excess

Today is an awesome day. Remember that mouthwatering pizza cake by Boston Pizza that we posted about a few months ago? Of course you do, we’ve all been dreaming about it ever since. Well there must be a fairy godmother over at Pillsbury, because they just made our overindulgent dream come true. Not only did they create their own scrumptious pepperoni pizza cake, they published an easy recipe so we can all go home and make pizza cakes of our own, the sooner the better.

Click here for the complete recipe and step-by-step instructions.

Have you ever been told you’re “Too Much”? Too intense, too emotional, too personal, too wild, weird, crazy, sensitive, insatiable, not enough of one thing & too much of everything?… Good! Your too-muchness is exactly the kick the world needs to wake the hell up and be more than a shadow of better times. So don’t silence your excesses, don’t try to become less in order to fit in with the dead. Your creation will be richer, your art will have more heart, your story, more epic, thanks to your intensity.

Kitchtastic pop culture humorist Charles Phoenix (previously featured here) has promoted breakfast cereal from humdrum to awesome with the creation of this magnificently overindulgent Six-Layer Milk Soaked Cereal Cake with Frosted Flakes Frosting. Sugary cereals were a rare treat when we were little and we pretty much always want cake, so this towering fusion of the two is blowing our minds.

Here are the paired cereal and cake layer flavors from top to bottom:

  • Apple Jacks with Spice Cake
  • Trix with Blue Velvet Cake
  • Cinnamon Toast Crunch with Yellow Cake
  • Peanut Butter Crunch with Chocolate Cake
  • Froot Loops with Red Food Colored White Cake (Red Velvet Cake was not BRIGHT enough!)
  • Cocoa Puffs with White Cake

The entire thing is covered in vanilla Frosted Flakes frosting and decorate with pieces of all the cereals used in the cake’s six layers.

So much cereal. So much cake. SO much sugar. We might swoon.

You keep telling me about moderation. That a little is enough. But sometimes for some of us, a little is not enough. Because, when it comes to something like wild walks or vulnerability or truth or heart - racing conversation or ecstatic contemplation or mind bending intimacy or all that catapults us into the flow, form and timelessness of our own aliveness, I am telling you that we deserve more than moderation.

Pizza is pretty much always a good thing, but what sort of super awesome, cheese-packed, dream come true is this? Canadian pizza chain Boston Pizza recently launched a new marketing campaign, entitled “Pizza Game Changers“, for which they are asking their customers to vote on what new items they’d most like to see on their summer menu.

Their promise is “If you like it, we will make it,” and the ideas currently on the virtual ballot include pizza mints, a gas-powered pizza cutter, pizza cheese clippers, the pizza pocket, pizza car fresheners, the pizza protector, the pizza beardkin, and the glorious pizza cake pictured here.

The six-layer pizza cake is currently in the lead, so we’re hopeful that this gloriously overindulgent pizza fantasy becomes a reality.

Loners, if you catch them, are well worth the trouble. Not dulled by excess human contact, nor blasé or focused on your crotch while jabbering about themselves, loners are curious, vigilant, full of surprises. They do not cling. Separate wherever they go, awake or asleep, they shimmer with the iridescence of hidden things seldom seen.

I used to always say “you can’t expect people to treat you how you’d treat them” I think I just used that as an excuse to keep a lot of excess in my life. You should expect to be treated with kindness, respect, consideration, and actions should be motivated by good intentions.

The Department of Outrageously Overindulgent Bloody Marys just gained a new member, thanks to Sobelman’s Pub and Grill in Milwaukee, WI. This awesomely excessive Bloody Mary is called the Chicken Fried Bloody Beast. It features 13 different garnishes (cheese, sausage, pickle, olive, onion, mushroom, asparagus, scallion, shrimp, lemon, Brussels sprout, tomato, and celery), 2 baconadoes (skewers of bacon-wrapped jalapeño cheese balls), and 1 whole fried chicken.

The Chicken Fried Bloody Beast costs $50 and serves 2 to 4 people. $5 from each sale will be donated to Milwaukee’s Hunger Task Force.

It never fails. Every time the hard-working Department of Outrageously Overindulgent Bloody Marys thinks things have grown quiet enough to step out and get a bloody marys for themselves, along comes an even bigger one. Technically this monstrosity is a Bloody Caesar, a Canadian variation on the classic Bloody Mary.

It was created by the folks at Score on Davie, a bar located in Vancouver, BC. They call it the ’Checkmate Caesar’ and its gargantuan garnish features a whole roast chicken, a bacon cheeseburger, a pulled pork mac & cheese hot dog (just pause and consider this hot dog for a moment, because, wow), chicken wings, a slider, one triumphant pickle spear, roasted veggies (to make it healthy) and a whipped cream-covered brownie (for dessert).
