Spend Halloween Night With The Missionary Position, Shawn Smith & The Undead Burlesque! At Highway 99 Blues Club

Oh how the immortal Phantoms crowd around me! 
What charm thy music works! 
I see the vast alembic ever working 
I see and know the flames that heat the world 
The glow, the blush, the beating hearts of lovers 
So blissful  happy some, and some so silent, dark and nigh to death
Love, that is all the earth to lovers 
Love-that mocks time and space 
Love that is day and night
Love that is sun, moon, and stars
Love that is crimson, sumptuous, sick with perfume
No other words but words of love 
No other thoughts but love tonight 

from The Mystic Trumpeter
Walt Whitman

Celebrate John Lennon's Birthday Tonight at Columbia City Theater for " Come Together for the Planet 2 " with an Amazing Line-Up and Art Auction for Climate Solutions with Lennon Music Performed Kathy Moore, R.L. Heyer and Many More!

When you look at iconic images like this one of John Lennon, on a day like today -- his birthday -- and also another day in American history where we are no closer to having peace in the world than we were in 1969, it tends to hit home and the spirit of John, and all the music he created alone and with The Beatles, asks you to ask yourself, "How have I made a difference? Can I do more?"

Chris Cornell and Tom Morello Set El Corazon on Fire! Here's The Whole Enchilada!

Chris Cornell and Tom Morello on stage at Seattle's El Corazon 

You all came here to get the big story, maybe expecting an open letter to The Mustache or even a Dr. Seuss-inspired poem about him (maybe for Christmas).  But you -- much like The Beatles, were wrong! I did, however, include my New Mexico Hatch green and red chili enchilada recipe just for kicks! 

 Chris Cornell joined forces with Tom Morello last Friday night at El Corazon in support of Seattle's 15 Now campaign. Here is a half ass monkey's view of the show, artistically pieced together for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy... and All Hail The Mustache!
