The Chainsmokers - Sick Boy Music Album Reviews

Trading away the dance-pop trifles of their hits for a faceless stylistic shuffle, the duo seems to be tiring of itself, too.
We’re going to be stuck with the Chainsmokers forever. Though the unctuous duo of Drew Taggart and Alex Pall are probably not destined for decades of unqualified success, their insipid spin on EDM’s big-money boom has become as much an eye-rollingly omnipresent part of our national fabric as “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Most living humans in the Western world have likely had the unfortunate sensation of having a Chainsmokers hit stuck in their head, as gross as gum on a hot bus seat; after all, their Coldplay collaboration, “Something Just Like This,” seems made only to ooze from department-store speakers for eternity. There’s even a goddamn feature-length film based on the M83-aping “Paris” in development. Like so many modern American atrocities, the Chainsmokers are just something we’re going to have to endure.

Recipe Notes
Serve with blue cheese dressing or ranch dressing. 
Key to Success #1 – Dredge Those Wings
Hmmmm, maybe I should have put flour those wings. Either way, one of the keys to getting crispy chicken wings is to flour them up right from the start.

I like to use a simple mix of flour and salt, but you can add other seasonings to the flour mixture if you want. If you like things extra spicy, a bit of Slap Ya Mama Cajun Seasoning would be a really nice touch.

Key to Success #2 – Place The Wings in a Single Layer
I have a Cozyna XL 5.8 QT Air Fryer and I can fit 12 wings at a time in my Air Fryer basket. If you’re looking to buy an Air Fryer, I recommend an XL model just because you won’t have to make as many batches when you’re cooking.

And I recommend the Cozyna specifically because it’s been a great machine – easy to use, works great, easy to clean. It’s dishwasher-safe but I always hand-wash mine because it just takes a second. And a great tip from my sister-in-law – put a paper towel in the bottom of your air fryer below the basket to catch any drips!

Regardless of what model you have, I recommend lightly spraying your chicken wings with extra-virgin olive oil before cooking.

I have these nifty spray bottles that I use to spritz my food with EVOO. Each spritz of the spray bottle delivers only about 1/4 of a teaspoon of oil so you are really not adding a lot of oil. A little oil goes a long way toward crisping up your air fried chicken.

Key to Success #3 – Make Your Own Buffalo Sauce … and make plenty
You won’t believe how easy it is to make your own buffalo sauce! The “recipe” is simply 1 part melted butter to two parts hot sauce. The butter makes the sauce silky smooth.

You can use your favorite hot sauce. We like to use Texas Pete Hot Sauce. You could also use Frank’s Red Hot or whatever you prefer.

For two pounds of crispy buffalo chicken wings, 3 tablespoons of melted butter + 6 tablespoons of hot sauce is more than enough. You’ll have plenty for tossing the wings and some leftover for dipping or dunking.

These Crispy Air Fryer Buffalo Chicken Wings are great served with the traditional blue cheese dressing. All we had was ranch dressing and that worked perfectly as well. Never ever be afraid to make recipes your own. As long as you like it, you’re never wrong.

Synology could do a little more to explain the many features of the MR2200ac for first-time users, but the strong performance of this mesh system, and the fine-control provided by its web browser interface make it a good option for business users or home users who have a little more experience of networking technology.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review

Though similar to the OnePlus 6T the Oppo RX17 Pro is very different thanks to the software. Here’s our full review
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
The RX17 Pro is a great looking phone with good performance and a lush display. But with a Snapdragon 710 rather than the better 845 it’s just impossible not to compare it to the OnePlus 6T which looks the same, has better software for the western market and, importantly, costs less.
If you like the look of Oppo’s interface though then there’s a lot to like. The two colour options are premium as is the build quality and the cameras are above average if not great.

Nokia 9 Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

We've waited two years for the Nokia 9, and at the end of this month the company could finally put us out of our misery. Here's what we know about the Nokia 9 PureView, which could feature a penta-lens rear camera.
Nokia made its comeback to the Android market in January 2017 with the Nokia 6, and we've been waiting two years now for its long-rumoured flagship Nokia 9 to arrive. At MWC 2018 we thought that time was here, and then we got the the Nokia 8 Sirocco. But now the wait could really, really be over, as the Nokia 9 is tipped to land before the end of January 2019.
