    neu·ro·sis ~ a relatively mild mental illness that is not caused by organic disease, involving symptoms of
    stress (depression, anxiety, obsessive behavior, hypochondria) but not a radical loss of touch with reality.

    * (in nontechnical use) excessive and irrational anxiety or obsession.


    And it most definitely loves company !

    Court Jesters: Gene Wilder and Bill Murray, Robin Williams

    From Blank on Blank


    Published on Jun 14, 2017

    Comedians are masters at making people laugh. But there's often more that lurks beneath the jokes. Legends like Gene Wilder, Bill Murray and Robin Williams can not only bring humor to the stage, they can tap a depth of emotions and inward thought that can make an audience stop and think.

    These lost tapes from the Blank on Blank were recorded between 1988 and 2007
    thanks to Lawrence Grobel, the 92Y, and T.J. English.

    She truly was ...

    "She was a rock & roll legend in herself, a style icon, a crucial part of the Stones' mystique" ...



    Why Anita Pallenberg, Rolling Stones Muse, Was Queen of the Underground

    By Rob Sheffield

    "Let's raise a toast to the late great Anita Pallenberg, queen of the underground, the Rolling Stones muse who gave the Glimmer Twins their glimmer lessons. Pallenberg, who died Tuesday night at the age of 73, wasn't merely Keith Richards' consort – she was a rock & roll legend in herself, a style icon, a crucial part of the Stones' mystique. She taught Keith her sinister glare, taught Mick Jagger her wiggle, taught Brian Jones how to wear floppy hats. Look at pictures of Keith before and after Anita – it's like the difference between Buddy Holly and Jack the Ripper. As soon Keith connected with Anita, he lost his gawky shyness and learned to strut like her, wearing her scarves and shirts and bangles. She was the flower of evil in the Stones' orbit, the baddest of bad girls – her grin declared she knew more about sin than any of these English schoolboys had ever imagined.

    Things tended to burst into flames around Anita. Her friend Marianne Faithfull used to call her "Glenda Hindenburg." "Loads of people were scared of me," Anita said in Victor Bockris' Keith Richards: The Biography. "I guess it was all that savoir-vivre that I had, and I was from Rome and I had traveled and been in New York and I knew all these people, and I was pretty reckless as well. You could see Keith and Mick exchanging looks like, ‘Who is this weird bird?'" That was putting it mildly. As Keith recalled, "She knew everything and she could say it in five languages. She scared the pants off me!"

    Pallenberg was a German-Italian actress who had hung out with the Andy Warhol scene in New York before she met the Stones. She appeared in films like Barbarella and Candy, but her most brilliant moment was in Performance, as the dangerous half of Mick Jagger's imagination. You can hear her in "Sympathy for the Devil" – she's one of the voices chanting "hoo hoo!" In the Godard film of the sessions, One Plus One, she radiates all her seductive magnetism even though she appears to be wearing a brown thrift-store carpet."

    Back in the day ...

    Woo Woo !

    Do note - I am obviously of late kinda suspect of Daniel the "Dark Journalist's" MO ...
    Though I will share this item here - Because I do respect the interviewee's views ...

    CATHERINE AUSTIN FITTS - BREAKAWAY TRUTH: A TALE OF TWO CIVILIZATIONS


    Published on Jun 18, 2017

    The Deep Interview
    In this exciting special episode, Dark Journalist Daniel Liszt welcomes back Former Assistant Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Catherine Austin Fitts. Catherine is the President of The Solari Report, a quarterly journal and website that integrates economic trends with a larger geopolitical picture.

    Ascent of the Black Budget Underworld
    Catherine sees the forces vying for power in the 21st century as a combination of Black Budget underworld with its covert influence in drug running, money laundering and high finance, and the robotic, transhumanist corporate culture that is attempting to create a new kind of digital slavery.

    In either case, the public civilization is only vaguely aware of the impact of these forces on their daily lives. In everyday living in modern society, an average person doesn't often get the opportunity to see the massive plan being brought to bear for the global dominance of a worldwide smartgrid capable of cataloging every person according to its harvesting algorithm.
