Insert ‘flip’ recipe here.




From Classic Mixology, 1862:

Rum Flip

Winter, Holidays

(Another method.)

  • 1 quart ale
  • 3 to 4 egg
  • 4 ounce sugar moist
  • 1 fifth rum or brandy
  • nutmeg or ginger

Keep grated ginger and nutmeg with a little fine dried lemon peel, rubbed together in a mortar.

To make a quart of flip:—Put the ale on the fire to warm, and beat up three or four eggs with four ounces of moist sugar, a teaspoonful of grated nutmeg or ginger, and a gill of good old rum or brandy. When the ale is near to boil, put it into one pitcher, and the rum and eggs, &c., into another; turn it from one pitcher to another till it is as smooth as cream.

The Sound Looking In

I don’t have much to contribute to the discussions about modern electronic music, or what Burial means, but I do think it’s important to mention the idea of reflexivity.  Music looking in on music being played.  I think this is central.  And certainly all performance must eventually be held up to a mirror…

Daft Punk - Revolution 909

In a near future post I’ll discuss half-step gearing on my vintage ~’72 Gitane and all grain home brewing, round one (no spelt! WTF!).

Long Drives

Sounds interesting.  Ben Benjamin (Ben Mullins) explains:

“It [the album] was completed in April of 2000. I made the album for myself, never expecting anyone beyond a few friends to hear it. The title is a description of what inspired it. I would take long drives on back roads to clear my head, and I couldn’t figure out what CD to play. This was before the convenience of mp3 players, and I just wanted an album that was effective in the background or foreground, allowing my attention to wander and return effortlessly. It worked for me, and it would please me a great deal if it happens to do the same for other listeners.”
