experiment goal: to determine whether smarties are an effective tea sweetener
hypothesis: smarties will sweeten the tea, but also introduce unwelcome flavor profiles due to their flavoring
procedure: procured one cup (≈12 fl oz) of Barry’s Tea Gold Blend black tea, hot. added 2/3 of a single roll of smarties candy (10 candies). wait for candies to dissolve, then stir well. tea will be sampled after stirring concludes.
fun fact about Heavydirtysoul: that drum solo in the intro is actually a very well-known sample from a 60s funk song!
it’s called the Amen break and is the most widely sampled piece of music in history - and a Google search told me it’s barely been mentioned in reference to Heavydirtysoul, so I thought I’d share for the 21p superfans who want to know the music history behind it. the Amen break is a 6-second drum solo loop that got picked up by the 80s electronica community and found its way into literally thousands of songs across multiple subcultures of music. for the longest time nobody knew where it came from, but it was eventually traced back to The Winstons’ song Amen, Brother from 1969
After reading the latest issue of Draft magazine I had a yearning for a double IPA. Not a single, a double!
Second from the left is what I’m having tonight: Rebel Rouser IPA from Sam Adams. It’s “Relentlessly Hoppy” according to the label. As I reached to grab that bottle I saw Sam Adams has a bunch of Rebel IPAs. Four of ‘em ended up in my basket. I’m gonna be so full of hops… I don’t know, will it make my pee smell bad like asparagus does?
A guy at the liquor store was giving out trial cups of beer. Normally I don’t take samples because the sample person starts talking to me. Then I feel guilty if I don’t buy that product.
Well guess what the samples were today? You betcha – Sam Adams Rebel IPAs. Proudly I held up my carrier to show the sample dude how I already had some in my basket.
