BanaBatGirl 04-21-2020 08:43 PM

For the past month, I've really been wanting to know who else in here watched Netflix's documentary Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem, and Madness, and if so, have also watched the related music videos? :xd: I can't be the only one. So yeah, that's my one rec for quarantine so far ehehehe.

itsjustjesse 04-22-2020 03:05 AM

I wanted to share this recipe for Injera with you guys. Its basically a lightly fermented Ethiopian/Eritrean component to many dishes – personally I love having it with Doro Wat and other Ethiopian/Eritrean dishes (typically most are vegetable-based but they are all delicious in my opinion).

One spice mix you likely will need is Berbere which you can either mix together yourself or purchase online.

__

Another thing i'd recommend is listening to the podcast Wait, Wait Don't Tell me

also - TK is great

Tiger King is epic!!! It's so bad it's good!! lol I can't get over the "here kitty kitty" song ... bahahahahahahaha



Okay: my recommendations for TV shows: Out-lander, Call the Midwife, and the Crown!! all really awesome shows!

BanaBatGirl 04-25-2020 01:08 AM

^ Right?! :whaa: Bahaha I'm a fan of I saw a Tiger... :music: :lmao:


I've also been binge watching Ozark (season 3 is great) and then my usual cooking shows, like Nailed It! and Zumbo's Just Desserts. I might start Better Call Saul again? Just watched the Breaking Bad movie and Aaron Paul is great on Westworld sooooo it seems right.

I feel like this time is also great to watch/rewatch some epic movies? So I watched ALL of the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies and now I'm rewatching Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy. Now more than ever is the time for superheroes, eh?

Superheroes are life :loved:


Myyy recommendation? It's for music and it's the band called Story of the Year (I currently have them on repeat on youtube lol). If you're into early 2000s emo rock like I am, then you should check out these guys :love: \m/

ArianaBlack 04-25-2020 03:33 AM

if you are like me and also don't like movies because it is difficult to sit in one place and pay attention for an extensive period of time, I come bearing recommendations of the TV show variety

I've been suuuuuper into How to Get Away with Murder since it first came out ... 5 years ago? 6? idk. But they're rolling out the final few episodes now, so it's a great time to jump in, you can just binge all the seasons it'll be grand. Also. Alfie Enoch is in it #hpfam4lyfe

Another fun suspencey show i love love love LOVE is Money Heist / Casa de Papel! It's on Netflix and season 4 just came out eeeeeeeee :x3:

but if you're more of a funnies person, def def def check out the Good Place - they just wrapped up the show a few months back. OR if you have hulu, Dollface is p funny but ?? isn't talked about much for some reason

also I can't believe Roro watched Tiger King
also, also I am not a fan of superhero movies but I also watched the Batman trilogy during this quarantine time and I have to say, it was ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC

it is! it is the best plate I've ever eaten :eyebrows: the best advice i got w/ it is to use a good mix of flours and to try to use a ratio of grains not just wheat flour (in Ethiopia they use teff but it is harder to control how the starter-bit of it)!

tiger king is brilliant roro i loved it too! also ariana i LOVED dollface...but i mean c'mon i had to watch it Kat Dennings is like the face of Mel. :loved:

tv shows! alright....if you haven't watched it - killing eve!

aaaand now a movie! what we do in the shadows aaaaaaand also the Hulu series *drum rolls* what we do in the shadows - they made a documentary tv-series based on the movie and it is JUST as brilliant. Viago from the original is my favorite character and with the new series Nadja is my favorite.

also youtube thing - if you guys like fashion blogging and people that aren't afraid to talk about their own insecurities and everything...i'd suggest you watch Ashley aka bestdressed on youtube (her handle was named as such because she was voted best dressed in school)...bestdressed/ashley really is unabashedly herself and quite raw and real at time.

also "robin hood: men in tights"...and really any Cary Elwes film

Stormdancer 04-25-2020 10:55 AM

TV Rec's! Yasss! Okay, here we goooooooooooo!
  1. Leverage! (a reboot has just been announced!!!)

One of my fave shows and one that I'm SAD to see coming to an end. Been following this from the inception and MAN. WHAT A RIDE IT HAS BEEN. There wasn't a new episode last week but I believe there's one this week and I CAN'T WAIT to find out what's going on with Analise.

Also, Connor is my guy :loved: His development from season 1 to present is mind blowing: from the way he got into a committed relationship to his keen brain that allows him to be such a great lawyer... just :love:

IDK why but the title of this movie really makes me laugh xD Anyway, I always say I'd watch it but never got around to doing so :mellow:

Boo, these two RIGHT HERE. I'm so pleased you're on your way to watching the entire series of CM. Did you secure all the episodes?

Also, you guys HAVE to watch all 4 of the CSIs'. CSI: Cyber was short lived but duuuuude. If you're into technology even to an extent, you'll LOVE it!

My recommendation this time issss: HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER :x3: The LAUGHS, man. I finished the entire series 2 weeks ago and I'm still hung up about it.

aRogueOne 04-29-2020 01:18 PM

Soooo, rather than go over things I've watched and make a huuuge list, i'm going to just give a smaller one with a few things I really like or am enjoying at the moment.

Movies:
Chef (Literally my favourite movie of all time. I never get to the end of the movie without smiling. The music is just so good throughout).
Draft Day (Because I love a good sports movie)
Inside Man (A little bit of an oldie now I guess but still really good)
Solo: A Star Wars Story (So I watched this again for the second time recently and enjoyed it so much more than the first time although that was on a plane with a tiny screen)
The Dawn Wall )I loooooved this so so much! A movie about the journey of 2 climbers up El Capitan! It made me quite tense watching it, thinking of those guys up that high in all sorts of weather)
Megamind (Because it is just one of the best animated movies ever! I just love it!)

TV Series
How I Met Your Mother (Just my all time favourite tv series. Don't @me with your "Ignore the final season issues" :lol: )
Star Wars: The Clone Wars Series (I have been on a massive Star Wars binge as of late and I honestly loooooved this! It adds so much to the prequel movie trilogy)
Top Boy: Summer House (This is the first tv show of Top Boy which was out in 2011. The newest season was everywhere for a while because Drake had something to do with it but I haven't got that far yet. This is a pretty great show though!)
Luther (Because Uh...Idris Elba and Ruth Wilson)

Podcasts (Because I just love podcasts at the moment!)
Not Another D&D Podcast (Just a brilliant, funny Dungeons and Dragons podcast! All time favourite!
Potterless (Because it's about Harry Potter! It follows a mid twenties guy who's never read a Harry Potter book before and it's so funny! You'll binge listen to them, shout at all the mistakes he makes and laugh at all of his terribe predictions!
Join The Party (Another D&D podcast but more new player friendly! They have beginner episodes that kind of breaks down how to play D&D as the first 2 episodes go along which helped me a lot! It's actually what got me into D&D in the first place)

So this is a lot longer than I thought and I'm so sorry :lol: I have so much more but I am going to try and restrain my self from just making a list that takes up a whole page :lol: Feel free to drop me a message if you want to know any more reccomendations or if you want to gush about how much you loved something! or hated it and are now angry with me for wasting your time :lol:

RandomRaven 04-29-2020 11:01 PM

5. Tabi Eats (especially their convenient store mukbang)
6. David Seymour
7. Peaceful Cuisine (the best asmr cooking on YouTube)
8. Hiho Kids (even though they also have non food related content lol)

Non food.

MEGAMIND! MY GOSH! When this movie was first released, I watched it over and over :lol: Still one of my fave.

OKAAAAAY. HIMYM! Imma gush here because I LOVE this show! I love it SO much! :love: The finals season wasn't as funny as the others but almost every episode made me emotional. I actually cried a few times. Between Marshall and Lily and Ted and Tracey :loved:... I wasn't a huge fan of Barney and Robin's storyline but I still enjoyed season 9. This series has a special place in my heart. And especially Marshall and Lily. They make me believe in love so much; they are truly couple goals. :loved:

I love him :3 He does colabs with some of my fave YouTubers and I'm a huge fan of how he plays the piano.


For my recommendation today, I encourage you to watch Hawaii Five-0 (the 2010 reboot). There are ten seasons and the series concluded earlier this April :cry:

Megamind is just great! Maybe it's just my sense of humour but I just find it hilarious and it's kinda nice to see a different type of hero and his journey through the movie! And also, I love how they kind of address the whole, hero and villain thing going back and forth as if they just enjoy fighting it out and trying to beat each other, like the villain never really wants to take over the world, he just enjoys the journey or the test of trying to overcome the impossible.

And HIMYM is just...ah I looove it so much! I honestly cried so so so many times! I mean, I've been putting off watching it for a while because I just watched it over and over but there were many scenes that I'd cry at everytime. I mean, that episode with the countdown when Marshalls father visits? Breaks my heart. AND then the one where Ted is in the bar talking to future Ted and Future Barney...Kills me. I honestly enjoyed the whole Robin and Barney storyline but like, I love it all :lol: I could gush for days!

Magical Soul 04-30-2020 06:34 PM

I'm going to try to stick to things that weren't mentioned here yet!

TV-Series:
  1. The Sinner (+18): A M A Z I N G. So suspense and I love mystery plots and thrillers and this is basically it. WITH Jessica Biel. So, perfect.
  2. The People v.s. O.J. Simpson: I've been watching a lot of nonfiction series lately and this is my favourite so far! I was not exposed to OJ's story before on account of not being in the US and too young at the time, so the series was extra exciting for me.
  3. The Confession Tapes (+18): another nonfiction, it's actually a documentary which I'm not going to explain in case I'm not allowed to on SS.
  4. Alias Grace (+18): I watched this in one day on the train of10 hours travel and I couldn't put the tablet down! SO good, suspense and mystery too but with a historic twist.

My gosh :x3: The story arc with his father is heartbreaking :cry: I can't get over how Lily broke the news to him, and how the episode ended with the two of them just standing together and the pain on Marshall's face :(
Future Ted and Barney confused me at first but then I got over that and had a good laugh :lol:

I've never watched any of these but Alias Grace appeals to me from what I've read online xD Hopefully I can give it a go.

So, I'm a huge fan of the Terminator series! Anyone else? This is my recommendation for this time around :x3:

It reaaaalllly is heartbreaking! But I love it so so much! One of my favourite episodes :lol: It was just heartbreaking! Just there in the street in the rain! The actors just nailed that scene.

I just loved the end part where Ted meets Tracy and he's just bearing his heart to her, even though she has no idea who he is and obviously it's not actually happening. Kills me :lol:

ooh i think i have that! but i don't think i've played yet?...lately i've mainly been playing state of decay 2 and giggling at glitches (like floating boxes) and screaming whenever i run into a juggernaut....or just scream at it generally for being so darn buggy :whaa:

ArianaBlack 05-06-2020 06:22 PM

A new netflix series (with darren criss bless him) has v much caught my interest, 10/10 recommend Hollywood - i still have a few episodes left but it's a good watch

Harron Peasley 05-08-2020 06:49 PM

Okay so I made Millionaire's Shortbread last week and Nicole said I should upload the recipe so here we are finally.

SO this recipe is for a 20x30cm baking tin, around 2inches deep. It gives a thick shortbread base, so you can reduce the amounts if you use a smaller tin or want a thinner base.

the amounts seems so random and weird because they're not rounded numbers but idk, trust me? it started as one recipe and I've ammended it over the years to make it better

SPOILER!!: recipe
https://i.postimg.cc/9z5Fm86v/shortbread.jpg

INGREDIENTS
Shortbread
338g plain flour
113g caster sugar
225g cold, unsalted butter
pinch of salt
few drops of vanilla extract

Toffee
100g unsalted butter
100g dark soft brown OR dark muscavado sugar
2 tbsp golden syrup
397g can condensed milk
few drops of vanilla extract

Topping
200g dark chocolate
100g milk chocolate
100g white chocolate

METHOD
Preheat the oven to 180C/160C (Fan)/Gas Mark 4
Grease the baking tin and line with grease-proof paper (the greaseproof paper is optional, but will help to remove the shortbread from the tin making cutting easier. otherwise you can cut it in the tin, but depending on your knife it can be dificult)

Mix together the flour, sugar and salt. Add the butter & vanilla extract and rub it in with your fingers until the mixture forms bread crumbs. You can do this in a mixer/food processor - I like a combination of both, first hands and then mixer to ensure full mixing.
Then, knead the mixture until it forms a smooth biscuit-like dough, and press into the tin evenly. Level the surface with a spatular and prick all over with a fork.
Bake for 25-27 minutes until golden brown.
Leave to cool in the tin.

When the shortbread is cool, move onto the toffee.

Melt the butter and sugar in a pan over a low heat.
Add the syrup and condensed milk, then stir until the mixture comes to the boil.
Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
Spread over the shortbread base and leave to cool.

When the toffee is cool, move onto the chocolate.

Melt the dark chocolate (either in a bowl over a boiling pan of water or in the microwave in intervals) and spread over the toffee - move the tin around to ensure it gets into all corners.
Melt the milk chocolate (in the same way), and then spread over the dark. You can mix the two up slight.
Melt the white chocolate (again, same thing) and then put it on top. You can do feathering, like I have in the photo, or any other kind of design/patterns or nothing at all.

You can swap out any of the chocolates - if you don't want it too complicated, 400g of milk chocolate on top is great, too!


I hope if anyone makes it they enjoy it!

I know Tori recommended it, but if you haven't watched Avatar: The Last Airbender as yet, you should :x3: I'm doing a rewatch after 15 years and I am still blown away by this show :loved:

this show IS AMAZING apparently one of the characters I'm most-like (with the what character are you thing roro posted somewhere) is Ty Lee which is great to me since people have likened my current character to being like her since she's...accidentally flirty?
