Song of the Day: Paul Banks “The Base”

I am a massive Interpol fan. The first time I heard Turn on the Bright Lights I felt like someone had knocked my naive music self into a different realm of sound. So of course when Paul Banks came out of his Julian Plenti shell with a 10 year anniversary celebration for TOTBL under his belt and a new solo project, I took notice!

The Base is the first single off of Bank’s second solo effort, aptly titled Banks, scheduled for an October 22nd release. Take a listen and soak in the musical yumminess that is Mr. Paul Banks!

Happy Listening!

Whether it be stock full of clams or a basic corn chowder, there’s something so comforting about that creamy bowl of goodness. The beauty of chowder is that it doesn’t have to be made with cream, and I recently made the best Manhattan Style Chowder I have ever had!

I’m sure it doesn’t come as a surprise that I’m addicted to Food Network. If ESPN isn’t on the tube, it is most definitely set on the food channel. Being from the south I feel the most connected to Bobby Flay’s food. His take on southern cuisine is pure heaven to my taste buds.

A recent episode of Throwdown had him challenging a Brooklyn native and his Manhattan Fish Chowder. Matt, being the lover of chowder that he is, fell in love with the recipe Bobby Flay created and insisted I make it for his birthday. He had never had a tomato based chowder before and wanted to compare it to the creamy favorite. The only problem was, the recipe isn’t posted anywhere online. Continue reading
