Six-Pack Saturday: Falls City’s Hipster Repellent

Hipsters. They’re everywhere. You probably know one. You might be one. Love them or hate them, hipsters and hipster culture are becoming increasingly prevalent in society everyday. They also have a new enemy: Falls City’s Hipster Repellent. Continue reading

One Year of Landlocked Living

Well, here we are. It’s been one year since Landlocked Living came into this world (wide web). I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t at least a little bit surprised it’s still kicking and I’m still updating it, albeit not as often as I’d like to. But nonetheless, it’s been one year and my oh my, how things have changed! Continue reading

Six-Pack Saturday: Left Handed Brewing Company Milk Stout

I first heard of milk stout a year ago. I remember thinking it sounded horrible. The name alone raises a lot of questions: Is this milk and beer? Is this milk made from beer? Is this real life?

Needless to say, after a year of curiosity and seeing the stuff on the shelves of various stores, I finally caved and bought some. Left Hand Brewing Company finally broke me. You hear that Left Hand Brewing? You win! And boy am I glad. Continue reading

Six-Pack Saturday: Tap Room No. 21 Copper Lager

Now that my computer is once again alive and well, I’m proud to present you all with another edition of Six-Pack Saturday. This round I’ll be reviewing Tap Room No. 21’s Copper Lager. I love lagers and I love honey, so what can go wrong? Continue reading

I got 61 comments in one month: what happens next will shock you

First things first: I’m alive and I plan on uploading some real articles this week. The power supply for my desktop PC decided it was time to call it quits, leaving me with my laptop, but without Photoshop. My beer photos may only be pictures of beer on the counter, but I’ll be damned if I don’t at least make the lighting look better! Continue reading

Six-Pack Saturday: Quaff On! Brewing Company’s Hare Trigger IPA

It’s no secret that I love IPAs (that’s India Pale Ale for you non-beer drinkers). IPAs are easily one of the most controversial beers among beer fanatics, as people tend to love them or hate them. The beer equivalent of espresso, IPAs pack a massive punch and an intense flavor. This week I’ll be reviewing Quaff On! Brewing Company’s Hare Trigger IPA: a hoppy brew that packs more hops than a herd of bunnies. Also, I have no idea what the technical term for a group of bunnies is. Continue reading

A Case of the Mundane: Little monsters

Let’s pretend you have a friend, who we’ll call Jeff. Jeff isn’t a bad guy, but he’s definitely a little unpredictable and high strung. You can count on him sometimes but he isn’t the definition of reliable. If you call him, he might answer. He also might tell you to go to hell. He might not say anything. Sometimes the two of you have the best times. Just the other day you threw the ol’ ball back and forth for hours. But other times Jeff is a real dick. Yesterday, as you were passing him in the hallway, he pulled out a crudely fashioned shiv and stabbed you several times. When you asked him why, he simply walked away and left you to bleed out on the freshly washed carpet. It was at this moment that you realized why some people don’t like cats. Continue reading

The unlikely writer

I’ve been writing since I was five years old. For those of you doing the math, that means I’ve been writing for 21 years. The only thing I’ve done longer than that is play computer games. And basic biological functions, like eat, breathe, drink, poop, and all of that stuff. Note the comma after drink. I’m a slacker, not a barbarian. Continue reading

Six-Pack Saturday: Third Shift Amber Lager

My future in-laws have been visiting from Texas, bringing with them tales of barbecue, music, brews, and memories of our last visit to the Lone Star State. Feeling overly nostalgic and knowing a Six-Pack Saturday was long overdue, I decided to review the Third Shift Amber Lager, brewed by Band of Brewers in Fort Worth, Texas. Continue reading

A Case of the Mundane: I like jeans

Jeans: Most people wear them. I myself am a huge fan of jeans. I’d wager they’re the most useful article of clothing available to mankind. Clothing makers seem to recognize the importance of jeans as well, as there are several million variations of them available in stores (that’s not an overstatement, I did my homework). Despite the several billion choices of jeans available, I have managed to find a favorite brand – Levi. The plot thickens though, as Levi makes several trillion variations of jeans within their own brand. So how is one supposed to know which ones are worth buying? I’ll tell you how – extensive trial and error. Or you can read this article. Actually, go that route. Forget I ever told you about trial and error, that’s for chumps. Continue reading
