Honolulu Grub Club Blog Paradigm Shift

Dear HGC Members and Blog Readers,

I have some blog-altering news to share with you. It has dawned upon me the more and more that I have written posts for this blog the more it has begun to sound more like me (Refridgeraider). More like me in terms of interests, opinions, and tone of the posts.

However, this blog is not really about me, as I have my own blog (One More Plate). Basically, by sharing some many infographics and geeky references the Honolulu Grub Club Blog is sort of like that famous historical quote about the Holy Roman Empire (that it was not really “holy,” nor “Roman”, and not much of an “empire”). The HGC Blog has now become not really about Honolulu, not grubby, and nor much about the Club.

This is the picture I am using for this post as it was one of the first images to pop up on google search from "paradigm shift food" and I'm too lazy to photoshop or do a hard search for something more appropriate.

While I enjoy sharing Trivia Pursuit-worthy information with all of you I’d like for the sake of continuing interest in and the perpetuity of the club make a paradigm shift (OMG he used the title of the post in the post!). From now on all those funny pictures, interesting bits of info, and dorky references will reside on my blog, One More Plate.

On the HGC blog the posts will be more about the members, the HGC eating events, dining and food in Honolulu and Hawaii. However, rest assured that my need to share pointless trivia and dorky quotes will shine through now and then. I urge you all to subscribe to this blog (as well as my and other HGC member blogs) to continue to get updates.

So starting Thursday because I actually have some real work to do Wednesday you will see fun, weird, dorky food posts on my blog and real Honolulu or Grub Club-related info here.

Thanks, and I’ll see you all on One More Plate.

P.S. The picture is a nifty tool called the “Diagnostic Kitchen” it basically will scan the food you eat and tell you how it will affect your body. Ok this is the last dorky piece of information that I am going to share here . . . for real!

Geek Food

Do the mushrooms in the Mushroom Kingdom really look that tasty?

So part of the reason I was MIA for the past two weeks of July was because I was following all the updates from Comic-Con. Comic-Con is no longer just about comics and the masses of unwashed dorks that attend. It now has become a mecca for all things related to dorkdom.

Any chance that I can connect food and dorky goodness I’m all for. So when I came across this post in LA Weekly I’d thought I’d share it with you all. In the post it lists the top 5 absurd foods that were being marketed to dorks at Comic-Con.

So here are Emma Courtland’s picks with my comments on these dorky foodbits:

1. Zombie Blood – right here this is already absurd . . . zombies are dead already, and their blood is coagulated they are either moving due to biological or mystical means, but they aren’t running on their blood . . . anyway, not sure if I dig a green drink from med pac.

2. Gamer Grub – I’ll admit I like to snack on salty, unhealthy food from time to time, but this stuff looks like it is geared to kids who are given controllers before they are able to talk so mom and dad can play the World of Warcraft.

3. Super Mario Snerdles Candied Fruit Stripes – uh, what is a snerdle? Anyway, with so many choking hazards who wants to get this other than a Super Mario collecting nut.

4. Mana Energy Potion – ok, I’ll admit it, if this stuff taste like Powerade or Gatorade I might drink it for exercising or energy . . . or a marathon session of gaming.

5. Zombie Flesh Jerky – and we are back to zombies again, I love the undead genre, but like anything overdosing on it is just dangerous . . . then, again zombies never die . . . I’d probably try a bite.

And if you weren't sick of me shoving zombie-related stuff on a food blog here is a zombie food pyramid!
