A memory play list for Veterans day

You’re only as good as the best thing you’ve ever done.

~ Billy Wilder

Dad a WWII Veteran (RIP) and his Grandson JF. Santa Cruz CA 1992

I was always listening to music while working on Los Angeles Flipside Fanzine: Social Distortion to Jefferson Airplane, J.F.A. to Mott the Hoople , The Ramones to C.C.R., The Clash to David Bowie, The Crass to The Who! I was always linking the past to the present and those punk records keep coming !

I know  you can hear little glitches throughout  these videos. Some sort of subliminal mind-control media profit annoyance. Well, they have not got me yet…. it just sounds like scratches on my vinyl records. Nothing new.

Welcome to Hudley Flipside’s “The Seminary Of Praying Mantis Publishing.” Praying mantis shows me her story of life, death, and rebirth. For me she is an image or symbol of the divine in all things. I watch the praying mantis in my garden and have taken her image as my logo. She is an amazing little creature, and I relate to her connection to nature. We are both wild and part of this strange world. She is a part of my mythology as I am part of hers.

  1. You sound like my former radio station boss, Jonathan L. We were doing punk, Diamanda Galas, Soul Coughing, The Ramones Hour every weekday at lunch time, tons of new music and a special place in our hearts for Joan Jett. My career as an alt disc jockey and music director at ‘The Edge’ ‘The X’ (inland empire CA), ‘The Peak’ (Spokane), KUKQ AM (totally experimental, even had a live call-in music meeting with Record Company Weasels)….keep it up man. MY issue is ITunes has ‘lost’ 2000 of my songs and says the prob is on my end. Lots of forums on this issue. Have you heard about it? “REBEL WITH A CAUSE” bipolarbrainiac.wordpress.com
