Sonntag 17 Oct 21 (JOHN KEEGAN'S BIRTHDAY!) Titane.
345 pm. senior price: $12. Cinema Francais; M. Laurent Bigot (Ugly
Things auteur!) parley por moi; "a great one
like her first" (RAW, 2016). I SHALL agree though Miss Lyn
laughed at the camp horror bits. Young girl gets in car wreck, has
titanium in her head. grows up to do exotic dances on cars; stalked
by fan whom she kills with hair pin. gets pregnant FROM a car. Commits
mass murder as Caterina Caselli (MUCHO amore!) sings "Nessuno
Mi Puo Giudicare" (youtube)
so she goes on lam , chopping off hair and binding breasts with
ace bandage. Passes as a missing child years later whom was from
a fire captain who shoots steroids. THEN, as drag king, joins el
capitain's fire department! Captain's ex-wife sees "son"
naked, as does captain (hey! lotsa full-frontal French nudity for
all you Gizmos fans!) whom both declare love to each other, iregardless.
The grateful Dead sang "what's become of the baby", so
the young killer lady breaks water only it's motor oil! (My father
the Car?) Dies in childbirth but L'Enfant has titanium spine and
is covered in motor oil! FIN! And I thought Eraserhead was fucken
weird...which means: catch it if you can!"... (WOW!!! -

Monntag 18 Oct 21 (Solomon Gruberger: 70 IF license plate). 730
PM, $8 senior, Somerville thee ate her, Halloween Kills.
The word from Constantinople; both Aybike Celik Ozbey and
Boji the dog say: "Evet! Git!" which, in Turkisch,
is "yes! Go!". That Halloween franchise
does still put chills on me (no siesta for this Senor citizen Ken!
total occupancy: Count Five!). Gore/slash and to Michael Myers:
"come and get me moddafocka!" SO let's highlight on a
tri-fecta of music. There's an open mike in a bar: Levesque Triplets
as the Singing Triplets! (they have their own Wikipedia
page!). There's a ventriloquist act singing Benny Bell's "Shaving
cream"! (and he's pretty bad too; GONG HIM DANNO!). BUT the
camp factor is a same-sex couple name Big John and Little John whom
have moved into Michael Myers boyhood home. Big John is upstairs
dancing to "stop look and listen (it's Halloween)" 45
which IS on youtube. The other vinyl reference is Jamie Lee Curtis's
descendants walking upstairs and seeing Big John/Little John kilt
and laid out lovingly as a vinyl album with Ann Muraay "may
I have this dance for the rest of my life" spins on a TURNTABLE;
this 1980 45 WAS on the Urban Cowboy soundtrack which was current
to the 1978 Halloween. Halloween Kills
VINYL is on sale New berry Comix for $28 if you REALLY feel the
urge to collect it. Again as Aybike and Boji the dog say: "Evet!

Dienstag 19 Oct 21; Dad's father John Wilbur McBee died 1966 near
Eight Mile Road, Dee-troit, but we aint watchin that movie, we watching
The Velvet Underground, KENdall Sqaure
Thee-ate-er, Cambridge, Massachusetts 720 PM and it's Seven Dollar
Tuesday there! FIRST person I thought of was Hopelessly Obscure
bassist Jim "Winning Side" Condon (my Best Mann when I
married my Best Bette and cuzzin Linda garreau whose mother bought
her a copy of Loaded when she was "Princess of the
Trailer Park"). "At the Rat" about '83, KENgratulations
were in order coz Jim was in some velvet book; Uptight,
maybe? What DID I learn?: SOME folks. micelf included, liked BOTH
the Grateful Dead and the Velvet Underground; the velvets people
HATED the Mothers (sorry, I will "Argue with ghosts' on that)
and velvets, in black, HATED all that califawnia sunshine/Flower
Power bit, predating Sex Pistols by a decade. Appearance by Lou
reed's sister! LOTS of Warhol Factory folks that Jim "winning
side" Condon had tracked down and befriended, so I heards lotsa
drunken/stoned tails on all. "heard her call my name"
in the thee-ate-er made "my mind split open".
The Pickwick records days; Greg Shaw in Bomp:
"if anything the Gizmos sound like the Primitives" BUT
I forcefed all Future/Gizmos White Light/White Heat two
dollar copies with "I wanna sound like this!" (James
Taylor and I share the same Eno Hugenot ancestor, so I formed
the gizmos and he formed the Flying Machine!). Mo Tucker is my
facebook friend and Joe Vig VIG-eo taped me meeting Lou reed.
Who steals the show? "there's something about Jon Richman!"
"I had a friend had the velvets album, so I traded him my
Fugs album"...a tale I heard from Pep "I stayed on Mo
Tucker's couch" Lester, whom I met at a COUNT PARADISE rocknroll
Not-so-Spectacular (though Philip "Milhouse" DID bootleg
me for Pep Lester and pals or some such). Also, from Jon:"Sterling
Morrison taught me how to play guitar', so if I and Frank of the
Cornwall Rowes (my mother decends from Berkshire Rowes ole chap)
jammed with Jon the once, that's one step closer to the velvets!
(Lou's handshake was so fuggin' LIMP that I had to put der sturm
und drang into my cover of "white light white heat")...one
last MOSt important note: Jon's friend with Fugs album', as told
by Pep and himself WAS Mister Jay Dobis, now a resident of Turkey,
whom turnt me onto Reptilians from Andromeda....Boji the dark
barks about this movie: "Evet! Git!" ("yes! Go!"
in both Turkish and dog; ready to disperse Aybike Celik Ozbey's
cat gang in Constantinople!"
Aybike Celik Ozbey's

day of Wodin 20 October 21. Kendall Cinema roulette with my eight
dollar passes von arbeit. 650 pm: Shang-Chi and the
Legend of the Ten Rings. Recommended by a Cambodian-American
co-worker "special effects; martial arts" ("swimmin'
pools? movie starz?) it's a marvel comix movie (I bought a Hulk
comic when they buried my father on L. reed's birthday and then
the banana album came out, but Kenny was more into Marvel in 1967
(age 10) versus 1973 velvets ("At 17"!). As for the martial
arts, I said Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon AND THAT actress
is the "ant' (Rochester ax- cent) of the two kids. There's
a maze through a forest ala Labryinth and weird fuggin' never
ending story critters; google a "hundun"! ("Morris"
is on Wikipedia; "a legendary faceless being"; lots of
Chinese lore in this!). The LADIES are kickass in this with martial
arts stunts and maybe I'll leave you ith this: "you are all
from those whom have came before"; such ancestor worship ONLY
means: "I believe in reincarnation"! I saw this movie
straight-edge, but keep the mushrooms at home man..."Mary don't
take me on no bad trip"!"....

day of Thor 21 oct 21. Davis Square theater seven pm $8 senior discount
til 935 pm of Dune! A Buffalo NY marine
lent me the book about '78 and I'd read it on guard duty (recording
Moin World on weekends off!) so all I can say is "epic' sci-fi,
kinda Star Wars-y etc. special effects yeah yeah yeah. BUT what
made "my mind split open" was I had WMBR 88.1 Breakfast
of Chimpanzees on and I went Ape hearing the Primitives "Do
the Ostrich"! FOLLOWED by "European son", banana
album (Bananas ARE the Breakfast of Chimpanzees!) and my "I
still owe 23 payments and $300" Apple phone ONLY broadcast
the Ostrich guitar through the lil phone speaker, Lou's vocals were
as obscure as a vocals/ instruments Beatles mix of left/right channel...Decision;
Lou's Ostrich Guitar was like Bo Diddley meets happy the Clown!
Which leads to Schmel herbie Hind posting on wall:
"elvis was murdered" on Coast to Coast. If you REALLY
wanna hear this one, Elvis was too constipated to have had heart
attack in toilet! A lotta bad gastric issues, bad diet, peanut butter
and banana sandwiches et al. MAYBE it's on Coast to Coast youtube
archives or some such..So Dead Elvis, Dead Lou but they WERE alive
Fiddy years ago when I listened to early RCA Elvis and/or Velvet
Undeground "In my room", 8452 Ridge Road Brockport NY,
Ridge Road being an old Indian trail..."Useless Information"
by the Move! ("isn't it amazing")"...
