This has been some year for music for me. It all started with the discovery of the Reckless Love. They are a glam rock band that sound as if they are stuck in 1989 – but they are absolutely fantastic at what they do. Normally bands sound like one band that they are trying to “copy” – Reckless Love sound like many: Def Leppard, Poison, Motley Crue, Dokken – you name it!!
Killepitsch Herbal Liqueur Review
German Herbal Liqueur
84 Proof (42% ABV)
We’ve said more than once on this site that Jagermeister is the liqueur of choice around the office. We love the dark color, badass reputaiton and grimace-inducing flavor, plus the fact that it gives us a completely different kind of buzz than any other booze is a selling point as well. We’ve never reviewed Jager on this site, mostly because once we start drinking it we don’t stop, and it’s tough to write a review while blacked out. We recently got our hands on a bottle of Killepitsch, a similar herbal liqueur made in Dusseldorf, Germany, that was touted as giving Jager a run for its money. We were skeptical, but we were ready to give it a try.
The color was dark brown, almost black, with a reddish tint, and it left a syrupy coating on the glass.
The label says Killepitsch contains 90 fruits, berries and herbs, and we would say that sounds about right. When we smelled it, it was complex and strong, with a heavy tinge of anise, giving it a licorice smell. We also detected a lot of gentian, the stuff that gives Angostura bitters and Moxie soda their taste. A mixture of Moxie, bitters and Jager? We must’ve died and gone to drunk heaven.
Thick and syrupy, this stuff was sweet up front with a bitter, dry aftertaste. Licorice, anise, gentian, mint, root beer, Moxie – there were so many flavors, it was almost overwhelming, but the Jager comparison definitely fit. Overall, Killepitsch seemed sweeter and thicker than Jager, but both had the same aggressive, take no prisoners flavor, if that makes any sense. Someone who drinks Jager a lot will be able to tell the difference, but the typical drinker won’t – and if you hate the nectar that is the ‘Meister, you’ll hate this stuff too.
We liked it on the rocks, but it seemed like a pretty damned good substitute in a Jager Bomb, if you’re in a pinch or just want to try something new.
Definitely in the running to enter our regular rotation, this stuff was like a doppleganger of Jager (that’s a little shout-out to all you D&D players in the house). We liked this one a lot, especially chilled or on the rocks. Plus, it’s stronger than Jager (84 proof, as compared to 70), so the blackouts will come even more quickly!

So Christmas eve as almost passed. Kids were delighted with Santa’s visit. Me, I’m enjoying some Killepitsch. It’s really hitting the spot.
I bought a new pair of trousers for the christmas party.
This is funny. Not sure what I think about the whole leaks thing, but his arrest was a joke. I know these are serious allegations but come on…
So I gave in and got my friend to get me an iPad on his travels. I know I was pondering this for quite a while even blogging about it last week. Last weekend I was wandering through the shops and had a little play with the Galaxy Tab. It was nice looking, but it just didn’t have the “wow” factor that the iPad has IMHO. So I relented and bought one. Continue reading “iPad – so I’ve caved in but I’m not regretting it for a second”
That is the question. I have been toying with the idea of an iPad for a long time & the crunch has arrived. A friend is going to the USA this week and I cannot decide whether go go ahead and buy one or not. What do you think?

This is pretty cool, although the post is quite cool. What a great way to raise facebook profile.
This is a pretty interesting article / presentation. Makes me sad how the boom in the mobile internet has not been driven by Nokia. The potential has been there for years (I paid a bill to the bank with my phone back in 2000 FFS – it’s not new) but we have not been the drivers. Hopefully this will change!
The Steve Jobs factor is intriguing. I am optimistic that we have our messiah in Mr. Elop.
I seem to have gotten myself into a little situation with my current web hosts. I have been using them for a few years and purchase hosting on a yearly basis. About this time a couple of years ago when the domain was set to expire because I had credit card set the purchase was made automatically.
