The room it smelled heavy of drinkin',  
and the sad silent song made the hour twice as long,
as I waited for that sun to go sinkin'.

Funny thing is that since 2004 I have been reading, seeing and hearing Ted talk as well as others about basically the same stuff with some new developments thrown in along the journey. I still enjoyed it. Fun listening to others talk when they are passionate about something.

I quite like his enthusiasm. All of my friends think I'm a little nuts for my enthusiasm for this stuff, so it is good to know I'm not alone out there.
I think it is nice to see someone addressing the public's questions like he did near the end.

I watched this some time ago, found it on youtube after seeing a small article on Jade Liquers. Was under the impression before joing WS that most had seen it?

Nice summary of most things that's worth knowing about absinthe. :like:

Top five brands so far:
Jade (PF) 1901 - this is a winner but also quite an expensive brand (It can be well diluted though). Top of the range and a top notch absinthe. | Grön Opal - Swedens most excellent premium absinthe. | Vit Opal - a truly excellent blanche from the same distiller as Grön Opal. | Libertine 72 - for the low price and because it can also be diluted really well this has become the one that I buy again and again.Duplais Balance - very tasty indeed and for quite some time my favourite (before Libertine).
