    Tieguanyin mostly, but I've tried a little of everything down to cheap English breakfast teabags. I haven't done enough brews to settle on one approach just yet.

    Do you enjoy the "It's Alive" series with Brad Leone, Chrono? I'm going to guess you're familiar but if not, its a pretty comical and informitive series on how to make and/or cook with fermented goods: kimchi, kombucha, garlic honey, tepache, etc.

    after a quick glance at his YouTube his face seems familiar, but I'm not aware of his name. seems like a good channel/guy.

    the book i have right now is called Basic Fermentation by Sandor Ellix Katz. the presentation of all the projects is extremely simple, which i like.

    Hey bros,

    It's funny how I became a meme for drug use, never really did a lot beyond weed, although I was v stoned during the heyday of somb. Took a long weed break when I met my wife and had my kid. A friend gave me a nug recently and my wife smoked for the first time a couple months ago. She really liked it, it helped w her pain.

    Anyway, I'm doing well, my daughter is 4yo and awesome, I'm healthy, making music, and we are visiting North Carolina this summer and considering moving there in a couple years.

    I think what people mean is you were the good cliche of a drug user. I, on the other hand, probably took the crown for bad cliche drug user. Although my view of my boarding career probably doesn’t line up with others visions.

    Anyway I understand the cliche it just is amusing to me after all the space I've gotten from that time period.

    Glad everyone is doing well!

    To be honest I was more thinking of kombucha and Frank Lloyd Wright as things that Avec (or my abstracted / board-myth image of Avec) would like as opposed to drugs in particular. But yeah, my post was kinda lazy/inarticulate, and over the years I've definitely been guilty of leaning on the easy humor of the "stoner mailman" trope.

    Yeah, this thread is the best. Here's a picture of me from last week. I was going to post it in crushing it but it feels appropriate to keep the vibe alive here.

    The loop in your latest IG post was killer, Dash. Is that a gardener project?

    Also, for someone that doesn't know how to play the keyboards but would be very interested in learning and starting to create some analog, loopy music, do you have a recommended piece of equipment? Or should I just go around to every vintage music store I can find and check out old synths?

    Haha, oh fuck, you're opening a show here in April? https://www.mississippistudios.com/event/1637144-blackwater-holylight-portland/

    I've been meaning to dive into your music for awhile now, and "splaashy entrance" off your latest project makes me think $31.20 to cop your bandcamp discography is a steal.
