R.I.P. Heath Ledger

Image Description Here
Actor Heath Ledger who starred in the Dogtown movie, (along with Griffin Collins as a stunt double) died the other day. So did actor Brad Renfro. Stay off the drugs you people young and old, the ones that are 'legal' are just as bad or worse. So much potential lost. Delete your MySpace and start a new life.

Professor Grif Predicts...

Image Description Here
Matt B: Photographer Extraordinaire.

Griffin's predictions for the year 2008:

1. Research will begin on weather or not sun screen gives you skin cancer
2. The United States of America will become U.S.A.com
3. Eddie Vedder will have a son and name him Yaddam
4. Aliens will publicly land and stoners everywhere will trip out when their first words are, "Take me to your dealer."
5. Cell phone ear peices will come attached to sunglasses
6. Jean Claude Van Damme will star in an adult film titled Re-Double Impact, where he plays himself and his twin brother and through the magic of movie making, Jean Claude Van Damme actually fucks himself.
7. Beef flavored gum will be introduced to consumers.
8. In an attempt to boost the church's religious following, the pope will ride through Marti Gras passing out rosserie beads to the ladies who show their breast.
9. Look to Seatle for a re-grunge.
10. A woman will become president with no real shock. However, the shock will hit the nation as a whole when alligations of an extra marrital affair with a female intern involving a double headed cigar arise.
