“BEHOLD, HE IS RISEN”



SCIENCE PROVES RESURRECTION A MYSTERY

Temecula, CA – Jesus! Since the review of Songs, a Greek erotica play, my highlighting the 420Nurses, and the release stories about Memoirs, the news has been just shitty. With Obama igging 250,000 petition signers to make Monsanto/Big Ag persona non touchus no matter what the side effects come from their genetically manipulated crops or fowl, and North Korea going to Defcon 2, the news has been plentiful but all bad. Even the local news has turned on a tragic note, all leading up to Easter.
However, just in time for Easter, the news that science has proved, at last, what we all knew was true, is very welcome indeed. That news would be that the Shroud of Turin is indeed as old as was first reported. Whether or not you believe the ‘image’ is Jesus, that verdict is up to the believer. That said, science also says that like the Pyramids of Giza, they can’t duplicate the resultant image or explain just how it occurred. Happy Easter!

WAR!!

STEALTH BOMBER FLY-BY IGNITES FUSE  

Temecula, CA – Posted today rather than last night due to the news story of BO’s granting Monsanto the any issues between the two countries will be resolved in a "wartime manner."
right to slow kill every American child, is the news that North Korea has entered a “state of war” against its Southern neighbor, South Korea. The North states that from now on

“From this time on, the North-South relations will be entering the state of war and all issues raised between the North and the South will be handled accordingly,” a special statement by the country’s top military command reads, according to the KCNA state news agency.

“The situation in the Korean Peninsula, which is neither peace nor war, has come to an end,” the statement says.

HEARTLAND FARMERS GET BLUNTED



PRESIDENT SIGNS DEATH WARRANT FOR CLUELESS 98%

United States President Barack Obama has signed a bill into law that was written in part by the very billion-
dollar corporation that will benefit directly from the legislation. On Tuesday, Pres. Obama inked his name to H.R. 933, a continuing resolution spending bill approved in Congress days earlier. Buried 78 pages within the bill exists a provision that grossly protects biotech corporations such as the Missouri-based Monsanto Company from litigation.

With the president’s signature, agriculture giants that deal with genetically manipulated organisms (GMOs) and genetically engineered (GE) seeds are given the go-ahead to continue to plant and sell man-made crops, even as questions remain largely unanswered about the health risks these types of products pose to consumers.

THE TYRANNY OF LOW EXPECTATIONS



WAR TALK TAG-BACK RATCHETS UP ANOTHER NOTCH

While North Korea has issued many threats against the US and South Korea in the past, this current level of sustained rhetoric is rare, observers say. On 16 March, North Korea warned of attacks against South Korea's border islands, and advised residents to leave the islands. In 2010 it shelled South Korea's Yeonpyeong island, causing four deaths.


On Wednesday, March 27th, Pyongyang cut a military hotline with the South - the last direct official link between the two nations. A Red Cross hotline and another line used to communicate with the UN Command at Panmunjom have already been cut, although an inter-Korean air-traffic hotline still exists. The jointly-run Kaesong industrial park is still in operation, however, and over 160 South Korean commuters entered North Korea yesterday to work in its factories.

North Korea is not thought to have the technology to strike the US mainland with either a nuclear weapon or a ballistic missile, but it is capable of targeting some US military bases in Asia with its mid-range missiles.

OPEN MIC EVENT TONIGHT FOR LARRY ROBINSON


SENSELESS KILLING SADDENS LOCAL MUSIC AREA

Temecula, CA – It isn’t often that someone is killed around here in Temecula, Murrieta, or Fallbrook. When
something like this happens everyone is shocked, however when the person killed is a musician loved and respected by the total local community, the tragedy takes on a whole new ripple. Last Friday night person or persons unknown, bound and gagged beloved musician Larry Robinson, then beat him savagely during a store robbery. On Saturday the 64-year old Robinson succumbed to his injuries.

Tonight at Sorrel Restaurant/Bistro, 41377 Margarita Rd, 7-11:30 p.m. [Wednesday, March 27], an open mic is planned to help the Robinson family with expenses. Robinson hosted the open mic nights there for two and a half years.
You can read about Larry here and here, in case you missed the news.

THE EMPIRE REALLY STRIKES BACK



SILENT PASSAGE FOR THE MONSANTO PROTECTION ACT

Temecula, CA – That’s right folks, you read the story titles correctly. Monsanto has taken over the US
Government. Having seen how close those in favor of labeling came to stopping their plan for the kids and adults of the country outside the 0ne Percent, the evil bio-tech industrial bully isn’t waiting for the good guys [and moms] to rally in two years here. They are not waiting any longer for anything. Below is the report, edited for emphasis from Anthony Gucciardi.

“In the typical slippery nature of Monsanto’s legislation-based actions, the biotech giant is now virtually guaranteed the ability to recklessly plant experimental GM crops without having to worry about the United States government and its subsequent courts. The Monsanto Protection Act buried deep within the budget resolution has passed the Senate, and now nothing short of a presidential veto will put an end to the ruling.

BEHIND DOOR NO. 1 - Updated



THE CORNERSTONE IN THE RABBIT HOLE

"If I push this button, will America go boom?"
Temecula, CA – In the Matrix movie, the Wachowski brothers left us with a muddied ending to a great storyline, the revealing of the original Evil source and source code program for the invention/system introduction of evil.

The recent ‘trash talk’ videos from North Korea has ramped the approval of 44 more anti-missile defense systems for the West Coast. Obama just returned from overseas talks about Iran with the Jews. And we get a new Pope who is a Jesuit. What do all these things have to do with Occupy LA, the Doomsday book release date of Memoirs, and a bus alarm in LA [on this latest commute to the second largest town in the country]?  The tie-in, after the jump.

TOM’S LETTER TO GEORGE, DICK AND OTHERS



SOMEONE WHO DIDN’T RUN THE MARATHON, AND WON’T EVER

Temecula, CA – As we celebrate the war's 10th anniversary, the country’s demo falls into one of 3 categories: Those who believe the rhetoric, those who disbelieve the rhetoric, and those who don’t hear the rhetoric. The following letter released March 18th is from a person who falls into the second category.

Tomas Young

To: George W. Bush and Dick Cheney

“I write this letter on the 10th anniversary of the Iraq War on behalf of my fellow Iraq War veterans. I write this letter on behalf of the 4,488 soldiers and Marines who died in Iraq. I write this letter on behalf of the hundreds of thousands of veterans who have been wounded and on behalf of those whose wounds, physical and psychological, have destroyed their lives. I am one of those gravely wounded. I was paralyzed in an insurgent ambush in 2004 in Sadr City. My life is coming to an end. I am living under hospice care.

FROM TURF TO SURF – THE LA MARATHON



“WORST PARADE EVER”

Echo Park, LA – The story thus far; on a weekend trip to LA specifically to attend Mike Jasoka’s comic book release party for That Bike, I have tasted great neighborhood pizza, picked up a new Memoirs reader, partied briefly with my neighborhood hipsters, and re-upped my 420 goodies. Now, on a St. Patrick’s Day Sunday, the LA Marathon is running less than a hundred feet from my adopted door. I set my phone for 6:30 AM and hit the sack, snuggling up to the foot-warmer commonly known as H.P. Lovecat, a 20 lb. Morris tabby, on my borrowed couch.


The five hours later seemed more like 30 minutes but I got my act together and was out the door by 6:45AM, recalling an earlier conversation about the lights over at Dodger Stadium. Turned out the lights indicated a celebration dedicating the LA Marathon which would start at the stadium shortly. The race from the Dodger turf would include an early start for amputees entered into the event, and would run 26.2 miles to the ocean surf at Santa Monica, the fabled end of Route 66.

LIGHTS OUT FOR CLUB DING-A-LING



THE BIKE PROM OF MICHAEL JASORKA

Temecula, CA – Often in some of my early stories about the music scene here, I talked of feeling a relationship, a mystical connection, to the land area known as Murrieta. Even now though I don’t still live in the city limits, I still have a Murrieta zip code. So I know a territorial smooze when I feel one as Murrieta was the first. It appears that my participation in Occupy LA opened the doorway to another area smooze, this time it’s the big city.
Now I know you can say, “of course LA is magnetic, like New York” so allow me to relate a simple tale of how the magic of LA is working its ‘smooze’ to enhance my infatuation for the big city. This is the first of two parts. Stay tuned for the second installment called From Turf To Surf, The LA Marathon.
Unlike the last visit to LA, see Songs Of Bilitis, this trip started smooth and finished smooth, in and out.

THE SONGS OF BILITIS STAGE SHOW REVIEW



PAST SONGS FOR FUTURE WOMEN

Temecula, CA – The year after high school graduation I learned two things. When hired over the phone for a cool summer job, the opportunity disappeared when my tan hide showed up in person for the ‘white only’ gig. My Male High ‘American Dream’ life of equality didn’t extend past those hallowed halls of learning and there were other things undreamt of outside my humble philosophy, sexual things way past my virgin understanding of the birds and the bees.
Finding an element of adventure in attending an ‘after hours’ underground bar, I was sitting at a café table when I witnessed my first girl-on-girl kiss. Though not turned on or turned off, the scene was hypnotic and I wondered about the happy girl pair in the midst of the more typical couples at the table in this speakeasy kind of place. That was then.

NARY A BOOM NOR BUSTS AT BOOK SIGNING



SPRING CLEANING REVEALS 10 YEAR TIME CAPSULE

Temecula, CA – Hello Sports Fans, sorry for the delay in relating the Memoirs book signing at Stories in Echo Park but I needed some time to decompress. Two movies and some spring cleaning have my trolley back on track after my strangest visit yet to LA and Orange counties. This trip required my skills honed from my mystic adventures to know that I was still on track for the Songs of Bilitis, a play that in all likelihood, will never be seen in Temecula, which was my other motivation to see it.


My spring cleaning revealed all my original notes and dates for all the Madlins music shows including a mint condition Strike Twelve flyer advertising them at the Mall and a signed copy of the 2004 Valley News article first reporting the Madlins shows a year after they started. After the weirdness I experienced, finding these other old ‘memoirs’ grounded me back again.

BACK TO THE BIG TOP AND THE CITY OF ANGELS

OCCUPYING PUBLICATION

Temecula, CA – As you read this news report/opinion, I am returning to Los Angeles (seen in the distance) once again, but this time as a protestor and a performer.

As a performer is the promoting of my Author Signing and ‘reading’ portion of the Doomsday Memoirs book tour. At the event reported in Another Man’s Meal, I was just a vendor, hawking my wares [as seen in the after-the-jump pic] with my LA wingman and book editor, Jeff Bradford. I was a static entity not much different that when at the Prop 37 booth for Tustin Tiller Days.
This time I am in the spotlight as the promoter, as the producer by having my props done, as the director in running my intended program, and as the head writer for the material used. And that’s IF somebody shows up. But this is more than just about me.

A BABE, A BIKE, AND A BEER

THE LATEST BREW AT THE BLACK MARKET

Temecula, CA – It had been a while since I stopped in for the tastiest home brew* around these parts, a Black Market Hefeweizen. In my last report plug, I dropped the hint that changes were occurring at the beer tasting room. Also changes were happening in my life as well, but sometime during the noggy days of Christmas, a DBS tip came through about the new beer tender at BMBCO. This new beer tender had been a café racer over in Spain until a spill said, Goodnight Irene, and ended a promising career. Romance had beckoned and at the end of it all, the Spanish- accented biker ended up in Temecula.

After the jump, see this Lance Murdock crash, give a thumbs-up, then offer a description of what she went through during and after the crash in the second vid.

BUZZING WITH STORIES FOR ECHO PARK



            THE MEMOIRS BOOK TOUR REASON, SCHEDULE, & OUTLETS

Temecula, CA – Deciding what four passages to read to the audience (providing someone shows up, lol), was quelled from a Doug Yurchey bullet point look at the plant reprinted here in 2009. In that report Mr. Yurchey calls the hemp plant or cannabis ‘alien’. But is it? 

The surprising answer of ‘no’ and ‘yes’ is revealed in Memoirs of Mr. Pete & Mary Jane Green, now being promoted in the Spring leg of the Doomsday Memoirs Book Tour 2013 with next stop at Stories, 1716 Sunset Blvd, Echo Park, 7PM; selected readings at 7:30PM, discussion to follow.
