The Krude Experience - Legal Speed

Legal Speed

After the W Bush Administration of recent years outlawed ephedrine in over the counter diet pills (and trucker's speed),the race to make the speediest legal energy drink has been on. With the huge cola companies challenging the new upstart energy drink companies,we the consumers are the nervously twitching benefactors. Krude likes him some artificial energy. When it comes in form of a tasty potable elixir,Krude be happy. And very alert. 

I recently bought two energy drinks at a 711 that were kinda new to the energy drink world. Rockstar Boom Energy whipped strawberry and Mutant Super Soda. I wanted to try both on separate days to see which drink would wake my sleepy Rx filled ass up more. And taste great as well. The Rockstar whipped strawberry won hands down. Tastes great and has plenty of caffeine. The Mutant tasted like slightly more carbonated Mountain Dew,but didn't have the kick that Rockstar had. Not bad,but not a go to energy buzz on the fly.

Stacker energy shots are a great dollar store find. $1 for a decent tasting quick buzz. Much better than 5 Hour Energy shots. Those taste like shit. And cost $3 on average. I also find Energy Tabs at the dollar store. I've written about these before. And Krude feels strongly about their potency. Good stuff. 21 tabs for a buck.

I'll never truly understand why Red Bull is so popular. Every variety I have tried tasted awful and didn't move me much. I always see Red Bull at bars as well. Red Bull is NOT Krude approved. Fuck that swill. Though their soccer arena looks like a funky Ed Wood-esque flying saucer in the middle of the Ghettolands of Newark,NJ.

Some kid died the other day by 'overdose of caffeine'. Sad news. But I'm sure there was more to that story. Caffeine is a great stimulant. But not for minors who aren't fully formed adults yet.

Drugs are drugs. Booze is booze. A buzz is a buzz. Everybody wants to feel better.Life as we know it....

With so many energy drinks to choose from these days,which one is for you? I usually choose a sugar free drink. The excess sugar in most energy drinks is what causes the most bodily harm. So many people I know won't even go near any kind of energy drink. But will easily order a 20oz coffee every morning. And Krude won't go anywhere near coffee. So touche'. I'm a green tea maven. Sounds sissy. But green tea beats down my bodily toxicity levels. So let the Cisco flow free!

Ready to go!

The Krude Experience - The Golden Scarab

The Golden Scarab

Sometimes,all it takes for 'ol Krude to buck up and smile a bit is to pull out an old cd and let it rip. Between various physical ailments and work related stress,the need to cheerfully grimace is a daily requisite. So when I dug deep into the Krude archives (piles of cds),I found an old friend: The Golden Scarab. By Ray Manzarek.

If you recognize the name of this musician,Krude respects you. If you're already familiar with the album,Krude bows towards you. Ray Manzarek was the bespectacled keyboard player from the American rock band The Doors. His album The Golden Scarab was recorded a few years after Doors singer Jim Morrison passed away. The album was largely ignored for most of its first 14 years of existence. Then in 1989,a book called Wonderland Avenue by Danny Sugerman came out. Wonderland Avenue was about Sugerman growing up while hanging out with Morrison and the Doors. Eventually,Sugerman became Manzarek's manager. And during Sugerman's stint as manager,Manzarek released The Golden Scarab in 1974.

Kinda weird that an eclectic album by a late,great musician such as Ray Manzarek would tickle my fancy again in 2017. But with most music being created these days so cut and pasted and autotuned and protooled,I'm just not into most modern music. But an album recorded in 1974 has a certain warmth and genuine talent within it. Prove me wrong.

...In the beginning,it was the rhythm I had forgotten and was waiting for the word...

The album starts with Manzarek speaking those words. And then procedes to tell the story of a small ball of holy shit: The Golden Scarab. It's Egyptian folklore done rock style by an ex hippie millionaire piano player that was truly the creative force behind the Doors. This album sounds like the logical step after the last Doors album with Morrison- L.A. Woman. With Manzarek singing. Jim Morrison would be want to be on this album. And probably Nik Turner (points for knowing this reference). Awesome album. Roger Waters can suck a dick.

I can see why The Golden Scarab didn't sell well at the time of its release in 1974. The Floyds and Zeppelins of the world were the dominate force on radio and on the concert trail. People were heavily into that normal classic rock shit i.e. The Eagles,Boston,Steve Miller etc.. Alternative music was a few years away from being officially recognized. The 1970's were a fucked up time. I remember vividly. Just ask :)

For my money,I'll take honest creativity over any radio friendly unit shifting product any day of the week. Finding artists with pure integrity gets tougher and tougher everyday. Krude champions creativity.  

Buddha's eating ice cream and so is Lao Tzu
Freud and Jung now holding hands and saying i'm with you

Thank you Ray.

Bum Wine Of The Week - Cisco Peach

It's that time of year once again when we take a trip down Cisco lane for another dose of the liquid crack! Looking for a great gift to give mom this Mother's Day? Do her a favor and keep looking. You are much better off buying mom a bWb brown bag koozie from shop.bumwinebob.com instead of a bottle of Cisco.

We have Peach Cisco on tap for your "enjoyment" as the new bum wine of the week. I'm sure you know by now what to expect when it comes to the legendary Cisco, so I can spare you the details. As soon as you crack open this bottle you can smell how cheap it is with it's strong aroma. Like most other flavors of Cisco, the peach comes in at 18% abv. and is NOT a wine cooler! Even if you can look past the aroma, the first sip isn't much better. It has a strong flavor, but you can't really taste much peach. After a few sips it does start to go down a little smoother, but that burn never goes away.

After hearing about it's taste some people will say, "what's the point of drinking Cisco?" Well, for under $2 a bottle you can't go wrong with the buzz you get from it. I don't know how long this bottle was sitting on the bottom shelf since it was covered with dust, but I felt like I had to be the one to drink it and finish if off. I know not many people will down a whole bottle of Cisco themselves in one sitting, but if you do be ready for one nasty hangover the next day.

If you haven't had the privlidge of enjoying a bottle of Cisco, make sure you pick one up the next time you see it in your travels. Cisco Peach is the BWB Bum Wine Of The Week!

Remember to check out the koozies and other great Bumming with Bobcat merch at shop.bumwinebob.com to help support the blog and podcast! Tune in LIVE this Monday at 10pm ET to Bumming with Bobcat at sfdradio.com or check out the podcast in the archives! Cheers!

The Krude Experience - Drinking Cisco Before a Date (and chasing it with Wild I Ginseng)

Drinking Cisco Before a Date (and chasing it with Wild I Ginseng)

Working on a Saturday sucks. But in Krude's line of work,it is necessary. I am left alone in a huge showroom with 8 hours of very little to do. So with Krude being Krude,I have worked in some drinking on the job to help with the doldrums of slinging hash on a nice weekend day. And with a dinner date set up with my current large chested,sweet assed chick for this evening,I'm choosing to start the night with chilled Strawberry Cisco. The Cisco is currently chilling in the office fridge. My pain pills don't need a temperature. Just space between doses. 5pm looks like the time for liftoff.

The Wild Irish Rose Wild Fruit with Ginseng is the chaser for tonight's festivities. But the issue is that I've never mixed Cisco with Wild I ever in the same night. The ginseng in this Wild I will keep me awake all night-that is a given. This is now going to be low rent scientific research into the effects of multiple bum wine ingestation (mixed with a few painkillers). Krude has you covered. And Krude probably hungover tomorrow pretty bad.

Cracked open the Cisco at 5:15 pm,45 minutes before closing the store. Poured into a cup in case somebody walks in. Cisco hits the spot. Bottom shelf,yes. Mega buzz worthy,yes. Gonna have a good night. Chick with legendary tits gonna get a solid workout this evening.

Krude drinking on the job tip: spray Ozium around area where you are drinking on the job. Kills smell of booze quick.

Polished off the Cisco. Drove to skirts place. Then went to dinner at a dive bar. Dive bar had High West whiskey. Took mine on the rocks. Ate a Po Boy sandwich. Talked some shit with chick. Made it back to her place in one piece.

Time for Wild I ginseng. Lord help me now.

Capping a drunken evening with Wild I ginseng is a high risk,high reward gamble. Mixed in with vigorous sex.I'm drunk,wired,and good to pop twice.  Not recommended for lesser souls with weak knees. Cisco + Wild I on same night : Krude approved.

Lord help me now...

Kinda hungover. But feeling good enough for morning and pre dinner fucking. Krude with another 5 star weekend. Plus,the broad kinda liked the Wild I. I caught her taking a sip of my bottle when I was coming back from the shitter. My kinda chick. Or maybe just a hardcore alky with a solid package. Either way,she is Krude approved. Mahalo.

Lube optional
