WELCOME

Welcome. Glad to see you here in our world of strange fascinations. What do we find so strangely fascinating? Well, a lot of things, really. To sum it up...we're predisposed to the paranormal, attracted to the anachronistic, responsive to retro, passionate about pop culture, captivated by kitsch, orgasmic over the odd. This is our warehouse. Stay as long as you like. Scrawl something on the wall (we'd really like that). Just don't open that door over there behind the life size cardboard cut-out of Agent Dale Cooper. Why? Never mind. Just don't. Unless, of course, you've always wanted to be the subject of a "weird news" headline.

Velkommen. Glad for at se Dem her i vores verden på en mærkelig hensyn. Hvad ser vi så mærkeligt Fascinerende? Godt, en masse ting, virkelig. Til sidst det up...we »ad været tilbøjelig til at se, tiltrukket af det utidssvarende, lydhør over for refleksanordninger, lidenskabeligt om POP kultur, påtage ved kitsch, orgasmic over mærkeligt. Det er vores lager. Ophold så længe man vil. Scrawl noget på væggen (vi fortsat virkelig gerne høre).

OI! PSSST. HAVE YOU MET OUR MASCOT? DON'T MIND THE GOOGLY EYES.
Yeah, she's definitely creepy with that unsettling gaze trained on the camera courtesy of those big, googly eyes, but from the moment we saw her pallid mug in the musty pages of "Wisconsin Death Trip", Michael Lesy's 1972 cult classic compendium of death, disease, disaster and degradation in 1890s Black River, Wisconsin, we knew that this nameless vixen of yore would forever have a stranglehold on what passes for our heart. And, of course, she's perfect for this dark and shamelessly skewed blog. If we had the time and the focus, we'd have T-shirts made that said "I suck the life out of Cheeseheads, Go Packers!" But, luckily, we have adult ADD and will never do it. Including her eerie little face in our blog is the best we can do. We just hope that our readers appreciate our creepy little friend as much as we do. In fact, we feel a poll coming on...





CLOCKS ROCK! But...Aufpassen! We Will Not Be Responsible For Wasted Hours, Minutes, Or Intentions.
Oh, yeah....we have a theme song. Two, in fact. And a whole lot of back-up possibilities. (Videos are down below.)

Rock and Roll Remainders


Short post this week because we're uber busy, profoundly exhausted, and convinced that we may very possibly die before finishing this post, and we'd like to get to our next shot of peppermint schnapps before we expire. So, then, the following are what we consider some of the more interesting and, in some cases, unsettling images from our personal storage vault of rock and roll remainders.
These milk bottles have nothing to do with rock and roll. We just
really like old milk bottles and want to see more of them in as many irrelevant
posts as possible
. We feel the same way about old fashioned ice cream parlor things.
And yet we would rather die than let a drop of milk touch our lips!

Iggy Pop's audition for Burger King?
Debbie Harry: Black boots and black roots, circa 1980

Look at Stephen Still's shirt. Now, be honest. Could you love the one you're with...if  it was him? In that shirt? Wonder if his taste was always this bad, or if getting older has somehow claimed his better judgment,










Two Girls and a Cup: Debbie Harry and a young Joan Jett
discuss Joan's bad taste in beer.
Tina Turner and Janis Joplin belt it out before
heading to Nutbush in their Mercedes Benz
Debbie and Joan give The New York Dolls tips on nail
polish and other feminine nuances that, ultimately, will
not keep the Dolls from breaking up a year or two later,'
just as the music trend they started becomes huge and
their imitators reap big bucks while they are reduced
to footnote in history status.

Chrissy Hynde, singer and guitarist for the Pretenders, a self-righteous vegetarian, and the sexiest woman and man in rock and roll..
Chrissy Hynde as Steven Tyler with less thick lips

Currently playing: Chrissy and Debbie as old chicks
with still youthful licks.
Jimi Hendrix explaining to The Monkees all of the reasons
that he feels ridiculous performing as their opening act.

Jimi Hendrix explaining to The Who all of the reasons
that they should find a new hairdresser.


John Taylor, bassist for Duran Duran and our absolute
number one hearthrob from the annals of rock and roll.
Even now, with less hair and a grimace.

Lita Ford, heavy metal rock goddess showing us some
things we can do with a guitar while not playing it.

Such as this....
Ach! Mein Gott...get a room, Lita.

You, too, Tricia...

Lovely Linda Ronstadt in her salad days
And now...in her cheesecake days. Oh, Linda. We loved you.


And last but not least, classic Stevie Nicks....

.......as we like to see her...... 

08/26/2011 - Stevie Nicks -
....and now.


                                Remember.......we love you, even if your mother doesn't.
