That’s right kids, I’m back, and I’m eating meat. 11 months into a “practice in discipline” which included the complete exclusion of any type of meat in my diet, I finally felt content, well, my stomach wasn’t, but for me, mission accomplished. I always struggled to satisfactorily answer the question “why are you vegetarian”, it usually came out as jaded or watered down Buddhism, and ended with a sigh an explanation about my mother’s spiritual background. On the flip side, I give you my first meat ridden dish in almost a year, a plate of fried chicken. Why did I stop being vegetarian they may ask, brevity is key, “fried chicken my friend, fried chicken.” And waffles.
Oh and apparently KFC is getting all Muslim on us! A Halal KFC just opened up in Brooklyn a few months back, peep that story here.
If you don’t know, now you know, that video director, Rik Cordero has created gritty, yet, immensely artistic visuals for artists like Nas, The Roots, Wale, Busta Rhymes and many more. This Monday, MTV unveils the video for the highly-hyped collaboration between Clipse and Cam’ron “Popular Demand.” Expect some of the best cocaine metaphors colliding with some of the nastiest sex metaphors. Also, scope my story on Cordero, which I wrote about a year ago.
P.S. I’m not the PC-police but is it a little bit risky to put a plate of fried chicken in the background? Am I missing something? I realize both Popeye’s Chicken and the song title, “Popular Demand” begin with P-o-p…is that it?
