Chris Rock Interviews White People at a Monster Truck Rally About BET - http://gawker.com/chris-r...

Restaurant reviews, like this for NoMad Bar, should always include reviews of the clientele. - http://nypost.com/2014...
Restaurant reviews, like this for NoMad Bar, should always include reviews of the clientele.
"Sadly, the abundant pleasures might be lost on Slob Scourge clientele in need of the owners’ iron fist. On Saturday, a bachelor party guy suffering an “episode” hogged one of the few precious unisex loos. From within: “Oagghaaad!” “Ibuprofen,” begged a wobbly babe waiting her turn. “I have coke and Xanax,” a stranger offered. I saw neither, but I cringed over gross items left in the toilet by giggling women. Had I stumbled into a sleazy downtown club by accident?" - Eric - Back to the Grill from Bookmarklet

It's always fun working an extra long, mostly frustrating day when allergies have my head in a vice-like condition. Time to take something for sinus relief and go to bed so I can pick this up tomorrow. #lateisbetterthannever

These late night commercials on comedy central. I just saw an ad for weare18 "chat" line and I'm thinking, what are the chances you actually get an 18 year old for $2.95 a minute. Also, if that does happen, isn't it past her bedtime?
And Ashley Madison making a song about looking for someone other than my wife is just ewww. - Eric - Back to the Grill
Audeze LCD-XC Headphone
"Every now and then, a headphone comes along that truly advances the state of the art. Audeze LCD-XC is a game changer!" - Eric - Back to the Grill from Bookmarklet
For that price it better rock. - rönin
after a bit of digging around and reading, that thing specs out worse than the $100 pair of Sonys or Sennheisers frequently found mouldering in the corner of an iso booth in a run-down voice-over suite. this is definitely aimed at the gullible and uninformed. save your bread and go check out a pro audio web store like BSW or Sweetwater Sound. - Big Joe Silence
To play Devil's Advocate, it no new thing to hear people from studio background poo poo home audio gear, but where the studio needs level, controlled sound in a close environment, home enthusiast audio is a whole different ballgame. Often, you want that color to your sound. - Eric - Back to the Grill from iPhone
You want hyped frequency response? I understand the need to party, we are all consumers. There's cheaper solutions out there that don't scream "aging 1%er trust-fund kid" and will still match the drapes. - Big Joe Silence
Also, for future reference, no sane recording engineer would ever consider a set of headphones to be uncoloured or in any way flat or representative of the "true" sound, cos that's just not gonna happen outside of marketing and ad copy. In fact, in a studio, cans are pretty much always used for letting performing musicians listen to the monitor mix without leaking it into any live mics that may be around. - Big Joe Silence
But I'm not opinionated or anything. :) - Big Joe Silence

I have some ATs. Not those, but they be big. - Eric - Back to the Grill
cans are also good for checking panning and stereo imaging. and for doing "deep listening" while in a chemically-enhanced state of mind. :D - Big Joe Silence
KFC Serves Customer Deep Fried Hand Towel - http://eater.com/archive...
KFC Serves Customer Deep Fried Hand Towel
"A customer at a KFC in Newcastle, England was served a deep-fried blue hand towel instead of chicken. According to the Daily Mail, seven-year old Oliver Hallam bit into a piece of what he believed was chicken, but found it to be "hard and inedible." After a closer inspection, it became clear that it was not poultry but a piece of blue tissue that the chain uses for "hygiene purposes." Hallam's stepmother Krystal Henderson was concerned about what the hand towel could have contained: "It could have bleach or disinfectant on it… Had someone wiped their hands on it, had it been used to wipe the floor?" The incident was eventually investigated and KFC apologized to the pair. The letter notes that the restaurant assumes the towel "must have fallen unseen into the breading lug…and was not noticed by the cook." Along with the apology, KFC also offered Hallam and Henderson a refund plus a free meal. Unfortunately, Henderson says that "the incident has put her and Oliver off KFC for life."" - Eric - Back to the Grill from Bookmarklet

Guy Fieri's 'Cheesecake Challenge' Is the Most Terrifyingly Awesome Dessert Ever
"Instead of sitting flat — commonsense, quotidian, even jejune — the cheesecake is set on its edge like a wheel... I imagined Guy Fieri straddling that ragged crescent cake-moon like a motorcycle, riding into a cold and inscrutable universe, crying for an answer, a connection, somebody, anybody, with his painted flames and chocolate-sauced potato chips, his pepperoni armor and outsized burgers: Is anybody out there? I've got cheesecaaaaake! Is it a "challenge" because it's tough to eat? To make? To carry? To take seriously? That is for you to decide." - Eric - Back to the Grill from Bookmarklet
I just saw a hardcore conservative on Facebook and her friends call Ann Coulter a freak show and her friends chime in with phrases like pure crazy. Sure, it took that soccer article to do it, but I'll call it a win.

Seems July 4th started this week. I can't track down anybody.
I am a Vegas nut, so if you post a pic of your food, I want to know what restaurant. If you are staying somewhere, tell me how the room is. If you hit big on red, I must know! https://friendfeed.com/vegasro...
Okay! I'll be there next month and I'll be sure to keep track of what we do! - joey

GIADA – THE RESTAURANT (Where the Suits are Picking Up the Bill)
"“They can’t be here for Italian food,” we thought to ourselves. “Italian food is about as hip as a dickey. It must be her celebrity that’s packing them in.” Truth be told, it’s both. Giada’s fame may be getting them in the door, but it’s her recipes that are keeping everyone riveted to their plates. Recipes like a pasta e fagioli soup that takes this time-worn, worn-out, warhorse and gives it a whole new personality with small, tubular ditalini pasta, cannellini beans, finely diced carrots all suspended in a first class broth" - Eric - Back to the Grill from Bookmarklet
The Rising Star of Giada De Laurentiis - http://vegasseven.com/2014...
The Rising Star of Giada De Laurentiis
"She tastes nearly everything she passes. Most items meet with her approval—until she arrives at the pasta station. As a chef uses a piping bag to distribute lobster ravioli filling onto a sheet of pasta, De Laurentiis grabs a plastic tasting spoon and samples it. She isn’t happy, believing it’s too cheesy and too bland. “I know that’s how everybody else does it,” she tells the pasta chef. “I don’t give a fuck.” (This won’t be the last time the diminutive TV host drops the f-bomb during our time together.)" - Eric - Back to the Grill from Bookmarklet
"De Laurentiis’ struggles to create her perfect restaurant aren’t purely internal, however. Despite her name on the door, she understands that this is not her restaurant. Like many celebrity-helmed eateries, Giada is owned by a casino company—in this case Caesars Entertainment. Yes, the owners want the restaurant to reflect its namesake. But in the end, they pay the bills, and they make... more... - Eric - Back to the Grill
"“We went through a lot of [executive] chefs,” De Laurentiis says of the hiring process for the kitchen. “I was not happy with any of the candidates. Jeffrey told me, ‘Listen, your standards are too high. You have to understand who you are and where you’re at. And you’re not Thomas Keller. You’re not Alain Ducasse. You’re not Guy Savoy. You think you are, but you’re not. And so you need... more... - Eric - Back to the Grill

I Played Kim Kardashian’s Captivating iPhone Game and It Made Me Feel Insecure
"I went home, changed into a sleek white dress (with a tasteful midsection cutout, naturally), and received a call from Kim, who informed me she “had a little surprise for me at the shoot,” which I assumed meant virtual North would be hanging out with her there, in a Givenchy-designed carriage. I was then prompted to take a bus to the Beverly Hills shoot." - Eric - Back to the Grill from Bookmarklet

Is this guy irresponsibly trying to scare the country or does he know something? Thanks for trying to scare people toward the Republican party, but if you do know something get off of the news and get your ass to the White House and report it. What happened to the tradition and respect of the previous administration laying low for the sitting President? - Eric - Back to the Grill from Bookmarklet
That tradition ended with the beginning of W's first term. - Big Joe Silence

I don't manage my subscriptions on FF anymore.
Too much trouble. I forget who is real, who is fake, a Twitter zombie, but the feed moves slow so it doesn't matter that much. I have no idea if I have any subscription requests, but last I checked they were all spam anyway. - Eric - Back to the Grill
You're public, how do you have sub requests? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I was on private. I guess I forgot I was in public mode. - Eric - Back to the Grill
Today I had my first subscription request in many a long moon. Seemed harmless so I said yay. Then the universe lined up some mostly unrelated things for me. It does that sometimes. Some people stay in my broken brain, others don't. So then the universe lined up another. Hello, Eric. I also exist. - Slippy: Potato Croquette
It's you? It's you! - Eric - Back to the Grill
Yeah, that's how I respond when my mind is all "Wait, who the hell are you?" :-) - Slippy: Potato Croquette
I get sub notifications via email sometimes even though I'm public. They seem like down too. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
Yup, still get those too and sometimes they aren't spammers! - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Sorry Eric, I didn't mean to sound rude -- I was just curious how you'd get requests. I get the e-mail sub notifications now too (sometimes) -- but all mine are spammers. Seems like there was a year-long period where the notifications weren't being sent. (Probably overlapping with the period where the "forgot password" e-mail wasn't being sent.) - Stephen Mack
What? No worries Stephen. lol - Eric - Back to the Grill

I had a student ask me to consider grading an assignment. The deadline for all work in the class was Tuesday. He sent an assignment from several weeks ago in the email he didn't complete and asked me to consider applying points so it could push his final grade from an 89.27% to A territory. The homework had 4 out of 53 questions done. #seriously
A+ for chutzpah, but... not so much for his actual grade in the class. - Jennifer Dittrich
