Hookers or Cake

Where the self-obsessed get serious about silly
I'm too wacky to be hip.

    • ------------------------------------- How this blog got its name

      ------------------------------------ There was a large painting of Evel Knievel shaking hands with Richard Nixon. It hung in the Mayors office. Late one evening after everyone went home. I took it down to the lab. I zoomed in on Evel’s left eye a 100x and enhanced it. It was an address. I went to the address. It was a modest, 1970’s style, split level ranch home in the suburbs.

      ----------------------------------- Inside I found a dead parrot lying on a waterbed. I revived the parrot with some saltines and adrenaline. We became good friends. The parrots name was Randy. One night a few years later while Randy and me played Gin Rummy, he sang me a song about a fire. The title of this blog was never mentioned but I sensed it, and Randy confirmed it by giving me ‘THE LOOK’.

            Iggy & the Stooges 1970 - vid starts with some 50 yr-old suit talking about this crazy, new music and he peppers in some commentary throughout the performance - the highlight is Iggy crowd surfing as only he can and the commentator saying “That’s Peanut Butter,” as Iggy takes a jar of peanut butter from the audience and smears it all over his chest.

            Hop in to about 4:10 if yer impatient but be sure to catch the first few moments of commentary.
