beer can with headphones attached

beer before liquor, never been sicker….

screen shot of Drinkify home page I have a new favorite thing ever.

Well, maybe not ever, because it’s competing with things like nachos and Chuck Taylors and The Usual Suspects and whatnot, but it’s still pretty cool.

As you might or might not know, I have this huge obsession with StumbleUpon. Seriously, if I don’t watch myself I’ll lose hours of my life to it. I’ve been feeling rather bored and uninspired and generally gross for the last couple days (I’m placing full blame on the weather. One of our favorite pastimes in Chicago is bitching about the weather, and we’ve reached that time of year when it’s starting to get COLD, and you pretty much know you’re going to be miserable and freezing for at least the next five months) so to try and brighten my surly mood a little I decided to play on StumbleUpon for a while and maybe discover a new artist or desert recipe or weird picture of outer space or mansion made entirely of Legos. Whatever, really. And Drinkify kept popping up. Then I’m checking out Glass and Sable today, and see another post about it. Too funny.

Basically, it’s the most brilliantly simple concept ever. What drink best goes with the music you’re listening to?

Just for fun, I’ll share my boozy suggestions with you using the most recently played artists from my ipod. Also, my go-to drink is rum and coke, which fails to appear anywhere on the list. It kinds of cracks me up.

According to this site Pabst Blue Ribbon should be sponsoring my ipod.  Apparently I should be drinking it right now. For breakfast. My boyfriend used to know a place where you could get a breakfast special of a PBR, tater tots and a corn-dog for $2.00 or something. Hmmm……

Also, I’d like to argue that if you’re listening to the Tossers you should be drinking Guinness.

That is all.
