About Me

My photo
Adalbert is a forum for me, to post ephemera, photography, poetry, occasional travel notes, and various spontaneous motions. Cover photo: Parsonage where my great-grandfather spent his early years. Taken near Liegnitz, Silesia, ca. 1870. The "xothique" portion of the web address is a nod to Clark Ashton Smith's fictional continent of Zothique.

Poetry for All, Oddities 2, 1982

Poetry of Foster Omar Anderson, Larry Keim, Paul S. Colvin, Duane Hall, and Doug Gilford, who has since done such projects as the Mad Cover Site: madcoversite.com (as well as having worked on the partly made-in-Portland, overlooked little Alan Parker gem, Come see the Paradise).

The comment, "Rock Musicians limit themselves to jackhammers," was something I felt compelled to add at some point.

I'd like to refudiate "undoubtably."
Moammar, Moammar, we hardly knew ye. I remember a clip on the short-lived Fridays show, well before even the "Mad Dog of the the Middle East" Reagan bombing era, with somebody singing "The Qadafi Look" and an actor in some kind of white suit and sunglasses
posing, with the line "Drink your coffee with Qadafi." This bit is not on Youtube --at least, I couldn't find it.

A while back saw a bumper sticker on a large glossy pickup, reading, "A village in Kenya is missing its idiot," along with one involving an obscene suggestion regarding Obama and the camel he rode in on. Curious to see who would display such lighthearted thoughts, I looked up and saw a grey-haired white man about 60, a look of distant blankness on his face.
