Why you should stop cold-brewing, and use the Japanese Iced Coffee Method.

petergiuliano:

"…When I went to Japan for the first time in 1994, I had iced coffee that was COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.  Bright and clear, it had a vibrant, refreshing quality that contrasted starkly with the leaden, low-end iced coffee I was used to in the U.S.  And best of all, the aromatics that I was used to smelling in hot coffee, I could taste in iced coffee… How was this possible?"

I highly recommend trying this method, it’s really simple: “…BREW HOT AND COOL INSTANTLY.”

This is a nice video guide from Counter Culture Coffee, located here in Durham:

What's In Your Virtual Wallet? Durham Bakery Accepts 'Bitcoin'

I love the quotes around “Bitcoin”

Reminds me of the "World Wide Web." 

Man, that was one of those weird things that would never catch on. That’s scary to be connected to so many people all at the same time- I’d always have people talking at me that I didn’t want to hear from!

20 years from now people won’t be so scared to go on “The Google” to do their own research, and discover that cryptocurrencies aren’t just something you use on “The Nintendo.” Bitcoin- and other decentralized systems for money transfer- make sense in a number of ways- in myriad practical and philosophical perspectives.

Though the media attention is a good start, thanks to “NPR” and Rise Bakery I now know that you can buy donuts with computer cash :)

He said:

Don’t make them wait
Gotta go a long way
Let’s be brave

Richard Herring, lead singer for Future Islands, said that “A Song For Our Grandfathers,” among other tracks on their new album, is "…very much about North Carolina, links to the past, and seeing into the past as you look into the future,”

There’s a Beach House [previous posts] feel to this one, particularly in the guitar tone that comes in during the chorus. This, coming from a Baltimore-based group (home of Beach House) but originally from Greenville, near the NC coast.

"SOAK’s gentle acoustic re-imagining of “The Mother We Share” strips the song of its towering, neon synth hooks leaving only the raw fragility of the lyrics, completely exposing their vulnerability"

Check out Past Life by Lost In The Trees

Just gorgeous, from their album of the same title. The choral pads, ride cymbal beat, guitar tone, synth pulsing everything all ahead steady
