Why Anthony Bourdain is a cool dude


4189906Yes, I am an avid watcher of the Travel Channel’s: Anthony Bourdain “No Reservations”. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this show, Anthony Bourdain is a writer, chef and likes to travel. As Anthony Bourdain travels the globe, he encounters every culture and diverse eatery you could imagine, therefore, Anthony Bourdain eats well on every episode. There are several reasons why I enjoy watching Anthony Bourdain, for starters he has a laid back, chilled out demeanor about him, he always treats different cultures and people with respect, he likes all types of food and drink and narrates each episode with a tasteful and humorous dialogue. Honestly, this show is light years better than any scripted, shallow junk you may find on network television. After being a loyal viewer of Anthony Bourdain “No Reservations” for a few years, I was enlightened and thrilled by two episodes that were aired this past year. Here is the skinny on these two COOL episodes:

The first COOL episode had Anthony Bourdain meeting up with none other than – MARKY RAMONE! Anthony and Marky took a tour of the great city of Cleveland, Ohio together. Marky Ramone took Anthony to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, where Marky pointed out the RAMONES shrine, seeing the sincere look of pride on Marky’s face during this scene was for me, memorable. Marky pointed out actual concert relics of his own, that are on display. Anthony and Marky Ramone also were filmed dining out at an eatery/restaurant, listening to their conversation gave me the impression they were long lost buddies.

The second COOL episode had Anthony Bourdain meeting up with……ALICE COOPER! On this episode, Anthony’s travels had him trek through the fabulous state of Arizona. Anthony Bourdain stopped by the eatery owned by Alice Cooper, know as “Alice Coopers’town”. What a neat Heavy Metal surprise, to see a different angle of Alice Cooper, cordially welcoming Anthony to his own establishment. The conversation between these two gentlemen was very engaging, man, I wish I was the third wheel at that restaurant table! The camera spanned the interior of “Coopers’town” rather quickly, yet from what was shown, this is a Metalhead’s dream eatery to visit someday.

Now, it goes to show you, that you just never know when one of your favorite Heavy Metal or Punk Rock legends will surface on the tube! Getting to see these two music legends away from the usual concert and music video footage is so interesting. You realize that the legends of METAL and Punk Rock do live normal lives after all! Suffice to say, I hope I proved my opinion to some, if not all, that Anthony Bourdain is a cool dude.
