On the Road: Sayulita

One half of MAWOI has been on the road, driving and camping his way, from Colorado to Sayulita and back for the past few weeks. He’s been keeping me abreast of all developments. Cop bribe? Check. Thunder stomach? Check. Weeks of hammock time on the beach? Check. The majority of the time recently has been [...]

Original TV Foodies: Yan Can Cook

It’s very likely Martin Yan could be the sole source of my lifelong obsession with Asian food (furthered more recently hanging with my friend Jeff). Back when I first started watching Yan Can Cook, he was one of only a handful of Master Chefs on the planet. Dazzling knife skills combined with an equally dazzling [...]

Original TV Foodies: Urban Peasant

Off the Hanger : Annie Hall

I finally got another copy of Annie Hall the other day (I think the VHS died a slow miserable death due to the obsessive viewing). Even though I’ve seen it more times than even I’d even admit, the style just seemed so spot on for certain trends floating to the surface lately. The chambray and [...]

Off the Hanger : Crayfish Boil

This is one of those activities that seems like everyone who lives around some fresh water could easily do. Fun for the kiddies too (just keep ‘em away from the sharp end). I’ve done it in the past just catching them one by one, but it makes it rough to get a meal, I think [...]
