Here are a few absinthe flavored goodies. They are kind of campy, but fun. From the top – mints, gumballs, cigarette rolling papers, lip balm and dental floss.

In 2001 Playboy magazine sold an exclusive set of limited edition Zippo absinthe lighters. I managed to aquire a set a few years back and here they are. The picture is somewhat blurry, but you can still see how cool they are. A Czech absinthe company is now selling copies of the one on the right, but these are originals.


Music To Drink Absinthe To

Last weekend my good friend, iconic artist and absintheur, Dave Sklar dropped by to join me for the Green Hour. He brought his nephew Ben, also an absintheur, here on vacation, along. Talking to Ben I came to find out he’s a vocalist and musician in a group with the interestingly unique, if somewhat hard to remember, name of  Aruvius Thud. I asked him what type of music they played and he stated that it was kind of classical/folk. Well,  last night I sat down with a very fine absinthe and gave them a listen. I must say that I was very impressed. Yes, there are elements of classical and folk music, but these guys have created a style and sound that is unique to themselves. I would describe their music as serenely beautiful, interestingly atmospheric, and at times a bit hauntingly melancholy. I can honestly say that I’ve never enjoyed three songs that I’ve never heard before as much as these. This is the  perfect music to enjoy while imbibing the Green Fairy. The Seattle Washington based trio is comprised of Ben Sklarfowler (harp, guitar, bozouki, vocals), Jeff Brown (guitar, vocals), and Ryan Bak (bass, vocals, brown notes). The next time you’re having an absinthe and want to hear some great, original music go to:

 

 and give the three songs there a listen. Dim the lights, light a few candles, mix yourself an absinthe, and enjoy the ethereal sounds of Aruvius Thud.  I am confident you’ll love what you hear. And if you do, please go to their Facebook page and let them know. I’m sure they’d appreciate it. They will be releasing a CD in the future and I will post an update as to where and when you can get it. Cheers all :)
