Not So Fast There, Doritos Boy...

Finally, a reason to permanently stay the fuck away from the chips, the fatty meats, all Dolly Madison products, pork rinds, Slim-Jims, the colas, the white breads, and the (non-vodka) booze...

Read here (or scan the original abstract here) and weep copious, cholesterol-free tears.

Re: Tatort / Tar Otter...

Very good piece this morning in the Times concerning Tatort, the 39-year-old (!) police procedural which airs Sunday evenings here in Deutschland. I shall always give Tatort a little bit of my time, seeing as they gave the too-frequently ignored Sam Fuller a moment of theirs. His perennially misunderstood 1973 feature, Dead Pigeon in Beethoven Street, originated as a series episode.

More info available here.

(By the way, Can provided the music for Fuller's Tatort episode. And yes, it came from a cop show...)
