Drunks at the newspaperstand

It’s great that all the best subcultures have their own zines. And there seems to be one out there for those who adore the almighty alcoholic beverages. Modern Drunkard is the magazine for you drunks out there. I shortly looked at the web version, and boy… they’ve got it all:

- a guide to manly drinks
- booze reviews
- wino wisdom
- guns and tequila
- drunkard of the month

I still don't think that it's actually very modern to be drunk, or is it? Is booze really the new cool?

you booze, you lose?

no, i've noticed that booze is the new hotness every couple of years. it is that time again: i'm pretty sure boozing has not been as popular in many years as it is now. and so glamourized, especially with all that Harmaa / Syvä harmaa (lonkero, that is) lovin' in Finland right now. or, that's hot, like my homegirl Paris would say.

i just miss the good ol' days when kids used to glamorize smokin pot. those were the days. nobody smokes weed anymore, i reckon? am i right?

So let's celebrate the inebriated lifestyle and open up a bottle of Grey Goose, have a sip of dat smoky Bowmore, moisten our lips with dusty '92 Remy Ma, dip our tongue into a large bowl of icy Margarita!

The Liks liked to say in their song "barcode" something like..


The drunken funk'n has returned

Let's take it back to the old school one time y'all, uhh

Ya fuckin with me?Damn right y'all fuck with us boy

(Shotglass, ha! Ain't it drunk) Alkaholiks, say what?

(Yo Tash, smack these niggaz up!)

With my Alkaholik style still comin of age

Free as a bird the beer fly on stage

Ain't here for no frontin just to say a lil' somethin

A nigga like CaTash'll get this motherfucker pumpin

I walk with a bop that make the cops shine flashlights

And I ain't drunk shit, I'm still faded from last night

That's right y'all, the Alkahol be spittin

Comin through bitches..


I drink a lot of ale, smoke a lot of L's a day

Got kegs in my room and bales of hay

Twenty-five roaches piled in my ashtray

Some like it slow some live the fast way

All the ladies know I'm wild and nas-tay

I live the "Rap Life" like my nigga Tash say

I down the whole brew, never half way

I'm back and forth to the bar in the Likwid Cafe

[Chorus 2X: Tha Liks]

Now put yo' bottles to yo' lips

When I sip, you sip, we sip - altogether now

Back, and, forth - to the bar y'all

Back, and, forth - to the bar y'all


They say one man's trash is the next man's treasure

Next man pain be the other man's pleasure

Whatever you wanna drink ma we bought the bar out

Last cats to call out, who wan' fall out?

Worst case scenario walkin, I hate talkin

Do the damn thing, let your dogs start barkin

Embracin the bass (yeah) who keep you laced

with Henessey to the face, tequila with no chaser

Liks - bang kicks, kick dirt on tricks

Fuckin smoked out rappers y'all fiend for hits

I just - drop my shit, never stop servin

Everything bump even the two-way versions

I'm the West coast Julius Earving, been through the worst

Survived starvin to death and dyin of thirst

Come through, bring a homegirl, double the fun bitch

Cause two heads is better than one, so let's go



So if Tash die tonight, rap music don't owe me shit

I done did it all homey off blood sweat and spit (yes)

Spit-zophrenic off about a half a gallon

of that strong shit that make me think Bucks like Ray Allen

Profilin in the beat-up ass bucket like fuck it

Bitch I make this car look good

Knock on wood, knock on MC's just for practice

Cause y'all niggaz can't fuck with these drunken-ass tactics


We - stompin, rompin niggaz

with the bumpin rhymes that keep the b-boys jumpin

Sayin ho, ladies sayin ow

Get it now front row wipe that brew from your brow

Cristal and malt liquor go down the same pipe

You drink with us you probably piss in the bed the same night

You throwin up on your clothes no hoes fo' sho'

Now you on your back pointin at the sky with your toes

[Chorus] - 2X as beat fades

preferring weed over alcohol makes me feel like such an outsider-loser now. i am so sad. however, good ol' fashioned smoking & drinking at the same time still rocks!

Booze is the new cool, even in Jamaican culture. I just heard the new Tanya Stephens album "Rebelution", and at least three songs were strictly about booze. She keeps namedropping classic brands from Heineken, to Smirnoff. She doesn't just mention booze - these songs are all about booze,,,
