The Week Without Poutine - February 9

Posted by Luc / February 9, 2011

20110209_mmpix_thisweek0.jpg The blogosphere was set ablaze this week when Arianna Huffington sold out to AOL. Honestly though, I could care less. When blogs become really popular, they just turn into any other news site from both a content and format point of view, and end up defeating the purpose of the blog which is being casual and informal. This happened to The Huffington Post, and also to Mashable.

Midnight Poutine however, is still down right and dirty. If you don't believe me, be sure to check out some of the ridiculous shit I've been saying in this week's You Had Me At Poutine series. And be sure to submit your best stories/tips/questions!

Also, in case you care, I did eat The Anrgy French Canadian on Superbowl Sunday. I'm still editing the video, but here's a photo to satisfy your hunger (ha...)

Ok enough of the bullshit. Here's the best posts from other blogs that aren't us:

------------------

FREE MCDONALDS BUTTERMILK BISCUITS SANDWICHES - MontrealOnTheCheap
There is no explanation necessary. This is amazing. 20110209_mmpix_thisweek3.jpg

------------------

ÊTRE UN BLOGUEUR - Branchez-vous
I'm not gonna lie - I don't really know if this site qualifies as a blog or not. But the post is very revelant to what we do here, and worth a read if you are questionning our idendity. I don't question my identity - I murder it. 20110209_mmpix_thisweek4.jpg

------------------

BRING OUT THE VEGGIE IN YOU - MontrealStateOfMind
No. This post did nothing for me. I love meat AND veggies, and most of the time I love them together. Except for when I am eating the meat salad. Monica from MSOM makes a good appeal here to why being Vegan is healthy and fun, the latter being impossible but her attempt to do so amuses me. Like the part in the trailer for Your Highness where Danny McBride is laughing at the funny faces. 20110209_mmpix_thisweek5.jpg

------------------

ORANGE CRANBERRY MUFFINS - Crazy Sweet Life
YES! YESSSSSSSSSSSS!!! Make me this immediately, long-distance girlfriend! I want them ready when I arrive to Valentine's you to death! Seriously though, when it's 10pm at night and your day was very long, reading a post about these muffins makes you kind of insane. 20110209_mmpix_thisweek6.jpg

------------------

SNOW, THE GREAT EQUALIZER - SpacingMontreal
If weather didn't change, what would we have to talk about? Likely nothing at all, especially with awkward co-workers. The snow we had this past week was pretty remarkable, and I felt obligated to include some kind of post about it. Well really, it's just a picture. 20110209_mmpix_thisweek7.jpg

------------------

FOR THE LOVER OF ART 2011 ARTISTS - YourKlosetBlogazine
If I told you I understood abstract art, there would be no greater lie. But I include some artsy posts in this column every week because I recognize culture goes beyond Insane Clown Posse's Miracles and a montage of Julianne Moore crying in various films. 20110209_mmpix_thisweek8.jpg

------------------

FIVE GUYS: BURGER HAPPINESS - FoodGuyMontreal
Food Guy posts about some burger joint I've never heard, but that Obama went to once and clearly budded the line (watch the video). Read the post for more info.

------------------

NON-POUTINE POST OF THE WEEK
EPIC - Christian Stoll Photographer
This comes from a tip from my good buddy Stats in Toronto, who posted about this insane series of futuristic photos. This makes me want the future to happen right this minute...oh wait, it just did! HOW'S THAT FOR A MINDFUCK CHRISTOPHER NOLAN?? 20110209_mmpix_thisweek9.jpg

------------------

VIDEO OF THE WEEK
Fucking insane.

Oh you have soo much to learn my little vegan apprentice! lol
If I could cook you one meal totally vegan, I am confident I could change your mind about putting fun and healthy together...like a real after school special:)
but no worries, for dessert you can have a fat ass poutine!!
