Yeah, we had a busier weekend than anticipated and we still ended up finishing season two of Orange is the New Black by Monday night. I loved it so much, it was fucking fantastic, and that is taking into account that basically everything on television looks like a turd next to Fargo.
Shit got out of hand last night.
I finally watched last night's episode and, holy shit. You are correct, sir. The whole episode was fucking incredible, but the scene in the dinner might have been best the piece of television I've seen in years. That was some Kubrick level shit, in my opinion.
Get a job in the hospitality industry -- the hotel I work at feeds me everyday for free. I save a lot on groceries, I think, but sometimes that means I have absolutely no food in the house for weeks and end up eating out way too much when I'm not at work.
I know this all too well, having spent 10+ years in the restaurant industry. I was thinking more of free food that I neither cooked nor served to others. An office job to which meals are delivered twice a day? Free food without having to deal with the general public? That sounds pretty close to paradise to me.
Who cares if that is in Portland (I do not think so) because the best burger I have eaten here was from Slow Bar. The Slow Burger.
For a mere 10 dollars you get 1/2lb. Painted Hills natural beef, Gruyere, onion rings, butter lettuce, pickle relish, garlic aioli. Get it with the salad because the delicious vinaigrette cuts through the richness of the burger. The bar is pretty douchey but damn if that is not the most delicious burg.

Jack White to be at The Paramount August 25 and 26 and Vancouver, BC August 28. Just when I had pretty much made up my mind to go to NIN/Death Grips on August 30, he goes and makes things complicated. Tickets go on sale Friday morning; I guess it will depend on how much they are.

To Be Kind would have been higher on my top 10 list if it wasn't such a massive undertaking just to listen to it. I love it, but I've only been able to listen to it all the way through a few times because I have other shit to do with my life. I feel like it could have been about a half hour shorter and it would have been perfect.
