Don't get High

13 years ago

Yeah, I've been working on a story called Don't get High, so far it's a slow job, what I really need is inspiration. Like, there are gonna be places to go where you can get high, parties, concerts, stuff like that. It's gonna be more like Don't get CAUGHT High.

I'll accept any suggestions for things to put in, jokes, bands, things high people do, ANYTHING.

Here's what high people do: die a slow, painful, horrible death in the gutter of society, eventually dying before they can reach a hospital before their previously-neglegent family weeps in guilt and sorrow. :D

Okay there are some people who actually have talent, like Rise Against or Ted Nugent, but there are also the vast majority of Vanilla Ice, Miley Cyrus and the like.

...other ideas?

Not really, no. Actually, not at all, except in the form of; "We don't do it."

They're topics of import are usually either political, animal-rights, or environmental. But they do a lot of topics, essentially none on drugs.

Oh and you know, I can only think of ONE band that was good doing heroin (so many good bands do that one) BUT ALSO good after they go clean.

99% of bands that are all into heroin, and then go clean, end up sucking shit. The Chili Peppers though, they're still fucking pro, after going clean.

I wasn't thinking getting "high" referred only to heroin. Nearly any creative influence seems to have, at many points in their career, been high with alcohol or different drugs, and when they get clean, they tend to suck.

However, I would by no means say that getting high in any way helps the creative process or is the cause of the creative process; I think, rather, that people who are very creative tend to have brains that lead in a certain direction, and unfortunately, that direction tends to be drugs and alcohol.

Here are some examples:

Johnny Cash, Ernest Hemingway, Trent Reznor (note that last few albums after not drinking/drugging), Kurt Cobain.

I love Bill Hicks.

Looks like your game sparked a...discussion about drugs and bands, AIDS. I would say good luck to you for your project, but I don't want to.
