Relive This Awesome “Crosseyed And Painless” Into “Steam” From Phish’s First Ever Show In Jacksonville [HD Video]

first_imgThis past October, Phish embarked on a Fall tour for the first time since 2014. The run kicked off in Charleston, SC on Friday, October 14th, and after a two-night stand, they moved to Jacksonville, FL for their first ever performance in the city. The band stuck to their mantra of “never miss a sunday show”, delivering an high-energy performance at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena, leaving an impression on excited Northern Florida fans who’ve been waiting decades for the band to come to their city.The show was marked by many fun moments, with “Stash” and the “Mike’s Groove” pairing making appearances in the first set, new fan-favorite composition “Petrichor” was trotted out, and “Piper” and “Run Like An Antelope” rounded out a super-charged second set. Phish even busted out “The Ballad Of Curtis Loew” as a tribute to hometown heroes Lynard Skynyrd. Perhaps the highlight of the show, however, was the second-set-opening “Crosseyed and Painless”. The twenty minute segment featured sinister improvisation out of the Talking Heads’ classic that eventually dissolved into the funky rocker “Steam”, which of course contained “still waiting” quotes from “Crosseyed and Painless”.Now, we can re-live this excellent performance, thanks to LazyLightning55a, who recently uploaded super clear 4K ultra HD footage from this great moment in Jacksonville. The video is below, for your viewing pleasure.last_img read more

Cannabis gummy bears could be banned under law reform

first_imgNewsHub 9 May 2019Family First Comment: Far more to worry about than just gummi bears.This shows just how naïve OR misleading the Greens are being around the real risks of cannabis products. #saynopetodopeGreen MP Chlöe Swarbrick has brushed off National’s concerns around cannabis-infused edibles, suggesting most types will likely be banned.National’s drug law reform spokesperson Paula Bennett said cannabis-infused edibles could be “dressed up so they’re appealing to young people and accidental use is of real concern”.Swarbrick wouldn’t confirm cannabis-infused gummy bears would definitely be banned, but said there was consensus among the Greens, Labour and New Zealand First that protecting children and displacing the black market were top priorities.“In line with all of those things, it’s pretty evident that we will be following what other jurisdictions have done in terms of banning or ensuring that we won’t have gummy bears.”Swarbrick said there’s no way with the Government’s “health-based approach” to drug reform that “we would be enabling products that could be argued as targeted towards children”.She said there will be “nothing to glorify the consumption of cannabis” – and actually, “quite the opposite because there will be public education campaigns about the harms”.Swarbrick wouldn’t confirm cannabis-infused gummy bears would definitely be banned, but said there was consensus among the Greens, Labour and New Zealand First that protecting children and displacing the black market were top priorities.“In line with all of those things, it’s pretty evident that we will be following what other jurisdictions have done in terms of banning or ensuring that we won’t have gummy bears.”Swarbrick said there’s no way with the Government’s “health-based approach” to drug reform that “we would be enabling products that could be argued as targeted towards children”.She said there will be “nothing to glorify the consumption of cannabis” – and actually, “quite the opposite because there will be public education campaigns about the harms”.Comparing cannabis-infused lollies to alcohol-soaked lollies, Bennett said: “You’re not going to get absolutely drunk off a couple of vodka-soaked lollies, but you can get absolutely wasted on a few concentrated marijuana [edibles].”READ MORE: https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2019/05/cannabis-gummy-bears-could-be-banned-under-law-reform.htmllast_img read more

Dave Chappelle addresses LeBron James vs. Laura Ingraham, Kobe Bryant’s death in new special

first_imgNetflix dropped a surprise Dave Chappelle stand-up special Friday morning, but the 46-year-old comedian clearly had more on his mind than punchlines.Chappelle covered a number of hot-button issues in “8:46,” a title referencing the amount of time former Minneapolis police offer Derek Chauvin kneeled on George Floyd’s neck. Video of the incident has sparked nationwide outrage and protests against racial injustice and police brutality, and Chauvin was later charged with second-degree murder. MORE: How Colin Kaepernick’s protest started a movement in NFLAbout 15 minutes into his set, which was filmed in Yellow Springs, Ohio, and followed social distancing guidelines amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Chappelle ripped Fox News host Laura Ingraham and defended Lakers star LeBron James, “one of Ohio’s greatest residents ever” in Chappelle’s eyes. Ingraham recently faced criticism for saying Saints quarterback Drew Brees had the right to share his views about NFL players kneeling during the national anthem after previously telling James to “shut up and dribble” when it comes to politics.”Let me tell you something about LeBron. This n— was on the cover of Sports Illustrated when he was 17 years old and exceeded every expectation that they had for him,” Chappelle said. “This business is treacherous. This is a good guy, LeBron. He’s a family man, and this, that and the other. He didn’t let anyone down. …”This b— told my friend to ‘shut up and dribble.’ My friend is the best at something, and this b— is not the best at anything. Just a regular-ass white b— with a platform. And I use the word ‘b—’ all the time because [it’s a black thing].”Dave Chappelle with some praise for LeBron James for speaking up on racism courtesy of @NetflixIsAJoke: pic.twitter.com/RcU5iaZMoY— The Lakers Review (@TheLakersReview) June 12, 2020Near the end of the 27-minute special, Chappelle spoke about the impact of Kobe Bryant’s death. The Lakers legend died in a helicopter crash on Jan. 26, 2020, the same day Chappelle won a Grammy award for Best Comedy Album. He also noted his birthday, Aug. 24, is a combination of the two numbers Bryant wore during his NBA career.”I loved Kobe Bryant,” Chappelle said. “He died the day I won a Grammy. He died. That’s why I didn’t show up at the Grammys, because Kobe died. … I cried like a baby.” “I loved Kobe Bryant. He died the day I won a Grammy. That’s why I didn’t show up at the Grammys, because Kobe died. They had both of his f—–g jersey numbers hanging up – 8, 24. Well that’s my birthday. I cried like a baby.” – Dave Chappellevia “8:46” pic.twitter.com/6FsOtHrdaX— The Undefeated (@TheUndefeated) June 12, 2020There are a few jokes sprinkled throughout “8:46,” but it is more a stream of consciousness than a typical stand-up routine. This is the most raw version of Chappelle and, arguably, the most captivating.You can watch the full special below (explicit language).last_img read more
