Comedian Jim Carrey Mocks Lindsey Graham

September 28, 2018: @JimCarrey says: "Ever wonder why women don’t report sexual abuse? Look no further than the hideous and hateful face of Lindsey Graham who offered nothing but anger and absolute disdain to Dr. Christine Blasey Ford following her courageous, and very credible, testimony. Talk about 'a disgrace.' "

September 25, 2018: @JimCarrey says: "The monster is out of control. Vote for your lives!  "

September 24, 2028: @JimCarrey says: "Colleges care more about donors than the victims of on-campus rape. That's why women don't report it and why ENTITLED LITTLE SHITS like Injustice Kavanaugh get to party and pillage their way to the Supreme Court.I'd like to suggest a new uniform for the highest court in the land."

September 17, 2018: @JimCarrey says: "Republicans always look out for each other."

Cool, New Songs By Richard Ashcroft: "Surprised By Joy" & "Born To Be Strangers"

"Surprised By The Joy" is the first single from Richard Ashcroft's forthcoming album Natural Rebel out October 18, 2018.
Pre-Order It Here...

Here's the audio for the second single "Born To Be Strangers":

Richard Ashcroft belongs to that special category of "Hugely Famous in The UK/Couldn't Get Arrested in America" (unfortunately). In America, he's primarily known as the genius behind The Verve's "Bittersweet Symphony", which besides being a great song, will go down in history for the monkeyshines going on behind the scenes with Allen Klein ultimately "winning" credit for the song for Mick Jagger and Keith Richards and the lion's share of the royalties for (as Harrison warned, beware of) ABKCO, Klein's company. Truly one of the great rock n roll swindles of all-time.

The good news is that despite that blow, Richard Ashcroft has continued to make amazing music.

This new album promises to be fantastic. Something to look forward to.

Video: John & George Record Anti-Paul Slam "How Do You Sleep?"; New "Imagine" Boxset

1971, John Lennon's second solo album Imagine is recorded. George Harrison joins Lennon on a thinly veiled screed against former bandmate Paul McCartney --- the brutal How Do You Sleep?

A new, forthcoming Imagine boxset includes these takes as well as much, much more. It contains 4 CDs, 2 Blue Ray DVDs, and a 120-page booklet.

Personnel on "How Do You Sleep?":

[Verse 1]
So Sgt. Pepper took you by surprise
You better see right through that mother's eyes
Those freaks was right when they said you was dead
The one mistake you made was in your head

Ah, how do you sleep?
Ah, how do you sleep at night?

[Verse 2]
You live with straights who tell you you was king
Jump when your momma tell you anything
The only thing you done was yesterday
And since you're gone you're just another day

Ah, how do you sleep?
Ah, how do you sleep at night?

[Instrumental Break]

Ah, how do you sleep?
Ah, how do you sleep at night?

[Verse 3]
A pretty face may last a year or two
But pretty soon they'll see what you can do
The sound you make is muzak to my ears
You must have learned something in all those years

Ah, how do you sleep?
Ah, how do you sleep at night?

Courtney Barnett Acoustic On House of Strombo: "Sunday Roast", "Nameless Faceless", "Need A Little Time"

Jim Carrey Says, "Kava-NO!" to Kavanaugh...

@JimCarrey (Sept. 17, 2018) says: "Republicans always look out for each other..."

@JimCarrey (Sept. 5, 2018) says: "Thank you for just doing it." 

@JimCarrey (Sept. 2, 2018) says: "Donald Trump is now inciting civil unrest at his rallies, threatening the safety of our citizens. A real President doesn’t do this. A real congress won’t allow him to."

@JimCarrey (Aug. 28, 2018) says: "Upon closer examination of the ultrasound the Planned Parenthood staff began to wonder if the terminated fetus actually belonged to Elliot Broidy. Or if the father was slightly more famous."

@JimCarrey (Aug. 23, 2018) says:
