Mastermind (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania)

Mastermind

Overall not bad gear. This stamp has been around my area for a few months now.. Just some regular dope floating around the city!





Rush - 6
Count - 5
Legs - 5


-- Reader Submission from Pittsburgh. Thanks!

As always, all reviews should be sent to eveandthesnake@gmail.com!

Sons of Anarchy (Brooklyn, NY)

Sons of Anarchy

This stamp is called sons of anarchy pretty dope stamp and the quality matches. This comes from the BK/queens border near bushwick and ridgewood. Color is a light tan and it has that nice vinegar smell that good D usually has. Bags are always very good count and probably the best stuff ive gotten lately. 80/bun




Rush-8
Legs- 8

Count-9


-- Lou from Brooklyn, thanks!


NOTE FROM EVE: Proving it's a small world after all, this is either the original or a dupe of the stamp that has been my regular "best stuff" that I've been copping for the past couple months. Also tickled by the stamp, as I'm a big fan of the show. 


Remember, all reviews should be sent to eveandthesnake@gmail.com

Eve's Spring/Summer Breakdown '14

So folks, it's time for me to finally give you guys my spring/summer rundown of what's floating around NYC (and my bloodstream). I know it has been a long time since I've posted a review, unfortunately between some personal life circumstances and in wake of the death of the founder of this blog (RIP Jynxie) I just haven't had the time to post. However in the next couple weeks I plan to be updating the blog & moderating it a lot more, so hopefully I'll get a chance to make up for lost time. Anyway, enough with this digression, onto the reviews!


TOP CHEF - BROOKLYN



Typical mediocre Brooklyn crap. OK if you are sick or not picky at the moment, but if you're looking for quality steer clear. Also, I'd like to think the name of this is representative of some niche demographic of dope dealers who love the TV show Top Chef, hahaha. I'd love to be present for that target group TV marketing meeting!

NEW ARRIVAL - MANHATTAN


This is from back in spring, though its current equivalent is under a different stamp now. This stuff was the best quality I was getting at the time, though the count was very low.

R-6

L-6.5
C-4


RIGHT GUARD - BROOKLYN





Why in the world would someone want to link their product to a deodorant? If anything it makes me think they named it after what they were using to cut it. Again, typical Brooklyn street level stuff, nothing special.


R- 3

GOOD FELLAS - BROOKLYN



While the name is golden, I feel like the person who stamped this missed out on the chance to have some really choice artwork accompany this. Also isn't Goodfellas one word, not two? Don't know why they split up the word like that. Ah, the pitfalls of not understanding grammar. Makes me think of this. As to the actual product, mediocre all the way, straight 5's in every category.


R-5

OLD NAVY - BROOKLYN



Again another perplexing reference, after all dope doesn't really make me think about affordable khakis & t-shirts. Sometimes I think these people literally just look around the room and name their dope after the first thing they see. Same medium quality as the other dope from this area, maybe a slightly less grainy cut this time.


R-5
L-5
C-5.5


CHASE - LOWER MANHATTAN



This stuff was absolutely bizarre. When I got the bags, I realized immediately they were STUFFED - it looked like three bags were stuffed into each individual bag. However I quickly realized all the bulk was 100% cut, a shitty unidentifiable cut at that, that I definitely had some allergic reactions to. This was a one time connection, but if given the choice I would not return nor buy this again. Don't be fooled by the fat bags - BEWARE!


R-1

L-2
C-1 (Though there were a lot in the bags it was all filler, hence the rating)



HEAT - BROOKLYN



I gotta stop getting the same mediocre Brooklyn junk! (See what I did there? Yes I'm a dork) This stuff was maybe slightly more than average in the rush department, but again straight 5's for this one across the board.


R-5.5

L-5
C-5

That's all I got for the moment, but stay tuned for some more posts in the upcoming weeks. As always, I can be reached at eveandthesnake@gmail.com, and remember to send all reviews to that e-mail, NOT the one listed in the graphic, otherwise your review will not be posted. 

Also I'm planning to make a separate post about this subject as well, but until that's up I'll give you guys the basic gist of it here. I got an e-mail from a concerned reader about a red stamp by the name of "heart attack" going around Patterson, NJ. The source says that it appears to be cut with a stimulant of some sort, which we all know is not something you want to fuck around with. So watch out, and spread the word!

STAY SAFE - Love & Track Marks -

Jynxie Founder (Edited for clarification)

Hello all, Eve here, with a very heavy heart.

I've been MIA lately, and it wasn't until today that I learned, Jynxie, the founder of this blog, unexpectedly passed away on June 21st. Both Jynxie and her fiance were found dead in their burned house; at the moment the police are treating the death as suspicious & think the fire may have been set to cover up their murders. Their deaths do not appear to be drug related at this time (or if they are, the police haven't mentioned it), that is all the information that has been made public thus far. However I was told (by Jynxie) that both her and her partner were in a program & clean, save for the occasional blue moon indulgence. I have no personal opinion as to the nature/cause of their deaths, and don't care to speculate nor make any public comments about it. It makes me sad when people dismiss someone's death - everyone has a family that will mourn them and friends that will miss them. I only knew Jynxie from correspondence, but everyone (including myself) whose lives she touched had nothing but nice things to say about her, about her intelligence, wit, talent as an artist, kindness and commitment to harm reduction. Whatever your personal opinion is about addiction, these were two people who died far too young under brutal circumstances. I'm not going to go into my personal beliefs about addiction, but I will say that I pity the person whose heart is so hardened that they would see this young woman & her fiance's death as anything but lamentable. And even though it has already been posted elsewhere, I won't mention her or her fiance's real name out of respect, as I know she highly valued her privacy. 


As for the fate of this blog, I have not yet spoken to Rye but I know I am committed to making sure this blog continues. At this point the only changes that might have to be made is to move to a new URL so there can be complete control instead of partial admin access. Jynxie created this blog because she was interested in tracking the underground art of the glassine bags used for dope, especially as they are being phased out around the country and might soon become a thing of the past. The reviews just became incidental to the archiving, but she felt anything that could possibly aid in harm reduction (knowing a certain brand is very strong, or will get you sick) would be helpful - after all, dead junkies can't recover. It is in that spirit that I will continue this blog.

As a final note, I've noticed lately a rash of hateful comments. This blog is obviously geared toward users, no one is forcing anyone to read it. I find it bizarre that someone would come to a blog dedicated to something they deplore just to let those people know how terrible they think they are. The prevalence of social media has made narcissists out of everyone, and convinced them that their opinions are valuable and need to be heard simply because they are alive and have internet access.  In reality, nobody gives a shit what a random anonymous commenter thinks, especially myself. If you want to have an intelligent, respectful debate I am open to it, but people who are simply here to rant will be deleted and blocked.

If anyone wants to get in touch with me, I can be reached at eveandthesnake@gmail.com. For the moment, please send all reviews to that address and if you have sent reviews in the past two months that have not been posted please resend them to that e-mail as well.

RIP Jynxie, you were taken from this world too soon, and you will surely be missed. 

- Eve

Potentially best  bags I have ever had I went from shooting 5 as drop dead minimum to being content on 3 and puking on 4 with these and I never throw up they are amazing, I look for them above all else. I actually watched them get tested by a field heroin testing kit to which the reaction was virtually instant and very clearly positive for what I assume are massive amounts of heroin and possibly a nice cut? take care and enjoy.
R9.5(Different then usual almost a double rush, initial is like heroin but then a IV coke like rush comes)

Hard ten
I got this stamp twice
In New Brunswick it was garbage like dark brown R1L1C3 idk if it was even dope I 
got it in Paterson a month later and it was nice at least r7.5l6c8 strange I think I just 
got beat in New Brunswick so as long as the dope in the bag looks white u should 
be okay then it's probably the legit hard ten bags not the sketchy south jersey 
batch. P.S. I am updating this and have copped straight bags several more times of this stamp so I would say no worries.

New Bugatti! Originally i posted the green Bugatti six months ago which was just the logo . Now it came out in red with the logo(spelled correctly) and with it printed (incorrectly in capitals) under it. Instead of Bugatti it is spelled Bagatti. I think the misspelling is to deliberate to be a mistake and is a play on words maybe meaning bad addict , bag atti, bag addi, bag addict but who knows it might be a typo but I would find it odd to have a correct and incorrect spelling of the same word on the SAmestamp lmao . Like green Bugatti it is a very good stamp. The knockoff bag ain't too shabby. R8.5 L7 C8
