FCPX: Episode II: Attack of the GroansThe second episode of Filthy Cinema Perseverance X, the bad movie webseries that I co-host with my friend Adam, is now up for your viewing over on our show's new home of Blip.tv, so enjoy why not?
There Are No Words...This is going to sound a bit mean, perhaps even snobbish, and a little arrogant, but... remember that room mate of mine that I mentioned in a previous journal who clearly does not know how to cook and went about boiling a pre-cooked ham steak in a frying pan?
Well, here I am, sitting in the living room, when I noticed that he is fumbling around with something in the kitchen. I mind my own business until he comes over to me and says, I shit you not, "Do you know how to work this?" I look up to see that he is holding a can of green beans and a can opener. I said, bluntly, "You don't know how to use a can opener?"
HE DOES NOT.
I then had to show him how to use a can opener. Mind you, this kid is 20 years old. I HAD TO SHOW HIM HOW TO USE A CAN OPENER. I feel so bad. I mean, are you serious? Wow. DAMN.
Not So Iron ChefI like to cook and, even though I am on a meal plan at my college, my dorm room (which is more like an apartment) has a kitchen. I went to the doctor's recently and he told me to eat better, which means I've been avoiding the cafeteria and cooking more in my dorm room. Which kind of sucks because I spent so much money on that damn meal plan, but alas...
I've come to realize that my room mate's don't really know how to cook and, while I'm not the greatest cook in the world, I know a lot more than them at least. Considering this is the first time they've been away from home, cooking on their own, I guess I shouldn't be that surprised---but still, DAMN.
I was eating my dinner tonight, pan-fried chicken with rice and carrots, when one of my roommates was cooking. He takes a ham steak, which is already cooked, mind you, where all you have to do is heat it up and you're good. He takes a frying pan, fills it up with water, and then submerges the ham steak in the water and cooks it that way.
WHAT. THE. FUCK.
I guess I can't expect much from the same guy that only cooks frozen meals or easy mac. Damn, I am like some kind of cooking hipster elitist. I only shop at Williams Sonoma, bitch.
CosplayI've decided that I am going to cosplay at PAX East. My first time cosplaying ever. I am both nervous and excited. Especially since I am dressing up as an obscure video game character. I might hand out awards to people who know who I even am.
