Oh No! Stock Up on Refreshing Anheuser-Busch “Tilt” Energy Drink Now Cause It’ll Be Limited to Just 8% Alcohol Soon

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011

It’s happening again! Our corporate overlords at Anheuser-Busch have agreed to lower the alcohol content of Tilt from today’s 10-12% all the way down to a maximum of 8%.

First they came for the Sparks
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Sparkser. [Orange, yish.]

Then they came for the Booya Espresso Silver Tequila with Caffeine
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Booya Espresso Silver Tequila with Caffeine drinker.

And then they came for refreshing Tilt Premium flavored malt beverage RED BLUE AND GREEN
and there was no one left to speak out for me.

Oh well.

Farewell to the whole Tilt Family.

It was a good run…

How to Photograph San Francisco’s City Hall

First of all, wait for all the stuff to clear out. Like what? How about Darth Vader-ish sculptures or a Victory Garden with an extended lease?

Then, you just have to straighten out the flagpoles on both sides so that they’re parallel, if you want. This photo here at sfgov.org shows a little distortion if you look for it.

Here’s an attempt to portray parallel lines as parallel, the way they actually are in real life (more or less). This is the analog approach, which isn’t perfect.

Or, you can do it in Photoshop with or without a plug-in like PTLens. You can do a more perfect job, but sometimes you end up with an artificial look.

Or, backing away from the building helps a bit, as shown here.

Or, you can just not worry about it.

No biggee.
