nachos in the media
Siobhan Wallace is my homegirl. As half of Blondie and Brownie and one of my many cool co-workers at Robicelli’s, she is all over the NYC food scene. So when she was writing a piece for CBS New York on the best nachos in the city, I just had to give my two cents.
The Oatmeal has some ideas for the way commercial airplanes should operate and at least one of his ideas is absolutely genius.
I don’t watch Top Chef. I find the drama to be completely fake and a waste of valuable foodie TV time. (If you want to see the current gold standard of food competition shows, check out “Chopped” on Food Network, and yes I’m excited for “Chopped All Stars” starting this weekend.)
As dumb as I ever thought a column about nachos in the media would be, there is never a shortage of material. Look back at old Simpsons episodes, for example, and you’ll see our favorite snack pop up time and time again. Comedy writers just seem to have a thing for it.
I love dachshunds. I live with a dachshund. He has never gotten up and started singing about guacamole, which is why I am considering trading him in for Bounty’s new pitchman, featured in the following video.
When I booted up my computer this morning I got a flurry of emails and IMs telling me I needed to watch David Letterman and Ellen appearing to do the Top Ten. While I know Ellen is a household name, I’m not a huge fan of her program, so I was incredulous of it’s value.
You know what they say…”Pass the Old El Paso”. Wait, no one says that? I guess this commercial was a complete fail for the company then. The jingle has been stuck in my head ever since I heard it for the first time one day ago.
I’m not sure what they’re putting in the water over at the Comedy Central headquarters, but I bet it tastes something like Cholula, because their on-air personalities are displaying symptoms of a sever nacho dependency.
Here is another reason why Jon Stewart rocks: because he picks Nachos for the win! After ribbing President Obama’s NCAA brackets on last night’s Daily Show, the quirky host tried to show our commander in chief how a real American fills out a bracket.
Charlotte Gainsbourg’s new album, IRM, drops today, but this duet with Beck, “Heaven Can Wait”, has been around for about two months. Video embedded. Head to about 00:36 to see the scene featuring two buddies holding a nacho bomb.
