FoodBoozeTunes: A Reintroduction

July 30th, 2011

Initially, FoodBoozeTunes was all about consuming various combinations of, yes, food and booze and tunes, as well as other media.  Sometimes the pairings — well, threesomes, since we’re talking about three things at once — were awesome.  Sometimes they were bizarre.  We have some of these combinations documented in audio form on this website, as podcasts.


The other day, I thought about what I could do about this months-neglected blog.  I had recently taken up the delicious (and often necessary) art of cooking.  While consuming good food/drink/media is still a part of FoodBoozeTunes, I would like to make this blog more about creating as much as it is about consuming.  That being said, I plan to share some recipes I have learned from others, found on the Web, and/or have modified to my liking.

I don’t claim to be a chef or short-order cook.  I won’t make it in the high-stakes world of fast food.  I am no connoisseur of food.  But I like to cook, I like to eat, I like to pour, I like to drink, I like to create multimedia, and I like to consume media worth consuming.

Let me share some of my cooking process.  I am at that age where my hair falls more often then I’d like.  Since I like cooking for not only myself, but also for others, I don’t want them to eat a mouthful of my hair.  I don’t own a chef’s hat, and I don’t want to wear a hairnet, so I like to wear a black felt cowboy hat to keep the food free from falling head debris.

The above hat was my party hat (sometimes) during my college years, and it’s totally badass to this day! Read the rest of this entry »

What the Hiatus?

March 31st, 2011

It’s the end of March, and you might have noticed that we last published a full blog post at the beginning of February!  While this blog hasn’t been active for nearly two months, our Twitter handle @FoodBoozeTunes has been very active lately.  We’ve been tweeting the songs we’re listening to, with some short (often snarky, in an endearing sort of way) commentary, and perhaps with a YouTube link so you can listen too!  Sometimes, we tweet about the food and booze we’ve been consuming as well.

Anyhow, we’re taking this website break to retool the podcast.  Perhaps a more bite-sized eating-drinking-listening commentary would be a better choice.  Perhaps we might add some video (note to self:  get a video camera) to the mix.  We’ll probably do some full-length album and Shut-in Cinema feature film podcasts from time to time as well.

And finally:  “Do You Feel Like We Do”?
