If you're alone and you got the Fear ....
Human joke Harold Ford was at that “rock & roll hall of fame” award dinner in wherever it is, Cleveland? And Iggy Pop just cold ran over there and started goin’ nuts, as proven by the picture of a television set somebody posted at the Balloon Juice web blog. Each day is better and better, for America.

  1. Is Ford trying to become a Senator from Ohio now? And is Mr. Pop’s inability to gain body fat due to genetics or long term heroin use?

  2. This is exactly why I can’t stand the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame (TM). Look at this audience. Who the hell are these people? They are the people who spend their entire lives being invited to award shows. They wear ties and evening gowns and fuss over persnickity shit. This is not at all rock and roll.

  3. [re=532263]magic titty[/re]: Dang, that’s Harold’s wifey? I was just assuming he finally called that chick from “call me” teevee ad.

  4. james osterberg to harold ford:

    Raw power honey just won’t quit
    Raw power I can feel it
    Raw power honey can’t be beat
    Get down and kiss my feet

    (and yes, I have Raw Power in green vinyl)

  5. [re=532262]Gorillionaire[/re]: [re=532256]ForTheTurnstiles[/re]: Believe the event was actually in NYC because, c’mon, you think all these important celebs are gonna go to Cleveland, fer chrissakes?

    The museum itself does kinda suck, if you actually like music. Looking at Jimi Hendrix’ costumes or Janis Joplin’s stole is like going to the art museum to look at Picasso’s easels and canvas-stretching tools. Who cares? Architecturally it looks like I M Pei just yelled down to his direct labor trolls and said, “Give ’em a Number 53 off the shelf, and ask ’em when the first check will get here.”

  6. In Harold’s mind, Iggy looks uncomfortably like the nice lady who winked & whispered “Howard, call me!” in that video ad thingee that made him have to not be Duke of Tenessee or sumpin’

  7. [re=532262]Gorillionaire[/re]: With any luck, right after this photo was taken Iggy slapped them all silly with his ancient Lithuanian cock.

  8. Harold should have learned by now that if he keeps showing in pix with topless, white women, he’ll never get elected to anything.

  9. Well somebody’s trophy wife looks quite entranced with Mr. Iggy! I can’t believe he’s 63. Note to Iggy: watch out for the old white guy there, probably an (R)!

  10. [re=532262]Gorillionaire[/re]: [re=532287]Sweet Baby Cheeses[/re]: “Who the fuck are these people?”

    Are you fucking serious?!

    At the pimp stick-grippin’ A-Rod Jeter’s table alone I recognize Bob Barker, Howard Stern, Judy Tenuta (or maybe Rosanne…hard to tell), Michael Chiklis, Maureen Dowd, and Elaine Benes. Plus, I’m pretty sure that shiny “blonde” chick (the one sitting down) was on a free postcard an illegal gave me in Vegas.

    If that awesome entourage isn’t rock n’ roll enough for you, I doubt that any would be.

  11. [re=532266]Mull_Man[/re]: Wow. Never seen Raw Power on green vinyl (and I’ve bought just about every version released since if first came out); sure you aren’t thinking of Kill City?

  12. Does he own a shirt? Seriously, I don’t think I have ever seen Iggy with a clothed torso. I think he is just impervious to temperature, climate, etc. He is like an old baseball glove now, weathered and tough.

  13. I saw Iggy some time ago at Toad’s Place in New Haven.
    A. It was one of the loudest shows I’ve ever been to and probably responsible for my tinnitus
    B. Iggy spent a good deal of the show insulting Yale and any Yalies present.

    Even longer ago than that, I saw Iggy at Bizarre Fest in Germany (at the time, West Germany)
    Some knucklehead tried to climb over the fence that separated the stage from the crowd. It was a, what do you kids call it these days, Epic Fail?
    The guy got over, but got caught some how and ended up taking a head first dive on the Iggy side of the stage. I could hear the dude screaming and as paramedics rushed to his aid, Iggy stood over him and poured water and spat on him.

  14. Oh yeah, Lust for Life as a Carnival Cruise ad?
    That’s way up on my list for highly inappropriate and unintentionally hilarious songs used in ads.

  15. [re=532262]Gorillionaire[/re]: Exactly. Ties and Rock only go together if you’re Buddy Holly; and you can’t be, because he’s dead. The Beatles knew to dump that shit once their music got better.

    Look, celebrities, would you show up to a funeral in ripped jeans and an open leather vest over a bear chest? No? Then don’t show up to rock dressed for a funeral.

    I cringe to think what Harold Ford’s “Cool Duds For A Rock-And-Roll Venue” might look like, though. Plus he’s so dreeeammy in a suit…

  17. Imagine this same crowd’s response (mostly confused silence) when Patti Smith sang “Rock and Roll Nigger” a few years back.

  18. might as well point out again, Iggy’s real name was “James Newell Osterberg”.

    and that The Stooges first album was one of the greatest rock albums, evah!

  19. [re=532283]ph7[/re]: That’s no mere “date.” That’s the stepdaughter of Anson Beard, former Chairman of Morgan Stanley, currently known as Mrs. Emily Threlkeld Ford, Harold’s version of telling the Tennessee lynch mob to suck his dick. And they call it “loooove.”

    BTW, Iggy was scornfully referring to these “guests” as “you rich people” and trying to get them to go up on the stage to “sing” with him.

    [re=532328]Escape Goat Nation[/re]: Sorry about the tinnitus, but at least you got a good show and a good story out of it. I refer to my old deaf ears as Duane and Stevie Ray.

  20. I’m not sure what this says about me or Harold Ford, but every time I see that dude’s picture, I get an overwhelming urge to punch him in the face. And then bang his wife.

    I kinda think in this case that it might be less a manifestation of my inherently evil nature than the last gasp of my conscience urging me to strike back against a world where someone so douchey can have such an easy life.

    Oh yeah, make a funny for the (satire) blog….um…poop, also?

  21. [re=532371]dj widestance[/re]: The icing on that cake was that the very next person to follow Patti onstage after that song was the Reverend Al Sharpton.

    He was speechless and the look on his face was utterly priceless.

  22. Can this please be the very last sighting of Harold Ford for the rest of eternity? No one cares about this moron. He’s an idiot–and a poseur.

    And, yes, Iggy Pop needs to start keeping his shirt on. Iggy: That doesn’t work anymore. Just put a shirt on–and keep it on.

    And why were about 300 of those idiots at the Rock and Roll dinner in the first place? That crowd should be, well, rock and roll–and not boring poseurs in suits. Al Sharphead has absolutely no place at the Rock and Roll dinner–none. He has zero to do with rock and roll-nothing.

    It’s rock and roll, people. If you’re celebrating rock and roll–BE rock and roll.

  23. Thank god for iggy pop. i was listening to a live album from a ’77 concert in cleveland yesterday. weirdly there’s multiple iggy live albums from cleveland in ’77.

    i’m so glad there’s still someone he can shock.
