Ducklings Cross Roads, They Don't Eat Pizza

Posted By on Wed, Aug 31, 2011 at 5:00 PM

Listen, I wouldn't recommend that people eat the food products of Pizza Hut, so I'm not sure how I feel about a duckling eating something from there. Is the duckling protected by some sort of inner-duck stomach enzyme? So many unanswered questions.

Speaking of ducklings, if you missed the episode of the FX show Louie entitled "Ducklings" that aired on August 25th, you need to find a way to see it. You'll have to wait until next month to watch it on Hulu, but I don't think you should wait that long. You might forget and then you'd miss out on one of the best single episodes of a television show I've ever seen. Call your friends, maybe someone still has it on their DVR. You need to see that episode.

Kim Kardashian Looking Sweaty, Singing Poorly

Posted By on Wed, Aug 31, 2011 at 4:30 PM

A whopping 55 seconds of proof that Kim Kardashian should never sing, ever has been floating around the 'net lately, much to her horror I'm sure.

I mean, I know I sure wouldn't want everyone to know what I look like after what I can only assume was a lost-battle with whoever mandated she wear spandex and have a sweaty looking ass simultaneously (soft-porners rejoice!).

I say this because no way would one would choose that for themselves, right? Say it ain't so Kim K.

The New Ryan Adams Song Is Worth Hearing

Posted By on Wed, Aug 31, 2011 at 3:00 PM

Lucky Now by ryanadams

While I was a Ryan Adams fanatic following his album Heartbreaker, grabbing bootlegs, b-sides, and whatever else I could get my hands on, over time, the pace of his career (I might be wrong, but I think Adams recently covered the first Vampire Weekend in its entirety as a series of YouTube videos recently) has been somewhat difficult to keep up with. Still, I've generally enjoyed everything I heard by the guy, even if it hasn't quite made me feel the same way Heartbreaker or the Whiskeytown catalog did.

Maybe I'm just feeling sentimental and optimistic, but based on "Lucky Now", the first single from what might be his thirteenth (?!?) studio album, Ashes & Fire, I might have to start getting obsessive again. I really, really like this song, so maybe you will too.

For the record, here's my favorite Adams song, from the album Demolition:

The Ennui of Work in Animated Film Form

Posted By on Wed, Aug 31, 2011 at 2:00 PM

I personally enjoy my job, but I know there are some of you out there who aren't so lucky. Lucky enough to have a job, sure, but crushed by the inequity of giving up your time for a paycheck. Have I got the short animated film for you! Argentinan animator Santiago Grasso's El Empleo manages to beautiful in a gloomy way, which isn't an easy task. Good luck out there, workers of the city!

Pub Grubbing: The Boondocks Lounge

Eat your huevos rancheros in the glow of neon light.
  • Eat your huevos rancheros in the glow of neon light.

The Boondocks Lounge at 3306 North First Ave. is best known for the enormous wine bottle monolith out front. It’s not as well-known for its breakfasts and burgers, but it should be.

I rolled in just after 9 a.m. on a recent morning and decided on a plate of huevos rancheros, but it was a tough choice. The breakfast menu is huge and chock full of everything from corned-beef hash to apple pancakes. There’s a nice omelet selection, too.

The kitchen — known as the Range Rider Grill — is probably best-known for the burgers topped with ingredients like peanut butter, fried eggs, feta cheese and other things usually reserved for fancier burger joints. Not that the meat loaf, salads, appetizers and other items aren't respectable, but the regulars say the burgers are best, so we're sticking with that.

Food accounts for about a fifth of the Boondocks’ sales, a stunning figure for a neighborhood bar. I sat down with owner Cathy Warner to find out how she does it.
