The FINAL prediction of Nostradamus comes TRUE...BEHOLD the BACON MAC & CHEESE STUFFED DONUT.

America: the land of the free and the home of… extreme culinary creations designed to clog your arteries and make your mouth water. Take the KFC Double Down for instance, and the Krispy Kreme doughnut burger. Well now the bar for fattening and fried foods has been raised with the introduction of the bacon macaroni and cheese-stuffed doughnut, by PYT in Philadelphia: home of “America’s Craaaziest Burgers.” Well it looks like they’re trying to expand their horizons with wacky doughnuts too.

The mac n’ cheese-stuffed doughnut is described on the PYT website as being “straight outta the fat kid food lab,” and is a “warm glazed donut studded with cheesy, bacon-y mac & cheese, topped with crumbled bacon.” You can get the mac n’ cheese doughnut with a side of the cheeseburger-stuffed “D’oh Nut Burger,” which also launched at PYT this month. We really hope that these heart attack-inducing stuffed doughnuts come with a free cardiologist visit.

R.I.P. Ken ("Masahiro" from "Black Rain") Takakura, known as "The Clint Eastwood Of Japan"

He passed away on November 10th, just found his obit. Rest well, Taka-san.

Date of Birth 16 February 1931, Nakama, Fukuoka, Japan
Date of Death 10 November 2014, Tokyo, Japan (malignant lymphoma)





Ken Takakura was a Japanese actor best known for his brooding style and the stoic, honorable presence he brought to his roles.

Known as the "Clint Eastwood" of Japan, Takakura gained his streetwise swagger and tough guy persona watching yakuza turf battles over the lucrative black market and racketeering in postwar Fukuoka. This subject was covered in one of his most famous movies, Shôwa zankyô-den (1965) in which he played an honorable old-school yakuza among the violent post-war gurentai.

A graduate of the prestigious Meiji University in Tokyo, Takakura happened by an audition in 1955 at the Toei Film Company, and decided to look in. Toei found a natural in Takakura as he debuted with Denkô karate uchi (1956) (Lightning Karate Blow) in 1956. As luck would have it, Japan experienced a boom in gangster films in the 1960s as the Japanese people struggled with the generational differences between those raised in pre-war and post-war Japan and these were Takakura's stock in trade. His breakout role came in 1965 playing a ex-con antihero in Abashiri Bangaichi (1965). By the time he left Toei in 1976, he had appeared in over 180 films.

Takakura gained international recognition after starring in the 1975 Sydney Pollack sleeper hit The Yakuza (1974) with Robert Mitchum and is probably best known in the West for his role in Ridley Scott's Black Rain (1989) in which he surprises American cops played by Michael Douglas and Andy Garcia by showing he can speak English. He again proved himself bankable to Western audiences in the 1992 Fred Schepisi comedy Mr. Baseball (1992) starring Tom Selleck.

Kirk Cameron Ministers To Gay People In 'Deeper Understanding' Montage Video

Kirk Cameron Ministers To Gay People In 'Deeper Understanding' Montage Video

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/11/22/kirk-cameron-saving-gay-people_n_6203802.html

"The video was made for the blog "Everything is Terrible," which is a comedy site that features funny edits of found footage. We thought it would get a few laughs, and that would be the end of it. We weren't expecting it to be shared around the Internet as much as it has. But, it gives me great pleasure to show the world what an arrogant douchebag Kirk Cameron is.

I've noticed a lot of comments made that our edit is portraying Kirk purposely in a negative light. Yes, we did cherry-pick some of the more outrageous quotes and some things are presented out of context, but if you watch the entire, unedited video, the message of intolerance and hate is exactly the same.

One thing we were on the fence about including were the bits with the transgender woman. We didn't want to present her as someone to laugh at in the video, so I hope people recognize that she is a hero for standing up to their bullying (because that's what it really is -- "Why don't you just dress as a man and all your problems will be over" says Kirk's partner in crime, Ray Comfort)."

Cameron is currently taking a little time away from of his busy anti-queer agenda to try and save Christmas from the pagans, proving there truly is no rest for the wicked.

I'll be playing the Über-RARE 9 min. version of Buffalo Springfield's "Bluebird" on my show tonight

Along with "Last Dance" from the equally rare (NEVER released on CD) "Time Fades Away" album from Neil Young.

PLUS "Outside" (the new Foo Fighters song with Joe Walsh on lead guitar), and the LIVE version of Keith Richards doing "Gimme Shelter" from his "Eileen" EP.

And I hope you like jammin' too.

SHOCKING! President's announcement on immigration fell short of Jeb's expectations. SHOCKING!

Eyeing 2016, Clinton, Bush weigh in on Obama's immigration plan

WASHINGTON Thu Nov 20, 2014 11:03pm EST

Republican Jeb Bush, a former two-term Florida governor who is considering entering the race, said Obama's plan "undermines" efforts to forge permanent legislative reforms.

"It is time for Republican leaders in Congress to act. We must demonstrate to Americans we are the party that will tackle serious challenges and build broad-based consensus to achieve meaningful reforms for our citizens and our future," said Bush, whose brother and father both held the office of president.

Even before Obama announced his immigration order, Republican governors at a conference in Florida were debating how best to react, looking ahead to 2016.

Several potential GOP presidential candidates such as Ohio Governor John Kasich, New Jersey's Chris Christie and Wisconsin's Scott Walker warned congressional Republicans against shutting down the U.S. government in response to Obama's actions.

President Obama: Make Mitch McConnell and John Boehner's life a living hell for the next 2 years

See, here is the deal, my friends.

"President" George W. Bush was an illiterate, arrogant, silver spoon excuse for a human being.

I don't pretend for a MOMENT that President Obama reads DU.

But here's what I DO believe.

In the Six Steps Of Kevin Bacon world we live in, I ABSOLUTELY believe that SOMEONE who "briefs" the President scans DU on a regular basis.

I am not 100% happy with everything President Obama has done (or has chosen not to do) in his two terms (so far).

But just as Eric Cartman savored the delicious taste of Scott Tenorman's tears, I am THRILLED with President Obama's "KISS MY ASS" attitude toward the "demands" of the arrogant and clueless McConnell and Boehner following the November 4th elections.

HE IS STILL PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, you TOBACCO-reeking, COCAINE-dealing motherfuckers.

KEEP disrupting.

KEEP telling the American people that your ONLY goal is to FUCK Obama as BADLY as you can.

And I will THANK you for a DEMOCRATIC PARTY President at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in 2016.

Stupid fucking CLOWNS. You can stop this shit right NOW or you can enjoy the bread YOU buttered.

Just got a first look at the GOP's new Keystone marketing campaign, and I have my doubts...


"I met with him and asked him to work with me, but only if he got rid of the fucking bucket..."



I am putting together the playlist for my radio show this Saturday night and included "Machete" from Buckethead's "Colma" album. I only have two Buckethead songs, this one and "Nottingham Lace" from "Enter The Chicken," but I like both of them very much...they're in the vein of Joe Satriani.

I don't know much about the guy, other than the fact that he played with Guns 'n' Roses for a while, and recorded "Chinese Democracy" with Axl (I own that one as well).

So I went to Wikipedia, and they have an anecdote from Ozzy, who invited Buckethead to play in his band at Ozzfest, then reconsidered:

"I tried out that Buckethead guy. I met with him and asked him to work with me, but only if he got rid of the fucking bucket. So I came back a bit later, and he's wearing this green fucking Martian's-hat thing! I said, 'Look, just be yourself.' He told me his name was Brian, so I said that's what I'd call him. He says, 'No one calls me Brian except my mother.' So I said, 'Pretend I'm your mum, then!' I haven't even got out of the room and I'm already playing fucking mind games with the guy. What happens if one day he's gone and there's a note saying, 'I've been beamed up'? Don't get me wrong, he's a great player. He plays like a motherfucker."

Ozzy Osbourne, Revolver.

Do more or do less
Treehouse BBQ courts greatness ... or mediocrity
By Bryce Crawford

http://www.csindy.com/coloradosprings/treehouse-bbq-courts-greatness-or-mediocrity/Content?oid=2965523

Treehouse BBQ is in a big, white, square trailer named The Jenny after Forrest Gump, towed by a big, white Dodge pickup truck. Brothers Brady and Taylor Boll run the joint, smoking their meats with hickory pellets. The menu dabbles in more areas than the name suggests, however. And more importantly, there's a pretty big difference between the food the truck makes fresh and the frozen food it buys from the grocery store.

These words are hard to keep in mind when eating generic crinkle-cut fries, even when they're combined with truffle oil and Parmesan ($3). There's just nothing interesting about frozen French fries, and a sense of accessing adventure is part of what defines the mobile-food movement. These are even well-executed in the sense that they're crispier and with more structure than you'd expect, but the boredom persists. Punch it up.

This makes fine business sense. But some of the other items at Treehouse are so good, driven by culinary training from Brady and culinary expertise from Taylor, it's just kind of dispiriting to eat one next to the other.

For example, I'd rather see a menu full of nothing but the Turducken Egg Rolls ($7). These two babies are fat and stay crisp to the end, until you're eating triangular shard-pockets filled with juicy, chopped bites of smoked turkey, duck and chicken with shreds of cabbage and carrots and green sprouts hugging the meat. The sauce is a sexy orange-Sriracha combination that cuts the fat and balances the whole bite in citrus tang.

Even the Colorado-made jalapeño sausage ($4) and linguiça are succulent rock stars (though the yellow mustard is a bummer). And maybe you'll find you dig the simple approach. But as for me, give me a steaming bowl of gluten-free, smoked salmon and bacon mac-and-cheese ($7) or give me nothing, for we need no more of the rest.
