It pays to drink

Recommended Posts

A couple months ago I bought a 6 pack of Leinenkugel Sunset Wheat. I noticed they were running a sweepstakes. Without much thought I entered the codes. It's not like I ever win anyway. Nothing happened so I eventually forgot about it. Over a month later I received a strange e-mail from UPS. I thought it was fake, but decided to open it anyway. It was sent at the request of Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Co. It appeared they were sending me a package. I couldn't figure out why. I thought I hadn't won the contest and that was it. Guess I was wrong. I became one of 40 winners in their first drawing of the summer.


On July 7th my package arrived. Inside was a backpack, shirt, hat w/ bottle opener, bottle opener, bottle holder, and glass.
















Sometimes it does pay to drink.

Nice score, mate. Via drinking Hahn Super Dry I recently won an Australian World Cup soccer scarf, beanie... and yeah, you know it - cape. My bro kept the beanie and cape and I got the scarf. :)


In related news, a few years ago when I was jobless I penned a few awkward novels, and enjoyed it. Since I met my wife I haven't really had time or opportunity to pen anything more, but recently I got some moments to pen a short story, which came out quite poorly, and even more recently (since the weekend) I started a new "novel." The catch, I wrote the entire short story, and everything of my new work, while I was under the influence. I just sit there drinking beers and writing stuff. At the time it seems pretty cool and I seem to pen some decent stuff that might not otherwise come to me. I haven't read back over a lot of it, but what I have doesn't seem too dampened by the juice...

    • His music videos are always good: either very silly, or very sexy. So I've got this queued up on the PC. Looking forward to it. 
    • New single "The Animal" dropped today, not bad at all:    
    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.
    • 3rd single... Love It   
    • New video for 'Dance'.    
    • Vandenberg - Sin Chicago - The Chicago Story (2 CD) Megadeth - So Far, So Good, So What? (Expanded) The Allman Betts Band - Down to the River Mike Oldfield - Five Miles Out (Remaster) Buckingham & McVie - S/T Michael Hutchence - S/T Roxy Music - Stranded (Remaster) Echo & the Bunnymen - Reverberation  Echo & the Bunnymen - Evergreen (Expanded)
    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave
