1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    It's art because he doesn't understand it.
    My Dad has a bumper sticker on his guitar case that says "Just because you're misunderstood doesn't mean you're an artist." Totally random info. But there it is.

    I love parsley, though I think it works best with eggs maybe. I use chervil or chives when I have them. Thyme with chicken.

    I adore parsley in my scrambled eggs. Chives, too.

    Thanks for the reply. I'll have to use water next time, too. I think the egg was what hardened the salt so much that I needed a hammer and screwdriver to break the damn thing open.

    If that's art, and it's meant to be "understood", then it's completely coincidental. I just like making my food look pretty. If Matt thinks so or not isn't about misunderstanding it, but rather personal style and preference, which I understand.

    The comment was related to some questions he was asking in the art thread awhile ago, and was meant in jest (no WWIII)

    I know; I take no offense. I took a semester of art theory classes at Pratt, so I get the whole John Berger "ways of seeing" thing.

    Meh, I don't know how exactly you draw the distinction, or where you do. Still, that plate is not very pretty IMO, so there you go.
    I suppose the easiest way to make the distinction would be if I look at the plate and my first thought isn't "I'd eat that" but "that's pretty. don't touch it or the curator will get mad at you". The murdered fish is a good example. If someone put that in front of me my first thought would be to call the police, not think how tasty a meal it would be.

    It's a fucking piece of fish, a sauce and a few pieces of vegetable.

    I wish I could just smirk knowingly at the plebs and be unwavering in my own knowledge of The Truth And The Light as I wiped a stray droplet of Manton's cum from my upper lip.

    A bunch of cashew sandies and big glass of milk waiting for the chicken to be done.

    Then, half a 3.5 lb Keller baked chicken

    Little salty, but good umami from the protein.

    You just got done telling him to work on his plating and make it more inviting. Now it just "a fucking piece of fish"? What is this, Long John Silvers? Jesus man.

    as someone only 2 years older than mm, its a little ridiculous the threads/comments he is making recently. he strikes me as someone who has enough money to shop for a ton of nice ingredients and the time to cook them which somehow gives him the ability to make generalizations about large portions of our society. especially the women can't cook thread. its just absurd to make such a general statement about the over hundred million women in our country.

    i think your food looks decent, bro, but it looks like you are trying wayyyy too damn hard to impress people and make up for the fact that you dont really have any formal culinary training. you seem to have a chip on your shoulder and something to prove.

    Don't be so hard on him. Between his arrogance and relative closed-mindedness, he is setting himself up perfectly to become the next owner of Boulette's Larder.

    Isn't the owner the one that Matt hates with a passion?

    Yes. The lady who says things like "You are eating at the highest level" and then labels her Ras El Hanout blend with something along the lines of "Due to cultural sensitivity, please do not use this spice blend with pork."

    and she yelled at Owen the dog for eating some of her food that feel to the ground. Clearly a dog that lacks the manners of the previous generation.
