Helen Damnation, Spreader of Sunshine

If I had any real sense of social responsibility, I'd probably use this space to open up a discussion about the significance of this day. It is, after all, the fourth anniversary of the start of Bush's ridiculous, disastrous war on Iraq. It's also the twenty-fifth anniversary of the tragic plane crash that took the life of my all-time guitar hero, Randy Rhoads.

But you know what? I find both of those items entirely too depressing to delve into. There's plenty of gloom, doom, political commentary, and nostalgia in the tardosphere without me chiming in.

Instead, I'd like to share with you that this morning on the subway, I saw a woman with a bleached-orange, five-inch-tall high-top fade (also known as the Eraserhead), a-la Kid of Kid 'n Play.

It was totally awesome.

Happy March 19th.

I Loved, Loved, Loved Randy Rhoads!

One of my BFF's looks just like him.

That is some crazy fucked-up hair-do.

Along with giving marissa tomei an oscar for my cousing vinny, the most upsetting oscar moment in history was not giving kid 'n' play a joint oscar for their portrayal of duncan pinderhughes and blade brown (and vice versa) in the timeless 'class act'.

I didn't know that your commute took you through the eighties.

That wasn't a stroll through memory lane so much as a drive-by.

OMG, did we go to high school together, or what? Randy Rhodes, Boston, now Kid -n- Play. If you also ventured off into Punk, and rampant drug use, I'm going to have to look you up on
