There Will Never Be Another Cheech and Chong Film

This past weekend, Tommy Chong's newly-divorced daughter, Rae Dawn Chong, was interviewed at the New England Super Megafest's inaugural Spring Fever Spectacular.  During the interview, they asked if her dad was comfortable with her being nude in Caveman and Quest of Fire.  She said he was.

However, the most interesting statement was when she was asked if she would be in a Cheech and Chong film.  Rae Dawn said it's 'never going to happen, because her father isn't acting anymore, and that he's too busy with his stand-up comedy and a line of marijuana paraphernalia.'

That doesn't mean they won't make appearances in other films.  They will most likely be in the upcoming crowd-funded film, Super Troopers 2.

Scared Stoned with Tommy Chong

In honor of 4/20, Funny or Die put together a video of Tommy Chong and his friends getting high. Then, they tried to scare them with far out questions and fake cop.  They did a great job.

Tommy Chong at Hash Bash

Tommy Chong was the guest of honor at this weekend's Hash Bash in Ann Arbor, Michigan.  Tommy received the key to the city and gave a fantastic speech predicting the elimination of the Nixon-created DEA.  In addition, he did a countdown to 4:20 by doing the infamous 'mellow' speech from Up in Smoke.

This was an especially poignant time because earlier this week, the jerk marijuana lobbyists in Washington DC notified Tommy that they no longer wanted to be associated with him.

Cheech and Chong Playing Pemberton Festival

Rappers Kendrick Lamar and Missy Elliott, rockers The Black Keys and Weezer, and electronic stars Tiesto and J. Cole top the bill for this year’s Pemberton Music Festival.

The festival, held July 16-19 north of Whistler, announced its lineup Wednesday morning, on April Fool’s Day, leading fans to suspect the announcement may have been a joke after weeks of anticipation and hints being dropped on social media.

“We might be announcing our lineup on April Fool’s Day, but we aren’t joking around,” HUKA Entertainment co-founder A.J. Niland said in a press release. “The lineup is exceptionally deep and each and every day will be full of surprises and special moments to match the magic of our beautiful Pemberton Valley festival site. It’s always a bit of a battle as a small indie promoter to get the acts you want, but we worked extra hard this year to make sure we’re bringing the best to B.C.”

Other notable performers include Vancouver favourites Dan Mangan + Blacksmith and rising star Tobias Jesso Jr.

Electronic dance music is once again a big component at the festival, with big EDM names like Bassnectar and the Full Flex Express featuring Jack U, the project of electronic superstars Skrillex and Diplo, also in the mix.

Rounding out the event are a gaggle of comedians including Tim & Eric, Cheech & Chong, Reggie Watts and Doug Benson.
