PSA: The Fugs will perform “Exorcism of the White House” – May 30, 2017

As announced on Facebook by the Fugs:

In 1967, one of America’s most original bands, The Fugs, went to Washington D.C. on a mission to levitate the Pentagon and exorcise the evil war-mongers who were expanding the Vietnam War. NOW – 50 years later, The Fugs (Ed Sanders, Scott Petito, Steve Taylor and Coby Batty) have returned to save us all from the new crop of evil-doers who have taken up residence in the White House. With the inspiration and guidance of Ed Sanders, Bob Holman, and the spirit of Tuli Kupferberg, Chuck Smith created a music video to accompany The Fugs brand-new song “Exorcism of the White House.”

OUT DEMONS OUT!!!

The Fugs will perform a live version of “Exorcism of the White House” on Tuesday afternoon, May 30, at The Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C., as part of a Veterans for Peace Rally.

PLEASE SHARE AND SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT THIS EVENT!

In all serious playfulness – it’s more important than ever for us to make art, make music, write, create! Sacred Folly!

I’m glad the Fugs are still at it!

Peace and love!

Let down my guard – split, shed my skin – Phoenix rise in my mind, no one sees.

Spring fever brain boil – thoughts drip moist (like) sweat from Tarzan’s breast – salt on skin.

We need our voices and creativity more than ever now. We need to support one another with our current realities and our hopes and dreams. We have lost too much in the last year, and will lose so much more to come.

 

Five Years – after today, five years seems hopeful for the amount of time we have left. My brain and heart have been hurting a lot for months.

No matter what – it’s time to step up in our own ways!! Never say it’s too late.

Touch of Creole

I voted weeks ago. – I’d love to escape into the forest today. A little bird told me it’s ok to get away.

 

A little music and a little peace.

This is stunning. Fantastical beauty by Amanda Palmer and her father Jack (and friends).

This video is a lush dreamscape. Just watch.

 

I originally saw this video on Pitchfork.

What Moves You?

This moved me this morning. I miss David Bowie.

Daughter Muse and Time Slipping

I love Richard Butler even more after seeing him perform last night. He looked so happy and sounded better than ever – and he had so much vigor!

In the video below he talks about his process of painting and the process of touring his music . He’s a delight!

Thanks for your creative soul, Mr. Butler!

I know the feeling of not having the chance to paint because of other creative projects. I’ve been going through stacks of journals and finding quick drawings that I saved for a later time. The time is now. Below is one of my “for another time” drawings.
