  1. Apparently I've been sleeping on Sun Worship for way too long http://sunworship.bandcamp.com/ and I assume everyone's found the new Agalloch by now... http://www.npr.org/2014/05/04/308273140/first-listen-agalloch-the-serpent-the-sphere?ft=1&f=10001 (on NPR?! what?)
  2. https://invictusproductions666.bandcamp.com/album/demo-mmxiii Malthusian has been a favorite all winter.
  3. protester apparently the only one getting it. other acceptable references would have been: homeless 'nam vet, wizard, 19th century european viceroy, and so on... also: i feel privileged to have my grammar officially DAO'd.
  4. the last time i shaved was my wedding day in '04. i was nearly 30 years old then. fuck you. i'm also an english professor, so fuck you again.
  5. Taste, Memory--forgotten foods, lost flavors, and why they matter --David Buchanan This after a steady diet of Mark Twain and Herman Melville.
  6. It's good to be back on the east coast. (Also, it only took me 10.3 years to reach 1000 posts.)
  7. Last time I shaved was my wedding day in '04. I lived in the northeast and it got cold as shit in the winter. Spend enough time outside and you'll grow a beard by default and out of necessity/pragmatism. People who make a big deal out of it are either hipsters or bound to shave as soon as someone they think is cool tells them beards are "out" now.
  8. Bummed to hear this morning. RIP Mike Tag... dude was a ripper, hometown hero, and hell of a nice guy. FBM's got a write up as does ESPN. Go smash a bottle and do something new on your bike.
  9. been a minute... as usual. nothing wild as of late, more reactionary cheapies (high life tallboys all day) to the northwest hopfest stuff. But I've been drinking a bunch of the Deschutes seasonal for a good 2 months now: and finally had the Sam Smith Organic Lager, on a whim, and would drink it all day
  10. I get hooked on genre/subject and go a little crazy with it. I've been teaching enviro lit stuff for a while now so it's always something I'm into and working with in some way. I always seem to read something and then go into another that was either "influential" to that book/author or referenced in the text I just read. Still, as an english prof. I'm reading a bunch of shit at the same time...
  11. it's been a minute... some stuff from the last few months: Barry Lopez memoir-ish stuff. Read "Apologia" if nothing else. better than your average attempt at corralling "zen" see above, then reverse it smart smart. the first half (i'm being generous) is tolerable. shit is TERRIBLE after that... he's better at walking than writing. buddy's book... definitely not my style but he's got it locked currently. lots of "fuck. yes!" moments in there. and re: Thoreau. I just (literally yesterday morning) taught some chunks of Journals an
  12. ^^^ This. Had Dogfish Head's Chicory Stout tonight... REALLY good. Full like a solid OG European stout but well balanced with a light finish. Rich but not heavy. Makes me want a legit winter meal to go with.
  13. been sleeping on just about everything lately. end of the semester so now it's catch-up time. a few from the past weeks: Leavenworth Dunkelweizen NB Snow Day DFH Olde School Barleywine (with bonus Xmas tree background) 21st Back In Black (meh) Great Divide Oak-Aged Yeti... /nohipster Pike's Auld Acquaintance Pike's XXXXX Stout Pike's has been impressing me left and right. I always figured them as some tourist trap joint but they put out some solid beers.
