Monday Munchies – Wheat Thins Artisan Cheese Crackers: Vermont White Cheddar

Welcome back to yet another edition of the Monday Munchies. You’d think that since it’s the holiday season we’d be devoting this space to holiday food. Thanksgiving leftovers? Hanukkah spreads? Christmas feasts? Kwanzaa buffets? Fetsivus tv dinners? Fruitcake?


Not here at Fish & Spaghetti, where we buck the trends. This is a place where we remain true to ourselves and promise to never sell out. Unless you’ve got $2000, in which case we’d gladly hand over the Fish & Spaghetti brand in it’s entirety and throw in Chet the Intern for free.

Where were we? Oh, that’s right it’s time for Monday Munchies.

Look At This Fucking Hipster

There's nothing like a really good picture blog. Especially when it's one that makes fun of hipsters. Making fun of hipsters is one of the only reasons I still go out anymore.

Take a look at the hilarity over at Look At This Fucking Hipster, and check out hipsters wearing stupid glasses, pretentious tattoos, ridiculous mustaches and generally being douches with funy captions, videos and links.

The blog, like a few other picture blogs, is soon to be a book for some reason.

Wild Pitch Wednesday - Untitled Television Show Set in the 1990's

As an astute student of pop culture I’m always trying to stay a step ahead a of the curve. I’m telling you, I made a mint when I completely divested before the Beanie Baby and Togatchi markets crashed and I’m still spending pog money.

But sometimes to look forward, one must look back. And if history is correct, I think I may be sitting on the formula for one of the biggest shows of the next decade.

If Not For Maxim… – In-N-Out’s Secret Menu

As longtime Fish & Spaghetti readers recall, I’ve been saddled with a subscription to Maxim magazine. Maxim is easily the most embarrassing thing I get delivered to crib, and I not only subscribe to both Wizard and Toyfare, but I also get mail order lube.

But in order to make lemonade out of lemons and perhaps get a bit more “Alpha Male” personality-wise, I’ve made a concerted effort to actually read every issue of Maxim that I’ve received.

Monday Munchies – Chex Mix Teriyaki

I’ll readily admit that when I shop, I shop like I’m high. I would be lying if said that after going to the store I had a snack to foodstuffs ratio of under 2 to 1. The grocery store for me is an almost Zen like experience; I exist only in the now.

As such I end up taking risks that a normal person wouldn’t take. One of those risks was Chex Mix Teriyaki.

Remembering – The Right Click

So, this past week I became a member of the “I’m a Mac” club. Now I’m not saying that I happened upon this MacBook in a library in Charm City, but I am saying that people should be more careful with their belongings and more mindful of their surroundings.

Enough about that, my point is that for all of the awesome things that this computer can do (and it can do plenty) I miss the that warm reassurance that I found in my PC’s “right click.”

Monday Munchies – Spicy Jalapeno Fritos

In the summer of 2008 Frito Lay introduced the McGraw’s Spicy Jalapeno flavor to their Frito line of anti-health food. They joined a family that already included Nacho Cheese, Chili Cheese, Mexican Chicken and Ranch.

Yeah, it really says something about your product when a country singer’s name actually classes things up a bit.

Preview - Men of a Certain Age

So, last week in my mailbox I received an interesting package. The package was designed to look like an old cassette case, though about twice the size. Inside was a USB drive that looked like a miniature cassette tape with a sneak peek at TNT's upcoming drama, Men of a Certain Age.

I watched it and I figured that I'd share my thoughts with you.

Monday Munchies – Cheesy Cheddar BBQ Cheetos

Welcome to the inaugural edition of Monday Munchies. Monday Munchies is our vain attempt to justify the "Food/Drink" category on the blog. Basically this is where we at Fish & Spaghetti will offer up our thoughts on all things food related.

It maybe a review of a new flavor of ice cream. Or it might be our thoughts on the new burger at Wendy's. If we're really desperate for content we'll let Chet give his thoughts on the flavored lube he found on his parents dresser last week. The point is; if it goes in your mouth and we're writing about it, it'll be found here.

Unfortunately it took something horrible to make this feature see the light of day – Cheesy Cheddar BBQ Cheetos.

Twitter Tuesday: I Curse Excessively

On Saturday, someone tweeted the following...

wait, WHAT? I ranked 128th out of ALL of twitter. Now, I don't know how many people there are on Twitter, but Ashton Kutcher has about 3,981,856 followers which means that I ranked 128th out of OVER 3 million people. I know everyone on Twitter isn't following him. I'm not. While cursing is probably frowned upon and this shouldn't be something I'm proud of, the rebel in me is loving every bit of it.

Ask Frankie

I reached out to my Twitter followers for some Ask Frankie questions this week. In the future, if you guys have questions, maybe you can just send them to frankienichelle@gmail.com since retrieving the questions from Jay1 is like pulling teeth sometimes my mail gets mixed in with Jay1's subscriptions to Grape Soda Today and other things over at the Fish and Spaghetti manor.

Here we go.....

The Box: Review

Question: A stranger offers you an unassuming box with a big red button on it and tells you that if you push the button, you will recieve 1 million, tax free, american dollars in cash, but someone whom you don't know will die.

What do you do?

Answer: Push the button and hope that the person who get's 86'd is at least one of the monkeys who decided to stretch this 26 minute Twilight Zone episode into a confusing, nearly 2 hour film that will ultimately infuriate you.

Twitter Tuesday: Fuck YOUR Life.

I'm not sure what this image is trying to say, but the words EPIC FAIL appearing under a box of corn flakes seems appropriate for this post.

Twitter Tuesday: Baltimore Halloween Tweetup

I'll probably be kicking myself for this later, but I'm doing a Baltimore Halloween TweetUp next Saturday, October 31st, at the Power Plant.

Up early in the mournin(g) dressed in black...

I saw a woman I used to work with today. We were co-workers for about 3 years and then I left after getting a promotion. She remained and joined the management team shortly before her 27th birthday-now she'll be 26 forever.

People Of Walmart...

We love a good photo site, and People Of Walmart is as good as it gets. It's a funny new site that's been around for a few months and features exactly what the name says: People Of Walmart.

In all of their fat, weird, half naked, possibly derranged splendor. Click "Read More" for more pics.

The Best Show That You're Not Watching - Fringe

So, last year I convinced Jay1 to dvr a little show called Fringe.

We both promptly forgot about it.

Twitter Tuesday: Titty Tuesday

For those who don't know, every Tuesday on Twitter, there is a contest to see who has the best boobs. Tuesday is known as Titty Tuesday and it's the day to celebrate boobs on the popular networking site.
During the week I was away from Twitter, a few of my followers mentioned to the creator of Titty Tuesday that I could take the crown. I'm known for my tits and have been since I was about 11 years old. These tits have gotten me free stuff, discounts, jobs, and 97% of my friendships started because of my tits. Try as you might (in hopes of sounding like less of a perv), you will NOT prove me wrong in this theory. The roots to the majority of my friendships trace back to my breasts. It doesn't make you a tool. No worries.

In the middle of the night on Monday, I got a direct message from BlackSoap247 stating the following:

Twitter Tuesday: Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego @FrankieNichelle??

Last Tuesday, in the middle of the night, I got the bright idea to leave Twitter and write about the experience for today's Twitter Tuesday post. Almost three days into my project, I was kicking myself for not capturing it all on video. oh well, maybe next time -- actually, there won't be a next time. I'd sooner test the effects of crack on my system by sucking on a crack pipe for a week.

A Heap of Ketchup - Glee

So, Friday Jay1 and I were talking about the awesomeness that is Party Down (a show that we will really have to write about at some point) and I mentioned how the show Greek existed in the same tv universe (which, being a fan of both shows, slayed me).

Only Jay1 thought I was talking about Glee. So for a solid minute we were talking, responding and conversing, but we weren't communicating. Once we figured out that we weren't talking about the same show I said; "Yeah, I've been meaning to give Glee a try."

So I did.

I'm not sure if I should be giving my friendly advice when I'm suffering from menstrual cramps with blood spewing from my twat in a bad mood, but here it goes...

Wild Pitch Wednesday – The Scoop

Things at Stately Fish & Spaghetti Manor can get hectic. Pitches at thrown around with reckless abandon at such speeds that it's amazing no one's lost an eye yet. Seriously, it's a flurry of ideas.

Which leads us to our latest Wild Pitch. It's actually one that never made it too far. In fact it was decidedly vetoed by Jay1 who felt that Chet's rendition of "Crack a Bottle" was a better idea. And we all know how that turned out.

But let's not dwell on The Debacle, let's get to my idea.

Dear Jay-Z

So, I finally copped The Blueprint 3. It was what it was.

But that last track really stirred something inside of me. It stirred up something fierce. Fierce enough that I felt compelled to compose an open letter to Jay-Z.

Ah, I guess I can share it with y'all.

Over The Line...

It's been a very busy few weeks but Serena Williams' verbal undressing of a U.S. Open official (after calling a foot fault on her at the most crucial time of the match) and the public backlash that has followed warrants an official Fish And Spaghetti response.

More specifically, I wanted to address the comments made along the lines of those published by a 12 sandwich eating, M.J. D-riding, Kansas City based Journalist.

Twitter Tuesday: Q & A with Frankie Negron Nichelle

For some reason, whenever I’m in the shower, I come up with some pretty kick ass ideas. My idea for a restaurant that serves pancakes & cocktails called Cakes & Cocks, warming Summer’s Eve douche, and caramel peanut butter banana pudding have all stemmed from shower-time. So one day about a month ago, I was thinking of ideas for Twitter Tuesday when it hit me! I could do a twinterview with salsa sensation Frankie Negron!!

Remembering – My Moustache

Anniversaries can be difficult, especially when they mark the passing of not only time. One such anniversary is just around the corner.

You see, a little over a month ago, I trimmed my moustache.

Skip's Emmy™ Hopes

Since the Emmy's are tonight I figured I'd offer up my thoughts on some of the televised awards. I'm a dude who watches plenty of tv and I'm actually a fan of quite a few of the nominated shows.

So prepare for the best blog post on the Emmy's that you've read all year!

The Best Show That You're Not Watching - Greek

I know, I know; I'm supposed to be a television snob. I'm the guy who wrote about the criminally slept on Thief and marks Brotherhood, Breaking Bad, Huff and The Wire as some of his favorite shows. So why would I be proclaiming ABC Family's Greek as one of "the best shows that you're not watching?" Because it's actually a really good show.

And I do realized the demographic that I'm write for, so I'll give you three reasons why you should be watching show.

"C'mon, son..."

Tuesday, September 15, 2009


I don't really have any comment about Kanye and how he made a douche out of himself at the VMA's over the weekend defending the honor of his idol's wife, or how he looked like a tool when almost cried on Leno last night when he was asked about it.

I have no comment.

MTV VMA's...

The MTV Video Music Awards were on last night and (yawn) we watched them for you.

So the show starts with with Madonna pretending to be earnest about her relationship with Michael Jackson which is super awkward yet somewhat sweet, but generally lame as it's clear that she's reading a teleprompter.


Last week I brutally attacked by a mosquito. At least I think it was a mosquito, it might actually have been a school of mosquitoes. Or do mosquitoes travel in herds?

Anyway, it was painful. I was in agony. But I had to remind myself that there are things that suck worse than getting brutalized by a pride of mosquitoes. Here are three such things.

Wild Pitch Wednesday - Sexy Garage?

Ok, here's the plan; I'm writing this for the sole reason of trying to redeem the "Wild Pitch Wednesday" brand. Sure, the first time out is only referred to as "The Debacle" but there's no reason why a horrible misstep into a quagmire of misjudgment should taint an entire brand forever.

I'm going to follow the footsteps of O.J. Simpson, R. Kelly and Michael Jackson. Well, at least two thirds of them.

Caption (or just marvel at) this picture of singer Mya letting her freak flag fly in Atlantic City.

Remembering: 1055 Hillen's Pop Culture Bulletin Board

I don't really know of anyone who's a fan of gentrification. Sure, classing up a place might improve property values, but there's something to be said for homegrown ambiance. Of course living in Baltimore gentrification is just a part of everyday life.

Sadly I lost one of my minor joys to gentrification just a couple of months ago.

Kid's Clothes

Who knew that when we asked "What the hell ever happend to "Kid 'N' Play" just a few short days ago over here, that we would actually get an answer this soon.

We also couldn't have asked for a better answer either.

Twitter Tuesday: "Twusband and Twife?"

Sometimes on Twitter, two people connect out of similarities with one another, attraction, or maybe they just both happen to be up at 4am on Twitter talking to one another because the rest of the world is sleeping. Whatever the case may be, it’s usually a male and female. These people are called Twubby & Twife (Twitter Husband and Wife, get it?) Yes, I know it’s corny, but I don’t make the rules.

Pinky Ring Scale: Vol.2 Starring Ill Mondo and Neal Rames!

After This Debacle, we put Chet back on CD/DVD alphabetizing duty indefinitely.

Sometime last week he came back to the manor with my yummy lunch from Mo’s (shameless plug) and dropped a CD from Ill Mondo and Neal Rames! on my desk as well.

Neal Rames! is a white rapper. I’m not really a fan of white boys rapping. I like Cage’s Smut Peddlers stuff with Mr. Eon (Hi & Mighty), Eminem (especially The Eminem Show) and a smattering of others.

In my opinion, except the aforementioned, most white rappers have little to no flavor and their approach is so academic and sterile it turns me off. I’m also a reformed Hip-Hop snob, so all that “real Hip-Hop” stuff they often subscribe to bothers me as well. In light of that, I’ll try to remain as objective as possible- but don’t count on it.

Ask Frankie...

Welcome to the newest column here at Fish And Spaghetti where you, the readers, get to ask questions (about pretty much anything from sex, love and relationships to which dress or purse or blazer goes best with a gold tooth or the best way to find out if your mate is cheating) and we give you the answers.

And by "We" we mean our resident know-it-all Frankie Nichelle.

Kid 'N' Play, Issue #1 (review)

It occured to us that our Comic Book Section section has been neglected so we decided to go into the vast Fish And Spaghetti library.

Because we're so proud of the Fish And Spaghetti library, we were certain that any book we grabbed would be a gem so we agreed to blindly grab the first thing we saw and review it for you.

Unfortunately we grabbed Marvel Comics' Kid 'N' Play, Issue 1.

Charm City Sushi?

Every day as I'm leaving work and walking by the harbor to catch the #19 I see a sight that never ceases to amaze, startle and sicken me. That sight?

It's people fishing. In the Inner Harbor.

Let me reiterate; people are trying to catch fish that are living in the Inner Harbor.

I'll continue after you rinse that after-puke taste from your mouth.

Wild Pitch Wednesday: "Smell My Finger"

Welcome to "Wild Pitch", the newest column here at Fish And Spaghetti, where we give our intern Chet the opportunity to wow us (and you) with his wacky ideas in the hopes that we (and you) like them enough to have them become actual columns to be featured on the blog every now and then.

This week, Chet tries to talk us (and you) into buying into his absurd idea for a new bi-weekly column that HE calls "Smell My Finger".

Twitter Tuesday: "You Suck At Being Married..."

One of my Twitter followers STOLE my iPod...kinda. It all started one day when I was in my office and...

HA!!! Wait a minute! Hold the phone! Before I could get the first sentence of this blog entry typed, I received this text message from ANOTHER one of my Twitter followers:

Modern Family Review

The Fall television season is upon us. A flurry of new shows are on the horizon just waiting to be critically acclaimed or panned and canceled. It's the most wonderful time of year.

Since Chet the intern managed to score us an advanced screening of ABC's new sitcom Modern Family we figured that it's only fair that we share our thoughts on the show. After all, you should know if it's something that you want to invest in or skip. But first, how about some premise?

R Kelly & Dj Drama: The Demo Mixtape

Oh yeah checking back in with another round of that friday fuckery, live from the Chi, weighing in at 2:11am a staggering 2 months plus late, is R Kelly with his latest foray into sex music and madness with THE DEMO MIXTAPE. Why u ask? Well, because my weekend's far from over and I dont think this tape got nearly enough light.
