Why I love Anthony Bourdain



Its sunday night and I am currently watching my favorite episode of Anthony Bourdains show “No Reservations”. This certain episode is my favorite because it is about London and Edinburgh..I love London..everything about it..Its also the first episode of “No Reservations” I ever saw. This episode introduced me to my favorite chef Marco Pierre White, and also introduced me to food that I had never even thought of eating for example bone marrow on toast with sea salt. Before watching “No Reservations” I had always seen the commercials and just thought Anthony Bourdain a very tall, tan, old man who was sort of weird-looking, Now when I see the commercials I smile and laugh because I love Mr. Bourdain. He doesn’t hold back…at all. Anthony Bourdain says whatever pops in to his head and he doesn’t care how it will sound which makes the show completely hilarious! In one episode he was getting his hair cut on the streets and he told the barber not too short but the translation didn’t quite get through and after seeing the final result Mr. Bourdain said he looked as if he was about to get a lobotomy. Where ever he goes, no matter what happens…you laugh…the very first episode ever filmed for the show took place in paris and there is the funniest scene where Tony is tired and cold and he’s just standing there walking in a circle going “See Tony, see Tony confused, see Tony standing here”. I can’t find a clip online..but trust me it’s rather hilarious and I never get sick of seeing it. On another episode he’s sitting in a resteraunt in Germany I believe or a country near Germany where they speak german and after the waitress takes his order he says “danke” then looks at the camera and like an excited little child goes “danke means thank you in german” and just the way he says it makes you laugh your bum off. Later in the episode they go to an unknown vineyard and after interviewing the owner and tasting and then raving over the food Tony looks at the camera and says “yeah we just ruined this place” because it will soon become a top tourist destination. Bourdain also has an amazing taste in music..its fact. His favorite band is the Ramones! he sometimes wears a band t-shirt on the show and he even hangs out with Marky Ramone!! He also hangs out with Ted Nugent people!! and he’s so close with him that he calls him Uncle Ted! Label me impressed and jealous! Anthony Bourdain is just amazing, he will state his true and honest opinion on anything and he wont give a damn what you think about it, and if he doesn’t like the food he’s been given…well…he wont lie to you just because he’s on tv. In plain, I love Anthony Bourdain because he’s: honest, funny, entertaining and he’s not afraid to try new things. His show may not be for everyone but those who love his show are true fans who will stand by him till the end. :).

Thank you for reading and I hope you all have an amazing 4th of July (if you live in the states that is) if you don’t have an awesome Monday!!


At the moment..also song of the week

I’ve decided to start posting pictures that I’ve just taken and calling them at the moment. The pictures will be of anything..school notes, my pets, a book..pretty much anything im working on at the moment. This weeks “At the moment” picture is of my cat Hunter lounging on my vanity set…ladies and gentelmen…I give you Hunter..

Isnt he darling? And now, song of the week!!

I found this song while watching the amazing television show “No Reservations” the holiday special…awesome episode!! Anyways at the end Tony and his friend went to eat at a chinese food resteraunt with…wait for it…Marky Ramone (Ramone..Ramone as in The Ramones)!!! and Michale Graves! Anyways after feasting on chinese food and talking about personal tiffs with bands and Santa (yes, santa) the credits rolled and this song was played and I swooped into action on google to find it. The song I present to you readers is..”When we were Angels”!! apparently its a reworking of a Michale Graves song for Marky Ramone’s Blitzkrieg. The song is awesome!! totally upbeat, again the vocals are perfect..there gritty and wonderful and the fact that Marky is on drums makes the song even more special.

After learning the lyrics..goodluck not singing along, because at the  moment I’m singing as loud as I can with Michale 😉 and its addicting.

Now it feels like the holidays

I hope you all continue to have an awesome Monday and an awesome week!!
