A Few Items Worth Your Attention On This Snowy Sunday Morn

by matttbastard

Is much too chilly and inhospitable today in my neck of the woods to even think about venturing into the not-so-great outdoors. So, in lieu of going to church (snicker) or, more realistically, a greasy spoon for hangover mitigation, here are several worthy distractions that can be enjoyed from the comforts of home:

Sunday Blogwhoring: Armistice Anxiety

by matttbastard

Desperately need a personal assistant to keep up with my rapidly expanding agenda. Rest assured I’d never be so intemperate an employer as the late Linda Stein, former manager of the Ramones, who was recently bludgeoned to death by her PA (Natavia don’t play that Naomi Campbell diva bullshit, y0!) Obviously, this is all wishful speculation on my part; before hiring anyone to manage my affairs I’d first need to secure an income stable enough to support myself financially, let alone an employee.

Love don’t pay the bills, y0–unless you own the publishing rights to Arthur Lee’s back catalogue.
