I m feeling under the weather today quite literally, for I have finally succumbed to the haze. It is Haze 1 – 0 RealGunners.
Actually, that’s not exactly true. This isn’t the first time I fall sick due to shit weather. If we want to be accurate, it is probably more like Haze 50 – 0 RealGunners. Or Haze 100 – 0 RealGunners.
I know, you’re probably going to tell me to drink more water, get more rest, yadda yadda… the thing is, I have been drinking LOTS of water and getting 8 hours sleep a day, every day. I guess sometimes you just can’t win and the body needs to fall sick as sort of a detox mechanism. I believe the side effects of falling sick are actually the body’s way of drastically releasing all those bad stuff out.
Anyway, the point is, I don’t feel like writing much today. So I’ll just share some videos to you guys.
You might think that my inspiration in home cooking comes mostly from FoodTube, from Jamie Oliver and his team. And, I know, I mostly try to cook healthy meals most of the time, but the truth is, the first bunch of cooking videos that made me feel excited about cooking are Epic Meal Time videos. I think I have mentioned this cooking show a few times before in my other blog posts, but today I am going to write exclusively about them.
For those of you who do not know what the heck Epic Meal Time is, it is basically a Canadian Youtube cooking channel hosted by the epic douchebag Harley Morenstein (an ex-high school teacher) and his friends. The show focuses on creating extremely high calorie meals that would make Man vs Food look like child play.
By the way, it’s 1st of July in Canada now. Happy Canada Day to all the Canadians out there… 😉
Bacon strips and Jack Daniels whiskey are featured prominently in their recipes, and vegetables are religiously scorned upon.
And when meal is done, they eat it in very manly ways…
This is NOT a cooking show for vegans and health conscious people.
I know, most of you would go “Ew! Gross!!!” when you see how they cook, but come on, I believe it is 99% of guys’ (and probably some girls) ultimate dream to be able to feast on the stuff that they cook with reckless abandon. But we know we can’t, so watching some Canadian jackasses do it is the next best thing.
Well, here’s a list of my absolute favorites, the best of the best of Epic Meal Time videos based on my personal preference, in no particular order. I placed the one where they did a collaboration (sort of) with Jamie Oliver on top, because I think if it is the first time you watch these guys, you need to transition into it to minimize the shock.
Okay… if you feel 6 videos are too many, just watch the first 3. They’re probably the 3 I like slightly more, just slightly…
The truth is, I’m sick, so I’m eating bland and tasteless rice noodles soup for dinner tonight. I’m watching these videos and imagining myself to be eating bacon burgers instead to make the ordeal less of an ordeal…
