New Flopside Comic Character: He be cool with the fans !!

Summer Music Funnies…

“What can you do?
What can you do?
With a brat like that always on your back
What can you lose?”

With his mighty baton and cowboy holster on his right hip…  Remember to be more than an asshole and go suck a lollypop…

They be in the festivals around the world! The Fucking Good Punk Sherpa! A good Shepard of the bands and the fans! He protects the bands from the fans, the fans from the fans , the punks from the punks! Is he a big bro or a big baby “punk” sitter?

He be cool with the fans, and the bands, and the big chasm that now separates the bands from their fans! Because if he was not there the fans would destroy themselves with violence because of the lack of responsibility for themselves, their friends, the bands and their scene!

Oh hallelujah …. glory glory Good Punk  Sherpa!

Astraea: “Iam redit et virgo, redeunt Saturnia Regna”

A layperson’s study of William Blake and other reflections….

The darkness of our world
Is not knowing and understanding;
Light can only come, when we
Make it our business to find it.
Socrates ca. 470-399 B.C.

Astraea’s hoped-for return was referred to in a phrase from Virgil’s Eclogue IV: “Iam redit et virgo, redeunt Saturnia Regna” (Astraea returns, returns old Saturn’s reign).[4] http://imgarcade.com/the-star-goddess-tarot.html

The above image is the star goddess. She is part of the earth and the sky. She is similar to many images of justice, Aquarius and the golden stars of the night sky. I find she is an archaic image that echoes of a Golden Age. If you do much reading of myths or ancient stories you’ll find the Golden Age mentioned there. Astraea is the bright star that reveals our insight into the Golden Age. She is needed in helping to  restore our “universal humanity.” Of brighter days ahead in the dark times we face.

As Virgil says “Astraea returns, returns old Saturn’s reign” maybe she does. Like a spiral the same and something different. The continuity of the stars and planets in the cosmos reflect in our watery psyche. If we become aware of this, possible, hopefully and surely, the two circles of psyche and cosmos meet within us. We will find the bright star there.

That is why I love William Blake because he defines “universal humanity.”

“In his late works , he embodied these and other ills in the nightmare ridden figure of the cosmic giant Albion, or universal humanity, who has fallen in to deadly sleep of mundane existence. In humanity’s coma, the divine is a remote and forbidding sky-god: nature a sterile heap of atoms, lovers and family members, enemies; and one’s own innermost being, an unrecognized alien.” 

~Blake’s Poetry & Designs ` A Norton Critical Edition.

“To heal Albion and reunite the “Eternal Great Human Divine.”

“A vision of the Last Judgement (pg. 434) “It is an endeavor to restore what the ancients call the Golden Age.” Albion Rose!!

Polarized situation that is confusing on both sides… yet there is something going on behind closed doors. The Swamp Hotel, Trump D.C. outpost… is not telling us what is happening. No schedules and secret green doors. “I can’t recall” and propaganda on both sides. Again this is how we the people are being polarized.

“…But we should realize that both the alcoholic and the bodhisattva are yearning for (and with the bodhisattva actually working for) a situation in which individual egos are not separate…” The Outer Planets and Collective Projection Pg 79 Tim Lyons

The triumph of working with Neptune is waking up to the quote above with a triumphant calling to move forward.

It scares me to read the above quote. I like my independence and introverted ways. To know that all egos are not separate is good as long as we are not to packed together.

Maybe working together for a common cause is better! A call of integrity is a call of the human spirit to right wrongs. These are more my way of seeing it.

There is hope if people will begin to awaken that spiritual part of themselves, that heartfelt knowledge that we are caretakers of this planet.

“The flames of degradation burn and curl up the sky,
They tell you when you going wrong, but they never tell you why.
They got all the power and they shove it in your face,
Stomp you in the ground just to keep you in your place.”

Trumpiel Wheel the four monsters: Jared, Steve, Rex and Donald ` A Flipside Comic.. they suck !

Ezekiel’s Wheel is often used in art psychology, religious discourse and UFO Ancient Alien Theory. In truth it is about the prelude to war. It is the vision of a religious prophet and the history of the annihilation of many beautiful cultures by a ‘son of a bitch’ patriarchy religious ideology. A horrific story that is not often mentioned honestly in the big picture of its sickness. It is about power that corrupts and the individuals that manifest that power are those that are profoundly corrupted.

This insanity is often excluded but we need to call it out for what it really is.  That is what Flopside comics is doing today… also we have upgraded Ezekiel’s Wheel to reflect our modern age. Unbelievable madness in our wonderful modern world.

  Remember to be more than an asshole!

The Kushner Companies’ purchase in 2007 of 666 Fifth Avenue, an aluminum-clad office tower in Midtown Manhattan, for a record price of $1.8 billion is considered a classic example of reckless underwriting

Considered the biggest purchase in US history…

Rodney, Annette & Frankie…

I looked outside at the night while watching the stars and the sparkling lights on the Verdugo Mountains  It was this time that a new world opened to me. We were all listening and we were all connected somehow. 

It was about 3 feet by 4 feet. Beige color and made of a soft wood with round speakers built-in the front of the radio. The base sound  was good and highlighted the sound his soft DJ voice made. His voice was in conflict to the loud music he played. Cutting Edge music.  I was glued to the sound of the music he played. The room was dark and I was alone in my parent’s  second story house.

Rodney A

In my imagination it never occurred to me that I would get to know this music man. A type of pre internet friend. A phone, mail relationship that came to be during the 1980s. Kinda like a Facebook friend now. Not exceptionally close but supportive and reliable and we all randomly came together as a sturdy cable. We were the jumpstart to that starting punk rock engine.  A dependable promotional voltage to what the puck scene was screaming to achieve. Great times…. thank you Rodney !! A lot of action and movement ! A lot of love !!!

Controlling Improvising friends..

Improvising is having the ability to control one’s mind and think clearly. To speak from memory and experience within the presence of  now and not get tongue-tied. I watch how some people are so good at this type of control. It amazes me. They can move their bodies, speak and improvise with a type of grace. A controlling of the mind and the body with entertaining perfection.

It is not about repetition or practice, yet that is part of it. Taking tests and writing essays in a class is the same type of improvising control. Some are good at it and others are not. Takes a lot of practise yet some people can bull their way through with flying colors. That is what I would like to be able to do.

I guess this is why I love Jazz. It is improvising control that is so perfect. A yearning for me…

“I stood for a moment on the scent, smelling this shrill and blood-raw music, sniffing the atmosphere of the hall angrily, and hankering after it a little too. One half of this music, the melody, was all pomade and sugar and sentimentality. The other half was savage, temperamental and vigorous. Yet the two went artlessly well together and made a whole.” Pg. 37 Steppenwolf

Slash and Flipside on ROQ late 1970s

“Records…..Records….and Records!!!!!” ~ Mike Vallejo

If you lived as a teen in the late ’70s or during the ’80s you were most likely riding the original wave or skating the rebellious cement of the original punk rock scene in some way, shape or form. Mike sent me a CD in the mail, like the good old days, of an early interview with Slash Magazine and Flipside Fanzine on Rodney on the ROQ. I am airing it again today. Mike said it was ok to post this on my blog.

From the Flipside 10 Year Anniversary issue.

Mike sells more than just records and seems to have a lot of music and things that document the early punk scene. I also purchased a CD from him of The Jam playing the Whisky A Go Go. A thrill for me to find. I am delighted to receive this CD. My mentors speak! I was most likely listening to this on my parents’ old WW II German Telefunken radio. WOW! Enjoy and thanks Mike Vallejo! A friend indeed.

The last audio 7 ends abruptly. I wrote a letter to Kickboy-face after hearing this live back when it was on the air.  He wrote back a week later. Also I danced with him at the Whisky A Go Go live to Madness.  It is strange but this captures pre Elks Lodge Riot... we all know how that turned out!!

Rodney on the ROQ Los Angeles Flipside Fanzine and Slash Magazine (KROQ)

I know that the nasty Slash characters played a song trick or two on Rodney… did you catch it… an utmost synchronicity for me…

Ultimate conclusion !

Pluto Love

Pluto

“To improve the external situation in the world, we must begin by accepting that world as a mother accepts her child; to improve our intimacies, we much extend the same benevolence to ourselves. The acceptance we must cultivate is the same: the emphasis remains on the inner world. As Jung pointed out, “The upheaval in our world and the upheaval in consciousness is one and the same.” We must come home to ourselves with a mothering acceptance, and so give birth to ourselves with a mothering acceptance, and so give birth to true emotion, the basis of all true intimacy. ” Pg 129 Astrology Beyond Ego – Tim Lyons

A while back I had a scary dream. I was with a group of people. We were all running from evil monster zombies. The feeling was dread. We found a train and traveled to the country. It was horrid. The thought of death approaching was a sickness in us all. We found a cabin in the countryside. I had my white cat Mr. Po Po with me. He ran from the cabin out into the darkness of the night. The zombies were there. The monsters were close. I had to run after my cat. Terrified I ran out into the these monsters of chaos and fear beyond enduring. As I found my cat. I Hugged him. I was confronted by the evil that pursued us. Everything stopped. I looked into death and he said this to me,

“I can not hurt you with that cat.”

“You all run in fear and hate”

“Yet there in your hands is your love”

“I can not touch you or harm you with love.”

I was overwhelmed with dread, then fear, and then I felt only my cat’s love. I walked slowly back into the cabin and told the others what happened to Mr. Po Po and me.  We all sat in a circle and held hands. We now knew what to do. We sang a new song.

Pluto and the underworld. Pluto and death. Pluto and nuclear weapons. Pluto and power of the underground. Pluto and transmutation. Pluto loves Persephone.

CHORUS Below translated… I hope this is correct!
“Come to the realms of bliss,
great hero, tender husband,
rare example in any age!
Amor returns Eurydice to you;
already she revives and recovers
all the flower of her beauty.”
