Cool links for 2/28

Oh boy. My head hurts. No one told me vodka and wine and bourbon don't mix well. Still, duty calls.

Today's very quiet post includes:
Mr SKU no longer updates this very comprehensive list but I'm sharing it anyway because it is very comprehensive:
The Complete List of American Whiskey Distilleries & Brands

Here's a 100,000 year old tequila:

I'm not kidding

I like to laugh. This guy made me laugh for decades, and The Larry Sanders Show is still the standard by which I judge all others. Now, Judd Apatow has finished his labor of love. We'll all be able to enjoy it on March 27:
The Zen Diaries of Garry Shandling

I lived in Florida twice, California once and surfed one time. I also wore OP shirts in high school constantly. I had checkerboard Vans! I now live in Wisconsin and I like this:

Cool links for today

OK, yesterday's email seemed to go OK. Hundreds of you read it - thanks! And, hey, I don't mind at all if you pass this along to anyone else interested in random bite-sized bits of information. Don't be afraid to share via email or social. I like doing this kind of stuff, and if people are reading it, I'll keep doing it.

So, for the foreseeable future, I'll pass on some more stuff that's worth checking out...

The Drinking Festival in Every State You Don’t Want to Miss

Gotta eat, right? Use this excellent BBQ sauce from Wisconsin:

This is NOT a paid endorsement - it's just tasty.

Speaking of booze, if you're looking for a good gin that won't break the bank, try this one:

While enjoying some Beehive & tonic. plant yourself on the couch for the next few days/weeks/months and get set to watch all eleventy jillion hours of the shows on this list:

I'm excited for Silicon Valley, myself. But much TV.

Here's a randomly chosen pulp magazine cover! It's awesome.

Bye for now!

Videogame you can buy for me now:
I've been a fan of Supercross for many years. It's fast, exciting, unpredictable and it doesn't overstay its welcome, like some other racing series I could mention (Hi, NASCAR!). The new Supercross release for PS4 is available now!

That's all for today. Enjoy the week and we'll talk soon
