Inhuman Eating Machine #12 (TORTAS) has finally posted. TELL EVERYBODY!

The world famous Tiger Lily Chou videotaped this session. A YouTube video companion piece for this session will post as soon as she's done editing.

I'm very bummed to be missing GF6. This is the first one I won't be attending, except for #1. For everybody lucky enough to be there, here's the IEM Memphis BBQ session.

Before retiring to my chambers, I stepped onto the scale. Wearing the same clothes as during the morning weigh-in, the scale registered 191.4 lbs. I had gained more than eight pounds in one day of eating, even after taking one and a half dumps.

you're better than jesus.

This is really long but I had to repost. The beauty I experienced reading this made me shed a small tear....

Both Man v. Food and Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations recently did shows in San Francisco. Of course, they both went to the Mission District for Mexican food. M v. F went to La Cumbre. This spot claims to be the birthplace of the "Mission-style burrito." This variety has come to be what most Americans think of when they think of a burrito. Dear readers, if you're somebody who wants to get all of his daily calories from a single meal, I can understand why you would want one of these burritos. All that rice and beans inside a massive tortilla is bound to satiate most people's hunger for several hours. And if you're a vegetarian, that wad of starch is a suitable stand-in for actual food. It provides a cheap, filling meal free of meat (and flavor). I understand why you would eat these things. I was a vegetarian for many years and understand making rationalizations for mediocre food. If you don't belong to either of the above demographics, you really should look into ordering something other than a burrito when you go to a taqueria. First and foremost, eat tacos. Placing a little seasoned meat on small double-stacked corn tortillas and topping them with onions, salsa, and cilantro is pure genius. You can taste everything, as there isn't a big load of rice and gooey crema canceling out the things that matter. Granted, sometimes you don't want to have to buy several tacos to fill up and would prefer to order a single item to fill the bill. On these occasions, get a torta and leave the rice-filled burritos to children, derelicts, vegetarians, and other people who don't know any better. The torta adds many of the same delicious components of the burrito, but the rice is omitted. Because of the lack of rice and since everything is on a roll, rather than wrapped in a flour tortilla the size of a tire, the flavors are able to shine through. If you MUST eat a burrito, do yourself a favor and get it without rice and without crema. A burrito with only meat, salsa, beans, and onions is a far more flavorful option. And if you really like Mexican/Spanish rice and crema, eat the stuff as a side order by itself. You'll be stupefied by how great these foods can taste when they're not served out of a tube like Chicano astronaut food.

Here's the video companion for Inhuman Eating Machine #12.
NOTHING is left to the imagination. It was filmed and edited by the reknown "Tiger" Lily Chou (with assistance from the legendary Canderson.)
