Rat ScreenRat 2Rat 3

On June 29th, Pixar and Disney premiere their newest film creating an entirely new and original world where the unthinkable combination of 5-star restaurants and rats come together for the ultimate fish-out-of-water tale.

The trailer looks great. Give it a look.

In the new animated-adventure, RATATOUILLE, a rat named Remy dreams of becoming a great French chef despite his family’s wishes and the obvious problem of being a rat in a decidedly rodent-phobic profession. When fate places Remy in the sewers of Paris, he finds himself ideally situated beneath a restaurant made famous by his culinary hero, Auguste Gusteau. Despite the apparent dangers of being an unlikely – and certainly unwanted – visitor in the kitchen of a fine French restaurant, Remy’s passion for cooking soon sets into motion a hilarious and exciting rat race that turns the culinary world of Paris upside down.

Remy finds himself torn between his calling and passion in life or returning forever to his previous existence as a rat. He learns the truth about friendship, family and having no choice but to be who he really is, a rat who wants to be a chef. Directed by Academy Award™-winning Brad Bird (“The Incredibles”) and co-directed by Academy Award™-winning Jan Pinkava (“Geri’s Game”), RATATOUILLE is slated for release on June 29, 2007. (Disney)


Carnivores Unite!

Are you lost? Do you need guidance? NAPRE (National Association for the Promotion of Responsible Eating) is an organization that’ll help you find your way…back to eating meat. If you’re a self-proclaimed vegan or vegetarian, then head over to and let your quest to find your inner meat eater begin.

James Trambino, M.S.W. is an ex-Veggie who started his Glendale-based corporation with a noble mission: transforming enfeebled vegetarians into big-swinging carnivores. His methodology is firmly rooted in “science” and relies on an escalating series of conditioning exercises, ranging from a forced broccoli pig-out, to the public renunciation of greens as “unnatural and wrong”. At the same time, Trambino works to erode meat-fear, claiming he can fully re-introduce flesh into the patient’s life within a month — first, via photos of it pink and raw, then culminating with a succulent prime rib dinner.

Though NAPRE’s success rate’s impressive, they don’t guarantee a 100% turnaround, and admit that some of his clients have relapsed into the occasional salad binge. Then again you might find a total recovery isn’t in your best interest — when your friend’s newfound predatory instincts overwhelm him and he starts to fixate on your own tasty mortality.

Dinner with the Band

Dinner with the Band

I saw this on Buzzfeed and I couldn’t figure out why this isn’t on some TV network (well at least not yet its not). Great idea, great concept and pretty entertaining.

Chef Sam Mason cooks and chats with various his favorite bands, who then perform.

Food meets punk rock. Go here to have Dinner with the Band.
