Night on the Town in NYC with Cheech and Bride-To-Be

Cheech, Tommy, pianist Natasha Rubin (Cheech's fiance) and Shelby Chong (Tommy's wife) are in New York City this week doing press for the Cheech & Chong: Light Up America tour. You may have heard the great interview Howard Stern did with Cheech, Tommy and Natasha on Monday. Cheech and Natasha announced they are getting married in August.

Howard and the rest of the Stern staff are huge fans. Richard Christy was wearing the Bong shirt we sent him a few months back.

They were also on Opie and Anthony. The interview went well and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. This is in contrast to the interview they did with Tommy in 2006 when he was promoting his first book, The I Chong).

Last night, Cheech and Natasha ate dinner at the Per Se restaurant in Manhattan. It has the same chef as the French Laundry in Napa Valley, and one of only 4 top rated Michelin guide restaurants in New York.

According to Natasha, "they gave us a royal treatment with a 13 course dinner (their usual is 7-9), crowned by a specially created (in honor of Cheech) Rice Dreams dessert, cinnamon-smoke-infused rice sorbet."

The Cheech & Chong tour comes to Westbury, NY this Thursday and Friday. The shows are sold out, but keep checking because there's always the chance seats will be released at the last minute.

Tommy Chong Comments on Edie Adams' Passing

"When I learned of Edie Adams passing today, I felt a wave of sadness come over me, as I remembered how brilliant she was as my mother in Up In Smoke. I remembered how we visited between takes listening to her stories about her late husband Ernie Kovac who was one of the top comedians of his day.

When you look at the scene in Up In Smoke when she is arguing with my movie dad, the great Struthers Martin, you have to be amazed at the star power that was driving that scene. "When boy when are you going to get a job"? Struthers Martin wrote his entire monologue, as did Edie. Cheech and I told them the scene and how it fit into the movie, but when it came to delivering the adlib lines both Struthers and Edie shone like the stars they were.

Edie was at the end of her career when she played my mother, but you would never know it watching her perform. I am in the process of obtaining every movie and every television show I can find that featured Edie Adams because I don't want her to ever go away. She will always live in my"

Mary Beth Strikes Again...Hide Your Fake Penises

US Attorney Mary Beth Buchanan is going after the "Whizzinator." You heard me...she's going after the manufacturers of a fake penis which helps people fool the drug testers.

"Undercover federal agents bought a Whizzinator, four heat pads, a vial of dehydrated urine and a syringe from the defendants in 2006 and 2007, each time at a cost of $157.50, the complaints state. " Plus, she's trying to seize their bank accounts.

This is the same Mary Beth Buchanan that wrongfully sent Tommy Chong to prison for nine months for conspiracy to send bongs in the mail.

This is the same Mary Beth Buchanan that raided Spectrum Labs and confiscated a/k/a Tommy Chong DVDs.

How classic is that? Your tax dollars at work.

Bring Cans of Food to the Westbury, NY Show

The Capital One Bank Theatre at Westbury has teamed up with rock CAN roll to 'beat hunger'. rCr volunteers are on site at all concerts, accepting food donations that are immediately distributed to local emergency food agencies and into the hands of men, women and children who live with hunger and in poverty.

Cheech & Chong 'FANS BRING CANS' or any healthy and nutritious non-perishable food donation to their concerts on Oct 23 and 24 in Westbury, NY.

rock CAN roll is a great way to empower people attending the shows to do something as simple as bringing 1 box of cereal, a can of tuna, or juice for example - to help children and their families who don't always have food to eat.

The Wire Interviews Cheech & Chong

The Wire had a chance to interview Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong via phone. Both were in Florida for their tour. Cheech was staying at the Ritz-Carlton under the assumed name Dick Gozinya.

Cheech says that he and Tommy are getting along. When Cheech was asked about marijuana, he says "I think it should be legal. I think it’s ridiculous that it’s not. I think that if they legalized marijuana tomorrow, it would do more for the economy than ten $700 billion bailouts.”

When asked about Arnold Schwarzenegger finally admitting he smoked pot with Tommy, Tommy says “I love the fact that he admits it. He fessed up to it. I tell people all the time, Arnold probably knows more about the human body than most doctors, and he would never put anything in his body that would harm himself.”

It's a really great interview.
