Welcome to Can’t Be Beat

Welcome.  If you are here, you must have expressed an interest in The Kinks, Alexandre Dumas, Guinness or George Harrison.

As you must know, The Kinks, Alexandre Dumas, Guinness and George Harrison CAN’T BE BEAT.  As cable ‘documentaries’ about ancient aliens and secret societies are wont to proclaim,  “some believe [such-and-such dubious claim]”, “some believe” that so-and-so is the best band, the best writer, the best beer and the best guitarist.  Of course this is simply not so and just a matter of opinion. But, you may say, are not blogs meant to contain opinions, and many of them, and perhaps even some baseless speculation and celebrity gossip as well?

Indeed.

Here, however, I will try to contain the main overriding opinion that while certain people, places, things and rock bands may not be “the best” – they most definitely, indisputably cannot be beat.

For example, as the tag line indicates:

The Kinks – Especially the 65-68 period.  Can’t Be Beat.

Alexandre Dumas – The Count of Monte Cristo alone qualifies him but the guy wrote literally dozens more outstanding historical romances.alexandre_dumas_1

Guinness – A proper pull can’t be beat.

George Harrison – In addition to being unbeatable as a Beatles guitarist, he is also surely the best-dressed of the Beatles, no doubt.  This is on authority of Liam Gallagher no less (he particularly calls out his “Rubber Soul”/”Revolver” period style).

There you go; the concept may be applied to virtually everything in life and I encourage you to try it.

Rest assured we have only begun on the topics of Kinks, Dumas, and George but will be covering many others at length and superficially as called for.

Looking forward to your highly valued opinions on further subjects.

PS If you came here looking for “Press Any Key” – the majority of those posts have been moved to the interFUEL blog.

  3. I have been browsing online greater than 3 hours lately, yet I never discovered any interesting article like yours.
    It’s lovely value enough for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you did, the internet shall be a lot more useful than ever before.

  4. Don’t tear your hair out with be concerned. “There is no medical evidence that tension results in hair loss,” claims Sherlock. On the other hand, a 2004 examine on stressed-out mice documented within the Journal of Investigative Dermatology suggested a probable link in humans amongst accelerated baldness and emotional stress or traumas similar to surgery, poisoning or becoming forced to join the rat race..
