“basic cooking skills are a virtue... the ability to feed yourself and a few others with proficiency should be taught to every young man and woman as a fundamental skill. [it’s] as vital to growing up as learning to wipe one’s own ass, cross the street by oneself, or be trusted with money.” #anthonybourdain #quotes
I got an email saturday night that @entertainmentweekly wanting to know if i wanted to write 300 words about tony. and no big deal, they needed it early monday. as all of you know i'm a parent with 3 kids. and i really try not to work on weekends. but the opportunity to write more about tony was too important to turn down. i stayed up late and wrote it sunday night. i thought it was gonna be surrounded by other people who knew tony too. (all who knew him way better than me.) but i just picked up the magazine and it is just mine surrounded by other loving tributes to other people we lost in 2018. it is an honor to be asked to do this. and to all the people who knew tony way better than me, i hope i did okay.

Josh homme (frontman, queens of the stone age; composed the theme song for 'parts unknown'): he was such a beautiful contagion. he presented such a fascinating doorway to so many other things that aren't within your narrow doorway of what you do. when it was time to write the song for his show, he sent over [joey ramone] doing "what a wonderful world." and i said to him, "are you sure you want me to do this?" and he just said, "it is a wonderful world. isn't it?" homme: i was saying to him, "i want my daughter to do martial arts and learn to play piano." and he said, "i don't care what she does, as long as she loves it." i thought that was beautiful, because that is the right attitude for parenting. not to push—to help someone be who they already are and to help someone search hard enough to find who they could be.
