Axl Rose is a looming archetype for me, because Appetite for Destruction came out when I was 7. At the time I bought it, I used a green crayon to mark out all the “fuck”s in the liner notes, and I assumed that the Nighttrain was a means of vehicular conveyance and that  Mr. Brownstone was a pesky human neighbor.

He’s weird and violent and I miss wondering where he is, rather than seeing the results of piled-on years. But I dream I AM him, with regularity, and want to meet him as badly now as I did in 1987.

Vote, baby, vote

In Beetlejuice, there’s an Otholike figure in the blacklight background, in the waiting room for the dead, while Adam and Barbara are talking to Juno.  Ghostotho. Sniff.

I hate (most of) the GOP. I make fun of (most of  the) GOP. But this war on babies is beyond anything I could have imagined.
