Iggy Pop is Still Alive

Michigan's finest. Has lived 60 years. All thanks to plenty of exercise, clean living and peanut butter.


Your Cat and You

We haven't seen a good record cover site in a long time. Here's one.


Right On, Brother Hippie Lefty Moonbat!

Am I the only guy in this country who's fed up with what's happening? Where the hell is our outrage? We should be screaming bloody murder. We've got a gang of clueless bozos steering our ship of state right over a cliff, we've got corporate gangsters stealing us blind, and we can't even clean up after a hurricane much less build a hybrid car. But instead of getting mad, everyone sits around and nods their heads when the politicians say, "Stay the course."

Stay the course? You've got to be kidding. This is America, not the damned Titanic. I'll give you a sound bite: Throw the bums out!

My rate of ranting on this blogthing has dropped in the past year, just because I'd be writing the above over and over, except with more profanity. But if I were Lee Iacocca, I could write a book of it and it would get published. We need more rich hippies like him.


Helter Stupid

The basic story: Negativland had to cancel a tour for mundane reasons. But they sent a press release out that claimed they had been asked not to tour by the FBI when it was found that a murdering teen was a fan of theirs.

That wasn't the case, but the media took the bait. Because we all know that music drives people to do heinous acts. Negativland then used the experience to record "Helter Stupid."

So far, there's been no word on what the killer in Virginia listened to. But you know, in trying to explain the unexplainable and insane, the media will latch on to any simplistic, stupid, theory.


That Kind of a Robot

Go here, listen to the recording of Vonnegut reading for the first time "Breakfast of Champions" to a crowd in 1970.

Or, learn how to toilet train your cat with Charles Mingus.


Vonnegut, RIP

If you have never read his stuff, go get "Breakfast of Champions" and "Slaughterhouse-Five" and read them back-to-back.

An interview with Vonnegut in 2003.


Happy Easter!


Reasoned Discussion, FOX-Style!

Maybe Bill should've thrown a chair at him.


Take It Easy




I used to like John McCain. Not that I wanted him to be President, but I thought back in early 2000 that if we were to have a Republican President, I would rather it be him an not that creepy stupid cokehead drydrunk fool we got now.

But the last tiny speck of respect for McCain is gone now. Today, to prove that it's safe to walk through a Bagdhad neighborhood, he did so, accompanied by “100 American soldiers, with three Blackhawk helicopters, and two Apache gunships overhead.” He also wore a bullet proof vest, but no helmet, because he's WALNUTS!

And then... "it didn't take the insurgents long to send their reply. Less then 30 minutes after McCain wrapped up, a barrage of half a dozen mortars peppered the boundaries of the Green Zone, where the senators held their press conference."
