this is why i watch my drinking very, very carefully

(Warning: this is a more than a little painful to watch.)

David Hasselhoff, about two weeks ago--he's come a long way since his Knight Rider and Baywatch days. I don't mean to judge him--he's just a guy. I'm just sayin'--just because, at 22, you and I can bounce back from a night of getting trashed with a headache and cup of coffee, with our livers fresh and relatively unspoiled, doesn't mean that's all there is to it. And staring the problem in the face is, for lack of a better word, sobering.

This video was never meant to be released to the public, by the way. I'm sharing it with you because it is a powerful reminder--and I'm sure the Hoff would back me up on this--that alcohol fucks you up. Not like "ha ha, oh man my head hurts" fucks you up, or even like "oh shit I slept with someone I shouldn't have" fucks you up. Alcohol fucks you up, and not just you, but everyone you love and care about.
