R. Crumb and his Cheap Suit Serenaders are an American retro string band playing songs from, and in the style of, the 1920s: old-time music, ragtime, “evergreen” jazz standards, western swing, country blues, hokum, vaudeville and medicine show tunes. Their three 33⅓ rpm albums, all recorded in the 1970s on the Blue Goose label, were titled R. Crumb and his Cheap Suit Serenaders (1974), R. Crumb and his Cheap Suit Serenaders No.2 (1976), and R. Crumb and his Cheap Suit Serenaders No.3 (1978); the latter two have been reissued on the Shanachie label as Chasin’ Rainbows and Singing In the Bathtub respectively. As a novelty, they issued a number of 78 rpm 10-inch singles for Blue Goose, long after the format was obsolete. The most familiar is probably R. Crumb and his Cheap Suit Serenaders’ Party Record (1980), with the double-entendre “My Girl’s Pussy” on the “A” side and “Christopher Columbus” on the “B” side. Robert Crumb was the band’s frontman and album cover artist. As of 2006 he was no longer much involved with the group; the band at that time included Robert Armstrong (vocals, musical saw, guitar), Bob Brozman (vocals, various resonator instruments, guitar, ukulele), Al (Allan) Dodge (vocals, mandolin), Terry Zwigoff (saw, cello, Stroh violin, and mandolin), and Tony Marcus (vocals, guitar, and fiddle).

This man can make you laugh, friend, I assure you. He outdid himself every single time.
Great on the ukulele. Best friend of John Keel.
I used to pick him up in front of his apartment in the City and we would drive down to the INFO shenanigans in Baldymore and back. One time I messed up his sound really badly. That was awkward. He freaked out one late night because we all liked the Beatles and we awoke to him gone. Uncomfy. Still. And that was years ago… more than 10, for sure.
Oh, those were times.
I also want to relay my best regards to my late friend Dave Singer up in Heaven, a Fortean and a physicist and the first INFO member I ever met. (The uploader, check it) He knew everybody and took part in the investigation of the notorious Coso object and loved filming and above all, kayaking. Cheers, Dave.
When the truth is found to be lies
And all the joy within you dies
Don’t you want somebody to love
Don’t you need somebody to love
Wouldn’t you love somebody to love
You better find somebody to love
When the garden’s flowers, baby, are dead
Yes, and your mind, your mind is so full of red
Your eyes, I say your eyes may look like his
Yeah but in your head, baby
I’m afraid you don’t know where it is
Tears are running, they’re all running down your breast
And your friends, baby, they treat you like a guest
White Rabbit Lyrics
Download RingtoneSend White Rabbit Ringtone to Your CellDownload Ringtone
One pill makes you larger, and one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives you, don’t do anything at all;
Go ask Alice, when she’s ten feet tall.
And if you go chasing rabbits, and you know you’re going to fall;
Tell ’em a hookah-smoking caterpillar has given you the call;
To call Alice, when she was just small.
When the men on the chessboard get up and tell you where to go;
And you’ve just had some kind of mushroom, and your mind is moving low;
Go ask Alice, I think she’ll know.
When logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead;
And the white knight is talking backwards;
And the red queen’s off with her head;
Remember what the dormouse said,
Feed your head, feed your head
Wooo Hooo The Smothers Brothers !!! Dickie!!! Tommy!!!
Using the term Bible so loosely it fell out a very long time ago, of course.
I saw a video tour of one of the museum displays of this sort of thing. So strange.
I never pursued the interest knowing that there are always lunatics to look into, but I was wondering just now as to when this stuff started to become popular. I’ve been around a while and I do not recall ever hearing even a whisper of anything like this. Who were the leading loonies of the dino movement?
Oh God, it’s too creepy right now, things are going too good for creepy weird…. good weird okay. Maybe later.
It makes one wonder about the fragility and stability of the minds and brains of their fellows.

If you’re still reading this blog you no doubt know about cretins. I found this ‘happening’ today very telling of the state of things within the realm of our culture.
Wasn’t a big happening, just a “God, don’t they know” kind of facepalm moment.
It was just one of those billions of “cause” emails I tend to get in duplicate every few femtoseconds; and you know how they give some name as the sender nowadays instead of the sender, well, this one’s name was listed as Shan Cretin.
Wow, I said, I need an excuse to use that “This Is Why” meme pic and this ludicrosity is just the ticket.
So, here goes. Pardon my indulgence.

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie and thus by extension the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” [Falsely attributed to Josef Goebbels]

←←← This sequence is cropped (and looped, remember) from the last ten frames, iirc, of the video below. Said clip was captured on Sol 6 by a camera on the lander for NASA’s Mars Pathfinder rover. Not enough pixels by a long shot, but still, mighty darn impressive. This evidence was discovered -way- back in the day by Tim Beech, Life On Mars.
Well, it certainly does seem to be moving, doesn’t it, now? Camera artifact? Hey, maybe! Let’s FIND OUT, shall we?
Is this why there has been no video on the rovers; and not bandwidth? We are, after all… watching this video.
Hey, could my buddy be the Culprit?
