New Poll: 24% of Republicans Believe Obama may be the Anti-Christ – WTF?

Fascinating but disturbing numbers in a new Harris Poll out this morning:

67% of Republicans believe Obama is a socialist.   57% believe he is a Socialist.  41% believe he is anti-American.

Maybe more stunning: 15% of Democrats believe he is a Muslim. 14% of Dems believe he is a Socialist.

Maybe we ARE living in end times…

Not safe for Midmo!

Blowfly… what can I say? I can’t say I quite got what I was expecting although in fairness with any touring act who’s been at it fifty some odd years like Fly has, almost anything is possible good or bad. Sometimes instances like this deliver an amazing show leaving you to tell friends and acquaintances that dude’s still got it or at the worst you leave going well, the guy is 71 let’s cut him some slack.

Check out that crazy fingernail!

With the exception of the missing costume I can’t say Blowfly himself let us down. He was vulgar – which quite frankly is what I was there for – and had one unnervingly long fingernail which became more and more difficult to look at as the night drew on as a result of his vivid descriptions of what he likes to do with his fingers. Use your imagination.

Blowfly reciting the ABCs of pussy….

The phrase unicorn pussy was coined which was a high point, as were numerous other quotable quotes which I’m choosing to deem NSFM or not-safe-for-Midmo. I think the primary detractor from BF’s set involved the cheesoid backing band and warm up dude that he travels with these days.

When we rolled up to the club last night I was confronted by a shlubby white guy in an oversized Wu Tang Clan sweatshirt  and saggy oversized jeans who was introduced to me as Uncle Tom, BF’s drummer and ringleader. Not but  a moment after meeting this fellow he began railing about how short sighted Jerry Perry was to have not booked Blowfly years ago at Old I and that I should leave last night’s show and tell Jerry that very thing directly. He also encouraged me to take a photo facing out from the stage so as to rub it in. So there ya go, ya missed out Jerry! yea.

Later in the night said dude was transformed in a manner a la Clark Kent, after donning a patriotically themed, sequined nudie suit of sorts in order to facilitate Blowfly’s set.

Here’s the warm-up dude I spoke of, he likes to rap about making love to people who also like to make love.

Mom was a highlight as always. I am a fan.



Some real live Jugalettes showed up too which was kind of a treat. I can’t say I’ve ever been at a show that had Juggalettes in attendance. Woot!

Finally on the way to the truck after the show Mark Miller and I discover this bonny trash pile behind the Tea Cup Cafe which he named Guernica. I love it!
