TSOL Singer Jack Grisham Has New Book Out; Exploring Run for Senate in 2012

Posted in Announcements, Music, Politics with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on April 15, 2011 by Ro

This is Jack. In my car.

Jack Grisham, lead singer for the popular 80’s punk/goth band TSOL, has a new book out.

“An American Demon: A Memoir” is a sometimes touching, mostly cringe-worthy book  detailing the evolution of Grisham’s life. Between dysfunctional family issues, the 80’s punk scene, religion, surfing, addiction, and cross-dressing, Jack’s neurotic story-telling combined with his unabashed hilarity makes this a “must-read” even for non-punk fans. Buy the book at Amazon.com.

In other Jack news, our hero is exploring the possibility of running for the senate in 2012 under the social-democrat platform. In 2003, he ran for governor of California but lost to Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Old punks remember that during the the early years of TSOL, Grisham was an outspoken anarchist, and his lyrics were often highly critical of the government. Songs such as “Abolish Government/Silent Majority,” “Peace Thru Power,” and “Property Is Theft” were standard in TSOL’s song sets. Grisham later changed his anti-government stance, stating, “What I realized about anarchy is that we are not responsible enough to be anarchist. There’s no way possible. We’re not responsible enough to be that. That’s a heavy concept.” For those paying attention, yes this came straight from his Wikipedia article, but I wrote most of his Wiki it so it’s cool.

LA/OC folks… go check out Jack’s book release party in Long Beach on May 1st. Details here.

Here is a young Jack with TSOL making a fashion statement. Now decades later, he still dresses with flair and still has that crazy head of hair!

Tofurky and Gravy Soda

Posted in Announcements, Events, Food with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 27, 2009 by Ro

First off, I’d like to wish all of our beloved readers a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday! I know this is a day late, but I’m in Los Angeles at a relative’s house who was waiting for me to get in and hook up the wireless router.

By the way, I ran across the perfect Christmas gift for that wacko PETA-loving relative who you never know what gift to buy for them. Buy them a Jones Soda Co. Tofurky & Gravy Flavored Soda gift pack for $11.99.

Each gift pack contains:

  • 1 Bottle of Jones Zilch Black Cherry
  • 1 Bottle of Jones Zilch Pom
  • 1 Bottle of Jones Zilch Vanilla Bean
  • 3 Bottles of ToFurky
  • 1 ToFurky Metal Lunch Box.

If you don’t know what Tofurky is, it’s a Turkey made out of Tofu. And it’s the most rubbery, tasteless piece of shit you could ever eat.  But your vegan gift-recipient should be used to eating this kind of stuff so who knows? They might love it.

 

Did Glenn Beck Rape And Murder A Young Girl In 1990?

Any political junkie has heard the old tale of LBJ’s dirty campaign tricks.

During LBJ’s first congressional race, when he supposedly told his campaign manager to begin circulating the rumor that his main opponent, a pig farmer, was practicing animal husbandry a bit too literally. “Jesus, Lyndon,” the campaign manager was said to have responded. “Nobody’s going to believe that.” “Yeah,” quoth LBJ, “but I want to hear the son of a bitch deny it.”

Well now I’d like to turn your attention to another person who practices such vile techniques. Glenn Beck. Glenn claims to be a Libertarian, and his 1 hour show on Fox News makes Alex Jones look sane. He makes some of the most unbelievable, outlandish, disgusting claims about his political enemies. Yet he manages never to be called out for it, much less sued for it because he hides behind one punctuation mark. The question mark.

If you have ever watched his show, you will hear him use this techineque with surgeon like precision. “I am not saying Obama is a Marxist, I am just asking the question, is Obama a Marxist?” “I’m not saying there are microchips in the swine flu vaccine, but I must ask, is there microchips in the vaccine?” Glenn floats these questions through satellites, directly into the brains of the mouth breathers that watch his show, and gets paid millions doing so.

But now the tables have turned, and the man who “asks the questions others are afraid to ask,” is being asked a question he is afraid to answer.

Did Glenn Beck Rape And Murder A Young Girl In 1990?

Sure the idea that a man with such boyish good looks would have to force himself on any woman is hard to swallow. He is also a very sensitive man, as he cries at the drop of a hat, so I would think murdering a young girl would be too much for him. Well the truth is, most likely, he did not rape or murder anything other than his knowledge of American history. It was simply an internet meme, that started on FARK.com, to satirize the way he fashions his bogus arguments as questions, to protect himself from litigation. The meme itself was based on a Gilbert Godried joke during the Roast of Bob Sagat.

So imagine our suprise when Glenn got his magic Morman panties in a twist when a young man who goes by “Name Withheld” started a site called http://didglennbeckrapeandmurderayounggirlin1990.com/

On the site, he made it clear that it was a parody site. As I stated before it was just a play on the way Beck makes allegations, then ends them with a question mark to cover his ass. Well Glenn Beck felt it was actioanble. He actually sued the domain name owner. Why you ask? Was it because he thought it was slander, or libel? NO! He sued on the grounds that people might feel that the site was run and owned by Glenn Beck himself. He filed a WIPO complaint, claiming that “Name Withheld” was violating Glenn Becks trademark! Apparently Beck not only lacks journalistic integrity, he also lacks common fucking sense.

Of course “Name Withheld” won the complaint. In addition the suit brought more national, and international attention to the site, and Glenn Beck’s alleged actions in 1990.

In conclusion, I would personally like to say that I in NO way believe that Glenn Beck Raped and Murdered a Girl in 1990.

I just want to hear the son of a bitch deny it!

Congressman Peter King calls Michael Jackson a Pervert

Congressman Pete King feels that we should be honoring the good men and women of our country who have dedicated their lives to helping others and serving our country, not Michael Jackson

About time a politician comes out against this pedophile. Of course he is a Republican, so he is only doing it to appeal to his base, and get in the news.

Republican Alaska Senator Blasts Sarah Palin

According to HUFFPOST Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski ripped palin a new one.

Alaska’s Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski issued a surprisingly harsh statement late on Friday, ripping Gov. Sarah Palin’s decision to leave office at the end of the month. “I am deeply disappointed that the Governor has decided to abandon the State and her constituents before her term has concluded,” Murkowski wrote.

Palin had announced mere months ago that she would help Murkowski raise money for her 2010 Senate race.


I have yet to see on Republican commentator come out and say what Palin did was a smart political move yet. Of course I don’t watch Fox News.

WASHINGTON (CNN) – Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is expected to announce Friday that she will not seek a second term, a Republican source close to Palin tells CNN.

Palin has scheduled a 3 p.m. ET news conference at her home in Wasilla. The governor’s office offered no further details about the subject of the news conference, but the sources tells CNN that Palin will announce her decision to forgo another run.

As the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee, Palin is considered one of the frontrunners for the GOP nomination in 2012. Her decision not to seen another term as governor is sure to stoke speculation that Palin is seriously eyeing a run for the White House.
