1. Kenji demonstrates a quicker method for caramelizing onions. The slow process usually turns me off from making any recipe involving caramelized onions. Now, I might give this a whirl.
2. Love this interview between Alan Sepinwall and comedian Louis CK. Here he is about drunken Sarah Palin tweets:
You’re writing something that a quarter of a million people are getting it instantly. More personally and directly than they do a TV show that’s on in a corner of the bedroom. It’s like I called them on the phone and said that Sarah Palin has Chinese people living in her cunt, you know? So that context has caught up with me a little bit. Like, this is not what I thought it was when I was doing it, and so it’s not that I’m afraid of her. By the way, I said something that I think is true, I wrote one Twitter that I said, please find me a picture of Sarah Palin with more than one black person because I couldn’t find one. And then she went to Haiti a week later. She threw together a trip to Haiti. So I believe I made that happen. So that’s positive.
3. Kanye has a new album (aside from the one with Jay-Z) coming out this year. From Stereogum: “Also according to West’s Twitter stream, his production will be more complex on both Watch The Throne and the solo record — at least that’s what he’s implying with Tweets like “THIS IS HIGH END RAP MUSIC” and “I just threw some bassoon on this muthafucka.” West also says the video for “All Of The Lights” should be out next week. Who said “You should always leave them wanting more?” Not West. Definitely not West.”
“I just threw some bassoon on this muthafucka” should definitely be 2011’s I drink your milkshake.
4. This is a great fanmade TMNT prequel of sorts, titled “Fight the Foot” [via]
5. “Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura sued the Department of Homeland Security and the Transportation Security Administration on Monday, alleging full-body scans and pat-downs at airport checkpoints violate his right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures. Ventura is asking a federal judge in Minnesota to issue an injunction ordering officials to stop subjecting him to “warrantless and suspicionless” scans and body searches.” [via]
