What are you trying to suggest about Billy Crystal's finest moment?

I was about to make a "Billy Crystal was in Schindler's List?" joke, but I'm more taken aback at the thought of LM getting tanked on THE ZIN!

I hate PA, simply for the fact that whenever I read about anyone buying alcohol in a normal store, it takes me five seconds to get over the confusion and remind myself, "Oh yeah, in other states they do that sort of thing."

Also, LM, that's not even how you spell his name, COME ON!

It doesn't make a whole lot of sense, really, putting alcohol and cough medicine in the same store. Lil Wayne probably finds it convenient.

Or Jamarcus Russell.

But like supermarkets, too. That's completely foreign to me.

Beer and wine are sold just about anywhere, but you can only get liquor here at liquor stores. It's a pain, and yet another reason why New Orleans is so bad ass.

Or, soon enough, Jason Campbell. That poor son of a bitch.

Supermarkets are logical enough, especially since the kind of shitty wine they sell in there usually comes with a menu on the back to make sure it goes down as smoothly as possible. Good Wine (est. 2004) brand Merlot goes great with Beefaroni, I've found.

I can't help but think Matt would be thrilled that we're talking more about wine than The National in this thread.

We're a little freer with beer: designated beer distributors for cases and kegs, and six packs at restaurants/bars. That's it.

With wine and liquor, you can literally only purchase them at the State Store (or Wine & Spirits as they call it now). The state has a complete and total monopoly over their sale.

I don't drink wine hardly ever since I'm underage and we basically are restricted to cheap vodka and beer, but once I turn 21 I intend to fully explore the wine world.

Exactly 18 months to go.

Wisconsin: any and all liquor you want is in supermarkets, gas stations, etc.
Minnesota: only beer in supermarkets, liquor in liquor stores, and no alcohol sales (excluding 3.2, but really, that shit doesn't count...) on Sundays.

I miss living in Wisconsin sometimes.



Minnesota has way more lax marijuana laws though...as in decriminalization. So, it works out.



OH! and in National-related news: I sold my ticket to Friday night's show in August. Still going to Thursday's though.

In other National news, Scott has created a drink called the "Bloodbuzz Ohio:"

It's one part 7-Up, two parts red wine, with a splash of Coke, on the rocks. Who wants to test this out first?

Some cool info on the Brassland represses:

Quote:
SAD SONGS FOR DIRTY LOVERS
1st Press / 1000 sleeves & posters made, 500 packaged with black vinyl LPs (2003)
2nd Press / 500 of the old posters & sleeves found in a warehouse & packaged with newly pressed black vinyl (2010)
3rd Press / 3000 sleeves made, 500 packaged with white vinyl & another 2000-2500 packaged with black vinyl. The poster is new -- part of a three piece triptych that you will only be able to complete by getting re-presses of all three of these new Brassland editions (2010).

CHERRY TREE
1st Press / 1000 copies pressed on 10" red vinyl by Shake It Records in Cincinnati, OH. Slightly different looking sleeves than the CD edition (2004ish)
2nd Press / 3000 posters printed by Brassland. We're not 100% sure how these will be packaged yet -- though we have big ideas...

SELF-TITLED
1st Press / 3000 sleeves made, 500 packaged on blue vinyl, 2000-2500 packaged with black vinyl. These will hopefully arrive at our office any day now.

On July 20th, the black vinyl editions of the new records are supposed to be available via our distributor and all the usual suspects (Insound.com, I think I've seen them at Amazon.com). The colored vinyl editions -- at least at first -- will only be available via our online store (http://store.brassland.org) & some shops we have relationships with. (Probably Other Music, maybe Shake It in Cincinnati.)

RE: the posters // We're also hoping to sell them via the website in case you already own some of the older editions of these records. We don't want people to have to buy multiple copies of the same record -- though I know some folks will inevitably treat these re-presses as collectibles, we're going to try to keep these records in print as long as there is demand.
Don't think I'll be getting Sad Songs since I just got that 500 pressing from earlier in the year. Same goes for Cherry Tree, which I've already got in that original pressing. But I dig go ahead and snap up the blue s/t for $18 and free shipping. There are only about 170 left, so get yr order in.
