For the record, I know that the Boston Marathon is one of the six major marathon events of the world. I'm just wondering the participation level of it.

No idea why I capitalized that. None.

Shows how much I know of marathons (next to nothing would be a generous description).

I know the Boston Marathon is a big deal, but how big a deal is it? Our Big Deal Marathon™ gets people from around the world flying in for it, I'm wondering if it's the same.
BBC people I was listening to yesterday when they were covering the bombing said it was one of the 6 major marathons in the world (they kept mentioning that London was the next one). Admittedly I'm just taking their word on that though. I've lost track of all the running stuff since I quit, but the Boston marathon was like the premiere U.S. event or something. The top finishers were from all over, about 27,000 runners or something?

Even with Starbucks, there is some variation depending on your barista and how experienced they are/do they know wtf they're doing. Before I left Brookings, one of my regulars said that she was really going to miss me because between Tim and I, we were the best at making coffee. Funnily enough, one of the newer people who work there has more barista experience than I do (about 5 years) and this regular said she didn't like her lattes at all. This woman gets a pretty simple drink, a triple large nonfat latte with no foam. So I'm not sure why anyone would have trouble with that drink. Cappuccinos are a little tricky though. It's hard to consistently get the foam just right. Or at least it is for me, lol. Plus different people like different levels of foam, although if they know how to order a drink they usually will specify if they want it wet or dry.

People that get one everyday can get a little nuts about it. Barista can make a lot of difference though, like a good chef at a restaurant to a lesser degree really.

Then again, I can't even eat Mcdonalds and the like anymore because it makes me sick, so whatever.

Starbucks is a "culture" now. People go to the bigger stores with their Apple Macbooks and spend their days there.

I follow you, it's weird. There was a point I want to say I understood it about Starbucks, but then they went global, and most people who cared switched to other sources for their fix. I can't really fathom why someone would expect the same quality from them at this point.

Speaking of Starbucks, I'm going to go walk down to the nearest one and get myself a hazelnut frappucino. Which has toffee nut syrup and hazelnut sauce. The caramel frappucino has caramel syrup and sauce. Why they did it that way I have no idea, but it tastes good so I don't care.

I can't help but wonder what the **** that even has to do with coffee anymore. I mean, I readily admit that my taste in coffee is atrocious (cappuccino made with dark roast store brand coffee pads) but if you're adding toffee syrup and hazelnut sauce, you're not even drinking coffee anymore...

lol - I am a bit slower than you other marathon runners. Back in 1994 I ran the Canberra marathon and finished in 4:59 :)

In my defence I am in no way built for long distance running - even at the peak of my fitness I probably would have been classed as slightly overweight. (of course that was 20kg ago Smiley: oyvey Basically haven't run (or exercised really) since then....

Your central station looks way more modern than ours, Aeth. Ours was built in 1911. Smiley: um

Apparently they saved all the modern stuff for our subway. That thing is all metal, glass and white walls.

I prefer the old buildings usually, as long as they're still functional. The new Utrecht CS will be an improvement over the current hideous metal and glass thing though.

Yeah, I never really get anything but standard drinks there.

Okay, that's not true, if I'm in the mood for it I'll order something peppermint flavored (not as sweet as the others, and I can tolerate sweet stuff more when it's mint...). But otherwise I typically just get a coffee, cappuccino, or an iced latte.

If it's available, I'll go to a local beanery or cafe. But that's not really possible anywhere around me. So it's a toss-up between WaWa, Dunkin Donuts, McDonalds, and Starbucks. Don't really like any of the others (and I worked at DD), so Starbucks it is.

You have no idea how interesting this is to me. I love that you find the music I enjoyed in college (yeah, we had colleges back then) enjoyable today. The thing is, there weren't just one or two great bands then, there were so, so many.

I'd love to know what you think of some other bands from that era. Have you listened to Yes, specifically Roundabout? Or Tull - Thick as a Brick and Aqualung, of course Locomotive Breath is awesome. What do you think of Tommy? The Stones' Exile on Mainstreet and Let it Bleed, specifically Love in Vain on that one. One of my favorite songs. Or Send Me Dead Flowers from Sticky Fingers. How about Steely Dan, The Royal Scam - one of my favorites is Don't Take Me Alive, the beginning sounds nothing like Steely Dan.

How about The Allman Brothers, Frank Zappa, The Cars, Cheap Trick, Clapton, ZZ Top, Bowie, Queen, god I could go on and on.

I'm not mentioning many great bands because I'm assuming you've listened to them, based upon your tastes. Like Led Zepplin, Black Sabbath, AC/DC, Blue Oyster Cult, Deep Purple, Alice Cooper and such.

Yes, boobies were expected. And another reason Starbucks is so popular here on Long Island is that there really isn't much alternative choice. McDonald's makes a decent Latte, but Starbucks Iced Latte is very good. I've been to Starbucks many, many times, and have never ordered anything other than a Latte, because as Lolgaxe said - the rest are just microwaved ice cream.

I've known and loved Yes (Relayer > the rest), ZZ Top, Queen, Clapton (especially with Cream), The Who and the Stones for a long time, as well as King Crimson, Genesis, Crosby Stills & Nash (& Young), Camel, Van Der Graaf Generator etc. Seriously, most of the music I have is older than I am. Smiley: lol


Zappa, Steely Dan and Bowie I've never really gotten into, I can appreciate their music but it's never clicked for me.

The frappuccinos can be a bit like microwaved ice cream, I'll give you that. But theirs aren't nearly as bad as the McDonald's one. I ordered a caramel frappe one time, and omg... that thing was ridiculously rich in comparison. I'm pretty sure they use a milkshake base to make the frappes. Specialty iced or hot beverages are really good though. Plus if you don't like them quite as sweet you could always ask for half the syrup. Smiley: tongue

It's pretty easy, the vocals fit with the music.

I don't mind filtered vocals unless the vocalist has a beautiful voice, and as long as it fits with the music.

In this case, it does, and I think it works pretty well (better than if it were unfiltered).

Luls, a local brewery is making a series of beers for every deadly sin. The "Lust" beer has already been banned in Sweden.

Might have to try some of those.

Maz-translated version of the description to the "Lust" beer:

Quote:
This strong Belgian ale is so sweet that we're not afraid to call it pure lust on a bottle.

During the brewing process, the atmosphere got so wild that brewers Jacob and Morten spontaneously started kissing each other on the cheeks. If Thomas Schön hadn't shown up unannounced, it probably wouldn't have stayed at that.

This beer is so voluptuous that we cannot exclude that serving it to [your] girl-/boyfriend in candlelight could very well end in a longterm dependency (marriage, ed.). We've brewed a beer with the most sensual sugars we could find in Netto (discount supermarket, ed.), and we've seasoned it with reputable aphrodisiacs like the Spanish fly, oisters and pulverized deer *****. Or maybe we're just full of lies.

"Wrath" is a Saison aged in Pinot Noir wine casks. Smiley: lol

Quote:
Saisons are in. Saisons are hip. Simple as that. So far no one has been quite able to explain why this extremely traditional Belgian beer style has suddenly enjoyed a fierce flowering among trendsetting beer nerds. Except, of course, that it's an extremely delicious beverage in all its refined simplicity.

But we've committed a sin. We couldn't help it.

We've poured our Amager variant of a Saison on a wooden cask. We hope that the soft tannins from the wood and the noble Pinot Noir grapes will give it a juicy twist.

We realize that we may summon the wrath of the Saison fundamentalists on ourselves with this prank. But honestly, we don't care.


God, translating is haaaard.

After Lust, I was kind of hoping the description involved some domestic violence or at least bar fights. Smiley: frown

So here's what we'll do: you are going send me some of these and the rest of that series, mkay? Because that sounds like a really interesting beer.

I'll see if I can get my hands on some. Might have to take a trip to Amager to get them, though.

Note to self: Last time you do an all-nighter, Maz. Weird things start happening when you haven't slept in 36 hours.

Makes operating heavy equipment more exciting, or so I've heard.
