Now we are cooking with goth


Dlisted comment suggests some alarm at Christina Ricci's slim-line look. I am much more concerned at Angelina Jolie's increasingly skeletal appearance and notice I have yet to see the subject taken up by the popular press. Frankly, both look as though they could use some home cooking; I would be delighted to oblige. Cooking with your Favourite Goth: Goth or Not Goth?* ** Bonus quatloos for anyone who can spell her first name.

Related: Writing for Instapundit, Megan McArdle points out the obvious; a fact nevertheless lost on so many. Starbucks coffee is burned and, I would add, unappetitlich.

Anyone drinking burned Starbucks on the assumption that the smoky flavour must mean it carries a real kick--not so, not so. Char grilling is for steaks, not Arabica beans.

* The answer is slightly more obvious in Cooking with your Favourite Goth Part 2.
** Not to be confused with Cooking With a Goth, Goth Chef or my favourite, Dark Kitchen Today; which are all goth, obviously. As is The Gothic Gourmet which features curling.

Starbuck's coffee turned me off from drinking coffee for pretty much the rest of my days. OK, I exaggerate, but that stuff is incredibly vile.

One of the most important advantages of returning to Canada was returning to Tim Horton's coffee.

Christina Ricci looks pretty good. My big concern is not how she lost some surplus pounds, but how she managed to mysteriously lose the fivehead (or in her case, eighthead).

This is an excellent question. I expect in smoke and mirrors we may find the key.

Angelina's looking dangerously frail, but Christina just keeps looking better and better. It's an evolution that's been going on for years now, and I see no reason to interfere with the process.

And Your Favourite Goth's first name is "Angharad," which I believe is "Darahgna" (the contributor of the clip) spelled forwards. Always thought that was a cool name.

One thousand quatloos for the name!

Goth, methinks. With a bit of Asian flair.

Christina started out goth - it seems to flow naturally.

Starbucks coffee - Not Goth.

But their Angharad blend is fabulous.

Blah... Starbucks is swill. And what people don't know is that heat kills caffeine. So, roast your coffee until its charcoal like Starbucks, and you get much less kick than a nice light roast. Expresso has the least caffeine content, even a triple shot usually has less than a normal cup of McDonald's joe...
