Didja know Metafilter's own hermitosis has been writing articles for AMC's website (mostly in the MonsterFest blog)? Hey check it out, it's ColdChef! (With awesome photo)

Some other recent gems (though not so Metafilter related) - hermitosis asks Bruce LaBruce "Exactly how gay IS this zombie movie?" Answer: "It's pretty gay."

Plus, a tender examination of Selma Hayek's facial hair.

This just in: "Awesome!"

If I squint my eyes, it looks like Coldchef's wearing a very small tie...

Go, hermitosis! Thanks for pointing it out, nanojath.

Who took the photo, ColdChef? I wuv it.

I think I would like Coldchef to undertake me, when the time comes. Do you do outcalls?
posted by stavrosthewonderchicken at 1:22 AM on January 16, 2008


That should be ColdChef's profile picture. Heck, I would support mathowie letting that photo appear beside every post ColdChef makes. Maybe with a cute little word balloon coming away from it.

Very spiffy.

Nice.

That's really cool, hermi.. but couldn't you do better than Bruce LaBruce? He's such a pretentious git it makes my teeth hurt. Christ, even Sky Gilbert is less annoying.

Awesome. Congrats hermitosis!!!

The Chef is looking sharp, but this is the shot that should be laser-etched into his tombstone.

Thanks for posting this nanojath! I was unsure if posting the ColdChef piece myself would be okay.

It's too bad they didn't use all of his answers; the piece was trimmed down considerably in the end. But that's how these things work, I guess. Originally I linked to his photoset of memorials, too. I'll be lucky if the rest of my interviewees are anywhere near as helpful and interesting as ColdChef.

...but couldn't you do better than Bruce LaBruce?

Hey, I just go where the zombies are :)

Congratulations hermitosis (I am an AMC addict!), and smart move interviewing the handsome and suave and always fascinating ColdChef. If anyone reading this hasn't heard the Mefi podcast that featured him stop whatever you're doing and just listen. In my experience it and a light box and a little daily exercise are a fail-safe remedy for seasonal affect disorder.

Don't be fooled. He's shifty, that ColdChef. he mailed me narcotics paraphenalia once.

This is so many layers of awesome. Bonus awesomeness if you've heard the podcast interview with CC and can read his answers in his fantastic accent.

Holy crap, very cool hermitosis!

I felt that way about the MeFi podcast. Luckily I was wrong.

Me too.

And I used it.

Me too, and I shared mine!

Congrats, herm!

Dang it, I always get left off the narcotics paraphernalia list. I bet you guys all went to the planetarium without me, too. I love the planetarium and narcotics too you know. Stop bruising my feelings.

ColdChef sent me a copy of Brill's Content. Was I supposed to smoke it?

Yay! I love AMC!

Very nice. Congrats to both of you.

Paraphernalia? What paraphernalia?

Two of my favorite dudes, making good at LAST.

That's not the only ColdChef interview on the web. This one, by Cowboy Sally, lacks the great photo, but is sexier - including my favorite quote:

"The joke around our house is that the men can do our wives' hair and makeup for them, but only if they lie down and close their eyes."

From tizzie's link:

... a friend who works as an undertaker-cum-"catch-all" at his family's funeral home.

Man, undertaking is a way different job than I always thought.

"I pin all the pallbearers..."
Like wrestling or butterfly collections?

Thanks again, hermitosis! A few years back I was interviewed by TCM about the original version of "The Long Hot Summer."

Remember, if you work for a cable movie channel and you need bland and non-offensive opinions, I'm always available and my rates are reasonable.

Yep. I knew hermie before he was cool.

Wait. Are you cool yet?
posted by The Deej at 4:01 PM on January 16, 2008


AMC? Aww I thought he was writing for All My Children! Tease.

how does one undertake cum?
posted by matteo at 7:40 PM on January 16, 2008


First figure out how to overtake it. Then just do the opposite.
