    Question about OLED TV

    I don't know which one you're looking at, but I always consult rtings.com when I'm looking at TVs. Their reviews are very thorough.

    Weirdest music videos

    @Jumbo, you might be interested into this look behind-the-scenes of Napalm Records signing an act to a record deal: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jc7q7EYREu8 The music video from the resulting album: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HR6kOHccYRY

    Weirdest music videos

    Napalm Records does seem to attract bands that don't take themselves too seriously. Christopher Bowes himself is an oddball genius. That song, by the way, was written specifically with the intent of being able to mash it up with Lady Gaga's Telephone (hence the telephone hat he wears early in the video). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKF2oc9h3o4 (posted as link since it doesn't apply directly to the topic of the thread as it is not a weird music video)

    Music is great now. The problem isn't the music that's available, it's what is pushed through the traditional avenues. If you look hard enough, I'm sure you'll be able to find something.

    Let's not turn this thread into another Own3d thread. A picture or vid here and there can be fun, but it's starting to get out of hand.

    While you're at it, you should ask if they want to get the Tribal Wars gang back together.

    Once they make the bullet-proof version, you'll be able to justify the cost.

    Could have been a lot weirder for a song about a guy who's going to be taken to an insane asylum.

  20. Oh man, I had the hardest time finding that clip a few years ago. I would've pranked someone to death with a tire iron to find it!

    To the mattresses!

    I'll tell you what I told the judge: "I'd like to represent myself. How hard can it be?" -posted from a lumpy-ass mattress in cell block 26
  22. I really enjoyed Patriot, but I honestly didn't know it was ever expected to get a third season. Seemed like it told the story it wanted to in those two seasons with no reason to expect a third.

    The Liquor Thread

    We have a beer, thread, and a quick search didn't come up with an equivalent for liquor, so I figured I'd get one rolling. If there's already a thread related to this... well I've been drinking Whiskey, give me a break. Anyways, let's get started. I've been getting into Whiskey the past year or so. Went to a Whiskey tasting at some point last year and found that I'm rather fond of the single-malt Scotches, but they're a bit rich for me at this point in my career. I wish I'd had a more refined palette while I was still in Texas, as I'd tried some of the locals in Rebecca Creek, Swift, and Ranger Creek (the last one being directly at their distiller/brewery in San Antonio; only had a couple samples of a few of their whiskeys; most of their offerings were in beer form, which was very good--I was a big fan of la Bestia), but I can't give great reviews on them as I was still in the beginnings of my journey into Whiskey at the time. Now I have a bit more of a feel for what I like. Personally, I'm a fan of Ezra Brooks as far as bargain-basement whiskey goes. $13 for a 750ml bottle and it's right up there with Jack Daniels and the like. I've also found it to be great in Kentucky Screwdrivers as the orange juice manages to mask its bite and really draws out the smokiness hiding within leaving you with pretty much a smokey orange juice. I just picked up a bottle of Monkey Shoulder and I've been impressed with what it has to offer as a blended Scotch at a reasonable price. Unlike many blended whiskeys, it doesn't use any Grain Neutral Spirits to cut it, but rather is purely a blend of three Speyside Scotches; off the top of my head I only recall Glenfidditch being among the blend. For $30, it's definitely worth a try, I think, if you like Scotch. I had a couple glasses of Breckenridge a few weeks ago, and it really impressed me. It was up against Blanton's, which I was also sampling at the time. While Blanton's was the bigger name and the more expensive Bourbon, Breckenridge was the one that came out on top. It just had a bit more flavor going for it. As for what helped spur the creation of this thread (beyond the Monkey Shoulder and Ezra I've been sipping tonight), I've recently come into possession (a gift from my brother) of a Golden Oak Barrel, which is a hand-coopered miniature oak barrel for ageing liquor yourself. I decided to give it a try starting with the cheap stuff: Ezra Brooks. I left half a bottle in there for two weeks, while the other half remained in the bottle. After the two weeks, I administered a blind taste test between the barrel aged bourbon and what remained in the bottle. The results were pretty impressive. The bourbon aged in that little oak barrel was infused with notes of vanilla, and the harsh bite of cheap liquor has been mellowed away. I've seen some recipes from Golden Oaks that involves mixing a few liquors in the barrel along with vanilla beans and cinnamon that I might have to start trying out.
  24. Brings me back to when we blew a few limbs off of some trees at a friend's farmhouse my means of shooting tannerite jars nestled in them. Good times.
