"nice hairdo"

(January 15, 1941 – December 17, 2010)

In memory of Captain Beefheart, sweet chieftain booglarizer of my mutant mental youth. (I also paid his Trout Mask Replica a sideways tribute back in my halcyon hobo days.)

Besides sharing a birthdate, I'd like to think in my better moments I might rise to a bit of his cockamamie elegance. Carry on, carrion, carry on. Got me?
