Cannabis, weed, or whatever you call it, has been a part of popular culture and entertainment for centuries. A lot has been said about this plant; discover here what stands out from the rest when it comes to weed on the screen!

Making a Story

These stories have documented the rise of the cannabis industry from obscurity to legitimate business ventures through the CBD products that do not have THC – the psychotropic ingredient that gives the feeling of being high. The latest installments will have you considering the multiple benefits of starting a business with certified CBD hemp seed for sale and making it in the industry yourself.

The Business of Drugs (2020)

This documentary premiered on Netflix and exclusively speaks about the business side of the cannabis plant. It explores the opportunities that are available from the growing of the plant to the creation of high-tech by-products. A far cry from the Cheech & Chong type of production and narrative associated with cannabis. A great choice for those looking for a seriously in-depth look at what goes on behind the scenes of a weed business.

The Future of Weed: High Country (2013)

A production of journalism and reality content Vice, The Future of Weed: High Country gives us an inside peek into all the technology invested in making cannabis products. With a little bit of history and science sprinkled on, the documentary shows just how far the interest of the health industry, with its science, has impacted advancements and taken weed to another level. This one is for the tech-savvy people and those that want to look at the future of cannabis.

Pineapple Express (2008)

An explosive, hilarious story of two unlikely friends, danger, and weed, starring James Franco and Seth Rogen. This unpredictable comedy was an immediate success, and stands out in weed films, for its action storyline and solid final results. Pineapple Express is one of those films that has you wondering where your weed limits are, so you don’t end up in the same trouble as the characters. Great for relaxing on the couch with some snacks, with a lot of laughs and excitement.

I admit that I was a little bit late to the party ins discovering Broad City, mostly because I had no clue it existed for the first couple of seasons. But now I’m hooked on this crazy, insanely edgy Comedy Central show about the absurdist adventures of best friends Abbi and Ilana, who may or may not be lesbians! It’s like Girls but without the HBO budget, and with less gratuitous nudity! A new season of Broad City starts on Wednesday, September 13th, 2017, so set those DVRs! But first, check out this article about a new line of Broad City Sex Toys!

Eye On Design: Hullabaloo Mondrian-Inspired Hi Brows Boots

These extremely rare, retro-vintage Hi Brows Boots were worn by one of the GoGo dancers on the 60s-era TV show, Hullabaloo. Made of white vinyl with red and blue vinyl panels and black vinyl piping, the red and blue color block design was inspired by the non-representational paintings of Dutch artist, Piet Mondrian. They are low heeled and below the calf in height, with a back metal zipper at the back. Why these boots originally sold for just a few dollars per pair, they can now fetch as much as $700 or $800 on eBay.

Hullabaloo was a Pop Rock weekly variety show that ran from 1965 to 1966 (two seasons), NS was broadcast on the NBC network. As with ABC TVs Shindig, which began 4 months earlier, this series combined the musical trends of the day, The British Invasion, Detroit’s Motown sound and the merging Folk Rock trend. Unlike Shindig, this series featured a segment from Great Britain hosted by The Beatles‘ manager Brian Epstein, who presented “up and coming” groups. The weekly hosts, at NBC ‘s Burbank studio, included George Hamilton, Roger Smith, Noel Harrison, Paul Anka and Sammy Davis Jr.

This cleverly-name-drink menu was spotted outside McGee’s Pub, the bar that served as the inspiration for McLaren’s Pub on the hit TV series How I Met Your Mother. I wonder if they also host a Trivia Night?

McGee’s Pub and Restaurant is Located at 240 West 55th Street (Between Broadway and 8th Avenues) in Midtown Manhattan.

In 1965, the Arco toy company (later acquired by Mattel) manufactured a Flintstones Bowling Game with pins molded in the likeness of Fred Flintstone. Fred sure did love to bowl.

24 Drinking Game

24 New Season

Hey what’s up. A new season of the mysteriously popular TV show 24 starts tonight and I’m not that excited about it, as I have never been a fan. But now that the shittiest TV show I would ever admit to watching, The Following, is done for the season I think I’ll be DVRing this thing just to see what all the fuss is about. Because, Kiefer Sutherland.

Which brings me to this Jack Bauer 24 Drinking Game that my friend Nick posted on his rad blog, The Littlest Winslow, which I think everyone should play while watching the show. Because, drinking! Read the rules of the 24 Drinking Game at This Link!

The Beatles On Record Comes to The History Channel!

Beatles B&W

Even though 10:00 PM is not exactly “too late” to stay awake, everyone I know has so much going on with pre-Thanksgiving preparations that it would be a shame to conk out early and miss The Beatles On Record, a new documentary which will premiere broadcast on The History Channel Wednesday, November 25th at 10:00 PM!

Here’s a little synopsis from The Beatles Dot Com:

The Beatles On Record charts The Beatles’ extraordinary recording journey from “Please Please Me” to the epic Abbey Road LP and reveals how they developed as musicians, matured as songwriters and created an enduring body of work that pushed the boundaries of studio recording, changing the course of musical history and popular culture. Narrated entirely by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ringo Starr, and Sir George Martin, The Beatles On Record features over 60 songs, rarely seen footage and images from The Beatles’ archives along with never-before-heard outtakes of conversation from the original recording sessions. The result is an intimate look at the creative process behind each of the band’s Abbey Road Studios masterpieces. The documentary is directed by Bob Smeaton, who directed the landmark Beatles Anthology series and created mini-documentaries for The Beatles’ recently released re-mastered albums on CD!”

I am so excited to see this program, and I’m sure you are, too! So, don’t forget to set your DVR’s to record the History Channel (Channel 40 for Time Warner Cable subscribers, Channel 740 in HD) at 10:00 PM Wednesday. The program reruns a bunch of times throughout the next few days (the Beatles Official Website actually refers to additional airings on “later dates across A&E Television Networks”), so if you space out, check local listings for additional opportunities to catch what will surely be an awesome show! Because the Beatles are awesome!
