    Kalea McNeill Talks Wake N Baking and Stand-Up Comedy

    Kalea McNeill Talks Wake N Baking and Stand-Up Comedy

    On the latest episode of "Queens of the Stoned Age," MERRY JANE managing editor Mira Gonzalez sits down with comedian Kalea McNeill to discuss acting on the romantic musical comedy-drama TV show Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, being the class clown, and almost unintentionally falling into stand-up comedy 7 years ago.

    Over a Swisher stuffed with the finest bud our good friends the Green Angels (@greenangels.buzzz) have to offer, Mira and Kalea chop it up about jelly bean-shaped burgers in Fairfield CA, the important role weed plays in her writing process, and working at an infomercial production company right out of college.

    We closed out the show with a friendly round of “Puff or Pass,” a segment in which we gauged Kalea’s opinions on topics such as cooking with weed, Billy Porter’s tuxedo gown, Green Book winning best picture at the Oscars, and more.

    To support Kalea, check out the short film Boihood, watch season 4 of “Crazy Ex Girlfriend” on the CW, and catch her on MERRY JANE’s “About That Time,” with Noah Rubin every Tuesday or Thursday on Facebook Live. Her new comedy special “Laugh After Dark” will also drop on Amazon Prime Video in a month!

    “Queens of the Stoned Age” will be live at SXSW in Austin, Texas, with Chairman of the Board of the Texas Cannabis Industry Association Elizabeth Nichols as a special guest. Bu sure to come check it out if you’re in town!

    Until then, don’t be shy: kick back, relax, and get woke with the freshest ep of "Queens of the Stoned Age" — the days of marijuana mansplaining are over.

    Potty Mouth Talk Reductive Bikini Kill Comparisons and Snafu

    Potty Mouth Talk Reductive Bikini Kill Comparisons and Snafu

    Despite not being a punk band in the least, music critics are constantly comparing Potty Mouth to iconic female bands such as Bikini Kill and Riot Girls. In short, situation normal: all f****d up. However, despite being fans of those bands, Potty Mouth find the comparisons diminutive and are on a mission to establish themselves as female rock musicians on their own terms.

    On the latest episode of "Queens of the Stoned Age," MERRY JANE’s Mira Gonzalez sits down with Abby Weems, Ally Einbinder, and Victoria Mandanas of Potty Mouth to discuss their journey from living and going to school in Massachusetts to living in LA and releasing their second album next month.

    Over a blunt of Blue Dream provided by our good friends the Green Angels(@greenangels.buzzz), Abby, Ally, and Victoria chimed in on whether weed helps them break out of their normal song writing groove (“Drip Dry” was uncharacteristically written by Abby whilst high), how hard it is to make it financially as an artist, and having complete creative control over their next release.

    Because Abby, Ally, and Victoria are all from Massachusetts, a state that happens to have some seriously bonkers laws still on the books, we devised a game in which we asked them to guess which laws were real and which were from a list of both actual laws and fictitious ones. Is it illegal to eat peanuts in church? Can milk only be consumed in a copper mug? You’ll have to find out for yourself...

    Potty Mouth’s new album Snafu drops on 3/1, and they will also be performing at their album release party at the Factory in Los Angeles. Until then, check out their “Starry Eyes” music video and preorder the album!

    So don’t be shy: kick back, relax, and get woke with the freshest ep of "Queens of the Stoned Age" — the days of marijuana mansplaining are over.

    Scheana Shay Talks Unscripted Reality TV and Freezing Her Eggs

    Most servers don’t have a million Instagram followers, right? Or act in a Broadway show, right?! Well, let’s just say that Scheana Shay isn’t your average server.

    On the latest episode of "Queens of the Stoned Age," MERRY JANE managing editor Mira Gonzalez sits down with Scheana to learn more about her transition from serving to acting on a reality TV show and becoming a celebrity.

    Over a joint of “Mimosa” provided by our good friends the Green Angels (@greenangels.buzzz), Scheana and Mira discuss their mutual love for “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” having to give up THC and CBD for 50 days in order to freeze her eggs, and how (mistakenly) getting sued by her neighbors for smoking weed in the building led to meeting Tommy Chong.

    It was then time for a round of the “Puff Pass” segment, but you’ll have to watch to find out what Scheana thinks of microblading, Taco Bell, Katy Perry’s blackface shoes, and plenty more.

    The next “Vanderpump Rules” episode airs next Monday, but until then be sure to check out Shay’s just-released first single “Better Without You” (the full EP drops in May) and her “Scheananigans” podcast on PodcastOne.

    Right now, however, don’t be shy: kick back, relax, and get woke with the freshest ep of "Queens of the Stoned Age" — the days of marijuana mansplaining are over.
