Respectful Insolence

One last photo from my afternoon at Venice Beach a couple of weeks ago.

All I want to ask is this:

Is this Alice Cooper’s daughter?

Dark eyeliner like Dad’s?

Check.

Huge snake like Dad’s?

Check.

It could be.

Or is this her below?

    The funny thing is that Alice Cooper is now a golf playing suburbanite. I ran into him at an Arizona Diamonback’s game a few years ago and he was wearing a pink Izod golf shirt.

    Cool quote from Wikipedia: My daughter comes home and she says, “You know what the problem is, dad? You’re cooler than my friends.”

    It always makes me a little nervous to see people carry their pet constrictor draped around their neck. Yes, your snake may be very mellow and naturally relaxed in a crowd, but what if it did get startled, wrapped itself around your throat, and cut off your breathing? Snake owners, please reply and tell me I’m worrying for nothing.

    Vasha, you aren’t worried about nothing, but a snake isn’t considered a potential danger until it reaches between 6-8 feet in length. But then, a snake that is startled and upset is more likely to bite than squeeze. So even though there is a risk of accidental strangulation with a snake, it’s really unlikely.

    I used to live with a snake owner and spent time at the local exotic pets shop asking questions.

    At the precise moment I am reading your blog post and looking at the pic of Alice, who should appear on my television but dear Alice (nee Vince) himself. I will admit that the movie running is “Wayne’s World”, ahem. BTW, glad to hear you had a good time in my old stomping grounds! (I know that “gargoyle house”).

    The snake in the picture is a Burmese Python and they can be quite gentle. There is very little risk of constriction to the owner/handler because most snakes know enough not to kill what they can’t eat. A snake usually will not strangle it’s own perch be it human or tree.

    Hop in the water with a good sized green anaconda though and you may get a hug.

    Sorry, upon closer inspection that appears to be a reticulated python. They can be nasty but still little risk to the owner.

    Well, I guess it is one way of keeping at least some of the men at a distance (honestly though, I would definitely try to get into a talk with her – anyone who carries their snake around like that gotta be at least somewhat interesting).

    Oh, I’m aware of that. He’s been living in Arizona and playing golf for many years. Indeed, during the 1970′s, at the height of his popularity, I seem to recall his being quoted as wanting to play golf with Bing Crosby.

    She can see my badgers and mushrooms any time to go with her snake! <3

    Orac… I’m sorry that I didn’t know you were going to be visiting the area — I would have invited you to dinner. There’s a great Italian place a couple of blocks from the pier where you (probably) took the pelican pictures. I grew up nearby and still live fairly close.

    That’s not Alice Cooper’s daughter… she’s just one of many cookie-cutter “individuals” we’ve got out here.

    BTW, please stop posting pictures of people wearing shorts and short-sleeves in the middle of winter. You just caused another 20 or so people to decide to move here and it’s crowded enough!

    It wasn’t the middle of winter when I took these; it was on March 22.

    Thanks for the invite, though. The AACR is in L.A. next year; I should keep it in mind.

    Many many years ago, Rosey was kicked out of high school English class for wearing a similar snake drape (brother’s ball python). Promise….no such attire at next years meeting in LA.
