Last night I found myself watching a show called "The Drug Years." I've never taken a drug in my life, but I like learning about stuff like that sometimes. Just like I'll watch a show about Hitler even though I'm not down with Hitler.

Here's what I got out of the show--and, please note, it only confirmed the feelings I already had:

Terrible job by ecstasy people.

All the other drug eras had something going for them. The sixties hippies with their counterculture-y stuff, the seventies disco nuts with their crazy outfits, the eighties coke fiends with their over-the-top extravagance, the nineties rockers with their chic heroin... But those boring, lame-ass rave-people with their shitty dancing, man...just horrible. Do they actually get credit for being the drug people of the last few years?

They had some dude on there talking about how all these ravers came together as a whole and were one with the music and all this crap. You don't need X or E or whatever to experience that! Seriously, terrible job.

And while I was all caught up in that show, I realized I missed Fancy Nancy...

chic heroin? I think not...
ha. what other adjective describes heroin?

I just meant, despite being completely anti-drugs myself, that at least it can be interesting to hear drug stories...but those ravers....TJ.
Agreed. I just don't think I've ever heard a heroin story that didn't involve someone dying/slipping into a coma/throwing their lives away, and I'm not familiar with anything decent inspired by it besides movies about how terrible it is.
Right. I wasn't saying, "I think drugs are cool sometimes." I just meant the topic can usually spark interest--except for that one thing. It was all really supposed to be funny and stuff.
