oh the russians...

jax, can i just say that i think you are the most weird fucked up individual and for that i love you so much...

i totally know what you are talking about as far as live music goes... i went to a concert in denver on friday... it pretty much kicked some serious ass... we went for less than jake but it was like a 4 hour mosh pit and the only escape was -14 degree weather outside...so we didn't... but snaps on the theory on live music...

agreed with the born again thing too...ya know i'd like to think i learn from my mistakes but sometimes...sometimes...

so i'm having a lot of conversations lately about how i feel about alcohol...and people are beginning to piss me off...

so in colorado right now its a really big debate: weed vs. alcohol...what with all the pending legislative actions going on...so i was in denver last night at a party with my room mate, hannah, and her friend, mike...and hannah is friends with a lot of russian immigrants...18-20 yr old...thick russian accents...cool names like vladamir, nison, and sergei...just huge freakin (might i add attractive) guys...and by the by what these kids like to do is drink vodka...life revolves around vodka...and the purpose of this party just so happened to be drinking vodka, toasting, to this guy named steve who, next week, would be shipped out to iraq...a noble cause if you ask me...now hannah, mike and i were all staying at the house cause it was ludacris to drive (2 hours) back to the fort that night...so not needing a dd we all decided to drink...personally i see nothing wrong with, despite the law, taking a shot of vodka with a guy named nison and drinking a beer... hannah slammed like 8 shots...mike did 4 or so...after a few hours of partying, dancing, smoking (no i still don't smoke), carrying on with 200lb bulgarian guys with nipple rings named terry that really wanna dance with you (that just makes for a funny college story)...so needless to say due to the blasting of "shake your bon bon" (you should hear it sung-slurred- with a russian accent in order to fully appreciate it) and a girl trampling the neighbor's flowers the party got busted, the cops were called...we were driven around by people from around denver that we know randomly from school and whathaveyou until i was sober enough (i failed the f-ing sobreity test...ya know the one where the cop waves his finger in front of your face..."ya wanna try again or do you want to just be a dear and start dumping all the alcohol out?"...on a side note hannah passed the stupid test...it must be her quick asian reaction time) to drive us back to the fort (we arrived home at about 5am)...

so when we got back we were confronted with multiple people questioning our morals and standards due to the incident...many people were "disappointed" in us...hannah even broke up with her bf over the incident (long story short: he's straightedged and continually sets ultimatums for her "standards" like drinking and smoking and broke up with her over myspace...but hes a dick so i think its for the best...she doesn't see that so much right now)...

lately theres been so many people trying to convince me that pot is not as bad as alcohol and alcohol is this horrible horrible thing...and i gotta say that personally, under the right circumstances and in a safe environment i see nothing wrong with drinking...or pot for that matter...especially if it is not to get drunk...which...that was no one's goal last night (hannah just achieved it)...and it was just great to come home tired and smelly after such a crazy weekend only to have a million and two people berrate you about your morals with "how could you do such a thing" attitudes when they are just as guilty as anyone...as if my weekend could even get worse than seeing a grown russian man with a thick accent come up to me with tears streaming down his face because the cops had asked him to pour out the liquor mumbling "I'm Russian! I can't pour out Vodka!"...yea right...they are going to have to be a bit more creative if they wanna top that...

in conclusion: yea for live music. russians kick ass. drinking can be okay. city of thornton cops suck.

{editor's note: upon furthur investigation, hannah passed the sobreity test because she was in fact, asian...her eyes are too squinty to see so the cops couldn't tell if she was drunk...cute huh? i see that as racial bias...}

russians do rock. like my friend roman. roman, the russian. and about the whole pot vs. alcohol thing, personally, after experiencing both, i wanna stick with the alcohol. alcohol you can control more. you can sober up if something bad is happening. pot...you can not control pot. it just hits you and you're like "oh shit." and it's fun, but if something bad happened, your brain is still fucked up because you're high. and then you can't stop being high, you just get really freaked out. so yeah. anyway. i also agree about the drinking not the get drunk thing. just drink cause you enjoy the taste and relaxation. anyway, i'm starting to sound like a druggie now, so i'm just going to say "yay for college" and i like russians too. and their vodka. especially sky melon vodka.

umm...i hate the taste of alcohol (except some of the fru-fru drinks) and the only reason i drink is to get a buzz or get drunk. i'm beginning to feel like an alcoholic and i don't even drink that often. on the subject of pot, well haven't gotten around to that yet but i'm shooting for being high all day on national pot day or whatever its called.

oh college, how you've changed me.

every drinks to get drunk. i am so sick of hearing people say they dont drink to get drunk. and i bet everyone here will deny it because they want to sound better about getting drunk or something.

anyway, every single person here drinks to get drunk. so stop saying you dont.

I agree, it is human nature to not like the taste of alcohol. It is posion.

Some would argue that it is also human nature, or all nature for that matter, to take the path of least resistance. For this getting fucked up is good. In a state of blissful fuckosity there is no resistance, atleast that you can feel.

As for weed and alcohol just remember...

weed before beer... nothing to fear

beer before weed...wake up the next day next to an albino black midget, handcuffed to the bed and covered in syrup...

i'm pretty sure that's how it goes

actually hovis, i don't drink to get drunk. i have found alcohols and mixed drinks that taste good. like mango rum with pinapple juice and sierra mist. or sky melon vodka with sprite. these things taste good, and are things that me and my friends drink to enjoy...and we enjoy the relaxing effects of alcohol. and if you didn't know, there is a big difference between getting drunk and enjoying the "buzz" or relaxation.
secondly, amanda, see the drinks above. they are "serious" alcohols that taste really good. and if you want to stay high all day, try hashbrownies. they stay in your system a long, long time. but make sure you don't have too much. one of my friends had way too much and freaked out. and remember marijuana cannot kill you. i do however recommend smoking before having your first time with pot brownies. it gives you a little taste of what will happen alllll dayyyy with the brownies.
thirdly, stu, you make me laugh.
