Rick Sebek’s New PBS Doc: “Crack Houses You Will Like”

sebaks

Pittsburgh, PA – After making a career creating a number of stellar human interest documentaries, Rick Sebak will be adding to his vast filmography with the release of his newest PBS special, Crack Houses You Will Like.  Filmed primarily in the Tri-state area, the lovable documentarian explores the softer side of some of the East Coast’s quaintest drug dens.

“I had done so many documentaries on food and amusement parks” Sebek said during an interview Monday.  “I really felt that I hadn’t explored one of the nation’s favorite pastimes: retreating into the icy claws of hardcore narcotics.”

Perhaps the most memorable segment of the special is when Sebek introduces us to Glenn Spadowski, a 53 year old heroin addict.  Spadowski is a former iron worker who was squatting in a burned out carpet warehouse in Braddock, PA (oddly enough, the warehouse was briefly featured in Sebek’s 1990 documentary Things That Aren’t There Anymore).  In a sleepy-poetic way, Spadowski’s segment reminds us of a simpler time when the stamp bags cost less, the needles were cleaner and the dealers didn’t mind if you “did some there.”

“Glenn Spadowski was a real character!” Sebek said.  “We have some great bonus footage of him trying to steal our audio equipment.  We’ll probably use that for the DVD.”

The documentary is classic Sebek: a light-hearted exploration of small town nostalgia except this time it has more tweakers boof’d out on spank sauce.

Study: Scalping a Bitter Enemy Still Best Treatment for Low Testosterone

scalp-1

Chicago, IL- A research team at Northwestern’s Feinberg School of Medicine have made an apparent breakthrough in the battle against low testosterone.  A study consisting of 244 men, ages 22-58, suffering from low testosterone found that their T levels went up significantly after subduing and scalping a hated rival.  The test, conducted over the course of several months, found that test subjects experienced a 44% boost in free testosterone after conquering an enemy and peeling off the top layer of their head skin with a tomahawk or other carving instrument.

“The implications of this study are vast,” said Dr. Adolpho Kinzateri, Head of Research at the Low T Institute in St. Louis.  “We are in the middle of an epidemic of middle aged men who don’t feel their best.  Their energy is down and their libido is suffering.  If these men could just set aside some time to flay the connective tissue between their adversary’s hair and skull once or twice a day, they would see an improvement in their condition.”

If participants wore headgear or cranefeathers or rawhide helmets that bore the horns of bull or buffalo like some Goblin from a hell more horrible yet than the brimstone land of Christian reckoning, participants saw an even better improvement.

Lewis and Clark on the Missouri River

Captain Clark:  The wind is at our backs today Captain Lewis.  It should allow us to cover more ground than expected.  We’ll arrive at the French trading post in the Dakota Territory a few days from now.  Just before the Winter season descends.

Captain Lewis: Hmm.

Captain Clark: What is it?

Captain Lewis:  Whew.  You’re gonna want to kill me.

Captain Clark:  Why?

Captain Lewis:  I’m such an idiot.  Really, I don’t even know how I function.

Captain Clark: Out with it man!  What is troubling you?

Captain Lewis: I cannot for the life of me find my wallet.

Captain Clark: Your wallet?

Captain Lewis: Yeah.  We’ve got to turn around and go look for it.

Captain Clark: Are you mad?  We can’t backtrack now.  We’re low on supplies and the frost is coming.

Captain Lewis: I understand.  Believe me, I’m not thrilled about it.  But I mean, all of my stuff was in there.  Like, everything.

Captain Clark: Where do you think it is?

Captain Lewis: I don’t know.  Maybe like St. Louis.

Captain Clark: We’re not turning around.

Captain Lewis: Well, I technically outrank you.  So, yeah we are.  Men!   Turn around.  We’re going to St. Louis.

——– 2 months later ———–

Captain Clark: We’re finally within sight of St. Louis.  You can look for your wallet now.

Captain Lewis: Whew.  You’re gonna want to kill me.

Captain Clark: In your pocket the whole time?

Captain Lewis: Yep.
