Must Read/See/Hear for 5/17
I know, I know… been a while since I’ve done this. I am finding that it’s a lot more difficult to maintain a weekly series than you’d think.
So I’ll make it short and sweet this Monday.
If you like food blogs, this one is a definitely a Must Read: 80 Breakfasts, written by a woman based in the Philippines, is a great food blog of very unique and tasty recipes that go beyond breakfast. One of the recent recipes posted was quinoa pudding with mango and pineapple, preceded by a recipe for fried eggplant with sumac and garlic yogurt dip. How can you go wrong with that? While the titles sometimes sound complicated, the author breaks down the recipes with simple explanations and fascinating stories about food.
Ellen Degeneres caused a little bit of a stir with Apple for poking fun at the iPhone. I love my iPhone and think it’s wonderful, but after seeing the satirical advertisement she did on her show, I don’t think it was much to get in a tizzy about. Ellen apologized — she really didn’t need to, if you ask me — and I suppose Apple is satisfied now.
I saw the Gorillaz play Coachella in April (I know, post still forthcoming!) and one of my favorite tracks was “Stylo” from the new album Plastic Beach. The music video is pretty great — Bruce Willis! — and the beat is catchy. Plastic Beach is certainly growing on me.
The official YouTube videos for “”Stylo” are disabled for embedding, but you can check out the video at the WBRU blog.
