  1. What Pattinson has trouble with? It's called acting.

  2. Auditions are horrible things. Still not an RPatz fan, but he is 100% correct about that.

  3. Yes to Cricket Flour. I would definitely go for it.

    I was exposed to that sort of idea early at the Montreal Insectorium; they were always cooking things up the few times I visited and had things to buy and eat as well. The food was good.
    I don't see why not. Especially if it's healthy, easy, and sustainable.

  4. Pattinson punching himself in the face?

    I insist that he goes to more auditions then.

  5. I doubt RP will even need to audition for a role until his looks fade. He could retire now on his riches as well.

    I don't think it's that easy to scale up production of cricket flour to the several millions of tons needed to make a dent in other protein sources. How do you harvest them, for one thing?

  6. I can't with eating insects yet. Maybe in a bit, when reason sets in, but right now..Oh hell no.

  7. I believe Towleroad should have gone with the story about how Chris Christie’s attorneys fees are going to cost New Jersey taxpayers $6.5 million, not him dancing.

  8. nowhere in the cricket stuff did it mention the grains they are fed with are organic or non gmo

    I suspect that information is purposely left out

    Organic meat would thus beat the crickets for less impact

  9. my mistake

    the article does say they are organic grains

  10. Mike for the win. Well said!

  11. Nice to see the fiercely heterosexual Queen Latifah enjoying a fiercely heterosexual vacation with her lady-friend.
