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

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

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!!

Who woulda known?!

I'm not gonna link directly to the piece of shit video at YouTube.

Senator Al Franken Grateful Dead Channel Takeover...

If you are subscriber to SiriusXM, next Tuesday, May 30, 2017, Senator Al Franken will "take over" the Grateful Dead Channel from 3:00 AM until 3:00 AM Wednesday, May 31.

From the promo I heard, he'll be playing live Dead shows that he attended, interviews with the band etc.

Should be interesting, and, knowing Senator Franken (no, not personally), highly amusing/entertaining.

This is not intended as SiriusXM spam, just a heads up to any DUers who like Senator Al and the Grateful Dead.

<Edited for clarity. Don't take the Brown Acid.>

Wow...apparently no one noticed the death of Chris Cornell...

...or whatever.

I don't know anymore.

RIP CC.

There will be less music in the future to appreciate without Chris.

Pasadena DUers: What are your thoughts on the March 7 election...

...for City Council? Specifically District 5.

The candidates are:

Victor M. Gordo, Aida Morales (although not sure if she will be on the ballot at this time), and Krystal Lopez Padley.

I have spoken to Gordo and Padley, I had no problem with what either of them said, but I am looking into their backgrounds to get a clearer picture of what to expect from them. I haven't been in Pasadena too long, so I believe this is the first City Council election I would've been able to vote in.

Gordo, the incumbent first elected in 2001, is an attorney and "Establishment Democrat" and has also served as Vice Mayor twice.

Padley is an unknown to me "small i independent," and I don't have any major issues with her stated positions on her "big 3" issues -public safety, infrastructure and education. I also know that she is not a Trump supporter, but neither is Gordo.

Anybody out there from Pasadena Dist. 5?
