News wrapup

  1. Kristen took a stand. South Orange County strippers disapprove of the London terror bombings, in case you wondered if they were straddling the issue. (via myspace chain letter).
  2. I think the time has come in pop music for tribute bands to have their own tribute bands. Some of these guys have more than passed the M*A*S*H threshold and outlasted their idols by decades. Pick your local tribute band and start giving them the due they’ve earned. Around here I suggest: “Two Doors Down, a Tribute to Wild Child” and “Drive Their Car, a tribute to Rain“. You probably have your own local meta-heroes to emulate. Come to think of it, I bet wossisname Cafferty already has tribute bands.
  3. Can’t seem to face up to the facts; tense and nervous, can’t relax.

  1. I think at one point a while back I suggested that John Cafferty was now playing in a John Cafferty tribute band. How’s that for meta?
    Nonetheless your ideas make sense. As a kid I had an imaginary parody band, the Loons Till Death (which, disturbingly, later released real albums without me, but that’s another story.) I hereby create an imaginary tribute band to honor my imaginary parody band.
    I think it’s time to admit that thing in my grip is not reality but a rusty hacksaw.
