I've been around both sides of this story, so it's tough to have a lot of sympathy either way, but one of my pals stumbled across this disgruntled band bitching on MySpace about their experiences at a club, and the guy from the club's response.
(screencaps Here, Here, and Here as I'll imagine the band will pull 'em down at some point.)
The part I liked the best was when the guy in the band said "For some reason, the show started about a half an hour late, so we were stuck sitting there for way longer than we wanted to be." and then "Now, it's show time! It's after 11:30 PM and we're all tired."
Man oh man. Welcome to rock and roll.
Some Flying Spahghetti Monster goodness:
Hand-knitted "Holiday Tree" Topper
Flying Spaghetti Mazda
Q: What is the difference between a banjo and an onion?
A: Nobody cries when you cut up a banjo.
More "good" Banjo jokes.
Fascinating story about a guy who faked a Norman Rockwell painting so his wife wouldn't get it in their divorce.
I guess the painting was good enough to fool a whole bunch of people for 30 years.

Subject: Request for Staff
Dear Ms. Sanchez:
I recently became the manager of a governmental agency that had a recent unexpected downsizing in force. Even though I realize it's 10 PM at night, I need replacements very quickly. I am looking for experienced staff in the following areas:
**Torture Specalist I and Torture Specalist II
Also, if they could all arrive at once and come into the building like the models on Deal or No Deal so they would look intimidating to the remaining staff, that would be great.
Thanks in advance,
Department of Homeland Security, Los Angeles
Star Wars themed home theater made up to look like the Death Star.
Designed by Doug Chiang, so you know it's whip-ass.
In (related?) Star Wars news, here's a video of Darth Vader rapping with Redd Foxx as Obi Wan Kenobi.
Last night I had a dream about work where we were marketing all of these lego spaceships that were kinda like transformers but all of the little lego pilots had Brad Torreano's face on them. Not like a photo of Brad, but still yellow and round, but the mouth kinda curled up at one side and the eye on that side squinted just a little tiny bit, so that when you looked at it you said "Man that looks like Brad Torreano."
Same to you, screwball.
OK, so the website Matt Tobey and I have been working on is almost ready. Tune in on Monday night or Tuesday morning and I'll tell you what it's all about.
Contrary to what some people have speculated to me, it is not us publicly proclaiming our gay love for each other. We keep that private.
