It occurs to me that someone who sees worth in the phrase "never give away anything for nothing" should have been the last person to be offended that "There is no useful knowledge about the absinthe making process readily offered" (on Fee Verte).

As to "Fee Verte - A bunch of talk and Edward III - Action" - if one and two are true, then what would you call coming to Fee Verte to brag about Edward III?

I'm pretty sure this topic would be equally hilarious if I wasn't a plastered hick this afternoon, but I'll take it either way.

OK…so much for biting my tongue.

Yes, trust fund.

And maybe this isn't a venture by trust fund kiddies, but it still smacks of it - and you know why? Entitlement. Every single thing I have seen posted from you two has "ENTITLEMENT" written across it in 72pt block letters.

And not just here, either. What with how deeply in love with your own name and image you are, you are incredibly easy to Google.

Websites to track your own 'fame' and party society footprint?
$6000 hypo-allergenic cats?
Self-aggrandizing, out of the box, Flash animations of your own name?
A product named after yourself?
Quick jaunts to Rio?
Fashion models and cocaine?
A rented distillery to handle the actual art, while you two want to be 'reveared' as 'artisons'[sic]?
A claim of a $250k/yr income as an 'art school dropout'?
….while simultaneously claiming to be 'far from rich' and a humble small business owner?

All of this is not to mention the gross displays of entitlement, elitism, and defensiveness you and your partner have displayed both here and at WS. The whole "FeeVerte = talk" bit is especially amusing, given that I need both hands to count the number of individuals still *regularly* active here who paved the way for you and continue to contribute on both the national and international levels.



"ED HARDY New York Absinthe" is more like it, imo.

Which is a shame. It might actually be a drinkable product. Pity that I'll never know. Shallow profiteering by people who consider themselves your social betters tends to rankle.

And the sad thing is, your product will probably be a smashing success. Daddy's money will see to that.

I see the parting shot has been altered, final salvo Rev. 1, as it were:

"p.s. - to all naysayers, this special message still lives forever on the internets and in the words of Frank Zappa, "it's winking at you""

Never send a boy to do man's work. A picture is worth a thousand words:

Had to drag the dusty portable hard drive out of the closet for that one. Next is hard dick and doughnuts.

After reading the aforementioned list, somehow, I seriously doubt that.
