Title: Tangents
Post by: Stevie on May 03, 2014, 04:22:04 PM
We as a community are good at going off on tangents. Some, including myself, are guilty more than others.

Let's see how long we can make a thread entirely of tangents. Each post needs to be a tangent to of a previous post.

I am brewing saison with 3711 tomorrow. Going to be a warm 93 with a bit if humidity.

Humidity really sucks. Like the old farts say, "It's not the heat, it's the humidity".  I really hate humidity.       

But I do like tacos pretty well.     ;)

To answer the OP's original question, or at least the question he should have asked, I'll throw in my 2 cents and respond in the following manner. But please keep in mind that, while I think I'm correct about this, though I have been wrong at times in the past, I am certain you will agree. So, if you're like me, and I know I am, there's nothing quite like it. Unless, of course, you have access to something better.

Elvis is okay. John Carpenter made an Elvis movie with Kurt Russell. Not nearly as good as a little movie called John Carpenter's The Thing, which also had Kurt Russell but kicking more ass. Big Trouble In Little China was also pretty stellar. John Carpenter, the brewer, not the director used to work at Golden Road Brewery. I never really thought they had amazing beers. They seem more interested in growing the brand, which is okay I suppose. if you're talking about brands, John Carpenter, the director, should be given some credit for starting a  horror brand with Halloween. The very first one with Jamie Lee Curtis, who is/was as rumor has it, a hermaphrodite.

John Carpenter's Vampires is a criminally underrated horror movie. James Woods was great in it. He's actually a native Rhode Islander. Which is why the high school in Family Guy is called James Woods High. One of the many RI references on the show.
