Bao Zi Blunder

Crazy story on Yahoo today, how China's favorite snack, a Bao Zi or steamed Buns have been filled with a mixture of pork and cardboard... I love the quotes from the Bao Zi maker himself... link

Pumpkin Head

The new Smashing Pumpkins record came out yesterday, after seven years Billy Corgan has given the world a taste of the band that made him famous/infamous. With that said, I bought the record and liked it. I have to give it a few more listens to put it into context over the life span of the band... but my immediate feeling was that there were some satisfying ROCK RIFFS, that any Pumpkins fan will like. Check out their new multi-media site, and look for them on Letterman Friday night. link

Forget Ratatouille...

This is the real deal.

Wrap Party

Saturday night I was invited to the ENTOURAGE wrap party. Free food and booze, good time, but nothing special... that is until we ran into a babe cradling, cigar smoking, Mr. Gary Busey. He even went out to the valet to put his gift bag away, because his girl didn't want to hold onto it. Little did they know that the bag had nothing but useless advertisements for a south beach hotel and a bottle of a "limited edition" water called BLING!
