whereabouts could you get some in britain?
but I had a night on absynth once and that was the most drunk I've ever been. There was this place selling shots of it really cheap so we had loads and it was so confusing, I've never been so drunk I couldn't recognise flat mates before or work the decks. It was a little like tripping on shrooms in a really really really mild form in that respect, I couldn't work the decks then either...
Isn't Everclear that Nu-Metal band with a lass singer?
but varies like 40% up to 80%, or something mad like that. also, theres wormwood in the original versions, so yeah, you'd be trippin balls man
apparently... but the everclear im on about is the 96.6% stuff
No wormwood though. It was really nice.
that seems a little bit over the top by a few %
no idea what kind of absynth it was I didnt ask it was pretty insane though and a bit of a blur.
alot of smoking may have happend at the same time too, between pubs. The absynth definatly kicked it off though... hazy times, I'd rather smoke a bit than try something at 96.6%, I mean that stuff will probibly just make you puke stright away and have no other real effect apart from feeling rank. AT least you feel like a nob head clieche when you've smoked a lot.
post grunge with a dude called Art Alexis as their singer. I like them, pretty guilty pleasureish though.
na na na nana na naaaaah
may not be the coolest answer to a 'who do you like' musical question but i think he is a great songwriter and some of his guitar playing is perfect (i know i sound a bit like a dad).
99 Proof so 49.5%. I tried to talk after taking the shot of it but I couldn't get words out as my throat felt on fire...was good though.
I have had 151 proof rum mixed in a drink though, but I don't think this counts towards what your asking?
We can then drive down to Kentucky (about 6 hours) and get everclear. OR if I end up in Louisville next year that is in Kentucky. Apparently the 190 proof is illegal in Michigan, but also many other places.
Yet another reason why Michigan bites a dick.
Michigan might not be that great of a state (have you ever been here) but it does offer:
-Close proximity to Canada for those under 21 who wish to drink (although other states boast this perk too but then you'd have to live ridiculously far north in them to take advantage of ie, Minnesota).
-The Detroit Red Wings
And I'd throw in Ford/GM/Chrysler but that's not so well, except in my book Ford wins since it kind of keeps my family and many friend's family going.
That's about all I can come up with...so yeah, you're probably right.
I've been a lifelong Pistons fan but never been able to invest myself in hockey. Must get out soon...
This is super-exciting. TWO PEOPLE from Michigan on the DiS boards. (I'm aiming to get out soon, hopefully after I graduate from State this May.)
road trip! :D
[may actually need to take exam tomorrow]
plz wait at michigan airport with a "dood" sign. we'll recognise each other anyway, ive just always wanted to arrive at ana airport and someone to have a sign waiting for me :D
good luck in your exam btw!
Will meet you there in approximately 8-10 hours. IDK. We might have to make an appearance in East Lansing at my house for tomorrow eve's festivities but then on the road we go.
And thanks very much. :)
UNLESS you listen to anything past their third album. Which is utter shit.
probably not enough rough edges etc. for those who were fans of the first two albums, but the song-writing is amazing — and this coming from someone who normally rolls his eyes at anyone who ever uses phrases like, "the song-writing is amazing".
And Santa Monica, Heroin Girl, and You Make Me Feel Like A Whore are all brilliant tracks too.
It's always been my favourite album of theirs. But yeah, everything they released since then can just do one.
just read this after my post way ^ there.
i'll go for loser makes good and fire maple song as my favourites, and i'll throw in pale green stars too.
available in all good weatherspoons(or it used to be)
it was horrendous. Must have been around 80%. Never again.
creaky will be good in here.
in the Jose Cuervo Tequila factory in Tequila, Mexico. It burnt.
i've got some at home at the moment. i love that stuff. i think i've had some pretty strong plum stuff, but i doubt it was above 55%.
do we have any chartreusse (sp?) drinkers here?
I also like some absinthe and woods overproof rum
100% proof vodka is nicer too yello chatreause weighs in at about 55% alcahol by volume.
I have had polish spirit 140% proof but have never had everclear.
In fact even given my enjoyment of overproof spirits I think i will not like to go much higher than 55% by volume, I doubt if i could enjoy drinking everclear, this sounds way to much burn.
To tell the truth i wasnt even that keen on polish spirit
i've had a 75% ish one before, i think that was the strongest.
The original mountain dew apparently. Quite nice despite sometimes containing both shit and bleach!
it contributed to me and my friend getting lost at one of the first house parties I went to at uni and wandering around town for hours before finally getting home. Good times.
that smelt like cat piss. It was like 65/70%. Would put hair even on a girls chest.
stroh 80 - it was exceedingly grim. it eventually evaporated in the bottle. thank god.
i also purchased loads of Old Tom (it's an ale, it's 8.5% and it's lovely)
one night at uni i was drinking old tom and absinthe as if they were normal lager, and vodka/whiskey respectively. thus the night was rather short, and i threw up on my bedroom floor.
it's about 95% and smells disgusting
I was 13 and I took a sip of this and my throat just burned. Burned a lot...
Was called spyritus lubelski. Proper cheap over there as well.
