Shot this at the all pink gas station. The owner came out and snarled at me for taking it, so that’s our first and last time buying gas from him.

Truth in shadow

masturbation mambo

Masturbation Mambo

Well you slip your hand on in
pulling light down low
and grip unzippered sin
do the masturbation mambo
add some lubricating cream
to massage the ole libido
dream a dreamy dream
and masturbate the mambo
oh you stroke it to the left
and you pull it to the right
as you’re thinking of the cleft
and squeezing real tight
you’re picking up the pace
roiling oil on the ego
in this fleshly race
of the masturbation mambo
you do the pants pant here
then the rub dub there
through empty air you spear
phantasmagoric hair
moaning lone and low in groan
of huffing puffing hump
your sex and you alone
in pre-climaxing clump
till bang you break the mold
in epileptic shudder
your inner outer load
that was meant for another
you play the music louder
make faster master go
in double dealing downer
doing masturbation mambo
so with hairy palm on gland
and blindness quickly coming
why don’t you give yourself a hand
and tug your central something

mirror mirror on the wall
who’s the biggest liar of all
foto by Smith

This today from
When ABC’s Barbara Walters asked the former Alaska governor, “if you ran for president, could you beat Barack Obama?,” Palin replied: “I believe so.”

Oh Sarah, please run against Obama in 2012. That would be such a gift for the comedians and bloggers and would guarantee Obama wins again. You’re the gift that just keeps on giving. Please please please pretty please run. Oh, it’d be soooo delicious.

Here are the rest of my unused harvested Sarah Palin headlines that I’ve not posted because their nasty truth made me feel unclean after reading them. It’s good to get them off my computer – they were beginning to smell.

There are far too many to read, and only worth the time if you care about things like freedom, truth, morality, honor — or if you’re looking for a good belly laugh, or need to vomit, or are curious for a look at the slimy underbelly of the most hypocritical of the American forked-tongued scum.

read if you dare, or if you care – foto by Smith

This blog is courtesy of Stone Ranger, my stained glass artist friend for the past 39 years. It is his comment on the U.S. Federal Reserve’s decision to print up an extra 600 billion dollars of unbacked bogus money.

If I printed fake dollars, it would be called counterfeiting and I’d be jailed; however when the government prints worthless dollars, they call it “quantitative easing” and pat themselves on the back.

The financial ministers of every country in the world (except ours) are telling the U.S. this is a very very bad very very stupid idea.

~ ~ ~

As Mark Twain said, “History does not repeat itself, but it does rhyme“.

The Fed has printed $600 billion in paper money
to give some juice to the economy
Is “Weimar” something we may see?
“Ask us later, we’re watching TV.”

From Wikipedia:
“In its 14 years, the Weimar Republic (1919 – 1933) was faced with numerous problems, including hyperinflation, political extremists on the left and the right … the reparations did damage Germany’s economy by discouraging market loans, which forced the Weimar government to finance its deficit by printing more money, causing rampant hyperinflation … and the political chaos may have caused a psychological imprint on Germans that could lead to extreme nationalism, later epitomized and exploited by Hitler.”

We live in dangerous times, and the wolves are circling the homestead…

Here’s a news article addressing this: The World Says No to America’s Monopoly Money

Here are the first two paragraphs of the article:

“In a slap in the face heard around the globe, China’s state credit agency just publicly downgraded America’s credit rating, and questioned US leadership of the world’s economy.

“In an unprecedented rebuke, China scolded Washington for “deteriorating debt repayment capability,” predicting that Washington’s printing of billions in paper money (known as quantitative easing in financial argot) would be “fundamentally lowering the national solvency.” – by Eric Margolis

night dreams life dreams hard to share

night dreams – foto by Smith

I’m starting to remember my surrealistic pillow dreams now that I’m not smoking. I think weed messes with short term memory buffers. Of course if that’s true, over these past 43 years I should have the longest short term memory gap in town (sounds like a country song title).

In this short ominous dark threatening dream of sudden violence, I’m in the abandoned basement of Alcatraz Prison with a bunch of dirty unwashed unshaven uncommunicative unfriendly raggedy dressed men. We sleep amidst the dirt and broken stones on the floor, each man in an almost room of broken down stone wall. The surroundings look like the post-industrial decay found in The City of Lost Children or Delicatessen or Micmacs (which oddly enough are all movies by the same director).

Most everyone else is doing strange things in dug pits and then filling them up with huge broken boulders; others are threading gigantic black ribbed tubing throughout the basement, while the rest are outside laying down long yellow marking lines on top of the water, rather like a chalk line outlining a corpse, only the area is humongous and square.

In the midst of this I’m trying to get my laptop to boot up and ask another if I can use his Ethernet cord to get online, but he acts like he can’t see me, can’t hear me. I inquire of the rest what’s going on and they ignore me. When I grab one and ask directly to his face, he stares at me in silence.

I get angry and go to one of the pits they’ve worked in and then filled with rock and I secretly lift all the boulders out and discover they’ve coated the bottom with an unnaturally bright glowing pink viscous gel that is sticky to the touch and which I slightly sink into when I stand on it.

I fill the pit back in and confront them, demanding to know what’s going on and they just look at each other in silence until one presses a button and there’s a sudden WHOOOOSH and the black tubing starts filling with air, whipping dangerously about as it starts squeezing the building at its base tighter and tighter until it picks the entire prison up, jerks it through the air, and smashes it in the middle of the yellow chalk lines floating on top of the water.

Turns out the thick pink gel was waterproofing to keep the ocean from seeping into the basement.

I’m absolutely astounded to see this, in fact the shock of watching this huge building jerk out of the ground, fly through the air and violently smash into the ocean is so great I wake, sit up, shake my head in appreciative wonder, then scurry out to tell my wife, who politely listens but doesn’t seem to share my amazement much.

Be they night dreams or life dreams, dreams are hard to share.
