 Strange, indeed, as proven by this laugh out loud Christmas video by No Small Children.  You have to have followed the string of videos this excellent band has done over the past number of years, but if you have you will get it.  Subtle.  Very subtle.  And funny.  I cannot even begin to tell you the joy I have gotten from following their growth.  One of the best three-piece bands I have ever seen.

Let’s kick this weeks column off with a brand new video by guitarist Jon Gomm.  This dude has worked his ass off to get where he is and deserves all the publicity he gets, which is a damn lot.  Brand new and hot off the presses.  If nothing else, Gomm is famous for spitting in Simon Cowell’s eye.

Robert Cronkite Presents The News of the Whirled

EDITORIAL

I hope I don’t come across as being an alarmist, but has anyone else noticed that everything seems to be so fucked up on this mudball right now, that it can’t possibly be happening.

I mean really.

This can NOT be happening.

The world in which we live in (Thank you, Paul) is going through an odd, disconnected from reality, square dance.

Could this be…AN ALTERNATE TIMELINE IN ANOTHER DIMENSION???

Or are we collectively the dumbest, childish, most self-absorbed, delusional, insecure, undereducated, barely literate, bigoted, apathetic, species in the entire known universe?

Maybe if we look at this logically.  Hmmm…Awww, what the hell.

Frank Gutch Jr: My Morbid Yet Sanguine World

Charlie passed today.

This is what it was like when he held sway over the L.A Basin.

Look for News of the Whirled on Friday….

On July 25th, 1969, Music teacher Gary Hinman is murdered in his Topanga Canyon home. On August 8th, 1969 Steven Parent, Jay Sebring, Wojciech Frykowski, Abigail Folger, Sharon Tate and Sharon Tate’s unborn child are murdered in her home on Cielo Drive. On August 9th, 1969 Leno and Rosemary LaBianca are murdered in their Los Feliz home. 

All the murders are brutal, and horrific.

It is the official end of the innocence…
