s02 e05- Come One, Come All, To the Drunkest Show on Earth

Sup Clowns,

I’m not clowning around when i say this week we went DEEP into the circus. we’re sticking to our Season Two theme of being drunk… I mean, being BROAD. Bringing you a rollercoaster of emotions (as usual?).

I cried when i was preparing my research, and you’ll probably cry listening to it.

John Wayne Gacy, Mary the (*beautiful, sweet, loving, angel) Elephant, and creepy pastas we’ll never understand are all included in this episode, plus so much more!

We drank margaritas, prosecco, and blueberry mojito this week,

If you’re looking to make your own blueberry mojito so you can drink along with the episode, the recipe is;

  1. 1 or 2 or 3 oz of white rum

  2. .5 or 1 or 1.5 oz of blueberry liquor

  3. as many mint leaves as you please (I like to use four & muddle them with the booze before adding the mix.

  4. Add in some ice and a couple frozen berries, ‘cause you fancy. (After muddling is complete of course)

  5. Add soda water & Sparkling lemonade (50/50)

  6. Garnish with a lemon or lime wedge and ENJOY

    • you can switch the sparkling lemonade for a little more soda and fresh lime juice with .5-1 oz simple syrup. Both options are equally as delicious, the first is just easier!

Enjoy the episode, you beautiful humans!

s02 e04- Time Travelling Lizards on Acid

Guess who’s back, back again…. the drunk girls are back….. tell a friend….

Sorry, had Eminem stuck in my head all friggin’ day.

It’s the blog! i’m a few days late, I apologize, coupla’ midterms bringing me down on productivity in all other area’s of my life but here I am!

We had a fucking fantastic episode guys, I’d put it in my top five for sure, but of course we covered another broad topic; Conspiracy Theories. The best part was that by then end we had made up our own! I don’t know if that surprises any of you, but we weren’t surprised.

Our newest theory is that Project Pegasus is just children (Including Obama) who were unknown participants of MK-Ultra and that is was all set up by Mark Zuckerburg, who is a lizard person. Want to know how we came up with that? Head over and take a listen!

s02 e03- Black hole drunk

wicki-wicki- welcome to the blog!

Ever feel like you don’t belong? You look at rockets blasting off and think, “That should be me….” . You see pictures of outer space and imagine yourself as Sandra Bullock in Gravity but you’re just totally fine to be there forever, in peace?

Well, you’re in luck because this week is all about space. Another broad topic for the drunk girls, who were extra slurry this week (oops, i’ve been dieting, the vodka hit me hard).

You know a broad topic gets me as excited as an Italian Pinot Grigio on a (insert any weather) kind of day, and of course this episode hits all. the. stops. To infinity and beyond! (is that podsafe?)…… or at least to the moon.

If you get lost in watching the cosmos then don’t worry! We know way less (about space) than Neil deGrasse Tyson…. Although most drunk girls can be hard to follow, with us, you’re sure to laugh, cry and call your mudder and ask her for all life’s answers.

I feel like this has been weird….

s02 e02- Dying for a Folk-Tail

Hello my pretties,

I just wrote this entire post then accidentally deleted it… that seems to be a recurring theme in my life lately.

Am I on a loop? Is this real life?

Anyway, back to the blog, this isn’t my diary….. Welcome back to season 2, on this week’s episode we’re talking about Folklore that inspired Murders! Which is HELLA creepy, we know, but with this new season we’re revamping our dark ways and although we did choose a murder-y topic we kept it mostly to the folklore and background of our chosen topics, there’s a ton of interesting content this week.

And with all grand topics (we admit, some are definitely better than others) this really took all of us down very different rabbit holes. Which I LOVE because it really gives a good variety to our episode, for example; Maria had hometown glory this week with the mummers, I delve into an old nightmare and an internet phenomena (Slenderman) and Ellen explored both creepy clowns and went off-the-grid, on-the-grid with a story involving wendigos.

You’re going to love this one, I promise!

*send us some love notes too, we love hearing from you!

S02 E01- Drunk and rowdy spirits

Happy of the 2019!

We made it, and New year, new us is a freakin’ understatement baby! We’ve rebranded, now, a spooky podcast (mostly because of my (Jaimee) inability to find and present unsolved stories each week. If you think about it though, we’re opening ourselves up to SO MUCH MORE. Don’t worry, we’ll still be brining you all thinks conspiracy, paranormal and true crime. As we’ve mentioned earlier we’re also going bi-weekly, just to reiterate for those who may not have heard, this will help to bring us more focus, achieve a weekly blog post and also to bring you stories of higher quality. As much as we’re obsessed with each other, this is a for fun podcast, and we all have so many other things on the go. Life is about balance, and sometimes it takes awhile to figure things out, that’s just what we’ve done here with season two.

To start out a new, exciting season with a bang, we decided on a super spooky and also factually interesting topic; POLTERGEiST’S !!!! Let’s make one thing clear, we will never say for sure something is real or isn’t, but there’s some pretty damn crazy evidence in this episode arguing both sides, and honestly a mix in between.

So check it out on the listen page! And lovelies, it’s great to be back, we’ve missed you.

IMPORTANT UPDATE!

Hello angels,

It’s me, Jaimee.

If you’ve been checking to see what’s up with our blog the past few months you’ve noticed that we’ve (really just me.) been MIA, with no updates or corresponding pictures, etc.

Let me first just say, I’m sorry. I made an obligation to keep up to date with it and eventually I got so far behind the mere thought of updating gave me anxiety and I continued to push it aside. There are no real excuses, but honestly life has been crazy. Working full-time, doing the podcast and going to school full-time, while maintaining a social life and, as an introvert, me time, it’s just very busy. BUT, i’m here and committed for the new year.

As we mentioned in our last episode of 2018, we’ll be going bi-weekly in the New Year. This will help us have better episodes as we’ll have longer to research to prepare better our stories, it’ll also allow us to get more lit when we do record and it’ll allow me more time to focus on making the blog the raddest corner of the internet I can, with the wildest pics and the cutest notes.

Your drunk girls are the type of girls who keep busy schedules and get shit done, we’re not perfect though and the resolution for the new year is better time management.

Hold me to it!

-Jaimee

EP.23- A Degree in Drinking

Oh hey!

We had an amazing week this week, and so i’m doing two blog posts and it’s three in the morning so please excuse my rambling but I just have so much to share!

First of all, our episode this week was a topic suggested to us by the Lovely Airen. We did Haunted Universities!

I was too afraid to research whether or not my University was haunted so I actually just looked for a crazy haunted random one and found my way to the University of Northern Colorado. Maria took us to Scotland and lil’ Ellie Poo kept us local talking about STFX and Acadia University. We’ve got some amazing stories including but not limited to Ouiji Boards, Nuns, Janitors, and Stoner Ghosts.

Its a funny one guys, you’re going to love it!

Head over to the listen page to check it out!

ep.22- Stick Em' Up! Give me all the Booze!

Happy Friday Homies!

Welcome to the land of the Unsolved, sometimes solved.

If you’re like us, the thought of robbing a bank and living happily ever after has probably crossed your mind a few times. Mostly on the dreary days, when it’s a pay day is a few days away and your hopes and dreams are shattered by your empty bank account and ever increasing credit card balance. Also like us, those thoughts probably dissipate once you realize your life would be way worse and you’d inevitably be caught before you even got the money in the bag.(if you were even convincing enough to get some poor bank teller to make a move toward money.)

If all of that seems relatively familiar, then boy, have we got an episode for you. You can happily live vicariously through the lives of some pretty interesting criminals this week without any risk of jail! That’s right, we’re talking about heists!

Usually we’re on the side of the victims, but this week we’ve fallen in love with some of our criminals, and we think you will too!

But also note that some of our criminals drew on masks with sharpie.

We’re taking you on a wild ride this week guys! Get excited! We are!

It’s the last two days of voting for the Coast’s Best of Halifax readers choice award.

EP.21- Things that get drunk in the night.

I see you've found your way back, it's so great to have you here!

We had a sick episode this week talking about Mooooooonsters! With so many really cool monster animals from the cryptozoology world, this is definitely a topic we'll touch on again.... and again. 

I'll be honest, sometimes i'm just living my best life, serving craft beers on the patio of the bar I work at, and I remember that dolphins exist, and I get freaked out about how frickin' weird the world is. Life is just a series of mini existential crisis'... I know it can't just be me. 

I kinda got off topic there but the point is, some really weird things exist, and some maybe don't exist, but real or not we're gonna talk about them today! (Some you've heard of, some maybe not)

*** Also i was drunk and called the werewolf in harry potter sirius black even though i know damn well it's lupin. my brain is constantly working against me, it's an unsolved mystery all it's own.

Check it out!

Thank you to The peanut gallery for sitting in to listen for the first part of recording, we loved having you!

Also Voting for the Coast's Best of Halifax Awards is STILL OPEN, that means if you haven't, you can vote for us at www.bestofhalifax.com , we're under the news and media category!

ep.20 - may the power of booze compel you

Hello Lovelies,

Welcome to the blog.

it's probably clear by the episode name but if you're reading this at 4am, like i'm writing it at 4am and your brain is tired and you just don't know , well then the episode is about exorcisms. 

And golly gee it was an intense one. I think I say that about all our episodes but this one will throw you through the ringer. We get pretty serious about mental health then talk about the exorcist we even ask google for some answers to questions we should probably know. 

As promised, here's the link to Anneliese Michel's exorcism tapes..... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qr-IdHU3A5M

It kind of makes me want to break out the ouija board and see what's up with the demons in my life. (Just kidding, I'm too scared to actually click that link.......... bless ellen for taking that on.)

Also, I live for Maria's illustration this week..... she's on FIRE.

I love you guys. you're the shit.

VACATION POST- EP.18 & EP.19

Hey,

I'd like to apologize for not posting in a few weeks. That's my bad, life is crazy! Vacation was crazy, and getting back into the grind was...well, hard. 

But now we're back! We've recorded episode 20 and it's amazing and awesome and something for us all to look forward to... but going back a few weeks,

Episode 18 was all about voodoo! I'll be honest our stories gave me LEGITIMATE nightmares. So if you're into scary shit this episode is totally for you. I mean they're all for you, but this one, super spookyyyyy,

For Episode 19 we did something a little different, we had a guest bartender (Coady LeBlanc) come on and make us amazing cocktails for our pre-vacation episode. It was incredible, we learned a ton and got pretty friggin' drunk drinking his awesome cocktails. We spoke about mysterious fires and things got intense! 

GUYS WE LOVE YOU! 

I PROMISE MY BLOG POSTS WILL BE BACK ON TRACK THIS WEEK. YOU'RE THE BEST!

EP.17- Area Fifty-Drunk

Hey there.... Have I told you how lovely you are lately?

So anyway, we're back on the Aliens again homies, it's been awhile and I know you're excited and we were too. Oh..... so excited... and passionate. Loud and... destructive? (RIP wine glass, gone too soon.... you'll be missed). But how can you NOT be excited about Area 51?????

This episode is from a simpler time.... a time during a heat wave where a flight of cider from Chainyard and some nice cold Prosecco made us extra energetic and idyllic. Do we stay on topic? Somewhat, did we learn a lot?  Definitely some! 

But honestly the stories are gold this week.....

OH, and just so you know! 

We've be nominated for theCoast's  Best of Halifax 2018 Awards for Best Podcast!

EP.16- The Boo's Hotel

Hi, by the way! Hope that wherever you are you're enjoying the heat and if you're in Halifax and you're anywhere without air conditioning.... bless your little soul and good luck. 

This weeks episode is pretty gory and spooky, you're definitely going to enjoy it. You may never sleep in a hotel comfortably again but that sounds kinda like a you problem to me!

Enjoy the spooks guys!

EP.15- I Want to Suck your Booze

Sup Homies!

Welcome to an extra lit episode of the Drunk Files! Part 2 of our 2 episode recording night does not disappoint! These are some hella cool stories about Vampires! We all took a different direction with our stories, theres some crime, some paranormal, and some folklore in this episode and honestly, it's one of my favourites. 

How can you not love your extra buzzed, friendly neighbourhood Drunk Girls? 

I'll warn you there is some hissing, and a variety of Transylvanian accents, also more gasps and excitement than any prior episode. 

Oh, and it's episode 15 guys, how crazy is that??? 

Remember, we always love hearing from you! Send us an email, rate us on iTunes, join our social media pages! Ellen's been killin' it with the memes. 

Go listen now!!!! 

Kisses, xx the drunk girls.

Ep.14- "HEY! You forgot your guts!"

Sweet Baby Angels!

It's been a productive, successful, awesome week for your neighbourhood drunk girls. We had a great bonding weekend full of liquor, love, bars, good food and lakes. It was super cute and my heart is full...

SO many other great things have happened this week though! Some we'll be sharing later on but.... We finally made it onto spotify, and we're trying to get in the running for theCoast 'Best of Halifax' awards, knows we won't win but we're trying to spread the word! So if you're reading this..... Spread the word!

Annnnnnnnnyyyyway, this week we did 'found body parts' as a topic, it's pretty gross..... I'm gonna be honest guys, this episode is pretty chill compared to most and i'll tell ya why; We decided to record two episodes in a room back to back, in the same night. While we knew this was going to take place we actually contained ourselves extremely well throughout this episode.... I can't say the same thing about next weeks episode but you'll have to just tune in then  and find out all about that, eh?

Check out the episode under the listen page!

You're so wonderful!

Ep.13- Drinking in Nova Scotia

Happy (late) Canada day, eh!

What better way to celebrate than to record all Nova Scotian stories! 

We left the topic open to anything, just had to be within Nova Scotia, unsurprisingly we all came back with ghost stories.... Mostly cause Nova Scotia is haunted as fuck, but also because we're obsessed with the paranormal.

You'll hear some spooky stories from Halifax to Cape Breton , and also some wicked fun facts that Ellen brought to the table about our tiny little province.

Head over to the Listen Page for this weeks episode!

Oh, and if you think we're as cool and funny as we do.... follow this link https://bestofhalifax.com/#/gallery/?group=288226  to nominate us as for the Coast's Best of Halifax awards ! 

Thanks homies, we love you !

Ep.12- The Probable, Possible, Plausible Nessie

Guys ! 

This week we were talking about Nessie and honestly this episode will give you a ton of explanations and make you question everything you thought you knew.... but that's good right!

We definitely believe in Nessie.... Maybe.... We're still not sure.... We're going to go listen again....

Also bask in the loveliness that is Seamus the Sea Monster..... I mean from a distance he might fool a toddler, eh? I'll ask my nephew in a year. I bet I can freak him out. 

Love you all!
