Reviews for "Smokin'"


good hell man.

it's not like i'm trying to justify nicotine,
and i know that death sticks often reign supreme,
these folks all smoke
for many reasons
the world we live in
its filled with treason
so let me have my cigs without making
such a scene

Is this taken from Parappa the Rappa: Smoking Edition???

I don't smoke and I'm offended by this...

No seriously, what backwards part of the country do you live in these days that allows smoking in bars. Unless you are talking about private property smokers, then I don't know what you are talking about. I don't smoke. I hate smoke, but serioiusly why make a song about it since its illegal to smoke in most restaurants and bars now.

vakavadesigns responds:

You didn't read the info at the top my friend. The song was written in 1992. I couldn't go ANYWHERES without getting blasted by smoke.

not bad

Think about it like this. The greatest songwriters in the world were smokers. Bob Dylan, John Lennon, Jim Morrison... and the guy who doesn't smoke made this... maybe you should start smoking ;) lol

vakavadesigns responds:

Coincidence maybe?


decent flash, wasnt bad at all, but wasnt amazing. wonder if smokers know the sensation theyre getting comes from depriving their body of oxygen, not chemicals special to cigarettes. try breathing really fast in and out of a plastic bag, youll get high. :P

usually i judge what i buy by comparing it to what could have bought. instead of seeing, what, $7.50 now per pack, i see 3 1Ib bags of sunflower seeds or 6 64 oz of coke refills, and so on. cigs are a waste of cash imo.

Thanks for your review Mr. Drizzle

But.... But.....

(Note: the following is all in fun and is NOT meant to be argumentative, so...).... I..... started smoking Not because it was cool, but because I REALLY liked the BUZZ. Sure, the buzz disappears after a week or two, but it still had the slight Tranquilizing/stimulant effect that, as an angst ridden teen, made life more tolerable.... And made adult life more tolerable .... and makes my 30's more tolerable..... I don't know. Anyone who says they like the "Taste" is a moron; what they like is the effect. We're all just drug addicts, just more socially acceptable ones. IF I had originally wanted to be cool by smoking, I wouldn't have smoked my first whole cigarette through my nose (I'm a weirdo, but aren't we all a little...?). Anyway, I dig what you're saying, but as for the smell, part of the reason I continue to smoke is because it MUTES my sense of smell. I stopped for a day a while ago and marveled at how inhumanly horrible most cities smell. Between the bus fumes, the garbage, the individual body odor, the random whiffs of pavement-cooked dog poo and the near constant smell of human urine, even smelling a cigarette butt I found on the ground would smell better. Once again, I don't know. One question: where do you live that people can still smoke in bars and restaurants...? I live in New York and, most of the time, you have to walk a few hundred yards away from any standing structure just to be able to pull a cigarette out of the pack, much less light it. I miss smoking areas INDOORS. If they brought that back in my state (and I mean STRICT smoking areas), I think everyone would be a lot less pissed off AND more considerate to others, but, then again, I'm one of the last true Pro-Smokers... We're a dying breed (Pun Intended). BUT, even tough I don't completely agree with the message, your 'Toon was well put together, well directed, the art was really nifty and the whole thing was just snazzy-keen. Good Job and I look forward to your next submission (But could ya go after the Vegetarians next time, maybe...? THAT is something I can get behind...)
PS. On the other hand, I WOULD like to be able to climb a flight of stairs and not have to sit down to five minutes and think about taking a nap...

vakavadesigns responds:

Bwahaha, now that review took a lot of thought and work. If I wasn't so lazy, I could turn it into audio and animate it.

Some crazy guy on youtube hammered my animation, saying that real men smoke because they're fearless about the consequences and boldly do what they love unto death. I bask in the wisdom of such geniuses.

Thanks for the tirade I mean review XD
