BOOS! and WHOOP-DOOS!: Dip Your Cup in This ‘Donkey Punch’!

Donkey Punch? Whoop-doo!

Working as a transcriber for Inside Edition in 2001, I was handed a tape that quite disturbed me. We were never told what was going to be on these Digi-Betas and old school VHS cassettes. It was our job to log them and note anything of interest. The front label simply read "Attias Isla Vista". Having been at my other job all day, I had yet listened to the news. This sounded like some tropical island party tape. Or a deep meditation on the soothing attributes of the off shore wave. At first, it was both those things in equal measure. Photographed in bleak black and white, two nearby college students in the party friendly town of Isla Vista interviewed the local UCSB crowd. They chatted up drunken revelers as they drifted on a cloud of pot smoke towards the destination with the most free beer. Basically, it was a bunch of dumbshit frat daddies and sorority sisters having a good time. There was a genuine joy in the air. And these fellow undergraduates were acting stupid, as if they had not a care in the world. The home movie quality was cute, and it felt like a future embarrassment for a lot of the blind and stumbling participants. More than anything, it seemed like a really bland story for Inside Edition to be covering. I didn't understand why they would be interested in a bunch of doped up party kids.
