Some of you may have noticed a certain lack of a blind drunk judiciary last Friday. Let me explain. Last week Philadelphia Lawyer wrote a post discussing the different types of drunk various alcohols will make you. I disagreed with his assessment (it’s in the comments). He claimed that beer produces a slow, stupid drunk, and so to test this theory, I got royally shithoused on Yuengling.
Okay, so you might be thinking Yuengling, sure it’s a pretty decent beer taste wise, but it’s only 4.4% ABV. How do you get shithoused on that? Simple. First, start drinking early in the day, to raise your baseline blood alcohol content from 0.00 to somewhere closer to 0.03-0.04. This is called a “running start.” Then, when the time is right, you just move to regular fast-paced drinking. At that point you will be 100% prepared to record the worst podcast I’ve ever suffered through editing.
I woke up Friday with possibly the worst hangover I’ve ever had, and as such didn’t get a lot of editing done. Then, of course, Saturday and Sunday are reserved for watching football, so I didn’t get a lot done then either. That brings us to this morning, when the final, god-awful, don’t-say-I-didn’t-warn-you, seriously-please-don’t-bother-listening-to-this version was edited, music was added, tracks were mixed down to two channels, exported to mp3 format and uploaded to the internets.
Seriously, “unattractive nuisance” doesn’t even begin to describe this shit storm.
And faaantastic… While previewing this post to make sure everything was working …it’s not. The audio plug in I use was “updated” twice over the weekend, so of course it’s not working. If it doesn’t play, just right click on “Download,” select “Save Link As,” and you can just listen to it on whatever media player you use.
