So I watched the rest of season one. And aside from that one episode (which I posted about yesterday) I didn't have a major problem with it. In fact, I'll go further than that. I liked it. I REALLY liked it. BUT spoilers under the cut )

I dunno. Maybe I'm worrying too much. Maybe this is just what the press is being fed, or what they're paying attention to, rather than what's actually going to be the focus of the series. But I have some disquiet.

At $55 a set, the Phottix Ares remotes bring a ton of value to the table, making them our recommended pick for photographers building out a beginner's lighting kit. For many photographers, in fact, these are the only remotes they will ever need.

See the newly updated Gear Guide: Remote Triggers post for more info.

There is a set of questions which can be called "The stupid questions asked by a journalist, which shows that they haven't done the most cursory research on the topic they are writing about". This will be an occasional set of posts highlighting these questions, and the answers to them, in an attempt to solve this problem.

Post number one: things the Meat Loaf won't do

Because the title of one of Meat Loaf's biggest hits is "I would do anything for love, but I won't do that", many, many, MANY idiot journalists have asked him what the "that" is, thus showing that they have never actually listened to the song, in which all the things which "that" refers to are detailed. Here is a list of all the thats that Meat Loaf won't do (some of them are a bit rude):

- forget the way you feel right now
- forgive myself if we don't go all the way tonight
- do it better than I do it with you
- stop dreaming of you ev'ry night of my life
- forget everything
- see that it's time to move on
- screw around

You're welcome. Next in this series: why did it take so long for daleks to fly?

I just watched ep10 of Supergirl - Childish Things - & there be spoilers under the cut )

I am beyond pissed off about this. I was REALLY enjoying that show. Fuck's sake. Like why do shows that I enjoy keep DOING this?

Anyway, that's my toys out of the pram. Yay.

5-Minute Sticky Toffee Pudding

Posted by Marc Matsumoto

A gorgeously plated dessert creates an anticipation that has the potential to elevate a simple sweet to a whole new level. But when I'm home alone in a threadbare t-shirt and pajama pants, and I start craving sugar, I'm not really looking for a deconstructed summer berry patch. A carton of ice cream, a jar of homemade strawberry preserves and a spoon will suffice. Food does not have to be beautiful to taste good. So what do I do when the urge strikes for something sweet, gooey and rich? Well... I'd probably make this 5 Minute Sticky Toffee Pudding (or...

Need a quick fried dough fix? This funnel cake is light and crispy on the outside and soft and pleasantly chewy on the inside. Dusted in a generous coating of cinnamon and sugar, I've mashed up two of my favorite county fair foods over at PBS Food, hit the link below for my full post and recipe.

[personal profile] yoyoangel has asked me to tell you what I was up to in 2001.

Age then: 23
Age now: 38

Relationship then: I was living with Ian, which didn't turn out well for the two of us, although it did produce Daughter, so I can't really complain.

Relationship now: Depending on where we start counting, I've been going out with Mat for ten years, James for five, and Alisdair for three, and I have lots of lovely friends and extended family, and doggies.

Where I lived then: Just around the corner from where I live now. Sunny Brighouse. Easy reach of the town centre and the park for dog walking.

Where I live now: Just around the corner from where I lived then. The house is slightly bigger (but still not really big enough) and slightly further away from the noisy dual carriageway.

Was I happy then: It had it's moments, but I wasn't in the best place.

Am I happy now: Yes. There are things I would change if I could, as there always are, but I am happier now than I have ever been.

Comment asking for a year if you'd like one.

Crispy Taco Rice

Posted by Marc Matsumoto

One of my favorite things about food is how it's constantly evolving based on the movement of people. Tex-Mex cuisine is just one example of a new style of cooking brought about by the mingling of culinary cultures. It's brought us favorites like Chili Con Carne and Fajitas, but what happens when you put a bunch of people brought up on Texmex on a tropical island in southern Japan? Taco Rice! Part rice bowl and part taco salad, it's become a defining part of Okinawan cuisine thanks to the American military presence on the southern chain of islands. While i...
