Coffee and Weed – D.C. Go-Go Remix by Rob Cantrell feat. Lionize. The timing for this video is perfect. Washington DC, the city where comedian Rob Cantrell was born and a place near and dear to his heart has just Legalized Cannabis. “Wow, It seems weird saying it. It is a bit tricky because the DC mayor and a couple senators are debating the legal ramifications of full on legalization of Cannabis in the city.” says Cantrell. “It is a ‘Hot Button’ topic right now and this video was super fun to shoot in my home town given everything that is happening right now.” The song is re-mixed with new lyrics and arranged in a local Go-Go musical form with the help of DC area band LIONIZE. The DC Go-Go sound was born in the District and is an amazing original musical genre that is an off shoot of Funk, with many similarities to Hip-Hop.

As you probably heard, today Jon Stewart announced that he’s stepping down as host of The Daily Show after an incredibly impressive 16 year run on the show. Stewart broke the news at the end of the show which is usually reserved for the moment of zen, rather Stewart spoke from the heart, stating it’s time for someone else to run the show, adding, “This show doesn’t deserve an even slightly restless host… and neither do you.” Signing off by stating, “it’s been an absolute pleasure.” Read More
