What up lawya? *Update* Teddie Stevens!

Monday, October 27th, 2008

Ready for some spontaneous human combustion? The excitement continues here at Big Handome now that Senator Ted Stevens (R-Alaska) is guily on seven charges (that’s all of them, for those keeping count at home) of corruption for taking gifts from folks including a home remodel and furniture from savory types like oil companies. Our first post in our ongoing but infrequent ‘What up, lawya?‘ series was about Uncle Ted getting indicted, and now we’ve seen this one through to completion.

Best of all? Senator Stevens has decided he’s not dropping out of the senate race in his home state of Alaska. While we often encourage and engage in such ballsy/unrealistic/foolish behavior (Handsomely, of course), this is an especially ludacrous (awesome?) move because it may jeaopordize the Republican’s chances of holding their senate seat in Alaska. Our observations and prognostications after jump: (Read on …)

Handsome Recommends: I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell

See 'Handsome Party' for Pictures as Such

It gets worse/funnier than this

Handsome Recommends: I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell by Tucker Max. Hell is a collection of stories about a collection of wild, debased, yet somehow relatable stories about one man’s quest to fulfill his only whims at the total expense of everything and everyone else. While we were never readers of the website that started it all, Hell tops our list of funny books.

We spend a great deal of time commuting to and from Handsome Headquarters and need something to keep us busy if we take transit, like furious Blackberry emailing or the aforementioned humorous books. I know what you’re thinking: what’s Handsome about a bunch of borderline porn stories told by a drunk, self-serving asshole? First and foremost, lighten up; Tucker’s stories are completely hilarious and perfect for plane/bus/train rides. Second, we’ve all had our un-handsome moments like: (Read on …)

Handsome Field Trip: Picking Pinot

Clone 777 Pinot Noir Grapes, ready for the bucket

Clone 777 pinot noir, ready for the bucket

Last weekend we went to the Santa Ynez valley in Santa Barbara wine country to pick some of the best pinot noir grapes in the region. Was this part of some wine country tour or easy-street wine tasting? Nope – we were at Clos Pepe Vineyards volunteering for the annual harvest of chardonnay and pinot noir wine grapes. Volunteering for manual labor may sound like a ridiculous thing to do, but on the contrary it’s really quite handsome.

We’re hardly oenephiles, but being slightly knowledgeable about wine has many practical applications, including but not limited to:

  • impressing dates
  • making wine store trips less intimidating
  • adding to our formidable arsenal of smug party conversation topics
