Things wrong with Gawker's rankings of sauces (linked below)

http://rankings.gawker.com/sauces-ranked-1472669733/1472748656/@Tom-Scocca

  • Gravy is ultra-overrated
  • Hot sauce is clearly superior to soy
  • Where is hollandaise on this list?
  • I don't know what "fish sauce" is, but I think it's safe to say Sriracha is better
  • Ketchup is also overrated
  • No barbecue sauce?
  • No buffalo sauce?
  • What about mango?
  • Cranberry sauce is probably underrated
  • Seriously, the omission of hollandaise is stunning

Considerations relating to my life goal to own (as Jay-Z put it) "so many watches I need eight arms"

  • I do not, in fact, have eight arms
  • Wearing more than one watch at once is corny
  • That many watches would require coordination of watch with outfit
  • Upkeep concerns (setting them all to the same time, keeping them wound, etc.)
  • Cost would inevitably be high
  • Storage is a minor headache
  • The wisdom of pursuing a goal simply because a middle-aged rapper mentioned it once is questionable at best

Elton John songs explained

  • Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting - In this song, Elton imagines that if he were to ever get in a fight, Saturday night would be the ideal time for it.
  • Candle in the Wind - The title is a metaphor for Marilyn Monroe's untimely death.
  • Rocket Man (I Think It's Going to Be a Long, Long Time) - It's sometimes easier just to steal David Bowie's ideas.
  • The Bitch is Back - Elton is the bitch.
  • Can You Feel the Love Tonight - Michael Eisner writes some very large checks.
  • Island Girl - This song is about a prostitute.

Reflections on eating sushi for the first time

  • Easily the most rice I've eaten in years
  • Wasabi is not as intimidatingly spicy as I recall
  • Pickled ginger is not very good
  • The fish itself is not ultra flavorful (may be a result of getting sushi far from any coast)
  • More sauces utilized than expected
  • Embarassing that I didn't try sushi until I was 24
  • Would eat it again though (hopefully closer to, you know, an ocean)

Five haikus about Kanye West

Congratulations
On your abrasive album
Lou Reed is a fan

Feminists hate it
The racially conscious too
And the religious

Daughter named North West
It's funny to give joke names
She might not laugh though

Huge drop in your sales
Now we know what happens with
No advance singles

One thing bothers me
Where can I learn Swaghili
Google is no help

Things that make me apprehensive about the new season of Arrested Development

  • Loads of guest stars, potentially very distracting
  • Long layoff between seasons, cast / writing may have slipped
  • Portia de Rossi has not aged well in the interim
  • Lower budget might make for a shoddier quality show
  • The weaker third season might have been an indicator that the creative tank was running low
  • No Steve Holt!

Dark horse candidates to be the supposed "gay NFL player considering coming out"

  • Chris Culliver (classic case of "the lady doth protest too much, methinks")
  • Marshawn Lynch (we all know he loves to taste the rainbow)
  • Tim Tebow (so many Christians would learn so much about NFLshop.com's return policy)
  • Wes Welker (it sure seems like he got jealous about Brady making eyes at Gronk)
  • Brett Favre (the big story here is that he's unretired again)
  • Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (uh, well, look at his name)

Things that worry me (in decreasing order of importance)

  • A North Korean nuclear attack (especially on Atlanta, while I'm there)
  • Drone strikes on American soil
  • Economic instability (especially affecting the jobs market)
  • Polarized political atmosphere leading to extremist parties
  • Breaking Bad and Mad Men being disappointing this year (I realize this is a substantial drop off)
  • Drake's new album having a lot of filler 
  • No new Arctic Monkeys album this year
  • Russell Brand maintaining his career
Edit: I don't normally update prior lists from a new one, but I would like to note, in regards to my earlier "Personal Achievements" entry, that I also once solved the New York Times crossword (a Monday, admittedly) in pen, with no help, and only one error (had Anjelica Huston's name spelled with a "g").

Sunday, March 3, 2013

Albums that are almost perfect, but miss the mark ever-so-slightly


  • Arctic Monkeys - Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not ("Perhaps Vampires Is a Bit Strong But..." is about twice as long as it should be)
  • Crime in Stereo - Is Dead (the second half of the album gets a little diffuse at times)
  • Elvis Costello and the Attractions - Armed Forces (just a hair too poppy)
  • The Replacements - Pleased to Meet Me (the sequencing is questionable at times)
  • Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers - Damn the Torpedoes (half the songs are outstanding, half are merely very good)
  • Simon and Garfunkel - Bridge Over Troubled Water ("Why Don't You Write Me" is filler)
  • The Clash - London Calling (the back half - "Four Horsemen" is a noticeable offender - is weaker than the front half)
  • The Rolling Stones - Tattoo You ("Slave" kills the pace of side one)

Tuesday, February 26, 2013
