@RR: For some reason, the actual URLs for profiles get adjusted or changed from time to time. The computer is so smart or stupid that it keeps track only of whether or not you've been to that exact URL, not the new URL a given profile has been changed to.

Many times people whose profile I've been on turn virginal again, and I re-befoul them by clicking on them, which changes them back to the "been there done that" color again

Avatar Wed. 5/15/13 10:00am Rob Weisberg:

Y'know, while the Velvet Underground more and Stooges both were seminal influences for me and others my age (and the VU moreso really), it's kind of interesting to hear Iggy sing ANYTHING (even now), particularly if it's a little out of his usual milieu - and that's definitely NOT the case with Lou Reed, in my opinion anyway. Not to say Iggy too hasn't done some awful stuff, but it's just that voice... I'm always curious to hear what happens when he applies it to something unusual.

On 'Funhouse' when Iggy says 'take it down!' it's so we can hear hm actually sing. He's a Post-JimMorrison-PostSinatra-PostCrosby *Crooner* - it's a tradition. I said before the Shanty thing reminds me: Iggy said Johnny Cash's minimal intensity was a Stooges influence - which I love for tearing down degrees of seperation...

Hello all! So, gif check:
-McGoohan playing drums in the must-see Shakespeare-retelling "All Night Long". Recommended for jazz fans, what with Brubeck, Mingus, Dankworth etc. being in the film.
-Head check lady is historical footage, but you can find it in the mental health documentary "Feed Your Head".
-Electric hoods are from 1956's "The Gamma People", for those who want the non-Hulk version of what happens to people when you expose them to gamma rays. Recommended Brit scifi/horror/evil scientist stuff.
-"Data's Cat" gif is from the 1935 documentary short "Misiones pedagogicas: Vibración de Granada".
