Parents: THE Antidrug

Ok, first...sorry for the lack of posts. My life is boring, the weather is nice, and I've been busy signing a lease for a 2000 square foot duplex apartment in the east village with a huge private backyard. I'm not kidding, its that big. There will be many, many bbq's the summer. Here's info about my new building. Its on the corner of sixth street and 3rd ave./Bowery. Its on the site of the Fillmore East. This means yours truly is now part of the much maligned Bowery corridor gentrification. I hate to be a dick, but does anyone really doubt that if Woody Guthrie were alive today, he would shop at Whole Foods ? Wait, that's all wrong....I'm sorry Woody. This land is your land this land is my land, from the humvie dealership to the tanning salon.

Moving on, I was just checking out the site during class and one of those 5 second window-filling ads came up. This one was sponsored by Parents: THE Antidrug, the federal government's pathetic homage to the "this is your brain on drugs" campaign of our youth. Anyway, this ad on had the words "skunk" "schwag" and "kindbud" flashing on a green screen followed by the message, "ever wonder what your kids are talking about?" Anyway, the whole thing is takes place on a background of what I'm assuming is supposed to be weed. But the thing is, it wasn't even close to looking like the real thing. Really, I laughed out loud. I think they spray painted some thyme. I tried to find a link to it, but haven't had any luck. I'm going to post a picture of the real thing lest any youngster or parent get confused.
