New " I Tried So You Don't Have To" out today! 😝


From their sliders to the white & blue aestetic, White Castle is unique from other fast food.

I grew up LOVING fast food. Coming from an Asian house, having Western food was always a treat from the usual rice. Every once in a while mom or dad would bring home pizza or fried chicken, but rarely burgers and even less so for White Castle.

I was delighted to find out there was White Castle close to my Middle School and I absolutely loved dining there.Not too long after the movie Harold & Kumar only reinforced that feeling.

Now with 16 year long career in the Professional Culinary Arts, I’ve done it all! Won TV competitions, appeared in News Papers & fed numerous celebrities. What do I think of todays Fast Food offerings after all that? Click the LINK IN BIO to find out!

Catch the latest episode of "I Tried So You Don't Have To" with Chef Brian Tsao!

Growing up in a multi ethnic household I never felt a sense of identity.

The feeling of alienation I carried my entire life was exacerbated when I attended High School in Beijing China. I went to an international school with a large South Korean student body & was labelled as “the American” by my classmates & staff.

One night in a Beatles themed bar call Stg. Peppers a Fillippino cover band heard my grandfather was born and raised in the Philippines. That was enough for them and they treated me like family!

The first single "Mind Can Be Cruel to Me" is out now!

William Elliott Whitmore will release his eight full-length album I’m With You on October 16. On his first release of original material since 2015’s Radium Death (ANTI-), Whitmore widens the horizon of his True North folksongs and twangy punked-up country, aided by his world weary voice, country-baked banjo and hard-strummed guitar.

The video for the first single “My Mind Can Be Cruel to Me” is available now

Whitmore said of the single:

The song "My Mind is Cruel to Me" is about perception. Our memories and thoughts can be torturous at times. Mark Twain called it the "devil's race track", when a line of thought and worry goes around and around in a circle inside our brains. Is the mind a separate entity from the body? At what point does it feel as though our brains are actually betraying us?

Human beings are a complicated animal, and with that comes complicated emotions, fears, and habits. This video is meant to show that. Are the other band members real or not? It's hard to remember, but I swear they were breathing and talking when we filmed it. The bass player, my friend Wolfina, kept messing up takes. I'm pretty sure I'm recalling that correctly. The guitar player, Patsy Decline, was trying to mimic the pedal steel part on her semi-hollow body electric. She did a great job I thought, really captured the spirit. I'll never forget the time we had, it's good to be around friends.
