Nov 19th 2009 9:46AM I couldn't agree with you more. I am looking at one of Martha's cookbooks and one of Rachel's (a gift from someone who didn't know better) and it is clear that even though Martha did not receive classic training, her experience has given her skills light years beyond Rachel Rae.
I guess most people just don't know any better.
Nov 19th 2009 9:40AM If you actually read the article, what Martha says doesn't actually sound so rude as the headline makes it out to be. For anyone who knows anything about cooking, it's a clear truth.
Martha doesn't dumb things down. She shows people the right way to do things, not the easy way. Personally, I find Rachel Rae insufferably annoying.
Nov 13th 2009 4:21PM Compassion for this moron? There are families killing themselves to put food on the table for their kids, and we're supposed to feel sorry for this piece of crap? Who do you think eventually picks up the tab after this scum bag files bankruptcy? We do, my friends. He pissed through $120 million dollars. That's not irresponsible, it's criminal. Eff him and his crap movies. Raising Arizona is the only decent one.
Nov 13th 2009 12:20PM My experience with regifting was limited until recently. My future sister in law is arguably the worst gift giver ever. When her first child was born, I was extremely generous. That is, until it was my future mother in laws birthday and good ol' sister in law gave her a baby blanket and two outfits that my fiance and I had given her.
Then, last year she drew my name from a hat as the person to buy a gift for ($60 is the average and you are only buying for one person). She was talking it up for a month, how much I was going to love it, blah, blah, blah. I was horrified when I opened up the package to find a dirty, used picture frame and a set of super market champagne flutes (I don't drink). If she were strapped for cash, I'd get it, but she's a doctor and didn't have any problem prancing in in her $400 sweater that morning.
Sep 25th 2009 1:33PM I watched the split screan video in slow motion. At 10 seconds, the ball is in view and coming toward the basket. At 11 seconds, the ball disappears. At twelve, there is a ball going through the net. It's a fake. Any jerk with a crude understanding of video editing could have made this.
