Twin Van Winkle

Twin Van Winkle

For two years running, I’ve been lucky enough to score a bottle of 12-year-old Van Winkle bourbon. They’re hard to come by, so I’m getting spoiled. One of these is getting opened soon for consumption for sure now that I’ve got two. I just need an occasion, and Inauguration Day 2017 is most definitely not it. Hopefully next year I’ll be able to land one of the 12-year-old’s siblings!

“The Trumpster quote #1”

“Carrie Fisher, Our Princess, Passes Away”

A stunning loss. It was great to see her last year when Star Wars rekindled its story, and I’m looking forward to the next installment, even though it will now be bittersweet. She’s an indelible part of my childhood. Rest In Peace.

RIP George Michael

Freedom! ‘90” is one of my favorite songs of the era, and possibly ever. I saw George Michael in concert twice, most recently a few years ago after some of his more public embarrassments. He was very self-aware, coming on stage and saying, “Thank you for coming. I know it’s not easy being a George Michael fan right now.” He put on a great show, and I’m sorry I won’t get to see another.
