VIDEO: DJ Chose featuring MC Beezy’s “Everywhere I Go”

He may sound like he raps with too much cottonballs in his mouth but some will immediately tell me “PUNK, THAT’S AN OHIO STYLE, DON’T SHOW NO DISRESPECT TO MY MAN, MY MAN!” and I’ll tell you that I am not, I am not doing this. What I want to tell you about is DJ Chose and how he did a song with MC Beeze and together, they came up with “Everywhere I Go” and if everywhere you go, he’s there, then can’t you see that he is driving you insane. If so, step out of the way.

If you’ve been looking for something from Australia that’ll sweep you off your feet, enough to say “I haven’t heard something like this in awhile”, then The Lockhearts may be your while. Their video may be somewhat on the suggestive side but they did it perhaps to lure people to watch as a way to truly listen, so this is your chance to put those senses to good use. The group’s single is called “Low” and how low do things get? It depends how low you are or where you want to be. Again: suggestive but not explicit. Prepare yourself.

BOOK’S FOODIE: Fletcher’s Sauce Co’s Gourmet Hot Sauce (review)

 photo Fletchers_label_zpsvl8x6apd.jpg This one was a hot sauce found at my local supermarket, it’s from a store (Yoke’s) that often has a good share of sauces I like, be it hot or BBQ sauce. This hot sauce was from the city of Mead, Washington that is north of Spokane, si I thought it would be great to try out this regional sauce.

It’s made by Fletcher’s Sauce Co., the mascot of which is a cowboy with a hat and his eyes not visible. He’s a slick cowboy so I thought hmmm, maybe this sauce will be as slick as the man in front. The label says it is a “gourmet” hot sauce and that I should “taste the difference. Perhaps the influx of different ingredients should have been some kind of clue, with things like sodium bisulfite, potassium sorbate, and tricalcium phosphate. Or that TOMATO JUICE (in all capital letters) was the third primary ingredient. It doesn’t even list what specific peppers they use, it just says “chili”. You mean with beans or without? Help me, folks.

Let me get to the point. I tried it and I wondered “where’s the heat?” There was a little bit of it there but it came off as if heat was not a factor. Those who may not like a hot of hot sauces or heat in their food would really like this but it came off like I was having a mild picante sauce. In fact, I tried it with a tortilla chip and it is suitable there but in terms of heat, it almost seemed more like a ketchup. Ina Garten is a chef who, in an episode of her TV show, said if you wanted something spicy, add ketchup and I said “wait a minute, ketchup is spicy?” If you think ketchup is spicy, maybe you’ll like Fletch’er’s Sauce Co’s hot sauce and nothing hotter. The company also makes barbeque sauce, three different varieites to choose from and I would think those would be quite good but as for their hot sauce, it’s more like lame sauce. In other words, it’s a nice and pleasant sauce but that’s it. Nothing more and nothing less, just “eh”.
