Where is Barber today? The new tv show.


The new Carmen Santa Ana?


Wouldn't that be Carmine in your case Steve? Your Carmen's Second Cousin.

Hey Frank

Saw this title in the Library this morning and thought of you.

Dead Kennedys: Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables the early years

By Alex Ogg
Art by Winston Smith
Photographs by Ruby Ray.

You can purchase a copy from

PM Press
PO Box 23912
Oakland, CA94633


Mr Ogg was hired to write the liner notes for the 25th anniversary edition of the title album, but that fell through. But, with Jello's help and approval it turned into a book. Ruby Ray was an amazing woman who managed to really get into the whole Punk thing here in SF. Did I mention this is a first edition?

I saw that book on our shelves here. Haven't really looked at it yet.

Guantanamo School of Medicine is his best stuff in many years. Somewhat commercial, at least for him:

Good take here about the idiocy of selfies:

Jello, it is fine, selfies are not cool.

Harlan would punch anyone doing a selfie. lol

Oh, and on Ferguson:

So much hate on an artform that's been with us for nearly as long as we've had art. Self portraits are a very respected and much practiced form of expression.

Now, if you actually watched the video you posted, you'd notice that Jello is railing against a very specific and incredibly intrusive version of the "selfie" (a word which absolutely abhor). When done well, a selfie can be very "cool" (my current avatar is a "selfie").

Granted, there a metric crap-ton of overly self indulgent selfies too. Happens with just about anything.

Defend popular culture, which is a culture, but selfies are mostly misused as is Twitter and much of the internet.

Frank, you are so full of bullshit, I'm surprised it hasn't left a lingering taste in your mouth.

Both the Arab Spring, and the overthrow of Mubaark, things you applauded when they happened, happened because of social medis. Twitter and Facebook in specific.

I love you too, but that's not an excuse for sloppy thinking on your part.

Social Media just is. It's the way that people use it that make it good or bad.

Frank can you explain what you're trying to say here? This is more of that nonsensical word salad that is hard to comprehend.

"Defend popular culture, which is a culture..." what does this even mean?

Popular culture is not seen as culture by snobs, not saying you are one. We are all pop culture militants.
