HOW TO ENTER TO WIN
To enter, simply hit the like button for this blog’s Facebook page, below.

Then leave a comment simply stating Pike and your Facebook username, for instance, I would comment, Pike Emma Moon. I do think that this is fairly simple but people aren’t fond of my commenting system so this giveaway will be going on for the next two weeks, until November 13, 2012 at 7PM ET. It is only open to US residents.

WHAT IS THIRST?

Happy Halloween! Okay, technically Halloween’s tomorrow but I’m starting this giveaway today dagnabbit! Plus with Hurricane Sandy, Frankentstorm, or whatever the fuck you want to call it, I feel like we’ve lost Halloween day. It feels like Christmas already. Ah, global warming.

Anyway, I was a huge fan of Christopher Pike as a pre-teen. I devoured all of his books. My absolutely favorites that I continued to re-read over the years are his installments of the ongoing adventures of the vampire Sita/Alisa, The Last Vampire series. Sita is both bloodthirsty and loving. A few years ago the original books were compiled and re-released with new covers as the Thirst series, no doubt to capitalize on the vampire craze that’s been going on for a while.

Then something truly magical happened, in 2010 a full 16 years after the release of the first book we were treated to a new Sita adventure. Since then there has been yet another new book and the next is being released in 2013.

While shopping not long ago I was able to pick up extra copies of a couple of the books at a great price. These are brand new and unread. However there is price sticker residue left on the back covers of both books and a bit on the front on one because I couldn’t completely remove it. There is also a Sharpie smudge on the edge of Thirst No. 3. These books are not returnable to any store. They are to be enjoyed.

WHERE DO THESE BOOKS FIT INTO THE SERIES?
I am giving away Thirst No. 2, which is a compilation of the original books from 1996, 4. Phantom, 5. Evil Thirst and 6. Creatures of Forever. Plus the winner will receive Thirst No. 3, The Eternal Dawn. Thirst No. 3 can also be considered book 7 in the series. It was the first new book, which was released in 2010. For more on specific plots, check out the series’ Wikipedia page.

The first time I heard Pittsburgh Slim was back in 07 when his huge single Girls Kiss Girls dropped. It was amazing. Not only was the song fun and danceable but relateable as well. All of my friends had done it. (You ladies can act “adult” now but I regret nothing). A radio DJ did mention that he was from Pittsburgh but I didn’t pay much heed. I was in super party mode back then. On a random visit to a Target I saw his album Tastemaker. I was so jazzed. I bought that sucker in a minute. I proceeded to turn everyone I knew into a Slim fan whether they were aware of it or not (I was fond of making mix CDs/playlists for parties and I always would shove a couple of his tracks in). You don’t even know how much I love that album.

easy on the eyes as well

Since then time Pittsburgh Slim has additionally went by the moniker Slimmie Hendrix. He’s put out various mixtapes/LPs, Downtown Wednesday Night, Nolita Nights and Steezington Ave. (yes, go find and download them!). His 2009 single My Bitch is Crazy is also fantastic.

Now he is back in the Burgh and has a new mixtape, Pittsburgh Slim’s Excellent Adventure. So I nerdily contacted him and wound up with this kick ass interview with the legendary Pittsburgh Slim.

Sloppy Seconds: The Tucker Max Leftovers
by Tucker Max
published by Blue Heeler Books
released on February 5, 2012

Recently humor author Tucker Max made some big announcements, that he was releasing two new books on the same day and that afterward he would no longer be writing funny, frat style books. It wasn’t until the release day of his new books, Hilarity Ensues and Sloppy Seconds: The Tucker Max Leftovers, that he made another announcement, the latter book is free.

That’s right, the e-book version of Max’s last book of debauched stories is free…forever. He put it out for free as a gift to his fans. He could have easily sold it for a discounted price and still made a ton of money so this is pretty great of him. Sloppy Seconds consists of stories that didn’t make it into his other books plus a few stories from those books. So checking it out is a great way to find out if you dig Max’s voice and want to plunk down the dough for the other books as well.

I’m a fan of Tucker’s work but he’s definitely not for everyone. If you’ve also had those, “oh my god, I was so trashed, what did I do last night?” mornings then you’ll probably relate a bit. Max is a self described asshole who doesn’t shy away from insulting anyone.

Types of people in this book who he makes fun of include but aren’t limited to the following:
overweight women (a lot, so yeah, be prepared)
dog people
dumb jocks
people who sext
the homeless
Indians
midgets

Overall I really enjoyed the book. It cracked me up consistently. Now I’ll share some of my favorite parts so you can get a feel for it.

Tucker mistakes a man for a woman and exclaims over his hotness.

“I will not apologize for being awesome.”
When a girl won’t tell him what her shirt means he decides to fuck her and then steal the shirt. He does so and then another woman calls him on wearing a tiny shirt.

“Because I have a bullhorn and you do not! Your fancy book learnin’ should’ve taught you that the strong do what they want, and the weak endure what they must. Now bring me your finest meats and cheeses, and be quick about it!”
The bull horn story really kills me for some reason. It’s just about Tucker buying a super loud bull horn and insulting people during an overnight line to buy tickets to a sporting event in college.

“Sexting is fucking stupid: it’s only appropriate for repressed teenagers or attention-starved cockteases, not for grown adults who have actual sex with other adults.” (my thoughts exactly)
When Max’s book I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell was made into a movie he put his actual number in the movie. Then a ton of girls tried to sext with him. So he would reply to their dirty texts with ridiculous, gross messages. He also sends someone a picture of Levar Burton instead of himself. When she complains that it isn’t him since he isn’t black he calls her a racist. He sends all sorts of other messages as well including calling chicks on their shitty grammar and telling them his penis is small.

He gets into a fight at a nighttime Harry Potter release.

He refers to an “All You Can Drink” night at a bar as “both A Reason To Live and A Potential Way To Die”, so true.

He talks about how pompous and jerky that doctors can be.

He live tweets a blowjob.

Plus there are a ton of other great stories. I definitely recommend getting this e-book for free right now. You can get it from Amazon here or as an iTunes e-book here.

I recently found out about hip hop artist Tha Mic. He’s a rapper from Winnipeg, Canada. Tha Mic has been producing music since age 19. Plus he’s worked with many notable artists including Bad Azz of Snoop Dogg’s DPG and Hussein Fatal of 2pac’s Outlaws.

His current album, Exposed, can be downloaded for free (how awesome is that?) by visiting his site, ThaMicMusic.ca. The album includes 11 fly tracks, listed below. They would be great to throw on for a party or just when hanging out.

1. 9 2 5
2. Doin’ Good featuring Sigma D
3. Plastic Balla featuring Kid P
4. Smoke
5. Money Schemes
6. Golden featuring Originate
7. Sunshine featuring Aye Michelle
8. Wen It Goes featuring Kid P
9. How Much Time I Got Left
10. I Try featuring Chellz
11. Keep Shining

My personal favorite tracks are Plastic Balla, Smoke and Sunshine. Sunshine is the kind of song that would go well in a one of those summertime mixes when you are chillin’ by the pool. It’s obvious that he works hard on both the beats and lyrics to get every song just right.

I definitely recommend that you go download Tha Mic’s album Exposed. Plus he also has some other tracks for sale that you should check out such as Blunt Smoke.
