BABYMETAL return to the UK for another round of genre-bending, guitar shredding, unbridled mayhem in front of another sold-out London audience.
After I managed to dry out from the biblical downpour before the show I was afforded the chance to watch BABYMETAL, the Japanese J-pop/metal hybrid, from many vantage points on Saturday November 8 2014; high up in the balcony, the peripherals of the stage, on top of several other people after the infamous ‘wall of death’ collapsed during ‘Ijime, Dame, Zettai’ (‘No more bullying, never’ obviously) and I can honestly say with not a hint of irony, BABYMETAL smashed it this night.

So I was at work and when I was in the kitchen I saw a can of fly spray and that was kinda cool but then at the end of the ingredients I saw a QR code and I was all like “why would any one put a QR code on a can of fly spray?” and “I bet there are millions of folks downloading the QR scanner and then taking the time to scan this QR code on this can of fly spray”.

Help me come up with a neat Halloween idea food luvvers. I reckon make an entire meal from one pumpkin; we could have pumpkin soup, a delicious main, pumpkin ice cream.
Thoughts in the comments…
And I didn’t win Observer Food Monthly awards 2014. Wow. Didn’t see that one coming. So sad. Well done Jack Munroe.
I went to Marks and Spencer yesterday for a spot of lunch and bought this Deli antipasti stuff:
Most of it was OK but the olives were really weird and I felt the need to complain to M&S customer services but I couldn’t find an email for them so instead wrote to Mr Marc Boland, Chief Executive, as he was probably on the ball with this kind of stuff.
Subject: Bitter olives
I was in one of your shops in Glasgow and I bought a packet of antipasti olives and they were really bitter and I was all like “by Mark’s and Spencer’s unusually high standards, these olives are very poor”. So I thought that you, being Chief Executive, would like to hear about my experience.
When I went back to the office, I wasn’t sure if it was just me being all hyper sensitive because I’m a world class food blogger, so I gave one to my boss, Dave, who’s face contorted into a painful mass of anger, fear, confusion and revulsion. I asked if I could take a picture so you could see just how bitter the olives were but he wouldn’t let me.
Instead I got him to draw a picture of himself being all repulsed by the olive menace:
“I haven’t tasted anything this bitter since Paul Gascoine scored that jammy goal against us at Wembley”
I think this is a very important matter to draw to your attention; as a loyal customer of the salad bar section I admire your impeccable attention to detail and fine taste in dressings (not dresses, oh Mark! haha, lol)
Any feedback in this matter and a refund of the £2 I paid for the item would be great.
Right food fans, they’re having an office bake-in (or bake-off, I dunno which) next week and I need ideas for what to bake and feed my colleagues. Must be edible, interesting and not likely to get me fired.
ps, have some er, very colourful music from Japan that isn’t Babymetal
I was watching some TV program where they were making pizzas and I got really hungry and thought to myself “I’m going to make a pizza”. So I totally did! Read the rest of this entry
So I was down in London recently and I got pretty drunk on the train because it was super delayed as usual and when I arrived I had missed the last tube. I figured the best course of action would be to hire a Boris bike and cycle the 5 miles to where I was staying.
Hiring a Boris bike is retarded. It should be a case of enter credit card > pay > get bike. But it’s not. When I put in my card and paid money for 24 hour access it didn’t tell me what to do next and it was only until some Spanish tourist (the fcking irony) came up to me and said that I had to put in my card again and get an access code.
Why couldn’t I get the access code in the first place? What utter knobjockey figured that this wasn’t a good idea when I made the payment. I mean, what do you think I’m going to do? Go up to a bike hire stand, pay for bike hire and then just f*cking walk away? Morons.
Anyway, I hired the bike and was surprised at how light the gears were and the fact that I couldn’t go faster than about 15mph on account of my drunken legs spinning out at 100rpm.
So Boris bikes suck.
Food blogging on the way once I figure out what to cook. I’m running out of ideas; maybe you could go to my revamped twitter account and suggest something?
So I was wandering around the local park and I took this amazing picture of some leaves and was all teary eyed thinking about the beauty of nature and how wonderful things are. And it got me thinking: nature’s larder is at its most stunning during this incredible season!

So I was down my local convenience store and saw these and was super happy because they were only 59p and I was all like “well for 59p for a packet of Pringles Cheesy Onion you can’t really complain”. Read the rest of this entry
