A friend once told me (while discussing wines & spirits) to learn about coffees too… " Because you’ll eventually need them, if / when you enjoy too much good spirits."How to be an Adult 201
i’ve been working at a liquor store that specializes in mostly wine for about 5 years, and while i’ve gained a decent amount of wine knowledge, there’s a shit ton here that i didn’t know about!
Wine is a huge and amazing and tasty world of wonder and experience and learning to pair a good wine with a meal is SO satisfying aaaaaaaaaa
“Those of us in the industry who are still foolishly clinging to the idea that female films, with women at the center, are niche experiences, they are not! Audience wants to see them, and in fact, they earn money. The world is round, people!” - Cate Blanchett
In The Palace of the slums,
from the Saturday night pit,
from an unseen shaft of darkness
I remember it: how, first, a sound
took wing grandly; then the thrill
of a fairground sight - it rose,
lordly stout thing, boasting
a carnival of gaudy-bright,
changing colours while wheezing out
swelling ronchi of musical asthma.
I hear it still, played with panache
by renowned gent, Cathedral Jones,
‘When the Broadways Baby Says Goodnight
it’s Early in the Morning’ - then he and it
sank to disappear, a dream underground.
Later, those downstairs, gobbing silicosis
(shoeless feet on the mecca carpet),
observed a miracle - the girl next door,
a poor ragged Goldilocks,
dab away her glycerine tears
to kiss cuff-linked Cary Grant
under an elegance of chandeliers.
(No flies on Cary. No holes in his socks.)
And still the Woodbine smoke swirled on
in the opium beam of the operator’s box
till THE END - of course, upbeat.
Then from The Palace, the damned Fall,
the glum, too silent trooping out
into the trauma of paradox:
the familiar, gas-lamped street
and the striking of the small Town’s clocks.
