What we’re lov­ing on the box, the web and wher­ever. DVD: Ma­chete, dir. Robert Ro­driguez, 2010. Oo­dles of style and glo­ri­ous ac­tion. This is a no­holds-barred tale of a good man against the dirty dou­ble-cross­ing world. Star­ring Danny Trejo, it’s all-attitude, with a pal­ette of over-the-top char­ac­ters (Lind­say Lo­han, Steven Sea­gal, Danny De­Vito, Cheech Marin, Michelle Ro­driguez). Robert Ro­driguez’s best yet. AL­BUM: Roberta Flack – Killing Me Softly. A voice that makes you feel warm in­side and break out the dance moves in the kitchen. Flack’s smooth, soul­ful love songs range from achingly sad, to sassy and fun. In­cludes my ultimate shower singing song Killing Me Softly, and all-time favourite sad song, Jessie. WEB­SITE: Chowhound. This is an Amer­i­can foodie site on which no small de­tail of culi­naria is too minis­cule to avoid dis­cus­sion. The site fea­tures recipes, videos and dis­cus­sion board top­ics rang­ing from favourite strange flavour com­bi­na­tions to the so-called proper way to cook a range of dishes. Un­for­tu­nately for those of us who aren’t well-trav­elled we miss out on one of the site’s main fea­tures – on­go­ing threads about menus and culi­nary spe­cial­ties over­seas. TAKE­AWAY: Porirua Bak­ery and Cafe’s ba­con and mush­room sand­wiches are the busi­ness. Juicy but­tery mush­rooms paired with salty ba­con gen­tly en­folded in soft white bread. For only $3.
