Noel Gallagher Hates Books, Wants Amazon Alexa To Start Delivering Weed

Apps, authors and gadgets are all overrated according to Noel Gallagher, who recently sat down with Pitchfork for the latest edition of 'Over/Under.'  The former Oasis songwriter said he'll be interested in virtual assistants like Amazon Alexa when they can pick up weed for him. 

"When they can go and get drugs for you, then we're moving forward as a society. 'Alexa, go score us some weed,'" Gallagher said. "All gadgets are fucking overrated. They built the pyramids without electricity. There's no app for that."

So maybe he was the one who ordered 65 pounds of marijuana from Amazon recently.

Gallagher also shared some harsh words about books.

"What really fucking annoys me about books is when you go to a bookshop, and you see a book that'll be titled 'The Happiness of the Homosexual Squirrel.' And I'll say, 'What's that book about?' And they'll say, 'Oh, it's about drug addicts.' Well then what the fucking hell is that title then? Or 'How to Catch a Hippo.' What's that about? 'Oh, it's about one woman's erotic journey across Eastern Europe.'"

And don't him started about authors.

"People who write books are fucking idiots," Gallagher ranted. "They think they're above everybody else. Honestly, you think I'm arrogant? I've met a few authors in my time, and I'm just like, 'Really? You wrote a fucking book called 'The Happiness of the Giraffe.'"

In the old days, weed "branding" was defined by plastic baggies, pot leaf imagery, tie-dye, and in some cases, imagery of conventionally hot girls in bikinis or booty shorts. The messages back then revolved around weed as a stereotypically male stoner pastime, whilst alienating women, or those who didn't appreciate the strip club aesthetic in connection to their medicinal or recreational products. But in recent years, and especially in legal states, this has all begun to change.
