Red Ace Organic Beet Juice Energy Shots

I've never been a big fan of "energy shots" since my experience with them has been limited mainly to the ones you find on the counter at truck stops. I understand that folks are interested in a way to boost their energy pre-workout, on roadtrips, or during the late afternoon zombie hours of cubicle workdays, but too often these gimmicky shots are sugary, overcaffeinated legalized crack that will wake you up, but are pretty likely to leave you with a raging headache and a jittery, lingering sense of remorse.

Unlike other energy boosters, Red Ace Organic Beet Shots are all natural. Each two ounce bottle is filled with 100% organic beet juice, the equivalent of 3 whole beets, densely packed with nutrients and antioxidants to enhance your performance and improve your overall nutritional health.  They're a quick and delicious way to get long lasting, clean energy with no sugar crash or caffeine fallout. 

Beet juice reputedly helps to lower blood pressure and increase oxygen levels, boosting your stamina and overall cardiovascular health. But juicing organic beets at home can be cumbersome, time consuming, and expensive. Red Ace helps you get right to the beet benefits you want, just by twisting the cap of their recyclable glass bottles. No peeling, roasting, juicing, or composting required. And an added bonus: once you peel off the shrink wrap, Red Ace bottles are a great size and shape for storing bulk spices or knick knacks.

Red Ace Performance Shots are available in three varieties: Original Organic Beets - lasting energy, Organic Beets & Turmeric - quick recovery, and Organic Beets & Greens - cleansing and detoxification. I enjoyed them all but the Turmeric is a particular favorite, for its gingery flavor and anti-inflammatory properties. It's not the recommended usage, but adding a Red Ace shot to your favorite Bloody Mary recipe adds some excellent flavor, nutritional value AND hangover-relieving properties…

You can order Red Ace Organic Beet Shots online (use code superdumbsupervillain at checkout for 15% off!) , or look for them at a grocer near you. I found them on an end cap in my local Whole Foods!

My Entire High School Sinking Into The Sea

Sometimes, a film comes around that seems as though it was made for you. This looks like one of those, at least for me. Jason Schwartzman, Reggie Watts, and Maya Rudolph voicing high school newspaper geeks? Umm, yeah, I *lettered* in newspaper.

Really, really looking forward to seeing My Entire High School Sinking Into The Sea. (Not literally, of course.)

From acclaimed graphic novelist Dash Shaw (New School) comes an audacious debut that is equal parts disaster cinema, high school comedy and blockbuster satire, told through a dream-like mixed media animation style that incorporates drawings, paintings and collage. Dash (Jason Schwartzman) and his best friend Assaf (Reggie Watts) are preparing for another year at Tides High School muckraking on behalf of their widely-distributed but little-read school newspaper, edited by their friend Verti (Maya Rudolph). But just when a blossoming relationship between Assaf and Verti threatens to destroy the boys’ friendship, Dash learns of the administration’s cover-up that puts all the students in danger. As disaster erupts and the friends race to escape through the roof of the school, they are joined by a popular know-it- all (Lena Dunham) and a lunch lady (Susan Sarandon) who is much more than meets the eye. But even as the film piles on brilliant details like a post-apocalyptic cult formed by jocks, video game homages, and an infectious synth soundtrack, it never loses sight of the characters at the heart of the story. Hailed as “the most original animated film of the year” and “John Hughes for the Adult Swim generation” (Indiewire), the film’s everyday concerns of friendships, cliques and young love remind us how the high school experience continues to shape who we become, even in the most unusual of circumstances.
