Band Review- Twisting Fate

Twisting Fate is a Heavy Rock, Metal Thrash style band local to Seattle Washington. Its band members: Mike Stevens on Vocals, Chris Sleight on Guitar, Scott Doerflinger on Guitar, Chode on Drums, Evan Stegman on Bass.

I personally have seen Twisting Fate several times live, as well as had the privilege of being at a few practice sessions. I have no doubt Twisting Fate will go far and be successful as a band.

The band has all original songs as well as sings a few cover songs and ii’s members are always having fun while playing. I know for a fact that the vocalist Mike Stevens is a reader of my blog and we will have a unique perspective as well as a chance to hear from him as well. Keep reading the comments and keep up with this page to keep up to date on upcomming shows and events.

My Organic Garden

Just wanted to document my personal experiences starting an organic garden. I know it’s not much to look at now, but hopefully with some help I will be able to have some home-grown non GMO Organic veggies this summer.

I will take lots of photos of all the stages of building and maintaining the garden. I will also give tips and advice as situations arise.

Featured Pipe Store-Wunderland Pipes & Gifts

I want to start off by saying hands down, Wunderland is the best smoke accessory shop in all the Seattle area. They only buy from local glass artists and absolutely do not sell any tobacco products. I don’t think there is any other shop quite like Wunderland. I have never had anything but awesome customer service and always leave happy knowing I made quality investments.

The selection of what they offer is very large and is all locally made. Wunderland was formerly called Odyssey of Burien, but is still the same owners and staff since becoming Wunderland. Odyssey was a staple in Burien since the 1970’s.

The only thing I can really say is you must stop in and find what treasures await. I will be following up with the owners of Wunderland for an in depth interview and possibly a discount code.  http://www.smokeshopseattle.com/

Happy 420 Stoners!

The day of April 20th has been known as a Stoners Holiday for quite some time. I can remember being in middle and High school and skipping classes to go smoke weed at the park with friends. Now that I’m an adult, the celebrations have only intensified and become more of a festivle of weed smoking than anything else. As the culture of marijuana and cannabis continue to evolve, the tolerance to stoners has become greater and more people are becoming accepting of the Weed smokers way of life.

I can remember when the only kind of hash you could buy was press hash and it wasn’t always good and it was always expensive. Now days, I can walk into a recreational store and purchase several different kinds of hash from several unique strains of really good weed.

So today I plan on venturing out into the Recreational shops to see what kinds of deals are available as well as I plan on reviewing as many different strains as possible today! I will be posting a link to my YouTube account so you can feel as if you’re in the clouds with me reviewing all the tasty treats!

Stop the prescription assault!

I very recently had a change in my pain medication to better help manage my pain. I was switched from my normal vicodin to dilaudid. I have been hesitant on taking anything stronger for a while now, but reluctantly agreed to try the dilaudid for a month. The first few days were ok, no noticeable side affects. Then the problems started. I was not breathing normally and was feeling very weak.

I made an appointment same day and went back to my Dr office. After a long day of being upset and concerned about breathing normal again, I finally was feeling better after undergoing some care at the Drs.

My question now is why would they want to put me on a medication that causes severe breathing problems, when I have obstructive sleep apnea? I’m not putting any names or even what office it was at, but can you not kill me please! And EPIC FAIL on my pharmacist for not seeing the potential for problems.

I will be posting a lot more and catching up on things that this whole ordeal has put into disarray.

Strain Review- Dutch Treat

So this week I managed to pick up a little bit of some really good Dutch Treat from The Evergreen Market. I must say I was very pleased with this purchase. The High was awesome, and the CBD content was more than efficient to manage my pain. I will say that this week has been a hard week as far as pain goes.

After talking with some other fans of the Dutch Treat, we decided to give this strain a 4.5 out of 5 review. This review is one of the highest reviews I have given to date. The only way I feel the crop could have been better is if it was denser buds. I found the flavor to be amazing, and the euphoric high was incredible. I was super relaxed and found myself wanting to take an eye nap.

    Strain Review- Super Silver Haze by Cannabis Club.

    I’m going to start by saying WOW! This strain is absolutely amazing. I was incredibly impressed with how high I was, as well as how I could manage the throbbing pain in  my back. I found it to have a sweet, citrus taste and was very dense. The lineage comes from crossing Skunk #1, Haze, and Northern Lights. Super Silver Haze is considered a sativa, but I think its more Hybrid than Sativa. I give a 4.5 out of 5 stars. I would definitely recommend it for Cancer patients for its nausea relieving effects as well as pain relief.

      WTF is a DAB?

      The very first time I even heard the term Dab, I was confused and curious at the same time. I was in the dispensary called The Oasis in the Top Hat neighborhood of South Seattle. I had just gotten my medical marijuana authorization and was excited to try some new strains out. When I walked in, the entire place smelled absolutely delicious. After carefully checking out all the shelves, I came to a display case with the word Concentrates in huge lettering. I asked the staff, who referred to himself as a “Budtender” whats up with the concentrates? He was happy to answer my questions and to this day is still one of the most knowledgeable Budtenders I have come across.

      After I asked what I’m sure was several dumb questions, the Budtender then asked if I wanted to try a sample! I gladly accepted the offer and followed him into the Dab Bar section of the store. Now at the time, I don’t think there were any laws preventing the sampling on site, but I was new and trusted my Budtender to not do me wrong. I also figured why would he risk his job over a sample? So he proceeds to use a butane torch to heat a metal nail on a special water bong for smoking wax, called a dab rig.

      Now I’m intimidated! I’ve never had a dab hit before, and I’m just about to back out, when he noticed and offered to take a hit to show me how its done. Before I can say sure, he’s already done taking his toke. No biggie right! He reloads his dab tool with another smaller piece than the one he just took and says “Are you up or not?” I agree and proceed to take my very first dab!

      I will say the only thing I don’t like about taking a dab is it is very strong on the burning of the throat and lungs. Besides that, it’s such a wonderful high. For me it’s like smoking several bowls of either the Truth or the 3 Kings strains. I also enjoy smoking joints and blunts, and a dab hit of a good wax hash is better than smoking several joints and blunts.
