Chobani Yogurt And US Air Force Fiasco Exposes Dark Underbelly Of The Drug War

Chobani Yogurt And US Air Force Fiasco Exposes Dark Underbelly Of The Drug War

by Chris Conrad It’s easy to understand why Chobani added hemp seeds to its Blueberry Power Flip brand of Greek yogurt. Hempseed is an amazingly nutritious and meaty fruit. It has a crunchy texture, a nutty flavor and a wide array of essential fatty acids, essential proteins and minerals, as well as some rare digestive […]

Pacifica Radio, A Truly Progressive Voice of Dissent

Pacifica Radio, A Truly Progressive Voice of Dissent

Everyone loves a good NPR piece. For a long time, it was my go-to radio station. Recently, however, I’ve found a new love in Pacifica Radio. What is amazing about Pacifica is, well, everything. In an age of government spying, covert wars, and a crackdown on civil liberties, it is increasingly important to have a full […]

On The Warpath: Anger, Sex & Foreplay

On The Warpath: Anger, Sex & Foreplay

I once lived with a couple of gay body builders. They used anger as foreplay, creating jealous scenarios of infidelity (which in reality they were ok with) and would prompt each other to throw fists. The fists would fly, mirrors would break and fifteen minutes later there was ass-slapping and moaning coming from the bedroom. […]

Music is the most fittingly descriptive and beautiful diary one could write or read. Deejays tend to play music that mirrors their audience, they play what the […]

Big Brother Is Listening: Zombies, Brunch And An Afternoon With FBI Agents

Big Brother Is Listening: Zombies, Brunch And An Afternoon With FBI Agents

I love zombies. Not in a creepy, borderline necrophilia kind of way, but more in a guilty pop culture way. If I had to pick one single favorite film, it would have to be Shaun of the Dead. I’ll watch anything with zombies in it at least once, even Zombie Strippers. I write about zombies. […]

REVIEW: Endangered Species Chocolate

REVIEW: Endangered Species Chocolate

Sometimes you really need to eat some chocolate. It is almost a meditative undertaking, especially when you eat good quality chocolate. For just a moment you can pause to savor the uniquely healing flavor. And never has it been a better time to justify eating it. Sugar, butter and milk fat dilute the health benefits […]

My Dad’s Dabble With Dabs

My Dad’s Dabble With Dabs

There’s been a lot of hype in the popular press lately about the use of butane hash oil (BHO), also referred to as “dabs.” Reports suggesting that dabs can lead to wild and immediate addiction or that the process of extracting the oil is going to blow up your house, AND YOUR ENTIRE NEIGHBORHOOD!!! are […]

How I Became An All-Organic Marijuana Grower

How I Became An All-Organic Marijuana Grower

All photos by Jessica Catalano My experience growing marijuana was minimal at best when I lived on the East and West coast. I would help people water, trim and babysit, but I never had the chance to utilize those skills to branch out on my own. When I first started growing in Colorado, it didn’t […]
