Amsterdam, holograms and Bruce Willis

Ruined trip (get it ... trip)

Where you planning on heading over to Amsterdam this summer to suck in the scenery and maybe some of that legal pot?  Well, think again.

"A judge on Friday upheld a government plan to ban foreign tourists from buy­ing marijuana by intro­ducing a “weed pass” avail­able only to Dutch citizens and permanent residents." -- From the AP

There goes my travel plans for this summer.  A bunch of people in the Netherlands are worried this will "hit" their tourist numbers pretty hard ... and they're right, it will! 

To protest the move, a bunch of "coffee" shops staged a "smoke-out," alongside the beautiful canals, to protest the ban. 

But really, if you can't 'procure' it here then should you really be doing it there?  Just sayin'

Speaking of being on drugs

Some dufus had the bright idea of reviving dead musicians through the art of holograms.  Earlier this month at Coachella some artist showed off his hologram of Tupac singing with Snoop Dog (video).  Neat, but when will it be too much to handle? 

When the same artists starts working on his other plans like a Michael Jackson or Whitney Houston, Jimi Hendrix and even Kurt Cobain, that's when it will go overboard. 

Yeah, that's right, a Kurt Cobain hologram.  Un-friggin-real. 

The same artists said he would love to get a hologram of Elvis to sing on stage with Justin Bieber.  Someone shoot me now!

Number 7 of why we can't ever have anything nice: Because of Bruce Willis

And now for something a little different

My girlfriend came into the office the other day after sending me a link so she could watch me giggle like a little school girl.

The list was from BuzzFeed titled "45 Reasons We Can Never Have Anything Nice."

It seriously had me rolling on the floor laughing out loud, or ROFLOL for all you tweeners. 

Some of the really good examples of why we can't have nice things includes high expectations (like sand castles) or even duck-face pictures (because of what they really turn out to be). 

Also, there is this really unfortunate example BuzzFeed grabbed from Twitter pointing out that the reason we can't have anything nice anymore is because people just can't spell anymore.  Look at this image showing people talking about how good "colon" smells.  They obviously didn't realize they meant to spell out cologne (which is the smell good stuff you put on to impress your date) but instead they spelled the body part that acts as a gateway for your poop to to outside world.  A quick lesson: if you don't know how to spell a word, you should probably look it up.  Way too funny! 

Now a Facebook joke

Saw this on a friends Facebook page and thought I should "share" it:

"An old gentleman lived alone in New Jersey . He wanted to plant his annual tomato garden, but it was very difficult work, as the ground was hard. His only son, Vincent, who used to help him, was in prison. The old man wrote a letter to his son and described his predicament:
Dear Vincent, I am feeling pretty sad because it looks like I won't be able to plant my tomato garden this year. I'm just getting too old to be digging up a garden plot. I know if you were here my troubles would be over. I know you would be happy to dig the plot for me, like in the old days. Love, Papa
A few days later he received a letter from his son.
Dear Papa, Don't dig up that garden. That's where the bodies are buried.
Love, Vinnie
At 4 a.m. the next morning, FBI agents and local police arrived and dug up the entire area without finding any bodies. They apologized to the old man and left. That same day the old man received another letter from his son.
Dear Papa, Go ahead and plant the tomatoes now. That's the best I could do under the circumstances."

That's one way to help out the old man! 

Anyways ... that's all I have for ya.  Don't forget to check out The Music Minute for some music news you may have missed this past week.  Oh, and be sure to share this with your friends, family, co-workers, and Sunday school.  It's real simple.  Just hit the Facebook, Twitter or email button.  If you don't share this, Santa Clause will not think highly of you.  Just sayin'.
