[Finca Flichman] Misterio Malbec 2013

My drink of choice is a fine Scotch but as the other reviews show I also occasionally imbibe beer, cider, and other liquid poisons. Some evenings or with red meat, I'll check out a red wine. I'm not an expert or even a true connoisseur. Consider me more or a lay man who likes to share and discuss.

[Labatt] Michelob Ultra

michelob ultra

I'm not sure how related this is to the old (one of the original mainstream) low-carb Molson Ultra which has very similar stats (2.5 grams of carbs instead of 2.6 and such). The Ultra part uses the same font to my eyes on both and Michelob came out with this after Molson stopped. As well, while Michelob is a company from the United States, in Canada it's brewed by Labatt. I can only go by the Canadian version at this time. Keep in mind that there are different rules and regulations for beer in the U.S. than in Canada and the same brand can taste very different between the two countries.

Post 5e Session Thoughts on Gaming

Castles & Crusades seemed to be an attempt to take D&D3e players into a AD&D1e style without the risks of low level play normally associated with old-school gaming. It cashed in on Gary Gygax and was a very useful tool to wean people from the raging behemoth that was 3e and open them to new ideas.

Hypo-Glycemia

What it's like to have a hypo-glycemic attack?

At first you feel weak and then you realize you're confused and can't focus. Time slips away as the shakes shatter your will. Sometimes you even lose the ability to speak and can just make gestures based on your limited awareness. You desperately put your hand to your mouth, hopefully alerting someone that you need sugar.

[Beau's] Lug•Tread Lagered Ale (Ontario, Canada)

5.2% alc./vol. 600ml brown bottle
Ice cold in a glass.

The brown bottle has a farm tractor molded into it adding to the rustic effect of the labeling which encourages you to see it as Organic.

It pours out a thick creamy head that persists as you admire it's amber colour and sweet smell. With heavy carbonation and a light lingering flavour Lug•Tread is an intriguing mix of heavy and crisp that balances the sweet full body of an Ale with the light crispness of a Lager.

This is a refreshing beer that sits comfortably.

47 Ronin

I just finished watching the 2013 film, 47 Ronin.

I thought this movie stood up very well. The last time I dealt with a rendition of this story was in 2005 with the graphic novel Roninhood of the 47 Samurai. This movie brings the story more directly into the mainstream while seeming to keep the heart of it intact.

Four Parts of a Person

Introspectively you can break yourself down into four basic parts.

BODY
The body is muscles, valves, blood flow, and also your brain. It is the “embodiment” of your physical and mental potential including your capacity to learn. It's what's physical and is connected to your genetics.

HEART
Your heart is a ball of emotion, which like a sun, lashes out with solar flares from time to time. It is a highly reactive force that wafts left and right, up and down.

Alexander Keith's Original Cider

Keith's Cider

Alexander Keith's Original Cider
473ml Tall Boy Can; 5.5% alc/vol
Served ice cold.

A very strong apple wine scent. almost transparent with just a little pale yellow trying to be seen. Very little head. Smooth with almost no carbonation. It starts sweet and finishes with a carmalizing of the tongue and a touch of bitterness in your throat. The body is fairly heavy but there isn't much flavour. After awhile most everything else fades until all you taste is apple.
