“Propagandists argue that there are 1,000 derailments per year to demean the Ohio disaster. It’s not the derailment that caused the crisis. It was the purposeful decision to line the derailed poison-filled cars w/ explosives & consciously bomb the village to save a few bucks.” (-Jeremy Loffredo)

“How do you go into journalism, know anything about the history of the US, and not look around and ask: 

“Why is it that our ostensible news network employs huge numbers of former operatives of the FBI, CIA, DOJ, Pentagon and NSA to report the ‘news'”?” (-Glenn Greenwald)

“Ninety percent of the American people believe there was a conspiracy involved in the assassination of the president. The other 10 percent work for the media or the government, probably.” (- Richard Belzer 1944-2023)

“Some may never live, but the crazy never die.” (-Hunter S. Thompson)

“Nobody who imperial narrative managers label “isolationists” are ever actually isolationists; Hawley is a virulent warmonger only opposes the Ukraine proxy war because he wants the US to focus on preparing for war with China. It’s so trippy how Democrats and both MAGA and non-MAGA Republicans all play along with this narrative that MAGA Republicans are rolling back US militarism, when in reality they’re just in favor of shifting the focus of the US war machine.” (-Caitlin Johnstone)

“If you are wondering why several countries ban certain U.S. foods it’s because there are 3,000 untested chemicals that appear in our food. Yes, our own government is allowing these big corporations to put untested chemicals in our food and it’s not even the top story on the news.” (-Ryan Knight)

They are not only allowing it, they are knowingly making us sick and then offering us their harsh drugs with side effects to fix it for profit.” (-Jory Micha)

“The trauma of just getting by financially is something we need to talk more about. The stress and fear is chronic.” (-Dr. Nicole LePera)

“More money for Ukraine. $10 billion! When does it end?” (-Sabby Sabs)

“I’ve seen a ton of snickering aimed at those suggesting that perhaps Biden should be visiting East Palestine where Americans are suffering rather than plopping into Ukraine, a foreign country, but I don’t understand the basis for the snickering. Could someone explain it to me?” (-Glenn Greenwald)”Gentrified Safespace Shitlibs hate poor people.” (-General Labor)

Awww, man, all my smallish dead trees blew down in the extreme winds wich kinda sucks cause they helped provide us with cover from the nosy neighbors. I’ve never been like the landscapin’ man but here since we got a yard, I’m kinda feelin’ my way into it. Gardening was my grandfather’s respite and refuge. Me and him loved each other but never understood each other. He was a hardass farmer with shrapnel in his forearms and I was like into comic books and David Bowie and punk rock and shit.

I particularly related to the Adam Ant song, “Feeding Me To The Lions” as a kid cause that’s just exactly what it was like, being weird in a hickoid sports state. I still feel that way now with my bad back and ongoing alienation from the pig-media manufactured culture wars horseshit, all the pack-rat Borg-Bots still trying to make up comply and obey and goose step our way to Armaggeddon or sudden death, all the age old heartaches and disappointments, being targeted and misunderstood by the middle managers and tobacco spitters, the anguish, grief, sorrow, and useless nicotine cravings.

Just so grateful I did not growup with all the sniveling safespace college people always finding something to be offended about like that is some accomplishment or invention or contribution, forever wanting to silence or demonetize anyone they deem as insufficiently fauxwoke, or snivelingly safe and cuddly and polite enough for their special classer fragility worldviews, we had Eddie Murphy movies and laughed like pirates, he said all kinds of shit that offended Tipper Gore and made the rest of us laugh. Richard Pryor, too. We had writers like Hunter S. Thompson and Charles Bukowski who told the truth with great humor and compassion and observational analysis. That was the stuff of real inspiration to some of us as young people, but also, all the punk rock and new wave bands, we were so fortunate to inhabit that splendidly enchanted era with all the energizing pulsating dancefloor drums of Blondie, Depeche Mode and Duran Duran and Dead Or Alive, and all the bad ass guitar heroes like Neal X and Marco Pirroni, Steve Stevens and Paul Reynolds, Elliot Easton, Will Sergeant, and Johnny Marr. I may not have had siblings or support at home when shit went bad at the bullying white power suburban sports school, but I did have a love and grand passion for all that magical, fantastic eighties music, like Prince and Depeche Mode, Billy Idol, and Adam & The Ants. Fuck man, it was all so glorious and beautiful and heartfelt and true. Even the most preposterous cartoon characters like Pete Burns and Dirty Deg, Boy George and Nina Hafen, they were all so wonderfully colorful and entertaining, and yeah a big part of me is still back there making collages out of old “Smash Hits” and “Creem”, playing stacks of records by Smiths and Bow Wow Wow and all the Prince produced groups and even older 70’s bands like Slade and the Sweet. There were still fascists and privilege Karens trying to make us obey, or impose their private trauma, beliefs, or preferences on others-like the P.M.R.C.. All those bad guys from the John Hughes movies were in fact more humane than the jock dickheads I went to school with. Ollie North was running guns and the deep state was fucking over Jimmy Carter, there were bigots and assholes and “Greed Is Good” mass media programming…but we had so much real music with soulpower and real emotions that nourished and nurtured us, I’m an old man now and still drawing power, love, and inspiration from those old songs. All the new wave singles and MTV videos were totally pop art! Adam Ant was part Robin Hood, part Captain Hook, part Peter Pan, part Roy Rogers, it was perfect. Henry Rollins said Black Flag Kills Ants Dead, but to me, Adam and lots of the new wave bands, even Michael Jackson and Rick James were 1000% times more entertaining than any of those shirtless jock, mob mentality, stupid gray shorts hardcore dicks with all their testosterone crazy male bonding and DC private school complaining and trying to pimpose their beliefs on others. I’d had enough of jock dickheads way back in the sixth or seventh grade, really. I was looking for escapism and futuristic pirate realms. Adam still tours in the UK! VIVE LE JOLA!

Of course, Bowie, Sweet, Slade and T Rex paved the way for all our fave eighties new wave and glam, post punk hitmakers. And THE RAMONES!  And Sputnik and Celebrity Skin! They were the best, had the best singles! “Six Teens” is my favorite! Last night, my old lady was flipping through the youtubes and when she heard Depeche Mode’s cover of David Bowie’s “Heroes”, she finally saw it. Shew as like, “that could be you-why don’t you do THAT?” I’m like, “Right? Yeah, should’ve thought of that sooner!”

“The USA, the only country in the world that murdered hundreds of thousands of civilians with atomic bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, author of Operation Condor, of assassinations, interventions and coups d’état throughout the world, has no morals to accuse Russia of ‘crimes against humanity’.

American Capitalism’s Growing Dysfunction, by Rainer Shea – Dandelion Salad (

Man my little town was efficiently killedoff by the Covid clampdowns and all the elderly people still died, they refuse to invest in repairing the infrastructure, so there are non stop floods from burst water pipes, the streets are like Detroit, all potholes, the electricity and phones were out for like two hours today-my kid got sent home early from his alternative learning program and there is no working restroom there, retail shops keep having to shutdown because of floods and not everybody can afford that like these airbandb owners and rich people tourist gallery holes. Whenever I think we got it bad out here with the cold and the wind emergencies, I think of people in Palestine. Or East Palestine. Or Yemen, or Flint, ya know? Rich people do not like us, it’s worse than they just don’t care about us. They seem to be actively seeking to harm the poor of the world on a mass scale. These wars are for Empire and Wall Street/banker hegemony. I absolutely do not understand how the empire just trots out a hand full of token black women or trans-humans, and that empty rebranding supposedly legitimizes all the plunder, carnage, ripoffs, abusive gaslighting, and wars of the one percent, in the eyes of all the fauxwoke, fauxgressive college safespace middleclass haves. All they seem to do, or care about, is repeat these meangingless slogans about how woke and inclusive they are, while poor people drop dead, and the empire eats all those kids abroad for nothing but war machine profits. Gropey Joe is doing all this horrible shit-he’s got superinflation pleasing all his bankster buddies, quadrupled rents and no significant minimum wage raises, three to seven citizens dead a day hypermilitarized and bipartisan overfunded jackbooted fascist killer kkkops, baiting wars with Russia, China, Iran and Haiti, betraying the unions, neglecting to protect even your most basic rights. Shitlibs just keep “identifying” with his double down deluxe Doctor Doctor Doctor Doctor wife, or smooth, dashing droner buddy with the first executive kill list who broke all his campaign promises about putting his comfortable shoes on and joining the picketline and closing the torture and kidnap gulags; or think it’s just so extra super special sensitive scientific if a Trans Surgeon General says nothing about the dangerous toxic effects of poisoned air and water and does nothing to help the poor people poisoned in Pennsylvania or Flint. It’s cute and charming and adorable if a gay Transporation Secretary ignores the poor because when he does it, it’s better than when some old white cys born Cheney or Lindsey Graham fuck over the poor. Most middle class people at this point really do not care about poor people, only their own got-mine vainglory and red carpet celebrity worship. They’d rather praise their token figurehead idle idols than advocate for anything that benefits “the others”. Which is us. The majority who can’t pay the bills. That P.C. identity politics shit is STILL blinding the shitlib fakeass synthetic left into supporting bad spook Mike Pompeo Cointelpro shit, Rachel Maddow McCarthyist cold war phony baloney, hideous oppression of Palestinians, coups in socilaist democracies and needless pissing contests with other nucleur powers. As long as they have some 31 flavors of future fascists to idolize on tv, some Amazon boxes on the sidewalk, a mimosa in their hand and an I-Phone to signal their virtue on, they are content with the corruption and mass murder. Bread and circuses, Netflix and Trader Joe’s , legal reefer and AOC, that’s all they care about. As Hunter S. Thompson who they tried a million ways to cancel and Cointepro until he committed suicide most likely, said so many years ago, during the beginning of the Bush/Cheney proxy war reign, “

We are living in dangerously weird times now. Smart people just shrug and admit they’re dazed and confused. The only ones left with any confidence at all are the New Dumb. It is the beginning of the end of our world as we knew it. Doom is the operative ethic.The downward spiral of Dumbness in America is about to hit a new low.The main problem in any democracy is that crowd-pleasers are generally brainless swine who can go out on a stage & whup their supporters into an orgiastic frenzy – then go back to the office & sell every one of the poor bastards down the tube for a nickel apiece. Probably the rarest form of life in American politics is the man who can turn on a crowd & still keep his head straight – assuming it was straight in the first place.”

“Yeah we’re drinking and we’re dancing

But there’s nothing really happening
And the place is dead as Heaven on a Saturday night
And my very close companion
Gets me fumbling gets me laughing
She’s a hundred but she’s wearing
Something tight
And I lift my glass to the Awful Truth
Which you can’t reveal to the Ears of Youth
Except to say it isn’t worth a dime

And the whole damn place goes crazy twice
And it’s once for the devil and once for Christ
But the Boss don’t like these dizzy heights
We’re busted in the blinding lights
Of Closing Time

The whole damn place goes crazy twice
And it’s once for the devil and once for Christ
But the Boss don’t like these dizzy heights
We’re busted in the blinding lights
Busted in the blinding lights
Of Closing Time

Oh the women tear their blouses off
And the men they dance on the polka-dots
It’s Closing Time
And it’s partner found, it’s partner lost
And it’s hell to pay when the fiddler stops
It’s Closing Time
I swear it happened just like this:
A sigh, a cry, a hungry kiss
It’s Closing Time
The Gates of Love they budged an inch
I can’t say much has happened since
But Closing Time
I loved you when our love was blessed
I love you now there’s nothing left
But Closing Time” (-Leonard Cohen)

SMACK is the answer to summa my problems this morning. Not the substance specifically, but those longhaired Finnish asskickers in all the silver bracelets from so long ago.

This is what we considered real cool rocknroll in my generation. Surprisingly, even Corndog Cobain covered “Run Rabbit Run”, and before they became super famous playing the same 12 songs in stadiums for Events people who don’t really care that much about real rocknroll, Guns N Roses very obviously, emulated them, too. 69 Eyes made no secret of their appreciation for Claude and cohorts. A couple of Smacks moved out to Hollywood and jammed with all the Sunset Strip royals from Decry, Jetboy, Hangmen, etc. Claude formed another cool band called the Fishheads, and much like with the Beasts Of Bourbon, pretty much anything Smack affiliated is gonna be pretty fantastic. When I need to blast away the blues, the lies for empire, the billionaire agenda, the brainwashed culture, the toxic bullshit pop garbage, the phony and transparent propaganda headlines of the day,I play myself some SMACK and it all comes back to me. The loud laughs, howling kicks, full moon, spooky girlfriends, flickering candles, and memories of being untamed and feral and singing our dumb gutsy hearts out, in rosaries and open shirts, swingin’ the bottle flagrantly, struttin’ down the greasy boulevards in mirrored sunglasses. I saw this movie the other night about a working class bar in a remote backwater desolate town, all the hard working people who go to the bar every day after work and spend all their money and go home alone to lives of empty yearning and lost children, after endless hours of abusively ogling long suffering, way underpaid strangers–all the hard up horny miners hitting on the captive transient barmaids, it was very stark and poignant, some of the barflies reminded me of people I knew in prior lives, it was not like the usual unreality tv programming we are so inundated with nowadays that’s always so obviously scripted by slick L.A. hucksters from behind the scenes, this was more like, cameras were were rolling while people did their bit, there is some embarrassing confession, scary stalkers, lighthearted frivolity, some reckless old lady abandon, ballsout bastard bosses, goofy morons, and the heroine ends up heartbreakingly hurt in the end, but it really captures the unbridled joys and stinking desperation of the dead ender drinking classes. I think my buddy Dan Denton the poet wrote a book about it-the old school, blue collar divebars we used to know-the human drama, the casual sexism, the belligerent behaviors, bad dancing, late night revelry, cigarette machines, bad jukeboxes are like bad pizza, and vintage Pabst beer lights. Another round for all my friends. Ya know my wife reminds me sometimes, how even in the four or five semi charmed and golden eras of my life, there was still treachery and subterfuge, stupidity and selfishness, accidents and obliviousness and fuckups and rejection and heartbreak and deaths and unexpected mutinies, cause that’s how life is. You know that Andy McCoy lyric, “I sit and count them shot by shot…”? That’s kinda how I am with cigarettes. Like, I know they’re no good for me, but when I’m suffering or stressed out, always anxious or in grief, ya know, they kinda gimee something to do. This is my Day 2 cigarette free after smoking three packs this year, they weren’t nowhere as good as I remember, so probably nothing else is, either. Smack still works, though.

The Tragic Tale Of Julian Assange’s Father’s Journey – YouTube



“Propaganda can’t get more effective than making Libs support arming Nazis. Fvck NATO, the CIA, FBI, NSA, DAVOS, the NWO, NAFO, the Dems, the GOP, the WEF, the World Bank, Soros, Gates and everybody else using their wealth and power to destroy the world, propagandize us and pit us against each other for their own benifit. How good is United States propaganda? It’s been 11 months. Russia has survived 9 rounds of Western sanctions and the U.S., EU and NATO have given Ukraine $100 billion in cash, weapons and training. They still have Americans believing Ukraine is winning and Russia is weak. Telling people that this war was not unprovoked and the United States spent 8 years trying to start it, that Ukraine is not winning and our politicians are stealing billions from us and giving it to their donors doesn’t mean we work for Putin. It’s just the truth.” (-Black In The Empire)

“A new UN report says over 11,000 children have been directly killed or maimed by the US-backed war on Yemen. This doesn’t include the many thousands killed by famine, lack of medicine, or unclean water. How exactly do Americans tell ourselves we’re the good guys?” (-Lee Camp)

“If the Green Party want to maintain any credibility it must distance itself from Howie Hawkins pro-NATO, pro-U.S. imperialism, pro-democrat party, pro-“American” nationalism.” (-Ajamu Baraka)

“Free Palestine is trending. This is a reminder that the biggest impediment to Palestine’s liberation is the U.S.’s ceaseless funding of Israel’s apartheid regime.” (-Danny Haiphong)

“The United States can’t be responsible for killing as many innocent civilians in black and brown countries as they are, and ignore the genocide and apartheid committed by their allies, but care so much about the war in Ukraine unless they’re racist as hell or full of shit. Russia is beating NATO, the EU, 9 rounds of Western sanctions and $100 billion in cash, weapons, training and other military help from the West in Ukraine. Has everybody not noticed the United States threatening countries that did not go along with their sanctions?

As an American I fully understand why there is no push back from us, because we believe the world is supposed to do what we tell them or face the consequences. While we’re told our country is fighting for freedom and democracy the non western world sees it as our Gov’t organizing coups, pouring fuel on uprisings, killing their leaders, bombing them and stealing their resources. The rest of the world is right, we’re brainwashed. ” (-Black In The Empire)

“Who voted for a U.S. war with Russia? So then, what authority is being used to transfer money from the U.S. public to Ukraine & U.S. arms manufacturers? If the energy & arms manufacturers making record profits believe the war is important shouldn’t the war be privately financed?” (-Ajamu Baraka)

Michael Lockwood Interview-10/13/22 – YouTube


If you ever lived in L.A., you probably got sick of the Stan Ridgeway lineup’s ridiculously overplayed on KROQ song, “Mexican Radio”. I always liked their weirdo spaghetti western B movie road trip vibes, they were often described as Devo goes Oingo Boingo cowpunk, with both singersz sounding like they were phoning their vocals in on a c.b. radio. “Seven Days In Sammytown” was the record that got the most frequent spins at my place back when the kitchen was an all night open bar and we had streams of crazy people in and out all the time. We had these early morning bongo drum and harmonica jams and with at least three stereoes on the house there was always music playing-hiphop coming outta my roommate Hope’s room where she and her three friends would drink Jager and get ready to go out to Axis, Jacobites playing in Nikki’s room, some kinda indie film blaring on the tv with melissa parked on the couch inhaling deep from her bong. It was a perpetual lost weekend on the far side of crazy. A hooligan lived in the basement, he’d be jamming with the guitar teacher and the sax player and the moody tambourine shaker. All the roommates upstairs would always be pissed because he took long showers and never forkedover rent on payday, he’d just vanish. It was a good era in many ways, good era in most ways really. The hootennanny never seemed to end. I’d  kinda flit about from room to room, entertaining guests, talking about Bob Dylan and Bukowski. Personally, I liked the Andy Prieby fronted version of the band better than the original, they were less nerdy/eccentric and more gothic and rocknroll. I also smile  everytime I remember Prieboy wrote a play about Waxl  called “White Trash Wins Lotto”. Very funny. They don’t make  bands like Wall Of Voodoo no more, but if you’d like to try, shoot me a bat signal.

Reading that Westerberg book, he called his crack team of solo era, ever reliable pros, “paid companions”, I don’t want to pay my companions, ya feel me? Where I come from we got a word for that–somethin’ Santa sez alot. I laughed at the part of his book when he kept telling Johnette what an honor it was for her, a female to play on a Replacements record, and she went to get cigarettes and did not come back. One can easily argue that she’s an even better songwriter than he was in his prime. So I wrote a song this morning, something I had not done since my last collaboration resulted in an industry weasel wanting to seize control of my publishing copyrights and cut my main collaborator out completely, fuck that shit, I aint signed nothin’, but don’t mean mf’s can’t steal your shit.. You don’t always have the inspiration to wanna do it again after enough fuck overs. I worry for John Fogerty, probably one of this country’s best ever, because he just finally wrestled control of his own originals back after a lifetime of feeling like his old compositions were poisoned by that Zanz Can’t Dance unscrupulous manager and his traitorous old band. I feel for him for many reasons, but am wary about his wellbeing and safety, cause when Prince got his shit back, that’s when they found him dead and pig media promoted the mockingbird story that he was just another dead drug addict, and not an important and persuasive influencer who had written slave on his face, done battle for decades with the industry titans, went on BET to talk about geoengineering and the corrupt duopoly, and was spending big money discreetly bailing out young black activists involved in the Baltimore and Ferguson uprisings that the system wallpapered over with some opportunistic corporate sloganeering, by merely hiring some newly minted millionaire gotmine poc tokens, superfunding the murderous police state under cover of their maga psy op, and misdirecting legit black rage and righteous populist angst back into the irredeemable DNC voting put-ons. I don’t much miss my last part time labor or dishwashing gigs, but man, do I ever wanna get outta the house somedays. The tedium is murder. I’m up early on a Sunday thinking about venturing forth out into the dog perilous desert. I got a stick, not much of a deterrant if there’s more than one though, I’ll tell you that. I’ve had to fight growly attacking dogs off twice. It’s a drag, I don’t wanna get bit and I don’t wanna hit an animal and the owners of these snarly beasts are just bad people as far I’m concerned. You wanna dog, you should have to keep it inside, fenced in the yard or on a fucking leash. Period. They are irresponsible, passive aggressive, and really if we’re honest aggressive-aggressive sons a bitches these packs of pitbulls owners of the desert Southwest.

Yeah ya know I complain a lot about how there aint enough real rocknroll left around in this decaying, dystopian hellscape world, but I’m always enthused to hear more from Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy who are still treading the boards like Godzilla Motherfuckers according to my much beloved self destruction bluesman and frequent songwriting collaborator, the legendary gypsy road hog, stopless motorcycle cowboy, travelin man and Angus Young of the plantation-states, your favorite he-dog highway chile, Nastee Bastido, of the Original Suffering Bastards, who saw them live last year. The Beggar’s Banquet Arkive who really oughta send me a promo copy of that Hypnotics boxset I wrote some liner notes for have just released my fave record “LOVE” on colored vinyl!!! I guess I am still just a total fan for those blokes cause in spite of having infiltrated the mainstream way back in the eighties, and flickering in and out of popular consciousness, money, drugs, model girlfriends, metal makeovers, having to fraternize with Metallica, all that kinda shit, the CULT remain the rarest breed of real rockstar who never let go of their downhome everyman, gothic streetwise, rebellious rabbkle rousing, anti establishment anarchist, post punk rocker sensibilities, and never stopped writing brilliant songs full of heart and soul. I was not that into Ian’s stint with the 21st Century Doors or whatever, but other than that…they never really disappoint, and let’s be honest, had Ray Manzarek, who wrote the intro to my friend Yvonee de la Vega’s book, asked me to put on some sunglasses and snakeskin pants and sing “Land Ho” and “Roadhouse Blues” with him n Robbie, would I have turned him down? Nahh. They even had a member of FOUR HORSEMEN in their band!  Long live Ian Astbury & Billy Duffy!!

“Next thing you know we’re gonna be giving Ukraine Med4All. Can somebody ask our weapons manufacturers if we can stop this war now? Do you need any more proof that our Gov’t doesn’t give a damn about us? You should start wondering who is paying these people on TV everyday screaming about sending more weapons. Our rulers don’t care about democracy, they’re protecting their hegemony. Our Empire is dying and sees Russia and China as the threats to their hegemony.

They cannot bear the thought of having to share power so instead of working together they must convince us that they are our enemies that we must crush. They are not attacking us, we’re attacking them. There are far too many people that consider themselves on the Left that forgot they are constituents that are supposed to be holding their politicians to their campaign promises and just became fans ready to defend their inaction. They’re getting away with using a war to steal billions from us again and give it to their donors. Americans will never figure out how this works.

Original Queen Of Noise, CherieCurrie the dynamite Runaways lead vocalist and noted chainsaw artisan has a brand new LP on the way and will be touring the UK. Her record was produced by ex Cult/GNR drummer Matt Sorum and co stars some special guests including Juliette Lewis, Brody Dalle, and Billy Corgan. I’m listening to it right now-it’s better than I’d expected. Check these cuts out!!! Very glam. Gorgeous stuff! She’s still awesome. Her tour will be supported by a band called Blue Ruin who remind me of like the Donnas.
