Tweak: Growing Up on Methamphetamines

Nic Sheff

First of all, it's Friday and I'm home!!!! =] YES!

"Nic Sheff was drunk for the first time at age eleven. In the years that followed, he would regularly smoke pot, do cocaine and Ecstacy, and develop addictions to crystal meth and heroin. Even so, he felt like he would always be able to quit and put his life together whenever he needed to. It took a violent relapse.."

Anywho, the book Tweak is a memoir of Nic Sheff, its author. One thing I can guarantee is that it is way better than A Million Little Pieces by James Frey. James Frey's memoir is half false, or supposedly an "exaggeration" of a stretched out truth? In my opinion, if a part is false, even if it is minute, it's still false, which makes it a lie. (It should be fictional, rather than a memoir.) Out of all the books I had read so far about addictions and such, this is, by far, one of the most eye-opening story. It took me out of my reality, and made me feel like I was in his world.

I recommend this book. If you would like to get sunken in into a person's shoe to feel how it is to be like them, this book would be a good choice. It will take you into a roller coaster of emotions; from sky high to rock bottom.

Even though the story is kind of monotonous and predictable, the stories that come with it are powerful and moving. What I mean is that he would get sober, meet somebody, relapse, get sober, meet somebody, relapse. But, there are amazing stories woven in his tedious journey to sobriety.

My favorite part is when he told a story of how there was an orgy of guys in his apartment. Yea, you can kind of tell where that one was going. It was a little bit too detailed, but it caught my attention. It put an emphasis on how bad of an addict he was, that he would go to any measure just to get the substance flowing in his blood.

Nic Sheff's father, David Sheff wrote Beautiful Boy: A Father's Journey Through His Son's Addiction. It goes along great with Tweak. It shows another perspective and hardships towards dealing with Nic's addiction.

This is super-dooper nasty. Ewww!

Monkey Mayhem?!

(From The New York Post)

The past couple of days, this cartoon has been on headlines to the next. This cartoon was supposedly humorous? What's funny about a cop shooting a primate on the first place?

Some thoughts about it:
  • Many said that it depicted President Obama and his stimulus bill (as in, the chimp being Mr. Obama....). Since he is the first African-American president, I can guarantee you that he probably has the most death threats in all the presidencies.

    We all know that the term 'monkey' was and still is a racist slur against African-Americans. Therefore you can conclude that the monkey was signifying President Obama.

  • Another perspective is that the chimp represented all African-Americans getting shot by the police. I'm sorry, but in all honesty, a lot do get shot by cops.

  • On the other hand, the cartoonist might be just coinciding it with the chimp who nearly killed a lady, in Connecticut.
Ultimately, cartoons ALWAYS have hidden meanings in them. As bad is this might sound, I think it was an interpretation of Pres. Obama and his stimulus plan. I'm a big fan of Obama, but not a fan of the stimulus bill.

This is just a tough time for a lot of people. Yes, recession is a bitch.
History does repeat itself. Remember the Great Depression, back in the 1930s?
Everybody blamed it on Hoover.. Why? Because he was in charge, but a part of it was just bad timing. (In October of 1929, stock-market prices on the New York Stock Exchange had a calamitous downfall, it made the economy crashed. It was a chain reaction from banks to banks, businesses to businesses, etc.. It's a long explanation; I'll explain when it comes up again.) If something drastic like that will happen in today's society, guess who will the Americans blame it on..? Yes, Obama..

Please, open your eyes and realize the dilemma that we're in. The United States is a great country, but it's heading down an extremely steep hill.

Mz Don Dada

I'm not the usual person to put people on blast, but this is an exception to the rule.
It's too fucking funny.

Introducing to everybody: 'Mz Don Doda'!! -with the blacken nipples and a red g-string. NICEEE.

All I can say is HOLY FUCKING SHIT?!
I hope your parents see this.
I would message you on MySpace, but I think you're page is filled with nasty dudes trying get at you. They're probably old guys who cannot get laid.

  • I don't understand why your thong is still on.. Girl, we can see your cooch.. OK?!
  • Nice way of censoring your nipples.
  • Nice spellings. Try going to school, instead of spending time taking pictures of your blubbers.
  • Does it really matter how many friends you have on MySpace?.. The question is, 'How many friends do you have in REAL LIFE?'
  • Oh yea, so I was watching TV and I heard somebody said that 'Texans are proof that the world is populated by Aliens'. I guess they were right.
  • Hell yea.. Everything is bigger in Texas.

So sexy.
"Is she a model for McDonalds?" asked Mom.

I can be an extreme asshole, but I feel bad.
Yes, I do have a conscience. =]

Drinks. - Pt. 1

schnapps (shnäps)
Any strong, dry spirit, as slivovitz, aquavit, or kirsch.
(The definition from

An alcoholic drink that fucks you up fast.
(The definition from Mikki's experiences. Haha.)

Anywho, I recently became a fan of schnapps. My first love are cognacs (French brandy. Well, the term 'COGNAC' was derived from a region in Western France.) Hennessey is my absolute favorite! Yumm. =]

The problem I had with cognacs was that you can't experiment on them. I tried, and it tasted nasty, in my opinion. Well, cognacs are not meant to be mixed anyways. I was probably a little drunk to realize. HAHA. The only thing I like drinking Hennessey with is Hypnotiq (the Hulk). Also, it is expensive for a bottle.

I started trying different types of alcoholic beverages, from brandy to liqueurs. Along the way, I found schnapps. I thought they were like liqueurs. You know, sweet and all that sugary stuff. I'm also a big fan of liqueurs. It's something to balance the drinks out. The misconception between schnapps and liqueur is that they are just the same. UH, NO! Liqueur is basically like schnapps, but with sugar and flavorings. The ORIGINAL schnapps (from Germany) does not have sugar, but have a distinct flavor also. In the U. S., they pretty much are the same.

One of my favorite schnapps is peppermint-flavored ones. Rumple Minze is my absolute favorite out of the peppermint-flavored schnapps (50% alcohol, 100 proof). This one has sugar, about 10g per serving. Yea, that's how I gained weight.

Some examples of common liqueurs/schnapps that you might've came across are: X-Rated, Hypnotiq, 99 Schnapps (Blackberries, Black Cherries, Apples, Bananas, and Oranges).

These are predominantly from my general knowledge that I came across. If something is wrong, say so. =]

PART 2 is coming up.
Specifics on gin, and rum. =]

For the people who are big fans of sneakers. DUH!!!
Anywho, I was bored today, so I browsed through the website. I saw A LOT of people who doesn't even have a pair of sneakers on their page; NONE at all. I understand that if they're new, but these people had been on it for at least a year. The pictures were just 'body' pics, which made people's blood boil (in a good way). Also, I saw some pages with one pair of sneakers, and then a lot of pictures of their asses and titties. Come on now, I highly doubt that Hugh Hefner would look in Sneakerplay for the next Marylin Monroe. If that's not the case, save all those pictures for MySpace, so some internet stalkers could praise you. Yupp, I know; EVERYBODY loves attention.

I'm the least person to start drama, that's why I didn't put anybody on blast. One day, I will.
This states as a warning. =]

Super Bowl XLIII

YEZR!! STEELERS won, baby!! Go Santonio Holmes for scoring the winning touch down!! I told y'all we were going to win!

Tasha had a Super Bowl get-togther. It was good, until somebody fell down the stairs. HAHAHA. Believe me, it was a pretty steep drop. Haha. I'm not going to mention any names, but for the people who were there, they already know. =].
Ultimately, it was good. Chilled with people, saw some new faces. =]

Here are some pictures:

The hero who saved the Steelers's asses from a butt whoopin'.
Yupp, it's Mr. Holmes.
