Who Should Play Mario Batali & Gordon Ramsay in the Marco Pierre White Movie? - http://eater.com/archive...
Who Should Play Mario Batali & Gordon Ramsay in the Marco Pierre White Movie?
"Last week, Eater reported that legendary British chef Marco Pierre White's memoir The Devil in the Kitchen has been optioned by director/producer Ridley Scott. The biggest question about the potential film, of course, is: Who should play White? Ripe fodder for film, White's book chronicles his rise to celebrity chefdom in the 80s and 90s. Helping him along the way was a young Gordon Ramsay (nowadays the two are famously estranged). For a time there was even a young Mario Batali in White's kitchen." - Eric from Bookmarklet

“Unfriending My Ex” Author Kim Stolz Is a Parent’s Worst Nightmare
"Stolz — the author of Unfriending My Ex, which came out this summer — could navigate to Facebook and search for an ex-girlfriend’s name without looking down at her hands (she would do it under the table during dinner). She’s a Foursquare stalker, constantly geolocating exes or potential mates." - Eric from Bookmarklet

Dallas Chef John Tesar on Saying 'Fuck You' to Critics
"She's out to anoint young chefs, who are her creations; the established Dallas chefs like Dean Fearing, Steven Pyles, myself, some others – we get demoted, and it's just extremely obvious why. It's a throwback to the days in New York when Gael Greene would get smitten with these young guys like Bobby Flay or Matthew Kenney. I'm the old man now, and I'm removed emotionally from that whole thing." - Eric from Bookmarklet

Ivy League Schools Are Overrated. Send Your Kids Elsewhere.
"I taught many wonderful young people during my years in the Ivy League—bright, thoughtful, creative kids whom it was a pleasure to talk with and learn from. But most of them seemed content to color within the lines that their education had marked out for them. Very few were passionate about ideas. Very few saw college as part of a larger project of intellectual discovery and development. Everyone dressed as if they were ready to be interviewed at a moment’s notice. Look beneath the façade of seamless well-adjustment, and what you often find are toxic levels of fear, anxiety, and depression, of emptiness and aimlessness and isolation." - Eric from Bookmarklet

Border Sheriffs Perplexed by Rick Perry's Plan to Send 1,000 Troops to Stare at Mexico
"“I don’t know what good they can do,” Cameron County Sheriff Omar Lucio told the Dallas Morning News. “You just can’t come out here and be a police officer.” Lucio and other sheriffs said they weren't consulted before Perry's announcement and, in Lucio's opinion, the police and Border Patrol agents were handling the small uptick in crime. "At this time, a lot of people do things for political reasons. I don’t know that it helps,” Lucio said." - Eric from Bookmarklet

Weird Al Makes Fun of Celebrity Name Droppers
"It's Day 7 of Weird Al Week (which has already brought us parodies of "Happy," "Blurred Lines," "Royals," and "Fancy"), and we have a song in the style of the more obscure Southern Culture on the Skids. Shot as a stop-motion pop-up book, Weird Al lays claim to all the ways "he" is marginally famous: He threw up in an elevator with Christian Slater; he shares the same birthday as Kim Kardashian (we looked it up: not true). The best line? "I know a guy who knows a guy who knows a guy who knows a guy who knows guy who knows Kevin Bacon."" - Eric from Bookmarklet

Why Liberal Attacks on Gun Nuts Will Lose a Firearm Culture War
"I agree that it’s shameful that the NRA tolerates, let alone promotes, a nut like Nugent. I also agree that Pratt represents a dangerous strain of religiously based insurrectionism that runs through some fringes of American society. What I question is whether the gun-control movement should intermingle calls for modest regulatory changes—limits on ammunition magazine capacity, for example—with engagement in a broader (and ultimately futile) culture war that the likes of Nugent and Pratt relish." - Eric from Bookmarklet

Taylor Swift doesn't understand supply and demand
"Taylor makes a nice little argument in favor of paying for music. "Music is art," she says, "and art is important and rare. Important, rare things are valuable. Valuable things should be paid for. It's my opinion that music should not be free, and my prediction is that individual artists and their labels will someday decide what an album's price point is." This is an impressively-constructed syllogism. It is also deeply, deeply wrong." - Eric from Bookmarklet

Massive wildfire burns 100 homes in Washington; town evacuated - http://www.cbsnews.com/news...
"A large, wind-whipped wildfire in rural north-central Washington destroyed an estimated 100 homes, forced the evacuation of a small town and cut power to most of the scenic Methow Valley. A spokesman for the Carlton Complex Fire, Jacob McCann, said Friday that the fire "ran quite a bit" on Thursday and officials were also able to get a better handle on its size. It blackened 260 square miles by Friday morning, up dramatically from the last estimate of 28 square miles. "This is a very dynamic situation," said another fire spokesman, Dan Omdal. "Fire activity is really high. Things are changing very quickly." Officials say no injuries have been reported. Firefighter Don Scahfer reported several community buildings were destroyed in the fire including the local post office, school and a church, CBS affiliate KREM reports. Authorities say the wildfire has already burned about 100 homes and prompted the evacuation of the small town of Pateros, home to about 650 people in Okanogan County. A hospital in nearby Brewster was also evacuated as a precaution." - Eric from Bookmarklet

Ina Garten, explained: How a nuclear budget analyst became the Barefoot Contessa
Seems like Russia funneling arms to separatists in Ukraine has backfired, so to speak. Nothing like shooting down an airliner for the world to sit up and think, maybe ignoring that Putin isn't such a good idea.

Even still, I'm not sure what we can do besides watchful waiting and economic maneuvers. But maybe the EU can finally at least form a unified front against Putin. - Victor Ganata
Agreed. This is the the court of the Europeans. They let Crimea go without much of a fight. It is Europe who need to take stiffer action to lock down Russian interests, especially economic. - Eric
sometimes it feels like "YOU DAMNED FILTHY AMERICANS ARE ALWAYS INTERFERING! Oh, wait...come beat up Russia for us, please? No? What do you mean "No"? DAMN YOU, FILTHY AMERICANS! YOU'RE USELESS." but only sometimes. - Big Joe Silence
No, after two wars and more than a million deaths, I'm pretty sure no one wants us to invade anywhere else these days. I think the general mindset for most conflicts now is "if we ignore it, maybe they'll just kill each other and burn the whole thing down for us." - Victor Ganata

Allison Robicelli Slams Food Media for Hoping Cupcakes Die
"“I have no issue with cupcakes,” she writes in First We Feast. “I’ve outlined countless times in the media on why they’re great, why people love them, and why people continue to buy them over all the other stuff we make. “What I have an issue with is bad journalism. And there’s a ton of it that goes around in the anti-cupcake circuit. Factual errors, lack of research…seriously, one more person mentions Sex and the City, they’re getting punched in the dick. ”" - Eric from Bookmarklet

Massive school of anchovies swimming off California coast baffles boffins
"The giant shoal of Northern Anchovies seen darkening the ocean waters off of La Jolla north of San Diego was 45 feet wide and stretched for more than 320 feet, they say. "It was remarkable. From a distance it looked like an oil slick and you think 'What happened?' and then you get up close and it's amazing," said Robert Monroe of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. "It's like watching the motion of a lava lamp." Anchovies normally live far out at sea, and why the shoal would come so near the coast is unknown, experts said." - Eric from Bookmarklet

She's now staring at the chance of life in prison, and you probably feel like that's a fair punishment. Shitty drivers rank right above Nazi doctor and below Satan on our Sympathy Scale.

"These are not chef tattoos. Instead, these are the tattoos of groupies who, enamored with celebrity chefs, tattooed chefs’ faces onto their own skin permanently.
