Supporting a small-town brewery on the coast that got walloped by Hurricane Michael last year.
There’s a state forest called Tate’s Hell between here and there.
Tate's Helles reminded me of a note I’ve had floating around in drafts for a while; figured I’d dust it off and publish it. A little Dave Letterman fanfic.
Okay, folks, welcome back to the show. Let’s open it up, Paul…
[pretaped Top Ten intro rolls]
Here we go. Paul, some beer music, please… it’s time for Top Ten 1980s Pop Music Beers!
[applause, laughter, attempted oompah music]
That’s right, 1980s beers, to do with the popular music here we go number 10… ”Hop for Teacher!”
Number 9… ”Bock Lobster!”
Number 8… ”Helles for Children!”
[smattering of applause, sounds of confusion]
Number 7… ”Gosebusters! Goooooosebusters!”
They like those Gose Busters, eh Will? Number 6… Paul do you know about this one? ”What About Mead? Mead! What About MEAD!”
Number 5… Number 5… ”Weisse It Always This Way.” Actually I think that’s from the 70s. Paul?
[Paul nods, that’s a 70s tune.]
Number 4! Number 4. ”You Bitter You Bet!”
Number 3… ”A New Saison!”
[smattering of applause]
Number 2. Number twooooooo. ”Will Your Anchor Steam Hold?”
Oh, folks, I’m sorry. That’s a Top Ten song from EIGHTEEN EIGHTY-TWO! 1882!
And the Number One 1980s pop music beer…

Saw a review of The Revenge of Analog & went to the Goodreads iOS app to add it to my ’Want to Read’ list. Typing with 1 finger (b/c I had a tuna sam in the other hand), their autocomplete gave me a couple of eye-opening suggestions when I was 2 letters short of the complete title. 📚🍑
Somebody wake up Manton! Code Brown!
Seen a couple of articles lately about spam overwhelming the Keybase app; I can’t say I’ve seen any, but for at least a couple of years I’ve been
bewildered at the number of accounts that are pretty obviously trolls/bots — mostly accounts with over-the-top ”patriotism”-related handles.
Then they all disappeared, maybe 6 months ago. As if the troll farms bet hard on Keybase, spent a lot of time building up an army of accounts to spread phony messages… but Keybase never took off with normals, so it was all a waste.
clean up all your old
wipe-modules. h/t to @wesbos on Twitter & SyntaxFM for mentioning the idea.
Today’s word is
verse but I’m a long way from poetry at the moment.
”It’s all in the
wrist” has been in plenty of movies, but I always think of Jeff Bridges in front of one of his arcade games, in Tron. So cheesy, so good.
I hate to
knock the people at Stanley, but when I’m deciding between a 5-oz and 8-oz flask (to give my kid as a stocking stuffer), the chart of ”10 liter to 60 liter backpacks” is not really great.
