Even More Jesus (Evil Twin)

I had the luxury of visiting my favorite pizza spot in KC. It's not just the pizza, it's the beer list that keeps Waldo Pizza on my mind. With Firestone Walker's Parabola sold out, I went to my second pick.

This imperial stout was a special pick. I shared the small bottle with my partner in the Waldo adventure. While his tastes favor more bitter brews, he was quite pleased with my generosity. You can't deny the allure and decadence of Even More Jesus.

General Thoughts
Look and Smell: This
black brew was incredibly viscous. It had a dark chocolate head. It smelled chocolaty with a slight roast.

Taste: It had the bitter grittiness of a Mexican ground chocolate. It had a slight roast on the aftertaste. It was smooth. It was rich. It was a beer to savor. Between this, the Imperial Biscotti Break, and a couple of others I've sampled, I think I'm in love with Evil Twin.

From the Evil Twin site:
A few times in the history of craft beer it has happened that a highly praised beer rises beyond mortal stardom into a higher godly league. Usually the recipe to make such heavenly drops is thick fudge-like body, pitch black color, amazingly overwhelming aromas of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and muscovado sugar, obviously only made in limited amounts and most crucial of all – it must taste rare!

I Marched, What's Next?

What can we do? There has to be more than writing letters and posting on social media. This is a work in progress, but these are my thoughts...
Stay educated. If you think the media is misleading you, take charge. Know your sources. Do your research. You don't have to consume the 24-hour repetitive cycle of media. You can focus and keep it to the point. I like NPR, Popular Science, and the technical sources (department sites). If you're curious about education, go to the Dept of Education site! You want to know about the job rates? Go to the Department of Labor reports.

Educate each other. We are failing in this. We need to talk about the issues. Not just reposting articles, but face-to-face or virtually with a personal spin and follow up. We need to have meaningful discussions about the current state of affairs and what is happening. We can only act together if we work together. But serious discussion, not Facebook posts!

A Right Regal Bonsoir (or Imperial Bedroom Revisited)

Elvis Costello doesn't mess around. Last night, at The Chicago Theater, I witnessed a true delight of the senses. Out of respect for the artist's wishes, as requested, I didn't take any pictures or video of the performance. You'll have to live through my description and a grainy, preshow snap.

Wild Horticulture (Little Shop of Horrors)

Last night, I saw Little Shop of Horrors (Crown Point Community Theater edition). This fan-favorite has stood the test of time. People still pack in to see this 80s musical based on a 60s movie. Big production or small, the catchy tunes and dark yet quirky storyline keep people humming and laughing.

CPCT has a great range of shows. From Sartre's thought-provoking No Exit to the whimsical, yet mature, Happily Ever Once Upon they bring entertainment to the community. CPCT brings in plays that are far from mainstream. Evenso, it was a delight to see this classic musical.
