Thelonious Monk – Evidence
Thelonious Monk – Epistrophy
...on Youtube. I think this was a magnificent start. Already a fan of Monk, and I’ve basically had no knowledge of Jazz musicians up ‘til this point!
I’ve heard some incredible stuff about their live show (and this is from a friend who has seen hundreds of bands). The energy level is absolutely insane and the lead singer supposedly never even looks winded. I think they’re actually one of the top bands I would want to see in concert out of any band that’s been around during my lifetime, and that’s saying a lot coming from me. ONE of..
Obviously I need to get on that while they’re still together…see if they live up to the hype.
Some things I’d recommend:
Make sure it has a very large opening for ease of cleaning. This doesn’t have to be the drinking opening, as drinking from HUGE openings isn’t fun, especially if you’re trying to drink while active.
Make sure the body-type facilitates easy cleaning—i.e., if there’s a fluid-bearing handle (such as is found on the common milk gallon) you’ll have a hard time cleaning in there.
Make sure it has a solid seal and is absolutely leak-proof (I have been surprised at how many times a good seal has been an issue).
Make sure if the lid has threads that the threads aren’t plastic and that they aren’t easy to cross-thread.
I’d also recommend that it be no less than 32 oz. Any less than that just isn’t enough if you really intend to consistently drink how much your body needs you to be drinking.
