Don Dixon’s “Praying Mantis”

Talk of bugs that eat their mates automatically reminded me of Don Dixon's one hit, the great "Praying Mantis." If you click here, you should be able to hear the song for free. Warning for those at work or in a quiet zone of some sort: it will start playing automatically.

Girls Together Outrageously

A rock band composed entirely of famous groupies? Such were the GTO's, an acronym for Girls Together Outrageously, and brainchild of Frank Zappa. Unlike, say, the Pussycat Dolls, at least they were honest about their pasts.

Here's their song "The Ghost Chained To The Past, Present and Future (Shock Treatment)," delivered over a series of stills.

Playing for you, Madam

Theory 1) The woman has passed out drunk and the musicians are her hallucination.
Theory 2) She's dead and the musicians are ghosts.
Theory 3) The musicians have broken into her apartment, drugged her, and are now performing a weird fetishistic ritual with her.

Master Jack

For no discernible reason, I had this song running through my head yesterday. I'm thinking of polling Alex and Chuck to see if we can make it the official theme song of WEIRD UNIVERSE.

Read about 4 Jacks and a Jill here.

George Clinton’s Art

Are the paintings created by musician George Clinton especially weird, or just arty weird? They're probably no weirder than the man himself. But only you can decide, by visiting his gallery.

Sonseed

Sonseed never achieved much fame when they were playing together twenty-five years ago, but now they're attracting quite a following on the internet. Once you've seen them perform "Jesus is a friend of mine" you may understand why. The
Dougsploitation blog recently tracked down the lead singer, Sal Polichetti, and interviewed him.

Now it can be told!

Carlos Santana and Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi are one and the same person!

Check out the identical looks to the right! But if seeing is not believing, further proof is offered in this article from today's New York Times, in which "Qaddafi" rhapsodizes about his favorite babe Condoleezza Rice in unmistakeably lyrical terms:




After all, the Libyan leader had professed his “love” for the American secretary of state. “I support my darling black African woman,” Colonel Qaddafi told the network Al Jazeera last year. “I admire and am very proud of the way she leans back and gives orders to the Arab leaders.”

He continued: “Yes, Leezza, Leezza, Leezza... I love her very much.”
