The Chemical Brothers released their latest amalgamation of noise today. I am so on top of things, I am listening to said amalgamation as I type! I like what I hear so far. Here is the first associated video!
Comcast is out of my life. I now have just over-the-air TV and DSL for internet. I need some video podcasts to make up for the gap of visual stimuli. Ideas are welcome. Currently I watch Diggnation and Infected off of revision 9. If I don’t get my visual stimuli soon, I may cave and get Dish Network going. Only $25 a month with no contract… after you pay for install and initial equipment.
I am going to try to eliminate fructose from my life (I expect partial failure). According to this Australian interview, fructose is the primary culprit for the obesity epidemic. Other carbs aren’t nearly as guilty as fructose. Kind of explains why I have cut down on calories, but not losing weight. I love orange juice. That, and other fruit juices, are apparently the worst thing I can consume. Might as well be drinking sugar soda. Eating fruit is okay, because dietary fiber and the fructose are in balance. A quote from the interview is quite telling,
If you look at the Atkins diet, the Atkins diet was no-carb, high-fat, and it worked. We look at the Japanese diet, high-carb, no-fat, it also worked. When you put them together you get something called McDonalds and clearly that doesn’t work.
The reason the classic Japanese high carb diet worked? Low fructose.
