A favourite pod documentation / personal archeologist Ken AKA Scarborough Dude read a postcard i wrote/mailed to him some months back on his 793rd(!) episode of his musings released on June 11, 2020 called “DicksnJanes #793: Jesus and other stuff” – i am obv the “other stuff” / in other words: “Scarborough Dude thanks Uncle Weed, overreacts to current events, and talks about Jesus.”
Note: In the aforementioned postcard, I acknowledge his worthy intelligent endeavours to be personally translucent about his fantastically interesting life and intrepidly making content within “fuck stats, make art” point of view / do it for yourself, let others look over your shoulder.
Anyhow, i mean this i feel this is tremendously important and enjoyable – ergo: devoid of ads for mattresses or “men’s health products”, no network shout-outs, no plugs, no pleas for sub and reviews… just intelligent conversation about one man’s life, and interspersed with the music he’s enjoying. [He also wonders about WTF happend to me (all of it pals, allll of it happend / doing ok now, thanks).] Continue reading Curious Cameo: pod correspondence with “Scarbrough Dude”→
A promotional postcard for the HempenRoad film project Made while we were still in production, printed on 100% hemp cardstock paper (from Ecosource in Victoria ,BC) and mailed all over to wrangle up support and excitement about the project.
Note: the toll-free 888-UNC-WEED phone number and the Olywa.net/Uncleweed web address (before there was a domain).
The card itself was laid out from various mixed-media elements (including Eiji (rip) and I snapped by Ben Livingston i think) using an early version of Photoshop on a pirate mission at a Kinko’s (prob with Pete Word).
There is another glorious postcard and duplex paper made after the film was released which eventually (hopefully) will turn up (and possibly a higher-res scan of this one).

Fits handily in a rucksack and doesn’t use too much space on a shelf. It’s pretty! Order several.
