  • » Beer Review: Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier!

    • Or, if you prefer, Original Schlenkerla Smokebeer. I find the original German to be both more fun to say, and to not sound as stupid as “smokebeer” even if that’s just a direct translation of rauchbier. The website for the Schlenkerla Brewery has this to say about their fine rauchbier: The connoisseur drinks it slowly […]

  • » Beer Review: Boddingtons Pub Ale

    • You’ve got to get some Boddies down thee, you’ve been where you shouldn’t, You’ve got to get some ale inside thee, Coz you’re a fucking cunt. Those brilliant lyrics are from the Macc Lads’ delightful ditty “Boddies”.  In fact, Boddingtons is mentioned something like a thousand times on the two albums by the Macc Lads […]

    • Steven Brust is awesome – he’s most well-known for his bread and butter, a series of novels loosely based on Hungarian folklore set in the fantasy world of Dragaera, but when he ventures outside that realm he inevitably takes a wonderful concept and executes it perfectly. Cowboy Feng’s Space Bar and Grille is no exception. […]

  • » Review: IN BOCCA AL LUPO by Murder By Death

    • For the most part, these reviews are going to be positive. I’ll warn you now, I don’t see any point in pointing out mediocrity to you. If a project is so fucking bad you need to be saved from experiencing it, I’ll throw that up here too. But mostly, if a project is so fucking […]

  • » Review: THE PROPOSITION by John Hillcoat, Nick Cave

    • Here goes; this is the first film review for the site. There will be many, many, many more. Because I like to write about movies and music, and errr… possibly people like to read about them. This first one was a great flick; there’s some good drunk scenes, as well. Read on for the whole […]
