The Brilliance!


We’re really internet and we’re really back. A website about things Benjamin , Chuck , Virgil , and various friends & guests think are interesting. Little-to-no specific focus, a bit odd, speling errors, and incredibly culturally relevant.

Edamame… If you don’t know, you better ask somebody.

$1.99 can instantly bring you into the ‘cool’ crowd. That may not hold true for everyone, some of you are just hopeless. Edamame is a raw soy bean harvested at the peak of ripening that is one of the best tasting side-dishes I have had in the longest. I started eating it like a year ago (I know I’m late) and I have pretty much devoured a bag or two a weak since then. Here’s whats good: $1.99 for a 1 pound bag, throw half a bag in boiling pot of your choice (Williams-Sonoma, step your pot game up!), fill with water so the beans are submerged, add a bit of salt, bring to a boil, strain the beans, throw them in/on a bowl/plate, splrinkle some sea-salt… Eat them… You know hjow you pull a jolly-rancher out of its wrapper with you teeth? Same way you eat edamame, except you look WAY more important. Bring your girl back to the condo (your dorm room), serve some steaming edamame, email THE BRILLIANCE with the results… Drop-drop-drop it like it’s hot!
