Lifestyle: Wankered Wednesdays – The Sidecar

It’s that time of the week again and today I bring you The Sidecar. Purportedly invented in France during WW1 by a man who rode to a Parisian bar in a motorcycle sidecar (surprisingly). It’s one of THE classic sour drinks and it’s undergone loads of different variations and changes but one of the most common recipes goes as follows.

You will need: 1 1/2 oz Cognac or Armagnac, or bourbon,1 oz Cointreau or triple sec, 1/2 oz lemon juice

To prepare (another dead easy one): 1. Shove all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and go mad.
2. Pour into a cocktail glass.

Enjoy getting mashed!

Lifestyle: Munch Mondays – Smoked Mackerel Carbonara

Another Monday (well almost, soz) and another dead easy recipe for you to cook. This one is even simpler than the Chilli and much quicker so if you somehow manage to fuck this up then it’s safe to say you shouldn’t even be allowed within 10 feet of a pair of safety scissors let alone dangerous elements such as fire. Now it’s also a bit of a two parter as well, Carbonara sauce is sooo easy to make but also dead cheap in the shops so it’s up to you what you wanna do (bearing in mind the ones in the shop almost always come with bacon in them already, wont work for this recipe unless you fancy a bit of surf and turf.) For the sake of it I’m also gunna tell you how to make the sauce. So first off to make the sauce you will need:

Lifestyle: Stop ACTA

Wasn’t sure whether to put this in Lifestyle or Tech but went for Lifestyle seeing as it could have a massive impact on everyones. You need to see this. If we let them get away with it then what will be next? Freedom of speech? Civil liberties?

Girls: Melanie Iglesias

Nice one Maxim.

Song Of The Moment: K’naan–In The Beginning


Heard this at the end of Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay (after about the 20th time of watching it, dunno how I didn’t notice this song before) and it is such a tune. Very different to what I normally listen to but no less awesome, chill and enjoy.
