They combined Code Red, White Out, and Voltage for this patriotic flavor, aptly named. The White Out was my favorite alternative Mountain Dew flavor, but they don’t carry it anymore. When I first tried the DEW-S-A it seemed to have an odd aftertaste and I couldn’t place it from the 3 flavors. I got used to it after a few sips and it ended up being a solid drink, earning a 7.5 out of 10.
I got burnt out in 2019, but 2020 relit my fire for making stuff.
- Moving a Thermostat
- DIY Rack/Band Pegs
- My New Office: Lighting & Furniture
- Modifying/Upgrading a DP Ultra Gympac
- New Air Tools and More Storage
- Bath Tub Tray/Caddy
- Mini Convertible Picnic Table and Benches
- A Lesson in Wood Movement
Once I found the spark, the rest of the year felt balanced, in terms of not doing too much and varying the types of projects. My favorites were the new home office, the Gympac, and the picnic table / benches. 2021 is off to a great start with several posts already published and others being planned. The hobby room updates will allow me to get back to electronics projects.
Netflix’s five episode season 1 of The Playbook is good. Each episode is 30-35 minutes with a coach talking about their “Rules for Life.” All of the coaches were very different, as were their rules. By the end, I realized they shared a common and very important skill, which is understanding and working with people. It’s not an easy skill to excel at and these coaches are doing it at the highest levels of sport, with some of the best to play their games.
Add it to your list and watch.
Tastes a little like Skittles. This gets 8/10 from me.
This flavor is an exclusive to Walmart. After the initial taste it starts to sink it’s teeth in. I like it. Solid 8/10. I’d buy it again.
This has a nice lemonade taste to it and is a good summer drink. Gets a 7/10.
Last year I used a Hypervolt massage gun at my friend’s house and thought it was pretty cool. I wasn’t going to pay $300+, for what is essentially a fancy jig saw, though. Theragun also makes really nice ones, but those can even run up to $600! A couple of weeks ago I saw a thread on Reddit with a link to some more afordable options. I clicked on one and saw really good reviews. It looked nearly identical to the Hypervolt with more speed settings and a lot of attachments. After an Amazon Prime discount, $10 coupon, and tax it came to $95.39. That’s a price tag I could feel okay about spending on a device I might not use much. It’s the Darkiron Massage Gun and here’s an Amazon link to it.
When I opened the box there was even a little card with an offer to get a free battery after submitting a review. Could be why their reviews are so good. 😉 After a little use I submitted an Amazon review, emailed the company, and received a spare battery within a week.
This thing is pretty quiet and runs for 90 minutes on a single charge. As you can see it comes with a bunch of attachments, though I’ve only used the soft ball so far. The case is nice too. I’m really happy with my purchase and it’s a gun I can recommend for the price.
Maybe being impressed by Coke Zero set my expectations too high, because this should be called Zero Flavor. It’s worse than Mellow Yellow.
MtDewVirus Score: 2/10
I posted recaps of my making for 2017 and 2018. I thought I might be able to hit 100 making posts in 2019, but I fell well short of that. November and December of 2018 kind of burned me out. I did a bit in 2019 though…

Only 21 posts for the year!
I watched several movies on the Utah trip flights, so it’s a good time to review everything I’ve watched over the last month or two.
I guess it was a feel-good movie about following your dreams, but I only picked it because I had watched Captain Marvel a week or two before.
Solid addition to the Rocky series.
Do not get between a mother and her children.
Never really knew much about Queen before watching this and I really loved all of the music in the movie.
I managed to avoid spoilers for a week while I was out-of-town and was not disappointed in how they brought everything together for this chapter of the story.
Costner and Harrelson forme a great team in this incredible story.
