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.

  • 1 pkg (12 ct) King's Hawaiian Original Hawaiian Sweet Rolls
  • 1/4 cup butter softened
  • 1 can (20 oz) crushed pineapple drained well, juice reserved
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut
  • 2 Tbsp butter melted
For the Topping:
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tsp pineapple juice
  • 2 Tbsp sweetened flaked coconut
  • 1/4 cup macadamia nuts chopped
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 8X8 baking dish.
  2. Use serrated knife to cut Hawaiian rolls in half crosswise. Place bottom halves into baking pan.
  3. In medium bowl, mix together softened butter, sugar, crushed pineapple and 1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut. Spread filling onto bottom of rolls. Place tops of rolls over filling.
  4. Bake uncovered for 10-12 minutes until golden brown. Brush rolls with 2 Tbsp of melted butter.
  5. Mix 1/2 cup powdered sugar with 2-3 tsp of pineapple juice to make a thin glaze. Drizzle over rolls. Sprinkle rolls with flaked coconut and chopped macadamia nuts.
Key to Success #1 – Cut the Rolls Crosswise
I have a great tip for you when you’re cutting your Hawaiian Sweet Rolls. If you have a big enough serrated knife (this one is on major sale on Amazon right now), you can cut all the rolls at once instead of separating them then cutting each one individually.

You’ll want to cut them crosswise, cutting them through the middle to make the top of the roll and the bottom of the roll. Don’t worry if your cuts are not perfectly level. Once you add the filling, nobody will ever know.

Key to Success #2 – Drain the Pineapple Well
For these sweet rolls, you’ll want to drain your can of crushed pineapple very well to ensure that your rolls do not get soggy. You can use a fine mesh strainer to drain the majority of them liquid. Then I like to go an additional step and use the back of a spoon to try to press more liquid out of the pineapple.

You could also use a paper towel to soak up more of the juice. You really want to remove as much moisture as you can.

Be sure to save the juice though. I drain my pineapple over a 2-cup glass measuring cup and I usually get close to 1 cup of juice from a 20-ounce can of crushed pineapple. You will use some of the juice in the glaze for these Pineapple Coconut Sweet Rolls then you can use the leftover pineapple juice to make Hawaiian Chicken.
Key to Success #3 – Top Them Off Right
Right after the sweet rolls come out of the oven, use a pastry brush to baste the butter over the top of the rolls. Give the butter a minute to soak in then sprinkle sweetened flaked coconut and chopped macadamia nuts over the top of the rolls.

Next, in a small bowl mix together 1/2 cup of powdered sugar with 2 or 3 teaspoons of reserved pineapple juice to make a thin glaze. Then dizzle this yummy glaze over the coconut and macadamia nuts on top of your rolls.

This buttery and salty and sweet topping is really what sets these sweet rolls apart. You will not want to miss these breakfast rolls!

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.

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?

Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab S4

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.
