Seems that there is a copy of Front Row floating around somewhere out there... I'm not going to tell you where, but if you search for frontrow1.zip you might find it on a homepage.mac.com. If you were that way inclined. I'm sure you aren't.
I've enjoyed the Green Menace only once, on a houseboat in Amsterdam. That seemed like a pretty good setting for a first taste. Next I'd like to try some of the recreations that have been reverse engineered from original bottles from the days before it was banned. You can buy those here and read about them here. Or if you are of the DIY inclination here's a recipe for Absinthe that you can make yourself, from this site (it's in german).
(wormwood, angelica root and hyssop and be bought here)
One half teaspoon coriander seeds
One quarter teaspoon caraway seeds
One pinch cardomon pods
One tablespoon fennel or anise seeds
750 ml. 100 proof vodka
In a glass container add the wormwood to the vodka. Set aside in the dark for ten days. For extra-powerful absinthe, use Everclear or 151 rum instead of vodka. This will give you an authentic green-colored tincture (the green comes from the chlorophyll, and does not indicate the presence of the active ingredient, thujone).100 proof vodka works best.
Strain out the wormwood and add all the remining herbs and spices. Wait four more days, then strain these out and serve. Best drunk straight in short shots with water chasers.
Slow Wave is a collective dream diary authored by different people from around the world, and drawn as a comic strip by
Jesse Reklaw. A new strip is uploaded every week. There are well over a hundred there...
Caroline Calvin created the 22 foot high
by 12 foot wide canvas in seven days using 35 pairs of jeans. The wearable art ranges in waist sizes from
32-33-34-38, and each jean is hand numbered inside the front pocket.
Each “Love and Peace 501® Jean” is adorned at the waist with a vintage
button from Calvin’s personal collection gathered from her travels
around the world, and packaged with an 11-by-182 inch “Japanese style”
scroll that visually tells the design and development process in 26
images. All images featured on the scroll were shot by Peter Calvin.
Whenever I walk around chimes (and mind you, I do that, alot) , there’s always a Singapore Art Museum (SAM) sticker to be spotted somewhere.
The sticker’s actually SAM’s entry ticket ($3/visit, by the way); Chimes is just down the street from SAM.
The sticker reads “Art, No Experience Is Necessary.”
Next time you're cashed up, shroomed out, and wandering the streets of Amsterdam you should wander over to stay at one of the Lute Suites, designed by Marcel Wanders. From 275 euros a night - not bad for what you get...
