    Butch Trucks R.I.P.

    Just read that one of the original members of The Allman Brothers Band has passed. Sad news. For all the glory the various ABB guitarists received (and deservedly so), it was the rhythm section that defined the sound of the band. Rest easy, Butch.

    Sandy Pearlman RIP

    Just read of Sandy Pearlman's passing. He was influential in the rise of the early hard rock/heavy metal in the 70s and was one of the leaders, though not an official member, Blue Oyster Cult. One of my favorite bands from my youth through today. Their first half dozen or so albums still get...

    Two weeks, three pens, one ink

    So I made the trip back to DC last weekend. In my haste to get out the door I made a huge mistake...only one ink bottle made the trip. Here I sit with three pens inked with Diamine Bl-Bl. Typically I switch inks daily as it makes it easy to review notes and mark-ups. One more week to go. At...

    2014 Dallas Pen Show

    This year's Dallas Show is beginning to show on the horizon. The dates are Sept. 26 & 27 and we are hoping to have a B&B meet for the show on Saturday. Last year several of us met for breakfast before the show and searched the nooks and crannies of our cars to pay for a meal after the show. It...

    Home-Cured Bacon Question

    I have been curing and smoking buckboard (butt) bacon at home. If you have never done so, I would highly encourage all to try. It is a simple process that yields a delicious result. My problem stems from my recent visit to the butcher only to find the cost of Boston Butts have sky-rocketed. They...

    Any Ginger Ale fans?

    I love ginger ale both in cocktails and all by its lonesome. A gin buck is my go-to summer drink and I am warming to bourbon and ginger ale. Whilst surfing the net for something refreshing to drink I ran across a recipe for celery soda using homemade celery syrup. That looked easy and awesome...

    This One Goes to 11!

    Right. We have threads for blues, rock, country, jazz and all things Irish. But where does that denim and leather clad guy go to blow off a little steam? This is that place. Whether you favor hard rock, proto-metal, NWOBHM, death, black, blackened death metal, thrash, extreme, shoegaze, post...

    First off, the show is great. From the writing to the actors to the production, the show is top shelf. This season they have really showcased the flavor of Harlan county by displaying locally produced bourbons. The locals tipple Wild Turkey and "Elmer T", while the guys in the white hats...

    Time to Finish Some Product

    Like many of us on B&B, I came down with a serious case of Acquisition Disorder. A few years back I tempered my shaving supply purchases (mostly because I have run out of places to put the goodies). Other than a few well-reasoned purchases I have been able to get a handle on my various ADs...

    Black Hole of Bourbon

    Gents, I have always favored scotch over just about any other spirit. Maybe about a decade ago I decided to give bourbons a go. Typically I would have a bottle in the cabinet. Elmer T. Lee was the normal choice but there could also be some bottom shelf stuff for mixing. Nothing special. This...
