What made this empire of origin so special was partly the look of its walls and elevator, all covered in aluminum foil by photographer Billy Name, the same Factory person who scavenged the famous ratty red couch where crashers crashed and films like Blow Job were made.
When you can see all the awe-inducing planets and creatures the galaxy can offer, with your love interest and reader stand-in Dawn Greenwood at your side, why not hang a cosmic ten?
But most of all … the light! Of all pothead paeans, Smiley Face most closely approximates a virtual-reality stoner experience. Anna Faris gives a laconic performance of epic proportions as Jane, an actress who inadvertently ingests pot cupcakes and sets off on proverbial misadventures.
With a capital. Does this really need justification? Fine: the Gorn. Mind-melding , alien gender politics and Harry Mudd. Reilly as Dale — are middle-aged losers in the throes of arrested development who are forced to come together because of a marriage. Though they start off as enemies, they establish a deep understanding through opera, activities , and a little venture called Prestige Worldwide.
This minimalist FXX cartoon is exactly what it says on the tin: It follows the delightfully wacky adventures of four anthropomorphic ducks, all of whom seem pretty stoned.
Reilly pops up to voice a very John C. Reilly—esque cop who is also a duck, natch. Just like Sisyphus, you know? Mastermind Gustav Ejstes and his Scandinavian bros throw a bunch of entrancing elements in the air — fuzzy guitar, glistening strings, jazzy drumming, cascading melody — and let them land where they may. This is a compliment, fair Swedes.
Have you seen the most beautiful video on YouTube? Possibly the most divisive comedy duo since the Smothers Brothers got kicked off of CBS, the multifaceted, aggressive, and completely whacked-out stylings of Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim have left an indelible mark on stoner comedy the same way Mr. Show did a decade previous.
Their range is wide — the demented cable-access nightmare Check It Out! With Dr. The genius of L. Remember the endless sagas you would create with all your toys as a kid? While the book could have ended up as just another craven corporate cross-over, its got a hyperactive spirit rarely present in mainstream American comics noawadays.
And they certainly set the tone for a heightened sensory experience. But what ensues is a story of great empathy for a middle-class Texan clan in post—World War II America, one pieced together the way real memories feel and operate: like patchworks of whispers, screams, soft light, and dark retreat that meet somewhere in time with our present selves. Even 25 years after its premiere, Twin Peaks is still one of the strangest and most unique shows to ever air on television.
And network TV, at that! Plenty of other artists had implicated everyday citizens in tales of murder and deceit, but few had bothered to acknowledge all the freaks and weirdos that live there, too.
No drug is going to make it make any more sense could anything? And who can blame them? Warren Oates. The cumulative effect is akin to Slacker meets Cannonball Run along Route 66, on cruise control. Waking Life is the college roommate who had watched Loose Change on a bender and thought it made some good points even if its general premise was unfeasible and its politics were outmoded. If weed is indeed a gateway drug, Waking Life is something like a gateway film. Please use in moderation.
It took a lot of restraint not to make a Baking Life joke here, by the way. Cotton mouth? From high to lowbrow, the British improv game-show was tethered to reality, barely, by the dry wit of host Clive Anderson. He gave Bernie the credit to help him get his first publishing royalties.
If you think you may have a copy lying around somewhere, now would be the time to start digging. Though met with critical acclaim, neither the single or the LP sold particularly well at first. Did you think classical music would be left off of this list? Record companies would often enlist the help of relatively unknown artists to provide the album art for their classical and jazz releases. This particular album cover was drawn by a certain starving artist that was destined for stardom.
His name? Andy Warhol. There are only seven known copies of this record in existence. Half soundtrack, half dialogue recording, this record was scrapped when Herman Wouk, writer of the novel on which the critically-acclaimed film was based, threatened to never allow the studio to use his work ever again if they released the album. Wouk was furious at what he saw as blatant theft of his intellectual property, since the B-side of the record was a recording of the climactic courtroom scene, lifted verbatim from his novel.
Columbia agreed to halt the release of the album and destroy all copies. A few employees filched some copies before they were demolished — there are rumored to be close to a dozen that survived. There were 25, copies of this single pressed.
In a story that since become punk legend, the Sex Pistols terrorized their label so badly that they were dropped six days after signing the record contract in a publicized ceremony in front of Buckingham Palace. The very limited Australian edition on translucent vinyl is said to only have 50 of its kind — though only a small handful have surfaced over the years. The song references the assassination of Martin Luther King and the civil rights movement, but Bono says he could have better fleshed out the lyrics.
According to him, the Edge and producer Brian Eno convinced him that keeping the lyrics vague would allow the song to resonate deeper with non-English speakers. Rumor has it that Olivia Newton-John hated the way she looked in the picture printed on the front of the disc so much that she had the record company stop the pressing.
Between 20 and 30 records survived. Jazz fans rejoice! There were between and 1, copies of this record printed in , but a small variation in printing makes one particular version especially valuable. The story goes that famed jazz record label Blue Note ran out of labels when printing the record.
In theory, the other version should be worth even more. According to blues legend, Johnson met with the devil at the crossroads between Highway 1 and 8 in Mississippi.
There, Johnson traded his soul for the ability to master the guitar. There were only 15 copies of this record pressed, and the cover of each was hand-painted by Dave Buick, founder of Italy records. The copies were made for a Detroit record release show for the band in , as the fledgling band was on the incline, destined for stardom.
Hopefully, you kept it safe. The record label that handled the release, Tiger Lily, was a tax scam operated by the mob. The scam worked like this — a large portion of records would be pressed and later written off as unsold. A few of these records made it into the right hands and achieved cult status. The pressing of the record that is particularly valuable, however, is one that features a stencil rendition of the front jacket painted by none other than notoriously elusive street-artist Banksy.
There were only of these limited edition hand-spray painted versions made, with several different color variants. The record label decided to be cautious in the wake of the controversy and political turmoil and ordered the records destroyed.
You may remember this record from an episode of Pawn Stars. The price was deemed too steep for the vinyl, which was not in the best shape. One lucky Canadian record collector picked up a copy sans the Warhol artwork-adorned sleeve for 75 cents at a flea market, but this was no ordinary re-pressing. The acetate record ended up being a test pressing that featured early versions of many of the songs — there are only two in existence, and one belongs to former Velvet Underground drummer Moe Tucker.
