Ridiculous Food Society: Now with Even More Bacon! (100th Post)
Steve Barnes over at the Times Union's Table Hopping Blog made me aware of a certain web service in his recent post entitled, "Add a Side of Bacon to Any Website." It was Bacolicio.us which is a site that allows you to baconify (if I may coin a phrase) any other website by simply typing in the full url after the site name. Pretty cool if you ask me, I think I saw this done to Reddit a while ago but didn't take the time to find out how it was done. So thanks Steve! I also went ahead and baconified Sarah Palin's Bio on her Governor of Alaska site, it seemed fitting for some reason. I just feel like she would hate having a big ol' piece of pork on her picture and this is strangely satisfying.
Incidentally, this is my 100th post! Oh how miserably fast the time goes, it really seems like only yesterday when I decided to copy my friend K8 over at Of Monkeys and Cupcakes and start a food oriented blog. I guess my blog has kind of evolved a little to include a few less recipes/reviews, and a little more of my stupid sense of humor and random gibberish. So, I decided to do a little fishing for ideas here. I think I have a pleasant little number of regular readers/commenters (I'm looking at you Albany Jane, Phairhead, metalchick666, marianne, GenkiDo, Elizabeth, llcwine, and any others I can't think of right now) and I just wanted to ask you what you think. Stop the whole bacon thing (it is kind of a tired internet meme now)? More Upstate New York recipes/restaurant/product reviews? Anything else you would like to see? I don't know why, but it kind of makes me happy to entertain people in some infinitesimal way with my blog and I wanted to consult the vox populi on how to make it better. It is a good way for me to bring some creativity and lightheartedness into my otherwise very serious life. I kind of feel sometimes like I stopped being the quirky art school dropout guy, and went through a Darth Vaderesque transformation into some kind of jackbooted, stick up the ass, servant of the dark side. This blog keeps me centered in a way. Anyways, enough babbling self analysis for the day, thank you for the thought you may or may not put into doing me this favor. I trust everyone will have a pleasant weekend!
