a/k/a Tommy Chong

I just watched the documentary on Tommy Chong that was released on DVD yesterday. It’s a very delightful piece about an American icon. I learned a lot about Tommy and his life, and even learned more about Operation Pipe Dreams (although I had followed it very closely at the time). It was amazing how much of a hard-on they had for busting Tommy (and how all it did was wake up the activist in him).

Surreal moment in the film… a brief scene where prosecutor Mary Beth Buchanan is using a powerpoint to demonstrate how to use a bong.

Bonus: How “Dave’s not here” was created.
