Kitty Dunn

What does Kitty have to say?


 


I'll drink to that (song)

What a dilemma! I've got Van Halen cranked up loud on my boom box, but have no idea what form of alcohol I should be slamming to go along with it.

That problem is now a thing of the past, thanks to a fun new website called "Drinkify." I'm assuming that the name is some kind of take-off on the music sharing platform Spotify. I've never explored that world, but I will tell you that "Drinkify" is right up my alley.

Simply type the name of a band or artist into the search engine, and Drinkify comes up with the perfect match. I figured, like most of these types of sites (think the band name generator type sites), that there would be a finite number of combinations. I also figured their selection of bands that would be included would be limited. But it's not!

I typed in John Hiatt, and the site suggested I drink 1 oz. of Canadian Club whiskey, serve on the rocks, stir vigorously and serve with a  sparkler.

A sparkler? Nice touch. What about R.E.M.? One PBR, serve cold. Not imaginative enough, I thought, for one of my favorite bands.  

For Eau Claire native Bon Iver, this is what popped up: 1 bottle red wine at room temperature, garnished with a twist of grapefruit. Hmm..sounds weird, but fitting.

The cocktail to drink with the folk music of Joan Baez was 1 oz Canadian Club whiskey (ooh a repeat)..but mixed with 10 ounces of wheatgrass juice. Much better.

And what should I drink with that aforementioned Van Halen cassette?  1 bottle of Jack Daniels Tennessee whiskey. "Serve on rocks," it suggested. "Garnish with cocktail monkey."

Now I will never see another cocktail monkey without thiking of Eddie Van Halen.

Kitty's night in a haunted house
Before Friday, my only experience with a haunted house, commercial or otherwise, was at the Recreation Department in Stevens Point when I was a teenager, and as I remember I was FREAKED out. So I was a little nervous when Jonathan and I were asked to...

You might want to see "Once" twice
I had the opportunity to go see "Once" at Overture Hall last night, and I guess the two word summary of my review could be "weirdly awesome." The story isn't too complicated, which is good because I sometimes had a hard time understanding the...

World's Worst iPod: Stonebolt "I Will Still Love You"
It seems Kitty was all alone in the Canadian wilderness with her love for the 1978 hit "I Will Still Love You" by Stonebolt. It only made it up to #29, so it seems a lot of folks didn't have the fond memories of the song that she did. With amazing...

World's Worst iPod: Neil Diamond "Yesterday's Songs"
Even Neil Diamond fans didn't seem to want to throw their support behind this one. "Yesterday's Songs" with its cheesy backup singers may be the most cliche song the guy does! It made it up to #11 on the charts in 1981/82 and was #1 on the...
