If Obama allows the torturers to skate, I will never forgive him.

Nite Owl... 

Happy Birthday Captain Sensible!!!
Born Raymond Burns, the good Captain is 55!

Everytime I've seen The Damned, the Captain has been amazing.

The first time I saw them was in Los Angeles in '86 on the Phantasmagoria tour and Roman Jugg, more than adequately, took the guitar seat.

Since then I've seen the Damned another four times with the good Captain and everytime they were better than the last! The Captain's brand of punk, psychedelia and pop still holds up for me and of the three punk majors - the Sex Pistols and the Clash being the other two - The Damned have always been my hands down favorite.

I've seen the Captain's nuts, cock and arsehole and he's spat gum on me even... but what I always took away from those shows was the sound of his guitar in my head. A crunchy, skyscraping whine or watery psychedlic landscape - usually in the midst of some elegant chaos between the band and the crowd, are but two of the many memories I have of the Captain's great playing over the years.
Happy Birthday and Cheers!

Captain goes solo... Wot?!

Dear Stevie,

Happy Fifth Anniversary Captain Smith!
Spock, the "boys" and I want to say "keep it up", Way Up! (Ha Ha- <;{0)

We of the SS Enterprise have loved getting cranked up and checking you out! We wanna say we look forward to another five years of intergalactic poundings from you!!! If you ever get down to the Tide Pools by the Felcher Moons then call Sulu and we'll beam you aboard for fun & frolix, but only after Dr. Bones gives you a full exam!

All the best,

Smithantics is Five 

This blog was born five years ago today!

While I struggle these days to maintain the fire that led me to start this blog, I’ll take that struggle over having Rethugs in power, ripping apart my fucking soul. I think this has been a good place for us to hang out and vent and laugh. Let’s keep it going.

The Progressive Pastor 

He’s part of the new breed of evangelical Christians. He drives a hybrid, hangs out with Democrats, and hates fags.

Cock Sucker 

Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

It’s pieces of shit like this that will keep this blog alive.

Guys, I’m really hard pressed to come up with good blog posts these days. The main driver of this blog was BushCo outrages, and now, thankfully, BushCo is gone. Still, I really don’t want to end the blog, but I also don’t want to phone it in.

I'm gonna think on it some more....
