Art of Robert Crumb

Robert Crumb (born 1943) is a satirical cartoonist, misogynist, misanthrope. Weirdo. Nerd ne plus ultra. A superb cartoonist, who knows emotion and expression, and know how to mock them. Dig the human thingy.

i listen to old music, one of the few times i actually have kinda a love for humanity.

you hear the best part of a soul of common people, their way to express their connections to eternity -- whatever you want to call it. Modern music doesn't have that, calamitous loss. People can't express themselves that way anymore.

O, what a song, what drawings, what humanity!

Robert Crumb  remember everybody needs love
and remember, everybody needs love.

For lyrics and performance by others, see: The Last Kind Word Blues (Geeshie Wiley).
