May the Sun of Summer warm your Soul!
At 12:00 Noon.
It was coming down pretty heavy.
Parade started at 1:00 pm – rain or shine.
Apparently Mermaids don’t melt.
At 4:00 pm?
It was a Maine lobster town— each morning boatloads of hands pushed off for granite quarries on the islands, and left dozens of bleak white frame houses stuck like oyster shells on a hill of rock, and below us, the sea lapped the raw little match-stick mazes of a weir, where the fish for bait were trapped. Remember? We sat on a slab of rock. From this distance in time it seems the color of iris, rotting and turning purpler, but it was only the usual gray rock turning the usual green when drenched by the sea. The sea drenched the rock at our feet all day, and kept tearing away flake after flake. One night you dreamed you were a mermaid clinging to a wharf-pile, and trying to pull off the barnacles with your hands. We wished our two souls might return like gulls to the rock. In the end, the water was too cold for us.
This could be interesting for presentation or an absolute disaster…
Does it hit the “top” for my GLITTER GLAMOURS?!?!
Apparently it is in the 2017 Music Festival clothing kit~
(is it like sand? does it get in weird places?)

A risqué illustration featuring 64 Disney characters showed up in Paul Krassner’s satirical US publication, The Realist, 50 years ago.
Originally published out of the offices of Mad, The Realist lays serious claim to being the world’s first and longest surviving underground magazine, running from 1958 to 2001.
In 2007, Krassner recounted to The Guardian how he was inspired to commission the drawing by Disney’s death in 1966:
“I decided to visit Disneyland for the first time. I asked the head of security if there was any special ceremony to mark his death.
“‘No,’ he replied. ‘We kept the park open. We felt that Mr Disney would have wanted it that way.’ This was the moment I realised that, although Disney had served as the Intelligent Designer for a whole stable of imaginary characters – repressing their libidos in the process – they were now mourning for him in a state of suspended animation.
“When I got home, I called Wally Wood, a staff artist for Mad magazine, and assigned him to create a black-and-white montage for the middle two pages of the May 1967 issue.”<
The artwork inspired irreverent t-shirts with Snow White and “the Sir Punks”, plus Minnie and Mickey going at it selling at Seditionaries. This was one of a number of graphics introduced into the historic store at 430 King’s Road early in 1978 by Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood.
