Beware the Ides of March

Standard

Idesss

 

I had heard that phrase for years & I knew it was from  Shakespeare but every year when March came around I never knew when that was…well turns out it was last week so we dodged that bullet but the Ceasar salad dressing got the knife. I swear your friends are so immature, lol.

Born Again Pagan Vegan

Standard

rooster

Yesterday was Chinese New Years, it’s the Year of the Rooster, I knew I was feeling cocky for some reason. So after years of being a lacto-vegetarian, I went full fledged Born Again Pagan Vegan. It’s been a month. I had already given up meat and milk that was easy. There are substitutes like veggie burgers and almond milk, but I was still craving cheese. That’s stuff is addictive and I was all strung out. Well there are vegan cheese substitutes too and now they are easily accessible, check at your local grocer. I feel better already. I’ve lost weight. I have more energy.

You could go gay or shave your head and join a strange religious cult and no one would bat an eye but if you stop eating animals products people go out of their minds. ” Are you getting enough protein? ” they say, duh.

Your entire childhood, your parents were so concerned that you eat your vegetables and now that you do they’re like ” you’re looking anemic, why don’t you eat a nice steak!  are you sure you’re getting enough protein? “

Yes I am I assure you. Then I patiently explain to them why we all must elect to reduce and eventually eliminate animal products from our diets not only for our own health but for the health of the planet. Even if animal protein served us in our collective past, in today’s world factory farming is unsustainable and if they want grandchildren hopefully they’ll get it…before it’s too late.

Space Hippie 101

Standard

Space Hippie ( the guy that writes this blog ) was incarnated in physical form in the latter half of the 20th Century on a little planet called Earth. ( third stone from the Sun, go to Mars and take a left it’ll be on your right after the 7 -11. )

” Space Hippie was a nickname I got in college and I could never live it down so I made a career out of it. ” Ostensibly there to study music and film, he learned so much more. ” I figured if Jim Morrison went to film school maybe I should give it a try.”

” One day while naively practicing Sex Magick on acid, he inadvertently released his kundalini. The sleeping serpent that resides in the root chakra. These are Sanskrit terms I later learned to describe my experiences, not something I was consciously trying to do or something I would recommend anyone try to do. There are reasons all the sacred texts warn against it and it is extremely dangerous. It’s too late for me but stay in school, get a good education so you can get good job and work and slave your life away to feed your family and keep a roof over your head. The sky is my roof now, the stars my only friends. If I never see any of you again, later. “

Currently between incarcerations, he can be found playing at tiki bars on the beach or teaching yoga in the park.

now that’s Gangsta

Having survived another year on the lowest rung of the “entertainment” ladder, that shark infested cesspool known as the “local scene,” where you either play “cover tunes” in bar and restaurants for little or no money or you play your “originals” for no money period, I must say these bar owners are the real Gangstas.

Florida Passes Medical Marijuana!

Standard

Nov. 2016 – Florida passes Medical Marijuana…finally! as did Arkansas & North Dakota. Arizona, Maine, Massachusetts, Nevada and California legalized altogether. Take a look at the map below, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. (  ;

marijuana-map-1edit

The win in FL is important because FL is the only Southern State which has a Constitution that allows for Voter Referendums. It’s been almost 20 years since I travelled to Tallahassee ( and the whole state) as Associated Director of the Coalition Advocating Medical Marijuana ( C.A.M.M. ) with glaucoma patient, Elvy Musikka and her 300 joints a months from the Federal Government* on the very first FL referendum tour. It took this long but it finally passed. Now it’s time to petition the Federal Government to reschedule and legalize nationally.

This is just the beginning and with Trump about to take office, I’m sure there is bound to be more battles ahead but progress has been made and there’s no turning back now.

* while Marijuana on a Federal level is considered Schedule 1 – meaning no medical usage, they still provide prescriptions to patients grandfathered in when they ended the Compassionate Use Act, read more here:
