The communication age has left us stranded, broken, bleeding
lying in the ditch
all because you can't recognize the real thing from a communications glitch
I hope everyone is happy in not knowing what you don't know but
your heroes are dying
ain't life a bitch?
what of all the Trump supporters
still got his back? A sharp increase in underground hoarders indicates
the presence of a digital hack.
So, where are you now, in the communication age, stuck in a feedback loop, or are you ready to turn the page?

I got an Easter message from Boggy, as I always do.

 

Followed up a little this year.

 

He's forgotten about absinthe and is making beer, up to 75 batches now.

 

I mentioned mead and as it turns out he's aging a cellar full, up to eight years.   He sent me a list in Polish, but that's alright.  When it comes to the fine points of mead (technically speaking), it seems to me Polish is the definitive language.

 

So, nothing negative nor political about any of that, and they're subjects about which a lifetime of communication would not exhaust.

Thanks.  I was going to go down the stairs and saw him there - was struck by the angles and the light as well - had to rush to get the camera before he moved.  Turned it to black and white and adjusted the contrast to get the most out of the light/shadows.

They're English roses.  I used to think there were two kinds of roses - hybrid tea and floribunda, but English roses (from Texas, but originally from England) are a type all their own.  David Austin roses to be precise.  The foliage is indeed perfect waxy green at this point, but Louisiana plays hell with roses (humidity = fungus among us).  England it's not.  We'll see.

The one in the photo is called Desdemona.  It's mostly porcelain white, but I played with the color balance and that enhanced the pink that to the naked eye, you wonder if it's really there or imagined.  A different bush has a flower today, and it's really peachy pink.  I'll put up a photo later.  It smells good, too!

Jubilee Celebration.  I didn't notice the bug until it was on the computer screen.  The blossom isn't ideal - as you can tell by the bud, aphids sucked some of the vital essence out of it - damaged buds will bloom, but into damaged flowers.  Fortunately I erased the aphids before they could ruin it all, but it took several applications of an earth-friendly chemical.  Where are the ladybugs when you need them?  They eat aphids like popcorn.

I had a nice rose garden in Georgia.  I wrested the ground from the kudzu, which was a Herculean struggle.  Kudzu, like many other invasive species, was brought to the U.S. from foreign regions to impress yahoos at various world fairs.   It covers entire forests in Georgia.  In Louisiana, nutrias and water lilies are examples.

 

But my best garden overall was in Illinois, at the time I joined the assbinthe community.  There was a big wild rose outside the kitchen window of my rented haunted house (circa 1910).  White, simple flower with five petals, required no care whatsoever.  Here it is with a glass of Moonman Assbinthe. 

Those were the days, my friend, we thought they'd never end, blah blah blah, blah blah blah blah blah blah.

But solid in the truth to the sollicitation.

As further punishment, please to be employing this photograph (as long as the hard drive with the pictures was out of the closet anyway).  I took it in Idaho.  Imagine these people as you and I, in Idaho, scrying the above truths using glasses of made-on-the-premises malty beer as crystal balls, on an autumn afternoon.  And you have a 50% of chance of being the old lady.

I have a tractor, but it's in Arkansas.  My partner uses it to mow and move hay for his cattle, and that gives me pleasure.  Too big for anything I do down here anyway.  So you tilled everything - anything planted, or ...

 

My son in law has a thing for hibiscus, which I always thought boring.  On Okinawa, they're everywhere, wild, enormous.  But the flowers are pink and boring.  Then we learned about a local man who operates a Frankensteinian lab devoted to Hibiscus - he creates hybrids with names such as Voodoo Magic (fucking Voodoo magic, mon!)  So we planted a couple of bushes.

No doubt you guys remember HG heroes Aion (Austria) and Nephilim (New Jersey).  And Ted, a scientist man who built a time machine, went back to 19th century Switzerland, and gave absinthe a bad reputation by pretending to have invented it, riding around on a horse named Rocket, conning people, to set the scene for his adventures in the 21st century.

 

Note that Aion's distillate captures a fir tree, and Nephilim's, an enormous lilac, but Ted's, for some reason, sucked in the muddy depths of Gooseberry Creek.  But in those days I tried to keep a foot in every fire, in pursuit of the Assbinthe Celestial.

50% old lady, that's me.

 

Indeed.  But at least you're among the living, and not lingering in Hiram's Old Lady Forum (does that still exist?).  The ghosts in the house in Illinois were two old ladies who had been born in the house and lived there all their lives, spinsters.  Not long after the last one died, I rented the place.  The wall paper was nice but fraying, so I painted over it, and discovered this the next day.

So then I asked around and discovered that one of the old ladies was named Pauline ....

 

I never saw them (but my wife did).  They did playful stuff, such as closing the cats in a closet, or opening doors to let them into rooms when we wanted to keep them out.

I think I'm going to have a glass of absinthe tonight. Maybe something old and illegal. Just for old times sake.

I still remember that glass of Nephilim's HG you poured in NOLA half a million years ago.

 

I also keep too much stuff...

That photo was taken eight months or so after Ted's coming out party, but I brought a Nephilim sample there, having no idea how it would compare to Ted's, as I had not tasted any of Ted's at the time, but Neph's was so good that I knew it would not be shamed out of town.  As I remember, the comparison was pretty favorable.  I honestly can't remember if I let Ted taste it or not.

Straight up attempt to duplicate Pontarlier style, based upon the old books.  Simple recipe, just the basic plants.  Grain ethanol.  Tiny stovetop rig tended drop by drop.

 

Got a surprise call from Mr. Grim a couple of days ago.  He was also watching something drip.  He wanted to know, on behalf of a skeptical apprentice: write everything down or to hell with that?  I told him I had always written everything down, and read maybe one percent of it afterward, but there's a certain value just in the writing.  I may not be able to make great absinthe, but I can document the hell out of the making of a good one or a shitty one, either way.

 

There was a guest here last week and I broke out the sadly forshortened dregs of the only two absinthes on hand - Texas Green and the original Blues Cat.  I was shocked at how well the Blues Cat has developed - it hardly louches but the fragrance and flavor is sublime.  First taste of absinthe I've had in many moons.  Kind of made me want a whole glass or four.

I was surprised at the louche too, it started out as a louche monster, anise bomb, but changed.

Well, it never louched like Texas Green did it?  But what does?  Our man in Texas was the master of capturing mass quantities of essential oils - can't really do that with a one-run deal like Blues Cat was. In any case, the guest preferred the Blues Cat, as lighter and more "feminine" than the hammer that Texas Green is.  I told her, that being the case, that she should just order herself a bottle of Meadow of Love, Cheryl's admitted "feminine" offering.

My Blues Cat still louches pretty well. I think the flavor has passed it's prime but it is still delightful. The mostly empty bottle remains in my liquor cabinet.

Mostly empty is the prime descriptor.

It may well louche nicely with a full glass - all I did was water a tiny amount in a liqueur glass so it wouldn't be hot to the taste; I made no attempt at a proper louche.  Hard to tell about the louche of any absinthe with such a small amount, in my experience.

I do minis in a shot glass sometimes -- about a third absinthe with water slowly added to the top.
