5.0 out of 5 stars Summer Essential, 20 May 2004
I had been looking for a blender for some months, juggling price, power, ease of use, ease of cleaning and aesthetics. This particular model caught my eye for having a glass jug and a fantastic retro-spaceage appearance. The spec also seemed up to scratch and so I took the plunge.
The first things I noticed (before ever plugging the unit in) were the feeling of solidity and general build quality, along with the general look of the thing, to which no digitised picture will do full justice. There's a lot to be said for a feel-good factor when unwrapping white goods!
In terms of culinary performance, its main use of the last few sunny days is as a smoothie factory. It happily blends raspberries, strawberries, peaches, yoghurt and anything else I care to throw in to a very smooth consistency, but is surprising easy to get rid of the goo afterwards (I note this has been a complaint in alternative models), encouraging re-use. If I add ice, I can whizz it so fine as to be almost indiscernible apart from the temperature-drop.
The reults are invariably homogenous with the blades angled to circulate the food.
So, it does the job, looks great, feels great and is easy to clean. What more can I say?

5.0 out of 5 stars A voice to make you melt..., 9 Mar. 2002
This review is from: Fade Into You (Audio CD)
The song opens with a warm bassline and oddly haunting acoustic guitar, and brings in a weeping slide guitar, but it's the minute that you hear Hope Sandoval's late-night vocals that you fall in love with this song.
'She Hangs Brightly' from which this single is taken is sometimes a little inaccessible, but the best two songs from it are on this single (the other being 'Five String Serenade'). Both songs are perfect for listening to in the dark (though male listeners might well encounter a slap from their significant others for drifting away with the lovely Hope)
Well worth going for if you want something that is at once sexy and yet makes the hairs on your arms stand up.
