Nacho Cheese Test Lab #2

Test suggestion by: Amu H. Email us a story.

TestlabIf you’re like us, you’ve spent countless nights laying awake thinking about if there are other applications nacho cheese is suitable for aside from consumption. It was that singular introspection that innitiated us to create a test lab specifically focused on answering these questions. Our first test explored the question: Can nacho cheese be used to hold a picture frame?

Up next… Some believe that eating a bit of cheddar at the end of a meal helps protect teeth by stimulating the production of cleansing saliva and help harden teeth because of the calcium. We’ve taken that theory to the next level: Can nacho cheese be used as a toothpaste and mouthwash?

Join Team ILoveNachoCheese and Fight Disease

FoldingathomeStanford’s Folding@Home project began four years ago to test algorithms designed to show how potential drugs will bind to proteins in the body. Since diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s are caused by protein malfunctions, scientists believe the project will reveal what type of drugs could fight these diseases.

Sony just debuted the Folding@Home client for the PLAYSTATION 3, and we’ve just created “Team ILoveNachoCheese” [TEAM# 59160] to help aid the fight. We encourage all our readers with a PS3 to join our team. The nacho cheese loving community must unite!

To join, simply run the client on your PLAYSTATION 3, press the TRIANGLE button to open the options menu. Choose “Identity” and then select “Join an Existing Team.” Last but not least, Input Team# 59160. Voila! You’re done. The PS3 client even allows you to keep track of team statistics and ranks what team members are contributing the most.

Gagfilms.com Presents: The Nacho Newsreel

NewsreelBack in February we introduced the world to a true nacho loving hero – Dane Boedigheimer. Dane runs the site Gagfilms.com and was the brainchild behind the classic one-minute breakfast cereal commercial spoof, Nacho Blasters. Being a fan of our site, he generously produced a custom video just for us! Once again, Dane proves that he knows comedy. Unlike other homemade videos that generally suck, his latest offering does not suck.

Phone Hack Using Nacho Cheese

Story suggestion by: Greg L. Email us a story.

CellhackA reader recently sent in a link to a video that demonstrates nacho cheese being used to hack a cell phone. The video offers step-by-step instructions on how to modify any cell phone to receive police transmissions.

We haven’t tested the procedure ourselves in our Nacho Cheese Test Lab, but we have a sneaking suspision that it would probably fail. Watch the video and see for yourself.

Radio Alice II: The Wrath of Cheese

CheeeeseAfter a quick phone interview with Sarah & No Name last Thursday, the three of us were invited into the studio the following morning to do an on-air “private nacho tasting” of our Official Recipe with the morning crew.

That morning we met up and carpooled into the Alice @ 97.3 Station located in beautiful San Francisco. Already excited, on the way up we got even more amped when we heard them discussing our upcoming appearance. At that point, all we could think about was how terrible it would be if they ended up hating the recipe. When we arrived, we were greeted by Hooman and led into the Green Room to set up shop and begin cooking up our heavenly orange-colored gravy.

Below we’ve included two audio clips. The first is a little pre-appearance banter; the second, our on-air interview. Wondering how it all turned out? Well…you’ll have to listen. But to give you a clue, they’ve invited us back for their Cuatro de Mayo broadcast! Oh yeah…one last thing. Christy, the gal that called in with your…ummm…”joke?” Could you email us and explain? We’re all still trying to figure that one out!

As Heard on Alice @ 97.3

NonameYesterday, we received an email from a reader tipping us off that the local morning DJs “Sarah & No Name” of Alice @ 97.3FM were talking about our site over the air. I called in and arranged a phone interview for this morning at 5:40am.

For the uninitiated, The Sarah & No Name program is the number one morning show in the San Francisco Bay Area. So to get an opportunity to speak with them was pretty exciting. And although I didn’t have my two nacho loving compadres at my side, the interview went well. Best of all, they invited us ALL to come in tomorrow morning at 7:50am to serve up our Official ILoveNachoCheese.com Recipe!

So tune in, or log onto their Live Stream tomorrow to listen. Hey…what the heck, try calling in to say “hi.” The number is: 1-800-400-3697. In the meantime, we’ve uploaded a clip of this morning’s interview for your listening pleasure.

As Heard on KGO-AM 810 Radio

KgologoYesterday, ABC owned KGO-AM 810 Radio invited us to their Downtown San Jose, California office to participate in a quick interview with reporter Rob Artigo. Excited, the three of us hopped into a car and drove over wondering what to expect.

When we arrived, Rob greeted us, brought us into his studio, and flipped open the mic. We chatted, laughed, and had a great time for about 20 minutes. A few hours later, our segment was broadcast over the San Francisco Bay Area airwaves for all to listen to. We couldn’t be any happier with the way it turned out!

We were able to obtain a copy of the clip for your listening pleasure.

The Nacho Cheese Test Lab will be an ongoing feature that will report on our nacho cheese experiments. Needless to say, if you have an idea for a study you’d like us to conduct, write us. We do the tests so you don’t have to!

Humerous + Genious = Nacho Blasters

Nachoblasters_1

There are few heroes out there that contribute to the nacho community as much as the triple-threat team of Dane Boedigheimer, Mitch Rudolph, and Ken Davis. These three friends came together and produced a one-minute commercial spoof on a breakfast cereal product called “Nacho Blasters.”

The video begins with a man faced with spending another morning eating the same ol’ bowl of “Boring-O’s.” That is, until he’s presented with a cheesy alternative.

Unlike other homemade videos that generally suck and are unwatchable, “Nacho Blasters” has three things going for it:

1. It’s short and leaves you wanting more.
2. It’s primary theme is nacho related.
3. It doesn’t suck and is watchable.

Now make yourself some nachos, sit back, relax, and enjoy our feature presentation…
