“Kinky Sex (Makes The World Go ‘Round)”
-Dead Kennedys (1987)

Greetings: This is the Secretary of War at the State Department
of the United States
We have a problem.
The companies want something done about this sluggish
world economic situation
Profits have been running a little thin lately
and we need to stimulate some growth

Now we know
there’s an alarmingly high number of young people roaming
around in your country with nothing to do but stir up trouble
for the police and damage private property.
It doesn’t look like they’ll ever get a job
It’s about time we did something constructive with these people
We’ve got thousands of ’em here too. They’re crawling all over
The companies think it’s time we all sit down, have a serious get-together-
And start another war

The President?
He loves the idea! All those missiles streaming overhead to and fro
Napalm
People running down the road, skin on fire

The Soviets seem up for it:
The Kremlin’s been itching for the real thing for years.
Hell, Afghanistan’s no fun
So whadya say?

We don’t even have to win this war.
We just want to cut down on some of this excess population
Now look. Just start up a draft; draft as many of those people as you can.
We’ll call up every last youngster we can get our hands on,
hand ’em some speed, give ’em an hour or two to learn how to use
an automatic rifle and send ’em on their way
Libya? El Salvador? How ’bout Northern Ireland?
Or a “moderately repressive regime” in South America?
We’ll just cook up a good Soviet threat story
in the Middle East-we need that oil
We had Libya all ready to go and Colonel Khadafy’s hit squad
didn’t even show up. I tell ya
That man is unreliable.
The Kremlin had their fingers on the button just like we did for that one

Now just think for a minute-We can make this war so big-so BIG
The more people we kill in this war, the more the economy will prosper
We can get rid of practically everybody on your dole queue if we plan this right.
Take every loafer on welfare right off our computer rolls
Now don’t worry about demonstrations-just pump up your drug supply.
So many people have hooked themselves on heroin
and amphetamines since we took over, it’s just like Vietnam.
We had everybody so busy with LSD they never got too strong.
Kept the war functioning just fine
It’s easy.
We’ve got our college kids so interested in beer
they don’t even care if we start manufacturing germ bombs again.
Put a nuclear stockpile in their back yard,
they wouldn’t even know what it looked like
So how ’bout it? Look-War is money.
The arms manufacturers tell me unless
we get our bomb factories up to full production
the whole economy is going to collapse
The Soviets are in the same boat.

We all agree the time has come for the big one, so whadya say?!?
That’s excellent. We knew you’d agree
The companies will be very pleased.

The Burning House

finalflyer-sm.jpg

A while back an ideal art show popped into my head, “Brooklyn’s Finest”. The idea was to give Los Angeles a taste of Brooklyn Street Art. New Image Art has done just that with the upcoming show “The Burning House”. Featuring Swoon, Faile, and David Ellis it looks to be a doozy, with the opening surely to be one hell of a party. My guess is that it will sell out almost immediately, so if you are in L.A. on the 20th of January, go to the opening. If not, then try to see the show before it closes on February 24th and go hit up a taco truck. Mmmmmmm Tasty!

Recently departed photographer Bob Carlos Clarke was Britain’s leading photographer specializing in female sensuality. He was renowned for his striking silver prints which are highly prized by collectors worldwide. With style, sensitivity and a sense humour uncommon in the genre, Carlos Clarke balanced his highly-charged images on the razor-edge of fine art, and nobody did it better.

photographic mind

This is the worlds best ever autistic man with a amazing talent….
“Stephen Wiltshire was born in London to West Indian parents on 24th April, 1974. His mother, Geneva Wiltshire had come from St Lucia and his father, Colvin, from Barbados. Colvin was killed in a motorcycle accident when Stephen was three years of age. His sister, Annette, is two years older than her brother. He lives with his mother in West London.

As a child, Stephen was mute and did not relate to other human beings. Aged three, he was diagnosed as autistic. He had no language, uncontrolled tantrums and lived entirely in his own world.

At the age of five, Stephen was sent to Queensmill School in London, a school for children with special needs, where it was noticed that the only pastime he enjoyed was drawing. It soon became apparent he communicated with the world through the language of drawing; first animals, then London buses, and finally buildings. These drawings show a masterful perspective, a whimsical line and reveal a natural innate artistry.”

The worlds best ever queue of 2006, Wooster on Spring.
“…So after the Wooster on Spring exhibition, all of the interior walls of 11 Spring will be covered during the construction process. 11 Spring will become one of the most fascinating art time capsules in history. We love the fact that two hundred years from now, a brick might fall out to reveal an original piece creared by Lady Pink, Shepard, Swoon and 35 other incredible artists….” For more information on this historic event check out Wooster Collective.
