Across the table Mr. Hutchings gnawed on a rat bone, pronouncing it delicious. The dinner delivered on its once-in-a-lifetime promise. “I don’t care about it as art,” he said. “I care about it as something that makes me a more interesting human being.”

For Ms. Ginn skinning and eating rats represents the survivalist instincts she likes to explore in her work. “To have these sorts of skills, it’s very empowering,” she said. “It makes me feel like I have more control over my world.”

It reminds me a bit of the Woman Warrior ( Maxine Kingston) description of the narrator's mother as a Great Eater, one who could literally and figuratively eat any dish set before her without the slightest expression of fear or disgust. But in a setting of extreme comfort, and the best condiments and disguises for the purchased rats, it doesn't seem to signify anything. Now, if all the rats had been "wild raised" in NYC and caught by the participants, that would be a better story... Or perhaps if different rats had been trapped in different restaurants, again, we could compare the effects of different restaurant fare on their taste.... Overall, ick.

How is this any different from the sensationalism of TV Shows like Fear Factor. Rats are disgusting and only eaten in the worst of times. They are in fact disease ridden and thoroughly disgusting. Why does this generation insist on destroying paradigms or structures without any sensible or tangible replacements. Did they learn nothing from the Baby Boomers and the "Me" generation? I hate everything about this from it's pettiness to its barbarism to the sensationalistic and cynical nature of it. Rich people eating rats. Rich indeed.

This can be seen as the expected result of the gentrification of New York that has been occurring for the past 20 years or so. Rats, formerly associated with urban squalor, became reified as a kind of aesthetic signifier of "authentic" New York-ness by the post-collegiate hordes of mostly white middle class young people who flocked to places like Williamsburg in the late 90s and early 2000s. These people were ravenous for real urban life, and embraced the rat as a component of a lifestyle they sought - even as their (the gentrifiers) increasing presence destroyed that same reality by displacing working class residents and communities that had been associated with the presence of rats during the Reagan era of urban decline. This event combines the role that art plays in the gentrification process with the gentrifiers obsession with "local" food culture in an ironic glorification of their (Pyrrhic) conquest of the "urban."

hey, in the interest of fair play, i read that article about the girl tavi who had the fashion blog and now has the rookie site and she seems cool and her site looks great and smart.

don't want to hate every young person in the new york times. makes me feel bad.

"in the spirit of sassy magazine" is always a good move. plus, john waters loves her and that's good enough for me.

3. Change that number to something smaller and you will be jumped back to an earlier point in the thread without loading the whole thing.

@man alive yeah he says that she makes 3 things that they consume over 5 dinners a week. it seemed like he has two kids but tbh im not going to bother reading it to double check. but $15 a person per meal while high isnt outrageous esp considering how much it would cost him to eat out even two nights a week instead. honestly with the exception of his mortgage none of his consumption patterns seem unreasonable mostly he just seems mentally ill.

Like I said it seems like a reasonable price for a personal chef probably, but if 'personal chef' even appears as a line item in your budget or even hypothetical possible budget, you are well off, and talking to anybody about supposedly recent 'paycheck to paycheck' living is NAGL to an extent that it just conveys an incredible and hilarious lack of self awareness

This is a good point actually. Usually the very rich people you hear about complaining about not being rich don't have that much money saved and do live in a ridiculous house that eats up all their money. This guy isn't really saying "I make $570K but I can't afford to send my kids to college," it's more like "I make $570K and I can afford to send my kids to college but somehow I stay up all night worrying that I can't."

I have a couple of friends that aren't in personal chef territory, but he graduated college late (40s) and immediately got hired as a senior accountant with some kind of energy firm - with her teacher salary, they're now in the 140-150k range which is a very healthy living down here. They've got a weekly housekeeping service, yard guy and then the absolute weirdest thing is that they just hired another friend to be their laundry lady. She's a stay at home mom and they pay her to wash everything/press shirts/etc. because laundry was sooooo time-consuming. I take a handful of shirts to the cleaner because I can't iron to save my life, but it's really that tough to wash your damn underwear? You throw it in, then go do something else for 45 minutes, toss it in the dryer, do something else for 30 minutes, then toss that shit in your drawer. As it is they still have to drop it off, pick it up and put it away.

milo man I've had a load of wet laundry in the washer for three days because I haven't had time to fold the clothes in the dryer so I would probably hire somebody to do our laundry if we could afford it. Before we had an apartment with a washer/dryer we'd use the drop off service at the laundromat with some frequency which is kind of the same.
