The name Kallnach has become well known, he said, thanks to the success of a superpremium absinthe developed with Mr. Manson.

Well, there's certainly been worse articles in the Times about absinthe. FWIW at least Mansinthe isn't a bad absinthe. It's goofy and a somehwat thin tasting, but at least you can taste decent wormwood.

It began in 2005, after Switzerland, following the example of the United States and many countries in Europe, legalized the production of absinthe.


Ummm…I don't think so.

This makes me want to revisit some Swiss absinthes gathering dust.

Agreed, though it's despite MM's involvement of course, not because of it. I like every Matter absinthe I've had, perhaps not my favorite but variety is the spice of life. And I have another one of those little white ceramic jugs of asskicking goodness on the way!

IIRC, it's supposed to be William S. Burroughs. You're right though, it does resemble Oliver a bit.

I thought it was supposed to be a self portrait of MM in old age.

And so it is.

I could have sworn a long time ago I read about that painting being of Burroughs. The best I can find now is this:

QUOTE
I have a photo of William Burroughs hanging in my hallway that looks a bit like that. I looked at it one day and thought, 'If I could do all the things that he did and still look like that when I get old, I'd be real happy.' So when I was painting it, I was drinking absinthe, which I often do, and I dipped a brush in the wrong bowl, in my drink, and that's when I discovered what a great stain absinthe makes on the paper.

and better yet:

QUOTE
This is kind of William S. Burroughs-inspired, but it's kind of how I see myself when I'm old, if I get there.
