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?

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

You Need to Hear This: Concrete Castles

I first heard of First to Eleven a few years ago thanks to the powers of social media. They are a talented young band straight out of my hometown (Erie, PA). Since I've first heard of them, First To Eleven - which primarily were a social media-based cover band - has revealed an original music incarnation, Concrete Castles.  No matter if they're covering songs or releasing their own music, one thing is evident: Concrete Castles is MASSIVELY talented. Anchored by Audra Miller's powerhouse vocals that are vaguely reminiscent of Hayley Williams, Concrete Castles demand your attention. Although they can fall in that sort of amorphous "indie pop" umbrella, I don't think their sound would be amiss on mainstream radio - top 40 or alternative.  "Wish I Missed U" - their debut album - came out earlier this September, and it's an enjoyable, invigorating listen that would probably make those who were raised on emo or fans of CHVRCHES feel at home. Hell, Anth
