For those who have not been reading him since day one this man is very passionate about helping people.
I will attach the link, the article does not mention his program Stirring The Pot Harlem.
The photo is harsh, but the point is a good one. It is not a lot of food.
He must be 40 something and looks good even in that harsh light.
I would love to see his balls. He has been married for years and probably doesn't do any manscaping.
That is not harsh light. I have a somewhat similar body - a little muscle definition, but a bit of chunk as well - and a candid photo of me looks terrible. This picture has light and shadows in all the right places.
I think it would be remiss not to link to how this began and maybe to the discussion where so many of you found it so easy to live on 4.50 a day
I wish I could do two links in one post....damn.
He is showing great courage. I know hope he gets booked on some of the talk shows...I would love him to demo pigs tails on Good Morning American and watch Al Roker stand by to scarf them down.
Who is this "famous chef"? I've never seen him on TOP CHEF or the Food Network....
This is a link to the discussion we had about the content vs. the Naked Body, but as long as we are discussing the naked body...
I Second your Daddy and raise you an 'I'd hit that.'
Is he married married or just married?
It is the Enquirer..you want accuracy from them?...he is famous in food bank circles for all the work he has done, but famous in the not for profit world is meaningless to the culture at large.
Hasn't Chef Karl posted here?
He did post something and used his name once....I don't remember what but I think you are right.
He said something about datalounge once on his site. He gets e mail and comments mentioning us sometimes so he has to be aware.
this is a typical gayling thread.
Be glad OP isn't talking about the ever-vexiing choice of venti or gande // nofoam double splenda or regular half-decaf...
and DONT get him started on scones!
What thread are you on R13?
Remember when that NYC chef posed for Playgirl 10 years ago? His name was John Villa. Very cute, and pretty, big suckable cock. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find any of the PG photos online.
Broadway Bares should totally get him to do a food dance thing this year. They are a non profit and would love this.
I wonder if he would do it?
My guess is yes.
I did a search for John Villa nude and got scary results, but no nudes.
Any full nudes of this guy from the photo shoot?
R17, were they of John Villa's Playgirl photoshoot? Or something else? He was very cute in that Playgirl spread, with a mouthwatering cock. See R15 link.
R16 that's all we need. Then the Broadway Bares dancers can claim they're starving themselves out of solidarity. "Oops, this latte is $4.50- I guess I can't eat anything else do today!"
Where's the cock?
No, they were not of him at all...scary results, not nude results.
John's cock or Karl's cock...or either cock?
Not to put down cock and what the discussion has become...I mean he did do a nude shot to publicize this (not his first, I took several back when he was a beautiful boy and I was a photog visiting from London)
However I am more impressed by what he has become, a food insecurity activist.
I would love to see all of us follow the links and make a donation, however small either to the funding website or via paypal at email@example.com
How many of us have said we need to teach the poor, we need to show them a better way....
Put your money where your fingers are if you have some to spare.
Added incentive for those who want the nudes....when the site reaches 150k I will share one of the nudes heretofore seen only in a gallery.
I wish R16 would take her tiresome Broadway fangurl'ness to another board, or another planet.
Not everyone needs or wants to hear about "broadway bares" in every other fucking thread, Mary.
his expression looks like he was just slapped
Maybe his wife slapped him.
Word in Harlem is that they Separated this past December after about 20 years of marriage.
Something slappable must have happened.
One on hand I totally admire what he is doing, on the other I am dying to find out why they separated, but live 4 blocks apart.
I sent him an e mail via Facebook about portioning after bariatric surgery and I got a great response along with a few recipes.
He was very nice and invited me to write again any time I had questions.
I have a friend who knows him and she says he is really tiny, like Tom Cruise short.
Turns out this Quail is a real dude and a real photographer....
I don't know that the money will ever come from DL but I would love to see the full nudes of this chef.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
