Help from fellow Everclear fans

Post by ekeown » Thu Apr 01, 2021 1:00 am

This is a little unusual, but I'm sure at least one of you can help. I don't want to get into any sort of political or vaccination debate, so please be respectful. I'll be getting my 2nd Moderna vaccination shot this Friday, and I'll still need two weeks after that for the vaccine to take full effect. In the meantime I still need to be safe for my family and myself. Unfortunately I've run out of an essential: hand sanitizer. I haven't been able to find any online or at the local stores, but I did find a recipe that seems pretty easy to follow, but I did have a question that I'm hoping at least one of you can answer.
Equipment:
Blender

Materials:
2 parts everclear
1 part aloe vera gel
24 drops Vitamin E Oil (optional)
24 drops Lavender or Tea Tree Oil (optional)

Instructions:
Wash all dry all utensils and tools and clean your work space with an all purpose bleach cleaner or something similar.
If using, add 24 drops of Vitamin E oil for softer hands.
If using lavender or tea tree oil add 24 drops of one or the other for smell.
Put all ingredients into a clean blender pitcher and blend for 60 seconds or until there are no chunks visible.
Pour into clean squeeze or pump bottles.

Notes
Always make sure all tools, bottles and work surfaces are very clean.
You can use a whisk and a mixing bowl instead of a blender. It's not as fast but will also work.
If you cannot locate 100% aloe vera gel try looking for sun burn treatment. Just make sure it doesn't have menthol or anything "cooling" in it and that it's still a gel, not a lotion.
My question for those who have used this or a similar recipe: how many and which Everclear CDs did you use? I assume you used CD because vinyl is much more expensive and tape cassettes would be much harder to find.

Thank you in advance!

I tried a workaround of using a home-made burnt CD, but it didn't work. I guess generic knock off doesn't quite work for this

So it seems to work but I think next time I'd make sure to blend at a more powerful setting and for longer so the CDs are ground up more finely. On the bright side at least this didn't burn since there wasn't any alcohol in the ingredients.

You forgot to mention that you need to turn the mixer up to BOMBASTIC setting.

My hands looked a little worse. Those CDs were hard to handle.

I think 2006's prank with the site and boards in spanish along with the release of and exclusive download of a new studio quality demo from Everclear, which ended up being a marachi band style cover of Heroin Girl by Chris Blackburn.
Thread Hyping up the release of the song
The song

This joke was actually planned out in advance instead of being something I thought about on March 31st, and was two separate jokes using the Spanish to remove some of the doubt that the song would be a prank.

After that, probably 2004's prank with the William Hung fan site HUNGry and Hollow since it was the first one I did.

Both of those pranks had music playing when you visited the site...too bad you miss out on hearing La Raspa (2006) and William Hung' singing She Bangs on a constant loop since the original methods to play that sound clips aren't supported by modern browsers.

Here are the pranks from the years the boards where most active:
