He was king of the mid-late 80’s neon lit dark weirdness, with coked out new wave comedy pushin’ the limits of good taste and reachin’ new levels of erotic nonsense. Here are the top ones, I think you can buy the last two on DVD.
“The plot is this, 5 black guys sit around talking about how awesome white girls are in bed. One guy has never done a white girl and says they don’t turn him on. So as each guy relates his story we go into a flashback that is the sex scene. The scenes are funny with one scene including a man eating cake off of a woman’s nether regions and marveling at how delicious it is. Finally they get the one guy to take on a white girl at the end of the film.” –IMDB
“the infamous Dark Bros. are going to unlock the door to your imagination. Beyond it lies another dimension: a dimension of sex, passion and uncompromising eroticism. Past the prostitute up ahead, your next stop… “New Wave Hookers”!
Black hustler Jamal and his punk friend Jimmy fall asleep in front of the TV and share a dream of bone-stiffening proportions: As the proprietors of an outrageous call girl service, they use the hottest new-wave tunes to get their girls hot and bothered.
Once they are worked up, the girls set the town ablaze in a flesh fest of heretofore unseen proportions. These gorgeous girls become the sexperts of the new dimention, trapped in a madcap world where all their secret desires are mercilessly unleashed.” – from the box

I’ve been kinda obsessed with this retarded white tiger named ‘Kenny’ ever since I first saw a picture of his snaggle-toothed maw.
So, I started diggin’ to find out more, and discovered his last name was ‘Rogers’!
Haaah! Kenny Rogers! I guess he does bear some resemblance to the ‘Gambler’/ Country music legend/plastic surgery disaster.
Kenny also has a orange brother who is more mentally fucked then him, named, get this, ‘Willie Nelson‘! Seems that they are both the siblings of a pair of white tigers named Loretta Lynn & Conway Twitty, who were brother and sister. It’s like a whole feline incest Grand Ole Opry!
White tigers are freaks of nature. They occur when there’s massive inbreedin’, so most of ’em are a lil’ funny.
Iron Mike chokes out a white tiger he once owned. I heard a story that when he was havin’ financial troubles, he fired the tiger’s trainer, but kept the tiger. Supposedly he ended up bein’ pinned down and raped by the massive feline. Who knows if it’s true, but it makes for a wild visual!
Mike has issues with the animal kingdom, check this out: “I paid a worker at New York’s zoo to re-open it just for me and Robin. When we got to the gorilla cage there was 1 big silverback gorilla there just bullying all the other gorillas. They were so powerful but their eyes were like an innocent infant. I offered the attendant $10,000 to open the cage and let smash that silverback’s snotbox! He declined.”
Another famous white tiger is Montecore, the one who did mankind and exploited white tigerkind a favor when he ‘accidently’ mauled Roy Horn of Seigfried and Roy in 2003, thus endin’ the long run of their fruity Euro magic show at the Mirage. No more frosted Krauts to demean the proud pride by makin’ them minions. “there was a woman with a “big hairdo” in the front row who, he says, “fascinated and distracted” Montecore. The woman reached out to attempt to pet the animal, and Roy jumped between the woman and the tiger.” NomNomNom. What a Vegas exit!
As for Kenny, it seems he has has gone the way of Kenny Rogers Roasters, there’s no info about him on the Turpentine Creek website, where he was relocated a few years back. I hope yer in a better place, my special tiger friend.

“With their new singer, Black Flag and The Minutemen made their first tour of Europe in the Winter of 1981. During that tour, the band met punk icon Richard Hell and opened a concert for him. Rollins later published his diaries from that tour in his book Get In The Van. As the front man, Rollins was a frequent target of violent audience members, and became known for fist-fights with audience members. Rollins developed a distinct showmanship on stage, where he could entertain an audience just by talking to them.
As the band was about to return home from the European tour, UK customs detained Colombian drummer Robo due to visa problems, and he was not allowed back into the country. This would be the end of his tenure with the band (he eventually was able to get back into the United States and in 1983 would join The Misfits as their drummer). The loss of Robo temporarily put an end to extensive touring for a while. Emil Johnson of the Twisted Roots filled in for one tour, but it was clear he was only temporary.
While on that tour in Vancouver, the band found out that drummer Chuck Biscuits was leaving D.O.A.. He was quickly drafted onboard, traveling with the band for the rest of the tour (cut short because of Henry Rollins’ twisted knee) to learn the songs. This lineup recorded the later-bootlegged cassette 1982 Demos, showing the direction the band would go in for the My War LP.
However, due to personality conflicts — In Get In The Van,, Rollins described Biscuits as a “fuck up” — and the Unicorn court injunction-forced inactivity of Black Flag, Biscuits left to join their rivals The Circle Jerks. (Later, Biscuits joined ex-Misfits singer Glenn Danzig’s solo project Danzig). Black Flag eventually got Bill Stevenson of The Descendents to join permanently (he had filled in from time-to-time before). While the Unicorn Records court injunction prevented the group from releasing a new studio album, they nonetheless continued to work on new material, and embarked on a period which would mark a pronounced change in the group’s direction (and that of underground music in general).
It is possible that the violence of the previous tour had an effect on the band’s direction. The group had also become increasingly interested in music other than punk rock, such as The Jimi Hendrix Experience, and some of the members (particularly Ginn) used cannabis. (However, various members had been fans of such music long before Black Flag, with Ginn being an avid Grateful Dead fan, and Cadena a fan of Hawkwind.) Newer material (which can be heard on The 1982 Demos bootleg) was slower and less like typical punk music, with classic rock and blues influences seeping in. Cadena left to form his own band DC3. He would take some of the new songs he had written for Black Flag with him and record them for DC3’s first album.” – Wiki
“While embroiled in a bitter lawsuit with Unicorn Records that cost a countless and overwhelming amount of hours and dollars, the label slapped an injunction against the band, preventing them from recording and releasing under the name Black Flag. Under clear threat of law, in 1982, following the release of the landmark album Damaged, Black Flag snuck into the studio to record songs that would ultimately compose both the My War, and Slip It In records. These are the only recordings the band made with possibly their strongest lineup: Henry Rollins on vocals, Greg Ginn and Dez Cadena on guitar, Chuck Dukowski on bass, and Chuck Biscuits on drums. These versions are far more vital and uncontainable than those that would ultimately end up on the official SST releases. Cadena’s visceral rhythm is the perfect counterpoint to Ginn’s damaging, stinging, cascading leads, while Biscuits’ drumming paired with Dukowski’s muscular bass is a more feral Phil Rudd-Cliff Williams combo. Though only a bootleg, this is the most visceral and brutal set of Black Flag recordings available. Also included are two songs that never made it past this demo stage: “What Can You Believe?” and the angular “Yes, I Know.” There is also the added bonus of a 1984 Radio Tokyo studio session and interview.” – AMG

The founder of the magazine Famous Monsters of Filmland and avid collector of Hollywood horror memorabilia died December 4th.
As a kid I was greatly influenced by this magazine. The cover illustrations were enough to burn an evil image into my impressionable grey matter. The creature features helped twist my developin’ mind, hippin’ me to a whole history of cult movies that I had a undyin’ hunger to consume.
The typography of the mag alone was somethin’ else. Hand drawn horror fonts galore! The headline copy read like the way old radio DJ’s , like Wolfman Jack, talked, jokey puns and alliteration, creatin’ an hip insiders vibe that no other mag could copy.
The Misfits logo is a direct bite offa the magazine logo.
The Ackermonster popularized Monster culture and Horror/Sci-Fi fandom, layin’ the groundwork for better or worse, for today’s nerd hyper-collectors, Trekkies, and convention fanboy types, by creating a worldwide network of horror/fantasy/science fiction fans, this was in the pre-internet, pre-video store, pre-digital era.
