A Shitty Description of Gorillaz Albums

Self Titled: Stoner music. The smell of weed clinging to everything that you own. Jamming with your friends in your parent’s garage. Bloody noses. Bruised knuckles. Shitty arcade games from the eighties.

D Sides: Black light. Shitty bowling alleys in the middle of nowhere. Having fizzy drinks come out of your nose. Broken glass. Molotov cocktails. Fluorescent lights. Fading highway lines that stretch on forever. Knock off raybans.

Demon Days: Edgy. Drawing on your sneakers with sharpie. Chain smoking. Old zombie movies. Dance music tinged with murder. Being suicidal but seeing the beauty in living.

Plastic Beach: Being shipped to summer camp. Sunlight burning you to a crisp. Old tubes of paint. Music playing far away in the distance. Sand beneath your toes. Sun burn.

The Fall: Mid November. Being stuck in a hotel room in a city that you’ve never been to. Smoking on curbs. Crying but you don’t know why. Pills making your mind go blurry. Feeling numb all the time.

Humanz: Vibrant. Mid July. Drugs, but quality drugs that make you fuzzy for hours. Fancy bar cocktails. Hickeys. Waking up in a stranger’s bed. The scratchy sound that old records make. A TV just buzzing with white noise. Knowing all the lyrics to songs that you’ve never heard. Lipstick. Tights.

Context:  Someone in my party had to go home, but the rest of us wanted to continue.  We gave our DM some time to formulate a short adventure where we have one-use characters who are level 20 when a Tarrasque attacks the town.

Eris: I make a molotov cocktail and throw it at the beast’s eyes!

DM: Okay roll for – hang on

[we all pause for a moment while the DM double checks his monster book]

DM, clearly not sorry: Oh!  I’m sorry!  It’s immune to fire!

Paris police officers set on fire by Molotov cocktail after May Day protest turns violent

  • May Day protests took a violent turn in Paris on Monday, leaving both citizens and officers injured.
  • Tension in France was already at an all-time high before the annual trade union demonstration got underway, thanks to a particularly tumultuous presidential election that has deeply divided the nation.
  • Many of the protesters who took to the streets Monday were reportedly there to show their distaste for both far-right candidate Marine Le Pen and centrist Emmanuel Macron.
  • At the protest, the Independent reported, police deployed both water cannons and tear gas against demonstrators before they fought back with Molotov cocktails, resulting in several officers being engulfed in flames. Read more (5/1/17)

The simplest sort of petrol bomb is just a bottle full of fuel with a rag or paper for a wick. You light it and throw it, the bottle breaks, the splash of fuel bursts into a fireball, and then the rest of the fuel burns, possibly catching other stuff on fire. This most basic design is incredibly cheap and easy to make, and so has been very popular with protestors and guerillas for generations.

Using a wick that has been soaked in alcohol instead of fuel oil or petrol has the advantage of not leaving a conspicuous trail of smoke back to your position, which may be helpful to someone throwing the device from a place of concealment. By the same token, in daylight it can be hard to tell if an alcohol wick is actually lit, since the flame is nearly colorless.

Plugging the wick into place with a wine cork or similar stopper ensures that the wick doesnt fall out, minimizes spilling of fuel as the device travels through the air, and seems to give a more dramatic splash/fireball on impact.

Making the fuel thicker keeps the fireball and subsequent flame more concentrated (because the fuel doesnt spread out as much) and consequently hotter. Motor oil, detergent such as fairy liquid, or molasses have all been used for this purpose.

Suspending bits of flammable metal, such as magnesium or aluminum shavings or powder, in the fuel can also allow much higher temperatures to be reached.

May Day protesters apparently threw cans of Pepsi at police officers in Portland

  • Tucked inside a report from the Oregonian on May Day protests in Portland, Oregon, is a small nugget about how rally attendees allegedly hurled Pepsi cans at police — which was, you know, a reference to that horrible ad the soda company released last month.
  • The ad in question features reality TV star and model Kendall Jenner attending a “Black Lives Matter”-esque rally, where she hands one of the police officers clashing with protesters a Pepsi to diffuse the tension. 
  • The example of life imitating art imitating life came during the same violent clashes with police that saw at least 25 people arrested, the Oregonian reported. In addition to the Pepsi cans, protesters also hurled Molotov cocktails, prompting authorities to quickly classify the gathering a riot. Read more (5/2/17)

A man, declaring he would burn passengers to death, set off a firebomb on a crowded MTR train during Hong Kong’s evening rush hour on Friday, injuring at least 18 people and spreading chaos among panic-stricken commuters.

The suspect said “burn you to death” before he drew the bottle and lit it, a police source said.

A 60-year-old man, Cheung Kam-Fai, was arrested in connection with the incident. He claimed to have started the fire for “personal reasons”.
