New Year's Eve In NYC

First of all if you plan on going anywhere near Times Square tonight stop by a pawn shop on your way, buy a cheap gun and blow your stupid brains out. That said there's plenty of good shit going on tonight.

If you've got the balls to brave the city then I suggest hitting Don Hill's for the Rated-x/Trash NYE party with Team Robespierre. Aside from that most of the parties that have caught my eye are going down in Brooklyn. I was going to put together a huge list of parties but it looks like my homeboys over at MyOpenBar and Shaw Promotion have already done that.

NOOOOO!!!! They're Pulling The Plug On SPARKS.

Whenever I plan on going out all night and I want to make sure I have fuel in my tanks around 2AM I down a couple of cans of Sparks before I head out. It's become a bit of ritual at this point. Sparks is an acquired taste but to those of us who have acquired it today is a sad day. The Man is banning Sparks and ALL other caffeine infused alcohol.

While I realize this shit is not at all good for you - you know what else isn't good for you? ALCOHOL. So we're banning the use of a mild stimulant but the POISON we're putting it into is fine? Now, that's not to say I have anything against booze, in fact, I love the shit. But why the fuck is the government stepping in over fucking caffeine?

Seriously? The shit in coffee and soda and chocolate and McDonald's hamburgers is getting banned from mixing with booze? That's god damn segregation if I ever saw it - I thought we've moved past that shit.

Well, I'd love to rant more but I have to go down to the beer distributor and buy two dozen cases of Sparks. Which I'll now refer to as Ebay gold.

Bush VS. Shoeman, Animated Gifs

Boing Boing has an awesome post with a bunch of funny Bush gifs. I mean we all knew this was coming and I have to say these are pretty good but I think there will be better ones popping up soon.

The downtown party legends are teaming up to bring you a crazy as fuck New Years Eve party. I look at NYE party listings all damn day and I can tell you that unless you're down with the collar popping set then there isn't much to look forward too. But now you got Team Robespierre playing on New Years! That's going to be fucking madness. And if you buy a ticket before the end of the week it's only $10, which is like $30 less then anywhere else. Unless of course you plan on spending NYE on your couch. In which case a bottle of Andre and some Beefaroni will run you about $6.50.

Bill Murray Parties With Hipsters

I'm sure you've heard the news that Bill Murray has been hitting up loft parties in Bushwick and other random shit like that. People are making out like he's some creepy old man or something and I think that's a crock of shit. I really don't see the big fucking deal here. Let the man have some fun.

He's 58 years old, not 80, and he just got divorced. I would be party hopping with 25 year olds too if I were him. It's not like he was fucking molesting broads or anything. The point of my rant is Bill Murray is fucking cool so leave the guy alone. Bill if you're reading this let's grab a beer!

Duff's Moved. Dimebag Tribute On Saturday

I found out a couple weeks ago that the best metal bar in NYC, Duff's, was moving. What I didn't realize was that it happened this past weekend. While it's a bit of a bummer they left the old N. 3rd spot it's kinda fucking awesome that they moved pretty close to where I live! Now I can go drink cheap booze and listen to Pantera whenever I want (and not be alone). The new Duff's is located at 168 Marcy, near Broadway.

While we're on the topic of Pantera Duff's will be hosting a Dimebag tribute party on Saturday. Let's not forget one of the best guitar players, and all around good dudes, in metal history. Of course, I'll be at a fucking wedding in Jersey but have a Blacktooth shot for me.

Free Download: Vice Holiday Sampler + Raveonettes MP3

Times are rough, you probably lost your job (if you had one to begin with). So free shit is especially appreciated these days. Say thanks for Vice for putting together a nice holiday sampler with tracks from Black Lips, King Khan, Dark Meat (my new fave band), and more. Sure, you probably illegally downloaded these tracks months ago but it's still a nice gesture.
