headlines


the world has been turning even though i havent posted in a few days. while ive been busying myself with all manner of unnecessary distractions, sports teams have played games and lost, others have won. celebrities have gotten pregnant and frolicked topless in the Mediterranean sea. policemen have murdered innocents and been found not guilty. politicians have lied and received awards for it. here are some stories of note i heard in the last few days:

Prince played the Coachella festival. This itself is reason enough to gasp and hold your hand to your mouth. from everything i have heard, the Purple Ones performances are mind blowing, nothing less than a religious experience. i had a friend that saw him a few years ago at the Fillmore in San Francisco and he said that by the end of the show strangers were hugging each other with tears in their eyes. thats no exaggeration [well, not on my part at least]. the little man's shows are legendary. this i can conclude as fact. there was no doubt in my mind he would be the talk of Coachella this year, no up-and-coming hipster band or reunited grunge has-beens could top a show by one mr. roger nelson. and dont even get me started on the fact that he brought out Morris Day to do "Jungle Love" and Sheila E to do "Glamorous Life." but there was one more aspect of the show even i didnt expect. something that, on paper, sounds like it could be the greatest sonic experience -- i'll go ahead and say it -- EVER. Prince doing a Radiohead cover.

some austrian guy kept his daughter locked up in a dungeon for 24 years. during this time he raped and fathered seven of her kids [which he also kept locked up in the dungeon]. i dont understand this for many reasons. most notably, that the father was already married to his wife [the girls mother, no less] and she was oblivious to this torture the entire time. how do you go blind to a family of prisoners trapped somewhere in your home for 24 years? at some point there must have been a baby crying or something? speaking of, how did they deliver the babies? how did he bring them food without the wife knowing? and dont even get me started on the fact that he was having sex with his daughter. disturbingly enough, this little tidbit has taken a back seat to the rest of the story. this is a horror i cant even wrap my head around. i think i'll pass on visiting Austria. between this sicko, arnold schwarzenegger, and hitler, nothing much good comes out of it.

a record company paid for and produced a music video for a song titled, "Let Me Smell Your Dick." its not a joke either, from what i can tell. that young lady has the soul of a poet. she also has pretty unorthodox tactics when it comes to finding out if her man cheated on her with a stripper.

ive been addicted to Scrabulous. i love it. if anyone wants to get a game going with me, just hit me up.

there is plenty more to write, but i dont have the time. ill try again tonight. maybe. we'll see. probably not.
