Taco Town. Opening soon?


One of the best discoveries for me this year was the office time-killer, YouTube. I found this great clip on there. Definitely SNL's greatest spoof commercials. Why is this funny to me? Because it's an honest sketch of America's tendency to gluttonize. In America, everything has to be pushed to the limits. Bigger, faster, meatier, fatter, crunchier, etc. Will there be an end to everything we obsess over? I've watched this over 30 times and I'm still not tired of it. Here's the link.

Love it! YouTube rules. SNL has been doing some hilarious skits lately: this one, Turlington's Lower Back Tattoo Remover, Lazy Sunday... I may have to start watching the show again.

(although the internet makes it easy to just catch the occasional gems... like TiVo with taste sensor)

You Tube is awesome. I always forget to watch "SNL" when it actually airs. Thank the Internet geeks who upload the most hilarious skits as soon as the program is over.

Hey Dylan...random question. Back during your catering gig blogs, you mentioned that your favorite knife was a $10 ceramic knife...just wondering where you could get one. Also, my bro is looking for a good bread knife. Any suggestions?

Jeni, i use this ceramic-coated knife i got from this store in k-town called Kim's Home Center off Olympic Blvd. it's awesome and damn sharp. they have the vegetable and santoku style knives for the same price. the vegetable is more rectangular w/ a larger surface area than your conventional chef knife. the santoku is the popular knife you see on food network all the time - smaller and lighter than the chef knife.

Kim's Home Center also carries original Henckels knives. i bought a 4 piece set (four star series) containing a chef, utility, paring knife and sharpening steel... $120! good deal. i think Macy's will sell that for $165.

As far as bread knives, i don't even own one of those since i don't cut bread that often. is your brother dying to test out the panini grill? haha

hope that helps. email me if you have further questions.

Thanks Dylan! I love knives. When I was living in Osaka, I would frequent the kitchen/restaurant supply district just to look at knives. So fun! I have some Sakai City knives...but I'm always down for other ones to give those a rest.

And yes, my brother is dying to test out the panini grill.
