• Where did this week go??
    It's been a busy week with a lot going on for me with some work stuff and family commitments. I never got a chance to get some more beer for the fridge! I was reminded of that when I went to get one before bed last night (was heading to bed early since I had to fill in for Craig this morning. We'll blame him).

  • Police in Brooklyn have caught a serial robber who’d been on a crime spree with a glue gun. Cops responded to a call of the masked suspect who they spotted walking into a bubble tea shop. The police followed him and noticed the suspect hand a woman working inside the shop a backpack. As she filled the bag, police approached the suspect who’d been holding a black object in his hand that looked like a handgun. The suspect then ran to the back of the store, but police nabbed him in the bathroom. The gun turned out to be a hot glue gun wrapped in black tape. The man has been identified as Gregory Price and he’s facing charges including robbery, criminal possession of a weapon, menacing, tampering with physical evidence, and resisting arrest.

    As you are aware, I prefer a good stout. Roasted malts, a charred nut flavor and usually some sort of chocolate note. There’s a lot of flavor in a good stout. To me, it’s more interesting as subtle flavors always seem to present themselves at different times during the drinking process.

  • I'm not sold on this..... yet.
    As a vinyl guy and, as the great Joe Walsh sang, "I'm An Analog Man", this is a little hard to swallow. While I get the idea and technology behind it, being that it is a digital master being laser cut into a disc (read the article; it says it probably won't be the same chemicals as what makes up vinyl), it would have to be a completely new mastering process, as well.

  • I remember getting this on VHS and watching it over and over again. Eventually, I ruined it. However, several years ago, I managed to find it again on ebay and burned it to DVD so I could watch it over and over again and again!
