Reefer Madness

I just saw the Showtime version of the Reefer Madness musical (no links, I'm lazy and about to head home). Short response: Fricking HILARIOUS. Good music, perfect casting, excellently put together.

It is not -- as I had to point out to my brother -- pot humor. It is a musical version of the original 1936 "Reefer Madness", but in a firmly tongue-in-cheek style. The lyrics are clever, the music excellent -- good stuff all around. I've STILL got "Listen to Jesus, Jimmy." stuck in my head. (Remember, the Lord God Omnipotent HATETH the Marijuana!).

Trust me -- it's not pot humor. The TOPIC is pot, but the humor is focused solely on the inanity of the original "Reefer Madness" film and the politics and viewpoints of 1936 America.

Posting

Sorry it's been so slow. Blogger has been giving me nothing but grief. Hopefully posting will resume soon, as I once again have access to blogger.
