What the fuck is that photo?! You should have hidden something that obscene behind a jump.
Ya it is old news and available in the UK, Canada and Europe.
Link anything to a drug and it is evil in the U.S.A. I guess.
Is that my blessed Megan Mullally? Why is she touching that man?!
This is how I feel about the Stranger's SONICS coverage.
For about the same buzz yo could have gotten from "real" absinthe, just have a shot of vodka or five then take a couple of tokes.
At least it's not another jenkems post.
"Havenít scientists established that thereís nothing special about wormwood, at least not in the trace amounts in commercial absinthe?"
No, they've established that wormwood contains alpha-thujone, which is the psychotropic drug found in absinthe. They've also established that alpha-thujone inhibits type-A GABA receptors and type-3 serotonin receptors. Historic recipes for absinthe as well as vintage bottles of absinthe have been tested for thujone concentrations and found to have lower levels than most of the currently available commercial absinthes -- excepting, of course, that ridiculous mouthwash-colored Hill's crap that is apparently issued to Seattle hipsters.
I'm with you 100% on this one, Brendan. Shut the fuck up and drink your fucking drink. Putting ice in a double-old-fashioned glass is ten thousand times more important a ritual than fucking around with piss and sugar cubes.
As if one needed another reason to eschew absinthe: Demi-portrait of The Stranger Staff @ Smith pondering a scoop about pit bulls, child molesters and Christopher's colon.
The newspapers are so ass-fuckingly backwards that they still think of goth as the realm of all things shocking. They think My Chemical Romance is goth. Hell, they probably think Disturbed is goth.
There are too many attention whores in the goth community. Methinks you have some moles among you, goths.
Yeah, you can tell My Chemical Romance isn't TRUE goth, because they're sort of, almost, you know, interesting.
MCR isn't goth. It's imitation emo, which isn't interesting at all. The only thing that sucks more than MCR are the fans who wish they were a part of MCR.
And for the record, singing about how much High School sucks, fuck authority, blablabla "they goin' clean up 'yo looks"--shut up. God. Nothing screams "loser" like High School pandering.
If my kid brought home one of their CD's, I'd beat the living shit out of them. Then I'd go buy them some McDonalds to make up for the abuse, and some PANTERA for good measure.
I agree. Who cares about absinthe?
Aquavit. Now that's a booze that'll curl your toes.
