Coming Soon…


I think it might be August. There will once again be a number of booze reviews, three a week, mostly whisky. I do have a few more rums and brandies listed than usual so if you’re looking for a malternative month on My Annoying Opinions this is your opportunity to get at least half a month out of it. (As always, I invite your nominations from things to promote from the long list of potential reviews below to the shortlist). There will also continue to be a couple of food posts per week. My pandemic takeout reviews from the Twin Cities metro will continue (we’re not eating in anywhere till at least the end of the year, probably) and I’ll post a recipe most every week. I hope to also finally post my last report from our Calcutta trip and my last report from Delhi from the winter. And I may also have a fresh annoyance for the food media in the form of yet another piece on writing about Indian food. On the non booze and food front, I’m also planning to start a regular series of capsule reviews of Bombay films; and I’d like to revive my literary posts from the spring. Let’s see how these big plans go.

Meanwhile, the big change on the blog—as you may have noticed if you don’t have an ad blocker on—is that a few days ago I suddenly activated ads on the blog. This is an exploratory thing right now—they may or may not stick around. I’m not looking to make big money off the blog; but after seven and a half years I’m looking to see if it might be possible to make it pay for its hosting costs. If the ad money doesn’t seem likely to come close to that then I will ditch the ads (which currently appear in the left sidebar). If you find these horrendous to look at please let me know or activate your ad blocker (or if you don’t mind looking at an ad or two per visit to the blog, please deactivate your ad blocker).
