Cat Out Of Nowhere of the Day: Redditor mister_asdf, who says he just moved into a new apartment, walked into one of the rooms and saw this.
He explains: “One of our cats found a way through the chimney duct which we wallpaper’ed over.” 
When I get an apartment, I want it to come with a cat. Good gimmick, am I right?
I liked it better when I didn’t know the backstory and pretended the house came with a complimentary Wall Cat.

Sitting on the swing with tears in her eyes, she wondered what she detested more: that glossy metal tube they called their new ‘home’ or her parents’ persistent refusal to take her to a NORMAL playground – with NORMAL people.

When @garyvee raves about a wine it raises a lot of eyebrows. The 2007 Il Fiume di Lava was a relative unknown thrust into the spotlight with an episode of the Daily Grape. The story goes that Franchetti, an Italian wine producer that has his triple-digit wines routinely score into the stratosphere from the Wine Advocate, didn’t quite think his 2007 production was up to snuff.
End result? You’re essentially getting what normally retails for over $100 at around $40. That’s all well and good, but what’s it taste like?
 2007 Il Fiume di Lava Etna Il Fiume Di Lava - Italy, Sicily, Etna DOC (5/15/2011) Rich dark fruit with an almost an incense-like note, red licorice, a hint of leather. So much stuff going on with the nose. Wow on the palate. Big black fruit with off-the-charts concentration, but this has so much minerality, acid, tannin. Beautiful notes of leather grip your palate and lasts for what seems like forever on the finish. This is really a beautiful wine and I’m in complete agreement with Gary V on this. A steal at $35 if there ever was one. (95 points)

Fantastic wine that really brings old-world sensibility to new-world fruit and concentration. Bravo. Hat tip to @troutmonster for encouraging me to give it a shot.

Yesterday, October 24th, I was able to see my third Muse concert, this time in Newark, NJ. This is their tour for the album, “The Resistance”. They started around 9PM and muscled their way through until 10:50PM, putting on a spectacular concert.

After seeing several concerts, it’s understandable why Brian May from Queen said they were “probably the greatest live act in the world today.”
