I have to say, if there is one thing junkies like almost as much as shooting up, it's making 60-second youtube videos about heroin using puppets. I am waiting for Junky and Cain's Book next. Of course, they will need to be made into big-budget movies first, since today's young technically-minded junkies can't be bothered to read, apparently.

The puppets should have all been double-headed dildos with faces drawn on.

It wasn't as good as I'd hoped, but it also didn't make me want to shower immediately like the actual movie did, so...

I liked that one of them was a banana.

Also whenever I see the Requiem fast-cut dope-doing I'm always bothered by the mistake they made having the pupils dilate, because with opiates it's the other way around. Not that I know anything about that,,,

Fails HARD without puppet ass-to-ass.

I am deeply, deeply ashamed of myself, but I was thinking exactly this.

Yeah, I was waiting for that too. They did have the guy chanting "tail to tail" though.

Can't tell if serious, KokuRyu... I'm going with brilliantly sarcastic.
