Check it out! (thanks to Cathy)

No celebrity collection is complete without a porn star or two. As for the Vinnie Spit track you might not want to play this too loud around the office while Nina Whett only are doing what we all really want to do; drink beer and fuck.
Before the awful Bill Cosby Show hit the airwaves Bill had tried for a career as a singer for a while. His albums are usually just plain boring but there’s one exception. 'The Horray For the Salvation Army Band!' album (Warner Bros. 1968) with this truly awful Jimi Hendrix rip off. Another one who should have known better than to mess with heavy rock was Pat Boone who did an entire albums worth of heavy metal tunes in 1997: 'In a Metal Mood: No More Mr. Nice Guy' (Hip-O Records).
Note: Some of the links above goes to sites NSFW (and that goes of course also for some of the mp3s)

"... Nowadays, Superman's symbol is recognizable all over the world. However, at one time, it was not even a terribly consistently drawn symbol and that is the crux of this article. Prior to trademarking the symbol, it went through a great deal of metamorphosis, as will be discussed. This page is currently under construction and will be updated as information becomes available. ..."
Here is a representation of the first symbol.
Here is a representation of the symbol as it was published circa 1938-1940.
Here is the symbol as it appeared at that time in the comics, circa 1940 (sans the black in the negative areas).

Or maybe the account just got overheated?

'Just kind of chilling out' ... Roky Erickson in You're Gonna Miss Me.
"... When Keven McAlester, a former music journalist, decided to make his first film, You're Gonna Miss Me, he chose one hell of a subject: Roky Erickson, singer with the 13th Floor Elevators, the Texas band credited with inventing psychedelic rock.
Erickson was an angel-faced, charismatic 19-year-old in 1966 when he wrote the hit song of the film's title, and 22 when he was packed off to Rusk State Hospital for the Criminally Insane. At the time, Roky may well have been sane; having the fondness you'd expect for illegal drugs of a 1960s psychedelic rocker, he'd been arrested often and pleaded insanity to escape a long prison term for marijuana possession. When he was released, after three-and-a-half years of electroshock and Thorazine treatment, he was not. Whether the hospital had treated his problems or made them worse, no one knows.
Roky's road to success article and interview ..."
