Tonights game should have been an easy win. Instead its a fucking EMBARRASSING loss. Lazy ass performance from pretty much the entire team but most notably Joe Johnson. He's made it very clear vocally that he wants out of Atlanta, but tonight was the first real time I saw it on the court. With 4 minutes left, we were up 9. Time to close up shop. Nope, instead we decide to give up 14 unanswered to put the nail in the coffin of our season. Barring a fucking miracle. The Bucks are hot, we on the other hand could give two shits. Tonight was truly disappointing. With all this talent we cant take care of the #6? Much less Orlando....jesus.

Matt is a fucking cool dude. Hilarious guy and good sound man at the 'donia. He's also a damn fine country song writer. (maybe we need to get into kens and record a NEW country record!!) Jeff Griggs is also in his Shit Hot Country Band and plays on them skins. This is the audio of their first show. Available for download over at Sloan's fine site - Southern Shelter. This might easily become your new favorite drinkin band.
(Ask Jeff about their "drunk practice"...thats not a "drunk" practice...thats a "drunk practice".)

Makers 46 notes...
I check this one bourbon message board sorta regularly. Well one of the founders of the blog - the Gandalf of bourbon - wrote a post about how Makers goes about making their new 46. This guy has a pallate that no man can rival, so in the past when he suggests a bourbon, I'll try it and 98% of the time, I'll like it. Here is what he said about the new Makers 46:
"They take barrels of Maker's that are ready to bottle. They dump them and open up the empty barrels. They affix (without using metal or adhesive) two dowel rods in about the middle of the barrel. The ten seared staves attach to the dowels. The head is put back onto the barrel. It is refilled and returned to the racks for another few months.
The official TTB (Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau) designation is: Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey Barrel-Finished With Oak Staves.
It is really, really good, maybe one of the best things I've ever tasted. They have, using nothing except wood, come up with a new and mighty delicious way for bourbon to taste. One might even call it "a new breed of bourbon," were one to coin a phrase. When it comes out, it will be one of the best-tasting bourbons on the market today. I love it."
Pretty glowing review from someone who knows their bourbon better than, well, almost everyone on earth.
Besides the higher proof, here is where they get the "46" name:
There’s another difference besides the higher proof – and this difference is why this new Maker’s is called ’46′, because ’46′ is a descriptor of this new Maker’s other differentiating factor: French Oak staves, No. 46 French Oak, to be exact. What happens is that the whisky is taken out of the barrel, and one-inch charred staves are loosely attached to the inside of the barrel, at which time the whisky is put back in for an additional five to eleven weeks.
Supposed to be hitting liquor stores in early June (too bad it wasnt in time for the Derby this week), and needless to say I cant freakin wait to try it.

Seriously. I hate to say this because I really dont want to make anyone feel bad for missing it, but that was hands down the best time I've ever seen them. FUCKING. DEMOLISHED. In the setlists leading up to last night you could see hints that a monster show like this was brewing. Then last night they just completely vomited spongy badass awesomeness all over us. The picture is of the LMLYP closer, about 50 chicks jumped up on stage - one of which flashed the crowd. Mainly they were just hovering around Deaner the whole time dancing. It was hilarious. Gener was also freakin hilarious all night. You could tell they were ready to jam. Pre-show was fun too. Thorn and I met up with Ayers and a bunch of the freaks from the Ween Forum at the Mariott bar, that was really fun. One of the cool dudes from the forum made shirts for everyone which is this awesome boognish/motorhead logo. Its badass! The crowd was electric and everyone was in a great mood and there werent too many hippies. Although i did see some awesome hippy with no shirt on doing twirling dances! Overall it was just a super radical show. Honestly, the best time I've ever seen them. Take a whiff of this:
