Drink, Drank, Drunk, Dead

Sometimes, just when I think that things can’t get any weirder (and that doesn’t happen too often), I get that reality slap to the face which tells me that it’s just getting started. I show you now “Drank”, the worlds first (to my knowledge) anti-energy drink. It’s grape soda with valerian root and melatonin, and according to the Wikipedia is based on an urban cocktail which involves mixing codeine-and-promethazine-based cough syrup with Sprite and Jolly Ranchers. Popularized by some idiot named “Dj Screw”, who wound up dying from it, the concotion spread around the hip-hop scene in the southern US, taking several more lives in the process. Now it’s being marketed, hoorah! I can’t tell if this is just a culturally ignorant money-making venture, or a sly and calculated attempt to make certain sectors of society even more fucked up, but it certainly feels like a bad, bad idea all around.

Hot Damn! Dolemite is BACK!

Now who would’ve thought this would happen? At the ripe old age of 71, Rudy Ray Moore is brining his biggest, baddest, blackest creation back to the screen! Dolemite is the man, didn’t you know? This trailer contains approximately 78 flavours of kick-ass, and I love each and every one, and so should you, sucker. Vive La Pimp!
