Recipe: Dave’s Grandmother’s Pound Cake

Posted by Jenny Lewis Categories: Dessert, Comfort Food, Baking,

poundcake

Cake. We can all agree that it’s awesome, correct? Good. While it’s undeniably easy to stop in your trendiest neighborhood bakery or pick up a boxed mix and a tub of frosting (and please just… don’t), making a cake from scratch is not nearly as intimidating as you might think. In fact, I’m fully confident that anyone with a mixer and a bundt pan can successfully bake this cake. Besides, starting from a recipe as great as this one, you don’t have to be an expert baker, you just have to have good notes from the real recipe experts - in this case, grandmothers.

Blockbuster vs. The Beatles

Beatles HelpI’m pretty sure my local has committed artistic blasphemy.  Allow me to explain:

About a week ago, I was in the mood for something fun and nostalgic, so I swung by Blockbuster to rent a copy of Help!, which, for anyone who doesn’t know, is the second film made.

Now, Blockbuster didn’t carry it, and that doesn’t shock me too much as it’s not one of the more monumental of their films.  But, upon further prying, I discovered that they didn’t have A Hard Day’s Night, Magical Mystery Tour, or Let It Be either.  The very nice girl at the counter did tell me (with a degree of excitement), that they carried , which she thought was just ... awesome.  At this point, I had to quickly excuse myself before I began to do my hostile re-education routine on a complete stranger.

Posted by Lolita Beckwith Categories: Accessories, Culture, Retro,

NBC Revisiting ‘Knight Rider’

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Action, Sci-Fi/Horror, NBC,

Knight RiderYou gotta wonder if the network responsible for resurrecting American Gladiators and Bionic Woman is simply brilliant or desperate for ideas.  It has just been announced that will be dusting off another classic show for today’s audience:  Knight Rider.  A two-hour movie will air later this season; if viewers respond, it will most likely serve as a new series’ pilot.  (The original show, starring , aired from 1982-1986.)

Why Knight Rider?  Well it seems the success of has given the Peacock execs millions of (unoriginal) ideas to play with.  What if K.I.T.T. could also change shapes?  What if there were ‘evil’ versions of the K.I.T.T. mobile?

While I’m tempted to write this movie off altogether, the film is being produced by (Swingers, The Bourne Identity).  (Those of you who regularly watch the FilmCrunch reviews already know how much I love his directorial work.)  So with hesitance, I admit I’ll be watching the remake—if only to see Michael Knight’s retooled leathers.
