Well, 4 for 4 so far this year in Sucking the 70's. Only one's been very late, I'd have preferred to get this one up yesterday but for whatever reason I procrastinated all day on Sunday and didn't get this beast done. Finished 'er up last night. I've had a lot of fun with this and I hope you enjoy the tunes and laughs you should get out of this. I've cited the movies samples I've used that were longer than a few seconds. All of the movies I recommend on various levels.
This is the second year I've done the 4/20 Holiday Show. I got the idea when I was a truck driver listening to Sirius Radio's Hardattak, and "High Times" writer Bobby Black, who also hosted a weekly Stoner Rock show called "Contact High" took over the airwaves that day and just jammed a bunch of rock. Of course, he had some high profile guests and general debauchery ensued. Now he did a good job with the music that day, though he really did seem to have a limited catalog, but he was able to take the focus off the music a bit with his access. Obviously I can't. So here we have 2 hours of kick-ass tunes, a little comedy and a lot of smoke.
As this is the 4/20 Holiday Edition of Sucking the 70's, I'm going to emphasize my recommendation for documentarian, and former Bill Hicks business partner, Kevin Booth's "How Weed Won the West." Along with throwing out recommendations for Booth's last movie "American Drug War: The Last White Hope" and the more comedic "Super High Me" from comedian Doug Benson and director Michael Blieden. The Booth films do a very good job of covering the current struggles for NORMLcy in this country. Admittedly there is no focus on some of the more legimiate concerns from the opposition, but as one would expect you will get plenty of laughs out of the standard, outrageous, opposition propaganda harpooned by film makers. I should point out that the film is hosted by Alex Jones. Now, in most cases where Jones is speaking I just shake my head at the NWO fearmongering. I may not agree with the man most of the time, but I cannot deny his effectiveness in this role.
