ok dear reader, i’ve been given a job to do and i have mixed feelings, often, no scratch that, most days, i head off to work to do my secret job with some hesitation, reservation and consternation. it’s not that bad really, but retired with a shit load of money is surely much better.
so what’s the job i’ve been given now, well, here it comes, it’s my first real review, other than the other silly and somewhat crappy reviews of modern life you’ll find on tbaoo. this one is of an actual real product and it’s subject matter has brought on my mixed feelings.
note to law enforcement and drug cartels, i do not pretend to know anything about your actions or even understand them. shit you’re both involved in the law, drugs, money, corruption, death, fraud, intimidation, kidnapping … it’s just that one of you are lot more successful.
say no to drugs, thanks nancy. i don’t – did some as a younger buck and it helped to get bucked if you know what i mean, but i can’t suggest, condone, sell, or give anyone the idea that this review endorses the activities of this american cult figure ( and his friends ) who without knowing, has asked me to review his new spoken word, ( with great sound bites and deep funky grooves ) audiobook called tall tales.
mickey munday is an american sub culture hero, not my tag, but it seems that smuggling gazillions of dollars worth of gazillions of dollars and helping to facilitate america’s entire cocaine supply allowed mickey to make his own share of a gazillion dollars, loads of really cool toys, which got him laid by the best. it also ensured he was invited to the best parties and joined america’s ever so fickle celebrity list.
3 time grammy award winner carlos alvarez has handled the knobs and produced this deep pool of truths from a very clever and very devious man. being an australian who seems to have watched every film, documentary, and television show ever made, has never and i repeat never listened to an audio book, until today, well at least the two samples i’ve been given. my record still stands i suppose, but no dear reader i’m going to have to get more, listen to the whole damn recording of tall tales - you can buy it here.
but here’s the butt, i’m torn between asking the moral questions and appreciating the sheer genius of this devilishly cunning man. what do i think of the smuggling of america’s supply of cocaine into america and returning cocaine soaked cash ( this was explained in one of the samples ) to the bosses who had more money than that supernatural being some folk believe in, omg, i’m torn.
remember that people were killed, tortured, bribed, threatened, all in the name of supplying this illegal product to the world. if you’ve ever read my tbaoo manifest ( found here ) you’d know that i really have no problem with the drugs, it’s the organised butchery behind it that bothered me then and now.
does this stop me from enjoying this man’s americanisms no. does it mean that i’ll have to track down the documentary cocaine cowboys ( see second video below ) yes and does it mean that i’m going to see the major motion picture based upon cocaine cowboys that is reportedly going to star that nice young man leonardo dicaprio .. well yes. the first video is a sample of this man’s style, i forgot, it looks like he has a clothing line as well. please google mickey munday, cocaine cowboys, peter berg and the new film. an older film of a similar miami drug importer history feel and one that i did enjoy was blow … well worth a look.
tall tales – mickey munday, is one mother fucking parachute ride from a coke stained plane. the stories are real, the honest delivery of his dishonest role in arguably america’s most successful criminal activity and the astronomical amounts of money involved have to be heard, hear it now. even if you have to get a copy from your dealer
so that’s it, my first review. if interested parties take umbrage to my outpourings, i’m sorry and i’ll never do it again, thank you – good night and i’ll be going now.
