These are really good in congee. This isn't fear factor shit, this is food people actually eat in the world. Maybe not apprehensive white people, but you know, real people.
Can we have a tag for self-posted videos?
I suggest: "Blowing one's own horn"
John Holmes Motherfucker
Something shorter, perhaps? It would be nice to be able to find all self-submits at once.
how about if we just use 'century egg'?
poetv original is the tag for user made videos.
infinite zest made it up!
Seconded on the tasty. In congee or sliced up as an appetizer, it's all good.
Im so tempted to one star everything about this video and thread.
You can't one-star everything, Gmork.
You are only one neckbeard.

Six stars for a genuinely charming and funny low-key presense,
minus one for making me retch violently.

I made a cartoon today, too, but apparently there are rules.
I don't think there are rules.. can't remember who it was but s/he was linking cute cat and dog compilations back to his channel, compilations that weren't her/his, with his/her watermark at the bottom.
That's not cool, but OZ posting awesomely obscure and wonderfully fucked up shit that goes to his channel? That's awesome. Same with Self-subs. The "breaking anonymity" is up to the user. I for one still write on poe's facebook (oh yeah, when I met TFL Bill? I never saw him again) and that pretty much breaks character unless you use your username on facebook and no pictures for whatever reason.
I think it'd only become a problem if it was sort of a constant self-promition: I'm currently finishing up the second season of a TV show, and when we finish filming the pilot (after the apocalypse at this point) I might submit it saying it's something I've been working on. But I wouldn't submit every subsequent episode on here, but link to the channel.
As I see it you could still submit every episode. It still has to make it through the Hopper...
IZ, I will mail you a crisp, new, scentful bill if you never use "s/he" again. Think about it. Offer expires at never.

Context? Do you enjoy other oddly preserved objects? Post a snail mail address and I'll send you some pickled garlic.
But for today! Oh glorious Day, for the strawberries are ripe and I have enough rhubarb from futzing with the plants to produce a 9" tart. Cooked rhubarb, sugar, cornstarch, and some loose strawbs. for about 5 minutes, then poured into a freshly baked 9" sweet cookie dough tart crust. You make that with pwd sugar,flour and butter. Top with fresh cut strawberries. When cold, I whipped some heavy cream,sugar,vanilla and plated the monster with a healthy dollop per slice.
Sweet baby jesus. Like shooting heroin directly into your eyesockets. Partner sez "Hey how about that tart" and we start and pretty soon it's 6 oclock on the old tart and it's suggested we stash the thing before it's midnight and goodnight and gone.
You can't imagine how unpleasant rhubarb tastes; my sister in law won't touch the stuff. But when you make it right, it's like something from another world entirely.
As for context, an old roommate went to Hong Kong, and I asked for something from Hong Kong Disneyland's Haunted Mansion, and got a box of crazy preserved meats and a century egg. The meats were all actually pretty good, but the video would've been about 15 minutes long.

Pussy. 5 stars for not being able to eat something pretty standard.
Why not try some Balut, or Virgin boy eggs?
In truth, I'll only eat century eggs in congee/soup, and would never touch Balut or VBE... but please do try the those anyway and video tape.
Balut and Virgin Boy eggs are for pansy girl boys.
Kiviak, Surstr÷mming, and Casu Marzu are where it's at
In my country, we only eat Robo Cat Barf on new years, and we like it that way!
I ate a McChicken once.

And now, for an encore, Cognitive Dissonance PROVES he is the filthiest person alive! What you're about to see is a REAL THING...

I was once given one by this Chinese girl at a dinner party, and I thought I would be polite and try to choke it down. I will never forget that taste. I had to eat two of them. Ok, I have to stop thinking about it now, because I'm getting nauseous just remembering.
Whaaaaa? Century/millennium eggs are the tits!
Jet Bin Fever
They taste like crap, man. She wouldn't explain what they are. I just thought they were jelly in the shape of eggs at the time. Little did I know.
Sulfur. I'm sensitive to it, and I can't fathom eating ordinary hard boiled eggs much less a century egg. Do you smoke heavily, IZ? Or did you just get burned on your century egg...
Jet Bin Fever
He's from Portland. Pretty sure his tastes in most things are ruined from that fact alone.
The weirdest flavor I ever tried was the boiled, juiced San Pedro cactus (which contains Mescaline). It was a blend of horrible and delicious, like burning tire rubber mixed with sweet burning chemicals. For many months afterwards I would get a shiver up my spine just remembering the taste.
I hate hate hate deviled eggs, and eggs in general kind of gross me out, so the millennium egg was kind of a "will he eat it" sort of thing, like eating Fish Row or Tako for the first time at a sushi restaurant.
To non vegetarians out there, have you ever tried a Scotch Egg? Because if not, do and thank me later. I tried to make my own using Tofurky sausage as a casing but can only imagine how good the original is.
And yes, I live in Portland, Oregon, home of "None of the best food I've ever had." Best Pizza = Due's in Chicago. Best Perogies = Polish Falcons in Milwaukee. Best Mexican = Connejito's place in Milwaukee.. I could go on. There may be a shit ton of food carts and options in every direction here, all tasty, but nothing mind-blowing. Except for that Millennium egg.
Actually the best Scotch Egg I ever had was made with bacon rather than sausage, sort of wrapped around and then rolled in almonds instead of bread crumbs.
"Best Mexican = Connejito's place in Milwaukee."
Even if this was the only Mexican food I'd ever had, it would be in last place. Don't even sound right.

So that's what you look like? I always wonder what the Poetv regulars look like. Very interesting.
|StanleyPain - 2014-06-19 |
I have nothing against POETVers submitting their own videos (except of course click-bait ad revenue bullshit stolen from other people *cough*mihaifrancu*cough*), but man don't ruin your digestive system for our benefit.
It was a "gift". I felt I had to do this. Plus I learned that being in front of the camera is not for me.
