    Default The Annual Nothingman Pre-Party Thread

    saw the other thread, but it's a 2-3 year tradition that I attempt to gather the masses for a pre-party (which usually ends up being a total clusterfuck). I see Beer hunter in La Q getting some votes... I'd say (as I said last year), Village Pub if peeps are looking for downtown Palm Springs excitement. Otherwise, I guess Beerhunter works. Kind of a lame Sports Bar, though they have a good beer selection.

    The whole point is to meet people on the board, put names with faces, then mercilessly, viciously murder one random person that you don't like. You know, like a Grizzly would do to a Silverback...

    Oh yeah, I have yet to show up for my own pre-parties but this year features a special guest who will be attending her first coachella. She's little.

    Yeah because this is what its supposed to be every year and somebody else just made a thread before he did. So we should move the list of people to this.

    one, Hunters, is gay/lesbian, but str8 people would have fun too

    Toucans is the main gay/straight one (its in north ps), not near bear wear

    I have no idea where alternative bars (as in alternative music) would be - that would be a str8 bar (where I am sure gays would be welcome)

    I missed last years due to dull friends who wanted to go for a shitty meal instead - This year they were not invited, and replaced with much more lively folk. So, count us in (4 brits and 2 aussies)

    I missed last year because I was staying in Indio Friday night (Palm Springs the other nights), and we were waiting for my brother & his friend to join us at our hotel room. Maybe if I had gone, I would have avoided all the crappy things that happened last year on the board. :P Maybe not though. I can come off conceited because I'm so shy.

    I missed last year because a UFO landed on my car... Blah, blah, blah, people... Excuses, excuses...

    Nando-Not a spinner, I'm actually talking about my 6 week old baby girl, Harper.
    I like how your mind works though...

    ZZZ- Is there a rule that prohibits babies from entering smoke-free bars? No, there isn't. She won;t be drinking much, but if we go to a place with a patio, she can chill and enjoy the fresh mountain air.

    And no gay bars. Look, gay bars a great place to hook up with members of the same sex and all, but this isn't a hook-up event. It's more of a meet/greet/then get a little giddy talking about the lineup. If past history holds true, a little under 100 people will say they are coming to the pre-party (which will not be held in York's pants this year, by the way) and about 13 will show up. Considering i flaked on my own party last year, I can attest to the difficulty of making it out when you're geared for coachella. I was staggering drunk by noon on Thursday last year, and for all I know the same thing may happen this year. But, I'm PLANNING on being there (wherever "there" is) this year. Some of you may officially get banned from this thing. I don't get on this board very often now that I know nothing about sleep, but I've seen some douchebaggery on here upon browsing. For you underagers, please notify us if you have fake I.D.'s or if we need to make it a place where everyone can convene, regardless of age.

    Oh, and zzz, don't worry about being shy. I'll drop some dexedrine in your drink and you'll be talkative enough.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't babies underage?

    And no thanks to dexedrine. I need to sleep on Thursday night! I need Valium more than dexedrine.

    Just enough dex to get you talking.

    And if Hawking ever came around here, I'm pretty sure he could photoshop a fake ID for Harper. If not, I'm positive that taking a baby to a bar isn't illegal. I would never take her to a smoky bar, but a nice patio, why the hell not???

    Nothingman knows I'm down. And I would've liked the dexadrine, but I gotta hit the psych on Friday and get my Adderall back anyway--fucking rewrites are impossible with ADD and laziness combined. You're really bringing a 6-month-old baby to Coachella though?

    Is dexadrine a weight loss drug? Lord knows I don't need to lose any weight (just fat maybe).

    Dexadrine is dextro-amphetamine, most commonly prescribed for narcolepsy, less so for ADD, and I believe prescribing it for weight loss would be considered practically illegal nowadays since they're really paying attention to the prescription of forms of amphetamine. Nothingman might know a little more about the history of it than I, but I believe it was developed after the Benzedrine epidemic in the 50s and 60s when Benz (another amphetamine analog) was prescribed for just about anything, including weight loss.

    Interesting. My mother once told me she was prescribed "weight loss medicine" when she was pregnant with me. I wonder if it was Benzedrine, and I wonder if that explains why I'm so fucked in the head.

    thelastgreatman is correct. I think it was actually a part of the bennies phase, though it wasn't as popular and not near as readily available. My roommate in college was prescribed 15MG dexedrine caps and I spent many an all-nighter with the help of Dex. Apparently, the U.S. Military uses Dexedrine to combat fatigue. For awhile, there was an ADD drug-chain (think food chain) where ritalin was at the bottom and dexedrine was at the top. Adderall is just a slight step down from dex, but a significant step. It's the best. I mean, it truly amps you up. We used to call them "study pills" and we'd get a month of homework done in 2-3 days. Maybe that's a little exaggerated, but not much.

    Dexatrim is the weight loss pill. That often causes confusion when mentioning Dexedrine. I just checked Wikipedia and they say that it is prescribed to obese people for purposes of weight loss but I can't see many doctors prescribing pharmaceutical speed for weight loss... I mean, the 15mg caplets (I want to say they were time released) were potent as all hell.

    I find dexadrine to be smoother with less jaw tension involved but it's hard to get a prescription for an equivalent amount of speediness and focus compared to Adderall. Technically Adderall is dextro too but instead of pure dextro-amphetamine it's a combination of dextro-amphetamine salts. My understanding of what the fuck the difference is is limited to the following: salts appear to be a bit tweaker in feeling, but on the other hand they taste like candy when dripping down your throat. My old psych was great, he trusted my judgment completely and would basically prescribe whatever I thought was best for me (had to explain myself of course) and so I switched back and forth between them both.

    Oh, in 1962 they most definitely prescribed it (or similar stimulants) for weight loss. Today... Not so likely.
