Nate’s Top 10 Albums of 2020 and the Beers To Pair With Them

January 4, 2021 |

Turns out, staff sometimes have hobbies outside of beer. Weird, huh? For me, that’s listening to newly released albums and painstakingly ranking those albums to assemble the Top 10 albums of 2020.

I’m hoping you’ll enjoy my top 10 albums of 2020 and the beers to pair with them.

Pop Culture Bracketology 2015

March 19, 2015 | 1

It’s a tale as old as time. Or, at least as old as March Madness bracketology.

You look over the bracket. You study up on the teams. You consider expert opinions. You even look up Vegas odds for every game. And finally you make smart, well-informed, clever picks for the NCAA tournament. And you enter your bracket into the office/school/family/friend pool.

And the winner of the pool? That one damn entrant who has never seen a basketball game, and picked teams based on which school has the best colors, or what names sound funniest, or even just whatever teams they’d heard of.

The beauty – and agony – of March Madness is that no one can predict what will happen. The race often goes not to the strong or the clever or the patient… but to the random. So here at PorchDrinking, we’ve come up with a very pop-culture way to pick your bracket.  Read More

The other day I was having a conversation with a friend about who “won” 2013. The obvious answer is almost always, without a doubt, *NSYNC, especially since they haven’t technically … Read More

How to be Conversant in ‘Lost’

November 15, 2012 |

As much as I try, even I can’t watch all the television there ever was. Personally, I despise the moments where I admit I haven’t seen a show and the person I’m talking to freaks out. “How can you claim a television obsession and have never seen [Insert title]?!?!”  I’m sure you have also had a moment like this  and I’m here to help. Here’s everything you need to know to have a conversation with someone about Lost.  [SPOILER ALERT]- I would think this is obvious, but I just wanted to cover my bases. Read More
