Who Is This Turd, Anyway?


I can ignore this bullshit all I want, but scarily, in 2006, some people still think this way. Though the one thing I agree with him about is that Alice Cooper and The Stooges certainly have a right to be inducted (not at the expense of Patti or The Ronettes). But this is the problem with the concept of the RNR Hall of Fame, who’s gotta right, and who decides, and ultimately, who cares?

Pot Calling the Kettle White

I’ll take pasty as an insult. The sun and I don’t get along much these days and I’d rather not turn my skin to luggage before I’m 40. An Irish dude making fun of a Jewish girl’s paleness sounds like a joke I’d hear at the Shamrock.

I could stand to be a bit more po-faced about my on-and-off again writing career. Otherwise, my writing would be appearing on more glossy surfaces in the present and not-so-distant past. A Serious Writer would have no time for drag shows and record stores. A serious writer also would have voted for Bruce, Dylan, The Hold Steady, and TV on the Radio, none of which interests me. Am I missing out? Quite possibly, but I’m too busy to care.

I’d be honored if my boring writing took down the Voice’s P&J poll, something that’s been on this Earth as long as I have, but I haven’t written for the Voice since 2000 at the latest, and it’s rare that my fave artists and albums ever even make the Top 10 or 20. There are plenty of other more important boring writers who’ve been voting and writing a lot longer than I have. And New Times is doing an even better job than all of us of killing The Voice and alt-weekly publications across the country.

If you’re wondering, I didn’t vote in P&J this year.

But on the whole, I’d rather be a pasty, po-faced, on-and-off again critic than a bully and a shill. A pretty, petty shrill one at that.

Also, a good chunk of my Idolator choices were pretty Philebrity-friendly (and Philebrity player) titles: CSS, Peaches, Camera Obscura, Goldfrapp. Hot Chip (I’m probably in the army of one with the Susanna Hoffs-Matthew Sweet record).

The last time I checked, a poll is for voting for records you heard and liked, not being a cheerleader for Philadelphia, which I did for four years and then some. Clockcleaner is more of a live experience for me, and I still haven’t heard Spankrock, and about 1000 other things. And that’s what keeps things fun.

In case you were wondering: babies and dogs, still cute.

I look forward to ruining more music polls with you.

Thanks to everyone who took the time listen or write back to me and Maria. It means a lot. I’m sorry for taking so long to respond. This is the first time I’ve been in front of a computer all day.

Not only was this a hoax, but it was someone impersonating this group. There was also a similar exchange with Philebrity. Myspace has been contacted and there will be more legal action taken.

okay. the update is that it’s a hoax – a fake myspace account was set up called ‘philly’s pissed/philly stands up’. you can tell because it says it’s a 20-year-old female. [ours says we’re a 35-year-old man.] someone set up this fake account and sent this fake call-out to plain parade.

it was not us.

we’re sorry that this happened.

questions can be directed towards me.

thanks lots,

Take Back The … ?

The sweet delicious irony of feminists threatening other feminists right now is kind of lost on me. Though a couple of West Philly friends have intervened, today I’m just feeling angry. For those who haven’t already gotten Plain Parade’s missive, read it on Maria’s blog.

Trying To Sing


PIERRE, S.D. – South Dakota lawmakers approved a ban on nearly all abortions Friday, setting up a deliberate frontal assault on Roe v. Wade at a time when some activists see the U.S. Supreme Court as more willing than ever to overturn the 33-year-old decision.

Republican Gov. Mike Rounds said he was inclined to sign the bill, which would make it a crime for doctors to perform an abortion unless it was necessary to save the woman’s life. The measure would make no exception in cases of rape or incest.

I’ve been depressed ever since I read this. What sort of mean-spirited person makes this kind of law in 2006 and why?

Not really related: last night I dreamt I was at karaoke and Jerk Jerkinelli was yelling out to me from the side, “Saaaaaaaaaaaaaaraaaaaaaaaaaah,” and bugging me like I was at work. I was like, “Dude, go away, I’m trying to sing.”

No Alphabet, No Sex


I love how everyone got the genius idea today to buy music for their loved ones, it’s a nice idea, but I want to say, sorry, you’re not getting laid tonight, you’re too stupid. Especially if you’re buying her Mariah Carey.

By the way, don’t tell me you looked for something and couldn’t find it when there are three rows of it right IN FRONT OF YOUR FACE!

But today, my heart goes out to the 12,000 Hurricane Katrina survivors who are now homeless while other chumps used the FEMA money for $450 tattoos, porn, and condos. Maybe next time Cheney should shoot Brownie by accident.

Don t worry, it is not the last of pea-time…
The most simple way is to visit our site, order the
medication and that is all you are to do!

Do not kill the clock!

Dear readers, what does it all mean?
