The Hot Sauce Committee Part 1 was supposed to drop on September 15. Due to the sad news of Adam Yauch’s illness, the album and corresponding tour has been postponed. All the best to Adam Yauch and his family. The video of the announcement speaks to the kind of people the Beasties are… straight up class.
The live video for Too Many Rappers featuring Nasir is from this year’s Bonnaroo Festival.
Fix a drink, light a smoke and sharpen your wit. Season 3 premieres on August 16th at 10 on AMC.
I am generally a strong proponent of single original beans for the sake of purity of flavor and clarity. That being said, I really like Stumptown’s Hair Bender, which I tried for the first time only recently. Details from Stumptown below:
Our Hair Bender is a complex espresso blend featuring coffee components from the three major growing regions of Latin America, East Africa and the Pacific Rim. We devote constant attention to the Hair Bender and are proud of its status as our most popular coffee. The aroma demonstrates floral notes of jasmine while the flavor is a combination of sweet citrus, milk chocolate and caramel.
I think the burger phenomenon is beginning to be bad for me. So many burgers, not enough arteries.
The world has so many little gifts.
The Times has a somber photo essay entitled Ruins of the Second Gilded Age chronicling the fallout from the foreclosure wave.
It’s a bit like comparing Goodburger to Peter Lugers, but I am sold on the Dessert Truck. I was a loyal follower of the Treats Truck, primarily due to proximity to my office and the nice lady who dispenses cookies and brownies in a bandanna and a smile. After trying a few desserts at the Dessert Truck, which includes, a warm brownie with ice cream, salted caramel and pretzel; fresh strawberry shortcake; and warm chocolate bread pudding with bacon custard sauce, I will walk the extra blocks for the experience.
