Simply heartbroken by the #jesuischarlie cartoonist news. Me too ... in honor of satiric artists everywhere, free thought & speech, and the eternal (French, s'il vous plaît ) spirit of résistance ... posting The Confessions of Robert Crumb (1987) ...
More at Paris Review with American cartoonist Robert Crumb, last seen about the south of France (shhhh!) ..
Below, another Cheap Suit Serenaders chanson, Crying My Blues Away:
Oh, here is the cover, if you're still searching ... (pricey though) along with more no one is showing you ...
For sale in Chicago, though.

1.21.2015 crossposted Editor's Note. The satiric comment about
pricey Ebay Charlie Hebdo copy was made with the writer's off-the-cuff
(and possible misunderstanding) that an unknown individual was selling
theirs (in the Charlie Hebdo magazine-deprived U.S.A.) for something
like 30,000 dollars
.. and the way others, say, have Ebay or amazon-posted their favorite
10.00 dollar novel or CD for similar profits with a "Hey, ya never
know," "might as well."
has since come to our attention that the magazine is donating
proceeds to the families of the victims and that may be a genuine
fundraising attempt. We, of course, fully support such fundraising on
behalf of the families of the victims; however, we do not research
these channels one way or the other. Therefore, if you wish to donate
funds for the Charlie Hebdo families of the victims, we recommend
contacting the newspaper directly for further information as to where
and how you can do that over the internet.
