The Chain

Rumors Remastered

Fleetwood Mac | Rumors | "The Chain"

Listen to the wind blow, down comes the night
Run'n in the shadows, damn your love, damn your lies
Break silence, damn the dark, damn the light
     - Fleetwood Mac


PS. It's been a Fleetwood Mac sort of month... writing credits go to the entire band, so...

Don't Stop

Current Mood

Fleetwood Mac | Rumors | "Don't Stop"

If you wake up and don't want to smile 
If it takes just a little while
Open your eyes, look at the day
You'll see things in a different way

Don't stop think'n about tomorrow
Don't stop it'll soon be here
It'll be better than before
Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone

Why not think about times to come 
And not about the thing's that you've done
If your life was bad to you
Just think of what tomorrow will do
     - Christine McVie

Take Me To The Pilot

Elton John | self titled | "Take Me To The Pilot"

If you feel that it's real I'm on trial
And I'm here in your prison
Like a coin in your mint
I am dented and I'm spent with high treason

Through a glass eye your throne
Is the one danger zone
Take me to the pilot for control
Take me to the pilot of your soul

Take me to the pilot
Lead me through the chamber
Take me to the pilot
I am but a stranger
     - Elton John

Brew Detective: NAMAZU

Namazu Oat Pale Ale from Seismic Brewing is a welcomed diversion from the over-saturated IPA market in Sonoma County. First things last, the art is outstanding. It's easily a favorite locally and this can stands up to the cool branding elsewhere. Cool artwork deserves to be acknowledged.

The first can popped with good carbonation, a great addition to this multi-grain beer. Those suppressed bubbles amplify an almost doughy head. Malt-forward aromas hit your smeller. This western oat pale ale reminds me of a favorite from the Southeast. I'm of the belief that the oat helps to smooth out the malty first impression. Namazu is so well balanced considering the cadre of malts and hops. There's also some dry-hopping going on; hops are not forgotten in this pale ale. Find a six pack and enjoy responsibly. Namazu works well on warm days and cool evenings. 

Namazu | Seismic Brewing Co. | 4.8%
Malt: 2-Row, Aromatic Munich, C40 Caramel, Flaked Oats
Hops: Cascade, Mosaic, Simcoe, Calypso, Belma, Hüll Melon

Way Out

Best New Music

Lydia | Liquor | "Way Out"

Yeah, always talkin' 'bout
How you missin' out everywhere you'd rather be
See you hidin' out
You can cover up love it's cool with me


Cause I've been wonderin'
Why you runnin' round like the sirens goin' off
Don't understand it
Go and find what you love, I hope it's enough
     - Lydia
