“Saved by Zero” by The Fixx – Music Review

Smooth aftertaste. “Saved by Zero” is the 1983 single off The Fixx’s album Reach the Beach. I actually have this album on vinyl, and it’s quite enjoyable. There’s a few other songs I’ll probably get to at some point in future reviews. “Saved by Zero” is a very eerie-toned minimalist piece. The phrase “Saved by Zero”…

Ehrmann Grand Dessert Chocolate Creme Review

Hi flock! Today I’m review Ehrmann’s Grand Dessert cups in the chocolate creme & whipped cream flavor. The Grand Dessert is somewhere between a chocolate mousse and a pudding. While not foamy, the chocolate base is quite light. The whipped cream on top is real, and is a nice addition. If you’re looking for a…

“Tainted Love” by Soft Cell Music Review

Synthy synthy synth synth I swear, this is one of those 80s songs that everyone names when naming 80s songs, which is weird since the song was written in the 60s. Soft Cell took the song to the mainstream in the UK in ’81, and the US in ’82, and brought with it the trend…

Tops Strawberry Cake Review

Tops Friendly Markets makes an excellent cake. Tops’ strawberry cake is basically a strawberry shortcake on normal yellow cake. It is incredibly delicious.  The whipped cream is my favorite part: it just makes the whole thing work. The yellow cake is moist, and so much better than regular shortcake. This is one of my favorite…
