AMY WINEHOUSE’S documentary hits theaters THIS FRIDAY …. AND why her DEMOS were destroyed .

This is bittersweet.. I have been waiting for this but I AM ALSO STILL HEARTBROKEN.. oh Amy,  why just.(sigh) ………..😦

30WINEHOUSE-articleLargeSoul bearing chanteuse , Amy Winehouse transitioned from this life in  2011; her demons finally got the best of her after a both public and private battle with life, shit, dope and more shit. We loved her for her scars as well as her gifts.  Amy left us with  gems beyond measure, she released an immense catalog of  work in her mere 27 years.  Winehouse left a legacy and made a lane of her own, she created her own IMPRINT; her work will soar with the legends after we are long gone.   This Asif Kapadia  directed, Cannes approved, documentary “Amy” is a compilation of over 100 interviews. The cohesive story is crafted by  piles of video footage, home movie clips and anecdotes and testimonials from some of Amy’s collaborators, Yasiin Bey, Mark Ronson, Pete Doherty , friends and family members  This project was initially started as a conceptual  marriage between Krishwerkz Entertainment, the label (UNIVERSAL U.K.) and the Winehouse family but where Mitch (Amy’s dad)  wanted to keep it cleaned up and genteel, Kaskadia and Co.  wanted to add the edgier nuances.   Mitch Winehouse has since announced that his family  has nothing to do with the film anymore ” It is both misleading and filled with basic untruths”.  Joe Cascarelli of the NY Times offers an in depth expose of the film here 


It is unclear to me if they want to present the “ugly” to put the butts in the seats or are they trying to connect the audience authentically with her actual struggle .  It will be scary to meet the demon that actually WON Amy’s fight but like every horror film we just HAVE TO SEE IT.. Amy never did conquer that unholy war she was so entrenched in. The battles to be free,  relationship woes, the clichéd “drug and alcohol” battle , the public scrutiny and the struggle to keep it original in an industry full of factory cut outs.   The culmination resulted in , well.. THE END RESULT .  Amy may be a cautionary tale of the wicked recording industry and it’s EXPECTED pits and foes but I believe or at least want to believe that it will also showcase and highlight Amy’s true production , writing and creating skills. Amy had an awesome sense of humor and a wicked modska/ rude girl/ vintage R&B/ jazz/ torch type  steez. We want to see her in all her Fred Perry glory.  We want to see her lamenting over Dinah Washington and Sarah Vaughn.  I want to see her joking with Mos Def and Nas.  I want to see what was beneath the beehive (literally and figuratively) , according to Kasadia this is the directive . He wants to break down the bullshit and the caricature and let you into the raw and actual .. Amy hits theaters nationally July 3, this Friday .movies-amy-poster

In other Amy news ..   It is reported that the potential demo renderings for her much anticipated unfinished third LP were destroyed. . Intentionally .. check out that story after the beat

Yes Crockpot Coconut Lime Chicken…

Crockpot-Coconut-Lime-Chicken-1It’s summertime , and clearly it’s too damn hot to be toiling over the stove or oven all day.. The perfect remedy for the girl on the go , or the homemaker who also happens to hold down a full time job.. coupled with a hungry family ; A CROCK POT.. ( hears angels sing) …. The Crock Pot has been the key for me , my mama , her mama , yo mama etc, they have all utilized this amazing piece of culinary PLUG IN wizardry for beans and greens while they sleep in. It makes Oxtails and Beef rib tips just slide off the bone. Nothing can compare to the free feeling of simply  tossing some seasonings, veggies, and meat of choice .. ( or not) into that big ole pot , simmer it on low and carry on with the day ( or take your ass to sleep)  .  It works for Sunday dinners and those quick weekday dinners after work , when you are too tired to look at a pot and too HUNGRY to stand for 30 minutes cooking ANYTHING.. Cook while you work or twerk .. but just let it sim simmahh by itself for a few hours.. During the summer we will be hooking you guys up with all kinds of Crock Pot ideas.  We cater to the comfortable stoner here . we need breaks and we also like food HA!!    The wonderful people over at The CrockPot Gourmet have prepared a delicious Coconut Lime Crock Pot Chicken that is truly divine.. just pair it up with a quick salad and there you have it .. Dinner is served !!!

The entire “Norwegian Pearl” will be chock full of zombies, games, functions, cosplay contests and cast members, (Sasha, Bob and Carl will also be there to name a few) .    I personally am in fact a Walking Dead super fan but i don’t know if I could deal with constant zombies on a fucking OCEAN LINER.. just me,  zombies , and the friggin OCEAN.. I don’t know .. The event is being called The Walker Stalker Cruise and this gig is GOIN UP .. i just think it will have to go up sans me though… tothedomeImagine leaving the boat club/bar/situation by yourself drunk as hell trying to get to the cabin, you gotta pee, you haven’t smoked any kush , and here come Davy Jones and some other gnawed up looking sumbitch .. On the other hand it’s a cruise .. so it’s probably gonna be fun..  I mean i would rather run from a half eaten ACTOR zombie than one of those blue tooth in the ear,  silk royal blue twin set, Huarache sandal wearing muhfuckas on the Funk Fest Cruise or something .  On some real stuff though , if you are brave and require this type of horror at sea to feel complete … check out  The Walker Stalker Cruise website for questions and to purchase tickets, while they still have them…

P.R.Royal OG

Royal Og and Crumble

Royal OG with a lil Snoop OG crumble

Ok.. so sometimes a bitch cannot afford any of my lil cute 90 dollar a gram boutique bud providers or my favorite delivery situation.  My light bill might have been particularly aggressive that week or some other monetary bullshit went down and messed with my MEDICINE BUDGET ..Ya know.. the fund had been tampered with lol..  When the coin has been compromised and shit is tight, my people at KUSHMART always come through in a CLUTCH.   This spot has specials like Crazy 88’s and 5 gram TOP SHELF strains for minimal donations. They also offer BOGO deals EVERYDAY… so you can literally come in with a ten-dollar donation and leave with 2 GRAMS of good herbage. They also offer incentive programs for rewards, they have THE OG Rick Simpson oil. (which is hard to find), all kinds of waxes, crumbles and oils, their concentrate section is very large, in fact this is one of the LA homes for Kurupt’s Moon Rock… I am truly a pot snob and I couldn’t believe what I was able to get with a mere 40 Buck donation.. and hell if you need to donate less than that , you can STILL find a decent strain. This place comes through when the budget might not be on super fat … when you need to cop , FOR THE WHOLE WEEK with a little bit of nothing. You can also come here though when your pockets are ON MAYWEATHER status and you are only buying THE MOST QUALITY OF QUALITIES, the highest echelon of the KINE … I am just saying their price points are dope for the quality of the herb, you will get, if you are on a budget.  OH BUT THEY GOT THE LOUD THOUGH .. they are not just a budget spot ,let me be clear.

pr royal og 2Quality can never be placed in detriment, even with minimal ends and this local spot is guaranteed to have what you need. If you require a very high-end Kushington or a superb Indica Dominant Hybrid, if your preference is straight Sativa or you want cooking shake or butter, this spot here is your gig. Kushmart  has an impressive array of edibles; popcorn, brownies, Kiva Bars, Cheeba Chews, Gummy Bears even medicated sodas and beverages.   IT’S THE MART.. so whatever it is, herb related , it is HERE .It runs very concise, professional and quick , IF you know what you want already. The budtenders are friendly and seem to be capable and knowledgable of their strains .LOL.. BELIEVE ME . I AM THE ASSHOLE PATIENT. i need to know everything about the strain, “who it’s pappy” , what seed, what soil , it’s a hybrid of what, is that the CBD to THC ratio for today or is this old, have you smoked it , what’s the bouquet?????  I am kidding but I do like to know what’s up before i donate. I need for the herb to be sticky and soft, pungent and if it’s an OG I need the full body taste at the end.. I CAN’T BE FRONTED ON in the herb department and I always get what I need at Kushmart.



We actually medicate here at this blog,  it’s not just about being HIGH .. we use it  ( and get high, of course ) but we heal ourselves from our various ailments and it’s important that your budtender handle this process exactly like that, it is not the homies bud house , but a place where people who suffer can get their meds in peace.They have really cool people who work there and the atmosphere is lovely. Good music, quick assistance, knowledgeable budtenders, friendly faces, patient PATIENTS, lol.. this spot gets an A PLUS… KUSHMART JARMy favorite strains there are the staple Kushmart OG, The Matt’s P.R. (which you can always get a good deal on and this high-powered P.R. Royal OG that appears to be a mix of a HEAVY OG and a subtle P.R and the effects are ROYAL. This strain is not one that you will get on the BOGO or 5 GRAM deal BUT .. it’s a really awesome donation for a 3.5.. TREAT YO SELF .. SHOOT .  I enjoy their Snoop Og crumble as well and I do grab a lil bit of Moon Rock from time to time I always grab one 180MG Vanilla Chai Kiva Bar and a pack of RAWS…   so .. yeah .. !

Go Check out the good people of Kushmart .    It’s worth the experience.  Here is what I was listening to while blowing trees and writing this blog.. you know .. so you can feel it.. HAHAHAA


stannisTo all you daddies .. goddaddies , cat daddies,  ..  grown men that women call their daddy’s , pimps, playas, hustlers, grandpappy’s, stepdaddies, adoptive daddies, and two dad home daddies….

Birkenstocks .. sans the tree to HUG!!!

BIRKENSTOCKS ARE BACK… omg.. and they aren’t your composting , high school biology teacher’s kicks ANYMORE…


birkenstock spike

Birkenstock originals

Yes , the shoe once  reserved for tree huggers and those of the granola and patchouli  ILK have risen from the Acapulco Gold formed ashes like a phoenix and came through to represent … BIRKENSTOCKS ,the most controversial shoe on the planet.. Families and friendships have been divided for decades,  upon debating their ugliness or efficiency as a shoe..

 A few years back I had an awesome pair of Michael Kors metallic pink joints that I wore until they DIED … there was no repairing them .. so I played taps and moved on ( sniff , sniff) .. I still have them though .. JUST TO SAY .. 10 YRS AGO i rocked Birkenstocks BITCHES ( i was in the 2nd or 3rd wave of the return) … IN METALLIC PINK.. observe this.. ok… but I digress.. birkenstocks the loop These cork bottomed arguably attractive beauties have been around since the 60’s.. I promise you that your mom or grandma, (depending on your age) . was pissing in the fields at Woodstock rocking some friggin BIRKIES dude….    and now you can get them any , shape , design, color or fabric….THERE ARE JELLY BIRKENSTOCKS… Sit with that for a quick cute second..


birkenstocks-eva-chen-lead-pic the gloss dot comIn LA, they sell pyramid studded Birkenstocks at THE SLAUSON SWAP MEET .. no really .. THEY HAVE HIT THE HOOD with a fierce fleeky intensity so, whether you are ‘FUCKIN UP SOME COMMAS’ or in the “Age of Aquarius”  the Birkenstock revival is upon us and YES THEY ARE ACTUALLY CUTE … and comfy as shit ..  I can’t front.. I never thought I would see my sistas from around the way slidin out of the mani/pedi situation donning a pair of cork bottomed hippie sandals .. NEVER THOUGHT.. but the day has arrived…    As cute as some of these are there is no WAY you could be apprehensive, so run out and in the VINTAGE WORDS OF BIG SEAN ” go in and get ya some” …..

Birkenstock/ Givenchy



I noticed the low key ,subtle resurgence of this shoe last summer. I saw that they were casually being rocked by quite a few laid back , yoga induced, hipsters but not in an obivous way.. ya know but instead more of , like, on the way to Ashtanga Yoga or your V-Steam appointment or some shit like that … I noticed this spring though that people were rocking these things in places other than Whole Foods or Farmer’s Market.   I was noticing Birkenstocks in prints, floral, outstanding colorways, HIGH end.. Low End…



I MEAN .. they are back…   Everyone from Birkenstock ( THE OG’S) to Givenchy is serving up some type of Birkenstock or “inspired by” sandal… ranging from 15 to several hundred dollars.. for comfort and of course FASHION DAHLIN!!!!… .. OH and it’s also popular to really get throwed and toss on some comfy socks to compliment your joints. I am not sure how long we will have with this trend.. I mean are they here forever LIKE THE REVIVAL OF THE LEGGING, ( throws hands to heavens a la Ruby Dee in Jungle Fever) … or will it be a trend like so many others and fade away after SUMMER OF 2015, as for me… this here is FINALLY .. a fashion trend i can get with I mean how can we not enjoy .  “GO TO THE GROCERY STORE CHIC”… or .. “Mother Stoner Couture” .. LOL… that’s right up my alley …  I am always down to represent for the White Rabbit around this bitch … ( lights joint)       …😉

Take your FOOD into THE POOL.. HURRAY!!!!!

pizzapoolWhile Winter has finally come in Westeros, Summer is only days away HERE  in our part of world… . When invoking the name of the four seasons; Summer is probably the most beloved and celebrated.. Yes, It’s a time for Sunshine, BBQ’s , bikinis, board shorts and swimming Pools!!

No worries about Whitewalkers right now while the sun is” beatin down on my basebal hat”, my concern is staying chill because it will get hot as 3 dragons breathing fire in some places.  You can always cool down in the pool or FIND SOME FUCKING SHADE. Ha! Then again if you can get to the pool, beach or a body of water to your liking then may I suggest the newest CRAVE of a WAVE……FOOD FLOATIES!!!!!


There’s all sorts of snacks and treats you can float on. They didn’t have this stuff when I was a kid. So I’m totally fascinated by all of it. It’s all very cute. I’ve already imagined myself floating on a slice of pizza or perhaps a watermelon.  I hope a pineapple food floatie is made omg, I’d be ecstatic as i LOOOVEEE PINEAPPLE lol but until then I’ll float on anyone of these. They have many varieties ranging from the inexpensive kiddie toy , to the more advanced , pricey adult pool accoutrement ,like the remote control drink and snack caddy, to an inflatable, floatable BEER PONG STATION along with floating bars and islands that are larger than living rooms, ALL, for your pool.. … .  You can find most of these pool pieces at your local department or home specialty based store like , Wal-Greens, Wal-Mart, Target and/or Home Depot.  You may also find a large range of inexpensive fun pool accessories at Rite Aid, Lowes or Bartell’s. If you are really a poolside G.. you can order yourself a pool Donut while posted up in YOUR POOL, floating on a slice of pizza, smoking a joint and drinking a Mimosa delivered via pool caddy .. HA!!! ..  Check out Amazon or Ebay for some ONLINE good deals if you prefer to kick back and shop ..

That 3 Girl Classic Situation PART 1.. MADAME X *FLASHBACK FRIDAY*

Original Post date .. Feb/ 2012

This post is an ode to the 3 girl groups of my choice.. SO.. let’s serve up a little VINTAGE..  Madame X..  AND LATER..  some Vanity 6.. (I am an OG .. I DON’T FUCK WITH APPOLONIA 6) well i did like A MILLION MILES but that was the BRENDA OF IT ALL ..LOL..anyway class today’s lesson is.. about :MADAME X

.Madame X released “Just That Type of Girl“, their first single from the self titled album Madame X on Atlantic Records in the late 80s. “Just That Type of Girl”, quickly climbed the dance and R&B Charts to #4 Billboard. The group’s producer, Bernadette Cooper from the Solar/MCA group Klymaxx, organized the group as she and the Madame X members envisioned the group’s concept. The Klymaxx sound heard on such hits as “The Men All Pause” and “Meeting In The Ladies Room” was blended with Madame X’s music and fashion personas to create a brand new sound. Group members, Iris Parker, Valerie Victoria and Alisa Randolph brought with them artful inspiration and vintage sass, similiar to what you may have though of Labelle in their eclectic hey day.. , their bold fashion and mysticism. Another essential element in the group’s sound and style is their shared love for the music of artists like Prince, Parliament-Funkadelic, Sly and The Family Stone and Grace Jones. Passing up their opportunity to sign to Solar Records, Madame X was snapped up by Sylvia Rhone, who headed the Atlantic Records’ R&B division. When Madame X debuted their imagery was ground-breaking and they influenced the artistic standards in the R&B and Hip-Hop scene. Following up the release of Just That Type of Girl, they released the singles, “I Wonder” and “I Want Your Body” as well as the title tracks for motion pictures such as “Action Jackson” starring Sharon Stone and Vanity. Madame X’s songs continue to be played and sampled, most famously on Michael Jackson’s hit song “Keep It In The Closet”. Original CDs are cult-collected(TRANSLATION: hard to fucking find)

Sadly Alisa Marie Randolph succumbed to breast cancer in 05.. they say she remained beautiful til the bitter end..😦

Classic joints from these ladies….  Cherries in the Snow, I Wonder, Just that Type of Girl, Madame X, Marry Me, shoot ,  me and my teenage homegirls used to LOVE THEM

So If you remember.. take this trip back in time with us .. when female performers  were actually DOPE.. and not ALLL ABOUT ASS..  and if you don’t remember.. that’s what Auntie Beejay is here for.. “See you gon’ learn today” …
