Four Tet - Live at Alexandra Palace London, 8th and 9th May 2019 Music Album Reviews

Kieran Hebden’s new live album reminds us that he is a stellar performer, not just a producer.
The British producer Kieran Hebden has one of the most distinctive signatures in electronic music. First, a gravelly drum machine; then, some jewel-toned synth pads; and, finally, a strip of harp or chimes or wordless cooing, unspooling like wrinkled ribbon.





Hawaiian Party Punch

Hawaiian Party Punch made with Rainbow Sherbet is a great festive party punch for your next Hawaiian Luau. It’s a tasty drink that also adds pretty color to your party table.

Prep Time - 10 mins

Course: Drinks
Cuisine: American
Keyword: hawaiian, hawaiian punch, punch, sherbet
Servings: 20 servings
Author: Jennifer

  • 48 oz rainbow sherbet
  • 2 liter 7-Up or ginger ale
  • 60 oz Hawaiian Punch
  1. Let rainbow sherbet sit out for a few minutes to soften (or microwave for 20-30 seconds) then scoop sherbet out into punch bowl.
  2. Pour 7-UP and Hawaiian punch over sherbet. Stir to break up large chunks of sherbet.
Recipe Notes
For a foamy punch, stir less and leave some smaller chunks of sherbet. For a smoother punch, stir until sherbet is completely incorporated. 
This recipe is based on one of my favorite punches. It’s easy to customize the juice and sherbet flavors depending on what kind of party you are having. For a Hawaiian Luau party, this flavor combination is perfect!

Key to Success #1 – Soften the Pretty Rainbow Sherbet
The rainbow sherbet makes this such a pretty party punch. All the colors mix together and make a pretty pattern on the top of the foam.

You’ll want to soften the sherbet on the counter top for a few minutes before you whip up this Hawaiian Punch. If you’re short on time, you can pop the container of sherbet into the microwave for 20-30 seconds to help soften things up.
Mayyyybe we drank half of the punch before I got around to taking photos of it. Ooops.
Key to Success #2 – Make Sure the Liquids are Cold
Be sure to refrigerate the 7-Up and Hawaiian Punch before you make this punch. Using cold liquids will ensure that your party punch is ready as soon as you are.

If you use room temperature liquids, your sherbet could melt faster than you want it to melt.

You can use ginger ale in place of the 7-Up and you could use pineapple juice in place of the Hawaiian Punch. I thought the red color of the Hawaiian Punch would be perfect for our Hawaiian Luau party.

Key to Success #3 – Be Prepared to Make More
I’m here to tell you – this punch will go fast! It’s super easy to make more on the fly though. If you leave a container of rainbow sherbet out to soften, you can just dip the sherbet into the bowl then add the liquids and give it a mix. That’s all it takes and you’re good to go.

I put my punch in my 9.5-inch glass trifle bowl. It holds over 5 quarts of liquid and I had plenty of room left when I made this recipe. You can also double or triple this recipe if your punch bowl is big enough.

Once Upon a Hollywood Movie Review

Say Goodbye to "Hollywood"

Moments of Quentin Tarantino's new movie "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" suggest a calmer and more reflective side of the filmmaker. Tarantino is known for his unrelenting violence and rapid-fire dialogue exchanges, but early scenes in his latest movie show him taking a bit of a breath. It's a nice touch, but Tarantino cannot help giving into his worst indulgences as a director; the movie ultimately succumbs to those, and it erases all hints of goodwill that may have been built up earlier in the film.

Fragrant, crunchy Asian pears add a refreshing melon-like flavor to the healthy chicken salad recipe. Look for the large, brown, apple-shaped fruit in well-stocked supermarkets near other specialty fruit.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab S4

Samsung has quietly announced the Galaxy Tab S6, but is it a worthy upgrade over 2018's Tab S4? We compare the two tablets, highlighting the key differences to help you decide which is best for your needs.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Or Samsung Galaxy Tab S4?
It’s hard to say without going hands-on with the tablet ourselves, but based on the specs, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 offers a range of upgrades over the Galaxy Tab S4, but if you’re a casual tablet user that doesn’t need blistering speeds or a huge amount of storage, the Tab S4 is still a great option.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 vs Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G: Head-to-Head On Vodafone’s 5G Network

Should you upgrade to 5G? We compare the 4G and 5G variants of Mi Mix 3 running on Vodafone’s network to see whether it’s worth taking the plunge.
Should I Buy The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3?
The Mi Mix 3 5G is faster and has a higher-capacity battery than the standard Mi Mix 3, yet weighs only 8g more. And while Vodafone’s 5G network is patchy right now, by the time you’re even halfway through your 24-month contract we should be in a completely different situation in terms of coverage. But are you prepared to pay double dollar for the priviledge of future-proofed connectivity and slightly better performance on an already fast phone?
