BK Lounge-mobile

I feel like I should be crammed in the back, while my BK Lounge coworkers, a crazy girl from a fucked up family* and her gay brother/cousin/gardener**, drive me around Westwood looking for some dude on a corner that might sell us them weed. Karma:  No, she will not fuck you under any circumstance.***  Neither […]

The Micah/Exxon Nightmare Burger

Black Ram Whopper
There may also be a ram joke in there somewhere. 

The original BK Lounge version wasn’t black from squid ink or bamboo charcoal.  Just don’t even ask.

And why not? 455 is a win.  Vinyl buckets – get the ladies and hose off the seats as needed. Wheels for your nerd friends to “boycott” the prom. Shit like that.

So, just like that, the evidence is wiped from the face of the earth. Thank god.  No more: Read More

Cereal City Blues

It’s Fall 1983. If you had bothered to attend class, this should have been the start of your junior year in college. Instead, it’s your first semester back: back in school (but it’s at a community college) back home, after a year of unspeakable horrors in the Phi Sigma Kappa house. The BK Lounge is […]
