I'm ready to move on a bit here. I'll keep filing Cramps stuff [for myself mostly] in that last post, but stop posting about it myself. I don't want to turn into one of those Elvis people. Well, maybe I do a little bit...
But, I am sort of interested in posting more often about weird exploitation films and old rock and country albums. You know me- it's usually about the gems of culture around here, when I'm not bitching about politics. As Spring sets in, and I start emerging from the usual Winter depression, I find myself surprised by all the interests of mine that were in hibernation. Hey, I love the Kinks! Oh, that's right- Patsy Cline! Hey, I remember loving Herschell Gordan Lewis movies!
So, I don't know if there's any common theme here- I like the real ''classics''of art and literature, the hidden gems of music, and the weirdest, way-out artifacts of trash culture pretty much the same. I love anything that doesn't bore me, and just about every damn thing I see around me nowadays bores me stiff.
And, if it's okay with everyone else, I'm going to keep on plugging along here with this thing. Without a map, as usual.
Endnote: Anyone know how to embed MP3s on this damned thing? It'd make it easier to share some of the weirder songs I have lying around.
