Stoney McDougal: Not Just for Concert Reviews Anymore
Curious about Stoney McGee’s plans when not contributing to concert reviews? What, you thought I made him up? No way. Stoney McDougal lives on. You might even know him. In fact, we’re pretty sure you do know him.
His 4/20 agenda:
9:00 – Wake and bake.
9:15 – Fall asleep watching “Sponge Bob Square Pants.”
10:00 – Wake and bake.
10:15 – Nap.
10:35 – Jolted awake by Dora the Explorer and her monkey “friend.”
10:45 – Load bowl to chill out. Add water to milk carton to make enough milk for Cap’n Crunch.
11:00 – Turn on “Price is Right.”
11:05 – Debate roommate: “Drew Carey vs. Bob Barker – Who’s better?” for 529th time.
11:10 – Lose remote.
11:15 – Lose pipe.
11:20 – Business idea: universal remote/bong combo.
11:30 – Look for suitable apple or can.
11:35 – Fashion gravity bong vaporizer out of two liter bottle of coke, a hairdryer and the toilet tank.
11:57 – Beat roommate in showcase showdown. Celebratory smoke.
12:00 – Victory lunch at Star Pizza buffet (skip salad bar), make lemonade out of lemons, water, sugar.
1:00 – Catalina’s: pick-up morning coffee and rolling papers.
1:15 – Back to apartment for coffee and a cig… and a smoke.
1:30 – Nap.
2:15 – Roll and burn.
2:20 – Weather question turns into conversation about why the sky is blue and whether “your blue is *my* blue and maybe we all have the same favorite color but just perceive that color differently.” Neighbor stops by and drops a few quantum physics/string theory references he picked up on Oprah.
2:35 – While working out the chord progression to “Pass the Dutchie,” form jam band with roommate and neighbor.
2:47 – Band breaks up over creative differences, i.e. who is a bigger influence: Jack Johnson or Bob Schneider. Ben Harper, obviously.
2:55 – Hookup from last night stumbles out of bedroom; she finds pipe and loads.
3:00 – Responding to occupational query, share business plan. Model essentially: guns down, drugs up. Motto: one big score and we’re out.
3:15 – Head out to pseudo-love-in/definite-smoke-out at Menil Park.
3:30 – Discussion about the Indica Olympics on Earth Day. Best event — The Kush Pentathlon (events: disc golf, hackey sack, stick juggling, ultimate, and longest huck (bike or skateboard) while avoiding security/police).
3:45 – Nap.
4:15 – Cheetos. With peanut butter dip.
4:30 – Burn.
4:45 – Nap.
5:25 – Pick-up late morning coffee.
6:30 – Liberty Station.
8:00 – Robert Ellis and the Boys @ Fitz.
11:30 – Taco Bell.
