I hope this is a blog on creativity, authenticity, and joy. On both the silly and the sublime. Reflection. Critique. Instigation. Ideally, it's ultimately about the human condition.


Ikiré Jones F/W ‘14 “Of Saints & Savages”

"To whom it may concern. This is a challenge to the zealously held belief that Africa is a monolithic village in need of perpetual saving. This is an open assault upon the delusions of those who cry endlessly of desolate stomachs and doorways darkened by disease. This is a public disavowing of all who think the cradle of civilization has nothing more to offer than unmolested raw materials and an army of open palms awaiting aid.

Further, this is a disclaimer that upon becoming dissatisfied with the myriad fictions which are daily presented to us as fact, we have henceforth resolved to tell our own stories. Loudly. No longer will we dine on a bounty of half-baked biases. No more will we sip from hoses gushing hypocrisy and hogwash. There are those who look past Africa’s beauty in the hopes of seeing savagery; so that they may preen and posture as saints. We are the children of tomorrow. And we are here to assure that their disappointment awaits.”

Been saving this Oktoberfest beer and tonight was the night: after a long weekend away, I uncorked Element Brewing Company’s malt-rich Altoberfest. Hops sneak up on you and lay just below this beer’s luxurious, roasted caramel notes. Very, very good.

Two excellent beers (see me getting superlative?!!) from Raleigh’s Trophy Brewing Co.  On top, the aptly named Best in Show, a citra-hopped saison.  Then I had the Double Death Spiral, a puckery, powerful but also incredibly drinkable IPA.  Damn.Good.Beers!
