Better get a perm.
You Don’t Look So Good, Mom….
This looks fun. I don’t think Rami directed it, but is producer. I never saw the 2013 Evil Dead. May need to rectify that.
Stone vs. Stone
Exhibit A: Bob Dylan’s, Keith Richards’ & Ron Wood’s gloriously ragged “Ballad of Hollis Brown” from Live Aid (couldn’t find this song without the cringey sing-a-long at the end). Exhibit B: Same festival: Mr. Showbiz, Sir Mick, preening and prancing, desperate for your approval of him as a solo act. My point? I think it’s interesting that if you take Keith out of the Stones, you still have the coolest guy on the planet. Take out Mick, and he just looks ridiculous. Keith saunters out and owns a stage; Mick has to shake his ass and do calisthenics for it, but even then he needs Keith around looking cooler. Interesting dynamic.
Mike Love Raps…
…with predictable results. Even the girls can’t save this sad abomination; I couldn’t make it past one minute. According to this guy, the song was conceived as a duo with Bart Simpson for an upcoming Simpsons movie, but the producers declined, feeling that “Bart, after all, has some standards to uphold.” Indeed. Instead, it landed on Baywatch. I might have saved this one for Loathsome Thursday, but this stands in its own category of awfulness. I hesitated to post it at all.
Are You Lonesome Tonight?
Yes, hopes Sam Kinison in a classic rant. He sings surprisingly well.
My house went on the market yesterday. My office (that I never use and I threw a bunch of old hifi stuff and a midi controller I had laying around into to stage) has now flicked off almost 2,000 people on Zillow.
God Bless the Mats

This One Still Makes Me Laugh
One of my daily stops is to The Far Side. Some have aged better than others, some were too weird or obtuse to begin with, and a few are just perfect.
You can only live in one. Which is it??
I’d like to submit House 10, if acceptable to the greater bastardate:
