This is the worst blog ever.

This blog is terrible…I don’t even read it. This means I don’t even write it. This is probably why it sucks.
This entry is all kinds of bad too.
Also it’s written out of spite and anger.
(as a disclaimer I should let it be known I’m probably mad at old news.)
Neither of which lead to excellent journalism, they do, however, make for excellent drinking buddies on Tuesday nights.

I guess I should start explaining things. This post is half written to spite Andrew, why? Because due to my lack of motivation he seems bothered that I never update. My response don’t up date when he asks me to and then update when he least expects it.
Now that that bit of business is taken care of on to the things I’m angry at.
First
Today on the ride home I heard a new Cam’ron song. This made me very excited at first as Killa Cam is (well used to be) pretty awesome, but this new song is just plain old garbage. It is titled “cookies and apple juice” which if that’s not bothersome (and disgusting) enough there is a line that goes
“milk milk lemonade round the corner fudge is made
cookies with some apple juice I’m just try to get paid”
This is the most retarded thing I’ve heard in a while.

Don’t get me wrong I still think Cam is pretty damn cool and when crime pays comes out ill probably wind up with it. But I just can’t get over that line for the life of me. The whole song really isn’t that terrible; the subject matter really isn’t that out there (although some of its verging on gross). And the beats pretty catchy, but seriously wtf? It’s known that you like throwing children’s rhymes into your songs but that’s just ridiculous.
I miss hip-hop…
One of our followers (Andrew’s) avatar scares me…
On to the second thing that bothers me.
Arlen Specter. Well actually not him specifically, but the people who are mad at him. One of the great things about this country is the ability to follow your political beliefs, and though I don’t necessarily support the party he has joined I do support his right to join it. If he feels he could better represent his constituents as a democrat then more power to him. If he can’t then they always have the option of not voting for him next time around. And even as a republican he only voted with you 65.3% of the time. Which while that is over half the time is a pretty big dissidence if you stop and think about it considering some of those votes were things like “To ensure that the general public has full access to our national parks and to promote the health and safety of all visitors and employees of the National Park Service.”
To see a full voting records go here http://projects.washingtonpost.com/congress/members/s000709/votes/
It even says how his former and current party would have liked him to have voted.

The final thing I’m angry at is the whole swine flu mess. Yes you should be concerned. Very concerned. Like remember to wash your hands before eating and after going to the bathroom concerned. And for those who have and will die I am sad. Yes influenza is a terrible thing but it happens every year, and yes this is a particularly vicious strain, but it is not unheard of. I’m sure some of your parents (or maybe parents parents) remember the last time the swine flu came around. People got sick, some people died. But as a culture we survived. Quit acting like every time a group of people get sick it’s the end of the world. Does anyone remember when they found cholera in the gulf of Mexico? Probably not but that happened within our lifetimes. Or even more recently Avian flu? During the whole avian flu scare everyone was convinced that in a few days someone would cough on someone in a mall and overnight everyone would keel over dead. Shortly after that scare I read a whole mess of blogs and articles that insinuated that the Avian flu was nothing more than a diversion tactic taken by our former president to distract the media and public from the blunders being made overseas. And now I’ve read more than a few reports clamming that the current outbreak is his fault as well. All I really have to say about this is that influenza happens. It’s part of nature, and as much as I hate nature we are all a part of it and you pretty much just have to deal with it. Oh but as an added bonus for being human, this flu is avoidable with proper hygiene and common sense. And even if you do get it, treatable.
So bam quit bitching and go on with your lives…just wash your hands and don’t let people cough on you, you perverts.
So I just learned something and figured I would share.
Jimmy carter put solar panels on the white house
Ronald Reagan had them pulled back down
And during the Bush administration they went back up.
I just gave you all an interesting factoid!

Now for another one. Rising moon (the beer) is terrible. Don’t drink it.
Im out.
-Kaze.
p.s. like how I tossed that beer review in at the end?

I know what you've been thinking... "It's been days since either Kaze or Andy posted! What ever will I do?". Well fear not because I'm here to save the day! With an all new blog all about everything and nothing!

Have you ever had a tick in a weird place? If you have that sucks and I'm sorry.

Does anyone really want to see Toy Story 3? How about Men in Black 3? No? Well how about Ghost Busters 3? Still no? Well Disney and Sony say you do and dammit you will enjoy it!



Have you ever been on the train and looked around? I often wonder if certain people i see are absolutely crazy. Or is it just me? Deep stuff I know, but you know you've thought about it before. What if the alleged crazy person sees something that the rest of the world doesn't? And what if that something is the right something? And what if that right something is Tupac riding bicycles backwards?! If you don't believe me check out this link : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=42tioFCpJGw&feature=relat

Green Day has a new album coming out soon. From whats leaked so far its going to be amazing. That is all.

Love,
Andy

Kaze should not be allowed on the internet.

Dear Lilly Allen,
Your new Cd is in fact terrible, and a massive let down to those of us whom enjoyed your first. While I understand that you as an artist feel that you need to go into new exciting directions or what have you. Boring is not exciting; neither is predictable, slow, or humdrum. Those are all words that actually mean the same thing, that I am disappointed. The allure of your first CD that, however, misguided you were upbeat, and rebelling in a punky-brewster sort of way. I found the alluring, and while I still find your accent attractive, the slow semi-melodic over produced beats in the first half of your album does nothing for me. And while I’m happy for your CD personality for finding love in a friend, does the song really have to go on for three magillion hours? While I will still most likely buy your next cd I do ask that you try harder to not suck…I’m not asking you to be edgy for edgys sake, but for the love of god sound like you had fun making the CD.
That is all.
-Kaze
P.S. I like that the CD is pink…

Ok, I’m done with my little letter, now on to the content normal sane people would enjoy…actually I take that back.
Now onto the content I enjoy.
I have been really into Lyrics Born recently for a variety of reasons. The main one being that he is pretty damn good. It also helps that he is a jap, has a funky sort of sound, and well is pretty damn awesome all around. For those of you who have not heard him but are into hip hop I strongly recommend looking him up. Cut Chemist as well; in fact go listen to all of the Soul Sides stuff.
To continue the stream of me talking about things no one will care about I rented twilight, and before you get angry (or excited as the case may be) I didn’t actually watch it I couldn’t bring myself to do it. Not to say that I’m to manly or something like that, but more that I actually read the back of it after getting home from my friendly neighborhood video store, and realized what it was about. Needless to say it really didn’t sound like my cup of tea. All of which brings me to what happened to the movies of our childhood? Even the stories with romance in them had something for everyone. Take Princess Bride for example. Excellent movie, has a love story as a central theme, but you know what else it has? Pirates (well a pirate), and giants (once again cingular), albinos who try to act tough, wizards who dispense chocolate, six fingered men, and ROUSs! Or willow, there is a love story in there but there is also so much more!
Yesterday a few of us went to Buffalo Wild Wings. Wings places seem to be plentiful and range from delicious to dismal. While Hooters seems like it will always have a special place in my heart, BWW (or BDubs as Chris calls it) defiantly will gain a spot in rotation. The first thing I noticed about BWW was the wait, this was actually our second attempt at hitting the new wings place the first resulting in a Glory Days trip (very rarely is food worth and hour and a half wait). This time around there was only a half an hour long line, which really wasn’t that bad given that I was in the company of all but one of my best friends. The second thing I noticed is that this place is loud, while this is to be expected for a bar, this place was far louder than a normal sports bar. Again a pretty good sign, also welcomed the massive tap list which was unfortunately lacking yuengling, but that can be forgiven. As for food appetizers were delicious, as were wings. The asian zingers were particularly tasty, although the drums were slightly larger than I would like. (in my opinion a good wing should be only slightly larger than my thumb.) All in all, however, I would strongly recommend a visit to Buffalo Wild Wings.
While I was there I asked the waitress for a recommended drink; her suggestion? A B-52 a drink I was warned would be terrible by my tablemates. Anyways to make a B-52 you will need
A standard shot glass
Irish Cream (Bailey's)
Grand Marnier
Kahlua
Instead of mixing this drink you layer it by pouring first the Kahlua, then Baileys and finally the Grand Marnier into the shot glass.
I am one of those people who always smells a drink before trying it, and my first impression of this drink was that it smelled like turpentine. At this point I was not in fact expecting a lot from it (actually I was expecting it to be disgusting.) but since I’ve committed to trying random ass drinks just so you can learn from my mistakes I picked up my glass and downed the thing. The result? Pleasant surprise, the combination of things, though smelling absolutely toxic turned out to taste delicious. The resulting aftertaste was caramely a thing which by itself I normally dislike actually tasted quite good. While I cant see doing several of these in a row, this would make an excellent desert shot, and I will most likely order it again at some point.

Now for a drink I know and love and suspect most people do as well although I always run into that strange freak who doesn’t.
The Dirty Bong water!
While I and my fellow Fauquierians tend to take this as a shot it is apparently intended to be served in a Collins glass. Something which I will not turn down, or raise my nose at. To make a dirty bong water you will need
1 part Amaretto
1 part Curacao, blue
1 part Sour Raspberry Pucker
1 part Southern Comfort
1 part Grenadine
2 parts Sour Mix
And either a shot glass or Collins glass.
Preparation either way, however, remains the same. Using a cocktail shaker or something along those lines shake all ingredients over ice, then strain into the glass. Did you catch that last bit? Strain it! Nothing is more disappointing than getting a drink that is half ice. The drink itself is a pleasant blue green, and is nothing short of delicious, I don’t know what to say beyond that other than go drink two or three of these!
Once again send me your damn shots! Coming soon is what is promised to be one of the worst shots I have ever taken!
