Deadliest Catch – Down to the Wire

by Mikey

We are in the final week of the king crab season and the boats are all scrambling to make their quotas before the market prices drop too low.  The Time Bandit finished up last week, meeting their quota.  The rest of the fleet has one last week to get on the crab.

Deadliest Catch – Deadline

by Mikey

So with the absence of Hells Kitchen and Brian’s new devotion to teaching the homeless how to make origami swans, I have now taken over the Deadliest Catch report.  Sorry (mommom1) your attempts to have me banned from writing have only worked in Tularosa, New Mexico and don’t get a big head, they just went along with you because I once said Tularosa smells like mayonnaise.  On to Deadliest Catch!

This episode labeled “Deadline” marks the last few days of king crab season. Up next is the Opilio season, which is an awesome time to watch this show.  If you missed the first part of the season it’s a great time to jump on.

Deadliest Catch and the King Crab

by Brian

So last night’s episode was a bit of a filler, but Mikey gave me such a hard time for breezing through the review last week that I feel like I owe you something half-way decent.  Here goes…

We left off last week with Capt. Keith of the Wizard having his 18 million ton boat come crashing down on his head whilst trying to fix the damn thing.  Honestly, isn’t this something you pay someone else to do?  It’s called delegating.  Learn it, use it, love it.  Continue reading

Deadliest Catch and the Deep Blue Sea

by Brian

Tonight, Mikey and I are premiering a new weekly column for the site.  With Hell’s Kitchen winding down (thank god) we are proactively filling the void with a show that’s actually worth watching: Deadliest Catch.  This weekly column will probably go up on Wednesdays, but because I was retarded and forgot to tivo the 1st episode, I had to wait until tonight to watch the rerun.  Each week, it is my hope that we can not only give a little commentary on the show, but also a review on the culinary bounty that is the ocean.  First the show, then the review… enjoy!

Duke’s Canoe Club and our 50th post.

by Brian

So today is the big 5-0.  Mikey and I are all growns up.  In fact, it was Mikey who brought this milestone to my attention.  I would have held off on celebrating until 100, but I just didn’t have the heart to shoot him down.  He suggested we do something special and I suggested we pay a visit to one of the best seafood restaurants in Malibu.

Since we are both a little light on lunch money these days, we decided to hit up the barefoot bar section of Duke’s for a late lunch/early dinner.  By the way, on Fridays they serve $4 Mai Tais all night long.  Too bad Mikey and I don’t drink like girls, it would have been a hell of a lot cheaper… Continue reading

Camarillo’s Sumo Sushi

by Mikey

Sumo seems to be a popular name for Sushi places. I found that the Sumo in Camarillo and the Sumo in Ventura are completely separate joints. Which pretty much means there is a good Sumo and a bad Sumo. Unfortunately for Camarillo they have the bad Sumo.
