- "John Legend" All the frustration and cussing at my computer while I tried again and again and again and again to get through to the online box office paid off. Gots me 4 tickets to the Oct. 9th show and I'm selling 2 of them. In case you don't have it: 773-308-5613.
- "Insanity" I got a call from my mom today at about 1 pm. She asked me if I remembered a plumber named Kermit who did our basement and she fought with over his crappy work. I said yes. Well, turns out Kermit fell on hard times and picked up a coke habit. Yesterday, he murdered his parents b/c they wouldn't give him any cash and then holed himself up in the veterans' hospital until police finally arrested him. So, yeah, the pipes in my house were put in by a coked out double-murderer. Wtf.
- "Brendan Ayanbadejo" Is a brave man. Not just b/c he puts his body on the line every week for the Baltimore Ravens either. Ayanbadejo is brave more for his willingness to fight for causes he believes in. He came out in support of a same-sex marriage advocacy group called "Equality Maryland". Props to TBL.
- "Kiddieland" If you're from the Chicago area - and have a soul - you should be crushed right now. After 80 years, Kiddieland will be closing at the end of the week.
Because we live in the prudest country not ending in "-ran" or "-raq", there's been some uproar over a new ad promoting breast cancer awareness. Watch the video, and, if you like breasteses like I like breasteses, 10 bucks says you'll be out in the streets tomorrow campaigning for more awareness. Props HuffPost.
