Begyle Brewing Release Barrel-Aged Stout "Snooze Button"

Begyle Brewing Release Barrel-Aged Stout "Snooze Button"
Begyle Brewing is my neighborhood brewery. They specialize in brewing beers that almost anyone can drink, and they’ve done very well creating their own headspace in this sphere. But, over the last few years, they’ve stepped up their barrel game, throwing their hat into the proverbial ring of barrel-aged beers. First, they took their Imperial Pajamas, an American...

I Got A Headphone Stuck In My Ear Canal

I Got A Headphone Stuck In My Ear Canal
Ouch. I’m scared. I got the soft silicon portion of an earbud stuck inside of my left ear canal. It didn’t really hurt but I could feel it inside of my ear, and that scared the shit out of me. It basically disappeared inside my ear, and it gave me the creeps. A weird sensation that felt like, “I-can’t-go-to-bed-with-this-shit-in-my-ear” type... Read more »

“Spirit guide, backseat driver, ’bout time that you took the wheel.” Where is the new Bear Hands record?

Ready Or Not Chicago, Fall Is In The Air

Ready Or Not Chicago, Fall Is In The Air
Yesterday I stepped out of the house to a chill in the air. Nothing violent, but I noticed my short sleeved shirt wasn’t enough? Then today my greatest fear was confirmed. Fall is here. Didn’t Summer just begin? I love fall but hate what follows. Chicago winters are a dirty disaster that seems to never end.... Read more »

Would You Like Extra Hair On Your Pizza?

Would You Like Extra Hair On Your Pizza?
Man, I miss Grandma Franklin. The long-running joke around the house was that she put extra hair on everything, including pizza. Yes, you heard that right; hair.
