Would You Take This Bottle of Jack Daniels From a Honey Bucket?

Slog tipper Aaron sends this photo and says he couldn't bring himself to touch, nor take, this opened-but-mostly-full-bottle of Jack Daniels from the floor of a Honey Bucket over the weekend... What would YOU have done?

Today's Music News: Festival Woes, Roth Goes Tarantino, and More

Posted by on Fri, May 24, 2013 at 11:50 AM

Festivus for the Rest of Us?: Abby Johnston at Salon ponders the lack of female-led bands at festivals this summer, while FACT worries that British music fests are becoming "unaffordable, corporate, and middle-aged."

David Lee Roth Wrote a Short Film: In which he plays a shirtless assassin who enjoys strawberry milk. Sample line: "In the name of the Moon, I shall right wrongs and defeat all evil." Makes sense.

Maybe She's a Tea Partier: R&B icon Mary J. Blige is facing some pretty serious IRS scrutiny, apparently owing about $3.4 million in back taxes. Between this and Lauryn Hill's recent troubles, it's starting to feel like some sort of conspiracy targeting our favorite ’90s hiphop divas.

American Stabbing: For your feel-good Friday story, a Pennsylvania couple are facing assault charges after they got incredibly drunk and stabbed one another following an argument about who should win the American Idol finale. First world problems, I guess.

The National's Matt Berninger Wonders How Hip You Can Be at 42: In a pretty funny, awkward interview with Stephen Colbert. And then the National played some great music.

Drunk of the Week: The Ron Jeremy Nipple Slip Edition

Posted by on Fri, May 3, 2013 at 2:45 PM

Were you one of the unfortunate people who missed Ron Jeremy at Linda's Tavern last Friday? I didn't really drink much of his spiced rum but HE was a total sweetheart—even though he didn't seem to smile very much. Lots of people gave up on autographed t-shirts, and just started getting autographed boobies.

Here are a few of the photos—including a classic (oops!) almost-nipple-slip by yours truly...

You Wanna Party With Porn Star Ron Jeremy This Weekend?

Posted by on Thu, Apr 25, 2013 at 2:20 PM

Ron Jeremy will be in Seattle appearing in two, count 'em TWO different locations to promote his new spiced rum called Ron de Jeremy. First, tomorrow April 26th, Linda's Tavern will host R.J. who will also play DJ, spinning his "favorite party jams," starting at 8 o'clock. Linda's also promises a footlong hot dog called the "Hedgehog Dog" and something else called a "Dark and Horny."

Then, on Saturday the 27th, Jeremy will launch his rum (did I just type that?) at Wine World, from 4-7 pm, selling and signing bottles of his new booze.

Both are free. Will you go?

A Poem for Reese

Posted by on Mon, Apr 22, 2013 at 2:04 PM

Forget what I just said about Amanda Palmer. Her poetry inspired me to write a poem of my own, for Reese Witherspoon, during her difficult time.

A Poem for Reese

you don't know how it felt to be in the womb but it must have been at least a little warmer than the heated seats in your car

you don't know how intimately they're recording your every move on closed-circuit cameras until you see your face reflected back at you through the mug shot (you look angelic, by the way)

you don't know how to stop picking your nose

you don't know how the cop doesn't know your name

you don't know how to stay in the car

you don't know how things could change so incredibly fast

you don't know how to "Walk the Line" in the field sobriety test

you don't know how to call a cab but the instructions are on the internet

you don't know the way back to the hotel

you don't know the way back to the hotel

you don't know the way back to the hotel

you don't know the way back to the hotel

How Hard Can it be to Throw a Bitchin' Club Tropicana Party?

Posted by on Fri, Mar 29, 2013 at 2:53 PM

My only goal for this summer is to somehow replicate this amazing looking party. Please let me know if anyone is in a Wham! cover band that can nail "Club Tropicana" while wearing board shorts and an open Hawaiian shirt. Do you think Q would be willing to rent out the space? I got five on it.

We'll also need tinsel palm trees, neon light shapes, a white baby grand piano, and really cool extras willing to act out all the song lyrics. Easy!

Is "Irish Car Bomb" a Terrible Name For a Drink?

Posted by on Fri, Mar 22, 2013 at 3:20 PM

More here, at Drunk of the Week. And this, from IrishCentral.Com:

An IRA victim’s group, Fair, has criticized the selling of the cocktail claiming the suffering of bomb attack victims, who have been maimed or killed, should not be celebrated in such a way.

"I would have expected Americans, of all people, to behave more sensitively and responsibly. How would they like it if we developed the Al-Qaeda car bomb, the Twin Towers cocktail, or the 9/11 ice-cream sundae?"

Rum, Ironic Hats, and Seattle Bands: an Austin Update

Posted by on Fri, Mar 15, 2013 at 1:29 PM

EDS NOTE: My intern Katie Martin is in Austin! Eating all the tacos I should be eating! Got any hot Texas tips for her? -Emily Nokes

You guys! I’m in Austin for SXSW right now! It’s 80 degrees and I am wearing a Hawaiian button up and I’m sure that you’re all shaking your fists at those cloudy heavens, cursing my name. My boyfriend and his “business partner” are managing a couple showcases down here for Castle Face Records, Dolce Vita shoes, and Sailor Jerry’s. I’ve never been to Texas (save the one time I went to Richland when I was thirteen and it sucked because everything sucks when you’re thirteen) and so far it just seems like Seattle in the summertime—everyone wearing attemptedly nonchalant yet obviously carefully-curated sleeveless band tees and messed up sneakers. The biggest difference is that they call Rainier “Lone Star” down here for some reason.

Seattle’s own Night Beats, the Pharmacy, and CMRTYZ the Band played the Sailor Jerry showcase last night at Gypsy Lounge and rocked the ironic mini baseball caps right off of everyone’s heads! It was refreshing to see some hometown vibes amongst so many strangers and reminded me just how spoiled we are in Seattle.

[Insert hella shitty phone pic of Pharmacy] [The phone pic was too hella shitty to insert. Just imagine it and you're better off. -ED]

In other news: it turns out that you can learn to like rum again when your wristband entitles you to as much of it as you want (no one is more surprised than me)! It also turns out that when you see someone you know in an unfamiliar city, you hug them without hesitation even if you would never hug them back home.

CMRTYZ/Castle Face showcase is today at Gypsy Lounge, featuring a gaggle of Seattle bands (PONY TIME! MTNS! STICKERS! PHARMACY! NIGHT BEATS!). Also: Thee Oh Sees! The Mallard! Blasted Canyons! Starts at 8pm. Free. Come and hang if you're in Austin and reading Line Out for some reason! King Tuff is playing the daytime show right before in the same location so it's a win, win, winwinwin!

High or Drunk: YOU DECIDE!

Posted by on Tue, Jan 22, 2013 at 12:45 PM

This comment, was posted to thestranger.com/drunkoftheweek on January 19th, 2013, at 1:46 pm.

Read it "Weenies" and then Rage Against The Machine:

Yo, my alcoholic brothers and sisters, your watering hole is about to shutter its doors soon, so drink up, you weed hating yuppies! Drown those sorrows of fucking up your code writing and passing it off as some new form of art grunge. Face it, you're a weenie if you need to face the day with a Martini (plus one for your pet monkey friend(s), and start smoking as much weed as humanly possible. Seattle needs more THC and less alcohol to keep our local government officials from killing this sleepy fishing village (remember: Free Ballard!), and turning it into some lame cousin to Boston, minus the blue-bloods and landed aristocracy.


Great article about the Zeitgeist of modern day Seattle...home of the Velvet Foam, expensive condos, and a culture of youth who consider anything with a ball played on a field or in a stadium, "art." Yes, that's you, you Martini mamby pambies. Rage against the machine, don't sit at your desk at Amazon and think you're a genius for figuring out a way to take out Barnes and Noble. Turn on, tune in and drop out. Uh, huh! I'm talkin' Timothy Leary here, a real intellectual who was a tenured Harvard professor who would never lower himself to a two Martini high. Go deeper, man! Don't aim for the floor (you inebriated fools) aim for the sky, as Seattle's own Jimi Hendrix implored. That takes an expanded mind, one that is educated, and appropriately filled with any manner of drugs that help you see, you can't make it out of this life alive. Swing for the fences. Roll a fat one, kick back, and turn up Soundgarden's "Outshined" (not "moonshined") to ten, and buck the lemming trend. Free your mind, and your sorry ass will follow.
