Marilyn Manson + Absinthe = Mansinthe

That's right Marilyn Mason has his own brand of absinthe called Mansinthe. For anyone who read that Spin article by Jonathan Ames, this shouldn't come as a surprise. Dude got tanked.

Evan Rachel Wood sampled it.

For my [20th] birthday, I did one shot to try it, and that was it," she said. "I was drunk immediately. Being who he is, Manson wanted to make it as strong as it could possibly be, so it’s got the highest amount of wormwood that you can have legally. One shot of it, and you’re out for the night. Three shots of it, you’re dead.”

She added, "I think he agrees with me; you can't drink Mansinthe every day."

I'm not touching the last part of that quote. Just bad.

Also of note, she calls her much older boyfriend 'Manson.' Creepy on more than one level.

Marilyn or Mary may be worse.

Reportedly critics who've tried Mansinthe compared its odor to "sewage water" and "swamp mud." And the taste has been described as being "as bad as cat piss."[Side-Line] Although I figure absinthe doesn't generally taste good.

I don't know if it means anything, but Mansinthe did win the Gold medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in April.

You can buy it here for about $55 per bottle.

Absinthe became semi-legal again in the U.S. mid-2007, meaning it's legal "as long as manufacturers can prove that thujone levels--the stuff that may or may not make people hallucinate (i.e. the good part)-- are almost undetectable." [SFGate]

It was originally outlawed in 1912.

Stateside, I'm not sure if Mansinthe will ever be available for purchase. Does anyone know?

, Is Muscle Maximizer a sham or does it sincerely work.
Except this is exactly what does happen, frequently in badly considered build muscle strategies.
