That figures, I suppose - mozzer@brickiewithaquiff does sound suspiciously like an oh-so-subtle dig at Morrissey. Anyway, I'm stumped - please do let us know if you manage to track the photo down though; I'd like to see it.

This made me curious, so I had a look around their site. Spiggy's sneering disdain has always been part of his exquisite charm, but the website does say those who really insist on emailing questions should send them to one 'Mozzer' at mozzer@brickiewithaquiff.co.uk - have you tried this?

Heh. That photo must represent Spiggy Eldritch's proudest moment. Have you tried contacting the Sisters through their official site? You never know, might be worth a shot.

Tri-me - Shambhala is Chogyam Trungpa's gang, right? I've done some silent retreats too, vipassana-style - including a couple of quite long and rigorous ones - but I hear the regime on Mount Baldy is something entirely different. For example, I read one interview (on this site somewhere) where an in...

No, but he's been meditating in a different Buddhist tradition for years. He's written to the people on Mount Baldy and they've agreed that he can come. He's just a little, erm, trepidatious.

Retreats on Mount Baldy

A friend of mine's considering going to Mount Baldy to train with the spiritual marines for a few weeks. Any of you folks ever spent any time on retreat up there? If so, just exactly how tough was the experience?

“I have nothing against the Queen of England. Even in my heart I never resented her for not being Jackie Kennedy. She is, to my mind, a very gallant lady, victimized by whoever it is who designs the tops of her uniforms.”

What's the book? Johnny Seven Moons crops up in Jim Dodge's fine novels 'Stone Junction' and 'Fup'. He's a kind of wandering spiritual teacher and anarchist saboteur, much like myself. Are you really the devil? All I can say is that persons who have three buttocks ought to be very careful around per...

I didn't know Finland had had success at ice hockey - but then, I'm not a sports fan, all I know is that our (British) media was full of stories for a couple of days about how the Finns had never won anything and it was a source of great national shame... until LORDI came along and smashed all Europ...

"You came to me this morning and you handled me like meat / you'd have to be a man to know how good that feels, how sweet" - that's got to be one of Lenny's best gags ever. "Now, why "7 moons?" Are you a cousin of the Monty Python man with three buttocks? " It comes from a book, actually, Eliza :twi...

Neil Young is an overrated Dylan impersonator who has only written one decent song ('Helpless') and does NOT belong on this list at all... discuss.

Lizzie - what did Joni M say about Leonard? I've just read through the whole 'Joni Mitchell' thread and couldn't find the reference.

All hail Lordi!

This is the first time Finland's ever won anything at all in Europe, right? I think there's a lesson to be learned. The Finnish national soccer team should dress up in latex fright-masks - World Cup glory beckons.
