Trade Show of Our Own

Come with me
And you'll be

In a world of
Pure imagination
Take a look
And you'll see
Into your imagination
We'll begin
With a spin
Traveling in
The world of my creation
What we'll see
Will defy

If you want to view paradise
Simply look around and view it
Anything you want to, do it
Wanta change the world?
There's nothing
To it
-Mr. Willy Wonka


I really like the movie, “League of Our Own.” There are so many good parts, let alone quotable sections, (Crying? There’s no CRYING in Baseball!) that its one of those movies that when playing uncut on cable I’ll watch fifty minutes of it or so, just because it’s that good.

What I also like about the movie is how it taught me about the role women literally played in baseball and their historical significance. When the women walk through the Hall of Fame, THEIR Women’s Baseball Hall of Fame, the look on their eyes is priceless. Part astonishment that a place, a hall like this could exist commemorating something that otherwise might have been forgotten and a certain smile unable to hold back the pride of doing something first and without fanfare. Can you imagine finding a museum with your likeness held up high for the world to see as an innovator? In a way it’s like battle. You do something unexpected that you weren’t sure you had it inside you, but in the heat of the moment, you rose to the occasion. That’s why those women in the movie when their Hall of Fame open with the ribbon-cutting ceremony, the old players swarmed into the exhibit. They wanted to touch, feel, relive those moments that meant so much to them and now, was located in one central area. The look of recognition they had with each other as they relived moments from the photographs. Usually those silent nods to each other only come from individuals who have come together as a group to overthrow a bigger conflict.

Can you imagine?


I might be overstated the case a little, but I am so excited for the International Cannabis and Hemp Expo happening this weekend at the Cow Palace, here in the City. Not just because of all the booths with cool stuff and free swag. Not just because there will be a smoking lounge for the card carriers. Not just because my buddy, Josh from the Northlands might be there with his outrageous Sour Diesel. Y’know why I am so excited? I’m going to be with my people.

Granted living in San Francisco, you really don’t have to hide your smoking, but I still do.

I don’t smoke weed at my girlfriend’s parent’s parties. I don’t light up at work events unless it’s at my work, where it is encouraged.

I sense walking around the Cow Palace with thousands and thousands of stoners, is not only going to be fun, but I imagine it to be liberating. Think of it being one big collective bong hit that all goers are going to partake in and let it out to the cosmos as if to say, “Watch out, World, our time is coming.”

We will be like little red-eyed Energizer Bunnies, all recharged, ready to take our message to the masses.

“We’re Stoners. We’re Here. Get use to the Smell!”


It’s going to be a wild and fun weekend. If you’re wandering around, I’ll be by the California Grow Mug booth. Stop by and say, “high.”
