somewhere everywhere today, so you don’t want to read any more AMAZING LAUGH OUT LOUD FUNNY CRAZY SEXY COOL blog posts, do you? No, you want to get baked, put on the Discovery Channel, get more baked, eat some potato snacks, eat some red and green gummi bears (leaving the yellow and orange ones for when frenemies come over), get more baked, smoke a dozen couple cigarettes, coat your burning throat with a handful of Ricolas, find a taco truck, decide that the outside world is a little too scary at the moment, go back home, lay down in the middle of the living room on a fluffy rug, put on some old records–I’m partial to 70′s country, like Emmylou or Linda Ronstadt–get more baked, and pass out as the last light of the day creeps through the blinds, right?

One of the hotel partners is Dennis Peron, who coauthored Prop 215, California’s medical marijuana initiative. But it looks like the hotel’s already having financial troubles. A stoner hotel and sketchy finances? Sounds about right.
‘KUMAR’ ACTOR ROBBED AT GUNPOINT IN D.C. (TMZ) – Speaking of harshing one’s mellow, how weird is it that Kal Penn was robbed at gunpoint in D.C. on 4/20? And when I say “weird,” I mean…really fuckin’ terrifying. See what I mean about the outside world being a little too scary? Which is why you shouldn’t leave the warm and fuzzy confines of your living room and instead, watch…
THE TOP TEN STONER FILMS OF ALL TIME (Spike) – The Big Lebowski is #1. Start there.
