Fuck, man. Periods: they’re the difference between a “rambling suicide note” and a… regular old suicide note. Punctuation: get into it. If you’re gonna make your mark or whatever, make actual marks; be clear. Be articulate. I do realize that the implied audience in this case has killed himself.

Many people who value skill in music enjoy “Jam Bands,” a concept started by The...– Me, in a paper that I’m writing right now (via gnomechomsky). You go. This made me lawl.
Midtown Bar Options
There’s a stretch of decent bars in the vicinity of the Empire State Building: Galway Hooker 1 E. 36th Street. Irish pub meets club. Pub fare, full bar.

Wahlberg & Ferrell cast as second-rate cops →
Hoping for greatness. But more-OBER, hoping that Michael Keaton in the cast means a long-overdue reappearance of his most awesome recurring character, agent Ray Nicolette. If not, at least name him Ray. Give us something.
