Thought of the Day #7 ~ New Quote

Due to different experiences I’ve had in life, and also based on an aspect of my personality, I came up with a new quote tonight, it goes:

“You may be the gasoline, but I’ll be the match that strikes to set you ablaze.”

This quote goes towards my strive to always be someone who takes pride in not being like everyone else, and also takes a stand for what’s right. It’s directed to those that try to force ideologies on me, and others; or try to make me/others live a life that they want us to; and the backlash they’ll receive. It refers as well, that no matter what they try to do, I’ll personally unleash my own reign fire (hypothetically of course!) upon them to show that nobody owns me, but me. That I will stand up for myself and others. Though at first the quote can sound a little harsh, this is really made in a positive light; it’s meant to help people who are oppressed by others; and give them motivation they may need.

I enjoy trying to inspire others and make them think more openly. If you have any opinions to this quote, please feel free to write them below! As always, thanks for the support!

Brew of the Week: #1- Huckleberry Cream Ale

Welcome to Brew of the Week! The first brew for my new weekly review is Huckleberry Cream Ale. Its brewed and canned by the Laughing Dog Brewing Co. This is an Idaho brand, made in the city of Ponderay. This is a darker ale, which I’m not typically a fan of, however when it’s made; it ferments with real and freshly picked huckleberries. This mixture made it appeal to a person such as myself.

When you first take a sip, the strength of the wheat ale essence hits you, but then the flavor of the huckleberries begins to melt in with the flavor, smoothing it out. The creaminess then hits and leaves you with a fantastic overall tasting brew.

Once it’s swallowed, the after taste immediately kicks in and leaves you with the great flavor of huckleberries.

This isn’t a brew that you want to just chug or drink quickly. It’s great for sipping, or taking a hearty mouthful to enjoy the quality mix of ingredients.

Overall out of a scale of 1-10 (10 being best) I’d give this ale an 8.5/10.This would be a rare score from me for any darker ale; I suggest giving it a try if your area carries it, or if you find yourself in the Pacific Northwest of the country. Keep an eye out for next week’s review!

Fall Of A Tyrant – Song Sample

This song is called The Darkest Glow, and it’s by a friend of mine’s band: Fall Of A Tyrant. Some of you may have heard of them. They’ve allowed me to post this track to give a sample of their music. I have an article coming out about them soon. But until then, enjoy this song!
