Edit: Haha, my god. I just realized today isn't Sunday. It's only Saturday. Wow...shows you where my head is at. Well, think of this as an early treat for the holiday.
Happy New Year! Can you believe it's already 2011? And that we only have another year before the world ends (via the Mayan calendar)? Shit. I trust that you are all brutally hungover right now, and so it is my pleasure to try and help remedy that by providing you with this year’s first Comedown Sunday tune.
Not only does today mark the start of the New Year, it also marks my 3-week anniversary of marijuana sobriety. If you know me, you’ll know that’s a big deal. I hadn’t gone that long without smoking in three years. Mind you, just because I can pass a drug test doesn't mean I now condemn smoking. It’s just that doing it every day wasn’t really working out for me or my productivity, so I decided it was time for a change. I do, however, still appreciate the world’s greatest herb, and so, in irony and nostalgia, I present you with Michael Franti & Spearhead’s Ganja Babe. In it, Franti—San Francisco’s reigning reggae don—sings about a lover who’s both a smoker and a grower. Sexy. Since we all know that the only surefire hangover cure is a fat blunt followed by indulging in your munchies, usher in your New Year the right way. Save yourself one more day to abstain from vices; your pounding head will thank you. Light one up, put this song on, and watch your pain disappear as you slip into hazy, chilled-out bliss.
