Quick sharpie sketch of the great American director Samuel Fuller.
I had once the good fortune to see two documentaries about him at the Finnish film archives, followed by an interview with Sam (I can still smell the cigar in the theater) where he fielded questions about Full Metal Jacket and Baseball, followed by a screening of his superb White Dog.

Teenage Strangler

Here’s a song I wrote. Just in time for Halloween.

Teenage Strangler

Down in the alley behind Louie’s Bar
The strangler sees the weasel ogling out the bazaar
Sleazy like Soho, but no Ripper tonight
Nearby sound the sirens for a gang fight

……..The chains slam and rattle
……..The Strangler’s all astraddle 
……..Like tiger after cattle, ready for the squeeze
……..No! No! No!

Next day the papers say “The Strangler Strikes Again!”
But the Strangler goes to school, just another day
Tomorrow’s for the youth, so why not today?
The Strangler figures ‘time to make them adults pay.’

……..The kids yak and gamble
……..The froggie gets the scalpel
……..The Strangler’s hippocampal’s on a losing streak
……..Hop! Hop! Hop!

(instrumental break)

When the night comes around, back at Louie Louie
The Strangler’s after another, when the bullets start to fly
The lights flare up, out comes the press release:
"The Teenage Strangler’s shot down by the police"

……..The cops are in a huddle
……..The Strangler’s in a puddle
……..All couples in a cuddle now that the world is safe
……..Go! Go! Go!

"Teenage Killer!" scream the news next day
They’re selling all out, making plenty of hay 
Captain and the Chaplain and the Senator all pray
"Let’s let another loose, make it Judgement Day!"

……..Big brass won’t let go
……..All the kids now hear is “no!”
……..If tomorrow’s for the youth, so why not today?
……..If tomorrow’s for the youth, so why not today?

Another old Lou Reed drawing of mine, this time in pencil. From late 80s, looking at the Bockris/Malanga book UP-TIGHT, littered with great black and white photos.

H2O for Lack of CO³

kat330:


The First Lady’s advice about sufficient hydration should be heeded in particular now, because the Tea Bag (er, Party) Republicans are sucking US citizens dry.
