Treasure of the Cisne Episode 5: The Chase of the Cisne

So here is the latest in the Cisne Tubisodes. For those of you having a bit of trouble following the complicated web of characters, I thought I would offer up a quick recap of what has happened so far. 2 thieves, Alowishus and Herman (played by Nick Krill and Thomas Hughes) break into a house and steal a package from hot shot mobster Boss Tweed (Joe Hobson). The thieves then try to deliver the package to their employer, Franco Prussian (Jon Eaton). Before the package is delivered, the thieves become curious what is inside. They find a suit, but while goofin'- they rip the suit and a treasure map falls out. Realizing the potential value of the map, the thieves keep it and sew the suit back up and deliver it to Franco.

Meanwhile, police detective Timothy Horton (Sam Hughes) has a hunch that Tweed is hiding something from him and is gathering information to reveal his secret(s). Tweed, too, is enlisting the help of a renegade henchman, Antony Keidis (Jeff Hobson) to prevent Horton from figuring out too much...But where does Keidis' loyalty really lie?

Oh boyeeee it's been a long time since I've decided to actually review a freaking soda in here and what comes to those who wait? Vault fucking Red fucking Blitz. Yeah, it's pretty much the soda equivalent of Alfonso Ribeiro but as many producers have said about Alfonso, "It'll have to do."

So the story begins early this morning at about 1:00 AM in whothefuckknows, TX which might as well have been the hometown of this guy. In fact, I think that Grandpa was the cashier at the gas station where I saw the Red Blitz for the first time. Either way, I was surprised to see this new flavor of Vault which apparently just launched on March 1st. In a way I shouldn't be surprised because the original Vault was a direct rip-off of Mountain Dew and so this new "Vault injected with a Berry Blast" is a direct rip-off of Mountain Dew: Code Red. Now I acknowledge that this happens all the time, Pepsi Vanilla ripped off Vanilla Coke, Coke Blak ripped off Pepsi Kona, etc. but if Vault releases an orange and grape flavored Vault to match Mountain Dew Livewire + Pitch Black, then a foul really should be called.

In terms of the actual beverage, I actually like it better than the original outing from Vault. It is very red, I think red enough to be scientifically dubbed "a blitz" which is a good thing. It has the same overall flavor as Vault with a hint of some kind of dubious berry infused with it to make a palatable enough taste. Again, I was never in love with the original Vault and I think I might have enjoyed it simply because I was tired and the promise of caffeine and energy ensured me that I wouldn't fall asleep at the wheel, but this isn't much better. At least it'll give Coke an excuse to release a bunch of ridiculous flavors to combat the large hold that Mountain Dew has on the Cool Boy Citrus Soda market...

The Spinto Band Natural Disaster Tour

In the past few weeks of traveling we have survived the likes of snowstorms, icy roads and heavy winds. It seems as though in addition to Dios Malos and The Changes, The Goddamned Snow is also supporting us on this tour. As we move to the west coast, we figured the worst was over. We were dead wrong. Famed meteorologist Glen "Hurricane" Schwartz happens to be a close friend of the Spinto Band and gave us a few "insider tips". Here's a look at the forecast:

San Francisco, CA

Los Angeles, CA

Phoenix, AZ

Austin, TX

Springfield, MO

Nashville, TN
