Blackpills' "Super High," It's "Kick Ass" Empowered by Super Powered Weed.

By Laura Medina



In the opening scene of Blackpill's "Super High," the central protagonist (played by lead, Kev Adams) was en coitus with today's idea of the All-American woman who abruptly dumps and jumps off him, with him exclaiming, "I left my mother for you!" in French-inflected American English.

So begins the hero's journey.

After encountering a mysterious man in a nasty Downtown Los Angeles' alley way, the young Millennial, David (Kev Adams), took a puff on this stash of marijuana that he got from the mystery man, who warned him not to mix with cigarettes, as a way to ease him being dumped and abandoned in a strange land, as a French man and as an horny Millennial in Millennial/Gen-Z Downtown Los Angeles.

His neighbor, Chopper (DeStorm "Storm" Power, YouTube star), invited him to an underground rave party in a Public Storage garage where they encountered a hot Millennial girl with brains, Faith (Sarah McDaniel, Playboy's first non-nude centerfold).

When cops busted this illegal rave, in a panic, David unleashed his new-found super powers from the marijuana by blasting away the cops, without laying a finger.

Awed and enthralled, David's new found friends take turns taking a took off the mystery weeds, where each discover their own individual super powers.

Faith can predict the immediate future to get them out of trouble.

Chopper has telekinetic abilities to move stuff with his mind and thoughts.

David has the most variety, from his own telekinetic blasts to seeing people naked, such as Chopper, much to his chagrin.

This is where "boobs with brains" Faith exclaimed that they should be super heroes, using their new found abilities for good.  Despite, the oxymoron of busting small drug dealers as their first crime fighting effort, knowing they get their powers from puffing on "super weed."
Hence the show's title, "Super High."  It's "Kick Ass" empowered by super marijuana.

Unknown to this crime-fighting trio, an corrupt cop is hot on their trail, hunting down that super weed.


Since the producing network platform, Blackpills (both US and France) is specifically a smartphone/mobile tv streaming that streams high-production tv quality tv episodes that last all of 15 minutes per an episode, this "Kick Ass with Weed," "Super High," is not only a big deal for a new way to watch tv on your phone, it's a big deal for it's French lead actor and French producer and director and international, cross-cultural production for a mass audience.

By showcasing the common interest among the French central character and his American co-horts, "Super High" is a trend where international production companies and established European actors expanding into the highly desirable American market and audience, in ways that both cultures' mutually understand: Young Adulthood, Coming of Age, and marijuana.

"Super High"s lead character, David, isn't ashamed to say that he's part French with a French mother and an dead American dad with an American step-dad, whose French mother still calls him, asking how's her baby is doing while he fights crime empowered by super weed...or trying to pick an American chick for causal sex.

The locale is very central and important to "Super High" plot.  Recreational and medical marijuana got legalized in California, central to the characters' super powers.  Just the act of gaining, much less smoking, marijuana, is enough to land the cast and crew in jail in France.  Blackpills cannot produce or film "Super High" in France where marijuana is very much illegal, according to "Super High" producer/director, French Edouard Pluvieux. 

To lead star, hot young French comedian/actor, Kev Adams, California is the land of Hollywood and Creative Artist Agency, one of the powerhouse trio talent agencies.  Growing up in France, to Kev Adams, CAA was the place where assistants get yelled at in that tv show, "Entourage."  He and Edouard are thankful that when they landed with CAA, CAA is their biggest supporter and cheerleader in this marijuana-powered super hero comedy.

For American YouTube celebrity, DeStorm Power and Playboy centerfold, Sarah MacDaniel, this is a big leap in their careers.

Despite Trump's anti-immigrant rant of job stealing and Brexit, this French-American Millennial cast and crew is charging ahead on international collaboration and producing on tv phone streaming that anyone of any age can watch anywhere, anytime.

Blackpills is the leading light of television for the emerging 21st-century.

"Super High" will premiere September 25th on the Blackpills app.

The hottest trend, especially established Gen-X actors, the temporary, pain-less face list mask and strap, Up Yours tightening mask.

With on-setting drooping under-chin, Up Yours chin-tightening mask and strap to reinforce the hyaluronic acid, Vitamin E, and Q10 soaked paper mask soaking, moisturizing, and firming the under-chin.

This one youth treatment that Gen-Xers are taking laying down.  All you have to do is wearing it while napping for thirty minutes.

Swear, this will be the hottest product during Awards Season from January til March.

One to look out for.



Everyone, even the celebrities went crazy over this elegant but simple Baked Brie wheel wrapped in puff pastry...


1 wheel of brie (4.5 oz/125g)
1 sheet of puff pastry
1 Egg

Instructions:

Preheat an oven to 200 °C or 390°F.
Beat 1 egg in a bowl and place to the side.
On a baking tray lined with baking paper, place the puff pastry.
Place the wheel of brie in the middle.
Using a pastry brush, brush the outer edges of the pastry with the egg mix.
Now fold the pastry in and gently squeeze the pastry together in the middle.
Brush the egg mix over the top.
Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown. Remove from the oven.
Serve & Enjoy.

Cooking Tips:

You can try adding some different ingredients into the cheese/pastry. I have seen recommendations of sliced almonds, apricots, raisins and much more. All these will add a bit more of a variety of flavour to this yummy dish.
It is important to make sure your puffy pastry has almost completely thawed before using it. If you try to use it too early/whilst it is still frozen, then it may crack and you will end up with holes in the pastry.
You should try and be careful of having any area with too much puff pastry. This is likely to occur when you’re folding the pastry in. If an area is too thick with the pastry, then it is likely to not cook properly in the oven leaving you with icky undercooked pastry.

    Trend Forecasting at Annual Ultra Gold Celebrity and Media Gifting Suite Pre-Emmy Suite, Giving Celebrities What They Need.

    By Laura Medina

    Awards Shows' gifting suites are great places for trend-spotting, seeing what consumers want and need.

    Never leave home incomplete without your Eye Dope wear, like Corey Feldman.  They complete your style before you walk out that door.  Eye Dope was another product highlight as they brought wonderful models to show how a pair of sunglasses can complete that look we are all looking to do. 


    Believe it or not, above-average tall men have a difficult time finding clothes that aren't too short on them.

    Tall Order socks fits a basic need for tall guys.

    They also make great knee highs for the girls.


    It's a need, a greater need, not just an Hollywood need, custom printed labels to promote one's business...

    Dom's Distribution is Hollywood's decent secret.  You ever wondered who labels these water bottles and other nifty, cute tchotchkes, kitsch, and bric-a-bracs that you end up using as useful souvenirs?

    Dom's Distribution is the one behind those branded tchotchkes.  Having a custom-labeled bottle of water, promoting your company, organization, and event is easier done as said with
    Dom's Distribution. 

    Nominees who are nominated at the last minute, need to get camera-ready in a nanosecond.
    Gifting suites are also pampering and style lounges where nominees can get ready in a flash, say with Cosmetic Laserworks Beverly Hills, http://cosmeticlaserworks.com/

    Believe it or not but New York Fashion Week attendees can take it, jaunting from one suite to another is glamorously busy.


    Real Guarana from Brazil, Soda Bossa, is low in in sugar and sodium.  Yet, versatile enough to be a cocktail mix base...

    Tuxedo Bossa

    Are you a white Russian fan? Want something that has a rich sweet finish? Soda Bossa may have the drink for you.

    23 oz Black Vodka
    2⁄3 oz White Rum
    23 oz Triple Sec
    23 oz Banana Liqueur
    3 oz Soda Bossa

    Blue Bossa

    Feeling blue? Soda Bossa loves rum just as much as it loves vodka, give it a try for a nice mix of tart and sugar.

    1 oz. 151 Proof Rum
    1 oz. Citrus Vodka -for extra zing, serve with a lemon or citrus fruit
    1 oz. Blue Curacao
    2 oz. Sweet and Sour Mix
    1 can Soda Bossa

    To keep the gifting suite tour jumping and fueling, Pizza Crek was also there, fueling attendees with crunchy wrapped pizzas and desserts, "Pizza Crek is Hot Pockets for Adults with Better Ingredients at Friendly Prices."  http://luxurist.blogspot.com/2017/09/pizza-crek-is-hot-pockets-for-adults.html

    Gifting suites and pampering/style lounges are trends that will filter down unto the masses.
    You hear it here first.

    Eddie Vedder Ringmastered the Second Year of Dana Point's Ohana Music Festival, Where Gen-Xers Teach Their Gen-Z Kids How to Rock.

    By Laura Medina


    Now that Coachella has grown into a glamourous bacchanal for today's single and mingle, affluent "Sex and the City" set with corporate style and pampering lounges catering to their wants and needs,  the Ohana Music Festival for the Gen-Xer who ignited Coachella, in the first place, but out-grown it yet they want to rock...but with their Gen-Z kids. 


    Still Gen-Xers, these parents want to teach their offsprings how to rock right, in a much softer environment.

    With Coachella veteran, Eddie Vedder makes sure it's "Coachella on the Beach," while raising funds for San Onofre Parks Foundation and the Doheny State Beach Interpretive Association. Partying for an environmental cause.

    Coachella pretty much sets the bar for all other music festival to follow...


    Of course, Ohana Music Festival's VIP gauzy tents have the best stuff, right on the beach, next to crashing waves, https://ohanafest.frontgatetickets.com/?_ga=2.151637502.694338879.1505318904-145142749.1505318904

    Remember, the Ohana Music Festival is an environmental fundraiser.

    • Dedicated VIP entry into OHANA Dana Point
    • Exclusive VIP Laminate
    • OHANA partnership gift bag
    • VIP seated viewing platform in the VIP

    Opening night topped off with Social Distortion, with Eddie Vedder jumping in for "Ball and Chain."

    Social Distortion ended the night with their smash cover of Johnny Cash's "Wheels of Fire."

    Strike When the Iron is Hot, Rihanna Strikes It with Fenty x Puma and Fenty Beauty, on Trend.

    By Laura Medina


    The Saturday before Rihanna's Puma runway show with daring dirt bikers, Sephora already stock her new universal makeup collection, Fenty Beauty, https://www.sephora.com/fenty-beauty-rihanna

    Just in time for her Sunday runway show with Puma.  She's taking athleisure to the next level, a lifestyle brand for Millennials or healthy, trendy Gen-Xers, beyond spandex and lycra leggings and boob tube sport bras.


    Clothing companies and brands are smart hooking with bonafide celebrities, as authentic influencers, feeding into their Millennial, Gen-Zers, and even much more loyal Gen-X customers.

    If Snoop Dog's and Wiz Khalifa's runway shows for Joyrich and FourTwoFour, benefitted from their hip hop concerts, modeling the clothes, as art performances targeting their audience as customers, http://luxurist.blogspot.com/2017/06/made-la-snoop-dogg-emceed-his-sons.html then Riri x Puma's runway just built upon that concept then amped it up a notch.

    Opening with stunt dirt bikers doing flips mid-air, leaving conventional fashion designers and runway shows in the dust, making the jaded fashionistas snoozing while those same fashionistas' jaws dropped with the first flying biker.


    Proving that athleisure is a practical, realistic lifestyle, through design, Fenty x Puma proves there is more to athleisure than just a bunch of self-indulgent housewives and house husbands, Fenty x Puma used traditional weather-durable fabrics and tailoring to the bourgeoning Millennials who want to explore and ride beyond their skateboards and bikes and see the world on motorcycles or appreciate the more weather-ready but stylish moto-fashion.  Even scuba and wet suit material and tailoring made appearance in a revamped version of Bodysuit's Scuba Dress.


    Rihanna is a trend because she repeat herself with debuting her new universal, peachy-nude makeup line, Fenty Beauty at Sephora.

    Great she's thought of all her fans' wide-ranging skin tones.  But, what really is the kicker are the portable, sculptured contour brushes that can twist up and down then toss in a clutch.

    She out-beat the guys in the fashion trend department.  We're happy to live in her world.
