It's really slow, but once you get there the contact high is fantastic.

I know, I know, it's a slow loader...

The joint consumption during that last refrain is really implausible, as I imagine stringed instrument players value the ends of their fingers (unless they are sufficiently calloused). Here, let me help you with that.

A moment of silence for Uncle Shelby, please.

Willie's still got it. And the man can sing with anybody.

All it's missing is Johnny Cash, though the mix is still amazing. Thanks OP. Willie and them will get my money for this one.

if you're playing music and there is weed around, you probably have friends to hold a joint in front of their face.

I think the opposite question is the more relevant one, no?

(And speaking of country and Snoop: The Gourds cover "Gin and Juice".)

I love that cover or Gin and Juice.

God I can't even listen to the Gourds cover of Gin and Juice anymore. Back in the day I used to love that cover and get all mad when people would have it misslabled in their napster share folder as Phish.
Then I was at The Gorge in George WA for the Red Hot Chile Peppers and Kool Keith. I couldn't get a bag to save my life, but a friend of mine was working the load out of the show and promised me he could hook me up when he got done around 2am. He did, and the guy I was sharing a tent with started smoking at around 2:30 and didn't stop till we finished the bowl we packed at 4:20am. It was great.
The next morning the asshole next to us in the campground with the chevy tahoe with a great sound system started that song at about 9:30. He did not stop playing the song until at least after we left around 11.
I miss liking the Gourds.

My in-laws have a painting of Willie Nelson in their living room, and the story is that my wife was conceived either at or immediately following a Willie Nelson concert.

Plus, who wouldn't like to smoke weed with Willie? Aside from Toby Keith, that is.

Many musical pairings work out great. Some not so great. Snoop and Willie, awesome!
posted by JohnnyGunn at 9:34 AM on April 20, 2012


I'll never smoke weed with Willie again.

Ha! Once the song ends you can click on the roach, the sound of a lighter flicks and you get one last hit!

Fun! Willie is a national treasure. It's been years since I have seen him in concert and I am thinking that needs to change. He is in my neck of the woods soon but, drat, I will be away. He puts on an awesome concert and you will never see a more eclectic group of attendees.

This summer, apparently, Willie and Snoop are playing a set at Houston's Free Press Summer Fest approximately 1 mile from my house.

Obviously, I'm attending.

So, naturally, they unveiled a statue of Willie, given by an arts group, in front of the Moody Theater in Austin today at 4:20. Willie sang his song.

How can you not love Willie Nelson? I don't know how many days it would take to listen to all of my favorite Willie songs--with and without other people. I hope he goes on forever!

Cute, but not as cute as the Willie Nelson statue unveiling in Austin yesterday at 4:20 on 4/20.
