Laughing Buddha, Chocomel and Belgian Hash ~ Choogle On! #27

Slightly past 4:20, Uncle Weed and amigo Cousin Herb roll up fat doob of sticky Sativa in a Vancouver park and talk about Herb’s recent trip to Netherlands and Belgium.

Kind Nug from Barney's

Weed recounts a few of his exploits in the low-lands (as a backpacker in 1992, a Cannabis Cup judge in 2002 and passing through in 2005). They talk about Barney’s killer breakfast and award worthy ganja, fave coffee shops, the Van Gogh museum and Anne Frank house, bike rides plus anecdotes about hash-bearing friends in Brussels, great Thai food and addictive Chocomel.

This and That

bad guys in tie dyes
wild oats and pigs and goats
blow the coals
in that there hole
gates locked key lost
left in lurch so go to church
and tread the water little farther
kick it in pick it up
faraway slap bang slap dash
go dutch knee high break a bone
bust a gut tear it up
soup and nuts in a cup
marioni marconi macironi
stalemate tailormade
count to ten  there you go
read your bible so you will know
how to vibrate gesculate
emulate authorities won’t agree
cause you smoke the weed ain’t
no good find the quench
sing the birds trees rocks and things
till you ain’t no hungry
never gonna hurt
know you got the rubber
know you got the beat
platy eight maybe ten
never hurt again
oh oh
hoe hoe dee doe
here we go
stand up sit down
in a corner on the wall
in a snit on a wall o.k.
thumbs up pinch hit
in the morning
you are jah person
jah people say
don’t turn them away
don’t take it hard
green thumb
big jump
quantum leap missing link
kinda dumb dumb dumb
chewing gum
cakes and ale
lion’s share i don’t care
grease your hair
grease your palm
cross cross your palm hair down
naked truth bet your boots
off the shelf raincheck
sugardaddy kinda crazy
stegasaurus brontasaurus
me a saurus you a saurus
politics were made to bore us
strike a bargain strike a hat
hats off to overalls bowling balls
see the stars stars sky
knee high same song
regular guy walk a rope
light a spark bark bark
trailer park big wheel
paper plates and sewer grates
i’m as mad as that hard times
rip offs seperate ways
sewer man super man mr. sunshine
pow wow show down square off
call the shots
pretty girls love your thighs
got the hots no words
world so good polka dots
love love hand in glove
just like new york robert bork
parts is parts strengh is strengh
less confusion less carousing
glad rags and witty jabs
down at he bottom of the well
where is water is not
i was too afraid
try to frustrate cup is full overfull
got to go
loaves and fish beer and beans
in the belly of the whale
where you send gotta go
all the way to mexico
rampage high jinks suits and ties
and butterflies butterflied
yo -yos yo -yo
screaming meenies
beatnik beenies
hairy chests and skating rinks
whitewashed rednecks
iguanas and lizard kids
red red rose bloom boom
watch it bloom
cheap box wine
hoe dee doe there you go

Worm on the Slickrock

Crawl across my foot
my little worm friend.
Together we’ll bake our
wrinkly bodies in the sun.
I’ve nothing else to do all day,
or for an hour, but to
share your sudden life,
sitting, wrinkling.
Just because I want to.
And I can.

I’ll help you pass little worm.
Sweep you in a magic, dizzying way,
back to your island of lichen, moss
and various fungus hidden.
Over rocks, twigs and hills of toes,
for no other reason than none.

But I promise silence
my little friend,
I don’t wish to quake you,
my quietest voice being thunder.

ca. 1990

Notes to a Pig

And furthermore, once you are dead,
ground up and rotting for years,
long after your rancid flesh is
devoured by greasy,
pimply breakfast eaters,
even after two or four more pig
generations have farted, wheezed and belched
through their seasons,
your fat, entrails and miscellaneous gristle,
will still be sitting on a shelf,
in a flourescent store,
in a box that says
on it.

circa  1990

To the pretty girl in the nudie magazine (I would like to take you to Moab)

Now that I know you, pretty girl.
Now that I know you better than
any other curious man,
I’d like to be nervous and call you,
and call you your real name
(not Candi, I’ll boldly assume).

I’d like to bring you flowers
or other corny things.
Or we could see a movie
(you said you liked movies).
Maybe then a hockey game.

I could show you my Volkswagen bus,
and I could take you to Moab or Disneyland
or whatever would make you happy.

Then maybe I’d kiss you on the cheek.

Matt Cooke, Soon to be a Canucks Outsider subscriber?

Matt “The Pressure Cooker” Cooke was shilling Vancouver Suns outfront the Seabus Station at Lonsdale Quay.  The fascist minimum wage Sun employee wouldn’t let Cooker give me newspaper he signed for me unless i coughed up a donation (i refused to pay for their pablum – plus i had NOT a penny of cash).  Apparently it is all a ruse to encourage kids to read (well at least they aren’t teaching kids to read Tony Gallagher).

Matt Cooke wants you to read

Matt grinned for a snapshot on my high-end camera phone (the finest VGA going) and I (admitedly somewhat awkwardly) told him about the podcast.  “The Canucks Outsider, It’s about the Canucks on the other side of the glass sorta – what’s its like to be a fan – beers, expensive tickets, history, new guys whatever …”

As I headed off to my ferry boat, he asked again, “Canucks Outsider, right?”

“Yup, Look it up,” I replied, “and Cooker, … be careful in practice eh.”

Might as well subscribe Matt – It’s free so jump on in, the water’s fine!


Pre-season Prognostication from the Park – Canucks Outsider #38

With the 2006-07 season looming, Canucks Outsider host Dave Thorvald checks in with Mark the Motivational Speaker.

Canucks Outsider #38 (28:40, .mp3)

Canucks Outsider #39From a park bench in view of the Garage and mischievous dogs, they offer a quick and sloppy off-season wrap-up, random preseason predilections and studious regular season prognostication as well as highly speculative playoff hunches.  Besides getting to know the many new Canucks, they discuss topics from Coach Glen Hanlon to the art of face-offs to GM Garth Snow.
