‘Mickey Mouse and the Medicine Man’ is taken from a 1951 Mickey Mouse comic book. The plot goes something like this: Goofy (obviously so-named because he was always hopped up on goofballs) brings over some “Peppo” for Mickey to try. Mickey likes it. I mean he really, really likes it.

Mickey decides to become a brand evangelist (pusher) for the product and guess where they send him? Why, to Africa of course!

Read the whole thing—it’s crazy—at All That’s Interesting.

Thank you Brian Tibbetts!

Rest in Perversity: Sebastian Horsley

image
 
Eight days after the West End premiere of the play based on his autobiography, Dandy in the Underworld, top-hatted London-based extreme artist and lifestylist Sebastian Horsley was found dead this morning at age 47 of an apparent heroin overdose.

Born to wealthy alcoholics, Horsley is best known for traveling to the Philippines to be crucified as part of his research for a set of paintings dealing with the topic. But besides his arcane fashion sense, penchant for whoring, and ability to make the scene—running with the likes of Nick Cave, Current 93, Coil and others—Horsley was an accomplished painter and writer, and a guy with a drawling accent who could hold court in a red velvet chair with the best of them.

The Soho Theatre cancelled tonight’s performance of Dandy…, but will continue on tomorrow. Our own Richard Metzger put it best when told the news: “How sad that the world has one less total pervert.”
