Ruggedy Annes - Casual Design and Other Songs -- 1985

Sometime 1986



Ruggedy Annes -- Casual Design

Ruggedy Annes - Hollow Heroes

Ruggedy Annes -- Dead & Gone 


It Came From The Pit - Starts with Ruggedy Annes


Debbie Wall -- Grandma Lama -- Cherry Bomb -- 2015




"The Ruggedy Annes were a band I was first exposed to from the "It Came from the Pit" Canadian compilation. They are from Manitoba, Canada. I ordered their EP in 1986 and it came with a fine letter from drummer, Debbie Wall. She said, 'Thank you for the order and the tidy profit as the exchange rate from US dollars and Canadian Dollars was about $.85 Canadian to $1.00 US.'

I took it to the local teen club Checkers in Hampton and asked the DJ to play it. He played it and it led me to meeting Jeff Gay and Mike Dunkin who ended up later  starting the band the K-9s and later Screaming Silence. Thanks Ruggedy Annes!"

We still go through this debate about what women can do. We hear that women can't work with other women. A whole line a bullshit. Listen to what these ladies produced. We didn't care who made the music. We just wanted to get our mosh pit on and they helped us do it." --Alex Nuttall

The Setup For Video The Interview


Interview - The Nerve Scheme - 26 Aug. 2017
Interview - The Nerve Scheme - 26 Aug. 2017

We sat down to do a video interview with The Nerve Scheme at Baja Cantina Mai Bar, Virginia Beach, Virginia. The club was a little tiny spot just on 23rd Street sandwiched between Atlantic and Pacific Boulevards.  It was the East Coast Surfing Championship weekend. We had to pay $20 and we parked on 15th street. It was madness. But it was worth it.

We asked some of the staff there if we could use a spot to do the interview. They were all friendly and very cool about it. We were able to get a room underneath the top deck and adjacent to where the live show would be. It was a dark spot. The lighting was terrible. Fortunately Samsung made a very good camera phone. This is not her story.

Jimmy Walker - We love you!




We have not met many celebrities but we met Mr. Jimmy Walker in person here in Portsmouth, VA. Here he is on the Arsenio Hall Show 2014.

If you get a chance to meet him face to face you will find a powerful and gentle respectful soul. He is a fantastic human being and he deserves recognition.

Nocturnal

20 AUG 2017




Daylight seems so distant
Darkness settles quiet and alone
Embracing the night
A comfort that feels like home

Stillness engulfs the soul
Wrapping the cloak of comfort tight
Silence stills the mind
Stalling the spin of thoughts we fight

Breathing in the solitude
Exhaling the chaos of the day
Recharging the mind and soul
Until dreams take the world away

Tubing in Scottsville VA with Clyde

19 Aug 2017





We recently went on a tubing trip with a group of friends. It was in Scottsville, Virginia through a company called James River Runners. They had a pretty sweet setup. A parent of one of our group of friends decided to go with us. He had some reservation as to if whether he could make it through. 

The younger generation was excited about him going and encouraged him to join us on our adventure. We had a great weekend of bonding and getting back to Nature. Clyde at age 75 learned how to play beer pong with us. He was a trooper. He hung in with us all the way down the river. 

 But this is not really the story that I am here to tell.

This is a story about generational perspective. We were all more than willing to take care of Clyde. After all, he had taken care of us for so many years.  He had treated us as if we were all his very own children. With all that is going on in the world today Clyde had become increasingly pessimistic about the younger generation and what our world is in for. 

The following is a quote from Clyde after his experience with us on the trip:
"All in all the experience gave me a good look at the past generations of children we've raised. I have to say that we did a good job on this bunch. They watched me like a hawk. If the old man went under there were at least three or four of you all pulling me back up. I was impressed. Actually our old parties were rowdier. Good bunch of kids"
It's people like Clyde that know that it takes a village to raise a child. He knows that he has nurtured a generation that cares about and respects the hard work that our "families" did making the world a better place.

Happy Birthday to H.P Lovecraft

20. Aug. 2017
By Tom DeansBio



Happy Birthday to H.P Lovecraft, born on this day in 1890. He lost his father at any early age and was raised by his mother, 2 aunts and his grandfather, all under the same roof. He lived in poverty and would not promote his work. He obtained an inheritance but quickly ran through it.

Howard Philip Lovecraft never achieved fame for his writing until after his death at 46. He is now widely considered a master of science fiction and horror. "I never ask a man what his business is, for it never interests me. What I ask him about are his thoughts and dreams. "

So HB to H.P!!!


H. P. Lovecraft, June 1934

Pronobozo - Coming Back




We can't say enough about this artist. We can say that a video we are coming up with will have his music. Pronobozo can be found at http://www.pronobozo.com/ and even on the soundtrack of the game LinCity-NG https://sourceforge.net/projects/lincity-ng.berlios/ So what does that mean? Well it is another example of Constructive Technology Aggregate. The real movement is all around us. We just don't see it. We see instead the crude scribbles of loveless children. Instead there are those who move forward and create the new dimension right now.

Here it is:

Home is where the Edge is (Straight Edge)

Greed: 

"Can't you see there is a sickness in the society in which we live in? Opportunity is a slap in the face suppressed before they even begin. The reason why, Greed. It stimulates crime and poverty, it divides us by race, religion and wealth and holds us back from living free.

It's a disgusting dream and I'm not buying in. Philosophy developed by the inhumane, society's greatest sin. Equality and life are pushed aside for personal success. Greed.

Freedom is a joke in the sickest state when you live in poverty. See the situation, one of suppression advocating hate. Generation after generation are locked into a cycle of which they can't escape. A system designed to keep us down through poor education and overwhelming odds.

From the day we were born we'll be praised and scorned. Money tells us what we can achieve. Can't you see and understand the situation's out of hand? It's always worse than before. It's time to hit this at its core. You can't turn around and walk away, but it will eat you one day.
The suppressed will rise, stand and fight, unless you look and see the light, what's right!"

What It Means to be a Heritage Monitoring Scout

16. Aug 2017



When I was a small child I always liked to play in the dirt in my parents back yard. I had often pretended to be a scientist that was looking for some sort of artifact. Whether it be a chest of gold or a shoe it didn't matter. In my case an old soda bottle left me with great excitement.

What It Means to be a Heritage Monitoring Scout - Florida
What It Means to be a Heritage Monitoring Scout - Florida

It wasn't until after moving to Florida that I realized the history of Florida contained a greater variety than anything I grew up with in Virginia. Florida contains many Native American mounds. These mounds are ancient in fact. We also have Pirate, Spanish and Cuban influences. My running thought was, "How am I able to experience all this?"

One day I came across FPAN, which is the Florida Public Archaeological Network. At FPAN I was able to sign up to be a lab volunteer. As a lab volunteer I began my new journey int the past.

What It Means to be a Heritage Monitoring Scout - midden mound remains
What It Means to be a Heritage Monitoring Scout - midden mound remains
I began with an amazing experience. I got to sit with a 1,000 year old midden mound. The mound contained garbage that Native Americans left behind. These mounds are huge. There are so many items to be found. You can sort through oyster, clam, and mussel shells. You will find small animal bones (mostly vertebrae). Finally there is the broken pottery.

As a lab volunteer I helped archaeologists tag and record the information from these mounds involving diet and day to day life of Native Americans. Here I was an adult playing in the backyard again. Of course my play contributed to our knowledge of human beings.

As a lab volunteer I uncovered for myself an opportunity where I could become a Heritage Monitoring Scout (HMS). I would be able to go out with real archaeologists and help them monitor sites. We would record things like vandalism, erosion, etc. I had to apply for this and thankfully I was accepted.

My husband and I have had the pleasure of going out with these folks to check some pretty interesting locations. Due to the sensitive nature of the type of locations we encounter and with respect, I am unable to specify where they are. I have, instead, enclosed a few snaps for your liking. These will give you an idea of what we were monitoring.

It has been a dream come true for me to be a Heritage Monitoring Scout. I am looking forward to more interaction and discovery. What a Wonderful privileged it is to see the past, today.

Man on a Lead - Barcelona

17. Aug. 2017




Having led; He no longer wants the lead
Best of friends, companions for the duration
He no longer labors at the corporation

Strolling along the shoreline
Devoid of pressure, released from obligation
Wanting nothing further than the sunset, shore and contemplation

The Pearl - Tomorrow's Qatar, today!

15 August 2017


The Pearl... Tomorrow's Qatar, today!


The Pearl... Tomorrow's Qatar, today

The Pearl... Tomorrow's Qatar, today! Once you drive over the bridge to The Pearl from downtown Doha, you are transported to the future. The Pearl is a man-made island that juts out into the Persian Gulf, much like The Palm in Dubai. 

Qatar is slated to host the World Cup in 2022, and is undergoing a facelift country-wide. The Pearl, much like Downtown Doha, is a shining example of the forward thinking and social progressiveness Qatar is known for today. If you want to understand what Qatar might look like when the World Cup rolls into town, look no further than The Pearl. 

The Pearl is a veritable playground for the internationally wealthy and the common man alike. I myself, enjoyed fine Cuban cigars after days full of luxury shopping, sightseeing, and decadent meals. If you are an admirer of fine automobiles, brace yourself; for you will encounter everything from the newest model Rolls-Royce, to a barely street-legal McLaren! The Pearl is undoubtedly Qatar's nod to the future of the country, dripping with opulence and shining with the warmth of it's people's smiles.

Smash Racist Scum - Flyer





The Only Race Is The Human Race



Smash Racist Scum, The Only Race is the Human Race!

The true Skinhead Spirit has been threatened by bald racist boneheads claiming to be skinheads, but the true fact is they are not. True Skinheads believe in racial unity and proved so in the 1960's by uniting with West Indian Blacks who's Jamaican Style music called SKA brought the two together. Today the "True Spirit" is alive and Skinheads who's pride for original roots will smash racism!
--Origin Unknown -- Early Nineties or Late Eighties


Origin Unknown -- Early Nineties or Late Eighties Flyer

I thought this would be appropriate to post since the things happening in Charlottesville, Virginia the past day or two.

I got this mailed to me long time ago ,early Nineties,  late Eighties, possibly from New mexico. I'm not sure.

Going Somewhere is Human

13. Aug 2017



Going somewhere is human
Even if you are going nowhere
Going somewhere is human,
Even if the scope of the Universe
Is going nowhere in particular
Going somewhere is human,

Going somewhere is ideal
Even when going somewhere
Is meaningless in the grand scheme
Going somewhere is about
Having a goal, any goal
And going there is good like health-food,

Going somewhere is like
Having some ice-cream
It begins to feel good during
The process of eating it
And eating it becomes
A human and unique experience,

Going somewhere is human
As much as going somewhere
Is going through life anyway
But having a course and a plan
Is not so bad, Man,
It’s not so bad, Man;

Going about anyway like hurling
Universe she is going about
Anyway,
 She is is the Hurling Universe,
At any second it could all end
No matter, we  are traveling;

Going somewhere is like
Pulling the wool over your own eyes
And the emptiness after all
Is not so bad and the
Indifferent, ambivalent is just,
It is just… justice.

Going Somewhere is Human
Going Somewhere is Human



Poetry by Alex Nuttall, title: Going Somewhere is Human, Original Date: 20170813 – © Alex Nuttall / OgFOMK ArTS 2017 – 2017 – Retro-published 20170813.

We might be headed for the great end as nihilists. We might be headed for heaven. We might be headed for all. All at the speed of living someone else ideas. We become human by heading somewhere with a goal in mind. We reluctantly start to feel happiness. We no longer question the happiness. It is ours. Happiness is a hand we have always had. Going somewhere is human, Man.

The Nerve Scheme

As part of our commitment to the Norfolk Scene we are starting with The Nerve Scheme.  We are looking forward to interviewing them soon. In the mean time please enjoy their video on YouTube:

Formed in 2007 in a fit of rage. We drive around the United States and play music, we even take airplanes every now and then. We have a record and some CD's out on Jailhouse Records, and we're on lots of comps. Dave from Jailhouse Records vomited on our equipment once. Bobby ran over a gas pump in Birmingham Alabama on one tour. Greg is the sex symbol in the band, and he is related to Pee Wee Herman. One time we saw Paul Simon at a White Castle somewhere in Ohio. Hector likes to drink energy drinks before bed so he can "dream fast". We've played and toured with lots of good bands, and some terrible ones too. Lesbians really like our music. We're gonna put out music until it's not fun anymore, and right now, we're having a blast. Get stoked.
