1  UNITED STATES / Minnesota / Re: Unique Thrift? on: July 24, 2008 06:34:31 PM
It's a Unique. If you're at the Unique in New Hope there is a tiny thrift store down the road about a half mile toward 55. It's Arcs Value Village and it's small but totally worth it, I've found a TON of amazing stuff there. (They just got a bunch of vintage tee's in. YES.)
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Blood and guts... I'm in over my head. Help me, please! on: January 20, 2008 08:02:16 PM
I said I would make some props for a show I'm helping out with (Complete Works of Shakespeare Abridged).
Okay so I need to make a pie with a head sticking out of it (for Titus Andronicus parody) I have the pie, it's fabric in a 9" pie tin<- charming by the way.
I need to find a material to make the "head" out of. I was thinking maybe a wig model, but perhaps it will be too big...? and where does one find a styrofoam head??

Also I need to make three things that go over people's hands to make it look like their hands have been chopped off. (Also Titus Andronicus. Happy little Play.) Yeah...

If anyone can help... I would be extremely appreciative. The sooner the better, the show is on Friday.
(tsk tsk, procrastinators...)
3  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / chicken korma?! on: December 17, 2006 04:37:44 PM
i went to edinburgh this summer and got absolutley hooked on chicken korma from this cute little indian takeout place (i ate it almost every day, indian food is addictive).
since i came back to the us, i have been trying and trying to make a decent korma, remaining somewhat unsuccessful.
after my most recent attempt, i am somewhat frustrated, my question is,
does anyone know of a somewhat decent, spicy korma recipe?


4  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Looking for cookie recipes 1 from each state 50 recipes. on: November 27, 2006 05:13:52 PM
What do we have in Minnesota? Lutherans and Nordskies. Can't say I've ever had a good meal prepared by a good Lutheran unless you like cream-of-whatever soup, but here's a Norwegian cookie that's simple and good:
I'm currently in MSP at the moment and someone told me to think about Rosettes?  The cookie with the metal template and frying - what do other Minnesotans think?

In all the time I spent in Minnesota [man I sound like I've lived everywhere don't I?] I've never seen a rosette. The only place I ever saw them were at fairs in Maine, truthfully. For Minnesotan cookies you might think about incorporating the Salted Nut Roll or Nut Goodie [both made by Minneapolis company Pearson's] into some kind of bar. "Bars" are super popular throughout the Dakotas and Minnesota.

i have to agree, in my 17 years living here i have never heard of or seen a rosette. i have often had the peanut roll bar thing though. (((i love bars, i didnt realize that it was a minnesotan thing)))
i actually have a really good recipie that tastes a lot like a salted nut roll, i'll try and find that.
the only other thing i can think of that is just from around here has mainly swedish roots, as everyone here is a scandanavian mutt. i don't quite think that's where you're going, but if you still want a few, i have swedish cookie recipes like you wouldn't beleive...

this sounds really fun!

6  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Little Red Riding Hood Needs A Hood... on: October 24, 2006 06:52:24 PM
my best friend was a "victorious little red" a few years ago
she took a stuffed animal of a wolf and gutted it and sewed it on the inside of her hood, and then left the hood off. if i remember correctly, she also carried a basket with baguettes (goodies for gramma?) and a hatchet. it was halarious.
i think she stole the idea from into the woods by sondheim, not sure.
7  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Really good blood on: October 24, 2006 06:41:35 PM
okay so im sorry if im being repetitious (i didnt read all two pages of fake blood talk)
but i've found that Ben Nye's fake blood is the best, but very runny, so if you just thicken it with a tiny bit of flour, it works pretty well. (and if it's going to be near your mouth, it's mint flavoured. is it just me or is there something very strange about that?)
i havent tried the home made method posted above, but most home methods i've used either reek or stain.

oh and by the way, i do theatre, i dont just have my fav kinds of fake blood...

Totally go for it! It's not to risque at all.
I'm 16 and it would fly at my little midwestern school.
