    have the Golden & Silver Ages really been forgotten? The horror. My current thinking is that only old SF is any good, which might make me an SF rockist. Or an SF rocket.

    I thought he was referring to the striped nature of the concoction as being like the stratified frozen gases. Anyway, I am really enjoying your series so far, hearing three of my favorite intraweb personalities discussing two of my favorite stories.

    Not to beat dead horse, but note similar vulgar mispronunciation of the Chardonnay known as Pouilly Fuisse and note also mention of aforementioned picturesque caffeinated alcoholic beverage in The Twelve Days Of Cajun Christmas
