institutionalized







Well mateys, the open road calls again; I'm heading back up
to the Wilds to make sure the geezers are still alive, with a swing
through Boston on the way home to meet with new colleagues.
That's right, little Slothy snagged a position as dominatrix at a fine norf*ckeneastern institootion of higher learning starting this fall.
The future is looking bright, a golden road paved by the tears of mine own Selfish Little Takers®, with scenic views of Poverty Junction and Panic Attack City.

See you in a few days! Good news: there's finally an internet café in Ptown, so I will try to check in blogside. (I asked Corny why, as Dictator of the World, she hasn't established coast-to-coast universal WiFi yet... she said she'd have to get back to me on that.) In the meantime, I will leave you with this fascinatin' link. I found the Freddy Mercury photo (on page 2) to be especially poignant. You'll see what I mean.

Sloth, have a great time, and knock 'em dead in Boston! It's gonna go great next year.

And yeah, Demi Moore. . . wow. Something's definitely not right there.

Hi chums! I'm about to jet.

The pics of the dead ones get to me -- John Lennon, Kurt Cobain...

There's something eerie about the way they all look like themselves, but not. You can tell George Clooney was a little heartbreaker. Tom Cruise was a dork.

Best part about these pics? The copyright? Crimson Moon! OMG. LOL. PIMP!

I know, HAA, hilarious. The moon, she is full.

 
At 10:23 AM, Blogger JD said...

Yeah, the crimson moon lady needs to be discussed. She is very severe.

Hi HAA! I saw a Soundstage concert last night on TeeVeee that you would have liked. It had African, Indian, and heavy-metal Japanese musicians, as well as Pharoah Sanders. And Bootsy Collins!

Tom Cruise IS a dork.

Congrats Slothy! Excellent news!

FYI - Bjork hasn't changed.

jd, I love Pharoh Sanders and Bootsy Collins!
But how did poor Freddie Mercury make it through school with those teeth? I mean, he couldn't even close his mouth around them.
But more importantly, congratulations, Slothy!

But that lady in the first picture is bumming my stone.

Oooh. Thanks JD. Must catch it. It's the Bill Laswell Axiom/Material/Praxis axisphere. And BUCKETHEAD!!! How can you not love a shredder with a KFC bucket on his head. And Zakir Hussein. OMG. Killer line-up. Bill Laswell. The only man to have worked with William Burroughs, Flavor Flav, AND Lemmy. Color me all salivatory and shit. To this day, one of the most devestating shows I've ever seen was with this crew playing inside the Anchorage of the Brooklyn Bridge. I had nightmares for months.

heart as arena, will you love Team Shredder if we surf with KFC buckets on our heads?
I love the beige "Sears Portrait" backround they chose for the harsh mistress's photo shoot. Very sexual and kinky.

hello from ptown... I have seen the moon, and it is certainly round and mottled. perhaps this is the rationale?

dad put gasoline in the bird bath this morning... oops! wrong can!

 
At 3:32 PM, Anonymous dubz said...

mom caught it in time... it's the Demento Family Hour out here. The median age is about 90.

I'm going to go lose myself in some plumbing work now. I've donned my special pants just for the occasion.

missin you guys...

 
At 3:43 PM, Blogger sloth said...

p.s. dubz, I've been googling those Pam and Angelina pics, but my computer froze and suddenly my spam folder is filled to capacity...? not sure why.

TS, I would love you if you wore an empty Cup O' Noodles cup for a cap!

it is morning morning again here at beige.. are you back sloth? heh row. HAA, it is weird that you mention buckethead. Arthur was telling me about his outfit, the KFC bucket and kubuki mask or something, which i was sure he was making up. But apparently not.

sloth, if your pa gives you a glass of water make sure you smell it first from now on. just sayin.

i just 'got' the crimson moon

 
At 1:26 PM, Blogger JD said...

Hi FB, yes, I can attest to the buckethead phenomenon. He is also totally expressionless and robotic, and plays a combo of arty feedbacky and straight-ahead heavy metal. Is he Japanese, HAA? Hard to tell. Weird dude; he's somehow hard to look away from.

 
At 2:25 PM, Blogger The Capt'n said...

Yeah, I just got the "crimson moon" thing, too.
I can't remember, is it Denny's that features the "Moon over my Hammy" platter?

Buckethead is from the midwest, and by all accounts he's a really sweet guy. Under Laswell's wing he's learned how to be both mercenary and artistically pure at the same time. Perfectly willing to be a hired hand for G'n'R and equally comfortable telling Axl to fuck off when the time has come. And well, then there's Buckethead's own music. Pretty much whatever the hell it wants to be whenever it wants to be, and he's got the goods to play whatever it is that that might be. Total ruleage.

And that bucket and mask. On one hand his chops are rock star, but his get-up makes him anonymous. And although the mask and bucket make for a creepy visage, the fact that it's a KFC BUCKET make it hilarious and absurd. He is nothing if not our dreamscape.

He's probably the only artist to have played with both William Ackerman and Ol' Dirty Bastard.

Speaking of which, DO NOT MISS Buckethead's musical tribute to ODB.

Whoa, HAA, good stuff! thanks.
