India



This episode was pretty fascinating to watch as Gordon travels around India looking to learn as much as possible from great Chefs. He then has the task of going back to Delhi and cooking for a group of Indian food critics who will rate whether he succeeded in doing their dishes justice or failing.

The most disgusting thing within the episode was when Gordon had to hunt down his own Ant nest for the chutney he was making. Eating raw (or even cooked) ant eggs made me want to...

And now, I give you the original and best after-school-fight of all time. This was a riot then and it still is today. Man, they just don't make awesome stuff like this anymore.

Three O'Clock High (Fight Scene)

I have loved this movie since the the day it came out. Classic 80's High School movie. The entire movie is leading up to the big fight after school at the end, and it does not disappoint. Awesome.

This series sees Gordon Ramsay heading around the world to learn how to make food the right way based on the culture that originated whatever dish he has his sights set on. It's a pretty fascinating look in what goes into the menu regarding ingredients. Some are gag worthy. Okay, most are gag worthy. But I'm sure that people outside of North America say the same thing about our food. McDonald's anyone? Pfftt!!

It's another cold, cloudy, blah day today. I fear that there is no more summer to be had here until next year....or until tomorrow.   ;D

Thanks for the heads up on Steve Martin's book. I have been meaning to put it into the queue but kept forgetting. Adding it now.  :) Might be awhile before I get to it. I have a huge list of books-to-read that is constantly getting longer each day.

That's what she said.

This is a compilation of scenes from the movie Kick-Ass. I wanted to post the original scenes as they appeared in the movie, but you know how that works with clips getting pulled down left and right. So, for the time being, this will have to suffice.

Can I ask if you did not live through the era or around the era, how have you come to enjoy their stuff? Through family members? Classic movie channels? Or are you just that much of a movie or comedy buff to seek it out?

Even for me I did not live through the era, but the years I grew up, their movies were on constantly on the weekends.

I don’t see any of their stuff today (or for that matter many, many years) except maybe the occasional Jerry Lewis flick.

My Mom grew up during the Golden Age of comedy with the likes of Martin and Lewis, Lucille Ball, etc....Through her she turned me onto these cats and many more. And because I'm such a fan of all styles of comedy, be it the Golden Age all the way to present day, I have made it a habit to seek out lesser known acts as well as acts that I've heard about over the years but have been lazy to hunt down. If I hear about it, I will do research on them.

There is just something to be said about comedy from that era that didn't have to rely on dick and fart jokes to get a laugh. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy that as well. But if you really break it down, it's much harder to do what Martin and Lewis did compared to todays comics of going for the easy laugh.
