Our favorite two subjects:

Kitchen choreography

Robert Taylor, Contra Costa Times

San Francisco's Linda Hymes is able to court the classical without falling into a routine. As a student at the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu cooking school in London, for instance, the former ballet dancer once arranged anchovies on a dish to appear as if they were dancing. She went on to a career in the ******* and recently published her first cookbook, "The Dancing Gourmet."

"This is not 'diet food,' Hymes says. "I have diet cookbooks. I never open them."

O.k. Anchovies and dance. I'll bite.

"The fish slapping dance was in fact first invented in the form of a martial art in Alaska in about 50,000 BC. Warring tribes of Eskimos would attack one-another with frozen fish, depending upon the kind of fish, the frozen animal could inflict much pain on one's enemy, a well trained Ngaburaha (Eskimo form of Samurai), could indeed fell an untrained opponent with a simple frozen trout."

Speaking of fish slapping dances...I posted this link in another thread, I think, but this seems like an appropriate place for it as well:

I watched that one, and for some reason my sound icon has disappeared, so I watched it in silence. Yet I could hear the words perfectly in my head. I must have seen that sketch 10 ti...11, 12 times, at least.

If only conflicts in the world were settled by dancing:

Shoptalk: I'll have what he's having
Tim Nudd, Adweek

Here's how things get settled in Texas: Deli chain creates TV spot to tout sponsorship of television program. Ad agency creates similar spot for restaurant chain. Deli gets mad at restaurant. Deli challenges restaurant to a "dance-off."

It's happening right now in Austin. A Chili's ad by GSD&M looks a lot like a spot done in-house by Schlotzsky's for PBS' Austin City Limits. Both feature local musician John Pointer perform ing in a "beat-box" style. And yes, Schlotzsky's has now challenged Chili's to a dance-off. (If Chili's wins, it's "off the hook.") "We turned to dancing because it was something attorneys couldn't be involved in," Schlotzsky's president and CEO John C. Wooley tells Shoptalk.
