yes… indulge yourself THIS HALLOWEEN.. ALL BLACK EVERYTHING … INCLUDING .. WINGS …. are you into.. if so… here ya go …
Hot sauce? Check. Bloody Mary mix? Check. The creepiest, most vile-looking chicken wings you’ve ever seen? You better believe it. If there’s ever a time to eat something that looks like it flew straight out of hell, it’s Halloween. Of course, this recipe from Smoky Ribs BBQ also packs enough flavor to be a part of your grill game year-round.
24 ounces Louisiana hot sauce
1 tablespoon black food dye
18-24 fresh whole chicken wings
1½ cups Bloody Mary mix
Splash hot sauce, to taste
3-4 splashes Worcestershire sauce
½ lime, juiced
Red food dye
Fresh-cracked black pepper, to taste
Combine 24 ounces of hot sauce with 1 tablespoon of black food dye, and mix well.
Place the chicken wings into a 1-gallon Ziploc bag and cover them with black hot sauce. Seal, and toss the chicken in the marinade until thoroughly covered. Place the bag in the refrigerator and flip it every 30 minutes for 3 hours.
While the chicken is marinating, pour the Bloody Mary mix into a pot. Bring it to a simmer, and then add several dashes of hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, lime juice, and 1 tablespoon of red food dye. Bring the mixture to a simmer again, and add 2 tablespoons of cornstarch slurry to thicken.
Remove the wings from the Ziploc bag. Place them in a shallow dish to catch the drippings, and inject the Bloody Mary mixture into the drumettes and the flats of each wing. Once all wings are fully injected, place them on a grill or smoker over indirect heat. Season with celery salt and pepper, and cook until they reach an internal temperature of 170°F.
Remove the wings from the grill. Garnish with fresh parsley, and serve with celery sticks and the dressing of your choice. (Note: Because of the vibrancy of the Bloody Mary injection, the wings will look and appear raw even when fully cooked, which is why it’s important to check them with an internal thermometer before taking them off the grill.)

THESE STILL ARE AWESOME!!!!!! MAKE THEM TODAY !!!!!
Here are some wonderful Munchies for the Holidaze!!!
Melt the white chocolate in a double boiler over medium-low heat or in the microwave for about 1 minute. Just make sure to stir it often to keep the chocolate from burning. For the best results, chill ghosts until you’re ready to serve them.
1 1/2 cups white chocolate chunks, melted
3 dozen pieces dried fruit (such as banana chips, prunes, apricots or pineapple slices)
2 tablespoons dried blueberries or currants
1 tablespoon sunflower seeds
Line two large sheet trays with parchment paper. Transfer chocolate to a small, deep bowl.
Working with one piece of fruit at a time, dip one end into the chocolate, leaving only the last quarter inch or so exposed; shake off excess chocolate and transfer dipped fruit to prepared sheet tray. Drizzle a bit of extra chocolate around the bottom left and right sides to form the shape of a ghost, then use the blueberries, currants or sunflower seeds to make eyes. Repeat process with remaining fruit and chocolate then chill until completely set, about 1 hour.

This is bittersweet.. I have been waiting for this but I AM ALSO STILL HEARTBROKEN.. oh Amy, why just.(sigh) ……….. 😦
Soul 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 Defand 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 .
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
Actual post date … May of 2009 YOU MISSED IT KID.. hahah LISTEN..THERE IS LIVE FISHBONE IN THIS BITCH FROM 87… GET IN HERE !!!
This is an actual excerpt from 1964’s This is Ska. Observe the swagger of the dance. This was the beginning of the first wave of the ska movement. Started in Jamaica in the early 50’s, ska was the seed of what begat Reggae, Roots, and PUnk respectively. I personally rocked with the 1st and 2nd wave of ska.. and of course Fishbone during all the waves lol.. This was a movement that spread to the US and had us all pushing Vespas, dressing two tone, and rocking monkey boots, creepers, and bitch boots. But it’s not too late.. go cop you some Specials, English Beat, or Madness today.
Desmond Dekker R*I*P came thru with joints like “Rude Boy Train” and “The Israelites”
Ya’ll ain’t fuckin with Mr. Dekker’s jumpsuit.. He got the Maurice White tightness while representin that 2tone all day doggy lol..observe that Rude boy 2 tone motif… A little Prince Buster mixed with Johnny Taylor.. I ain’t mad.. (shakes head and lights joint.) I AM NOT MAD..
The Wailers started out as a ska band in the early 60’s … You can tell on such joints as “Concrete JUngle” and “Stir it up”. A bit slower but this was you know when the “pick it up” turned into “cool it down”
Stir It Up
nods are also given to Prince Buster and Lee scratch Perry.. during this period.
so we are cinephiles here at Bamboobanga …. we are totally obsessed with FILM, Art,Kush and Television , respectively .. Superbbness and I both come from film and television backgrounds so we always are watching something AWESOME WHILE SMOKING SOMETHING…
Growing up ..i was obsessed with being a teen and taking shit over… I mean i was all things emo and angsty .. I am also deep into NOSTALGIA.. right now . i am going to share with you some of my favorite GET HIGH FLICKS.. where the fucking kids were NOT ALRIGHT …
let’s start with 1979’s Over the Edge.. now if you saw the recent Kurt Cobain documentary “Montage of Heck” .. you would see that Cobain found inspiration in this little flick as well.. It was also one of the first films for Matt Dillon and Vincent Spano.. aww they were babies..
The gist is that essentially this new little desert town , New Grenada . thinks that the local rec center THAT CLOSES AT 6PM.. is enough to provide entertainment and containment for their young people.. The adults basically ignore them until one of the kids gets a hold of a pistol and starts foolin around, and accidentally (err) shoots and kills a local police officer .. UH OH .. the next night the old folk gather to decide what to do … and during that time .. ALL HELL BREAKS LOSE.. and the kids are in charge like Charles HAHAHAHAH… it’s cheesy and awesome… This movie also has a damn awesome soundtrack ( good luck finding it though) , Jimi, Cheap Trick , (lots of Cheap Trick) , Van Halen, and The Ramones to name a few.. Director : Johnathan Kaplan …….Starring: Matt Dillon, Vincent Spano , Pamela Ludwig
My next favorite is 1983’s Suburbia .. now i have put this joint on here so many times.. but hell.. that was years ago so HERE IT IS AGAIN LOL.. .. So it starts off .with a teenage runaway chick hitch hiking, she is picked up by a lady with a baby .. the car gets a flat, (this was before cell phones ) .. the lady gets out to use the payphone on the side of the freeway and her baby is mauled and killed by a rabid stray dog (off camera of course BUT STILL LOL) .. .. GOT YOUR ATTENTION. yeah that’s how i felt as a preteen LIKE OMG, WHAT THE FUCK , hahaha ..
We then see young Evan with his bitter drunk ass mama going through it .. He goes to see TSOL .. somebody slips him a mickey and he meets up with blonde coiffed punk Jack who offers him a place to stay … Evan is like fuck it ..”my life is shit anyways” .. and on their way to the raggedy ass squat house. (T.R House, which is a raggedy squat house in an unincorporated part of land off the 605) .. they pick up another wayward kid.. Joe Schmo who is salty because his dad is gay … soooo anyways a bunch of shit goes down .. the house is full of young punks, ONE OF THEM a very young FLEA FROM THE CHILI PEPPERS ha he plays a dude with a rat named RAZZLE. AAAH Flea!!!!!!!!!! The young squad becomes THE REJECTED.. erego the moniker,T.R. These kids loot to live, get drunk , and revolt against “THE MAN” .. yadda yadda .they become the neighborhood menaces .. . it all ends in a culmination of FUCK .. this is one of my favorite flicks… it’s cheesy too .. but as a young PUNK (in my mind).. this told my story hahahahah.. A cautionary tale of Mohawks and rebellion .. most of the actors were not actors but real local punks and i have always thought that was really rad.. never mind that it was not going to be in line for any Academy Awards hahahaha… Penelope Spheeris of “The Destruction of Western Civilization” documentaries did a cool job with this low budget nugget.. so roll up .. lay back and enjoy.. also get up and dance around when “Washed Away” comes on.. that’s the jam .. AYEEEEEEE Director and Writer :Penelope Spheeris Starring: Chris Pederson , Bill Coyne, Jennifer Clay and FLEA ..
moving on to 1983’s. The Outsiders …” LET’S DO IT FOR JOHNNY” ..…
So this little gem is probably the most POPULAR .. amongst you reading this..I mean who doesn’t say “Stay Gold” ..or “Let’s Do it for Johnny” .. on the regular hahahah ..Now this group of teens were not neccessarily trying to TAKE OVER per se’ but they still struggled with every young person’s relatable need tosurvive, fit in and rule in their region.. . I remember crying when Karate Kid ( Johnny Cade played eloquently by the forever young Ralph Macchio) died .. HE WAS JUST TRYIN TO SAVE THE BABIES YA’LL…….( tears) …. There is not really a huge breakdown for this classic as the story is quite cut and dry .. .. S.E. Hinton’s novel inspired this celluloid treasure , it is the age old battle between the Have’s and the Have nots ensues.. with much carnage and fervor…. as a young-un i am sure i had a crush on the ENTIRE gorgeous cast LOL… Basically a rumble between the poor Greasers and the ballin Socs ends with a death and then it’s really ON.. This is one of my faves and the cast is BANANAS ..Director: Francis Ford CoppolaStarring:Tom Cruise, Diane Lane, Ralph Macchio, Patrick Swayze ,Emilio Estevez, Leif Garrett, C.Thomas Howell *fun fact: author of novel S.E. Hinton is featured as a nurse in the hospital where Johnny dies*)
1983’s RumbleFish …
Here is another classic that we have featured here on Bamboobanga BEFORE, (in case you missed our last Rumblefish piece.. here ya go ) but no worries, allow me to REITERATE the greatness of this joint here. Rumblefish was boasts almost the same cast as The Outsiders and is inspired by and based on Hinton’s novel “Rumblefish” . The screenplay was written on the weekends when Coppola and Hinton weren’t filming The Outsiders, talking about WORK ETHIC …MAN.. ANYWAY .. this movie is literally a cornucopia of young eighties actors on the come up .. Matt Dillon is a long way from Shady Pines as young teenage hard head, Rusty James; he and his crew roam the HARD streets of Oklahoma City looking for some trouble and gang activity .. if he is not with his squad , ( Laurence Fishburne, Nicolas Cage,Christopher Penn , and Vincent Spano AGAIN.. ) then he is boo’d up with his lovely girlfriend .. Patty (Diane Lane) .
Rusty’s mom bounced awhile back and left him and his brother Motorcycle Boy (Mickey Roarke) with their drunk, welfare recipient dad ( Dennis Hopper) . Motorcycle Boy has just turned 21 and is the local OG in the neighborhood , MB leaves the city and in his absence Rusty tries to follow in his footsteps ,wreaking havoc and rumbling in the streets until his older brother returns and tells him to straighten up. Rusty and his crew will have none of that ; it is still all about the turn up for them as they participate in extreme teenage mischief and illicit behavior that will undoubtedly lead to their young demise . Motorcycle Boy appears to everyone to be losing his mind when in fact he just wants to keep it cool and just get to the shoreline LOL.( no really he has an obsession with seeing the water). This is not only great film, but the soundtrack is awesome too. Stewart Copeland ( Police) used experimental methods to score the film, getting assistance from Wall of Voodoo’s Stan Ridgway for the popular title track “Don’t Box Me In”. Copeland also used the new (at the time) composing and tempo software, Musync, an editing program allowing him to mix ambient sound from Tulsa’s streets within the actual soundtrack of the film.
Rumblefish is a poignant coming of age piece that allows for us to see the struggle between becoming a man and trying to find one’s place in an uninspiring environment . Two brothers are on opposite paths , yet both seem to lead to the inevitable destruction of the very fabric of who they are and who they are TRYING TO BECOME . (*Author S. E. Hinton makes a quick appearance as a local prostitute in this one*)
Director: Francis Ford CoppolaWriters:S.E. Hinton and CoppolaStarring:Mickey Roarke, Matt Dillon, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Chris Penn, Sofia Coppola, Vincent Spano, Dennis Hopper ( More teen fuckery after the break) YO..THERE IS A SECOND PAGE YOU TWEAKER!!!!!!!! Continue reading →
Posting this for sis.. Chino Moreno is her husband IN HER HEAD.. (you know that fool is happily married B) HAHAH..nah but she really loves Deftones as do I and of course they have been staples in the skate community since day one.. I hope you guys went out and got ‘Koi No Yokan’… it’s really pretty epic.. Check out Romantic Dream and this epic Jason Park situation.. Lowkey looks like a Lakai ad..LOL..
“When we started this record cycle, we decided that we didn’t want to make any videos whatsoever. They’re not much fun to make and they usually turn out pretty corny. But this was an idea that we were interested in because we’re all very keen skateboarders and we like the idea of marrying one of our songs to someone as talented as Jason Park.”
Go here to purchase the newest album or any DEFTONES album YOU DON’T HAVE LOL.. .. AND THEY EVEN HAVE THAT SHIT ON VINYL.. so OG.. i swear.. RIP CHI.. WE STILL MISS AND LOVE YOU BROTHA!!!!!! You still in the mood for more Deftones.. Put their name in the search.. THEY ARE ALL OVER THIS FUCKING BLOG.. since THE BEGINNING .. ENJOY!!!
So .. this weekend I ran into this really cute Tangerine Sativaduring my weekly Bubba Expedition at Aardvarks Dispensary.. and damnit.. THEY WERE WIPED OUT.. I WEPT.. there is no more BUBBA.. omg.. but through my tears my usual budtender presented this lil girl.. The smell alone was is really REALLY CITRUSY.. It smelled as if I just bit into a cold fresh Florida Orange.. lol.. I usually don’t buy STRAIGHT SATIVA but i wanted to give this one a try. I got a little Earth Og too.to replace that raging INDICA thirst I had come there for, but SuperbbNess and I have reviewed that wonderful strain (Earth) a thousand times on 420Bamboobanga.. I thought I would take the time to enlighten you on this new sweet tangy tartness of Ms. Tangerine. the sativa that blew me away. It crumbles well and was cool to the touch.. I really didn’t need to put it in my grinder. I really tripped at how the actual smell and the burn smell is spot on with a real big ass tangerine.. It almost felt like incense or something.. The smell is awesome and the taste is just as sweet. Of course I mixed it ..my joints usually start sativa or hybrid and end with the knock you on your ass KUSH.. Halfway through the joint I got quite giggly and melancholy.. My head was tight and I could move away from the joint for a spell and that is an awesome sign. I would strongly suggest finding this strain in your area.. I find the high to be heavy but you are able to work with objects and hold conversations.. My mood was light and fluffy and it made me want to watch a comedy .. so I watched “Valley Girl” with NIc Cage.. hahahah. Tangerine is the shit ya’ll..
OMG.. MY GIFT TO YOU. THE WHOLE FRIGGIN MOVIE.. thank me later..
We have lost another real one. .Former heavyweight boxing champion and actor, Ken Norton died at the age of 70 in Arizona, Wednesday morning.. . We remember him for being the only man who had enough gumption to break MUHAMMAD ALI’S jaw during a historical match in 1973.
We also remember his difficult to watch yet memorable portrayal of the infamous slave Mede in 1975’s “Mandingo” .. Ken’s boxing career would continue peppered with many achievements and consequently just as many upsets. Norton is survived by his two sons, one of which is former NFL linebacker Ken Norton Jr., who won three Super Bowls over his 13-year career … He is also currently the Linebacker/ Defensive Coach for the Seattle Seahawks.. You will be missed brother Norton. REST IN POWER BLACK HERCULES!!!!

Enjoy this series.. of OPTICAL ILLUSIONS.. guaranteed to make you “back up off of it and put yo JOINT down” .. hahaha.. Peace!!
We want to send our most heartfelt condolences out to the family and friends of Mr. Leroy ” SugarFoot “ Bonner, frontman and guitarist for the illustrious OHIO PLAYERS, also known as...” The Ohio Untouchables”. Mr. Bonner coined a vocal situation that would later be used by everyone from Roger Troutman to Larry Blackmon… He passed away at that age of 70 but had been touring all year and still had dates to fulfill in 2013. It is good he passed doing what he was born to do. At press time, there are still no details as to how he died but keep it here as we will be following this story and updating accordingly. We actually found out via Dawn Silva’s (Original Bride of Funkenstein’s) facebook page.
He was a beast to watch live and a survivor off of the stage.. The Ohio Players paved the way for most of the midwest funk of the 70’s and 80’s Soul eras respectively. Who can remember his vocals on joints like ““I Wanna Be Free”,“Skintight”, HELL, and Love Rollercoaster to name a few. TVONE’s award winning docu-series aired an excellent episode of “UNSUNG” featuring THE OHIO PLAYERS in 2011. Check their schedule because I am sure they will be rebroadcasting it in commemoration of a brotha , that according to Grandma on FUNKY WORM “was funkier than 9 cans of shaving powder” LOL.. We will miss you and your EPIC FRO Mr. Bonner..
Sit back and relax and listen to some of the funk provided by our FUNK FOREFATHERS..
