A Man Reviews Feminine Things

Righto boiz. Here it is. Another review for ya. And this time it’s a song. What song would such a manly man choose, you may ask? Something by AC/DC? Bruce Springsteen? Parkway Drive? Well if you just stop asking and let me finish, then perhaps you will learn. Anyway, trust me, it’s an artist better than all of those three.

That’s right. Ariana Grande.

This young Mariah Carey-esque songstress has come out with another dance fuelled pop explosion: “Break Free.” This is a song I can see myself listening to in any number of manly situations: when I’m pumping iron at the gym. When I’m hunting boar with the boiz. When I’m making sensual, yet effective love. When I’m at the bar with the fellas watching footy. When I’m mowing the lawn. When I’m grooming my beard. When I’m milking squids for their delicious ink. The soaring vocals over the choice house beat courtesy of my main man Zedd ensures that I’m going to have a good time.

Just like men can drink whatever they want, they should be able to listen to what they want as well. And if what I want to listen to Ariana Grande before I listen to Metallica, well so be it.

Grab life by the manberries.

Ramblings

If you haven’t figured this out yet, I’m all about keeping things as simple as possible. It’s easier to keep life uncluttered, and allow me to spend time on my other projects.

So, when I found out the mimosa had a less fizzy, more potent counterpart, I was SOLD!

The first time I ever had a screwdriver, my Uncle Steve — who is one of the best bartenders ever — requested one for me while we were at the bar in Ouray, Colorado.

It was delicious, and I’ve been drinking them ever since. To make it, you just need orange juice and vodka. Seriously, that’s it! I half and half mine, but feel free to make your own proportions.

So, let’s raise our glasses and toast to Tuesday, because we still have a great week ahead of us!

P.S. I found this picture along with lots of other 2-ingredient drinks

Vampire Cocktail

Halloween is coming up, Boiz. Don’t be afraid to get a little spooky with your #vodkamanberry.

Medium Of Mixology

Well it still might be a little early for some (myself included) to be thinking about Halloween themed drinks, so this one will work for both the holiday and all the annoying Twilight fans out there that also drink (which is probably a very small area on a venn diagram).

The drink is simple enough. Berry aromas to start, with a sweet start and a slightly sour finish with a mild bite (no pun intended). It’s a good themed drink, but it’s lacking in a lot of complexity so there’s not much to talk about. It tastes a bit like each of the constituent parts. Perhaps a drop or two of grenadine after shaking could add a little more flair to the drink, if it doesn’t get lost in the rest of the “red.”

Alc. Rating: 5-6/10
Overall Rating: 6/10

A Man Reviews Feminine Things

Ah. Welcome. This week we will be reviewing the blockbuster musical Wicked. 

What? Just because I’m a man I can’t review a musical about 2 witches who learn about themselves and the true meaning of right and wrong?

Jesus Christ. This is just like the whole Vodka Cranberry situation. You mean because I have a penis I can’t see a god damn musical? Huh? HUH? HOW DARE YOU. THAT IS SICK.

I am lost for words. This is the 21st century. The time where there is more social acceptance for different minorities than ever before. I mean sure, there is a long way to go for many of these groups. But I still deserve a little respect. Shame on you. Shame on society. Same on you again.

Anyway, Wicked was good. Costumes were nice.

The restaurant where you’re greeted with a gun – and shots of vodka

Vodka. The language that brings us all together.

In the Ukraine, naturally.

As the conflict in eastern Ukraine rumbles on, hundreds of miles away in the west of the country, a restaurant is using past and present wars to attract diners.

It was a stern-faced Ukrainian soldier who asked my Russian colleague Dina whether she was a “moskal”- a bad Russian, who wants to kill Ukrainians – or a “rossiyanka” – a friendly neighbour, with good intentions.

He stood in an old-fashioned green uniform, a machine gun at the ready, waiting for her answer.

Luckily, it was the right one. “I’m a rossiyanka, of course,” she said.

This triggered a smile, a shout of “Glory to Ukraine” and earned Dina both a shot of honey vodka and entry to a partisan-themed restaurant.
