Motörhead

Ladies and gentlemen, the circle is complete…

Now that Fast Eddie Clarke has gone to the great gig in the sky (RIP, good sir), the original Motörhead lineup is officially back together

Squeeeee.

Maybe they’ll let Mary jam with them sometime. Longshot, but you never know.

In Memoriam

4 Jan

 

Pomchi pistol Mary Poppins VanDyke Brown (age 10-ish) crossed over on January 3, 2017. She battled congestive heart failure for a year, and her tiny body was tired. It was a perfectly peaceful transition; she was in my arms.

From her hard-knock beginnings as an injured country stray to an anxious shelter resident to a lady of leisure and style with an editorial side job, Mary’s life ran the gamut. Loyal, loving, saucy, cantankerous… Mary was straight fire, and we’re lucky she came our way. 

Godspeed, lil’ red sass. Immense love to you. 

And now, the gargantuan photo retrospective… 

Please adopt, don’t shop. We’re grateful to Judy Babcock and Quixote Humane, Inc. for connecting us with Mary. 

Thanks to the incredible Dr. Karol Baughman and the kind, compassionate staff at Blue Cross Animal Clinic

We love you, Mary! See you on the other side, little lady.

Why Death Is an Ironic Mofo

Because Chuck Berry and Chuck Barris within a week, that’s why.

I just can’t with that. Flawless. I might fall over. Spot me. 

While Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds still take the cake, this is another wow moment for the death show, my friends.

Bon voyage to game-show guru and self-proclaimed CIA hitman, Chuck Barris.

Some people called him “The Baron of Bad Taste.” Haters. They were just jealous of his super-slick dance moves. Everyone knows that. 

Is Prince Freaking Out Right Now?

20 Mar

If you believe that life doesn’t end after this round, then Prince and Chuck Berry could be chatting right now, if Prince hasn’t stopped doing this yet because he’s so excited that Chuck showed up…

From middle-class beginnings to doing reformatory time for armed robbery to working janitor and auto assembly plant jobs to siring rock ‘n’ roll, Chuck Berry did a lot. Stellar run, Chuck. We bow and smile.

If you need any more reasons to love the hell outta Chuck Berry, here are five of them…

1. If you tried to give rock ‘n’ roll another name, you might call it Chuck Berry. — John Lennon

2. I never liked blues and I really didn’t like jazz. I liked Chuck Berry. — Johnny Ramone

3. Of all the early breakthrough rock and roll artists, none is more important to the development of the music than Chuck Berry. — Cub Koda

4. There’s only one true king of rock ‘n’ roll. His name is Chuck Berry. — Stevie Wonder

5. [My mama] said, ‘You and Elvis are good, son—but you’re no Chuck Berry. Chuck Berry is rock ‘n’ roll from his head to his toes’. — Jerry Lee Lewis

We Are Pulse

One love. Solidarity. We won’t let hate win.

Our hearts go out to all those affected by the Orlando tragedy.

Kudos to the Albuquerque Pulse community for the beautiful memorial in the old lot. You are loved.

And Now This…

1.) How did three months pass?

2.) How can Prince be gone? It seemed he’d sashay and slay his way through eternity. He is, just in a different form. What genius. Thanks, Prince.

3.) Gotta post more than memorials. We need some good grammar fails. Stay tuned…

Really, January 2016?
