Modelo Especial Celebrates Craftsmanship With Collectible Glasses

Here at DAPS we’ve always been big fans of Modelo Especial’s particular brand of delicious Mexican beer. First off, if you haven’t tried it, you should. Go ahead, run off to your local deli and get some. Leave the tab open. We’ll be here when you come back. 

::waits for you to come back::

Hi, welcome back. I hope the deli you went to had some Modelo. If not, we hope you requested that they get it in. Either way, our “time on site" just got one hell of a boost. Anyway, we wanted to tell you about this new campaign from the awesome brand. 

As you can see in the video, Modelo is highlighting craftsmen around the world. In this age of digital thermometers and 3d printed glasses, it’s nice to know that someone out there is using their hands to create products that are also art.

Like who? Like woodworkers of course:

If you haven’t clicked play on either of the above videos, just know that ol’ Modelo is creating a set of collectible drinking glasses. The woodworking one features featuring classic guitar luthier, Matt Rubendall and woodworker and furniture maker, Greta de Parry.

Cool huh? Well, in the words of Forest Gump.. That’s all I have to say about that.

Check out all of the glasses on the brand’s official Facebook page.

I don’t consider myself an expert on comedy. I’m not a comedian. Most of the jokes I make are terribly unfunny and the very small fraction of them that aren’t terrible are just luck. I am more intimately acquainted with comedy than most, sure. I consume comedy with a critical eye and unconsciously make notes. I laugh only when extremely impressed by the delivery or crafting of a joke as opposed to laughing every time I find something funny. I don’t know much about comedy, which is why I study it so intently.

One thing I’ve learned about comedy is that it’s observation and translation. Ever heard the phrase “comedians are modern day philosophers”? A good comedian observes the world and can sift through his/her observations and find the ones that most people don’t notice, or don’t notice in the way the comedian has noticed it. A great comedian is more than their material. Standup material is a fraction of a single percent of what a great comedian observes. And it’s not something that you can turn on and off. The higher-than-normal critical thinking and observation are there before the comedian discovers comedy and they are there constantly. It doesn’t turn off. Ever. And when you see things most people don’t and in ways they don’t, two things happen: you understand the ugliest parts of the world on a deep level, and you find yourself disconnected from most of the world because most of the world doesn’t notice what you notice. This is what causes a comedian to go into comedy - to translate their observations and to find humor among the tragic. Many great comedians are deeply plagued by this. They turn to alcohol and drugs to dull and turn off their mind.

So it’s no surprise that Robin Williams struggled with alcoholism. He went to rehab for it. He did his best to find a happy middle ground between this comedic curse and enjoying life. Ultimately, he didn’t win. What’s more troubling, for me personally, than his death is how closely it hits home. I’m not a comedic genius by any length of the imagination, but I identify with the comedic struggle. I turned to comedy to twist the darkness of my reality and to find a way to relate to others. So when a great, bright, vibrant and inspiring person like Robin Williams takes their life, the one thought on many comedians minds is: If he couldn’t make it, how will I?

Robin Williams was one of, if not the happiest on-stage personality in modern comedy. He bounced around, did voices, and was animated in every sense of the word. The laughs he brought out of people were genuine and bright, a direct reflection of his comedic talent. To learn that he couldn’t find that happiness he gave to so many is terrifying. The sole reason I involve myself in comedy is to find joy in bringing joy to others. But, as Robin Williams is evidence of, someday it stops being enough. It doesn’t turn off the mind. The ugliness that a comedian translates into humor comes to them as ugly - that is what a comedian faces. Constant ugliness. They must work to turn it into something nice. Spending every day of your life working on that gets exhausting, but there’s always hope that you’ll make it to the end of your life naturally, having found your own joy and learned to control the darkness enough so your mind isn’t constantly seeing the worst before turning it into beauty.

I am deeply affected by Robin Williams’ death because it means that the struggle is much more real and serious than I like to believe. Despite the effort I put into finding goodness within myself and the world, there’s a huge chance that someday I’ll get tired of always working to see the good before the bad. Will the darkness become more intense the deeper I dive into comedy? Will I find a way to redirect my intense observations for everything and somehow see the bad things of the world like how most people see them (they don’t)? Will I find joy in myself and have somewhere where I don’t have to translate what I see? More importantly:

If Robin Williams couldn’t make it, will I?

Talia is brilliant and hilarious and you need to follow her immediately

Cancel whatever else non Robin Williams related you might be watching and watch his brilliant 1982 show ‘An Evening With Robin Williams’ in full

You probably do need the laugh. And if nothing else, Robin Williams would probably want you to be crying from laughter, not from sadness.

THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH THE BUCKET CHALLENGE, YOU GUYS

I feel the need to point that out because I see a lot of people complaining about it, and wrongfully so.

Basically, What you have is lots of people doing something fun with the added awareness of some cause. People are annoyed at it because it’s online. Charity concerts and televised telethons showcasing performances are basically the same things. Most people watch without making a donation. 

When it’s viral it’s on your feed and it’s yucky. How dare these people do something veiled in the idea that it’s for a good cause. Get it off our feeds! I was trying to not work! Nobody’s making money from this! It’s so stupid, you’re just trying to get attention. 

What’s that? People are talking about ALS? People are asking questions about it and learning? The donations are up 1000X from where they would be normally?!? It’s being run by a sufferer of the disease who’s incredibly proud of having his cause get free publicity on every morning news show in the country, on Facebook, in this post that you’re currently reading, on blogs? 

Yup, sounds awful to me. HOW DARE THESE MONSTERS! Rather than complain about people posting things on Facebook, maybe go donate yourself. Show the world how much of a better person you *actually* are than the people dumping ice water on their heads. Link to donate is in this post talking about how much money the awareness has raised. 

*After originally posting this on Facebook, someone pointed out to me that it’d be better for people posting the ice-bucket-dumping-videos with a link to the ALSA site, and I agree. It’d certainly help the cause and it’d be awesome for people to add the link. Though, it’s very hard to add that kind of instruction to a viral campaign and make it stick.

People are lazy, and I think the people launching these campaigns understand that. Nobody was talking about it last month, and this month they are, so I’m sure the ALSA people are thrilled and are grateful for those who donate and/or learn about the disease.
