You can’t go wrong with Cheech and Chong

Head in a vice.jpg

I was tempted to us the word bong in my rhyming title, but decided against it.

Damn head cold, I could feel it coming. It’s like having your head in a vice.

 I don’t get sick very often, I probably got this crap on my trip to Chicago.

Strange new germs out there (and I drank the water).

My wife and I usually do something cool together for our X-mas presents to each other.Spont Combust.jpg

 This years present is so cool, I’m afraid with my head cold and the news of this, I could spontaneously combust. It’s just too much.

Cheech n Chong Car.JPG Remember these dudes??

C’mon you know you do.

Before they did all of those funny movies, they were a stand-up comedy team touring the US and Canada. 

These two dudes pumped out a bunch of comedy records. Back in the day, everybody who was anybody had at least one. 

Below is my personal Cheech and Chong collection. There may be a few more records out there, but not many.

            The Cheech and Chong heads have removable skulls. For storage I guess? 

                          Notice the Big Bambu still has the original rolling paper.cnc collection1.jpg 
Hey we all age, so now they look like this, and have been touring the country with their stand-up comedy act. Tommy Chong’s wife Shelby is the opening act.

I was hoping that they would make a “Hitstop” 
 in Denver.

 
No special tickets or anything, I was just happy they added the third show. 
 

 It’s Sunday night Dec 21..An early X-mas present.

Their records are imbedded in my brain, as they were extremely popular when I was a teen in Canada. 

There you have it, another thing knocked off of my “List of things to do before I croak”. 

The Who.jpg
Led Zepplin, what’s up fellas? Not a “Whole lotta love”. 

If The Who can do it, so can you.  

I’ll probably do a special blog after the Cheech and Chong show dedicated to them.

Seeing this show is all I want for X-mas.

I don’t want to outright spoil what I got for my kids (they don’t read this blog in the offseason), but just in case, it rhymes with sockhand.

I think it will be a cool gift to play with the whole family. I’m already a Rockstar, have you seen my music video?? Check it out.

 Please don’t slam us. There’s a reason why this short little video clip is the only one us in existance. But hey, I’ve got a music video…Do you? 

I’m starting to feel the spirit. Just need to kick this head cold. I cant see Cheech and Chong with a foggy head now can I?…

Oh yea, my special announcement. Robert Harmon, If you read this or Zack’s Hamples blog    (listed on my side bar), you know of him.

Long time Coors field snagger, Barry Bonds fake ball, good dude.

Well Robert has decided to join forces with the Ranter, and he along with my buddies Jack (cheeser), and Andy (snagged two balls at a Rockies BP earlier this season) will be the crew for the Mobile Blogging Unit.

 What a freggin visual. It’s all about baseball baby.

 

Robert knows his way around the Tucson area well, it will be fun and an asset “?” :), to have him along. Thanks brotha.

Robert normally heads down to Tucson in his VW bus. But the bus is presently out of commission.

VW bus transaxle.jpgShe’s having some transaxle issues. If anyone knows where he can get an early 70’s transaxle at a good price. Send me a note.

Robert sure would appreciate it.

A few blog entries back I had put the question out there, “What makes you happy”.

Kylies picture.jpgKylie of Out of the “Field” Box fame, (located on my sidebar), sent in a few words and a picture of what makes her happy.

Here’s what she wrote:

Hey, man!  It’s Kylie. Here’s what makes me happy.
My first snow since 2004.  It has been snowing for about two hours now and it’s dying down, but I snagged a picture of it on my shirt to remember it.  Plus there’s a real live snowball in my freezer made from snow collecting on our table.  It all melted when it hit the ground but it was still supercool…Kylie

Thanks for sharing, the best part of what makes her happy is,  snow is free. You can see the tiny little flakes on her red shirt, very cool.  Enjoy your winter wonderland :) just kidding. Thanks for the picture Kylie.

 Everyone, thanks for your click, you made a choice and I’m glad you ended up here…D

Love Cheech & Chong! They were on the radio the other morning here in Boston and they were so funny! Have a great time at the show. I can’t wait to hear all about it!

Looking forward to hearing about the show.
Tommy Chong came to Milwaukee recently but Cheech hasn’t in some time. I thought Cheech married someone from Wisconsin…???
Anyway, say hi to Burt and Dolly for me : )
“Happy”

Love The Who reference in there. They are freakin amazing. Have fun at the Cheech and Chong show.

Julia, thanks, I’ll tell you all about it.
HB, I saw “The Who” at the Pepsi Center a while back. They were tight. I was glad I was able to catch that show. I went with two long time friends too. That made it even better..
Happster, dude I’m so ready to see this show. I’ve been waiting my whole life. They say no cameras, so that sucks. But you never know :) ….D

Love the Cheech & Chong collection. I seen Chong’s stand-up show about 10 years ago and couldn’t wait for the reunion. They were here in Niagara Falls (about an hours drive) casino about a month ago and I missed it because of work!!! Damn priorities are all messed up I guess. Still listen to the odd record every once in a while….Dave’s not here man!!

Iceman..LoL..I love the drive-in one, where they sneak in, by hiding in the trunk..classic…D
