Good morning!  If you woke up early today to catch the women’s final at Wimbledon I hope you didn’t spend too much time blinking your sleepy eyes, cause you’d have missed it.  Garbine “A Straight G” Muruguza rolled over Venus “She’s Got It” Williams in just one hour and fourteen minutes.  A competitive first set (where Muruguza fought off two set points) was followed by a laugher of a second, with a 7-5, 6-0 final result.

My plans for today include mowing the lawn and unpacking an Instapot, which is a pressure cooker that Dr. Mrs. Deadly, Esquire bought that can apparently do many things.  I’m not sure what’s going in it first – probably some variation on pork loin.  Which will be a vast improvement of the slab of salt (flavored with a sprinkle of pork loin) I had last night at Alimento.  It’s a restaurant here in LA that we’ve enjoyed quite a bit in the past, so I’ll be giving it a second chance, but it was pretty disappointing.  We were seated next to Michaela Conlin, who plays Angela Montenegro on TV’s “Bones”, which we used to watch until around 2010, when they added a baby to the cast, and…

…No!  No, nothing like that.  Anyhow, my wife and I agreed that she’s prettier in person.

Beerguyrob is back, so I won’t chew your ear off here (sorry, have been watching too much iZombie) but if you’ve got something you want to vent about (sorry, been watching too many HVAC instructional videos) here’s your chance!  Have a great day, folks.

How much you reckon it would cost to bribe Nicaragua to take a dive? $75?

Original order.

Just heard on the radio that Stallone said Creed 2 will likely be about Creed fighting Drago for revenge . So, my question is, who’s supposed to be the protagonist in that film? Surely not the late 20s boxer who went toe-to-toe with one of the best boxers in the world, who wants to fight a guy in his 60s.

The good: My daughter loves Earth, Wind and Fire. The bad: When they came on while she was eating, she got up in her high chair and began to dance.

You, my friend, sound like you’re gonna have your hands full for the next 20+ years. But in a good way!

Re: the craft beer sellout thing.

I love Dr. Pepper and Guinness. They are both owned by huge corporations. Does that make them taste worse? No. Who gives a shit who owns the breweries if the quality is good?

Nothing inherently wrong with it; for me usually I prefer to try something different, a different take. I also like to give my money to locally owned businesses. The larger companies will tend to suppress innovation and experimentation in preference to uniformity and the biggest selling styles. They will layoff or fires redundant tasks people like accounting and marketing people. So I do give a shit. It makes them taste worse if they have their people come in and cheapen processes and ingredients to fit there own buying and distribution efficiencies.

I can’t say I’ve ever mixed Guinness with Dr. Pepper. Maybe with a scoop of vanilla ice cream?

A place I went sells Guinness floats, after trying it my suspicions were confirmed; keep the beer and dessert separate, IMO.

A Dog’s Purpose or The Godfather Part 2?

Anyone? Anyone?

A Dog’s Purpose made me cry.
Godfather Three also made me cry, only because I paid to see it.

Is Talia Shire a mediocre actress or a great actress? I just don’t know.

/watching The Godfather

The transition that Pacino makes from son of the godfather to godfather is perfect [makes kissing noise]

Almost everything he did afterwards? [makes pfffffftttt noise]

/He did kill it in “Rain Man” though…

Rain Man?

I would enjoy buying Michaela Conlin a nice coffee drink……

Then maybe fingerblasting her if the mood prevailed. Her Facebook page says she’s a squirter.*

*Could be misinterpreting.

A great, great scene in an amazing movie-but hold up! The more I watch it, the more I see the gas station owner as the 2017/8 Giants and Anton Chigurh as their (killer) schedule.

yeah right

I had no idea that Heineken owned Lagunitas.
That’s actually pretty fucked up.

Romonobyl

I was in Indonesia last December, although predominately Muslim they do cater to Westerners with a national beer. It’s called Bintang and I thought it wasn’t bad, then I found out it too was made by Heineken. I drank it anyway considering the logistics, any breath of air feels good to a drowning man (I wrote that, feel free to use as needed).

THIS JUST IN-

The craft beer industry is no different than any other industry.*

*entrepreneur builds small successful business, is not capable of refusing multiple millions of dollars from behemoths in same industry.

Still depressing….. bet the IPAs get weaker.

Ha! I was a huge supporter of Creemore Springs back in the day. As soon as they got some serious momentum going Molson threw a shit ton of cash at them. As Vonnegut would say, “So it goes”.

https://sandiegofreepress.org/2015/08/san-diego-brewery-may-be-selling-out-does-it-matter/

Still there are so many smaller, local breweries and the whole industry was partly due to a backlash of mediocre uniformity, so when one gets sold out there are others. Several claim the bought out brewery will be run the same; we’ll see how long that lasts.

Cheers.

Did you know that Kid Creole was an original member of the Furious Five? Neither did I until about 20 minutes ago.

yeah right

I took last Tuesday off from work to catch up on some projects. During that one day I…
Went to the bank the pharmacy, got new tires and an oil change, washed 2 loads of laundry, got a haircut, came home and vacuumed and thoroughly cleaned the house which all goes to say?

I am totally fucking off this weekend.

Apart from going to the gym, grocery store and making Sunday Gravy tomorrow.

When did I become efficient?

Rikki apologized so much in this post that he must be Canadian now.
