NEWS FOR YOU
Would investing in comic books have been a better idea than stocks?
The cable companies have been ripping you off for $5.00 a month for the last decade. Surprised?
John Landers of the Freedomland Historical Society writes: I am seeking ANYBODY from the New York City area that has somewhere in the private collection a TV or Radio commercial for Freedomland Amusement Park in the Bronx from the early 1960's. The words to the specific commercial we badly need began like this: 'Mommy and Daddy take my hand and take me out to Freedomland. Two Ninty-five is all you'll pay at Freedomland today...." I have formulated a committee to place a plaque on the site in the Bronx where the entrance gates to Freedomland were. If you can assist just by putting out feelers to your vast audience in hopes that anyone has this commercial I would be eternally grateful and the person providing it will be our honored guest at the unveiling of the plague next summer. Write to me and I'll pass it along to John.

I just read your appalling interview in Gate City Music and feel compelled to write and inform you that you are a vile person in urgent need of spiritual and psychological help.
Musicians like yourself serve as role models for our youngsters. Openly flaunting your drunken wantonness is a disservice to the community and an affront to God. As an example, what kind of a response to a question is, “I’m a little too drunk to remember stuff like that”?
Flip comments like “A lot of the lyrics are about past substance abuse” almost makes it sound as if you're proud of your aberrant behavior. If, in fact, a typical Funny Like a Funeral Show consists of, “Seven or eight drunk kids standing around,” might I suggest you go into another line of work? It sounds as if the marketplace has spoken rather loudly that your brand of Godless buffoonery is too gross even for our course society.
The story you told about your band spending "all their cash at the bar because everything was on sale for a dollar" and then having to be rescued out of the gutter like a litter of worm ridden kittens speaks volumes about moral character. If the four of you can't scrape together $12.00 between you perhaps you should stay home and watch television rather than staggering around in a drugged and drunken state while good Christians shield their children's eyes because you spent your last dollar on an alcoholic drink.
I hope this bit of constructive criticism will set you on the right path. If you don't repent, Jesus will have a place for you in the afterlife - and it's not the VIP Room. Not that you're likely to discover what a VIP Room looks like in this lifetime anyway.

"The thing that hurts, that became anger, was when I realized that if you tell the truth — in a country that says you're entitled to tell the truth — you get your face slapped and you get put out of work," she told told Essence magazine in the 1980s. Jimmy Carter invited her back to the White House in 1978.
If you ever get a chance to listen to any of her live concert tracks by all means do so - they're s campy and vampy, she never lost her hold on the audience which, in later years, tended to be very internationale and predominantly gay.

This story has me dumbfounded - Cook's Source magazine has been pilfering stories, pictures and recipes from web sites and books and printing them without permission or paying the people who originally created the content. Since it was discovered the editor has been playing dumb and ignoring the increasing complaints from ripped off writers.
Henry Fonda's 1959-61 TV western The Deputy is now out on DVD - more about that later.

This rescue kitty was 7 weeks old and discovered up in a tree so my friend Misty called the fire department and they actually came out. Well, they brought the ladder but they told Misty she had to climb it herself. Not sure if that's an insurance thing or the fact that Misty is very attractive and they just wanted to watch her climb the ladder.
Anyway, she took him to the vet and the brought him to my place and basically told me I had to take him. I'm glad she did because he's becoming a very good cat but boy was he wild, still is somewhat. Here the rescue kitty tries to navigate this standing lamp I have and chase his tail at the same time. Awwwwwwwww!

Randy Quaid needs to get back to Hollywood for his 'Robert Downey Jr' career bump now that arrest warrants are flying around him. Instead he's seeking asylum. Needs to be in one.
Cher's making news with her bold comments about Chaz, Sonny, and Sarah Palin in a new Vanity Fair interview - Cher always was outspoken after breaking with Sonny but she doesn't do that many interviews. Doesn't have to!
