Anthony Bourdain Goes Off

Comment I Made 18 days ago

I watched just one episode (Morocco) and I just found the production was really overdone and a lot of his style was just too affected.

Should I stick with it, or if that kind of thing irks me should I just give up?

I think I'll watch the Montreal one either way ...

there appears to be a disheartening lack of complete jerks this time around

hahaha! I take it you've never heard of John Rocker then. His thoughts, in 1999, about the prospect of playing baseball for a New York team:

I'd retire first. It's the most hectic, nerve-racking city. Imagine having to take the 7 Train to the ballpark looking like you're riding through Beirut next to some kid with purple hair, next to some queer with AIDS, right next to some dude who just got out of jail for the fourth time, right next to some 20-year-old mom with four kids. It's depressing... The biggest thing I don't like about New York are the foreigners. You can walk an entire block in Times Square and not hear anybody speaking English. Asians and Koreans and Vietnamese and Indians and Russians and Spanish people and everything up there. How the hell did they get in this country?

Song From the Forest was really good. Maybe left me with more questions than answers - this dude's story needs a documentary series - but it wasn't unsatisfying.

tic-tac

As in, 'let's go off and do our own parts of the job, then we can tic-tac later'.

I heard it three times in my first week at a new job - but not since. I hope it was a shortlived craze in the business world.

I'll admit I was a little off topic, but I was just curious as to whether you would tell us what you think about homosexuality, rather than flippantly using 'gay' as a pejorative in nearly every sentence and then deflecting any engagement with that by crying 'GoT protectionism!'

Like, I'm actually just curious if you think being gay is inherently bad, and if so whether you would be able to admit that, or if you just use 'gay' as a pejorative and don't actually attach any real significance to the term.


cooking challenge: Brussel Sprouts !

I like to boil them for about 45mins to an hour (until they start to fall apart a little and develop the slight aroma of sulphur) and then serve them with a nice dollop of margarine and a side of Deb mashed potatoes.

Your GoT protectionism will take you that far?

Sorry, what was I protecting?
