OSM and thrift store find


“The dead belong to
The live people who claim them
Most obsessively.”
― adapted from James Ellroy’s My Dark Places

Name: Cotswold Spring OSM
Type: mild
Venue: Four Candles, Oxford

Review/notes: James Ellroy’s backstory makes mine look like some sort of Disney movie so, when he came to speak at Blackwell’s Bookstore in Oxford, we had to go.  He’s quite a prick and not especially eloquent, but the boy can sure write.

I met Jackie at the Fork Handles after work to decide where to grab some dinner.  She already had some wine and was reading the liner notes on a couple of CD’s she picked up in a charity shop, so I perused the offerings and settled on an Old Sodbury Mild ahead of our evening listening to the Old Sod…Not So Mild.

The OSM is awesome, by the way — like a bitter cup of black coffee.
