It's Friday night and we're feeling a little "off topic" right now, so let's take a sharp turn from our regularly scheduled video game conversation and discuss other nerdy delights: film, music, comics, science, food, whatever you choose.
Me? I'm going to talk about food for a minute, which may be the new rule: Friday night is food night at Kotaku Off Topic. Any objections? Good! Because I've got a serious hankering for some injera and other Ethiopian delights. If you've never had it, it comes highly recommended, as Ethiopian (and Eritrean) foodstuffs are incredibly tasty. Great vegetarian options, but also my first experimentation with steak tartar and these folks make a mean lamb. Rarely have I eaten to the point of near-bursting as I have at Ethiopian joints.
Sadly—sort of—I think I'll be eating some homemade risotto tonight. Feel free to share with us your foody thoughts or provide alternate topics of discussion in the comments below. Here are a couple conversation starting freebies.
- The business of remaking foreign-language films in English - People don't go to the movies to read! Those Oldboy and Let The Right One In remakes will be hard to watch.
- Do we have our big screen Captain America now? - Like Iron Man, my general disinterest in the character will hopefully make for a more enjoyable movie with lower expectations than, say, Spider-Man.
- Jon Stewart doing his best Glenn Beck - I miss the Daily Show on Hulu.
