"I have tasted the maggots in the mind of the universe"


*This started as a RFW guitar-prominant Transmission. The concept/graphic illustrations (Creepy #51 - 1964, stills from The Brain That Wouldn't Die - 1962, and The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark - William Shakespeare, the trailer of Bring Me The Head Of Alfredo Garcia - Sam Peckenpah - 1974)  are inspired and dedicated to comedienne Kathy Griffen, who has come under scrutiny and persecution for her horror-movie tinged image although it has hundreds of predecessors .

I view it as both satirical and sobering.
I hope we can all agree that violence is never the answer in any circumstance.

But alas, poor us when the views of people (well intentions aside) attempt to interfere with the freedom of expression, the press and/or aid in the censorship of the arts (well intentions aside).

But remember all is fair in love and war!

**Executive Producers for this shindig were usual suspects Dr. Vincent Boom-Ba 
and Sweet Pea who provided the requisite company, tea, squawk and sympathy!
