Friday Random 10: Honest Pint Edition

Pax Arcana

Last year we wrote about the growing scourge of “falsies,” which are basically 14 ounce beer glasses made to look like pints so bars can charge you for a full beer without giving you one. Obviously this is abhorrent behavior and the most deceptive use of glass since my college roommates tricked me into crashing through a sliding door by dressing up like robots and chasing me around the living room.

The beer hotties agree — a full mug is a thing of beauty

Lawmakers in Oregon agreed with our hardline stance, recently passing House Bill 3122 — also known as the “Honest Pint Act.” The law would reward bars that serve full 16 ounce pints with stickers that prove they serve an honest pint.

I don’t know what they do with the stickers. Probably put them on their skateboards like I do.

The songs:

Was it You? — Spoon
Kick Out the Jams — Bad Brains with Henry Rollins
Last Call — Outkast
Strange Times — The Black Keys
Blank Slate — The National
The Avalanche — Sufjan Stevens
Helpless — Sugar
Ndiawoulou — Orchestra Baobob
Street Spirit (Fade Out) — Radiohead
My Little Japanese Cigarette Case — Spoon

Bonus Video:

Auto-tune the news #3 — Because this one is an epic masterpiece of boundless ambition… on thin ice

The Rules: The Friday Random 10 is exactly that — random. We open up our iTunes, set the thing on shuffle, and listen to 10 songs. We are not permitted to skip any out of embarrassment or fear of redundancy. Commenters are encouraged to post their own.
