In this episode of the Beercast, we get into a deep exploration
of Spotted Cow and the repeated consumption of fruity farmhouse
ales invariably leads to more success with women. Secretly
this is what "The Most Interesting Man in the World" is drinking in
all those commercials. The Dos Equis guys just slap their own
label on the bottle right before the cameras start rolling.
Secretly, the actor's name is Bobby Ray Garret and he's a former
insurance salesman from Argyle, Wisconsin, and it was in fact
Garret that taught Rod Shindler to play the suitcase ... in the
style of 1930's bohemian musician "Underbite" Fred Samsonite during
his work with the band "The Carry-ons." Speaking of which, all of
this episode's music was recorded live in Studio B and streamed
live to our radio audience. Do you have any idea how hard it
is to mic a suitcase? I mean, I've done upright basses
before, but the darned samsonite just resonates.
It know, that was a bit much, wasn't it? Fact is, I am doing way too many of these posts latetly and my thesaurus is completely wrecked from finding synonyms for the phrases "excellent musicians" and "nice guys," so I figured I'd just do a little freeform typing for this week's post. I'm sure the guys in Tonos Triad don't mind. Excellent musicians and nice guys, by the way. Oh, and snappy dressers. Have you seen them? You really should.
