Tonight marked Tommy Chong's New York Marijuana-Logues debut. See potshow.com for ticket information.
This is the first time we've seen this show. It's funny, not just a little funny, but a lot funny. The Actor's Playhouse is a small venue so every seat is a good seat. Essentially, it's a parody of the Vaginia-Logues. Three stoners, on stage at the same time, read their journals. The show is constantly evolving. The performers add new jokes daily and often improv.
Tommy was fantastic. He doesn't have the entire script memorized yet and one or two of the jokes written by the other performers didn't flow well. This worked to the show's benefit. When Tommy was tripped up, he would leave the script and throw in his own jokes. His jokes brought the biggest laughs. He and the other performers often threw in references to Tommy's arrest. We, the audience and the other performers constantly laughed out loud.
Tommy will only be with the New York Marijuana-Logues til December 19th. Then, the show heads to the West coast. If you're in the area, do not miss this opportunity to see it.
We had a chance to speak with Tommy Chong after the show.
He revealed that the director, Larry Charles, left the reunion movie project to work on a television series. New Line is currently looking for a new director. If New Line is reading this, they should hire David Leiner, the director of Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle. That's just a Cheech and Chong Dot Com wish.
There is also a rumor floating around that Tommy Chong cannot be near bongs or drug-related items during the filming of their new movie. Wrong! When the films starts filming this spring, his probation will be over. Furthermore, these items are props.
One of the most frequently asked questions we receive is "Who is performing the Hell On Wheels song in Next Movie?". Tommy confirmed that it's Steve Lukather of the band Toto.
In the following articles, Chong discusses the show and says he is finishing up his auto-biography and will be returning to That 70s Show next season.

During the interview, Cheech mentioned that he still gets huge residual checks for the movie Up In Smoke. When asked about Tommy's imprisonment, Cheech calls Ashcroft a "fuckin' Nazi." Chong considers it good publicity.
Here's a great quote from Cheech: "We did six records, then six movies," says Cheech. "Now we need to do six of something else, so we get 666 - and then our master Satan can return!"Read this article.

Update: For a summary, see Marks Friggin. During the interview, he discussed his incarceration, the Marijuana-Logues and made mention of the time Bobby Capps hung a sign from an overpass to protest his incarceration.
Monday, November 29, 2004
Update: Hysterical appearance, great jokes about Martha Stewart, promoted Marijuana-logues. Tommy said that he and Cheech were almost finished writing the reunion movie, but the director, Larry Charles, is now working on a TV project. As a result, the project will be delayed. During his appearance, Tommy salsa danced with Amy Poehler of SNL, during which she copped a feel. Way to go Tommy!
Saturday, November 27, 2004
Update: More of a conversation, than an interview. It was funny, but didn't learn too much. Interview focused on Cheech's Chicano art collection and Christmas With The Kranks.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Mary Houghton, who handles forfeiture, won for her work as team leader on "Operation Pipe Dreams," a nationwide prosecution of drug paraphernalia dealers, including actor Tommy Chong, that started in Pittsburgh."
What a friggin joke! She won an award for convicting Tommy for smoking prop dope in a movie . That's like sentencing Marlon Brando for the Godfather films.

Tonight the Weedmaster was at the star-studded premiere of Christmas With The Kranks at New York's Radio City Music Hall. People began arriving shortly after 6PM. On hand were William H. Macy, Tim Allen, Eddie Murphy, Jake Busey, Caroline Rhea, Jamie Lee Curtis, WWF's Mankind and Dan Aykroyd, many of whom star in the film.
But wait, we almost forgot....one of the two funniest comedians of all time, Cheech Marin, was there. He is also part of The Kranks cast.
The Weedmaster had a chance to speak with Cheech during the long wait for his car. When asked about the reunion movie, he said that New Line is still in the process of writing the script and that the pot hair tonic concept is still the basis.
The Weedmaster also asked him about where the Basketball Jones cartoon originated (the one featured in Being There). He said it was created by a friend of Lou Adler's to promote the Basketball Jones single and that the Being There producers just decided to use it. He didn't know where to get the full version, but we assume that Warner Bros owns the rights.
Cheech was on his way to the UK for the launch of Sony's Cheech and Chong DVD box set we mentioned last week (see 11.03.2004 below). The signing is Friday 11/19 @ Fopp Charing Cross Rd @ Noon.
The post-premiere party, which we did not attend, was held in Central Park.

The legendary outlaw, Bobby Capps, is filing the necessary forms to get Tommy pardoned. Tommy had been prosecuted by Ashcroft for a crime he did not commit. It's time to clear his name. Bobby was pivotal in the Free Tommy movement. He performed numerous stunts designed to bring awareness to people, including hanging a sign from the side of a bridge and building snowmen with Free Tommy signs along Route 80.

Cheech and Chong films.
Description: Rachael Ray travels to Malibu, CA for lunch at the beachfront home of Cheech Marin. Cheech takes Rachel on a tour of the grounds and talks about his extensive collection of Chicano art. Then, it's into the kitchen to prepare a banana blossom salad.
No word on what kind of greens were in that salad.
This isn't Cheech's first appearance on TFN. He was also on "Bill Bogg's Corner Table" back in 2000, where he introduced Bill to Aqua's ice cream sodas.
Cheech is known for his culinary taste. He is part owner of the infamous Ana Mandara, a Vietnamese restarant in San Francisco, CA. Who's his partner? His Nash Bridges co-star, Don Johnson.

Update: Once again, Allan conducted a very thorough interview. Here are the highlights.
- When the agents raided Chong's house, they weren't looking for drugs, they were looking for bongs and weapons. Tommy explained that if you are busted for bongs and also have a weapon in your house, it increases the length of your sentence (even if you have a permit).
- Agents appeared to be embarassed that they had to conduct this raid.
- Agents confiscated the bongs, but left the opium pipes because Operation Pipedream only wanted marijuana-related items.
- Tommy expects the new Cheech and Chong movie to enter production this September.

As revealed earlier by Cheech and Chong Dot Com, Cheech Marin made a surprise visit. Tommy and Cheech once again confirmed that they are working on a new movie.

Earlier today, Tommy Chong was finally released from California's Taft Correctional.
Tommy had been serving a nine month sentence because Chong Glass shipped bongs to Pennsylvania via US Mail. Ironically, Tommy did not own, nor operate Chong Glass. The business merely used Chong's likeness.
It was all part of the Bush/Ashcroft "religious right" crusade. Tommy was punished for his movies, not for anything he did. Dozens of other headshops were busted during the same Operation Pipedreams crusade. However, Tommy was the only one who served time.
The Feds told Tommy Chong that if he didn't take the rap for Chong Glass, his wife and son would. They also promised Tommy that they would be lenient on him. THEY LIED!

Jay claims this will be his first interview after being released. However, Tommy told Howard Stern that he'd appear on his show first. What's the truth? The truth is that Howard is on vacation that week so he blew his shot to have Chong first.
UPDATE: BOTH CHEECH AND CHONG WILL BE ON THE SHOW!!!

How did he do it? He piggy-backed the bill onto a military spending bill. This is why it has received so little press coverage. No one noticed.
Senators were "for" the military bill so rather than taking the time to remove the indecency portion, they just passed it.
But wait, it gets worse. Senator Brownback (who lives in a mansion paid for by a religious cult) wants to increase the fines to $3 million per offense, rather than $500,000. This means that both the entertainer and the station he works for have to pay $3 mill each for a total of $6 mill.
Powell's son runs the FCC and can declare anything indecent. What gives him the right? He is President Bush's pawn.
First, Tommy was thrown in prison for a crime he did not commit. Now this. No more Cheech and Chong films are allowed on network television. The future of the Howard Stern radio show is also in jeopardy. He will most likely move to satellite radio. See XMSR and SIRI.

Sacred Cow Productions had the opportunity to interview Tommy Chong at Taft Correctional recently. The majority of the footage will be used in Sacred's upcoming film about the drug war.
Among other things, Tommy calls the drug war illegal and unconstitutional, discusses President Bush and estimates that he's missed out on approximately $5 million of potential income while in prison.
This interview is the best we've seen yet.

When & Where?NEW DATE: April 30th 2004NEW LOCATION: Calico Jacks, 1259 State Road 436, Casselberry FL.
Why?As you have probably heard by now, on September 11, 2003 cultural icon Tommy Chong was sentenced to nine months in federal prison for his role in selling glass water pipes on the Internet through his legally licensed company Tommy Chong Glass. Tommy Chong is the first person to be prosecuted under John Ashcroft's "Operation Pipe Dreams" and "Operation Headhunter," which shut down national glass distributors nationwide, resulting in the indictment of over 55 people.Tommy Chong was obviously targeted by the federal government because of his status as a cult figure among marijuana smokers. The federal raids on paraphernalia distributors has been an utter waste of time and money, while it has ruined the lives and careers of otherwise law abiding citizens. These businesses pay taxes and do not in any way contribute to the crime problem in America. To target them at this time shows a total lack of understanding as to which risks truly threaten the health, welfare and safety of America's citizens.
On April 30th , 2004 there will be a concert to raise signatures and awareness on behalf of Tommy Chong, We believe that he was unfairly imprisoned and needs your help . So, come out to Calico Jacks and help support Tommy Chong while having a booty shakin', rockin' time!
