My New Addiction: "No Reservations" on the Travel Channel

Okay , this makes no sense, sick with stomach crud and what is my absolute favorite new show ? yup....a show ALL about FOOD and Travel ...which screw that NO FLY List- when Obama is President I am getting off that damn no fly list and go to these Places and make myself sick...so there.."No Reservations " has Culture and History interwoven with such humor and beautiful photography....yup, the " No Reservations " show with Chef Tony Bourdain.....Be prepared to laugh, be intrigued and disgusted and mesmerized all at once...MUST SEE TV...He takes you to places you want to go and maybe even eat...or maybe just watch others eat....Either Way he makes it exciting and interesting...

In Laos.....


In the Northwest.....

Something about the intro reminds me of Naples, FL and the coincidental release of the Dave Matthews Band song, Too Much.

hmm, I am confused...the Intro to his show? I will have to rewatch it....Dave Matthews....hmm, thank you- I will post in Weekend Music- or I might put it over at ENIGMA CAFE.....

The show's intro, shown in the second link -- where the host proclaims, "I write, I travel, I eat, and I'm hungry for more", as he wrestles with creating an original story line.

The Obsession -- with movement, new experiences, places and things.
That is more or less the theme of the Matthews song, and what I was doing at the time it was released.

Or I'm reaching... Sorry. ;-)

DrKNOW,
NOoooo , you are fine, my poor ol'brain just did not put the dots together in time---- I went and listened to the Matthews song- and THEN I got it...and understood WHAT you were talking about....and you know what they DO go together....

I LOVE the intro to his show...actually I love the show- because the idea of going to all those places and meeting people and eating....it is a Cultural Feast- not just the food either...so now I am obsessed with his show...

You are never reaching....you are Drknow- smarter than the chick by the lake ;-)

being so close to nyc- bourdain reminds me too much of the downstaters :) he's from jersey right across the river from the city. yep, nyc folks call it 'the city' like there isn't any other on the planet. the show is a good one but his 'ny attitude' rubs me wrong in places i won't mention ;) i like bizarre foods with andrew zimmern- he is a big goober :)

Betmo::
me- I am sucker for "accents" NY - love it..Brit- love it....etc etc...( I know that makes me lame...) truthfully it is MORE about the Places and the People....and being obsessed with A Project- THAT I get.....( and yeah I love watching the food- so NOW you mention Bizarre Foods- is that on the Food Network or Travel Channel?....oh geez...now I will have to go investigate....I am so hooked on these shows....I bet he goes places and eats all kinds of stuff....if he is a good story teller and funny- I will NOW be hooked on yet another show.....so thanks Betmo ;-)........I think ?

Betmo::

you should see if youtube has him eating the stinky fruit- it is the only time i have ever seen andrew gag and not eat a weird food :) he was a bigger person than i for even trying it. you should try and catch the philippines episode where he sucks really slimy looking worms out of a log :) yep- you'll be hooked. :) travel channel too.

enigma4ever said...

I will be sure to look I think.....the clip with him eating a heart out of the vending machine was pretty foul....
