About Ryan Sloan

Ryan is a bassist and is reduced to single syllable words when hunger strikes. When he's not playing bass, he's probably not playing bass.

The Confession of a Chipotle Addict

By |March 6th, 2015|Categories: Articles, Food|Tags: , , , , , |

It’s 8:10 PM, and a certain foodie already ate dinner. It was a lovely seasoned chicken breast sautéed with some herbs in olive oil, coupled with a sensible and healthy side of rice and green beans. Balancing this seemingly healthy meal was a small bowl of chocolate-chip cookie dough ice cream. Okay, maybe balancing isn’t the right word. You might think this is enough to satisfy a normal 30-year-old adult male, but you’d probably be wrong. You’re overlooking a very important detail. This adult h [...]

Welcome to my altered state of reality. Don’t worry; there are no purple skies, random giant penguins, or dogs on bicycles. The dogs just drive trucks and cook hamsters.

I specialize in all things music, wrestling, and burritos. For the purposes of eciov, however, I will focus on the amazing world of music. You will f [...]
