Listening to Bobby Hutcherson's version of the theme from BLOW UP off his album, Oblique. That's what these get-togethers lead you to!

Nice!

Hung over and tired today, but perfectly controlled drinking yesterday. No sudden illnesses or disappearance acts or anything. I'm very pleased.

Participants included Falkirkbairn, Onyabirri, Jim Phelps (who was in an unusually talkative and spirited mood!), Graham, Thomas, Howard and myself. Range of topics from Bergman & Antonioni (yes, that BLOW UP version is great) to drink types to football to the virtues of San Fransisco as opposed to LA to FSM Messageboard gossip and intrigue. No tour of Onya's bar this time, but we can save that for a later meeting.

It was a fun time! Thanks for hosting, Thor!

God yes, Phelps is usually so sullen the whole time. ADDED LATER - Ah! I think you were being ironic, Thor. Duh me.

Very enjoyable chat. Looking forward to seeing Onya's Voodoo Room and Safari Suite next time. By the way, I'm glad I couldn't join right from the start. I kept getting a sharp pain in my left eye, then realised that I hadn't taken the toothbrush out of the wine glass! Happy that you didn't see that.

For decades, the health industry has promoted the benefits of oral hygiene, but rarely if ever do they discuss the dangers posed by toothbrushes. I appreciate your shedding light on this critical issue.

Thor

Are we having another meet anytime soon? I miss you guys.

I was set to have another meeting next week, actually, but last week, I had water damage in my apartment, and need to move out temporarily for a few weeks while the landlords dry it up and replace the floor. Not sure how the Zoom possibilities are at the temporary apartment, but I'll find out once I've settled in.

Sorry to hear about your troubles Thor, hope you get sorted soon. No rush with the meet, just whenever you can.

Sure, thanks. Meanwhile, we can always keep posting in this thread in regards to its original intent - weekend shenanigans and drinks!

Yesterday, I had a bottle of Camp red wine and some specialty beers. Tonight, I'm having a Falling Feather red wine and a couple of beers. A recent discovery was the IPA version of Duvel. I've never been a big fan of the regular Duvel blondes, but wanted to give their IPA alternative a go (a triple hop citra). It was very "cute", as in "Belgians don't really know how to do IPAs, but adding a sense of pine to an existing and dominant blonde taste tasted surprisingly well, if transparent".

Looking forward to the next Zoom meet-up. In the meantime, I have been enjoying some of this IPA.



A very nice IPA. I think I prefer it to their Fresh Squeezed IPA (also a great beer), which is more generally available.

Oh gosh, wish it were available over here.

So, hope everyone's been having a good summer. The first couple of months of the autumn are always very busy for me (and probably others), and I have plenty of upcoming challenges and tasks ahead in September and October. But let's try to re-ignite our meetings.

The next meeting will be in one week from now -- on Friday, September 17, at 21:00 (9PM) Oslo time.

Hope some of you can make it!

The link is the same always (see a few posts up).

I'll try to make that, Thor. By the way, have you been in touch with OnyaBirri? I had contact with him via email shortly after he was booted off the board (or booted himself off) but my more recent emails to him have gone unanswered. I'm sure he'd like to be present at next Friday's Zoom, if someone has a way of getting in touch with him.

Yes, I e-mailed him with the details of the upcoming meeting. No answer yet, but he's said he wants to join future chats, so here's hoping.

I hope you can make it inbetween your busy work schedule and whatnot.

I am going to try and rearrange my work schedule on Friday so I can make this. Looking forward to another Zoom meet-up!

Great, Michael. We'll do Saturdays eventually, but since it's been so long since the last meeting, I wanted to do the "regular" Friday first.

Thor, is the above the correct link for tonight? Did you manage to get in touch with Onya? I hope to be there, but I'll be late as usual.

Cheers Kev. Your comments are entirely unrelated to the world of drinking, and as such have no place here. Go immediately to the song plague thread, post the link to the Michael Jackson song which I told you all about yesterday (or was it Wednesday?), and continue your inconsequential drunken ramblings there.

Yeah. He'll try to be there, but he wasn't sure if it collided with work or not (he's changing between home office and regular office these days).
