Finally got around to watching the Memorial Edition. It was way worse than I remember it being, and not even the welcomed added scenes did anything to salvage the bones of that project.

The retroactive elevation the 2016 series did for the Studio 4C stuff is pretty impressive, I guess, because I fully went in thinking I was going to enjoy my time watching it. I did not.

It just further punctuates my general disappointment for the series since Miura’s passing.

Yeah, the 2016 awfulness caused people to retroactively beautify the 2012 trilogy, but the truth is it was really quite bad. Typical case of an adaptation that doesn't respect the original work.
After dinner last night, I went out for drinks with my wife and some friends. I ordered an old fashioned with a bourbon I've never tried before (Whistle Pig). When it arrived, I took a sip. It tasted very... sugary. The bourbon didn't hit me at all. Initially, I thought: Maybe it's just THAT smooth! So in the name of science, I drank some more, and some more; each time trying to gauge whether or not there was bourbon. I drank the whole stupid thing and concluded at the very end: Yeah I think they forgot to add the bourbon. I told the waitress, and she looked into my glass and then at me, and said: You drank it though? THAT'S NOT THE POINT LADY! Meanwhile, my wife says her drink tastes TOO strong. I think they added my bourbon into her drink. So technically we still got our money's worth...? But I'm still upset, guys.

I've been meaning to try Whistle Pig. What's your whiskey of choice?

Did the waitress take off your drink?

Edit: Nice drink choice btw. A friend of mine is a bartender at a retirement home and that's the drink of choice for his patrons.

Nah, she gave me an insulted look and I wasn't willing to push for it. I screwed up by drinking the whole thing like a moron.

If I'm drinking it straight, my go-to bourbon is Buffalo Trace or Eagle Rare, but they've both been very hard to find for the past 5 years. If it's a cocktail, or I'm making it myself at home, I usually do Elijah Craig, because you can mask the slightly cheaper taste with your cocktail additions. Old Overholt Rye is also a very cheap but great alternative if you're just making old fashioneds.
