57. Might chemically labotomise . . .

IN COMFORTABLE silence we sat for the first few puffs before John mused, "Not long to go now."


"Mmm," I answered, enjoying the hazy blanket descending from the outside in.

A pause. "Are you sure you want to go through with this?"

"Yeah man, I have too."

"But you know, you are, well, kind of useless right?"

I wasn't offended. John's words were voiced with affection and a fair amount of prior experience.

"I like to think of myself as endearingly useless bro."

"That's still useless. Do you really think you can pull this off?"

"No, not really.”

The spliff savoured. Passed back.

“But it’s sure going to be a trip finding out."

John leaned back, looked up and laughed. "Well I guess it's good that you've stopped this straight edge bollocks then. You know, before it felt as if you hung out with us because you had too. Now it feels like you want too."

John still thought my travels might chemically lobotomise; but at least now I should have some fun along the way.

SO OKAY, I wasn't some electronic prophet destined to lead a straight edge revolution. People of all ages weren't going to flood the dance scene for the good of their health due to my example.

I was an ageing hedonist heading for one final blowout and all things were back on the table. I had no idea what the next few months held, what they would mean. I hoped meaning would be found. I was searching for secrets and mysteries and magic - for an end worthy of the name. And I was scared shitless. And it was going to be great . . . I hoped.

Hey @AdamMadd

Yeah that's the first third of the story done, so was thinking of stopping there. Not sure what readership I've got but if enough Ozclubbers protested I could be persuaded to continue on ;)

Thanks for the support guys!

Part 2 will begin in a few weeks after I settle into my new job. 

I guess it is a *gasp* mid-season break . . .

      While the toxicology report containing the specific details of Lil Peep’s death has yet to arrive, police in Tucson, Arizona have reportedly received information regarding the potential presence of fentanyl in the drugs ingested by Lil Peep prior to his death.
      A potent synthetic opioid, fentanyl is 50 to 100 times more powerful than morphine, leading to an increased risk of overdose for users of drugs cut with the opioid. Fentanyl additionally augments the addictive quality of addictive substances, further increasing the chance for drug addiction and related overdoses. Fentanyl has appeared as a substance used to cut drugs on the black market, despite its toxicity — an amount of fentanyl the size of a mere grain of salt can materialize as a lethal dose. Fentanyl overdose victims are generally unaware that the drugs that they take are laced with fentanyl at the time of consumption.
      Lil Peep’s brother, Karl Ahr, stated earlier this month that the family had been informed by an unspecified source that fentanyl laced drugs could have played a part in the rapper’s death. “We have heard there was some sort of substance he did not expect to be involved in the substance he was taking,” Ahr said. “He [Lil Peep] thought he could take what he did, but he had been given something and he didn’t realize what it was.” Ahr believes Lil Peep’s death to have been a tragic accident.
      The artist’s death was determined to be a drug overdose by the local medical examiner’s office. Lil Peep’s toxicology report will be able to identify whether fentanyl was indeed involved in the overdose. Toxicology reports generally become available from a six to eight-week period.

      Dance music’s resident funnyman Dillon Francis has just dropped the official video for his new single ‘Hello There’ — and we think he might have finally outdone himself on this one.
      The LA producer plays every character in the vid, which is a glorious piss take of cheesy, US talk show culture. It was directed by comedy crew The Dads, who you might know from a bunch of Funny or Die videos.
      Read More You need to watch Dillon Francis furiously recapping The Bachelor   “The video for ‘Hello There’ is my favourite thus far in my career,” said Francis. “Working with The Dads was almost as insane as playing all the different characters in the video.”
      It might be the best performance from Francis since he played a speed-dealer wearing, spiked-hair rocking, party-crashing DJ for hire in his 2016 vid for ‘Need You’. Get your eyes around it below.
      ‘Hello There’ is the second release from Francis this year, with his G-Eazy collaboration ‘Say Less‘ dropping back in April.

      A strange YouTube video could have something to do with the recent success of Post Malone‘s #1 hit song “Rockstar” featuring 21 Savage…
      The official upload by Malone’s label Republic Records features the song’s chorus on a loop for 3:38 straight — and it flows so well that listeners might not even notice it’s not the actual track. This is perhaps a ploy to grab people’s attention immediately with the catchiest part of “Rockstar,” and the play count seems to agree.
      The looped clip, which links to the full version on all streaming platforms, already has over 44 million views and counting. That makes for an average of more than a million views per day, and could very well have something to do with “Rockstar” reaching #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Much like a remix counts toward a song’s success on the charts, this looped video could be racking up critical plays for the rapper.
      Check out the video in question below and follow along with the lyrics… By the end of the loop you’ll have the chorus down, no problem.
      I’ve been fuckin’ hoes and poppin’ pillies
      Man, I feel just like a rockstar (star)
      Ayy, ayy, all my brothers got that gas
      And they always be smokin’ like a Rasta
      Fuckin’ with me, call up on a Uzi
      And show up, man them the shottas
      When my homies pull up on your block
      They make that thing go grrra-ta-ta-ta (pow, pow, pow)
