And for My Next Number...

"Variations in the Style of Liberace on 'Rocky Racoon'"...

Sometimes you look at pictures - such as this intriguing snap from 1955 - and realize anew that the past is, indeed, another country.


  1. Will you also be playing MJ's favorite song? Clear The Saloon by Debussy?

  2. i look at my reflection and know
    that the past is another country.

    why the fuck didn't my mother
    pose me in front of a baby baby like this?

  3. And speaking of Rocky Raccoon, you know that verse where they sing, Rocky Raccoon checked into his room
    Only to find Gideon's bible

    Now you’ll find this on your bedside table.

    The world really has changed.

  4. ...and mostly for the better.

    I just love this image. I imagine the racoon doing a spot-on Liberace: "Like my fur coat? You ought to - you paid for it!"
