Iggy Rose’s Fantastic Birthday Bash
Iggy’s online birthday festivities started in 2011 as
Rose's Fantastic Birthday Bash! Its instigator was not the Church,
but – and we quote – "artist and general troublemaker Jenni
Fiire who promised an online celebration to show Iggy Rose how much
we love and appreciate her on her birthday. A groovy electronic party!"
The result was that literally hundreds of messages reached Iggy Rose
that day. Whatever happened to Jenni Fiire, we sometimes wonder? She
disappeared without a trace.
Something to watch: Iggy's Electronic Birthday Card
An electronic birthday card that we made in 2011 featured a home-movie
of Iggy and the wishes at the end show the bumpy ride that history often
makes. Does anyone remember the Facebook groups
Clowns & Jugglers
and No Man’s Land? Supposedly this was even before Birdie
Hop was created and many of its members are still around.

Crystal Blue Postcards
Also in 2011 an electronic book of poems and art, dedicated to Syd and
his muses, was published at the Holy Church. These poems were written by
Denis Combet (with some help from Constance Cartmill and Allison Star).

version of the Iggy poem De Quétesh à Bastet), check: Catwoman.
In Iggy We Trust, Rich Hall & Porthos
Rich Hall brought an acoustic rendition of his
mulit-million dollars selling hit In Iggy We Trust (aka The
Reverend), with some valuable assistance from his dog Porthos. It
was meant to be included in our annual Iggy Birthday post, but it became
a fitting eulogy instead.
Iggy We Trust
Suddenly there’s a tear in my eyes. Those dust devils,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY IGGY ROSE!
We've got from a very good source that Brian, Jimi, George and Syd are
preparing a surprise party. There will be a helluva time in heaven, we
guarantee you that.
The Church wishes to thank Constance Cartmill , Denis Combet, Jenni
Fiire, Rich Hall, Porthos, Allison Star, Jean Vouillon and all the
others that we seem to have forgotten...
