Purple Stuff: Energy Drink Review



When I first saw a poster for "Purple Stuff," I had to tweet about it. Secondarily, I had to text my friends that make racist jokes -(in excellent taste)- so they could have a decent laugh.

I confess that "Purple Stuff" is a name that grabs the attention, so I commend the marketing designers, and the colors stand out over other cans on the energy drink shelves. However, how does this product compare in terms of taste and quality?

Well, I have only myself to blame for ignoring the obvious and purchasing something called "Superliminal." It had a silly name, and I am a silly goose of a human being. The problem was that I assumed that every product bearing the name "Purple Stuff" would actually be purple, regardless of lemon or lime flavor...after all Pepsi had Pepsi Blue and Crystal.

This was not purple at all.

The taste was not exciting. It did not have the stark bites of certain drinks such as "Full Throttle" in the past. Even "Red Bull" has a certain distinct flavor that is able to grab the attention of the consumer, for better or for worse. Carbonation was not overpowering, which I liked, but it lacked enough flavor and strength for total satisfaction.

In the end this was just rather dull.
On the shelf next to all other energy drinks, this one actually boasts the abilities of "calming" effects instead of serving as a hyperactive enhancer. Overall, it had about as strong of a reaction as a can of sprite. In other words "dull."

Will I buy this product again?
Probably.
Why?
Because it is amusing. :P :P
It's a shallow world.

QATFYG:
How often do you drink purple Kool-Aid?

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

movies you should see: hiroshima mon amour

Hiroshima, Mon Amour this movie has been on my mind a lot lately, due to the recent events in Japan. when I saw it about a year ago, it easily made an impression on me. easily. it was just so beautiful, in every way thinkable. it follows the story of a French actress and her Japanese architect lover, having a conversation together as they lie in bed. the majority of the film is told in flashbacks of their lives in WWII (the film was made in 1959, so there's a ten year gap there). he was directly affected by the dropping of the atom bomb in Hiroshima; she was ostracized due to her involvement with a German soldier. the reason I was propelled to see it was the song "Burning Hearts" by My Favorite- "I was an architect, she was an actress, I drew the Eiffel Tower upon her dress." (really good song too, by the way! RIP My Favorite). luckily, you can find the movie online. here's a portion of it: I HOPE YOU LIKE READING FILMS it's given credit (so I am
