    @Mr. C

    I like that quote because to me it suggests that one who lives outside the law (not against the law) understands the weight of the decisions they make.

    For me that quote is about the starkness of existence. If you are honest with yourself you will realize that the law does not determine your actions or probably in a better way: the law should not be an excuse one way or the other. an honest person understands that he or she determines his or own actions. and at that point, that person lives outside the law. sometimes with it, sometimes against it, but honestly outside it.

    just my way of looking at. similar to yours i think.

    Gotta love the BB.

    Dont know what Id do without this place.

    You guys are the cats ass!

  3. Mr. Completely Says:

    I like Waka/Jawaka as well

    definitely 2nd tier after hot rats and the others, but I just spun it again recently for the first time in quite awhile and liked it

  4. SillyWilly Says:

    Of course, my thoughts on that Dylan quote missed the whole growing debate, so i might be missing the whole point

  5. KWL Says:

    I have seen cats’ asses before.

    mostly it ended up with me wishing I was not looking at a cat’s ass.

    currently reading:

    shakey – the neil young biography

    on deck:
    pollan’s “omnivore’s dilemma”

    just wrapped:
    “please kill me” – an amazing oral history of the pre punk movement from the velvets/warhols factory thru detroit/iggy/mc5 to nyc and cbgbs/television/richard hell and the voidoids/new york dolls/ramones, etc. such a great fun informative and easy read. a must.

    extremely well put

    I think you cut much closer to the core meaning of that lyric than what I was saying

    the point I was making is specific to the outlaw social context I was talking about, one of the great things about a good line of poetry is that it has many facets

  8. Mr. Completely Says:

    I’m w/@KWL re: cat’s ass question

  9. ohhphee Says:


    Glad I could help. He had such a huge catalog of music that’s all over the spectrum. Definitely an acquired taste for most people, but hey you already like a band like that, so you’ll probably find something you like.

    and I’ll definitely second that sentiment about the BB and its vast resources.

  10. gavinsdad Says:

    i really missed something not being at big cypress didn’t I?

    shit that roses…i’d like to see a great big fat sundown roses thrown down at one of my shows. talkin about bliss….

  11. gavinsdad Says:

    ^shows this summer i meant to say

  12. KWL Says:

    @MrC, can you point me towards any further reading re: ganja as revolutionary as per your earlier comments? websites, books, political groups, whatever.

  13. ChefBradford Says:

    My Left Toe 7/21/99 = bliss

    gave it another run a little while ago

    can’t get enough of it

    same with 12/30/09 Corrina

    Anytime I bring up BC with my buddy Pascal, who was there, he just gets all Cheshire Cat – like. And not the ass part. llfa!

    i wish i was around for the outlaw social context debate. i’d love to learn with you guys about this as i head into my summer job.

    i think the important thing to remember about the law is it shouldn’t be viewed as an ethic. im preaching to the choir with you all, but most people don’t see it this way.

    marijuana is bad because its illegal. What!? so was integration in the 60s….

  17. Mr. Completely Says:

    not really man, sorry

    others might be able to help you more, I know plenty of people have written on the topic but it’s not something I really read about…there seem to be plenty of flakes on the train as well, that kind of muddies the waters I think

    even going to like rallies and stuff, the speakers and stuff usually just seem kind of boring to me…I totally agree…yep…

    i lived it growing up and now I guess my opinions are set

  18. Mr. Completely Says:

    @Silly, it’s just back mid-day or so

    I got a little more ornery than I should have

  19. ohhphee Says:


    Yeah, it’s weird how people can be. I know people who have no problem with weed and who would actually partake, but they don’t because it’s illegal. But speed limits are just suggestions to some of those same people, even though a lot more harm can come from breaking speed laws than pot laws.

  20. Mr. Completely Says:

    starts on p16 with my post about possible legalization in Cali

  21. gavinsdad Says:

    hey C – i sure hope i can boil this idea/thought down (good luck) but i did wonder to myself, and amongst friends, if, after “legalization” that the same market economics wouldn’t apply to the most A grade herb. much like the artisinal cheese you linked to way back….there will be this strange transitional period of gutting and evening out. but after all the fly by nighters and speculators get in on the weed game, doesn’t it still stand to reason that the folks growing the truly heritage and pedigreed strains from seed to bagged, cured and distro’d will see their particular herb rise to the top. and by rise to the top i mean garner the most per pound?

    i think that connoisseurship (is that a word?) won’t go away, much like the way that the Napa vineyards have a cult following. those vineyards have smaller acreage, and smaller output, but a finer product and a higher margin.

    when might you think that your oregon brethren might feel the benefits of this market adjustment? 3 years post legalization? 1 year? never?

  22. gavinsdad Says:

    it stands to reason that just like any other commodity or product, just because weed is legal doesn’t mean i’m gonna sit on a half pound headstash at all times (unless i’m Raekwon). i think all people, if we looked at this legalization hypothesis in a statewide way, will also just get into a routine as to how much they buy, burn and buy again. once this larger wave of commerce settles, i’d think that all the people who flooded into the legal market as growers or distributors, will be weeded out…leaving the best in the biz once again at the top of the production line. is this way too naive a viewpoint?

  23. SillyWilly Says:

    I was just reading over that stuff. Very good points all around, I think.

    Most of my professors seem to think the Supreme Court would support legalization if Congress passed it.

    They think in 12-15 yrs we could see it happen.

    I know we all understand here, but I just don’t get the big deal about it. I mean isnt alcohol clearly worse for you.

    Hell, isn’t fast food clearly worse for you.

    I don’t know, just expressing my frustrations to people I know understand.

  24. SillyWilly Says:

    and i need two ?s there.

    and by the big deal I meant…why are people so scared about marijuana?

  25. KWL Says:

    @gdad, unfortunately marketing will be a huge piece of your puzzle.

    there is also the question of brute economics. someone mentioned earlier that weed could become the next phase for big tobacco. This is possible. The artisan growers could be pushed out if corporate capital wants market share bad enough. Never completely, but many small growers could be devastated.

    look at what happened to beer. Only now are craft brewers staging a comeback, they were gone for a long time, under pressure from corporate conglomerates with huge advertising budgets and ability to control distribution networks.
