  1. Good luck!
  2. Holy shit! That's awesome. Xray and I once took the tour at Highland Park over in Scotland and our guide told us stories about dipping small empty bottles into barrels to snag tastes for himself as a younger, but didn't offer to pull any samples for us on the spot. Sigh.
  3. Exercise caution if you do get to eat them. I hear they can make you violent.
  4. Me three! Just started this morning and and loving it so far.
  5. Well, she named her car Brad. She LOVED Brad. And then she totaled him.
  6. Digging the newest Menzingers album. It's pretty straight up Springsteen-influenced pop punk in the vein of groups like Gaslight Anthem -- nothing new, but solid songs played well. I feel like the same is true about their latest video for the album's title track, "After the Party". It's a compressed story of a relationship from the wild and fun early days to some dark turns done with no dialogue, but the acting, filming, and editing is all done really well without being showy. AND they do a better job than most of fitting footage of the band playing into the storyline. Also playing the fuck out of Run the Jewels, because they've suited my mood for the past two months and four days perfectly. Their new video for "Legend Has It" is great. Oh, and Oddisee has a new album out, which is always a reason for joy in my world. Somehow I missed out on him putting out a new video last week, for "NNGE" off the new album. OLD BAY!
  7. ...possibly because people are talking about it in a dedicated UK Politics thread.
  8. That's one of those albums that works as an instant mood lifter for me. Doesn't matter how crappy my day has been, I put that on and I'm smiling less than halfway into "Second Hand News".
  9. No idea. Once I found out graduates didn't get to walk, I didn't look any further into it.
  10. What the heck, I'm in. Chrome crashed in the middle of my first attempt to complete the bracket. I'm looking at it as adding an extra level of randomness.
  11. YES! ALL THE RIBOFLAVIN!
  12. YES! ALL THE BOURBON!
  13. I went to my high school and undergraduate graduation ceremonies, both out of familial duty. When I found out the graduation for my Masters program was held at Radio City Music Hall, I thought about going just so I could say I'd been on stage there. Then I found out you were pretty much stuck in your seat the entire time, so I skipped it.
  14. I'VE BEEN SAVING ALL THIS GARBAGE JUST TO FUEL THE FLUX CAPACITOR!!!!
  15. Never had it. Tried their moonshine and their standard whiskey, both of which were alright.
