It's spring. Things are warming up. People are wearing less and less everywhere you go. And your mind is firmly in the gutter.
those leaves to clean, all that wet mulch and strange molds and maybe a
venomous millipede with a rifle. You don't want to go up there. You
certainly don't want to pay a stranger. And your kid's been at a
slumber party for a week. They always know, those kids.

doesn't have breasts, that was Heinlein's dream. Pick up a book,

D'doau was the first. He was in art school. D'doau was tired of the
same sound he heard every day. He picked up the cowbell as a joke and
soon he was opening for his friend Ian's band. That's how he met Ankle
one night. The two of them got in a fight with some herbivores and made
it home in one piece. The next day they had a little jam session.
knew a passenger pigeon, but that didn't work out, so they had to go
with Primi G. That first album got great reviews, but terrible sales.
It didn't last long after that.
D'doau wanted a solo career
as a vocalist and got a slot at a Vegas casino. Ankle started
experimenting with tape loops and moved into production. Primi G let
the fame go to his head and overdosed in a tar pit bathroom a year
after it all fell apart.
They still have a legacy, though.
Just last month a Manatee, a Chinese River Dolphin and an Iowa
Pleistocene Snail got together to try it themselves. You know what they
say. As long as someone remembers, you're never really gone.

Don't wear this shirt: if you're Iggy Pop. First, because you're immortal so it doesn't apply, and second, because you don't wear shirts.

Some wines merely taste good. Some transport you to another time,
another place. (And we're not talking about drinking so much that you
black out until the morning after.) A time before the world had ever
known a World War. A place where advertising posters and high art could
be one and the same. A world where a naked woman could fly down the
street with a bicycle, crazy Frenchmen painted on the beaches of
Tahiti, and lovers passed severed ears in the mail like valentines. And
they called it la Belle Epoque.
The scandalous label
on these bottles of Cycles Gladiator reproduces an 1895 poster
advertising that very model of modern conveyances, the bicycle. It's
not easy for us jaded 21st-century folk to understand the dizzying
feelings of freedom that this novel contraption aroused, especially in
crowded, class-bound Europe. Imagine if, suddenly, everybody could
afford their own helicopter. Or better yet, just try any or all of
these four Cycles Gladiator wines. Their uninhibited energy evokes the
thrilling time when the bicycle was joined by inventions like the
telephone, the phonograph, motion pictures, the airplane, and yes, even
Not that you'll taste any cellophane. Making their
world debut, the two bottles of Cycles Gladiator "More Reserved" (the
2006 Cab and the 2006 Merlot) were born in the dry, cool 2006 growing
season, and harvested late for darker colors and more developed
tannins. You won't find any reviews of these two yet. And anyway, who
cares about reviews? Any Belle Epqoue painter could tell you that real
genius is cruelly unappreciated in its own time.
Gladiator only harvests their Chardonnay at night, and the 2005 Central
Coast Chardonnay shows how successful this eccentric method is at
keeping bitterness at bay. Cool fermentation in new and neutral French
oak makes for brighter, richer, fruitier, Chardonnay-ier flavors. The
cool-climate aromatics of peach and pineapple! The ripe, fresh white
stone and tropical fruit flavors Bright acidity setting the fruit aloft
like a zeppelin! As golden as the sunrise over Le Havre, this
Chardonnay will leave you wondering whether to keep it in a wine cellar
or in a museum.
Simplicity can be deceptive. A seemingly crude
scene of a couple of South Pacific women lounging on a beach can hold a
world of meaning and subtlety. So it is with the Cycles Gladiator 2007
Central Coast Pinot Grigio. Sure, you can sip it while you do the
dishes, in classic Pinot Grigio style - or you can savor the symphony
of fruit and floral notes being played on your nose and tongue. Sweet
grapefruit, lemon zest, and honeydew notes are lifted by an avant-garde
splash of Orange Muscat, for a Pinot Grigio that refuses to be ordinary.
the world has moved on from the joyous, creative zenith of the Belle
Epoque. But one sip of this Cycles Gladiator Four-Pack will have you
wondering: who says you can't save time in a bottle?
