I'm the kind of guy who never buys the same bottle of whisky twice. I like to always keep something new in the bar. Right now I'm sipping on the new Royal Lochnagar Distiller's Edition, a whisky I have never before purchased, but am enjoying immensely.
However, I am finding that as I get older I am less interested in new music. I am less interested in new movies. I just want to listen to and watch the things I am already familiar with. They comfort me. They help me through the cold winter weather. I am getting old. That's what old people do. They're not up to speed with pop culture.
All time greatest albums?
1) Pavement - Wowee Zowee
2) Red Hot Chili Peppers - Blood Sugar Sex Magik
3) MF Doom - Mmm....Food
4) Deerhunter - Microcastle
5) Tears for Fears - Songs From the Big Chair
At least, those are the five albums that I could listen to on repeat and never get tired of.
Best movies of all time? In this order:
1) Ski School
5) Rambo 4 (I am watching this right now, hence the motivation for this post)
I could put these movies on a 24 hour loop and I would never get bored. If they are on TV I will invariably watch until the end from whatever point I tune in at.
Whisky, however, is an entirely different animal for me. I do not want to taste the same thing over and over. I want new stuff. New products. New flavors. New producers.
I want more.
Pass me that unopened bottle, please. John Rambo is telling the missionaries that they have no business in Burma.
