from The Daily Beast article:

I worry that the lust that drove earlier generations from disco to bed seems too focused now on food, shopping (organica and leafy local greens), cooking and eating out ,and endless blogging about it. I can’t believe that anyone has the time for advanced love-making— changing the sheets, soaking in a scented bath, setting up a favorite porn film. If the newbies are born already attached to a keyboard and their parents spend those midlife-crisis years at the computer, or scouting plywood sheathing coming down on new restaurants and texting gossip to Eater and Gawker… where does erotic adventure fit in? A Yelp is not like an orgasmic moan, or maybe to some it is. As for the compulsion to Tweet. Tweeting does not lead to kissing like dancing did. Whatever became of infidelity in the afternoon—would one Tweet it afterward with a euphemism or a rating?

Originally read on Eat Me Daily.

Thanks for reminding me I need to boink more grammy Greene. I was JUST telling someone the most prolific bloggers ain’t getting laid at home. That’s why I only post 2x a week.

Here’s a video of Bourdain + Batali talking about food & boinking on Serious Eats.

Lesson today from Ms. Greene? Remember kids, food is never everything.

  • and don’t forget Chef Eric Greenspan’s infamous comment (which I love!)

    “Dude, I don’t cook for people who come and eat and go home and write on their computer. I cook for people who come and eat and go home and have sex. That’s the plan.”

  • Pam

    exactly.

    why do you think i stopped writing for over a year? busy making babies!!! (and then raising one, but OK you get the picture haha)

    Pam´s last blog post..MEOW: Kid Friendly, Palate Friendly – Tavern, Brentwood

  • This is funny because my Facebook status since last night says, “Weezer is taking a break from blogging.”

    WeezerMonkey´s last blog post..The Age of Aquarius

  • Okay for once I’m glad my firewall youtube at work doesn’t work. I do not want to hear Mario Batali even so much as mention s-e-x much less hear him possibly talk about having it. I still feel bad for Bill Buford who had to see him in his underroos.

    sook´s last blog post..mucho molto pizza pizza

  • Oh man, I think this is why Josie and I have lost our mojo. Too much great food on the brain and in the mouth. I loved when Batali said, “There are a couple of ways to make people happy by putting things in them and that is food and sex”.

    Uncouth Gourmands´s last blog post..Santa Cruz & Beyond

  • FOG

    ripped to another blog : )
