I’ve made it a point of personal honor not to engage in arguments over lists, a lesson learned in high school when the radio stations would play their obligatory end-of-year “100 Greatest Rock and Roll Songs of All Time” segments.
And you’d sit around with a bunch of people in your friend’s basement having a meltdown that Stairway to Heaven placed ahead of Satisfaction.
The capper was when stations, looking to reintroduce some buzz into a growingly tired feature, would pick something like Rubberband Man by the Spinners as the No. 1 Rock and Roll Song of All Time, spurring a renewed burst of moral outrage that even weed couldn’t suppress. The Internet has made things far worse, as morons in search of clicks have ranked stuff like the Top 10 Grasshoppers and the 10 Best Places For Retirees to Buy Housing Shingles. » Continue Reading.

West Mountain, a small ski and snowboarding operation just outside the Blue Line in Queensbury, NY, has announced the recent purchase of a triple chairlift from the Hermitage Club in West Dover, Vermont. The investment marks another turn in the fortunes of popular downhill resort, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2013.
The newly acquired triple chairlift is over twice the length needed to replace the almost 60-year-old Summit Double Chairlift located at West Mountain’s base area. Spencer Montgomery, West Mountain’s co-owner and General Manager, has secured a second drive terminal and bull wheel, with intentions of replacing the Northwest Triple Chair as well. “There is a 50% chance that both lifts will be replaced this year,” Montgomery told the Glens Falls Post Star. » Continue Reading.

How often when dining, do you get to see the chefs in action? For some of these future chefs their experience at the culinary center is their first on a hot line. The prep area was a busy scene when I arrived, as students were focused on finishing their mise en place (“putting in place”, or setting up) in preparation for lunch.
