Heinrich Hoffman’s Contribution To The World

Sunday, 14 September 2014

Harriet & The Matches

 “The Dreadful Story about Harriet and the Matches”
from Der Struwwelpeter (1845) a popular German children’s book by Heinrich Hoffmann.

Hoffmann was the German precursor to Charles Addams, writing and illustrating short stories/poems for children that can only be described as violent and bizarre. Judging by his popularity, both children and adults loved them (and still do) and he was translated into many languages. Mark Twain’s English translation was published posthumously, and he took some liberties to make the stories rhyme.

Check out Hoffman’s “Die Geschichte vom Daumenlutscher” or “The Story of Little Suck-a-Thumb.”

Hoffman, besides being a writer of satire for both children and adults, despised authoritarianism (he even did a lampoon of Adolf Hitler), worked as a psychiatrist in an insane asylum treating paupers. His Wiki bio is interesting.

Saturday Matinee – The Temptations & Edwin Starr, Eric Burdon & War, and Seasick Steve

Saturday, 13 September 2014

Edwin Starr lip-synched the classic song “War” in 1969. Good God, y’all. Originally recorded by The Temptations, their version was squelched and re-recorded with Starr on vocals. It made No.1 on the charts in 1970, and was one of 161 songs on the Clear Channel no-play list after September 11, 2001 according to Wiki.

Nobody wants war except our enemies, and to ignore their stated intents and stated goals is fatal. Seems to me that if they want to kill all of us, all Jews, all of Western Civilization, we’re going to have a very long fight.

Eric Burdon & WAR was awesome.

Seasick Steve jams pure awesome swamp rock with an electric Diddley Bow.

That’ll do it for today. Have a great weekend folks.

Sand x250

Sand magnified 250x. Any small sample of sand may be traced to it’s global location by its mix. For example, the more purple the sand is the more likely that the sample was taken from the Purple Islands.

Controlling Your Every Movement

“Hey. I have an idea. Let’s go to the bathroom together and I’ll take a photo of you sitting on the toilet. Look all sultry and slutty, and we’ll post it on the internest.”

“Um. Okay. But you’re not really gonna post it, right?”

“Naw.”
