I am a huge (HUGE) Avett Brothers fan. Their recent rise to popularity first struck a bitter chord to me (I’ve been a listener since 2005 – I was 14) and I became protective of their music and my own fanhood. I’ve grown out of that stage, however, and I’m glad to share them with the rest of the world, mostly because I think everyone should know how incredible their music is. Somewhere in there, though, I think everyone should have the chance to stare at Scott Avett. Aside from playing banjo in the Avett Brothers, Scott enjoys painting, making prints and posters for his own shows, and (not) grooming his beard. If I could have the pogonotrophy of any other human on the face of the Earth, it would be Scott. Also, born in Cheyenne, Wyoming, raised in Concord, North Carolina – Scott Avett is the definition of Americana. What is more American than a banjo? You’re right, nothing.
Representing the better half of the state of Missouri, Boulevard Brewing Company took the title. As a local Kansas City native, I’m glad to support our local brewery that consistently produces amazing craft beers. Although, I do love a summer Weach from O’Fallon and I’ve got some Coffee Stout from Schlafly in the fridge right now, I’m glad my hometown took the title. So far I’ve drank beer from Alaska Brewing Company, Nimbus, New Belgium, Dogfish Head, Landshark, Free State, Abita, Flying Dog Brewery, Bells, Big Sky Brewing Company, Granite City and Full Sail. I think that’s about it… Dogfish Head and Bells are among my other favorites that I’ve had.
I’ll go ahead and tack this map on my wall alongside my “To Drink:” list.
I’m not tired of winter, just tired of wearing so many dark colors. So a little life was brought to my outfit today. 100% Camel Hair Sportcoat, son.
Poor tie job, I know. Rocking this with some 14oz Karabo Baldwins and some blue suede bucks.
The camel hair breaks up the monochromatic look of blue shoes, blue jeans, blue shirt, and blue tie. No socks, of course. It’s not THAT cold. Happy Sunday, gentlemen.
