check this out mateys! last week the lovely ladies in the office had their umbrellas out coz ya boy was cooking up a storm! ooweee. i went for that good ole artery clogging island favourite for my dish: Taro and Corned beef. it was a bit of a risk coz i knew most of the gals at nzgirl would probably not have tried this before, and taro is definitely an aquired taste. but with a few gormet modifications *cough cough* the shit went down a treat! nah mean nah mean?

jacked from the website.

Mareko's Corned Beef and Taro
Time to Prepare: The cooking time was mainly upped by the taro which took 20 minutes to boil. Any other preparation could be done within that time, so all around a quick dish to whip up!

The $$$: This is a very inexpensive and economical dish - we were able to feed the entire office, 12 people! All up it cost just under $30, which works out to be a measly $2.50 per serve!

Taste Rating: After being informed that generally taro doesn’t go down too well for first timers, we were all pleasantly surprised with what turned out to be a pretty scrummy dish (scratch those rumours of taro being yucky!). The fact we all went back for seconds speaks for itself!

Sheek Louch - "Good Love"

You know i got a soft spot for that east-coast-boom-bap-sample-based-street shit. remember when you would eagerly anticipate the release of an artist, get it the day it was released, play that shit in the car, at home, to your boys or where ever for like a year straight til you knew every aspect of that record? aaaah the good ole days. Sheek Louches "Silverback Gorilla" wasnt one of them, but it sure did come close. heres some flash back shit!

Suge Knight Bodied

saw this on Cant bully people all ya life Mr. Knight. SoooWooooop!

Suge was at Shag nightclub when he began arguing with a man he had been talking with. Our spy overheard Suge say, "I want my money!" Suge and his peeps beat the guy to the ground, but the man landed a right hook on Suge's face, knocking him out for around three minutes.

We obtained these photos of a bloody Suge just after the incident.

Suge was taken to the hospital where LAPD officers arrived, but he refused to file a report.
