I'd love to commit to posting every day, although I suspect it's a losing proposition. Still, my goal is to write more this September and this seems like a way to start. I have all these half-finished essays, these lingering story thoughts but nothing sticks these days. I need a focus, and I need some follow through.

So, we're watching Orange is the New Black and it's so good. Just so, so good. I have many thoughts, but we haven't finished the season yet, so I'll come back to it. But such amazing relationships, and moments and gooey smart things to think about, and so many great women, and women's connections, and interactions and...characters.

Also, my husband's web series (which he wrote, directed, produced) is finally airing. It's a history of the cocktail, with a snazzy host, and some great drink techniques included and it looks amazing. (Not that it seems like it will be amazing, but the visuals and the "look" of the show is really solid, really beautiful and it will make you long for one of the cocktails you see in front of you). This week's episode is on gin, filmed at two of my favorite places in LA, and proving that I really need to invest in a bottle of chartreuse.

Check it out:


(YouTube is somehow not letting this show up in Canada. I don't even...here's the link on the website: http://tv.esquire.com/videos/70570-the-mix-history-of-gin-the-last-word-web-original)

I dig the web series! I'm particularly fond of the history of booze, but then, I really like the science of distilling. The little asides about how gin is often vodka redistilled with juniper berries was my favorite bit. The lead has a very toothy grin, I must say.

The upcoming episodes are also going to be great - they'll cover Juleps, daiquiris, punches and some other fabulous things!

I am posting nearly every other day, just not in my journal. [livejournal.com profile] xf_is_love. It feels good to be posting and discussing.

Someone needs to make a "farscape is love" community.

I finally got around to watching the vid. That was very well done.
