Overwhelmed [May. 20th, 2007|10:19 am]
Tony Grist

I don't recognise the Bowie references in Life On Mars because when Bowie first appeared I was looking the other way (career, kids, the usual) and I missed him.

And yesterday idahoswede  made a joke about Three Coins In a Fountain and I looked it up on Amazon and realised I hadn't see it and I'd like to

And Amazon were offering it in a package deal with Roman Holiday which- in spite of adoring Audrey Hepburn- I haven't seen either

And- oh sweet Jesus on a barmcake - the world is so full of books and movies and albums I've never read or seen or listened to

And I'm just so ignorant...

So maybe I'll use my "golden years" (ha-bloody-ha) to play catch-up.

Hamburger roll has a soft crust. Kaiser roll has a soft inside but a crustier crust, like a round hoagie or cheesesteak roll if you remember them. What we call "Italian rolls" or "torpedo rolls" but round.

Does Ailz mean that the outside of the barmcake is dusted with flour?

There's a complicating factor. These things have different names according to the part of the country you're in. Barmcake is specifically Northern English. Ask for a barmcake in a London bakery and you'd be met with a blank stare.

I think your Kaiser roll would correspond to our (Northern English) "crusty cob".

Yes, Ailz means that the outside of the barmcake is dusted with flour.
