From WWE.com:

WWE is saddened to learn of the passing of William Moody, aka Paul Bearer. Moody made his WWE debut in 1991 as the manager of The Undertaker and went on to become a memorable part of WWE over the course of the next 20 years.

Our deepest condolences go out to Moody’s family, friends and fans. (BEARER’S OFFICIAL ALUMNI PAGE)

This sucks. If you haven’t watched his shoot with Jim Cornette yet, drop everything and do that now. – Dusty

Here is the new Iron man 3 trailer. Grab some tissues

Iron man 2 was unnecessarily criticized for being too confusing and too drawn out. Well, those people are stupid. This isn’t about Iron man 2 though since we now have a new Iron man 3 preview and it finally gives us the plot. Tony Stark finally gets his comeuppance for going public and it harms the people around him. The target on his back or chest or whatever (anyone else noticed that is exactly what the arclight is anyway?) finally is going to cause harm. It appears to tie in to The Avengers as well, which shows how marvel is just light years ahead of DC on the movie front. Anyway, from the trailer this movie has actual emotional resonance as well as some big action. Now is the time to get fully hyped and if that final scene doesn’t do it then you got problems. Oh and yes that is the Hulkbuster armor at the end. Present boners now. -Jeremy

#SippyTimeBeer Review – Cincinnati’s #Bockfest Part I

IMG_20130302_171237

The trip this past weekend to Cincinnati for their annual Bockfest is worth two posts. I won’t bore you with details of my trip to Ikea although I am typing this article from my newly purchased lap top table. I’ll be doing a Saturday post which is about beer and food. The Sunday post will be about the Prohibition tour I went on and more beer & food. It was a packed two day trip. I’m sure something similar will be coming after our trip this weekend to Nashville. My girl & I will be meeting Jeremy down there so watch out.

Our first image of Cincinnati is the above picture. My girl & I were heading for our hotel when we ran into these people seeking justice. I still haven’t bothered to look up what the strike or demonstration was all about. I don’t care enough. They were probably out at the bars later in the evening with us. We ran into them as we were trying to find Skyline Chili to eat at. I mention it because I love it. A hot dog with runny chili (beanless) with piles of stringy cheddar cheese. What’s not to love?

After getting settled in the hotel, we headed to Cafe Martin which is in the Garfield Suites. We met my neighbors and their friend Sweet Tea. Yep, we actually called him that. I have no idea what his real name is. My younger brother & wife also met us there. We went there because of the tapping of a limited edition Moerlein Blockhead Bock. The brew master for Christian Morelein, Richard Dube, was on hand to serve it. Much to my surprise, when we got there, they were serving it for free for the first line. You can’t start off the night better than that. I suppose it could have though. After considering the rest of the night, this beer was the worst one. It was still a good beer.

Our next stop was Arnold’s Bar & Grill. It was opened in 1861 and looks every day of it in a very good way. It was an absolute zoo. I want to go back when it’s not that crazy. I wasn’t going to just come in and out of the bar though. I tried the Triple Digit Gravitator. It ended up being the best beer I had that night. I can’t find the percentage of alcohol but I’m pretty sure it’s really high because that kicked my ass. Despite moving everywhere to avoid waiters and fellow patrons was worth it. So was finding this gem of a sign in the two user restroom that was maybe twice the size of your average half bath. Kudos to my brother for spotting it but doppy didn’t take a picture so I actually went to the restroom specifically to take this picture.
