A truly WTF? moment courtesy of Heeb magazine’s “Germany” issue… Roseanne dressed as Hitler. Why not?

I once met Roseanne and she was as cool as fuck. I met her at a function at the Tribecca Film Festival in 2000 when she gave me an award. There is actually a photograph that was taken that morning of Roseanne, myself and Gary Coleman at the ceremony. Sadly I do not have a copy of it.

Afterward we discussed our respective “collections” and she nearly trumped mine with the first thing she mentioned: She told me that she owned the entire archive of Lenny Bruce materials that had belonged to the late attorney Martin Garbus. I was pretty impressed!

She also told me about her interest in medieval alchemy—it was clear from her conversation that she knew what she was talking about—and she asked me if I could hook her up with some herb while she was in New York. So I called the weed delivery service I used at the time on her behalf (I also once hooked up Sid Caesar, but that’s another story).

I am pretty sure sure I smoked a bowl with her standing on Hudson Street that day, but for obvious reasons, my memory isn’t what it used to be…

Smoking

Tong Liangliang is only 2 years old and smokes a pack of cigarettes a day. His father first gave him fags at the age of 18 months to help cope with pain from a hernia.

This kid is not only the world’s youngest smoker, but he also has the world’s youngest smoker’s personality. Imagine the social skills he’ll have by the time he’s 15?��Ǩ���the mind boggles to even consider! (Via Bizarre Magazine)

Those of you plugged into the post modern scene know the name Eames. The duo that brought us molded plywood in every shape and form is aped left and right by today?

Responses to the Pentecostal jibber-jabberings of preacher and plagiarist Kenneth Hagin typically range from snickers to eye-rolling, but cast aside (out?) your preconceptions for a moment.  Strip away the possible, okay, PROBABLE cynicism lurking behind Hagin’s curtain, and what are we left with?  A group of people in a room HUNGRY FOR A WAY OUT—transcendence, beyond the limitations of mind, flesh, or state.  Seen in this (admittedly stripped-down) light, how much do Hagin’s communal fumblings towards ecstasy really differ from those of, say, Beck and Malina’s 60s-era Living Theatre?
