Does anyone think I need to celebrate because we have a big, round, and soft number here? I mean, should I wait until 500? That could be a long time from now.
Anti-irregardless, I hope everyone knows that this is one way to find out about what I’m doing, but there’s also Facebook, which I, uh, "do." You can find "my facebook" at http://www.facebook.com/hellbound.alleee . Go ahead and friend me. It’s best to say, "hey I like yer podsmack" or something like that. If not that, Praise "Bob" and yer in.
Enjoy The Conspiracy, because It enjoys you.
This is a two-parter, so today you’ll be getting the first half of "It’s a Conspiracy," which includes clips from The Hitler Channel’s "Secret Societies," with crazy old David Icke. Now, some of you may be familiar with Icke from Alex Jones and the like, so you may not know that Icke thinks there’s a race of alien lizard people disguising themselves as powerful leaders. He really thinks this. Hey—some people are so incredulous about this claim, they’d prefer to believe Icke means "Jews" when he says "Lizard." Quoth David Icke, "Sometimes a lizard is just a lizard."
New surveys are out on the world’s most livable cities. The places you’d really like to be to raise a family, enjoy life, start a business, savor days and nights and, well, there’s hardly an American city in sight.
The top 25 from the Economist’s Intelligence Unit finds Vancouver, Canada at the top of the list with Vienna, Melbourne, Helsinki, Osaka close behind.
And not a single American city. Pittsburgh sneaks in at 29. Monocle magazine gives Zurich top honors. And Copenhagen, Tokyo. Only Honolulu makes it from the USA. What’s up?
Let’s assume you’ve worked with Manfred Krankl at Sine Qua Non for the last eight years. What could you possibly do for an encore? Well, if you’re Maggie Harrison, you would become part of a venture to work with Oregon Pinot Noir. And then, you’d get to work on your own label as well.
The recent history of Oregon’s Antica Terra winery began when a group of four individuals, including winemaker Maggie Harrison, purchased the winery in 2005 and two years later planted additional acres of Pinot noir, with more planting planned for 2008. The new winery should come on-line in 2009. For her own label, Maggie is sourcing Syrah from Santa Maria Valley for her own, Lillian label, a small lot collection named for her grandmother.
Join us as we talk with Maggie Harrison, about her past experiences with the iconic SQN, and her current projects in Oregon and with California Syrah.
