So I tuned in to Iron Chef America: Battle Of The Masters, solely because Alton was the commentator. Now first off, let’s start off with the title. Battle Of The Masters? And it features Bobby Flay (who I think sucks supremes), and Wolfgang Puck ( who just annoys me). Where are these alleged masters? I think that Food Network has a Bobby obsession, because he won over Iron Chef Sakai. As if! I mean I was pretty peeved when they deemed him winner of Morimoto (my favorite Iron Chef) last year. That’s just crap. There is no way he is better than them. Then I tuned in to Mario Batali (whom I like) battle Iron Chef Morimoto. And frankly, as much as I like Mario, his dishes were not as diverse as Morimoto’s. Guess who won? Mario! I’m convinced this is a fixed event, where they feel bad for the poor American chef”s. I think it’s unfair to the “real” Iron Chefs (they’ve given the title Iron Chef to the American chefs as well, which makes no sense, especially since they only battled twice (Flay), or never before) to have the judges be American. Why is it unfair? Because most of them have never experienced the kind of cuisine the “real” Iron Chefs prepare, and so they vote for the Yanks. There should be at least one Japanese judge. If I could find someone at Food Tv to forward my complaint to, I would do so. And I would urge you to do so as well.
Poor Alton. He’s stuck with a reporter on the floor who is suppose to be Alton’s eyes & mouth on the floor, and he can hardly tell a vegetable from a hole in the ground. Half of the dialogue is Alton correcting him on what he’s seeing. He was useless. No offense to the guy, but how the heck did he get that gig?
I went to the bank today, and I find it humorous that my banking guy recognizes me now. Brenton is the only guy there who knows how to deposit Canadian cheques, so I can only go when he’s there. And now he recognizes me. It’s almost like I have roots in Denver.
So I emailed Meg to tell her about Scotland. Her first words? You suck! 🙂 Even Diane is green with envy. Hey, it’s about time I get to go somewhere. Besides which they both went to Japan. Now if we could only first class, I’d be happier. As it is, I’m sure the plane will be plenty big and roomy. I’d imagine anyways.
I’m gonna close with a quote from The Matrix.
Oracle: I’d ask you to sit down, but, you’re not going to anyway. And don’t worry about the vase.
Neo: What vase?
[Neo turns to look for a vase, and as he does, he knocks over a vase of flowers, which shatters on the floor]
Oracle: That vase.
Neo: I’m sorry…
Oracle: I said don’t worry about it. I’ll get one of my kids to fix it.
Neo: How did you know?
Oracle: Ohh, what’s really going to bake your noodle later on is, would you still have broken it if I hadn’t said anything?
