The @aquariumdrunkard post about Pump Up the Volume reminded me that I had this gum (mentioned around 3:35 of the linked clip). I’ve seen this movie about 872 times. It’s where I learned about the delicious licorice-flavored BlackJack gum, and it where I learned about Leonard Cohen and about the really cool slow version of Wave of Mutilation. Go check out the post on Aquarium Drunkard, then go buy the gum, then watch the movie. It’s a great teen flick (adults are stupid and don’t get us) with a killer soundtrack.
I got my wild cherry diet Pepsi and I got my Black Jack gum here and I got that feeling. Mmm that familiar feeling that something rank is going down up there. Yeah, I can smell it. I can almost taste it. The rankness in the air. It’s everywhere. It’s running through that old pipeline out there, trickling along the dumb concrete river and coming up the drains of those lovely track homes we all live in.
