It’s been a beyond-crazy week for Justin Timberlake. Just mere days away from the official release of The 20/20 Experience (March 19!), Justin’s been celebrating “Justin Timberweek” every single night this week on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” (we’re tired just thinking about it), complete with live performances of “Mirrors,” “Pusher Love Girl,” and the classic “SexyBack” (with a barbershop quartet!).
Now Justin’s debuted another new track from The 20/20 Experience (maybe you already read about it in our GIF album review?), “Strawberry Bubblegum.”
Decked out in varsity baseball-style jackets, Justin and his backup singers shook and finger-snapped their way through the R&B-tinged make-out anthem “Strawberry Bubblegum.” Then, building upon the performance’s sports theme, some additional backup dancers joined Justin onstage in full baseball uniform regalia. Why all the baseball hats and striped pants?? We can’t be too sure… Could it have something to do with baseball players and their penchant for chewing gum? If that’s the case, shouldn’t the song actually be called “Chewing Tobacco”? Er, never mind — all that matters is Justin can shimmy around the stage singing “My lips are strawberry strawberry bubblegum” ALL he wants — whether or not the costumes make sense is besides the point. Check it out below! And for goodness sake, stream The 20/20 Experience already!

‘Cheers’ had it right — people love going to places where they know your name — a community of friends in all walks of life embracing one another. Washington being a pro marijuana state with legalized cannabis, the “Ever-Green” state has fully embraced the “community” in medical marijuana community, with some cultivating to physically build one. On one hand we have medical marijuana card holding patients that like to get their pot and run, debating on where to smoke weed; and others that mash-up their love of marijuana with mingling and shopping — Mary Jane meets the farmers market.
This idea isn’t just an idea in a haze…Washington Farmer’s Market in Olympia provides a stoner’s haven for market fare. Open to the public and not being exclusive, the 420 friendly patients and vendors welcome all passerby’s with a smile and open arms; even if you’re the novice stoner still learning how to smoke from a bong.
The marijuana farmer’s market embodies why marijuana laws need to be re-addressed. The market is all about weed; having fun, enjoying the marijuana treats, while learning about all the medical benefits of pot and the exponential medical possibilities of THC and cannibinoids. With about 20 tables, vendors offer anything for the medical marijuana patient to salivate over from marijuana flowers, pot brownies to pot seeds and dank concentrates. Competition helps to have high quality pot products for a low cost, with free weed to sample for patients that donate. With energetic sativas for the day stoner and sedative indicas for the night pot smoker.
With many people with a ‘wake and bake,’ on the go mentality, Sonshine Organics provides relief. This medical marijuana collective runs on the same high grounds as the Washington Farmer’s Market and has a unique feature – a drive-thru. Sonshines own Sarena Haskins says, “It’s perfect for the busy mom on the go, who don’t want to leave her children in the car.”
A staple for the growing marijuana niche market is their food, like any other well-groomed farmer’s market. The BBQ pork slider, infused with cannabutter, from Chef Bilbus Yeoldshire is a must have for all patients. A bang for your buck being less than $5. For stoners with a sweet-tooth, there is a bevy of potent medicated weed treats which include: hash brownies, dark chocolate chip pot cookies and cannabis peanut butter cups.
With a serene and energetic atmosphere for all ages to enjoy; the Washington Farmer’s Market, hopefully, is the start of an ongoing influx of Pot Farmers Markets around the country so more medical marijuana patients can take pleasure in — A safe and nurturing environment for the medical marijuana community. Vendors and patients alike entertaining, educating one another for the greater of medical cannabis.
Identical to the typically, socially-accepted local farmers market minus the cannabis – there’s never a bland moment. With live music, smoking lounges, entertainers at every corner. Hopefully one day there will be a “C” answer to: “Want to go to the farmer’s market?”
C.) Which one? Pot or not?
Don’t shy away when it takes hold of what you think is your “better judgment”. Curiosity is SO very healthy. It can help you find the things you love and will cherish forever more. While on the flip side, curiosity can help you realize those things you thought were “just right” for you, are so far from what you could ever begin to want to handle.
We live life in interesting times now. Fast times, truly fast times. It’s ALL “out there”. Tits and ass. Beefs and brawls.
With that said, where is the tenderness? Where is the intended love behind our public actions?
We are all walking around bumping into each other, acting. When it’s all hanging out and when you’re playing it cool, because that’s what we do now…do you then find happiness, have you?
We can’t continue to numb ourselves. Connection is what makes life beautiful.
Connect with yourself, realize who you are. Experiment with others, be sure it’s done out of love and include a little tenderness.
With respect to sex, whether you like it dirty, soft, with many or with one person, once or many times- please each other or yourself to the fullest extent necessary. Love yourself, love each other with integrity.
Don’t be afraid to let curiosity guide you into those circumstances that help you discover yourself. All while fulfilling the basic rule of mutual respect for life and needs.
Be kinky, be real, be open, be available- mentally – be present- or just be. Above all be curios…it kills that cat in a good way sometimes. ;-}
