“A writer, like a boxer, must stand alone…having your words published, like entering a ring, puts your talents on display; and there’s no where to hide. The truth is revealed, and sometimes, the results can be disastrous…”

About Cue the Critic

Cue the Critic, Your Definitive Guide To Gastronomic Suicide | Because everything you eat is or can be killing you.  You might as well enjoy it.

To say this site has a specific theme or goal would be inaccurate. It doesn’t. I’m not sure what I want to do other than take pictures of food and food-related stuff and talk about them [and sale advertising space]. I like eating.  That goes without saying, but I also like the preparation, the art, and the experience that comes along with eating. I like to go to different restaurants and eateries.  More often than not, I have an opinion or story about them and I suppose that is where this website comes into play. Oddly enough, I do like cooking despite any other statements to the contrary. I don’t consider myself someone who can cook, naturally, but I can follow a recipe or YouTube video; those adventurous tales will also appear here.

The Cue the Critic website, I suppose, is what its slogan implies, a definitive guide to gastronomic suicide.   In one way or another just about everything you eat, whether at a restaurant or in your own home is or can kill you.  I say let it taste good while doing so.  Any any, a good majority of my food adventures will be posted here and you can take it for what it is worth, good looking food, food commentary and stories.

About the Author

My 29th birthday celebrations at Oh My Burger in Gardena, CA.

 

My name is Quincy Freeman, but I prefer to be called Cue. I’m just a guy who has always been known for eating. Since I was a child, I have had an undying love for food which started with In-N-Out’s french fries while on a cross-country road trip with my dad and Uncle Ronnie and evolved into a several year marathon of eating everything from everywhere.  As the reality television, blogs, and YouTube culture increased, I found myself trying a lot of foods I would see in those spaces. Going back as far as I can remember my reputation has been based on food [and technology], and the amount of I can consume.

You can contact me by e-mail, find me on Instagram, on Facebook or follow me on the Twitter.  Follow me on Tastemade to see my mini-series of foodie adventures.

 

You don’t say?

  • My favorite color is red.
  • I don’t eat as much bacon as my friends think I do.
  • I failed 9th grade English, and struggled with reading and writing well into my adulthood.
  • I do like some vegetables. Broccoli, snap/winter peas, and asparagus are my favorite. I like raw carrot too; cooked, not so much.
  • I can be extremely bashful and shy in certain situations, while arrogant and prudish in others.
  • I prefer pie over cake.  Sometimes I like cupcakes, though.  I absolutely love Carrot Cake.
  • Me cooking for a woman is the ultimate demonstration of love, and expression of how I feel about her, immensely.

Behind the Scenes

This blog is powered by WordPress, using the AutoFocus theme.

So far, the some photos on this blog were taken with an iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5S or Nikon D40 w/ the kit lens or a Nikon 55-200mm f4-5.6G ED AF-S DX Nikkor Zoom Lens, respectively.  When the images are cropped or edited [many are not] I use Adobe Photoshop CS6 Extended, or Adobe Lightroom.

Written content is professionally edited by Tatyanna Wilkinson of Egeria Consulting.

 

Other

Additionally, I am good friends [acquaintances] with some of the owners of the restaurants I write about; that does not have any bearing on my opinion, however.  Those I am not friends or acquaintances with, I usually make a conscience effort to meet and shake hands just to say “Hey, I’m Cue, I eat here OFTEN, I am your P1.”
