I've often wondered when someone would claim that the best "tweak" for your HT wasn't a cable/video card mod/screen/etc...but a well rolled joint.

I concur with this!!

Yeah but for some reason everything looks out of convergence.

And in my case I'd be asleep after the opening credits.

Dee,
thanks for the tip on the drink, I went with the grape Gordons and it was pretty good. I have an idea, why don't we have the weekly cocktail hour on Sunday afternoons??? Everyone can post what their drinking and what their watching in HD. Dee, you gave me the idea with your earlier post. Thanks.....Now I can't wait until Sunday and the AVS Cocktail hour....

The 'AVS Cocktail Hour'. I like it!

Right now trying to kill a headache with 3 aspirin and a screwdriver so even if the aspirin doesn't work, it doesn't much matter...

Hi demon,
I so far have gone three months and the keg stayed pretty fresh. Usually I would go through a keg every month and a half but since the wife became pregnant, my beer consumption is down. Beer technically never spoils, warmer temps greater than 38 degrees can encourage fermentation which can change the flavor. That is all. I use CO2 as my driving gas. Some prefer Nitrogen.

The cost savings is huge. Each barrel holds 165 beers 12 oz beers (6.875 cases). I purchase each keg for $49 (Miller Lite). The equivalent in cases costs me around $14.00 each. Each keg will save you around $47 in beer costs. The CO2 runs me $13 each time I fill the 5lb tank (each 5lb tank lasts about 7 kegs or so). Electric costs wash as you have to keep both cold anyway. So after 11 kegs, the cooler pays itself off and then you are drinking for around .29 cents a beer. Not too bad. Plus it is a great conversation piece, and your circle of friends will grow. The other benefit is less garbage from the lack of cans and bottles to dispose of. Just think, you will be doing something for the environment!!!

Here is a great source of info: http://beveragefactory.com/faqs/draftbeer.shtml

Electric costs are probably lower since you're not opening the fridge 165 times. (or fewer if you're a double fisted drinker)

where is the best place to shop for a keg cooler? How much does it add to electricity bill? Thanks, Eric

Check out your local appliance store. The electric bill is slightly affected.

As for myself:

Jones Bubblegum Soda with Gordon's Deluxe Vodka (60/40 split).

Current time is 1:30 pm, and I'm ready for a refill.

I thought about a Bubblegum Soda and Vodka mix but decided it was insane. Maybe I will try it after all.

post #110 of 2457
Looks like the tuner stopped on the Yankees game. Now, it's either Jack and coke or Johnny Red for the rest of the evening. (What I have on hand)

I'm back...and 18 Coors later I need to tell myself that "it's only a game..."

It's only a game...
post #113 of 2457
Sorry to be the downer here, but in case there are young readers in this thread... I just watched two stories on the news about college students that drank themselves to death... literally. Eat, drink, and be merry. Just do so wisely.

I now return you to your regually scheduled sloshfest

I need my HD and AVS Forums!

I can stop any time I want. I don't need you or anyone else telling Me how much HD and AVS Forums I should have...

Have we developed a 12-step program, yet, for people in this state?

Hi, I'm ramcm7.

Hi, ramcm7!

And I am an AVS Forum addict. It started a few years ago when I was looking for little tidbits of information. The other members were well versed in the AV arts and sciences and just made me come back for more. (Enablers.) I now find myself keeping a AVS Forumn window open at all times on my PC. Do I have a problem?

Now, imagine if you had 18 real beers... I doubt you'd be able to do any typing at all!

Real beer enthusiasts don't waste time with 'lite' beer... I'd rather drink water...



(Okay... let the beer bashing begin!!)

Anyone see Emo Phillips on Conan the other night? (Mark Cuban episode)

He said (paraphrased): "You always see the recovering alcoholics drinking O'Douls - that's not very smart - you wouldn't give a recovering pedophile a midget dressed in a cub scout uniform would you?"
post #120 of 2457
I used to enjoy drinking Screwdrivers until my doctor warned me of the calories in such a drink

So I switched to Grey Goose Vanilla with diet Sprite
