Friday Rock Out - Lucinda Willams' "Real Live Bleeding Fingers..."

Lucinda Williams - Bleeding Fingers

Is there a better song title for a Friday Rock Out than "Real Live Bleeding Fingers and Broken Guitar Strings"? We've loved this song since the first time we heard Lucinda sing it in concert, several months before it appeared on World Without Tears.

As we're mercifully moving into the warm weather period, nothing says summer to us like a cold tasty beverage in the sun and Lucinda's Car Wheels on a Gravel Road playing in the background.

Speaking of tasty beverages, it's probably about time to set aside the bitters and amber ales and move towards more of a pale pilsner or lager for the summer months. Steam Whistle is always a really nice warm weather beer, and for those of you who plan to visit the Dome from out of town this summer, you owe it to yourself to head over to their brewery at the Roundhouse, just across the street. There are free samples to be had, and if you don't abuse the privilege, you may be able to get a second sample out of the stellar staff.

Summer is also a good time for a tasty Blanche de Chambly, which kicks the snot out of the Rickard's and Keith's white beers that have slunk into the market.

And just to prove that we're not a complete beer snob, we would enjoy a Molson Ex, if you're offering.

Here's to a warm weekend of summer imbibing, and a fine evening with Roy Halladay pitching. Sociable!

Tao. You have excellent taste in beer. Please show some love for Romero. Have you forgotten your by-gone man-crush already?

Heart always,

Just because we don't talk about it doesn't mean we don't still love RR Cool Jay.

RickRo did a pretty great job last night of getting himself out of jams and keeping the Jays in the game.

I like beer. It is tasty and makes me fat. Brrrrryummm.

I need to try Blanche de Chambly. Tonight, preferably.

Keep on rockin', Tao.

And Ricky was sublime last night. What a rudey.

I brew my own. I still manage to leave the fort occasionally, at least, so far.

I thought I was the only sucker who shells out for Canada's Premium Pilsner! Good choice Tao, cheers to that.

For binge drinking, I recommend Bud Light cans. Less filling, less inhabitions, same hangover.

Tao, I just sauntered over to the LCBO. Picked up the last bottle of Blanche de Chambly. Cheers.

Tao of Stieb said...

Nicely done, eyebleaf. And make sure that all of that sediment from the bottom of the bottle gets into your glass. That's where the flavour is!

Mmmm. Beer.

Line up change.

Happy fucksticks?

Well, no. Rios's OPS is over 800 the last two weeks. Wells is, what, less than .500? They moved the wrong guy.

Only they didn't, as clearly they view Wells as the face of the franchise or something. He'll keep moving up the worse he plays till they petition to let him swing in the top of the first at home.

Good call on the Blanche, though it's better on tap. And I'm not happy - move Overbay up!

Heart always,

My Friday J-Rock-Out is UVERworld, and Wells moved from the second most important spot to the fifth most.

Blanche de Chambly 4tehwin.

But the Rickards White is pretty good.

Avoid Keith's White at all costs.
