it’s *nice* to have a girl around the house

raison detre, 2010/10/31 

Wearing Mr. Leggs pants will help you bag a tiger-lady… what do you need to wear to step on a cougar?!?

ater one look at his Mr. Leggs pants, she was ready to have him walk all over her. noble styling sure soothes the savage heart!

and this one… he was almost won over by her affection, so much so… but he came to his senses and… buried her up to her neck so she wouldn’t make any advances towards him and he wouldn’t be tempted by her…

read the copy for yourself

anyone ever wear these pants? this ad is from 1970, my sources say. seems amazing copy writers and art directors would push this upon the public and it was accepted. but then again….I can bring home the bacon, fry it up in a pan and never, never, never let you forget you’re a man…….cause I’m a woman…..Enjoli. had girls singing this and not understanding its implications at the end of that decade.

man… i think maybe they stopped selling these pants because women couldn’t control themselves around these pants and well, just think of where we’d be if men had to put women in their place constantly simply because of these pants!

It doesn’t get much more authentic than this


They were conveniently labelled as ‘punk rock’*, along with the Sex Pistols, but I knew better. I heard… something. And with the 1979 release of “London Calling”, my intuition was verified… This was not simply youth angst (although it was that) or a reaction against over-precious ‘progressive rock’ (although it was emphatically that as well)… This was good old raw hard-edged rock ‘n’ roll with a strong social (socialist!) conscience. With honest-to-god good songwriting and often (as here) inspired execution and delivery…

The sun breaks through… for a minute anyway…


Jon Stewart’s “Rally to Restore Sanity” in conjunction with Stephen Colbert’s “March to Keep Fear Alive” just got underway at the National Mall in Washington D.C. Kicking the festivities off with a BANG is The Roots (Jimmy Fallon’s ‘Late Night’ house band) led by (kick-ASS) drummer Questlove… and joined onstage by John Legend… They are INTO it and kickin’ some SERIOUS BOO-TAY children! Soundin’ real GOOD!

The Mall is PACKED and everyone’s smilin’ and groovin’ with posters like “Every word on this poster is spelled correctly.” and “I Respect Your Opinion”… It’s just gettin’ started of course, but what a great beginning! There’s a parallel event here in Seattle, but I suspect that’s just a bunch of folks in a bar watching TV, so I’m gonna watch the show from home. ;-}
Wow! Did I mention that the Mall is PACKED?!

Bless Stewart and Colbert!
Brings a little tear that maybe there really IS a little hope out there!

we ded not die
just flew high
on a guitar made right
modern hearts
summer cotton candy
every breeze an island
each touch tells
when the car sways in the tunnel
other lives
waiting quiet
until we see them
very soon
they’ll tell us where
the wheel turns to
cello sings
carbon rings
the print pressed in the sand
twelve of them
settle down
rocks fly
we can hold one
let it spin us out
to past

Civility… the good old days


Uncle Jim is an ‘edgy’ man…


On a lighter note, here’s one of Mystery Science Theater 3000’s very best shorts (IMHO)… Another of those unintentionally absurdist ‘Educational’ films; Mike, Tom and Crow take FULL advantage of the numerous opportunities presented by this 1960 slice of Americana to ‘milk’ dozens of laughs!
(select ‘Part 2’ along the bottom for the thrilling conclusion of this MST3K classic)… Enjoy!

Whatever it takes

Don’t know whether to gag or laugh… Could be a strange coalition that pushes this thing through.

Teabaggery Requires Thuggery.


And the Bagger Princess needs this radio DJ to be silenced.

The most telling minute of video yet. Truly shocking.

O’Donnell has threatened to sue this radio station for posting this clip — it may not last. The DJ is a conservative, BTW.
