We're a geek culture podcast and blog covering video games, music, food and more. We are the kinds of people who evangelize whatever we are into - it could be anything - but it's usually pretty geeky. We're casual, conversational, NSFW and hopefully interesting. We hope you enjoy it.

This week's podcast sees the return of Ryan to the land of the living. He joins Jinny, Ross and I in discussing Microsoft's new Apple stores and the (actual) innovations that brings, Halo Waypoint, dead people and social networking, sous-vide cooking and Ronco-style informercials (this podcast, by the way, can be obtained for three easy payments of $19.95) and Borderlands. Oh, to have a game like Borderlands to discuss on a podcast. Oh, yes. It is That Time.

Practical Alchemy: Beer Batter Bacon Pecan Cinnamon Rolls

Bacon pecan cinnamon rolls
Nothing starts the weekend off right like a lazy, delicious brunch with some friends. This weekend I tried my hand at making bunch and served up some beer batter cinnamon rolls hiding a bounty of bacon and pecans within their sweet folds. The recipe originally came from this post on Serious Eats, and is every bit as delicious and easy as the post claims.

Click through for my take on their recipe and a few hints on making this brunchy treat come out quickly and with great deliciousness.

Practical Alchemy: Orange Rum cake

Vanilla orange rum cake
Cake! Who doesn't like cake? I mean seriously: cake! Last night I needed some cheering up and decided to make a recipe from Joy of Cooking I'd been eying for a while: the orange rum cake. While this cake may not win any beauty contests it tastes great, and is rumored to go great with a chocolate glaze.

This is a quick and easy cake to whip together in 10 minutes and is ready to eat less than an hour later. The simplicity of ingredients produce a spongy, buttery cake with the warmth of vanilla and the zesty citrus of an orange, not to mention being doused in a few shots of rich spiced rum.

Making one is easy - click through the jump below to learn how to make your own tasty orange rum cake.

Hot Dog Prints by Hawk Krall

tj_lg.jpg

Serious Eats recently ran a series called "Hot Dog of the Week" where they featured a vast and delicious-looking array of regional tube steaks. Each of these posts was accompanied by an illustration of the featured dog by Hawk Krall. Mister Hawk (or Mister Krall, as the case may be) is now selling prints of a few of the more notable depictions, including the Tiujana Dog seen above. Bacon-wrapped goodness.

Each print is 27$ (+S&H) and you can snag a selection of four for $100. Check 'em out here.

Practical Alchemy: 3 Cheese Baked Ravioli

Ravioli and cheese
Nothing says comfort food like macaroni and cheese, and boy do I like to say comfort food. The other day I tried mixing up this great classic by using fresh feta-spinach ravioli I bought at the market rather than macaroni and the results were decadent. This makes for a quick recipe as if store bought ravioli from the market are used only the white sauce must be made.

Click through for my white sauce recipe, and instructions on how to layer up your own casserole of fabulousness.

Podcast for 10.05.09 | Vapor Weasel

keepoffthegrass.jpg

It's just two old dudes reminiscing about "the good ol' days" on this week's podcast. Yup. Just me and Ross waxing nostalgic about the golden age of gaming, LIFE magazine, Monty Python, Mickey Mouse, Queen and Super Mario Bros. Ah, the memories! We also crack open the mailbag and ask the eternal question: Why are there so many people named Diego listening to the podcast?! And more. There's always so very much more.
