BB's Bungalow 28

BB's Bungalow - Episode 28
Christmas Downunder at the Bungalow

Happy Holidays and Seasons Greetings to everyone out there and tune in to this month's Bungalow to chill out amongst all the madness of the silly season.

This show we’ll be hearing lots of special Christmas messages from members of The Dopefiend network and The Grow Report members.  We'll also be listening to some unique holiday music, comedy and clips about Christmas and mushrooms and lots of other interesting facts which many may not even know about Christmas! 

If you would like to send in your comments or be involved in a future show then drop me a line to; find me on Skype at BlackBeauty1977; and on Twitter at BlackBeauty. 

We love receiving your emails, reviews, trip reports, voicemails, comedy and music tracks that you would like to hear on the Bungalow.

You’ve also probably noticed more of a shroomy focus in recent episodes and in fact, I would love to have more shroomy goodness on the Bungalow in 2010 so to do that, I’ll need you to send in your trip reports.  No matter how long ago they happened you’d be surprised how something you described from a past trip could help someone in the future.  Or perhaps you have yet to try psychedelics and have some questions about a future trip.  So if you have some trip stories to share with others, then write in and let us know at or send me a Private Message on The Grow Report forums.

DopecastChristmas2009 This Christmas Morning, the Dopefiend returns to send his Christmas message to the Stoner Nation, with the help of Entheo-pundit Max Freakout, Visionary Artists Podcaster, author and DopeTriber Alexander Beiner aka Ostritt, and santa's elves Squidgy Sid and G13. Settling down in the Dope Den for an early morning session, the Dopefiend starts by unveiling his current stash which features many superstars of the Cannabis world, then selecting the twelve strains of Christmas which are going to bring joy to the DopeTribe on this festive day. Turning to Squidgy Sid while filling a bag of Arjan's Haze, the Dopefiend talks about the momentous past year and the many DopeTribe highlights of the last twelve months, with honourable mentions for the Big Chill, now under threat from the corporate stewardship of Festival Republic, Ostritt's first visit to Burning Man, and how Nitrous Oxide enhanced both expeditions. Refilling the trusty Volcano Digit with some Jack Herer for the next round, the DopeTribers talk about the best ways to vape or smoke hash, and whether the iolite might be too much of a good thing for many stoners, the loss of memory associated with heavy cannabis use, and what is the optimum temperature for vaporization. Throwing a Northern Lights/New York City Diesel cross into the mix, and almost interrupted by the threat of one of Sid's notorious whiteys, the Dopefiend turns to Alexander Beiner to talk about his 2009, the success of the brand new Visionary Artists Podcast, and what constitutes Visionary Art, with some talk about James Cameron's new psychedelic masterpiece Avatar. The conversation then turns to the subject of "coming out" as a user of mind-altering substances and how it affects working life, and whether the balance of power will ever shift in favour of the freaks, with Max Freakout joining in to give his perspective from higher education, and Squidgy Sid also commenting. Following a wild interruption from G13, and a fresh bag of Grapefruit, the DopeTribe are beginning to show considerable confusion about the range of strains on display, and the Dopefiend turns to a rousing musical interlude for calming purposes. Suitably calmed, the Dopefiend fires up the iolite portable vaporizer with some Nebula while the Volcano takes on New York City Diesel, and the gathered DopeTribers talk about mushrooms and LSD and the best way to store both, before moving on to more philosophical climes with a conversation about whether consciousness exists beyond death while sampling some KC Haze Special in the Volcano, and testing out the iolite's new hash-oriented ultra-fine gauze herb chamber with some Juicy Fruit bubblehash. Piling on some G13 x Sweet Haze, the tribe discuss differing attitudes to cannabis use in different countries around the globe, and the various run-ins with law enforcement experienced by those in attendance. Next on the menu, Homegrown Fantasy Cheese almost annihilates G13, then Bubblegum and Master Kush complete the twleve strains of Christmas as the stoners talk about their plans for Christmas Day and Max Freakout's new grow operation. Email, send us a voicemail, and check out the forum.

VAP002 In the second episode of Visionary Artists Podcast we delve into the world of visionary music. Our guest is Capsula, one of the pioneers of the Psybiance genre. We discuss his creative process, the history of psychedelic trance and touch on the role of sacred frequencies in the future of music. Featuring two tracks from his new album, Sense of a Drop, this episode is packed full of beautiful tunes and musical thought. Before and after the interview we examine the difference between the Sublime and the Beautiful and discuss how aesthetic theories can be applied to visionary art. We finish with a poem and a recording of some flute music played by your host.

More information on Capsula's music can be found on his Myspace page:

Dopecast203 On the last episode of the Web's Favourite Cannabis Podcast before Christmas, the Dopefiend talks about why female stoners might be the key to securing legalization, KBud emails to tell of his first experience with weed, the Dopefiend talks about conspiracy theories, and Mike emails about his forthcoming stoner documentary. Next, the Dopefiend heads into the VaporLounge to fire up his iolite portable vaporizer with some fresh and tasty Jack Herer, to chat about the finery of the strain and the vaporizer, and to draw this week's winning entry in our competition to win a brand new iolite vaporizer. Then, after telling the Dopetribe how they can take their last chance to win their very own iolite vaporizer, we hear some homegrown music from Dopetriber Mockmoon. Back to the emails, and the Dopefiend talks about how to be a social stoner when you're a stoner lightweight, the controversial subject of cannabis tea, and we hear from grower and medical user JealousGreen about how he gets the most from his herb. In this week's Cannabis News, a new study backs up Cannabis's application as a remedy for MS spasticity, a Canadian buyer's club gets busted for turning legal weed into illegal cookies, the Canadian Senate alter anti-grower bill C-15 to target big-time gangs instead of homegrowers, A grower given a government crisis loan after his release from jail, uses it to set up another grow op, and a prisoner convinces the guards his ganja is a tomato plant! Email, send us a voicemail, and check out the forum.
