TBR + TBD: To Be Read + To Be Drunk | August 2014 [video]

Posted on by Caleb J. Ross in Video | Leave a comment

It’s a new month and a (mostly) new list of things to read and things to drink. I say “mostly” new because once again I failed to read White Noise by Don DeLillo. But I have good reason. That reason: a read along with Rincey (http://www.youtube.com/rinceyreads) featuring Donna Tartt’s The Secret History. I’m committing to just one book this month, because I always seem to let myself down anyway. Set the bar low, is my new mantra.

Also, I’m annoucing my new beer review channel at http://www.youtube.com/ToBeDrunkList. Head over there. Subscribe. Hear me talk about beer.

What I read: Incarnations by Chris Deal

What I’ll be reading:

  • NOT White Noise by Don DeLillo (seriously this time)
  • The Secret History by Donna Tartt

What I drank: Imperial Doughnut Break from Evil Twin

What I didn’t drink:

  • Rubaeus Raspberry Ale from Founders Brewing Co.
  • Love Child #4 from Boulevard Brewing Co.
  • Championship Ale from Boulevard Brewing Co.
  • Imperial Biscotti Break from Evil Twin

What I’ll be drinking:
I can’t say. Head over to my new beer review channel at http://www.youtube.com/ToBeDrunkList to find out

We Play SupposiStories and ask “How did that get in there?” [video]

Posted on by Caleb J. Ross in Video | Leave a comment

Emergency room doctors probably see a lot of strange things in peoples’ butts. Even stranger, they probably have to endure a lot of strange excuses for how said things got inside said butts.

Today, we come up with a few possible reasons in a segment hilariously titled SupposiStories: How’d That Get in There?

Book Vs. Beer – Shakespeare Oatmeal Stout vs Shakespeare, Playwright [video]

Posted on by Caleb J. Ross in Video | Leave a comment

I present the first of what I hope to be a long-running series: Book vs. Beer. The premise is simple. We (me and Gordon Highland) find beers that have literary origins. Then we talk about the beer as well as the source material.

For this first episode we discuss Shakespeare Oatmeal Stout (from Rogue Brewery) and Shakespeare, the playwright (from his mother’s womb). Watch to find out why I don’t like Shakespeare.

We Play: Famous Drunk Authors Driving Drunk…Again [video]

Posted on by Caleb J. Ross in Video | Leave a comment

We get #Faulknered with this, the second edition of We Play: Famous Drunk Authors Driving Drunk.

Authors love to drink. It’s the safest stereotype in the world. So we thought, should famous authors be stopped for drinking and driving, what would they say to avoid jail time? Chances are, they would be more eloquent than we are in this video.

BOOK TAG – 10 Influential Books [video]

Posted on by Caleb J. Ross in Video | Leave a comment

I was tagged by MartheBozart to do this 10 Influential Books tag. The basic idea is that I choose 10 books that have been influential to me in some way. I decided to group my 10 selections into books that influenced me as 1) a reader, 2) a writer, and 3) a…well, this tier is miscellaneous.

Finally finishing a Donna Tartt novel: A video book review of The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt [video]

Posted on by Caleb J. Ross in Video | Leave a comment

A video book review of The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt – The Goldfinch is a big book, both in physical size and ambition. What initially seems like a straightforward story of a teenage boy dealing with the death of his mother turns into an epic coming of age story that teases the us, the reader, with where our emotional investment should reside.
