Anthony Bourdain And The Life I Don't Lead

Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations is playing on Netflix's Instant View. I've been watching it a lot. Which begs the question I often ask: Why isn't that my life?

What's good about Anthony Bourdain is that he talks about food while talking about culture, or talks about culture while talking about food. He uses something universal -- eating -- to talk about the specifics of a culture, which is a rare talent. Also, he's pretty charming and adventurous, which is a plus. And a lot of the show is just food porn. But mainly the culture/food thing. I think that's something.

(also, have you ever googled "food porn"? You get some weird results)

Anyway, I wish I had that job, is what I'm trying to say.
