Thirsty Thursday

Light (hah! as if there's any other kind) posting due to things and business and such as. Normal sparse posting will recommence as soon as this beer goes flat:

Also, too: The beer pictured, Ballast Point's "Sculpin" IPA, is actually quite good. Not good enough to live up to its hype, but I don't know that anything could. Tasty though.

For the record

(alternate post title "Truthful Tuesday")

I, your humble host have never:

  • Been in the Army
  • Been in the Navy
  • Been in the Air Force
  • Been in the Marines
  • Been in the Special Forces
  • Been in combat in any capacity whatsoever
  • Thought it would be neat to lie and brag about any of the above
  • Considered the possibilities of career enhancement by lying about any of the above
  • Tried to impress members of the opposite sex by lying about any of the above
  • Lied about any of the above in any way

Y'know, just in case the powers that be need a replacement for Lyin' Williams, or Bill O'Lieree, or that putz in charge of the VA, or any of the other rich serial "misrememberers" out there -- call me.

So, uh, there was a scandal. So sad, we're all terribly devastated here. It's awful, really. Rending of garments, wailing in the streets, dumping out of craft beer pints, ritual flannel sacrifice, etc.

Oh, wait, no it's not. Yeah, so, other than the Oregonian, and Willamette Week newspapers, pretty much nobody I know gives a shit. Everybody I've talked to about this has the following reaction: "Oh, what? Really? Huh. Who's the new guvna?"

The woman pictured here, that's who, and that's where it gets good. Because of Kitzy's stupidity, we actually get a real, honest-to-FSM liberal female, Kate Brown, as Governor. And get this: She's also bisexual. First openly LGBT guvna in the whole damn USA. Woo! Yay Oregon!

So, if that's the outcome of this scandal, I think we need more scandal around here. Sorry Kitz, you were a good guy, that (mostly) did good work, but you went and fucked up. Hope for your sake you don't go to prison, but that's about it.

The Governor is dead, long live The Governor!

I know this show was pretty bad:

But is it really worth going to war over, 40 years later? I mean, The Love Boat seems like a more deserving target, if you think about it.

Bad Brewing Backlash

To follow on from my last item, it looks like I wasn't the only one to take note of the stupid Bud commercial:

Ninkasi (Eugene, Oregon):

Hopstories (Made by videographers from Corvallis! Woo! Featuring lots of different Oregon breweries):

A funny take on "Pumpkin peach ale" from Double Mountain (Hood River, Oregon):

(Dammit -- it's on Facehell -- so no embed for me -- have a linky instead.)

And lastly, a delightful spoof of sappy the "dogs and horses" Bud commercial, from Mason City brewing in Iowa:

Well done peeps, well done.
