Turntable Cheese Board

Throwing a dinner party? Here's our tip for setting the mood: good tunes and tasty hors d'oeuvres. This rockin' serving board lets you present your favorite cheeses while paying homage to vinyl. Designed to look like a record player, the turntable is actually a slate platter. Lift the "needle" and you'll find a hidden cheese slicer. As Cat Stevens put it, The First Cut is the Deepest, but they're all equally delicious. Made in China.

"Unlike silly songs for children by, say, Raffi, or maudlin songs for parents like Dylan’s 'Forever Young' or Cat Stevens’s 'Father and Son'—two ballads eager to preserve their singers’ sons in amber..."

"... [Paul] Simon had genuinely intergenerational appeal. He shared with us young passengers the joyful and terrible news of adulthood with patty-cake rhymes ('mama pajama,' 'drop off the key, Lee') and jaunty rhythms, scored by a panoply of ludicrous and wonderful-sounding instruments—from the hooting cuíca in 'Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard' to the triumphant parade drums of 'The Obvious Child.'"From "Paul Simon: Fathers, Sons, Troubled Water" by Daniel Drake (NYRB).It's interesting, the ...

‘Flight of the Conchords’ Played a New Song on ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’

Flight of the Conchords ended all too soon with its final second season back in 2009, and fans have been hoping for some kind of revival during this ongoing period of Peak TV that has seen plenty of previously concluded shows brought back from the dead. They’re getting their wish next month with Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie reuniting for a concert special on HBO next month. And to help promote their return, New Zealand’s fourth most popular folk duo appeared on The Late Show with Stephen C...

‘ICE’ at LA’s 24th Street Theatre: How we came to this place on immigration

The simple but extraordinarily effective stage designs for 24th Street Theatre’s latest offering, “ICE,” immediately inform us of time and place. A dilapidated truck, a cathedral’s stained-glass window, a quintessentially local street lamp — all these say Los Angeles. A Dodgers announcer excitedly narrating Fernando Valenzuela’s every move via two large television sets with display dials proclaims the 1980s. What was the rest of our nation like then? This play by Leon Martell, currently in its w...

Elegant Farm Wedding in Iowa :: Megan & Chris

Photography by Andrea Boller. When you have a family property featuring its own magical woods, and it’s the very same property where your parents got married thirty-five years before, I think the venue hunt is over before it begins, don’t you? Rather than go down the rustic route, Megan and Chris decided to go for an elegant, pared-back feel, to let all that natural beauty shine through. My favorite details? Megan’s tulle Monique Lhiullier gown in the palest possible blush, bright florals just ...

"I pity you with your inefficient nostrils."

#4 on Scott Adams's list of top 10 favorite "Dilbert" strips. Maybe I like this the best because I myself have lost nearly all my own sense of smell. And I happen to know that Scott Adams has lost his sense of smell. I've heard him say (on a Periscope) that he's completely happy to have no sense of smell because most smells are bad. Might as well love whatever it is that's your predicament if you can't change it. If I were deaf, I'd enjoy the quiet. If I were blind, I wouldn't have to bother wit...

REVIEW: Iron & Wine – “Beast Epic”

Much pomp and circumstance has been made about Sam Beam returning in 2017 to the form of his early years.  But while Iron & Wine’s Beast Epic, out today on Sub Pop Records, is certainly a stripped-down affair compared to some of Beam’s Warner Bros. catalog, it is still a highly polished outing, with Beam’s trademark, hushed multi-tracked vocals high in the mix alongside all sorts of well-placed figures and accoutrements – backing piano, subtle percussion, weeping strings, occasional plumbs of ba...

A Good Chunk Of Guardians Of The Galaxy Is Devoted To Calling This Character Ugly

There's a lot to love about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. There's the soundtrack (which features the likes of Fleetwood Mac, Sam Cooke, and Cat Stevens, to name a few); there are the jokes (the best of which are delivered by Baby Groot, hilariously voiced by Vin Diesel, via his translator Rocket, voiced by Bradley Cooper); and then, there's the all-star cast (led by Chris Pratt as Star-lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, and David Bautista as Drax).All in all, it's a vibrant, action-packed film with...

Jack & Rebecca's Song On This Is Us Could Be One Mandy Moore Recorded Years Ago

If Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) and Rebecca's (Mandy Moore) relationship on This Is Us didn't give you serious couple envy, we might not be watching the same show. The Pearson parents may not be perfect — their petty-as-hell fight over Rebecca choosing to go on tour with her ex-boyfriend Ben (Sam Trammell) proves that — but their love story is one for the ages. No TV couple seems better suited than Jack and Rebecca — and every couple deserves their own song. Now, a new fan theory thinks that they've...
