As always I've got some music from blip.fm for everyone to listen to on this fine Friday. I'm really digging blip.fm except that as many of you know, I'm easily amused, and unfortunately also easily distracted. Consequently just listening to one song turns a 30 min blog post in to an all night epic as I see new songs pop up that I'd like to listen to or hadn't heard in awhile and then my eyes continue to be averted to new songs popping up.
This week I've got the Voodoo Glow Skulls for you hailing from Riverside, CA. The Voodoo Glow Skulls can be described, I guess, as a rock/ska band. I know what you're thinking, ska reminds you of the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, and while they were "ok", not something you are thrilled to be recommended to listen to. Well, the Voodoo Glow Skulls are much better than that. Give these guys a shot though and let me know what you think.
I think this weekend I'm going to hit some of my favorite Franziskaner hefe-weisse. Their website describes their hefe-weisse as full-bodied and aromatic. Since I'm less eloquent I just find it smooth and tasty. The Fit Chick may be able to chime in with the ingredients this beer consists of as she surely has had this tasty beer, however the lemming sadly can not, my palette is not that refined. I can just tell when beer tastes good, I can't tell that it was fermented in 7 year old cherry wood containers with hops and blackberries picked by Germany's finest virgins on a cool, yet overcast fall day. As an interesting tidbit, their brewery dates back to 1363, which when you think about what has gone on in the world between 1363 and now, that's mind boggling. Debate it over a few of the Franziskaner hefe-weisse and it will be even more insightful.
And now on to my favorite section, pictures I've pilfered while reading my blogreader throughout the week.

That will do it for this week. Give your bike some love this weekend and remember to never drink and ride unless you can find a cool stash of Bud under a log or need to pop a double with a bonfire in the middle.
