The long, silent shot of the front of the microwave was particularly poignant.

This is just so wonderful.

I have a feeling this is William Sanderson's character Larry from Newhart, years after his brother Darryl and his other brother Darryl passed away, and all he's left with is his microwave and a video camera.

It's Friday night at Helmutdog's house....

What's particulary genuis is that he doesn't even bother fully mixing the cheeze sauce and the canned chili. It's for realz, man!

I could have sworn we mocked the hell out of Steven Reed before on Metafilter, but for the life of me I can't find a previously.

Who eats corn on mashed potatoes anyways? Peas, maybe...

This reminded me of a live version of the Microwave Cooking for One book.

Protip: Go to 7-11, get a bag of Fritos (the $1.49 bag will do, don't go crazy here). The chili and cheese for their nachos/hot dogs is free, so after you've purchased your Fritos, open the bag, go to the chili/cheese dispenser, but the bag under one of the nozzles and push the buttons until you're satisfied. Bam! Saddest chili cheese nachos ever. Bonus points for starting out with chili cheese fritos.

Also sad: Mr Reed is a convicted sex offender. (Via Gawker)

Whenever I see things like this that are obviously done in a professional way (multiple cameras, good lighting), all I can think of is the group of professionals being made to record and edit this. People who went to school and studied art.

Wow, that is genius, he microwaves the jar. I'd have wasted a paper bowl on that.

Yeah, you motherfuckers will all be laughing your goddamn asses off when you're in your 70s and your food choices will be microwave spaghetti or cat food.

"The chili and cheese for their nachos/hot dogs is free..." ...if you've made a purchase of nachos/hotdogs?

If his spirits are still low by lunchtime, Mendic said that he can always count on the simple task of preparing himself a tasty meal to help shake off the blues. His self-proclaimed "house specialty" is nachos.

"I only make them a couple times a month as a treat, so they'll still seem special," said Mendic, arranging a layer of tortilla chips on a paper plate, then taking a Kraft single, carefully tearing it into sad little strips, and sprinkling it onto the chips as if it were shredded cheddar and not an individually wrapped slice of American cheese. "They taste real good, and only use up like one or two singles, so there's always enough for the next nacho time."

Mission tortilla strips are the business, this guy knows what he's doing.

When he tore the side of that bag of tortillas, I nearly cried.

This video is a sad delight. Some folks have used some other sad music: Stars of the Lid's Another Ballad for Heavy Lids, Gary Jules's Mad World, Samuel Barber's Adagio for Strings. There's also a version of the creamed corn video with some Erik Satie.

Oops. Stars of the Lid version is here.
