Don’t Feed the Trolls Part Deux: Tales from the Snake-Pit

Vinted on August 25, 2008 binned in commentary

Remember earlier today, when I said it was “Non-Post Week” here at

Ok, so I lied.

Well, I didn’t intend to lie, it just, kind of… you know… happened.

I’m interrupting (already!) our previously scheduled ‘Non-Post’ week non-event to share with you a link to my buds over at Wine Biz Radio, who were kind enough to have me on today’s episode of their radio show / podcast, where I discuss my thoughts on the recent Wine Spectator chaos, as well as my recent experience “interacting” in their on-line forum (a.k.a, “the snake-pit“).

Check it out here: .

Ok. Back to not posting. I promise this time!





Non-Post Week!

Vinted on August 25, 2008 binned in Uncategorized

Welcome to “Non-Post Week” here at

This week, I will not be writing any posts (aside from this brief bit of introduction, anyway). Instead, I will be taking a mini-vacation from writing, and will offer up wine-related images that I’ve taken over the years.

This is not to showcase my photography skills – which are, at best, modest. It’s to offer a slightly different angle on wine blogging, and (hopefully) provide insight into what it’s like to be the Dude and how he looks at the strange and wonderful world of wine.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, well, then it’s worth an average blog post! Cheers – and see you next week!
