The one where I vomit for an audience

The Great Sushi Experiment


So here’s how it works in my life. I have a select few things I love. Everything else is completely off my radar. In other words, I don’t try new things. Ever.

Trying new things only leads to disappointment. Lately, however, I’ve had this crazy urge to try sushi. I tried to get some buddies to talk me off the ledge. But every one of them said to do it.

So here’s where you come in. Over the past week I’ve seen Mogulus used a few times for live internet broadcasts. I want to try it out for myself. So, assuming the technology works, I’ll be trying sushi for the first time ever (and more than likely vomiting). I’ll record it and post it to the blog in the very likely chance that no one shows up to watch live. But I’m also going to promote the heck out of it the next week and just see if it works.

Next Friday, the 11th.
2PM, central time.

The broadcast will be here.
And I’ll Twitter the whole thing which you can follow here.

Next Friday I’ll drive to HEB (where they have a fresh sushi section) and buy a variety to try. I’ll try one of each, no matter how much I hate it. I can’t stress what a big deal it is for me to try something new. It never happens. This may be a once in a lifetime event. I’ll probably never try anything new ever again after this.

Spread the word.

    as a fan of shushi, here’s to hopin’ you enjoy it!

    (this whole “live-video-blogging-reality-TV” thing is a new twist, eh?… and I can’t believe I’m gonna get sucked in…)

    I feel vaguely ill now that I’ve committed to do it.

    I’m really curious to see if anyone shows up to watch. My audience is microscopic compared with guys like Los. This is an experiment of sorts.

    I’d start with some California Rolls to prepare — really yummy and not fishy-tasting. It’s actually the only “sushi” I’ll eat, and many don’t consider it “sushi.”

    Raw fish carries health issues – don’t skimp (HEB) on price or difficult. Use your internet skills to find a reputable local merchant.

    Sushi Caliente is okay. You may like it a little better than me because the pieces of fish are a little thinner. It is also a fusion of Japanese dishes with a bit of a Mexican/Spanish flare.

    There is a place in The Railyard on 1431 that is REALLY good. I would go there. I would even go there with you to hold your hand…and some chopsticks!

    And what’s up with the new, contemplative, if not typical WordPress profile photo. I mean, it’s better than the last mugshot but “The Thinker”? Did Auguste Rodin take the picture? 🙂

    This idea seemed better last Friday. I’m committed, though.

    Not sure why I set it up for 2, though. Probably so I could eat a real lunch at 11 and have that ready to come up with the sushi.

    An alarm is set for 1:50pm on my iPhone… I’m going to live vicariously through you so I’ll never have to try sushi. Although… since Guy Kawasaki likes sushi, I’m thinking I should try to like it so I can be cool.
