Chance is the chancellor of energy drinks at Studio City parkinglot. He's probably in his chancellary, mulling over the latest energy drink released this week as you read this. FM: I know you get a bunch of energy drinks. When did you start gettin' energy drinks?
Chance: Probably about 3 years ago when a bunch of them starting comin' out, beyond the redbulls and the monsters. So after a while I just decided to try the new ones. Every week I'll try a new one.FM: One a week or something?
Chance: Yeah one a week, sometimes I'll cheat and have two....'cuz you know...FM: Uh-huh...FM: Are you keepin' track of all this? What's the best one?
Chance: That's a tough question...There's one called Cutting Edge. It's sort of a Monster knock off....it comes in a quad sized can. It's only a dollar and it's like you get 4 energy drinks in one can for a full session of riding!FM: Do you think it helps your riding?
Chance: Ummm...FM: Do you get all jittery?
Chance: It keeps me from getting all burn out, I guess. It's not magic or anything, but at least I won't be with no energy at all.FM:Where do you get them?
Chance: I like Big-lots they have a rotating selection of new drinks. Sometimes 99cent store is good. If I walk in there and see somethin' I've never seen before, I'M ON IT!FM:What happened with that Bob Marley one?
Chance: Oh, that's the one that made me mellow. People were Bitchin' at me at work. So I came home and drank one to chill out. I didn't want to think about all that stuff...
There's a quagmire energy drink, the character from the Family Guy.FM:What was that other one, Judge Wapner...?
Chance: Yeah, I got that one at Rocket Fizz! They have every drink over there or they will have it!FM:Are you going to start a blog about energy drinks?
Chance: I might want to do a shoot out. Make a chart showing everything from graphics to the vitamins and stuff.FM: How many drinks have you tried? Just estimate.
Chance: Ah....sheeesh... about 50 so far. It's hard to say. I didn't count.
Chance: The other day I had a headache. I don't know if it was energy drink related, but you know it might be like caffine, when you stop doing it, you might get a headache. So maybe I should just cool it for the rest of the week.FM: So would you consider energy drinks drugs?
....yeah.......yeah... a benign one though...
You might have to take an asprin if you quit the caffeine.
