Australia needs to get Kinky


I've just joined this community (thanks for having me), a displaced American living in the VERY deep South for the past 15 years. 

It seems a long time now since Kinky visited our fair shores, and we are poorer for his absence.

In the years I've been here I have shared my Kinky books with many friends and find that he has a very loyal fan base down here. I sure wish he'd come for a visit. 

I'll put the coffee on and throw down the shrunken head as soon as I know he's on the way.

The Christmas Pig
Hello, I just joined the community.

I'm sorry to say I never heard of Kinky Friedman until last week when I saw a book called "The Christmas Pig," by Kinky Friedman, in the library.

The cover was so cute, I decided to take out the book.

WOW, it was the best book I ever read!

Up until last night when I finished the book, my favorite book was "Letters from the Earth" by Mark Twain.

Well let me say that Kinky Friedman pushed Mark Twain out of first place -- and Twain has been first place in my heart for over 10 years now!!

My boyfriend enjoyed the book too. I read him the good parts before we fell asleep at night.

Unfortunately the book has to be returned to the library, BUT I just ordered my own autographed copy from Kinky's site.

I can't wait to own the book and I'm honored that it will be a part of my own personal library :)

Videos on YouTube
I found a couple of videos with Kinky on YouTube.

Kinky on 60 Minutes


Kinky reading from one of his books on Swedish TV

I'm hoping to copy the episodes of Go Kinky! onto my computer in the next couple of weeks, and I'll let ya'll know when I upload it.

By the way, have you heard Willie Nelson's new single, "Cowboys Are Frequently Secretly(Fond of Each Other)? It's available exclusively on iTunes, and it's really good.

I suppose this is an odd question, but does anyone remember the joke Kinky told at the fundraising dinner on CMT's Go Kinky? All I remember is the punchline. :[

Go Kinky on CMT
My husband pointed out a blurb in the February 13-19, 2006 TV Guide. I scanned it for ya'll to enjoy. I thought it might be too large an image for a post, so you can find it in my Photobucket album:

I haven't checked to see if these are two new episodes or the ones that aired a few weeks ago.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY :: Get Kinky on the Ballot!
Dear Loyal Fan of the Kinkster:

We've been absolutely amazed and gratified by the overwhelming number of volunteers who have indicated a willingness to help collect signatures to get Kinky on the ballot. Now it's time for the shoe leather to hit the pavement. The Kinky Ballot Brigade is about to march and we need your help. Can you dedicate at least one weekend day to help Kinky get on the ballot? Are you a notary public that is willing to notarize petition affidavits? If the answer is yes to either question, PLEASE SIGN UP.

We are planning six one-day, all-day signature collection events during the first three weekends of the petition drive, March 11, 12, 18, 19, 25 and 26 in Dallas, Ft. Worth, Houston (2 days), San Antonio and Austin. These will involve training, a visit from Kinky, about four hours of door-to-door signature collection and notarization of the required affidavits. Plus, every participant will be invited to a party with Kinky at the end of each weekend. We call it the Big Road Show. Sound like fun? SIGN UP NOW.

We also need notaries public who are willing to offer their services at these events and throughout the course of the petition drive in their counties. If you are a notary, please offer to help by filling out the form. If you can also help collect signatures at one of the Big Road Show events, so much the better. PLEASE SIGN UP.

Kinky &Jay Leno
The Kinkster's slated to be a guest on this Thursday's The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. In the descriptive mini-blurb they have him credited only as "author", though. Possibly for the sake of brevity.

For all you Houstonians...
From here.

Kinky Party!

THU 9/15
His campaign slogan is "Why the Hell Not?" and he's promising to appoint Willie Nelson as state secretary of energy (and perhaps herbal healing?). So it's little wonder that author-musician-cigar aficionado Kinky Friedman is starting to get some serious buzz on his Texas gubernatorial bid. Meet the candidate, hear music from Asleep at the Wheel and the John Evans Band, enjoy a barbecue dinner and shout out a request for Friedman's feminist anthem "Get Your Biscuits in the Oven and Your Buns in the Bed" at this unorthodox political fund-raiser. 6 p.m. Thursday, September 15. Sons of Hermann Lodge, 102 Yale. For information, call 281-847-8908 or visit www.htexas.com. $15 in advance; $20 at the door. -- Bob Ruggiero

Kinky hits the Jackpot...
The Kinkster gets lucky in the Big Easy
Associated Press

AUSTIN — Kinky Friedman, the independent candidate for Texas governor, thinks he may be on a winning streak.

The musician, author and humorist says he won $45,612 over the weekend playing a slot machine at Harrah's in New Orleans. On Wednesday, he showed news reporters a Harrah's photograph of himself at the winning machine.

"It's a sign," said Friedman, who is hoping that his luck spills over into his budding political career.

Friedman, who announced this year that he will run for governor in 2006, will have up to two months next spring to collect 45,000 signatures from registered voters to make it on the ballot as an independent.

Gov. Rick Perry and Comptroller Carole Keeton Strayhorn are running on the Republican side, and former U.S. Rep. Chris Bell and Felix Alvarado are running for the Democratic nomination.

Friedman hasn't decided what to do with his casino winnings.

He said through his spokeswoman that he may give it to his campaign fund or donate it to a charity or to the "leprosy colony for unwed mothers in Hawaii." Calls to a Harrah's spokeswoman were not immediately returned.

Note: What the article doesn't mention is the fact that the amount of dollars Kinky won is just 73 off from the number of signatures he needs to get on the ballot.
