OMG!!!! The Robot Revolt Begins!!!!

I knew it! Thank goodness I read all the old Magnus comics!

(Thanks for the link, Chris!)

Ozzy sings Mr. Crowley


John performs Instant Karma

Very cool. I remember listening to this all through the early Spring of '70 - this and Frigid Pink covering House of the Rising Sun!

Shocking Blue perform Venus

I always liked this song.

I love guys who have more money than sense. So, Mr. Fancy Pants Millionaire "Audiophile" Doktor dropped twelve grand on JUST a pair of speakers so he could listen to simple music downloads?!? ..Snort.....Sniffle......Giggle......BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hey Doc, I got a formula one racer here for you to handle the drive-thru window at McDonalds! While we're at it, let me sell you some gold leaf toilet paper and maybe a whoopee cushion made from mink. In the famous words of Bugs Bunny - What a maroon! Dr. Patel, I've got a bridge to sell you that you're just gonna love!

(For those of you not in on the joke - EVERYTHING about digital music in this article is at least twenty years old, the idea that there's someone out there who claims to be seriously into music, (or at the NYT), who is just figuring this out, is pretty pathetic.)

the touch screen computer

Hmmm, I wonder. There's no denying the impressiveness of the technology. But I have to kinda go with some of Pogues' comments about it not being practical for many computer functions. I also suspect that, as in so many things, acceptance will be greatest amongst the young who are exposed ONLY to it. Running my hands back and forth over a table top just seems like some sort of hi-tech version of finger painting to me, and pretty silly, to boot. (I admit to being somewhat reactionary in my personal tastes - I miss my dial phone!). And for anyone suffering from Essential Tremor or Parkinsons, this new method will be pure torture. I also suspect it will be quickly surpassed - my own prediction would be a dual system using voice commands and a lens fitted over the eye (like a small screen placed on one lense of a pair of glasses), or some sort of eye reading beam projected from the computer screen itself. Still, if you're a deaf mute who likes finger painting, this should be just up your alley!

The Clash perform London Calling

Such a cool band...

Monsoon - Ever So Lonely

Probably the best fusion of Indian and Western pop music. Should've been huge. Their cover of Tomorrow Never Knows is classic.

Holly & The Italians - Youth Coup & Rock Against Romance

One of the lost greats from the 80's. Her debut album was one of the best. And her duet with Joey Ramone on I Got You Babe is classic.

True West - Steps To The Door!
Perfect psychedelic drone...

Jackson Browne - Running On Empty (with a little help from Bruce)

Ah, the summer of '78. A perfect song to go tearing down Indian Head Highway to. One of those tunes that's works well on an AM radio and very prescient lyrics for those of us with a hovering gas guage and one too many idiot lights flashing on the dashboard...

Gary U.S. Bonds - Quarter To Three
One of the great frat rock anthems.

Liz Phair performs Fuck & Run
Poor recording, great song.

Nine Inch Nails and Peter Murphy cover Dead Souls!

My fave Joy Division song performed by two artists that they heavily influenced. Cool...

The Drifters - Saturday Night At The Movies
Through a variety of lineup changes, I think these guys remained one of the best doo wop groups.

DC Needs A Slogan!

With all due respect to Wonkette, I really feel that the best and only slogan for our fair city is Mayor-For-Life Marion Berry's immortal words: "Bitch Set Me Up!". I'd just love to see that on all the license plates and welcome billboards.

a monument to Heydrich's assassins

LONG overdue...

HMT Rohna & the German "smart bomb"

Chad Vader, Episode 8!!!

Memorial Day

Unlike so many holdiays and occasions, I can't bring myself to say "Happy Memorial Day!"; it seems to me that that would come across as something stupid or obscene. It's an interesting date for several reasons - because it doesn't lend itself to easy commercialism, it honors the dead, and while there are ceremonies and parades, (especially around here), it seems to me that it favors most an individual interpretation. And it can be a source of questioning as well as rote ritual.
A quick search on the Internet will reveal many articles and speeches regarding the Day. This is a recent one I chanced upon that I enjoyed.

Mary Chapin Carpenter - This Shirt

Another of DC's finest, and an almost supernaturally perceptive poet.

Nils Lofgren - Moontears

DC's finest!

The Stones - Gimme Shelter

Sublime danger...

The Angels - My Boyfriend's Back
Fun stuff!

Link Wray - Rumble

DC's own...

The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly
A great opening to one of my fave films starring three of my fave actors and featuring what may be the best film title song of all time, (by the brilliant Ennio Morricone). Everything about this production is Essential...

Shiver me timbers....
Arrr, the freedom of the Seven Seas and the salt spray in your Silver Spring?!? I guess they speak of their adventures with Davy Jones' Fire Hydrant...

This WILL be me someday, maybe tomorrow...

Happy Birthday Stevie Nicks!

Happy Birthday Marion!

1910 Fruitgum Company - Indian Giver

I don't care. I love this song!

13th Floor Elevators - You're Gonna Miss Me
Classic. Essential. (Yes, that's an electric jug, the second coolest psychedelic instrument ever (after the sitar...)). Poor Roky - Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad.

The Cramps cover The Green Fuzz

Green Fuzz is one of the great lost rock'n'roll records, originally recorded by someone named Randey (sic) Alvey on a 45 so obscure that I doubt anyone owns it and with such terrible sound quality that it sounds as if a cardboard box was placed over the mic during the recording. It is one of the greatest rock songs ever made, (in my not so humble opinion). It was thankfully rescued from total oblivion by being reissued on one of the old Pebbles collections, (which are themselves now collector's items); and from there we get this cover by those masters of the dangerous and the obscure - The Cramps. This video has nothing to do with any of the above, but it is a nice collection of old Weird Tales covers and somehow it seems totally appropriate that one more strange little kink be added to the glory and the legend that is The Green Fuzz...

Klaus Nomi covers Lightning Strikes
Once you hear this version, you just can't go back to Lou Christie...

(Whenever I play this tune, Linda can't get it out of her head for days....)

Al Stewart - On The Border

Good ol' Al; who else would/could do a pop song on the Spanish Civil War?

Aretha - RESPECT!


The Sisters of Mercy - Temple of Love

Neat goth dance music.

Hogzilla II

I believe this is how most monster movies begin...

video of the Stones' Sympathy For The Devil

The Kinks perform Waterloo Sunset

Beautiful song.

Features DJ's and ads from that time. Very cool.

Happy Birthday Douglas Fairbanks, Sr.!

Transvision Vamp - Baby I Don't Care

One of the great under-rated power pop bands. I think only reocrd clerks knew about these guys. Wonderful band, knew what riffs to steal, and when...

The Association - Windy

It is difficult to believe that it's been 40 years almost to the day that I first heard this played on WPGC. The Association were never considered a particulalry hip band - but I always like them and their harmonies, and this was my fave song by them. It's a beautifully innocent little tune that perfectly reflects a gentle time in my life. (And for what it's worth, the band wasn't all that out of touch - they had what I believe was the first Top 40 hit about smoking grass - Along Comes Mary...).

REM & Bruce - Man On The Moon

Wonderful....Two explorers of the American psyche meet in the emotional wilderness. Dr. Stipe, I presume?

Five Stairsteps - Ooh Child

One of the great soft soul songs...

Inkubus Sukkubus - Wytches
One of the great neo-pagan bands out there.

Moody Blues perform Nights In White Satin

One of my faves. Perfect for a slow Spring night...

Another very cool band.

a nice collection of performances by The Turtles
Wonderful band. Flo & Eddie could really sing. I still remember the day back in '67 I walked into a little record store off Main Street in Montrose Colorado to pick up She'd Rather Be With Me, (along with Little Bit O' Soul by the Music Explosion). Very cool.

Jackie Wilson perform Baby Workout

Ow! Mr. Excitement!

The Honey Cone - Want Ads

Great group - should've been bigger.

The Chiffons perform One Fine Day

Great song for a Spring day...

The Saints - I'm Stranded

One of the great early Punk bands.

Sandra Lou - Le Banana Split

French girl-group bubblegum! Miniskirt and go-go boots, what more do you need?

neat "card trick"

WWII & a keen grasp of the obvious

Sigh. I'm getting pretty sick and tired of the myth that's once again stated in this article about the Eastern Front of WWII somehow being ignored or unknown. Perhaps among our historically uneducated public it is, (but then they don't know ANY thing about the war - who fought, who won, when it happened, where it happened, etc.). But amongst students of history, it's VERY well known. Russian archives and memoirs may have been difficult to come by, but the German sources weren't, (and many British historians have concentrated on this Front as well). I remember Bantam publishing several excellent studies and memoirs about it decades ago when I was in high school. Ballantine's famous series devoted many volumes to the conflict, as has Osprey in recent years. Hell, old wargame companies and mags often focused on the famous battles and campaigns in Russia. If you had enough money in the 70's you could buy one game that fought the entire campaign out at division/brigade level! Yet I keep reading pop pieces about "new & astounding revelations" that I knew from easily available sources 25 - 35 years ago! Just because John Wayne or Harrison Ford didn't make a movie about an event doesn't mean it's somehow hidden from those of us who are literate and interested in the topic. Let's take our eyes off the boob tube for a moment and at least try to raise the bar...
As for the author's mewling that nazis shouldn't die like they did at Stalingrad, I can only reply: My dear, that's EXACTLY how they should die..."

I Have Returned..

We had a nice time visiting with Linda's family (Thanks, Gail & Don!). The flight out to Chicago went well enough, if you don't count the thuggish insolence of the TSA personnel. I now know why Lorton Prison was closed - they got jobs out at Dulles.
At any rate, the weather was perfect and the company more so. When we returned to Dulles Airport, the taxi driver we got attempted to rip us off by ignoring my precies directions home and tried to take us ten miles and about forty traffic lights out of our way. I believe he was seeking vengeance for his grandfather's defeat at Rourke's Drift. Well, they lost again.

As a full-fledged fan of Beanie & Cecil, I used to wear one of these. The "official" version was (I think), plastic and the rotor had a pull string that could make it fly off, (where it would promptly lodge itself on the roof, in a tree, etc.). Very cool.

Well, we seem to be experiencing the first of Summer here at the Manor. The humidity is already in the swampy range and persperation is gathering on my glass of Pimm's Cup.

Religious Persecution!

Does no one respect the Old Ways anymore? Can't someone perform a simple hideous human sacrifice to Cthulhu without fear of interruption? Why, even here in Northern Virginia it's becoming nearly impossible to conduct obscene rituals on blasted heaths, gibbering insane and obscene oaths, and calling down dark and loathsome beings from the cold vastness of space without some busybody intevening. And I don't even remember the last time we had a human sacrifice without some sort of unpleasantness from the police. I tell you, blaspheming occultism sure isn't what it used to be. We need a return to tradional values!

Orpheus - I Can't Find The Time

It's a very pretty Spring morning here at the Manor and I am once again reminded of more innocent times. This is a perfect song for such. "I Can't Find The Time" is one of those tunes that when you mention it to folks my age, they tend to claim ignorance of it. But then you play it for 'em and you get, "Oh! I remember this!". One of the great soft rock love songs. Very pretty and almost forgotten now. I will leave it to each of you to interpet that...

The fact that this is almost completely unknown in the Sates is to our everlasting shame - one of the greatest pure rock'n'roll songs ever.

Mary Chapin Carpenter (and some friends) - Hard Way

DC's Finest. Period. Essential.

Chicago - Beginnings
It's probably impossible for younger readers to believe this, but in the '69-'71 era, Chicago was considered quite hip, even cutting edge. Those first three LP's were monsters! Beginnings is probably my second favorite song by them.

Jimmy Ruffin - What Become of the Broken Hearted
Another under-rated talent.

Cream - Strange Brew

Manfred Mann - Fox On The Run

A classic version of a classic song. In the early days of the Birchmere, (when it was in a narrow storefront out behind Shirlington), you'd go in and it always seemed like whoever was on stage was always playing this...
