Plain and simple: This is good beer. This is how I like my brew to taste, look, and pack a punch. Just the smell alone, once I cracked the cap off, was almost enough to convince me that this was a quality brew. Sadly, I’ve had this in my fridge for way too long. And although this label warns repeatedly about how this is not a beer that should be ‘aged’ and that drinking it ‘fresh’ is key, I managed to overlook it more than a few times while looking for my next drink to review. I blame it mostly on the fact that this little guy comes in a ‘smaller than usual’ bottle that is just a tiny bit over a pint. When placed next to any 22oz. bottle, it’s easy to overlook. I have to admit though, what this ale lacks in stature, it more than makes up for in flavor and overall booyow. This is something that any hop-head should rush out and taste. Also, with a hefty 8% alcohol content, this shizzle will keep that belly warm during the cold Winters. Overall, I have to say that this is just delicious, and is exactly what I was hoping for when I reached for it. Hoppy as hell, and smooth as silk. Represent.

A friend of mine put me on to this guy. Brian Dettmer takes old un-used items that might other wise land in the trash, and creates art. The idea itself isn’t anything new, but what this guy is bringing to the table is. I especially like the use of old tapes.No comments
This is a video done in support of DJ Vinroc’s album. It gives an insight into just how a beat is made on an mpc 2500 and a turntable. Oh yeah give it a minute it is an “artsy” video.
Hehehe….I thought this was pretty funny…so here you go.
I will tell you what Ken Block, half owner of DC SHOE CO does:
gym_kha_na – pronounced jim-kah-nuh
Now I’m sure, as I was, you have a very confused look on your face. What the hell is GYMKHANA? well it is as follows:
Gymkhana is about “control”. Gymkhana is primarily done on an open paved field or parking lot. The course is laid out with cones in key points to navigate to. The obstacle will often consist of slaloms, 180 degree turns, 360 degree turns, figure 8s, and some time parking boxes. The drivers goals is the get through the course as fast a possible with the least amount of mistakes. Gymkhana requires strong mental concentration and memorizing of the track, where you have to go and do next. The driver will use many techniques to effectively go through a course. Acceleration, braking, drifting & grip driving are all necessary for Gymkhana.
So it looks to me like Ken Block takes his free time and money and run’s around doing this. MUST BE NICE.
GO KEN GO…..
