On the Dial



Brett: I saw The Lobster last night. It stars Colin Farrell and is directed by Yorgos Lanthimos. It's set in a near dystopian future where single people are turned into animals if they don't find a partner in a certain amount of time. The concept is brilliant, but for me it dragged a little. The Lobster is darkly funny and disturbing. Think of a deadpan slightly futuristic, more disturbing Wes Anderson movie set in and around a hotel?

My go-to beer has been Rhinegeist Puma Pils. It's relatively easy to find in Columbus and proves to be extremely drinkable without being entirely tasteless. It's crisp and dry with a mild hop aroma. The can design is also on point.

I recently watched the AudioTree session for the band Yak from the UK. (See video below.) It's pretty fucking crazy. I want to hate the guy in the leather jacket, but damn he's so cool and he literally rips his guitar apart. The first few minutes are the best part.


Against the Grain Brewery's Rico Sauvin Double IPA

Eric: We went camping last weekend at Mammoth Caves in Kentucky, which was a blast. The forest had some great hiking trails and the caves themselves were cool. You can only go into the caves on a guided tour, and the entrance is through a steel door in the middle of the forest, which reminded me of the TV show, Lost.

While in Kentucky, I picked up a pack of Rico Sauvin Double IPA from Against the Grain Brewery, which is based in Louisville. I dig their can design. I take a lot of inspiration from craft beer can design. (Which, while Brett digs those Rhinegeist cans, I think they look like fucking shaving cream.)

I read a new story by Joshua Mohr at CNET as part of their 'Technically Literate' series. It's called "Phil," and is about a "lauded novelist," a graduate of the Iowa Writers' Workshop who ever since becoming sober has suffered with writer's block. He scribbles in a journal and avoids his sponsor. It's fiction with a great bite to it, and very, very funny. We're publishing Mohr's first book of non-fiction, his memoir, Sirens, which drops January 2017.
