GOODSTUFFs Time Machine™ presents an exposé on Burlesque Queen Blaze Starr and Louisiana governor Earl Long. Plus, this enormous meta blog post contains all the science and vintage stuff a body needs! 

Sometime in the late 1950s the elderly Earl Long got involved with the buxom young Blaze Starr (aka Miss Spontaneous Combustion), and it was a scandal for the ages. Blaze Starr had a routine in which she wriggled around on a sofa so sensually that it began smoldering (thanks to a hidden smoke machine). The routine had been a hit everywhere she worked, and by the time she appeared at New Orleans’s Sho-Bar she had it down to a science. Governor Earl Long had wandered into the place with several friends and staffers, and when he saw the smoldering sofa routine he was smitten.

Blaze Starr "The Hottest Blaze in Burlesque"

All though they were both married at the time, the ‘devoutly’ Baptist Governor Earl Long made his way backstage and asked Blaze Starr out to dinner. She responded by asking if she could trust him. His response: “Hell no.” The two hit it off and, after a few false starts, embarked on an affair. Earl Long was deliriously happy, but others were not, and  Earl Long's wife, perhaps out of retaliation for his affair with Blaze Starr, committed her husband to Southeast Louisiana Hospital — a mental institution. Long couldn’t get out of the bin on his own, but due to a loophole in the law retained his powers as Governor. 

Blaze Starr's money makers

For a time Earl Long he ran Louisiana from his hospital room, and eventually devised an escape plan, which involved having the head of the state hospital system fired and replaced with someone who would pressure Uncle Earl Long’s doctors to declare him mentally competent.

 Upon release, Earl Long resumed his relationship with Blaze Starr and made plans to run for Congress in the fall. In August 1960 he won a Democratic primary, but just a month later died of a heart attack.

The relationship between Earl Long and Blaze Starr has been much dissected since then, and some revisionists have denied that it was at all meaningful to Earl Long. Perhaps not, but it meant something to Blaze Starr. Years later she said in an interview with People magazine: “I still dream about stripping sometimes. When I do, Earl is in the audience watching me do my thing. Then I wake up and feel sad. I miss Earl and I miss being on that stage.” 

Blaze Starr burnt the cheesecake!

Funky Accordion of Power


Since the accordion delivers such a powerful hypnotic spell towards the opposite sex, accordionists must be very careful when wielding this instrument. With great power comes great responsibility

Raves, keggers, and bachelor parties are fine, but nothing can compete with the wild orgy that is the accordion party. While these parties tend to result in either jail time or lost of innocence, they are still worthwhile for the unique experience they provide. (Except in Bangkok. Avoid accordion parties in Bangkok. Don’t ask why. Just don’t.) 

The accordion’s music is the language of love, which knows no geopolitical boundaries… well, except the Intergalactic Aliens. The Aliens’ hatred for the accordion burns with the fury of a million suns. I could go into the history behind it, but it is a painful story. So, out of respect for our Alien readers, I’ll refrain.

The real chick magnet is the accordion. Believe the hype!

The lure of substance abuse is no stranger to rock stars, but nothing compared to the world of accordionists. 

 If you are the sensitive type, Don't play this weirdness

Indeed, there is something primal, something bestial about the accordion.  As Danielle Colby Cushman (American Pickers chick) might of once said, “I am not a demon. I am a lizard, a shark, a heat-seeking panther...

 That just wants to be a Noted Accordion Player

Tempest Storm's storage devises are hosting this massive meta blog post by inserting navigating parallel dimensions software into 
GOODSTUFFs Time Machine 

Plus, tracking Donald Trump's biggest leak

Tempest Storm and udder Burlesque stuff 

Born Annie Blanche Banks in 1928, Tempest Storm figured in the Top10 of the effeuilleuses 

An effeuillage, A stripper that is not completely naked

Tempest Storm is known for having one of the longest burlesque dancing careers in history. She performed for over 50 years after making her fame through her fiery red hair and voluptuous figure. Tempest Storm also starred in several burlesque movies including Teaserama alongside Bettie Page.


During my week aboard S. S. Liberté, the flagship of the French Line, there were two things that were particularly memorable; having the meal of my dreams and catching occasional glimpses of one of our fellow passengers, a stripper named Tempest Storm.
Tempest Storm was a voluptuous redhead; you simply couldn’t miss her. Adding to her fame, she had recently been in the news when Lloyd’s of London insured her breasts—“moneymakers” as Tempest Storm called them—for a whopping one million dollars. And while there was much we did not know about her then—she would later claim to have been romantically involved with JFK, Elvis Presley, and the gangster “Mickey” Cohen.

Party of the century– Le Bal Oriental
 This is the faction that is now engaged in open warfare against the duly elected and already widely disliked president-elect, Donald Trump. They are using classic Cold War dirty tactics and the defining ingredients of what has until recently been denounced as "Fake News."

Their most valuable instrument is the U.S. media, much of which reflexively reveres, serves, believes, and sides with hidden intelligence officials. And Democrats, still reeling from their unexpected and traumatic election loss as well as a systemic collapse of their party, seemingly divorced further and further from reason with each passing day, are willing -- eager -- to embrace any claim, cheer any tactic, align with any villain, regardless of how unsupported, tawdry and damaging those behaviors might be.

How to think critically about news quotes from unnamed "government sources" under Trumpism

If information is the oxygen of democracy, the United States has just been gassed, not by weapons of mass destruction but by a weapon of mass distraction . . .

A retired British intelligence agent is a reliable source for Buzzfeed? CNN

The former British intelligence operative identified today by the Wall Street Journal as Christopher Steele, a former Russian operations officer for Britain’s MI6 intelligence agency. Christopher Steele had been hired originally to investigate Trump by his political opponents, and he decided to share his information with the FBI last year

Twitter’s response to #GoldenShowers report is absolutely HILARIOUS 

Steven Colbert Gives The Business To President Tinkles

According to 4Chan these documents were created by a 4Chan user and sent to anti-Trumper Rick Wilson knowing he would act on this tip

my opinion: It was a trap
BuzzFeed put itself at the heart of the story and made some of its most prominent journalists go-to people for any tips the dossier might generate. The most typical kind of investigative reporting entails spending months or even years gathering documents and cultivating sources to build an unshakable edifice. BuzzFeed took a different but still well-established approach: Release what you can when you have it and see what new leads it generates. If this strategy pays off, the outlet that has morphed from a cat-video factory to a font of serious journalism could end up with some terrific scoops. You can almost hear the rest of the media muttering, “Damn, why didn’t we think of that first?”


That Time The CIA And Howard Hughes Tried To Steal A Soviet Submarine

The story began in 1968 when a Soviet Golf II-class submarine carrying three SS-N-4 nuclear-armed ballistic missiles, sailed from the naval base at Petropavlovsk on Russia’s Kamchatka Peninsula to take up its peacetime patrol station in the Pacific Ocean northeast of Hawaii. Soon after leaving port, the submarine and its entire crew were lost. After the Soviets abandoned their extensive search efforts, the US located the submarine about 1,500 miles northwest of Hawaii on the ocean floor 16,500 feet below. Recognizing the immense value of the intelligence on Soviet strategic capabilities that would be gained if the submarine were recovered, the CIA agreed to lead such a recovery effort with support from the Department of Defense.

In 1970, after careful study, a team of CIA engineers and contractors determined that the only technically feasible approach was to use a large mechanical claw to grasp the hull and heavy-duty winches mounted on a surface ship to lift it.
The ship would be called the Glomar Explorer, a commercial deep-sea mining vessel ostensibly built and owned by billionaire Howard Hughes, who provided the plausible cover story that his ship was conducting marine research at extreme ocean depths and mining manganese nodules lying on the sea bottom. The ship would have the requisite stability and power to perform the task at hand.
Constructed over the next four years, the ship included a derrick similar to an oil-drilling rig, a pipe-transfer crane, two tall docking legs, a huge claw-like capture vehicle, a center docking well (called the “moon pool”) large enough to contain the hoisted sub, and doors to open and close the well’s floor. To preserve the mission’s secrecy, the capture vehicle was built under roof and loaded from underneath the ship from a submerged barge. With these special capabilities, the ship could conduct the entire recovery under water, away from the view of other ships, aircraft, or spy satellites.

The heavy-lift operation was complex and fraught with risk. While moving with the ocean currents, the ship had to lower the capture vehicle by adding 60-foot sections of supporting steel pipe, one at a time. When it reached the submarine, the capture vehicle then had to be positioned to straddle the sunken submarine, and its powerful jaws had to grab the hull. Then the ship had to raise the capture vehicle with the submarine in its clutches by reversing the lift process and removing supporting pipe sections one at a time until the submarine was securely stowed in the ship’s docking well.

Sailing from Long Beach, California, the Glomar Explorer arrived over the recovery site on July 4, 1974 and conducted salvage operations for more than a month under total secrecy—despite much of the time being monitored by nearby Soviet ships curious about its mission. During the operation, many small things went wrong but were quickly corrected. However, during the lift when the submarine was a third of the way up, it broke apart, and a section plunged back to the ocean bottom. Crestfallen, the Glomar Explorer crew successfully hauled up the portion that remained in the capture vehicle.

Among the contents of the recovered section were the bodies of six Soviet submariners. They were given a formal military burial at sea. In a gesture of good will, Director of Central Intelligence Robert Gates presented a film of the burial ceremony to Russian President Boris Yeltsin in 1992.
Almost immediately after the disappointing recovery effort, planning began for a second mission to recover the lost section. A bizarre and totally unforeseen occurrence, however, had already started a chain of events that would ultimately expose the Glomar Explorer’s true purpose and make another mission impossible. In June 1974, just before the Glomar Explorer set sail, thieves had broken into the offices of the Summa Corporation and stolen secret documents, one tying Howard Hughes to CIA and the Glomar Explorer. Desperate to recover this document, CIA called in the FBI, which in turn enlisted the Los Angeles Police Department. The search drew attention, and by the autumn of 1974 the media began to pick up rumors of a sensational story.
Director of Central Intelligence William E. Colby personally appealed to those who had learned about AZORIAN not to disclose the project. For a while they cooperated, but on February 18, 1975 the Los Angeles Times published an account that made connections between the robbery, Hughes, CIA, and the recovery operation. After that, investigative reporter Jack Anderson broke the story on national television, asserting that Navy experts had told him the sunken submarine contained no real secrets and that the project was a waste of taxpayers' money. Journalists flooded into the Long Beach area where the Glomar Explorer was preparing for its second mission. The Nixon Administration neither confirmed nor denied any of the stories in circulation, but by late June, the Soviets were aware of the Glomar Explorer's covert mission and had assigned a ship to monitor and guard the recovery site. With Glomar Explorer’s cover blown, the White House canceled further recovery operations.
