Yeah, what was his sobriety course like? When did he stop drinking (if ever)? And when did he start again? Or was it more about the heroin and other hard drugs?

My understanding from his memoirs and essays is that he quit the hard stuff but never stopped drinking or smoking weed.

After he had his daughter he said he rarely ever drank and never smoked when he wasn't on the road. And I believe that. The one time my wife waited on him he had a glass of wine but that was it.

He mostly wanted to stay open to experiences abroad.

NR at El Bulli: Meh. Not a great episode. I deeply admire Jose Andreas, but I've about had my fill of his celebrity persona, and so I didn't enjoy his co-piloting of this episode; and Ferran Adrià is sort of a closed-off and enigmatic character. And I've seen so much about El Bulli in the past that there wasn't much news for me here, despite its obvious brilliance.

The more simple Catalan food looked great though, especially those prawns cooked in sea water.

Wish I had gone to El Bulli back in my peak foodie days; but now I'm not so sure I'd even go out of my way to get a reservation if they were still open. I'm way more into the simpler tapas from around the region.

It's wonderful. And since you liked that, I highly recommend Medium Raw. It's not quite as "scandalous" but the writing is so much better. He really found his voice in that book. I think it's my favorite of his non-fic/memoirs.

Not sure if this is a classic B or not, but looks like his final book will be out sometime this year.

That's fantastic. I didn't know there was a new book.

In preparation for our upcoming Vietnam trip, my wife and I have been watching all of the Bourdain Vietnam episodes over his career.

Last night we watched No Reservations S5E10 "Vietnam: There's No Place Like Home", most of which takes place in Saigon/Ho Chi Minh City.

I almost didn't make it through the whole thing. It's an amazing episode and I'm so glad I watched it. But it was emotional as fuck. He talks so much about taking year off and moving to Vietnam with his wife and child... just the way he talks about his daughter... and an old friend of his had passed away before he made it back to see her. And it was just so raw and emotional.

Both of his and Chris Cornell suicides still resonate with me.

I feel you there. Cornell was another gut punch.

Bourdain's is another level for me though. I realized last night that I'm still very much in the morning/grieving process regarding his death. Which kinda surprised me. It's never taken me this long to work through something like this. Which is crazy.

I don't think I every fully, consciously, processed the depth and breadth of his impact. Some days it almost feels like it's getting harder, not easier.

yeah, i feel ya.

I realize is like this to me too because i try to avoid watching him. I was describing his show to a friend the other day and thought fuuuuck, i really want to view a whole season of his shows.

With Chris im still baffled and angry. I really want more stuff of him, a SG album, a new Temple album.

The news of his death broke the morning after I saw the Slayer retirement tour, making one of the worst days ever follow one of the best days ever for me.

My laptop's hard drive crashed about 3 weeks ago and I lost all of his books I had saved on it. I only read Kitchen Confidential all the way though and read some of the recipes in Appetites: A Cookbook. Now I need to get all those back. I even had his weird 90's novels he was writing before Kitchen Confidential.

I've been wanting to dive into his novels.

I have no idea if they were any good. I was probably going to read Medium Raw next, but now I need to track it down. I'll probably just use my library card now, I know they have it at my local one.

Medium Raw is my favorite of his books. He really honed his voice in that book. The writing just pops.

Just saw the Nashville ep.

Beautiful. Also, Third Man Records looks amazing.
