So, right before I woke up this morning, I had a dream about net neutrality...

...in the dream, I was in a room or office or such, and I heard a voice say "oh look, it's Ajit Pai."

Next thing I know, Ajit - who looks like a really young-20-something-Japanese-guy, NOT what the actual Ajit Pai looks like - comes up to me and sez: "Here, take this" as he hands me a packaged-in-a-plastic-bubble-black-disc which looks like a flat, circular refrigerator magnet about the size and thickness of a quarter.

He sez: "Stick this to your laptop" (I don't have one in real life, but I do in this dream) - "and it will play what you need to see."

The content from the black disc was a video of a woman sitting in a chair, in full left side profile, being stripped of her clothes by unseen forces - like powerful winds - and then it zoomed in on the left side of her face, which was covered by massive amounts of what appeared to be acne.

Not sure what it means, but it was fuckin weird! Kinda like a Dali crawling ants thing.

I usually don't remember my dreams, but this one was very memorable, in a disturbing way.

I did, however, think that a "digital magnet" device was a pretty cool idea.

Happy New Year.

"Here Comes Christmas" by my band Green Sparkle Frog...

...from the 2012 release Die Happy & Other Songs About Life.

Earlier today I voted for Bernie!

Not sure if this was already mentioned here, but Bernie is up for a Grammy in the Spoken Word category.

Actually, it's Bernie along with Mark Ruffalo, for Our Revolution: A Future to Believe In.

Today was the last day to vote for the 60th Grammy Awards, which will happen on January 28 at Madison Square Garden in New York.

As a Grammy voter, it was my great pleasure to vote for Bernie, even if it was just for a Grammy and not for President.

So I was just on Youtube listening to The Byrds performing...

...a live version of "Lover of the Bayou" from 1970, and had thought, after that, I'd search for The Mamas & Papas song Twelve Thirty.

I looked over to the right side of the Youtube page, where they have links to other stuff, and I saw:

"Recommended for you" The Mamas & Papas Twelve Thirty.

How did "they" know?!

"Rich People Suck" by former Captain Beefheart/Magic Band drummer...

...Robert Williams - as Beefheart Jr - from the album Temporarily Immortal

Robert was the drummer in Captain Beefheart's Magic Band when they recorded and toured to promote the albums Shiny Beast (Bat Chain Puller) and Doc At The Radar Station.

Also from the album Temporarily Immortal

"Beautiful Sunday"

GERMS Retrospective at the Fullerton Museum Center...

This is Jaime GERMS Zacarias, not the L.A. punk band -although Jaime was officially given the "Germs Burn" by Don Bolles several years ago.

I have contributed over 50 pieces to this GERMS landmark show.

This will be the first time I will be able to see a lot of of my Germs collection at one time, so I'm very excited about that!

It's rare, I think, for a 36 year old artist to have a museum retrospective, but, there it is.

The show will include the Germs Lamps (which I art directed/produced) and other artists' collaborative works w/Germs, including an etching with aquatint by my son, Abe K.

BTW The Fullerton Museum Center is the home of the Leo Fender Gallery. So a double treat!!


Is street artist BANKSY Robert Del Naja of Massive Attack?

Or are they just "mates"?


Is the lead singer of Massive Attack BANKSY?

Has his secret identity been exposed?
