⚠️ Encyclopedia Dramatica is currently being restored by automated scripts ⚠️
There's been a lot of questions as to what's going on with the site and what comes next. So we have this (ordered) roadmap of what's being worked on and what's to come. This will be updated until the roadmap is complete as Æ has a lot of missing features and ideas that I'd like to fix in regards to its offerings before I implement big plans for the site's popularity and well-being in 2021.
Content restoration (Mostly done, few things missing that will be restored sporadically) Image restoration (Being run in background, nothing I can do cept wait)
Æ Imageboard (Currently being worked on)
Mediawiki upgrade and backend fixes
.onion domain for Tor-friendly editing and viewing
CSS overhaul (Fixing things like the videos on mobile, and overall a rehaul of the wiki's look to be more friendly to readers)
Paid bounty board for new articles (Won't be managed by me for legal reasons however I will ensure it runs smoothly)
Anonymous phone # service for those seeking ban evades from Twitter as well as a phone number not tied to their name (more details at launch)
Currently we are nearing our annual LLC renewal fee ($650) as well throwing the funds required for these other changes and aspects. If you would like to support Æ consider purchasing a copy of The Hustler's Bible or securing some Merch. Donating is also appreciated however I would rather give something back as per the two options above.
If you have any questions you can join our public Telegram chat to DM me privately or @ me in chat.
You can also email me via [email protected]
Merch notes: Thank you to all who have purchased merch. We will ship late January or mid February depending on our provider's speed.
Here's to setting the world on fire in 2021!
Pabst Blue Ribbon
Would you enjoy drinking rat piss for the sake of being 'ironic'? If so, Pabst Blue Ribbon, or PBR, is the beer for you! PBR is the official drink of hipsters, and much as gods of Olympus lived on ambrosia and nectar, no hipster can survive without a highly specialized diet of American Spirits and Pabst Blue Ribbon. Plus whatever the Mast Brothers make.
Fall from Grace
Pabst Blue Ribbon used to be the beer of the working man. Greasy construction workers and fry cooks would proudly down the piss liquid after work as fast as their battered wives could lovingly serve them. Somewhere down the line, a hipster decided that this alpha male beer would satisfy the subculture's thirst for an ironic beverage. Its irony is flawless for those who drink it fashionably, as it was originally associated with people who actually do work. Now an established image in pop culture and online, PBR is irreparably associated with people who think it is cool to draw mustaches on their index fingers. The company itself has succumbed to this stereotype, erecting billboards and advertising in 'artsy' places, such as Williamsburg and Portland.
Pabst Blue Ribbon tastes much like diluted, fermented vomit. However, it is still better tasting than Natty Light, yet better than Hamm's, which is quite possibly the most vile beer in the world.
Charlie Papazian, president of the Brewers Association, published the following tasting notes for Pabst Blue Ribbon in 2008: "A contrasting counterpoint of sharp texture and flowing sweetness is evident at the first sip of this historic brew. A slowly increasing hoppiness adds to the interplay of ingredients, while the texture smooths out by mid-bottle. The clear, pale-gold body is light and fizzy. Medium-bodied Blue Ribbon finishes with a dusting of malts and hops. A satisfying American classic and a Gold Medal winner at the 2006 Great American Beer Festival." Anybody who has tasted this shit knows that this is total bollocks.
Today, you may find empty Pabst Blue Ribbon cans scattered around independent coffee shops, small music venues, vintage shops, and many other stale-smelling places. There is a positive correlation between the amount of PBR cans littering an area and the number of hipsters that infest it. Because of this, it is much like a litmus test, warning the average basement-dweller if there is a high probability of being laughed at by tight-jeaned faggots in any certain area. Similarly, Pabst is an excellent indicator of douchebaggery. If you can't tell whether or not somebody is a hipster faggot, you will know the answer if they whip out a can of PBR.
PBR On the Internet
Pictures of under-aged tools drinking Pabst Blue Ribbon can be found in every corner of the internet. They are especially common upon Tumblr, where pictures of PBR-downing man-children, all devout scene kids two years ago, are re-blogged until every MGMT-loving 16-year-old girl has masturbated to them. Art featuring the beer is also popular and usually eye-scarring.
