In honor of 4/20 today, check out this remix by Eclectic Method called “420 Mix” which features memorable marijuana references from popular films, like Half Baked, Friday, Pineapple Express, Ted, The Big Lebowski, and more, as well as from South Park, with clips from Snoop Dog and Richard Nixon. The 2-minute video is set to a sample of Dusty Springfield’s “Son of a Preacher Man.”
In honor of 4/20, a day in which all things green and sticky make the rounds in a celebratory fashion, a day in which people across the nation turn on, tune in, and drop everything with a chill pill in the form of the mind-numbing and relaxing herb — that’s right, the hemp, sensemilla, rope, reefer, pot, and countless other synonyms for weed, but mainly known as marijuana. With today comes most appropriately a new animated cartoon by the comedy kings of the whole lifestyle, Cheech and Chong, entitled [what else?] Cheech and Chong’s Animated Movie.
Hilariously rendered and perpetually red-eyed, the cartoon looks to be a stoner-fest extraordinaire and shows the duo in their most well-known guises, those characterizations of the innocuous, yet dumbstruck and low key hilarious characters they parlayed to much success in the 1970s. Directed by Branden Chambers and Eric D. Chambers, the film is already playing in select cities and will have a full scale DVD and Blu-ray release come April 23rd, at all “dealers” (no pun intended and not just head shops mind you).
There’s a lot of interaction with the team planned for today on various social media sites, like Reddit, Facebook, Twitter, and more, beginning at 11am ET. Wake and bake with the team and ask them some of your favorite questions, hang out on Google with them, and even check out some clips at a Livestream Event, all happening during the day today. The full schedule is below.
In honor of today being 4/20 and the time being exactly 4:20pm (on the East Coast that is), we thought you’d share this video called “Shit Stoner Girls Say,” directed and edited by Friend of Doom Jessy Jamboree.
Watch the video here below.
Aside from doing a lot of smoking and eating, the stoner girls try to decide which type of weed to smoke before seeing Titanic 3D and also talk about seeing Inception.
In honor of today being 4/20, the deal of the day over at TFAW was Ziggy Marley’s Marijuanaman Of course it sold out immediately, but you can still purchase Marijuanaman over at Amazon for even less! It’s currently on sale for $18.24 (that’s 27% off the list price of $24.99).
Released by Image Comics on April 20, 2011, this 48-page full-color oversized hardcover graphic novel was written by Joe Casey with art by Jim Mahfood and based on a character conceived of by Ziggy Marley.
The Big Bag of Weed Weed: 420 things you didn’t know (or remember) about Cannabis
Written by I.M. Stoned The Quotable Stoner
Written by Holden Blunts The Danktionary
Written by Will B. High Adams Media
Release date: October 15, 2011
Cover Price: $19.95
Fittingly wrapped in a large Ziploc baggie, The Big Bag of Weed is both a delightful trilogy of gateway books for the novice stoner and a buzz-inducing trip down memory lane for the veteran pothead. Written with the hip clarity of Chuck Klosterman and the accomplished vernacular of Snoop Dog, these three booklets are a hilarious and informative tribute to the richness and immensity of pot culture in America.
Authorship is variously attributed to Holden Blunts, Will B. High, and I.M. Stoned, the kind of Hancocks you’ve encountered on bathroom stalls. Don’t worry though. The quality of writing elevates it far above the juvenile and introductory material makes sure that these books aren’t just for the chronic weed smoker.
