JC from Boston (who finds much of the content on this blog "austere") writes that "Jonathan Richman's "Double Chocolate Malted" may be an antidote. (Note: since original post date, the audio file got lost, but you can buy JR's whole awesome cd here).

About Jonathan Richman's foodie bent, Sarah Vowell at salon.com wrote:
There is one rocker who . . . once sang that he frequents bakeries because of "a lack of sweetness in my life," loves a "late-night falafel stand" and titled his greatest ode to chowing down "I Eat With Gusto, Damn! You Bet." He's Jonathan Richman, and he sings from the bottom of his heart about his bottomless stomach. As the greatest culinary composer, he has the keenest insight into why there aren't more songs at table. In "Affection," he mumbles, "You know your friend Jonathan likes to eat food a lot ... but affection is the most important thing for me."
