If you're a fan of the Buckto (I'm not), some pioneering shit went down in my house a long time ago: upon parking the bottle, fire a couple of crushed Rennie tablets in, apparently works a treat with the heartburn. Bit of a Jackmaster cocktail that one.

Might not help with the alkaseltzer vibes though.

Not strictly drunk food, I eat this on near everything, but does anyone know if there's a difference between:

and

The chinese supermarket near me only ever has the former, but the latter seems to be more popular (it has a Facebook fanpage. This defines popularity). US / UK thing? Or do they taste totally different?

Edit: still on the buckfast tip, most pioneering move I've seen was a certain DJ (who will remain nameless) who fell asleep at an after-party at Gordon's, then woke up about noonish to find everyone else refreshed by an early morning booze run, and was rapidly convinced to have a bucky for breakfast. Can't really imagine anything worse tbh.

yes the one with the chicken is the original i think. 2 brothers escaped Cambodia (or was it Vietnam?) on boats with zero in their pockets and made it to the US. now their hot sauce is in almost every city in the world. it is pretty different from Chinese hot sauces... sweeter. haven't tasted the one with flying bird logo.

pho is the best drunk food in the world which is not only fucking great at the moment, but also feels good in the belly after - i remember the first sip of the broth i could feel the pho molecules starting to fight the gin/vodka/rum/whiskey molecules in my body, and winning every time - so amazing at 4AM when you are tired but wired, depleted of everything. you should consider yourself blessed to live in ottawa, because there is not a single pho place in all of Berlin. decent vietnamese, sure, but real pho is no where to be found.

thinking about this and other culinary deficiencies here is almost enough to make me want to leave.

God damn now I really want some pho.

Mmm...if you're ever in London be sure to check out that half-mile-odd stretch of Kingsland Road just going out of Shoreditch - probably half or more of the businesses on it are cheap but decent Vietnamese restaurants.

Reading an extremely grotqesue and vivid description of death through eating eels in 'The Tin Drum', I'm well put off ever trying eels.

new documentary on the topic of disappearing fish

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QWB8KJ1aIJ4&feature=player_embedded

what my friend said about it:

Saw this film last night & it is truly a must-see. 90% of the big fish in the world's oceans are gone! Largely due to our all-powerful & merciless bottom of the ocean scraping technology.

there was something in the film about China hugely over-reporting their catch numbers for many years, which made it look like there were plenty of fish left to catch. (communist party officials)

the reality is their catch numbers have been going down the whole time... which dramatically effects the total world picture. in the film they point out that it's pointless to quibble over 80%/90% anyway... the effect on the ecosystems in our ocean is catastrophic. the vast nets the industry uses are almost completely indiscriminate, especially when bottom-trawling. they pick up coral, turtles, whales, dolphins... & everything that's not the target catch is thrown back over the side of the boat, dead. reduced to mere 'commodities', like so many other living things nowadays.

vast stretches of the ocean are "plowed" 7 times a year or so... leaving very little life able to rebuild in their wake. finally, when the huge corporate boats plunder marine life in this way, it leaves increasingly little for small fishing communities in 'developing nations' to catch & sustain themselves with. anyway... the film's stock footage of so many delicate, fascinating ocean creatures living their lives, often in families, is so beautiful... it's especially heartbreaking to think of them being so brutally, wantonly, & systematically destroyed in this way. ...
