diet food is what you eat while the steak is cooking
-paraphrased from julia child

i just got my copy of "eat what you want and die like a man", by steve h, and man, it's awesome. the food looks excellent even though (or perhaps because) it's guaranteed to kill you, and the writing is even better than on his blog. not for the easily offended, of course. or people with known heart conditions. i'm going to be writing out my progress here, when i get a chance to use it.

i want to set up a page on cooking for the stupid male. when i moved out, i had three recipies from my dad and a box of easy mac. there's alot of really dry how-to's out there, but i think one done with a sense of humor would be entertaining.

anywho, this one's for hog on ice:

the southside slopes, curtosey of fatheads in pittsburgh's south side, named number five in maxim's top ten meat hog sandwiches. i've never had the sandwich, but that place has more beer taps than you can shake a stick at.


howdy, thanks for stopping by. what you're looking at is the intermittent ramblings of an iraqi vet, college student, goth-poseur, comic book reading, cheesy horror loving, punk listening, right-leaning, tech-obsessed, poorly typing, proudly self-proclaimed geek. occasionally, probably due to these odd combinations, i like to think i have some interesting things to say; this is where they wind up.

"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us...We need the books that affect us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside of us.
