Focus on the Family is “Afraid” of Obama…

Focus on the Family has got their granny panties all in a bunch over Barack Obama.

Colorado’s Focus on the Family is feeling uneasy at the thought of an Obama Presidency. A quick search of FOTF’s website turns up no less than 423 articles on Barack Obama, most attempting to misrepresent Obama’s views on Abortion and “the gays”. According to this 16 page diatribe, (written by someone from the year 2012) under an Obama Presidency, our country is found basking in the hellish afterglow of terrorist attacks, baby killing and sex education for first graders. Oh yeah, Obama killed a bunch of Boy Scouts too:

The Boy Scouts no longer exist as an organization. They chose to disband rather than be forced to obey the Supreme Court decision that they would have to hire homosexual scoutmasters and allow them to sleep in tents with young boys.

Elementary schools now include compulsory training in varieties of gender identity in Grade 1, including the goodness of homosexuality as one possible personal choice.

The Bible can no longer be freely preached over radio or television stations when the subject matter includes such “offensive” doctrines as criticizing homosexual behavior. The Supreme Court agreed that these could be kept off the air as prohibited “hate speech” that is likely to incite violence and discrimination.

Congress lost no time in solidifying abortion rights under President Obama. In fact, Obama had promised, “The first thing I’ll do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act”. The Freedom of Choice Act also reversed the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003, so infants can be killed outright just seconds before they would be born.

The Supreme Court in 2011 nullified all Federal Communications Commission restrictions on obscene speech or visual content in radio and television broadcasts. As a result, television programs at all hours of the day contain explicit portrayals of sexual acts. As a result, pornographic magazines are openly displayed in gas stations, grocery stores and on newsstands.

Since 2009, terrorist bombs have exploded in two large and two small U.S. cities, killing hundreds, and the entire country is fearful, for no place seems safe. President Obama in each case has vowed “to pursue and arrest and prosecute those responsible,” but no arrests have been made.

Then in the next three years, Russia occupied additional countries that had been previous Soviet satellite nations, including Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Bulgaria, with no military response from the U.S. or the U.N.

Dang, that is one impressive piece of paranoia. Although, I have to wonder how Russia ended up occupying Poland, Hungary, Bulgaria and the Czech Republic if Sarah Palin can see Russia from her house.

Eight days and counting…

Let Us Toast To Animal Pleasures: Hunter S. Thompson Hello Kitty Sculpture


Portland artist Eloah of the All Seeing Cat, has truly taken Hunter S. Thompson’s quote “when the going gets weird, the weird turn professional” to heart with this totally Gonzo version of Hello Kitty ($150). I highly recommend you check out All Seeing Cat’s Etsy page for more of her creations.

Sheer Heart Attack! “Killer Queen” Vodka Will Soon Be A Thing



Since pretty much every band out there has put their name on a bottle of booze, here comes Queen with the latest entry into the world of heavy metal beverages, Killer Queen vodka. Made by vodka giants, Stoli, Queen guitarist Brian May says that Killer Queen is a fitting tribute to vocalist Freddie Mercury as Freddie used to travel with a dry ice cooler full of vodka while the band toured. Freddie Mercury was truly a class fucking act.

But don’t rejoice yet if you live anywhere but Canada as KQ will make it 1st run debut there in November. You can order  your very own bottle of Killer Queen vodka for about $30 (+shipping via the EU) here. Also on the horizon for Queen is a line of yet to be named wine. In other news, if you’re very quiet, you can hear the sound of my liver weeping.

And because I can never get enough Queen in my life, I’m happy to report that the band will be releasing a massive comp in November called, Forever Queen. Included among the nearly 40 tracks on the double CD are a duet Mercury did with Michael Jackson, “There Must Be More To Life Than This”, an unfinished song called “Let Me In Your Heart Again”, and a new version of  the 1984 song”Love Kills”, a track that Mercury did while going solo with Georgio Moroder, as well as other new and rare Queen music.

Incredibly Realistic Clay Busts Of Tom Waits And Nick Cave


LA based sculptor and artist Trevor Grove works predominately in wax, but these stunning busts of Tom Waits and Nick Cave (Pre and post Grinderman stasch), were done with clay.


You might have seen this talented young artist work before as Grove’s Breaking Bad series of sculptures, almost broke the Internet when they started making the rounds a few weeks ago.

Nick Cave Channels Tom Jones On Previously Unreleased Track “Give Us A Kiss”


I’ve heard Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds perform this one live, and I’m happy to report that the track loses none of it’s eerie, stalker-in-the-alleyway charm it achieves live on stage. Give Us A Kiss was recording during the sessions for 2013’s stellar, Push the Sky Away. So lock the doors and lower the blinds. I’ll meet you under the bed after you push play below.

Happy Birthday Barfly! Mickey Rourke Debuts New Teef And Toddler T-Shirt In Beverly Hills

Screen Shot 2014-09-15 at 11.40.08 AM

Since I’m reviving things here at, I figured it was time to bring back my favorite muscle-bound muse, Mickey Rourke. So here’s Mickey strolling around Beverly Hills with his new teef, new improved face, new hair, and a shirt he got off the kids rack at the Gap. And it’s all working for me. Mickey turns 62 today, and his shirt doesn’t look a day older than 10. Happy Birthday, Mickey. Please keep on giving not a single fuck.

For Loring.

Punk Icon That Dislikes Shirts To Design Clothing Line For Company That Makes Booze


Proving my headline to be 100% accurate, here’s a photo of Iggy Pop teasing us about the debut of his collaborative clothing line with Sailor Jerry, due out in October. The line will feature three items, and I’m betting that at least one of them will be something Iggy ain’t got no time for, some sort of shirt.

Last year, former Clash bassist, Paul Simonon’s Flash Line with Sailor Jerry featured hand-drawn art by Simonon and looked like this:

Simonon’s sweet leather jacket ran a cool $2300, so I’m sure that Iggy’s line will have at least one if-I-sell-my-kidney-it-will-be-mine kind of wearable. And if it’s a shirt, it’ll probably look like this:

When it comes to shirts, Iggy’s motto is either go big, or go without.

Lemmy Kilmister Further Immortalized As A Garden Gnome


A very metal resident of my forever hometown, Boston, has made my day after I discovered a garden gnome version of Lemmy Kilmister is a real thing. Ian the Gnome customizes boring old garden gnomes in the image of headbanging, hip-hop, and punk legends, as well as other TV, film, and cartoon idols. Like Ian’s “Wu-Tang” garden gnome. WU-TANG GARDEN GNOME!

Love wrestling like yours truly? My black heart skipped a beat when I saw Ian’s garden gnome homage to pro-wrassler, Bam Bam Bigelo (RIP).

In other very metal news, I know things have been super sleepy here for a while but that’s about to change. Look for a new site design and the return of regular posts later this week! Hopefully you’ve been keeping up with me over at Destroy the Brain. If not, check out my review of the mind-melting EP from London based band, WREN.

Remember That Time Wendy O Williams Was On An Episode Of MacGyver?

Yeah, me neither. But it did happen and the episode “111 Harry’s Will“, aired on November 5th, 1990. And it was as awkward and as awesome as it sounds . Extra heavy metal points go to Marion Ross (dressed as the flying nun) who got to hip-check Wendy at an ice skating rink, and to for Wendy for probably really scaring the piss out of Abe Vigoda. The entire cast of this episode deserved an Emmy for this. Bonus? The clip above also contains a scene from the 1989 movie “Pucker up and Bark Like a Dog” that Williams also appeared in along with Phyllis Diller. PHYLLIS FUCKING DILLER. Mind blown.

Austin Music Commission Proposes Idea To Build Statue Of Danzig Riding A Dragon To Welcome Tourists To Downtown

Close enough.

As if Austin, Texas wasn’t awesome enough already, James Moody, part of the Austin Music Council, and owner of the famous music venue, the Mowhawk, proposed that the city build a statue of Glenn Danzig riding a dragon that would “welcome” visitors to downtown Austin. Although Moody said he made the suggestion “mostly in jest”, the news made a pretty good splash on the heavy metal part of the Internet. The Music Council will meet on again on Monday and will hopefully vote in favor of this epic idea. Portland, Oregon, you’re going to have to try harder to keep it weird if the Danzig Dragon statue gets the go ahead.

Thanks to my girl Z for the link.
