Accepting That I Might Not Be The Most Metal in My Family

It is an issue that has long been debated in my household – who is the most metal member of our family? This question generally results in a four way tie since we all invariably vote for ourselves. Hmph. Each family member has their own reasons and as much as my friend White assures me […]

Wow. EVERYBODY is on LinkedIn

Damn. Felix Mendelssohn is out of my network. Seriously people, can I get an introduction around here? You know who else is on LinkedIn? Bach, Beethoven, Mozart… I don’t mean to be crass, but I was under the impression that you had to be alive to have a profile. I guess I was mistaken.

Ride The Wienermobile

They Must Be Learning Something at School

Ian: How do you spell we? Claudia: W – E . Ian: No, not that kind of we. Claudia: W – I – I . Me: agape
