About a year ago, I released a book called Viva La Pizza! The Art of the Pizza Box. It’s all about pizza boxes. History, art, technology…everything. The artists, the history of iconic images…everything. I ended up collecting so many pizza boxes in researching the book that I applied for, and received, a Guinness World Record.

It’s fun an all, but just because you have a world record doesn’t mean you’re in the Guinness Book of World Records. Only a chosen few get that level of prestige. I’m proud to announced that I have achieved that level. I got an email a couple days ago letting me know that I’m in the book and it’s already on shelves across the planet. It’s real. I saw it with my own eyes. I’m on Page 90.

"Some kind of magic happened with that horse… I would really love to say it was by design, but it was a complete accident. Now we have stared for many hours at that horse, trying to define it’s essence… But the horse itself was a complete accident."

Happy 10th anniversary to Skateboardin’ 2k6, a video I made with some friends during that magical time between graduating college and finding a job. We called it ‘2k6’ even though it was made in 2004 because we were hilarious. 

This was produced before online video was really a thing. I remember working reasonably hard on this for a day or two, hosting a small screening for a few friends, and that was pretty much it. In the past 10 years so many opportunities have opened up to cram short dumb funny videos down the throats of those I love. I don’t know what I’d be doing if I was born in a different era. It’s been a fun decade.

You can watch Sk8boardin’ 2k6 here, or you can wait 10 more years for the inevitable Criterion Collection.

I tasted a bunch of different frozen pizzas for BuzzFeed in an effort to answer one of the most common questions I get on pizza tours: WHAT’S THE BEST FROZEN PIZZA ON THE MARKET? 

Of course videos like this are made to be funny, but I want to clarify some technical questions that might pop into some of the more inquisitive pizza minds:

1. We baked each pizza according to the instructions on the box, so if a pie looks funky you can blame the pizza company. 

2. This does not represent every brand on the market, so don’t freak out because we didn’t try Tombstone or Freschetta or whatever your favorite frozen pizza may be. BuzzFeed brought 8 pies but one was microwave only (we only had an oven) and one got cut for time (Amy’s Organic, which I usually like but did not on this tasting). 

3. I grew up eating Ellio’s so I enjoyed it during this taste test even though I would never go out of my way to eat it.

4. I gave each pizza a rating out of 5 stars but none made it over 3.5 so they didn’t include them in the edit. 

5. Obviously frozen pizza should be judged on a different scale than fresh pies but since some these companies claim they deliver quality comparable to pizzeria products we really should hold them accountable.
