Skip forward to the 4:04 mark for a description of a “hipster” (actually a beatnik).  I included the whole thing because the Max Roach Quintet’s performance is smokin’.  I didn’t what the hilarity of the “beatniks” to overshadow it.

In 1977, Rolling Stone magazine celebrated their 10th anniversary with a TV special featuring batshit Broadway style literalizations of Beatles songs.

It is amazing.

This is one in maybe 10,000 blog entries that I read that actually makes me feel smarter.  Even if beer or wine is  your thing, read this article.  It’s a long read, but well worth it.

I was especially amused about the scam Whistle Pig had going.  That stuff is pushed around here as though it is the pinnacle of distilling.


I think in the back of every Whiskey Geeks mind is the dream to own that cool distillery that people will line up for outside stores for it’s bottles. The sad truth is that it takes a chunk of your lifetime, millions of dollars and lot of skill and patience to have any chance.

whenever i see these post-apocalyptic films set in the USA where everyone is pretty much just killing each other with no mention of other nations i always just assume that the rest of the world is fine and has learnt how to resume life as normal

While I have some minor qualms with the technical execution of this trailer, I love the concept of this documentary and I suspect it will resonate with a lot of folks.  We all have an uncle, dad, mom, high school buddy or sibling that we knew as apolitical and fun loving, but has gone off the deep end from too much talk radio/TV.  This documentary explores that phenomenon.  I think the film makers are a looking for funds to finish and distribute it.

I once recorded with Dave (who moved to Chicago to found Hope Street Recordings).  It’s cool to see that his work as an engineer is even more ambitious and interesting.
