OLD PEOPLE AND POT



“SO LET’S PARTY”

Temecula, CA – The saying, ‘age is just a number’ is partly true because it isn’t the number that marks you as 'old', but also your demeanor toward current events. In an effort to advance the readers in my generation
Tommy Chong, l., with 420Nurse Lakota Wolf
the Calendar presents three short vids after the jump.

You know, it was never my intention to use Memoirs of Mr. Pete as an inducement tool to promote pot use. 

Cannabis as a plant probably isn’t completely understood by anyone on the planet considering it is a gift from God. For that reason, the first chapter in Memoirs explains the best way to first smoke, and that is with friends and some background music. Smoking weed the first time is an occasion. Memoirs was written to show how cannabis affects your life in a direction, which for me made it like Forrest Gump, special.

After the jump we get to see the candid appearances of three women, all grandmothers and not, repeat, not medical marijuana patients, and one older gentleman, the type you might find in any well maintained senior community. They all have one thing in common. They have all now met Mary Jane Green and life for them will never be the same. I know, I wrote a book about that principle. 

FINALLY, THE EMPEROR WEARS NO CLOTHES



THE FUCK STOPS HERE

Temecula, CA – Some of us are old enough to remember having ‘the talk’. Not the talk from an employer
who says the company is stable the day before they lay you off. Not the talk you have when the vet says Fluffy needs an operation at Christmastime. Not even the talk when you ask why you can’t sit down and ‘they’ can. No, this is the talk we all hope to never have. This is the talk when you know the other person really doesn’t like you, they like someone else more, themselves.

With the No Indictment from Ferguson, folks around the world can now see America for what it really is, because the clothes just fell off the Statue of Liberty. Like a Greek statue of a wood nymph, America stands again in the spotlight; alongside Bill Cosby, the non-comic Christmas gift that every day, just keeps on giving. 

With women of color now joining the leagues of victims I doubt even a fly would want to be on the ceiling in the Cosby household. A song from Killradio comes to mind called, Do You Know (What they Say About You When You Leave The Room?) “Never thought twice about holding your tongue,” runs one line in the song. Now that line resonates through both sceanarios.

THE ONCE GREAT AND POWERFUL COZ



TWO TEACHING MOMENTS, INDEED

Temecula, CA – Years ago, I stated the goal of writing this slant to the current news happenings was to develop a group/mindset apart from the rest of humanity on the stage of life. The simple reason of motivation is the cartoony 5000lbs trapezoid weight hanging over the collective group by a thread.

Having reached this goal, we are going to now look back at those still under the weight, and examine the teaching moments they are missing. We are going to look past their questions and think instead about the answers they seek. Presented now, are the teaching moments of Ferguson and Bill Cosby, 77.


The first question concerning both situations is ‘why now?’ the answer to that is what some Christians call the pre-tribulation. This is the little wind that blows in just before the storm really hits. It hits your cheek lightly and you think, that doesn’t feel so bad. Tsunami-wise, this is when the water reveals the fish. In the days of Noah, “Is that a cloud? What’s a cloud?” 

This is the time of Divine Intervention. These judgments are to reveal what is coming.

KATY PERRY WILL DO SUPERBOWL!!

IT'S OFFICIAL NOW. WE KNEW HER WHEN

Temecula, CA - Just an hour ago, as I write this directly to the blog, it has been announced by AP's Mesfin
Fekadu, that Katy Perry will perform in the halftime Super Bowl show. I think the readers may have read that news days ago here. Why is that? Cause we knew her when her name was Hudson, before she kissed a girl and liked it. Here is the story that is breaking...

"Will Katy Perry be a firework at the Super Bowl? Will she show them what she's worth? Will she let her colors burst?


NFL announced late Sunday — after rumors swirled for weeks — that the pop star will headline the Pepsi Super Bowl halftime show on Feb. 1 at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Arizona. It will air on NBC.

Perry, 30, has dominated the Billboard charts since releasing her debut in 2008, including nine No. 1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Her sophomore effort, 2010's multiplatinum "Teenage Dream," matched the record Michael Jackson set with "Bad" for most songs from a single album to hit No. 1 with five."

THE LA AUTO SHOW



WORTH A DRIVE FROM ANYWHERE

Temecula, CA – “It could only happen where you live,” was the reply when I shared the latest story tidbits of a scoop, a planned exclusive ‘inview’, the combination of an interview and a review. This is a story that I have nurtured and followed for over two years. Recently the trail got hot, hence the real-life comment from Randy*, aka ‘Winston’ in Memoirs of Mr. Pete two days ago.

My friend is certainly correct as he still lives in Iowa, and going to the famous LA Auto Show is one of those ‘it could only happen because of where you live’ items. Long on my bucket list of things to experience living out here, the auto show in Los Angeles has a history going back longer than Maserati has been in business**.

Founded in 1907, the Los Angeles Auto Show (LA Auto Show), is one of the most influential and best-attended auto shows globally and spans more than 870,000 square feet. In delivering worldwide media exposure, global industry networking and showcasing experimental concept cars...

in the nation’s largest car buying market, the Show’s trade days/Press Days draw more than 12,000 auto industry decision makers and talking heads/enthusiasts, including 4,000 media from more than 50 countries. The Show opened its doors to the public on Friday and expects to host close to a million automobile fans, customers and gear heads over the course of ten exciting days, closing down on November 31.

AYN RAND, FERGUSON, AND GAZA



ALL THE WORLD WATCHES KLAN CHRISTIANS AND ASHKENAZI JEWS

Temecula, CA – Before we turn our attention to outer space and the secret mission to land instrumentation 
on a ‘comet’ or the latest on the 13K
 year-old Black Knight satellite which started the ‘space race’ back in the 50s, we take a look at two terrestrial hot spots both based on long simmering racial divides through the words of Ayn Rand.

Lately the Klan Christians of Ferguson [anyone ‘white’ not on the side of MB] have used the famous quote uttered by the Japanese of ‘awakening a sleeping giant’ referring to the might of armed whites against unarmed blacks. This intimidation is almost the same as the militarization of armored Israelis against the stone yielding youth of the Gaza Strip, pictured here. Both initiatives are meant to keep the ‘occupied’ in their place, a place of submission, for profit.

Ayn Rand, who passed in 1962, was a Russian-American novelist, philosopher, playwright, and screenwriter. Recently I came across a meme of her espousing words that sound like she is watching the evening news. But of course, that’s impossible. The reasons Ayn Rand’s words carry weight today are the same reason Jesus’ do. They both speak of a situation that is not new. Ferguson is NOT new. Think American Indians before we honored them with casinos and the title ‘Native’ American rather than real respect and inclusion.

The reason Ayn Rand reflected on is as old as our birth, and is covered in more detail in these two books. The Bible, as we have been given it to read, and the discernment of the words from Jack Herer, “Medical marijuana is the worst thing that ever happened to marijuana. It’s the plant. It’s the whole plant, cannabis, not marijuana, that’s what’s important!” – page 267, Memoirs of Mr. Pete [Amazon]

KEYSTONE STOPPED – FOR NOW



WHOLESALE REPUBLICAN ENVIRONMENT SELLOUT STOPPED BY 1 VOTE

Temecula, CA – Holy Moley!! What a week of good news for all my label GMO friends, many of whom
don’t just concern themselves with their children’s food health but also the environment. After all, who wants to eat anything while coughing on bad air or avoiding tar spills to step in.

Senate Democrats, by a single vote, stopped legislation that would have approved construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, one of the most fractious and expensive battles of the Obama presidency.

The vote represented a victory for the environmental movement, but the fight had taken on larger dimensions as a proxy war between Republicans, who argued that the project was vital for job creation, and President Obama, who had delayed a decision on building it.

Senator Mary L. Landrieu, Democrat of Louisiana, who is facing a runoff election Dec. 6, had pleaded with her colleagues throughout the day to support the pipeline, leading to a rare suspense-filled roll call in the Senate. But she was ultimately rebuffed and fell short by one. The bill was defeated with 59 votes in favor and 41 against, and Ms. Landrieu needing 60 votes to proceed.

THIS TURKEY GETS DROPPED FOR UNDRESSING



THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES EXPLAINS WHY WHOOPI TOOK BILL'S SIDE 

Temecula, CA – Like Stephen Collins [“I was fired two hours after the TMZ story broke”], the economic
opportunities from an entertainment industry based on perception are being retracted like dominoes from William Cosby Jr. with Netflix being the latest. NBC was next.

Others outside the Cosby Compound, no doubt under a similar atmosphere as the Collins Compound, are also catching a bit of grief blowback, especially Whoopi Goldberg who is accused of being racist for the backup. Although that opinion may be true, it’s more likely that Whoopi, like blacks and Jews, is sensitive to the racism often directed to her from whites. But there is another deeper reason why she and many other women of all colors refuse to credit Barbara Bowman’s story. For any who attended the valley’s showing of the critic-acclaimed Vagina Monologues, physical attractiveness and self-esteem play a big part in how women see each other.

Women who wouldn’t be seduced, even at 19, don’t have a lot of sympathy for the lookers who are, often reciting disgust or disbelieve toward the casting-couch girl in question. This isn’t based on race, but beauty. 

Meanwhile… 

VICE CATCHES UP TO TEMECULA CALENDAR



THE STORY OF THE REAL NANCY BOTWIN of ‘WEEDS’

Temecula, CA – It used to be that only Panasonic was ‘slightly ahead of its time’ but now both Rolling Stone Magazine and the Temecula Calendar 
can also boast such a claim with one wrinkle. The Calendar may have shot from the lip in lumping Dr. Dina with the rest of the phoned-in stories in the Rolling Stone collection. What can I say? Being an out-of-towner who doesn’t rub blunts with the rich or renowned, I wrote it as I saw it. Now I see it differently.

Though I can’t say any of my original time facts were wrong or that Dr. Dina’s Snoop connection didn’t get her the TV consultant gig, it’s just now that I seen the Vice vid which follows this brief introduction and it wasn’t all luck; there were dues paid. So much respect, Dr. Dina, but I hope you at least get a ‘based loosely on’ accreditation. Of course we know Hollywood is really like it was portrayed at the end of the Simpsons Show episode, right?

The highly rated Showtime series ‘Weeds’ features a central character named Nancy Botwin, a person we will see in the following Vice vid that is just part of the colorful adventures of someone else Mary Jane Green literally pulled into the mix of cannabis life.

NEAL YOUNG BOYCOTTS STARBUCKS



THIS NOs FOR YOU

Temecula, CA – Having no news as yet about the GMO referendums in Colorado and Oregon to report yet, here is the first of good news about the GMO fight.

“I used to line up and get my latte every day, but yesterday was my last one.” 


Famous musician Neil Young wrote this on his website this past week, announcing that he would be boycotting Starbucks Coffee. The reason? Starbucks is one of three plaintiffs that are bringing up a lawsuit against the State of Vermont. Vermont passed a law this past spring that all food products containing GMO must be labeled as such (with the exception of dairy, meat, alcohol and restaurant served food) and Starbucks, Snack Food Association, the International Dairy Food Association and the National Association of Manufacturers are trying to challenge the law’s constitutionality.

Neil Young clearly feels the law should not be altered, and he feels that if Starbucks can be pressured out of going to court, the other companies may follow.

FOR A GAY TIME, EAT GMO FOODS



NEW STUDY SHOWS GENE MANIPULATION EFFECT

Temecula, CA – ‘For every action, there is an opposite reaction’. We all learned this watching the Disney Show science lessons and in school. Put a more abstract way, we call it ‘cause and effect’. With both scenarios we are familiar, but the scenario in the middle most of don’t think about. In a country filled with GMO foods and Monsanto-owned elitists/eugenics politicians who buy into Agenda 21 as a way to a ‘better world’, if you believe that way, stop reading NOW.

For the 98% of the country that still believes ‘democracy’ rather than an oligarchy exists, that letters to the FDA, EPA, DEA, and anyone else means a diddily who works off your dime, 6 cents of which goes to some of the above locations, take heart. The people in these agencies, just like those of us in the competing 2% [1+1], are starting to see the fruits of Monsanto’s labor, if they look. 

Fortunately for Temecula Calendar readers, we looked. And look you have to for this is America, where you are free to discover what’s happening. For that is the epitome of Capitalism, “Let the buyer beware.”

Many are aware of the ills caused by the introduction of GMO foods into the mainstream in the 90s, but when you seek to destroy a species, and dwindle a whole race, you get more than just sickness and weakness. You get what Obama promised. You get change.

SILENCE SIGNALS CONSENT FOR CAVEMAN COSBY



SOMETHING UNDIGNIFIED CAN NEVER BE DIGNIFIED, DUH!!


Temecula, CA – Time to move on to the next story, BUT before we do, we take one last look at the most stiff-necked non-Jew around, Bill Cosby, Jr. With a new book coming out, loads of Cosby Show reruns still playing, winning different awards and prizes year after year,
now it all crashes and burns like the Hindenburg in ’37 with the Cosby lawyer reply that Bill, “will not dignify "decade-old, discredited" claims of sexual abuse with a response. As we all know, silence means consent.

We could hope that Cosby is from that generation who looked at women as trophies, to be won or stolen, but never to be humanized as a sister, a child, or a person. Never loved but stolen. But we held the same hope for all the racist folks in the country, that the racism would die out as the older generation dies off. Let’s ask the folks in Ferguson how that’s working out for them, seeing an uninjured police office fresh from shooting down an unarmed teenager in released stills with no apparent bruises.

Don’t worry, Mr. Cosby, you could never dignify what you are alleged to have done, testified to by at least 13 other women, with any remake. These women weren’t the ones you slut-puppied around with either, so really there is no telling how many women did sleep with the Famous Bill Cosby, Mr. Coca-Cola, Jell-O pudding, and Hey, Hey, Hey, here comes Fat Albert with a message for you, [if you’re a female]. No answer to the demands for personal responsibility like you direct at less fortunate fellow African-Americans, Mr. Pot Caller?

COSBY, COLLINS, AND MR. HOST



WHEN STARS FALL FROM THE HEAVENS WE PUT THEM IN

Temecula, CA – There is a saying that Snoop Dogg is old enough to have heard: “If God made anything finer [than a woman], he kept it for Himself.” 

You might think that if men feel that way, why are women ever raped? Well ladies, men fall into three categories; gentlemen, assholes, and douche bags, or the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.

A gentleman is a guy who doesn’t take advantage of a woman in any condition [page 232, Memoirs of Mr. Pete].

An asshole sees a drunk, and being drunk too, says, “What the hell? She won’t remember; we’re both drunk. She might even like it.”


A douche bag is someone who is premeditated and a predator, a hunter, and the woman, girl, or boy, is the game. Alcohol or drugs don’t set the stage, they are merely props and a means to an end, for the female isn’t a person but a personality caught in the ego game of ‘power over’. And it is never consensual on the woman’s part. It wasn’t on Eve’s part either.

ANXIETY??



“MY LITTLE LIFE SAVER”

Temecula, CA – There is a reason you will never see an actual mother of an autistic child, besides a Honey Boo Boo, ever author an article endorsing the vaccination schedule as it is today. With the approaching proposed legalization of marijuana, one foe against such actions has already began to ramp up the disinformation to California residents in much the same way as lies were spread [and still are] about labeling GMOs.
 
As the inscription reads on my Strong’s Concordance, “Let no man deceive you in no way”

As a service to our readers and for a neighbor who suffers from anxiety, here is, like that mother, a firsthand report in ‘her’ own words. Women, as you know, are for more prone to exhibit and suffer from this modern day ailment of mental health. As such, anxiety is part of Big Pharma’s profit margin.

“It was quiet and dark. I could hear my breathing and my breathing only. No one was around. My heartbeat was slowly picking up pace but I tried to remain calm.

I can't believe this is happening to me again.

I struggle for air as my breathing becomes more shallow.

My heart races!

FOOTBALL NEWS AFTER NFL WEEK TEN



FROM THE DESK OF THE “FUGITIVE” COMMISSIONER

Hello Football Fans,
 
After a wild week in college football, the playoff picture is coming into focus, but is still not clear.  
Conference title games are not too far away, and will likely determine a few spots in the new CFP.


The NFL has been particularly unpredictable this year, and there were a few shockers last weekend.

Enjoy,

The Fugitive Commissioner of the FFHL, on the lam from the gambling police
(Hmmm. On the lam from those boys in blue. Explains the absence - Ed)

HAPPY HUMP DAY



SNAFU, OK?

Temecula, CA – Today, the great exalted White Man* made one more attempt to make the world over in OK has its origins in early 19th Century Boston. The ‘expert’ who claims this is dead, so he can’t be debated. How convenient. Though the article does mention other, much older origins, the first one is, of course, from black origins.
His image. Today on the HuffPost it reports a new article published in Smithsonian magazine maintains that

Other headlines boost a new eco friendly pact with China where China gives up nothing and gets a big kiss on the rear from Barry wearing shade #13 from Revlon. The unheralded good news? China is embarking on a different trade deal than TPP, saving the American Sheeple, I mean people a grand sellout Benedict Arnold would have bowed to in admiration. In one day, after doing a single right and standing up for net neutrality, brown Barry wipes away all his brownie points. He has to be second to Nixon.

Have my readers been paying attention? We had the Russian people being saved from ingesting GMO American food by the American government sanctions and now the American people being saved by the Chinese government. Also the latest study from Texas where they used low IQ people against higher IQ folks, gave the or picked out the low IQs because they were pot heads, and then said pot, in effect, caused these people to be stupid through ‘pot-induced’ habits.

TEMECULA VALLEY MUSIC AWARDS



UNDERGROUND TALENT ROCKS SUNDAY NIGHT

Temecula, CA – Though it seems fairly quiet here in the bottom nook of Riverside County, save for the occasional DUI mayor injuring cheerleaders, this past Sunday evening it wasn’t a siren that interrupted the night air, it was music. And while the music was made available through status quo avenues for status quo ears, those of us long associated with the underground music scene, all local unknown super heroes who knew a Spaceman named Jack, well, we smiled and winked to each other for the present day music association. 

At the same time I was enjoying the latest youth-oriented music endeavor, other folks were tuning in to Dwight Arnold’s Sunday Night Music Meeting [KMYT, 94.5 ex-Smooth Jazz] to listen for Bloody Maury, the first commercial release from Alex Monk, aka Nice Day Vince. But don’t fret, Sports Fans, you can still toast your ears to the coffee shop tune by hitting up KMYT’s FB and saying, “Please rebroadcast Alex Monk’s song. I was enjoying the first Temecula Valley Music Awards and had to miss it.” The new format away from smooth jazz [sorry, wine-lovers] seems geared more toward a younger market now, much like the TVMA aimed-for demo. Let’s make the connection between these two dots in the local scene.

Before we move on to the night and the winners, complete with pics, there are two elements of the evening that will be addressed. The first is the not-so-strange connection of the night to Bipsy, St. Bipsy to me, and Elizabeth Amirian to others [see Top Ten story that floats here like a ghost]. The second, explained now, is the difference between ‘garage bands’ [purist’s term] and the ‘underground music scene’ [passion]. The shockwave from the latter still brings terms of amazement, not about the level of talent but the abundance of it, in this neck of the woods. On Sunday, aspects of Then and Now came together with just a pinch of the Divine.

KEENWILD VIDEO ‘SEVENTEEN’ WINS TOP HONORS



TEMECULA VALLEY MUSIC AWARDS SHOW THIS SUNDAY

Temecula, CA – The old saying is, ‘the more things change, the more they stay the same.’ That is a truth also
for this magical valley. Long before the Matt Rahn generation graduated from college and even before the Mall, the music scene was being helmed by the man who pushed the scene into being, Bill Gould, publisher of the Temecula Calendar, among others and one-half of the Americana/folk music duo, Keenwild.

Long-time readers like James Bryant [non-Cali resident] will recall the long rich history chronicled of Full Value Entertainment in the days before the Temecula Calendar. It was in those days that Bill first met his wife, Jeney Kingsbury, and together they formed the group named after a stand of trees located in Idyllwild. Those days also yielded the chart-topping hit [#2, downloads] ‘Mr. Pete’, the pot reference used later in Memoirs of Mr. Pete & Mary Jane Green, soon to be available also in audio [details TBA]. The song was a hit in Australia. The very first band shirts were designed and produced by moi, with the two music notes used for the dot above the ‘i’ joined by the bar, a sign of things to come. I never asked if they ever caught that inside joke. I’m just like that.

Now the duo is set to release their latest EP, Sunsets, and a song from the upcoming EP turned into a video has been awarded ‘Viewer’s Choice’ by the Temecula Valley Music Awards, a first time event set for this Sunday, and yeah, I’ll be there [Lord willing and the creek don’t rise]. Details after the jump.

STAYING STONED, BUMMER



FRESH BLOOD FROM JACK BENNY’S AGE SAGE

Temecula, CA – The local election results were a mixed bag with the only good news outside of calling correctly on some measures, being the addition of Matt Rahn, 39, to the sitting city council of Temecula. With youth, advanced degrees, and the experience from the Liberty Quarry fight under his belt, along with the growing hip youth demo edging the ‘okie-doaks’ toward a wine-sipping retirement, perhaps Temecula will get synchronized traffic signals, finally sink Dumbo’s Water Park in the face of California’s drought, and finish the bike trail route so families can ride together around town. Not everyone lives in South Temecula or rides a horse.


As foretold, the pointless gesture of resigning but leaving your name on the ballot to be reelected seems a typical trick for someone who works Orange County to do to the rubes of Riverside. For a mayor who believes in Agenda 21 and has gone on record saying so, I would expect nothing less. Aside from Mitt Romney, only crackerjack whiz kids work for Monsanto’s planned future of eugenics, a philosophy handed down from Plato. I guess my question is, how do you exonerate yourself from failing field sobriety checks? Say the officers were incompetent in their duty? Or just let the dust settle? Time will tell.

There was also a little payback, a nut-sack snap to one of the names on the list of ‘Nays’ over the grassroots label GMO. Like the old-timer in the Warner Bros. Westerns who pulls out his Sharps buffalo gun and brings down the stuntman who falls into the dirt camera angle coming towards the viewer – I Got One. 

GREEN REVOLUTION ROLLS ON



OREGON, ALASKA, AND DC VOTE FOR MARY JANE


Yesterday residents of Oregon, Alaska, and the U.S. capital voted to legalize marijuana on Tuesday, in key
victories that could fuel the legalization movement as cannabis usage is increasingly recognized by the American mainstream.

The Oregon and Alaska measures would legalize recreational pot use and usher in a network of retail pot shops similar to those operating in Washington state and Colorado, which in 2012 voted to become the first U.S. states to allow marijuana use for fun.

A less far-reaching proposal in the District of Columbia to allow marijuana possession but not retail sales won nearly 65 percent of the vote with all precincts reporting, unofficial results showed.

The referendums come amid shifts in American opinions on marijuana in recent years that have energized efforts to legalize cannabis, a drug that remains illegal under federal law even as Colorado and Washington state have been given the go-ahead to experiment with legalization.

TEMECULA AREA ARTIST RELEASES FIRST PUBLIC EP



ALEXANDER AND THE WONDERFUL, POETIC, MUY BUENO, VERY NICE DAY/UPDATE

Temecula, CA – Local artist and long time friend Vincent Alexander Chiofalo, better known as Nice Day Vince from the Java Joz days of local underground entertainment, has released his very first work for public consumption. As an artist in the past, his limited release CD demos quickly were scrafed up by fans of the avant-garde artist with Murrieta roots. The 4-song EP went live on this past Halloween [Oct. 31] under the solo artist name Alex Monk. 


Though Vince performed in Nice Day, the 3-piece band he founded wound up opening for Foghat, receiving solid critical acclaim for their performance. Now, as a solo performer, dropping a ‘commercial’ aka for general consumption CD shows growth and polish. This freshman release, entitled Green Lights, is a coming of age portrait into the soul of an artist who never fails to delight through sung poetry. 

The four track EP opens with 'Bloody Maury', a coffee shop friendly bounce that washes down well with a Starbucks grande espresso. The simple hook repeated over the happy tap your feet, nod your head melody has that college radio sound with the ‘fresh’ of the Vince we know as an artist.
