Greenwich Village Rooftop NYC Diesel Smokedown ~ Choogle On! #40

Late night hoots on a historic Greenwich Village rooftop with Uncle Weed talking with a Canadian friend about NYC scenes and buildings plus 9/11 recollections, vacuum tubes, ferries, oreo cookies, the last ink factory, Hudson fireworks, hockey lock-out, law school ideas, propane tanks and lawnmowers, 2002 Cannabis Cup (see pics if you are Uncle Weed’s ‘friend’ on Flickr) and minor police incidents plus a few confessions (lousy joint roller and typist) and a self-aggrandizing plug for Zhonka Surfbreaks free wi-fi for the people!

  1. I don’t really know how i stumbled across this podcast? I was sitting at my desk, high above midtown. Checking out some tunes on Seeqpod.com. I live in Greenwich village and was wondering if there were any songs named after the locale. I stumbled across a podcast.

    It was as if a couple of my friends and I had recorded a conversation on a sunny Sunday afternoon.

    Im a 24 year old who moved to New York from North Vancouver BC. Word for word, topic to topic its the same conversations my friends and i have had so many times back home. Drop me an email if you boys happen to be enjoying some “Al Green” on the roof again.

    Keep it up boys.

  2. Thanks Ben. Assuming you haven’t listened to the back catalog yet, you are gonna have a blast as more shows are from Vangroovy than anywhere else – toking in the alleys and clubs and such and spieling about social issues – should give you a good west coast flashback. Also shows from San Fran, London, Austin Texas for SXSW and so on.

    Heading out to get a buzz on and record myself voting (for the Greens natch) today and then will fill out my USA absentee ballot (i am dual citizen). Stay tuned for that one – my production flow is a bit slow as i just had an emergency appendectomy but getting back in action.

    Stoked that you picked up on the conversational style and you’ll find a variety of characters in each episode – usually people i meet while traveling or characters from the neighbourhod.

Whatcha think?
