The sent is very unique from other whiskeys

very very nice whiskeys, and were reasonably cheap compared to the rest of the wishlist

Whiskey Galore

have found a new passion... well, more of an old one....

however i have a new taste
sweet sweet whiskey.... 

kind of all started after i went to "dram fest 09" which was a big big get together of different whiskeys at the town hall in Christchurch.
had a total of 280 different bottles open, and available for tasting over the three day event as well as other things happening like the cocktail competition.

basically it was a good starting point to learn a lot about the different whiskeys and different flavours etc.

finally found my favourite single molt of the day, BENRIACH 20 YEAR OLD 
NZ $122.

so after getting paid last week (yes i got a job) i "Invested" in a bottle of Johnnie walker green label, which is basically a mix of 30 different whiskeys into a single bottle.
purchasing this has really just made things worse though....

so here is my wish list for the coming months.
keep in mind the more expensive ones probably wont happen:

so thanks to this I'm having to save.... 
this week 115
hopefully next week the same amount so i can have my first 3 bottles shipped out

Also, if you are interested in whiskey tasting, or picking up a bottle (exotic or not) go to whiskey galore, as they know a shit load about all of them.
They were also the ones to put on dram fest, which wont happen again until 2011

also, this is the link to the dramfest which is just about the event and how it was etc

there was also a photo of some "Adelphi selection" bottles of whiskey.
Adelphi is basically a company that buy the best casks over the year of brewing, then mature them till they see fit, then bottle and sell them.
The thing is, they only buy so many casks, so once they are gone, that's it....
so they tend to start at $200 per bottle, and go upwards of $1800

expense... but ohhh sooo good.....

im going to shut up and stop rambling on about whiskey....

There is good T.V and then there is GREAT TV

television is great.
New zealand television is actually not too bad either...
there are shows that are entertaining... e.g, true blood
then there are shows that are good... boston legal, & heroes  good
shows that are great... gossip girl, house, fringe, how i met your mother good

and there are shows that you wait for the hour in which it will play in america... then an hour later are online.

Grey's anatomy is one of these shows.
one of the shows you swear gets better and better every episode until you are up till 5 am waiting for a torrent to finish.

What is it to be male

what is it to be male these days....

6000 years ago, you were a male if you could swing a club sooo hard into another mans face that it cracked his scull....
these days.... its if you have a girl and a steady income your a man....
how times have changed...

but what makes a man these days????
someone with a deploma in xxxscience...?
someone that sleeps with a woman every night?
someone that sleeps with a different woman every night???
this is the problem.... how do you know when you have become a man???
when u can legaly buy a smoke? when u stop getting asked for id???

when u break another mans skull with your bear hands???
when you make love to a woman???

in todays socilety i dont believe we ever become men until we are dead...
were just boys playing at being men...

how do we evolve??
how do we become more than boys chacing a dream?

personally i think were all fucked... damned to walk a boys life until we dye... only then to be remembered as me...
so what can we do???

seriously??? what else is there without us getting arrested??? drinking a yard glass full of bear?? does that make us a man....

Simple plan

for those of you that dont know about the election... or the long run effects etc... heres the most simple advise you will get

There are 3 catagories:

If you are studying: VOTE LABOUR
they will pay out the most and help you the most
If you are employed and earning income: VOTE NATIONAL
they will protect your income the best. also the best for New Zealand economics in the long run.

basically it comes down to which brings you the best return.
eg, 5% tax cut and 3% incresased interest on student loan....
5% tax= $400  3% loan interest=$500

However, my plan is simple. Vote labour for now... then go to canada
