You’re right on with the taste description. My version uses a kale/spinach/chard mix from costco, half a banana, greek yogurt, flax seeds, ginger and almond milk/water. It’s not sweet by any stretch, kinda earthy I guess. Either way after a few days you just kinda drink it without bothering about the taste.
Good article. I drink smoothies everyday, and my advice is simple: DON’T OVER THINK IT
I keep a bunch of frozen fruits and veggies like kale, spinach, berries, etc. in my freezer. I can throw a handful of these into a blender with some almond milk and a scoop of pea protein powder and make a delicious smoothie (sometimes I’ll throw in a banana or cut up apple) for about 23¢.
I shall as well, to me it sounds really nice!
I used to LIVE by the Nutribullet, but for some reason, I slack off big time during the winter months.
I first heard Frightened Rabbit years ago. A girl I had a complicated relationship with gave me a mixtape with one of their songs on it (Modern Leper was the song btw). In a way they were the perfect band to describe our messy off-and-on thing, where we both cared for each other but things went wrong every time and we…
I’ve been absolutely wrecked today. It was a very busy day at work, which helped, but this has hit me incredibly hard. I’ve loved Scott’s music since the day my spouse introduced me, right when we started dating. It was the first band they shared with me.
Absolutely gutted by this. Midnight Organ Fight dropped during a genuinely dire part of my life. It meant—and means—a lot to me.
I have found I need the tributes & articles I have found online to help me through my day. It helps to construct some meaning from the appearance of meaninglessness that others are able to find similar touchstones, places of connection, deep & profound gratitude for what Scott was able to achieve — hooks into thoughts…
A girl from Glasgow first turned me onto Frightened Rabbit in 2007 when I was living in the UK — right before they released an album called The Midnight Organ Fight. Nearly every major chapter of my life has been soundtracked by them since. For a kid that has always struggled with his faith and with his relationships,…
Thanks for this write-up, Kyle. I’ve also been running through lyrics today, and finding so many things to both despair and hope in. I mourn the loss of Scott, but I don’t think the tragic ending to his battle with depression does anything to lessen the beauty of his message: we’re all fucked, but it’s okay.
Thank you for the article, Kyle.
Despite Scott’s often pitch dark lyrics about struggling with depression, I have often found myself latching on to his songs that actually did promise some kind of respite from the pain, to be found in connecting with someone. “The Twist” and “Old Old Fashioned” on Organ Fight and “Living in Color” from Mixed Drinks…
The Winter of Mixed Drinks is such an interesting album for me. I first heard it when I graduated college, and the lyrics to that triplet of songs, “Swim Until You Can’t See Land”, “The Loneliness and the Scream”, and “The Wrestle” struck me with some force. It’s always surreal to think about the other side of that…
I hope enough people star this, to make it the top comment ahead of that stupid fucking comment whining about how much money Shandling and Apatow made.
“it was a back tooth, Hank.”
Slowly but surely people are realizing the Hot Snakes are the best rock band in the world.
Thanks for that Hot Snakes. I tried listening to that Mt Eerie track and got bored of that barely-a-song. Death Camp Fantasy was the perfect corrective.
My senior year of high school I was Benny Southstreet in “Guys and Dolls”, who in the dialog leading in to the song “The Oldest Established” introduces all the various gangsters/chorus members as they come on stage to perform the number. Since it was the last night of the show, and I had like two weeks left in school,…
God damn What a Time to Be Alive is good. I never realized hearing Mac McCaughan scream “I HOPE YOU DIE SCREAMING” was something I needed.
