Heisenberg Limited Edition Blue Ice Vodka

Blue Ice Vodka
“Knock Knock”

A limited-edition line of Heisenberg Blue Ice Vodka, inspired by the hit television series Breaking Bad, is currently available for sale in California, and online at Reserve Bar Dot Com, with nationwide sales coming soon. Three special edition bottles of Heisenberg by Blue Ice feature distinct graphics and infamous quotes such as “Say My Name,” “The One Who Knocks,” and “Tread Lightly.”

Continuing in the spirit of brilliant homage, Observer Dot Com just published a side-splitting list of The 10 Most Appropriate Times to Drink Blue Ice’s ‘Breaking Bad’ Vodka, which you can read for yourself at This Link. My Favorite:

Oh, are two killer twins after you? With axes? Because that is a horrifyingly specific weapon to use in this day and age. Do they have you cornered in a parking lot? After a peaceful day of shopping, no less? How awful. Oh there you go, you killed one with your car. Is the other twin bearing down on you, slowly, axe raised as you fumble for your gun? How very stressful. You deserve a nice chilled vodka, my friend. Then I suggest you break the bottle over the bumper of your Jeep Commando and prepare to fight.

Cheers!

Video Clip of the Week: Milk Music, “No, Nothing, My Shelter”


Ten Things I thought about while watching the Video for Milk Music’s video for “No, Nothing, My Shelter”:

    1. My Favorite Pair of Black Ankle Boots
    2. Burning Man
    3. The Joshua Tree (Album)
    4. Joshua Trees
    5. Those Hilariously Awful Student Films We Made Back in College
    6. College in General
    7. The Stage Make Up of Various Members of Kiss
    8. The Desert
    9. All Desert Scenes From Breaking Bad
    10. Drugs

Like The Beatles before them, Milk Music has decided to stop doing live performances. Here is their statement to that effect:

“We, Milk Music, have decided to not plan anymore live performances for the foreseeable future. This is an artistic decision and should not reflect on our existence as a musical group. We’re currently exploring the wonders of video, as well as recording our next record, Mystic 100’s, a possible double album of intense beauty. A series of videos shall follow it’s release”

So, it’s not like you have nothing to look forward to. Enjoy!

Sacred Gallery Presents Re-Thrifted

Rethrifted Elephant Sculpture

The idea of “repurposing” — taking something old and giving it a new life — is an exciting concept that creates a world of possibilities. Sacred Gallery explores those possibilities (with an inclination towards the darker side of imagination and reality) with a highly amusing new group exhibit entitled Re-Thrifted. To create Re-Thrifted more than two dozen artists started with Thrift Store art finds and recreated the original piece as a new work of art. There are both paintings and sculptures in the exhibit and it was so much fun to view the show and compare the new artworks to their more humble beginnings, as many of the pieces are hung alongside tiny prints showing the pieces that inspired their genesis.

Virgin Leia

An excellent example of this type of work in its simplest form is Virgin Leia, a kitschy painting of the Virgin Mary recreated as a portrait of Princess Leia from Star Wars. Appropriate!

Renaissance Undead

Parisian Street Scene with Pop Culture Icons

The painting above features a picturesque Parisian Street Cafe that has been infused with images from pop culture, turning it into a surreal nightmare. Check out some of the cool details from this work in the shots below.

Zombies Plus Michael

Note that this Herd of Zombies includes Michael Jackson as he appeared in the Video for “Thriller.” So clever! If this awesome painting wasn’t already sold I would have snapped it up in a heartbeat!

Demon Statue

What was once an angelic choirboy has transformed into a demonic embodiment of the proverbial principle to “See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil.”

Drag In Dragon

A menacing, medieval Dragon invades an otherwise idyllic forest scene in this painting by the artist Gothic Hangman.

You can tell that the participating artists were very inspired and that everybody had a blast creating their art for Re-Thrifted. Kudos to Kevin Wilson at Sacred Gallery for hosting yet another very cool show!

The Re-Thrifted Group Exhibit is on Display only Through November 3oth, 2013 at Sacred Gallery, Located at 424 Broadway, 2nd Floor (Between Howard and Canal Streets), so be sure to add it to your list of “Must See Art” while you can!

If so, The Savory has been kind enough to help you relax and untangle the knots in your stomachs with an epic burger recipe: The Hoisin Burger (aka The Heisenberger)!!

Sweet, tangy and spicy hoisin sauce kicks up beef patties and spices up mayo in this Breaking Bad-inspired beef burger recipe. You can make these as regular burgers or sliders for a group.

Here’s what you’ll need:

· 1lb ground beef

· ½ green onion, minced

· 2 cloves garlic, minced

· 2 teaspoons cilantro, minced

· 2 Tablespoons ginger, minced

· 1 Tablespoon hoisin sauce

· 1 teaspoon sesame oil

· 1 Tablespoon soy sauce

· Black pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients, being careful not to over-mix. Shape into patties and grill to desired done-ness. Makes 4 quarter-pound burgers. If desired, top with Marie’s Purple Slaw and chase with a couple of chilled Blue Sky Cocktails!!
