Website blues

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 01:33:29 +0000

The website appears to be hacked by some outside forces, and I’m not quite sure how to fix the problem, but I was able to get it working again with a different WordPress theme. Stand by as I try to figure this stuff out…



Fundraiser for Stretch Riedle (aka “give the drummer some”) – LOUIEs of the Week

Sat, 02 Dec 2017 11:07:58 +0000

One week ago, my good friend Jeff Riedle (aka “Stretch“), who’s been a major advisor to the LOUIE project, suffered a cardiac arrest on Saturday night, and has been in the hospital ever since. Actually, I think he just got moved from one hospital to another. It has been a very hectic week… Stretch is […]

This week, the mighty LOUIE spotlight is pointed at William Shatner‘s inspired rendition of The Cramps‘ “Garbage Man.” Or as Captain Kirk might say, this rendition may …“Boldly Go Where No Garbage Man Has Gone Before…” This recording is from the upcoming “Dr. Demento Covered in Punk” compilation being released by Demented Punk Records on […]



RIP: Stephen Parr, owner of Oddball Films

Wed, 08 Nov 2017 22:37:00 +0000

We lost another friend. Stephen Parr was someone I’ve known for many years. Stephen owned Oddball Films, a stock footage company in San Francisco that supplied a lot of wonderfully quirky material for a lot of different film productions. Before Stephen was running Oddball, I knew him as the guy who assembled some of liveliest […]



Celebrating the legacy of Fats Domino (RIP)

Thu, 02 Nov 2017 23:01:28 +0000

We lost Fats Domino last week. He was an early pioneer of the music genre we call “rock ‘n’ roll music,” and became one of the first rhythm and blues musicians to gain popularity with white audiences. Fats sold more than 60 million records, with more hit records between 1950 and 1963 than Chuck Berry, […]

Last month, we lost Hugh Hefner, the creator of Playboy magazine. A lot of things have been written about this man and the empire he created. When he started this magazine his initial goal was simply to create a publication that featured the best writers, some great cartoonists and some beautiful photos of some lovely […]
