This is so weird. I mean, really.

"Big news!! I will be performing on July 8 at the Market Hotel in Brooklyn, NY," he wrote in the tweet, which also noted that "special guests" would make appearances.


Please let it be Squeaky Fromme for a duet of "Unworthy of Your Love"...

He's a perfect example of why we need to teach marksmenship in schools.

Jeb Bush had a dinner-date with Hinckley's brother

(John's dad was an oil-baron in Colo just like GHW Bush, and a big donor)

The Fed's knew he'd been busted with a gun in Nashville, (wanting to shoot a pol) but let him go.

Billy Liar: I don't suppose he can get MDC (Mark David Chapman) on a double bill with Jodie Foster's Army


Jodie Fosters Army was the FIRST band I saw live in NYC when I moved here in 1986- at The Pyramid Club

CSB time.  He lives about 45 minutes away from me in Virginia.  Last fall I was trying to pull some people together to get a band started.  I see a Craigslist post looking for musicians to help someone record some original music with links to some stuff on YouTube.  Click one of the links and it's farking Hinckley playing solo acoustic in what I assumed was his mom's living room.

I came really close to replying, but my girlfriend talked me out of it and his post was deleted within hours.  Guessing he was either swamped with replies when people found out about it or the Secret Service noped the hell out of the idea.  Probably both.

Maybe he's looking to land a No. 1 song with a bullet on the record charts.

He was prohibited from performing under his name until 2021, so if this was last year, then I doubt the Secret Service cared.

I don't know about that. He caused the death of one person (albeit 25 years after the incident) and came damn close to getting his target.

George H.W. Bush was at a meeting with bin Laden's brother on 9/11.  The Feds knew this too, but let him go.

Jeb Bush also met with and endorsed the Zodiac killer.

He's had a YouTube channel with his covers and originals for a good long while now. He's not half bad. He's a success story for how someone can be rehabilitated from an acute mental health episode and reintegrate into society.

He's not a bad songwriter, I think some of his songs in the hands of a good producer and artist could be really good country/folk/Americana.

Why not, he's dedicating the entire performance to her.

I need a list of all attendees to add to my list of people I never want to communicate with. If he wants to do a show and is legally able to? Fine. But you want to see it? Fark off, you ghoulish lamprey on the ass of pop culture. Maybe stick with your Charles Manson cover band.


/I hope anyone who goes can get back to sucking the puss out of celebrity wounds as soon as possible.

That'd be great if it was 1989.
