Mr. Cam! (Mr. Azotz?)

Good to see you back. Pick up any additional habits in during your hiatus?

Thanks, man.

No new habits to speak of. Q-Tip usage is down to near zero. Still buying the odd vinyl music album at used book stores here and there. Counting IBM Selectric II typewriters when they appear in movies/TV shows. Having nightmares about Angus Scrimm. Same old vices. Straight and steady.

A Bruce Dickinson song I never heard before today. One of those bonus songs found on a Japanese import version of album so and so. I kind of like the sweeping feel of it. Retro, dare I say, Billy Thorpe-ish?

I hear him call someone and the best quote, presumably to wife/girlfriend/orevenmom  "I have no shirt or wallet again- I don't know why this always happens to me!?"

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Sounds like what happened to me, after accidentally walking into the Apple Store at Southlake Town Square.

Holy Crap !

Great to see you're still stopping in once in a while.   :)

Hey, you should get a kick out of this article about the original 'Wall of Sound'.    ;)
I'm glad I wasn't a Dead-Head roadie.
lol.
(It's a long read, but very informative - and enjoyable.)

Edit: cruise around the site I linked, there's some really cool info buried there.     ;)

Thanks for the link, Logan. I will investigate. In unrelated news, later this year, whenever it finally cools down around here, I'm going to make a much overlooked hour or so drive to view the Ft. Worth Water Gardens.  The importance of that location is not lost upon you, I'm sure!

Both from Bruce Dickinson's solo album, Accident of Birth...  This was proof that Bruce did not need Iron Maiden so much as Iron Maiden needed Bruce.

There is a Bruce Dickinson poster she had that gave me dreams of a different sort once I got a little older.

i can hear Bruce saying: "Ah. See? There you go. I was a bloody teen idol I was."

Man, that must have been a killer concert. Even some Crimson Ghost cameos in the video.

Welcome back.

When I was a wee lass, I slept in my older sister's room and it was covered with Iron Maiden posters. One night I had a nightmare all those little people that Satan is puppeteering in this poster:

were surrounding the bed. I woke up and took all her posters down. Heh. Strangely enough she wasn't as mad as I thought she'd be.

It's funny, of all the scary images in the poster, it was the people that scared me.

It remains one of my favorite Maiden videos.  They are just so INTO it.

Illustrator Derek Riggs really outdid himself on that cover art. Indeed.

Paul McCartney recently performed in Dallas. He played about 38 songs, which added up to 3.5 hours on stage.

He didn't break a sweat.

He took maybe two drinks of water.

He just turned 77.

Oh, the delicious irony of the "PAUL IS DEAD" mythos.

Tangentially, if you think I will be visiting this site when I'm 77, you're jacked in the head. 

I draw the line at 75. At that point in time, I'm punching out of here to Iceland and marrying an ice bunny one-third my age. But I do it for you. 

I sacrifice celibacy at that time for YOU, dear reader.  I do it to pass on the Camazot (the) Automat genes that this planet so desperately needs.

In this way, I will be with you always.

Well, until your world is engulfed by the Sun when it transform into a Red Giant, causing the earth to become nothing but a burned out cinder. A mere hot memory.

There's that.

So enjoy the apparent genetic immortality. While it lasts.

Here comes the sun, doo doo doo doo
Here comes the sun, and I say
It's all right

I am addicted to watching Jeopardy! every weeknight.  Bliss. Astonishment. Dopamine rush.

Side effect: I'm eating more pizza.

I hope Holzhauer reaches $7 million.

But then he needs to cease, before I turn into Goodyear Blimp Camazotz.

Nobody likes a fat bat-god.

Welcome to Project Omicron?

Wasn't that like a hush hush revolutionary slide film emulsion formula that Kodak never released? Or did I just flip into a different timeline again?

Episode 29 features an entertaining impression of Art Bell - an homage by Ken after Art's death.  There are some interspersed "Art chuckles" and overly enunciated words that make me laugh every time I listen to it. 

Podcaster Ken Layne is a bit of a curmudgeon and a cynic when it comes to people fucking up his desert habitat.

Some great stuff here.

The musical artist known as REDBLUEBLACKSILVER (who did the soundtrack and score for the new Lazar documentary), provides the backdrop soundscape for Desert Oracle Radio. I dig ambient soundscapes, and REDBLUEBLACKSILVER has some similarities to LUSTMORD and Thomas Köner.

I just gut laughed.  Holy hell do I wish it were possible for me to actually see you do this.

Gut laughs are therapeutic. I am blessed enough to experience it every time I look at my hemorrhaging bank statements, as my finances remain a ~joke.~

In fact, I just laughed again.

I must be living in Xanadu.

I appreciate all those coming by the old store and kicking up dust. Good times. Hopefully, someday, I will put something real up for sale here.

The Dallas Oddities & Curiosities Expo is now a month away. The wife of a friend said she would purchase a ticket for me if I went with them. I could not refuse. She teases her husband that I do not exist, as she has never met me ~in the flesh~.

Boy. Do I plan to strike a memorable first impression with HER.

I should have sufficient time to work on my customized pass.  The expo sent it as a PDF.

I'm old school and want to flash paper instead of a phone screen.

(This adventure may require an Ed Dames wig.  Arriving at the Expo in a mom's soccer van would round out things nicely, per MV's "mom jeans" observation.  If I go through with this charade, I will need to construct some faux gold bricks to keep things "real." Wait. I am getting ahead of myself. Will focus on the ticket construction.)

I don't know how many times I've been quoted in the Upper Corner over the years, but I'm documenting it this time:

"Let's dress up like a government spook and suck on a peyote button."

R.I.P., Cloud. (My 2nd cousin's father.)

I hope you were buried in your spook suit.

If working at the Los Alamos lab during that time wasn't a type of Hotel California condition, then I don't know my various purgatorial quantum superposition states from the Trinity crater.

Sounds like a good cover.  I hear this guy only played the bongos and picked locks for a hobby.

He appears to be a ~fine man~, and a scholar...

A resource I am slowly clawing through.  Recently found out a second cousin's father worked at Los Alamos.

W..... T..... HOLY F.....

No one seems to know anything.  Someone claimed he only "pushed a broom."

Yet the photo I saw of him taken during that time resembled a simulacrum of William S. Burroughs playing "Let's dress up like a government spook and suck on a peyote button."

That's a potent broom-pusher.

;D Wow, a post from last year. Greetings, salutations, and happy new year, Cam!

Back at you, brother. 2019 seems to be pulling to the left and to the right, depending on if I am traveling forward or backward.

Tires? Alignment?

I suspect both.

I need a hot tub, two women, tequila, and lots of desert stars.

Must focus.
