So have you heard of the Dave’s Not Here bit by Cheech and Chong? I suspect you have, but I am always checking. I grew up in that stoner genre of the 70’s. Now that the statute of limitations has run out, I can admit to smoking my fair share. Fortunately it quit working for me years ago and I gave it up. But I still LOVE Cheech and Chong!
So when I tell somebody my name is Dave, I often times get the response: “Dave’s not here, maaan!” Just a sign of the times and of the crowd that I call my peeps. So when it came time to name my travel blog, it just seemed natural to name it this. I relate, I identify, and I cherish all the laughter I had watching Cheech and Chong movies. It was, after all, a great time in my life.
I did a little homework. I must admit that I did not know the origins of this skit, so I consulted the Wiki on this. It turns out it was a one and a half minute skit on their debut album in 1971. Imagine that, it was over 40 years ago! Woooo! So I found a few links to that bit and put one below. Enjoy!
