those hilarious midwesterners

I noticed on John Vanderslice’s tour schedule that he was playing at the “Kraftbrau Brewery” in Michigan. This is funny. It’s is obviously trying to be a clever reference to craft brews and German beer. It fails on a couple accounts. Kraft means “power,” “force” or “potency.” Brau means nothing, but braeu, usually spelled bräu means brew. (To their defense it does say Kraftbräu on their frontpage.) So Kraftbräu Brewery means something like Power Brew Brewery.

The funniest thing I ever heard of in terms of misusing words was a place my friend Colin saw in Wisconsin called das Gifthaus (he had a picture to prove it.) Gift means “poison” so this was a “poison house.” Not exactly what they meant, I would assume.

Sometimes it is made obvious that my daily trials and tribulations are trivial.

Some days the sunset is just about the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.
