Dangerous Minds Radio Hour episode 11: Xmas Chaos with guest host Rick Potts

image
 
Hey kids, it’s a special Xmas edition of the Dangerous Minds Radio Hour with guest host Rick Potts ! One of the founding members of the Los Angeles Free Music Society, Rick and his cohorts have been making and collecting weird records since the early 70’s and mining a specifically suburban vein of audio surrealism delightfully apparent in this radio special. Mele Kalikimaka !
 
Rick sez: “The Winter Holidays can be stressful and downright annoying. It can get you down but an alternative to Grinch-ness & Scrooge-osity is to revel in the oddness, absurdity and surrealism of Christmas-time. Ka-Bella-Binsky-Bungo!”

Well, I admit it. I was fooled. And yes, it seemed almost too good to be true.  And yep, it was.

So, this isn’t Werner Herzog reading ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, but it’s still a nice thought, just like the one I have about the fat guy in the red suit with the white beard, who’s allegedly bringing me lots of presents…I hope.

The Tron-a-sutra has been updated and animated for those who found the ancient pictorials a bit too mystifying.

The missionary position allows for easy entry, deep penetration and although women are placed in a passive role (hence “missionary”), it is one of the more enjoyable positions for couples who take pleasure in intimacy.”

Yes, it’s that season again when thoughts turn to chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Christmas elves and GWAR!

All together now:

Crush, kill, destroy, crush, kill, destroy, destroy!
I was first and shall be last, slaying all who cross my path
Toppling your gleaming towers, bathing you in golden showers
I crush you as I would a fly
I Kill you and I watch you die
Destroying all I find offending, devastation never ending

Rock and roll hating Christian whackjob Pastor Gary Greenwald has been ranting about the evils of the Devil’s music for decades now. His rants about backmasking on rock records are the stuff of legend. Here he is equating the demonic Todd Rundgren with the anti-Christ. Who knew?

Mummified vampire heart for sale on Ebay

Vamp[ire heart

The sellers description of this lovely collectible:

We bring you the mummified heart of the vampire Auguste Delagrange. Before his destruction in 1912 Delagrange was responsible for the deaths of over forty people during one of the worst outbreaks of vampirism in the United States. He was eventually identified and hunted down by a Roman Catholic priest and a Voodoo Hougan. The pair began systematically destroying nests and minions, forcing Delagrange to take refuge in an abandoned farmhouse on the outskirts of a small town in Louisiana. It was there that a stake was driven through his heart and his body destroyed, consigning his soul to it’s inevitable end. All that remains is the heart you see before you. The vampire’s dessicated heart and the stake that destroyed him are stored in a box of finger jointed oak that measures approximately 5” high, 8” wide, and 11” long. The plaque on top of the box notes the day Delagrange was destroyed and appears to be hand lettered, consistent with the time period.”

According to the description: “Your holiday season will never be the same once you add the Boob Ball Ornament to your tree!”

For some reason, I believe that statement. The Boob Ball sells for $7.60 and there are plenty in stock… naturally.
