The Devil's Back, Sicko

I'm not sure who's more deluded; the buyer or the seller. Everytime I sit naked reading random posts about faceless persons getting good deals from buying vintage wine or dresses, my pubes get twisted in knots. Then they curl up and fall off.

There is this ongoing debate about the definition of Vintage. Dont bother checking dicktionary.com or waikikipedia because its non conclusive as we speak. But it wouldnt be wrong to assume that (in the case of wine) vintage would mean exceptional quality and exceptionally high price because of limited production or stock. A 1958 Burgundy may be a very good year but a 1962 is vintage. Carpfish?

I remember the time I had the Macallan 25 year old. The nose was deep, rich and sweet. And beneath the oily characteristic, cocoa and a rich maltiness were discovered. The taste was lusciously silky with an initial sweetness of sherry giving way to a crescendo of cocoa (notes from the bottle,what do I know). The long and dry finish rested satisfyingly on my palate.

After finishing that bottle, we settled for the token Black Label. I couldnt tell the difference. Even the jokes were recycled albeit packaged differently.

Thats why I need my clothes back. This naked routine is getting old.

Kak Pah would be the right person to consult regarding all things 'vintage' :P

sic6sense said...

and who the fish is this authority on all things vintage?

clothes are the worst. a vintage dress would be a valentino haute couture circa 1973 (lets say) rather than your grandma's cabaret dress.

Leen Ash Burn said...

Damn...I gotta start throwing away all my tok mak's cabaret dresses that I was hoarding then.

yati said...

i'm a vintage *grin*
so old already what :-p

sic6sense said...

leen, lets compromise and call the dresses 'classic'. pakailah to karaoke since kabaret dah tutup. :D

yati, i guess you would qualify since you so old and so laku. haha.

anttyk said...

Wahlau, I don't have such a refined palate. I drink copious of cheap Chivas to get drunk. How it tastes doesn't really matter to me. ;)

I've always thought vintage wine is just sour grapes.

[V]landa said...

U STILL dunno who Kak Pah is? Tsk tsk..

I cannot be considered vintage yet issit? Not even to the 17 year old boys?

a babe of very little brain said...

oi! i like you naked.

sicko said...

anttyk, after half a dozen shots, taste doesnt matter. they all the look the same. :))

lily, on the contrary, sour grapes is when tak laku so jadi busuk dan tumbuh cendawan.

vlanda, you're young and nubile. :p

babe, the concept of my nakedness is superior to its reality.

pugly said...

I wonder if you read my postings nekkid ...

TTG said...

Ahha...I love vintage....they just slide down to the throat smoothly! Sigh...I am kosher already lah! ;P

sicko said...

dd, i hope its not a rarity though but it sure is sweet.

pugly, even better. i 'get' nekkid by the time i finish reading your postings.

ttg, you sure dont make vintage sound kosher!

Ardbeg 1977 said...

Does that mean I've been having vintage sic of "exceptional quality and exceptionally high price because of limited production or stock"?!?!

The age and rarity would meet the requirements of being vintage, the "exceptional quality".....hmmm...taste is subjective.....or should i say acquired in this case. As for the "exceptionally high price", one could say discerning is an atrribute of value.

Yep,definitely vintage. A collectible!!

reformed tart said...

liddat, i better go nekkid an air my vintage parts lah hoh?

yati said...

the reason you think i'm so laku is i don't show everything all the timelah... have to keep some mystery what; also have to hide fat. if you keep getting nekkid, people so use to it already... not laku then.

bunnywunny said...

Wah. Somebody veli graphic these days wor. What's with the angst, sicko?

sic6sense said...

ardbeg 1977, wow, thanks. i'll try maintaining the standard here with the occasional show of intelligence and good taste.

reformed tart, that wouldnt be wise. you might get vultures circling around.

yati, how would you know if you're laku if you dont take off your clothes? *puzzled*

bunnywunny, yeah i need a release. :p. cant be as graphic as you anyway!
