Yeah, apparently a nasty flesh eating virus... One morbid thinking that occurs to me is the likeness of his passing to their imagery and themes in the band...

I wonder what would Zappa say about the case of three young teen retards (no offence meant to mentally impaired persons of a more clinical nature) that drugged and cruelly killed a girl. Don't know the details but the girl's family sued Slayer (which was dismissed by the judge).

Even though I hate to kill animals for no reason, I killed a dangerous and big species of spider here in the premises the other day...

What sort of spider is that and what does it take to kill them?

Phoneutria sp.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brazilian_wandering_spider

In my case, all it took was a sweep handle and the unfortunate (for her) position which she put herself (right on the corner). This spider is popularly known as the "jumper", since it prepares itself on a characteristic attack position and is know to perform long jumps towards its target:

Image

It was not threatened or threatening me at the moment, but since it could go unnoticed, it could have caused a serious accident. Its poison is not a toy at all:

Image

On a good note its venon (the most powerful spider venon known) has a component many times stronger than v-i-a-g-a-r-a (anti spam spelling). Some men bitten suffer from prolonged erection!

According to that Wiki page, such erections can last hours, are extremely painful and can lead to impotence. Not worth having a go.
In 2008 they found one of those in the north of The Netherlands, among the bananas in the supermarket. The critter was locked in a jar and sat on the counter for a day, then it was picked up by vets.
Who drowned him. I feel kinda bad for him.

Even Mike Nesmith likes the Monkees now. Either that or he went broke. He is touring with the surviving members near here. All 3 of them together again. :shock: :lol:


I pity the poor Black Widow fool that comes across any S. American Jumper. (Wondering Brazilian Spider)

Black widows are very common here, but we also have the kiss of death called the Brown Recluse, sometimes people don't know they were bit until its to late... :smoke:

The Brown Recluse, sounds just like a girl I once knew, though I did feel her bite on more than one occasion and still have the scars...

hahaha no no, she was actually a very beautiful girl (a little out of my league) but her sudden mood swings could be frightening. She had a habit of throwing what ever was at hand in my general direction, cups, plates, saucepans, pot plants, on one occasion a 25 pound brass sitting buddha statue...When she was good she was very very good, but when she was bad she was accurate, hahaha kept me on my toes for about three years before we parted company...She was under the impression that if I was not within her line of sight, I was having an affair!!! which was completely untrue. A couple of years later we bumped into each other at a party, and much to my surprise the lady in question had developed a fondness for another lady, who was a mutual friend, I wished them both well and, as I took cover behind the sofa, asked If I, just for old times sake, could join in or even just watch. Luckily for me they both got the joke and didn't throw me through the window.

His tricks weren't cheap and there never were visible nylon strings attached to the jaw of a giant spider...
He was such a legend, i didn't even know that he was still alive until i read the sad news this morning.

Dean Jeffries, who created some of the most fun and wild custom cars of the last half century, has died. He was 80.
