People of the State Verses Me.
People of the State of New York versus Me
Justice Court proposed that I come in for a visit. A few months ago I had accepted a special speeding ticket in the Jammy Jar and with it received the invitation. I got up at 6:00 am and drove two hours north to the New Englandy court room where they mostly handle traffic tickets and the occational witch trial. The judge, "Hanging Harry" (I bonded with some of the other speeders who informed me of his moniker) led me out to the town square where the villagers taught me a serious lesson. Then I paid my fine, recieved some bonus points, and drove back to the city.
Daily Mirror 23 September 2005 EXCLUSIVE: SWOOP ON THE MOSSY POSSE Model's close circle to be quizzed by police over drug use By Graham Brough KATE Moss and her celebrity friends are to be quizzed by police over alleged drug abuse. The Mossy Posse - including junkie lover Pete Doherty - will be interviewed following the Mirror's revelations about the model's cocaine habit. The probe is likely to involve stars such as clothes designer Sadie Frost, her ex-boyfriend Jackson Scott and actress Davinia Taylor. Other friends belonging to the Primrose Hill set of North London where Moss lives are also expected to be dragged into the inquiry. Police are preparing a file on the former £4-million-a-year catwalk queen that will be sent to the Crown Prosecution Service, which will decide whether to press charges. Maximum penalty for possessing cocaine is six months' jail, a £5,000 fine or both. Police will be talking to Doherty and his Baby- shambles band - guitarist Patrick Walden, bass player Drew McConnell and drummer Adam Ficek. They will also want to speak to former Clash guitarist Mick Jones, who is producing the band's latest album. The punk rock legend was seen snorting coke with Kate and Doherty at a recording studio in West London. A spokeswoman for the Crown Prosecution Service said yesterday: "The police will investigate and send a file to us and we will decide whether to prosecute. We have received nothing yet but have been told a file is beingEXPOSED: Our exclusive prepared." Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Ian Blair dropped a heavy hint on Tuesday that Kate may face prosecution. He revealed at a police conference in Warwickshire that he had personally ordered the investigation. Sir Ian said: "We have to look at the impact this kind of behaviour has on impressionable young people - and, if there is evidence, something should be done about it." He added: "I can remember being asked a question about a previous individual who was given a caution. I think that was a wrong decision." Last September, Princess Diana's former lover James Hewitt was let off with a caution for possession of cocaine. Although the Met has a policy of pursuing drug dealers rather than users, those rules were "adaptable to the impact of events", Sir Ian said. Kate suffered another blow yesterday as make-up firm, Rimmel - which has used her in campaigns since 2001 - fell into line with a host of other firms which have already axed her. They are understood to have bowed to pressure by Boots, which sells its products across the country. A spokeswoman said: "Rimmel London is shocked and dismayed by the recent allegations surrounding Kate Moss. We are currently reviewing her contract." Two days ago, Rimmel, which targets young women, said it planned to continue its association with Croydon-born Kate. H&M - Europe's largest fashion retailer - was the first to drop her from an upcoming ad campaign. Then Chanel said it would not renew her £750,000-a-year contract as the face of perfume Coco Mademoiselle. And Burberry, which pays her about £400,000-a-year, also announced it had cancelled and was "saddened by her current circumstances". Meanwhile it emerged that her crackhead lover Doherty, 26, caused havoc on a holiday flight to Stansted airport from Ibiza last Saturday - after he had trashed a villa causing £5,000 damage in a drink and drugs binge. He swigged vodka, abused fellow passengers and even appeared to light a cigarette on the easyJet flight. A fellow passenger said: "He put his jacket over his head and the smell of smoke wafted out.

With her blonde hair hanging untidily around her shoulders, the model icon, worth £30million, prepares up to 20 lines of coke in just 40 minutes. Using a mammoth stash, which she kept safely wrapped in her handbag, Kate - mother of a two-year-old daughter - has no qualms about being seen with the illegal drugs. Doherty and some of his mates mill around, eager to join the binge and impatiently asking to help prepare the drugs. -Daily Mirror
And what about that McCarther, woah. I would never in 100,000 years have thought... I was psyched for Judy Pfaff getting it last year, I liked that an older artist who isn't necessarily making tons of money on their work and whos work is expensive to make got it. I was actually really amazed how brilliant that choice was. But Julie Mehertu? Hummmm...

Punk girl band The Mo-dettes formed in '79. I dig their song White Mice which can be found on the first Rough trade shop compilation. I found info about them and a snippit of this great tune on this webpage dedicated to women of 70's punk. I played this song on David Humphery's Wps1 radio show on friday (more on that later).
"Guitarist Kate Korus, who had previously played with the all-female bands the Castrators and also Slits.... Bassist Jane Crockford was a teenage runaway whose claim to fame was briefly sharing a flat with Sid Vicious and Johnny Rotten." -Woman of 70's Punk

Jaw Bone of a Jackass
Is it any surprise that the Almighty chose to strike at Miss Degeneres hometown? Robertson also noted that the last time Degeneres hosted the Emmys, in 2001, the September 11 terrorism attacks took place shortly before the ceremony. This is the second time in a row that God has invoked a disaster shortly before lesbian Ellen Degeneres hosted the Emmy Awards, Robertson explained to his approximately one million viewers.
Pat Robertson on Sunday said that Hurricane Katrina was God¹s way of expressing its anger at the
and Sciences for its selection of Ellen Degeneres to host this year¹s Emmy Awards. Academyof Television Arts
By choosing an avowed lesbian for this national event, these
Hollywoodelites have clearly invited God¹s wrath, Robertson said on The 700 Club on Sunday. sorry to be waisting time with this, but the leader of the Christian Taliban is out of control.
Now we know why things took a turn for the worse, he explained.
In order to avoid further tragedy, Robertson called not only for the

i don't think they need anyone more now since they are trying to close these sites and kick them all out, slowly. so free medical care is discouraged. i mean, they are black afterall. i'm doing some clinical work and am mostly doing a study. i got a quick response grant from National Science foundation/FEMa so collecting taped narratives about what prevented evacuation before the storm.
I've been looking up some material on the Lisbon earthquake in 1755. It killed most of the population of Lisbon and it happened on a Sunday AM with everyone in the church. At that time Lisbon was the 4th largest city in Europe. It was the first major catastrophic event that was explained by "scientific reason" rather than theological principles. God wasn't going to take the blame. There was a debate between Voltaire and Rousseau about the question of God allowing bad things to happen. Interesting piece of history re the progress of modern thinking. Well, God knows, but all catastrophic tragedy needs to end with "The Blame Game". The right wing preachers have a great topic for Sunday sermonizing. The sins of New Orleans and all that jazz.As long as were on about the Cub family, brother Josh just won the Web Marketing Associations achievment award for outstanding website design, for this site. If anyone out there is looking to have a website made, Josh is your man, he's also working on a new site for Canyon Ranch Spa at the moment. Post a message or email me if you want to get in touch with Josh and get yourself a top-notch website.

...or a glimps at my autumnal fashion-forward wardrobe? New York magazing says people walk faster in the fall, but are we sure these "fast-walkers" aren't just roller skating like foxy robots, slipping along polished sidewalks to the disturbing sounds of Irving Berlin sung by computers? (Thanks Danny. Now, resume your blog please)
When you are right you cannot be too radical: when you are wrong you cannot be too conservative
-Martin Luther King Jr.
I was an Arnold fan before he became Governor of California. I collected muscle magazines from the 70's and 80's that featured him, using pics as references for figures in my work, often changing his body into an amazon or whatever. How could you not be blown away by his body in Pumping Iron, or love him in Terminator, Total recall, the Running Man, and True Lies? He was such a great superhero, too bad he turned out to be just another pandering politico. Here's my analysis of whats going on with the gay marriage bill he's about to Veto; Basically he's an giant dickweed for selling out the gay vote in California which helped put him into office, also a WIMP for bowing down to the conservatives whose asses he thinks he must lick so to get re-elected which probably won't happen anyway because his approval rating is at an all time low and polls in California show that he wouldn't get re-elected if he tried.

Looting is a common problem after flooding or hurricanes, so someone please tell the motherfuckers at CNN that this aint some crazy really crazy unheard of totally unanticipated occurrence. Rather than run footage of people running out of stores, couldnt they have an interview where they ask real questions of a public official? Could one of those overpaid undereducated assholes in Atlanta ask what the fucking plan is?The mayor of New Orleans is heard weeping at the end of a radio interview begging for help... I'm stunned and sad and confused as to why it's been so hard to get help to these people. And now the right is saying we're politicizing this this and using it as an excuse to criticize the governments response, well uh, yeah, it's our government and if it fucks up we should assess it. Those in control dump money into the "war on terror" meanwhile today's NYTs
Also the State of Louisiana paid absolutely no attention at all to how an evacuation of the "low-mobility population" would go in a situation like this. It's too heartbreaking... Mrs.Cub and I are giving money to the Red Cross, but I wish I could helicopter down there and start busting roofs open with a giant ax and airlift people to safety. The way the goverment has responded is heartnreaking, Bush couldn't care less, he said zero tollerance for looters, shoot to kill, but whos getting them water? I hope it gets better today cause yesterday was completly fucked up.
Some lapses may have occurred because of budget cuts. For example, Mr. Tolbert, the former FEMA official, said that "funding dried up" for follow-up to the 2004 Hurricane Pam exercise, cutting off work on plans to shelter thousands of survivors.

Dr. Laurie Woks, A.K.A. Dr. Wave, A.K.A. "Fishmonger" A.K.A. "Surf Monkey", ringleader/provocateur of the notorious west coast "Thrashers" ran into some trouble yesterday while blasting through the g-spot of a totally outragous tube or "cooking in the green room" as Dr. Wave might put, it if she were able to speak.
"I stuck my fist and forearm into a jellyfish the size of Shaquille O'Neill's codpiece last night and my arm just about exploded in pain."
While some people think it might be funny to be attacked by giant jellyfish, and make puppet shows about it, most of us realize this is serious business. Get well soon Weeksie...
