Oh, I didn’t know it was *this* bad.

I foolishly hadn’t realized that there were entire blogs dedicated (such as this one, aptly named Foodspotting) to the process/hobby of taking pictures of your food.  I thought people were taking pictures of their food to then discuss the food.  How silly of me, and how… meta of them.

Some cameras, dear diners, now have a built-in “food” mode.

Alinea chef Grant Achatz, one of the nation’s most influential chefs, wrote in an online forum recently about the lengths diners will go to document their food — increasingly, with video cameras. He told of one diner whose camera was set on a tripod at the table.

Shoot your own food porn! The Sun-Times is hosting a contest: if you take really really good pictures of your own food, then you can enter to win a half-day in the studio of another food photographer, watching HIM take pictures of food!

My head hurts. I think there’s probably a have-your-cake-and-eat-it-too joke in here somewhere, but I’m missing it.

(The Cheese and Burger Society’s Uncle Sam burger)

You know how, in the middle of being really full of hate and angst about something (foodies), you find something that you actually love?  Like, I hate Julia Roberts.  And yet, I love Steel Magnolias.  Do you smell what I’m stepping in?

So, I was doing my internet duty and choosing my picks for the Webbys, when I came across an entry entitled “The Cheese and Burger Society.”  I pish-poshed, thinking it was another burger-aggrandizing site, making something so simple seem like the holy grail, etc.  I clicked on the link, and within 45 minutes, I had never craved a burger with such crazed intensity.  Each jaw-dropping, food-porny, inventive burger is described by Seinfeld’s Puddy (I do not recognize him in his latest “Rules of Engagement,” but I would like to give major props for “The Tick”) and they provide the recipes!  Not to mention the website itself is technically rad.

Damn you Cheese and Burger Society.  Damn you.
