Why do people think they can crush up pills and whatever the fuck there doing and call it heroin? Selling niks for $10 and its GARBAGE!! Shame on me, really. I'd hang these fucktards by there toenails if I could.

"My last review was World Wide, this stamp has replaced it (Red Butterfly) and the dope IS different and even BETTER!! Very strong. Ive been trying to write this review for well over 2 hours!! Very heavy nods although im a bit tired.
This stamp is no joke.  (ed note: Careful, folks; DO A TEST SHOT!!!)
10's across the board. 
Best H ive done in NYC! (I know I said that about World Wide a few days ago but this Red Butterfly takes the cake..)
Its clean and very potent so be SUPER careful! Ive been in the game for a long time and this is the real deal people. Prospect Heights area. Goodluck!!!

"By far the best grease Ive come across this year. Most of my doings are in Brooklyn.  WORLD WIDE is a Prospect Heights area thing and today the stamp turned into a red butterfly. Have no idea why. Same shit. It may go back to the original stamp. These bags are not stamped by the way. They are decorated from the factory. lol
The stuff inside is heaven. It started with red bags which was absolute FIRE and quickly went to blue which seemed just a little less potent but still high quality."

eta: Here's another review of WORLDWIDE from way back in 2009, Im always amused with reiterations of stamps--these newfangled "factory print" versions are an interesting development, ha!  http://dequinceyjynxie.blogspot.com/2009/09/worldwide.html


Fall '13 Brooklyn v/a Taxi Service/Tango/Happy Hours/Hellboy(2)

Hello junkies and junkiettes, it's your girl EVE here, back from my brief disappearance. No, I didn't overdose or end up in detox or any of the things that come with the life, but was busy keeping up with the hustle. I'm also on a epic trip down to a city that starts with an A and is located in a state that starts with a T and ends with a S. Anyway enough of me running my mouth, let's get to what you're here for, which is some reviews of what's been flowing through my veins.....

Now I wrote a while back about Taxi, and this apparently is some sort of variation of that brand, except they dropped the graphic and added "service" to the name - Taxi Service. Unfortunately, those changes didn't extend to the actual product. You can put a lipstick on a pig....

This next brand I had to travel out to some fuck-all desolate spot in Clinton Hill, and it ended up being for nothing - I mean, I am a "Have needle will travel" type of gal, but it better be because it's worth it. You can barely make out the brand name, but it says "Tango" which is misleading because it should say "shit." Besides a horrible count & high, It was also cut with something gravely and gross.

Next up we have the product that was from the same makers of Hellboy™ that was in the mix for a while. I've been calling it Happy Hour though I just realized it technically says Happy Hours. Me & my new partner in debauchery, who I'll call EVAN, both agree that this is good, just not as good as Hellboy. Still, when HB isn't available, this becomes as far as I know the best of whats available.

Next up is something I picked up in Manhattan that doesn't actually have a name on it, just a symbol (How Prince!) but is obviously called Gucci because that's the symbol it's reppin'. This stuff is ok, but at $100 a bun is not worth the price. Basically, if there is nothing else I'll take it, but it's not what I'd order if given a menu.

Finally, this brings us to an update of a lot of Brooklyn junkies favorite brand, Hellboy. Back in rotation, this stuff seems to be the best of what is out there at the moment (or at least, the best of what I can get my hands on). While it's obviously not the best ever, It's definitely my regular order until something better comes along.

That said, I've heard rumors of something called Worldwide or something similar possibly being the best in Brooklyn? If anyone has come across this stamp I'd love a review.

Got a half bun of these guys in downtown Newark. They were not cheap by any means ($8 a pop) but the regular guys weren't out due to a strong police presence. This stamp was fucking terrible.

I was so disappointed after I did these. I had scored fire on Monday and then this shit popped up. Classic downtown trash. 

 Here's another stamp straight out of Paterson. I'm not a fan of their dope or the way they serve but I heard this shit is fire and cheap. Indeed no lies were told and it was cheap and fire. I got 14 bags for $65, not a bad deal.

Count: 7, The bags were your average weight, not small but not fat
Rush: solid 8.
Legs: Hard to tell  because I only had it an hour ago, but I'm still going strong. I'll give it an 8.

HeatWaves- Good stamp, not fire here but solid no let down. Replaced Bugatti for a few weeks in summer.

BUGATTI (Paterson NJ)

Paterson, NJ : Fourth Ward
"To start off my review there are very very many stamps going around Paterson, all the time. Copping daily there for nearly a year I've seen over 50 and wish I took more pictures. I'll try to start cataloging them all from now on. To start off with my staple and all time long term favorite bag.
Bugatti . Green stamp on white glassing bag with oval around words. This stamp is consistently my favorite and has been around for a long time. "
R: n/a
"They're not the best bags I've ever had but are extremely consistent and always satisfying. Good size very whitish powder. I sniff so don't know how it looks mixed but it tastes good. Not always the neatest especially lately but who cares if its good. I usually do about 10-15 bags at a time in a maze of lines that disappear after about two minutes. I never have to get more than the average 12 or 13 to feel these and a couple will get rid of sickness."

NICKELODEON ("Do do you have it..GUTS!"/"Double Dare") / WARHORSE

"Been enjoying these little guys for a little while- so I thought I would send a review."

"Picked up in Manhattan- they have been through a few incarnations.  First a couple of Nickelodeon stamps: "Do do do do you have it... GUTS!" and "Double Dare 2000" in white and blue glassines, but mainly plain blue (pictured above).  Powder is very light tan, flaky and pebbly with a few crystals- breaks up fluffy."

"Nice and easy on the schnozz, and a mellow, energizing high with a nice nod after settling down when work is done.  Hangs around for a while and lets me back down easy.  Bags are kind of light but the price is definitely right.  These are my favorite go-to at the moment."

 **Big thanks to reader "S" for submitting a RED warhorse! --Jynxie 1/17/13

"Also picked up some white bags in Brooklyn with a green stamp of a horse labeled "WAR HORSE".  Powder light tan and a tad grainy."

"Pretty pricey with fair-sized bags but still a little light.  First one I tried made me sick (headache, nauseated)  so I shelved them, but hauled them out later without the same effect.  Burn like heck when snorted. Fairly sedating.
Whatever these are cut with is a little caustic and unpleasant.  
Overall these didn't treat me all that well--but may be the cat's pajamas for someone else--who knows?"

First up, we have a Camden, NJ stamp that is pictorial in nature. Let the user name it/call it what he/she will. I called it "ThunderClouds", for good reason. Phat bags, well over 50mg.'s. Off white, stings the nose with potency, and not quite 3 tickets got me a heavy nod, with variations of super energy, which I find utterly fascinating. Hard to find, much sought after, and simply superb gear! Definitely quality material.

Next up, from Lakewood, NJ, we have a REALLY PROMISING "LOOKING" stamp named "MISFITS". Loved the stamp!! Just figured it was geared for the crowd it attracted. Well, well, well...... Price was $80 a bun. Count was almost non-existent. (about 10, to maybeeee 20 mg.'s each ticket) Quality SUCKED.
Not a buzz in a bun. (for a sniffer) :(      
AVOID. Such an insult to such a wonderful stamp.

Q: 1

Lets move south a wee bit, to Atlantic City, NJ, and a stamp named "VERSACE". Finally some quality to be had. Average size (30-45mg.'s?) [Not to be a jerk, but I am well practiced with the plate to make an accurate ballpark guess as to weight], GOOD potency, nothing fantabulous here. Standard 4 to 5 bag energy-nod. $80 a bun, with NO plays. (free tix)
R: n/a
C: 6
Q: 6

Another batch found in the wilds of AC, NJ, was named "WHITE LIGHTNING".
Pricey, at $90 a bun, the count was surprisingly impressive, considering recent disappointing forays. No 'Plays' to be had for the expenditure, so this is like Saks 5th Ave prices. Puhleeeeze. Anyway, quality is real NICE! Tix weigh approx 50 to 60 mg.'s each, maybe a little more. Just dont feel like whippin out and settin up the micro-gm skizzle. :/  I was feeling 2 of these, but wasn't cleared to get in a third at the the time, so gotta follow up, but really nice light brown fluffy powder, and a good energy surge, less the nod for now. Nice gear!

Summer 2013 (Best of Delaware..) v/a HIGH VOLTAGE/SPRING FEVER/NOD OUT/YOUTUBE

HIGH VOLTAGE-(blue bag-blue ink-lightning bolt symbol)- very good
SPRING FEVER-(white bag-Purple ink sunshine symbol)- very good

*submitter also included this review but did not have a pic:
 "Something I tried a few separate times that's also going around Williamsburg called "SMACK DOWN" . And this stuff isn't the best but pretty damn good. The rush is real nice and I didn't notice much of a huge nod each time but that's okay.  It dissolves pretty easy like it should and overall it's pretty alright with me. Bags are also pretty average quantity. Unlike the 'home run' which was pretty skimpy as well. Overall I rate it an 8 or 9. Not a 10 simply because I've done better. That's all. :)"

STINGRAY (Paterson, NJ)

"This is one of the other best stamps around Paterson and has had many different names. Originally it was purple "boom". Then it was this purple "Stingray". Most recently a purple stamp called "GOYA" . All the same dope and all very good. Fat bags and good quality white d. Possibly better than bugatti? I go back and forth on which is better. Both very high quality and never a let down so don't hold back if you see this--you may even do 80% your regular dose and feel just as good."

ed note: This submission also covered 2 other stamps: (Bugatti and 9 1/2) but it seems only the "Stingray" image attached correctly! To the person who submitted this review: PLEASE resend the images of the other 2 stamps and I'll post up the full reviews! In the meantime, THANKS MUCH!

OZONE (Lakewood, NJ)

"Here is a ticket called "OZONE" (2 pics enclosed)
These showed on the plate (scale) that they averaged 35-45 mg.'s each. Already off to a bad start....
These are from Lakewood, NJ and were a fair count for the brick, but the price was ridiculous, and the quality was absolutely utterly poor. Not one moment of enjoyment to be had, unless tolerance is beginning to rear it's ugly face.
Darker brown, bitter flaky and chunky pseudo-powder, tastes like the real thing, but didn't NOT even get the slightest buzz. I wonder if these were well prepared 'dummies'. I just don't know.... Avoid. Totally. "

"***[NOTE: below is direct eevidence of a nod while typing (lol)]***"

"Extra-nice packaging really jumps out at you. the "venom" label (including aagw...................................................s .....................................                          
somewhat lobstery-looking scorpion) isn't even a stamp, it's a roll of thin tape with the same picture on it over and over. it doubles as an insignia and a seal. very classy boys, i was starting to lose faith in your professionalism when i picked up "taxi" the other day. 

Anyway, pretty fat count though not totally uniform from bag to bag. seven or eight I'd say -- call it eight to be charitable. If you put it in your nose it's got a stingy/sweet taste that kind of reminds you of fruity pebbles. 

Definitely a jolt of mellow, maybe cut with benzos? either way, pretty nice, but with no iv cant really say for rush.

Too early to give an informed opinion on the legs, but i like where it's going at the moment -- seven's about right. in sum: some mighty fine dope, and the $80 tag makes it that much sweeter ~~ <((\o_0/))^"

August v/a Rundown (Camden, NJ): I-Dope/Bring A Friend/No Parking/USDA

"The following stamps are all from Camden, NJ and ALL of them are Philly-style Double-Seals, with the small square bags in an outer mini-ziploc bag. Good for keeping greedy hands from screwing with the cookie-jar. ;)
All stamps were weighed, net and gross, on a micro-gm scale, just for the hell of it! 
(And, to see how badly we are being ripped off....)"

"First up is a stamp named 'I-DOPE'. (2 pics)
Count is so-so, around 40-50 mg.'s each. A LONG way off from the "Industry Standard" of 1 point each. (A "point" is .1/g or 100mg.'s)
Quality was decent. Nice, grayish white soft powder. Acceptable potency. Nice nod after hoovering 3 of these rascals. "

R: n/a
C: 5
Q: 7

"Next up is a stamp called 'BRING A FRIEND'. 
Nice count (all things considered), around a half-point each (50mg.'s +/-) GREAT potency, and LONG-LASTING feel-good high and nod! Quite energetic, too, if I do say so myself. My favorite of this assortment."

R: n/a
C: 7
Q: 8

"Next up we have one I have encountered a few times called 'NO PARKING'. 
Count was very depressing for $10 per bag. Lucky if each bag had 25 to 35 mg.'s. Folks, this is UNACCEPTABLE!! That is a pathetic 1/3 of a POINT!! I mean, WTF?!?! Such GREED in Camden as of late, as well as numerous other unspeakable dramas....good grief!
Quality was GOOD, but not near that of BRING A FRIEND."

R: n/a
C: 3
Q: 6

"Finally, we have a rather unique Camden stamp. 'USDA' and Logo in red ink on a small white square bag.
These were the largest of the four, containing on average nearly 60-80 mg.'s each. Now, THATS more like it! 
This was some really nice, fluffy off-white powder, that hoovered very deliciously. A very gentle, and clean high, with an air of energy to it.
I really enjoyed these."
