With the Oscars coming up this weekend I thought it would be interesting to create my own award category for stellar performances that deserve recognition. I realize there are alot of potential winners in the “stoner” category but I have managed to narrow it down to an Olympic podium of Kush greatness. It is hard to leave out Jeff Bridges in The Big Lebowski or Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong in Up in Smoke or Rory Cochrane as Slaterson in Dazed and Confused, or even Jason Mewes in every Kevin Smith movie.
BRONZE MEDAL: Brad Pitt in Tarantino’s True Romance.
“…you guys wanna smoke a bowl or….oh.”
SILVER MEDAL: James Franco and Seth Rogan’s 4-minute scene from Pineapple Express. I would love to know how much of this was improvised.
Smell it, smell it, it’s like God’s vagina.
“Fuck Jeff Goldblum man.”
GOLD MEDAL: Jeremy Piven as ‘Scawldy’ in Highway. Jared Leto and Jake Gyllenhaal get to sit back and be a part of crazy drugged out cinema acting greatness!

“I got it all, i got the kind Daffy fuckin’ bud, the hydro hydro nuggety nuggs, red fibre…sshhhhh…herbal medication sweep upon the nation.”


“Giving Up the Gun” is (arguably) the best song from Vampire Weekend’s superb new album ‘Contra’, and the track’s music video has the potential to boost it even further. According to an Anthem interview with the clip’s co-director, Emmett Malloy, it revolves around a “bizarre-o tennis match” featuring Jake Gyllenhaal, Lil Jon and Joe Jonas of the Jonas Brothers. Any excuse to have a picture of Jake shirtless. Oh please, don’t even pretend to look away!
