Humor and hate… and a little sex on the side.

As we grow older, we tend to remember the funniest times of our life, if the most productive. This popped into my head today and got a round belly laugh going. It was mentioned on the Flipside Memorial Facebook page and with an interview I had with Razorcake fanzine. One of their first online podcasts. I want to share the story again. The privilege of getting older is you can recite stories again and again…

This image is from Flipside Fanzine. An SST advertisement. A lot of people ask me why I did this? Defile a Raymond Pettibon image. A mustache on nun face of an album cover …? Slip It In …. sorry guys kind of deserve what you got! At the time waiting to publish an issue sometimes out of boredom I had moments of inspiration!! I was feeling humorous … who knows what was on my mind at the time. I never heard one complaint from Raymond at all. Henry Lawrence was offended. SST put out a flyer stating all the people and organizations that they were against. The last on the list being LAPD and HUD! (does anyone have that in their nostalgia flyer stash?) I could never figure it out, was it me they were hating, or the character played by Paul Newman in the film Hud?

I do remember a Santa Monica show with Charged GBH. I had pee yellow hair that ran all over my shirt from going crazy before the bands. Anyway, Henry was looking for me to kick my ass. I weighed about 125 lbs. back then and stood about 5’ 4”. Luckily, I was in GBH’s backstage room and they blocked Henry’s defense movement. So, a little punk chick could bug a few people. I did not get it! I was just moving forward with the long-standing Flipside juice … Flipside staff people “causing considerable trouble?” I learned that from X-8.

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.
