Alton Brown, Disk Jockey?
Wednesday, June 18, 2008 | posted by Mike

We love Alton Brown.

We love his cooking, we love his nerdy take on food science and we love his general attitude.

But the thing we really love about Alton Brown is the fact that he's got something interesting to say pretty much every time he opens his mouth. So it's no surprise to see him put something out there that has nothing to do with food.

And so, we were delighted when we took a spin by his site and saw that Alton has contributed an iTunes Playlist...basically a celebrity-created list of songs that you can, if you wish, purchase from iTunes. You can check out his list and comments on each track on his home page or click here to go directly to the list in iTunes. (You need iTunes installed for that second link, obviously.)

And you should check out his list -- it's very good. Of course, I'd be remiss if I didn't offer some thoughts on his choices.

(Hey, if you think I'm an opinionated know-it-all about food TV, you should know that it actually runs a distant fourth to sports, politics and rock music from about 1964-1985.)
There you have it...my commentary on Alton's commentary on someone else's music. How "meta" can you get in one post?
