The news magazine Bacon Today is really starting to impress me. Their bacon related stories are really starting to catch my eye. When I first saw the site a few weeks ago I thought it was just going to be another blog aggregator. This is not the case; these guys are writing and finding some really great original content.
For example Mr. B, a writer for the blog, shares with us an amazing bacon recipe, Bacon Cinnamon Rolls. Itâ€™s so simple anyone can make them.
While grocery shopping the other day I picked up a tube of ready-to-cook cinnamon rolls and thought hey, I wonder how these would taste with bacon. As I read the back of the package I was reminded that the rolls are actually un-rolled when you remove them. â€“ Continue reading for the gripping conclusion.
I am so excited about this finding that I may have to stop at the store and pick up a pack of cinnamon rolls. If you donâ€™t have Bacon Today added to your must read list, add it now. I can tell already that a lot of tasty news will be coming from there.
This weekend I attend Podcamp and had a great time. I meet a lot of new faces and caught up with some old ones. Just like last year I only attended sessions, but I think next year I will work up the courage to teach one. I now have plenty of experience under my belt and after listening to the comments people had, I think I have an idea of what people want to hear.
Here are my tweets from the event, with links to their corresponding picture on flickr:
10:13 AM Oc 19th: I helped pick the name for the new burgh blog and meet a guy that loves bacon! It’s a good day at podcamp so far.
After going over my tweets I noticed that my twitter activity drop on Sunday. I think this has to do with the fact I was busy trying to network with at many people as I could this day. I find it rude to tweet in the middle of a conversation.
I cannot wait till next year and we do this all over again. Oh and next year there will be BACON (the food) for breakfast. I was really disappointed that bacon was neglected this year at Podcamp.
Last week I told you about the idea I had for Bacon Radio, a podcast about the things this blog is about. Well we just finished recording it and things got a little out of hand. My Co-Host Sean took conversations to places I never thought possible. This show contains extreme language, you have been warned.
On the show we talked about:
Mr Baconpants cooking bacon at work; Cinnamon bacon travesty; women love bacon too; no microwave bacon; Cajun bacon; new Macbooks; Sean’s hate for Apple; iPhone; fast food bacon; Eat n’ Park; Sean’s bathroom attack; what if Steve Jobs dies; bacon cooker; beer; the Sharp Edge; beer cost and taste; beer Sean likes…
There was a lot more things we talked about, but that’s all I felt like writing. I hope by next week we figure out a format and do more show prep work. If you have suggestions or topics please share via a comment!
The fine folks at Blogadilla recently reported about minor travesty they had involving the Wendyâ€™s Baconator. The photo above is from their website and it illustrates their complaint really well.
It was like when I found out that Santa Claus wasnâ€™t real.
All the ingredients were there, but they didnâ€™t look like the advertisement photos and they tasted like greasy sadness.
This is why I am still boycotting fast-food bacon, its giving good bacon a bad name. There are even people out there, like this guy, which thinks fast-food bacon is yummy. I will have to believe he has never had real bacon, because if he did, the Baconator would have been a travesty for him too.
There is a growing trend on my favorite foodie tech blog, Cooking Gadgets. I donâ€™t know why, but there seems to be a high demand for gadgets that help you manage a wine glass and a plate. They recently had a post highlighting three of these things. If you can’t manage holding a little plate and a glass of wine at the same time, maybe itâ€™s time you put the wine glass down.
The latest product to hit this fast growing market is the Clip on Wine Holder. It simply clips onto any plate and presto you have a wine holding plate. Your drunken wino friends will be amazed. You will no longer have that embarrassing, â€œWait I have to put my plate downâ€ moment again when meeting someone new at a party.
From my fellow non-wine drinking readers (I’d rather drink a nice Belgian beer) here is a product for you (us). Itâ€™s called the Wrap Nâ€™ Mat, itâ€™s an alternative to those plastic sandwich bags we all use. This thing is perfect for those BLTs you pack everyday for lunch. I also like the name, it reminds me of the time when my friend Matt tried to rap.
Simply fold around sandwiches, veggie sticks, cookies and other goodies, fold the cotton wrapper closed, secure with the Velcro closure, and food stays put. To top it off, these smart reusable sandwich wrappers unfold into placemats! The FDA approved food grade PEVA lining easily wipes clean after every use and is certified by the manufacturer to be totally lead-free.
I think the last sentence in the description is really strange. I mean, if a product is made to store food, I would hope it would be safe to assume its leadâ€“free. But then again, I am sure parents thought the same thing about toys for kids.
Tuesday night I was on Planet Comic Book Radio, with host Javier. We talked about every project I am in to, so the hour went by fast. Here is Javierâ€™s summery of the show:
This episode of PLANET COMIC BOOK RADIO is probably the most wide-ranging in terms of topics! Jason Mosley writes web-comics, hosts a podcast called TALK OBJECTIVISM, blogs about bacon, and is a creative artist from Pittsburgh. I actually was a guest, twice!, on Mosley’s radio show, mainly talking about Steve Ditko, the legendary co-creator of Spider-Man and a follower of the philosophy of Objectivism. Jason’s an engaging speaker, with a strong drive for the things he believes in. Get an Active Mind and give this episode a listening. A is A.
You can listen to the two part interview on PCBRâ€™s website: Part I and Part II
Since we are talking about radio shows I want to make an announcement, I am going to create â€œBacon Radioâ€. Just like Talk Objectivism, Bacon Radio is going to be an interactive podcast. Itâ€™s going to be about the same stuff this blog is about, but to add a little something special to it, itâ€™s going to be co-hosted by Sean Brett. Sean is the reliable bacon source I mention on this site from time to time. Bacon is just about the only thing we can agree on, everything else heâ€™s is the opposite. I feel that this is why itâ€™s going to be an interesting show.
We are going to start recording it Wednesday nights at 7pm EST. If you want to be part of bacon history, all you have to do is be at your computer by 7pm October 15th. Every Wednesday night I will post this show notes and a link to the show.
