "eat deliciously" or "eat well" are looked at by some as if it's a skill. - Anika
I don't mind people eating, but I still don't get it. I think it is part of why I don't really like a lot of the newer cooking shows, where the whole 'watching people eat' seems to eclipse the actual cooking. Also - four packets of instant ramen? How is she not made of sodium? o_O - Jennifer Dittrich
I know, right? She said she's gained 20 lbs. since starting, but I'm sure there's a lot more health issues involved with all that food in one sitting, too. - Anika
Two dramas in a row now, where a sharehouse inhabitant makes a living doing mokbang. Let's hope this trend dies soon. - Anika

Bizarro Back Issues: Wait, What's Vampirella's Deal Again? (1997)
"Well, the fact is, Vampirella’s not actually that scary. I mean, despite her name, she’s not actually a vampire. She’s an alien from planet Drakulon, a planet where water has the same composition as blood. Or at least, I think that’s how it worked, until 1997, when it was revealed that Drakulon was the product of memory implants and she was actually the daughter of Lilith, mother of all vampires, who sent her to destroy a 2,000 year-old conspiracy organized like a vampire Catholic Church (complete with a Vampire Pope) with the help of a time-traveling nun. Hoo boy. This is going to get complicated." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet

"It Wasn't Written for Me": A Conversation About Asian Americans and the Media -
"Nicole: [...] But I feel as though many, many articles we read about Asian Americans and diversity never move much beyond the “Asians are being left out of the conversation!” point, and that always makes me uncomfortable. Sometimes we are “left out” because we don’t face the same racism. I think it’s rather disingenuous to claim to be “left out” of the black/white framing, and then conveniently ignore or not talk about the ways Asian Americans benefit from not being seen as black." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
"Sarah: I find it really hard to phrase my next point (which might indicate that it’s just not a good point). But mainstream media has an allergy to talking about (current, existing, everywhere-in-society-not-just-in-the-South-or-Neo-Nazi-circles) white supremacy. That idea that white supremacy and anti-blackness are at the foundation of American society is a very familiar notion to people who spend time reading about race. But for everyone else, “post-racial” rhetoric is the dominant mode of thinking." - Andrew C (✔)

"The video below shows a plainclothes NYPD officer cranking back his leg and driving the toe of his boot into another man's head. "So what?" you might be saying. "Cops beat the shit out of people all the time." In this case, however, the victim was another cop." - Andrew C (✔)
""He kicked a cop," a woman behind the camera can be heard laughing. "He kicked the cop." Realizing what he's done, the officer gives his buddy a little pat on the head, and then, for good measure, gets on top of the suspect and clocks him in the face." - Andrew C (✔)

I have some pork shoulder, cut in nice big stew chunks. I also have a bottle of hard cider. And red onion & carrots. What kind of greens would you throw in that pot? Anything else?
Salt, garlic - probably as whole peeled cloves, cumin? Also, I'd use at least one umami "cheat", whether that's fish sauce or anchovies or miso paste. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
I dunno much about stewing with greens, so my instinct would be to cook em separately. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
I would use spinach or mustard greens. I like stewing with mustard greens cut into strips, the best. I sauteed or roast them first. - Anika
Potatoes! :") - Jenny H. from Android
I would love potatoes in there, but I'll be serving it with rice or noodles, that's enough carbs. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I do have fish sauce. I have spinach, but there's a few dollars to pick up something different. Mustards sound good, I really like them with pork. Should pick up a piece of garlic too, don't have any fresh in the house. Plan to season with my house mix, which is black & red pepper, garlic powder, paprika, celery seed. Fish sauce is salty, prolly won't need to add much salt. Also a lil prepared mustard, I'm out of mustard powder. Maybe a pinch of ginger... - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Another option would be to mix in fresh greens just before you serve. They'll preserve their flavor and texture and make a nice contrast with the stew. Chopped mustard, kale or bok choy. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
Yes, thin greens would get thrown on top near the end of cooking, to wilt & soak up flavor but not stewed into strings :-) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Bok choy is kind of my go to green, I buy/cook it more than any other. It's possible I go with that again :-) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I'm making this stove top, thought about the slow cooker but nah, not this time. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

"Hiring veteran stuntmen Chad Stahelski and David Leitch to direct a Keanu Reeves–led gun-fu movie is like using a fire hose to wash your car. Home Depot insists the garden variety will suffice, but where’s the fun in standard pressure? Excessive force can be sublime. There are directors who would competently complete an action vehicle like John Wick, and then there are Stahelski and Leitch, who spend their days off set sparring with jujitsu." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet

In 2013, the state had 686 inmates per 10,000 people. To put that in perspective, China’s national incarceration rate is 121 inmates per 10,000 people, while Russia’s is 475, according to a recent report and comparison by the International Center for Prison Studies. So yes, Mississippi has more prisoners per capita than China and Russia combined.... -
I appreciate the point but there's something quite odd about combining per capita numbers. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
The combined number is 155. Even starker than the OP. - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist from iPhone

No One's Buying iPads Because iPads Are Forever -
No One's Buying iPads Because iPads Are Forever
"Today, Apple trotted out its quarterly earnings, as public companies will do. Massive revenue! iPhone sales up! Mac sales up! iPad sales… well. Okay, so not everything was a hit. But don't confuse Apple's declining tablet sales with the vanishing of the iPad. Tablets aren't dying; they just live forever. It's not that Apple's not selling any iPads at all; it still moved 12.3 million tablets over the summer. But that's down 13 percent from a year ago, an opposite trajectory to the growth that the iPhone and Mac lines experienced in the same time. It's caused a lot of wailing and gnashing of teeth among Apple observers™—what a job description!—but it doesn't mean that tablets in general or the iPad in specific are over. Here's the iPad's real growth problem: If you bought one in the last two and a half years, you have no reason buy another one. None whatsoever. Does your iPad have a Retina display? Good. You can replace it when you accidentally drop it in the toilet, and no sooner.... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet
I have to say I don't feel I've outgrown my iPad 2 yet. If I had a good income, I'd get a new iPad just to have something lighter with a better camera and display, but I don't feel like I've outgrown my current one. Whereas I feel the "headroom" on my old Mac laptops all the time due to software bloat for basic web browsing stuff. - Spidra Webster
I kinda feel the storage restriction because games, esp, are really big space hogs. Also, I'm envious of the more powerful CPUs and GPUs, but high production value games aren't important enough on iPad to drive me (or most people, I'd think) to upgrade. - Andrew C (✔)
Yeah, I've only got one game (and it's an educational one). I also don't use my iPad for massive photo storage. - Spidra Webster

iOS 8 keyboard suggestions were getting more confusing by the day. After a dictionary reset we are now back to regular silly suggestions.

Does iOS 8 allow direct editing of the custom dictionary? Android has for a long time and I was really surprised that iOS 6 and 7 didn't. - Andrew C (✔)
Well, previous versions did allow a complete reset too. Sorry, I should have been more precise: does it allow a surgical, entry-by-entry editing of the custom dictionary? - Andrew C (✔)

Is Kobe Bryant the reason for the Los Angeles Lakers' downfall? -
"The story of the Lakers' losing Howard has been told as one of the big man chafing under Mike D'Antoni's offense. One Lakers source, though, says Howard's issue wasn't really with the offensive scheme but that "he saw one particular player play outside that scheme with carte blanche, with no accountability. These people who say Dwight couldn't handle the pressure of Los Angeles ... that's nonsense. LA was everything Dwight wanted. To be celebrated. To be among stars. To be among women of this caliber. To live, basically, in one big reality TV show. This was a perfect setting for him."" - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
