Jesus. Has it really been 47 years since Lenny was devoured by a deluded society and a syringe? Yup. This LP, never available on CD, delivers a potent punch to the gut as we revisit this agent of reckless abandon and how he shaped the new stand up ideology that has run a persistent course in comedy

A psychoanalyst suggests that the audience use hypnovista and watch these movie previews, shown more or less in chronological order. If that ain’t the glorious beginning of a journey to Weirds-Ville, I don’t know what is. Sit back, relax and attempt to cease laughing.

This is what what was Rockin’ the schoolyards in the late 30’s through WW2. Too Cool For School! The musicianship was profound as was the sound. Dig?

The narration in this clip is incorrect. The tribute was designed to salute the breakthrough Carnegie Hall concert of ‘37, not the Paramount Theater

Just how good was Townes Van Zandt? The man was so very great that there is hardly a human alive who has heard him and has not been emotionally affected by his melody and visions. Steve Earle and many others have proclaimed, ‘forget Bob Dylan. Townes was the best singer /songwriter of my generation’

Her image is forever embedded in the theater of the mind. Vampira’s sleek frame passed like a distant ghost in ‘Plan 9 From Outer Space’ to haunt us eternally. As a kid, TV horror film was a staple of the diet and imagination. Today we have been spoiled by special effects that can’t duplicate TV art
