🍷 Tasting without labels
Hello there! This week our eyes are closed, noses and palates are open! We are digging into what blind tasting is and how it is done. When you see a bottle of wine on the shelf, or when a bottle appears in the selection at a tasting, you start to interpret it - without even tasting it! It's like the first look, the first impression. Blind tasting is different; it is a tasting that is unaffected, unlabeled. This week we are tasting unaffected, unlabeled! But every bottle we open may not be faultless. Just as there are no perfect people, there are no perfect wines. In this issue, we will understand what corked wine is and why they send the wine back saying "This wine is corked!" Our glass is very full this week; if you're ready, let's start with the tunes from our Grapest Hits list below that are not corked. Attention! This publication refers to wine and fermented grape juice from alcoholic beverages. For readers under 18, non-fermented grape juice may be more suitable. Cheers🍷 Selin

🎃 Halloween watchlist: Cabinet of Curiosities by Guillermo Del Toro, Selin Geçit
Halloween isn't over yet! We're going to release an issue on Pumpkin Spice Latte nex year, until then, before we watch Halloweentown , we'll find out more on Cool 's singer Selin Geçit. Below is a brief summary of what to expect in this issue, but of course, the new episode of What Made This So Popular Tho? is also on air. Boo, then! 📻 What Made This So Popular Tho?: It's in Turkish but Fanon 's podcast series continues with its fifth episode! Today's episode is about Influencer Marketing. If you came across influencer collaborations and scrolled up the story and bought the recommended product, this one's for you. 🦸♀️ Stan: Today's Stan is the Cool singer Selin Geçit . Below is the interview, which can be regarded as a love letter to her songs, the fictional universes she got inspired for her music videos, Wes Anderson, and musicals. During my youth, Disney Channel was at its best—I think—with shows like High School Musical , Camp Rock , and Hannah Montana . All of those shows revolved around a fun, colorful, “spontaneously breaking into song” kind of universes. Of course, in real life, that doesn’t really exist. We’d need a couple hours of rehearsals to create that! However, as a child, I loved the idea of suddenly breaking into a song and I always wishes that my life could be like that. Selin Geçit, Hannah Montana and The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993) The lineup: 🦸♀️ Stan #15: Selin Geçit 🎃 #FanOFF: Guillermo Del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities 🍂 What’s up for next week: Rom-com season xoxo, Alara

🔹 Stop by the Spice Bazaar: Pandeli
Where does history live? In the curricula of school books, on library shelves divided into neat sections, on the front page of Nokta magazine hidden among dusty layers in bookshops, on the pages of Ana Britannica collected fascicle by fascicle, on the pages of Meydan Larousse Büyük Lugat, in the recordings of 32. Gün that you come across on YouTube, or in the lines of fairy tales, fables, voices recorded on cassettes, dictaphones? Does the story of a day, of a life, go down in history when written down, or does it pass down from generation to generation, from person to person, through words and sounds? Is it writing or telling that keeps history alive? Is it definite and unchangeable? Can it be bent, twisted, and shaped by reminiscences? Can a history take itself wherever it goes? Is it supposed to remain constant? Can it be broken down into its personal and social components? Is it part of the whole that is brought together by invisible threads? Is one obliged to remember history or forget it, to evolve into the future? When we consider that the period that is part of the past while we are still alive is one of the layers of history, maybe we can say that the present, which is the first stage of the future, cannot exist without the past. History lives in the totality of words written on the painted wall, in the notes on the back of photographs pasted in albums, in letters without envelopes, in VHS tapes, sometimes in the smell of dampness, sometimes in the smell of lentil soup mixed with soap, in the first three notes of a song, in the voice you hear in your mind but cannot pronounce, in the discussions that intermingle as you switch from channel to channel on television. Pandeli Today, we are in the place known in the history as the place at the end of the stairs from the Spice Bazaar for some, as the restaurant with a Michelin Star for others, as the warmth of the oven for some others, and as the corner where Mr Pandeli pulls out his chair for many more. In Rüstem Paşa, on a journey of the history of Istanbul. Follow us, Hazal
