Tex-Mex in the Big Apple? Apparently not going so well. I love a snarky restaurant review.
Active duty soldier survives two tours in Iraq, only to die mysteriously in the El Paso Jail.
Slow West is getting mostly positive reviews. When (if) it plays here I’ll definitely be seeing it. Fun fact: it was written and directed by a member of the Beta Band (from that scene in the movie High Fidelity)
What I’m Listening To
Has anyone heard The Rose of Roscrae yet? I’m curious. It’s a folk opera set in the old west. I collect those. (Yeah, there’s enough of them to collect.) It has a sprawling cast and the story seems interesting.
What I’m Drinking
As far as “cheap beers” go, I’ll always be partial to Coors Banquet Beer. Now it’s in stubby bottles which has absolutely no bearing on the taste whatsoever. There’s nothing like pulling a Coors out of an iced down cooler and drinking it next to a mesquite fire. Or, on your back porch. But seriously, next to the fire is best.
