Punk is Freedom

Never mind the bollocks, here’s the designer punk pumps and handbag. Huh? We’ve seen this before. The commodification of punk rock happened a long time ago, back when it all began in the 1970s. This almost always happens with zeitgeist moments. So, nothing should surprise me and my seen-it-all punk rock soul at this point. … Continue reading Punk is Freedom

Birthday Girl

You knew I had to write a little something in honor of the White Gold Queen herself, Michelle Pfeiffer, on her 64th birthday today, April 29, 2022. I’ve blithered on before about how happy it makes me to share a birthday month and zodiac sign with my favorite actress, so I’ll spare you further incessant … Continue reading Birthday Girl

Flipping the bird is one of life’s most … Continue reading Middle Finger Monday


For reasons unknown I’ve recently found myself basking in the seismic soundscapes of the Greatest Rock and Roll Band of All Time, Led Zeppelin. Okay, hold up, that’s not quite true. The part about “reasons unknown,” I mean. The part about greatest band ever might actually be true. You wouldn’t get an argument from me … Continue reading Zep

Hurricane Nomi

We knew nothing of Nomi Malone’s past, sordid or otherwise, when we signed the leggy, athletic, and disturbingly enthusiastic stripper—sorry, dancer!—for a residency at the Starfire Lounge. She mentioned something offhand about dancing in Vegas before she took the stage and shook her sweet ass for us. I don’t know if what she did was … Continue reading Hurricane Nomi
