Calling All Vipers

8 10 2007

Today’s blog concerns the evils of the demon weed. Tell your children, Mr. and Mrs. America OR THIS COULD HAPPEN TO YOU!

Well, that’s what we were supposed to believe in 1936.

The truth is marijuana can have a negative effect on your short term memory, which could mean you forgot on which Bad Company album you were cleaning your pot. Memo to an anonymous hippie: It was Desolation Angels, and Freddie found your stash, man.


The real human cost of smoking much doob-age is that you inevitably find yourself buying Bad Company albums. Why do you think they call it “dope”?

What I want to know is if the recording industry promoted the gatefold record in the late 60s/early 70s to cater to the pot-smoking hippy crowd.

Is there anyone out there who knows anyone who worked in the industry at this time who could confirm or deny this?

How about anyone who has ever smoked pot?

[…] … and I found a crime scene! The death of an innocent fly, probably a jazz lover. You can almost hear the sickening “FWAPP” as the cover is slammed shut.  How can a Trane fan be so insensitive?  Grisly, isn’t it?  Oh, the sins we find buried in other people’s record collections. […]
