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. 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.

  2. 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.
