Happy 420! Here at WebVee Guide, we do our best to celebrate holidays and events with diverse cultural significance. Wow, that sentence took me like 15 minutes to write. Wait, what was I saying? Oh write! I mean, right! Hey, those words sound the same but they aren't spelled the same. That seems unnecessarily confusing, doesn't it? Like, why don't we have 1 word that sounds like "right" and change the other word to something that sounds different, like "wrate". There's no word that sounds like "wrate" is there? ...OH NO! THERE IS! ALL MY PLANS ARE UNDONE! Oh well, too late to change it now.
Dave's Not Here, Man.
Wait, what were we talking about? Oh yeah. Ok, so it's 420, and to the weed smokers of the world, that's a pretty important day. So this week we're going to wrate about stoner shows. These aren't all shows about weed (though some certainly are) but rather, shows that are particularly fun to watch with a specific...um...state of mind. Tune in, toke up, and drop out, world. This one's for the potheads.

No, wait! SHOW! We Mean SHOW Reviews!
Weed is still illegal in Australia. I mean, it's still illegal most places, but it's especially disappointing to know that, in a land which is considered “the last great frontier” by most of the world, and in which nearly every animal and plant can and would gladly kill you, you can't legally light a joint and just chill out for a while
I didn't grow up in the city. I mean, I grew up in a city, but with a population of less than 150,000, it's not what people are thinking about when they talk cities. There are only a few places in my mind where it's acceptable to replace “a” with “the.” Generally this is related to city size, but also to significance in terms of the surrounding areas. New York, for example, has over 8 million people and is the cultural and financial epicenter of the entire northeast. Dallas has a bit over 1 million, but still counts as The City because there's nothing around it but desert and farms for more than a hundred miles. Chicago is The City. Los Angeles is The City (and oddly, so is San Francisco). There are others, but you get the point.
WebVee Film Reviews;
In the words of Michael Gary Scott, "I'm not superstitious...but I am a little stitious." I don't care about things like 13th floors or crossing paths with black cats (in fact, in my book, any day you cross paths with a cat is a pretty good day) but I won't go into a bathroom, turn out the lights and say “Bloody Mary” 3 times, and I won't be buying my future kids a Oija board. Nothing would happen if I did, of course but...I mean, what if it did?
I know, I know, there is no “risk” in real life because there's no such thing as ghosts. I'm almost 90% positive that you're right about that. It's that last 10% that hangs me up. Horror movies have put the fear of...well, not God, certainly, but rather the fear of unspeakable-horrors-beyond-the-ken-of-man so deeply into me that I once had serious doubts about moving into an apartment complex called “Crystal Lake.” Ok, so maybe I'm medium stitious.
Pete Winning and the Pirates: The Motion Picture
By Susan E. Clarke
I cannot explain to you how excited I was to hear that the web series Pete Winning and the Pirates was being edited into a film. Having met Mike Donis (Pete and executive producer) in LA last year, I was instantly introduced to a brand new swashbuckling adventure, which included laser fights - who wouldn’t love that?!
The two seasons of Pete Winning were amazing, brought to you in smaller taster episodes, it always left you wanting more. So the idea of having a version of it which lasted over an hour? A dream come true!
