I typed this into Google: zappa purple walls background painting

Basically, I was just hoping somebody would be talking about this exact photo and I figured they would mention the purple walls. The first search result said: “The painting in the background was used on Alice Coopers 1st album that Frank produced. … I immediately wanted to paint my walls that zappa shade of purple.” So then I looked up Alice Cooper’s discography on Wikipedia.

i don’t know how i remember this but FZ was helpful to Alice early in Alice’s career. i think he might have produced some of the early stuff.

but i i KNOW this about the “Pretties” album: it came with a pair of ladies panties on/in the record jacket. covering the album.

Me Untamed by Beat Happening

tcr! · May 28, 2015 at 11:20 am

Everything I learnt
Been burnt
Everything I’ve known
Been blown

You got love insane
You got me untamed
Me untamed

You got me black and blue inside of you
I’m racing to the edge of my chain

You got me untamed
Untamed…

Hey ugly duckling
Let’s get lost tonight
When I feel you breathing down my neck
Yeah yeah everything’s all right

You got it insane
You got me untamed
Me untamed

There’s a side of you
That welcomes cruel
Are you gonna let me out of this cage

You got me untamed
Me untamed

Gonna dig you in the land of night now baby
Gonna dig you in the land of night

All the things I do
Are through
Feel you on the edge of heaven
Yeah, coming for me soon

You got love insane
You got me untamed
Untamed

Enough with the bottles of water

tcr! · May 27, 2015 at 12:44 pm

Stop Drinking Bottled Water

Stop Drinking Bottled Water

Boycotting bottled water means you support the idea that public access to clean, safe water is not only a basic human right, but that it’s a goddamn technological triumph worth protecting. It means you believe that ensuring public access to this resource is the only way to guarantee it will be around in a few more years.

Clean, safe drinking water that flows freely out of our faucets is a feat of engineering that humans have been been perfecting for two millennia. It is a cornerstone of civilization. It is what our cities are built upon. And over the years the scientists and hydrologists and technicians who help get water to our houses have also become our environmental stewards, our infrastructural watchdogs, our urban visionaries. Drinking the water these people supply to our homes is the best possible way to protect future access to water worldwide.

Companies that package water in a single-use bottle are not concerned with the future. They are not invested in the long-term effects of climate change on an endangered watershed, nor are they working to prepare a megacity for an inevitable natural disaster. What they are interested in is their bottom line: Marketing a “healthy” product to compensate for the fact that people are buying less of their other products that are known to case obesity and diabetes—and selling it for at prices that are 240 to 10,000 times higher than what you pay for tap water.

Drinking municipal tap water means connecting yourself to your local water system, where the goals are to think holistically about the conservation of natural resources, replenish local aquifers, and build a resilient infrastructure to distribute water to the public.

Drinking bottled water means colluding with a corporation which is not required to release any public information about how it plans to cut costs, exploit workers, dig wells, or employ a fossil-fueled supply chain in its quest to get a bottle of overpriced water into your hands.

We drank so much bottled water when we were at Great America last Saturday. $4 for a 16 ounce bottle. They also searched my backpack for weapons and food items before we could enter.

it seems i’ve known from the start that bottled water was a scam. they get it out of the same taps we use. i remember when it was unheard of to “buy” water. it happened gradually, and then exploded. i’ve never been a fan, and have only used it sparingly. it’s nice to know what was just stubborn on my part turns out to be a good idea.
