  1. OK, kudos. I should have known you'd be able to source that. Identifiable is what I was going for. Let me make a couple requests, by far less common. Obviously, nothing to do with the topic, and I'll stop after this, but.... "The Lost Elixir" by George Griffith. Whatever you find by T. L. Sherred. Find them online, downloadable, and you'll be a SciFi god. By the way, read Sherred, and you'll be changed, I think. I was. Sound & the Fury did it to me too. As did Flannery O'Connor, as did Doris Lessing. Just a few. I love lit. If you want to imply an obscure source of Harlan Ellison's I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream, go for the adventure game by that name.
  2. Is the Pee Wee Herman Show available on DVD?
  3. Wow. Thanks, guys. I’ve been busy discovering a life via a vacation amongst family, so hence the belated acknowledgement. No internet, no PC, not even absinthe, tho I did manage to revalidate the flattened smilie emoticon via the blue agave connection. Amazing how alcohol seems to consistently provoke the same condition, ± any so-called magical synergistic effects of distillate additives. Or not so amazing. One thing for sure, the stuporific impact grows more telling with each passing year. But you’ll find out. I appreciate all of your warm sentiments here.
  4. Blast from the past. From April '05: 1. Jade Suisse Verte 65 2. Jade Edouard 72 3. Jade Nouvelle-Orléans 68 4. Suisse La Bleue Clandestine 53 5. Kübler 53 6. Blanche de Fougerolles 74 7. Verte de Fougerolles 72 8. Montmarte 65 9. Un Emile Sapin 68 10. Segarra Absenta 45 The Eddie, Clandestine and Montmartre were then relatively new.
  5. Thought you might have had an in with Claude-Alain as a merchant or barrique collaborator. Do you actually buy any individual bottles of absinthe retail to drink?
  6. I like my women bitter. My absinthe has to be lanced and irrigated. Buttered up bosses, natch. Soured relationships with beef sausage. Grated expectations on life’s carrots. I like to take my sweet thyme with chores. Several grains of salt with my internet. Dark forebodings give me gas.
  7. The hair just stood up on the back of my neck. Thanks alot. Not gonna think about it.
  8. Sweets for my sweet, Sugar for my honey... Might fill spoons full of coffee, Fill spoons full of tea. But just a little spoon of your precious love; Is that enough for me?
  9. Welcome, and that’s louche of ambrosia
  10. Sounds like all roads lead through drinking more and lotsa fountain parties.
  11. Markus, have you had occasion to compare the two?
  12. Well. you just keep those peepers on-line now, you hear?
  13. They're the only ones that have it, to my knowledge. Has Markus added the Duplais and/or the Clandestine Barrique? Haven't checked any vendor sites in a while. My point was more directed to the price for such a dubious flavor enhancement. That's not going to change much.
