24 Hour Party People

Well...

Good news for The Happy Mondays, The Stone Roses, and New Order.

Here's the headline from The Guardian:

ECSTASY TRIALS FOR COMBAT STRESS

"How old are you? Are you old enough?"
American soldiers traumatised by fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan are to be offered the drug ecstasy to help free them of flashbacks and recurring nightmares.
"Should you be in here watching that?"
The US food and drug administration has given the go-ahead for the soldiers to be included in an experiment to see if MDMA, the active ingredient in ecstasy, can treat post-traumatic stress disorder.
"And how old are you? Are you owning up?"
Scientists behind the trial in South Carolina think the feelings of emotional closeness reported by those taking the drug could help the soldiers talk about their experiences to therapists. Several victims of rape and sexual abuse with post-traumatic stress disorder, for whom existing treatments are ineffective, have been given MDMA since the research began last year.
"Should you be in here with...twenty four hour party people, plastic face can't smile the white out!"
Michael Mithoefer, the psychiatrist leading the trial, said: "It's looking very promising. It's too early to draw any conclusions but in these treatment-resistant people so far the results are encouraging. People are able to connect more deeply on an emotional level with the fact they are safe now."
"Twenty four hour party people, plastic face can't smile the white out!"

Wow.

Good times.

Wonder if there's some cash in that new ($82,000,000,000) budget request for cigarettes, orange juice, and silly string?

"Hallelujah, hallelujah, we'll take a bit of, we'll take a bit of this and that!"

Have people ever listened to Toby Keith while ex-ing?

"God. What does that sound like?"

More later...

  • Why don't you give it a rest, chickenshit asshole.

  • wait... why is Brando a 'chickenshit asshole' exactly?

    If you don't like it... why not? Does his opinion scare you in such a way that you have to resort to name calling (a form of intimidation)?

    If you disagree with what he says then offer constructive criticism and an argument of your own (and by 'argument' I don't mean angry shouting, I mean a logical exchange of ideas).

    It's what the Baby Jesus would want.

  • Dunno how Brando winds up chickenshit in this, and I'm not shagging myself to ferret the possible meanings of generic ad hominem obscenity.

    I'm here to report even better news for fans of the Happy Mondays, Stone Roses, and New Order: the release of the Kasabian disc. Baggy trance beats and Manc accented belligerance are back, folks. With Oasis dropping out for two years and Burgess fucking around in LA, it's what was needed.

  • ingwimbe likes to call folks chickenshit assholes. see his pathetic/scary blog. it makes him feel like a manly man. in a personality disorder kind of way. he is a 9 year old bully (or bullied) trapped in a man's body.

    ingwimbe could use a hit of x, an early 90s Orb album, and a few ice pops.

    poor ingwimbe. poor, poor ingwimbe.
