Watching Weed

It’s that time of the year again. Yes, Spring is near! I don’t know about you but this time of year is the perfect time to start your new crop! So, what are you waiting for? Get yourself a flowerpot, a few seeds, some water, some dirt, a green thumb and some sunshine!

As you can see in the photo below, a few of my seedlings have hatched and are reaching for the sun. Okay, that was some lame poetic prosing but I think you get the point. In a few months I’ll be smoking that little bastard! And you?

Ode To Amy Winehouse

Anyone who knows me knows I’m not the lovey-dovey type. A load of years in Fed whittled down many emotions. I did find myself emotional over the death of a woman I briefly knew but felt like I knew a lifetime. Yeah, drugs will have that effect sometimes. Anyway, Amy Winehouse is dead and I’m bummed. Here’s a little rant, more for me (as always) than for anyone else.




Bong’s Got The Blues

It was June 7th, 2010. I was out and about on foot, wearing my disguise as I most often do when out daytime.

I came across Blues Smoke Shop by accident while looking for a new place to live. As many of you know, after PROP 19 sucked ass, I got all depressed, lost faith in this lame ass country (again) and fake passed my way to Holland, where I’ve lived the last months between Den Haag and Rotterdam.

I’m back in the States now and since recently returning with the hottie I met overseas (seen in the last pic) I went back in to that smoke shop just on a whim and though I’ve walked by it dozens of times over the last year, I never even poked my head inside.

I’m damn glad I did. Since a very few weeks ago they have expanded their stock. Not only are they carrying an excellent selection of smoking accessories, they even cater to medicinal needs. Sweet!

As of late, I’ve spent a lot of time at Star Budz, likely because the employees are cute chicks that bake. BSS is closer to me and y’all know how lazy I can be.

Here’s the place from the outside.

From the outside the place reflects the trippy world around it since the windows are cover with some reflective material. It’s pretty cool.

Anyway, if you find yourself in North Hollywood, lookup Vincent at Blues Smoke Shop. I think they’ve been there like, forever already. I was medicated then, however I think he said 13 years? Can that be right? Does it matter?

The interior is warm, inviting and clean. I’ll see if I can get in there and take some photos for the site. Stay tuned as you’ll be the last to know. What? At least I’m honest!

Enter the hottie.
