Mitt Romney, Treehugger, Dropping Acid in Algeria with Timothy Leary and Eldridge Cleaver

Mitt Romney has a few things in common with Eldridge Cleaver, the author of the controversial 1960s book Soul On Ice, and who was at various times in his life a rapist, convict, Nation of Islam member, follower of Malcolm X, Minister of Information for the Black Panthers, the 1968 presidential candidate on the Peace and Freedom Party ticket, a fugitive living in Algeria and France, a born again Christian in Chuck Colson's church, a conservative Republican that endorsed Reagan for President, an unsuccessful Republican candidate trying to get the Republican nomination for one of the US Senate seats in California, a talk radio show host, a crackhead, and a baptized Mormon of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

When It Blows its Smokestack Lightning

The Captain on American Bandstand

Microdot making me jealous;
"The Booglarize You clip is from Channel 56 in Detroit...recorded the same time the Magic band opened for the Kinks at Cobo....they came up on the riser in a 62 Caddy Pimpmobile!
I published a clip from the Detroit alternative music show on Channel 62 made a few months earlier of When Big Joan Sets of the funkiest set of gestures ever recorded, followed by Woe Is A Me Bop and the notorious silent, but eloquent barefoot interview of the Magic Band....the info about the performance at Cobo Arena, opening for the Kinks is based on my eyewitness account. What a great show!"

Night of The Living Van Vliet Festival continues.....

Captain Beefheart Festival

Bluegal alerted me that Mike wants to start a Captain Beefheart Festival in the same spirit that folks do Zappadan. It was the 2010 Zappadan when the Captain gave up the ghost. I was right in the middle of doing a Captain inspired comic book when he passed.

Here are some Ice Cream Excerpts For You Crows....

The Persistence of Mammary

This reworked Dali comes from an animated gif from Blackwaxx, so you should head over there to check it out in all its glory.

Meanwhile, The Komen Kult straps on The Seven League Boobs before heading out on their victim campaign. Great strides in victimhood can be achieved while wearing The Seven League Boobs.

Annnnd here's the first mention I've seen of Blogroll Amnesty Day 2012, here at BLCKDGRD, and I'm not surprised as he is one of the most generous linkers in Bleggsylvannia.

From the Blogroll Amnesty Day Archives

Music by Who Be Dat?-- "Mr Policeman's Face" from the 1988 release "Be Careful", featuring the late Nate Solod on Lead Vocals and percussion, Frank Swart on Bass, Jeffrey Clemens on Drums, Percussion, and vocals, and Robert Holmes on guitars. T-shirt by Dominique Zar

Rest in peace, Nate.

Feel free to use the cartoon and video on your own blogs for the Blogroll Amnesty Day festivities.

Booby Trap

The attempted walk back by the Komen Korporation from their vilification of Planned Parenthood is rather amusing. They can't keep their story straight, and when the money flow is threatened (and probably pressured from companies that had already signed on for the 2012 Pinkwashing of Products Season), they try weaseling. As long as the same "Conservatives" remain in charge at Komen, they'll bide their time and phase Planned Parenthood out more gradually.

Danger in the rearview mirror, there's trouble in the wind...

Badness bringing up the rear, the menace is loose again...

I lifted this image from Bluegal's Open Thread at Crooks and Liars, and I wondered if there were anymore photos of Newt Swinging.

Results for Newt on a swing may contain adult oriented content. Safe Search must be turned off to display these results.

She looks so fuckin' good, so sexy and so frail,
something's got the bite on me , I'm going straight to hell...
