Stressed: The Life & Art of Matt Reid by Michael Gonzales

“it’s virtually impossible to talk about Organized Konfusion’s genre-busting album without waxing poetic about Matt Reid’s bold mix of graphic design, comic books, collage, sci-fi, animation and surrealism. Sharing rack space beside scores of eye-catching rap covers, including Daniel Hastings’ disturbing cover shots for Gang Starr (Hard to Earn) and Jeru the Damaja (The Sun Rises in the East), the far out beauty of Stress stood out. Before one even listened to the record, Reid’s image served as an introduction to the left-of-center urgency of the group.”

The Cigarette Century

James Bosnack’s invention of the cigarette-rolling machine in 1880 helped propel the early 20th century economy forward, making the mass-production of cigarettes a “Potent Symbol of Velocity for the New Modern Age.”

Ladies, forget about Astroglide. It’s all about weed lube

Though he didn’t slip out, Canada’s self-proclaimed ‘Prince of Pot’ has been released from US Prison.

Ironically, even after calling for the legalization of pot, the NY Times still administers drug tests for it

So, should the NCAA keep bothering with weed tests too?

And we all know that the legal pot trade could be big business. And with all that potential marketshare, most big corporations are against it

But at least the industry now has an armored truck to move all that legal weed money around

New Nazca Lines

nazca-lines

After a recent sandstorm blew topsoil off of some hills in the Chincha Valley in Southern Peru, a pilot noticed “a snake (approximately 196 feet in length), a bird, a camelid (perhaps a llama) and some zig-zag lines” on the desert floor. While these new findings have yet to be validated by archaeologists, the other mysterious geoglyphs and lines in the desert have been thought to be everything from maps and advertisements for people coming off of the surrounding mountains to an alien airport with runways for UFOs.
