GOURDIE AT THE BAR

Gourdie At The Bar 500px

This here is a Miniature Version of a Saturday Night.

I saw this guy at the bar last night. He just wouldn’t stop drinking.

His name is Gourdie. He was creepin’ on the girl- all touchie and whiny and shit. I think he actually threw up on her shirt a little bit, like on her tit. She quit thinking this was funny. She left with another guy.

He was really ridin’ the mood swing, man. Bartender’s a friend of mine, I don’t think even he could see where this was going. Gourdie was literally wailing. Have you heard a guy do that? This was Country Music shit. I thought he was going to burst.

He passed out after a while. He’d of broke his head if he wasn’t in that weird barstool thing. I left. Ima say, I don’t want him in MY cab.

Gogurt Will Fuck a Brother Up.

It’s a gateway- it goes no-place good. Chocolate milk, fruit snacks… Crumpled juice boxes and those little Kids Grape Tylenol dispenser syringes blown against the stark chain-link enclosures of the post-industrial carceral preschool dystopia…

Wasted lives, man.

GUERRILLA COMICS: A Light Went Off In My Head

We of a certain age and generational experience know the expression “A light went on in my head.” We even remember a little cartoon bubble drawn over a head, with a little light bulb in it and jagged rays around it, depicting in cartoon a light, literally, going on, in a head. We may actually have “changed” actual “bulbs,” as some of us have “changed” actual “tires.” A light going off may have been depicted differently.

Now, lights bulbs may be going off in our heads all the time. All sorts of things may have been going off in our heads. We suspect that this is what is happening when things get a bit dimmer, our speech gets a little fuzzier, and the thought we were just shaping evaporates, and we just know we’re not getting it back. We also think we have some idea what we experience when flash-bulbs go off in our heads. Maybe the woman meant a flash-bulb. That’s scary, though. I’m not sure I would be talking about that on NPR. Flash-bulbs did used to “go off,” you know. Not like digitally, or whatever. Like when gunshots ”go off. ” In our heads. You know?

WIKKI STIX: An Innocent Toy?

DON”T BE FOOLED. 

These Are WICCAN VOODOO DOLLS.

You think you innocently bend them into an amusing, harmless-looking stick figure.

A Lesbian in an alternative café down the block is contorted into writhing pain.

Or Camille Paglia is thrown to the ground in shock and agony, wherever she might be.

THESE PEOPLE ARE IN YOUR TOWN.

CARTESIAN, adj. Ambrose Bierce: THE DEVIL’S DICTIONARY

CARTESIAN,  adj. relating to Descartes, a famous philosopher, author of the celebrated dictum, Cogito ergo sum  –whereby  he was pleased to suppose he demonstrated the reality of human existence. The dictum might be improved, however, thus: Cogito cogito ergo cogito sum – “I think that I think, therefore I think that I am”; as close an approximation to certainty as any philosopher has yet made.

Ambrose Bierce. The Devil’s Dictionary (The Peter Pauper Press 1958). pp 14.
