Soup, Silver String & Saosin

Soup, Silver String & Saosin

Wine is a great side to almost any meal. There are plenty of connoisseurs out there who would be more specific to what-wine-goes-with-what-food… But I like to live dangerously. My formula for wine-purchasing is equivalent to a college girl’s wine-purchasing formula – Is it cheap & is it a big bottle? Done. Generally I prefer to stick with white wine however. I find red wine is a bit heavy, and the headache that follows the next day is brutal.

…unless you drink a whole 2L bottle to yourself. Then your (my) headache the next day is just as bad. I now have a massive craving for McDonald’s.

Last night’s supper was made from scratch once again by my girlfriend (her cooking skills make me look like a child) – Italian Wedding Soup. Such a classic, tasty, and incredibly filling meal. One bowl was enough for me! She referenced having to grate the onions (I’ve never done this before) and how badly it made her eyes water. Sometimes blood, sweat and tears literally are the extra ingredients in a meal.

Today’s song of choice is a newer release by a long-running band called Saosin. I was pretty excited to find out that they’d reconnected with their original vocalist (and Circa Survive frontman) Anthony Green. The band returned to the sound that I’d been missing the past couple years. Take a listen to The Silver String and air drum while doing office work. Booya.
