The Washington Post- A substance used to tranquilize elephants that is 100 times more potent than the drug that killed Prince is hitting the Washington suburbs, adding the region to a growing list of communities nationwide reporting fatal overdoses linked to the exotic and toxic sedative. Three cases out of Anne Arundel and Frederick counties this month mark the first carfentanil-related fatalities in Maryland, alarming local health and law enforcement officials already in a state of emergency combating the opioid crisis. On Monday, a Virginia man pleaded guilty in a drug distribution case after selling $100 of carfentanil-laced heroin to a 21-year-old found dead by her mother on the bathroom floor of their Fairfax County home. In recent weeks, police departments across the country announced carfentanil-related fatalities, including cases in Illinois, Colorado, Wisconsin and Minnesota. Law enforcement officials fear the growing lethal overdoses tied to the synthetic opioid marks a new normal in the nation’s heroin epidemic. “We have never seen death like we do now,” said Tom Synan, head of Hamilton County Heroin Coalition in Ohio, which was among the first spots to discover a string of carfentanil deaths during a week in which the county’s overdoses more than doubled.
Gotta love the the opiate options out there these days. You think parents back then were screaming for arrest and trying to protect their kids from the crazy devil rap music talking about smoking weed, well buck up, Mothers out there. Weed is going to be legal soon enough nationwide and you gotta now protect your kids from using elephant tranquilizer used to sedate a 3 ton animal behemoth. I gotta say, there’s some level of amazement out there. I mean when we live in a world where people take Oxycontin, Cocaine, Crack, LSD, Ketamine, Vicodin, Morphine, Methadone, Heroin, Percocets, MDMA, Crystal meth, GHB, Psilocybin mushrooms, Salvia, DMT, PCP, Barbiturates, Xanax, Valium, Rohypnol, Synthetic weed, Alcohol, and Weed in general, druggies will always find another way to get high. Case and point, someone thought all of these very well known party drugs, downers, and uppers, thought it would be a good idea to take a syringe full of Carfentanil used to tranq elephants and rhinos and decided to use it to get fucked up. Put nothing past drug addicts and their method of getting high. Wouldn’t even be surprised if they straight up told a zoo keeper to shoot em straight in the jugular.
Source- After news of the Blood Rave in Amsterdam swept across social media a few weeks ago, news of an identically inclined blood rave will take place during New York’s Comic Con, featuring electronic music pioneers The Crystal Method as headliners, as well as featuring Pictureplane, The Dance Cartel, A Place Both Wonderful And Strange, and DJ Choyce Hacks. The party will also include sword fighting, cosplay actors, a chill-out room based on the hyper-modern apartment of Blade villain Deacon Frost, and several secret guests. Since this is America, fake blood will be used – a proprietary combination that Thump was able to try out first hand last Friday at a press preview. The party is being put on by BBQ Films, who specialize in “transforming iconic movie scenes into immersive parties.” They’ve recreated the going-out-of-business party from Empire Records, and this latest venture is sure to match expectations. If you’d like to attend, tickets are available here. Blade Rave will take place on October 9, 2015 at New York’s Terminal 5. THUMP readers get reduced-cost tickets with the discount code “IMMERSIVECINEMA”.
So i guess this is gonna become an on going thing now? Blood Raves are whats hot for 2015 and beyond. Before we start popping molly with fake blood pouring down our faces lets just clear the air for a second. The Amsterdam Blood Rave should be the only Blood Rave worth going to. After i blogged it i guess Blood Raves just took off (only 2 so far and i probably was inconsequential but whatever). That ones on Halloween which just makes it that much more special and acceptable. If you just get doused in blood on a random Fall Friday then you’re gonna look like a weird person. Trying to take the subway in that and people are gonna look at you like you’re some freak who looks like a giant tampon. And as much as i hate to say it, The Netherlands is a much better place to have something like this where they dont have the restraints of American Safety laws. I mean fake blood? thats not how Deacon Frost rolls. I know it sounds crazy but i need them to at least attempt to get real blood. Yea if you have to spill pigs or something but you got to at least try to get the real deal like the Netherlands rave.
Also knowing this is some sort of business set up by a company that does these things, making scenes in real life kind of takes some fun out of it. The other rave was just about a rave inspired by Blade. This one Is like trying to re make scenes and all that nonsense. If im there im there about the Blood Rave itself and not because its a business that recreates iconic scenes from movies. If i wanted to be apart of some weird fake blood fueled life imitating art thing thats one thing but this should be about another thing entirely. its about taking drugs and having chicks and guys getting super horny about the fact that blood is gonna rain down on them and there might be a little pain/ sex/drugs involved. Something tells me there’s gonna be an asshole telling you you can’t have sex in Deacon’s swanky New York apartment in this version of a blood rave and that’s just not right. If I’m on drugs humping and grinding all night to EDM music getting blood, real or fake, sprayed on me I’m gonna want to have sex with the closest piece of ass that will let me. That’s just how vampires do it.
Sidenote- I dont know a thing about Crystal Method aside that they have one song on Need For Speed Underground but in my head they would be whats playing at a blood rave.
