I. Love. This. Song. It is never going to get old. Ever.

Tonight's bowling scores:

130something (133, I think)

Again...this wasn't a blind squirrel finding a nut. I can actually control my ball now, and I have the arm power and muscle memory to speed up my throw as well. I feel that this season, I am finally going to start getting good. I decided to celebrate by busting open a Storm King. Recently, bllm said something about the taste of macrobrews when you get into high-quality microbrew and I forget what it was and I'm too lazy to look...but I'll just say that Yuengling is still enjoyable to me although I'm appreciating the w00t craft b33rs.

As far as cosplay goes, I didn't get much done today at all. However...I did figure out how I would like to make the guard for Xiahou Dun's Kirin Sword. It's a funky shape with some raised detail and it has to look metallic. Well...to make a very long story short...assuming you have an original object, casting a copy out of resin really doesn't look difficult, and there are metallic powders to put inside the mold before you cast. Thus, I think this will be my best bet. Weeeee. Anyway, I should have the foamies claw mold finished this week. I did get some more work done on it last night. Even if it's not all nicely sealed with duct tape (and therefore still looks fugly because of the masking tape holding it together), I'll put up pictures.

Woah seeing my lj name all iconed up like that... that's not something I've seen in ages.

I said that I find it hard to appreciate good or at least better beer without having some bad beer that's obiously had minimal effort put into its production, but that also happens to be cheap and very drinkable. There are exceptions, of course, like Corona, which is every bit as bad as MGD Lite but for nearly twice the cost, and also Old Style, sometimes a 30 can case on sale for $10.99, which happens to be quite decent in spite of it's low prodiction values. Of course its macro-swill status can be called into question since I don't know how hard it is to find outside the Chicago area.

And Yuengling isn't exactly macro-swill... It's relatively hard to find outside of PA (or so I've heard), although repots say it's cheap and highly drinkable. It could be the Old Style of that part of the country.

Hehe...yeah, I don't see mine like that often either. I haven't commented on any of your stuff in a while, so I wanted to make you feel spayshul. Or something. ^_^

Around here, Yuengling is regarded reasonably well. Before I developed a taste for beer, it was one of the few types I could stand. I've also heard that isn't easy to find outside of the state. Some friends of ours had it at their wedding, which took place in DC, and for whatever reason (probably because they did indeed have to buy it specially), it was rather remarkable.

I haven't had any true macro-swill in fricking ages, so I really can't remember what it tastes like...but I do know that I had a can of Busch at a party about ten years ago (LONG before I developed a taste for beer) and it made a decent accompaniment to chips and salsa. I tasted some Pabst a few years back at a party (there was a reason for it...we were playing a drinking game set to the Midnight Madness movie, which includes some scenes at the Pabst brewery, so one of my friends just had to get a 40 of that stuff), but I was already drunk and it honestly didn't seem that gross to me.

Whoa shit, reading that reminds me that I need to get back into bowling league :o I haven't bowled in like 3 months or even more >.>.. since Christmas holidays I got lazy :D. But even by then I've lost practice and such my scores have been poor (sometimes I'd hardly get over 100... :o). Bowling is cool :D, I just need to scrap up the $$$ and the time to get back into league @_@. I need to get my averages back up into the 130s and above and such...
