Tue, 12/16/2014 - 10:17pm

Tue, 12/16/2014 - 9:56pm

blackfish lives in a world of its own

Wed, 12/10/2014 - 1:33am
Imagine a shallow lake north of Hughes, in the cold heart of Alaska. In frigid, sluggish water, dim blue light penetrates two feet of ice.

Dreaming of a sour Christmas

Wed, 12/10/2014 - 1:33am
When it comes to Christmas, I'm your quintessential bah-humbug kind of guy. Like many other people, I think the whole thing's become way too commercialized. I'm a horrible shopper anyway. Every year, I wait until the last minute and struggle to find something appropriate for my family, friends and relatives. Besides, the busy Christmas season chokes the roads and parking lots, making my forays for good beer more of a challenge. In fact, I've been called a sourpuss.

Wed, 12/10/2014 - 1:33am
Ahhh, Black Friday. That anticipated day when shoppers wake up before the sun, don their winter coats over their PJs, and haul themselves down to the nearest electronic, big box, or department store for the wee-hour deals.
