Welcome to the Science of Drinking   2 comments


SoD WebAt Phoenix Comic Con 2012 – Doc Walling and myself began an exploration of the bar culture that is found in every

science fiction story. From Quark’s Bar on DS9 to the Mos Eisley Cantina – we have begun an epic journey to see what happens when various liquids come together and mix in a thematic harmony. Each post here will be of our various exploits as well as our previous concoctions. Recently we added our camera man – Johnny LaBrat – to the mix who brings his love of burbon, beer and literature to the mix. Believe it or not – having a man wax poetically about Shakespeare does add to our literary credibility.

The recipes from Phoenix Comic Con 2012 which were exhibited at the Captain’s Cantina event will be posted here, as well as the other concoctions from our main panel. After PCC2013, we will have a whole new batch of delectable delights. We even went as far jumping on the YouTube and are now causing watchable mischief. You should take a look!

Also working with The 3 Drunk Geeks – who explore the world of beers (and other alcoholic delights) as well as  Geek Culture/News – we hope to make a contribution that is not only palatable to the mouth but the mind as well. So sit back – relax and enjoy some Science!

According to the last log…it has been 8 months since we last posted. Well I know we’ve done a couple of videos and posted them on our YouTube channel. Actually we had a few since September. Initially we thought we weren’t going to be doing anything for Phoenix Comicon. Turns out – they like our humor (or at least that is what we tell ourselves. Thus far – we have been in discussions and came up with something to entertain the masses…

The Science of Drinking Presents – EXTREME SCIENCE FICTION TRIVIA!?

Yeah, I know – pretty odd with that question mark at the end. Either way folks – we are doing a team style trivia quiz for Phoenix Comicon. We will be running our show on Friday Night at 7:30 as per the Phoenix Comicon Programming Website. If you are interested in participating in this madness – you need a team of 5 total people and all have to be 18+ years old. If they are not – they will not be let into the room for this panel. We offer great nerd glory and prizes.

Of course – we may slip in a new top secret signature drink or three in the mix so it pays to to join us for some epic level madness.If you are interested – CLICK HERE to sign up your team today.

Hope to see you all there,

Living Through Bowie   Leave a comment

Now that I have had several hours to sober up and deal with indigestion – I figure I present a more literal interpretation of “David Bowie Is”. Needless to say, https://i1.wp.com/www.simonbowen.com/wp-content/uploads/DavidBowie_Plakat-354x225.jpgboth Doc and I enjoyed the documentary. The documentary itself was about the exhibit that is currently traveling the world. It is an immersive dive into his life with pictures from his life, writings and costumes throughout his career. A more drunken version of our “after show” review is on our Facebook page (prior to the regret of the aforementioned pizza consuming). All in all,  I think you can say that David Bowie is best seen as a diamond. There are so many facets to him that no two beams of light are ever the same. To say that he was a dreamer is an understatement. He is a visionary who still tries to find a new way to create himself. Bowie creates Bowie and in turn creates more Bowie. His visualization of the world and himself is too amazing and varied to put into one category. David Bowie is

Click for the Playlist!

So as both Doc Walling and Johnny have heard (repeatedly and with great vigor) – I am a fan of the Guardians of the Galaxy. Like a 1980s fan of the comic when I was a kid. So I am giddy with excitement as the movie will be out in just over three weeks from today. If you haven’t heard – the director has released the “Awesome Mix Vol. 1” with the 12 songs full of awesome from the 1970s. I went ahead and hunted for the songs on YouTube for your musical pleasure. Hope you enjoy!
