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

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.
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!
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.”
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!
Well, it’s all over including the shouting! The finale of Breaking Bad was as perfect as it could have been, right down the inclusion of that Badfinger song. Yes, it’s a bittersweet farewell, but AMC has been nice enough to give all fans the chance to create a personal a souvenir of this great show.
Everyone is familiar with Breaking Bad’s iconic logo, which uses the symbols for Bromine and Barium on the periodic table of elements as part of its design. Ever wondered what your name would look like with the same treatment? Then try out the Breaking Bad Name Lab on Facebook. Once you’ve seen what your name looks like when transformed by elemental symbols, you can share it on Facebook and Twitter or do with it what you wish!

Well, the day we’ve been anticipating with a mix of excitement and dread has come – the day when we must finally bid farewell to the greatest TV Show Ever in the Universe of All time: Breaking Bad. Are you hosting a viewing party or perhaps even a BBQ to mourn/celebrate while watching the finale? 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!!

Do you love AMC’s Breaking Bad? I sure do. As we count down each weekly episode (2 down; 6 to go) to the series’ ultimate, revelatory conclusion, everyone wants to know which of their favorite characters will make it out alive (I am cheering hard for Jesse and Saul)! The waiting in suspense is excruciating, but you can make it sweeter by whipping up a batch of this Heisenberg’s Blue Rock Candy to enjoy while viewing the greatest television show ever in the universe of all time!
Remember, Rock candy takes patience and temperature precision, so #TreadLightly. Now, let’s cook!
Heisenberg’s Blue Rock Candy Recipe
Line a baking sheet with foil and spray the foil with nonstick cooking spray.
In a medium saucepan, combine the water, corn syrup and granulated sugar. Place the pan over medium-high heat and stir until the sugar dissolves. Bring the mixture to a boil. As soon as mixture comes to a boil, stop stirring and brush down the sides with a wet pastry brush to prevent sugar crystals from forming. Insert a candy thermometer.
Continue to cook the candy without stirring until it reads exactly 285 F (140 C) on the thermometer. *Do not overcook it, or it will start to take on a caramel color and your candy might turn green! Once the temperature hits 285, take the pan off the heat and let it sit just until bubbles stop breaking on the surface. Add the flavoring of choice and a drop of food coloring. Stir everything together.
Pour the candy onto the prepped baking sheet and tilt it so that it runs into a thin layer. Let it set completely at room temperature.
Once the candy is set, break it into small pieces by hand. For the full “crystal meth” experience, place the candy pieces in medium zip-top bags and crush them lightly with a rolling pin. Authenticity! Enjoy and remember to store any leftover Candy in airtight containers!
Thanks again to The Savory Dot Com for this Recipe!
