I would want to be called Sandwich Spice. Everybody loves sandwiches.

Throwing out half the bun is not the same as throwing out half the sandwich.

My second or third night I’d ever been in San Francisco was in May of 1997, and I spent the whole night sitting at a rented Mac on the floor of Moscone Center listening to the Creeper Lagoon e.p. on repeat. I’d bought it, hand to hand, from Sharky Laguna a few nights earlier at a Jad Fair/CL show Michael Ferguson took me to. Mentioned here because, just over ten years later, I’m sitting here,...

I dunno. I guess I’m afraid that if I let myself get one white supremacy face tattoo, then it’d be hard to keep myself from wanting a couple dozen more. I know I’m definitely like that with potato chips, anyway.
Every time Salon calls their website’s reader comments “Letters,” somewhere, a fancy high society gent’s monocle shatters.
If I ever did make good on my promise to make people with Ph.D.’s call me “Bachelor Mann” (owing to my prestigious Bachelor of Arts degree), I wonder how that might be abbreviated. Maybe “Br. Mann”? I like the similarity to the analogous abbreviation for “doctor.” Related: did I ever mention I used to work with a guy who was so pleased with himself for getting a Ph.D. that he had a rubber stamp...

I’m thinking of emailing the writers whose work I enjoy slightly rephrasing to see if they will accept requests. I can’t retype it until they write it. So: chop chop.

My cab driver last night smelled like a bong filled with chicken fingers, and, without provocation, he spun me a 10-minute tale about how his old dispatcher (who was a total crook that stole cocaine from everyone) recently died when he fell through a glass coffee table, and the broken shard stabbed all the way through the man’s torso, slicing open his “bad liver.” I felt like the wedding guest...
Bligter: Making blogging easier Via a del.icio.us spammer comes a fascinating new resource for publishers. Apparently, Bligter is “Making blogging easier” by answering the eternal question, “Are you unable to maintain your blog updated?” Ostensibly, this service will both accept and distribute blog posts that can then be reused as content on your own site. Thus, sparing you the awkward trouble...
