Re: Kitchen Q&A (or, Ask Anorak about cooking and stuff)

Anyway, here's a recipe for a chocolate hazelnut spread that a friend of mine tried and said it was great. It looks easy as well. Oh, you're a treasure, you are. I'll try that out when I can get my had around buying dried milk powder (or when I can think of something to substitute it with). I have ...

Re: Kitchen Q&A (or, Ask Anorak about cooking and stuff)

Has anyone ever made jam? It would be a nice thing to do this weekend but I'm terrified of trying it out in case it all explodes on my face or something. But: homemade jam! I did a few times when I was about fourteen. So if I could have managed it at fourteen you can do it too! Admittedly the resul...

Re: Yog(h)urt! (given the success of my cereal & toast threads)

The yoghurt is really delicious, only the texture is different every time and I have no idea why: sometimes it's runny, other times it is almost elastic like honey and at even other times it has the right texture but with small bits floating through the yoghurt. It's not all that bad, Lyns, honest!...

Re: Songs about Indiepop

The Moonlings 'Let's sell our records and move somewhere else'. "And if we spend all day listening to records it's only because every song was meant for us".

I have this annoying feeling that I am missing something really obvious -- and no, it is not 'Throw Aggi off the bridge'!

Re: Your favourite cover versions...

I love love love Bunnygrunt's version of 'We belong', it just makes me grin from ear to ear each time. That Cat's Miaow doing 'A day in the life', too, and the Pines' 'Darling don't you think?' and 'Not actual, not lasting', which were originally by the Fairways and (I believe) Sweet William origina...

Re: Belle and Sebastian

Wasn't 80s fan, (when I first heard Camera Obscura) a bit Belle and Sebastian-like with its instrumentation? Didn't Stuart Murdoch have a hand in the production or something? He did do the production, yes, at least that's what I remember. He was also Traceyanne's boyfriend at the time. I think he d...

Haha. I sparked a mini-debate. Who would have thought. I'm sorry, Pete, I didn't mean to. I do kind of see the difference between Myspace and Facebook, by the way. I was just being silly.

Re: what book are you reading?

I'm not very good with death and it starts off a bit grimly, doesn't it? But that's what I really enjoy about it: the way it so effortessly slips from melancholy to sweetness, and from abstract theological discussions to funny anecdotes. It's wonderful. I don't know. I mean I don't know if I would ...

Have just started in the Jon McGregor book you lot have all been raving about and although I have only read about 20 pages yet, I've got a feeling it is going to be a fantastic read. It is so wonderfully written. It unfolds like a film ... It does unfold like a film, doesn't it? And I seem to have ...

Has anyone read Gilead by Marilynne Robinson? I was in a bookshop on Monday and it was calling me from the shelf for some reason. I couldn't remember if someone had recommended it to me or what. Anyway, I started reading it yesterday and it was depressing the hell out of me for a bit but the more I...
