Ancient Websites That Haunt My Dreams

This is tangentially relevant, because lobster was used in the chocolate battle of Iron Chef that Sherbs posted about "oh so long ago" (like two days, but ten posts ago - we're getting to be Instapundit or something). The lobster was vinegared and on some veggies in a white chocolate sauce, and other than the plating, it looked and sounded really yucky. Bobby Flay, whom my sister would kidnap and marry if he wasn't A) not Jewish and B) already married, did not make that dish, and that is why he won.

Anyway, these days, more than occasionally, the web music video "Lobster Sticks to Magnet" gets stuck in my head while I'm on the subway. I am way more ashamed of that than "All Your Base Are Belong to Us" (remember being in college in 2000 and showing this to EVERYONE in the dorm? If not, click the link and gaze upon this work, and despair) as the latter is actually kind of catchy, whereas a pseudo-metal song claiming that rabbits are ferrous is not.

The only way I can get either out of my head is to sing Daler Mehndi's "Tunak Tunak Tun" to myself. I gotta get more exposure to bhangra.

I believe Bobby Flay won because a) no lobster/chocolate and b) he had a dark chocolate parfait (everyone likes parfait!) with hazelenuts and yummy things.

As I mentioned to you in our conversation last night (memorialized here for our soon-to-be-massive reading audience), the fact that a man thinks that the judges will want to eat lobster covered in vinegar sitting in liquid sweetened white chocolate is a sign that he is not making winning dishes.

I want to take bangra classes. Although there is some question as to its acceptableness in Judaism. It might be partly avoda zara. Lame.

Also: pedant, you just like this video because you could theoretically dance like this/wear those clothes and not look so out of place.

I could, but I also think it's catchy.

You're probably the only one of the blog readers who spend 2000 in college.

Old fart!

I am not that old. You are just too young.
