The Stoner Girl’s Guide to @junglestrikeguy

“Maybe an elite hacker, maybe just a guy who likes Night Court. NightDive Studios moderator. Dan O’Toole once gave me a shoutout on SportsCenter.

That might be his Twitter bio but @JungleStrikeGuy is more than the sum of those words, he is a super dope amazing human! For example, he is a fellow cats and cannabis enthusiast, a maker of amazing Volcano skins (see above) and an avid supporter of common sense when it comes to the regulation of The Devil’s Lettuce.

He one of my favourite people on the internet and he is literally one of the only people who makes cannabis politics palatable for me. How does he manage it you might ask, I don’t know but you can listen to his podcast on soundcloud at the following link or on YouTube below: https://soundcloud.com/user-840043661

I had the honour of interviewing @JungleStrikeGuy, check it out!


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

Buy Amazon stock, see Supertroopers more than once in the theater, go on that trip to Jamaica. Also probably make sure to save your VCR tapes of Video on Trial and The Buzz.

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 probably be very grateful, perhaps even make the woman a god in their squirrel-religions.

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

If cats understood computers they’d have built the singularity by now. You can never have too many cats, unless they start taking up floor space from your grow room.

How much coffee is too much coffee?

Probably when the barista notices if you’ve worn the same clothes two days in a row.

Anything you love watching on Netflix?

Under Arrest, which is To Serve and Protect condensed into 20 minute episodes, mostly for how polite the police are compared to their American cousins. I actually don’t watch that much on Netflix, but in other media I love comedy, especially anything Anthony Jeselnik or Daniel Tosh. And of course Twin Peaks, both old and new, just to keep life weird.

What helps you get in a creative mood?

90’s music, watching David Lynch as Gordon Cole eat a donut for a minute straight, and conversing with Weird Twitter.

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

Trying something at least once a month you’ve never done before is invaluable. Read things you disagree with, try and come up with logical arguments to support things you disagree with, the reason modern discourse is so polarized is that there’s very little desire for understanding. Even if you’re a serial entrepreneur, always buffer productivity with silliness and fun.

What’s next for you?

Hitting up the rest of the canna-conventions this year. Continuing to fight for evidence based drug policy in my capacity as a Twitter ne’er-do-well. Lots of miscellaneous computer things and hopefully learning how to not take 3 hours to edit a 20 minute podcast!

All worthy pursuits! Stay dope @JungleStrikeGuy — thanks so much for your time and for being you!

Toke it easy,

Onya

The Stoner Girl’s Guide to IDestroy [Interview]

Bristol grrrl rockers IDestroy just released a video for their first single Lemons, off their new EP Pure Joy Of Life, which will be out on March 9th, 2018!


I had the honour of chatting with IDestroy, check it out below!


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

Get your shit together, get out and tour!

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

Her buddies at the care home would be pissed!

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

Not for us to judge! A cat chooses its human so they will know when a home simply has too much pussy! We love cats.

How much coffee is too much coffee?

Any amount of coffee is too much coffee.

Anything you love watching on Netflix?

All of the documentaries, especially about nature, animals and controversial issues. Louis Theroux, Reggie Yates, David Attenborough, and all the climate change and vegan documentaries.

When that all gets a bit too depressing, Friends is always a good call!

What helps you get in a creative mood?

Mood lighting and being in a tidy space.

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

Hmm, getting naked.

What’s next for you?

We are just about to release a new EP – ‘Pure Joy of Life’ (out March 9th). After this we’re off touring the UK and Germany for a month. It’s our longest consecutive run of shows so far – we can’t wait!

Thank you so much for your time! Stay dope and happy trails!

The Stoner Girl’s Guide to The Nectars [Interview]

The Nectars are a fresh and trashy grrrl-fronted indie-punk band from New Jershey and they have just released their new single ‘I Want It’. It is sweet and salty indie-punk-pop and I think you will dig it and their latest video for their debut single, Heaven (below).


Had the honour of chatting with The Nectars’ leading-lady, Jessica Kenny.

So keep reading!


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

I would tell my 19 year old self that boys are yucky, they’ll be yucky 5 years from now. And actually they’ll always be yucky. But eventually one will come around who’s a little less yucky.

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 those squirrels would have a lit ass time. The real question is why does a 90-year-old woman happen to ‘accidentally’ have a pan of hash brownies…. and can we have some!?

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

I thought you’d never ask. I have 3 cats and we all sleep in a love pile. There is always room for more. No judgments here. I’m a cat lady and I’m OK with it. Boys are yucky, cats are not.

How much coffee is too much coffee?

Depends who you’re asking. Our guitarist, Baron, could consume an endless amount of coffee on the daily. I, myself, stick to one cup or I start acting more weird than usual.

Anything you love watching on Netflix?

Stranger Things

🖖🏼

What helps you get in a creative mood?

WINE! I’ll take a glass of Sauvignon Blanc please. Also I enjoy doing some free flow dance to get those creative juices flowing. Nothing better than getting real fluid and gooey before writing a track.

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

This depends on what type of mood I’m in. Most importantly, I try to nurture my craft no matter what I’m doing. Whether it’s music, yoga, making merch, and even interacting in relationships… I’m always pushing for creativity and staying true to my artistry.

What’s next for you?

We have so much to share with you guys. From songs, to music videos, to new merch. I’m excited to keep releasing new content and adding more friends/fans to our Nectar fam. That’s what this is all about for us! Also looking forward to playing more shows and to continue GROWING together as a band and as individuals. It’s a beautiful thing and we’re stoked to share it all!

Thank you so much for your time Jessica! Stay dope. 🙂

The Stoner Girl’s Guide to Carole Pope [Interview]

If for some strange reason you don’t know who Carole Pope is, here’s an interview Strombo did with her not too long ago. I highly recommend watching it!


I love Carole Pope and had the honour of chatting with her too. Check out our chat below!

She gives herself the best advice. 🙂


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

Men are full of shit.

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

They’d start ripping food out of peoples hands and then chill out in a stoner heap.

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

Love cats but two is my limit.

How much coffee is too much coffee?

As many cups it takes to make you look like a meth-head.

Anything you love watching on Netflix?

The new version of She’s Gotta Have it and Jessica Jones.

What helps you get in the creative mood?

Procrastinating and reading.

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

Hiking, going to the beach and traveling to Europe.

What’s next for you?  

New video for my latest single This Is Not A Test.

Thank you so much for your time Carole! Stay dope. 🙂

The Stoner Girls’ Guide to @420hayzee

@420hayzee is currently skateboarding around Hong Kong, loving weed, cats and the graffiti life. I met him like a million years ago and he was the opposite of the Grinch. His heart is two sizes too big! Which is a trait I greatly value in humans.

Here is a photo series glimpse into @420hayzee’s life!

Chatted with @420hayzee about the usual, check it out below!

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

To save some fuckin money – wish I had developed this habit when I was younger so that I would have had some extra cash to travel and do some more shit while I was studying and after I graduated.

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

You would inevitably get a pack of the worlds hungriest and laziest squirrels. She’d would witness them try to climb up a tree, get about half way and watch them go “aw fuck it I’m just gonna climb back down, stuff my face with some acorns and nap for the rest of the day, thanks Grandma!”

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

I love cats, got two myself. Although they can be the most destructive force in my apartment, their just too damn cute and they get all my love.

If there is enough space, I don’t think you can put a limit on the potential number of cats a woman can own! Ever hear of Aoshima Island in Japan?

How much coffee is too much coffee?

When the heartburn starts to kick in, usually after my 4th cup. I have good will power when it comes to coffee though, so usually limit myself to 2-3 cups a day.

Anything you love watching on Netflix?

Manhunt: Unabomber is an awesome show, so is Brooklyn Nine-Nine, but of my favourite show on Netflix at the moment is Big Mouth. The Hormone Monster is one of the greatest characters ever created! I’m thinking of painting him next actually… either that or my idea of a “Vandal Rick” from Rick and Morty.

What helps you get in a creative mood?

A fat blunt or joint, good tunes, being in my comfortable space and wearing the comfiest shit I own. When I feel nice and relaxed I can let my mind wander and expand. All my sketches and drawings are done high and I learned most of skateboarding tricks while stoned.

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

Self-improvement. No matter what it is you want to do, just make sure you are trying to do it better the next time, then no time can ever be wasted.

What’s next for you?

More painting and night missions – there are lots of districts in Hong Kong to cover and by the end of the year I want to be up in every district. Then travel around Asia and get up on the walls wherever I go!

Also, I have a business plan in the works of a warehouse where anyone can come paint on the walls, providing a safe and comfortable space for those who want to learn how to graff or improve their skills and techniques. Then at night on the weekends, turn the warehouse into a party spot n throw some old school get down style events and parties.

Thanks so much for your time @420hayzee! Stay dope!
