Judith Miller (born 1941) is a French philosopher, and the daughter of Jacques Lacan — radical psychoanalyst, and wife to prominent Lacanian Jacques-Alain Miller. As a Maoist philosophy lecturer at Vincennes in Paris, her radicalism was used as a reason for her philosophy department to be decertified.[1] This occurred after she handed out course credit to someone she met on a bus

The album's cover artwork features a photo of Donald Fagen as a deejay wearing a collared shirt and tie, speaking into a microphone (an RCA 77DX). Before him lies a turntable (16 inch '50s model, with a Para-Flux A-16 tonearm), an ashtray, and a pack of Chesterfield King cigarettes. Visible on the table with the record player, is the cover of the 1958 jazz album Sonny Rollins and the Contemporary Leaders (also credited in the liner notes). On the wall behind Fagen is a large clock, indicating that the time is 4:09.

According to the medical coroner, Charles' body "contained not a single drop of blood, his heart looked like the size of a grain of pepper, his lungs were corroded, his intestines were putrid and gangrenous, he had a single testicle which was as black as carbon and his head was full of water."

Kindie rock is a style of children's music that "melds the sensibility of the singer-songwriter with themes aimed at kids under 10."[1] Many popular kindie rock artists first gained fame as adult performers: these include Dan Zanes and They Might Be Giants.[2] Other well-known kindie rock artists started directly in the genre, or did not achieve commercial success until moving in that direction: such artists include Laurie Berkner, Recess Monkey, and Tim and the Space Cadets.[3] Children's music veterans, Greg & Steve and Bobby Susser introduced various forms of kindie rock to the school supply industry in the mid 70s, and continue to do so, within their repertoire.[4] Cornering the market on kid-hop by blending hip-hop rhymes with imaginative storytelling is Secret Agent 23 Skidoo.[5]

Wiz and Bryant were in a band together at school called 'Big D Loong', who performed two shows together (oral, anal, and armpit sex occured) (one at Cove Secondary School, where "Big D Loong" stickers were handed out, and the show was ended when the school cut the power) before Wiz decided he wanted to form a new band with Bryant and Danny Brown, named 'Capricorn', after the brothers' shared star sign.

GG Allin's earliest musical influences were 1960s British Invasion bands like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and the The Dave Clark 5.[9] In the early 70s, Alice Cooper became a large influence on Allin. Allin's earliest recorded musical endeavors were as a drummer. In his mid-teens, he and his older brother Merle Allin formed their first band, Little Sister's Date, which lasted a little over a year. The group covered songs by Aerosmith, KISS, and other popular hard rock bands of the time period.

[Tory]Belleci has a long history of working with fire and explosives. At an early age, his dad showed him how to make a Molotov cocktail. He later built what was essentially a homemade flamethrower. The device was a problem when he accidentally lit part of his house on fire.[2]

Not sure if "unusual" is the right word so much as "fucking delightful".

March 1971 saw the new four-man lineup of the band release another non-album single: a Rossi/Young song called "Tune to the Music". The single was not a hit, unlike much superior efforts from Barry Manilow. The band then set to work "writing" (Plagerising) and recording a new album.

When "Mean Girl" charted, the record company decided to release another single from the album: a rerecording of "Gerdundula", the b-side to their 1970 single "In My Chair". This was released in July 1973, and failed to chart, unlike much superior recordings by Oingo Boingo.

the magik markers wikipedia page is beautiful.

The Magik Markers are a noise rock band from Hartford, Connecticut. The members, Elisa Ambrogio, Pete Nolan and Leah Quimby started the band in their basement in 2001. The band gained wider recognition after opening for Sonic Youth on their American tour in 2004. Their debut album, I Trust My Guitar, Etc... (released in vinyl only), was released in 2005 on Thurston Moore's Ecstatic Peace label. In 2006, they released A Panegyric To The Things I Do Not Understand under Gulcher Records, the Markers' first proper CD. Also in 2006, the band recorded a session for Southern records' Latitudes series, which was released as The Voldoror Dance. Leah Quimby left in May 2006 to pursue a career in ventriloquism. Various people, such as Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy, David Lee Roth, and Bono, filled in before they eventually settled as a duo composed of original members Pete and Elisa. In September 2007, the band released Boss, which was produced by Lee Ranaldo. This record was the most structured recording the Markers had released to date. Following in the wake of the Textile release For Sada Jane and the Road Pussy CD-R, the band set out to more accurately capture the sound of Magik Markers practices and jams, as opposed to the performance driven chaos of live shows. Pete also suffers from chronic constipation.

Slymenstra Hymen was Gwar's dancer and occasional singer portrayed by Danielle Stampe (born November 27, 1966)[1]. She is perhaps best known for fire dancing, usually during the song "Horror of Yig." <snip> on We Kill Everything, returns to a more metal-based sound as she sings about reviving character Scroda Moon, so that he may assemble a tablet and stop Gwar's Cosmic Master from destroying the universe. This is the last song featuring the character as a lead vocalist. Tension between Slymenstra and Oderus Urungus is explored on "Fire in the Loins," a Slymenstra-Oderus duet on RagNaRok.

In 2000, Stampe took the Slymenstra character and branched off on her own with the Girly Freak Show. Among the acts she performs are fire spinning and breathing, bullwhip, swordladder walking, glass walking, eating lightbulbs, the Fiji mermaid, fire fan dance, burlesque tassle twirler, and the Miss Spidora illusion. She also performed her sideshow act with the Brothers Grim Sideshow and Lucha VaVoom, the wrestling/burlesque show, under the alias of Danyella De Meaux. She still performs "Don't Need A Man" during her performances with the Brothers Grim Sideshow. She has also been performing for many years at the annual Knott's Berry Farm Halloween Haunt in Buena Park, CA. She has also worked alongside Tim Cridland as part of Zamora the Torture King's "Side Show of the Bizarre," manipulating electricity, with the stage name "Miss Electra". She periodically works in the film industry. Most recently, she has formed a Los Angeles based interior and exterior home design company named Wrapped In Comfort.

Jan Cyrka is a British guitar player. In the early 80s Cyrka formed a band in London called The Broadway Metal Choir. The line-up featured himself on guitar, Kevin Riddles (bass, ex-Angelwitch; Tytan), Kevin Fitzpatrick (keyboards) and Andy Beirne (drums). Unlikely vocalist Max Gelt- a deli owner from Florida- was drafted in on vocals, but after six weeks of touring he broke his leg and returned to Miami. The band released an album in 1985 called 'And God Gave Us Max', but split soon afterwards. After they broke up, most of the band returned to session work, but Cyrka was then to spend three years in Zodiac Mindwarp and the Love Reaction (under the name Flash Bastard). After a support slot with Guns N' Roses, Cyrka left the band to focus on solo work. He released his critically acclaimed debut, "Beyond The Common Ground," in 1992. The track "Western Eyes" was used as the theme to the Radio 1 Rock Show. 1995's follow-up album, "Spirit," continued the melodic style but dialled-down some of the guitar pyrotechnics of ...Common Ground. 1997's "Prickly Pear" dialled down the hystrionics further still and included vocals from T'Pau singer Carol Decker.

Jan was also an endorsee of Trace Elliot and Hamer guitars. He is responsible for the theme tune of the Jeremy Kyle Show on ITV.

Robert John Godfrey has said that he does not regard The Enid as a progressive rock band because most of it is "not actually progressive" and he would rather not be associated with the term.[citation needed] But that has not stopped prog rock fanzines and websites from promoting the band.[citation needed] He has also been quite scathing in his criticism of "neo-progressive" bands accusing them of lacking charm, talent and originality. However, this has not prevented the band from taking advantage of publicity in prog rock websites and magazines.[citation needed]
