Detox is for quitters... and what's wrong with short posts?
Oops, sorry. That was another thread.

as artemis noted, one of the absinthe forum's most venerable members, absinthedrinker (Ian), is featured in the FROM HELL absinthe documentary.

Gaston, the From Hell absinthe featurette is actually a relatively accurate and well done piece of work (Just ignore the Sebor's bone-head.) Watch it yourself, your girlfriend's interpretation seems a little off.
Artemis, detox is overrated, please stick around.

I admire those who can break the Fee Verte forum addiction cold turkey, but for me it's always been a three-step process:
1. Stop posting
2. Stop reading
3. Stop caring about it at all
I've never made it past 2-1/2.
So I read a post that completely misrepresents that DVD, which features one of our own forum members making possibly the most accurate absinthe commentary that's ever made it onto any type of screen at any time in history.
I can let it slide, hoping somebody else does the right thing and points out the truth, or I can hobble out of bed, my ass showing out my hospital gown, and risk the approbation of the forum's closet nannies by toasting another newbie who wandered in here talking with his mouth full (of Vera's clown cereal). It was a difficult decision, but somebody had to make it.
As for the photo, that's me on the right. Same picture that's on my driver's license.

Check out Artemis' profile photo, it's great! It took a second to register...

"who I can thank for this asinine commentary/propaganda"
Your girlfriend. She's the only one who made any asinine commentary. For a reality-based view of the DVD, see the (numerous) posts on it in the archives of this forum.

Has anyone seen the "History of Absinthe" that is a special feature on the "From Hell" DVD? I saw the film, but since I don't have a DVD player, I have not seen this featurette. My girlfriend saw it and said that whoever was discussing La Fee Verte said that it causes eplileptic fits etc etc. (YAAAAWWWWNNN...) Naturally, she became even more concerned about my absinthing...("But honey, it's only 70% alcohol! And besides, it's sold by Spaniards--a noble and trustworthy people, to be sure...")I'm just wondering if anyone else has seen this and who I can thank for this asinine commentary/propaganda...the only fits I seem to suffer are the ones that come with empry bottles in the morning...
