Texas Spirit Distilleries Want More Direct Selling, Liquor Sales on Sundays

Texas is a weird state when it comes to the sale of liquor. Monday through Saturday, you can't buy it after 9 p.m. You can't buy it at all on Sunday. The day after a major holiday (Thanksgiving, Christmas, Memorial Day, etc.) you can't buy liquor, either. An entire county can be "dry" but yet an individual city in that "dry" county can vote to sell liquor (looking at you Smith county.) But go to any restaurant that serves liquor and you can order a drink up until their last call, even on a Sunday. Texas spirit distilleries are pushing for the Texas legislature to amend some of these laws to help increase their sales. Changes that would only benefit the Texas economy.

20 Years Ago: The Who Carries on Without John Entwistle

There's been no shortage of shocking and ill-timed rock 'n' roll deaths over the years. But by any standards, John Entwistle's death on June 27, 2002, ranks as a doozy. The Who was a day away from starting a North American tour when their 57-year-old bassist was found dead in his bed in Room 658 of the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Paradise, Nev., after spending the night with a local stripper. Entwistle had significant coronary health issues, and the Clark County medical examiner determined that he died from a heart attack induced after partying the night before.

There Is Now a 24-Hour ‘ALF’ TV Channel

Back in April, Amazon rebranded their free streaming service as “Amazon Freevee.” (Previously, the service was known as IMDb TV.) The slightly peculiar name indicates that, in addition to plenty of on demand movies and shows, Freevee offers numerous free “channels” of content. These channels operate sort of like old school cable channels, offering around the clock content on a set schedule.

How Classless Act Got Support Slot With Motley Crue and Def Leppard

Classless Act singer Derek Day said a case of “right place, right time” landed his band the Stadium Tour opening slot for Motley Crue, Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett. The rising-star band just released its debut album, Welcome to the Show, and even though it performs only a four-song set at each show, its audience is significantly larger than anything it’s played to before.

How Anvil’s Guitarist Settled His Differences With Lemmy

Anvil guitarist Steve “Lips” Kudlow discussed how he settled his differences with Lemmy Kilmister after refusing to join Motorhead in 1983. The Canadian was at work on Anvil’s third album, Forged in Fire, when the call came, after “Fast” Eddie Clarke left the British group. Kudlow has spoken in the past about his decision to remain loyal to his band. His rejection of the offer led Kilmister to establish a new version of Motorhead featuring Phil Campbell, who remained until the frontman died in 2016.

Multi-Million Dollar Mansion in Dallas, Texas Looks More Like an Office Building

There is something so fun about looking at real estate online. It’s fun to take ideas from other properties and possibly implement them in your own home, or just dream what it’s like to have that much money. I’m not sure if I will ever have millions of dollars to pay for a mansion but even if I did have that much money, I don’t think I would go after this property in Dallas, Texas that reminds me of an office building.
