A rambling, boastful, word-drunk poem … It’s profane and funny and modern and archaic all at once, and its loose and unstructured verses are full of twisting, surprising kennings … Headley brings it to vivid, visceral life. Our third French Saison with Pike Market sourced ingredients. The base beer is light, soft, and hazy from 2- row and white wheat malt, fresh mango pulp and puree give it a tropical undertone, while the habanero chillies add a little flavor and heat.

Those who fall in love with other people have a similar sensibility. “Because I am in love with him, or her.” This is the aesthetic mindset of destiny. Again, we may go back to World War II Germany. When aesthetic ideals such as total efficiency and romantic love take a grip, they are hard to pry away. Human beings, and not just 1940s Germans, are dangerously abstracting creatures. The Stockholm Syndrome is a famous psychological dynamic by which a captive falls in love with his or her captor.

In the 1860s the famous American writer Harriett Beecher Stowe, of UNCLE TOM’S CABIN fame, took on the long-dead Lord Byron. By this time Byron was perhaps the most legendary figure in 19th century Europe, unless one counts Napoleon. He was thought to have been a great poet, a fabulous personality, and a war hero—had he not died defending the Greeks against the infidel Turks? He had become famous overnight in the early 180ss with his derring-do antics and beautiful, if sometimes scathing, verse.

It was like Forrest Gump’s box of chocolates, but in the worst way – yes, bc it is NOT chocolate but also – you just never knew what you were going to get. That is, until we tried a box of Cascade grown in New Zealand at Freestyle Farms. The terroir, combined with heightened attention to picking windows, brought us a bright Cascade with notes of lime flesh, spruce, blood orange and fragrant wildflowers we pictured growing on the hillside of Nelson.

In 2004, four Latino teenagers arrived at the Marine Advanced Technology Education Robotics Competition at the University of California, Santa Barbara. They were born in Mexico but raised in Phoenix, Arizona, where they attended an underfunded public high school. Their robot wasn’t pretty, especially neutral or stability running shoes compared to those of the competition. They were going up against some of the best collegiate engineers in the country, including a team from MIT backed by a $10,000 grant from ExxonMobil. The Phoenix teenagers had scraped together less than $1,000 and built their robot out of scavenged parts.
