Every now and again, something comes along that can’t really be proven if it’s true or not, because it exists on a plane of absolute absurdism. Case in point: Crèm-brû-log.
Now, normally, if I were to tell you about a blog devoted solely to the distinct, creamy pleasure of Crème brûlé, you would scoff and say, what’s so special about that? But if I told you the same blog was penned from My Morning Jacket’s Jim James and his Monsters of Folk bandmate M. Ward, well then, you would scratch your head and go, that’s interesting.
Here’s how it works (you’ll have to excuse their grammar):
Each brulee reviewed will recieve a certain amount of “logs.” think of these logs as “stars,” “points,” or “thumbs” in other reviews you may read. for instance “joe so and so gave this new film 4 stars.” there is no finite number to the ammount of logs that can be given, with infinite logs being the highest rating possible.
-here at cremebrulog we want to give our readers a voice too, therefor the ammount of logs can be subdivided, added to, or subtracted from by readers until the end of time, or the internet, whichever happens first. at that point god hisself will do the math to determine the true winner of all time creme brulee championship 96! for example:
1.lets say m. ward reviews a brulee and gives it 135700655789 logs. then lets say some reader disagree’s and decides they want to subtract 27638490 logs from m’s review. the log score would then be 135673017299. but if the reader agreed with m’s review they could add logs as well, thus making it a higher overall log score.
2.this will go on thruout the ages- until the end of time, or the end of the internet, whichever should happen first.
3.THEN as the world is ending god will tally up the total points- thus giving us the true champion brulee of all time!
Yes, apparently, the rock icons have started a blog about Crème brûlé. So far, the duo have only penned a handful of reviews. Now, there’s nothing to verify if this is true or not, but, word of this new endeavor spread from the My Morning Jacket twitter account.
It could just be that someone tipped off Jim James about the blog and he thought it was funny enough that someone would start a Crème brûlé blog under the auspices of M. Ward and Jim James as the authors. Or it could be legit. Either way, I’m going to lose sleep until I know for sure.
I’m leaning towards it being a hoax, but there’s a part of my heart and stomach that loves the image of M. Ward and Jim James out on tour hitting restaurants to try the Crème brûlé and share their thoughts about the dessert with the world. [via dailyswarm]
