“she wants to bang all of them”

Published by under 9 Muses,Blink-182,Uncategorized

Patti Smith giving you Virgina Woolf

Published by under 9 Muses,Blink-182

I saw one of Uranium Madhouse’s 9 Muses, Blink-182, for New Year’s Eve 1999/2000 in San Diego. A concert by the (at that time) biggest punk band in the world seemed like a great way to ring in the new millenium. And it was a great time. Five years later, Blink-182 had broken up. It […]

Thomas Bernhard tells you how he really feels

One of Uranium Madhouse’s 9 Muses is Thomas Bernhard, the Austrian novelist and playwright about whom I wrote my dissertation at Stanford. There is a quote on that page from Bernhard’s novel Gargoyles. If that quote made you curious, this blog is all Bernhard all the time. All the entries are quotes from Bernhard. Here’s […]
