clean bongs, evil bongs, ones as big as your head

It is a venerated, global holiday of great import on Sunday, April 20. And it is also Easter.
(Look, I’m hungover from a grand total of three beers, so this is the best I can do today.)
Actually, 4/20 is the day when Fest 13 passes go on sale. Descendents, Hot Water Music, Dear Landlord, Marked Men and literally 200 other amazing bands are playing this year. Flying all the way to Florida to spend four days drinking beer and watching punk bands might sound like a ridiculous way to spend your hard-earned money, but I promise that it is the best goddamn time of your life and you will make some of the best friends ever and probably also make out with strangers. (I mean, maybe you will. I certainly wouldn’t do such a thing.)
Anyhoo, Ol’ Doris and Stab Me Kill Me play some joint in Kalispell tonight and the Palace tomorrow. OL DORIS IS PLAYING TOTAL FEST!! There are a ton of other excellent bands on the lineup for Total Fest this year, according to my contact on the TF committee (um, that would be myself) but this is the first announced one. Total Fest will announce more soon. Incidentally, have you ever tried to organize contracts with dozens of metalheads/punks? Uuuurgh.
I could honestly care less about 4/20, but for friends who do, here’s How to Clean Your Bong. Good stuff to know, rite? Jolie Kerr is worth reading regardless; she is hilarious and awesome and full of wisdom. Like, add a cup of white vinegar to your loads and they’ll come out way cleaner, even at the crappy gas station laundromat. Life changing, that is.
Also the Wilma is showing the b-horror film Gingerdead Man Vs. Evil Bong on Sunday at 7 PM, and I gather that it is as intelligent a film as its title would lead one to believe.
As always, lovelies, party on.
