...I'm drinking absinthe martini's right now.

In short: The Don and Mike sydicated radio show was scheduled to have it's semi-regular "absinthe show" today. I was primed to listen to it as I killed the last of my bottle of Czech absinthe...good times all around, yeah?





But nooooooooo.....

....it's not to be.

My local radio asshole station that carries D&M has chosen instead to carry coverage of the shit-licking March Madness basketball coverage instead of Don & Mike...So! I cannot hear the absinthe show due to this professional gambler's dream.


F*ck college basketball.

F*ck 1010 The Buzz.

And f*ck me....one and a half absinthe martini's and I'm spinning out of my mind....Jesus, this has been the most difficult post I've ever made

I need to turn the AC up...

The lights turned on
and the curtain fell down,
And when it was over
it felt like a dream,
They stood at the stage door
and begged for a scream,
The agents had paid
for the black limousine
That waited outside in the rain.

Did you see them,
did you see them?
Did you see them in the river?
They were there to wave to you.
Could you tell that
the empty quivered,
Brown skinned Indian on the banks
That were crowded and narrow,
Held a broken arrow?

Eighteen years of American dream,
He saw that his brother
had sworn on the wall.
He hung up his eyelids
and ran down the hall,
His mother had told him
a trip was a fall,
And don't mention babies at all.

Did you see him, did you see him?
Did you see him in the river?
He were there to wave to you.
Could you tell that
the empty quivered,
Brown skinned Indian on the banks
That were crowded and narrow,
Held a broken arrow?

The streets were lined
for the wedding parade,
The Queen wore the white gloves,
the county of song,
The black covered caisson
her horses had drawn
Protected her King
from the sun rays of dawn.
They married for peace
and were gone.

Did you see them,

Did you see them in the river?
They were there to wave to you.

Brown skinned Indian on the banks

My friends order online and have it shipped to their house... There is a loophole in the law about it, you cannot buy it here, but you can buy in in other countries and have it brought in... or so i am told..All i know is there are about six bottles above the fireplace..

Oh boy...

Just woke up 20 minutes ago. Passed out around 6pm after three absinthe-tinis. Only absinthe can do that to me. Anyways, I finished off the rotgut Czech absinthe--next time, I'm gonna order the REALLY powerful stuff that contains the max amount of thujone.

Yeah, it's illegal to sell absinthe in the USA. It's not illegal to possess and it's a kind of grey area about importing it. I emailed the ATF about this and the reply I got stated that, basically, they don't go after people for ordering small amounts of absinthe for personal use. It's probably not a good idea to try to bring in 55-gallon drums of the stuff, though...

absinthe makes the heart grow fonder...

"I understand absinthe makes the tart grow fonder. It is extremely detrimental to the complexion ... I never presented a more debauched appearance than I do this morning."

--Ernest Dowson, 1897

Dowson also wrote this poem:

Green changed to white, emerald to
opal: nothing was changed.

The man let the water trickle gently
into his glass, and as the green clouded,
a mist fell from his mind.

Then he drank opaline.

Memories and terrors beset him. The
past tore after him like a panther and
through the blackness of the present he
saw the luminous tiger eyes of the things
to be.

But he drank opaline.

And that obscure night of the soul,
and the valley of humiliation, through
which he stumbled, were forgotten. He
saw blue vistas of undiscovered countries,
high prospects and a quiet, caressing
sea. The past shed its perfume over
him to-day held his hand as if it were a
little child, and to-morrow shone like a
white star: nothing was changed.

He drank opaline.

The man had known the obscure
night of the soul, and lay even now in
the valley of humiliation; and the tiger
menace of the things to be was red in
the skies. But for a little while he had
forgotten.

Green changed to white, emerald to
opal: nothing was changed.

I read the 1st paragraph of his bio and this sentence made me laugh out loud!

"He died of alcoholism in 1900 at the early age of 33."

Cannibal

Of course this doesn't put him in real good light either. But his poem still makes me want some absinthe.

"In 1891 he met Adelaide Foltinowicz, a restaurateur's daughter, then aged 12 and she became a symbol of love and innocence in some of his verse. He courted her for 2 years but when she came of age she married a waiter who worked in her father's restaurant!"

I have to ask you what is the appeal of that show? It comes on midnight here in Dallas and I've tried listening to it on my way home from work and I just do not get it. Don and Mike seem to prattle on and on about their personal lives and are just not funny and entertaining to me. Is the show some kind of acquired taste? I'm usually exhausted coming home from work and these guys increase my chance at falling asleep at the wheel.

Yes, it is awful. One of them has a wife who is always calling in and blahblahing about what they had for dinner last night. It's almost as bad as Imus.
