The Stoner Girl’s Guide to Stoner Girl Ängie


Ängie is a Swedish stoner sensation and she just released a video for her new single Dope. This single is from her debut album titled Suicidal Since 1995 which is being released into the world by Universal on April 6th, 2018. Here’s the new Dope video along with some older hits.


Had the honour of chatting with Ängie, check it out below!


What advice would you give to your 19-year-old self?

I think I’d slap myself in the face and say WHO CARES?!

What do you think would happen if a 90-year-old woman accidentally fed a pan of hash brownies to a pack of squirrels?

I think they’d just lay on the grass eating nuts or something. Talking about life and all the bullshit that goes on in the squirrel tree.

How do you feel about cats? And how many cats do you think are too many cats for one woman to own?

I actually don’t like cats as much as I like dogs. Cats are smart as fuck that’s why they can be so mean. But if you get along with cats I think 23 is a good number of cats.

Anything you love watching on Netflix?

I just watched The End of The Fucking World and boy I got inspired. I fucking loved that shit. I wish I was as badass as Alyssa.

What helps you get in the creative mood?

A spliff and some coffee I think… and food. Lots of food. 

How much coffee is too much coffee?

Too much coffee is when I’m starting to shake cos I’m too lazy to cook food for myself.

What do you think is the most valuable way to spend your time?

The most valuable thing to spend my time is to hang out with my real friends and aft my main boy Pussel who is the love of my life. I like smoking weed in the forest with him the most I think…

What’s next for you?

MY DEBUT ALBUM MOTHAFOCKAZ…!!!

Much love urs truly – lil weed hoe


Thank you so much for your time Ängie! Stay dope!

The Stoner Girls’ Guide to Piercings By Bri [Ottawa]

Bri is a Professional Body Piercer at The Ink Spot in Canada’s snowy capital, Ottawa. She is a hilarious, creative, brilliant and brave woman! She’s also just literally the coolest. Not in the way some people are, where they actually just make you feel crummy about your own life or self. She’s cool in a way that fills you up with the sense that “life is a pretty fucking wild ride that we better enjoy.”

I would really like to get my septum pierced because of Bri’s Instagram account but I also almost faint when I scroll through it sometimes so … I’m going to have to toughen up before I sit in her chair. Please go get pierced by her and send me photos though, so I can vicariously live through you and then faint in the privacy of my own home.


I highly recommend following Bri’s piercing career here: https://www.instagram.com/piercings.by.bri/

Here are some of my favourite piercings she has done!


Here's a freshly paired double nostril from today!

A post shared by Piercings By Bri (@piercings.by.bri) on


Piercing living flesh is a pretty neat job. Especially because humans have such a long and interesting history with this art/skill/practice. Here’s a little video about the topic!



Now check out my chat with Bri the Piercer below!


What advice would you give to your 19-year-old self?
Dropout. Quit your job. Ditch your boyfriend and run away! It would have given me many more glorious years of hard travelling, just me, my backpack and the open road. Oh yeah and way less debt.
What do you think would happen if a 90-year-old woman accidentally fed a pan of hash brownies to a pack of squirrels?
Hilarity would ensue. Based on what I know about squirrels, they would most likely break into her house through her window screens and eat all her food. And maybe her face.
How do you feel about cats? And how many cats do you think are too many cats for one woman to own?
I love kitties! I think a woman should be able to have as many cats as she wants — as long as she can identify all of them by name, and care for them properly of course.
How much coffee is too much coffee?
Well, for me, any coffee is too much coffee. I stopped drinking it a few months ago. I’m all about the tea these days … don’t judge me!
Anything you love watching on Netflix?
I usually binge on Netflix for a while and then stop watching it for another while. Latest favourites have been Forensic Files, Stranger Things, Black Mirror, the OA and Fargo. I’ve been on a break lately though, instead I usually just watch re-runs of Jeopardy on YouTube.
What helps you get in a creative mood?
I am most creative when I have low stress and lots of free time. And when I smoke weed of course.
What do you think is the most valuable way to spend your time?
That’s a tough question. I find that when I’m nomadic I’m the most happy. But I suppose I can’t necessarily spend the rest of my life wandering. So I guess I would say not being stuck at a job 40 hours a week that you hate, which is lucky for me that I have a job I really enjoy. Umm, going to punk shows and fests is something I always make time for. And lastly, hanging out with my dog, my partner and my friends, always feels like a pretty rewarding way to spend my time.
Oh yeah, and reading too. I’ve really been into reading lately.
What’s next for you?
Only time will tell. But hopefully it involves an apartment with a soaker tub.
Thank you so much for your time Bri and for being such a rad, wonderful and inspiring human!

The Stoner Girl’s Guide to @eightyaday – [INTERVIEW]

Social media is the devil but I spend all my time on it praising satan and looking for art. Both those things are worthy pursuits. Right?

Recently discovered @eightyaday on Instagram. He is milling about the Montreal, Canada area and illustrates an impressive array of stuff. From happy looking oranges to raccoons smoking cigarettes — and I love all of it. I could literally just waste my whole life on this guy’s Instagram.

Here is a sample of his talent …



@eightyaday was kind enough to answer some questions for me.

Check out our chat below!


What advice would you give to your 19-year-old self?
Do whatever you want, everything will be fine, and here’s the winning lottery numbers.
What do you think would happen if a 90-year-old woman accidentally fed a pan of hash brownies to a pack of squirrels?
PETA would like ruthlessly doxx her probably. One time **someone** I know allegedly fed some deer or like some moose type horse thing some weed out of a car window and it ate it and I kinda felt bad about it.
How do you feel about cats? And how many cats do you think are too many cats for one woman to own?
They’re alright, they keep mice and rats and pigeons out of yer house, but who am I to say how many cats is too many? There’s like six or seven in my alley if anyone needs a cat lady starter pack.
How much coffee is too much coffee?
You’ll know, haha …
Anything you love watching on Netflix?
Animal Odd Couples is pretty good.
What helps you get into a creative mood?
Saturdays, permanent markers.
What do you think is the most valuable way to spend your time?
As close to that song Margaritaville as possible.
What’s next for you?
I just drank a 600mg iced THC tea so probably 2 KFC Big Crunch boxes.
Thanks so much for your time and for making art!
Your answer to the squirrel question made me spit soda across the room.
The End.

p.s. Here’s the aforementioned song. Just incase you were wondering how to live like Margaritaville.

The Stoner Girl’s Guide to New Portals

[Photo credit: BigBad Llama]


I was introduced to New Portals last winter and I have adored them ever since! This electronica indie pop duo hailing from the UK, is definitely one to watch, or rather, listen out for. There is something magic about their music and New Portals are creating momentum by putting in the work. I look forward to seeing them live someday, when they are doing a world tour!


This is the first song of their’s I heard and it is the perfect soundtrack to a snowy day.


Here they are doing a wicked live version of their tune, Groove Boy.


Last but not least, here is their latest, Sober.

 


I had the honour of interviewing New Portals. Check it out below!


What advice would you give to your 19-year-old self?

Take notice of what makes you happy and try to build a career of it. Educate yourself in contraception 🙂 Meditate every day.

What do you think would happen if a 90-year-old woman accidentally fed a pan of hash brownies to a pack of squirrels?

The squirrels would huddle together, give each other and the 90-year-old woman a nice shoulder massage and listen to some ambient chill-out from New Portals.

How do you feel about cats? And how many cats do you think are too many cats for one woman to own?

No rulez to the number baby. I’m allergic though, so that’s an issue…

How much coffee is too much coffee?

For me if I have 3+ per day that is too much and the irritable me comes out to play.

Anything you love watching on Netflix?

Really enjoyed ‘Easy’ and ‘ The Sinner’ recently. Easy is a series of snapshots from loosely connected couples as they go through an interesting life event. ‘Sinner’ is a psychological ‘whodunit’ with a really cool storyline. Both really good in different ways. We highly recommend them both.

What helps you get in the creative mood?

Changing it up. Picking up a new instrument. That’s one of the reasons we’ve just moved to London — we’re getting away from a lifestyle that had started to become too predictable. I’m also most productive after a great breakfast and a strong coffee.

What do you think is the most valuable way to spend your time?

Family time, quality connection time with people that I like. This thrills me.

What’s next for you?

We just moved to Hackney a few weeks ago so we are excited to get stuck into it all here. Got more tunes ready for consumption too. We’re going to play some shows, write some more and keep meeting awesome people!

Thank you so much for your time — and for being super dope!
