2016.10.24 23:15 Gregheff One Year Since the Closing of Amy's Baking Company

A year ago, Amy's Baking Company's closed due to the conflicts between the owners and the new landlords of the mall, who built new plumbing, causing the kitchen to have problems. A month later, the new owners opened a new restaurant called B&R Wine-Food.
After the restaurant closed, Amy's Baking Company became a wholesale franchise, selling cakes to other companies, and an online school. Since the restaurant has closed, the nightmare has also ended.
Currently, the online storm has died down. We don't see much attacks between Amy's Baking Company and Yelp and Reddit. When I search B&R Wine-Food on Yelp, one Yelper said that "The ghost of Amy's Baking Company has finally been exorcised..." Another Yelper said "They don't even have Amy's deserts anymore. But she didn't make them any way." A third Yelper said "You need to give them a try. They are fighting the bad wrap from Amy's Bakery..."
Update: Since posting this information, turns out Amy and Samy are living in Westwood, CA in a "posh, five-unit condominium building that features primarily 2-bedroom, 2.75-bath homes for rent, ranging from about 2,100 to 2,300 square feet", while owning a home in Arizona, according to azcentral. She is still baking, updating her Instagram account from time to time and still selling T-shirts from the episode.

2015.12.11 22:43 JJTheJetPlane5657 MEGA Local Holiday Shopping Guide

Hey you guys! I saw a few threads across the Florida subs (here, Tampa, Florida, Sarasota, etc) asking for local shopping recommendations. As the founder of BurgBox, I spend hours every week researching, interviewing, and sampling Tampa Bay-made products so I thought I'd compile some of my favorite places together and make a little guide!
I'd love some additions, recommend 'em if you think of something!
For the Trend Setter
  • Strands of Sunshine - Strands of Sunshine owner & artist, Amy Marshall, prides herself on making “Handcrafted Goods for Happy People”. You can get a behind-the-scenes sneak peak of her work by checking out her workbench right inside the shop! Strands of Sunshine also features other locally made goods + classes + private parties.
  • BurgBox - Do you love your city? Want to get a little bit of everything Tampa Bay has to offer? Check out BurgBox.com for a monthly curated box of local goodies! Get everything from locally made clothes, snacks, crafts, music, & more! BurgBox believes in giving back to the community, so 5% of each sale is donated to a local charity (December sales benefit Pet Pal Animal Shelter).
  • Bodhi Basics - After struggling with her own acne and skin problems for you, Bodhi Basics owner Kim Vorperian decided to take matters into her own hands. Kim setup what she calls a “makeshift laboratory” in her kitchen and experimented with organic, all natural skin remedies! 5 years later, she now owns the shop Bodhi Basics where she sells skincare products using only “the highest quality, organic, botanical ingredients - no junk, no artificial crap, no synthetic fragrance.”
  • Unforgettaballs - Want to get the sports fan in your life a truly unique gift? Give them an Unforgettaball! Artist Emily Wolfson reproduces original paintings onto authentic baseballs. you can find hundreds of designs from ballparks (both old and new) to city landscapes (St. Pete Skyline baseball anyone?).

  • Pinellas Chocolate Company - Each artisan chocolate bar is single-origin, meaning every bean in your chocolate came from the same farm. How neat is that? Pinellas Chocolate then selects a roast that’s appropriate to every batch’s flavor profile, resulting in a smooth and unique chocolate flavor.
  • Mazzaro’s Italian Market - You can’t go wrong with a gift card to Tampa Bay’s favorite culinary destination. From fresh roasted coffee, to gourmet baked goods and handmade pastas, any foodie will be in heaven wandering the aisles of Mazzaro’s! You can also check out their space next door, Casa di Mazzaro for housewares and more locally made goods.

Fun fact: You can find their newest album "Dirty Little Secret" on Google Play Music (not sure about other streaming services)!
  • Danfield - A smooth combination of jazz, funk, and reggae that occasionally turns into a burst of jazz-fueled spoken word. Perfect for someone who likes music that’s “just a little bit out there”.
  • Forrest Hoffar - Tampa Native Forrest Hoffar offers a solid dirty, americana-flavored sound. A great pick for fans of Tom Petty, Garth Brooks, or Dave Matthews.
  • DROPINPICKUP - Just listening to Dropin Pickup, you might assume that backup vocalist Gabrielle Arnold was winging. You’d be wrong! Frontman Mike Farrell handles all the vocals, even venturing into the falsetto ranges.
For the Restaurant Go-er
  • Stillwaters Tavern - Executive Chef Jerry Jew and Director of Operations Lee Karlins strive to create a modern take on the American tavern with Stillwaters.

  • Swah-Rey - “Heaven is real, and it’s called (swah-rey)” pretty accurately sums up the experience of eating at swah-rey.

2013.07.11 22:55 tabledresser [Table] IAmA Scott Aukerman, host of "Comedy Bang! Bang!" and 43rd President of the United States of America. AMA

Questions Answers
Hey Scott, I've always wanted to ask you this: how much money do you make? People don't want to ever answer this question - but I'll give you the straight answer: $67,035 a year (after taxes)
Hi Scott, huge fan of the show. I was wondering who was your favorite person that you worked with on the show in season 1? What am I chopped liver? Adam Scott was nice enough to do the pilot episode - a show that didn't exist up until then, and he did it sight unseen and killed it.
Zach is always super generous with his time and comes in with no PR team or handlers - he just hangs out until he's done, then drives away in his shitty Subaru.
Amy was a joy, and so up for anything - she told me recently that when people ask her what doing CBB is like, she says "it's the kind of show where, if you ask if you can wear a wig, they say 'okay!'"
Hamm is an old friend, and had better things to do, I'm sure - but he did a million takes of that director bit, then jumped on a bike for us.
Mike Cera is one of the few people who came to the show with a bit he wanted to do - the Angry Birds thing. He's so dry and hilarious.
Seth Rogen I had never met before - and he was telling me about how incredibly busy he was and how he was turning down a bunch of work. I asked him "they why are you doing this show?" He said - "I always have time to do cool shit like this!"
Paul Rudd is also an old friend and a big fan of comedy - I feel like I took advantage of his time, because he was there FOREVER. But the payoff was great, because he was hilarious.
Elizabeth Banks I had also never met before - and I don't think she quite knew what she was getting into - but I've seen her since then and she is so effusive about the show, and says she has friends who are really into it.
Ed Helms was so awesome and gracious - he even came to the wrap party, and told us he wanted to come back as a character in season two (we couldn't work out the timing, since he's so busy, but I hope it'll happen in season three)
And weird Al - how much of a dream get is that for a young kid who grew up wanting to be him? He's the nicest, sweetest, funniest guy.
And big ups to Will Forte - who didn't come as himself, but who has done characters in both seasons, and even mentioned the show on Larry King LIve!
What's it like hanging out with Paul F. Tompkins all the time? Can there be a podcast with Gordon Ramsey and the cake boss? Paul is a dream - super nice and ALWAYS funny. That's a great idea about Ramsey and Cake Boss! I'll run it up the flag pole.
IPods? iPads? To give a serious answer: I don't know anymore.
What shampoo does Reggie Watt's hair require? Reggie has Head and Shoulders, so he uses that brand. If there were a brand called "Entire Human Body," he would probably use that, because it's a little more specific.
off, just want to thank you for all the free comedy over the years. You would be an inspiration to me if I wasn't so lazy. My question is simple: Would you rather be a professional taint model, and reap all the fame and fortune that comes with such a gig, OR Live a quiet, uneventful life in which nobody ever sees, or wants to see your taint - but your dominant hand has been replaced with a fully functioning stun-baton? How often do I have to charge the baton?
Every 30 seconds or your heart stops. When you say fame and fortune that comes with such a gig - how MUCH is that?
Do you have any input into which characters people play on Comedy Bang Bang? Every once in a rare while we'll discuss it briefly - for instance, when Taran Killam and Paul Brittain were on the other day, they were trying to figure out what they wanted to do, and we were sort of spitballing - and Paul said "What about a couple of dads who have a band?" And we both said, "yep, that's it" Usually no more than that. They are all really funny people, so I let them do whatever they want to do.
Where is Bob Ducca? We miss him. Seth has been really busy lately! He was on Go On. I've asked him a few times to return, and he really wants to, but has had a packed schedule. I will let him know that the fans are clamoring for him, though!
Counting down from -1, what are the top 10 reasons to watch CBB Season 2? I'd rather count down from 1, if you don't mind...
1: We have great guests this season 0: We actually filmed it, so why not watch it? -1: We encode secret messages in every episode which describe where to find treasure (both buried and un-buried) -2: Reggie Watts is actually afraid of cameras, so it's rare to see him in front of one -3: What else are you doing on a Friday night at 10pm? (other than having fun) -4: There are twenty episodes this year, so that means double the chance I will have an ugly sweater on -5: I got to sit next to Jessica Alba, so I don't really care if you watch or not - that was awesome -6: Bruce "The Boss" Springsteen makes a surprise cameo this year as Tim "Tool Time" Taylor -7: It will raise your IQ exactly one point and -8: You don't want to be listed in the Snubs & Flubs edition of Entertainment Weekly!
I assume the floor is open for questions. How did you get into comedy? Did you start by writing, doing stand-up sketch? What inspired you to do whatever you did? I was an actor and a playwright who was trying to break into the writing business. I wrote a one-hour pilot that was kind of a drama-comedy (like the plays I was writing at the time). But in my personal life, I was always really into comedy - I just never thought I could do it. I thought my sense of humor was too weird or dark. It went over really really well, and I was surprised - I kind of expected to bomb. But in the alt-comedy scene, I found a bunch of like-minded people who had similar senses of humor. I threw myself into performing, giving it my all, and eventually, Bob Odenkirk liked the writing of our bits so much, he sort of adopted us (the way he would for Tim & Eric and The Birthday Boys over the next few years), and offered us a job on Mr. Show. But there's no one path to getting into comedy - you just have to love it and constantly do it, and eventually the right people will see you and offer you jobs, hoping to suck your talent dry for their own projects (the way I do with my writers!)
Scott, why does Reggie Watts no longer perform the theme song live in studio every week? Budget issues? Scheduling conflicts? Internal discord? The people want answers! He got so tired jetsetting around the globe... people don't know this, but that's why we had to take so many plane breaks - he was always in them, traveling to and "fro" (PUN INTENDED). Now that he doesn't do it live, no need for anymore plane breaks, which I'm sure makes the fans happy, since they slow down the show so much!
MY WIFE and I are big fans of both the podcast and the TV series. Judging by the S2 trailer, the show looks a lot more fantasty-sketch based than S1. After S1, did you make some tweaks to the format to explore the crazy visuals imagined in the podcast? How did you approach transitioning the podcast into a TV show (very well, I might add!)? Yes, we did change the format a bit - plus we were able to stretch the budget out over 20 episodes, which makes everything a little more cheap to produce - so we could do bigger things this year. And when I met with the marketing people, that was one thing I really wanted to convey to them (so they could convey it to the public) - that the show is really a sketch show that LOOKS like a talk show. The transition for me was very exciting - making the pilot was a big experiment, but when we were done, we felt like we made the right template for the show. I guess some folks were surprised that it wasn't EXACTLY like the podcast, but I didn't want to do a show where we were all sitting around a desk, Real Time style, just having a conversation. This show is kind of like the sketch show I've always wanted to make.
Hey Scott, huge fan, I have two quick questions about the podcast. When will you and Pete Holmes to the o' podcast switcheroo? I want to see Pete on bang Bang and I would love to see you Make It Weird. When will some of your old Mr Show buddies that haven't been on the podcast yet like John Ennis and Jay Johnston be on? Pete's schedule has never worked out the times I've asked him to do it - but sometimes it's so last minute, I can't expect people to be able to drop everything and do it. I'm supposed to do YMIW soon - we just need to schedule both of our shows. Love Pete! And John Ennis is on the TV show this year - I kind of don't know where Jay is really lately =- I don't have his contact info - but would love to have him.
You're in a desert, walking along in the sand, when all of a sudden you look down and see a tortoise, Scott. It's crawling toward you. You reach down and flip the tortoise over on its back, Scott. The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over, but it can't. Not without your help. But you're not helping. Why is that, Scott? Because MOMMY NEVER HELPED ME!!!
Why do you refuse to have Paul F. Tompkins on the TV show? IT'S BEEN two seasons now! IT'S BEEN too long!
Rot Flounderman, how fuckable is Brian Posehn's son really? Haha, you're a MONSTER!!!
Who's your favorite PFT character? I have to admit, I don't really know anything about Werner Herzog, so i was a little nervous to do that first show with him. But now he's more of a German weirdo who has other bizarre interests. I really love Andrew Lloyd Weber, probably. I think we have the most to talk about (I know that sounds strange, but our conversation flows really easily)
Have you ever had an awkward encounter with any of the celebrities that your guests impersonate on the podcast? Thanks for casting all them pods. Usually the people who are impersonated are pretty far removed from our sphere... I'm not really running into Andrew Lloyd Weber that much. I thought we might have gotten into trouble saying that people are going to be on the show, since we never say they're not actually them, but it's kind of like SNL, I guess, where it's obviously parody or satire.
Hey Scott! How many writers work together on ifc's comedy bang bang? And what advice would you give to someone who would like to work as a comedy writer for television? Writers: Neil Campbell (former artistic director of UCB LA) 3 people from the sketch show "The Birthday Boys" (Who have a show coming out in October on IFC) - Tim Kalpakis, Dave Ferguson, & Mike Hanford Eva Anderson - who is from a sketch group called "A Kiss From Daddy" at UCB LA Paul Rust - producewriter from Arrested Development and star of "I Love You Beth Cooper" Seth Reiss - head writer of the Onion.
Advice - move to LA or NYC, write a whole bunch of scripts, write fast and don't get too precious about your work. The faster you write, the more you'll be able to re-write. Get people to take a look at your work, and don't get mad at the feedback they give! They're usually right.
How did Reggie become a part of the show? When we first started talking about the show, EVERYTHING was under discussion - what the set would look like, would I have a desk, what would I wear - and the music on the show was a big part of that discussion. Dan Pasternack, the executive at IFC who championed the show, suggested Reggie, and I knew immediately it would fit right in with what we were trying to do - his presence, instead of a ten piece band, subverts the genre in the way we were trying to do across the board. And he's one of the funniest dudes out there, and makes the show two thousand percent better.
I feel like you do a few slightly different "Scott Auckermans." Scott on the CBB podcast, the TV show, and even on other podcasts are all tonally kind of different. Is this intentional? If so, what kind of thought goes into that? Love the show(s). Yeah it's a little intentional, but it always changes. I have my sort of "role" on various things - when I'm on Doug Loves Movies, I try to be just a sarcastic dick, choosing my moments to make fun of something. In fact, when I was just on with Anthony Jeselnik, he was so good at that, and so funny, I kind of felt like I had nothing to add to it!
The tv show scott is a little goofier, and friendly. sometimes clueless. Podcast scott goes thru phases - conservative pundit, blowhard who asks questions to which he does not care about the answer. I also have to over-annunciate to make sure I don't mumble, like I do in real life, so that affects my character sometimes.
In interviews I've heard you say that there was a guest who didn't really "get" Comedy Bang Bang/ Comedy Death Ray, would you be willing to finally reveal who it is? No, cause they're a cool person, and it was just a misunderstanding. once you put something like that out there, you are constantly asked about it (much like how I've been asked about this constantly since I vaugely mentioned it), and I don't want to inflict that upon them.
You frequently ask guests extremely personal questions, such as their home address- and then a few months ago you accidentally posted your home address on instagram. Did anyone send you anything weird? No, thank goodness! No one cares about me.
Now that folks like Andrew Lloyd Weber and Garry Marshall have burst through the open door policy to become invited guests, will they ever try out their own new characters on the show? Haha, that's a great idea - i think the closest we've ever come is the whole Mike the Janito Lord ALW fiasco - but i will suggest that, and see if anything comes of it!
Mustard or pants? Mustard-stained pants.
Here’s my questions: 1) is there anywhere we can find audio and/or video of your stand-up? 2) any chance we’ll get another Kroll/Mulaney or Mantzoukas/Andy Daly episode soon-ish? Those are two of the best pairings. Always hilarious. Would love kroll/mulaney back -when is john in LA? And i know there is a Zouks / Daly one coming out at some point soonish.
Would you rather live in a universe where the only version of Bat Dance was a 30-minute jam version by Phish or a universe where Prince could only play Phish covers? Would I have to listen to Bat Dance?
Marry, fuck, kill: Gary Marshall (Please, call him Gary), Lord ALW, and Cake Boss (Cake Boss) Fart - Cake Boss, definitely - look at him Garry - Garry Marshall Kiss - Lord ALW is a member of KISS.
What are your thoughts are on women in comedy, given the fact that you are married to a comedienne and are in a position to promote female comics? Women in comedy - you're slipping a serious question in there in between two joke ones! well, there are super hilarious women out there, and it's our job to make sure that EVERYONE is represented. There maybe is a case to be made in the past for it being harder for women to get into the business, but now, with things like the UCB Theatre, there is NO excuse!
CLOSING THE FLOOR FOR QUESTIONS. Thank you! Well, first of all, it's Fart, Mary Kiss -- but I'm going to change it to Fart, Garry, Kiss, for this question.
Thanks Scott. Keep up the amazing work. Also, my fiance, who also listens to Who Charted? slipped that one in. She also wanted to know how you met Ku Ku. See you never at the post office! At a Mr. Show taping - i knew her roommate.
What CBB joke/bit did you think was hilarious but the audience just didn't seem to connect with? Most people don't seem to like Alive or Dead or Hollywood Facts... but i loved them!
On the TV show, we were very surprised (and relieved) that things we thought were hilarious, like "Maybe It's Just Me, But For Me" or "Tsk-Tsk Attaboy" were embraced -they're kind of hard to explain, and there aren't a lot of bits like them on TV, so we were nervous.
Do you know Reggie Watts on a first name basis? FIrst, last and middle initial! Reginald Q. Wattersmith.
Hot tub foot? Parallel parkinsons disease.
Hey Scott, who has been your favorite non-impersonated guest you've had on the podcast? Or alternatively the celeb who you couldn't believe you actually got to come in and record? I love having Adam Scott on the show... he's on so much, he could be considered a regular. We have very similar senses of humor (and voices, people tell us). Similarly, Amy Poehler is one of my favorites - I can't bug her that much to do the podcast, but once a year is great for me!
Have you played Words With Friends with Gillian since the...incident? What kind of cake does Cake Boss smell like? We have decided to keep our friendship non-WWF for now. I will let everyone know if this changes.
If you could have dinner with any three of your fictional character guests from CBB, which three would you pick? Definitely not fourvel - that would be too dangerous. Probably Marissa Wompler, but I'd ask Listler to stay at home. Probably Ice-T, because I drink it a lot... and I feel so sorry for Bob Ducca, I'd probably feel like i HAD to invite him!
Did you ever expect Comedy Bang Bang to get this big when it was originally Comedy Death Ray? I never expected to get my own talk show, no.
Also does Reggie hide anything in his hair? If so, what does he hide? A smaller Reggie!
Hi Hung Stockingman. Thank you for all the free content. What's the hardest you've ever laughed making the podcast? Was it when Bjork said "fart into her pussy" or something else? I remember laughing super hard at Odenkirk and Andy Dick... that was very early on. I also remember laughing super hard recently, but I can't remember at what. Oh! Neil Campbell's freestyle rap in today's episode was something that made me die laughing.
The Andy RichteJessica St. Clair episode was one of the first I listened to and it got me hooked. Did you know Marissa Wompler was going to be so popular right away, or did it take a few episodes? I saw Jess do that character on stage (in a neck brace, if you can imagine), and knew I had to get her on the show. The weird thing is, her husband is a huge fan of the show, and can't believe Jess has become one of the most beloved characters. It's such an imaginiative characterization, I'm so glad people have taken to it.
After reading your IMDB I've always been curious, exactly what part did you have in creating Shark Tale? I was brought in to write the sequel about a year before Shark Tale came out. The weird thing about animated movies is, they take three years, and sometimes don't really have a completed script when they begin. So Shark Tale 1 was in a state of disarray when I got there, which made making the sequel a little difficult, since we didn't know why any of the characters were doing what they were doing yet. So we got asked to contribute to writing the first one for a year, until it was released, and then we would move on to the sequel.
We turned in the sequel, which was REALLY funny, and way better than the first one, in my opinion. But we were told that, even though it was the best script Dreamworks had ever received, the algorithm of how much $ a film needed to make to get a sequel didn't quite work out, and so they were going to pass. I went on to do a draft of Puss in Boots for the company - all cool people. But you'd be surprised how much of a mess most animated movies are until right before they come out.
Chalktaw, can we please see a return of Dueling Jimmy Stewarts on the podcast/show? MAH WYFE. Who was the duel with? Besser? I can't remember!
Scott, what are some of your favorite comic series today? I really like Avengers Arena, Fraction's FF, Fantastic Four and Hawkeye, loved Jonathan Hickman's Fantastic Four, and wonder where he's taking the Avengers - Dan Slott's Superior Spider-Man (his whole run of SM), Invincible... I would have said Morning Glories, but I can't follow it on a monthly basis anymore - i need to re-read the trades and figure out what's going on. Loved Avengers Academy when it was out - such a shame it went away. Oh, and Fables is my all time favorite, and Saga has begun incredibly!
Would you rather be immortal and your fingers always smell like peanut butter OR die young but be remembered as a God? Chunky peanut butter? and am i a god, or just remembered as one?
How much of "Comedy Bang! Bang!" is scripted and how much is improvised?...Also, just would like to say "Comedy Bang! Bang!" has become one of my favorite shows on Netflix! Thank you so much! About a third or a half is improvised... I've seen other fake talk shows, like Fernwood 2-Night, or Knowing Me, Knowing you with Alan Partridge, and I could tell they were always fully scripted. After doing the Between Two Ferns videos, I liked the feel of totally spontaneous interviews that we would edit together, so I wanted to incorporate that into the show, as well as the gold that comedians come up with when they're on the spot.
Pretty much the rule of thumb is, if I'm talking to a guest, it's usually improvised, and if it's a sketch, it's written.
Hot tacoman! why don't YOU do some characters on the podcast? Have a guest host for half an episode and just let yourself go. I would love to hear that. Thank you for my all time favorite podcast. PFT and I want to do one where he plays a charac for a half hour, then we switch and he hosts while I play one - we haven't set it up yet, but some day!
Hello Hot Saucerman. Thanks for doing this AMA! Are any more Earwolf podcasts becoming tv shows? How did this Get Made could really use some video. More Mantzoukas! We hope so! Can't talk about anything yet.
My girlfriend left me on the same night Season 1 of "Comedy Bang! Bang" premiered. Will season 2 be good enough to make her regret her decision? SHE ALREADY REGRETS IT.
How much time do you and Reggie spend cuddling during shooting? Only the first three hours... we don't like to keep the crew waiting much longer than that.
Why's the show named that? It was something MY WAIFE was saying in a stereotypical Asian accent (I mean "her accent"), and it was making us laugh. Plus, i think it conveys excitement.
Is the floor open for questions? Not yet.
How much prep does Zach and the guest do before they tape Between 2 Ferns? And has Zach every broke character when doing it? None and constantly.
As far as music goes, what is your opinion on the Beatles? Maybe it's just me, but for me? They started a certain "mania"
I love CBB, the Jason Mantzoukas an Andy Daly episodes especially. My question is, how much thought goes into pairing specific people with each other? Do you notice certain characters working best with certain people? It's a little like alchemy - you never know what you're gonna get. But when you hit upon a great combo, it's so good.
Scott! Welcome. Thanks a lot for your podcast. I listen to Earwolf all the time. It really helps to pass the time at work. I'm so glad you're doing this AMA because I have been dying to ask you this for YEARS. How's it going? Whew boy! Pass.
What is Fabrice-Fabrice like in real life? Nothing like how he is on the show... kind of an introverted, butch, square.
Besides Phish, what is the greatest concert you have ever seen? I saw Prince seven or eight times last year, and those were the greatest. Also, I saw a Fishbone show back in 1988 that blew me away. Crowded House in 1987 was so fun and musically great, it led me to a lifetime love of all things Neil Finn.
On a scale of 1-10, how excited are you to see Phish at the Hollywood Bowl? Shelby said the other day that she's been dreading it for so long, she's actually come back around to excited. Harris let us know yesterday that he rented a limo, so we'll be there in style!!
Do you have any plans for doing another episode of Analyze Phish? One of my favorite podcasts. Just came out yesterday - take a list3en!
Would you rather fight a thousand ear sized wolves or one wolf sized ear? Can the wolf-sized ear hear me if I scream to distract it?
I know that you've "discovered" a lot of comedians in your time, who would you say to be your biggest and best "find"? I was proud to give people like BJ Novak, Dan Mintz, and Paul Rust and Neil Campbell their first hollywood jobs.
What celebrity have you been most surprised to find out is a fan of the show/podcast? It was cool that Anna Kendrick was the first celeb to sign on to do the TV show - she said she was a big fan. Bobby Moynihan listens every week, and that's really cool.
What is your favourite episode of the upcoming seasons of CBB (ie. which episode can we look forward to the most?) And yes, I'm sure they're ALL great, but c'mon. ;) We did freeystyle rap today - what am i thinking goes in and out, but hopefully will return!
Do you actually like the Barenaked Ladies? Also, what's your favorite comic you're reading right now? Let me know and I'll tell MY WIIIFE. I do... i saw them a bunch back in the nineties. i think i answered the comic book question above!
Do you think Trey should jam out tube more? Oh OF COURSE.
Will i hear a return of the washington monugents the next comming election?!?! Haha, they almost came back july 4, but i couldn't get my shit together! I think Hodgman would have enjoyed them, with his Whiffenpoofs experiences.
If someone wrote down everything everyone said in an episode of your podcast and had actors performing it, would it be as funny? Or is there something, for lack of a better word, magical, about the fact that nobody knows where the conversation is going that makes it funnier? I think so - that's why we improv on the TV show instead of scripting it.
What do you talk about during the breaks? Do you just catch your breath or do you ever try to plot out the next segment in terms of where you're going to try to take things? We usually don't do much during the break - sometimes it'll just be a few seconds. sometimes someone goes to the bathroom.
Mr. Saucerman, I always listen to Comedy Bang Bang when I'm cooking. Would you come do an episode from my dining room and I'll cook you and your guests a lovely dinner? WE'RE ALREADY THERE.
Whats up hotdog? Hmmm why haven't i ever thought of that before!
Hey Scott! How did the earwolf network come about? It's awesome that it has grown so large now since the days of CDR. Also, how is Andy Daly's hair and when will he be back? Hotdog was my first introduction to CBB and there aren't too many times I've laughed that hard at anything. Jeff ullrich came to me and wondered about managing the show... but then he suggested we start a podcast network. I thought it was a great idea. Most comics don't have the technical expertise to buy mics and edit/engineer a show. We have a great staff who do it professionally, and we take care of everything regarding the show. And Jeff has been killing it with ad sales, making a lot of the shows profitable.
How hard was it to stop your live show? After a couple years, I really just wanted to get to five years. then after that, I thought ten would be unimaginable. But at the ten year mark, I knew I was going into eight months of production, and I thought I wasn't doing the comedy community any good, being a person who doesn't see much comedy any more. that's doesn't make for a good show booker. So yeah, it was hard, but I think there are new shows popping up that will take its place, so everyone is in good hands.
Favourite non-earwolf podcast? Never Not Funny or Doug Loves Movies! and i did Kurt Braunohler's Boat Show the other day- that was a ton of fun.
Are you or anyone in your group planning on doing drugs at the Phish show at Hollywood Bowl? I know your stuff was bunk at the last show but you and PFT taking mushrooms and ruining Harris' experience has the makings of comedy gold. I love your work and wish you a long and happy career. I'll take em if PFT takes em.
What episode of Comedy Bang Bang would you say would be the best to introduce someone to the podcast? I couldn't possibly choose - but it might help to clue them in to the format of the show, instead of just having them listen cold.
Can I see you dance to the bat dance song? Why haven't you up til now?
Who have you been wanting to have on the show (podcast or tv) that you have been unable to obtain thus far? I'm so excited for the second season to start. Chris Elliott & Will Ferrell!

Questions Answers
As a food critic, how ballsy are you when it comes to trying new foods? Would you try delicacies such as Cambodian deep-fried tarantula? Or Chinese urine eggs? I'll gladly travel to strange parts of animals that I know (offal, etc.). But I'm less adventurous when it comes to really freaky stuff like Balut (a developing duck embryo that is boiled and eaten in the shell). But, I mean, I'll give most stuff a shot. So I would try the tarantula (sounds crunchy). But I would only eat the urine egg if it were marketed as R. Kelly's Soothing Urine Eggs.
Favorite food? Least favorite food? What advice do you have for anyone who also wants to become a food critic? Favorite food: Pastrami. Specifically, the #19 pastrami sandwich from Langer's in downtown L.A. Least favorite food: Iceburg lettuce. My broad advice for any aspring food critic: Get good at Twitter. The food community uses Twitter heavily, so that's where all the conversations are.
I'm a big fan of L.A. Foodie, but I've always been curious...how can you afford to go out to eat so much? Do you have a sponsorship? Did you save enough money at your old job to support yourself as a food critic? You're gonna hate me. The answer: a lot of the time I'm not footing the bill. L.A. Foodie (my company) gets invited to pretty much every restaurant that opens in Los Angeles. And if we want to go somewhere that didn't invite us? We just ask, and they almost always say yes. They know that if we come eat at their restaurant, we'll probably Tweet/Instagram/Vine/Facebook/TumblEtc. the experience. The exposure our audience is worth the risk of getting a bad review. (And if they run a good restaurant, they should be confident that it's going to go well.) Now, this makes it hard to be totally objective about the food and the experience since we're probably getting the royal treatment while we're there. So I regularly visit new places (or old favorites) unannounced, just so I can be sure that we're getting an authentic experience (I've never been recognized, and I doubt I ever will be). All in, I probably pay to go out to eat about the same amount as you. But I thank the food gods of mount Alton every day that I've been lucky enough to land in the position that I'm in -- being able to dine pretty anywhere for free is super rad.
What are key attributes needed to differentiate yourself in this field ? I reckon many people would like this job. There are a million ways to distinguish yourself -- it can be ANYTHING. Ben (my co-host... my name is Drew, by they way. Fuck. Sorry everybody. I'M DREW!!) and I sometimes joke that if we were to change the format of our podcast from 2 straight guys talking about food to 2 straight guys talking about food who also blow and fuck each other at the end, our podcast listenership would go up about a million percent. It just would. But I hate the way that Ben's dick tastes, so we've never gone that route.
Any amusing stories from being a food critic ? Amusing story? In the very early days of L.A. Foodie I visited a deli for lunch with some friends (Roll 'N' Rye in Culver City, CA). While I was there I thought, "I should put this on my new food blog. I like this place." I had a small camera with me, so I asked my waiter "Hey man, do you mind if I snap a few pics while I'm here?" He was like, "Um... why?" To which I had no answer. I wasn't ready for that response. So I said, "Oh, you know, it's nothing. Just for my dumb blog." He told me to wait there. Then he went and got the manager on duty. The manager called the owner -- I only know this because the manager came over and told me about his conversation with the owner. In the end, everyone agreed that my taking photos just wasn't a good idea at this time.
How do you choose what establishment to critic. What if there is specific food that you already dislike but have to consume and rate. In retrospect, the only good decision I made that day was to order my food before asking such a contentious question. The food was good, by the way.
I'll admit - it's an acquired taste. Musky.
How did the situation with his dick and your mouth present itself? :) Ben was changing light bulbs in the nude. I was practicing silently screaming while blindfolded and walking around the house. One thing led to another and we had some wine and watched The Notebook... and I blew him.
As someone who is currently in the restaurant business (and hopes of opening of an establishment in the future) what are your pet peeves in a restaurant (service or food)? Is there something that makes you refuse to eat there again? It pisses me off when a restaurant prioritizes their own high and mighty food over their customers' wants and needs. Any place that won't allow customizations fall into this category. If I want to order my steak well done and cover it in mustard and pay you $50 for the privilege, then you should strive to get me back for a ruined mustard steak as often as possible. Some day, maybe you'll even dedicate a burning mustard colored chair in my honor.
So you make great food? Good for you. But guess what? You don't exist without your customers, so why are you trying to piss them off so bad?
Why was food critic your dream job? That's an awesome question -- one that I've never thought about before now. Um... I guess it's because I'm just really passionate about food. I believe that food is the one thing that directly connects every person on earth. Eating is like breathing in that it's one of the most basic things that we all know. I go ape shit for things like the Bacon Avocado (a variety that actually isn't very good, but can you imagine the dance that I did at the farmers market when I was informed of its name?) and perfect brisket (Franklin BBQ in Austin. You're welcome) and two tacos for 99 cents (in this economy??). So I want to share that passion with all y'all.
Bacon avocado? I don't like avocado but bacon makes it sound awesome. Side note - every 4th of July my fraternity has a "Baconpalooza", where there is lots of alcohol and every dish has to have bacon in it some way. I feel like that would be heaven for someone like yourself. Every time I think that bacon has jumped the shark, I eat bacon -- and then I'm reminded that this is BACON we're talking about here. It fucked the shark and never called it back.
It is awesome on pretty much everything. Ever had bacon dipped in nutella? You must try it. C'mon son! Of course.
How'd you make the transition from agency career to food critic? Was there a drop in earnings? If so, how did you handle that? I was able to buffer my no-money time by selling some shares in a digital marketing agency that I started with a colleague. The drop in earnings was pretty big. I went from making about $120,000/year to maybe $50-$60K this year (if I'm lucky). But L.A. Foodie is growing both in audience size and the amount of money that we make. So as long as that continues, I know that at some point down the road I'll be back to what I was earning before. Except this time, I'm doing something awesome.
Have you ever had a meal during a review that was completely horrible? If so, and they claimed they messed up, would you allow them to redo it? It happens all the time. In fact, I just ate a hamburger from Lyfe Kitchen, newly opened in downtown Culver City. (I didn't personally review the place, I was just there to eat.) It wasn't a very good burger. Pretty much everything was tasty except for the patty, but without good meat a burger is obv doomed.
Guess what happened? Like, 5 days later, we were hosting one of our #BiteFlite events (burgebeer pairing) in Culver City. A guy shows up and asks me a couple of questions while he was sampling some beers. One of them was, "What have you eaten lately?" My answer was, "The burger at Lyfe Kitchen." He said, "Oh, wow! I probably made that burger. I cook there! Did you like it?" I said, "Actually, no. I thought that everything but the patty was really good. But overall I didn't dig it." To which he replied, "OH! That's actually really good to know! We're in the process of upgrading our equipment because we weren't satisfied with how the burgers were turning out. Please come back!" I'll definitely go back now. I wouldn't have before.
Lesson: You gotta be honest with the people who make your food if they ask. It's a super awkward thing, but it's a useful skill.
It pisses me off when a restaurant prioritizes their own high and mighty food over their customers' wants and needs. Any place that won't allow customizations fall into this category. If I want to order my steak well done and cover it in mustard and pay you $50 for the privilege, then you should strive to get me back for a ruined mustard steak as often as possible. Some day, maybe you'll even dedicate a burning mustard colored chair in my honor. So you make great food? Good for you. But guess what? You don't exist without your customers, so why are you trying to piss them off so bad? I reread this, and it sounds like I'm yelling at you. Sorry about that. I'm not, of course. I'm yelling at the fictional "you" that won't serve me mustard steak. I love you very much, thecakebible.
Have you heard about all of the internet craziness on Amys Baking Company in Scottsdale? Your Thoughts? My take on that fiasco: Don't bullshit people in social media because everybody's a fucking detective now. They were peddling a bullshit product, right? I mean selling stuff that they said was theirs but wasn't? And then trying to cover it up and backpedal, right? Shit was retarded on their part. What was the outcome anyway? Didn't they all go to jail for raping dolphins or something totally unrelated?
Are you a traveling food critic? or exclusively local? For right now, I'm just a Los Angeles food critic (because that's where I live). But L.A. Foodie has plans to expand nationally. BUT -- I did a cool Route 66 project where I drove from Chicago to L.A. and ate awesome stuff the whole way. Check it out! Link to eating-route-66.tumblr.com
How do you feel about the overwhelming evidence that wine tasting is BS? Meaning, the supposed difference between a $50 bottle and a $500 bottle isn't detected in blind taste tests, but nevertheless wine critics blather on about tannins and hints of chicory. Do you think this applies to food as well? I remember reading that we (humans) can distinguish 3 different flavors at once. That sounds about right to me. I've never been into wine, mainly because I don't like the ways that it tastes. But also because I can't stand the high and mighty attitude that has been scientifically proven to be bullshit. I gravitated to beer partially for this reason, but now I'm afraid that beer is headed in the same direction. I hope that the craft beer community can stay grounded.
I don't mean fast food vs. high end, I mean low-high-end vs. super-high-high-end. In my opinion, all of the greatest dining experiences are NOT expensive. Yes, bullshit abounds in the food community.
What is your favorite off the shelf ketchup? My favorite off the shelf ketchup is Hunt's. (Bring it. I can take it.)
Have you tried places/dishes that Johnathan Gold has raved about and thought "wtf?" because it didn't live up? What did you do, then? I think that if you go to a place to Jonathan Gold recommends, you're going to be satisfied with that choice about 100% of the time. The dude knows his craft.
I've developed a theory that the first couple items on a menu – in each section – are usually the best. Do you find this often holds true? Actually, yes. I do. Don't they teach classes on this stuff in culinary school. Anybody here go to culinary school?
What food/place inspired your most scathing review? As an organization (everybody who writes for L.A. Foodie agrees), L.A. Foodie holds that Umami Burger isn't "all that." Umami is often recognized as the best burger in town, and I think that's bullshit. It's good, but there are lots better.
Personally, the only time I can remember actually posting a "scathing" review was Russian River Brewing Company. To this day, I still think that all of their beers are overrated.
Are you concerned about weight gain that might be associated with it? I would love to get into the business of bar and restaurant consulting, a la, Bar Rescue. But you know, with less hoopla. Yeah, I'm definitely worried about getting fat. I have a 2 (ish) year old son, so I think about health a lot these days. I was what any normal passer-by would call "A Fat Guy" in college. When I tipped the scales at 220 (I'm 5'8"), I decided to drop the weight. I lost it all with a low carb/high protein diet, which I kept up for over 10 years. And now I maintain my present weight with portion control. I eat pretty much anything, but just not very much of it.
Currently on a low carb/high protein diet myself...when you went back to eating carbs more regularly (even in smaller portions) did that cause you to gain any weight back? A little, yeah. I read somewhere that sometimes people can sort of recalibrate their bodies to handle more complex carbs than before the low carb diet. I don't know... maybe that's bullshit. But I got really good at detecting the things that messed with my blood sugar (woozy feeling, kinda light headed for a while), so I cut those out of my diet as much as possible. Now, I just don't eat very much at any single sitting and that seems to do the trick.
Weirdest thing you have tried but actually tasted good? My immediate memory is of the first time I ever tried fried ice cream at Dos Hombres in the Brookside area of Kansas City. I was probably 5 years old. Fried ice cream sounded like the grossest thing I had ever heard of. My parents told me that I would like it, and they ordered it for me. I was like, "Fine. I'm not going to eat that shit." It arrived, and it looked like a big brown ball of dirty carpet. My parents FORCE FED me the goddamn fried ice cream... and it was divine. But here's the thing: I couldn't admit that I loved it because I had so assuredly stated that my opinion would not be swayed.
God, kids are so stupid. The outcome of this whole affair was that not only could I not finish the delicious fried ice cream that night (on account of my own pride), but I could never order it ever again because that would be an admission of defeat after the fact. By the time I started going out to restaurants with my friends, I was a teenager. I cared a lot more about about how to get them to serve us beer than my dessert options.
Lesson: I missed an entire childhood of delicious fried ice cream because of my own foolish pride. And it was worth every petty little second.
I've always wondered what it was like to be a food critic. After you quit your job, what were some of your biggest struggles to achieve your dream? Making money. Gotta pay the bills. Right now L.A. Foodie makes almost all of its money hosting local food events. We give pretty much everything else away for free (videos, podcast, photos, etc.). This model seems to be working at the moment.
I assumed that when I started that I would eventually be able to make money from our online content by either selling advertising or charging for our premium content. That didn't happen fast enough for me, so I pursued a different route. Now that L.A. Foodie is making some money, we can invest a little bit in other things -- it gives me a little more flexibility to play around with silly new ideas.
With the ever expanding city of Houston, the food scene is expanding as well. What's the best method to begin the journey as a food critic? Hubcap Grill! My sister and her family live in Houston, so I get to see what's up from time to time. My advice for aspiring food critics is to learn Twitter really well. Build up a following there, and then you'll have a platform on which to share the content that you create, whether that's blog posts, videos, animated GIFs, whatever. But your content needs to be unique in some way -- put yourself on the other side of the Twittertube and consider what would make that person think, "I gotta share this with my bros!!!" Good luck making it through the summer unmelted! In high school, I dated the daughter of the guy who owned Stroud's at the time. We were kinda besties, and he taught me to cook. For Christmas one year, he bought me an entire kitchen's worth of pro equipment (couple of skillets, a big pot, spoons, whisk, knives, etc.). It was the cheap stuff, but it was real. Jim taught me how to make a steak, how to make fried eggs, how to make ice cream, etc. A lot of the basics. My mom and grandma also contributed a love of food but not exactly a love of cooking. And then in college I practiced my ass off -- well, actually I practiced my ass ON in college where I gained 40+ pounds, yikes. When I moved to California about 12 years ago, I have year round access to amazing ingredients -- something that I still don't take for granted. So I learned some basic skills in high school, got better in college, and now it's way more about the ingredients. Jesus, did that answer your question at all?
Also, do you have any culinary experience? I forgot to answer the second part (sorry). None of my culinary experience is professional except for a turn as a host for 2 weeks at Stroud's fried chicken in Kansas City, MO and another couple of weeks at a catering gig (where I cooked a little but mostly did other stuff).
Worst food story you've encountered or that your toilet has encountered? The hardest that I've ever diarrhea'd in my life was after eating a chili size (burger patty covered in chili, beans, cheese, and onions) at Barney's Beanery on the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica, CA. I swear to god when my butt-hole exploded it was so painful that I cried grown up man tears.
Funny side story: My friend Patrick had JUST moved to California to work for me at the agency where I worked at the time. He had also eaten with me that night, and his new job started that next day. While Patrick wasn't foolish enough to order the chili size, he did make the general mistake of eating at Barney's Beanery that night. He also suffered from muddbutt that night so severely that he couldn't go to work the next day. His first day of work at a new job in a NEW STATE! Good thing I was his boss. I did fire him eventually, though. So that's kind of sad.
Do you have any food allergies? Can people with food allergies be food critics, or is it too difficult to rate enough of the food? I don't have any food allergies. But I prefer not to eat insanely spicy foods because I am a pussy and heartburn hurts. Luckily my cohost Ben would eat the sun if you dared him just right. So I guess between the two of us, we're almost one complete person.
Do you have allergies? Strawberries? Gin? What is it? Just avoid that shit, justabaldguy. Now that I've typed that, I realize that you are allergic to hair (rimshot). But seriously, justabaldguy, having allergies is your angle. That's an interesting blog that I would read. Inject a ton of personality and make yourself sound really pathetic when you're describing why you can't eat eggs for the 50th time. LOL, I would totally read that blog.
I'm allergic to pretty much all nuts, anything from the sea (fish, shellfish, etc), and chicken. I have different reactions to each, so I carry an epipen and stick to beef and pork. Kinda boring, but I can see how that would make an interesting blog. I could totally whine about it too! I don't think that's boring at all. I used to work on film sets with this awesome cinematographer named Fred, who is deathly allergic to all nuts. Carries an epipen like you -- has some STORIES about having to use it. But after spending time with Fred, I feel like severe food allergies make you a kind of James Bond. You're always on the lookout for the enemy, who could be disguised as literally anything. You have developed a special set of skills...
Have you ever wanted to go to Rural America and try some of the food around there (mainly in the southeast and the Midwest)? Midwest Food 4 Life, da_asparagus. I was born and bred in Kansas City, Missouri. I played soccer with Catholic kids. Drinking is a sport there. The most ambitious food trip I ever did was Route 66 from Chicago to L.A. I blogged about the whole thing here: Link to eating-route-66.tumblr.com
What kind of successful agency career? How was the money? My resume would have you believe that I'm a Senior-Level Marketing Strategist. I was pretty successful, but not wildly successful. I made about $120,000/year when I quit.
Your resume is pretty damn impressive and 120 grand a year would be amazing. I am a web developer working for an ad agency an hour south of Pittsburgh and im not making enough just making websites and graphic design. Not even close to enough. I dont have a degree and im self taught and would love to stay in this industry but with better pay. Do you have any advice for a guy like me? It's HARD out there for a digital pimp right now. I don't know anybody hiring in that area right now, but I'll ask. My only advice is to keep working on the thing that you do... it can be anything. Get some buddies together and make a fake website with a funny video. Or just keep designing logos and websites for free until somebody starts to give a shit. People will tell you not to undervalue your time, and that's true. But it only starts to matter once you start making enough -- and you say you're not even close. If you have to make sandwiches at Subway to pay the rent, you do what you gotta do. But keep doing the thing (websites/design) that you want your career to be in. Eventually, somebody will notice your shit. And if you're good enough (are you good enough?), you'll end up in conversations with people who can give you a job. Sooner or later, your timing will be right and somebody will be hiring and you'll get a job. And then that will eventually lead to more jobs. Or something like that.
In my experience, it takes a minimum of 30 days from the point that you start looking for work for ANYTHING to happen. If nothing has happened in 60 days, change your strategy. But then be prepared to wait another 30 days to see results. Yeah, I know. It sucks. It takes time. And it seems like it's taking forever. But this is what has worked for me, more or less.
Seattle. What's your go to spot? I haven't been to Seattle since I was 8. I need to get back. What's YOUR go to spot for when I visit?
Paseos in Ballard. 10 min from downtown. Get the Midnight Pork. I'll go at Midnight.
Not open. Get there early, they run out. Bring cash...and a napkin. I will bring my newest invention, The Cashpkin (R)
How? I have a supportive wife who doesn't freak out when I do crazy things. I also sold some shares of an agency that I partially owned. That bought me enough time to figure out how to make money from L.A. Foodie's audience, which was already large before I left my day job. In all, I spend about a year building content for L.A. Foodie, and then another 6 months figuring out how to make money off of it. In the end, I didn't make any money off of the content -- we make money from events (for now). But there is no way that we could have launched events before we did. That year of building content was necessary.
Do you honestly feel like that would never happen in a million years, and you were really lucky? No. Because if I believed that luck brought success, I would still be sitting in an office right now instead of my kitchen doing this AMA. I use the words "luck" and "lucky" sometimes, but what I really mean is "grateful." I'm grateful for my wife, Ben, Lisa, Brian, Nick, Jasmine, Jen, Kara, Dasha, and all of the other awesome people that run L.A. Foodie with me.
The truth is, I have always strongly believed that "Regular guys. The best eats. You're welcome" as a concept would find an audience. And I just kept at it until I found lots of other people who are interested in the same stuff as me.
Wow good for you! I seem to always know what is wrong with food and how I could do it better! Here is a funny food critic story. I went to a restaurant in Westport, CT called "Le Farm" (amazing by the way) and they had a quote from a NY Times food critic under one of their desserts that said "slightly gimmicky". I tried to re-asses my understanding of the word gimmick to understand why they put a seemingly negative comment there. I looked up the article and as you can see it was not the most flattering aspect of the article. Was that a big FUCK YOU to the critic? Had to be! It must have been a jab -- pretty funny, actually. But then again, the chef isn't always the one who writes the menu. Sometimes the Manager doesn't even get any say. Sometimes the owner writes the menu, and sometimes owners are fucktards. So you never know :)
I don't see a byline on this... so i was wondering, do you actually write the articles you link to? On Twitter? I share everything that I write on the blog (and create elsewhere on YouTube, Instagram, etc.), but we share a lot more than that too. I tweet frequently, so a lot of those tweets are to other people's articles (like LAWeekly, etc.). Is that what you meant?
Link to blogs.laweekly.com. I'm also not the only person who writes for L.A. Foodie. We have a team of about 6 people who regularly contribute.
How does one become a food critic? One buys a hat on which is printed the typography, "Food Critic Motherfucker"
I think I've answered this question pretty thoroughly, but I'm happy to delve deeper. What else do you want to know?
One buys a hat on which is printed the typography, "Food Critic Motherfucker" I think I've answered this question pretty thoroughly, but I'm happy to delve deeper. What else do you want to know? God, I can sound like such a jerk sometimes. I just meant that I've explored this topic pretty thoroughly elsewhere in this thread. Perhaps I answer a more specific question for you?
Haha! It's cool! You seem like a good guy, no need to worry. I guess what I really want to know is if I was a 16 year old kid how would I go about becoming a food critic? Choose some sort of personality and then write from that point of view. So maybe you're the allergy food blogger guy, or maybe you only review eggs. The more specialized, the better (in my experience) -- as long as you can write about it forever (or make videos about it, or tweets or whatever). The thing you choose first doesn't even have to be the persona that you'll eventually develop. That will probably come naturally, and you'll learn what the audience you find likes (don't forget to ask them all the time).
You are lucky because you still have high school and college to get people interested in your thing. When I was in college, I started a comedy website called Horklezorp DOTCOM with some friends. It never turned into anything that made us any money, but it taught every single person involved skills that we still use today. I learned HTML, George learned how to code, we all learned how to write comedy (or maybe we didn't), which isn't as easy as it seems. But having people around you that are into your thing really helps.
Specific to being a food critic, just get out there and start doing it. Ultimately the only thing that restaurants and food brands care about is your audience. So you have you have a big enough audience on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vine, Tumblr -- whatever -- people will give you free meals in exchange for your honest opinion. PR people are just looking for excuses to invite food bloggers to things (in bigger cities -- not sure where you are located -- where are you?), so if you can establish yourself in the food community as a person who reviews things, that will open a lot of opportunities.
I feel like this is getting kind of serious, so here is a poop joke: What's brown and hangs in a bell tower? Dunggg.
Huh, alright I'll give that a try. Seems cool. How did you go about getting your name out there? Was it just slow building traffic or was there something you did for more people to know who you were? So here's a picture of a "special" cat: Link to i.imgur.com. That cat looks like it needs to sneeze. I started on Twitter because that's where all the food people seemed to be at the time. That still seems to be true now, but Instagram is big too. But a big enough following on any platform is where I would start again.
Given that you're in LA local what is your opinion on Roy Choi's mini empire that he's built. Not just Kogi trucks but his brick and mortar places like A-Frame and Chego? He had an awesome idea, and then he had the chops to pull of the business part too. Respek knuckles to Roy.
What was/is your HANDS DOWN favorite restaurant Arthur Bryant's BBQ in Kansas City, Missouri (the one on Brooklyn).
Bourbon. Also an effective social lubricant. But don't use is as actual lubricant. It's lubriCAN'T!
If you're eating at a restaurant, and it isn't very good, if/when the servemanager asks, how was it, are you honest, or do you just say "ok". Oh, man. Good one. If I'm eating "off the clock," which is my prickish way of saying "not for L.A. Foodie," I either say "It was fine," "It was good," or "it was great!" but I never complain unless there was a fixable problem with the food (I assume you mean crappy food in general, so that's what I'm talking about). In other words, if the food was generally not good, I don't admit that. Because the server usually doesn't give a shit except for how it impacted your dining experience. And if the server did a good job, I'm not going to base his gratuity (college-boy word) on the fact that I didn't care for the food -- that tip is about the service. And part and parcel of that point, if there IS something fixable about the meal (wrong item, fries are old, etc.), I do expect the server to help me fix it.
Langer's #19 - GREAT stuff! On the other hand, if I'm invited by the restaurant, I'm totally honest across the board. But I'll always choose to talk about the things that I liked over the things that I didn't.
