Have you been to googlism? Type in your name and find out what the internet thinks about you. For example, I typed in kittenpants and got "kittenpants is eternal." Awesome. Now look what happens when I type in my (shh!) real name.
That shit is crazy! Speaking of which, thanks to the Seattle Talent-show-guy who inspired this issue's title. I know you didn't win the talent show, guy, but if you find me, I'll send you a CD for your efforts.
Buy CLAIRE ZULKEY'S NEW BOOK. While you're at it, buy DAVE BARRINGER'S BOOK as well. And as long as I'm telling you what to do, go see Cathy Cervenka perform Cheap Trick at Arlene's on Nov 2, but not before you see Pink Steel and Corn Mo (for free!) at Parkside on Nov 1, followed by a trip to Brooklyn for the Psychos! 2nd birthday party (at "the orphanage" - 383 S. 1st, WIliamsburg), as they are joined by THE CHILLING, THRILLING SOUNDS OF THE HAUNTED HOUSE (a Misfits tribute).
Whew! That was a mouthful. [insert joke].
I AM on your side.
