Notes: Interesting show. Maynard, dressed as the Geisha, is carried out on the shoulders of 'Killer', a huge muscle man dressed in bondage gear. Sings Hooker With A Penis on the shoulders of a giant. Fucking weird to see but simultaneously thought-provoking. Audio is really good as well, nice levels. Possibly the best audio source for being from a video from this era? Maybe. Slight tape hiss/layer of fuzz is only noticeable if you listen for it. The audio lacks very much bass but the high end is very clear. All in all, a good recording especially considering that the audio is sourced from VHS. I think that a fair, mass generalization for the recording would be like 8.8. The performance is what's important; always good to keep that in mind and, for me, this is one of the most endearing versions of Hooker With A Penis I've yet experienced. Stinkfist basically gets fisted, well, you can hear for yourself: band difficulty & technical issues. Whew. The DVD has a little bit of analogue noise (at very bottom of screen) but it is not bad at all, worth noting though. The 1G>DVD is a much needed improvement on the various VHS copies floating out there.

Maynardism:
"Sorry if I seemed a little testy, just, my estrogen levels are kinda peaking & I'm a little emotional. As soon as the operation goes through, I'm sure my mood swings will stabilize"
