Leadbelly: Live at Budokan

I watched a bit of TV last night. PBS was airing a show about David Geffen on American Masters, and I watched most of it. I missed some of the beginning, but it appeared they were going chronologically through his life. As the show progressed, I was curious to see the Nirvana part of the story. But, aside from several fleeting glimpses and mentions of the band, they weren't really talked about at all. The last band discussed with any depth was Guns and Roses. Maybe the Nirvana stuff didn't make it past the film editor due to time constraints, maybe it was never part of the narrative because Geffen didn't interact much with the band, I don't really know.

 

Meanwhile, earlier in the evening while watching Family Guy, the Point of Stew episode, around the 4:15 mark, Stewie hops in the time machine and goes back to the moment right before Kurt Cobain is going to kill himself. Stewie gives him a pint of Haagen Daz strawberry ice cream, then he goes back to 2012, "Well, Let's see if it worked", and he starts flipping through the CD collection,"...ah, there we go", and there's a Nirvana:Live at Budokan 2012 CD, "...you're still alive, you fat fuck."

 And I started thinking, maybe if David Geffen had bought Leadbelly's guitar for Kurt Cobain, he wouldn't have killed himself, probably not, but my mind likes to ask the "what if?" questions.

How Many Pacers Can You Fit On A Car Elevator?

Apparently, The Secret Service's code name for Mitt Romney was "Javelin". We've been having a bit of fun with it, as Javelin was a model of AMC, the company run by Romney's dad, George.

I wonder what Ann Romney's code name was?

Mitt Romney's Post Election Plans

1. Bain Capital takeover of Chrysler, start sending Jeep jobs to China, for reals.

 2. Move to Canada, or maybe Mexico. Start out small, maybe run for dogcatcher, work your way up to a Governorship, then form an exploratory committee for a Presidential run.

 3. Realize the economic benefit of legalizing marijuana, and start the hostile takeover of Colorado dispensaries.

4. Get a new dog, call him Charly, strap him to the roof of your car and travel the country. Write a book about the experience.

5. Change out of that "lucky" pair of magical underpants.

 6. Amend the tax returns from the previous couple of years. Go back to not paying any taxes.

 7. Corner the Amero market.


8. Dabble in the lucrative Droog Derivatives market.

 9. Publicly acknowledge your lie about "the trees are all the right height".

 10. Take time off to study Scripture.

Meth Odd Actors

Back in early 2009, I started a storyline with The Grill Rats that ended up in the John Barleycorn Must Fry collection. Thanks to all the folks who bought the book! A QUICK RECAP OF THE START OF THE STORY....

Steve the Manager rehired Tom as a cook at The Copper Kettle after Tom threatened to return everyday as a customer, right before the lunch rush, with an army of his smelly homeless friends. Tom and Joey the Busboy have a hydroponic pot farm in the crawl space above the restaurant ceiling, and they roped Bob the Cook into their operation. Tom and Bob went to Bob's Grandparents' farm to rent their barn for the storage of the pot harvest. Their cover story is that they are starting a band and they want the barn for rehearsal space.

Meanwhile, John Poindexter and Ollie North were concerned that President Obama will cut the defense budget, so they held a seance and consulted the ghosts of Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon. Nixon hatched the plan to buy up foreclosed homes and turn them into meth labs and indoor pot farms to generate money for covert military operations.For his headquarters, Ollie North purchased the foreclosed farm down the road from Bob's Grandparents, and began assembling his "F-Troop Team" by calling on G. Gordon Liddy.
And it goes on from there, with a "Larry Craig Seeks The Foreskin of Obama for Karl Rove's John Birth Society" mixed in. So, aside from trying to sell you a comic book, why am I bringing all this up now? Well, it was with great amusement that I read this story.... Republican Meth Labs of Democracy; documents found in Colorado meth house reveal inner workings of Dark Money Group.
