"Political Suicide" Here is an old animated music video from my band...

...with animation by my friend and musical / graphics collaborator Brad Frost, from way back in 2008...which was never published before, until today.

I am not sure why...it just wasn't.

Fred Frith documentary...



For a distraction from the usual.

Here is a public access TV show I produced & co-directed in 1991...

...MOMMYGOD.

The band speaks only through their individual mothers.

One of them, Crying David, a background singer, is legless/armless/deaf/blind.

The rest of the band are weirder than him.

Their spokesperson is a rolling pin wielding aberration of Betty Crocker, on a cross.

There is a protest against death, the arrangement game, backstage band antics and more.

Artist Mark Ryden's "Daisy Bell" music videos...

...released in conjunction with Mark Ryden's "The Gay Nineties West" at the Kohn Gallery in Los Angeles, California.











Cross-posted to the Artists & the Musicians Groups.

After posting to those groups, I thought that there may be a few Loungers who may be interested in Mark Ryden and the musicians who contributed their work to his musical project.

Huffington Post article about my friend, the artist Germs...

...written by Rodrigo Ribera D'Ebre:

"The Modern-Day Salvador Dali"

ON EDIT: Link to GERMS web site - http://www.germs4u.com/

Please have a look at this Evangenitals music video!

They are a really great, contemporary Los Angeles based band.

Americana, Alt-Folk/Rock is how I guess I would describe them.

They're fucking great, IMO.

Turbulent Flow:

We just felt an earthquake here in Pasadena CA...

...didn't feel too strong, but I sure felt it.

For Los Angeles area DUers: GERMS vs Don Bolles, tomorrow afternoon...

If you're in the Echo Park area of L.A. TOMORROW afternoon (3/16, 4-9 PM), and you like really cool contemporary art (my friend/collaborator, GERMS, the artist), and "classic" L.A. punk rock, then you should go to this event:



GERMS will be exhibiting work and doing live painting, while Don Bolles, drummer of the legendary L.A. punk band, GERMS, provides the musical background.

Don used to run the sound at Cathay de Grande back in the early 1980s, when my band, The Hundredth Monkey, played there.

It's always cool to see Don again!

I'll be there, I'm the guy that looks like me (see the link in my sigline).
