    For those of you who have never seen it, Eat, Drink Man, Woman is an incredible film. I didn’t realize it was Ang Lee’s debut until I read the film series descriptions, but it is one of my all-time favorite films. Just don’t go unless you’re completely full – and trust me, you’ll still leave salivating.

    Ben Kwller has an album titled Sha Sha and Sly & The Family Stone’s “Everyday People” has a line that goes, “Ooh, sha sha… we’ve got to live together!”

    lol. I didn’t know anything about the movie, so that was all the summary I could muster without doing some research.
