Saturday: Bean Hollow

leave a comment »


BH-3

Last Saturday, my buddy, Alphonzo, gathered a handful of us at a spot in Half Moon Bay called Bean Hollow. It’s a small alcove for checking out tide pools, bodyboarding, and some awesome bbqs. Alphonzo was able to put together a makeshift smoker and made some very tasty salmon…on top of all the good eats he usually prepared. This guy is a savant when it comes to marinating and preparing sauces. I wasn’t able to enjoy the meats, since becoming a pescatarian, and really haven’t been able to digest gluten for a bit now.

The day was enjoyable even though the traffic down to the spot from the East Bay was terrible. We were definitely enjoying the beach life that day…thanks Saturday, we owe you one.

Spotify: Making a cd for your friend without the disc!

leave a comment »


Spotify made that Transatlantic voyage across to discover the land that is USA, North America. It required the natives to declare their curiosity by asking to be invited into that European club. While some were quick to hit that send button, others were still clinging onto more familiar services like Pandora, Rhapsody, Grooveshark, and LastFM.

And while some of us (Pandora for me) can still use these cloud service music players anytime, how many of us can make playlists for our friends to enjoy? How many of us can use the aforementioned music services to collect songs we find endearing, reflect who we are, or consider listenable without feeling guilty that Pop Culture as wrangled another one of us?

Consider using Spotify to make an online cd for you to give to your friends! Why burn a physical disc that will oxidize in a few hundred years when you can make something that will theoretically last throughout the “Space-Time Continuum” (don’t know about this? why click here).

The image below is an example of how simple it really is to accomplish making an online cd through Spotify. See arrow of how I made a playlist for my wife? After you’ve added your friends to your account…this is what you do: 1) make a playlist 2) name a playlist 3) drag appropriate music to named playlist 4) send email or text/phone call to friend that you spent some time thinking about him/her and have made a playlist worthy of their listening pleasure. 5) wait for a return playlist from that friend.

I’m making a playlist for my wife…things that she’ll like, music that would put a smile on her face (High Fidelity inspired moment with Stevie Wonder to remind you).

New Beer and Collaboration

with 2 comments


Here it is, out in the wild…new collaboration between City Beer Store and The Bruery. Made with love, and lots of blueberries and cherries…this 8% sour brew will keep you wanting more sun and fun…and immediate desires for a bbq and picnic.

Here’s a better picture of this wild brew in a much more tame environment…away from the concrete jungles of Folsom street. Click on the picture for a better view of the label.
