  1. Looks like Gold Coast is closest to you Pres. Nov. 21.
  2. Of 20 or so songs, 7 or 8 were Talking Heads material. If you really don't like his solo stuff, it may not be for you. But it may be...
  3. Hi All! I had the great good fortune of attending the Saturday night show in CT, USA. It's now somewhere in my top 5 or 10 lifetime concert experiences...and I've attended more than a few musical events in my time on this rock. Fantastic musicianship and classic weird Byrne choreography on a very sparse stage. Looks like he's coming to UK/Europe in late October and early November, and Asia/NZ/Aus in November as well. I can't recommend it enough!
  4. "Best" is awfully subjective. And impossible for me to choose. The soundtracks to some of the favorite hours of my life? Some Grateful Dead and Jerry Garcia Band shows. Floyd's Momentary Lapse of Reason Tour. David Gilmour solo. Jimmy Cliff. Robert Hunter solo a few years ago. Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers. Mark Knopfler. Pat Benatar. Tull. Johnny Lang. And a very long list of others. Recent wonderful discovery: Marcus King Band I'm really looking forward to seeing David Byrne in September. All reports point to his current being a terrific tour.
  5. As has been mentioned, it refers to the varnished box...a holdover from when there was a Partagas 898 in an unvarnished box as well.
  6. All Time? Dunhill Cabinetta Current Production, but expensive? Cohiba Lancero Somewhat available and won't break the bank? Partagas 898V
  7. Other than its strength, nothing about that cigar tasted like a Cohiba to me. Guess I should start smoking more cigars, and get my palette back up to speed.
  8. It's an unfortunate mix up ( I would go so far as to say a mistake), that effectively puts me out of the running for the competition, but I don't for a second think that there was any intent to mislead. I'm grateful for the community, and for a wonderful vendor.

    Blind Tasting 2018 Cigar Number 3 Reveal

    It's an unfortunate mix up ( I would go so far as to say a mistake), that effectively puts me out of the running for the competition, but I don't for a second think that there was any intent to mislead. I'm grateful for the community, and for a wonderful vendor.
  10. I found #3 unbalanced, with a fair amount of bitterness, and a lot of youthful tanins. I'm trying to taste through that, and taking my best guess based on some familiar flavors...
  11. Ok, so it's "Dead & Company yesterday in history," but did anybody attend/stream last night's show in Camden, NJ? The second Set was an awful lot of fun to listen to. Much better than the tour opener we were at in Mansfield, MA the other night
  12. Not if I had all the money in the world.
  13. And I too would recommend it. It's one of the first books I read at the recommendation of the folks at Zen Mountain Monastery in Mount Tremper, NY some 20 years ago. I once had a very regular, twice daily practice...it's much more sporadic these days. It brought and still brings a great deal of calm and focus to my life.

    Rotation

    I agree. I think of it as choosing from the pool of what I have on hand that I like and is ready to smoke.
