Cautionary Tales

Landscape with the Fall of Icarus, Pieter Bruegel, c.1558, as contemplated in "The Man Who Fell to Earth."

When we first discussed doing a blog about drinking and the associated life, we thought cautionary tales might be an apt title. I mean, how many times had we found ourselves talking of the mistakes made after a night drinking? Or, how lonely and desperate it could make us feel while doing it? Countless. Of course drinking doesn't have to be that way, and often isn't, but if we're going to do it over and over with mixed results then there has to be reflection.

That's why it felt odd to just watch Bowie's first movie "The Man Who Fell to Earth", which is its own cautionary tale about the excesses of humanity... namely Beefeater Gin and TV.

So, along with all the neat alcohol-related things will try to post about here, we'll also inevitably talk about the things that - to paraphrase Oscar Wilde - leave one wanting more.
