Geekfreak food note number 1: How to record 45 minutes of carnivorous carnage on the kitchen floor. Firstly get a laptop with a webcam download the free Gawker software, press record and start plucking. Blogged more on pheasant fiddling at Word of Mouth. Inspired by Kevin and Suw.
Not blogging this for viewing value – the videos are not that interesting of themselves – but it is interesting that some bloke took the bother to video himself eating certain foodstuffs and putting them on YouTube. Click the picture, hover over it and click on the notes. Or just go here. I wonder if he takes requests…
Is this the first? The first of many? I wonder if Bentley will be required to supply supercharged car horns to Vietnam… the one in this vid sounds a bit weedy. You got circa $200,000 spare? Maybe a Lamborghini?
"Mr Cuong ordered the car as a wedding gift for his wife, the beauty and actress Tang Thanh Ha" Ahhh… Hope she can drive…
NB: post title explanation.

I met a bunch of bloggers/planners/thinkers in London a few weeks back. When UK bloggers meet up it’s all about coffee and conversation. When I met up with Global Voices blog editors it was pasta and beer. So what happens exactly when a bunch of Hanoi bloggers get together offline? Anyone for the conga? Cheers Elmoooh via Mike. UPDATE: More on what’s goin’ on in these blogger videos from Rebecca.
I’m hearing tonnes about Jamie Oliver‘s efforts to revamp Britschool scoff, but Betty Boo‘s contribution to the school dinner debate, as can be seen in the YouTube vision above, has been overlooked for too long… OK, I know this is just a lame excuse to stick a Betty Boo vid onto my blog, but she does the do, writes the best lyrics and everythink.
