Pygmy Mammoths and such

kvetchlandia:
Dr Hunter S Thompson
“When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.”

‘‘Does Column 8 have a contest for the most confusing headlines?’’ asks Nev Sheather, of Canberra.
‘‘If not, maybe you should consider it, and this headline, from the ABC website posted yesterday, may be a good contender: ‘Cucumber truck hits buffalo near jumping crocs.’’’
Data pour in on woolly mammoths (Column 8, yesterday).
David Wallace, of Fresno, California, tells us that ‘‘On the Channel islands off Southern California they have excavated ‘pygmy mammoths’. My absolute favourite oxymoron.’’ And on Monday? All you ever wanted to know about steam calliopes. Oh, no, it never ends …

“There are times, however, and this is one of them, when even being right feels wrong. What do you say, for instance, about a generation that has been taught that rain is poison and sex is death? If making love might be fatal and if a cool spring breeze on any summer afternoon can turn a crystal blue lake into a puddle of black poison right in front of your eyes, there is not much left except TV and relentless masturbation. It’s a strange world. Some people get rich and others eat shit and die.”—Gonzo Papers, Vol. 2: Generation of Swine: Tales of Shame and Degradation in the ’80s, 1988

Allo Akubi...

It’s a strange world...

Yaaaaa... it's full of pygmy mammoths and such...

If I could ride butterfly I would... if I could be a dog I would... absolute fantasy is to ride a deer through the forest...

TV can turn a crystal blue lake into a puddle of black poison right in front of your eyes... that crystal blue lake was your brain...

Rivers of swine pollution flowing around... the people end up looking like pigs with mean little eyes... I just look away and walk on...

Nice quote!

“When the weird gets going, the going gets weird."

No.

"We urge motorists to drive to the conditions, especially at night time when there is low lighting, which in turn, reduces the time to stop."

Everything down under sounds so reasonable...

Dadalada.

Uh oh, Kitty,

Have fun with your dogdogies and guest. :)

I wonder if Hunter was intense looking as a youth? Those eyes...

edgar said...

Flippin' hand cannon, sheesh!

Kitty said...

Yaa Edgar.

Hunter looks very happy with a gun.. yikes.

I feel like I’m addicted to “dog porn” Akubi…

Akira said...

Hi Kitty,
I'm glad you like the dog porn. That should pump our Tumblarity.
As I mentioned in your FYD reblog I reblogged, I don't think my dog aesthetic is on the same wavelength of our 286 followers - other than the ones who were already in The Akubi Zone. My favorite stuff is often ignored.

Just keep tumlring dear akubi... you have the nicest taste... :)
