    Michelle Obama's Mirror ^ | 5-24-2015 | MOTUS
    Remember the weighty advice Barry had for presumptive Republican presidential candidates a few weeks back? “…the presidency “is not entertainment — this is not a reality show.” Boy, we wish that were so. However, during his recent FEAT (Far East Apology Tour) Barry Obama appeared with Anthony Bourdain for a taping of his show - Parts Unknown, a CNN foodie travelogue. The foodie and the druggie shared a lunch of bún chả and beer; Tony praised Barry’s chopstick skills and picked up the tab. In case you’re not familiar with Tony, he’s the former chain smoking, coke sniffing, heroin addicted...

Opinions on both sides of the debate are fierce and passionate, and nearly everyone has feelings of some kind regarding the geo-political situation.

Bourdain, an avowed New York lefty, admitted that he likes guns and expressed his respect for American...

  • Next to Anthony Bourdain, Paula Deens a Saint

    07/12/2013 12:31:30 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 26 replies ^ | July 12, 2013 | Humberto Fontova
    Paula Deen occasionally used the N-word, weve recently learned. For this she was tarred and feathered, drawn and quartered, and fed to the gators. Anthony Bourdain, on the other hand, headlined a propaganda junket to help secure the financial lifeline for the Stalinist regime that jailed and tortured the longest suffering black political prisoners in modern history. But Bourdain sniffs that: She (Paula Deen) revels in unholy connections with evil corporations. Going further, he denounces Paula Deens professional endeavors as in excruciatingly bad taste. Further still, Bourdain finds Paula Deen, unconscionable, cynical, and greedy. Youve probably noticed whose side the...

    World-renowned chef, author and Emmy winning television personality Anthony Bourdain visits Libya in the next episode of "Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown," airing Sunday, May 19, at 9 p.m. ET. Follow the show on Twitter and Facebook (CNN) -- Following Libya's revolution, oil production has been restored and the country has slipped from the front pages. Once more, Libya has become North African rather than southern Mediterranean, and news dispatches surface only when Western government's worst fears appear close to being realized. As most Libyans admit that after four-plus decades of Moammar Gadhafi, it will take time to build a mature...
  • Christmas Cartoon Featuring Santas Demonic Helper Yanked From Travel Channel

    The Christmas season is filled with television specials that remind us of our childhood. From Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer to The Grinch, holiday favorites offer a lesson for viewers, while enabling them to celebrate and experience the Christmas spirit. But when a new, animated holiday cartoon called A Krampus Carol was produced for the Travel Channel, it was apparently a bit too creepy and disturbing to be aired. So, executives decided to pull the plug. Anthony Bourdain, a chef and television personality who hosts the Travel Channels No Reservations show, apparently wrote the short cartoon. He took the Austrian legend...

    Heres some great footage from that panel discussion between Alice Waters, Anthony Bourdain, and Duff Goldman. Waters sets Bourdain up for the kill when she says, You can have the hot dog on the train, but you better ask them where you got the hot dog. I want to know that its a grass-fed beef hot dog. Thats whats important. Where did the bun come from? Where did the flour come from? And then Bourdain moves in: Is it a good hot dog? Thats all I want to know I dont think the personal health and purity of my...

    ...Nevertheless, China has been portrayed as a nation blind to hygiene and blissfully unconcerned about recent reports of food contamination. That's troubling, because it reinforces the notion that befouled food is the consequence of a foul culture. Chef and gustatory adventurer Anthony Bourdain may have said it best in a 2006 Salon interview in which he noted that there's "something kind of racist" about culinary xenophobia: "Fear of dirt is often indistinguishable from the fear of unnamed dirty people." And this, in turn, spells danger. What one might call "food libel" has long been an aspect of a larger fear...
