That’s Reeeeeeeeal Nice

PUNCH explains the weird inside-joke history of the “Turkey Dew”:

In June 2017, Seaburg visited Kentucky to attend Camp Runamok, the annual “summer camp for bartenders.” At the Wild Turkey Distillery in Lawrenceburg, Seaburg attended the screening of the brand’s latest Matthew McConaughey commercial and was amused by the actor’s famously unique vernacular. Later, Seaburg and some fellow attendees decided to look up the video on YouTube to see what other people were saying. One seemingly innocuous comment would set everything in motion: “Y’all need to try some wild turkey [sic] mixed with Mountain Dew. I call it a Turkey Dew. Trust me you will like it.”

The Runamok group immediately made a Mountain Dew run and began dispensing the drinks as a “layback” (a shot poured directly into someone’s mouth), accompanied by a line McConaughey utters in his Texas stoner drawl: “That’s reeeeal nice.”

I love bizarre highballs and laybacks so I fear that it won’t be long until I demand one of these, even if I have to BYOD.

Imperfections and Differences

I think the biggest idea of Russian Doll would be that we start to talk about removing some shame around the underlying idea of our own brokenness, and realizing that we’re all broken in our own ways and that’s part of our power and our beauty: our imperfections and our differences.

Punk Flyers Digital Collection at the Cornell Library

Just discovered that the Cornell University Library has a digital collection of over 2000 punk, new wave, and hardcore show flyers.

Cornell’s Rare and Manuscript Division offers deep collections on modern music, including a growing number of archives on punk and post-punk music and culture. The show and event advertising flyers in this digital archive are drawn from two of Cornell’s prominent punk collections:  The Johan Kugelberg punk collection, which includes hundreds of fliers, posters, zines, original art and more, and the Aaron Cometbus Punk and Underground Press Collection, which includes punk, new wave, and hardcore flyers and other ephemera from the San Francisco Bay area and beyond.
