Some days I am so inundated with pointless information, I can’t stand the idea of dealing with any more “media,” never mind contributing to it. But then I fall in looooove with the Internet. Again.
My latest crush: Slashfood. First of all, you obviously have to love it just for its name. What happens when a site gets Slashfooded? (Food fight!) Thankfully, as its name implies, it’s also loaded with food-lover news, tips, rants, comments, even food porn (think up-close-and-personal food photos and written slobbering over a dish or ingredient). The posters aren’t snotty, they don’t spoil the fun with half-baked humor, and they genuinely love food.
Plus I find things like the Nordljus food-photography blog, which puts my whole relationship with food to shame (or at least my sad, sad attempts to cook and/or photograph it). Not that I need another blog in my life, but when a site makes me shout HOLY CRAP at my computer, I figure I’ll make an exception. Those pictures are fucking beautiful.
