Chef'n ZipFlip Medium Turner, Cherry and Anthracite

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay product., Oct. 31 2012

This turner has a slimness and flexibility that make it a little different than other turners, and useful for certain cooking situations.

It's all about the musical ideas with Evans -- he's constantly going off in unexpected directions, and afterwards it all seems perfectly right.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best yet., Sept. 22 2012
This review is from: New Wild Everywhere (Audio CD)
This is a fine album by one of my favourite local bands -- The Great Exhale is one of their best songs ever. An ever-evolving group.

5.0 out of 5 stars Covers genius!, Sept. 22 2012

A collection of covers of an artist people are trying to honour can be a horrible mish-mash, but this one manages to, on the whole, put interesting spins on some great songs.

On first listen, this might strike you as less exciting than their previous album, but listen again and you'll find it mightily rewarding. There may be less visceral excitement, but a lot more interesting musical ideas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Frighteningly good!, July 21 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Graveyard Book (Paperback)
Gaiman is an author who appeals to young and old -- sort of a British Stephen King. A terrific imagination powers this book, along with a great sensitivity to how real people would feel in out-of-this-world worlds. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Melody!!, Oct. 30 2010
This review is from: Flamingo (Audio CD)
I've not been a fan of The Killers, Brandon Flowers' band, but this solo work is the most melodic piece of pop I've come across in a long time. Very entertaining.

L'élégance du hérisson

4.0 out of 5 stars Wait for it, Oct. 30 2010

The Elegance of the Hedgehog is the type of book that you don't fully appreciate until the end. Remember reading Tale of Two Cities? There's a sophisticated construction, delivered in sophisticated language, that packs a punch when it all finally comes together in the finale. Well worth reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Graphic Novel and Philosophical Biography, July 20 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Kafka: R. Crumb (Paperback)
This book satisfies both the graphic novel lover, with excellent drawings by R. Crumb, and the reader interested in the life/literary development of Kafka -- a very good amalgam.

This review is from: Gold Collection (Frn) (Audio CD)
When I heard La Mer, I at first thought I was hearing Yves Montand. Upon googling it, I found it was by this French singer I hadn't heard of, Charles Trenier. What a wonderful singer! A great buy -- 40 songs for a pittance!
