Coldplay is worst thing to happen to music, and Gwyneth is worst thing to happen to food; maybe that’s why they hooked up

There was this one time, that saint Gwyneth made everyone throw up, and shockingly, it wasn’t from the overwhelming nauseous feeling they got from hearing Gwyneth Paltrow talk about how perfect Gwyneth Paltrow is all evening.

"Mortdecai" Los Angeles premiere***NO DAILY MAIL SALES***It was from food!

That’s right, famous cookbook author Gwyneth Paltrow admitted on The Rachael Ray Show (via Glamour) Friday morning that she once made a meal that made everyone fill the 17th century gilded French porcelain toilets in her home with hot barf. Now, I’ve read both of Goopy’s cookbooks, and I’d say that roughly 79% of what I saw gave me the heaves (so many vegetables and not ONE recipe for Frito Pie). But according to Goopy, it wasn’t because she was serving her guests some kind of disgusting pickled heirloom kholrabi over mashed sunchoke bullshit; it was because she screwed up the recipe for eggplant parmesan.What do you think?

“I went to the store and bought some eggplant, a jar of tomato sauce, and some really rubbery mozzarella cheese. I didn’t know that when you cook eggplant, you first have to sweat it to get all the bitter juice out, and I didn’t realize that you also have to bread eggplant parmesan and fry it before. So I put slices of raw eggplant with jarred tomato sauce and mozzarella. And everyone threw up.”

Mick Fleetwood barfs, cutting concert short

Midway through Fleetwood Mac’s Pinnacle Bank Arena concert Saturday night, in Lincoln, Nebraska, drummer Mick Fleetwood suddenly became ill.

mick-fleetwood1“Mick is really sick,” Stevie Nicks told the crowd, adding that Fleetwood was backstage throwing up. “We feel terrible, but we can’t really make him play. Give us a minute, and we’ll figure out what to do.”

That turned out to be playing two more songs.

A drum tech named Steve took over Fleetwood’s kit for “Go Your Own Way,” which is usually the song the band plays before two encores.

Then, after a short break, Christine McVie returned to the stage at a grand piano, playing and singing “Songbird” accompanied by guitarist Lindsey Buckingham.

“Poor old Mick is really sick,” McVie said. “I sing this for him and for all of you.”

“Songbird” has been the final song on the band’s “On With the Show” tour, usually capping a 2½ hour show. Saturday’s truncated set ran just over 90 minutes.

Say Anything lead singer pukes on stage on unluckiest security guard ever

TMZ reports that the Lead singer of Say Anything hurled on stage Monday night … soaking a security guard in vomit.

say.anything.barfLead singer Max Bemis was towards the end of the set at the House of Blues in West Hollywood when he projectile vomited without warning. It’s unclear why … but there was alcohol on stage so it ain’t that hard to read between the lines.

Bemis didn’t miss a beat, and continued singing “I Want to Know Your Plans.” As for the security guard … well it definitely ruined his night.

Sometimes being close to the stage is overrated (There was this one time at a Who concert in Toronto in 1979, when me and my friend Dave decided we were too close to the stage by all the idiots around us, and the only way to get out was for me to roll my eyes into the back of my head, and Dave dragged me out, yelling, OD, OD. It worked.)

Televised medical talk shows—they’re just BS

I’ve written before about how I was unceremoniously relegated to the cheap seats because I wouldn’t go along with the story line on Dr. Oz a couple of years ago; it wasn’t factual and they weren’t interested in facts.

powell.costa.dr.oz.09Now, researchers report in the British Medical Journal that TV talk shows like Dr. Oz and The Doctors are full of it at least 50 per cent of the time.

Objective To determine the quality of health recommendations and claims made on popular medical talk shows.

Design Prospective observational study.

Setting Mainstream television media.

Sources Internationally syndicated medical television talk shows that air daily (The Dr Oz Show and The Doctors).

Interventions Investigators randomly selected 40 episodes of each of The Dr Oz Show and The Doctors from early 2013 and identified and evaluated all recommendations made on each program. A group of experienced evidence reviewers independently searched for, and evaluated as a team, evidence to support 80 randomly selected recommendations from each show.

Main outcomes measures Percentage of recommendations that are supported by evidence as determined by a team of experienced evidence reviewers. Secondary outcomes included topics discussed, the number of recommendations made on the shows, and the types and details of recommendations that were made.

Results We could find at least a case study or better evidence to support 54% (95% confidence interval 47% to 62%) of the 160 recommendations (80 from each show). For recommendations in The Dr Oz Show, evidence supported 46%, contradicted 15%, and was not found for 39%. For recommendations in The Doctors, evidence supported 63%, contradicted 14%, and was not found for 24%. Believable or somewhat believable evidence supported 33% of the recommendations on The Dr Oz Show and 53% on The Doctors. On average, The Dr Oz Show had 12 recommendations per episode and The Doctors 11. The most common recommendation category on The Dr Oz Show was dietary advice (39%) and on The Doctors was to consult a healthcare provider (18%). A specific benefit was described for 43% and 41% of the recommendations made on the shows respectively. The magnitude of benefit was described for 17% of the recommendations on The Dr Oz Show and 11% on The Doctors. Disclosure of potential conflicts of interest accompanied 0.4% of recommendations.

Conclusions Recommendations made on medical talk shows often lack adequate information on specific benefits or the magnitude of the effects of these benefits. Approximately half of the recommendations have either no evidence or are contradicted by the best available evidence. Potential conflicts of interest are rarely addressed. The public should be skeptical about recommendations made on medical talk shows.

Harry Styles explains roadside barfing

I don’t care about the music of Harry Styles or One Direction, but the pin-up has a novel explanation for barfing in California a couple of weeks ago:

Harry Styles.vomit I’d been on a hike. I’d been on a very long hike. It was about three weeks ago, so I’m fine now.”

After snaps of the singer’s messy incident were released, one devotee decided to create a shrine to Styles in order to commemorate the place he vomited in with a banner that read: “Harry Styles threw-up here 10-12-14″.

Another dedicated fan reportedly scooped up his vomit and sold it online.

Alberta E. coli recall now includes frozen pork spring rolls, pork buns and pork wontons

But what is E. coli O157:H7 doing in pork?

Vinh Fat Food Products is voluntarily recalling frozen pork spring rolls, pork buns and pork wontons as part of larger recall of Alberta pork products.

Vinh Fat Food ProductsThe recall was prompted by concerns of E. coli contamination and comes after other raw pork products from two other Alberta companies were pulled from the marketplace.

​​The following frozen pork products have been sold exclusively from Vinh Fat Food Products, which is located at 10630 97th Street in Edmonton.

  • Pork spring rolls sold between July 10 and Sept. 5 inclusively.
  • Pork buns sold between July 10 and Sept. 5 inclusively.
  • Pork wontons sold between July 10 and Sept. 5 inclusively.

This recall was triggered by the E. coli outbreak investigation led by Alberta Health Services and supported by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).

Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.

Veg growers slam Woolies’ Jamie Oliver fee in Australia, as they should

Maybe celebtard chef Jamie Oliver has some sort of chromosomal disorder: regardless, he knows shit about food safety and freely admits he doesn’t read.

Jamie OliverSo why Woolworths would hire him to be their spokesthingy in Australia is beyond baffling.

Ausveg says growers have received requests from Woolworths to voluntarily pay a charge towards the costs of the new “Jamie’s Garden” promotion, equal to 40 cents a crate of produce sold to the supermarket.

While Woolworths says the request is voluntary, Ausveg national marketing manager Simon Coburn says growers are not in a position to say no.

“The growers feel like they are in a position that, if they were to say no, they are worried that their contracts would be reduced or terminated completely,” Mr Coburn said.

He said growers already paid a charge of 2.5 per cent to five per cent of their sales back to Woolworths to cover marketing costs, and the 40-cent charge was in addition to that.

The cost would range from a few thousand dollars to $250,000 for a grower, depending on the size of their contract, he said.

“Some are telling us they don’t have 40 cents left in their margins,” Mr Coburn said.

Woolworths said it was disappointed Ausveg and Senator Xenophon had not contacted the supermarket before going public.

And Greek yogurt giant Chobani says there’s no science in their yogurt; just mold that causes recalls.

Hamptons residents not pleased: Hep A restaurant offers to host Kardashians

Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian have found a site for their Dash store in The Hamptons.

Restauranteur Irma Herzog – whose Driver’s Seat Restaurant was investigated last year after an employee was diagnosed with hepatitis A – has risked the wrath of local residents in Southampton by “betraying” the upmarket village and leasing an art gallery space adjacent to her eatery to the sisters, who are planning to spend the summer in the resort for new reality show ‘Kourtney & Khloe Take The Hamptons’.

Kourtney-and-Khloe-Take-The-HamptonsOne outraged source told the New York Post newspaper: “Southamptonites are abuzz that Irma Herzog has betrayed their village . . . Will Irma also be bringing back another bout of hepatitis?

“Now she brings trash to her backyard. People are lining up to buy Irma’s property and get her out of town. She is a piranha.” 

Real Housewives of New York dogs drink too

In the latest episode of the Real Housewives of New York, Ramona is having a calendar shoot with her dog when Sonja shows up for a chat with her pup. The four are seated on an elegant couch when the guest doggy gets thirsty. Sonja, without missing a beat, offers her pooch her water glass and tells him kindly it is too early for champagne.

RHONY-dog RHONY-Ramona RHONY-Sonja

Ramona, polite but taken aback says, “I have water right in the kitchen. You know, I hope you’re not going to drink from that after.”

Sonja replies distracted, “I miss Milou so much but this dog is just…” and sighs.

And then Sonja takes a drink from the same glass.

Perhaps she learned her etiquette from Real Housewife of Beverly Hills, Lisa.
