Final Fantasy: PIV Page is Live

June 27, 2008

Well to celebrate a glorious return to the blogging world and also MaoChan’s new design, I have released the first version of the greatest drinking game ever conceived. Don’t get me wrong but Kings gets stale, Beer Pong (whatever the fuck version you play) requires room and equipment, and Flip Cup is just that (read: Stupid). So now here is a drinking game that feeds the nerd side of people and offers complexity, strategy, cunning, and most of all, the opportunity to drink a fuckton of alcohol.

Check out the page listed on the top, right-hand side of the site.

Enjoy.

Fancy Up The Wine Party

June 19, 2008

Wine is a great beast to try and conquer. Complex, various, elegant, uptight, snobby. Well when you have friends over you need to make sure you can accommodate everyone. For the snot nosed douche bag who thinks Santa Margherita is the pinnacle of pinot grigios (come on, it is an $18 bottle) you can laugh in his face while sipping some fine Oberon ’94 cab from these fine, hand blown glass solo cups.

These glasses are actually very nice and fancy despite their shape. Sure you can drink from some Reidell stemless red wine goblets (barf) or some Waterford Crystal glasses (they sure are nice) but when you got the beer pong cup on a stem, it is definitely the way to go.

Wino.

Johnnie Worker: Red Labial

June 2, 2008

I found a new sauce that can take the edge off. No it’s not a bottle of Macallan’s 21 or even say some good ol’ Dewars. It is Johnnie Worker Red Labial. Smooth, refreshing with a hint of tang. Poon tang some might note.

For the party, for the Worker.

Nikka Yoichi 20 Year Scotch: Best Single Malt in The World

April 30, 2008

No longer does Japan have to sit bitch to the Scottish Highlands when it comes to scotch. Whisky Magazine, the leading authority on the spirit, just revealed that Nikka Yoichi 20 year old single malt has won best of the year. If you are wondering what it tastes like:

Nose: amazingly original at first nosing, starting on old kelp, oysters, fishmonger’s… Also tar, diesel oil, well hung pheasant. All that settles down then and we get more ‘regular’ nuts, cigar box, leather, caramel crème and vanilla – and let’s not forget the spices (curry, lots of cinnamon)… A fantastic and unusual profile.

Mouth: bold, ample, spicy attack, with a great sourness (small apples, grape skin). Gets quite acrid but that’s great in this context. Superb sharpness. Develops on ‘genuine’ liquorice, something varnishy, tea, notes of Fino (flor, old walnuts). Hints of kiwi and green apples. Beautiful and highly original. Long finish mostly on fresh apples and cinnamon… I love it, I think it’s a masterpiece. 91 points. –Whisky Exchange

Time to get ripped.

Care For Some Lil’ Jon Wine? EEEYYYEEEAAAHHH!!

April 4, 2008

Lil Jon & The East Side Boyz

In what is sure to be the greatest thing since Haley’s comet collided with the moon is the announcement that Lil’ Jon will be releasing his very own wine. While not as hoity-toity as other beverages the rapper was interviewed about it:

Lil Jon acknowledges that he’s no wine connoisseur. “I’m not no ‘drink wine every day’ kind of dude,” he said in a telephone interview. “I’m not like an expert, so don’t ask me no questions … I just like the taste.”

So people, get ready fo’ the revolution. Break out and start polishing those goblets that you packed away, which by the way how dare you did that to begin with. Go call all the video ho looking bitches you know and get the blunts sparking cuz we be ready to get low on some 750mL Lil’ Jon Cabernet or maybe even a Shiraz. With some wangs and side o’ ranch BIOTCH!

Crackers and cheese too? OOOOKKKAAYY!!

Yamanote Loop Line Halloween Massacre

October 30, 2007

Yamanote Loop Line Issue Pics

OK, it wasn’t a massacre in that no one died. But lots of people apparently acted like douchebags. Really, this is the kind of thing that makes people hate Americans and having foreigners in their country in general. Reports put it at

about 200 to 250 foreigners, most of them Caucasian. There was also a number of Japanese participants, most of them Japanese women. After getting on the train, the party-goers became drunk and loud, shouting in English and becoming aggressive towards a few Japanese. At some point, an idiot removed or disabled the lighting in the train car, forcing the train to make an emergency stop at Shinagawa station, where police forced everyone out of the train and tried to see what had gone wrong with the lights. It is unclear whether this put an end to the party, or if it continued afterwards.

Nothing ruins fun like retard shenanigans. Hit the jump for a hilarious letter which “details” the happenings of the night.

Chu-Hi: A True Hidden Japan Gem

October 29, 2007

ChuHi

I had mentioned I would elaborate on what the fuck Chu-Hi is, well here you go:

Chuhai (チューハイ or 酎ハイ, Chuhai?), sometimes sold as chuhi, is an alcoholic drink originating from Japan. The name is derived from “shōchū highball” and is usually flavored with fruit or soda.

Think candy soda with alcohol in it. Coming in flavors such as lime, grapefruit, apple, orange, pineapple, grape, kiwi, ume (plum), yuzu (a citrus fruit), peach, and personal favorite, Ramune, the drink usually when served at a bar is low in alcohol. But in the can it can go up to as high as 7% (14 proof). Meaning that while you thought you were a big boy drinking beer, the Chu-Hi dude is getting ripped twice as fast. Many a night were obliterated thanks to the wonder that is Chu-Hi.
