The government would need to change the rule on who owns infrastructure for broadband. In England, I think they have to share the infrastructure with other companies, therefore the barriers to become a broadband provider are much less. They have many more providers over there, which has driven pri...

Itunes still has some things not available on Spotify. Itunes also has a cloud service that is $20 a year to stream all of your music (up to a certain amount) from anywhere.
Itunes will probably still be around but it will need to adapt to not relying on album sales for $$$. ...

Now that I've had some time to digest this album, here are my thoughts:
It's probably in my top 4 of his catalogue with Shadows, Niandre, and Letur, but I'm not sure where I'd put it among those. I do like it a lot more than PBX. There's something that Enclosure has that PBX couldn't capture. T...

Yeah, location of crime trends is important. I.E. There may be 200 murders in a poor area and 10 in a less poor and more safe area in 1990. In 2014, if there are 150 murders in the poor area and 30 murders in the less poor / more safe area, then that is something to be concerned about....

I get what you are saying but I'm not even talking about the dipas and barrel aged stuff. I'm comparing one pale ale or wheat to another.
What you are saying is that Louisiana beer drinkers like dumb downed versions of brews. So LA brewers are inclined to brew those kinds of beers. I'm not sure...

To sum things up, the point of this thread was to understand why people like this brewery so much. I've had two of the three regular line-up and wasn't super impressed. I may have had a bad canebrake, because the one I had in a bottle last year was definitely better. Envie on the other hand, just...

True, but they weren't always as big as they are now. I doubt they got to where they are by having a bunch of "meh" beers in their regular line-up.
