Sic semper tyrannis, Mideast flavor

 This looks good to me. It's Saturday. Let's see an old dead guy in a rug.

Yassir Arafat's final landing. Hey, it's like that scene in Miss Saigon.

Ramallah 11/12/2004
As of September 2011, Miss Saigon is still the eleventh longest-running Broadway musical in musical theatre history.

"Would you like a piece of me?" Apparently yes, they did.  Ruhollah Musavi Khomeini splayed to rest, AKA Grand Ayatollah, June 4, 1989.

The Fascist Insect

Whilst reading the NYT magazine, I came upon a story about a rebirth of vinyl.
A former corporate attorney and CEO, Vince Slusarz, left his water processing equipment position in 2008 and decided to be about pressing vinyl records.
Read the actual story here...

I understand that there is a hipster demo that is listening to and buying vinyl. Not Not Fun is a LA label that specializes in vinyl and cassettes and one of their bands stayed at my house but then the broke up. But it wasn't my fault.

Back to Cleveland where Vince has his company. One of his employees, Mitch Ribis is an Iraq war veteran and has a "noise-rock band" or  "down-tempo / industrial," Or "noise-worship Industrial/Doom." It is called  Fascist Insect.

This t-shirt that hangs upstairs in no way attacks the nice, industrial doom band or any of their individual members.
The t-shirt is a project that me and my friends did while we were in our 20s.
The painting is unsigned.

60, a personal project

Recently, I left the basement to visit friends and family in San Francisco Bay Area.
The slide show has been banned by facebook because they objected to my recording of "The Sunny Side of the Street."
As many of you know, I do a spot on impression of Louis Armstrong and play very much in his style. True, I used a synthesizer for the rest of the combo.
Be that as it may, all individuals shown in this slideshow are actors who were cast as family and friends.

Enjoy...although it was shortened by google as well.
