Well, I’m back from vacation. Two weeks in Scotland, with visits to six distilleries & one round of golf at Carnoustie. I hope to create a “Boots on the Ground” about the whole thing, but first I have to remember how WordPress works.

Here’s a fun way to get your wife upset on vacation:

Scottish Bartender: What’ll you have?

BGR: A pint, and a cider, please.

SB: So, where in America are you from?

BGR: Actually, we’re Canadian.

SB: Oh, I’m sorry.

BGR: Don’t worry – I’m sure you English folks get that all the time.

WineWife: ROB!

Thanks to everyone who covered in my absence.

Just a reminder, Sharp Objects is fantastic.
I hope the finale next week lives up to the previous episodes.

For today, I’m pretty damned sick of thunderstorms and not having any electricity. We got more storms rolling in right now in fact and I swear to god if the power goes out again I’m gonna….

/power goes out again

Oooh, what was your favorite distillery?

Senor Weaselo

And now, a page from Senor’s Musician Memoirs! I am currently eating a BK double in my car after my gig because the Elevation Burger closed at 9, we got out at 9:30, I knew it was still open, and the only thing I ate during the three minutes I had to shovel food in my mouth during the mid-cocktail hour break was a piece of over cooked ribeye, some rice, and a bite of what I thought was going to be a nice light flaky biscuit but was some other crap.

Who won? I’m assuming Rousey.

Hey! The season finale of DuckTales is on tonight!

I had that game for Nintendo as a youth. It was excellent.

I heard they’ll be playing the “Moon Theme” at the end. I’m mostly here for that.

Yeah, like the Series Premiere, this Season Finale is better than it has any right to be.

You don’t have to turn in your man card. Just give me your credit card information instead.

Scotland is for sure on the bucket list. Tried to make it a thing in December, but were only in London for less than a week so the time wouldnt work out.

I’m saving some money up to go to japan to watch the olympics and see Tokyo a bit.

ballsofsteelandfury

Tokyo is awesome! You will love it.

ballsofsteelandfury

Scotland is the most beautiful and coldest fucking place I’ve been to on earth.

litre_cola

I loved my time living there. I would go back in a heartbeat. Stupid responsibilities, plus the hotel that I worked at is now owned by President Cheeto.

ballsofsteelandfury

They also have the warmest coolest people.

I’ve watched them both. “Touch of Evil” is far superior to “Citizen Kane”.

/come at me

A lot of those old timey movies are incredibly overrated. Casablanca, I’m looking in your direction

herodotus450
herodotus450

Yeah did you know some of them don’t even have special effects? BORING.
/I keed I keed

litre_cola

Thank you for this taek.

scotchnaut

There’s a very interesting essay out there by Umberto Eco regarding the popularity of Casablanca-his argument is that the movie embraced shit-tons of cliches and that’s why it has been so popular.

/that same argument doesn’t hold the least bit of water as far as “Touch of Evil” is concerned

Umberto Eco is overrated.

Can’t wait to hear about Carnoustie. I hope there was high winds.

You know, I’m okay with him defending Trump (because that’s his job as his attorney and you’re supposed to put forth the same effort for all clients, guilty or innocent), but seeing how Rudy Giuliani defends Trump and what he says makes me wish he would’ve lost control of NY City after the 9/11 Attacks and his poor leadership during the crisis would’ve caused the city to descend into a Old Testament cesspool of rioting, death, despair and doom.

So basically the city would’ve stayed the same, but Rudy wouldn’t have left office in ’01 in near-mythical herodom.

So… back to the ‘70s and ‘80s?

The opening scene from “Touch of Evil” (1958) Are you fucking kidding me?

rockingdog

has this been remade yet?

litre_cola

Rarely am I excited about an album release but I start vacation on Friday and have to drive 8 hours so this will be very welcome.

ballsofsteelandfury

You Canadians love to drive long distances…

litre_cola

Driving in to fire country. Normally stunning lakes in the mountains but right now it is basically a hot box.

ballsofsteelandfury

Damn. Be safe!

Redshirt

Yeah. If you can be safe and take a roadtrip detour. Its better to take a day and be safe, than risk a sudden change of wind and us wondering what happened to you.

Wakezilla

Where Litre and I live, yeah, you have to drive a long way to get anywhere. That’s what I miss about Vancouver.

litre_cola

If you want to avoid tourists in Banff and Lake Louise. Which of course we do.

Wakezilla

Damn right!

Though, I may have to make the sacrifice with Lake Louise. It really is gorgeous.

found a funny:
was just talking about how there should be one of those “A House Divided” sports welcome mats where they’re both the same team. it’s just an unhappy marriage is all

litre_cola

I just saw my neighbours breast. She was unpacking her tent on the lawn in a very loose tank top and bent over and full boob was on display. She is mid twenties and very good looking. She just looked at me and said oops and smiled.

Boom chicka wah wah.

Hot Neighbour (with boob hanging out obviously): Oops
Litre_cola: Ummm, is everything OK?
Hot Neighbour: Well, I’ve been trying to get this tent up but I think they didn’t give me enough poles. I don’t suppose that YOU have a spare pole you could give me do you?
Litre_cola: Well, actually…now that you mention it….
Mrs. Litre_cola: Get your ass back inside right this minute!!!!!!
Litre_cola: YES DEAR!!!!!!

ballsofsteelandfury

You forgot the Canadian ending where everyone says Sorry.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Hehehe

litre_cola

Me: I am sorry for being so swarthy and sexual honey.

Mrs. Cola : i am sorry I married a jackass

theeWeeBabySeamus

Get ’em both high on your legal weed then see what happens. You might get a threesome.

Or a divorce, fair warning.

litre_cola

Decilitre! Hold Daddy’s bong and learn a thing or two.

Redshirt

Or you could pull a Friends’ Alternate Universe and make your wife find out she’s a lesbian.

ballsofsteelandfury

Did you say, “Thank you!”

Redshirt

I might have seen a customer’s breast in the Drive Thru lane at McDonalds. She was 300 lb and wearing an untied mumu. Due to the curvature, I think it was her boob, but I’m not sure.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Sounds like backfat to me.

Wakezilla

I’m eagerly looking forward to that BoTG!

litre_cola

For my vasectomy on Weds? You’re a weird guy Ballsy.

yeah right

Try to ignore the smell when they are soldering your nutsack.

Best decision I ever made.

litre_cola

I hear that and the smoke are unnerving.

yeah right

It’s quick, relatively painless and a pretty quick recovery.
