In the anti-drug rallies we had all the time in grade school in the early 80's, they gave us these pamplets, like comics, with a grid that told you the real name of the drug, the street names of the drug, what effects it had, and a cartoon character embodying the drug effects.

For a more mature version of hippie dream propaganda, see Iain M. Banks' 'Culture' novels—"Consider Phlebas" was first, but "Excessions" is better-written and also spends more time in The Culture. (No involuntary work. Massively extended life and health. Free love. No gods. A second 'puberty' grows consciously-controllable drug glands in your brain. Free energy.)

Talking about psychedelics I have a great documentary suggestion for Ken et al. It is a film called Pharmacopeia. Have you seen it, Ken? It has something for everyone. People that like drug addicts/dealers/chemists, people that like Apartheid nazi experiments, people that like psyched fish, etc.

All right, Kenny Boy! Finally!
Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 11:06am (((Murakami Whywolf):

How about an episode of "James at 16" as filler?
  11:06am fɊfɊ (:

That would explain why Jessie ends up being a campy stripgirl in Showgirls.

every time i hear a song that was on leonard cohen's "more best of" album (like this one) i am transported back to being a 6-year-old in the backseat of my parents' car
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:08am Bronwyn Bishop:

that record and "mock tudor" by richard thompson got a lot of play in our shitty old toyota
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:10am -Ken:

Bronwyn, did your parents let you hear the anal sex line? I used to cough loudly over that one to protect the chikdren.

leonard sounds like a muppet character here

great was wasnt song -- kinda the only one i like
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12am Bronwyn Bishop:

@Ken: Either they didn't notice or didn't care. My money's on didn't notice because my mom gave me sex pistols and rage against the machine albums for christmas when i was like 12.

Cohen later seemed to have decided that 'aimless sex' was more apt….

But what about the chikdren?

You get an 18 year grace period. Then you have to pay for that tranquility by being subject to limitless abuse.

He's a cowboy? I thought he was a mountie or a park ranger.

He's a hipster farmer planting organic jicamas.

anyone know the movie that gif beside the bic runga track is from -- i t reminds me of demon seed, but i think i wrong?
Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 Swag For Life Member 11:19am AnAnonymousParty:

I thought it was 'Torgo' from "Manos: The Hands of Fate".
  11:19am deszack:

he never looked like a dude crawling in the desert to me. I just thought he was some legless fellow dancing with joy in front of the pyramids...
  11:20am Sam:

Oh man AAP, that was like the best MST3K ever!
  11:20am deszack:

and making me do complicated math problems to register my comment isnt fair!
  11:21am Sam:

I still remember that music from Manos

That Torgo walks loop was my ringtone until I got really sick of it, which wasn't that long.

@Murakami: I loved James at 16. I think there was a 15, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:25am -Ken:

Yes, it started as James at 15. And when he lost his virginity on TV in 1977 it was very very controversial, due to the use of the reverse cowgirl on NBC in primetime.
  11:25am fɊfɊ (:

I thought the animated Cowboy was an hommage to Brokeback Mountain, and I genuinely waited for the animation to finish download to see the another cowboy coming from behind.

i'll bet lance kerwin was in tiger beat a lot.
Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 Swag For Life Member 11:27am melinda:

Most of what I saw of the James series was reruns on cable.
Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 Swag For Life Member 11:28am melinda:

I liked Fast Times At Ridgemont High but I think movies and shows about teens took a turn for the worse after it. Teensploitation, maybe. James was a different era, same with My Bodyguard.
Avatar 11:30am Cecile:

I saw the James series. It was cringe-worthy and addicting. Being 15 at the time, it was probably apropos

I think that guy doing karate moves might be crazy, or something.

he's not crazy everyone else is

I liked the Electric Six song "Escape from Ohio", with the line "Why does every city start with C?"

if you don't say 'cat' or 'groovy' several times it is not an interview.

Love that Killdozer cover, "starred" it.
Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 11:47am (((Murakami Whywolf):

I remember most of the controversy being over whether they should mention birth control or not. The country still had a mess of troglodytes in't, GOOD THING WE'RE OVER *THAT* NOW.

Actually, the controversy was because every character in that show said 'backslash' when they were talking about slashes.

I'm reading a good biography of George Herriman…now I want _his_ drawing of Lucifer Sam.

Murakami: I got part way into "Krazy" but bailed. But I too would take the drawing...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:55am Rich in Washington:

In my mind, that episode was always the 'James Gets Laid' episode.

The hell?

A couple chapters of a Lou Reed biography are free (legit) on the web.

What was that guitar song playing which it looks was ruined by Traktor?

Gracias Ken

Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 Swag For Life Member 11:59am AnAnonymousParty:

@fɊfɊ (: It was the David Gilmour acoustic guitar solo between 'Another Brick in the Wall' and 'Nobody Home' tracks on Pink Floyd's "The Wall".
  11:59am fɊfɊ (:

Thanks Keno, and people! Loved the show. Till next episode!
