Monsters, Weirdos & Creeps

Monsters, Weirdos & Creeps Wax Pack

Released on HALLOWEEN! I finally got a card series together. 27 cards featuring all sorts of Monsters, Weirdos & Creeps on one side & then comix, profiles of heroic people (like Will Elder, Ed Roth & Dr. Demento) & assorted other weirdness on the other side. 1.50 dollar a pack ppd. 7 cards per pack. Best collector card deal in the country. The actual wax pack packaging is full of rantings & ravings for full ephemeral overload!

Get yourself some. You can paypal me 1.50 per pack to gogoblinko at gmail dot com.

The Cure on Chorus TV France

Further evidence of the possible glory of TV.

Check out the opener on this show.

Nina Hagen on the Merv Griffin show with Don Rickles. It's crazy to see the New Wave New Age meet the Vaudeville holdovers, & yet, on TV, it's completely appropriate.

Mr. Potato Head Fakes

I have a special condition where i am obsessed with inanimate objects with faces attached to them. My favorites tend towards bananas. Bananas with faces do it for me every time. So you must imagine the crazed aesthetic spasms i endured upon finding this amazing online museum of Mr. Potato Head Fakes. Marvel at the insane variety of toys available in the glorious past! LOVE the amazing permutations of one simple concept! CRY at the new Mr. Potato Head design & WISH you had an old one of your very own! REMEMBER that Mr. Pear Head you used to have!

Psycotic Pineapple

psycotic pineapple

I used to have a crazy looking pineapple pencil topper when i was in elementary school. It was part of a set of other pencil toppers including a corn cob & an apple. Anyhow, it was very surprising to me when i was walking around Berkeley some time in the 80s & saw a show flier with the same pineapple pencil topper on it, with the name PSYCOTIC PINEAPPLE. This connection & the great art from the band's bass player John Seabury create the obscure ephemeral feeling i am obsessed with.

Psycotic Pineapple are still around in some form or another as PYNOMAN.
Here's a bunch of Psycotic Pineapple gig posters.
You can download Psycotic Pineapple's 45 "I Wanna Get Rid of You"
You can download Psycotic Pineapple's "Where's the Party" LP.

They used to have shows at the Silver Ball? Oh MAN!

Sounds of Laughter

TSOL - Sounds of Laughter

The terrifying Edison silent Frankenstein movie.

Also, trailers for classic Frankenstein & Dracula. Make sure to watch these this Halloween type season.

For a great treatise on the old-fashioned horror & the concepts contained therein, make sure to read Supernatural Horror in Literature by H. P. Lovecraft.

Getting ready for Halloween. Frankenstein

Frankenstein's Monster - The Modern Prometheus. Friend to the children, enemy of the mindless middle-class mob. Shocked into existence.

Philosophy & Theory

Word from the Wisdom Alliance (2/10, Emerald Hand, the Masked Men, etc)

BRAIN STORM: Cracking open your brain like an egg & scrambling it.
Gorillas & bananas.
Put a face on it.
Wear your weapons.
Self-haters will definitely be you haters.
Frankenstein & Pinocchio: separated at birth.
Do it by hand.
The only problem with garbage is that you don't want it. Make garbage people want & it's not a problem anymore.
Thriving sea-monkey colonies soothe the savage beast.
UFO Cereal.
Cereal boxes should transmit wisdom & knowledge.
Venture out into the fog & meet the wild hunt at the park of lost America.
I might be agreeing with Gary Panter about the well-lit milk bar thing.
