  1. I'm not really sure that it was supposed to be a drawn-out process. It seemed like a change that was meant to be switched on overnight, when the barn interaction happened.
  2. If you use damp kitchen towel it'll steam it to some extent, while toasting it, which helps. Dried chilis can still have all the punch you'll need. God knows I have plenty that are essentially chemical warfare rather than feasible foodstuff.
  3. You can microwave the dried pasillas/anchos/chipotles etc for about 10 seconds to make them more pliable. And pungent. I assume I robbed that tip off Serious Eats. Just like everything else.
  4. I'm on the same page as everyone else with this: worth a watch, because it's pretty good. 6.5/10 territory. Some good set pieces, blended well with horror tropes and hints at world-building. I hope they'd end it there, but it's all James Gunn's family, so maybe it'll be a huge Gunniverse. And they'll all have Elizabeth Banks in.

    Pitt cue

    Having not had access to a Bodean's, the UK bbq explosion started at the time Pitt and Red's (in Leeds) opened up for me. Around 2011. Which was amazing timing as I'd just spend a couple of months living in North Carolina, and had become dependent on mustard-based bbq sauce and non-saucy smoked ribs. Only actually went to Pitt once, but loved it. Sad to see it go, and to see Red's closing some branches. But I suppose this wave may be coming to an end. I still love doing some ribs myself, but my bbq/smoking fervour has definitely flattened out.
  6. Reminds me of Red Star. I'll play it.
  7. Holy fuck. Nearly two decades of waiting for the seemingly impossible conclusion of a game series, potentially a creative swansong for one of the 90s greatest game-making minds. And the world is shitting its bed because they have too many PCs to play it on and might have to click a different icon to launch it. Jesus wept. That said, cloud saves are on the Epic store roadmap. And whilst behind schedule, I'd bet a shiny penny on them landing before Shenmue 3 does.
  8. I hope you never have to learn the dictionary definition of the phrase "majorly inconvenienced". It's much worse than you think it is.
  9. I don't even know how people begin to give this much of a fuck about something so trivial. But fair play to them: they must live otherwise content, charmed lives if something like this is a problem. Right?

    Nintendo Switch

    Give yourself a week or so to see if you like the split controller configuration. I played through all of both that way, and loved it. Also, some of Mario Odyssey's moves are probably a little easier with split controllers.
  11. The balanced view is that it's completely irrelevant. Smearing people because they were 'up to no good', and as such may as well have been guilty of a fraudulent accusation is some bullshit that we've pulled for far too long.
  12. Amazing showings by Valentina and Cejudo. So crazy that we'd never had a simultaneous double champ til a couple of years ago, now we're on our fourth! Ferguson did a great job beating up Cerrone, even though the finish was a mess. It went as expected, and it wasn't going to get any better for Donald. Ferg is so dangerous, I reeeeally hope the Khabib fight happens.

  14. I enjoyed this a lot, though I'm a big fan of the 'fish out of water trying to make it to the party and learning about themselves along the way' genre. And it's definitely one of those. But it also does an incredibly good job of weaving in, and normalising, conversations that would have been a bigger issue in other films. That said, as with Blockers (which I liked too), modern adult screenwriters seem to have an obsession with the idea that all teenagers are on DMT. Or other scary-sounding drugs that they've heard of but don't quite understand.
