Hit The LiarTown USA Supermarket For These Weird Specials

Our new favorite Tumblr redesigns the weekly sale
May 30, 2014 10:00 am

Hope you're day's about as done as ours is, otherwise might we suggest a less crack-addictive Tumblr? LiarTown USA, by LA writer/graphic designer/general humorist Sean Tejaratchi, is a golden cornocopia of all that was previously innocuous, turned terrible. Scroll through for old books, magazines, records and TV shows you wish existed, porno spoofs that sound way better than the original (as is generally the case) and a way more exciting take on supermarket specials.   

Remember The Tumblr That Mashed Up Album Covers And Tacos? Viva Album Tacos!

Fall down the Tumblr hole of cover art and tacos
May 19, 2014 4:00 pm

This is an official call to our friends, Chicago-based DJs The Hood Internet, to please revive Album Tacos. Their Tumblr (as is congruous with their style) is a mashup of two great things: album art and, you guessed it, the mighty taco.

From The Blog-To-Book Universe: Kaffekokarkokboken

That's Swedish for coffee maker cuisine. Yum?
May 2, 2014 2:00 pm

All the recipes on Katja Wulff's blog, now a book, can be made using your standard coffeemaker. Frying bacon for cauliflower soup is as easy as removing the pot from the heating element and tossing it on the bare surface. What's it going to do, stick? It's bacon! (And coffeemakers are washable). This and more small appliance brilliance, after the jump.

For many readers of a particular age and geographical origin, Pizza Huts were a part of growing up. Remember the $4.99 lunch buffet? The Land Before Time puppets? Sadly, Pizza Huts are dying. But that doesn't mean the iconic structures die as well.

Steak Tartare, A Flashback From My Training Blog

Or, "none of my friends would eat what I made."
Mar 19, 2014 2:30 pm

My very first blog post seemed popular enough on Facebook, lots of comments arguing whether shotglasses filled with sea urchin, ponzu and sake were gross or delicious, so I followed it up with steak tartare. Most of my friends had tried the uni shooters with enough coaxing. But nobody would try the tartare, which was disheartening. Here's how I won that game.

5 '300 Sandwiches' Sandwiches I'd Honestly Probably Still Eat

Plus, how to get your girl to not dump you later
Oct 1, 2013 11:00 am

For those of you who don't get bitch-slapped by viral nonsense all the live-long day, 300 Sandwiches is a blog penned by a perfectly nice young lady who's being extorted to create and deliver sandwich after sandwich to her boyfriend in exchange for a diamond ring.
