    The real exciting part is not from doing acid now, it is having an acid flashback 20 years from when you are driving down the highway. HAVE FUN.

    This, Gizmo, is an example of “Johnny Cash eating cake in a bush” levels of high. I’m not even entirely sure he knows what he said.

    Do you not know what an acid flashback is?

    Never had one, so not really. Psychedelics were never my area of expertise, though I doubt Walp experimenting with them once is gonna lead to permanent brain imprints to the point where he flashes back.

    The thing is that certain substances can enrich in your fat cells and get released at random times. Although I guess dropping acid once won't lead to a flashback.

    It would be odd if you didn't.

    A good friend of mine told me this happend to him once. Also, in a very inappropiate moment. He used to take quite a lot of drugs as teenager, his parents threw him out of their home, he got in trouble with the police and so on. He was clean when I got to know him.

    However, he said that he once had this experience, where he was on a fun fair with a girlfriend or something and right when he got onto one of those large spinning thingies, you know with seats and such, like this:



    He had one of those flashs.

    Watched Ray Romano's Netflix special, out of curiousity, never saw his stand-up before (well, who the hell did?)
    First of all, perfectly passable, I chuckled, nothing revolutionary, family-related topics, akin to the sitcom

    He did seem slightly insecure though, which I found a bit odd, he also had - and mind you, I usually never point stuff like this out, it's often casually thrown left and right, but this time it seemed very glaring to me - his eyes seemed very flushed, like he had puffed up a big fat fattie in order to get himself on stage. That kind of ... dutch courage rastafarian style can sometimes backfire a bit, maybe adding to a bit of a nervousness or slight insecurity, but I'm probably reading too much into it... but yeah, almost distractingly pink eyes.

    In contrast, I also watched Ken Jeong's simultaneously published special, and I was immediately bored by the loud antics, as well as distracted by what seemed like a very artificial audience. His entire first ten minutes depend on there being women in the audience - sitting right next to him, at that - sharing the same name as his wife. Those are obvious plants, and take away from the rest of the show. Wanted to sate my curiousity, so,

    Ray Romano, 6,5/10, good chuckle, nothing mind-blowing, nice mellow vibe
    Ken Jeong, N/A, didn't watch more than 10 minutes.

    Jim Jeffries and Bill Burr are obvious favorites, but they've been milked dry, I'd let them take long - loooong hiatuses, to rebuild material. As audience, we often underestimate how much work goes into compiling a good special.

    I really would like another Anthony Jeselnik one though, that guy is murder savage

    Silent Hill is based on that. Was going to visit but I didn't get to.
