With quotes like "With 'Closer to the Sun', Slightly Stoopid has created a soundtrack to compliment their quest for the most crucial mix, and prove that hard work, perseverance and staying true to their roots is their path to creating genre-bending music with integrity" the site reads a bit like a fanzine. Definitely doesn't read like an encyclopedia. Suggest light editing.--Alex 21:43, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

Copyright violation[edit]

Back in 2005 this edit was introduced. It obviously is copy and pasted from another site. While over the past 2 years minor changes have been made, the core paragraphs remain and it still contains plagiarism and reads like a press release. A sourced version is needed (that isnt copy and pasted) to replace this section. The section resembles almost verbatim the band bio on Surfdog's website. Ocatecir Talk 08:31, 18 May 2007 (UTC)

Slightly Not Stoned Enough to Eat Breakfast Yet Stoopid[edit]


Slightly Stoopid’s New Album, Released July 22, 2008

Slightly Stoopid’s new album entitled “Slightly Not Stoned Enough to Eat Breakfast Yet Stoopid” was released July 2008. On this album, their cover art is bacon and eggs and is truly the balanced breakfast of Slightly Stoopidism. Their range of musical style stretches across the genres of reggae, punk rock, jazz, hip-hop and bluesy guitar part riffs. Slightly Stoopid is best known for their by their use of poignant musical flare to create a fusion of sounds within one song. The previous June’s release of “Chronchitis” was a landmark for the band, with its ultra polished sound, a leap from their previous albums into stardom. It’s hard to calculate how “Slightly Not Stoned Enough to Eat Breakfast Yet Stoopid” compares with their previously released CDs. It contains seven previously released EP’s, including the masterful UB40 cover “Still Be You,” which appeared in limited supply as a free gift with the band’s fifth album, “Closer to the Sun.” Slightly Stoopid albums often feature other artists, among the most popular of these being G-Love, I-Man, and Toko Tasi. I-Man returns to this album, in the song “I-Metal.” Previously, he rapped on the album “Everything You Need” in the song “World Goes Round.” He adds a great touch to this metal song, which proves that even Stoopid can create a killer metal song. Also voices may appear familiar on “Supernatural,” the famous band who does the theme song to “Cops” may come to mind. The new Stoopid album has alternative versions of songs which have appeared elsewhere as well. “Shoobe” with Toko Tasi appears on the self-titled Toko Tasi album released in 2007 under the title “Foolish Win” and is one second shorter than the new Slightly Stoopid version. Also, “Foolish Win” appears finished on the Slightly Stoopid album, with a more prominent drum line and guitar riffs, to give off a more powerful feel to the fan already familiar with the song. Though they changed the name, and the difference between the two versions is nearly indistinguishable, I find “Shoobe” is more pleasing to the ear. In addition, the Slightly Stoopid track “Sinsemilla” also appears as a more finished version than on the band’s “Acoustic Roots” album. “Tom and Jerry” is a song that finally gives name to a previously released lyric-free, flamenco tune. This song appeared on the album “Closer to the Sun” as the hidden track after “Open Road.” Stoopid’s “Tom and Jerry” holds the last place on this CD and runs 1 minute and 40 seconds long, the total track time is 6:46 though, and the acoustic version of “Closer to the Sun” plays at the end. Within such a great album there are few, never previously released songs. Slightly Stoopid is forever developing their sound, so that the band is growing in talent, rather than just changing style. The album doesn’t feel as uniform as their previous album “Chronchitis,” as most of those 2007 released songs have heavy jazz influence with jam-band-like riffs, and recurrent Slightly Stoopid-esque beats. No, “Slightly Not Stoned Enough to Eat Breakfast Yet Stoopid” plays like a greatest hits album. The track “Digital” appears on both this new album and the previous album, “Chronchitis,” however the previously released “Digital” is the finished version of the song, while the new album sports an original sounding version of the song. Slightly Stoopid allow themselves the privilege to promote different versions of their music, unashamed to work on already “finished” songs and pass on remade versions to their Stoopid fans with pride. In addition, I feel it relevant to mention that on their DVD that one band member mentioned the title of this new CD as one he’d have preferred for “Closer to The Sun” – Looks like you got your way dude, rock on and smoke on.—Preceding unsigned comment added by Beatnikfly (talkcontribs) 2009-11-01T13:58:09

Not done: please be more specific about what needs to be changed. What is to be replaced? The whole article with this text? Can you change it so that it reads less like an essay and wikify the content? Also, I don't see any references. Do you have any?—C45207 | Talk 20:29, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

Looking for Editors[edit]

Because Stoopid's page is locked and requires established Wikipedia editors, they are looking for someone to update their wiki page for them. Not looking to manipulate the page, just bring up to date. They have a lot going on and want to make sure that visitors to their Wikipedia page are well informed. Such notable events include the nationwide Blazed & Confused Tour with Snoop Dogg, Stephen Marley, and a performance last week on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Connection with Marijuana[edit]

is nothing going to be added to this group's obvious connection with marijuana and their portrayal or their support for it, especially in CA where medical marijuana issues are huge?
