The Coldhitz Vlog
Hello, and welcome to "The Coldhitz Vlog" . My name is Larry , and I am the host of , and the man behind , "Pie In The Sky " , and "The Pie Vlog ". These are the two shows I use to teach the world how easy , and rewarding it is to bake their very own fresh pizzas. The two shows compliment each other , as "Pie In The Sky" is an instructional show , and "The Pie Vlog " serves as the question and answer aspect of the two shows. They are both featured on this Vlog ,which will be my main broadcast outlet , and on my Youtube channel , viewable at http://www.youtube.com/coldhitz. They are the first shows in what will become a full broadcast venue , centering on lifestyle and entertainment .
I chose to start with the subject I am most knowlegable of , and passionate about...pizza. My journey , in pursuite of the pie , started in High School. One day , in my Food Science and Nutriton class , my teacher asked us each to select one food we could never imagine being without. My father had been the only other person I ever saw make his own pizzas , so I grew up on fresh pizza , and already had the inside track on anyone that came out with the same answer. So , that's where I started , and after working in the restaurant biz , from waiter to delivery driver and manager , I've done it all. It's been a steady , and purposeful , journey. One that has taken me from , my home town of Dallas , to L.A. in search of the best pizzas , as I pursued a living as an actor.
Now , I'm out to help save the world , one delicious pizza at a time. With my skills as an actor , and my passion as a Pizzaiolo , I want to carve out my own niche in the world. The best way to start off , I believe , is by helping others , and greatness will follow my path. I will answer any pizza related question and welcome each of my viewers to send them in to the comments section , on "The Coldhitz Channel" at http://www.youtube.com/coldhitz, or to post a question to my video recorder , from your webcame , on this Vlog , or at http://www.bakespace.com/?coldhitz . You can also recod a video message , on your cellphone , 30 seconds maximum , and send it to text to firstname.lastname@example.org . AT&T , Sprint , and Verizon wireless seem to have the best data speeds , and at this time T-Mobile is lagging behind. Thank you for choosing to spend your viewing time with me , and soon your loved ones will be asking you to make pizza tonite.

What Are They Feeding Us ?
Over the past five years , there has been an onslaught of bad news concerning the safety of food . Not just in fast food chains or impoverished towns , as it is now becoming common for us to be poisoned from the food in our neighborhood grocery store . So long gone are the days of trusting that what you are about to eat is gonna stay eaten . Will it mean a trip to the E.R. ? Stay healthy the news says ... followed by menacing details of another nationwide food recall . There were safety and regulatory agencies , who at one time were only responsible for the food at it's source and then passed on the responsibility to the retailers . They had plenty of money and personnel to get the job done and insure that dinner would be a winner . So , what the hell is going on ? What changed ?
Today , there is , at most times , a few thousand miles between field and table . This also means that countless shipping channels are used to get the food to your store , and makes it virtually impossible to trace the source of contamination . The Government of third world countries , where most of our food is grown , have shunned the responsibility of inspection in favor of the money the agricultural gold mine has put in their pockets . There is no U.S.D.A. outpost in the foreign fields of the grape farmer in Chile , or the cannery in Thailand that has a hundred container ships a day headed to the United States . This is a sad state of affairs that has gone on for far to long .
To combat this , and insure your better health , I suggest buying locally produced foods . Locally produced foods are grown by farmers within 50 miles of your home , and is known as the slow food movement . These foods encompass everything you can find at the store , from poultry to apples , and are much fresher and of a far superior quality . They also have a lower cost per unit and take a smaller toll on the enviorment , due to the reduced fuel used in shipping . If you wanna see America return to the forefront of the world stage , start by putting some bucks in the pockets of our American farming families . When a food source is known , an outbreak of contamination can be traced and prevented from happening again . By comparison , the outbreak of food born illnesses of recent days still remains unsolved and it never will be . The U.S.D.A. has given the blame to many a fall guy but has never published a conclusive determination as to the root cause of the source in even one case. It passes in the news as soon as the next great hoopla comes along , and until the next occurrence happens , is out of sight and out of mind . Unless you are one of the people now living with the effects of being poisoned .
