The Unpopular Opinion: ‘Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2’ is an Unsung Masterpiece of Horror Metafiction

Welcome to The Unpopular Opinion, a series where a writer goes to the defense of a much-maligned film or sets their sights on a movie seemingly beloved by all. In this edition: the much-derided sequel to The Blair Witch Project actually rules, thank you very much.) A little over a year after The Blair Witch Project hit theaters and subsequently became a box office phenomenon, Artisan Entertainment released a sequel that did…the opposite. Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 was meant to capit...

A Local, Italian Sustainable Christmas Gift Guide

This past year at work I’ve been involved in a project called TCBL, a collaborative, EU funded project to increase sustainability in the textile and clothing industry. It’s one of a number of initiatives working in this direction, a more B2B than B2C one. But maybe you’ve heard of the Ellen Macarthur Foundation or the campaign “who made my clothes”? The driving content is basically the same. We’re living in a world covered in an unimaginable heap of stuff, stuff that won’t disintegrate for centu...

Weekend Cooking: 2 New Cookbooks for Fall Cooking

As the farmer's markets wind down for the season, I've been turning once again to cookbooks for inspiration in the kitchen. I don't know about you, but in the summer, I tend to cook simple dishes based on whatever is fresh from the local growers. With the return to grocery store shopping comes cooler temperatures, and I'm far less reliant on season products. That's when new cookbooks, magazines, and websites offer bountiful ideas. Today I have two short reviews of cookbooks written by long-tim...

Nutella Swirl Bread

Nutella Swirl Bread Submitted by romibakes on August 27, 2018 - 10:02am. Hello -This weekend was my first attempt at a "swirl" bread - I followed the brioche recipe from Artisan bread in 5 minutes a day and filled it with nutella - it was pretty delicious and the fact that the "layers" separated had no affect on it being consumed rather quickly. However, I would like to know what I did wrong and what I can do to not have the layers separate and create huge pockets (see photo). Dough...

Report Suggests Physical Retail Stores Must Create Experiences Customers Cherish

Are Costco, Sam’s Club and BJ’s Wholesale doomed? According to an article in the Washington Post, millennial and Gen Z shoppers –the future of retail — haven’t warmed to the warehouse superstores in the way baby boomer and Gen X customers have. The article cites a millennial shopper who doesn’t want to schlep to the store to buy toilet paper, and a 50-year-old who says she loves Costco, but admits she’s one of the younger customers in the store. (The average Costco member is younger than they w...

Weekend Cooking: 3 Good Cookbooks

I don't know about you, but I like to spend the week between Christmas and New Years getting organized. This year, as I was going through my books, I found a few cookbooks I really wanted to share with you but didn't--for whatever reason. Before I find room for these cookbooks on my real or virtual bookshelves, I wanted to give them a moment in the limelight. I'm starting today with three titles that are at the top of my to-try list. Let me know if you've explored any of them. Each cookbook ha...

28 Authentic Venice Artisans

If Italy is famous for its handcrafted quality, it’s thanks to a long tradition of making things. In the early modern period, each important city was known for certain high quality goods as well as decorative arts for the home. Just within Tuscany, Florence made cloth along the Arno (though later turned banking), Prato was famous for its wool, Montelupo did ceramics and Volterra produced fine alabaster objects. In the Renaissance, Venice was a center of trade where you could get literally anythi...

Washington D.C. Offers Producers a Hefty Tax Rebate, Political Gravitas

Goat Cheese Farm Fromagerie Au Fond du Bois, Rexton, New Brunswick, Canada

We visit Fromagerie Au Fond du Bois, a goat cheese farm in Rexton, New Brunswick, making artisanal European-style goat cheese, in Eastern Canada. We’ve been thoroughly enjoying rediscovering my home province of New Brunswick over the past year, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t missing some things from our other home in Belgium. One of the most notable is good cheese (and you know for us that is a big problem). We were spoiled for choice in Brussels, as even the supermarket shelves were brimming...

Kitchenaid Artisan Mixer

Kitchenaid Artisan Mixer Submitted by enchant on November 18, 2016 - 4:56am. I've just recently started bread making.  We have a Kitchenaid 4.5 quart mixer which does a good job on everything we've needed up to now.  But it's having a lot of trouble with dough.  There is no spiral hook available, and dough always likes to climb up the hook and hang onto it.  At that point, I don't think any kneading is going on.  It's just there for the carnival ride.  The mixer is in pristine cond...

Spotlight: Artisan Lexus LC 500 Body Kit

The world’s first custom Lexus LC 500 we showed you a few days ago at the SEMA show will soon be available as a styling package through Japanese tuner Artisan Spirits. The elegant and discreet Artisan Lexus LC 500 features a semi-wide body kit designed to enhance the car’s own lines rather than attract attention to itself. That is why if you show these pictures to someone with an uninterested eye they will you it is a stock LC. But look closer and you’ll notice that Artisan Lexus LC 500 a un...

While most European tuners are getting to a point these days where they copy each other’s works and make the same sort of kits, it is good that we have Japanese tuners like Artisan Spirits who have a refreshingly unique and as yet unspoiled taste. This Artisan Lexus RX Black Label wide body is one this tuner’s latest works and it is magnificent. If you give a car like Lexus RX to a European tuner they will shrug their shoulders and tell you this thing has no potential for modification. Th...
