Zion Curtain

In Utah, a partition that separates the patrons of a bar from the bartender and prevents drinks from being passed directly from the place where they are mixed to the customer.
The name comes from "Zion," a reference to the LDS (Mormon ) Church whose prohibitions against drinking alcohol heavily influenced Utah's liquor laws.

Because the bar that she tended at had a Zion Curtain, Sarah had to walk around to the other side to hand every customer their drink. It was a pain in the ass, but at least it was good exercise.

dark ambient

Dark ambient is like a marriage between ambient and industrial. Is naturally dark and much more interesting than regular ambient. Doesn't feature any cheesy synths, unless made by an ex black metal musician (that oftenly makes people bitch about whether the music is dark ambient or not; it usually is not). Usually doesn't feature any guitars. On those rare cases when it does (like in drone doom), it's definitely non-conventional use.
Much influenced by "musique concrete", dark ambient features recorded sounds, oftenly of non-musical nature.
Dark ambient can have various esthetics. Moaning and chanting, chain rattling (no, that's no ghost) raison d'etre-like stuff, radioactive droning of Fallout soundtrack, heavy pounding sounds of mechanisms, crazy shamanic drum-machine sounds, abrasive noise fragments - all these can make up different moods in dark ambient.
People who don't get dark ambient music, are found scrolling through the tracks in their desperate attempt of finding "where does at least SOME music start?"

There's also a tendency among some cultist freaks to puke up some really lousy synth pads and moans, put runes or pentagrams and some pseudo-religious texts on an album cover and call it "dark ambient", or "pagan/ritual/black dark ambient", or "neo-satanic nazi anti-nazi superficial industrial death dark ambient". Trust me, you don't wanna listen to that crap.

Don't get scared away by Deutsch Nepal's track names. That guy is a sick bastard, but he still makes some good dark ambient.

brass monkey

a 40 of Olde English 800 mixed with some OJ.

Typically one drinks the 40 down until the beer is level with the top of the cylinder of the bottle, then fill the bottle back up to the top with orange juice.

It is a very tasty treat.

Otherwise known as the "poor man's mimosa."

You wanna hit this Cognac man?

Nah... Poor Man's Mimosas until the day I die...

medieval diss track

my mill grinds, pepper and spice
You’re mill grinds, rats and mice
My hand picks, only what grows

Your hand picks, only your nose
My grain tastes, delightful
Your grain tastes, very frightful
My mother cooks, with much care,
Your mother cooks, with her hair
My wife smells, of pure honey
Your wife smells, of bad money
My fields are, happy to see
Your fields are, sad to decree
My hat fits, like a fiddle
Your hat fits, like it’s little
My king is, smart and wise
Your king is, full of lies
My sheep will, keep us alive
Your sheep will, fail to arrive

medieval diss track is fire
