A wise man once said…

If you’re normal, I intend to be a freak for the rest of my life, and I shall baffle you with cabbages and rhinoceroses in the kitchen, incessant quotations from “Now We Are Six” through the mouthpiece of Lord Snooty’s giant poisoned electric head. So there.

That was the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band. I can’t remember which particular wise man it was, but we had plenty of them back then.


Sounds like Vivian Stanshall to me.

Not to get poltical, but I feel like it’s normal for the US govt. to do horrible things to other people on a routine basis.

I’m sad I Negativland’s 2020 tour got postponed due to COVID-19, but I’m glad they are 10-8 after the past several years worth of tragedy and the Weatherman’s recent hospitalization.
