This deserves better design, but there is no accounting for my lack of artistic taste.



At least they made Jimi a lefty.....years ago I saw a so-called commemorative stamp where Jimi wasn't a lefty....

I'm wondering if this is a Janey Hendrix approved picture, or is this what our governments/Big Bro's want you to remember Jimi and his ilk by picture? Assholes had plenty of pix to pick from but they have to pick the paisley patterns/SF hippie schtick that symbolized '60's drug use to the Other People*! Hendrix wasn't all Purple Haze man, that cat could improvise on all styles of music!!! He fuckin' learned tearing it up with James (on the one) Brown. Heh! Get on down. Heh! STFU music, solid! :wink: No shiiiiit!
He's not smiling, that bothers me too. I don't know why....yet. Maybe Jimi will come to me in a dream? As long as he leaves Jim Morrison at home if he's drunk. If he's trippin' bring him by too. See what I mean? This inspires us "experienced" people to show ourselves, nez' pa? Then we have a flashback! Mwahahahaha. I prefer the Band Of Gypsies year and a half of blues, funk and Buddy Miles' organ < "heh, heh, he said organ" ~ love Butthead.

Rock and roller writers are the worst kind of thing. I hope I didn't cross the border line. :oops:



*Straights...and we're the other people too, love to come and talk to you 8) :mrgreen:

The bill now goes to the House of Delegates, where similar legislation died in committee last year.

I think the Hendrix stamp looks kind of cool. I'm not really a stamp collector, though I've bought a few, and think I'll get a few of these.

There are some Zappa stamps on Ebay:

+1 He's smiling too. Much better for a stamp. Only one thing. Except for us ZappaFreaks here, who else would know about Jimi "The Duck" Hendrix? Everyone would want to know why he's got a bill instead of lips! Or get him confused with Donald "Duck" Dunn. Bonny's is still better than the one they have either way.
I don't think Jimi would want to be called a Hen-Duckx either. I think he'd rather be Jimi Roosterx! :mrgreen:

On Topic: NPR said the Malaysian missing airliner turned around and flew for 7 hours in a westerly or S.W. direction. This is beginning to be a real mystery. With no debris found yet, it looks like this was a planned hijacking that landed or crashed somewhere else. With the signal turned off, they went stealth and could of flown anywhere. I wonder if we'll ever know what really happened.

No, they lost track of it and that's why it's "lost". :mrgreen:


How to track a lost plane> There is no way to track a lost plane. Although there's always someone to who will differ with that, of that I'm sure. :wink:

Read Tintin: "Flight 714"; I think it's Rastapopoulos (or the aliens).

The flight disappeared into The Emerald Triangle of opiated induced haze (purple & green) of officials & police corruption and just plain "we don't know" that's Malaysia or it flew into the far east's version of the Bermuda Triangle. They might have they're own variation on that basic theme, I just don't know the name of such a place in the orient. One must exists though, I'm sure. :?:

Was it an alien porthole? :shock:

Jimi's left hand in this stamp looks muppet-like.

Not like Jimi's at all, long, lean and mean on guitar. This Jimi looks like he's strumming a harp.

Wow ! Someone in this forum who actually know about Tintin, I'm impressed. 8)

By the way, they probably should ask Milou. He saw it all ! :wink:

For those of you who don't know the story of Flight 714, it begins with..

"On a refueling stop in Jakarta, Tintin, Captain Haddock and Professor Calculus are on their way to Sydney when they meet aircraft industrialist and eccentric millionaire Laszlo Carreidas. Unable to politely refuse Carreidas's offer of a lift, Tintin and his friends join the millionaire on his prototype private jet, the Carreidas 160. Unbeknownst to Carreidas and the others, his secretary Spalding and two of the pilots are in a plot to hijack the plane and bring it to a deserted volcanic island in the Lesser Sunda Islands. [The hijackers break off radio contact and, to escape radar detection, they fly at a very low altitude] After a rough landing, while disembarking from the plane, a terrified Snowy bolts from Tintin's arms and runs off. Guards shoot at him, and a horrified Tintin believes that he is killed.
The mastermind of the plot then reveals himself as the evil Rastapopoulos, intent on taking Carreidas' fortune. Captain Haddock's corrupt ex-shipmate, Allan, is present as Rastapopoulos's henchman. The Sondonesians have been hired as mercenaries." Mostly taken from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flight_714

Sound familiar?

(Btw. the aliens come in at the end...)
(@ Mij: I always wondered what happened to Dr Krollspell after he got back to Cairo; did he just resume his practice?)

Is it true Caputh that you played Professor Calculus in the school play, or is that an outragous lie? :wink:




A not so gray ghost was heard to yell run Snowy run!

"I betrayed Professor Calculus to the school gay?" Certainly not!

Caputh, I guess he did, just like the rest of the saved crew.
But what happened to the bad guys ?
Hergé never told.

I have a few Stravinsky stamps somewhere, from back in the day. The only ones I've ever saved.

The Crimean polls have closed and now they're counting the votes. Gee, I wonder who'll win? Annex the Crimea with Russia or no? I think Putin's Russia will take this one in a landslide, without any tanks.* :roll:



*Insert joke here.

Crimeans vote over 90 percent to quit Ukraine for Russia

---Western powers and leaders in Kiev denounced it as a sham.
