My boyfriend Jen’s boyfriend *Sigh* Our boyfriend, the delicious Rick Yune turns 38 this week.
How on earth should we celebrate? Here’s what I’m thinking.
We were off the clock for Memorial Day yesterday, but simply couldn’t stop thinking about one rockin’ Amazian: David Tran, 64-year-old founder of Huy Fong and creator of its “rooster” sauce. Tran was profiled in last week’s NY Times in an article that described the sauce’s ubiquity (from four-star NYC kitchens to college apartment hovels to steamy bowls of Phở), as well as Tran’s incredulity regarding its success. Without him, we would not eat so well–and trust us, we know it.
But moving on, let us not ignore this hot-hot-hot Babe…
Occupation: Hot-Ass Chili Sauce, suitable for everything
Why It’s A Babe: Because Huy Fong’s is the O.G. of Sriracha sauces, and makes everything from rice to soup to buffalo wings to panini to popcorn better. We love the bodacious, feminine bottle shape, the easy-twist green tip–and when we look at the saucy, bold, red coloring, we can only think of one word: yummy.
Most importantly, we find that Huy Fong Srircha makes everyone feel and act spicier; and if constant inspirasian towards spicy action doesn’t qualify one as a Babe, we really don’t know what does.
Thanks, Zoe and Jodi!
Hails from: SoCal via Seoul, South Korea
Occupation: Professional Skateboarder
Why He’s A Babe: Sure, Song has received the necessary accolades, like Thrasher Magazine’s 2006 Skater of the Year honor, and a position alongside legendary Rodney Mullen in business and on pavement. He’s one of the greatest skaters in the world, kicks a flip like nobody we’ve ever seen, blah blah blah…
Frankly, we just think he’s a babe because he’s got a smokin’ build, a slacker’s slouch, sexy eye crinkles, and a perfectly angled face. In short, he’s yummy. Plus, anyone that can command a board with his level of intensity, elegance, and imagination, has got some special skills up his sleeve–and we can’t help but want to see more.
Of COURSE I think that the very suggestion of “Paris for President” (as opposed to really delightful ideas/jokes, like Murs para Presidente or McCain 4 Prez) is abominable. It’s not even funny. NOT EVEN FUNNY.

HOW ON EARTH did we miss the release of a new Ladytron album? It’s been three years since their last full-length, and we must say that our respective collections of silky, femme-fronted electro-pop records (on hand to spin at gadzillions of cool DISGRASIAN house parties) have truly suffered for it.
Well, we shall suffer no more! Velocifero is now available for purchase on Amazon, and boy is it delicious. Like scotch and cheese, Ladytron is clearly getting better with age, maintaining a cool and collected sensibility that doesn’t pander to the skinny-ass-jeans-wearing hipsters flooding most grungy electro-dancefloors.
It doesn’t hurt, of course, that producer/songwriter/keys man Reuben Wu is even more crush-worthy than ever.
Want a taste?
Mmm. Yummy. Like scotch and cheese.
Mmm, what’s more delicious than a hot cup of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee? That beautiful black tar has yanked me out of some of my most vicious New York hangovers, warmed my fingertips on the coldest of Chicago days, and–because my pal Jim’s parents are kind enough to FedEx him bags of grounds–gotten me through angry work days in Los Angeles. In a train, in a car, in my friend Pete’s house, outside my favorite corner bar. It is the universal coffee of happy goodness, rich, nutty, everyday yumminess.
And when I mean “hot cup of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee,” I don’t mean that wicked gross-looking, milky, iced variety that Rachael Ray was touting in recent DD commercial:
Yes, that’s right! I am offended by the stupid iced latte Ray is wearing in that picture. What a bastardizasian of good coffee! What an abominasian in the world of espresso! What a face-spittle on American coffee values!
Oh, and that purse/scarf combo? That’s a distracting bunch of accessories, I guess. Hardly as distracting as that offensive cup of joe.
Our favorite barking dog Michelle Malkin (and a bunch of her other fucktarded conserva-freak friends) was distracted by the scarf too. She yapped all week about how problematic she found it, on her
infinite pile of worthless, conservative drivel blog (Ed. note– I can’t bring myself to link to it, so if you want to see, you’ll have to find it yourself):
[I]t was with some dismay that I learned last week that Dunkin Donuts’ spokeswoman Rachael Ray, the ubiquitous TV hostess, posed for one of the company’s ads in what appeared to be a black-and-white keffiyeh.
The keffiyeh, for the clueless, is the traditional scarf of Arab men that has come to symbolize murderous Palestinian jihad. Popularized by Yasser Arafat and a regular adornment of Muslim terrorists appearing in beheading and hostage-taking videos, the apparel has been mainstreamed by both ignorant (and not-so-ignorant) fashion designers, celebrities, and left-wing icons.
In response, Dunkin’ Donuts yielded and yanked the ads, even though they clarified that the scarf was merely a paisley print. The Boston Globe printed an excerpt of the official statement:
“In a recent online ad, Rachael Ray is wearing a black-and-white silk scarf with a paisley design. It was selected by her stylist for the advertising shoot. Absolutely no symbolism was intended. However, given the possibility of misperception, we are no longer using the commercial.”
I’m not surprised, but I am just delighted!
Why, you ask? Because I, too, think that everyone should believe all of the bullshit fear-mongering hype?
No, because I love animals!
And here, all in one cuddly room, we’ve got Michelle Malkin and her bunch of barking dogs… and Dunkin’ Donuts… a bunch of PUSSIES.
Who wants a flea bath?
The alarming report continues: So now what? We shouldn’t eat expensive sushi? I can’t even process that idea. My mind is having a meltdown. I seriously do not know how I can possibly even deal with such a proposal. AN OCCASIONAL TREAT??? I SWEAR TO GOD MY STEADY DIET OF SUSHI HAS NEVER BEEN PROBLEMATIC IN ANY WAY! LOOK AT ME, I’M FINE. OH MY GOD, HOW I WISH I HAD NEVER EVER EVER EVER LAID EYES ON THIS ARTICLE!!! HOW CAN I UNDO IT? HOW? WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH… **Addendum: Empower yourself! Environmental Defense has done their homework so that people can make fish choices that are good for them AND the ocean! Sounds like a win-win. Check out their Seafood Selector here.
In general, tuna sushi from food stores was much lower in mercury. These findings reinforce results in other studies showing that more expensive tuna usually contains more mercury because it is more likely to come from a larger species, which accumulates mercury from the fish it eats. Mercury enters the environment as an industrial pollutant.
Some environmental groups have sounded the alarm. Environmental Defense, the advocacy group, says no one, no matter his or her age, should eat bluefin tuna. Dr. Gochfeld said: “I like to think of tuna sushi as an occasional treat. A steady diet is certainly problematic. There are a lot of other sushi choices.”
