“The Squad is controlled opposition and an extension of the Democratic Party establishment. The greatest country on earth has millions without healthcare.

The greatest country on earth has millions without a home. The greatest country on earth has half the population in or near poverty.

American exceptionalism is a lie, unless you’re rich that is. The cost of the US’s War on Terror alone has been:

Tens of millions displaced. Millions killed. Trillions of US tax dollars wasted.

But please do tell me about how scared of Russia and China you are. Hakeem Jeffries is a neoliberal.

Kevin McCarthy is a neoliberal.

Don’t be fooled by so-called “gridlock” in Congress. Both corporate parties walk in lock-step together when it comes to neoliberalism and war. Cuba helped South Africa defeat apartheid.

“As the United States and its Western allies go around sanctioning and stealing other countries money and assets do they ever think that just maybe the rest of the world will stop relying on the dollar and look to other currencies that are safer? Stop worrying about the citizens in countries like China, Russia and North Korea being victims of their Gov’ts propaganda, when the masters of brainwashing a society are right here in America. Remember when they had you all losing your minds over the Kurds and the women in Afghanistan and then it all went away when it was no longer useful to our Gov’t

Same thing is gonna happen when they’re done using Ukraine and they move us on to their next adventure to care about. Our Gov’t is gonna give Ukraine just enough weapons to keep this war going until they have no country or soldiers left and then they will abandon them like they do everybody else. So is everybody gonna keep pretending that the Pentagon didn’t “Lose” trillions of dollars again?” (-Black In The Empire)

BILLY IDOL GOT HIS STAR ON THE HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME

You know, he’s one of my all time heroes, favorite singers, a lightning bolt of personal inspiration and my teenage role model, so yeah, I’m into it. I love him, always have, always will. I woulda been there if I could. I like all his stuff. From Generation X to the Roadside and Cage ep’s. I love Derwood, and I love Steve Stevens, too. Rocknroll motherfuckers, about the best of the best! Rollins did a surprisingly great job talking about Idol’s legacy and especially emphasizing the crucial contributions of Generation X who never get enough credit.. “Decade after decade, he remains himself”. WELL SAID, Henry….Difference between Billy and almost everybody else is he STILL writes FANTASTIC songs. I really love him with all my heart, like somebody I know. Hell I think I know him better than the people from my past who changed until they were nigh unrecognizable. Billy has integrity, fire, sincerity, soulpower, unprecedented swagger and coolness, the whole thing, really. There are not a lotta days that go by in my lifetime when I aint listening to Idol. Thank you, Billy for all those life affirming, uplifting rocknroll anthems. I know it’s harder than you make it look cause I’ve spent about forty years trying to do my own version. Long Live Billy Idol! Bless him! return To Splendor! I’m with you, Billy!

“Western “liberal democracies” are just totalitarian regimes with more money and better narrative management. The US-centralized empire controls the global south with bombs, bullets and blockades and controls the rest of us with mass-scale psychological manipulation.

Sure it’s more pleasant to be sitting where we are rather than at the barrel of the gun, but don’t confuse pleasantness with freedom. It’s nice that here they let you criticize your government and buy whatever you can afford at the store. It would be pleasant to live in a vat with your brain plugged into a virtual world of endless pleasure, too, but it wouldn’t be freedom. Psychological tyranny is still tyranny.

You’ll never get change as long as propagandists are able to convince a critical mass of people not to push for change. You’ll never stop depraved agendas as long as propagandists can manipulate a critical mass of people into consenting to those agendas. Propaganda is enemy #1.

Every other solution people talk about is secondary to the problem of the empire being able to psychologically manipulate a critical majority of people. Voting strategies, organizing, activism, protests, none of these things will get off the ground as long as public perception is controlled.

The good news is that public trust in the mass media is at an all-time low while our ability to share unauthorized ideas and information with each other is at an all-time high. The bad news is it still hasn’t been enough, and online censorship is increasingly suppressing dissent.” (-Caitlin Johnstone)

Jimmy Dore on Twitter: “And there it is. #ForceTheVote was always just Politics 101. The #FraudSquad had the very same leverage as the right wingers do now, but the squad chose NOT to demand anything for their vote. They succeeded in electing an enemy of the left while getting nothing. #UniParty” / Twitter

ONE OF THOSE FUCKIN’ DAYS

where I got nowhere to go but my spirit gets seized by impulsive desire and the usual restlessness, that urgent throbbing pulse of life that put me on so many Grayhounds as a kid with just my Walkman and denim jacket and half crushed pack of Marlboro reds. “Pack It Up” by the Pretenders has been a big song of mine since I was about ten probably. Is that about forty years or some shit? Puttin’ some lyrics down on paper but I’ve said it all before. I wish my friend Dave Andra was still alive, he worked for decades at a hippie record store then when it was sold and became a guitar shop, they new owners hired him on even though he was not a guitarist, he was such a beloved figure in the destination record store tristate area, and an absolute expert on the blues and garage punk and old school scuzzy psychedelia, they just righteously kept him on, though I frequently badgered our mutual former co worker who’d opened his own sortof spinoff record store in the nu metal era, to hire him and pay him a proper wage, that never happened and he ought to regret that now. So I’d call him at the record store turned guitar shop on mornings like this one, and we’d chat about whatever fanciful band plans I was masterminding in my crazy head, or girlfriend problems that come from being perpetually poor and dedicated to your single minded punknroll records making dream, or he’d tell me about whatever ZZ Top were doing, and how I needed to listen to more Isaac Hayes and 13th Floor Elevators and the English version of “Aftermath”. He was the kindest soul I ever knew probably, we lived together for awhile when I was a teenager and that phase was one of my humiliating life’s rare highlights. He’d play me some old Johnny Winter record, John Lee Hooker, or Bo Diddley’s “Gladiator” and I’d try to get him to like Echo & The Bunnymen or “Head On The Door” or some shit like that. We were from two completely different generations, but we were both deeply devoted to rocknroll. He liked pot, I liked whiskey, we both liked beer and acid, the Doors, MC5 and Love. He’d come to my nowhere band’s little, poorly attended, ridiculous shows at some old man lodges or whatever, in his Ray Ban shades and Brill Creamed slickback hair, cause that’s what he thought high style was for a big night out on the town. I looked stupid in mime makeup and my second hand women’s floor length fur coats and colored tissue paper braided into my hair and fishnet stockings, and combat boots, but we attracted some fervent followers in surplus army coats and spiked Blackie Lawless leather bracelets from a nearby hardcore thrash and stoner scene. Plus all the delivery drivers from my pizza job, and some crazy “River’s Edge” Viet Nam vets, and about ten girls who liked the Cure and Gene Loves Jezebel. Some of our record store loitering punk friends became his backing band for awhile and he’d play some wild old “Nuggets” covers and open for my juvie goth gang, mainly at hog roasts, or backyard parties. Now he’s sadly dead and gone like all the rest, and I got no one to call. I still talk to all those dead people out loud cause I’m sortof nuts like that. Ralph Nader says we gotta organize to defy the WEF plans for cashless society. I remember knowing the Shitlibs of Occupy Eugene could not be trusted, fake resistance/controlled opposition, when they moved out of the banking zones as not to inconvenience rich people, already defeating the whole purpose of the occupation and changed the topic to Gender, and demonized Dr. Jill Stein for recognizing that the media is controlled and the colleges are compromised by their corporate partnerships. My thinking nowadays is it is best to organize resistance movements minus landlordly middle management type status quo preservers, already deeply invested in the permanent fix is in sham. They know deep down shit’s all fucked up, but they just don’t care. It’s all about their own comforts, delusions of popularity, convenience and consumerism. I love the freestyle DIY mf’s like Unholy Rom 3’s bunch up in Michigan, or the DeSpain Carry It Forward factions, who are more interested in building community, providing real emergency services, and helping people in need, than they are in scolding the poor. I wish my original record store guru, Dave Andra could have gotten in on all this legal white people reefer after about sixty five years of looking of his shoulder and having to fret like a character from the “Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers” comicbooks and worry the man was gonna kick down the door and shoot him in his bed for smoking a medicinal herb. I never liked weed, but have mad love for lots of people who it helps. I feel the same way about anybody needing a drink in this cruelty based fanatical prohibition culture. My man died alone in some outta town hospice after two strokes and a heart attack. I am lonesome in this life without him. I can’t stand sellout Sanders or any of the frauds in congress anymore. OBVIOUSLY the crooked billionaires, with the secret islands and super yachts, seed vaults, and bugout bunkers wanna kill off all us poor people and they’re using a lot of different strategies to accomplish that aim. Their politician puppets are all boughtoff or blackmailed into obedience. Jeffret Epstein did not kill himself. Who killed Seth Rich? Who killed Michael Hastings?

Michael Hastings Dead at 33 – Rolling Stone

CATS WOKE ME UP TOO EARLY ALWAYS RUNNIN’ AROUND

So here I am again, with my coffee, cold hands, and only half remembered brittle pictures of my dreams about the long gone past. Dreading the work I gotta do today because it is out of my limited range of tool time blue collar home improver expertise, not only do I not know shit about tools and suck at numbers, but ya know like I got these weak Arthiritic can’t move hands and bad knees and bad back and I’m half blind and I shake, so yeah, being on ladders and holding expensive glass and measuring shit, I’m not great at any of that. We were gifted a firepit for the yard somebody made for us out of an old military drum, so I am pretty excited to have a bonfire soon, even if these bitter frosty days are too cold to be out there for long, I’m still part hillbilly and I still love me some bonfire jams.  I watched that flick about old writer Ben Fong Torres and kinda felt like I missed the golden age of rocknroll my decades, they’d pretty much killed it dead by ’95. I skim the big music mags on line and it’s always such cynical, manipulative, horrible horse shit. Who’d wanna write about any of that even if they were getting paid? Not me, really. The big hype Spin magazine bands are all warmed over Smashing Pumpkins, just like hipsters moaning about being horny and wanting to be seen at the rich people bar. I’m always scrolling through the youtubes and the podcasts looking for something new that matters or might make a difference, or even has some point of view that ain’t just some top down propaganda agenda 21 mockingbird bullshit, on every platform, making a mockery of music, news, medicine, and truth. Where I live now, there’s just like loose cows roaming around at night. I watch the sunrise and sunset, take pictures, not much else to do. Lee Camp the whistle blower comedian complains about being kicked off of platforms by billionaire techlords in cahoots with the secret spy agencies mainly responsible for assassinating democratically elected heads of state, importing drugs to targeted communities, and organzing coups. Me, I never expected any of my platforms to be long lasting cause man, they started cancelling me in like the fourth grade, by the eighth grade, they were circulating illegal memoes about how my challenging the history teacher’s racist narratives and wearing makeup was a “disruption to the learning process” and the admin wanted teachers to paper trail my mildest indiscretions, ‘talking in class, wearing all the things that nobody wears, it’s always been like that. Some drunkass motherfucker would start shit with me for no reason at the bar but I’d be the one that the chickenshit asskissers would throw out. I was writing first hand boots on the ground, real time eye witnes reports from real life riots with racist cops spraying people with rubber bullets at a funeral and the punk guy whose whole mission statement was “free speech”, just like this MIC/diamond mine apartheid heir we have to hear about all day now, the free speech punk was censoring my columns about police abuse. I had a page in a big city news paper for awhile but ya know I ain’t much on Jack White or the Strokes and that fizzled out, too. I’m not an official narrative reciter or teleprompter reader. I don’t like Britney or Taylor or the Foo Fighters or Nsynch. If all media is focused on the royals or insisting something is fair and balanced or safe and effective, or some war was unprovoked-unprovoked-unprovoked, or some ho-hum rightwing thank a kkkop protest was an insurrection–insurrection-insurrection, I tend to instinctively look around to find out what they aint telling us over and over and over and over again on the tv. Whatever they said is good is usually not. And vice versa. They were saying this culture had gotten too Orwellian in the Reagan eighties, but holy fuck balls…everywhere you look, it’s absolute batshit now. Blame it all on a commie bat who was working double secret for Putin-Putin-Putin…The WEF is straight up saying they intend on elnslaving you and taking your shit cause most of you useless eaters are “not needed” but the tv people, they’re all excited cause Miley Cyrus’ new album is about to drop and they wanna have a party in the USA-USA-USA. “Everyone I thought was cool is six feet underground…” Just remembered I gotta go haul a dryer today and do some crazy window repairs.

AMERICAN JETSET AND LAST GREAT DREAMERS

Not bad, not bad. Here’s a newish band I’m just discovering, kindof like part pop and part sleaze, remind you of anyone? Ha, yeah, they got me right away with their melodic catchiness reminiscent of a UK band Three Colours Red, American Heartbreak, Sin City Sinners, and Last Great Dreamers. I guess they play the long decayed old Whiskey/Cathouse circuit with all the hairband last callers like Steven Adler and Steven Pearcy. They call themselves disillusioned descendants of the Sunset Strip and hey man that’s a description I can relate to. Hollywood’s a hard town, you can’t have real friends in Hollywood, everybody’s trying to get to the top of the pops, even when you think somebody gets you, can hear where you’re comin’ from, they can ghost you just like that, no goodbye, never said why. Even and especially the ones you helped. It’s a mercenary culture. A guy who kinda stole my whole bag sent me a postcard telling me to call him, like I got some overflowing warehouse of more stuff for him to take and integrate. That’s the Murkkkan way-ruthless explotation, shameless plaigirism, and keeping the dirty poors in their place. Boots on our necks.

REALLY THOUGH…

For me, it’s been a lonely time since the last little rocknroll scene existed. You know: the Ultras, Motorcycle Boy, Comatones, Nymphs, and Celebrity Skin. I mean nobody’s  really come along since then that packed that kinda punch and made you feel it, they all had songs, style, and worked hard to entertain us. I mean what came after them? The Humpers and Electric Frankenstein I guess, but even that’s what, like, twenty five years ago. The pleasure’s kinda gone outta everything, it all just feels like work. Hard for me to wanna even apply myself, once you’ve been burned, ya can’t go back to the innocence. I got moments of self pity, regrets, resentments, but mostly it’s all dread. Desiring oblivion. I tried watching “True Romance” last night until it got too frigid in the garage hideout, I like when she said, “sometimes it goes the other way, too.” I would not be here were it not for my beautiful better half, I’ll tell ya that. This old world’s just lost all it’s fun and the Doctor Evil motherfuckers are intentionally killing off everything I ever liked or cared about. I keep talkin’ ’bout the same old artists I believe in, whether it’s Gunfire Dance or Billy Idol or Sinead O’Connor or Paul K, it’s cause those are artists I believe in. Joe Strummer sang about the importance of “Diggin’ The New”, right, so I keep lookin’ ’round, ear to the ground, squintin’ at the horizon. I tried to hear the current thing band over at Spin magazine today and I gotta say, it just seems so corny, put together. Faux shocking band name, diverse coalition of college-y, thirty something, being seen at the bar brunch hipsters, regurgitating old Hole and Bikini Kill ideas, I did not feel it. So I dive back into the long gone Raji’s/Al’s Bar/English Acid early nineties Tinseltown to get my rocknroll kicks. I think Alice the Galactic Kid was easily as good as Inger, and they both should have been much bigger, more famous. Courtney sabotoged Inger, I know that much. “Patron Saint Of Fucked Over Musicians” always spoke to me. Me, too, sister. They really did a number on me. it’s hard to even wanna start again.

NO FUTURE FOR ME

“Precrime. Under the pretext of helping overwhelmed government agencies work more efficiently, AI predictive and surveillance technologies are being used to classify, segregate and flag the populace with little concern for privacy rights or due process. All of this sorting, sifting and calculating is being done swiftly, secretly and incessantly with the help of AI technology and a surveillance state that monitors your every move. AI predictive tools are being deployed in almost every area of life.

Mandatory quarantines. Building on precedents established during the COVID-19 pandemic, government agents may be empowered to indefinitely detain anyone they suspect of posing a medical risk to others without providing an explanation, subject them to medical tests without their consent, and carry out such detentions and quarantines without any kind of due process or judicial review.

Mental health assessments by non-medical personnel. As a result of a nationwide push to train a broad spectrum of so-called gatekeepers in mental health first-aid training, more Americans are going to run the risk of being reported by non-medical personnel and detained for having mental health issues.

Tracking chips for citizens. Momentum is building for corporations and the government alike to be able to track the populace, whether through the use of RFID chips embedded in a national ID card, microscopic chips embedded in one’s skin, or tags in retail products.

Military involvement domestically. The future, according to a Pentagon training video, will be militaristic, dystopian and far from friendly to freedom. Indeed, all signs point to the battlefield of the future being the American home front. Anticipating this, the government plans to have the military work in conjunction with local police to quell civil unrest domestically.

Government censorship of anything it classifies as disinformation. In the government’s ongoing assault on those who criticize the government—whether that criticism manifests itself in word, deed or thought—government and corporate censors claiming to protect us from dangerous, disinformation campaigns are, in fact, laying the groundwork now to preempt any “dangerous” ideas that might challenge the power elite’s stranglehold over our lives.

Threat assessments. The government has a growing list—shared with fusion centers and law enforcement agencies—of ideologies, behaviors, affiliations and other characteristics that could flag someone as suspicious and result in their being labeled potential enemies of the state. Before long, every household in America will be flagged as a threat and assigned a threat score. It’s just a matter of time before you find yourself wrongly accused, investigated and confronted by police based on a data-driven algorithm or risk assessment culled together by a computer program run by artificial intelligence.

War on cash. The government and its corporate partners are engaged in a concerted campaign to shift consumers towards a digital mode of commerce that can easily be monitored, tracked, tabulated, mined for data, hacked, hijacked and confiscated when convenient. This push for a digital currency dovetails with the government’s war on cash, which it has been subtly waging for some time now. In recent years, just the mere possession of significant amounts of cash could implicate you in suspicious activity and label you a criminal.

Expansive surveillance. AI surveillance harnesses the power of artificial intelligence and widespread surveillance technology to do what the police state lacks the manpower and resources to do efficiently or effectively: be everywhere, watch everyone and everything, monitor, identify, catalogue, cross-check, cross-reference, and collude. Everything that was once private is now up for grabs to the right buyer. With every new AI surveillance technology that is adopted and deployed without any regard for privacy, Fourth Amendment rights and due process, the rights of the citizenry are being marginalized, undermined and eviscerated.

Militarized police. Having transformed local law enforcement into extensions of the military, the Department of Homeland Security, the Justice Department and the FBI are moving into the next phase of the transformation, turning the nation’s police officers into techno-warriors, complete with iris scanners, body scanners, thermal imaging Doppler radar devices, facial recognition programs, license plate readers, cell phone extraction software, Stingray devices and so much more.

Police shootings of unarmed citizens. Owing in large part to the militarization of local law enforcement agencies, not a week goes by without more reports of hair-raising incidents by police imbued with a take-no-prisoners attitude and a battlefield approach to the communities in which they serve. Police brutality and the use of excessive force continues unabated.

False flags and terrorist attacks. Almost every tyranny being perpetrated by the U.S. government against the citizenry—purportedly to keep us safe and the nation secure—has come about as a result of some threat manufactured in one way or another by our own government. This has become the shadow government’s modus operandi regardless of which party is in power: the government creates a menace—knowing full well the ramifications such a danger might pose to the public—then without ever owning up to the part it played in unleashing that particular menace on an unsuspecting populace, it demands additional powers in order to protect “we the people” from the threat.

Endless wars to keep America’s military’s empire employed. The military and security industrial complexes that have advocated that the U.S. remain at war, year after year, are the very entities that will continue to profit the most from America’s expanding military empire abroad and here at home.

Erosions of private property. Private property means little at a time when SWAT teams and other government agents can invade your home, break down your doors, kill your dog, wound or kill you, damage your furnishings and terrorize your family. Likewise, if government officials can fine and arrest you for growing vegetables in your front yard, praying with friends in your living room, installing solar panels on your roof, and raising chickens in your backyard, you’re no longer the owner of your property.

Overcriminalization. The government has increasingly adopted the authoritarian notion that it knows best and therefore must control, regulate and dictate almost everything about the citizenry’s public, private and professional lives. Overregulation and overcriminalization have been pushed to such outrageous limits that federal and state governments now require on penalty of a fine that individuals apply for permission before they can grow exotic orchids, host elaborate dinner parties, gather friends in one’s home for Bible studies, give coffee to the homeless, let their kids manage a lemonade stand, keep chickens as pets, or braid someone’s hair.

Strip searches and the denigration of bodily integrity. Court rulings undermining the Fourth Amendment and justifying invasive strip searches have left us powerless against police empowered to forcefully draw our blood, forcibly take our DNA, strip search us, and probe us intimately. Individuals—men and women alike—continue to be subjected to what is essentially government-sanctioned rape by police in the course of “routine” traffic stops.

Censorship. First Amendment activities are being pummeled, punched, kicked, choked, chained and generally gagged all across the country. Free speech zones, bubble zones, trespass zones, anti-bullying legislation, zero tolerance policies, hate crime laws and a host of other legalistic maladies dreamed up by politicians and prosecutors have conspired to corrode our core freedoms. The reasons for such censorship vary widely from political correctness, safety concerns and bullying to national security and hate crimes but the end result remains the same: the complete eradication of what Benjamin Franklin referred to as the “principal pillar of a free government.”

Taxation Without Any Real Representation. As a Princeton University survey indicates, our elected officials, especially those in the nation’s capital, represent the interests of the rich and powerful rather than the average citizen. We are no longer a representative republic. With Big Business and Big Government having fused into a corporate state, the president and his state counterparts—the governors—have become little more than CEOs of the Corporate State, which day by day is assuming more government control over our lives. Never before have average Americans had so little say in the workings of their government and even less access to their so-called representatives.

So we need to get moving. What we need to do is work to exacerbate public distrust in imperial media and help people to see they’re being continually deceived about their nation, their government and their world by the powerful. Propaganda only works if people trust the source.

This is the front line of the revolution. Everything else comes second, because until you deal with the fact that our enemy has the most powerful narrative control machine in the history of civilization, none of your other revolutionary ideals will ever be able to manifest. The imperial spin machine should therefore be our primary target. Attack the empire’s news media and its manipulators in Hollywood and Silicon Valley, expose their lies, and weaken public trust in those institutions so that people can no longer be manipulated by them.

Every positive change in human behavior — whether individual or collective — is always preceded by an expansion of consciousness. All we need to do is expand public consciousness of what’s really happening. The more people wake up, the more people will be available to help us.” (-Caitlin Johnstone)BEAUTY SECRETS AND PRO TIPS FROM FITNESS EXPERT AND TOP BEAUTY INFLUENCER GENERAL LABOR:

Media Rewrites Ukraine’s Dark History, New Twitter Files on Rigged Covid Debate | SYSTEM UPDATE #11 (rumble.com)

“Gotta hand it to the empire propagandists for convincing the “populist right” that 1980s-style moral panics and garden variety stuffy social conservatism are actually brave and revolutionary ways to fight the power. You won’t get healthy resistance movements as long as people are being psychologically manipulated into supporting the status quo at mass scale in various ways. The fight starts when we cripple their ability to exert this kind of psychological influence over the public. The imperial spin machine should be our primary target. Attack the empire’s news media and its manipulators in Hollywood and Silicon Valley, expose their lies and weaken public trust in those institutions, because propaganda only works if you trust the source it’s coming from. This is why I place so much emphasis on overthrowing imperial narrative control. The empire’s ability to manipulate the dominant narratives in our society is what keeps us ineffective and confused. Until we can crush their ability to twist perception of reality, they’ve got us. None of this means those healthy impulses are now unhealthy. Just because the narrative managers are twisting them toward sickness doesn’t mean we shouldn’t still want health. The problem isn’t social justice movements etc, it’s the manipulations that get placed overtop them. The healthy impulse for global worker solidarity sees imperialist narrative managers finger-wagging at leftists that they must display “solidarity” with protesters in empire-targeted nations and with Ukrainian soldiers fighting in a US proxy war. Everything healthy gets twisted. Every healthy impulse gets twisted by our rulers. The push toward equality for women got twisted into doubling the workforce and slashing worker pay. The push for racial equality and LGBT rights gets twisted into having to vote for abusive imperialist political parties.” (-Caitlin Johnstone)

It is reasonable to oppose institutions that are rigged against you. The only “democracy” that takes place in Congress is democracy for the rich—which is not democracy at all. It’s oligarchy.

SLEAZY PUNKNROLL ON THE LOWER EAST SIDE

When I was talking about the cool as fuck L.A. glam scene in the twilight’s last gleamings, before the media consolidation act of 96 monopolized the public airwaves, and the inside job 9/11 anti war song bans on radio resulted in all of us having to hear way too much garbage like “Hit Me Baby”, “Livin La Vita Loca”, “Mambo #5”, “Bye Bye Bye”, “I Want It That Way”, and all that insufferable Three Doors Down and Bush and Creed fake as hell post grunge excrement for so many years, Matchbox 20 and Nickelback and Foo Fighters and here we are, still having to hear about facking Miley, Taylor, Dave Grohl and the Justins all day everyday, twentyfive years later. I’m remembering there was also still a neon throbbing nightlife happening in NYC around the same time until Giulliani and Chertoff decided to Palestine the Village, and drive out all the poor people with riot quads in Tompkins Square Park, and hardon overpolicin,g and using some ancient Footloose anti dance law to shutdown all the hard partying legit melting pot nightclubs like Limelite and later, Coney Island High, but there was a time right before D-Generation started rolling in the money and bigname producers and became the only game in town aside from the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion scene, when real rocknroll influenced little punk bands like the Phantoms and Fur and Piss Factory and Bebe Buell and the Waldos and the Lunachicks were still around, really makin’ it a fun scene in the Green Door party era. I got to see a lot of those bands and even jam with some of them. One night the Phantoms from New Orleans played one of the best shows I’d ever seen at the Continental. The Waldos, too, and of course, Pillbox! I love Phoebe Legere so much, too. Gentrification is a wokey Mcwoke realtor code word for getting rid of the poor people by jacking up rents so only trust fund nepo babes can be in certain zipcodes, and overpolicing people who do not present as sufficiently middle class, so that means me, it was perfected in Manhattan by Mossad peeps, then imported to like every medium sized city. The facist pigs and booj landlords called their strongarm tactics “Broken Window Theory” and started categorizing loitering, jaywalking, rough sleeping and panhandling “quality of life crimes”. Then, they easily convinced all the white property owning middle class college educated people that they were being infringed upon by the unsightly presence of all us dastardly poors, that the middle class owners and landlords were society’s real victims, so that helped ’em see us lower class artists and punks and less affluent people from all walks of life as “bums”, “winos”, or (this one kills me) “travelers”, making “lifestyle choices”, so when they’d see people shivering in the sleet, moms fleeing abuse or PTSD veterans, they could tell themselves they had made a “lifestyle choice”, or when they saw the cops kick people awake and steal their tarps or tents or backpacks and kidnap their companion animals, they told themselves it was to create a “vibrant and diverse” neighborhood. All those P.C. culture rollouts were weaponized against the left and against the poor. The oligarchy will use anything to justify keeping poor folks under their boot. 

    During Occupy Wall Street, cops started beating up NYU middle class people, too, and chemical spraying women, and media just ignored it and showed more footage of Obama being cool and wearing taupe and playing b-ball with Jay Z. He said we can’t look back at Bush/cheney crimes and we’re just gonna let it play out with brutes abusing water protectors at standing Rock, blowing girls arms off, and see no eveil feelgoodist NPR shitlibs just look the other way and pretend like it’s not happening. Then, they made an exaggerated big deal about a Maga protest at the Capital cause rich plane owning inside trading millionaire politicians do not like being held accountable or having to meet with their constituents. Racist rightwing politicians started writing laws during the Ferguson and Baltimore uprisings that it was legal for rightwingers to run demonstrators over with their cars if they disagreed with their messaging. They want most of us to die suddenly and the rest of us to stay in our tiny cells except when we ar making them money somehow, so I knew the whole gentrification shit was gonna be bad for everybody, a long time ago, when my old associates were first getting in bed with rich racist bar owners and sporto popular hometown coke dealers. So a whole generation shifted away from congregating in overpriced nightclubs for richies and got online, now, they’ve deployed a million spooks to eavesdrop on your phones via NSA, a million TSA spooks to fondle your private parts at the airport for Rapiscan and Chertoff profits, and a million more to police what you say online about how “WATER IS LIFE”, which I still believe but shitlibs don’t care cause Hillary got to be fracker in chief after Cheney and she is female. The man does not waunt us online organizing or talking to people about how these elections aren’t real-they are mostly staged and decided in smoky backrooms, or how we need to force the vote on healthcare if we have representation and house all the people and we need to make the politicians stop giving weapons and military power to lowbrow ape aggressors in the so called homeland-then, the Pandemic clampdowns with Brad Pitt being trotted out to play Fauchi on SNL, and Fauchi throwing out the first baseball and being characterized by shitlib media all around the clock for years as the GREATEST SAINT WHO EVER LIVED with all the pig media covering up his involvement with animal experimentation and funding gain of function bioweapon reearch, that’s when they really, really, successfully finally taught people to fear their neighbors might have the cooties of death, and divided everybody even more, over trite topics like do cloth masks prevent transmission. Democrat celebrities would be at champagne parties without masks, but the peasants, the servants, the second class citizens were required to wear masks and shitlibs who love their privileges more than truth, all co signed that fuckedup bullshit by just blindly and obediently repeating the trust science mantra. It aint science that rich people don’t have germs, only the second class servants. Wow that’s batshit, and how did one virus sick bat fly to 150 countries in a week? So yeah now things are permenently fucked and more NWO rollouts are underway while they keep the working class divided and quarreling over nickel and dime shit forever. 

 So I don’t think we’ll ever see a crazy cool hedonistic sparkling fun nightlife like we did when all the various tribes and subcultures mixed it up on the Lower East Side. They try pretending they still got it goin’ but without poor people, it’s just boomer aged kareoke-richies playing covers of songs that were written by poor people from the seventies. No motherfuckin born rich millionaire ever wrote “Chinese Rocks” or “Can’t Your Arms Around A Memory”, but here’s some old people with wealth doing more covers of the same ten songs til Doomsday. A lot of my fave rockers had to leave that town and most of ’em left the country. I’ll probably never get to see Jeff Ward or Chris Barry or Ratboy in real life again, all the cool people scattered to other freer and more affordable parts of the planet. I’ve never been cool with authoritarianism. Somehow, the powers that be have convinced a safespace generation and a half that like, bombing the shit out of Libya and bringing back slavery is okeydokey and wokey Mcwokeness as long as Hillary, a female, is giving the kill orders, or that torturing human beings cause you don’t like their religion is acceptable so long as Gina Haspel is giving the orders and she is female and some gay women are involved in the degrading and human experimentation of Muslim males. That droning a teenage citizen of our country is okay so long as the Prez is part black. The identity politricks is empty tokenism and if you were truly a critical thinker, you’d have principles, and not just obey tv models, or confuse body parts or skin tone for virtue or character. My town’s Wal Mart always hires gay females to be their loss prevention and I can never wrap my mind around their overeager wanting to bust poor people for shoplifting, I heard an obese lady probation officer on her cellphone yesterday and looked her in the eye, trying to find a streak of humanity in there, nothing. All these people have been programmed to want to be authority figures, controlling less powerful people, handcuffing motherfuckers, putting them in abuse gulags, and I think it’s sad and disgusting. But we got Democrats in bed with actual nazis, now, so ya know, people who “self identify” with this or that, frequently choose their identity labels or sports team uniform colors over doing what is righteous or kind or decent or humane.

Sister Morphine “Ghosts Of Heartbreak City”

SISTER MORPHINE had a first life from 1989 to 1991 in South Wales. They even got a deal with South Bank Studio who released the MANIC STREET PREACHERS‘ “Suicide Alley” 7″. After those pandemic times, the members of the band decided it was the right time to give life to some of their long lost songs and they even gave birth to four new songs including high energy opener “Holy City Zoo” and the power pop hit “8 Tracks and Zodiacs”. Sometimes band reunions are a bit scary after a long time but SISTER MORPHINE haven’t lost their rock’n’roll edge since songs like “Do You Wanna Get Wasted?”, “Nothing Dirty In The Truth” or “Ghosts Of Heartbreak City” sound like some good late 80s/early 90s sleazy rock’n’roll. Names like QUIREBOYS (especially on “Get Back Home”) or GUNFIRE DANCE come to mind and songs like “Cry The Rain” or “Days Of Wine & Roses” could have been mix tape favourites in rock’n’roll high-school. The ROLLING STONES influence is obvious in songs like “Waiting On Salvation” or in “Living With Snakes” and you’ll even get a glam punk fix with “Red Eye Juice.” Sometimes the band even takes you deep into the glorious 70s with the catchy “Sea Of Love” and even though the music is pure rock’n’roll, the vocals sometimes remind me of WEDNESDAY 13 (“Black Hearts & Bruised Egos”.) 15 songs usually sound like too much for me but when the last song (“Seven Long Years”) stops, I tend to get back to it for a couple more. High quality rock’n’roll ! /Laurent C.

“NATO doesn’t promote peace, they create wars. Close to $100,000,000,000 has been transferred from the American taxpayer to the military industrial complex, and the most corrupt country in Europe. The Zelensky Show comes to America

Ticket Price : $34,000,000,000. I don’t know about the rest of the world because I’ve spent my life in the military and growing up and living in America So I can’t judge Russia, China or anyplace else I can judge my country and live in actual reality, not the one the rulers put on our TV. Did Zelenskyy come to America with a fleet of armored cars to carry our taxpayers cash? I don’t know why I refuse to accept the fact that our citizens are brainwashed enough to let our Gov’t and ruling class con us into willingly be involved in another one of their wars. Translation: We’re stealing billions more from you and giving it to our donors and the most corrupt country in Europe right in front of your faces to keep this war that we provoked going Thanks again Suckers.” (-Black In The Empire)

“War is not all that’s profitable in NATO’s proxy war in Ukraine.

U.S. politicians would rather turn Ukraine into a charity cause than to demand peace. Why? Because the more dependent Ukraine is on U.S. financial help, the more their corporations can plunder from the country. Zelensky is a war criminal. Joe Biden is a bigger war criminal. The military industrial complex is run by war criminals. The entire U.S. empire and its junior partners are war criminals.” (-Danny Haiphong)

“Zelensky got a standing ovation in the US congress for being an outstanding customer of Raytheon.” (-Hassan Mafi)

“Zelensky couldn’t give an interview to David Letterman in English, but he suddenly speaks it perfectly now that he’s begging US tax payers to send billions of dollars to weapons makers & foreign oligarchs

I suppose that as an actor, he’s used to selling a script.” (-Anya Parampil)

“I see a million walk the city mile

The ticker-tape kings and the juveniles
Will anybody tell me which way to go
Will anybody come back on the C.B. radio

I'm counting the stars and the telegraph poles
And each one represents the hopes of a soul
You'd think that God wouldn't be so hard
When you see all the little children running, 
Running in the backyard

On a Mississippi gourd with a Sub-Sahran song
Somebody is wailing in the financial district sun
Can anybody feel the distance to the Nile
I wanna live and I wanna dance awhile

Gonna make like Eddie on my rockabilly train
Gonna beat out the blues on my ball and chain
Oh, you can't pull a hold-up with a Be-Bop gun
There's people living now
Who ain't got no heart and ain't never had none..." (-Joe Strummer)

“Mitch McConnell says that the #1 priority for the US government is giving the military-industrial complex and the Ukraine government billions more.

“We are participants in it whether we like it or not. And the biggest danger we face is our apathy in the face of authoritarian brutality and violent repression.

Fascism is intentional. It is intentional in its obsession with a fictional and romanticized past. A sentimental vision of a history that never happened. An addiction to the glorification of nationalistic militarism. It is intentional in its drive to silence voices that criticize its narrow understanding of history or the place and treatment of women or of minorities. It is intentional in its misogyny, its racism, its homophobia, its xenophobia, its violence. And given the right circumstances, like economic disparity, ecological crises or institutional rot, it can sweep through any society like a flood. And it can create a new normal in the blink of an eye, leaving us grieving for the life we once thought was simply ordinary.” (-Ken Orphan)

JIM JONES AND THE RIGHTEOUS MIND

Ya know I’m still negatively reeling from the stupid suicide of my childhood friend Jaysin B from about four years ago. I’ll tell ya the craziest part of it, to me, besides the fact that the kid was always so lovable, charming, talented and good looking is how unmoved the rest of our teenage delinquent squad were by his tragic exit, that shocks me, those guys are just so unmoved stoic, it tells me so much about how they really feel about me, too. I know people cope with grief and trauma differently but this kid was a huge part of all our lives and only two people we knew even seemed to give a flying fuck about it. I just shudder cause I always knew he could have been a comedian, an actor, a rockstar, a million things, but he had some heavy childhood traumas that kept him chained to that abusive town we came from, trying so hard to set things right and only ever being allowed to get it wrong again and again, he was just forever being busted by the sanctimonious courts and cops and pretty people he sought affirmation from. So sad, so dumb. He’s got a Facebook memorial page where some trendy people I never particularly got along with from the eighties at least are expressing an awareness of his loss, and he posted all these Alan Watts videos about consciousness and a video of some rippling water-was that where he killed himself, scene of the crime? I dunno but I’m already haunted by a long lost love who did the same shit, a beautiful bartender who killed herself the same age and day her mom did. That childhood trauma shit is a real motherfucker-especially in those fucked up, acutely dysfunctional little tankplant towns where the people act out all these night time soap opeera dramas they were programmed with growing up. Life imitates tv in sad sports shitholes. I tried unsuccessfully to pull that kid out of that punishing, loveless, sadistic enviornment on multiple occassions, but he kept on foolishly returning to the devil he knew like a dog to it’s vomit. He’s kinda always on my mind, he was one of my besties, we met in a counseling program for troubled teens. I used to read him my poetry back when that was not a thing that dudes shared with each other and he always got it, he knew exactly where I was coming from, cause aside from his being way better looking and therefore enjoying a little more social mobility, he was subjected to all the same crass bullshit. I think I just gave up before he did, I quit seeking that pat on the head from Judge Judy and Grumpy Coach Green. The girl’s volleyball coach Catholic school counselor was never gonna “get me”.  Poor kid, he was lovely. Flawed, troubled, but very sweet. Several of my other good buddies, and even a foxy goth girlfriend were foolishly hammered into military service by insane parents and smalltown screws-one of them killed himself too, and the others are so PTSD they can’t function or have sincere relationships anymore. These dumb wars don’t just slaughter the brown people over there, they also destroy the souls and families of the so called Real Murkkkan heroes that get abandoned on the streets, so rich Republikkans can cleverly yell “get a job” out their biggest truck guzzling tanklike vehicles, and nervous shitlib Black Lives Matter rainbow flag Karens can call the cops on ’em for begging for money at the offramp. When you get real physically sick, especially if ypu’re heavily medicated, you start thinking about all that happened, what you were trying to accomplish, what is important with what little time remains. I’m so lucky I got out when I did, even if i stupidly went back for more bullshit pummelings about two more times before I really got the message and it finally sunk in. I had this goth friend who was gonna go to college in New England, she knew I needed out of that wretched place, so she took me and my little tribe with her. it was hard times, a rough hustle, in a bad neighborhood in the blue collar ghetto where her aunt got us an apartment, always wondered if her family kinda put us there on purpose to thwart our rocknroll mission so she’d retreat back to her hometown, but she got us there and that was the important thing, mighta saved some of us really, cause we easily could have ended up like our fallen amigo had we stayed there like he did. any of us. Yep, even the millionaire everybody prays to now. Instead, we discovered a whole fast paced frenzy of meeting all these wild and influential characters like Doc Hume and Mister Butch, Monoman and Willie Loco Alexander, Ned “Flathead” Landlin, and Aimee Mann and Peter Wolf. We learned about alot more writers and sixties firebrand activists traditions. One of our lot started taking karate and then joined a chess club, and a blues band, then, he was collaborating musially with Fiona Apple like sexy ingenue waifs, then he went to med school. Another guy started taking acid and exploring other realms of consciousness and writing these heartfelt rootsy Amerikkana type songs in a Bob Seger or Soul Asylum kinda tradition, wooing many beautiful women dancing to rave music on the second loor of Axis-he even fronted his own band for awhile called SIX that played the big nightclubs. I was getting to know all kindsof new people like this older goth couple who wrote these really farout proto darkwave songs, a folkie girl who was really savvy about all the English bands. Some brothers from nearby Milford who taught me about all kinds of great music. I got a job at Tower Records and started meeting people like Led Zeppelin everyday. I saw Thee Hypnotics and that was a big gamechanger for me, like, “bingo”. Shazam. That was what I wanted to do, maybe a slightly less jammy version, but those guys threwdown in a way that nobody else was and that was really a big moment for me. They were all real nice guys, too. I kept in touch of some of ’em for years and years, until like one of ’em had  some unpredictable quickdraw shootout celebrity feud with another rockstar friend of mine and I kinda got caught in all the crossfire, collateral damaged. Didn’t matter, I got alot from those guys and still draw some inspiration from Brother Ray and Jim. I think they were brilliant songwriters, atmosphere conjurors, and keep blasting out new rocknroll with a religious fervor. The UK is just way more rocknroll than this NFL and Wal Mart lowest common denominator stupfied military culture. They “get” bands like Thee Hypnotics and Beasts Of Bourbon over there. Only a few big city slickers ever, ever really understood or recognized what my little gang was doing, but it was of that same spirit. They gentrification hipsters are the ones who made off with summa our material, or nicked our glam drummer or desirable girlfriends, or copped our style a whole lot down to the pink pants, same sunglasses, whole thing, but most people who’d see my little bands play were usually struck dumb, stunned, terrified, hated it. Nerds called us white trash bruisers, confrontational and challenging. It was not rocket science. We just had some hard and fast songs we delivered with some passion, and were therefore appaaaarently somewhat persuasive about our anger, that’s how I felt about it. We thrived on that dangerous kinda conflict for awhile, but really found it laughably absurd, when these nerdy sweater vest, prep school glee club pop geeks and backpack yearbook committee straightedge safespace namy pamby Subway worker college types would respond to us like we were G.G. Allin, cause we thought we were just playing real stripped down to it’s primal essence, authentic rocknroll with me singing from my savage lil’ heart. Now I’m old and feeling deathly ill here and I’m just so glad I got to experience some stuff like seeing the Fleshtones, the Waldos, Gunfire Dance, Pillbox, Phantom Chords, Wayne Kramer, and Thee Hypnotics. I really love Jim Jones-he’s what a male rocknroll singer should be like in my estimation. Wish I had a bottle, all I got is this here crazy fever and all the echoes of my mind.

JOAN JETT

My aunt got me that big “I Love Rocknroll” lp for Christmas when I was 11 and still studying with the Greg Goldston theatrical troupe and it was an immediate hell yeah. I’d been listening to like all these middle of the road George Harrison and Wings records and Joan was like a bomb on all that. I was not aware of Johnny Thunders or Stiv Bators yet, but I was wise to the Go-Go’s and the Pretenders and only vaguely becoming aware of Iggy and the Sex Pistols from reading used copies of Trouser Press and Zigzag magazines from the nearby town’s hippie used record store, Mind Dust. I say “hippie” cause Bubble Puppy was like THE band to the much older guys who worked there, also Balloon Farm, and some foreign band called Charlee. I was one of those males who wanted to dress and look like Joan and Chrissie. I went on to discover “Bad Reputation” and the Runaways and had some bad impressions of Kenny laGuna cause the other Runaways always felt locked out of Joan’s post fame life and I still have truck loads of admiration and compassion for all those girls, but having seen that documentary several times, I get it now. He saved her from failure, poverty, obscurity, maybe an early grave. Everybody with that much talent and charisma should have somebody believe in them like the Laguna family believed in Joan. That’s what a ROCKNROLL VOICE sounds like. Joan Jett. Lemmy. Little Richard. Wild and untamed. Wild and untamed. That’s why we call it rocknroll, not Adelle or fucking cocktail jazz. How did people become so stupid these past twenty five years? Chomsky says college people are the easiest to propagandize, Hedges says our greatest flaw as a people is our profound inability to even IMAGINE how evil the technocrat billionaire ruling classes are. I think the Joan Jett story is not just about her advocating for the Riot Girl movement and for finding Mia Zapata’s killer, to me, the even more romantic part of her story was how a few Real Friends who believed in each other, shared a common vision and stayed loyal to their beliefs and to each other, set a shining example, overcame every obstacle as a team, broke down all the doors.  They believed in freedom and they believed in each other-so important finding other good people to fight for waht is right with. That’s what’s gone missing. Committed, passionate people can do anything they choose. She still has the fire, the sex appeal, the rocknroll authority, integrity, all that, but she also still has that tight knit family who she co created it all with. Lucky bunch. This one’s goin’ out to all the lost lads.

ALVIN GIBBS & THE DISOBEDIENT SERVANTS

I probably brushed with this guy when I met Iggy and Andy as a kid, as I think he was touring with them at the time, but me and my doomed buddy Mitch (RIP) were too concerned with the usual crowd of grimacing, gathering, baseball capped fratboys who were giving us the glare in the back alley behind the collegetown nightclub, ya know, doing their obligatory menacing Ohio Male bit, the usual pack of dumbfuck bruisers required by state law there to kinda stare you down, to let you know some more how they Disapprove. Iggy saw the whole thing and shrugged ’em all off sayin’ that’s exactly how their parents and older brothers had treated him before he became famous. He was a real cool guy. He made us feel so great. Alvin’s been in a lotta cool bands, I mean the UK Subs were always one of the most fun and glammy of the English hardcore bands. I keep thinkin’ about Wattie from the Exploited collapsing suddenly and how we’re never supposed to ask any questions about anything ever, unless we’re “Russian Trolls”, or “Anti Science” or “Sexist Bernie Bros”, or blah blah blah whatever. I never could stand to be around the Obedients for every long, I’m sorta anti stormtrooper, I’ll tell ya that! I like rocknroll ya know and that’s what Alvin Gibbs is all about, he likes it too. I was always surprised when Cheap And Nasty were unable to get a break over here-especially with Nasty appearing in that painfully ubiquitous Guns N Roses video, and them releasing the old Hanoi lp’s on Uzi Suicide.  I’m glad as hell some authentic punk soul rockers cats like him and Charlie Harper are still treading the boards and of course I can’t stand no fauxwoke P.C. nonsense, internet know nothing, shit talkin’ rumor mongers slagging those guys as being nazi affiliated, especially not when these same vegan safespacers all voted for politicians who actually ARE Nazi affiliated, and paying real nazis lots of money to fight Nato targeted countries! I read stories once a year in my precious and coveted annual issue of “Vive Le Rock” magazine, if I’m lucky, about Harper and company still sleeping at squats, still getting in the van, still playing rebellious punk music for the people and I find that so inspiring. People I knew wouldn’t do that in their twenties, let alone their autumn years. We don’t have no real punks left over here, just maybe some old guys who get to be book signing red carpet celebrities, or get rich quick tattoo artists on the coasts, or some excessively rich and charitable rockstars give ’em money to open a bar or whatever, but I mean REBELLIOUS punk rockers. Not got-mine dickhead capitalists in leather jackets who just care about Making More Money. You know in the midwest where I grew up, there are still rightwing Kid Rock Woodstock 99 sports mooks with like Rev. Horton Heat t shirts and Doc Martin collections who tell our former friends I “can’t be punk” cause..why, my long hair! Ha ha ha. Somehow Iggy and Rollins and Gibby Haynes and everybody else can still be punk but they wanna see my credentials, my hall pass. They just mad I won’t be in their asskiss club. Fuck those chickenshit conformist cocksuckers anyways. Poison Idea were right as rain when they said “Record Collectors are Pretentious Assholes”.The real truth is all those ten thousand record owning honchos can’t stand the fact that I’ve always stood for something and can’t be bought, it embarrases ’em to see anybody livin’ by any code, aside from their standard frathouse hazing, big truck wins, conventional bigmouth macho blowhard, my dad owns the auto parts store, Skoal chewin’, Joe Dirt, boy scout world. “Elevator goin’ up” and “Vroom Vroom” gun your manly automobile engine, all that shit. Brand Yeccch. Maybe I should’ve split for the UK a long time ago cause my country sucks, they’re all bamboozled and hoodwinked hive minds, just eagerly awaiting orders from Zuckerberg and Musk and Bezos. I can’t stand my fellow countrymen at this point. To most of them, rocknroll is just loud music you play during halftime chantings of “USA USA”, or to get real charged up and gung ho about Top Gun military service, it’s just a means to an end, something they copy poorly, because they desire wealth or tribal acceptance. I got motherfuckers trying to take credit for my original songs they only ever arranged covers of, had no real hand in composing, I mean I’m supposed to just accept that and hear some harpies singing “you shoulda gone to college, shoulda been a lawyer, shoulda bought more Bitcoin, shoulda had a parent in publishing, shoulda shoulda shoulda..” It’s tedious and gruelling at this point. A lady I was doing some work for politely laid me off and replaced me with more competant and qualified help-I can’t say I blame her really, I’m surly even when scrubbing, but I’m gonna need a new hustle once I get past this wretched virus, cause Gropey Joe’s war economy is killing us, which is obviously the big plan, bringing their puppet to Congress for many standing ovations like they did with Netanyahu, more bullshit lies for war and scapegoat boogeymen and all that shit–meanwhile everything has quadrupled in price and everybody’s greedhead gouging and Blaming Putin. All I can think is how my longlost homeless blackeyed bassplayer, Kid Loser was right when he said, “No one cares and no one remembers, fuck those people.” He was so right. He had a better sense of humor than me, pissed his inheritance away in like a couple of months, never took anything seriously. I always liked that kid, he was a bratty mooch with a big mouth and people were always punching him, but he never let it break his little troublemaker spirit. I hope he’s still alive out there, drinking his Milwaukee’s Best Ice, talkin’ all night about the Ex Idols and Mother Love Bone and Veruca Salt and Urge Overkill and pissing off everybody who believes they are “More Popular”. We wrote good songs together that people who dislike us both still cover. He used to carry his guitar around and we’d belt out “Drunk Like Me” in the street at lunchtime already shitfaced. Infuriated all the squares and nine to fivers and they took rather more than a pound of flesh from us. I’m still alive to tell the tales, so who knows, maybe he is too. Last time I saw him was at the Public Library where he spent his days cause he became houseless in the cold winter. I gave him twenty bucks but I had to leave the midwest. Long Live “The Kid”.

Alvin Gibbs is one of those dudes we all looked up to cause he was always dead cool and not mucking about. Ya ever hear Brian James & The Brains? “Cold Metal”? He’s a real true rocknroll motherfucker and that’s like a dying species. Chrissie Hynde and others keep predicting a new rebel rock will emerge from all this oppression and tyranny and mediocrity and forced bullshit, but I ain’t seen no evidence of it yet. Only real signs of rebel rock I see when i squint are still coming from Australia or the UK. I do like Factory Superstars from Hollywood quite a bit. Dramarama, but other than them, aint nothin’ really happenin’ at all. So here’s some Disobedience for ya, the way it should be, played properly. With guts. How it’s done.Reminds me of US Bombs a little bit. Good vocals. Bit Vanianesque. Apparently, he’s an author as well. You probably already heard his funny Andy McCoy impression on Youtube.

Only things I miss about big cities are indian food and “Vive Le Rock” magazine and access to record stores that have cool cds and lps on the shelf.

THE GREAT RESIST, THE PEOPLE SAYING NOPE TO WOULDBE EMPERORS LIKE BEZOS, MUSK, GATES, & SCHWAB! #NOTMYKING

Did you ever suffer over motherfuckers who thought they were your friends but they were only ever using you to “get somewhere”, be around girls, or parlay their association with you into some kindof money scheme? Me, too. I look around at people in this country and they all seem like such suckers and rubes for buying into the whole Hierarchy and mushmouthed myth of Murkkkan “exceptionalism” and red scare and Muslim hating xenophobia, and hate your neighbor if he won’t do what you tell him, the batshit fauxwoke notion of being able to enforce your preferences or beliefs on others, and that whole dumb okeydokey hokeypokey? Me, too, man, but I was the same way once myself-I been a rube so many times, a fool for love, believed work will set you free, took bad abuse jobs trying to earn some kindof license to live, even if only in a lonely bedsit in the ghetto with a hairnet nd bloody wet apron and dead on my feet nad drinking shit bottom of the  barrel liquor just to cope and mostly just slavishly trying to not be fucked with by sexual predator cocaine promotors, the burly bouncer hockey players, and yachtclub untouchable Thurston Howell no shame junkie drugdealers, and Hee Haw yokel predators of Bottomfeeder USA. All I can tell ya is I did have some times when me and the Bastards bunch, my old band in ghetto Allston had much merriment and solidarity, creativity and good times cause we were loyal to the cause of working together, all pitching in and doing our part. That’s how the good stuff happens-you gots to be willing to share, not take more than your share, and you gotta stop ripping people off. Those two things. Carry your own weight, don’t rip people off callously. Should be easy to find four good people willing to adhere to those two simple guidelines, right? Not in a sports competition non stop repetition empire where they’re all trained from birth to believe that money is all that matters and winning is everything. I see the blood feuds all these rich fuckedup siblings get in, fighting over the parents shit, it’s just gruesome to me. I want nothing to do with the bloodsucking people on the hill, the tv watchers, the sports bar pinkyrings, and cetainly not their Globalist bankster NWO cult members or Nato one world government wooden dummies. I do not applaud Zelensky, or Fauchi, Netanyahu, Juan Gaido, Nancy Pelosi, the coup government they’re trying to force on Peru, or anybody else the Man tells me to. I do not like Elon Musk or the Kardashians. Fuck those people. Think for yourself even if high paid college grads on shitlib media tell you all day long to just trust the nice millionaires on tv over and over and over and over again. If I was gonna thank Obama for anything, it’d be for teaching me not to fall for snake oil hucksters in slick suits even if they speak in the cadences of gospel preachers, say vaguely uplifting words other people wrote, or have nice manners with their rich wives. Ex punks and former like, coffeehouse REM people who support these disgraceful wars cause the weapon makers tv provided them with a comic book fiction good versus evil narrative are tragic but also grotesque.

Reminder:

Hunter Biden made millions in Ukraine while his father the VP was put in charge of Ukraine and his father is on video bragging about firing their prosecutor.

We’ve been told there was nothing to see here. Ukraine isn’t better off with the billions American taxpayers had stolen from us, but the weapons industry, Ukranian Oligarchs and our politicians damn sure are.

Ukraine could have just honored their signed peace agreement with Russia and it would have cost us and them nothing. The same people telling you Russia tried to interfere in the 2016 elections have now been proven to have interfered in the 2020 elections. For 8 straight years Russia was working on implementing the agreed upon Peace agreement, while the West who never planned to honor it was arming Ukraine for war.” (-Black In The Empire)

JOKER’S WILD


I still somewhat redundantly submit these columns here cause I been censored by almost every magazine I ever wrote for in this country and my town aint even got a print shop so I can’t make fanzines no more, maybe I’ll do a limited run chapbook sometime this year I dunno cause the wife uses the printer for her resell biz and ink cartridges get expensive. I keep trying to connect with even one other person who sees all the same kinda shit I do. Is there anybody out there? I keep thinking about that “Rock Art & The X Ray Style” song. Joe had so much figured out, just about the value of community, the bonfire, the cb radio, of making art even if the dumbfuck general public never understand it, or you only have very limited or primitive tools to work with, of broadcasting our tiny smoke signals to the faraway black sheep and fellow exiles and wrong kinds of non comformists. Trying to find the others and communicate is part of how we Stay Human, which is something Tessa Fights Robots talks about. There is rights to protest or privacy or bodily autonomy or free speech in Murkkka, believe me. If you’ve seen the articles about the Cop City compound they built, you’ll understand why they needed to make such a fuss about the Maga protest and had AOC baying for anti protest laws cause she wa s traumatized. She is definitely an intelligence asset, mostly vetted for her marketable appearance and willingness to sit down when Pelosi instructs her to. There is certainly no free press here-it’s all weaponzied Pentagon Media, propaganda of the lyinass fascist dystopian NWO/Davos elites, Lockheed Martin and Raytheon and the big banks, you dig? Other countries where I distantly know a few people seem way more free and observant, like, hip to what’s really goin’ down in front of them, than this one. Can you believe I used to consort with people who never even mention Julian Assange? La da da, look at my hair, la da da, come to my spoken word, la da da, buy my product. That’s all they care about, becoming products. I’d rather stand by my beliefs and priciples than shift some fucking boxes of stuff I paid to have made. Sheesh. No Values is the spirit of the age. The Big 5 mockingbird media is all powerful among the Divided Slaves Of Amnesia, they’re all just trained to unconditionally “identify” as this, or that. It’s all the same shit of course, but with a different sports team uniform color. They all think tv is real, elections are real, regulatory agencies still function for the good of the people, and that the fraud squad are their friends. Rightwingers are trying to champion a Gitmo human rights violator as some beacon of liberty. If he’ll dehumanize and torture human beings based on their religion, in Dick Cheney gulags, he’ll do it here, too. Of course Biden will, too, he’s helping overthrow Peru and giving all our healthcare and universal housing money to a Nato puppet for more endless war right now. I do not know any anti war activists where I live. All my former associates parrot television. “Go Team, rah rah” motherfuckers. They’re all Thank Obamas-they identify as liberals and progressives, but support no progressive values or principles, not unions, not peace. They let people like Klaus Scwab and Bill gates tell them who their enemies are. It’s all about worshipping puppet politicians and overpaid liars on tv and repeating what they say. “Orange Man Bad”. You don’t say…? Just came up with that one on the spur, just now, did ya? How VERY illuminating, I can see you are HIGHLY educated and that you Trust The Science and stand with Zelensky and it was Her Turn and you respect Lyn Cheney’s bravery and Chelle really MADE A DIFFRENCE and you wanna go back to how it was under Obama when it was also classy and dahing and we just need more techlord protections from Misinformation and Russia Troll farms hacking our elections with those dastrdly Buff Bernie memes, online. China bad, Russia bad, Iran bad, Saudis good, Israel good, Gropey Joe good, Foo Fighters and Billie Eilish? Extra special secret sauce super dooper double good and Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga and Beyonce. They are geniuses. And the Kardashians are self made, strong, independent single ladies. Grim, grisly, darkening days. Not a lotta introspection happening over here in this country. I figured the whole shithouse was up in flames when a geeky Phish kid, a jamband reeferhead I knew and worked with in a thanklessly hot kitchen, enlisted in the military to go fight those bad guys who were coming here for our freedom fries, good jobs and benefits and just hated us for our freedom. Laura Bush said we had to invade Afghanistan For Feminism. Worked like magic. Like Colt 45-“Works Everytime”.

About 100 years ago I was friends witha hard partying couple who would always say, “I’m hit”, or “I got hit last night”, meaning they were still hungover. I got hit by that creepy plague. Oh man, this dreaded covid bullshit gets worse by the day, tore up from the floor up as those self-recriminating people like to say, the bodyaches, the chills, the sore throat, it’s pretty awful. You know they concocted some real evil shit when you been through it all and did most of it twice, but you’re laying there helpless for twenty hours a day thinking you might die. I remember one other mutant virus where we had to go get some special prescription pack of pills to shake it about fifteen years ago. I remember being told my fever was so high in the county hospital post seizure that I almost died, that was all the way back when I was about 22, maybe 23, the nurses had me velcro strapped down to a gurney while they punishingly applied ice packs to my burning body as I screamed. I’ve had alcohol poisoning a couple times, food poisoning a few times, and cough syrup overdosed in a dark tattoo shop with a beautful girl who ended up seeing me in a shocking state, but this…is bad. I think about my grandparents who mostly raised me, how I must have worried them way back when I left home at a young age and galavanted around the big cities searching for my own place in the sun. I was not there for my grandfather when he was dying cause a woman decided that’d be the perfect time to divorce me, bit of a distraction that, had to find a place to live. I know I really failed him. Our last conversation was gruelling, I don’t think he really forgave me for never measuring up to his  middle class standards, and a jealous family member always rubbed that in. I did much better caring for my grandmother and aunt for their last few years. I moved back to my hometown and retrieved medicine and grocery shopped and cleaned and took a bad night shift job, and walked back n forth from the hospital, while I was doing all that, my ex took my kids across the country, bonded them to a series of strangers and now they don’t really know who I am, It took me too long to follow her out there almost three years probably, and even then, she’d already conditioned them to sorta reject my side of their family. No word from my daughter in years. Seems she cut ties with her more controlling and powerful other relatives, too. I’ve tried to make peace with my own kids and parents and some faraway people I owed amends to. You do the best you can and give the rest to a higher power, I’m not in charge of any outcomes, they say, in that cult of perpetual self blaming. Ended up in too many one-way relationships with people who only showup empty handed when they burn all other bridges and never even think to bring anything to the table, or in our tradition, the hobo stew, they just feel entitled to take what little we barely got left, so I waste less time investing in those types. I was reading that Chrissy Amphlett bio and man she went through even crazier, more brutal and chaotic shit than me, from a performing arts childhood with a traumatized veteran father and doting mom, to being a surfer party girl at the druggy beach, to discovering psychedelics and hippie-drifting all around the globe relying on the kindness of strangers, bartending, trading on her looks, having affairs, and pinballing from one loser nowhere band to another. She knew all along she was Born To Rock, but it is ever so difficult to find the right people. She knocked around from town to town jamming with an autoharp in junkie squats and singing sea shanties on boats and performing in corny undergound plays and eight piece jam bands and open mic nights and all the horrors every wouldbe frontperson is subjected to if their first couple of garage gangs aint superfunded by some showbiz uncle. It’s mind boggling how much rejection she experienced. Most of the competent musicians didn’t understand her, could not appreciate her one of a kind, offbeat style of vocalizing, a wild wailing, usually associated with hardass male singers, such as Bon Scott or Angry Anderson.”They laughed and told me I was TOO DIFFERENT to make it as a rocknroll singer. They said that with my quirky voice and dress and buck teeth I didn’t sing or look like a lead singer should. They were saying success and acceptance comes with conformity. THAT WAS CRAP. ROCKNROLL IS FOR REBELS.” Hear, hear, my dear. Me, too. 

   I was laying in the sick bed last night smiling as I remembered the time some super gifted guitar prodigy who drove an old yellow vintage convertible like a Beach Boy and lived in a haunted mansion, had invited me to audition for his very painstakingly tight, studio musician band at some well to do square’s suburbanite house. They banged into a whizbang perfect Wrecking Crew rendition of that old Monkees song, “Pleasant Valley Sunday” and obviously you don’t call me, if you want Davey Jones, a lead singer’s job is to put his own stamp on it and entertain the people so I let ’em have it, the full bug theatrical, Birthday Party shambolic, lounge singer gone bad, howlingly combatitive, wildeyed rocknroll business, just like Iggy Pop or Jim Morrison would. They were shocked and appalled and kept asking me to do it again but sing normal. You get me for your band if you want somebody with their own voice and vibe and point of view who can command a room and has stories to tell, not if you’re looking for some Ricky Martin/Robin Thicke/Justin Timberlake/Harry Styles note perfect milk n cookies guy to be polite. No, I’m not cutting my hair. No, I don’t care that your friend the wrestler does not like me. No, I don’t care that your wife’s mother’s hairdresser says I’m the devil corrupting the children with too much Aqua Net and Dramarama records, no I’m not here to make desk job people feel proud about voting for Kamala cause it shows how they can’t be racist. It’s always been that same old shit with the gadfly booj peeps, they invite you into their thing, but say you have to change completely. The shredder’s rhythm section were horrified when the sweat started pouring and the makeup started running, my waist length hair was wet and the shirt came off and you know I used to wear a buncha crucifixes and rosaries underneath my shirt and they thought that might be something really bad, and I started improvising beat poetry on the spot I expected them to jam to. They were clearly uncomfortable with the black shiny pleather clad presence of my much beloved, beautiful old bartender/roommate/confidante/soul sista Jessa Belle, who’d accompanied me to the audition and brought a big bottle of booze along for laughs. They were oblivious to the irony of wanting to cover “Pleasant Valley Sunday” while insisting it be properly music school renditioned. They were such scolding, humorless, textbook squares. “Pleasant Valley Sunday”? They WERE the weekend warrior uncool people on the hill, pompously trying to repremand me for not being serious, refusing to “sing normal”. Does anybody tell Rotten that? Lux? Bators? Taime Downe? Billy Hopeless? Bryan Small? Jim Jones? Texacala? “Sing Normal”. That was some tv people shit, and they were supposed to be the big Cobain lovers. They’d never seen punk rock in real life. That town jumped on the Nirvana bandwagon but it was all real new to the sports doofuses. You had one group trying to be Beatles and one group trying to be Pearl Jam, not a lot of real action. There were only a couple of punkish outfits in their circle: a comelately hot rod satanic jugband with many tattoos when Nashville Pussy was the latest thing, and a trust funded Cramps ripoff band with sixties antique fuzz pedals and tube amps and expensive guitars galore, hundreds actually, and very rare and hard to find echo machines and their own recording studio, so they could endlessly churn out garage noise for hipster labels in disco shirts, they’d all applaud for that band in that town, but not for their tunes really cause they had none, they were applauding their money, the rare gear they played badly through. Rich Sees Rich. People blindly, deaf and dumbly, applaud success or accoutrements of succes in those rightwing wealth worshipping sports enclaves. Man fuck those guys, they did not get rocknroll, at all. That prodigy guitarist’s brother was a promising drummer who was smart and decent, rare characteristics in that particular town in the grunge era, but he needed to be accepted by their rich lawyer dad way, way, way more than he needed to rock, he needed to belong with his obedient, mansion dwelling, “Less Than Zero”, business minded classmates, so ya see his picture online now, and he don’t look like nobody from Oasis anymore, he looks like a showbiz shark, sports jacketed Doc McGhee rock manager. Had a similar experience in the recording studio with some locals only fellas who had their one and only exacting familiar process and I was expected to emulate the vocalist of their local band, which is just not what I do. No thanks man. “Sing normal, they said.” They had an exaggerated opinion of their own singing voices-the “normal ” ones. They’d wipe the first three takes instead of mixing ’em together, and in my world, that’s where the magic usually is, all the feeling is embedded in the first or second take. 

   So yeah I take heart from Chrissy’s hardknocks sordid tale, it’s a real hair raising, roller coastering, holy smokes barnstormer, she did hard time in a foreign prison, endured all manner of grisly abuse, so when the usual lazy lackey self proclaimed journalists started shooting off the mandatory questions about how hard it supposedly is to be a beautiful and talented female with a killer band in rock, she’d just sorta chuckle and roll her eyes. She went places you wouldn’t go with a gun. What a powerhouse, all soul, always and ever only about singing it from the heart, she got that–in spite of childhhod forays into choir and ballet, she was just there to deliver the feeling, she was All Feel, and she’s brutally honest and I love that about her, too. One of my alltime favorites. When you’re going through all the hard times, lookin’ for some kinda sense or meaning, taking inventory, contemplating the hard facts of life, giving up on humanity, there are still these half forgotten artists from ancient times, you can read about and listen to who get it, who felt the same way and wern’t just trying to milk some jive hustle and get over and make money, who really seemed sincere and true and good and heartfelt. I love them for all that. The first two Divinyls albums were like AC/DC meets Billy Idol. Chrissy was the unprecedented Wild Card. Real Rocknroll is ALL ABOUT the Wild Card. They got lucky when they recognized the right character to manage them and he jettisoned the first wanker bassplayer who thought he was the cat’s pajamas cause he’d played with Mark in Air Supply, like that was something to be proud of, he fucked over the band on copyrights and a shady publishing deal, that was fucked up. Mark McEntee was ALSO wild, I mean he was like an elegantly pouncing, slashing Malcolm Young or Keith Richards real  instinctive kinda guitarist but he had a Billy Duffy or Steve Stevens like flash and talent, just more understated, he let the song breathe, made room for Chrissie. And let’s just repeat for the record how he flatout always just looked cool as fuck, and moved ever so cat like gracefully, him and his model wife ran a super cool rocknroll boutique that sold threads to Michael Jackson, Kate Moss, Chrissie Hynde, Deborah Harry and Amy Winehouse called Wheels & Dollbaby–if you aint from Australia it’s almost impossible to imagine rock god Mark ever playing in Air Supply!!!? Mark McEntee is one of those rare snow leopard guitarists who are so impossible to find anymore. A unique stylist almost like a Brian James. What an excellent band. Even though she’d done time in every corny cover band and Belgian experimental Hawkwind dervishing hippie collective, when she strted composing intimate original like “Boys In Town”, it took her awhile to summon up the appropriate nerve and audacity to deliver those songs with the inflammatory, take no prisoners, no apologies, storming authority they deserved, so her manager took her to see AC/DC, and she stole Angus’s gimmick, which seemed even more dangerous on a voluptuous female-the schoolgirl persona helped her release her incorrigible, bratty banshee side the world all came to love in the new wave era. They were touring with bands like Simple Minds and the Furs and gaining an audience overnight. First fame’s hard on people. They got ripped off so bad, their publishing was stolen when they were young and naieve and “desperate” as the song goes-at least they signed the dotted line, nowadays, these industry manuvering social vampires got ways of trying to steal your shit without ever paying you a cent and with no signed contract. They just copyright your shit. Fuck you, ha ha, the end. House always wins. The Fix is always in. Don’t kid yourself, sunshine. I think the world is becoming more wicked by the day. Maybe I just feel crummy cause I’m so shockingly sick, I dunno man, it all seems so bleak. I got no trust or faith in people, they’re like demons. Mass hypnotized soldiers of the Nato/Bill Gates/imperialist Status Quo. You can’t talk to the see no evil coincidence theorists. They spend their whole lives in school but never heard of any most basic, well documented, historical facts…except for shit that makes them FEEL GOOD, they are the proud, the many, the virtue signaling, on trend, bumper sticker people, “I VOTED”, they feel scientific cause they watch all that good guys versus badguys copaganda on tv. Dr. Drew and Dr. Phil. They make excuses for coups and wars and censorship and torture and kidnapping, murderous cops, big tech spying, poisoned water, bad medicine, human experimentation. I been social distancing for a real long time. I don’t see that changing much.

“The CIA didn’t kill JFK to replace him with Lyndon Johnson.

The CIA killed JFK to replace American democracy with an unaccountable shadow government that you can’t vote away. HUD says that it would cost $20 billion to end homelessness in America. We are told that that is impossible, yet the government is about to pass a $1.7 trillion spending bill, which includes an ADDITIONAL $44 billion to Ukraine. Our government isn’t just corrupt — it is evil.” (-Primo Radical)

The progression There are no Nazis There are only a few Nazis The Nazis don’t have any real power These aren’t the same kind of Nazis Doesn’t matter if the Nazis are fighting for your country So what, Every country has Nazis The Nazis have been deradicalized now…The former President of Ukraine and German Chancellor Merkel both admitted that the Minsk agreement signed with Russia was only signed to bide time for Ukraine to build their military and they had no intention of honoring it

Our Gov’t is tells us that Russia can’t be trusted…Our ruling class is not as dumb as many think

They cut off Europe’s cheap energy supply and got them to pay our companies 4x more They have weakened Russia, though not as much as they hoped and stolen billions from us to give to their donors. That’s not me saying this, it is the words of the former Ukrainian President and Merkel. American propaganda wins.

Sadly, Ukraine had to be sacrificed…Propaganda working is having Americans look at what is happening to Ukraine and believing this is what winning looks like, when they could have just honored the Minsk agreement and none of this would be happening. Maybe we should be using all these new IRS agents to audit the Pentagon The United States has more people in prison than any country in the world…Is it possible that some of your so called allies telling us about women’s rights, just don’t want black babies born? 

We don’t live in a democracy. There is no Dem vs GOP. Our Gov’t doesn’t care about Ukrainians. Fauci works for Big Pharma. Trump doesn’t care about working class whites. Obama doesn’t care about Black people..We are all just pawns being exploited.” (-Black In The Empire)

You’re Not Actually Helping When You “Support” Protesters In Empire-Targeted Nations (substack.com)

ALL THE LIVELONG DAY

So yeah man sometimes when my grandmother was busy delivering Avon, I’d be babysat by her sister who I adored, my great aunt and she was very poor, lived in a cardboard house right next to the railroad tracks in the bad part of town, we’d count the cars goin’ by, or she’d walk me to the bus stop across from the funeral parlor and we’d take the downtown bus first to the Goodwill where she’d buy me some comic books,16 Magazine or Tiger Beat with like the Monkees or Shaun Cassidy on the cover or some naughty James Bond paperbacks, then we’d go to the dime store downtown where they still had a lunch counter, small pets, a weight and fortune machine and a little cartoon booth and she’d buy me some plastic army men or a yo yo or a slinkie or maybe “Slime”, I loved her alot but much preferred her Veleveeta grilled cheese to her stomach curdling fried Spam on Wonder Bread sandwiches. She fed all the downtown stray dogs in her garage and back then, there was like twenty or thirty of them, they all showed up to mooch a free meal about five thirty, same time her old man was getting off work as a railroad worker. They ate shitfood but she served it to him on a tv tray in his rocking chair and he’d be so beat that he didn’t even bother to take a shower or put on pajams, he’s eat and fall asleep right there in the chair. He wore an old fashioned pinstriped overalls and railman hat. Now may grandparents seemed to kinda look down on them, cause they did not make as much money as they did, and I remember vividly not liking that from a young age. Their daughters inherited some of their classism and obsession with appearances. I saw quite clearly that working on the trains was AT LEAST as taxing as all the middle class men having their long liquid lunches and sitting behind desks with secretaries and bossing people around and doing business on the golf course. So the whole bullshit story about the poor people being loafing, lazy deadbeats who “just don’t apply themsleves”, “who just don’t try”, while the middle class business owners and office people were always supposedly “the hard workers”, even “workaholics”, with the big bootstrapped work ethic earning their golf course membership and scotch and steak business meetings by the swet of their brow seemed not entirely, ya know, the whole picture. My Uncle Tommy worked his ass of everyday, they just didn’t pay him a fair wage, that’s the truth about capitalism from my point of view so when these scumbag elitists and fakes like Lunchbox Biden and the Squad side with the bosses, just like Reagan, against people fighting for sick days, and the latte centrists still defend their pinups, I just can’t talk to them. I had a former friend who kept asking me for my address and it made me uncomfortable. I just don’t trust the nine to fivers anymore, they always got some trick up their sleev, ya know like they only contact you when they feel entitled to another pound of flesh-they are takers not givers and they do not believe in equality-they always think they are superior to you and smarter if they make big money. Sad truth is all they have to offer is empire propaganda, conventional wisdom and official narratives, admonishments about how I failed to do this or that and should have been more conforming, it’s so horribly dismal and disappointing when you arrive at a place in this journey where the people you carried in your heart for most of your life just speak entirely different languages, have entirely different values now, it’s like you’re talking to an uptight, acquisition oriented mother in law rather than a kid you grew up with, they all seem like strangers except with a stranger you might not know what they’re gonna say. Everybody I grew up with became their fuckedup conservative, judgemental, tv lovin’, two car garage, biggest sundeck, suburbanite parents. It’s pretty heartbreaking, really. I got people in my life who might pop up once or twice a year for their own reasons, but as much as it grieved me to finally look at our whole history and admit it, they weren’t never my real friends, more like saboteurs, time wasters, energy stealers, idea appropriators, what the kids call frenemies, ya know it’s true when they say it’s a dog eat dog world. It did not have to be like that-there was a time when it was five friends all together, rather than everybody just out for themselves believing all that bullshit they learned at college about how greed is good and whoever has the biggest house wins. I guess that time is gone. When I knew all those people, they were anti war and anti establishment ya know, they did not believe what the  Max Headroom millionaire man on tv said. Now, instead of being anti war, they’re just anti poor, their world view is just blame the poor people, punish the poor people. They are all exactly like law and order 700 Club Republikkkans, only they vote dutifully for Democrat candidates who vote for Republikkan policies, they’ve all been neo conned by masterful marketing into supporting rich get richer poor fuckoff and die quick policies only now they also have a Ukraine flag and a Rainbow flag, but mostly, they all seem apolitical, okey dokey with whatever the tv sez, and kinda only distrustful or hostile towards poor people. Afraid they’ll catch our povery like the Covid death plague they all still think came to 150 differnt countries in a week’s span from a lone China bat. Nothing to do with gain of function bioweapon research funded by the West. A bat. We got a good friend with family in Peru, while all your brunch bunch co workers spend all their days Thanking Obama, some more, the common man democratically elected, populist president of Peru, Castillo’s been kindnapped by the usual secret police capitalist coups for empire with full backing and support from the DNC. The USA USA will give the coup government weapons and advisors to stomp out the protests just like they did here with Occupy Wall Street, the Baltimore and Ferguson and George Floyd Uprisings, the Water Protectors at Standing Rock and THE INSURRECTION! INSURRECTION! INSURRECTION! at Capital Hill, which I always viewed as a garden variety psy op-cause it was publicised for weeks with vendors and merchandise, it was a lotta Maga cops and rightwing politicians who let the outta state cop and military protestors in the side doors, a window got broke a dumbfuck painted sports fan yelled “Liberty” and tv talked about it 24/7,  for actual years now. Shitlibs they decided they all liked Lyn Cheny now. Female? Check. Hates Trump? Check. Pro war, torture and an Orwellian fascist cashless society microchip police state? Check. I’m obviously not a Trump supporter, but I aint mad at people who don’t believe the dubious election resuts from known liars gathering in public spaces to protest. I don’t think the election counts are legit, either and I say that as a far left kinda person. If you think people really voted in large numbers during the Pandemic for Gropey Joe, you might be mass hypnotized. More people liked Hillary than Gropey. She also didn’t campaign but she did have a base. Nobody likes Gropey Joe except Goldman Sachs, Raytheon, Lockheed Martin and Pfizer. Not really.

TERRY HALL

NOOOOO! Is it just me or are all the cool peopple dropping dead at an accelearating, alarming pace now? Watch that Fun Boy Three vid I’m about to post that Terry co wrote with Jane Wieldlin and tell me how you would even describe that music, it’s just majestic to me, a guy playing congas, some goth chicks on strings, Terry looking as sourpussed and grumpy as Robert Smith all while singing this totally catchy little pop song. I know brainwashed “Amerikkkan Idol” fuckers nowadays who’d say he should not be “allowed” to make all that genius music if he cant sing like Adam Lambert or whoever, or that you’re supposed to be boyband beautiful like Harry Styles, and producers will write all the music and some hacks in the fake music press will write articles about what a genius you are, even and especially if you’re a lapdancing sexbot or whatever you call those guys in tailored clothes and cologne who try to be white Michael Jacksons. I can’t stand any of that manufactured mainstream muzak so it’s painful for me to even access mockingbird media-it all seems like creepy bullshit and lies and cynical old predators trading on/feeding offa dumb model young puppet energy. I don’t like any of that No Doubt or Sublime shit really, to me, the modern day ska sems like a gimmick, a shtick, novelty, but I tend to feel that way about a lotta shit now-all the music just seems so plastic and bought and paid for with no message or meaning, just hokey jokey nonsense-people throwing money around. I guess I did like one Bosstones song, “Where Did You Go”, but any ska I like is usually the old stuff from the late seventies and early eighties that was all still so fresh and innovative and filled with energy and feeling and soul not just quacky doofus class clown Orange County rich kid face making. When the Specials did that big tour with Madness and Selector, ya know the two tone movement had a political agenda, they were socially conscious, post punks, really. Now it just seems like a buncha nerdy fuckin rich kids who iron their clothes all the time and made their moms buy them Vespas, you know what I mean? People with big shoe collections. I remember being exposed to the Colourfield at my friend Morgan Reese’s 11th floor loft on Astor Place in the mid eighties, he was a video editor-filmmaker-nightclub DJ who probably got into movies or adevrtising after I lost contact with him, he was a great guy, a lotta fun, blonde surfer lookin’ cat, but his smile looked like Jim Morrison’s smile. I caused him some conflict when I was a dumb, pain in the ass, selfish and thoughtless, drunken runway kid kinda self obsessed and insensitive to others and just so inconsiderate, that I wish I could make amends for-he got me into so much good music-Joy Division, Love & Rockets, Fra Lippo Lippi. He got me into Eraserhead and Bladerunner. He used to take me to cool places like Danceteria and the Dive. I didn’t really have my look together yet, I was still wearing the dorky John Lennon glasses and had a bad haircut, so he’d spraypaint my clothes silver and I’d get in the nightclubs for free. That’s how NY was in ’85. I’ve got a picture of him eating a bodega salad bar salad salad on the street in a black velvet jacket and an MDC shirt, he was cool as fuck but more importantly, a really, really good person. I owe him alot actually. He put me in some of his imporovised/experimental films  he was making at NYU film school. Anyways yeah digging through his immense record collection was where I got exposed to so much new wave, ska, new music, PIL, all that kinda stuff. Everybody liked “Ghost Town” back in the day and “Too Much Too Young”-even those of us who did not wear fitted suits. I know he had a hard life and contributed a lot, he had a million different projects. I liked all that stuff he did with Bananarama. My favorite thing he did was his version of “Our Lips Are Sealed” which to me still seems so perfectly modern and progressive-what would you even call that kinda music? Amazing. Makes me mad how they never say the truth about why people die anymore. It used to be they only skipped the cause of death in suicides or overdoses. Now it’s all like, “died suddenly after short illness”. Used to be people only died in waves like this in their eighties, or nineties, not in their fucking fifties and sixties. He was great, unique, a real artist. people don’t even seem to know what real art or music is anymore-they just like whatever the Big 5 monopolies tell them to like. I don’t like any of that shit at all. I’m still in absolute disbelief about Eddie Van Halen being dead, Alan Merrill, Andy Fletcher, Ronnie Spector, Betty Davis, Mark Blum, Howard Hesseman, Thich Knat Hahn,  Irene Cara, Chris Bailey, Jerry Lee Lewis, Prince and almost everybody I wish I could still call on the phone. Martin Duffy from Felt and Primal Scream. Like my comrade John Dissed sez, there ain’t no stoppin the droppin’. It is crazee but everybody besides me seems to think it’s okaydokey and just the way of things, the natural order. I’m not cool with death but needless death,  that’s just some diabolical, unacceptable shit. These billionaires who talk all giddy like about depopulating should start with themselves and I got zero space in what remains of my fragile little life for people who think there’s some just or noble cause for these inhuamne and ghastly richman wars, always based on lies, for global empire, that only benefit the war machine-the devil’s chessboard spooks and weapon makers and WEF oil barons. I saw this Robert Downey Jr. documentary about his underground filmmaker dad that was so heartfelt and beautiful. His dad was a creative, eccentric real offbeat humorist character who made underground films way back in the day and liked to do drugs and had a spontaneous sense of humor and a childlike wonder that was ever so endearingly present even on the death bed. It’s called “SR”. Look for it on your click click click channel. Bummed out about Terry Lewis. All my own unfinished business, rekindling relationships with my faraway adult children, getting all these songs of mine properly recorded, they’ve all kinda come to these dead ends. There is no hope left of any worthwhile reunions with ex friends. I wrote some books but the lady who had expressed interest in publishing them has ghosted me. I get a lotta that. I’m a man outta time, I don’t really belong in this age. I think the billionaires and politicians everybody else worships and trusts should go fuck themselves-I think they’re all a buncha liars and depraved mass murderers. If you ask me, we need less people like Elon Musk and Bill Gates and more one-off courgaeous weirdo people like Terry Lewis. (RIP)

CHRISSY AND CHRISSIE

They just don’t make ’em like they used to. I’m sick as a dog as the old Aerosmith song goes, and napping under electric blankets, reading my birthday book about Chrissy Amphlett and thinking about long lost friends and loved ones who’ve gone on to the other side. Summa my precious few enduring amigoes have also been suffering from various illnesses and health problems, sick on the holidays is a bitch. Kid’s also asleep and his mom’s out fetching medical protocol vitamins, tests and supplies. Of course I love Chrissy’s book. She’s a fab writer just as you’d expect. All my brothers n sisters and friends of the revolution, I can only remember being this sick once or twice before, it is not pleasant. Chills and bodyaches remind me of when I lived in that unheated attic for a couple of winters. Brutal. Sick as fuck. Grisly and agaonizing and it makes you frightened. My friend Paul K organized all his songs and archives before he died and even wrote some real classy and characteristically charming farewell note. Hopefully, I’m not gonna die anytime soon but man I feel an impusle to get my affairs in order. One of the nice old ladies who helped raise me, she’s appraoching the end of her life and gathering all her kids around her for Christmas. I am thinking of her with gratitude from afar. This life and death shit’s all a big fucked up mystery to me.

THE ANDY WARHOL DIARIES

This series is totally addictive and entertaining and is awesomely jam packed with so much seventies footage, rare photos, unseen video, home movies, private love letters, and whoever picked the music did a fantastic job! Produced by Maya E Rudolph-MAYA E. RUDOLPH (mayaerudolph.com) not to be confused with my fave flame from PRINCESS, the Prince tribute band who rocks my world, in spite if making crooked mass incarcerators seem likable on behalf of the DNC on SNL. I love that other Maya so much, she’s like one of my only fame crushes besides Susan Sarandon or Chrissie Hynde or Young Sinead before they ruined us both.This series is so fucking epic, you’re gonna love it, believe me. I hope they make some more just like it. Man I started reading books about Warhol when I was a pre teen ya know, and I’d go to the library to read the “Village Voice”. Most of the real exciting stuff happened, of course, in the sixities and seventies, with Lou and Edie and Nico and Gerard, and I sadly missed it, but I’m thoroughly enjoying learning about Warhol’s double secret love life and struggles to remain contemporary in the Reagan 80’s-he even agreed to put Nancy Reagan on the cover of “Interview” as a way of courting favor with the rich Republikkkan women who might commission his portraits. I probably watched the Candy Darling movie about twenty times. This movie humanizes Andy more than any book or film I’ve seen previously. I did not know much about his first serious longterm romantic partner, Jed Jenson, who started off sweeping the factory floors before directing their first flop flick, “BAD” and going on to decorating the houses of the rich and famous like Mick and Jerry Hall. He wanted Andy to stay home and be domestic when Andy’s friends Steve Rubell, Halston, Liza, Bianca, and Victor Hugo were in the fever pitch of Studio 54’s coke spoon in the moon glory daze and indulging in all kinds of fast times, high life, jet set, pre AIDS voyeurism and debauchery in Lower East Side bath houses and on the gay enclave of Fire Island. After two suicide attempts and Andy’s inability to be more affectionate or demonstrative, Jensen moved on and Andy rebounded with a Paramount motion pictures vice president who insisted their love life be kept quiet so it did not adverserly impact his high paying job. Hence the Paramount movies logo making it’s way onto many Warhol canvases, it was code for Jon Gould. In spite of my Edie/Andy/Velvets/Factory Superstars fascination, this is the first I’ve heard of him. Jon Gould actually appeared in that book that ruined a couple years of my life, when my mom put me in a real Waspy country club school: “The Preppie Handbook”. I was all too familiar with some white Mayflower descendent’s ideas about being posh in New England-I hated all that shit-the Harvard rowers, the yacht club, the Muffies, Biffs and Thurston Howell The Thirds, with the sweaters around the neck, the penny loafers and khakis and golf shirts, you’re really talkin’ ’bout everything I reviled, the whole Tommy Hilfiger way of life, so it was interesting to see Andy so desperate to assimilate into that manly, Aspen ski vacation world, but that was his lifelong secret longing-to be beautiful in a Massachusetts boat club sortof way. He became anorexic and started wearing all his ex’s leftover Izod clothes and even started walking runways as a male model, which of course was crazy cause Andy was so NOT a conventionally good looking guy who was gonna somehow pass among the Ivy League Old Money havers-he was a pasty Polish gay immigrant with bad skin, a freak, a voyeur, someone generally perceived as incapable of showing much emotion, which is why people like Sedgwick and Jensen became flummoxed with his remote detatchment. He was always saying he wanted to be a robot. I enjoyed Warhol’s work in the eighties-the magazine, the low budegt cable access tv show where he’d feature Duran Duran, Blondie, John Waters and Divine, Brooke Shields, Marc Almond, and Fab 5 Freddie. Interesting to hear graffiti artists like Futura admitting they sabotoged their own mainstream success somewhat by not wanting to be seen cavorting with gay people. I rather always liked his shows and magazine and collaborations with Basquiat. A girl I lived with knew, or worked for Vincent Fremont, and traveled in the gringhges of the Andy-Basquiat-Haring-Kostabis nightclub circles and also knew the downtown filmmakers, and John Sex Pyramid Club set, so I ended up frequenting summa those big decadent nightclubs as a teenager, accompanying her and sometimes our Nancy Spungeon like roommate Minkie  to openings and museums, parties and after hours spots and performence art spaces, but I was just a kid, fourteen, fifteen, not really old enough to contribute all that much, but I did absorb so many fantastic ideas from that wonderful melting pot cross pollination, when hip hop influenced the art world and punk rock influenced high fashion and everything was being craeted from the ground up, I lived on Rivington Street a couple blocks from CBGB’s or the other way a couple blocks to the ABC NO RIO anarchist compound. The Book: ABC No Rio Dinero — 98 BOWERY: 1969-89 I could watch this Warhol series forever, it’s like you don’t want it to end. It’s so lovingly and compassionately made and takes me back to the eighties, which as you know, was the place where I felt alive, in spite of the rightwing Just Say No/PMRC/Jerry Falwell/Tipper Gore anti rock bullshit and preppie motherfuckers always trying to beat me up for being weird, once I set foot in Lower Manhattan, I knew it aint no sin to be different or to do things your own way, or wear makeup or leather, or reject the false standards and bullshit stories of the ruling class. Andy always struggled with the desire to join the haughty old wasp establishment, he wanted acceptance from the money people, and after he was shot, he retreated into that phony asskiss world with all the old heiresses for a long time. His companion Jed wanted him to be content with the home he made for them and the dogs, but people like disco sleazy Victor Hugo kept luring Andy back to the nighttime world. He was friends with the Lennons and met Steve Jobs at one of Sean’s birthday parties with Keith Haring. I never knew those graffiti artist painter guys but their works and influence were still around when I lived in the Bowery and they still hungout at places like Area, the Tunnel, the World, and Danceteria. His series of paintings “Ladies And Gentlemen” is an interesting topic cause he paid all those drag queens like fifty bucks each to pose for Polaroids then sold the silkscreened canvases for big money. He survived the attempted assassination then croaked from what should have been a routine operation, his brothers sued the hospital, they settled but the hospital admitted no wrong. Now of course in death he is finally embraced by the institution, same with Basquiat and Sprouse and all those eighties forerunners. Some people felt he did not do enough to promote or advance the interests of the gay community during the Aids crisis when all his friends were dropping one by one, but there are political messages and images in the later works if you look. He was raised a Catholic and went to church everyday. Critics always talk about how his philosophy foresaw the disposable instafame internet TikTok culture of did nothing heiresses and plastic surgery and drive through science and black comedians in drag mandates we are drowning in now, but his trashy, spontaneous sensibilities were perfect for the eighties MTV age no matter how many art crtics said he was a vampire past his prime and all that mattered was the soupcans. I used to love his show and also Zaremba’s Happy Hour. Those two programs defintely influenced my own short lived cable access collaboration on Boston’s CCTV, “Welcome To Weird City” in the early nineties. My kid tries to show me the Youtube influencer Tik Tok celebrities of today who get fifteen minute famous for breaking plates or sledge hammering expensive computers for likes and views and ad revenue, the potty mouthed racist puppet shows, or by being abusive to drive through workers or doing unboxings of imported from China bootleg designer hype beat status symbols and I’m just not into that shit at all. By the time Sigue Sigue Sputnik were releasing their crappy single, “$ucce$$”, I was already over the whole get rich overnight bullshit. I worked for some yuppies in love with the whole spraytanned “Lifestyles Of The Rich & Famous Dream” and they were just miserable everyday from ceaselesly chasing that next high dollar paycheck on the backs of the exploited poor. Of course, I still wanted to have a band back then, but empty fame and fortune are not what motivate me, personally. I knew some real asshole famous people and like Phoebe Legere cautioned me long ago, fame is mostly just a commodity rich people purchase for their awful kids in this country. Warhol’s tv show was way more entertaining than these monarch programmed say nothing blow up dolls or assemblyline outrage rappers we got now. Say what you want about video killing the radio star but you know all my eighties bands had great songs. Duran Duran have many great songs. Culture Club, all them- The Fixx, Naked Eyes. I can see the Solid Gold dancers in my mind. I liked Andy Gibb, did you know that guy Rex Harris made glam rock albums?

” I’m gonna occasionally type shit that you’re not allowed to think. Liberals were interested in democracy until it was revealed that the Establishment colluded to make sure Joe Biden was elected. Whether you like, hate, or are indifferent on Musk, Taibbi, or Weiss, the FBI, CIA, Big Tech and media colluding to lie and censor information that could hurt a political candidate is more colluding to interfere in our elections than a Russian troll farm using Buff Bernie memes. Neither wing of the duopoly gives a damn about Black people.

Dems know all they have to do is remind our community of how racist the GOP is and they can ignore us after we put them in power. What makes it worse is they’ve done us the most harm the last few decades. It’s 2022

Is anybody gonna ask themselves how small businesses were forced to shut down during Covid, while big corporations were allowed to continue doing business as usual?The ruling class didn’t care more about us than profit during Covid and they don’t care more about Ukrainians more than profit and maintaining their world dominance now. If you’re Black and realize white supremacy didn’t go away in a couple of generations like they want us to believe, why don’t we realize that there is almost nothing it loves more than Black babies not being born, fathers not being around and belief in capitalist individualism. It’s easy for the US, EU and friends to convince their citizens that Russia is a dictatorship and Putin is an evil villain comic book character in Ukraine for no reason

The problem is that the rest of the world that have been victims of the West knows who the real villains are.” (-Black In The Empire)

PRINCE & PRINCESS

Ya know Prince had some kinda whackadoo politics in the beginning-shit like “America” and “Ronnie Talk To Russia” just aint that deep, really, ya know, but by the time his social justice instincts started kickin’ in, he was going on Tavis Smiley and talkin’ about eugenics and fluoride and geoengineering and barium and shit and writing stuff like “When Will We Be Paid” and “Baltimore” and paying bail for activists incarcerated for protesting against racist cops routinely murdering unarmed people, predominantly people of color. After putting some empty slogans on magazine covers for a couple of years and making sellouts of color more visible, kkkops still kill three Murkkkans a day, nothing changed under Biden, just lik he promised the One Percent. It bummed me out when super talented vixen diva sexbomb comedienne and soul singer Maya did some SNL propaganda mischaracterizing socialist democracy leaders as Banana Republic bad guys, while also making Kamala Harris, the police state operative who wanted to jail black parents for having truant teenagers and kept people locked up as long as possible for corporate profits from forced labor, Maya made her seem like some lovable downhome mama. So yeah, I guess I’m way, way, way to the left of Maya but still love, love, love her impassioned homages to His Purple Badness. When ya get the blues, try waching some PRINCESS performances on youtube. That shit’s the bomb. Maya is way too sexy for those corporate pig oppressors of the soldout capitalist DNC, but that’s just how I feel about her. She got so much soul and personality and it’s no surprise she’s a great vocalist being Minnie Ripperton’s kid I guess, but man oh man she’s a smokin’ hot sultry siren. What a bombshell, she blows my mind. God bless her. Dick Gregory said they killed Prince. Maya’s PRINCESS band are so good, that even the Revolution and D’Angelo jam with ’em. They really bring it .

How Do Pro-Russian Ukrainians See the War? – YouTube

“I care about my community and just because the Liberals have successfully brainwashed us into believing in things that are detrimental to our society and our ability to rise up from the bottom of the economic ladder doesn’t mean I’m gonna shut up to fit in to the Left or anywhereA Progressive is just somebody with their noses up the Squad and Bernie Sander’s butt, that is gonna vote democrat no matter what. If Ukraine is a sovereign country, how did Biden fire their prosecutor, how did Nuland pick their Gov’t, and how is the United States deciding their military strategy? As long as they are Ukrainians willing to die for this proxy war against Russia, the US will steal our money to fund it. Our propaganda machine will not remind us that our Gov’t will spend about $100 billion of our dollars on this war that could have helped our citizens and have accomplished nothing that they said they would. If you buy a Trump NFT you are just as gullible as a person that is still giving money to any of these current politicians. If you don’t think the US is the Master of Propaganda, consider the fact that Americans think they live in a democracy. Fauci is an admitted liar and the Azov are admitted Nazi, but many Americans still insist on pretending this is not true anyway. Fauci wasn’t a scientist working for the American people he was a salesman working for Big Pharma

#FauciFiles. After Western media saying that this war matters because it affects people with blonde hair and blue eyes, calling the Global South a jungle and now the VP of the EU saying that Africans probably don’t even know who Putin is, I think we have an idea of how many in the West think.

The people in Africa know exactly who Putin is and they also know who the leaders of the West are, and that’s why they wouldn’t come at and support NATO. If you haven’t figured out that the Squad and Bernie played you yet, don’t make fun of the people buying Trump’s NFT. Zionism is not a religion It is a political movement that gives an excuse to steal land, property and create an apartheid State. When is our Gov’t gonna bring democracy to the United States? Zelensky banned his political opponents and an entire religion in his democracy.

The most courageous newscast in 60 years. The CIA’s murder of my uncle was a successful coup d’état from which are democracy has never recovered.” (-Robert F. Kennedy Jr.)

“”If intervening to ensure the continued mass starvation of children and mass military slaughter of civilians is not evil, then nothing is evil. It’s actually hard to think of anything more evil.” (-Caitlin Johnstone on Biden’s support of Saudi’s genocidal slaughter of Yemen)

The US government has approved at least $51.4 billion in military aid for Ukraine since the last week of February

That’s roughly $185 million PER DAY on average ” (-Ben Norton)

“Remember when Obama, Ya’all’s Forever Prez, looked the other way while mercenaries used chemical weapons and rubber bullets and firehoses on the Standing Rock Water Protectors protesting leaky pipelines being built through their lands? Remember when he and Rahm helped coordinate the national crackdown of the Occupy Wall Street movement and all that footage you saw of cops beating chicks for protesting the swells in the towers? Remember when he provided cover for BP in the Gulf by pretending to swim in the water on family vaca but letting mercenaries prohibit media from visiting the beach? Remember when he fake drank Flint water to help with the coverup and they never held any of the government co conspirators accountable or fixed the water with all their access to money and influence? Remember when all those iconic Ferguson and Baltimore rowday activists died young under some shady circumstances? Burntout Recluse Remembers.” (-Midnight Moses)

Bernie Sanders withdraws war powers resolution on Yemen. Why? Because his boss Biden told him to and because he’s a sheepdog. Rest in Power Bruce Dixon!” (-Margaret Kimberley)

Instead of chasing child sex predators or terrorists, the FBI has agents — lots of them — analyzing and mass-flagging social media posts. Not as part of any criminal investigation, but as a permanent, end-in-itself surveillance operation. People should not be okay with this.” (-Matt Taibbi)

VANITY & APPOLONIA

Ya know I’m reading a book about the Divinyls and still having a hard time coming to grips with the fact that Chrissy Amphlett one of the greatest frontwomen of all time is no more, and neither is Vanity. Whoa. Ya know? Those were the hottest sexbombs of my generation, the epitomoe of youthful beauty and desire, how can they be gone? I had posters of them and Apollonia in my room growing up, I even loved Susan. And Corvette from Mary Jane Girls! It’s all too fleeting here, just a blip and then we’re gone. So many of my friends are gone on to the invisible juke joint beyond the clouds and even Prince, how is that shit even possible? Crazy! As David Lee Roth says, “sprinkle my ashes over the eighties!” Apolonia was dating Roth during the making of “Purple Rain” and says Prince started doing the splits off the back of the stage cause he was a little jealous of Van Halen’s success. Vanity dated Prince, Billy Idol, and Nikki Sixx before deciding she was too fuckedup from all the drugs and became a born again evangelical minister. I miss ’em all, they were such big parts of my life for all these decades. I was watching Dexy’s and Big Country the other day and my wife was saying I’ve kind of idealized that time somehow, she could be right. Laur’s band, eighties synth influenced band Vague Scare remind me so much of when me and my dead friend Jaysin B used to play around with our cheap Casio keyboards in his room and makeup songs about these two girls we loved in our fake Dave Gahan voices, only we were no good yet, we were just goofing with cheap drum programs and my cheeseball pre teen poetry, and Vague Scare are amazingly fabulous, we still had that same heart for it, were coming from that same place. For awhile when we were lads I thought we’d become like Suicide or Soft Cell, but he got sucked in to the smalltown torture circuit and I fled and fled, and kept on moving. I was also heavily immersed in Prince back then who was actually still very New Wave! Same as Dez and Andre! We saw ourselves as Rude Boys, too.

“We know our politicians are corrupt, but we somehow let them convince us to spend billions of our dollars that we cannot track that we know are going to their donors and to a country consistently rated the most corrupt in Europe. Stop letting Bernie and the Squad play you, there is no Left movement in the Democratic Party, and if they ever wanted to help the working class, they learned quickly that they better get in line, just like Pelosi said they would on 60 minutes a few years ago. Our citizens being conditioned into to believing in American exceptionalism trumps all ideologies, social beliefs, political leanings and is the reason why it is so easy for the ruling class to con us into being involved in or starting these wars. Our ruling class has conditioned us to hate Russia, China or both and convince us that they are a threat to us militarily, our make believe democracy or the blame for our falling standard of living

Not because it is true, but because they pose a threat to our Oligarch’s hegemony. I used to do what I was told and write off things our Gov’t said were conspiracy theories, until the conspiracy theories kept winding up being the truth. There is nothing that an Establishment journalist hates more than journalism. The Twitter files show how the Establishment interfered with our election, and the people that keep talking about saving our democracy are ignoring it or spinning it like it’s just about Hunter smoking crack. Freedom of Speech counts for people you don’t like or agree with. Remember when they used to tell us that exposing George Soros was antisemitic? Remember that we were told that Russia would be pushed out of Ukraine, would lose Crimea, be sent back to the Stone Age, the ruble would be turned to rubble, their military would be so devastated that they wouldn’t be able to fight another war, and Putin would be removed. Our Gov’t lied us into okaying involvement in another one of their wars, are stealing billions of dollars from us right in front of our faces and getting most of our citizens to attack the people trying to tell them the truth. I think a big problem is that some people don’t realize that there is a difference between being a Progressive and being a Leftist.

I’ll admit that these terms are new to me, but from what I see a Progressive will always vote Dem and believe in American Exceptionalism. Reminder @cmkshama

“This FBI response is disingenuous on multiple fronts. None of this expains flagging the silly jokes of ordinary Americans with low follower counts. Also, they are clearly not doing this in service of investigating crime.

If you cannot handle any criticism of your favorite politician or political party then you don’t belong to a political party. You belong to a cult. We don’t just need a new political party in the United States. We need a new system that is built around community, sustainability, and peace to replace this old decaying system that is built around capital, exploitation, and war. Nancy Pelosi has used our government for over 3 decades to enrich herself and her corporate donors, yet Democrats still champion her as a “progressive” leader. She embodies the rot and corruption that is the Democrat party. 174 Democrats and 176 Republicans just came together to pass an $858 billion war budget for 2023, which is the biggest in history. If you haven’t figured out that both parties exist to preserve our decrepit capitalist and imperialist system then you’re not paying attention. BILLS ARE NAMED TO DECEIVE YOU:

But we are supposed to believe that the Collective West, now led by the United States, has Ukraine’s best interests in mind? Laughable is an understatement. American politicians will break a strike for one section of workers then pose as if they support a strike for another. It’s all a con to keep things just the way they are.” (Danny Haiphong)

“Extraordinary hypocrisy, revealing blatant corruption given past accusations of violence toward journalists who covered issues she campaigned on yet failed to act on once elected.” (-John Dissed on the latest round of empty, meaningless, performative, sellout poser AOC “justice tweets”)

“Congress, the FBI, and Citizens must remember:

The FBI has no authority except for that which Congress grants it. Congress cannot endow the FBI with powers not authorized by the Constitution. No FBI activity can be beyond the oversight of Congress which answers to Citizens.” (-Thomas Massie)

Perhaps billionaires, bougie tech moderators, the corporate media, Israel-supporters, and the intelligence community could all stop trying to forcibly prevent the voicing of beliefs by the citizenry? Maybe we could just have an open, honest exchange of ideas between equals?” (-Primo Radical)
THERE AIN’T NO FREE PRESS AND THIS AIN’T NO DEMOCRACY, ALMOST SEEMS LIKE THE SUPER RICH WANT TO KILL OFF ALL US PEASANTS AND THEIR GATEKEPING MIDDLE MANAGERS ARE HAPPY TO SUPPORT THAT AGENDA FOR SOME PRIVILEGES.

“The overarching lesson from 2022 is:

The United States government, the corporate media, and the “misinformation” experts at large social media companies are all working very hard, all day long, to deceive you. “It’s a private company!” Except the FBI was paying them millions in taxpayer money to comply with their “suggestions.” The term “conspiracy theorist” was invented by the CIA to discredit early claims that the CIA assassinated JFK. Given that those theories have now been proven true — like dozens of other theories about government corruption — maybe we need to revisit the stigma around that term.” (-Primo Radical)

Zelensky is a NATO puppet. NATO puppets aren’t heroes. They’re accomplices to war crimes.” (-Danny Haiphong)

Ryan Roxie makes guest appearance on new Torpedohead video “All Those Wasted Years”

Rock n’ roll power trio Torpedohead kick off the new year with the brand new single All Those Wasted Years. Featuring Ryan Roxie (Alice Cooper) on guitar and Michael Butler (Rock and Roll Geekshow) on add. vox. The video showcases the band performing in front of a one shot angle enviroment in a vinyl record store delivering a stompin’ rock n’ roll anthem with a sticky chorus in classic Torpedohead style.

The new single “All Those Wasted Years is available on all music download and streaming services January 26 !

Combining a riff oriented hard edged sound with melodic supercatchy choruses and fast and furious punk n’ roll while transforming this into their own modern rock sound, Germany’s power trio Torpedohead lives the imagination of a 70s stadium rock n’ roll tape coming through a trashy 90s stereo, digitally remastered today for speeding down the autobahn !

“Stealing money from tax payers to make the greedy weapons industry richer and the United States more unstable and less safe. This money belongs serving the needs of the people not destroying the planet. #WarIsNotGreen The #Costofwar is killing all of us.” (-Jodie Evans)

“This ridiculous Pentagon budget passing proves again that the ruling class does not have the same interests as the people. Their goal is to enrich themselves and their friends at Lockheed Martin and Raytheon at the expense of the people. 550,000+ unhoused people in the U.S. 1 in 10 adults in “significant” medical debt $195 billion in medical debt held by individuals 16.9 % child poverty rate and our members of Congress vote to send our money to the military? We deserve so much better than this. While constituents live paycheck to paycheck and drown in debt, Congress will award the Pentagon $858 billion, over half of which will go to private companies who profit from the war economy. Now, as the US heads towards a full-scale war with Russia and seeks another with China, it’s important we remember: 

War will not solve our problems nor our conflicts. It destroys communities, ecosystems, and societies for generations. Invest in the people, not in war!” (-CODE PINK)

SIOUXSIE & THE BANSHEES

Nowadays they’ve been hiding the Real Stuff for so long and elevating Fake Garbage, that almost anytime somebody says something about goth, punk, performace art, dance music, style, nightclub subcultures, glamous, originality, any of it, shit media immediately references awful shite like Miley Cyrus, Katie Perry, Gaga, Pink, or McDonna. People seem to have forgotten how important and ubiquitous Siouxsie was in my generation, she was everywhere, all my friends had her t shirts, posters, albums, cassettes, and postcards on the fridge, she was probably every bit as big as Depeche Mode, The Cure, or the Smiths, the cruddy Sunday night faux niteclub we hung out at in Indiana played something by her probably every fifth song. Remember all those 12 inch dance remix singles? So yeah she’s been a recluse for quite some time now and can you really blame her? Everything sucks so much ass in this modern Musk-Bezos-Gates world, who would even wanna play for those dumbass, festival goin’ brainwashed motherfuckers? I guess if “working class symapthizer” Springsteen can charge five grand a ticket to hear his old man Orbison impressions and hard luck tales about growing up poor in the fifties some more, she deserves to make some money after all that fearlessly provocative trailblazing she did that everybody else imitated. So yeah her Glorious Return is exciting news for all us basement dwellers and night time people. I hope she makes new music with the Banshees.

PETER MURPHY

Ya know that corporate magaiznes like Rolling Stone and Spin are weapons now, just full of falsehood fabrications and manufactured culture, assemblyline rich people bullshit. Those hack festival goers are paid big bucks to talk about Kanye and Elon Musk and fucking all those absolutely banal and inspid monarch programmed Dizney slut puppets all day, while ignoring the Great and authentic artists who are still fully alive and still making crucial works of heavy genius and long lasting resonance. Like Peter Murphy, he’s still so vital even if you don’t see him on 120 Minutes, or in the twenty dollar fucking glossy magazines anymore. His works are always filled with vibrant emotion and contemplative prose, and onstage he still rocks like a real live wire, even with the beard. You just have to dig a little bit deeper to look for the real rocknrollers. He’s the Lion of the gothic tradition, as important to some of us as Bowie or Iggy, artistically way above most of the shit we see getting hyped nowadays. The twisted propaganda misinfotainment industry that runs all the media for the One Percent Davos billionaires agendas will have you believe like HARRY STYLES is the new Bowie, I mean he aint even the new David Cassidy, ya know? The so called mainstream has never sucked so bad, it’s all garbage, lies, and glorifying cannibalism, but people with Amazon ready income streams continue cheerfully consuming the corporate bullshit like it’s real and normal and not all fake headlines about how China protests are those sweat shop working people asking to be even more enslaved by capitalist shareholders-that aint what’s happening-those protests are the people saying they refuse to submit to the Fauchi clampdowns and mandates and big pharma protocols, this same EXACT phrama sponsored Big Media .promoted those same protocols and mandates non stop for years in the land of the gullible and home of the big tech panopticon fascists. If you wanna get wise to what’s really happening I suggest you read Whitney Webb and Max Blumenthal regularly. Gray Zone and Unlimited Hangout. Rob Sheffield is paid big money to tell you Britney Spears and Kanye West are good but I’ll still be here redirecting you towards credible indie media sources and Real Singers like Peter Murphy as long as I’m around. I turn 53 tomorrow. Hope I don’t “die suddenly”, like so many of my fifty something friends nobody wants to talk about.

“Please don’t ever claim that Bernie is a radical. Bruce Dixon got it right he is nothing more than a sheepdog for democrats along with the squad.” (-Ajamu Baraka)

“He’s just a water boy to a pro-wall st. anti-worker, pro-war party. What a disappointment.” (-Jimmy Dore)

“Saying a US politician is bad on foreign policy but good on domestic policy is like saying a serial killer was nice to his family. It’s like, okay, who gives a fuck? They’re mass murderers and you should hate them.” (-Caitlin Johnstone)

“The biggest gangster in the world is the US government. The biggest scammer in the world is the US economy. The biggest liar in the world is the US mainstream media.” (-Danny Haiphong)

“Over 55% of the union members rejected the contract that denied them paid sick leave. The Squad voted yes on that very contract. That makes the Squad strike breakers. Workers can’t rely on Democrats. We only win if we build fighting movements, including militant strike actions.” (-Sonja Ponath)

“”This is just stunningly dishonest…Hundreds of thousands of workers who understand what has happened are calling out the betrayal of the squad & the Dem Party & pres Biden, you have commentators…saying that if you agree then you are actually sneering at workers..” (-Brihana Joy Gray)

“That’s why it’s important to pay attention to narratives — who adopts them, how they are reshaped & how “influencers” use them to destroy movements from the inside.

The anti-war movement died when it embraced Obama. The same thing happened to the remnants of Occupy with Sanders.” (-Primo Radical)

“Shitlibs who screamed Elon was “fascist” cuz he wouldn’t ban people they hate R now saying he’s fascist for banning people they like. Weird how they were ok banning the leading doctors & scientists in their field 4 challenging status quo on Covid but hack journos need protection” (-Jimmy Dore)

“Elon Musk using his control of Twitter to enact petty personal vendettas is a good illustration of why the rich shouldn’t run things.FYI if you think Bill Gates, George Soros or Pierre Omidyar are any better than Elon Musk it’s because you’re a dopey shitlib. Elon Musk could live stream himself giving the FBI director a deep throat blowjob to completion, stand up, wipe his chin, look right in the camera and say “I gave him a blowjob because I love the deep state so much,” and Musk simps would still say he’s fighting the deep state. It says so much about the power of the propaganda machine of the US-centralized empire that people not only believe the Official Lines, and they not only parrot the Official Lines, but they actively condemn anyone who calls the Official Lines into question.” (~ Caitlin Johnstone)

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari says weapons flowing into Ukraine are showing up now in the Lake Chad region 

In other words, US military aid – and American tax dollars – are benefitting warlords from Azov to Boko Haram” (-Max Blumenthal)

“”Investigators noted that the Army’s database claimed that service officials reviewed facilities in the years 0012, 1776, 2201 and 3013.” …So the Pentagon claims to have inspected buildings they can’t find, filled with weapons they’ve lost, in years that haven’t happened yet. The Pentagon LITERALLY loses buildings, planes, guns, & missiles. Don’t ask how one loses a building, but they somehow manage it. But it gets worse. Sometimes they don’t even know what YEAR they’re in. “16,000 records that might reveal either the source or the destination of some of that [trillions] had been ‘removed’.” So if this were not a crime, then why cover up the paper trail? In this latest audit failure – “What they found were several new weaknesses in how DOD accounted for its assets, [including] 2.9 million personnel; equipment &weapons including 19,700 aircraft… & physical items including buildings, roads & fences on 4,860 sites worldwide.” To put $21 Trillion into perspective, if you earned $100,000 every year (after taxes) for 70 years, you’d have to live that same life 3 MILLION times to get to 21 Trillion. Forbes & The Nation were some of the few outlets to cover the scandal & they made it clear it was not just discrepancies. “According to gov records & interviews with DoD officials, congressional sources, & independent experts” this was & is fraud. The Pentagon avoided federally mandated audits for 25 years, but that didn’t stop the truth from coming out that there had been over $21 TRILLION of unaccounted-for financial adjustments over 17 years. If you ran a market, or a shoe store, or a daycare & you couldn’t account for HALF your inventory, you’d quickly be arrested. Yet the Pentagon does just that & it’s met with a yawn by the ruling elite & the media. But this is worse than just negligence.” (-Lee Camp)

“18 months later the Peruvian Oligarchy drove Pedro Castillo into prison, preventing him from entering the Mexican Embassy for asylum. But just like they never expected Castillo to become President they also never expected thousands of people on the streets demanding his freedom! Thousands of people keep flowing into Lima to protest the overthrow of Pedro Castillo. The people of Peru insist on overturning the 1993 constitution written in blood by the Fujimori Regime and that Castillo hoped to replace through a constituent assembly. The situation in Peru is intensifying after the coup against Pedro Castillo. Protests & roadblocks continue to grow across the country & in the capital Lima. These are already having effect. Dina Boluarte, head of the coup govt, has even slipped having to call for early elections. Today is the 7th day of protests in Peru. There are now major roadblocks across Peru. The scale of the protests continue to grow despite 7 people, mostly underage, being killed by police. The coup govt. greatly underestimated that people would fight back & defend Castillo.” (-Manolo De Los Santos on CIA coup in Peru)

It is terrifying how quickly they’ve all regressed, defaulted, forgotten, missed the meeting, been reindoctrinated back into the Bush/Cheney/Obama/Toby Keith patriotism world from which they came. This is paricularly appalling coming from ex punks and mean former liberals who we now refer to mostly as Gotmines or Shitlibs. You know the people who used to have all the Save The Whales signage and saw U2 concerts and liked Will Smith and Chelle Obama to prove how they were “Not racist”TM, and cried during those commercials for pets with that Sarah McLaughlin angels song, or “Everybody Hurts” by REM. These same folks now are in lockstep with anything Bill Gates, Gropey Joe, or Klaus Schwab order of them. It is truly some “THEY LIVE!” or “Twilight Zone” or “V For Vendetta” or “Matrix” like shit. Beyond Orwellian, just crazy. I sent some antiwar shit to a former companion and they wrote me back some crazy belligerent pro war gung ho bootcamp bullshit about how that’s just how it is now, Bitcoin and Bezos and obeying the transhumanist Harari twerp for science and war is good. I can’t fuckin’ believe how malleable everyone has become. No one in the Squad or Sanders fight for any real leftist value anymore, ever, at all.

WTF? I know I stand alone here, but I’m still all like, power to the people for real, not just as some podcast advertisement. Revolution. Rocknroll. ALL POWER TO THE PEOPLE. Now more than ever. They all pretend hated Reagan back in their long forgotten adolescence or college slumming phases but Obama and DOUBLE DOWN DOCTOR DOCTOR JILL BIDEN made ’em all just love alla Reagan’s policies. They pledge alliegence to The Man. Or Wokey Whoa-Man. Whatever, man. Meanwhile the Real Anti War Community is spied on, hassled, harrassed, disrupted, censored, slandered and demonetized. Everybody is getting the Cointelpro treatment while they yuppies holding their I-phones in one hand and channel changer in the other just keep repeating how we should all just be more obedient to the rich people above us, meaning themselves, of course. Everybody from Chris Hedges to Abby Martin. Medea Benjamin and Ray McGovern are censored and shadowbanned. Anti-imperialist and all pro freedom voices have been purged by the spooks from both legacy media and repleced with actual spies, or cenosred by the billionaire techlords on social media, but the Hillarybot Squad worshippers don’t see a danger with Assange and Hale being lockedup or Hastings  and Rich and Wellstone and Dr. David Kelly dying mysteriously. Just okeydokey whatever Hillary wants. And her Powwow Chow Pocahontos Pal and fellow eager beaver Republikkkan Gal Senator Millionaire Liz Warren. I can’t believe middle class people look to Condoleeza Rice, Hillary or Pelosi for advice about anything-they are all known crooks, far rightwing liars and war criminals. Lyn Cheney’s the devil’s daughter-don’t tell me nothing about Ivanka if you like Lyn Cheney. Bernie’s a big sellout coward and a disappointment, but I highly doubt he’s a sexist, but the Gender divide is all these undercover Republikkan, fake as fuck, pro war, Bloomberg Wall Street Dems have to run on, madeup divisions, so they continue to smear Sanders, and he pitifully continues to capitualte to the deep state oligarchy. So sad. Sanders was the only member of congress who refused to stand and applaud their CIA puppet they tried to install in Venezeula-all the rest of these jetset Pelosis and Met Gala starlets are all for coups of socialist democracies, that is NOT DEMOCRATIC by any actual definition-these hacks and mannakins and empty suits won’t even fight for sick days or Julian Assange. You brunchers who enable them kinda suck. Bill Gates is not your special sweater science cuddlybear.

DREAM ACADEMY

When you were young did you ever love somebody? I remember buying the 12 inch single and a silver book of Hendriz poetry when I was 14-ish from It’s Only Rocknroll on 8th Street, walkin’ ’round in the snow with the Walkman on, my main two cassettes that year were the Cult and Thompson Twins. I was in love with a girl and this music made me think of her, but I had to leave that smalltown where she lived and fled to NYC where a couple of older broads had taken me in. It’s funny how music and memories swirl together so deeply that even a certain time of year or temperature drop can bring all that stuff straight back to life.

the dream academy – edge of forever – YouTube now that you’re older…?

This would come on the radio when I was in juvenile corrections. Dream Academy – “The Love Parade” (Official Music Video) – YouTube

It used to drive my hardcore punk and dude-metal Scorpions bros crazy that I loved this band. My Randy Rhoades shredder, mulleted headbanger guitar hero, Dekan used to dismissively call me, “The Flower Power Popster”. I still love the Dream Academy. “This is dedicated to the one I love…” 

“it’ll go on forever…”

Dream Academy – Love – YouTube

“When you were young

Did you ever fall down
Graze your knee
And want to run to someone
‘Cause now that you’re older
I’ve been falling down

I want to run to someone
But there’s nobody around…”

It was right around that same time I discovered “Hunky Dory”, Inxs, the Fleshtones via the MTV IRS CUTTING EDGE HAPPY HOUR, Lords Of The New Church, Divinyls, Billy Idol and the Cult. I stupidly went back to that loathsome hellhole of a town but after what I learned and experienced in Lower Manhattan, I was never the same again and I started fighting back, believing in myself, kicking against the pricks.

These rowdy punk soul sixties influenced R&B all night motherfuckers along with Animal House/Blues Brothers and Van Halen and the Time, kinda taught us boisterous black sheep how to really get down. We were from that kinda tradition rather than the mopey grunge buzzkillers that bought up all the stages who followed us.

SO TRUE ABOUT STUART ADAMSON BEING THE BEST

I will admit, as much of a radical rabble rouser as I’m accused of being, sometimes, summa the Great Old Bands can be a little too one note Billy Bragg preachy for me. I like a whole symphony of ideas, ya know what I’m sayin’? Like what made the Stones, and the Clash and even Hanoi Rocks so great was their diversity-they could play tear in your beer old truckstop country, or ska, or disco, or angry protest music, or freaky psychedelic, or speed warped highway songs and still have that continuity, their own sound, that identifiable stamp as a band, so yeah, summa the big sky bands from the eighties that U2 kinda did a more watered down and commercialized version of could get a little bit too single mindedly focused on some miner’s strike or something-the war in the Falklands, but if all Stuart ever wrote was “Big Country”, he’d still be among the greats in my book. The Skids were also anthemic. Mike Peters credits Stuart for being his a-ha lightning bolt moment, immediate predecessor. That’s a pretty bold thing to admit. In Murkkka, people don’t even own up to having influences-they’re all so W Bush unapologetic,and dummy sports popular vote competitive, ALL THE CLOWNISH PLAY ACTORS LIKE TO STRUT AROUND LIKE THEY ARE BO DIDDLEY ORIGINATORS NOT COPYCAT COME LATELYS SPENDING THE INHERITANCE.Staurt Adamson, now that guy was a pathfinder, a trailblazer, a sing from his heart guy. I was already bored with the xerox-rock, way back in the early nineties with all those Orange County bands in “Maximum Rocknroll” just unimaginatively regurgitating dumbed down, suburbanized, mama money, allowance punk, silver visor from Spencer Gifts in the mall versions of  the Clash or Ramones til doomsday, which, in my opinion, was when dorks like Robbie Thomas and Dave Grohl came on the scene. Doomsday. Turned everything into a class clown joke. The WEF are depopulating the third world and want to microchip enslave whoever survives their dumb wars. Schwab was Kissinger’s protegee but even more entitled and empowered. You should probably do the opposite of whatever he tells you to do. He is  not the emperor. Or at least he shouldn’t be. Fight the NWO.

RICK SPRINGFIELD

In my early twenties I got his greatest hits and realized what a formidable songwriter the guy was. When I first got out of detention hall, I had hoped to rekindle a little love I’d had with a beautiful girl a couple years before but she’d sadly moved on. His song, “State Of The Heart” was a 45 I listened to over and over again while me and Tom and Joey and Fred drank many 12 packs, until my older pal, Dan Yorksie who was running a chop shop bicycle operation outta my basement broke it against the cement wall and got me to set fire to the Polaroid I took of that girl on the first night we met. It only burned even more permenently into my memory. It felt exactly like “Pretty In Pink” as I carried her memory in my heart for years. She went with some trendy soccer star who had the nice clothes, the nice smile, the car, blue eyes, popular. I was Duckie, he was Blaine. Now I’m Harry Dean without a fuckin’ pack of smokes.

A FAVE BAND ON FAVE TV SHOW:

I don’t want some halfassed My Chemical Romance Hot Topic Emo Version and I’ve lost so much of my once proud shag that I just don’t think I have enough left to really adequately achieve the old fashioned Aqua Netted Johnny Thunders-Alarm-Nikki Sixx-Steve Stevens oversized, razorcut jetboy mane I had when Mickey Mac sent a black limousine to retrieve me and my scuzzy, mohawked old guitar player for our high school graduation, well her graduation anyways-they chased me outta that school years prior. I think I got kicked outta six schools and quit two or three, school was not for me. . I sat in between a girl named Regina, whose uncle had kicked me out of the downtown school, she was all cute and Bambi eyed in a white Mary Ann dress and then, there She appeared in a burst of blinding white light–that one true innocent teenage love of mine who attended a Catholic school that the volleyball coach had me expelled from for having No Doze caffeine pills and for wasting their expensive glittery Thunderbirds stickers you were supposed to sell to some rich relative for $500 by just sticking mine on my school desk and locker, she had shown up also, in all her brightly beaming Brigitte Bardot black glasses splendor, but not for me, she had only shown up to give a graduation card to the popular kid she ditched me for while I was in detention hall on my way back to her, so that was honestly a bit of a jab to the deslusional wishful thinking little boy heart. She went her way that day but I got to see her smile. Whoa he was something else back then. I mighta mentioned her in a song. 

That night, while I was in her Poison postered bedroom makin’ my moves on the also exquisitely beautiful Mickey Mac, she had just been dating Bobby Doll, so that was mostly what she wanted to talk about: Poison. Or her gigantic dogs. Meanwhile, her mom was getting my surly guitarist wasted with big bottles in the kitchen and her mom’s dubious boyfriend was asking him if he was up for a gas station robbery or something like that. I guess he saw the nosering and combat boots and black leather jacket and ripped jeans and Max’s Kansas City or GBH t shirt and assumed my guy was an armed robber, rather than a future academic glass artisan. My life’s been a tragiccomedy in that way. Anyhow, yeah, like I was telling my comrade Neen, the Alarm were the prototype of bighaired glammy bandido, desert rebel, Zapatista outlaw gang that first inspired me to recruit my own black flag drunken pirate army. It was pre internet, so we did not know how many other bands were already doing all the same shit as us, in the grebo movement over in the UK, so we thought we were way cooler and more edgy and innovative than we actually were, but for 1986 in a smallish conservative tankplant town, a regular hotspot on the crack highway in between Dayton and Toledo and Detroit, we were radical as all fuck, there. Hell In Fishnets & Blue Eyeshadow! The local evangelical tv station even did a whole anti rock epidode and brought in an outta state PMRC crusader to warn all my other girlfriend’s mothers about the dangers of Aqua Net and eyeliner and all the strange goings-on at that chipped yellow painted, rain faded, long neglected farmhouse on the outskirts of town across from the old K Mart. “They had Eastern tapestries and Christmas lights all year round! Motorcycles in the yard and a Super Nova spraypainted green! A pale and scrawny pasty guy in scarves! Many booze bottles on the old piano! ” Just greasy kids really, drinking beer, playing covers. Wearing all the things that nobody wears.You know that Spencer P. Jones song, “You’ve Peaked”? Some peopel say I peaked early, I say I’m ready for primetime.

DID I EVER TELL YA ABOUT THAT TIME I WAS HUDDLED IN THE COLD SLEET AT THE BACKSTAGE DOOR IN DETROIT AT A BRITNEY FOX SHOW JUST TRYING TO GET IN TO LOOK FOR MY OLDER NOIR LEATHER BLONDE BOMBSHELL MAKEUP ARTIST GIRLFRIEND & THOSE FOUR BEWIGGED CINDERELLA WANNABES GOT OFF THE BUS & WALKED RIGHT BY ME LIKE THEY NEVER HEARD “JUKEBOX HERO”? 

I can really enjoy repeat listens to “GYPSY ROAD” in a certain mood, at least partially because it brings back so many good memories of all night laughing with my famous celebrity DJ/radio programmer friend way back before he started making the big bucks, when he still lived in a dumpy get high trailer with a metalhead guitarist and a couple of big stinky dogs named Glenn and KK, but you know more than a few Cinderella songs in a row kinda can grate on my nerves, I like ’em, don’t get me wrong, but only for about maybe four songs tops then I need a break from all the screeching. I always kinda thought Britney Fox were like Cinderella wannabes. Every band who ever made it to “Headbanger’s Ball” is still trying to milk the old brandname and fractured off into feuding factions, it’s kinda sad really-like with that whole stupidly tedious L.A. Guns debacle. Or Gene Loves Jezebel. Which one does mom like best? I only feel bad for people who got rippedoff like Chris Holmes in WASP. Britney Fox are more Spinal Tap than even like, Quiet Riot or Roxx Gang.

I LIKE SPIKE

Always preferred the Quireboys to the Black Crowes whose best song was a naked ripoff of Mother Love Bone’s “Crown Of Thorns”. “Sometimes Salvation” was good and that kool chick from the Rat, Kit was her name, her mom owned an Egyptian dress store on Newbury Street, Kit played “She Talks To Angels” to me all night long way back when we were friends. So I have a soft spot for that one, I was crazy about Kit who looked just like Virgian Madsen from that eighties new wave movie, “Modern Girls’, but really the Crowes mostly had super nice, enviably Brian Jonesy clothes. As soon as Johnny Colt split they kinda became Deadheads, and as a non potsmoker reefer jams and Zeppelin covers aint my scene at all. The Quireboys have always been an oustanding rocknroll band. As someone who hadda lotta different bandmates who sang my songs in a velvet newsboy cap without me figuring they can pass as both of us, my sympathy and solidarity is always gonna be with SPIKE, basically my generation’s finest velvet jacketed, ciagrette raspy, Rod Stewart storyteller. Love him to death.

“I don’t want to live in a make believe democracy where our lying corrupt Gov’t is telling social media companies what they can and cannot report and who they should and should not censor, no matter what the Party affiliation or personal beliefs.

I guess that makes me crazy. Putin isn’t trying to take over the world, the United States is trying to maintain their control of it. How has nobody noticed that our Gov’t only cares about democracy, sovereignty and human rights in countries that do not obey us?

Countries that serve a purpose for us can be a dictatorship, apartheid State, chop off their citizens heads, and committ genocides with a free pass. Until Americans escape the false reality we have been conditioned to believe since childhood that our country is a force for good, things in the world will get worse

The country that is most responsible for war, theft, lies, greed and suffering in the world is the United States. If our citizens cared about the truth, we’d look at what happened for the last 8 years before Russia went into Ukraine, but Americans will continue to believe this ridiculous narrative that Putin is just some crazy dictator doing this for no reason trying to take over the world.

Elon’s Twitter Is Still Infiltrated with Former FBI and CIA Agents – These Agents Are Frantically Scrubbing Their LinkedIn Accounts, Read the List Here (thegatewaypundit.com)

Ajamu Baraka on Twitter: “I personally completely support this. Psy-ops are supposed to be illegal in the U.S. but legislation passed under the Obama administration on so-called disinformation provided the space for wholesale domestic propaganda operations in the U.S.” / Twitter

“Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize, and he had a kill list, started 5 more wars, and dropped more bombs than Bush Needless to say, the award has kind of lost its prestige. How many elections will you live through before you notice that we still end up screwed and the rich keep getting richer? We live in the reality created by the people that are exploiting us and creating worldwide chaos They own the media, the politicians, the Gov’t agencies and have no intentions of giving up their power They see their control slipping Sometimes the evil you fear is in your house. You’re allowed to type the name Seth Rich now? You don’t have to cross an ocean to find the people who are really interfering in our elections. If it exposes the people that I like, it is obviously untrue or unimportant If I don’t like who said it, they’re obviously lying If it is about people I hate it is definitely true So there is no need to research myself, because I have my team to confirm what we want to think. People get mad when I criticize Obama and I don’t care because the truth is that we got the same Presidency from him than we would have got from Mitt Romney. I’m 56 and I thought I voted for the first Black President, but now I realize that I’m still waiting. Dems use fear of what the GOP wants to do to the Black community, but if you pay attention, the things they told us to fear, they did to us themselves, as we celebrated their victory

Now if you want a fight for voting rights, they’re here as long as we’re voting for them. In spite of what the part of the Black community that is captured by the Democrats think, censorship is also a Black issue, because the second we step out of line from what the Establishment wants, we’ll be at the top of the list of people they want to shut up. I don’t focus on the Democrats because I like Republicans, I focus on them because they’ve been the ones suckering my community into voting for them for a half century, while delivering nothing for us.” (-Black In The Empire)

The reason you view your oppressors as your saviors is because billions of dollars are spent to warp your mind into believing that you are an imbecile who is incapable of taking care of yourself or knowing what is best for you.” (-Just. A. Thought on censored Twitters)

“Schools in America are more like prisons than they are halls of learning.” (-MC Squared)”

The problem with America is that we are nothing like what we think we are. We are a land of cowards. We do not have a democracy or republic. We barely even have a real government. We lock up the most prisoners in the world. We are subjected to 30,000+ laws made up by rich people. So many bootlickers on this app. Lol. What is wrong with some people?

The US is a fake “government” that does not care if you and your entire family die. Notice how when you are out you rarely see crime, even in big cities. The ruling capitalist class needs us to believe we are in extreme constant danger so they can hire more cops to protect THEM and their properties when Americans inevitably revolt.” (-Jory Michah)

“Breaking a strike & forcing workers back on the job against their will = always bad.” (-Leila Charles Leigh)

Briahna Joy Gray on Twitter: “”This is just stunningly dishonest…Hundreds of thousands of workers who understand what has happened are calling out the betrayal of the squad & the Dem Party & pres Biden, you have commentators…saying that if you agree then you are actually sneering at workers…” @cmkshama” / Twitter

“I done watch this a million times I can’t stop watching it. Ryan Grim

is straight trash & playing dūmb but he is getting paid well by the oligarchs to play his role well & redirect. I’m not falling for that bull sh!t that Ryan is just a reporter when he weighs in almost every damn day to play Captain Save A Hoe to the progressives and especially AOC.” (-Natorrie Lee)

“AOC and the Squad soften the longer they stay in the Democrats — betraying striking workers is the latest.” (-ruth Coppinger)

It is commentators like yourself who…whenever the Dem Party is w/in the cross fire of workers, justifiably, then those people are going to be protected. So when the fire was against AOC & jayapal, then suddenly AOC starts tweeting & you all start defending her.” (-Brihana Joy Gray)

Worker here. Just got done listening to the whole interview. Kshama and Bri are 100% spot on. You are so disconnected from the working class it’s not even funny.” (-Nate Spud talking to a typical corporate media soldout deceiver in the TYT mold, fake as fuck DNC elite bridge troll RG)

Dems were opposed to $15 until the very end, at every step they fought it tooth n nail until a grassroots campaign forced their hand. Same with the #AmazonTax which was won twice, 2nd time after the Dems worked with billionaires to repeal the 1st” (-Ocadd)

Natorrie Lee (@Natorrie32) / Twitter

“In 2020, liberals said we must vote for Biden to end the war on Yemen. Media falsely credited him for ending it, and progressive dupes applauded him. Now Biden is openly pushing to continue the war. In 2024, the same liberals will again insist we vote for Democrats. A rigged game.” (-Dan Cohen)

“Wow supporting rail workers is now an “ultra left” position.” (-Purushva commeting on how far to the right the warpig Clintons and Obama and sellout Sanders and Rebooted Pelosi Fraud Squad have pushed the Overton Window.)

“There are two major grifts going on in US politics:

The fauxgressive “Left” of the Squad, TYT, Sam Seder & Breadtube. And the corporate populism of Musk, Ben Shapiro, Crowder & Charlie Kirk. Neither side questions US imperialism or the true crimes committed by US intelligence.” (-Primo Radical)

“On this Human rights day let it be said that the U.S. is the number 1 violator of human rights on the planet. No nation in human history is responsible for more death & destruction than this settler nation & capitalist empire.” (-Ajamu Baraka)

“I’ll gladly wait a day to get my “pop-tarts” if it means workers get paid sick leave. Also, commerce flows because of workers, not the CEOs or corrupt government officials who exploit them. This is propaganda. President Biden & Vice President Harris just sided with the railroad companies over rail workers who are fighting for paid sick leave. They are working to deliver results for Big Business, not working families.” (-Ryan Knight)

“So-called American “leftists” who have swallowed anti-Russia and anti-China propaganda are far more frustrating than the right.

At least the right is honest and direct. American “leftists” cover up their warmongering in “freedom” and even “socialism.” “The communists who run Twitter.”

“The communists who run the FBI.”

This is your brain melting from anti-communism.” (-Danny Haiphong)

“But there is no money for children in poverty so take away the child tax credit and certainly no money for sick and parental leave. Why? The public’s money is being plundered to support a ruling class adventure in Eastern Europe where everyone is making money!” (-Ajamu Baraka)

“The US embassy is pushing the narrative that Peru’s President Castillo launched a coup. In reality he’s victim of a coup by the right-wing-controlled congress

Police arrested him. Congress swore in a new president Dina Boluarte, who was expelled from the leftist Perú Libre party” (-Ben Norton)”

In other words, if twitter does not comply with assisting the state in monitoring the public they will have a problem with Congress. Folks, what you are witnessing is the disarray among ruling class forces with neoliberal fraction opting for more repression & control.” (-Ajamu Baraka)

“The only way to make this article honest and not sleazy would be if it were titled “Australian military industrial complex-funded think tank says Australians should pour way more money into the military industrial complex.”” (-Caitlin Johnstone)

“Yes, we should all love capitalism for creating billions of poor people just to enrich a tiny few elites. Bush lied, more than a million Iraqis died.

Obama lied, more than 500,000 Syrians and Libyans died. Biden lied, more than 100,000+ Ukrainians died.

U.S. Presidents are the world’s most dangerous gangsters.

Meanwhile, the US is inching closer to World War III with Russia and China, monopolists like Musk have caused permanent recession, and hunger and poverty are skyrocketing.” (-Danny Haiphong)

“People defend their rulers for the same reason cultists defend their cult leader: because they’ve been indoctrinated. And using many of the same psychological manipulation techniques.” (-Caitlin Johnstone)

HUMAN LEAGUE

Last year for Christmas I got that fantastic book about the New Romantic movement and it made ya smile alot, ya know if you grew up on “Smash Hits” and “ID” and “Interview” magazine like me-all the stories of weirdos nightclubbers like Marilyn and Boy George and Steve Strange and Nick Rhodes and John Taylor forming bands or obtaining early synthesizers and primitive drum machines and imitating Kraftwork and Bowie and Reggae and Bambatta however poorly gave us everything from Soft Cell to Howard Jones, Depeche Mode and Ministry. I still love all that stuff. One of the girls in the band quipped that Phil Oakey probably wanted some foxy black chicks like Bryan Ferry had but got two white chcicks who couldn’t sing, instead. So I gotta rememeber to cancel this Roku 7 day free trial probably expensive concert channel before they start charging me an arm and a leg but wow, man, in spite of my Loud Teenager yelling over most of it and complaining about how bad they suck, and he is not entirely wrong, I really loved and enjoyed watching the HUMAN LEAGUE concert video and hope to finish seeing the rest of it tonight. I love Human League, Phil Oakey is one of the reasons I first pierced an ear and dyed my hair and started dressing like I did back in 82 or 83 resulting in so much authoritarian persecution and conformity cow violence. I’ll always love The League. Anti-Nowhere League, too.

GUY GRIFFIN The Quireboys – Blackwater – Orchestral Quireboys Live – YouTube WHERE’S SPIKE?

MONDAY MORNINGWokeup terrified about going to the dentist again, worried about my very estranged and missing adult children, what kinda world we are lettin’ ’em inherit while we sleepwalk drowsily through this bullshit big pharma mooodpill I-phone metaverse psy ops propaganda spell. Try to talk to some friend you’ve known since third grade about 5Gen warfare, how d’ya think they’ll respond? All the middle aged, middle class moms seem mostly content to help preserve the far rightwing corporate billionaire secretive ruling class staus quo, s’long as they are presented with some diverse and fauxwoke politeness, shitlib celebrities like Kopmala and AOC (they/the man) they can worship, and nobody threatens to take away their winebox/pain pills, hot tub, passive income, or Amazon priviliges. Dudes I knew will stab you in the back just to stand in some squre foot beneath a lightbulb in the corner of some gentrified hive mind brunch bar, or to smack talk ya to that girl you used to know. So windy out here in Marlboro Country, that all the town’s Santas blew down, ya know-they all look passed out drunk…or weeping for humanity. I’m in a hostage situation, nowhere to run, nowhere to go. Can’t relate to nobody, got nothing in common with the money having empire havers. Somebody told me you can’t get on an Amtrak or Grayhound without a valid ID since Bush launched his fakeass police state “war (of) terror”, but DMV stayed closed during Fauchi shutdowns when a lotta people’s ID’s expired-now you need an appointment. And two forms of ID to get your ID even if you still got the expired ID. Shitlibs think all this stuff is just clerical errors, human oversight, bureaucratic red tape, oopsy daisy “well you shoulda blah blah blah”, but us poor people down on the street know the motherfuckers who own the government are trying to kill off all us inconvenient poor people. Kissinger calls us useless eaters-his protege Schwab has big plans to chip you and steal all your stuff. First they put their operatives in government and they incrementally strip you of human rights, while their gatekeeper bridge troll media whores bullshit you into thinking it’s all for a higher cause, the greater good-woke science and proper pro noun diversity. It’s a sham. You been pink and greenwashed-no billioniares care about your children’s wellbeing. When your Sunday church Target says Expect More Pay less, they talkin’ ’bout their policy towards their slaves. I don’t believe in billionaires or political parties, or today’s new slogan on pig-media, or that my identity can be assigned, defined or dictated or replicated by others. Certainly not by insanely giddy depopulator Gates or his Bond villain creepy crony Klaus in his occultic sci-fi dress. I was watching “Blade Runner” on VHS in the garage, hadn’t seen it since the 80’s-good flick-one of the Replicants is telling his hunter what it’s like to be a slave and live in fear all your life. That’s also a theme of my own song lyrics, so I guess others have been contemplating these grim facts of life before me. It really is a class war being aggressively waged on multiple fronts against us slaves by theses mighty psychopaths and we’re all so conditioned, we applaud them while they kill us, and curse our fellow slaves. Think about how England was forced to mourn for weeks when their monarch died. You better order that big pizza box football feast before halftime or it might be late, nudge, nudge. I live in the Southwest nowherelands and have to hear about the fucking UK royals and what Elon Musk had for breakfast EVERYDAY. Try and go a half an hour without hearing somebody Blaming Trump for everything, even though he’s just one more asshole ruling class bigoted blowhard, there’s millions more just like him. My high school sports coaches, most of the old men at my grandfather’s golf course. Every judge. Every member of the military. Your former father in law the nightclub owner. C’mon, think about it, you think he’s some unusual anomoly? Take a look at your dad. Ain’t he bitchin’ about the immigrants and protestors and Colin Kirkpatrick and how nobody wants to work, like, right now? Scotch n steak and casual racism? Law & Order, backs the blue? I’m so depressed I wanna go to sleep, but the mail lady’s gonna be here soon and she don’t like gettin’ out of her car so she honks the horn so I’ll come fetch the mail at the end of the driveway-she drive real fast, they all seem like maniacs to me now. I’m supposed to be getting a book for my birthday. I asked my mom for the Repalcements book, but then I realized, I should’ve asked for the RAZZLE book instead. Lucky to get anything, hope the heat holds up tonight. At my age you’re lucky to ecven have a roof. If you’re poor, you’re lucky to have even some of your teeth. Supposed to get down into the twenties tonight. The wind has knocked the whole town sideways. Lotta people are frightened as fuck about the stuff that Mark Crispin Miller and Tessa Fights Robots have to say about science, truth, facts, and profit motive propaganda, but I believe their main message remains, “Stay Human”, which is becoming ever more challlenging, in this Bladerunner-like Fifth Gen Warfare Metaverse Hive Mind Total Spectrum Domination Panopticon Monopoly Twitterverse Fake World.

Cold morning, many worries, miss my longlost, long gone, sadly absent, adult kids, might be taking more landscaping work, helping care for an ailing cowboy, the lady I was working for kinda gently replaced me with an infinitely more qualified and knowledgeable handyman, who actually knows how to fix things with tools, and aint as afraid of climbing high ladders, she was fortunate to find him, he works cheap and most fix-it guys around here are halfassed fly by night leave it all undone/might steal shysters. I don’t mind getting my hands dirty helpin’ out, but I’m not a handy dandy to-do list, roof and heating repairman, home improvement kinda guy, which was of course, my ex wife’s main complaint-she said she wanted a help-mate, somebody to retile the floor on her flip properties. I’m better with like a microphone stand and some scarves than I am with you know a hammer, rake, plunger or drill. I keep thinkin’ bout the Guy Griffin/Spike split and what a shame it is. I tend to sympathize with Spike. Ya know it’s happened to me before-even the guys who I helped build their whole thing from the ground up have looked at me and decided, i don’t need that guy, I’ll just sing his songs and wear his old hat. Use his bandname, nobody’ll know the difference. Of course everybody knows the difference. It’s kinda trippy bein’ me cause to my face all the hipsters and artsy fartsies will talk about how it’s groovier to be free, than have money, can barely hold  the pose for five seconds before they are full on back to rambling on about how they’re gonna be rich and famous, rich and famous, rich and famous, overnight rich and famous. Their mother in laws’s letting ’em run the Airbandb and they got their lotus flower paintings for sale in the lobby, or their wife bought ’em a website and a podcast and some vanity merchandise so now they decided they can eat your face and be you, they got the Tuesday night records DJ spot at the fake divebar in the gentrification zipcode where douchelords can punch homeless sick people and get away with it. The fake rocker kids in the expensive hats will all slap ’em on the back and affirm their alpha male ownership society “Thank You, Sir” status so they can keep theirTuesday night records DJ spot and free drink tickets to give to girls.

Rolling Stone and Spin are bullshit. ‘Same people pay Tucker Carlson as Rachel Maddow. Same takeaway in different tones: billionaires are good, need more jails, more bombs, more war.

The Golden Rat – ‘We Got a Right’ – BROKEN 8 RECORDS

WARPIGS, TECHSURVEILLANCE OLIGARCHS, DEEP STATE SPOOKS LOCKED ME OUTTA FACEBOOK FOR BEING ANTIWAR! INSTEAD OF PULLING BIDEN LEFT, THE FRAUDSQUAD & SAD SELLOUT SANDERS PULLED SHITLIBS RIGHT! THE ROCK PRESS IN THIS COUNTRY IS JUST LIKE THREE YOUTUBERS! HERE’S MY FAVORITE!

And I don’t really give a fuck, as they’d been censoring me and everybody like Mike Prysner and Abby Martin and Cindy Sheehan and Medea Benjamin for years, rigging the algorithms, hiding our posts. Training dumbuck obedients into blindly supporting more online censorship because someone in some safespace college campus might find something from a scientific journal “objectionable”, “problematic”, or “offensive!” or AOC might be “traumatized” into superfunding the police state and proxy war for Wall Street global hegemonn. “Traumatized” by an old dude messing up Pelosi’s desk or some shit. Tim Yohannon warned us about Fake Corporate Punk and mass media consolidation way back in the early 90’s. Sal from Electric Frankenstein was talking about evil industry manufactured bullshit conumer dummy muzak way back then, too and tightknit control of playlists on the public airwaves-what he used to call the ANTI ROCK CONSPIRACY. It’s all fake muzak, now. Plink 182 spazpunk garbage and billionaire heiress feelings. It’s all fake news now, what a horror show. Vangaurd and Blackrock own it all, so we gotta all do our part to amplify indie media and dissident journalists from Michael Hastings (RIP) to Julian Assange! The entire Left has been silenced in the big 5 corporate mass media. Village Voice is gone, Flipside’s gone. I don’t even think Falling James writes for L.A. Weekly anymore. One of the only falsebook friends I miss seeing regular updates from is this super cool younger rocknroll reporter from California I think named Mikayla Beyer-her fantastic glam interviews with so many of our rocknroll heroes are among my favorite things online along with that Metal Sunday Social Club the dude from Blackboard Jungle does and Wasting Some Time with Jason Green. She is awesome. Thank you for your service, sister. She loves all the same glitter trash we do. I can’t ask my mom for a birthday or Christmas subscription to UK import punknroll bible “VIVE LE ROCK” as she’s a retired school teacher ona fixed income, that’s shit’s like $25 a copy now, so all my rocknroll has to come from like the youtubes. I’m a pauper.

“There are “woke” psyops and there “anti-woke” psyops.

There are billionaires funding “progressive” media & politicians, and there are billionaires funding “populist” media & politicians. There are feds in antifa and in the Proud Boys. It’s pro-wrestling. A “worked shoot.”” (-Primo Radical)

Permanent cultural conflict prevents middle & working class subgroups from unity on common causes, that could threaten elite power. Always enough hostility & distrust (or so they make it seem) to never work together.” (-Erik Reisz Hajdu)

“Once you realize that Republicans and Democrats are competing factions of the mafia, American politics makes a lot more sense” (-Whitney Webb)

“As part of its war that killed 3 million people in Korea, the US used biological weapons

But the CIA tried to cover this up in a “counter-propaganda” operation, falsely claiming it was a communist “myth” (-Ben Norton)

“Liberals say that conservatives are stupid because they do not listen to facts, logic, data or history — flippantly ignoring these things in defense of pre-programmed beliefs and their tribe.

Why is it, then, that liberals cannot recognize when they do the exact same thing?” (-Primo Radical)

Mick Wallace on Twitter: “While Taliban put in place more restrictions on women’s rights, Western Sanctions slowly starve the country to death. #EU response to Ukrainian Refugee Crisis showed what’s possible but politicians are content with the 2 tier system in Europe for Refugees – It’s called Racism… https://t.co/t0EUc7sx8u” / Twitter

“The final version of the NDAA includes a provision granting the Pentagon “emergency” procurement authorities until at least September 30, 2024 to furnish all “materiel and related services” to Ukraine. Translation: the US is now in full wartime industrial production mode” (-Michael Tracey)

“This country is a nation of thieves. It stole everything it has, beginning with black people. The U.S. cannot justify its existence as the policeman of the world any longer. I do not want to be a part of the American pie. The American pie means raping South Africa, beating Vietnam, beating South America, raping the Philippines, raping every country you’ve been in. I don’t want any of your blood money. I don’t want to be part of that system. We must question whether or not we want this country to continue being the wealthiest country in the world at the price of raping everybody else.”(―Stokely Carmichael)

Yes they should be pardoned! And the war criminals responsible for over a million deaths tried instead. Quit hiding the #Costofwar” (-Jodie Evans on Assange and Snowden poll)

The fact that Joe Biden was yelling and pointing fingers at workers during the campaign was your first clue that he was going to be an anti-labor president and another puppet of the oligarchy.” (-Ryan Knight)

“Making a rail strike illegal just proves how terrified the ruling class is of worker’s power.

The largest strikes in history – that gave us things like a 40 hr work week & took kids out of mines – were illegal. So, what if you called their bluff? #RailStrikes #Railworkers” (-Elenor Goldfield)

“NATO is not the aggressor.

The vaccine is safe & effective. The Hunter Biden laptop is disinformation. Trump colluded with Russia. Epstein & Maxwell had no clients. Assad gassed his own people. We are winning in Afghanistan. Iraq has weapons of mass destruction.” (-Primo Radical)

So far billions in American taxpayer money has achieved getting over 100,000 Ukrainian soldiers killed and almost 20% of their country taken For nothing our Gov’t could have told Ukraine to honor the Minsk agreement they signed and none of this would have happened. Reminder: Victoria Nuland is caught on tape picking Ukraine’s new Gov’t before the coup in 2014 even happened and Biden is on video bragging about firing their prosecutor That’s the sovereign Ukraine they keep talking about. The EU is even getting pissed about the US profiting off of this war by ripping them off, while our own American citizens are still cheering on watching billions of our dollars being stolen from us and given to the ruling class again” (-Black In The Empire)

“Nancy Pelosi will be stepping down after 627 years as leader of the Democrats in the House of Representatives. She will be remembered by the piles of money she secured for herself & her friends.” (-Lee Camp)

“Reminder: fascist Bolsonaro only came to power due to a political coup in 2016 and judicial coup in 2018 (both backed by the US)

SOUR JAZZ LIVED ON A STREET CALLED ROCKNROLL

Are you hip to these guys? By the time RATBOY was doing SOUR JAZZ, Giliani and all those billionaire gentrification scumbags had been sending buses full of riot pigs to crack people’s skulls in Tompkins Square Park for the sin of being poor in Lower Manhattan. They pushed out all us lower class brats to make way for all those loathsome trustfund hipsters and Wall Street shysters, so I never saw Sour Jazz play live, but Cowboy Mark came to visit me at my ex wife’s house in the midwest where they manufacture the fratboys when my kids were young. Very charming and lovable guy. I interviewed singer Lou a couple times I think and the drummer went on to play with Walter Lure’s post “RENT PARTY” Waldos for long time and even sang a song on their final album. I thought you outlaws and activists, guttersnipes and beat poets might enjoy some SOUR JAZZ songs in thee dismal ever darkening times that all the prophets from Alice Walker and Russell Means to Assata Shakur and Julian Assange all warned us about. So here, my dears.

THE COUNTDOWN
In about an hour I gotta go get another tooth pulled, losing your teeth is a real mindfuck, ya know you can dye your hair and drop the weight and almost forget you are fifty something, but the teeth starting to fall out due to advanced periodontal disease is a constant reminder of the ticking clock. Kinda makes ya wanna cry a little. My old friends, the poor ones without some fancy health insurance have already lost their teeth. My friends keep dropping dead, one by one, so many died young, now that has accelerated-people are dropping dead all over the place, even on live tv and all the obits just say “died unexpectedly” or “died suddenly”. Kids with heart attacks? Under sixty having strokes? “Just died unexpectedly”. Unexpectedly is not a cause of death. I remember the video someone made of my New Orleans street musician where they guessed he was twenty five years older than he was at the time. Life outdoors in the elements gets brutal fast. Middle class people been tv trained to just think the poor huddled masses do not deserve teeth or optical. Our appearance keep changing as we get older. There were a few years I recall when I wore almost the same outfit everyday-long black hair, little bit of eye makeup, maybe one dangling Lords sword earring, Godfather fedora, red leather jacket, white tuxedo shirt, black leather hardcore belt with chains I lost in a messy eviction, black Lip Service bondage pants, leopard skin creepers. Midwestern sports towns would not let you work hardly anywhere, unless you had short hair. Even the record store in the mall where my Michael Hutchence lookalike older bassplayer worked when I met him always insisted I was too Ramonesey, longhaired. Longhair was okay for him cause he was conventionally Handsome, whereas I am not. A kid I knew in a collegetown hot rod band who died when his disease spread while he was in jail for DUI’s was allowed to bag groceries at Krogers in spite of his crazy punk rock hair, but for the most part, only elite hipster businesses would let you work there with tattoos. Now everybody you see has tattoos, it was different when I was a kid, and my twenties seemed to be all about the screws getting steadily tighter, like when they took away all the bus stop benches in the cities, removed all public phones mandating traceable personal cellphones, started groping you in the airport, locked all the public restrooms in the parks, doing the whole psy op about anthrax and orange alerts and Bush telling you to but duct tape from his Home Depot pal Tom Ridge. I knew people who went to jail for pot and acid. Singer in a psychedelic garage band did like two years for a pocket full of weed. They made me piss test for dishwasher jobs and as a pizzamaker at the bowling alley. I was the only one who was forced to piss test because the way I looked, they’d presume I’m a hippie stoner. I’d tell ’em straight up, I’m more of an old fashioned Jim Morrison boozeman, but they’d still make you go pee in a cup to get their minimum wage job. Knew a guy who got a city job, good money, easy peasy, twenty bucks an hour to stand around in an orange vest, but he had to do all these stupid human tricks to get that gig, even though he’s a decorated veteran, he had to smuggle somebody elses urine into their piss clinic. Cause he’s a reefer afficianado. So many boomers and white middle class suburbans are being granted reefer rights, but not all the non violent drug offenders are free from the forced labor in private prisons promoted by people like Kamala Harris. Techlords purged me from Facebook, Garland Nixon from Twitter, Dr. Naomi Wolf from Twitter, and scrubbed years and years of interviews by Chris Hedges, Abby Martin, and Lee Camp from Youtube. Fauntleroy clingers on from namebrand bands gone outta thier way to help The Man enforce his Official, for profit, bogus falsehood, tyrrany Narratives online, throwing all their second hand fame around. It astounds me that any of the human beings I grew up with, especially the ones who once and maybe still owned punk rock records or grew up hearing me talk about the Panthers, antiwar movement, the Wobblies, the American Indian Movement or Michael Hastings still support the police state and the Ted Talk stated objectives of totalitarian Davos billionaires who want a microchip cashless society and control of every aspect of your little life-evil rulers who meet in secret and handpick people like Sinema, Trudeau, Macron, and Desantis. It’s a crazy world and fictitious times. It was Michael Moore who used that phrase, but now, he just became a legman for the crooked DNC. I liked him better when he fought the billionaires and advocated for low wage workers, social justice causes and unions, now he’s just another “russiagate” Hillary obeyer like the Squad and Bernie-you think all those people got actual threats from the deep state during the Covid Panic? ‘Cause they ALL got in line to support Gropey Joe Biden, as corrupt a candidate as any we’ve ever seen. Remember Anita Hill or the Crimebill? Tara Reade or the Patriot Act? The gropey Big Guy is not all there. Like Reagan, tthey just lead him around. Weekend at Gropey Joe’s. I think all the politics are a staged dog n pony show, wagging the dog for the secret societies and spy agencies. One of my alltime rocknroll heroes just told me he loves me very, very much and it almost made me cry. Ya know when everything seems so ridiculously dystopian and all your ex friends only speak in bumper stickers, dayspa jingles or pharma commercials, it’s really moving to receive a kind word from someone who is still conscious and not baffled by the bullshit. I really, really love him, too.
Another way I know I’m getting old is I got more psychic space for some sillier say nothing bands I would have scorned or scoffed at twenty years ago when I still had some longshot, raggedy, underpracticed, low budget, part time, heavy boozing, self destructive basement punk bands of my own. Like this snot slick group, DERAPS–they got the California hair band sound, they’re mostly Van Halen but with a little White Lion and Honeymoon Suite thrown in the mix-pop metal, cheerful, slick, rich, born on Malibu beach kinda vibes, but to make it all even a bit weirder, they’re from Quebec Canada and like jam with Eddie Van Halen’s friends from Toto who played on “Thriller” and shit like that-I don’t mind ’em, something ’bout them appeals to me against my will and better judgement, I guess they give me that checkered Vans and Eddie Van beer in the cooler and frisbee dog feeling. Not punk rock by any stretch of the imagination-the opposite of that totally-posh metal, but I kinda dig it. It’s very much in the corporate hairband assembly line tradition of Warrant and Bullet Boys and Whitesnake and Winger and Nelson, but the weedly musicianship is of a higher caliber ala Nuno or Eddie Van. If you were one of the ten people still alive who read any of my fanzines in the 80’s, you’ll know I used to mercliessly slag any formulaic hair metal merchants for co-pting our subversive street subculture.
