A Serious Dilemma.

I have eaten some form of asian food for the past three days.

Japanese on Friday: I ate these rice balls with some weird form of fruit (I think it could've been a plum?) in the middle. Sorta weird tasting but I'm always up for a challenge. Later at work I felt like a giant bubble was forming in my stomach and would eventually explode.

Thai on Saturday: I ate tofu and string beans with spicy basil sauce. Delicious. Later that evening I felt like my stomach was tossing ninja stars around.

Thai on Sunday? ...ok, I know that eating more today was not the best decision, but I had leftovers! And surprisingly, no stomach ache!

But I have a dilemma: Since I am now aware that asian food will make me sick 2 out of 3 times, should I continue to eat it everyday?

Go Tell it on the Mountain

Ode to Tanya Streeter: My Diving Queen
Oh Tanya,
In your wetsuit so silver,
Hold me in your massive lungs,
For the depths of 525 feet.
Six minutes in heaven,
And your heart?
Yeah, it still beats.
You ride your scooter to the office.

To party with Clooney and Ang Lee.

And when you get cold.
You luminate pee...

And for that I love you.
Forever and always my baby you'll be.

and now...


Congratulations our fine fairy friend! Mrs. Buick Prentice-Walsh stole the show on tonight's final episode of WE's original series "Style Me with Rachel Hunter." After 6 weeks away from family and friends and a few months in tormenting silence, Buick can stand up and shout to the mountains! We love you B!

The winning look:

It is safe to open your eyes again.

After an early afternoon spent looking at poop related sites and throwing up in my mouth, I share this video in order to clear the horrendous images I have regrettably encountered.

Awesomeness, Thy Name Is Boggs

I've been slacking on the music reviews, I KNOW. But quite frankly I only listen to 4 or 5 bands anymore because I can't stand the rest. Until last night, that is. I went to see Blood On The Wall at the Mercury Lounge (who were amazing by the way, just as I had anticipated). I knew that The Boggs were opening for them, and although I had never really heard their stuff before, I HAD heard great things about them so I showed up early to check them out.

...LIKE WOAH. This band seriously blew me away. Their music is a straight-up punch to the gut followed by a rush of adrenaline. They're a noise/experimental explosion straight outta Brooklyn. Are there any Brooklyn bands that AREN'T amazing? That answer is obviously no. And once again Brooklyn has managed to bring together a group of musicians who create sounds like nothing ever heard before. The Boggs have got it all - the tall/lanky, hipster lead singer who can scream/sing beautifully and who shreds the guitar harder than Tom Morello (ok I'm exaggerating a bit here, but it's a pretty accurate comparison); the mandatory androgynous girl singer who shakes the tamborine and bangs the cowbell; the tight pants/suspenders wearin', neck tattoo sportin', all around cool dude bass player; the 2nd guitarist with the native poncho and bandana (every band's gotta have one of these guys); and finally the tiny drummer with the Ringo bowl cut who sits hunched over the drums and really beats the crap out of them (in a good way, of course).

They killed it last night. And while they aren't quite finished mixing their debut album (I know this because I contacted them first thing this morning), you can still hear some of their awesomeness on their myspace page. Also here's a crappy picture of them. Sorry but it's the only one I could find.

Orudis's Favorite Things: Part I

I love, love, LOVE bags that thank me and wish me a pleasant day. Especially when they're burrito filled and handed over by the "No hablo Ingles" delivery man. Exquisite entrepreneurial manners at their finest, if I do say so myself.
Just think, if everyone was forced to sack their wares in these bags the world would be cured of buyer's remorse, depression, eating disorders, and rosacea! Support our Troops!

Today's Flavor Is:

Holy fudgy cow patties creamed with coffee flavor! Are those chocolate cookie crumbs in your bed?!
You may be asking yourself: How does Orudis know about that night I had with What's-His-Name from Max Fish?
Well DUH silly! It's because I was there of course! Me and my newest friend Vermonty Python!
This shit's so good you'll want to throw it up, freeze it, and eat it again...or just have a million of its babies.
