I am not a memorabilia collector by any means but I would totally bid the hell out of a number of the lots at the Waylon Jennings auction, in particular this bigass portrait of Waylon and Jessi.
Tumblr has suggested I follow Personhood USA and someone who appears to have Alex Jones/Prison Planet aspirations.
I have nothing to add to that. I’ve just been holed up in my house for three days and I have no one else to complain to.
"I am absolutely *not* ashamed to say that 17 year old me had his senior photo taken in an exact replica of the cover to ‘Tender Prey.’ Black jacket, red shirt, hand through my all-one-length dyed-black hair. Not a single person in my graduating class noticed (or cared, it was a small Oregon cowtown, May of ‘90) but I looooove hauling it out and looking at young has literate-ambitions-me."

This is the greatest thing I have seen all day.
For a short while I too modeled my wardrobe on Tender-Prey-era Nick Cave (which is still my favorite Nick Cave). I even had the slick red button-down shirt. The awkward part was being a short, chubby girl.
Authorities: Savannah officer kills handcuffed man who had a gun -
So let me get this straight: Somehow the cops arrest someone, neglect to frisk him, and then he performs amazing acrobatic feats in the back of the patrol car, before engaging in a gunfight with said cops, who kill him in self defense.
Texas Wants to Execute Man Who Killed Home Intruder Who Turned Out to Be SWAT Member -
Attempting to serve a search warrant by entering a house through a window got Killeen, Texas, Police Detective Charles Dinwiddie shot in the face and killed last May. It was yet another SWAT raid organized for a purpose other than the reason they were invented. The police had a search warrant looking for narcotics at the home of Marvin Louis Guy, 49. They decided to serve this warrant at 5:30 in the morning and without knocking on his door. He opened fire on them, killing Dinwiddie and injuring three others.
Who wants to guess whether Guy — who is now in prison for the shooting only, since there were no drugs found during the raid — is black or white?
If you’re interested in contrast, here’s the last post I wrote about someone shooting an “intruder” … where no charges have been filed.
Burn it all down. To the ground.
