Remember Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle in 2004 or the first sequel, Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay, in 2008.? If so, you'll feel like you've already seen A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas, except that it's in 3D and set around the holidays. Slacker Kumar (Kal Penn), the son of Indian immigrants, is still shitfaced on weed. But Harold (John Cho), his Korean buddy, has made it on Wall Street (protesters are trying to occupy his office) and found a Latina wife who's ovulating. "Fuck a baby into me, Harold," she squeals. You get my point. We're getting more of the same, but less of the impact, like weed from a bad dealer. It's not long before Harold, or Roldy as Kumar calls him, is high again, pushing past weed into cocaine, Ecstasy and crack. A new character, the daughter of Harold's friend (Thomas Lennon), also gets to sample the goods. Hi-larious, huh? The openly gay Neil Patrick Harris, or NPH as we fans calls him, again portrays himself as a shameless pussyhound. "See you in the fourth," he tells the boys, hinting at yet another sequel. Say it isn't so. H&K are past their sell-by date. Way past.

    “Santa Monica”

    Everclear | 1996

    After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
