While we here at the listenerd have an unhealthy fascination with the now seemingly ubiquitous recommendation engines of digital media, it is our (and by that I mean my) practice to, on an irregular basis, offer the occasional anti-recommendation.
Today’s anti-recommendation has nothing to do with music or digital media of any type, and is in fact making me ill as I type these very words. It is BLACK MEAD, an ages-old alcoholic drink made with black currants. The particular brand of black mead in question comes from a small winery in northern Wisconsin, and tastes like a combination of metal, boogers and mushrooms (gnaw on that, Dara).
A little further context:
1) I love drinking, and will imbibe nearly anything that doesn’t taste like boogers.
2) Mead was invented nearly 3,000 years ago.
3) I have no financial stake in this anti-recommendation.
Again: AVOID BLACK MEAD. Under any circumstances. At all costs. Thank you.
