Poll: Drugs, Nasty Ass Drugs

posted by on July 16 at 12:09 PM

Music and drugs have a long and intertwining history. Certain artists have their poisons and certain poisons have their artists. Fans too, poisons don’t miss them either. (Managers, promoters, bookers, and label reps, let’s not forget they do drugs too.) We as music makers and fans snort, smoke, shoot, chug, and inject, for many reasons.

Enhancement of the senses to intensify creative process? Check. Enhancement of the senses to intensify audible and visual experience? Check. R. Kelly says, “I believe I can fly” and we do too. Or if you’re from the South, you want drugs because you like how it feels going fast.

Eddy Grant rocks down to Electric Avenue then does what? He takes it highya. Sadly, ginseng and guarana don’t stack up. I mean, there you are on Electric Avenue, somehow a cup of ginseng tea doesn’t work.

Drugs get ugly real quick. Some of the nastiest and dumbest:

The Speedball: intravenous use of heroin or morphine and cocaine.
Crank: cheap form of meth that is usually snorted.
Lith: lithium taken from batteries, comes in a paste, usually smoked.
LSD/Mushroom/Ecstasy combo: college students in Georgia call it “The Larry”.
Freon: the shit in refrigerators and air conditioners.
Yard of Beer: three feet of liquid beer.

Which gets you the highest?

You know, as opposed to the solid beer form that you might inject into your eyeball. Or not so much.

I guess I was thinking freon, and liquid freon, and I carried it over to the beer. Liquid beer, has a ring to it. For me.

a yard of beer made sense to me somehow. like a whalebone of beer you would get at a state fair tractor pull tent, right?

If I remember from my English days, it's a long glass with a ball shape at one end that you have to swivel as you drink it. Basically chugging about 4 pints in one go and trying to keep it down.

The Yard Beer says one thing - that you have dedicated yourself to partying. Cause you ain't drinking half of that thing and then saying 'no please I can't do the rest of this.' you are finishing it like the Tour de France. You have trained and you have come this far. You can't stop now.

My old roommate did that Larry LSD shroom combo. Then he went to see AC/DC.

AC/DC is great don't get me wrong but they just don't seem like the LSD type of band.

Then I remember that roommate coming home and cooking beenie weenies.

'unforgettable' doesn't seem like l.s.d. music either, but doing a duet with your dead father is exactly the kind of next level l.s.d. shit that natalie cole was on.

Did anyone see the South Park episode called "Major Boobage"? "Cheezing" will get you the highest.
