Rowdy’s Dream Blog #338: Old Colonel, New Game

The old colonel has invented a new game whereby one takes hold of some loops in the ears of a small wooden elephant and gives chase by flying in a sine wave, rising and falling, rising and falling…

Resin Junior High School Reunion

Long before the local clubs would demean themselves by booking punk bands (and before “punk” became a genre and not an outlook), Albuquerque had a seething, seamy musical underbelly of garage bands that actually gigged in garages, cellars and even frat houses. These shows were sometimes promoted by hand-scrawled flyers but mostly by word of mouth. There was a DIY record label (Resin). There was a record store that sold Resin releases (Bow Wow). And there were bagels, lots of bagels, and shows in a Nob Hill basement near sweltering ovens (Fred’s Bread & Bagel). There was also a man who counted a cast of characters among his friends, acted as their attorney and confidant, and hauled in mountains of crawfish from the Gulf for band parties. This Friday, friends of New Orleans native Gary Wayne Nelson (who is seriously ill) will be on deck at the Launchpad to return his many favors with a benefit show.

Well Worth Talking About

“ ... the exciting sounds of ... The Drags”

I still remember how I fucked up the hearing in my right ear: crushed by the crowd and pressed up against the P.A. at the Dingo Bar for the cacophonous trash ’n’ roll of The Drags.

history lesson

DayBird - April 13th

1570 – Guy Fawkes, English Catholic conspirator was hatched.

Remember, remember, the fifth of November,
The gunpowder treason and plot,
I know of no reason
Why the gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.

1598 – Henry IV of France issues the Edict of Nantes, allowing freedom of religion to the Huguenots. They came to their senses and had the Edict repealed in 1685.

1796 – The first elephant ever seen in the United States arrives from India. I trust this is accurate information.

1943 - The discovery of a mass grave of Polish prisoners of war executed by Soviet forces in the Katyń Forest Massacre is announced, by Nazi Germany . The Soviet Union continued to deny any responsibility for the massacre until 1990. The number of victims is estimated at about 22,000.

On 10 April 2010, a plane carrying Polish President Lech Kaczyński with First Lady and eighty-six of Poland's highest military and civilian leaders, crashed in Smolensk, killing all aboard. They were to attend a ceremony marking the 70th anniversary of the Katyn massacre. That sucks.

1953 – CIA director Allen Dulles launches the mind-control program MKULTRA. Experiments included administering LSD to CIA employees, military personnel, doctors, other government agents, college students, prostitutes, mentally ill patients, and members of the general public in order to study their reactions. LSD and other drugs were usually administered without the subject's knowledge or informed consent.

MKULTRA records were destroyed in 1973 by order of then CIA Director Richard Helms. So information is shotty. It is known that forty-four American colleges or universities, 12 hospitals and 3 prisons are known to have participated in MKULTRA. The consensual participants had some of the most Xtreme Xperiments.In one case, volunteers were given LSD for 77 consecutive days.

I did not know that the use of LSD was legal in the United States until October 6, 1966.

A Baby Elephant is Coming

Man. Baby animals melt the cockles of the hardest of hearts. (I’m not sure if that’s good for you.)
Man. Baby animals melt the cockles of the hardest of hearts. (I’m not sure if that’s good for you.)

Rosie at the Rio Grande Zoo is going to pop. She’s been with child for about two years. (Elephants are preggers for 22 to 24 months.) The baby, guaranteed to be absurdly cute, should be trundling around any day now. It could be August. It could be September.

Rosie, 16, was born at the zoo, and she’s out on exhibit now. Unless she births her calf unexpectedly, it will probably be a private affair—unlike the showy display that giraffe put on.
