RSVP Potato Ricer

This is my potato ricer ($16). There are many potato ricers, but this one is mine (there are really quite a few to choose from, but this one is both inexpensive and works well).

It is my life. Without me my potato ricer is useless. Without my potato ricer, I cannot make super fluffy, delicious mashed potatoes. I must not fill my potato ricer too full, lest potato squish out the sides. I must wait until the potato has cooled so it does not burn my fingers. I will.

My potato ricer and I know that what counts in making mashed potatoes is to not overwork the potatoes so they become a gluey mass, to not expend too much effort squishing them with a traditional potato masher so that one’s energy is completely spent. We know that it’s the gentle squeezing of the potato through the potato ricer that makes the best mashed potatoes. We will squeeze.

My potato ricer is human, even as I am human, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a cool tool. I have learned its weaknesses (squishing out potatoes on the sides if it is filled too full; hard to squeeze if the potatoes are underdone), its strengths (easily and quickly making silky, smooth, fluffy mashed potatoes; useful for squeezing liquid out of spinach, zucchini, and grated potatoes), its parts (it’s basically a giant plastic garlic press), and its accessories (two metal plates with different hole sizes).

I will keep my potato ricer clean and ready (it’s dishwasher safe) even as I am clean and ready. We will become part of each other. My potato ricer and I are the defenders of decent mashed potatoes. We are the masters of the kitchen. We are the saviors of dinner. So be it, until mashed potatoes are all eaten and there is no more gravy.

what’s it *really* like to study fashion? by i-D

As a new wave of students enrol and apply to fashion college, we team up with 1 Granary – a magazine and website run by the under and postgrads of London’s Central Saint Martins – to find out what makes a good fashion student. We take advice on completing your portfolio and getting an internship. And we gain a better understanding of how to make it in one of the toughest industries to crack, from the students who know it best. i-D Arts and Culture Editor Matthew Whitehouse hosts.

Repeat – Repeats (DSR-X19) by Delsin Records

Repeat – Repeats – Delsin Records (dsr-x19)

https://www.delsinrecords.com/release/6203

a1. End Up
a2. G-Thing
b1. Tuesdays Hot Hit
b2. Lilt-A
c1. Fish Stew
c2. Hurrican Felix
c3. Drifting Sounds Of Wikiki
d1. Deathbed Visions
d2. Tomorrows People

Delsin’s first reissue of 2019 is the album ‘Repeats’, an important techno and IDM record from collaborative outfit Repeat, which originally landed on A13 in 1995. It is presented across both black and limited coloured double vinyl, with all nine original tracks featuring next to a full digital release.

Nineties collective Repeat started out as Mark Broom, Andy Turner and Ed Handley, with Dave Hill joining in later on. Ed and Andy, of course, also started recording as Plaid while still members of Black Dog Productions, with whom they recorded albums closely before and after this one. The friends often hung out at UXB Studios which was based at Mark’s place in London, which says Mark, “was a good meeting point for a lot of us.” Making music together as well as with visitors like Baby Ford and Stasis.

Repeat – later trimmed down to just Mark and Dave – went on to release on the likes of Pure Plastic and Unexplored Beats. The result is a hard to categorise album that breaks all the rules and draws on IDM, techno, ambient, house and electro to make for nine tracks of atmospheric analogue music that still sounds fresh and in a world of its own.

Opener ‘End Up’ is all spluttering hits and thick bass, ‘G-Thing’ is a broken beat odyssey into the cosmos with a killer bassline, while ‘Tuesday’s Hot Hit’ slows the tempo with jumbled percussion and a meandering bassline bringing spooked out vibe. Elsewhere the bustling drums and analogue bass of ‘Lilt’ spluttering kicks and hits of ‘Fish Stew’ are hugely original and off-grid tracks that freely explore rhythm and texture. From there, there are icy future soundtracks and playful bits of electronic funk that, like the album overall, has a unique and unusual charm.

Things are upside-down in LazyTown. Stephanie, an optimistic girl with bright pink hair, comes to live in LazyTown and meets a zany mix of townspeople, including the world’s laziest super-villain, Robbie Rotten. Fortunately for Stephanie, LazyTown is also under the watchful eye of Sportacus, an athletic, super-active, slightly-above-average hero, who runs, jumps, flips and flies to the rescue in his futuristic AirShip. Sportacus always manages to save the day and to help the kids of LazyTown foil Robbie’s latest lazy schemes.

The other kids of LazyTown are inquisitive, adventurous, playful, and like Stephanie, just trying to figure out their own worlds. Each of them has strengths and weaknesses that all kids can identify with Ziggy loves the sweet things in life but struggles to make healthy choices. Stingy has a hard time seeing the benefits of sharing. Pixel is learning how to respect his mind and body by moderating his computer and TV use. Trixie is learning how to make friends by not hurting others and respecting social conventions, and Stephanie is trying to stay true to what feels right for her.

LazyTown is all about promoting a healthy lifestyle for children, in a positive, entertaining and catchy way and is recognized world-wide through channels such as the successful television series, live events and branded consumer products. This way LazyTown encourages kids to be more active and lead healthier lives. We know that LazyTown resonates because raising healthy, well-adjusted children is an objective we share with parents all across the world! There is a lot of different advice out there about how to succeed in raising happy, healthy kids but everyone can agree that having a healthy body, eating a balanced diet and being physically active are excellent ways to start.
