It’s hugely impressive. I’m very curious about how the final volume will play out, though I’m probably not gonna get to it for a while… I wonder how much of its seeming brilliance is down to the very unusual choice of second-person, which I’ve rarely encountered outside of Choose Your Own Adventure. Gives it a striking immediacy and intensity.

Jemisin is the kind of writer that makes me want to throw my computer across the room and shout ‘Oh what’s the point in trying!?!’

Comment on We Are What We Overcome – Podcast Episode 3 by Pete Fowkes https://captainpigheart.com/2019/06/03/we-are-what-we-overcome-podcast-episode-3/#comment-431 Mon, 01 Jul 2019 06:22:07 +0000 http://captainpigheart.com/?p=31480#comment-431 Interesting podcast. I was struck by the nearer absence of talking about personal feelings in a context of talking about feelings. There was a lot of humour used whenever they got anywhere near talking about difficult personal feelings or feelings about each other. In this sense, despite some brave attempts, perhaps an opportunity missed to actively demonstrate “how to do it/be it” and it became an intellectual exercise, where suicide was allowed to sneak out of the room and be about others and not those present. Perhaps such discussions would benefit from having a skilled facilitator who would keep the discussion focused in the here and now. The best example of this is the “check out”, where all are asked to disclose feelings, yet only ‘thoughts’ in the main are offered. However, I will listen to other episodes and would offer encouragement to the participants for what is a valiant endeavour.

Sainsbury’s had four new alcohol free beers the other day! I’m due another tasting session. The new Brewdog raspberry sour is especially good.

It’s truly an appalling drink. To give a worse hangover than the alcoholic version is staggering.

I ordered pretty much every single one online available.
The German ones were the best, but I still did not find one that really tasted like beer.

I then got back into real beer again when I discovered that ICE cold beer tastes so much better. then I got diabetes, so now I have to stop again.

Tesco seems to have quite a good range now, but the only one I found that really tasted like beer was brewdog, which is very hoppy, which I do not like.
Today I was in Sainsbury and spotted the CZECH beer, and to my surprise, it actually tastes like beer, to the point I think I can happily drink this.
I have seen the Erdinger many times before, but never bothered with it due to the fact it says isotonic drink, so I just assumed it would be crap. I will give it a try next time.

Brighton, also cool. But the north runs through like lettering in seaside rock.

Excellent! Glad you enjoyed the launch. It’s a real pleasure to introduce Jeff and let him do his stuff. The north is always full of cool stuff, though Jeff now lives in Brighton (the traitor).

Woohoo! It seems to be focussed in the north and I live in Surrey, now I can survive, knowing you all exist.

Comment on Beer Review: Three Zero Alcohol Beers by spekti https://captainpigheart.com/2013/05/03/beer-review-three-zero-alcohol-beers/#comment-250 Wed, 14 Jun 2017 15:42:22 +0000 http://captainpigheart.com/?p=3204#comment-250 The cider comment clearly demonstrates how far the human palette can vary – I cannot pick up any subtle tastes in beer at all – it just registers as BITTER: AVOID. PROBABLY POISON, whereas even with the no-booze Koppaberg (one of my personal favourites) I can detect all sorts of hints and notes of pear, and its never seemed too sweet. I do enjoy my dry ciders as well.

Yes! I’d forgotten about Huey, Dewey and Louie. Ah for the days you could invert paraplegic child actors and make them into robots.
