My review of 'Hannibal Rising' + more
Check out my cd reviews of Disco Biscuits, the John Popper Project and Ziggy Marley at Relix online. Also, read Mike Greenhaus' revealing review of Trey Anastasio's appearance at the 92nd St. Y in New York on Wednesday night (he admitted he's an addict). Read more about Trey at Celebstoner
My main project right now is Pot Culture: The A to Z Guide to Stoner Language and Life, a book I'm writing with my old friend and colleague Shirley Halperin. It will hit stores in the fall. Harry Abrams is the publisher and Eva Prinz our editor. Eva co-curated the Radical Living Papers exhibit - documenting the alternative press from 1965-1975 - at 436 W. 15 St. in New York. The exhibit runs through March 7.
I'm excited to announce that I've surpassed the 1,000-friend mark after eight months on MySpace
I'm also busily working on the High Times Party & Doobie Awards @ SXSW, scheduled for March 16 at Redrum (401 Sabine St.) in Austin, Texas. They'll be plenty of awards and bands throughout the day, from high noon to 6 pm. Scheduled so far: reggae newcomer Joseph Israel, Austin's own White Ghost Shivers and Hellapeno and Flaming Fire, featuring High Times managing editor Natasha Lewin. Check them all out on MySpace.
Lastly, allow me rave about The Sarah Silverman Program. The first two shows (it airs on Thursdays at 10:30 EST on Comedy Central) have been brilliant. Look for Stoner of the Year Doug Benson in the latest episode about Sarah's homeless friend, played by another stony favorite, Zach Galifianakis.
